**Answer Key**

Q.1) b

MP= Rs960 discount= 20%

SP= 960×80/100=768

CP= 768×100/128=600

Required %=(960-600)/600= 60%

Q.2) e

Equivalent single discount for all schemes

scheme 1=12+12-(12×12/100)=22.56%

scheme 2=14+11-(14×11/100)=23.46%

scheme 3=15+5-(15×5/100)=19.25%

scheme 4=20%

scheme 5=15+20-(15×20/100)=32%

Q.3) a

MP= Rs x

X×(100-20)/100=80/100 X=4/5 X

CP=4/5 X×100/130=8/13X

CP has to increased by

(X-8/13 X)/(8/13 X)×100=62 1/2%

Q.4) b

Let cost price = Rs 100

An marked price= Rs 100+40=Rs 140

Required discount be x%

So

140×(100-x/100)=100

100-x=(100×100)/140

X=28.5%

Q.5) e

SP of laptop= Rs 457

Commission on one laptop=(4×457)/100

Commission on 10 laptops=(4×457×10)/100=Rs 182.80

SP of mobile= Rs 80

Commission on one mobile=(8×20)/100

Commission on 6 mobiles=(8×20×6)/100=Rs 96.00

Total commission on one day= (Rs 182.8+96) = 278.80

The amount of commission will he earn in two weeks = 278.8 ×14 = Rs.3903.2

Q.6) b

Let retail price= Rs 100

Commission= Rs 36

SP=100-36=64

Profit= 8.8%

CP=100/108.8×64=Rs 1000/17

New commission= RS 12

New SP=100-12=Rs 88

Gain=88-(1000/17)=496/17

gain %=496/17×17/1000×100=49.6%

Q.7) c

CP of 1 chocolate for 1st rate=Rs 1/4

CP of 1 chocolate for 2st rate=Rs 1/5

CP of 2 chocolate after mixing = 1/4+1/5=9/20

CP of 1 chocolate after mixing = 9/(20×2)=Rs 9/40

SP of 1 chocolate after mixing= Rs 1/4

gain=1/4-9/40=1/40

gain %=1/40×40/9×100=11 1/9%

Q.8) a

Total CP = (CP+ overhead expenses)

=150+12% of 150=Rs 168

Gain= 10%

SP=110/100×168=Rs 184.80

Q.9) b

Cost Price of One Book= 300(100/120) =300×5/6=Rs.250

Total amount of CP= 18×7×250=Rs 31500

Total amount of SP = 18×7 ×300 = 37800

Required profit = 37800- 31500 = Rs.6300

Q.10) a

CP=Rs x

1632-x=x-128

2x=1760

X=Rs 880

SP= 150% of 880=Rs 1320

Q.11) c

5x×3y×N1/100=12x×4y×N2/100

N1:N2=16:5

Q.12) a

a) P=Rs 8000 R=12% p.a N=5 years total=Rs 12800

b) P=Rs 10000 R=2% p.a N=5 years total=Rs 11,000

c) P=Rs 6000 R=5% p.a N=8 years total=Rs 8400

d) P=Rs 9000 R=10% p.a N=3 years Total=Rs 11700

e) P=Rs 8500 R=10% p.a N=4 years total= Rs 11900

Q.13) d

(x×R×5)/((x+2000)×3R×5)=5/21

X=Rs 5000

Q.14) d

12000×R×5/100-9000× R/2×8/100=2160

R=9%

Q.15) e

Can’t be determined as data inadequate

Q.16) c

x×5×6/100+(8000-x)×8×4/100=2000×2×11.75/100+2000

X=Rs 4500

Q.17) b

[(10000×12×3/100+10000)+(12000×8×2/100+12000) ]×8×R/100=11008

R=5%

Q.18) c

Total interest=500+(500×3)=2000

Q.19) a

Sum=(Diff in interest×100)/(Time ×Diff in Rate)=30×100/(3×2)=500

Q.20) d

1000×5× x/100+800×11/2×x/100=376

X=4
