Q.3)b.

Q.4)d

Q.5)c

Q.6) b

Total pens = 32 + 40 = 72

Equal share, so share of each =

Cost paid for extra pens = 36 – 32 = 4 pens

4pens = Rs.280

1 pen = 70

Q.7) e

Income ratio = 3x : 4x

Expenditure ratio

Savings of A = 3x-2y=800 —– (1)

Savings of B =4x-3y=800 —– (2)

Income of B

(Alternate method)

Income ratio 3x:4x

Rs.800 each savings

Expenditure=

Given

B’s monthly income=

Q.18) d

12 years hence ratio of wife to husband = 5 : 6

Ratio difference = 1 ratio = 6years

Husband’s age (12 years hence) = 6 ratio = 36 years

At the time of marriage = 36 – 12 years = 24years

(Alternate method)

Let husband’s age be H and wife age be W

(W+18)

Q.19) b

C.P of pen = x and C.P of Pencil = y

400x+900y=13400—–(1)

40x+180y=1880—–(2)

Solving both the equations, we get x=20 and y= 6

Therefore the cost of a pen is Rs.20.
