*SOLUTIONS:*__1.Answer & Solution__

D) 80

Explanation:

Let the present ages of A and B are 3x and 5x.

Then, 10 yrs ago, (3x-10) = ½ * (5x-10)

Solve, x = 10

So present ages of A and B are 30 and 50 resp, their sum = 80

2.Answer & Solution

E) None of these

Explanation:

A’s share : B’s share : C’s share

50*4 + 50/2 * 8 : 45*6 + 45/2 * 6 : 70*6

80 : 81 : 84

3.Answer & Solution

B) Rs 58.25

Explanation:

Average = 13*50 + 15*60 + 12*65 / 13+15+12

4.Answer & Solution

A) Rs 100

Explanation:

Interests are equal. So,

1st part *5*10/100 = 2nd part * 6*9/100

This gives, 1st part : 2nd part = 27 : 25

So 1st part = 27(27+25) * 2600 = 1350

2nd part = 2600 – 1350 = 1250

So diff = Rs 100

5.Answer & Solution

B) 50, 30

Explanation:

By method of allegation:

Milk water

70% 30%

. 55%

25% 15%

25 : 15 = 5 : 3

Milk = 5/(5+3) * 80 = 50 l

Water = 80 – 50 = 30 l

6) Answer: A

x + 9x + 20 = 0

x + 4x + 5x + 20 = 0

x(x + 4) + 5(x + 4) = 0

(x + 5)(x + 4) = 0 x = -5,

-4 y + 13y + 42 = 0

y + 6y + 7y + 42 = 0

y(y + 6) + 7(y + 6) = 0

(y + 7)(y + 6) = 0 y = -7, -6

x > y

7) Answer: C

x – 18x + 72 = 0

x – 12x – 6x + 72 = 0

x(x – 12) – 6(x – 12) = 0

x = 6, 12

7/9 y – 21y + 108 = 0

y – 12y – 9y + 108 = 0

y(y – 12) – 9(y – 12) = 0

(y – 9)(y – 12) = 0

y = 9, 12

Relationship between x and y cannot be established.

8) Answer: C

2x – 2x – 84 = 0

2x – 14x + 12x – 84 = 0

2x(x – 7) + 12(x – 7) = 0

(2x + 12)(x – 7) = 0

x = -6, 7

y – 2y – 48 = 0

y – 8y + 6y – 48 = 0

y(y – 8) + 6(y – 8) = 0

(y + 6)(y – 8) = 0

y = -6, 8

Relationship between x and y cannot be established

9) Answer:

D 2x + y = 34 ——–(1)

x + 3y = 47 —–(2)

(1) – (2) * 2 -5y = -60

8/9 y = 12 x = 47 – 36 = 11

x < y

10.Answer: E

x + 32x – 144 = 0

x + 36x – 4x – 144 = 0

x(x + 36) – 4(x + 36) = 0

(x – 4)(x + 36) = 0

x = 4, -36

y – 31y + 108 = 0

y – 27y – 4y + 108 = 0

y(y – 27) – 4(y – 27) = 0

(y – 4)(y – 27) = 0

y = 4, 27 x ≤ y
