From I and II,

A= 24 days

B = 48 days

A and B’s one day work = 1/24 + 1/48 = 1/16

A and B together can complete the work in 16 days.

From III,

¾ of work = 12

Whole work of A and B = 12*(4/3) = 16 days

From I and II,

Total ages of students without class teacher = 14*18= 252 years

Total ages including class teacher = 20*15 = 300 years

The age of the class teacher = 300 – 252 = 48 years

Let the length of the platform be x,

From I and III,

Train length/12 = 30

Length of the train =12*30= 360 m

From II,

20 = (360 + x)/30

600= 360 + x

X = 240m

All the statements together are sufficient

From statement I,

Let the maximum marks in the examination be x,

According to the question,

30 % of x + 20 = 40% of x – 15

30x/100 + 20 = 40x/100 – 15

35 = 10x/100

X = 35*(100/10)

X = 350

Minimum marks required to pass the examination

= > 30*(350/100) + 20 = 125

Only statement I is alone sufficient.

From statement I,

Diff = Sum*(r/100)2

r2 = (360*10000)/25000

r2 = 144

Rate of interest = 12%

From statement II,

Let the principal be x,

Amount = 2x

S.I = 2x – x = x

Time= 25/3 years

Rate of interest = (x*100*3)/(25*x)

R = 12 %

Total number of male Hindi newspaper readers in the month of August and November together

= > 36000*(1/2) + 66000*(2/3)

= > 18000 + 44000 = 62000

Total number of female English newspaper readers in the month of September and December together

= > 56000*(3/8) + 64000*(7/16)

= > 21000 + 28000 = 49000

Required % = (62000/49000)*100 = 126.53 % = 127 %

The total number of male Hindi newspaper readers of all the given months together

= > [36*(1/2) + 44*(6/11) + 52*(7/13) + 66*(2/3) + 56*(5/8)] thousand

= > [18 + 24 + 28 + 44 + 35] thousand

= > 149000

The total number of female English newspaper readers of all the given months together

= > [42*(4/7) + 56*(3/8) + 68*(6/17) + 70*(3/7) + 64*(7/16)] thousand

= > [24 + 21 + 24 + 30 + 28] thousand

= > 127000

Required ratio = 149000 : 127000 = 149 : 127

The total number of female Hindi newspaper readers of all the given months together

= > [36*(1/2) + 44*(5/11) + 52*(6/13) + 66*(1/3) + 56*(3/8)] thousand

= > [18 + 20 + 24 + 22 + 21] thousand

= > 105000

Required average = 105000/5 = 21000

The total English newspaper readers of all the given months

= > [42 + 56+ 68 + 70 + 64] thousand

= > 300000

The total Hindi newspaper readers of all the given months

= > [36 + 44 + 52 + 66 + 56] thousand

= > 254000

Required difference = 300000 – 254000 = 46000

Total number of female Hindi newspaper readers in the month of September and October together

= > [44*(5/11) + 52*(6/13)] thousand

= > [20 + 24] thousand

= > 44000

Total number of male English newspaper reader in the month of November and December together

= > [70*(4/7) + 64*(9/16)] thousand

= > [40 + 36] thousand = 76000
