__SOLUTIONS:__

1Answer: 1) 10 minutes

Explanation:

Given, the ratio of speed of A and B= 3:5, Ratio of time taken will be 5:3, Difference of time is (5-3)= 2, (here 2 = 12minutes)

Therefore, 1 =6 minutes

Therefore, time taken by A to complete the distance = 5*6 = 30 minutes

Hence, A will cover the same distance with thrice its speed in 10 minutes

2.Answer: 3. 4/85

Explanation:

Cards which are divisible by 5 from number 1 to 35 are 7

Cards which are divisible by 8 from number 1 to 35 are 4

If first card is divisible by 8 and second by 5,

Probability of first card being divisible by 8 = 4/35

Probability of second card being divisible = 7/34 (without replacement)

Probability =(4/35)*(7/34) = 2/85

If first card is divisible by 5 and second card is divisible by 8,

Probability of first card being divisible by 5 = 7/35

Probability of second card being divisible by 8 = 4/34(without replacement)

Probability =(7/35)*(4/34) = 2/85

Total Probability = 2/85+2/85 = 4/85

3.Answer: 4. 240

Explanation:

Let the number of boys failed = x, no. of girls failed = x

Number of boys passed = (240-x) and number of girls passed = (220-x)

According to question,

(240-x) = 1.2(220-x)

240-x = 264 – 1.2x

X = 120

Total number of boys and girls failed = x+x = 120+120 = 240

4.Answer: Rs. 3900

Explanation:

Let the cost price of the commodity = 100x

Selling price = 130% of 100x = 130x

130x = 4303

X =33.1

100x = 3310

CP = 85% of MP

3310 = 85/100 * MP

MP = 331000/85 =Rs. 3900

5.Answer: 1) 16.66%

Explanation:

Age of x = 120% of age of y

48 = 120% of y

y = (48*100)/120 = 40

Required %age = (48-40)/48 = 8/48 = 1/6 (16.66%)

6.Answer: 2) 90/19 hours

Explanation:

Let the capacity of tank is LCM of 6, 15 and 45 = 90k

Tank filled per hour by A = 90/6 = 15k

Tank filled per hour by B = 90/15 =6k

Tank emptied per hour by C = 90/45 = 2k

Tank filled per hour by all three taps = 15k+6k-2k = 19k

Time taken by all to fill the tank = 90/19 hours

7.Answer: 3) 210m

Explanation:

Let the speed of train is “s”

Distance = Speed*time

280 = s*20

s = 14m/s

Let the length of platform = x

(x+280) = 14*35

X = 210

8.Answer: 5) 136 litres

Explanation:

Let the total quantity = 17x

Quantity of milk = 14x and quantity of water = 3x

when 51 liters is taken out, 51*(14/17) = 42 will be milk and 51*(3/17) = 9 will be water

According to question,

(14x-42) / (3x-9+15) = 7/3

(14x-42) / (3x+6) = 7/3

(14x-42) / (x+2) = 7/1

14x-42 = 7x+14

x =8

Mixture quantity in original = 17*8 = 136 liters

9.Answer: 1. 42

Explanation:

Let the speed of current is “c”

Downstream speed = 12+c and upstream speed =12-c

According to question,

12+c – (12-c) = 4

C =2

Also,

X/ (12+c) = (X-12)/(12-c)

X/14 = (X-12)/10

10X = 14X-14*12

X= 42 km

10.Answer: 4. 100/9 days

Explanation:

Given, the ratio of work done by A to B is 2:3.

Let the work done by A per day = 4p

Work done by B per day = 125% of 4p = 5p

Work done by B in x days = 5p*x

Work done by A in x+7 days = 4p*(x+7)

According to question,

4p*(x+7)/5p*x = 3/2

x = 8

work done by B = 5p*8 = 40p , work done by A = (3/2)*40 = 60p

Total work = 40p+60p = 100p

Combined efficiency of A and B = 4p+5p = 9p

Time taken = 100p/9p = 100/9 days
