SOLUTIONS:

1.Ans. C.
10% of the total expenses was spent on
Clothing
Amount spent on Clothing = \$2500
3% of the total expenses was spent on
Favors
Amount spent on Favors= \$750
50% of the total expenses was spent on
Catering and venue
Amount spent on Catering and venue =
\$12500
Average amount spent
= (2500+750+12500)/3
Average amount spent = \$ 5250
Hence the correct option is option (C).
Alternate way:
% of budget spent on Clothing =10
% of budget spent on Favours =3
% of budget spent on Catering and
venue = 50
% of budget spend on Clothing, favour
and catering and venue=10+3+50=63
Avg budget spend on Clothing, favour
and catering and venue= (1/3) *63% of
25000 =5250

2. Ans. B.
10% of the total expenses comprised of
Photography costs.
∴ Money spent on Photography
=   10/100 * 25000
∴ Money spent on Photography = \$2500
Hence the correct option is option (B).

3. Ans. A.
1% of the total expenses comprised of
Transportation costs.
∴ Money spent on Transportation
= 1/100 * 25000
∴ Money spent on Transportation =
\$250
3% of the total expenses comprised of
Favors costs.
∴ Money spent on Favors = 3/100 * 25000
∴ Money spent on Favors = \$750
∴ Required ratio =  250/750 = 1/3
∴ Required ratio = 1 : 3
Hence the correct option is option (A).
Alternate way :
% of budget spent on Transportation=1
% of budget spent on Favours =3
Required Ratio - % of budget spent on
Transportation : % of budget spent on
Favours
1: 3

4. Ans. E.
50% of the total expenses was spent on
Catering and venue
Amount spent on Catering and venue =
\$12500 ……….(1)
10% of the total expenses was spent on
Clothing
Amount spent on Clothing = \$2500
3% of the total expenses was spent on
Cake
Amount spent on Cake = \$750
Total amount spent on Clothing and
Cake = 2500 + 750 = \$ 3250 ………(2)
Difference = 12500 - 3250 = \$ 9250
Hence the correct option is option (E).

5. Ans. B.
50% of the total expenses was spent on
Catering and venue
Amount spent on Catering and venue =
\$12500
12% of this is to be saved.
Thus money saved from catering costs
= 12/100 * 12500 = \$ 1500 …………(1)
10% of the total expenses was spent on
Decorations
Amount spent on Decorations = \$2500
2% of this is to be spent extra.
∴ extra money spent =2/100 * 2500 = \$
50 ………..(2)
From (1) and (2)
Money saved = 1500 - 50 = \$ 1450
Hence the correct option is option (B).

6.Ans. C.
Delhi house in 2009 = 55,000
Chandigarh house in 2007=25,000
Ratio = 11:5

7. Ans. D.

Delhi house in 2007= 45,000+45,000
Required % = (20000/90000)*100 =

8.Ans. C.
Total number of houses sold in 2010 =
25,000 + 35,000 + 60,000 = 1,20,000
Average number of houses sold in 2010
= 120000/3 = 40000

9. Ans. A.
Average number of houses sold in Delhi
= (45000+50000+55000+60000)/4 =
52500
Average number of houses sold in
Chandigarh =
(25000+45000+30000+25000)/4 =
31250
Difference = (52500-31250) = 21250

10. Ans. B.
Required difference = 1,35,000 –
125000 = 10,000
