S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Basic pay = 11925/((100 + 165) )×100
=11925/265×100
= Rs. 4500
S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the salary = 100 units
savings = 20%
savings = 100 ×20/100 = 20 units
Expenditure = (100 – 20) = 80 units
80 units = Rs. 6000
1 unit = Rs. 75
Savings = 75 × 20
= Rs. 1500
S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Population of town = 3,11,250
Number of women in town = 311250/((43 + 40) )× 43 = 161250
Number of literate women = 161250 ×24/100 = 38700
Number of men in the town = 311250/((43 + 40))× 40 = 150000
Number of literate men in town = 150000 ×((100 – 10))/100
= 150000 ×90/100 = 135000
Total literate persons in town = (38700 + 135000)
= 173700
