**SOLUTIONS:**

__1.Answer- 2) 55000__

Explanation:

Total number of literate people in state B = 12100/11 × 29 = 31900

Therefore, the total population of the state = 31900/58 × 100 = 55000

2.Answer- 5) 48200

Explanation- Total number of illiterate people in state A = 34% of 1.5 lakhs = 51000

Number of illiterate males in state A = 51000/17 × 8 = 24000

Total number of illiterate people in state C = 25% of 2.2 lakhs = 55000

Total number of illiterate males = 55000/25 × 11 = 24200

Required number = 24000 + 24200 = 48200

3.Answer-4) 3lakhs

Explanation:

Total number of illiterate people in state D = 36000/12 × 23 =69000

Total population of state D = 69000/23 × 100 = 300000 = 3 lakhs

4.Answer- 2) 160/3%

Explanation– Total number of literate population of state E = 29400/7 × 17 = 71,400

Total population of state E = 71400/51 × 100 = 140000

Required percentage = (300000 – 140000)/300000 × 100 = 160/3%

5.Answer- 3) 550/9%

Explanation– Let the population of state D be 100, then the population of state A will be 300. (actual population is of course way higher)

Number of literate people in state D = 77% of 100 = 77

Number of literate people in state A = 66% of 300 = 198

Required percentage = (198 – 77)/198 × 100 = 12100/198 = 550/9%

6.Explanation:

The series is 11 × 1 – 3 = 8, 8 × 2 – 4 = 12, 12 × 3 – 5 = 31, 31 × 4 – 6 = 118

Therefore, the correct series is 11, 8, 12, 31, 118.

7.Explanation:

The series is 355 – 36 = 319, 319 – 30 = 289, 289 – 24 = 265, 265 – 18 = 247

Therefore, the correct series is 355, 319, 289, 265, 247.

8.Answer – 4) Relationship between x and y cannot be determined.

Explanation:

2x2 – 15x + 27 = 0

2x2 – 9x – 6x + 27 = 0

(x – 3)(2x – 9) = 0

x = 3, 9/2

5y2 – 18y – 35 = 0

5y2 – 25y + 7y – 35 = 0

(5y + 7)(y – 5) = 0

y = 5, -7/5

Therefore, option 4) is correct

9.Answer- 3) y > x

Explanation:

We have, x2 + 16x + 55 = 0

X2 + 11x + 5x + 55 = 0

(x + 5)(x + 11) = 0

x = -11, -5

2y2 + 9y + 10 = 0

2y2 + 5y + 4y + 10 = 0

(2y + 5)(y + 2) = 0

Y = -2, -5/2

Therefore, y > x

10.Explanation:

Let the value in question mark be x, then,

39 × 22 – 12 × 6 = 131 × x ( by converting every value to their nearest whole number)

858 – 72 = 131x

x = 6
