with Explanation:-
1.    (B)

2.    (C)
are given with length and area, so we can find the breadth.
as Length x Breadth = Area
=> 20 x Breadth = 680
=> Breadth = 34 feet
Area to be fenced = 2B + L = 2 x 34 + 20
= 88 feet

3.    (B)
I = Rs. ((1200 ×10 ×1)/100) = Rs. 120
(C) I. = Rs.   = Rs. 123.
Difference = Rs. 3

4.    (C)
the diagonals of the squares be 2x and 5x.
Then ratio of their areas will be
Area of square=(1/2) x Diagonal2
(1/2 ) x 2x^2 : (1/2) x 5x^2
 4x^2 :25x^2 = 4:25

5.    (D)
      Let B contribution is x.
(3500 x 12) /7x=2/3 =>14x=126000=>x=Rs9000

6.    (C)

7.    (B)

8.    (B)
      Flower-nectar contains 50% of non-water
      In honey this non-water part constitutes
85% (100-15).
      Therefore 0.5 X Amount of flower-nectar =
0.85 X Amount of honey = 0.85 X 1 kg
Therefore amount of flower-nectar needed = .85/.5*1= 1.7 kgs

      Let the amount taxable purchases be Rs. x.
      Then, 6% of x=30/100
      x=30/100*100/6 = 5
Cost of tax free items = Rs. [25 – (5 + 0.30)] = Rs. 19.70
