Solutions:
1). c) Let Lalitha, Anita and Neha have 20x, 73x and 83x gold coins at present.
Initially, Lalitha has (20x + 25) coins, Anitha had (73x + 15) coins and Neeha had (83x + 30) coins.
Then 20x + 25 + 73x + 15 + 83x + 30 = 950 => 176x = 880 => x = 5
Therefore, Anitha had 73 × 5 + 15 = 380coins
2). b)
 Men Days Work 175 40 ¼ ? (x) 85 ¾
x = 175 × 40/85 × (¾)/(1/4) = 247
=> 247 – 175 = 72. That is 72 men will have to be employed.
3). a) Time taken for the elevator to make 1 round trip starting from the ground = 50 sec + 50 sec + 12 × 15 sec + 12 × 15 secs = 100 + 180 + 180 = 460 sec
Total number of round trips = (Total Time Taken)/(Time taken for one round trip)
= (5 ½ × 60 × 60)/460 = 11 × 60 × 60 / 2 × 460 = 43 approx.
4). d) One girl can be chosen in 4C1 = 4 ways and 4 boys can be chosen in 6C4 = 15 ways
∴ Total number of ways = 4 x 15 = 60 ways.
5). d) Let the principal be Rs. P and rate of interest be R% per annum.
Difference of C.I and S.I for 2 years = [P x (1 + R/100)2 – P] – (P x R x 2/100) = PR2/104
Difference of C.I and S.I for 3 years = [P x (1 + R/100)3 – P] – (P x R x 3/100) = PR2/104[(300 + R)/100]
Therefore, { PR2/104[(300 + R)/100]}/{ PR2/104} = 25/8 => (300 + R) = 625/2 => R = 12.5%

(9 – 10):
 P is Symbol % @ δ # & Meaning > ≤ = ≥ < Than Q
9). a) Given Statements: J δ F, F @ N, N % H, H # G
Decoded statements: J = F, F ≤ N, N > H, H ≥ G
Combined Statement: J = F ≤ N > H ≥ G
Conclusions:
I. G & N => G < N => From statement: N > H ≥ G => N > G Hence True
II. N # J => N ≥ J => From statement: J = F ≤ N => J ≤ N Hence true
III. F & J => F < J => From statement: J = F Hence false
IV. J @ G => J ≤ G => From statement: J = F ≤ N > H ≥ G => Relationship between J and G cannot be established. Hence false.
10). d) Given Statements: A @ B & C # D % E δ F # G
Decoded Statement: A ≤ B < C ≥ D > E = F ≥ G
Conclusions:
I. D # G, => D ≥ G False
II. B δ E, => B = E Conclusion cannot be determined. Hence False
III. C @ F => C ≤ F False

IV. A & C => A < C True
