(a) 25%
(b) 50%
(c) 38%
(d) 43.75%

Q2. Ans. (b)

% decrease in area = 64 π – 36 π / 64 π x 100 = 43.75%

Q3. The sum of three consecutive odd numbers is 20 more than the smallest number. What is the middle number?
(a) 7
(b) 9
(c) 11
(d) 5

Q3. Ans. (b)

Let the numbers be x, x + 2 and x + 4. Then
x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = x + 20
x = 7
So the middle number is 9.

Q4. A fruit seller had some apples. He sells 40% apples and still has 420 apples. Originally, he had:
(a) 600 Apples
(b) 700 Apples
(c) 500 Apples
(d) None of these

Q4. Ans. (b)
Sol.
Suppose originally he had x apples.
Then, (100 – 40)% of x = 420.
60/100 × x = 420
x = (420 x 100)/60 = 700.

Q5. Two trains 140 m and 160 m long run at the speed of 60 km/hr and 40 km/hr respectively in opposite directions on parallel tracks. The time (in seconds) which they take to cross each other, is:
(a) 10.8 sec
(b) 9.5 sec
(c) 7.4 sec
(d) 8.9 sec

Q5. Ans. (a)
Sol.
Relative speed = (60 + 40) km/hr = 100×5/18 = 250/9 m/ sec.
Distance covered in crossing each other = (140 + 160) m = 300 m.
Required time = 300×9/250 = 54/5 = 10.8 sec.
