Solutions:
1). b)
Let the present age of these two persons are ‘x’& ‘y’
(x + y)/2 = 46
x + y = 92
(x – 16)/(y – 16) = 1/2
2x – 32 = y – 16
2x – y = 16
Hence, x = 36 years& y = 56 years
Difference = 56 – 36 = 20
2). b)
Population = 480000 × 108/100 × 91/100 = 471744
3). b)
Let there be x men originally.
X men finish the work in 60 days and (x + 8) finish it in 50 days.
x men finish the job in 60 days
⇒ 1 man can finish it in 60x days
(x + 8) men finish the job in 50 days
⇒ 1 man can finish it in 50(x + 8) days
Therefore, 60x = 50(x + 8) ⇒ 10x = 400 ⇒ x = 40
Hence, there were 40 men originally.
4). d)
Part filled in 1 hour = (1/8 – 1/12) = 1/24
Time taken to fill the cistern = 24 hrs.
Water moved in it in 24 hrs = (6 x 60 x 24) litres = 8640 litres
Capacity of the cistern = 8640 litres.
5). b)
MP = Rs. 200, Discount = (12.5/100 × 200) = Rs.25
Therefore SP = (200 – 25) = Rs.175
Let the CP be Rs. x. Then, 125/100 × x = 175 => x = (175 × 100/125) = 140
Therefore CP = Rs.140

6). a)

8). b)
