__SOLUTIONS__1.Answer – d) 46kg

Explanation :

Suppose initially price per kg of rice is 100 then their expenditure is

5000.

Now their expenditure is only increased by only 20% i.e – 6000.

Increased price of rice = 130.

So new consumption = 6000/130 = 46

2.Answer – b) 35%

Explanation :

weight of A is x and weight of B is 2x given that 60 kg weight is the

30% percent increase of the original weight,

so (130/100)*W = 60,

W = 600/13 kg

(W = original weight)

X + 2x = 600/13,

x = 200/13

So weight of A = 200/13

and of B = 400/13 (120/100)*(200/13) + [(100 + a)/100]*(400/13) = 60

Solve for a.

We will get a = 35%

3.Answer – a) 10%

Explanation :

Let initially income is 100.

So, expenditure = 60 and

saving = 40 now income is increased by 20%

i.e. 120.

So, expenditure = (70/100)*120 = 84 and

saving = 36

so % percent decrease in saving = (4/40)*100 = 10%

4.Answer – b) decrease 4.32%

Explanation :

Let initially seats are 100 and price of each seat is 100,

so total initial revenue = 10000 now,

seats are 92 and price of each seat = 104,

so total revenue = 92*104 = 9568

so percent change in revenue = (432/10000)*100

=4.32 decrease

5.Answer – d) 400

Explanation :

Let the number is a

a – (75/100)*a*(120/100)

= 40 we will get a = 400

6.Answer – c) 100000

Explanation :

12% percent didn’t cast their vote.

45% of total votes get by the winning candidates,

so remaining 43% will be scored by his rival.

So, (45/100 -43/100)*P = 2000 P = 100000

7.Answer – c) 48

Explanation :

let original price is x rupees per kg 1200/(4x/5) – 1200/x = 5

We will get x = 60,

so reduced price = (4*60)/5 = 48

8.Answer & Explanation

A. 854

Explanation:

No of boys in a school last year = 610

No of boys in a school for this year

610*80/100=122

610-122=488

No of girls =175/100 * 488=854

9.Answer & Explanation

D. 20

Explanation:

Assume Total amount = Rs.100

Auto fare= 15% of Total amount

i.e Rs.15

Now the amount is Rs.85

Price of 70 oranges = Rs.85

Price of 35 oranges = (85/70)*35 = Rs. 42.50

Remaining amount to buy apples is =Rs.42.50

Price of 40 apples = Rs.85

Price of X apples = Rs.42.50

X=(85/42.5)*40 = 20 Apples

10.Answer & Explanation

C. Rs.3136

Explanation:

Total amount = x Savings(%)

[100 – (23 + 33 + 19 + 16 )]% = 9 %

9% of x = 504

=> x = 504 * 100/9 = 5600

Amount spend on food and insurance policy together

= 56% of 5600 = Rs.3136

11.Answer & Explanation

B. 40%

Explanation:

Assume Deepak’s salary =10000 original hike(50%) amount = 5000 ;

Revised salary =15000

Wrongly typed(80%)

hike amount = 8000

Diff = 3000;

For three months = 9000

Fourth Month Salary = 15000-9000=6000

15000*x/100 = 6000

=> x=40%

12.Answer & Explanation

B. 6200

Explanation:

Let total number of voters= x

People who voted for the winner are =0.47x

People who voted for the loser are = 0.47x-308

People who cast blanks are = 60 and

people who did not vote are = 0.1x

solve the following equation

0.47x+0.47x-308+60+0.1x=x

=> x=6200

13.Answer & Explanation

Answer – 1.37%

Explanation :

Students passed in Prelims = 70%

Students passed in Mains = 55%

Students passed in both = 62%

No of students passed in at least one subject = (70+55)-62 = 63%.

students failed in both subjects = 100-63 = 37%.

14.Answer & Explanation

Answer – 2.Rs.15,000

Explanation :

7% increases 30000 = Rs 2100 =30000+2100 = Rs 32,

100 But the actual increase in salary =31800

Difference =32100 – 31800 = 300 2% = 300

Gugan’s salary =300/2 x 100 = 15000

Harish’s salary =30000 – 15000 = Rs 15000

15.Answer & Explanation

Answer – 2.16.64%

Explanation :

Total increase = 6+2 = 8%

% increase = 8+8+(8*8/100)

= 16+0.64 = 16.64%
