**Direction (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: b)**

From question,

Adhi+Rosy+Soni+Malu+Ram=28*5=140

From statement I,

3 years after, Rosy + Soni=56

Present age sum of Rosy + Soni=50

3 years ago, Ram + Adhi = 40

Present age, Ram + Adhi=46

Sum of the ages of Adhi and Rosy=27.5*2=55

(Malu + Soni)+5=Rosy + Adhi

(Malu + Soni)+5=55

Malu + Soni=50

Malu + Soni + Adhi + Rosy=50+55=105

From question, Adhi + Rosy + Soni + Malu + Ram=28*5=140

Ram=140-105=35

Ram + Adhi=46

Adhi=46-35=11

Adhi + Rosy=55

Rosy=55-11=44

Rosy + Soni=50

Soni=50-44=6

Malu + Soni=50

Malu=44

Youngest person Soni=6 years

So, Statement I alone is sufficient to the answer the question.

From Statement II,

Eldest person in the group is five years elder than the youngest person in the group. Seven after average age of Malu and Ram will become 26 years.

Malu + Ram=38

So, Statement II alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

From Statement III,

Average ages of Malu and Soni is 22 years and average ages of Adhi and Soni is 24 years.

Malu + Soni=44

Adhi + Soni=48

So, Statement III alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

**7) Answer: c)**

From question,

P=18000

From Statement I,

Difference rate of interest CI and SI=7.5%

For one year,

CI=p(1+R1/100)-p

CI=18000((1+R1/100)-1)

CI=18000(R1/100)

CI=180R1

SI=18000*1*R2/100

SI=180R2

Difference=180R1-180R2

=180(R1-R2)

R1-R2=7.5%(From Statement I)

Difference=180*7.5=1350

So, statements I alone is sufficient to the answer the question.

From Statement II,

Ratio of rate of interest for C.I. and S.I. is 5:6.

So, Statement II alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

**8) Answer: a)**

From statement I,

Let number of blue color shirt=n

nC_{3}/45C_{3}=7/20

So, Statement I alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

From Statement II,

Let number of White color shirt=x

xC_{2}/45C_{2}=8/25

So, Statement II alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

**9) Answer: c)**

From statement I,

40/(b-5)-40/(b+5)=12/60

b=45kmph

So, Statement I alone is sufficient to the answer the question.

From Statement II,

Speed of downstream=x

Speed of upstream=y

Speed of boat=z

Speed of boat z =x+y/2

We required both time and distance but time only given

So, Statement II alone is not sufficient to the answer the question.

**10) Answer: d) **

From statement I,

Area of the triangle=1/2*base*altitude

Area of the rectangle=length* breadth

½*base*altitude=Breadth*altitude

½ base=8

Base=16cm

So, Statement I alone is sufficient to the answer the question.

From statement II,

Cost per hectare=14

Total cost for the field=280

Area of filed=280/14=20 hectare

Area of the triangle=1/2*base*altitude

20*10000 square meter=1/2*2x*x

200000=x*x

x=200√5

Base=2x=400√5

So, Statement II alone is sufficient to the answer the question.
