Explanations:

Q.1) b

Q.2) d

Q.3) e

X=110

Q.4) a

Let x be the No of seats in each column

Row=112/100 x

X=60

Q.5) d

Difference=300000-204000=96000

Q.6) e

Q.7) d

From the question,

X= 30 kg

Weight of A = 30/2 = 15 kg

SHORTCUT:

A+B+C+D+E+F➔20(average)

B+D+E+F➔20+2.5

➔4*2.5=10

A+C=30

Since A and C are equal, A=C

A=30/2=15

Q.8) b

Total =

Class 6 = 56 – 1 = 55

Remaining = 225

4th + 8th = 4/5 of 5th and 7th

4th + 8th = 100

5th + 7th = 125

4th + 8th + 6th = 100 + 55 = 155

(6th + 8th)- (4th + 6th) = 6

8th-4th=6

4th = 47

6th = 55

8th = 53

Q.9) b

Total age of 12 boys = 360 years

Total age of first 7 boys is 280 years

Total age of last six boys is 120 boys

Required age of 7th boy :

X = 20 years.

SHORTCUT:

Number             Average

12                       30

7                         40 (7*10=70)

6                         20 [6*(-10)=(-60)]

➔10

7th person=20yrs

Q.10) e

Prime numbers between (100 – 150) = 101, 103, 107, 109, 113, 127, 131, 137, 139, 149
