b) Rs.6000

c) Rs.5000

d) Rs.5500

e) Rs.4500

Check the Answers for the Above Questions Below.

Q.1) a

Weight of each mango = 160gm

Weight of each apple is = 240gm

Weight of each Oranges = 400gm

Total weight = 5120gm

5120 – (160 X 6 + 240 X 4) = 5120 – (960+960) = 3200

Then, the number of oranges = 3200/400 = 8

Q.2) d

Balls faced by G and H = 51 + (2/3) * 51 = 51 + 34 = 85 Balls

Remaining balls = 120 – 85 = 35

Total score of G and H = 72 * 2 = 144 Balls

Total score of the team = 144 * (3/2) = 216

Score of remaining balls = 216 – 144 = 72

Required percentage = (72/35) X 100 = 205.7% ~205%

Q.3) b

Let the average cost of each book bought (of 40 books) be Rs.x

According to the question,

56(x+1)-40x=216 => 16x+56-40x=216

16x=160 => x=10

Required average price =10+1=11

Alternate method:

There are 40 books available in library if 16 books are purchased by spending Rs 216, average per book will increase by Re 1.

It means each book shares one rupee

So, cost of 16 books=216-56=160

Cost of 1 book=10(old average price)

New average price =10+1=11

Q.4) e

Sum of height of family = 4×173 = 692 cm

Height of the family after new one added=171×5=855 cm

Height of the new person=855-692= 163 cm

Alternate method:

Member             Height

4                     173

4+1=>5            171

New person height=>171-8=163cm

Q.5) b

Suppose the initial expenditure per day = Rs.x

Total expenditure=40 * x

Now, according to question,

40x + 96 = (x-1) * 48

40x + 96 = 48x – 48

8x = 144

x = Rs.18

So, Initial expenditure would be 18 × 40 = Rs.720


There are 40 students available in hostel if 8 students are added expenditure increases by Rs 96 per day, average expenditure per student reduces  by Re 1.

It means each students expenditure reduces by one rupee

So, expenditure of 8 students=96+48=144

Expenditure of 1 student=18 (old average price)

Initial expenditure of food per day=40*18=720

Q.6) e

Let x be the number of clerks in a company



Alternate method::

Manager                Clerk

15000                    6000


2000                      7000

—-> 2:7

—-> 20:70

So the number of clerks is 70

Q.7) e

Required Average = 72.5- [ (83-38) / 12 ] = 68.75

Q.8) c

Let the marks obtained be 7a, 4a, 3a, 4a respectively.

So, the average marks obtained = (7a+4a+3a+4a) / 4 =18 a / 4 = 4.5a

Let the maximum marks in the exam be y.

It is given that, y ×60/100 = 4.5a

Y = (4.5a×100)/60 = 7.5a

Hence required maximum % = 100×7a/7.5a = 93.33%

Q.9) e

let the number of boys be x and the number of girls be y.

Then,(x * 57 + 48  * y) / (x+y) = 54

57x + 48y = 54x + 54y

( x/y ) = (2/1)

Required  percentage = (1/2) ×100 = 50%

Alternate method:

Boys                    girls

57                         48


6                           3

2:1 —–>>> (1/2) * 100 = 50%

Q.10) d

Average = (4x + 5x + 2x) / 3

11x / 3 = 55

x = 15

Price of cheapest variety = 2x = Rs.30

Q.11) c

A’s share = (15000×4+(15000-4000)×8) = 148000

B’s share = (10000×4+(10000+4000)×8) = 152000

C’s share = 20000 × 4 = 80000

A’s share : B’s share : C’s share

148000 : 152000 : 80000

37 : 38 : 20

B’s share exceeds C’s share by,

Q.12) C

Ratio of their investment initially A,B& C = 1/3 ∶ 1/4 ∶ 1/5

A∶ B∶ C = 20∶ 15∶ 12

Profit ratio of A,B& C at the end of the year is,

A∶ B∶ C = 20×3+12×9∶ 15×3+12×9∶ 12×3+4×9 = 56∶ 51∶ 24

Q.13) A

Ravi investment = 6X + 6Y

Raja investment = 8Y + 4X

Ravi & Raja profits are equal,

6X + 6Y = 8Y + 4X

2X = 2Y =>X/Y =1

Q.14) C

A’s investment = 25000×6 + 11000×6

B’s investment = X×8 + (X-6000)×4

At the end of the year profits are equal,

25000×6 + 11000×6 = X×8 + (X-6000)×4

216000 = 8X + 4X– 24000 => X = Rs.20000 =Amount invested by B initially

Q.15) C

Ratio of investment of A & B = 50000∶ 25000 => 2∶ 1

Let the total income be Rs.X

Then actual share of B =(X/3) × 1 = X/3

There should be equal income for both A & B,

Then share given to B =X/2

Required percentage = ((X/2-X/3)/X) ×100= 16.67%

Q.16) D

Ratio of investment = 6:7:8

Ratio of time = 2:3:4

Ratio of profit = 12:21:32

From the question,

Q.17) B

Let the initial investment of A be X

B’s investment after 6 months is 4X

C’s investment after 8 months is 5X

Profit ratio of A,B & C is,

X×12∶ 4X×6∶ 5X×4 = 3∶ 6∶ 5

C’s share = 42000 × 5 /14 = Rs.15000

Q.18) c

Ratio of their investments for 1 year

=> 42x : 56x : 84x => 6 : 8 : 12 =3 : 4 : 6

B’ s share=4/13 * x=10000

Total profit = Rs.32500

Q.19) c

A: B: C: D =(5000×24:6000×24:8000×21:6000×18)=5×24:6×24:8×21:6×18


D’s share =9/45×9000=Rs.1800

Q.20) c

Profit Ratio=4x×3+2x×9:3x×12:6x×9+3x×3


Share of A=21500/43×10=Rs.5000
