:::::::::::::::::::: SOLUTIONS:::::::::::::::::::::::

Solution –
A is percentage of B= (20×16×80)/(15×64) = 26.67

Solution :
Total no of offline applicants from HP, Kingston and Fox = (16 /100* 62/100* +15/100*70/100+ 20/100*48/100) * 2400000 =720480
Total number of present applicants at the time of interview in google and Jaguar= (24/100* 82/100 + 25/100*75/100)*2400000= 922320
Difference between these two =201840

Solution :
ratio of total number of present applicants from Kingston to total number of offline applicants from Jaguar –
(15×64)/(25×56)=24/3

4.

5.Explanation
Let digit is 100a+10b+c but due to mistake digit changed into 100c+10b+a and difference between these two digits is 99a-99c which is
99a-99c= 29.7×10
a-c=3

Explanation
Let the faster tap fill the tank in x hours
Slower tap fills in (x+5) hours
Now, both taps fill the tank in x(x+5)/(x+x+5)=6 hrs
X2-7x-30=0
X=10 or -3
So faster tap fills the tank in 10 hours

7. Explanation:
40% of new mixture = 20L
100% of new mixture=20/40×100
= 50 L
28 + x + 8 + x = 50
2x = 50 – 36
x = 7L

Explanation
54*(x−1) −46*x = 74
8x = 128
x = 16
Original total expenditure:
46*x = 46*16 = Rs.736

Explanation
CSA of 10 cyc= 10*2πrh
= 2 * 22/7 * 70/100 * 2
= 44*70*2/(700)
= 12*88*70/700
= 105.6
Cost = 7.75*105.6
= 818.4

Explanation
Total number of drink bottles = 6 + 3 + 4 = 13.
Let S be the sample space.
Then, n(S) = number of ways of taking 3 drink bottles out of 13.
Therefore, n(S) = 13C3=286
Let E be the event of taking 3 bottles of the same variety.
Then, E = event of taking (3 bottles out of 6) or (3 bottles out of 3) or (3 bottles out of 4)
n(E) = 6c3+ 3C3 +4C3=25
The probability of taking 3 bottles of the same variety = n(E)/n(S) = 25/286
Then, the probability of taking 3 bottles are not of the same variety = 1 – 25/286 = 261/286
