SI = P * N * R/100

Scheme A interest = 3x * 12 * 6/100 = 216x/100

Scheme B interest = 2x * 15 * 4/100 = 120x/100

216x/100 – 120x/100 = 864

96x = 86400

x = 900

Total investment = 5x = 5 * 900 = 4500

Milk in 80 litres = 11/20 * 80 = 44 litres

Water in 80 litres = 9/20 * 80 = 36 litres

Milk in 40 litres = 11/20 * 40 = 22 litres

Water in 40 litres = 9/20 * 40 = 18 litres

(44 – 22 + 8)/(36 – 18 + x) = 1/1

30 = 18 + x

x = 12 litres

Profit ratio of A, B and C = x * 24: (x + 500) * 24:2x * 12

= 2x: (2x + 1000): 2x

1000/(6x + 1000) = 1000/5200

6x + 1000 = 5200

6x = 4200

x = 700

A + R = 50 ——(1)

(A + 5)/(S + 5) = 5/6

5S + 25 = 6A + 30

5S – 6A = 5 ——–(2)

(S – 5)/(R – 5) = 4/5

4R – 20 = 5S – 25

5S – 4R = 5 ——-(3)

(2) – (3)

4R – 6A = 0

4R = 6A

2R = 3A

2A + 3A = 100

5A = 100

A = 20

5S – 6 * 20 = 5

5S = 125

S = 25 years

Circumference of the circle = 2 * 22/7 * r

2 * 22/7 * r = 22

Radius of the circle = 3.5 cm

Radius of the cylinder = 2 * 3.5 = 7 cm

Height of the cylinder = 7 + 8 = 15 cm

Volume of the cylinder = 22/7 * r * r * h

= 22/7 * 7 * 7 * 15

= 2310 cm3

Required ratio = (2 + (2 * 50/100):(3 – (3 * 20/100))

= 3:12/5

=5:4

1/2 = 6C1 / (9 + x)C1

9 + x = 12

x = 3

Total balls in the bag = 6 + 3 + 3 = 12 balls

Direction (8-10):

Total number of fruits from A = 10/1 * 5 = 50

Total number of fruits from B = 9/1 * 5 = 45

Number of apple from A = 3/5 * 50 = 30

Number of rotten apple from A = 20/100 * 30 = 6

Number of good apple from A = 30 – 6 = 24

Number of banana from A = 2/5 * 50 = 20

Number of rotten banana from A = 5

Number of good banana from A = 20 – 5 = 15

Number of apple from B = 5/9 * 45 = 25

Number of rotten apple from B = 5

Number of good apple from B = 25 – 5 = 20

Number of banana from B = 4/9 * 45 = 20

Number of rotten banana from B = 40/100 * 20 = 8

Number of good banana from B = 20 – 8 = 12

Required Average = (24 + 20)/2 = 22

Rotten fruits = 6 + 5 + 5 + 8 = 24
