**Answers :**

**1) Answer: e) **

**Directions (1 – 5): **

**Option (a): **

The energy consumed by Refrigerator in 2 days = 8 *2 = 16 units

The energy consumed by Washing machine in 3 days = 3*5 = 15 units

Difference = 1 units

The given option is true

**Option (b): **

The energy consumed by TV in two days = 4 *2 = 8 units

The energy consumed by Refrigerator in a day = 8 units

The given option is true

**Option (c): **

The energy consumed by Air cooler in a day = 4 units

The energy consumed by TV in a day = 4 units

The given option is true

**Option (d): **

The energy consumed by Water heater in 4 days = 3 *4 = 12 units

The energy consumed by Air cooler in 3 days = 4 * 3 = 12 units

The given option is true

**2) Answer: d) **

The energy consumed by Refrigerator in 30 days = 8 * 30 = 240 units

The energy consumed by Water heater in 30 days = (3*3) * 30 = 270 units

The energy consumed by washing machine in 30 days = 5 * 30 = 150 units

The energy consumed by Grinder in 30 days = 1 * 30 = 30 units

The energy consumed by TV in 30 days = 4 * 30 = 120 units

Total energy consumed by all the appliances in 30 days.

= 240 + 270 + 150 + 30 + 120 = 810 units

Total cost = 100 + (810 – 120) * 1.5

= > 100 + 1035 = Rs. 1135

**3) Answer: b) **

**Option (a): **

The energy consumed by water heater in 15 days = 15 * 3 = 45 units

The energy consumed by washing machine in 30 days = 5 * 30 = 150 units

30% of the energy consumed by washing machine in 30 days = 150 * 30/100

= 45 units

This option is true.

**Option (b): **

The energy consumed by Air cooler in 5 days = 4 * 5 = 20 units

The energy consumed by TV in 5 days = 5*4 = 20 units

The energy consumed by Air cooler in 5 days is 100% of the energy consumed by TV in 5 days

This option is not true.

**Option (c): **

c) The energy consumed by washing machine in a day is 20% of the energy consumed by all the appliances in a day.

The energy consumed by washing machine in a day = 5 units

The energy consumed by all the appliances in a day = (8+4+3+5+4+1)

= 25 units

20% of the energy consumed by all the appliances in a day = 25 * 20/100 = 5 units

This option is true.

**4) Answer: d) **

Total energy consumption in 30 days in a month of 30 days

= 240 + 120 + 90 + 150 + 120 + 30

= 750 units

Total cost = 100 + (750 – 120) * 1.5

= 100 + 630 * 1.5

= 100 + 945

= Rs. 1045

Fixed cost with an increase of 30% = 100 * 130/100 = Rs. 130

Total cost = 130 + (750 – 120) * 1.5

= 130 + 630 * 1.5

= 130 + 945

= Rs. 1075

Required percentage = [(1075 – 1045)/1045] * 100 = 3 %

**5) Answer: a) **

Required percentage = [(4+4+5)/(8+1+3)] * 100

= (13/12) * 100 = 108.33%

**Direction (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: e)**

Let, red = x

White = y

Blue = z

**From I:**

The bag contains only three different coloured balls viz. red, white and blue.

**From II:**

Probability of drawing one red ball from the bag is Â¼.

**From III:**

Probability of drawing one blue ball from the bag is 1/3.

**From I, II and III:**

x/(x + y + z) = Â¼

=> 4x = x + y + z

=> 3x â€“ y â€“ z = 0

And

z/(x + y + z) = 1/3

=> 3z = x + y + z

=> x + y â€“ 2z = 0

Since, there are three variables, we need three equations to solve the question.

Hence, even I, II and III together are not sufficient.

**7) Answer: d)**

**From I and II:**

We know that

Amount on CI = P x (1 + r/100)^{t}

=> 44100 = P x (1 + 5/100)^{2}

=> 44100 = P x (105/100) x (105/100)

=> P = 44100 x (100/105) x (100/105)

=> P = Rs.40000

And

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

8000 = (25000 x r x 4)/100

=> 8000 = 1000 x r

=> r = 8%

We know that, for two years

CI â€“ SI = P x (r/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (8/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (2/25)^{2}

= 40000 x 4/625

= Rs. 256

**From II and III:**

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

8000 = (25000 x r x 4)/100

=> 8000 = 1000 x r

=> r = 8%

And

Amount on SI = (P x r x t)/100 + P

=> 59200 = (P x 8 x 6)100 + P

=> 59200 = 48P/100 + P

=> 59200 = (48P + 100P)/100

=> 59200 = 148P/100

=> P = 592000 x 100/148

=> P = Rs. 40000

We know that, for two years

CI â€“ SI = P x (r/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (8/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (2/25)^{2}

= 40000 x (4/625)

= Rs. 256

Hence, Only II and either I or III are sufficient.

**8) Answer: a)**

**From I:**

Urmila, Tina and Jaya invested in the ratio 8:4:5. After one year Tina doubled her investment.

**From II:**

At the end of three years, they earned a total profit of Rs. 80000.

**From III:**

After two years, Jaya doubled her investment.

**From I, II and III:**

Let, amounts invested by Urmila, Tina and Jaya be Rs.8k, Rs.4k and Rs.5k respectively.

Ratio of share in the profit:

Urmila : Tina : Jaya = (8k x 3) : (4k + 8k x 2) : (5k x 2 : 10k)

= 24k : 20k : 20k

= 6 : 5 : 5

Share of Urmila in the profit = [6/(6 + 5 + 5)] x 80000

= (6/16) x 80000

= Rs. 30000

**9) Answer: c)**

**From I, **

The possibilities of two digit perfect squares are 16, 25, 36, 49, 64 and 81

The two digit number is a perfect square and also a perfect cube only 64 satisfies the condition.

**From II, **

The possibilities of sum of the two digits of the number is 10

73 (or) 37 => difference = 36

64 (or) 46 => difference = 18

82 (or) 28 => difference = 54

91 (or) 19 => difference = 72

When the digits are reversed the original number is decreased by 18. From that the original number is greater than the reversed number. Only 64 satisfy the given condition.

**10) Answer: d)**

**From I:**

Aman, Sunil and Kabir entered into a partnership for three years and at the end of three years they earned a profit of Rs.200000.

**From II:**

Ratio of investment amount of Aman, Sunil and Kabir is 3:5:4 respectively:.

**From III:**

At the end of two years, Kabir doubled his investment.

**From I, II and III:**

Let the investment amounts of Aman, Sunil and Kabir be Rs.3x, Rs.5x and Rs.4x respectively.

Ratio of share in the profit:

Aman : Sunil : Kabir = (3x + 3x + 3x) : (5x + 5x + 5x) : (4x + 4x + 8x)

= 9x: 15x: 16x

= 9:15:16

Share of Aman in the profit = (9/40) x 200000 = Rs. 45000

Hence, all I, II and III together are sufficient.
