Answers Key:
1).a   2).a   3).d   4).b   5).d   6).c   7).d   8).d   9).d   10).b 11).a  12).e  13).a  14). c 15).d

Detailed Solutions:
1). a) LCM of 9, 11, 13 = 1287
Therefore, the number which, after being divided by 9, 11, 13 leaves in each case the same remainder i.e 6 = 1287 + 6 = 1293
Required least number = 1294 – 1293 = 1

2). a) CP of 30 kgs = 30 x 9.50 = Rs. 285
CP of 40kgs = 40 x 8.50 = Rs. 340
Total CP of 70kgs = 285 + 340 = Rs.625
SP of 70kgs = 70 x 8.90 = Rs.623
Loss = 625 – 623 = Rs.2

3). d) (A+B) can do the work in 72/7 days. So (A+B) in one day can do=7/72 parts of the work.
(C+B) can do the work in 40/3 days. So (C+B) in one day can do=3/40 parts of the work.
As B is 25% more efficient than C,this impliesif C can do the work in X days (which means C will do a 1/X work in one day), B can do (1+0.25)*1/X work in one day.
i.e C+B together in one day can do 1/X*(1+1.25) parts of work.
This implies 2.25*(1/X)=3/40(from previous relation)
by solving this we get X=30
So C takes 30 days to complete the work.
So B takes 30/1.25=24 days to complete the work.(i.e. B alone can do 1/24 parts of work in one day)
Now using (A+B) work relation we see A alone can do (7/72-1/24)=1/18 parts work in one day.So A can complete the work in 18 days lonely.
Now using previous findings C can do alone 1/30 parts of work in one day.
So (A+C) can do (1/18+1/30) parts of work in one day.
(A+C) can do the whole work in 1/[(1/18)+(1/30)] days i.e. 11.25.
So approximately 11 days they will take to complete the work.

4). b) ½ Sonu = 4/7 Rajiv; Rajini = 2 Sonu
Rajini = 32000 => Rajiv = ¼ x 7/4 x 32000 = 14000

5). d) Remaining amount = 100 – 12 – 22 – 28 = 38%
¼ of remaining amount = 3610
Thus 38% = 3610 × 4
Money spent on bills = 12/100 × (3610 × 4)/38 × 100 = Rs.4560

(6 – 10): By the given information we get:
 Station Get IN Get DOWN Base station Eswar and (Chaitu, Fizan) or (Basha, Dinesh) ------- A (Chaitu, Fizan) or (Basha, Dinesh) ------- B ------- Only Fizan C Only Gokul Basha, Divya D Amith Only Eswar E ------- Amith, Gokul, Chaitu
