In a class of 321 students 321 stationary items are distributed such that every student gets exactly 1 item. There are six different items that are distributed among these students namely Pen, Pencil, Erase, Scale, Note and Sharpener. The following line â€“ graph provides information about the number of students who received Pen, Pencil, Erase, Scale, Note and Sharpener.

The students exchanged the items among themselves and after they stopped further exchanging, it was noted that no student had the same item that he/she had earlier. Even after the exchange every students has exactly one item.

**Answers:**

**Directions (1 – 5):**

**1) Answer: d) **

From the above table, out of the students that originally had Pen, the number of students now having Scale is â€˜12 â€“ xâ€™. Maximum possible value of x is 11.

Therefore minimum possible value of 12 â€“ x

= 12 â€“ 11= 1

**2) Answer: c) **

From the above table, out of the students that originally had Pen, the number of students now having Scale is 8 = (12-x)

8 = 12 â€“x

= > x = 4

Â Out of the students that originally had Pen, the number of students now having Eraser is 4.

**3) Answer: b) **

Among the students that originally had Note, the number of students now having Scale is a

Â Among the students that originally had Note, the number of students now having Eraser is b

Â From the above table, among the students that originally had Note, the total number of students now having Eraser and Scale is

(68 – 35) = 33 = (a + b) — (1)

= > (b – a) = 1 —- (2)

Solve the above equation (1) and (2), we get

= > a = 34/2 = 17

= > b = 16

Required difference = 20 â€“ 17 = 3

**4) Answer: a) **

Among the students that originally had Sharpener, the number of students now having Eraser is 18

Â Among the students that originally had Sharpener, the number of students now having Pen be (18/2) = 9

Among the students that originally had Sharpener, the number of students now having Scale = 9 + 1 = 10

**5) Answer: b) **

From the above table,

Among the students that originally had Pencil, the number of students now having Note = among the students that originally had Pencil, the number of students now having Scale = 7

Among the students that originally had Pencil, the number of students now having Pen = 38 â€“ (3+7+9+7) = 38 â€“ 26 = 12 = z

Among the students that originally had Sharpener, the number of students now having pen = (21 – z)

= 21 â€“ 12 = 9

**Directions (6 – 10): **

**6) Answer: c)**

__For Great Grand Father__

Principal Amount=Rs.50,000

Simple interest = p*r*t/100

=50000*10*8/100

=Rs.40,000

Amount= Principal + Simple Interest

=50000 + 40000 => Rs 90,000

__For Grand Father__

Principal amount = Rs.90000

Scheme B compound interest =15%

Time=2 years

Â Amount on compound interest = p*(1+r/100)^{t}

=90000*(1+15/100)^{2}

=>119025

__For Sohan Father__

Amount received by Sohan Father = 119025 â€“ 25 = 119000

Amount invested in scheme A at compound interest for 3 years=119000*3/7

=>Rs.51000

Amount on compound interest =p*(1+r/100)^{t}

=51000*(1+10/100)^{3}

=>Rs.67881

Amount invested in scheme D at simple interest for 3 years=119000*4/7

=>Rs.68000

Amount on simple interest= P+ (P*r*t/100)

= 68000 + (68000*8*3/100) = 68000 + 16320

=>Rs.84320

Amount Sohan Received = 67881+ 84320=>Rs.152201

**7) Answer: d)**

**For Scheme A:**

Amount invested=25% of 80000= Rs.20000

Interest earned through simple interest = p*r*t/100

=20000*10*4/100 = Rs.8000

Interest earned through compound interest = = p*(1+r/100)^{t }– P

= 20000*(1+10/100)^{2 }â€“ 20000

Interest earned=24200 – 20000 = 4200

Difference of interest= 8000 – 4200 = Rs.3800

**For Scheme B:**

Amount invested = 30% of 80000 = Rs.24000

Interest earned through simple interest = p*r*t/100

= 24000*4*20/100 = Rs.19200

Interest earned through Compound Interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t }â€“ p

= 24000*(1+15/100)^{2} – 24000

= Rs.31740 – 24000 = Rs.7740

Difference of interest = 19200 – 7740 = Rs.11460

**For Scheme C:**

Amount invested = 15% of 80000 =Rs.12000

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=12000*12*4/100 = Rs. 5760

Interest earned through Compound Interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t} – p

=12000*(1 + 18/100)^{2} – 12000

=12000*59/50*59/50 – 12000

=16709 – 12000 = Rs.4709

Difference of interest= 5760 â€“ 4709 = Rs.1051

**For Scheme D: **

Amount invested = 17% of 80000

Amount invested = Rs.13600

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=13600*8*4/100 =Rs.4352

Interest earned through Compound Interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t} – p

= 13600*(1+5/100)^{2} – 13600

= 13600*105/100*105/100 – 13600

= 14994 – 13600 = Rs.1394

Difference of interest= 4352 – 1394= Rs.2958

**For Scheme E:**

Amount invested = 13% of 80000 = 10400

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=10400*11*4/100

=Rs.4576

Interest earned through Compound Interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t} – p

=10400* (1+ 9/100)^{2} â€“ 10400

= 10400*109/100*109/100 â€“ 10400

=12356 – 10400 = 1956

Difference of interest = 4576 – 1956 = > Rs.2620

Total difference = 2620 + 2958 + 1051 + 3800 + 11460

= Rs.21889

**8) Answer: a)**

Let the amount invested by Lalita is 5X

Let the amount invested by Babita is 3X

Amount received by Lalita = p*(1+r/100)^{t}

=5X*(1 +15/100)^{3}

=5X*115/100*115/100*115/100 = 7.60 X

Amount received by Babita =p*(1+r/100)^{t}

=3X*(1 +5/100)^{4}

=3X*105/100*105/100*105/100*105/100

=3.64X

Required percentage= 7.60X/3.64X * 100

= 208.79% = 209%

**9) Answer: b)**

**Quantity I:**

**For Scheme B**

Amount invested = X*30% = Rs.0.3X

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

0.3X*20*3/100 = 0.18X

**For Scheme C**

Amount invested= x*15% = 0.15X

Interest earned through compound interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t} – p

= 0.15X*(1+18/100)^{2} â€“ 0.15X

= 0.208X – 0.15X = 0.058X

Difference = 0.18X – 0.058X = 0.122X

**Quantity II:**

**For Scheme A**

Amount invested=X*25% = Rs.0.25X

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=0.25X*10*2/100 = 0.05X

**For Scheme C**

Amount invested=X*15% = Rs.0.15X

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=0.15X*12*2/100 = 0.036X

Total interest = 0.05X+0.036X

=>0.086X

**Quantity I < Quantity II**

**10) Answer: a)**

Quantity I: Amount invested=10000

**For scheme A**

Amount invested=10000*25% = Rs.2500

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=2500*10*4/100 = 1000

**For Scheme B**

Amount invested=10000*30% = Rs.3000

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=3000*20*4/100 = 2400

**For Scheme C**

Amount invested=10000*15% = Rs.1500

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=1500*12*4/100 = 720

**For Scheme D**

Amount invested=10000*17% = Rs.1700

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=1700*8*4/100 = 544

**For Scheme E**

Amount invested=10000*13% = Rs.1300

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=1300*11*4/100 = 572

Highest interest is earned by scheme B

**(Or) **

Amount invested in scheme B is highest at the same time Rate of interest in scheme B is highest compare than other schemes.

Amount invested=10000*30% = Rs.3000

Interest earned through simple interest=p*r*t/100

=3000*20*4/100 = 2400

**Quantity I = 2400**

**Quantity II:**

Amount invested=10000*15% = Rs.1500

Interest earned through compound interest= p*(1+r/100)^{t}

=1500*(1+18/100)^{2}

=1500*118/100*118/100

=Rs.2088

**Quantity II = 2088**

**Hence Quantity I > Quantity II**
