Question 1 of 10
1. Question
Abinav marks an item one-third more than the CP but he allows successive discount of x % and (x + 10) %. If the CP of an item is Rs. 900 and he losses 4 %, then find the value of â€˜xâ€™?
Correct
Answer: c)
SP = 900*(96/100) = 864
MP = 900*(4/3) = Rs. 1200
According to the question,
1200*[(100 â€“ x)/100]*[(90 â€“ x)/100] = 864
9000 â€“ 100x â€“ 90x + x^{2} = 7200
X^{2} â€“ 190x + 1800 = 0
(x â€“ 180) (x â€“ 10) = 0
= > x = 180, 10 (180 should be eliminated)
= > x = 10 %
Incorrect
Answer: c)
SP = 900*(96/100) = 864
MP = 900*(4/3) = Rs. 1200
According to the question,
1200*[(100 â€“ x)/100]*[(90 â€“ x)/100] = 864
9000 â€“ 100x â€“ 90x + x^{2} = 7200
X^{2} â€“ 190x + 1800 = 0
(x â€“ 180) (x â€“ 10) = 0
= > x = 180, 10 (180 should be eliminated)
= > x = 10 %
Question 2 of 10
2. Question
The price of Item A is 10 % more than that of Item B. How much percentage the price of Item B is less than that of Item A?

Answer: d)
Required % = [R/(100 + R)]*100, Here R = 10 %
= > (10/110)*100 = 9.09 %
Incorrect
Answer: d)
Required % = [R/(100 + R)]*100, Here R = 10 %
= > (10/110)*100 = 9.09 %
Question 3 of 10

The difference between the ages of Yuvaraj and Ajay, 4 years ago was 8 years. If the ratio of their ages 7 years hence is 5: 4, then find the present age of Yuvarajâ€™s mother who is 25 years older than Yuvaraj?
Correct
Answer: c)
4 years ago, Yuvaraj â€“ Ajay = 8
7 years hence, The ratio of Yuvaraj and Ajay = 5: 4 (5x, 4x)
Present age of Yuvaraj and Ajay = 5x â€“ 7, 4x â€“ 7
According to the question,
5x â€“ 4x = 8
x = 8
Present age of Yuvaraj = 5x â€“ 7 = 33
Present age of Yuvarajâ€™s mother = 33 + 25
= > 58 years
Incorrect
Answer: c)
4 years ago, Yuvaraj â€“ Ajay = 8
7 years hence, The ratio of Yuvaraj and Ajay = 5: 4 (5x, 4x)
Present age of Yuvaraj and Ajay = 5x â€“ 7, 4x â€“ 7
According to the question,
5x â€“ 4x = 8
x = 8
Present age of Yuvaraj = 5x â€“ 7 = 33
Present age of Yuvarajâ€™s mother = 33 + 25
= > 58 years
Question 5 of 10
5. Question
An article was sold at a discount of 25% and there was a profit of 10%. If the profit earned was Rs. 96 less than the discount offered, then find the selling price of the article?
Correct
Answer: d)
Let the cost price be x,
Selling price = (110/100)*x = 11x/10
Marked price*(75/100) = 11x/10
MP = 22x/15
The profit earned was Rs. 96 less than the discount,
According to the question,
= > (22x/15 â€“ 11x/10) â€“ (11x/10 â€“ x) = 96
= > 55x/150 â€“ x/10 = 96
= > 40x/150 = 96
= > x = 360
Cost price = Rs. 360
Selling price = 360*(110/100) = Rs. 396
Incorrect
Answer: d)
Let the cost price be x,
Selling price = (110/100)*x = 11x/10
Marked price*(75/100) = 11x/10
MP = 22x/15
The profit earned was Rs. 96 less than the discount,
According to the question,
= > (22x/15 â€“ 11x/10) â€“ (11x/10 â€“ x) = 96
= > 55x/150 â€“ x/10 = 96
= > 40x/150 = 96
= > x = 360
Cost price = Rs. 360
Selling price = 360*(110/100) = Rs. 396

Find the difference between the amount invested by company A in the month of October to that of the amount invested by company B in the month of September?
Correct
Directions (Q. 6 â€“ 10):
Company A:
The average amount invested in all the given months = 51*4 = 204 lakhs
The ratio of the amount invested by company A in the month of September to that of October = 5: 9
The amount invested by company A in the month of November

The amount invested by company A in the month of December = 80 lakhs
The amount invested by company A in the month of September, October, November = 204 â€“ 80 = 124 lakhs
124â€™s = 124
1â€™s = 1
September = 25 lakhs, October = 45 lakhs, November = 54 lakhs,
December = 80 lakhs
Company B:
The ratio of the amount invested by company B in the month of October to that of the amount invested by company A in the month of December = 1: 2
The amount invested by company B in the month of October

The amount invested by company B in the month of September
= > 40 â€“ 12 = 28 lakhs
The total amount invested by company B in all the given months together

Answers :
1) Answer: c)
SP = 900*(96/100) = 864
MP = 900*(4/3) = Rs. 1200
According to the question,

X^{2} â€“ 190x + 1800 = 0
(x â€“ 180) (x â€“ 10) = 0
= > x = 180, 10 (180 should be eliminated)
= > x = 10 %
2) Answer: d)
