d) d

e) e

Directions (1-10):

From Statement I,

Ponraj: Dhinesh= 3:2,

Ponraj: Dhinesh: Livinson=3:2:5/2

= 6:4:5

Then Share of Dhinesh= (4/15)*15000

=Rs 4000

From Statement II, We cannot find the share of Dhinesh.

Thus Statement I is sufficient to answer the question.

Let the efficiency of a man and a woman be x and y respectively.

From Statement I, we have

20x=16y

(x/y)= 16/20

= 4:5

From statement II we have,

30y= ½*(40x)

x/y=30:20

= 3:2

Thus Either Statement I or statement II is sufficient to answer the question.

Even though combining both statements, we cannot find the length of the train.

Thus Neither Statement I nor statement II is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement I:

Let the downstream and upstream speeds be x km/hr and y km/hr respectively.

From statement I,

4(x-y) =20

x-y = 5km/hr

Speed of the stream=(x-y)/2

= 5/2

= 2.5km/hr

From statement II,

(63/x)= 3

x= 21 km/hr

Thus Statement I is sufficient to answer the question.

From statement I,

Let the present age of Manohar be x.

Then present age of Kathir= (x+5)

From statement I and Statement II,

Prabhu’s present age= 2(x+5)

2(x+5)+x=2*26

2x+10+x= 52

3x+10=52

x=14

Thus Both Statements I and II are necessary to answer the question.

Let age of B is 9x and that of A is 7x. So
9x – (7x +4) = 2, x = 3
So sum will be = 27 + 21 = 48

Both the statements are necessary to answer the question

I) Suppose he moves 5km downstream in x hours
Then, downstream speed a= 5/x km/hr
Speed upstream speed b = 4/x km/hr
40 / (5 /x) + 40 / (4/x) = 18
8x + 10x = 18
x = 1
a = 5 km/hr, b = 4 km/hr
speed of boat = ½ (5 + 4 ) = 9/2 km/hr

II) Let upstream speed = x km/hr, downstream speed = y km/hr
So 48/x + 56/y = 12
And 54/x + 70/y = 14
Put 1/x = u, 1/y = v
So equations are 48u + 56v = 12 and 54u + 70v = 14
Solve the equations, u = 1/6, v = 1/14
So upstream speed = 6 km/hr, downstream speed = 14 km/hr
Speed of boat in still water = 1/2*(6+14)=10kmph

Either statement I alone or Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question

Average of 8 boys increased by 2, this means the total age of boys increased by 8*2 = 16 yrs
So sum of ages of two new boys = 21+23+16 = 60
Average of these = 60/2=30

Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question

K =(L+M)/2

2K = L+ M

2K –L =M — (1)
L =( K+M)/4

4L = K+M

4L – K = M —- (2)

Equate (1) and (2), we get

2K –L = 4L – K

3K = 5L

K/L = 5/3

Substitute the value in equation (1) we get, (10x-3x) = M

7x =M

Ratio of K, L and M = 5: 3: 7

Share of M = 7/15 *9750 = 4550

Both the statements are necessary together to answer the question

We know that,

Area of the triangle= ½* height * base

Hence Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.
