1).c)
2).b)
3).d)
4).b)
5).d)
6).a) Let Anitha’s monthly income be Rs. x.
According to the questions,
18% of x = 3888 =>(18 × x)/100 = 3888 =>x = (3888 × 100)/18 = Rs. 21600
Therefore, Akshama’s annual income = Rs. 259200
7).d) Amount = P(1 + R/100)^{T} = 96000 (1 + 10/100)^{3}
= 96000 x 11/10 x 11/10 x 11/10 = Rs.127776
8).c) Let the maximum marks in the examination be x.
According to the questions,
12 of x = 290 – 203 =>(x × 12)/100 = 87 => x = (87 × 100)/12 = 725
9).a) Let the CP of 1 diary and 1 calendar be Rs. x and Rs. Y respectively.According to the questions, 8x + 10 y = 3138Multiplying both sides by 3/2, we have,12x + 15y = 3138 × (3/2) = Rs. 4707
10).d) Let the present ages of Vaibhav and jagat be 12 x and 7x years respectively.According to the questions,
(12x + 6)/(7x + 6) = 3/2 =>24x + 12 = 21x + 18 =>24x – 21x = 18 12
=>3x = 6 => x = (6/3) = 2
Required difference = 12 x – 7x = 5x = 5 × 2 = 10 years.
