SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Rs. 1 : 50 paise : 25 paise
No. of coins 8x : 5x : 3x
Value of coins 8x/1 ∶5x/2 ∶3x/4
∴ 8x+5x/2+3x/4= Rs. 225,
Given (32x+10x+3x)/4=225
4x = 225 × 4
x=(225×4)/45=5×4=20

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol.
A : B : C
5 : 2
7 : 13
(35∶14∶26)
35x + 14x + 26x = 75x = 750
x = 10
∴ A’s share
= 3x = 35 × 10 = Rs. 350

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. P : Q : R = 2 : 7 : 9
P + Q = R (given)
2x + 7x = 9x
Here we don’t have sufficient data to insure the values of A, B & C

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let total work be 50 units
4/5× any multiple of 5
A does 4/5th of work → 4/5×50
= 40 units in 20 days
So,
A does 2 units/day
Work left: 50 – 40 = 10 units
A’s 3 days work = 2 units/day × 3 days
= 6 units
∴ Left work = 10 – 6 = 4 units
So,
B’s work per day =4/3
B’s will do whole work =50/(4/3)=37 1/2 days
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. According to question,
If the total work is 23 units A and C completed 19 units together it means 23 – 19 = 4 units is completed by B
So amount paid to B is =4/23×575 = Rs. 100
S11. Ans.(d)
Sol. CP of radio =286/130×100
= Rs. 220
SP of radio =286×90/100 = Rs. 257.4
= Profit = 257.4 – 220 = Rs. 37.4
S12. Ans.(a)
Sol. CP of the cycle =840×90/100×100/126 = Rs. 600
S13. Ans.(d)
Sol. Let CP of article = Rs. 100
= SP of article =100×110/100×90/100
= Rs. 99
= Loss% =(100 – 99)/100×100 = 1%
S14. Ans.(c)
Sol. Single discount =20+40-(20 × 40)/100
= 52%
S15. Ans.(b)
Sol. CP of item
=250×92/100×100/115= Rs. 200
