Solution:

Directions (1 - 5):

Pizzas sold in C = 108

Veg pizzas in C = 108/12 * 7 = 63

Non- veg pizzas in C = 108/ 12 * 5 = 45

Pizzas sold in A and B = 376 – 108 = 268

Veg : Non-veg pizzas sold by A = 9: 7 (9y, 7y)

Veg : Non-veg pizzas sold by B = 3: 4 (3x, 4x)

Veg pizzas sold by A = 120% Veg pizzas sold by B

=> 6: 5 (6z, 5z)

=> 9y/6z * 5z = 7.5 y

=> 7.5y/3 * 4 = 10y

Veg A: non-veg A: Veg B: non-veg B

9: 7: 7.5: 10

=> 18: 14: 15: 20

=> 268 = 67y

=> y = 4

Veg pizzas in A = 18 * 4 = 72

Non- veg pizzas in A = 14 * 4 = 56

Veg pizzas in B = 15 * 4 =60

Non- veg pizzas in B = 20 * 4 = 80

1) Answer: A

Required ratio = 72: 63 = 8: 7

2) Answer: E

Required sum = 56 + 80 + 45 = 181

3) Answer: C

Required % = 60/80 *100 = 75%

4) Answer: D

Required average = (72 + 60) /2 = 66

5) Answer: B

Required ratio = (60 + 80): 63 = 20: 9

6.) Answer: C

Explanation:

S.I = P*n*r /100

(14/25) * P = P * 7 * r/100

Rate of interest(r) = (14/25) * (100/7)

r = 8 %

7) Answer: B

Explanation:

The ratio of age of Karthika, 7 years ago and the present

age of Sanu

= 3 : 4 (3x, 4x)

Present age of Karthika and Sanu = 3x + 7, 4x

According to the question,

(3x + 7 + 8)/(4x + 8) = (15/14)

42x + 210 = 60x + 120

90 = 18x

x = 90/18 = 5

Present age of Sanu = 4x = 20 years

8. Answer: C

Explanation:

The perimeter of the square = 72 m

4a = 72

Side (a) = 18 m

Radius of the circle = (7/9)*18 = 14 m

Area of the circle = Ï€r2 = (22/7)*14*14 = 616 Sq m

9) Answer: D

Explanation:

Let the numbers be x, y and z,

The average of first two numbers = 6

(x + y) = 12

The average of last two numbers = 7

(y + z) = 14

The average of first and last numbers = 8

(x + z) = 16

2*(x + y + z) = 12 + 14 + 16 = 42

x + y + z = 21

Required average = (21/3) = 7

10) Answer: A

Explanation:

The same train crosses a platform and pole. So, Speed is equal.

Speed = Distance/Time

(T.L + 200)/15 = T.L/5

T.L + 200 = 3*T.L

2*T.L = 200

T.L = 100 m

The time taken by the train to cross a tunnel

Time = Distance/Speed

Required time = (100 + 300)/(100/5) = (400*5)/100 = 20 sec
