1). A)Let the radius of cylinder A be 2x and that of cylinder B be 5x.
Now, height of cylinder A = 3y and height of cylinder B = y
Now, volume of cylinder A = ￗr2h
= (22/7)x (2x)2 x 3y = (22/7) x 4x2 x 3y
= (22/7) x l2 x2y
Volume of cylinder B = ￗr2h
=( 22/7)×(5x)2 × y = (22/7) x 25 x2y
Reqd ratio = [ (22/7) x l2 x2y] / [(22/7) x 25 x2y] = 12/25
= 12:25

2). A)Let Raja’s salary be Rs. x.
Raja gives 30% of his salary to his mother.
Raja gives[(x × 30)/100 = Rs. 3x/10] to his mother
Remaining salary of Raja = x – (3x /10) = Rs. 7x /10
Investments of Raja in insurance and PPF is 40% of the remaining salary.
Insurance + PPF = (7x x 40)/ (10×100) = 7x/25
Remaining salary of Raja = 7x/10 – 7x/25
= (35x —14x)/50 = 21x /50
Raja’s investment in insurance scheme
= (7x/25) × (4/7) = 4x/25
Now, according to the question,
3x/10 – 4x/7 = 8400
or, (15x-8x) / 50 =8400
or,  7x = 8400 x 50
x = (8400x 50)/7 =1200 x 50 = Rs. 60000

3). B)Suppose total work = 60 units (LCM of 10 and 15)
(A + B)’s one day’s work = 60/10
= 6 units
And (B + C)’s one day’s work = 60/15 = 4 unit
According to the question, C : A = 60 : 100
or, C :A = 3 : 5
C/A = 3/5
Or, A = 5C/3
Again, A +B = 6units  ..(i)
B+C = 4 units   …(ii)
Putting the value of A in equation (i), we get
[ 5C/3 + B = 6 unit ] – [B + C = 4 units]
= 5C/3 – C=2units
Or, 2C/3 = 2 units
C = 3 units
Then A = 5C/3 = 5×3 / 5 = 5 units
Now, total work is 60 units Then A alone can do the work in
(60 / 5 =) 12 days

4). B)Total number of balls = 7 + 5 = 12
Now, three halls are picked randomly
Then, the number of sample space n(S)
=12C3 =(10 ×11 ×12) / (1×2×3) = 220
The number of events
n(E) =7C2 x5C1 = [(6×7)/2] x 5
= 21 x 5 = 105
105 21 P(E) = n(E)/n(S)=105/220 = 21/24

5). D)Amount received from scheme A
= P+ [(Px2x11)/100] =( 100P+22P)/100 = 122P/100
= (P + 600) [1+ (20/100)]2
= (P + 600) (6/5)2
= (P + 600) (36/25)
= 36P/25 + (600×36)/25 = 36P/25 + 864
Now, according to the question,
36P/25 + 864 – 122P/100 = 1216
Or, 36P/25 – 122P/100 = 1216-864
Or, (144P-122P)/100 = 352
Or, 22P = 352×100
P = (352×100) / 22 = Rs. 1600

6). B)? = 619.002 – 134.99 ÷ 14.998 –(9.01) = 620 – 135 ÷ 15 – (9)2
= 620 – 90 = 530

7). E)? = 439.97 ÷ 15.02 + 208.08 ÷ 8.01 –16.01 = 450 ÷ 15 + 208 ÷ 8 – 16
= 30 + 26 – 16 =30 + 10 = 40

8). D)4?x √226 = 245.998 ÷ 8.001 + 929.99
or, 4? x √225 = 248 ÷ 8 + 930
or, 4? x 15 = 31 + 930 = 961
or 4? = 960/15 = 64 = 43
? = 3

9). E)?% of (140.06 x 7.99 — 679.92) = 330.01
= [?x(140×8-680)] / 100 = 330
or, ? x (1120 — 680) = 330 x 100
or, ? x 440 = 33000
? = 33000 / 440 = 75

10). E)? 40% of 859 + 86.01 ÷ 7.99
= (40 x 860) / 100  + 86 ÷ 8

= 344 + 11 = 355
