1. E) Tricks –check the option
OR
Let cost price of article B be Rs X
Cost of article A = Rs (X-140)
According to the question
18 *100=40(X-140) -20x
X= 370

2. D)
A’s present age = X years
B’s present age = (X+18) years
C’s present age =2X years
According to the question
(X+18+6)/2X= 3/2
X=12
So B’s present age =30
B’s age 4 years ago= 26 years

3. B)
Let time taken by C = X days
So time is  taken by B be 2X days
According to the question
(2X.X)/(X+2X)=40/3
X=20
C=20days
B=40 days
Let A alone can finish the work in Y days
According to questions,
Y= {(40*Y)/(40+Y) } * 160/100
Y=24 days

4. C) Tricks option
Ans must be dived by (3+1)=4
So 250 is possible
Let the ans. 200 So milk was 150 water was 50
After 1/25 was taken out milk will withdraw 6 litres and water will withdraw 2lt
So new milk will be 144. water will be 50-2+24=72
So they are 2:1 satisfy the ratio.
So. an. will be 200

5. B)
15-12-(15*12)/100 = 1.2 %

6. A)
Initial amount with Mr Amit = Rs X
Amount given to on and daughter = Rs 3x/4
Son : daughter = 2: 3
Daughter’s share = (3/5 * 3x/4)=9x/20
9x/20=24300
X=54000

7. C)

8. D)
According to first condition
Rate =100/T
According to second condition
Time =2T years
So SI * 100= 5450 *100/T * 2T
SI= 10900
Amount =10900+5450= 16350

9. A)4800

10.A) Suppose Ravi invested Rs 100 in scheme A , then
A B
Investment 100 120 (=100 +20)
Interest 120 72(12*5=60%)
According to the question 52 = Rs 1300
∴P=100= (1300 *100)/52=Rs 2500
