Solutions for the above Questions:

  1. (b)

Sum of cost of 4 ruled and 2 unruled note=6×38=Rs.228

Sum of cost of 7 ruled and 8 unruled note=15×52=Rs.780

Sum of cost of 5 ruled and 6 unruled note=11×45=Rs.495

Total cost of 16 ruled and 16 unruled note=228+780+495=Rs.1503

Total cost of 8 ruled and 8 unruled notes=1503/2=Rs.751.5


  1. (c)

Let number of Dates eaten on the first day x,




First day=4

Fourth day=x+6=10

Last day=x+12=16

Average number of dates=30/3=10 dates

  1. (d)

Sum of cake pieces girls have=30×4=120

Number of boys=30×4+x×5=410


Average number of boys and girls in the class= (30+58)/2=44

  1. (d)

Average salary of Assembly members=237500/25=9500

Foreman salary=9500×110/100=Rs.10450

  1. (a)

The average salary dropped by Rs.50 for 26 of them, therefore the overall salary has dropped by,


The new TL’s salary should be Rs.1300 less than the old TL’s Salary=11000-1300=Rs.9700

  1. (c)

Number of chocolate = x

According to Renuka,


According to Ravi,


According to Ramya,


The value Satisfy all the above conditions are 91, 92 and 93.

The average is 92 chocolates in a pocket.

Required average=(91+92+93)/3=276/3=92 chocolates


  1. (c)

Ratio=2 : 5: 1 : 4

Let their salary=2x+5x+x+4x=12000×4


B’s salary=5×4000=20000

D’s salary=4×4000=16000

Average salary of B and D=verage salary of B and D=36000/2=Rs.18000


  1. (b)

According to the Question,



Solve the above two equations, we get

x=8 and y= 6

Average of two numbers= (8+6)/2=7


  1. (d)

Total weight of W, X &Y=46×3=138——(1)

Total weight of X, Y and Z=52×3=156—–(2)

Total weight of W, Y and Z=56×3=168——(3)

Total weight of W, X and Z=48×3=144——(4)

From 1, 2, 3 and 4,

W+X+Y+Z=202——— (5)

From 1& 5, Z=64 kg

From 2& 5, W=46 kg

From 3& 5, X=34 kg

From 4& 5, Y=58 kg

Average weight of W, Y and Z=168/3=56 kg


  1. (b)

Total weight of 19 boxes=19×11.5=218.5 kg

New average=11.5+0.4=11.9 kg

Total weight of 20 boxes=20×11.9=238 kg

The weight of new box=238-218.5=19.5 kg


  1. a)

The total age of husband & wife now = (27×2)+(6×2)= 66 yrs

Total age of husband, wife & child now = 24 × 3 = 72 yrs

Age of child = 72 – 66 = 6 yrs



  1. d)

Let the number of students initially in the class be N

(1)àThen, total Height = N × 180 ——————-(1)

Again the no of students increased = N + 5

(2)àThen, total height N + 5 students = (N+5)× 168 ———-(2)

(3)àThe total height of 5 new students = 5 × 146.4 = 732cm. –(3)

From 1,2 & 3,

(N + 5)×168 – 732 = N × 180

168N +840 – 732 = 180N => N = 9

Therefore , number of students in class = 9 + 5 = 14



  1. d)

No of even numbers below 401 = 200

No of even numbers below 251 = 125

No of even numbers between 251 & 401 = 75

Sum of first N even numbers = N(N+1)

Sum of even number between 251 & 401=[200(200+1) ]–[125(125+1) ]=24450

Average of even numbers between 251 & 401 = 24450/75 = 326


  1. b)

Arun’s present age = 37 yrs

Total age of family after 8 yrs from marriage = 30 × 3 = 90

Present age Arun & his wife = 37+33 = 70 yrs

Present age of arun, his wife & his son = 90 – 8×3 = 66

Present age of son = 70-66 = 4yrs.


  1. b)

Total score of cricketer for 11 matches = 11×44 = 484 runs

Total score of cricketer for first 6 matches = 6 × 42 = 252 runs

the average for the last 5 matches = (484-252)/5=46.



  1. C)

Let the number students be 100,


100×142 = 23×126 + 51×150 + 26×X

26X = 14200 – 2898 – 7650 => X = 140.4 = 140(Approx)


  1. a)

Total runs scored in first 15 overs = 120

Remaining runs to be scored = 557.5 – 120 = 437.5 runs

Run rate in 35 overs = 437.5/35 = 12.5 runs



  1. d)

Total weight of (A + B + C)= (75 × 3)= 225 kg.

Total weight of (B + D + E)= (102 × 3)kg = 306 kg

Adding both, we get: A + 2B + C + D + E = 225 + 306 kg = 531 kg

So, to find the average weight of A, B, C, D and E, we ought to know B’s weight, which is not given.

So, the data is inadequate.


  1. d)

Total age of A & (1)àB = 24 × 2 = 48 yrs —(1)

Total age of B & (2)àC = 20 × 2 = 40 yrs —(2)

Total age of A & (3)àC = 22 × 2 = 44 yrs —-(3)

From 1,2 & 3,

(4)àA + B+ C = 66 —————————(4)

From 1& 4, C= 18

From 2& 4, A= 26

From 3& 4, B= 22


  1. (C)

Let the average weight of 12 persons be X kg and the weights of the persons, entered the group for the

first time and second time be (P)and (P-34)kg respectively,

From the question,

(12X-250+P)/12 =X-6 => P=178

Another person (P-34)= 178 – 34 = 144

(12X-144)/12 =X-r => r=12

Therefore the overall change = 6 + 12 =18kg
