(a) Rs.  19,281

(b) Rs.  17,350

(c) Rs.  23,133

(d) Rs.  19,278

(b) 32 years

(c) 2 years

(a) 5

(b) 5.5

(c) 6

(d) 6.5

Clearly, we have to first find two numbers whose difference is 2 and of which the smaller one is a perfect square and the bigger one a perfect cube. Such numbers are 25 and 27. Thus, Nitin is now 26 years old. Since the next perfect cube after 27 is 64, So required time period = (64 – 26) years = 38 years.

Let the no. of one rupee, 50 paise and 25 paise coins be 2x, 3x and 4x respectively.

According to question,

2x+3x/2+4x/4 =Rs. 216

(8x+6x+4x)/4 =216

x = 48

Number of 50 paise coins = 48 × 3 = 144

Let B joined after x months.

Then, 4500 × 12: 3000 (12 – x) = 2: 1

Ratio of their investments

4500×12/(3000(12-x))=2/1 Share of Urmila in dividend = 2/6 x 57834  =  19278

Let the age of father and son be 15x years and x years respectively.

Now, according to the question, 15x+ x /2 = 16 or, x= 16×2/16 =2 years

Hence age of the son = 2 years

A’s share= 3/5×1000 =600

Marked price = Rs. 50

S.P. after discount = 80% of 50 = Rs. 40

If the CP of article be Rs. x, then 125 * x/100  = 40

x= Rs. 32
