Answers:

1) Answer: a)

Raju – Moni = Anu – Raju

2* Raju = Anu + Moni

Sum of the ages of Moni and Anu = 56 years

2*Raju = 56

Raju = 56/2 = 28 years

2) Answer: d)

Compound interest = P (1 + R/100)N – P (where P = principal amount, R = rate of interest, N = time)

Compounded yearly,

= > 30000 * (110/100) * (110/100) = 36300

C.I = 36300 – 30000 = Rs. 6300

Compounded half yearly,

= > 30000 * (105/00) * (105/100) * (105/100) * (105/100) = 36465.1875

C.I = 36465.1875 – 30000 = Rs. 6465.1875

Required difference = 6465.1875 – 6300 = Rs. 165.1875

3) Answer: b)

CP1 + CP2 = 665

= > 3 : 4

7’s = 665

1’s = 95

CP1 = 95*3 = 285

CP2 = 95*4 = 380

4) Answer: b)

Let the total profit be x,

A’s profit = (15/100) * x + (70/100) * x * (12/21)

2090 = (15/100) * x + (40/100) * x

(55/100) * x = 2090

X = 2090*(20/11) = Rs. 3800

B’s profit = 3800 – 2090 = Rs. 1710

5) Answer: b)

Let the C.P be x,

M.P = 3200 + C.P = 3200 + x

- P = (3200 + x) – 400 = 2800 + x

S.P = (120/100) * x = (6/5) * x

2800 + x = (6/5) * x

2800 = (1/5) * x

C.P (x) = 14000

To earn a profit of 25 %,

P = (125/100)*14000 = Rs. 17500

6. Option C

(3×10%)of A = (5 × 12%) of B = (6 × 15%) of C

(A, B, C are the investments)

0.3 A = 0.6 B = 0.9 C

A:B:C: = 6:3:2

7. Option E

CP for A = 9720*100/(100-19) = 12000

SP with 17% profit for A = 12000*(100+17)/100 = 14040

B’s gain = 14040 – 9720 = 4320

8. Option D

Let total number of voters = x

Voters who cast their votes = 0.75x

Valid votes polled = 0.98*0.75x

Valid votes polled for a candidate

=> 18522 = 0.98*0.75*0.75x

=>x = 33600

9. Option A

Length of each side of rhombus = 80 cm

Let the diagonals = 3x, 4x

(3x/2 )^2 + (4x/2 )^2 = 6400

X^2 = 6400 ×4/25 = 1024

=> x = 32

Area of rhombus = 1/2× 96 × 128 = 6144 cm^2

10. Option C

8/13 ==== 5/7

====9/13

2/91 ====1/13

2:7
