Percentage of money spent on various items and savings by a family during 2009

Q6. If the total income of the family for the year 2009 was Rs. 1,50,000 then the difference between the expenditures on housing and transport was:
(a) Rs. 15,000
(b) Rs. 10,000
(c) Rs. 12,000
(d) Rs. 7,500
Ans.(a)
Sol. Expenditure on housing = 15%
Expenditure on transport = 5%
Difference = 150000 × (15% – 5%)
=150000×10/100= Rs. 15000
Q7. Maximum expenditure of the family other than on food, was on:
(a) Housing
(b) Clothing
(c) Others
(d) Education of children

Sol. Maximum expenditure of the family other than on food was on others (20%).

Q8. The savings of the family for the year were equal to the expenditure on:
(a) Food
(b) Housing
(c) Education of children
(d) Clothing
Ans.(b)
Sol. The savings of the family for the year were equal to the expenditure on housing.

Q9. The percentage of the income which was spent on clothing, education of children and transport together is:
(a) 17
(b) 20
(c) 22
(d) 27
Ans.(d)
Sol. Total expenditure = 10% + 12% + 5% = 27%
Q10. If the total income of the family was Rs. 1,50,000 then the money spent on food was:
(a) Rs. 20,000
(b) Rs. 23,000
(c) Rs. 30,000
(d) Rs. 34,500
Ans.(d)
Sol. Expenditure on food =150000×23/100 = Rs. 34500

Q11. If sec θ + tan θ =2+√5, then the value of sin θ + cos θ is:
(a) 3/√5
(b) √5
(c) 7/√5
(d) 1/√5

(a) 2
(b) 0
(c) 4
(d) 1

Q13. A room is 5 metres long and 3 metres broad; the doors and windows occupy 10 sq. metres, and the cost of colouring the remaining part of the surface of the walls with paper 25 cm wide, at Rs. 5 per piece of 15 m is Rs. 40. Find the height of the room.
(a) 4 metres
(b) 3.5 metres
(c) 3 metres
(d) 2.5 metres
Ans.(d)
Sol. Length of paper =40/5×15=120 m
Area of paper =120×25/100 = 30 sq. m.
Area of walls = 30 + 10 = 40 sq. m
Now area of walls = 2(5 + 3) × height
= (16 × height)sq. m.
Height =40/16 = 2.5 metres

Q14. The length of a room floor exceeds its breadth by 20 m. The area of the floor remains unaltered when the length is decreased by 10 m but the breadth is increased by 5 m. The area of the floor (in square metres) is:
(a) 280
(b) 325
(c) 300
(d) 420
Ans.(c)
Sol. Let the breadth of floor be x metre
∴ Length = {x + 20} metre
∴ Area of the floor = (x + 20) x sq. metre
In case II,
(x + 10) {x + 5} = x {x + 20}
⇒ 20x = 15x + 50
⇒5x = 50
⇒ x = 10 metre
⇒ Length of x + 20 = 10 + 20 = 30 metre
Area of the floor=30 × 10=300 square
metres

Q15. The radii of two circle are 5 cm and 3 cm, the distance between their centres is 24 cm. Then the length of the transverse common tangent is
(a) 16 cm
(b) 15√2 cm
(c) 16 √2 cm
(d) 15 cm
