Answers and Solution:
1.(4)
Part of the cistern filled in 1 hour
= 1/3 +1/4 – 1/2
= 1/12
Hence ,the cistern will be filled in 12 hours.

2.(3)
Work done by(A+B) in 1 day = 1/15+1/10 = = 1/6
so (A+B)’s 2 days work 2/6 = 1/3
Remaining work = 1 – 1/3 = 2/3
This part is done by A alone
1 work is done by A in 15 days
so 2/3 work is done in 15*2/3= 10 days.
Required number of days= 12 days

3.(2)
Let the cost price be Rs.x
so 125% of x – 120% of x = 35
x = 700

4.(3)
Let C.P of article be Rs.x.
so 105% of x – 80% of x = 100
= 25% of x = 100
so x = 400

5.(3)
6.(3)
Net Effect = (20+20+(20*20)/100)%
= 44%
7.(1)
Let the number be 100.
After 20% increase,number = 120
number = 120*120/100 = 144
so percent decrease = 44/144*100 = 30(5/9)%

8.(2)
Let the boy had Rs.x
Money given to first companion = 80% of x = 4x/5
Remaining money = x – 4x/5 = x/5
Money given to another companion = 6/100*x/5 = 3x/250
Remaining money = x/5 – 3x/250
so 47x/250 = 47/100
x = Rs. 2.50

9.(2)
10.(1)
persons 7 : 5
                         :: 7 : x  
Days    4 : 8
so 7 * 4 * X = 5*8*7
so x = 10 days
