__SOLUTIONS__1.A) 60

Explanation:

Take vowels in a box together as one – IIU, M, N, M, M

So there are 5 that to be placed for this 5!, now 3 Ms, so 5!/3!, so

arrangement of vowels inside box gives 3!/2!

So total = 5!/3! * 3!/2!

2.Answer & Explanation

B) 140

Explanation:

Total ways =

8C4*5C3

5.Answer & Explanation

Answer – c) 16000

Explanation :

Let total books are A, then (95/100)*(90/100)*(85/100)*A = 11628

6.Answer & Explanation

Answer – b) 30ltr

Explanation :

Let initial quantity is x litre

final, salt = (x/10)/ (x – 15) = 20/100

7.Option D

Solution:

Upstream speed in both cases is 20 and 20 resp. Ratio is 20 : 40 = 1 : 2. So let

times in both cases be x and 2x

Downstream speed in both cases is 32 and 48 resp. Ratio is 32 : 48 = 2 : 3. So

let times in both cases be 2y and 3y

So x + 2y = 3

and 2x + 3y = 5 1/2

Solve both, x = 2, y = 0.5

So upstream speed is = 20/x = 10 km/hr

And downstream = 32/2y = 32 km/hr

So speed of boat is 1/2 * (32-10)

8.Viewnswer

Option C

Solution:

USE FORMULA:

Distance = total time * [B2

– R2]/2*B

So distance = 7 * [142

– 102]/2*14

Distance = 24 km

9.

Option C

Solution:

½…………………..3/8

2/5

1/40…………………1/10

1 : 4

Option C

Solution:

Average increases by 1 when 1 leaves, so for 19 students::

. 59 – 19 = 40
