**Answers :**

**Direction (1-5) :**

**1) Answer: c)**

**Quantity I:**

Area of the square = a^{2} = 484

Side of the square (a) = 22 m

Length of the rectangle = 44 m

Breadth = 29 m

Area of the rectangle = 44*29 = 1276 Sq. m

**Quantity II:**

The perimeter of a rectangle = 176 m

2*(l + b) = 176

l + b = 88 —Ã (1)

l â€“ b = 16 —Ã (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

Length = 52 m, Breadth = 36 m

Area of the rectangle = 52*36 = 1872 Sq. m

**Quantity II > Quantity I**

**2) Answer: c)**

**Quantity I:**

Downstream speed= 72/8 = 9 km/hr

Upstream speed= 9*(2/3) = 6 km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = Â½ *(9+6) = 7.5 km/hr

**Quantity II:**

Downstream speed = 90/6 = 15 km/hr

Downstream speed = Speed of boat in still water + speed of stream

Let the speed of boat be x,

=> x + 6 = 15

=> x = 9 km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 9 km/hr

**Quantity I < Quantity II**

**3) Answer: c)**

Now, Loss = CP â€“ SP

110 = x + x + 200 â€“ 125x/100 – (x + 200)*(70/100)

110 = 2x + 200 – 125x/100 â€“ 70x/100 â€“ 140

110 = 2x + 60 â€“ 195x/100

50 = (200x â€“ 195x)/100

50 = 5x/100

X = 5000/5 = Rs. 1000

**Quantity I:**

Profit earned on selling article A

= > 1000*(25/100) = Rs. 250

**Quantity II:**

The loss incurred on selling article B

= > 1200*(30/100) = Rs. 360

**Quantity II > Quantity I**

**4) Answer: a)**

Total number of balls = 6 + 4 + 5 + 7 = 22

**Quantity I:**

n(S) = 22C_{3}

The probability of getting at least one black ball = 1 â€“ P(none is black ball)

P(none is black ball)

n(E) = 15C_{3 }

P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 15C_{3}/22C_{3} = 13/44

The probability of getting at least one black ball = 1 â€“ (13/44) = 31/44

**Quantity II:**

n(S) = 22C_{4 }

n(E) = Probability that all the balls are of different colours = 6C1 and 4C1 and 5C1 and 7C1

P(E) = n(E)/n(S) = 24/209

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**5) Answer: c)**

**Quantity I:**

âˆ›512 x – âˆš9216 = 0

8x = 96

X = 12

**Quantity II:**

x/(2x + y) = 4/13

12/(24 + y) = 4/13

24 + y = 39

Y = 39 â€“ 24 = 15

**Quantity II > Quantity I**

**Direction (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: c)**

The ratio between the rate of interest of person D to that of E = 2: 1

The rate of interest of person E = (10/2)*1 = 5 %

The period of investment is same for both the person A and D, i.e.,

Period for D = 2 years

Let the principle amount invested by the person D and E be x and y respectively,

The principle amount invested by the person D

= > (x*2*10)/100 = 72000 â€“ x

= > 20x = 7200000 â€“ 100x

= > 120x = 7200000

= > x = (7200000/120) = Rs. 60000

The interest received by the person D

= > (60000*2*10)/100

= > Rs. 12000

The principle amount invested by the person E

= > (y*3*5)/100 = 86250 â€“ y

= > 15y = 8625000 â€“ 100y

= > 115y = 8625000

= > y = 8625000/115 = Rs. 75000

The interest received by the person E

= > (75000*3*5)/100 = Rs. 11250

Required difference = 12000 â€“ 11250 = Rs. 750

**7) Answer: a)**

The total amount received by the person B after completing the given period

= > Rs. 47200

The total amount received by the person C

= > (98600/2) – 4900

= > Rs. 44400

Let the principle amount invested by B be x,

The principle amount invested by the person B

= > (x*3*6)/100 = 47200 â€“ x

= > 18x = 4720000 â€“ 100x

= > 118x = 4720000

= > x = 4720000/118 = Rs. 40000

The interest received by the person B

= > (40000*3*6)/100 = Rs. 7200

The interest received by the person C

= > 44400 â€“ 30000 = Rs. 14400

Required ratio = 7200: 14400 = 1: 2

**8) Answer: d)**

The average principle amount invested by all the given persons except E

= > Rs. 47000

The total principle amount invested by all the given persons except E

= > 47000*5 = Rs. 235000

The principle amount invested by the person B and D

= > 235000 â€“ (85000 + 30000 + 20000)

= > Rs. 100000

B + D = 100000 -Ã (1)

B â€“ D = 20000 -Ã (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

2B = 120000

B = 60000 and D = 40000

The principle amount invested by D = Rs. 40000

**9) Answer: b)**

The rate of interest for the person A

= > (85000*2*r1)/100 = 98600 â€“ 85000

= > r1 = (13600*100)/(85000*2) = 8 %

The interest received by F = Rs. 15000

The rate of interest for the person F

= > (20000*5*r2)/100 = 15000

= > r2 = 1500000/100000 = 15 %

Required % = (8/15)*100 = 53.33 %

**10) Answer: c)**

The principle amount invested by B = Rs. 40000

The interest earned by the person B

= > (40000*3*6)/100 = Rs. 7200

The total amount received by the person B = 40000 + 7200 = Rs. 47200

The total interest received by the person F = Rs. 15000

The total amount received by the person F = 20000 + 15000 = Rs. 35000

The average total amount received by the person B, D and F together

= > (47200 + 72000 + 35000)/3 = Rs. 51400
