Direction (1-5) :

1) Answer: c)

820 ÷ 21 × 3 +? ≈ 240

Or, 39 × 3 +? ≈ 240

Or,? ≈ 240 – 117 = 123

2) Answer: b)

? ≈ (24.02)2 – 299 ÷ 12 × 13.95

≈ 576 – 25 × 14 = 576 – 350 = 226 ≈ 225

3) Answer: c)

(?)3 + √49 = 92 × 876 ÷ √1296

(?)3 + 7 = 92 × 576 ÷ 36

(?)3 + 7 = 92 × 576 ÷36

(?)3 = 1465

?= 11.3

4) Answer: b)

? = (21.5 * 10)1/3 + (43 * 6)1/2

? = (215)(1/3) + (258)(1/2)

? = (63)(1/3) + (162)(1/2)

? = 6 + 16 = 22

5) Answer: a)

40 * (440/100) + ?/100 * 655 = 228

4*44 + ? * 6.55 = 229

? = (229 – 176) / 7

? = 53/7 = 7.5 = 8

Directions (6-10):

6) Answer: a)

The expenditure of company A in the year 2013 = Rs. 138 lakhs

The income of company A in the year 2013

= > 138*(114/100) = 157.32 lakhs

The income of company B in the year 2014 = 138*(100/75) = 184 lakhs

The expenditure of company B in the year 2014

= >184*(100/115) = 160 lakhs

Required sum = 157.32 + 160 = 317.32 lakhs

7) Answer: d)

The income of company A in the year 2015 = The income of company B in the year 2017 = x

The expenditure of company A in the year 2015 = x*(100/114)

The expenditure of company B in the year 2017 = x*(100/109)

Required ratio = [x*(100/114)] : [x*(100/109)]

= >109 : 114

8) Answer: b)

The income of company A in the year 2015 = 95 lakhs

The expenditure of company A in the year 2015

= >95* (100/114) = 83.33 lakhs

The expenditure of company B in the year 2016 = 110 lakhs

The income of company B in the year 2016

= > 110*(115/100) = 126.5 lakhs

Required % = [(126.5 – 88.33)/126.5]*100 = 30.17 % = 30 % less

9) Answer: a)

The average income of company A and B in the year 2018

= > [125*(116/100) + 140*(110/100)]/2

= > [145 + 154]/2 = 149.5 lakhs

10) Answer: c)

The expenditure of company A in the year 2017 = 120 lakhs

The Income of company A in the year 2017

= > 120*(115/100) = 138 lakhs

The income of company B in the year 2018 = 154 lakhs

The expenditure of company B in the year 2018

= > 154*(100/110) = 140 lakhs

Required difference = 140 – 138 = 2 lakhs
