(a) Rs.16
(b) Rs.14
(c) Rs.12
(d) Rs.20
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Suppose the cost of one pen is Rs. X and the cost of one pencil is Rs. Y.
8x + 4y = 176 ………(i)
2x + 2y = 48 ………(ii)
On multiply by 2 in Eq. (ii), we get

On subtract Eq. (iii) from Eq. (i), we get
4x = 80
x = 20
So, the cost of one pen = Rs.20

Q10. The angles of a quadrilateral are in the ratio of 2:4:7:5. The smallest angle of the quadrilateral is equal to the smallest angle of a triangle. One of the angle of the triangle is twice the smallest angle of the triangle. What is the second largest angle of the triangle?
(a) 75
(b) 60
(c) 50
(d) 80

S10. Ans. (b)
Sol. Let angles of quadrilateral = 2x, 4x, 7x, and 5x
Hence,
2x + 4x + 7x + 5x = 360°
Or, x = 20°
Smallest angle = 2x = 40° = smallest angle of a triangle.
Another angle of the triangle = 80°
Hence, desired second largest angle of the triangle = 180° -80° – 40° = 60°

(b) Rs. 8.85
(c) Rs. 15.70
(d) Rs. 16.50
S14. Ans.(c)
Sol. Outer dimensions
will be as follows:
Length = 86 + 4 = 90
cm, Breadth = 46 + 4 = 50 cm
and Height h = 38 + 2
= 40 cm
So, the area of outer
surface = l × b + 2 × l × h + 2 × b × h
= 4500 + 7200 + 4000
= 15700 cm2
= 1.57 m2
So, the cost of
painting 1.57 × 10 = Rs. 15.7
