Directions (1-5) :

Total number of balls = 330

Total number of balls in A = Total number of balls in B

Total number of balls in C = 5a

Number of balls in A = 5a * 60/100 = 3a

5a + 3a + 3a = 330

a = 30

Total number of balls in A = 3 * 30 = 90

Total number of balls in B = 90

Total number of balls in C = 5 * 30 = 150

Ratio of the number of red to blue balls in A = 100:150 = 2:3

Number of blue balls in A = 3/5 * 90 = 54

Number of red balls in A = 2/5 * 90 = 36

Total number of red balls = x

Number of red balls in B = 25/100 * x = x/4

Number of red balls in C = x/4 + 24

x/4 + x/4 + 24 + 36 = x

60 = x – x/2

60 = x/2

x = 120

Number of red balls in B = 120/4 = 30

Number of red balls in C = 30 + 24 = 54

Total number of blue balls = 330 – 120 = 210

Number of blue balls in C = y

Number of blue balls in B = y * 62.5/100

y + y * 62.5/100 + 54 = 210

y = 96

Number of blue balls in B = 96 * 62.5/100 = 60

Required ratio = 96:30

= 16:5

Requires percentage = 120/210 * 100 = 57%

Blue balls in D = 120/100 * 60 = 72

Red balls in D = 150/100 * 54 = 81

Total number of balls in D = 72 + 81 = 153

Required percentage = 96/210 * 100 = 46%

i) Number of blue balls in D = 180 – 76 = 104

Number of red balls in B = 30

This is not correct.

ii) Number of blue balls in C = 96, is correct

iii) Total number of balls in C = 150

Total number of balls in D = 120/100 * 150 = 180, this satisfied.

32 + 20 = 52

52 + 40 = 92

92 + 80 = 172

172 + 160 = 332

332 + 320 = 652

19 + (20 * 4) = 99

99 + (22 * 5) = 209

209 + (24 * 6) = 353

353 + (26 * 7) = 535

535 + (28 * 8) = 759

256 – 42 = 240

240 – 52 = 215

215 – 62 = 179

179 – 72 = 130

130 – 82 = 66

32 + 7 = 39

39 + 11 = 50

50 + 13 = 63

63 + 17 = 80

80 + 19 = 99

52 – 1 = 24

72 – 2 = 47

92 – 3 = 78

112 – 4 = 117

132 – 5 = 164

152 – 6 = 219
