(b) 78 1/2%
(c) 100%
(d) More than 100% (i.e. some liquid will be left in the bowl).

(a) 60 cm^2.
(b) 48 cm^2.
(c) 72 cm^2.

Q10. A man standing at a point P is watching the top of a tower, which makes an angle of elevation of 30° with the man’s eye. The man walks some distance towards the tower to watch its top and the angle of elevation becomes 60°. What is the distance between the base of the tower and the point P?  
(a) 4√3 units
(b) 8 units
(c) Data inadequate
(d) None of these

Q11. A man buys a watch for Rs. 1950 in cash and sells it for Rs. 2200 at a credit of 1 year. If the rate of interest is 10% per annum, the man:  
(a) Gains Rs. 55
(b) Gains Rs. 50
(c) Loses Rs. 30
(d) Gains Rs. 30
 S11. Ans.(b)
Sol. S.P. = value . of Rs. 2200 due 1 year hence = Rs. [(2200 × 100)/(100 + (10 × 1) )] = Rs. 2000.
∴ Gain = Rs (2000 – 1950) = Rs. 50.
Q12. A and B take part in a 100 m race. A runs at 5 km per hour. A gives B a start of 8 m and still beats him by 8 seconds. The sped of B is:  
(a) 5.15 kmph
(b) 4.14 kmph
(c) 4.25 kmph
(d) 4.4 kmph
S12. Ans.(b)
Sol. A’s speed =(5×5/18) m/sec =25/18 m/sec.
Time taken by to cover 100 m =(100×18/25) sec = 72 sec.
∴ Time taken by B to cover 92 m = (72 + 8) sec = 80 sec.
∴ B’s speed =(92/80×18/5) kmph = 4.14 kmph.
Q13. In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3 : 4. A has a start of 140 m. Then A wins by: 
(a) 60 m
(b) 40 m
(c) 20 m
(d) 10 m
S13. Ans.(c)
Sol. To reach the winning post A will have to cover a distance of (500 – 140) m i.e. 360 m. While A covers 3 m, B covers 4 m.
While A covers 360 m. B covers (4/3×360) m = 480 m.
Thus, when A reaches the winning post, B covers 480 m and therefore remains 20 m behind.
∴ A wins by 20 m.
Q14. The areas of the three adjacent faces of a rectangular box which meet in a point are known. The product of these areas is equal to:  
(a) The volume of the box
(b) Twice the volume of the box
(c) The square of the volume of the box
(d) The cube root of the volume of the box
S14. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let length = l, breadth = b and height = h. Then,
Product of areas of 3 adjacent faces = (lb × bh × lh) =(lbh)^2=(Volume)^2  

Q15. The length of an edge of a hollow cube open at one face is √3 metres. What is the length of the largest pole that it can accommodate?  
(a) √3 metres
(b) 3 metres
(c) 3√3 metres
(d) 3/√3  metres
S15. Ans.(b)
Sol. Required length = Diagonal = √3 a=(√3×√3)m=3m.
