**Answers and Solution:**

2.(1)

3.(3) Part of the tank filled in first 2 hours.

1/4 + 1/6 = (3+2)/12 = 5/12 parts

so Part of the tank filled in first 4 hours

= (2*5)/12 parts = 5/6 parts

Remaining part = 1 – 5/6 = 1/6

Now it is the turn of pipe A

Time taken to fill 1/4 part = 1 hour

So Time taken to fill 1/6 part

= 1/6*4 = 2/3 hour

So Total time = 4 + 2/3 = 4 2/3 hours

4.(2)

If the length and breadth of a rectangular are changed by x% and y% respectively .

the effective change in area = (x + y + xy/100)%

Here, x = -25. y = -25

so Percentage decrease (-25-25+25*25/100)%

= (-50+6.25)% = -43.75%

5. (1)

6. (4)

7. (2)

a/b = b/c => b^2 = ac

so a^4 : b^4 = a^4 : a^2c^2 = a^2:c^2

9. (4)

5x*6x = 120*HCF

30x^2 = 120*x

x = 4

Ratio of the values of coins = 3/1 : 5/2 : 7/4= 12:10:7

so value of the one rupee coins

= Rs. (12/29*145)= Rs.60 Number of One rupee coins
