(a) 120°
(b) 60°
(c) 90°
(d) 180°

=90°- ∠BAC
∴ ∠BAC+ ∠OBC=90°

Q13 .The present average age of a couple and their daughter is 35 years. Fifteen year from now the age of the mother will be equal to the sum of present ages of the father and the daughter. Find the present age of the mother.

(a) 43 years
(b) 40 year
(c) 48 years
(d) 45 years
S13. Ans.(d)
Sol. Let the present age of the father, mother and daughter be f, m and d respectively.
(f+m+d)/3=35
f + m + d = 105   …………………….. (1)
m + 15 = f + d
Substituting f + d as m + 15 in (1),
we get 2m + 15 = 105
2m = 90 =m = 45 years

Q14. The cost of three pens, four erasers and ten sharpeners is Rs. 75. The cost of six pens. Seven erasers and twenty sharpeners is Rs. 146. Find the cost of each eraser.

(c) Rs. 5
(d) Rs. 6
S14. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let the cost of each pen, eraser and sharpener b p, e and s respectively.
3p + 4e + 10s = 75
6p + 7e + 20x = 146
Multiplying the first of the above equations by 2 and subtracting the second equation from it,
we get e = 4

Q15. Shyam and Ram have some chocolates with each of them, if shyam gives 5 chocolates of Ram, both will have equal number of chocolates. If Ram gives the same number of chocolates to shyam, shyam would have twice as many    chocolates as Ram. Find the number of chocolates Ram has.
(a) 25
(b) 30
(c) 35
(d) 20
S15. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the number of chocolates with shyam and Ram be S and R respectively. If Shyam gives 5 chocolates to Ram, he would have S – 5 chocolates and Ram would have R + 5 chocolates.
So S – 5 = R + 5
S – R = 10   …………………… (1)
If Ram gives 5 chocolates to Shyam, he would have R – 5 chocolates and Shyam would have S + 5 chocolates.
S + 5 = 2 (R – 5)
2R – S = 15
Adding (1) and (2) we get R = 25. Join India largest learning distination
