Solutions:
1). a) A certain sum is invested for certain time, amounts to Rs A1 at r1% per annum. But when invested r2% per annum, it amounts to Rs A2, then the time is given by
[(A1 – A2)/(A2r1 – A1r2)] x 100
Therefore, time = [(450 – 350)/(350 x 7 – 450 x 5)] x 100 = 50
2). c) If the SI on a certain sum for 2 years at r% be Rs 'S' then the CI is given by the following formula, CI = (r + 200)/200 x S = (6 + 200)/200 x 300 = Rs. 309
3). a) Mean value of money per student = 4800/65 = 64P
 Boys Girls 100 40 64 24 36
Therefore, Boys : Girls = 4 : 6
Therefore number of boys = 75/10 x 4 = 30
Number of girls = 75 – 30 = 45
4). a) Let 5 men and 2 boys can do the work in X days. Hence a man and a boy together can do the samework in 4X days.
If a1 men and b1 boys can do a piece of work in x days and a2 men and b2 boys can do it in y days, then the following relationship is obtained
1 man = (yb2 – xb1)/(xa1 – ya2) boys
The required answer = (4X x 1 – X x 2)/(X x 5 – 4X x 1) = 2:1
5). d) Speed of the train = 120 + 80/20 = 10m/sec
Time taken by train to cross the man = 120/10 = 12sec
6). c) Only III and IV follows

7). b) Only I and II follows

8). d) Only III follows

9). e) Only I and either II or IV follows

10). e) Only either I or IV and II follow
