Directions (1-5) :

Number of pen sold by company N in 2013

= > 400 – 600*(43/100)

= > 400 – 258 = 142 lakhs

Number of pen sold company N in 2014 = 142 + 200 = 342 lakhs

Number of pen produced by company N in 2014

= > 342*100/40 = 855 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company M in 2015

= > 480*15/100= 72 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company M in 2016

= > 72*17/8 = 153 lakhs

Required percentage = (153/680)*100 = 22.5 %

Number of pens sold in 2013

= > x*15/100 + (x+200)*40/100 = 630

= > 15x/100 + 40x/100 + 80 = 630

= > (15x+ 40x)/100 = 630 – 80

= > 55x = 550*100

= > x = 1000 lakhs

Number of pens sold in 2015 = (1000+200)*(40/100) = 480 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company N in 2016 = 900*(30/100) = 270 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company N in 2013 = 270*(110/100) = 297 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company N in 2014 = 297*8/9 = 264 lakhs

Number of pens produced by company N in 2014

= > 264*(100/40) = 660 lakhs

Total pens sold by company M in 2012, 2013 and 2014 together

= > 200*3= 600 lakhs

Number of pens sold by company M in 2014

= > 600 – [(60/100)*450 + (43/100)*600]

= > 600 – 270 – 258 = 72 lakhs

Number of pens produced by company M in 2014 = 72*(100/20) = 360 lakhs

Required percentage = (360/450)*100 = 80%

Directions (6-10) :

Anu + Bala + Kavin + Dany = 84

From I,

Anu + Bala + Dany = 25 * 3 = 75

Kavin = 84 – 75 = 9 years

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

Kavin + Dany = 30 * 2 = 60

From I and II,

Anu + Bala + Dany = 25 * 3 = 75

Kavin = 84 – 75 = 9 years

Kavin + Dany = 30 * 2 = 60

Dany = 60 – 9 = 51 years

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

Hence, both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.

From I,

4y + 3x = 18

=> y = (18 – 3x)/4

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

y – x = 2y – (3 + x)

=> y – x = 2y – 3- x

=> y = 3

This statement is sufficient to answer the question.

Hence, statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Speed of the boat in still water = ½ * (Downstream speed + Upstream speed)

From I,

Upstream speed = 3 kmph

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

Downstream speed = 5 kmph

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.

From I and II,

Speed in still water = (3 + 5)/2 = 4 kmph

Hence, both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

From I,

C.P = S.P – Profit = 40000

Profit % = (S.P – C.P)/C.P * 100

= 40000/40000 * 100 = 100%

This statement is sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

C.P = S.P/2 = 80000/2 = 40000

Profit % = 40000/40000 * 100 = 100%

This statement is sufficient to answer the question.

Hence, statement I alone or statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

A + B + C + D = 240

From I,

A = 2/3 * (B + C + D) = 2/3 * (240 – A)

3A = 2 * 240 – 2A

5A = 480

A = 96

This statement is sufficient to answer the question.

From II,

This statement is not sufficient to answer the question.
