A) 150%
B) 250%
C) 350%
D) 450%
1.(B)Let length = x meters, then breadth = 0.6x
  perimeter = 800 meters
=> 2[ x + 0.6x] = 800
=> x = 250 m
Length = 250m and breadth = 0.6 * 250 = 150m
Area = 250 * 150 = 37500

  1. Guys, Don't you think in the. Q.No 3, Option (D) should be 440 in lieu of 340 ?? Or has it been mis-typed ?

  2. length of sqr=HCF(1517 &902 )=41
    then area of each tile=41*41=1681
    no of tiles=1517*902/1681=814

  3. no we don't get max size(max means max no of tiles not size)
    for max no of tiles= LCM of nos
    for min no of tiles= HCF of nos

  4. take hcf
    because value of hcf is smaller than Lcm
    and when we will devide a value by it will provide maximum no. of tiles

  5. Sol of 5 , area of sheet =20*30=600; area used for typing={20-4}*{30-6}=16*24=384;%=384/600*100=64%

  6. speed=distance/time here distance=diagonal
    v=52 m/min= 52/60 m/sec time t=15 sec
    diagonal =speed*time=52/60*15=13 m
    since B took the same time to cross the same field along its sides walking at the rate of 68m/min.

    it means B travels along length L and breadth B
    distance=L+B V=68 m/sec=68/60 m/sec t=15 sec
    distance L+B=speed*time=68/60*15=17 m
    Area of rectangle A= L*B
    according to pythagorus therom
    we can write L^2+B^2=(L+B)^2-2*L*B
    now D^2=(L+B)^2-2*Area
    Area=120/2=60 sqr m

  7. Answers of the rest are as follows. 4.[A], 5.[B], 6. [A], 7. -, 8. [C], 12. [D], 13. [A], 14. [D]. I must say, after solving all but Q. No 7, what a fantastic set of Questions it was for Quantitative Aptitude !! Hats off to http://www.sscadda.com for putting quality questions before us in each section and that always.
