3 years ago, the ratio of ages of Ganesh and Magathi = 3: 4 (3x, 4x)

Magathi’s age after 4 years = 35 years

Magathi’s present age = 31 years

4’s = 28

1’s = 7

Ganesh’s present age = 3x + 3 = 24 years

According to the question,

31 + 24 = 7 + Mano’s present age

55 – 7 = Mano’s present age

Mano’s present age = 48 years

The ratio of investment of Rajesh and Meena = 3: 1

The ratio of investment of Meena and Chandru = 4: 5

The ratio of investment of Rajesh, Meena and Chandru = 12: 4: 5

21’s = 136500

1’s = 6500

The share of Rajesh = 12’s = 6500*12 = Rs. 78000

Let the sum of money be x,

x*[(1 + (10/100))2 – 1] = 6300

x*[(11/10)2 – 1] = 6300

x*[(121/100) – 1] = 6300

x*(21/100) = 6300

x = 6300*(100/21) = Rs. 30000

Simple interest = (30000*10*2)/100 = Rs. 6000

The efficiency of A and B = 150: 100 = 3: 2

The ratio of total number of days taken by A and B = 2: 3 (2x, 3x)

(1/2x) + (1/3x) = 1/12

5x/(2x*3x) = 1/12

x = 10

The time taken by A and B = 2x, 3x = 20 and 30 days

Total units = 60 (LCM of 20, 30)

A = > 3 units

B = > 2 units

A’s one day work = 3 units

B’s one day work = 2 units

Work done in 2 days = 3 + 2 = 5 units

Work done in 24 days = 5*12 = 60 units

Work will be completed in 24 days

Let the speed of train B be x,

Length of Train A = 180 m

Length of Train B = 360 m

T = D/S

{(180 + 360) / [(180/20) + x]} = 15

540/(9 + x) = 15

36 = 9 + x

x = 36 – 9 = 27 m/sec

The total number of students studying in college M

= > 515 + 400 + 365 = 1280

The total number of students studying in college P

= > 300 + 560 + 250 = 1110

Required difference = 1280 – 1110 = 170

Total number of Arts students studying in all the given colleges together

= > 515 + 650 + 440 + 300 = 1905

Total number of Commerce students studying in all the given colleges together

= > 365 + 330 + 600 + 250 = 1545

Required % = [(1905 – 1545)/1545]*100 = 23 % more

The total science students from college M and N together

= > 400 + 500 = 900

The total arts students from the college O and P together

= > 440 + 300 = 740

Required ratio = 900: 740 = 45: 37

Total number of students studying in college M and O together

= > 515 + 400 + 365 + 440 + 300 + 600 = 2620

Total number of students studying in college N and P together

= > 650 + 500 + 330 + 300 + 560 + 250 = 2590

Required % = (2620/2590)*100 = 101 % = 100 %

The average number of students studying in commerce department from all the given colleges together

= > (400 + 500 + 300 + 560)/4

= > 1760/4 = 440
