SOLUTIONS

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. A + B + C = (3 × 84) kg = 252 kg
A + B + C + D = (4 × 80) kg = 320 kg
D = (320 – 252) kg = 68 kg
E = (68 + 3) kg = 71 kg
B + C + D + E = (4 × 79) kg = 316 kg
B + C + D = (316 – 71) kg = 245 kg
A = (320 – 245) kg = 75 kg

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Suppose the average expenditure was Rs. x. Then total expenditure = 35x.
When 7 more boys join the mess, total expenditure = 35x + 42
Now, the average expenditure
=(35x+42)/(35+7)=(35x+42)/42
Now, we have (35x + 42)/42 = x – 1
Or, 35x + 42 = 42x – 42
Or, 7x = 84
⇒ x = 12
Thus the original expenditure of the mess
= 35 × 12 = Rs. 420

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let the total number of workers be x. Then,
(7 × 10000) + (x – 7) 7800 = 8500x
⇒ 70000 + 7800x – 54600 = 8500x
⇒ 700x = 15400
⇒ x = 22
∴ Total number of workers in the workshop = 22

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Sum of the ages of 3 boys = (16 × 3) = 48 years
Ratio of their ages = 4 : 5 : 7
Age of the youngest = (48×4/16) = 12 years

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Quantity of evaporated water
= Original quantity of solution ((% Diffrence of sugar)/(Final % of sugar))
= 16 ((40-30)/40)=4l

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the 3rd number be 100.
Then, 1st number = 70, 2nd number = 63
2nd number is less than 1st by = (7/70×100)%
= 10%

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Cost price for 5 Lemon is Rs. 4
So SP for 5 Lemon = 4 × ((100 + 75))/100 = Rs. 7
So, SP for 1 Lemon = 7/5 = Rs. 1.4

S12. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let the work be finished in x days.
x/10+(x-4)/12+3/15=1
or, x = 62/11 days

S13. Ans.(c)
Sol. 4/5 work is done by A in 20 days.
Whole work is done by A in
= (20×5/4) = 25 days
1/5th work is done by (A + B) in 3 days.
Whole work is done by (A + B) in (3 × 5) days = 15 days.
B’s 1 day’s work = (1/15-1/25)=2/75
1 B alone can finish the work in = 75/2=37 1/2 days

S14. Ans.(b)
Sol. Part filled in 1 min = 3/7
Remaining part = (1-3/7)=4/7
Let the required time be x min.
More part, more time taken.
⇒xy/(y-x)
⇒3/7 x=(4/7×1)
⇒ x = 4/3 min

S15. Ans.(b)
Sol. Part filled by both pipes in 1 min
=(1/20+1/30)=5/60=1/12
Time taken to fill the tank = 12 minutes. Join India's largest learning destination
