Detailed Explanation:

1). Quantity of Banana at More shop = 1200 × 20 / 100 = 240 kg
Quantity of Pears at Reliance shop = 1000 × 14 / 100 = 140 kg
Required % = 240 / 140 × 100 = 171.42% more than the quantity of Pears at Reliance shop.

2). Quantity of Grapes at More shop = 1200 × 10 / 100 = 120 kg
Quantity of Grapes at Reliance shop = 1000 × 16 / 100 = 160 kg
Required difference = 160 – 120 = 40 kg

3). Cost of total fruits at More shop = Cost of Pomegranate + Cost of Pears + Cost of Grapes + Cost of Banana + Cost of Orange fruits
= (1200 × 24 / 100 × 30 +  1200 × 16 / 100 × 40 + 1200 × 10 / 100 × 18 + 1200 × 20 / 100 × 20 + 1200 × 30 / 100 × 15)
= 8640 + 7680 + 2160 + 4800 + 5400
= `28680
Cost of total fruits at Reliance shop
= (1000 × 24 / 100 × 30 + 1000 × 14 / 100 × 40 + 1000 × 16 / 100 × 18 + 1000 × 20 / 100 × 20 + 1000 × 26 / 100 × 15)
= 7200 + 5600 + 2880 + 4000 + 3900
= `23580
Required difference = 28680 – 23580 = `5100

4). Cost of Pomegranate at More shop = 30 × 1200 × 24 / 100 = `8640
Cost of Pears =     40 × 1200 × 16 / 100 = `7680
Cost of Banana = 20 × 1200 × 20 / 100 = `4800
Required ratio = 8640:  7680: 4800
= 9 :  8 : 5

5). Quantity of Pomegranate at Reliance shop = 1000 × 24 / 100 = 240 kg
Quantity of Pomegranate at More shop = 1200 × 24 / 100 = 288 kg
Required % = 288 × 100 / 240 = 120% of the quantity of Pomegranate at Shop  More

6). Let the common ratio be x
∴length of the rectangular field = 7x m
Breadth of the rectangular field = 2x m
According to the question,
7x × 2x = 3584
x = 16
∴required perimeter = 2 (7 × 16 + 2 × 16)
= 2 (112 + 32)
= 2 × 144 = 288 m

7). Required number of girls = 610 × 80/100 × 175/100 = 854

8). Let the common ratio be x
∴the percentages of father’s, mother’s and daughter’s are 7x, 6x, 2x respectively.
According to the question
6x 2x= 24
4x = 24
x = 6

∴father’s present age = 7 × 6 = 42 years

10).    32% of 750 < 98 % of 250
32 / 100 × 750 < 98/100 × 250
240 < 245
