Directions (1-5):

The total number of horror books sold by shop A

= > 3000 * (85/100) – 3000 * (7/15) * (90/100)

= > 2550 – 1260 = 1290

The total number of comic books sold by shop D

= > 8000 * (95/100)  –  8000 * (11/20) * (75/100)

= > 7600 – 3300 = 4300

Required difference = 4300 – 1290 = 3010

The total number of comic books in shop A, B and C together

= > 3000 * (7/15) + 4500 * (4/9) + 6000 * (5/12)

= > 1400 + 2000 + 2500 = 5900

The total number of horror books in shop C, D and E together

= > 6000 * (7/12) + 8000 * (9/20) + 7500 * (7/15)

= > 3500 + 3600 + 3500 = 10600

Required ratio = 5900 : 10600 = 59 : 106

The average number of books sold by all the given shops together

= > [3000 * (85/100) + 4500 * (80/100) + 6000 * (90/100) + 8000 * (95/100) + 7500 * (75/100)] / 5

= > [2550 + 3600 + 5400 + 7600 + 5625] / 5

= > 24775 / 5 = 4955

The total number of horror books sold by shop B

= > 4500 * (80/100) – 4500 * (4/9) * (80/100)

= > 3600 – 1600 = 2000

The percentage of horror books sold by shop B

= > (2000 / 4500) * 100

The total number of horror books sold by shop C

= > 6000 * (90/100) – 6000 * (5/12) * (85/100)

= > 5400 – 2125 = 3275

The percentage of horror books sold by shop C

= > (3275 / 6000) * 100

Required ratio = [(2000 / 4500) * 100] : [(3275 / 6000) * 100]

= > 320 : 393

Total number of comic books sold by shop A

= > 3000 * (7/15) * (90/100) = 1260

The total number of horror books sold by shop E

= > 7500 * (75/100) – 7500 * (8/15) * (95/100)

= > 5625 – 3800 = 1825

Required % = [(1825 – 1260) / 1825] * 100 = 30.95 % = 31 % less

Directions (6-10):

Here work equal. So,

(8 m + 10 w) * 10 = (6 m + 10 w) * 12

40 m + 50 w = 36 m + 60 w

4 m = 10 w

m = (10 / 4) * w = (5 / 2) * w

8 m + 10 w = 8 * (5 / 2) w + 10 w = 20 w + 10 w = 30 w

10 m + 15 w = 10 * (5 / 2) w + 15 w = 25 w + 15 w = 40 w 30 * 10 = 40 * x

x = (300 / 40) = 7 ½ days

Radius of the circular plot = 21 m

Area of the circular path = 5390 / 5 = 1078

Area of the path = π * (r + x)2 – πr2       (Here x is the width of the path)

= > (22/7) * [(21 + x)2 – 212]

= > (22/7) * [441 + 42x + x2 – 441]

= > (22/7) * [42x + x2]

(22/7) * [42x + x2] = 1078

42x + x2 = 1078 * (7 / 22)

42x + x2 = 343

x2 + 42x – 343 = 0

(x – 7) (x + 49) = 0

x = 7 meter

Let the total number of subjects be x,

= > (75x + 15 + 20) / x = 80

= > 75x + 35 = 80x

= > 5x = 35

= > x = 7

Total number of subjects = 7

Let the sum of money be x,

x * [(1 + (5 / 100))3 – 1] = 6305

x * [(105 / 100)3 – 1] = 6305

x * [(21 / 20)3 – 1] = 6305

x * [(9261 / 8000) – 1] = 6305

x * [1261 / 8000] = 6305

x = 6305 * (8000 / 1261) = Rs. 40000

Simple interest = (40000 * 5 * 3) / 100 = Rs. 6000

6 years ago, the ratio of age of Arun and Bhargavi = 5: 6 (5x, 6x)

Present age of Arun and Bhargavi = 5x + 6, 6x + 6

Present age of Rahul = (1/6) * (6x + 6) + 14 = x + 1 + 14 = x + 15

x + 15 = 20

x = 5

The present age of Bhargavi = 6x + 6 = 36

Required ratio = 36 : 20 = 9 : 5
