(10)A bag A contains some quantity of sugar bag B contains 80 kg of salt. 20% of sugar from A is taken out and mixed with same quantity of salt from bag B. If the remaining quantity of salt in bag B is 70% of its actual

quantity, then what is the initial quantity of sugar in bag A?

a)120 kg

b)150 kg

c) 100 kg

d)90 kg

e)None of these

__SOLUTION:__1.Let length of platform = t meters

Length of train A and train B is 8x and 7x

respectively.

Speed of train A and train B is 3y and 2y

respectively.

∴(t+ 8𝑥/18)/(𝑡 + 7𝑥/24)

= 3y/2y

⇒ 𝑥 = 𝑡

Required percentage 𝑥/8𝑥× 100 = 12.5%

2. Let speed of boat in still water = x km/hr

And speed of current = y km/hr

ATQ,

x – y + x + y = 72

2x = 72

x = 36 km/hr

𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑥– 𝑦 =

105/3.5

= 30 𝑘𝑚⁄ℎ𝑟

y = 6 km/hr

Downstream = x + y = 42 km/hr

𝑋 + 𝑦 =126/t

𝑡 =126/42= 3 ℎ𝑜𝑢𝑟𝑠.

Let the three parts of the number are 'x', 'y' and 'z'

respectively.

Given that,

60% of x = (60% of y) - 9

3x/5 = (3y/5) - 9 ........... (1)

Also given that,

40% of y = (40% of z) + 16

2y/5 = (2z/5) + 16

2y = 2z + 80

y = z + 40 ............... (2)

From (1) and (2):

3x/5 = [3(z + 40)/5] - 9

3x = 3z + 120 - 45

3x = 3z + 75

x - z = 25

Difference between the first part and third part = 25

**( 6 - 10 )**

Number of female employee from A in IT department = x

Number of female employees from B in HR department = x * 75/100 = 3x/4

Number of male employees from A in HR department = 3x/4 – 30

Number of male employees from B in IT department = 5/4 * 3x/4 = 15x/16

Total number of employees = 1200,

Total number of employee in Company A = 500

Total number of employee in Company B

= Total number of employees – Total number of employee in Company A

= 1200 – 500 = 700

Number of female employees from company B from IT department = 115

The number of male employees from B in HR department = 207

15x/16 + 115 + 207 + 3x/4 = 700

27x/16 = 700 – 322

27x/16 = 378

x = 224

Number of female employee from A in IT department = x = 224

Number of female employees from B in HR department =3x/4 = 168

Number of male employees from A in HR department = 3x/4 – 30 = 138

Number of male employees from B in IT department = 15x/16 = 210

Ratio of the number of male employees from company A in IT department (P) to the number of female employees from A in HR department (Q)

= P/Q = 1: 2 –> (1)

Total number of employee in Company A = 500

P + 224 + 138 + Q = 500

P + Q = 500 – 362

P + Q = 138 –> (2)

On solving (1) and (2) => P = 46, Q = 96

Ratio of male person from HR department in company A to the male person from IT department in company

B=> 138 / 210 = 23: 35

7.Answer: A

Average = (46 + 210 + 138 + 207) / 4 = 601/2 = 300.50

8) Answer: B

50% of Female people only from HR department on both the companies are went for team lunch = 50% of (92 + 168)

= 50% of 260

= 130

= 130

Difference = 256 – 130 = 126

9) Answer: E

66.66% of Male person from HR department

= 2/3 of 345

= 230

Female person from both the department = 599

Sum = 599 + 230 = 829

Quantity of salt in bag B = 80 kg

Quantity of salt in mixture = (100 - 70)% of 80 = 24 kg

Then, quantity of sugar in mixture = 24 kg

Now, quantity of sugar in bag A = 24 x 100/20 = 120 kg
