**Answers:**

**Directions (1-5):**

**1) Answer: e)**

Let, red = x

White = y

Blue = z

**From I:**

The bag contains only three different coloured balls viz. red, white and blue.

**From II:**

Probability of drawing one red ball from the bag is Â¼.

**From III:**

Probability of drawing one blue ball from the bag is 1/3.

**From I, II and III:**

x/(x + y + z) = Â¼

=> 4x = x + y + z

=> 3x â€“ y â€“ z = 0

And

z/(x + y + z) = 1/3

=> 3z = x + y + z

=> x + y â€“ 2z = 0

Since, there are three variables, we need three equations to solve the question.

**Hence, even I, II and III together are not sufficient.**

**2) Answer: d)**

**From I and II:**

We know that

Amount on CI = P x (1 + r/100)^{t}

=> 44100 = P x (1 + 5/100)^{2}

=> 44100 = P x 105/100 x 105/100

=> P = 44100 x 100/105 x 100/105

=> P = Rs.40000

And

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

8000 = (25000 x r x 4)/100

=> 8000 = 1000 x r

=> r = 8%

We know that, for two years

CI â€“ SI = P x (r/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (8/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (2/25)^{2}

= 40000 x 4/625

= Rs.256

**From II and III:**

We know that

SI = (P x r x t)/100

8000 = (25000 x r x 4)/100

=> 8000 = 1000 x r

=> r = 8%

And

Amount on SI = (P x r x t)/100 + P

=> 59200 = (P x 8 x 6)100 + P

=> 59200 = 48P/100 + P

=> 59200 = (48P + 100P)/100

=> 59200 = 148P/100

=> P = 592000 x 100/148

=> P = Rs.40000

We know that, for two years

CI â€“ SI = P x (r/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (8/100)^{2}

= 40000 x (2/25)^{2}

= 40000 x 4/625

= Rs.256

**Hence, Only II and either I or III are sufficient.**

**3) Answer: c)**

4^{2x}Ã· 4^{12 }x 64 Ã· 4^{y} x 16 = 1024

=>4^{2x}Ã· 4^{12 }x 4^{3}Ã· 4^{y} x 4^{2} = 4^{5}

=> 4^{(2x â€“ 12 + 3 â€“ y + 2)} = 4^{5}

=> 2x â€“ 12 + 3 â€“ y + 2 = 5

=> 2x â€“ y = 5 + 7

=> 2x â€“ y = 12 —— (i)

**From I:**

x> 0 and y > 0

**From II:**

x â€“ y = 5 ——- (ii)

Subtracting (ii) from (i)

2x â€“ y â€“ x + y = 12 â€“ 5

=> x = 7

From (ii)

7 â€“ y = 5

=> y = 2

Now, 2xy = 2 x 7 x 5 = 70

**From III:**

x + y = 9 ——- (iii)

Adding (i) and (iii)

2x â€“ y + x + y = 12 + 9

=> 3x = 21

=> x = 7

From (iii)

7 + y = 9

=> y = 2

Now, 2xy = 2 x 7 x 5 = 70

**Hence, either II or III is sufficient.**

**4) Answer: e)**

**From I:**

x> 0, y > 0

**From II:**

x > y

**From III:**

2x â€“ y = 6

**From I, II and III:**

x> 0, y > 0

x > y

2x â€“ y = 6

By hit and trial

x = 4, y = 2

1/(4 â€“ 2 x 2) = 1/0 = (cannot defined)

But, since we have one equation, value of x and y cannot be determined and hence, required answer cannot be determined.

**Hence, Even I, II and III together are not sufficient.**

**5) Answer: a)**

**From I:**

Urmila, Tina and Jaya invested in the ratio 8:4:5. After one year Tina doubled her investment.

**From II:**

At the end of three years, they earned a total profit of Rs.80000.

**From III:**

After two years, Jaya doubled her investment.

**From I, II and III:**

Let, amounts invested by Urmila, Tina and Jaya be Rs.8k, Rs.4k and Rs.5k respectively.

Ratio of share in the profit:

Urmila : Tina : Jaya = (8k x 3) : (4k + 8k x 2) : (5k x 2 : 10k)

= 24k : 20k : 20k

= 6 : 5 : 5

Share of Urmila in the profit = 6/(6 + 5 + 5) x 80000

= 6/16 x 80000

= Rs.30000

**Hence, all I, II and III together are sufficient.**

**Directions (6-10):**

**6) Answer: c)**

The total number of mails didnâ€™t read by the user A

= > 725*(32/100) + 88

= > 232 + 88 = 320

The total number of mails didnâ€™t read by the user C

= > 650*(28/100) + 76

= > 182 + 76 = 258

Required difference = 320 – 258 = 62

**7) Answer: d)**

The total number of spam mails received by the user B = 38 % of total mails didnâ€™t read by the user

152 = (38/100)* total mails didnâ€™t read by the user

Total mails didnâ€™t read by the user B = 15200/38 = 400

Total mails read by the user B = 800 â€“ 400 = 400

The percentage of mails read by the user B

= > (400/800)*100 = 50 %

**8) Answer: b)**

The percentage of mails read by the user B = 66 %

The total number of mails read by all the given user

= > 725*(68/100) + 800*(66/100) + 650*(72/100) + 540*(55/100)

= > 493 + 528 + 468 + 297 = 1786

**9) Answer: a)**

The total number of mails didnâ€™t read by the user C

= > 650*(28/100) + 76= 258

The total number of spam mails received by the user D = 104

Required ratio = 258: 104 = 129: 52

**10) Answer: c)**

The total number of mails received in Inbox of user D = 540

The total number of spam mails received by user A and C together

= > 88 + 76 = 164

Required % = (540/164)*100 = 330 %
