Answers will be provided soon.

Since B and D are twins. So B = D.
Now A = B + 3 and A = C – 3.
Thus, B + 3 = C – 3 ‹=› D + 3 = C – 3 ‹=› C – D = 6.

Let x and y be the number of deer and peacocks in the zoo respectively.
Then, x + y = 80 ——————> (i)
4x + 2y = 200 or 2x + y = 100 ———> (ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get : x = 20, y = 60.

When Rahul was born,
his brother’s age = 6 years,
his father’s age = ( 6 + 32 ) = 38 years.
his mother’s age = ( 38 – 3) years = 35 years.
his sister’s age = ( 35 – 25 ) years = 10 years.

Let number of girls = x and number of boys = 3x.
Then, 3x + x = 4x = total number of students.
Thus, to find exact value of x,
The total number of students must be divisible by 4.

L.C.M. of 6,5,7,10 and 12 is 420.
So, the bells will toll together after every 420 seconds. i.e. 7 minutes.
Now 7 × 8 = 56 and 7 × 9 = 63.
Thus, in 1 hour( or 60 minutes), the bells will toll together 8 times, excluding the one at the start.

Let number of notes of each denomination be x.
Then x + 5x + 10 = 480.
16 x = 480 = x = 30.
Hence, total number of notes = 3x = 90.

9. (D)
10. (C)
