Solution:

1). Production in 1998 = 40,000 units
Price per car in 1998 = Rs. 50000
Sale of the company in 1998 = RS. 40000 ร 50000
= Rs. 2000000000
= Rs. 200 cr
Excise outgo = 13.75% of 200 cr = Rs. 27.5 cr

2). CP of the car bought in 1996 = Rs. 1.25 lakh
SP of the car sold in 2001 = 60% of 2.5 lakh  =  Rs. 1.5 lakh
Profit = 25 thousand

3). For 1997, by using the given formula as
60000 = [(1150 cr + Profit Margin) / 2 lakh]
Or, profit margin = 60,000 ร 2 โ 1150 cr
= 1200 cr โ 1150 cr = Rs. 50 cr

4). Cost of production = 1150 cr โ 2.5% of 1150  cr
= Rs. 1121.25 cr
Profit margin =  60000 ร 2 lakh โ 1121.25 cr
= 1200 cr โ 1121.25 cr = Rs. 78.75 cr

5). Production in 1999 = 70000 units
Price per car in 1999 = 1.0 lakh
Sale of the company in 1999 = 70000 ร 1 lakh
= Rs. 700 cr
Excise outgo = 15% of 700 cr = Rs. 105 cr

6). Time taken by boat A to travel 200 km = [200 / (18 โ 10)] = 25 hrs
Time taken by boat B to travel 200 km = [200 / (14 โ 12)[ = 100 hrs
:. Reqd difference = (100 โ 25) = 75 hours

7). Total distance travelled by Shyam = 100 km
Distance covered by boat A = 1000 ร (40 / 100)
= 400 km
Time taken by boat A = [400 / (18 โ 10)[ = 50 hours
Time taken by boat B = {[1000 ร (18 / 100)] / (14 โ 12)} = 90 hours
Time taken by boat C = {[1000 ร (16 / 100)] / (10 โ 6)} = 65 hours
Time taken by boat D = {[1000 ร (16 / 100)] / (14 โ 10)} = 40 hours
:.Total time taken by Shyam = (50 + 90 + 65 + 40) = 245 hours

8). Speed of boat C after 40% increase in its speed = [10 ร (140 / 100)] = 14 kmph
Speed of stream after 20% decrease = [6 ร (80 / 100)] = 4.8 kmph
Now, time taken by boat C = [200 / (14 โ 4.8)] = (200 / 9.2) = 21(17 / 23) hours
Time taken by boat previously = 200 (10 โ 6)
= (200 / 4) = 50 hours
:.Difference = [50 โ 21(17 / 23)[ = [28 (6 / 23)] hours

9). New speed of boat D = [14 ร (110 / 100)] = 15.4 kmph
Time taken to travel 500 km = [500 / (15.4 โ 10)] = 92.54 โ 92.6 km
