**Answers :**

**Direction (1-5) :**

**1) Answer: b)**

**From I and II:**

Area of rectangle = length x breadth

=> 378 = length x 18

=> Length = 378/18

=> Length = 21 cm

Radius of the base of the cone = 21 cm

Height = 4/3 x 21 = 28 cm

Volume of cone = 1/3Ï€r^{2}h

= 1/3 x 22/7 x 21 x 21 x 28

= 12936 cm^{3}

**From II and III:**

Area of square = (side)^{2}

=> 441 = (side)^{2}

=> Side = âˆš441

=> Side = 21 cm

Radius of the base of the cone = 21 cm

Height = 4/3 x 21 = 28 cm

Volume of cone = 1/3Ï€r^{2}h

= 1/3 x 22/7 x 21 x 21 x 28

= 12936 cm^{3}

**Hence, Either I and II or II and III sufficient.**

**2) Answer: a)**

**From I and II:**

Let, the present ages of Arohi and Nikita be 4x years and 5x years respectively.

Kamini = 5x + 4

(4x + 4)/(5x + 4 + 4) = 5/7

=> (4x + 4)/(5x + 8) = 5/7

=> 28x + 28 = 25x + 40

=> 28x â€“ 25x = 40 â€“ 28

=> 3x = 12

=> x = 4

Present age of Arohi = 4x = 4 x 4 = 16 years

Age of Arohi before six years = 16 â€“ 6 = 10 years

**From I and III:**

Kamini = Nikita + 4

Nikita + Kamini = 40

=> Nikita + Nikita + 4 = 44

=> 2 x Nikita = 44 â€“ 4

=> Nikita = 40/2

=> Nikita = 20 years

Present age of Arohi = 4/5 x 20 = 16 years

Age of Arohi before six years = 16 â€“ 6 = 10 years

**Hence, Either I and II or I and III are sufficient.**

**3) Answer: c)**

**From I:**

1/A + 1/B + 1/C = 1/8

1/A = 2/D

**From II:**

1/A + 1/D = 1/10

**From III:**

1/B + 1/D = 1/12

**From I, II and III:**

1/A + 1/B + 1/C = 1/8 —– (i)

1/A = 2/D —— (ii)

1/A + 1/D = 1/10 —- (iii)

1/B + 1/D = 1/12 —- (iv)

From (ii) and (iii)

2/D + 1/D = 1/10

=> 3/D = 1/10

=> 1/D = 1/30

From (ii)

1/A = 2 x 1/30

=> 1/A = 1/15

From (iv)

1/B + 1/30 = 1/12

=> 1/B = 1/12 â€“ 1/30

=> 1/B = (5 â€“ 2)/60

=> 1/B = 3/60

=> 1/B = 1/20

From (i)

1/15 + 1/20 + 1/C = 1/8

=> 1/C = 1/8 â€“ 1/15 â€“ 1/20

=> 1/C = (15 â€“ 8 â€“ 6)/120

=> 1/C = 1/120

Hence, pipe C can fill the tank in 120 minutes.

**Hence, All statement I, II and III are sufficient.**

**4) Answer: c)**

**From I:**

We know that, for two years

CI â€“ SI = P x (r/100)^{2}

=> 384 = P x (8/100)^{2}

=> P = 384 x 100/8 x 100/8

=> P = Rs.60000

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

= (60000 x 12 x 8)/100

= Rs.57600

**From II:**

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

19200 = (P x 8 x 4)/100

=> P = 19200 x 100/32

=> P = Rs.60000

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

= (60000 x 12 x 8)/100

= Rs.57600

**From III:**

We know that

CI = P x (1 + r/100)^{t} â€“ P

=> 12600 = P x (1 + 10/100)^{2} â€“ P

=> 12600 = P x (1 + 1/10)^{2} â€“ P

=> 12600 = P x (11/10)^{2} â€“ P

=> 12600 = P x 121/100 â€“ P

=> 12600 = (121 â€“ 100)P/100

=> 12600 = 21P/100

=> P = 12600 x 100/21

=> P = Rs.60000

(or)

Compound interest for two years = 10 + 10 + (10*10)/100 = 21%

21% = > 12600

100% = > 12600 * (100/21)

Sum = 60000

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

= (60000 x 12 x 8)/100

= Rs.57600

**Hence, any one of the three statements is sufficient.**

**5) Answer: c)**

**From I: **

The bag contains four different coloured balls. It contains 3 green and 2 red balls.

**From II:**

The bag contains 5 blue and some yellow balls.

**From III:**

Probability of drawing one green ball from the bag is 1/6.

**From I, II and III:**

Green = 3

Red = 2

Blue = 5

Let, yellow = n

Total number of balls = 3 + 2 + 5 + n = (10 + n)

3/(10 + n) = 1/6

=> 18 = 10 + n

=> n = 18 â€“ 10

=> n = 8

Total number of balls = 10 + 8 = 18

Required probability = ^{5}c_{2}/^{18}c_{2}

= 10/153

**Hence, All I, II and III are sufficient.**

**Direction (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: b)**

Total number of female qualified candidates in the year 2016 = 520

Total qualified candidates in the year 2016 = 1500*(78/100) = 1170

Total number of male qualified candidates in the year 2016 = 1170 â€“ 520 = 650

Required % = (650/520)*100 = 125 %

**7) Answer: d)**

Total number of appeared candidates in the year 2017 = 1500*(135/100)

= 2025

Total number of qualified candidates in the year 2017 = 2025*(32/100)

= 648

**8) Answer: a)**

The ratio of number of appeared candidates to that of qualified candidates

= > 5: 4 (5x, 4x)

The ratio of female to male qualified candidates = 5: 3 (5y, 3y)

4x = 8y (i.e., 5y + 3y)

= > x = 2y

Total appeared candidates = 5x = 10y

Required % = (5y/10y)*100 = 50 %

**9) Answer: c) **

The number of female qualified candidates in the year 2015 = 620

The ratio of female to that of male qualified candidates in the year 2015 = 5: 4

5â€™s = 620

1â€™s = 124

Total number of qualified candidates in the year 2015 = 9â€™s = 1116

(62/100)*appeared candidates = 1116

Total number of appeared candidates in the year 2015 = 1116*(100/62) = 1800

**10) Answer: b)**

The ratio of total number of candidates appeared for the examination in the year 2014 to 2016 = 4: 3

Total number of candidates appeared for the examination in the year 2016 =>

3â€™s = 1500

1â€™s = 500

Total number of candidates appeared for the examination in the year 2014

= > 4â€™s = 2000

Total number of candidates qualified for the examination in the year 2014

= > 2000*(70/100) = 1400

The total number of male qualified candidates in the year 2013 = 360

3â€™s = 360

1â€™s = 120

Total number of female qualified candidates in the year 2013 = 5â€™s = 600

Required difference = 1400 â€“ 600 = 800
