e) None of these

Let the cost price be Rs. X,

X*(87/100) + 84 = x*(115/100)

(115x/100) â€“ (87x/100) = 84

28x/100 = 84

X = 84*(100/28)

X = 300

Cost price = Rs. 300

Selling price = 300*(120/100) = Rs. 360

Total sum = X = A + B + C

A= (2/5)*X + 120

B = X/4 – 190

C = 420

Total sum(X) = (2X/5) + 120 + (X/4) – 190 + 420

X= (8X + 5X)/20 + 350

X â€“ (13x/20) = 350

7x/20 = 350

X = 1000

65 % of the total sum

= > 1000*(65/100) = Rs. 650

A can do the work in,

= > (1/3)*work = 5

= > Whole work = 15 days

B can do the work in,

= > (2/5)*work = 10

= > Whole work = 25 days

(A + B)â€™s one day work = (1/15) + (1/25) = 40/(15*25) = 8/75

(A + B) can do the work in, 75/8 = 9 3/8 days

S.I = PNR/100

2400 = (15000*2*R)/100

R = (2400*100)/30000

R = 8 %

Corresponding CI:

15000*(8/100) = 1200

16200*(8/100) = 1296

C.I = 1200 + 1296 = Rs. 2496

Let the cost price be Rs. 1,

Selling price of mixture = Rs. 1

Cost price of mixture = 1*100/140 = 5/7

= > – (5/7) : – (2/7)

= > 5 : 2

Direction (6-10) :

Total expenses of 4 departments in the year 2012 = 60 lakhs

Total expenses of finance department in the year 2012

= > 60*(20/100) = 12 lakhs

Profit % = 20 %

Total income of finance department in the year 2012

= > Income = 12*(120/100)

= > Income = 14.4 lakhs

The total profit earned by marketing department in the year 2013

Expense of marketing in the year 2013 = 68*(25/100) = 17 lakhs

Income of marketing in the year 2013 = 17*(115/100) = 19.55 lakhs

Profit = 2.55 lakhs

Total expenses of R & D department in the year 2014 and 2015 together

= > 72*(26/100) + 75*(20/100)

= > 18.72 + 15 = 33.72 lakhs

Required difference = 33.72 â€“ 2.55 = 31.17 lakhs = 3117000

The total expenses of agriculture in all the given years together

= > 60*(28/100) + 68*(30/100) + 72*(18/100) + 75*(30/100)

= > 16.8 + 20.4 + 12.96 + 22.5

= > 72.66 lakhs

Required average = 72.66/4 = 18.165 lakhs = 1816500

The profit earned by marketing department the year 2014 = 4.5 lakhs

Expense of marketing department the year 2014 = 72*(25/100) = 18 lakhs

Profit % of marketing department the year 2014 = (4.5/18)*100 = 25 %

The profit earned by R & D department the year 2015 = 3 lakhs

Expense of R & D department the year 2015 = 75*(20/100) = 15 lakhs

Profit % of R & D department the year 2015 = (3/15)*100 = 20 %

Required % = (25/20)*100 = 125 %

The total expenses of marketing and agriculture department in the year 2012

= > 60*(50/100) = 30 lakhs

The total expenses of agriculture department in the year 2015

= > 75*(30/100) = 22.5 lakhs

Required ratio = 30 : 22.5 = 300 : 225 = 4 : 3
