Direction (1-5) :

Other expenses of Ganesh = 100000*(20/100) = Rs. 20000

Expenditure on rent by Ganesh

= > 100000 – (20000 + 14000 + 20000) = Rs. 46000

Rent expenditure of Parthi = 60000 – 46000 = Rs. 14000

Monthly Income of Parthi = 14000*(100/25) = Rs. 56000

Savings of Parthi = 56000 – (14000 + 15000 + 12000) = Rs. 15000

Savings of Pranav= 14000*(5/4) = Rs. 17500

Let the monthly income of Pranav be x,

According to the question,

17500 + 30000 + 16000 + 50/100 of x = x

63500 + 5x/10 = x

63500 = x – 5x/10

63500 = 5x/10

x= 63500*(10/5)

x= Rs. 127000

Rent paid by Pranav = 127000*(50/100) = Rs. 63500

Expenditure on food by Pranav after increase = 30000*(110/100) = Rs. 33000

New savings of Pranav = 127000 – (33000 + 63500 + 16000) = Rs. 14500

Savings of Priyanka= 14000*(80/100) = Rs. 11200

Rent expenditure of Priyanka = 90000*(15/100) = Rs. 13500

Total expenditure of Priyanka for food and other expenses,

= > 90000 – (11200 + 13500) = Rs. 65300

Expenditure on food by Priyanka = 65300*(7/10) = Rs. 45710

Required percentage = (45710/90000)*100 = 51 %

Total expenditure on food by Vasu = 5000*(100/40) = Rs. 12500

Rent paid by Vasu = 70000*(20/100) = Rs. 14000

Total expenditure on other expenses and savings of Vasu

= > 70000 – (14000 + 12500) = Rs. 43500

Other expenses = (150/100)*savings

The ratio of other expenses to that of savings of Vasu = 3 : 2

5’s = 43500

1’s = 8700

The savings of Vasu = 8700*2 = Rs, 17400

Required ratio = 14000 : 17400= 70 : 87

Expenditure on food of Preethi = 20 %

The sum of other expenses, rent and savings of Preethi = Rs. 60000

80 % of total income of Preethi = 60000

Preethi’s income = 60000*(100/80) = Rs. 75000

Expenditure on food of Preethi = 75000*(20/100) = Rs. 15000

Expenditure on other expenses of Preethi = Rs. 12500

Required percentage = [(15000 – 12500)/12500]*100 = 20 % more

Direction (6-10) :

Income of company A in 2010 = 60000*(145/100) = Rs. 87000

Income of company B in 2013 = 150000*(160/100) = Rs. 240000

Required sum = 87000 + 240000 = Rs. 327000

Let income of company A and B be Rs. x in 2014,

Income (A) = exp (A)*(175/100)

Exp (A) = income (A)*(100/175) = x*(100/175)

Income (B) = exp (B)*(135/100)

Exp (B) = income (B)*(100/135) = x*(100/135)

Exp (A) : Exp (B) = (x*100/175) : (x*100/135) = 135 : 175 = 27 : 35

Total percent profit earned by company A over all the years

= > 45 + 30 + 50 + 80 + 75 + 25 = 305

Total percent profit earned by company B over all the years

= > 65 + 40 + 55 + 60 + 35 + 45 = 300

Required percentage = (305/300)*100 = 101.67 % = 102 %

Income of company A in 2012 = 75000*(150/100) = Rs. 112500

Income of company B in 2012 = 120000*(155/100) = Rs. 186000

Required percentage = [(186000 – 112500)/112500]*100

= > [73500/112500]*100 = 65.33% = 65 %

We cannot say profit earned by company is more or less in any year, because only profit % is given and without knowing the expenditure/Income, profit cannot be determined.
