24 ÷ 6 × 12 + 3 – 2 = 44

24 × 6 + 12 ÷ 3 – 2 = 45

24 ÷ 6 – 12 + 3 × 2 = 46

24 + 6 ÷ 12× 3 – 2 = 47

**16. A man sold an item for RS 6,750 at a loss of 25%. What will be the selling price of same item if he sells it at a profit of 15% ?**

RS 10,530

RS 9,950

RS 10,350

RS 11,340

None of these

Ans:
C.P. of the item = ( 6750 ×100 )/75 = Rs 9000
So, Reqd. S.P. of the item = (9000 × 115)/100=Rs 10350

**17. The sum of the circumference of a circle and the perimeter of a rectangle is 132 cm. The area of the rectangle is 112 sq cm and breadth of the rectangle is 8 cm. What is the area of the circle ?**

616 sq cm

540 sq cm

396 sq cm

Noe of these

Ans:
Length of the rectangle = 112/8 = 14 cm, so perimeter= 44 cm,
Circumference= 132-44=88 cm,
R = (88 × 7 )/(2 ×22) = 14cm so by area will be 616

**18. The ratio between the angles of a quadrilateral is 6 : 3 : 4 : 5. The smallest angle of a triangle is one-fourth the largest angle of the quadrilateral. Largest angle of the triangle is 10° more than second largest angle of the triangle. What is the second largest angle of the triangle ?**

80°

60°

70°

50°

Ans:
The largest angle of the quadrilateral (6 ×360)/(6+4+3+5) = 120 degrees
Smallest angle of the triangle = 120 × 1/4 = 30 degrees
If second largest angle of the triangle = (x + 10)
So 30+ x+ x+10 = 180 , x = 70 degrees

**19. The average marks of nine students in a group is 63. Three of them scored 78, 69 and 48 marks. What are the average marks of remaining six students ?**

**20. A boat running upstream takes 640 min to cover a certain distance, while it takes 280 min to cover the same distance running down stream. What is the ratio between the speed of the boat and speed of water current respectively?**

23: 7

22: 9

23: 8

23: 9

Ans:
Let boat's rate upstream be x and boat's rate downstream by y.
Distance covered in 640 min = = Disance covered in 280 min
x * 640 = y * 280
16x = 7y
Required Ratio = (y + x)/2 : (y - x)/2
= (y + 7/16y) : (y - 7/16y) = 23 : 9
