**Answers:**

**Directions (1-5):**

**1) Answer: C**

Investment of Anu, Bharathi and Divya = (4 * 3): (4 * 4): (5 * 3)

= 12: 16: 15

Profit share of Anu, Bharathi and Divya = (12 * 13): (16 * 10): (16 * 15)

= 39: 40: 60

Average share of Bharathi and Divya = (100/2)/139 * 8340

= 3000

**2) Answer: C**

Quantity of vessel B = x

Quantity of vessel A = 37.5 – x

CP of the mixture = x * 51 + (37.5 – x) * 66

= 2475 – 15x

SP of the mixture = 37.5 * 66 = 2475

Profit = (2475 – (2475 + 15x))/(2475 – 15x) * 100 = 10

1500x = 24750 – 150x

x = 15

CP of the mixture = 2475 – 15 * 15 = 2250

New SP of the mixture = 37.5 * 51 = 1912.5

Required loss percentage = (2250 – 1912.5)/2250 * 100

= 15% loss

**3) Answer: C**

Let us take the cost price of article A and B be a

Article A = a * (100 + x)/100 * (100 + x)/100

Article B = a * (120/100 * 125/100) = 1.5a

a * (1 + x/100)^{2} = 150/100 * 1.5a

(1 + x/100) = 15/10

100 + x = 150

x = 50%

**4) Answer: A**

SI = (P * N * R)/100

CI = P * (1 + R/100)^{n} – P

Interest received by B = (x * 20 * 2)/100

Interest received by C = ((27000 – x) * (80/3) * 3)/100

40x/100 = (27000 – x) * 80/100

x = 54000 – 2x

x = 18000

Interest received from B = (18000 * 20 * 2)/100 = 7200

Interest received from C = 7200

CI = 27000 * (1 + 10/100)^{3} – 27000

CI = 8937

Profit earned by A = (7200 * 2) – 8937 = 5463

**5) Answer: D**

Distance = x

Initial Speed of car = y

((x/y) – x/(y + 20)) = 3

20x/y^{2} + 20y = 3

x/(y – 20) – x/y = 4.5

20x/(y^{2} – 20y) = 4.5

3y^{2} + 60y = 4.5y^{2} – 90y

3y + 60 = 4.5y – 90

1.5y = 150

y = 100 kmph

20x/(100 * 100 + 20 * 100) = 3

x = 1800 km

**Directions (6-10):**

**6) Answer: B**

Let, speed of the boat in still water = x km/h

And speed of the stream = y km/h

**From I and II:**

x = y x (100 + 250)/100

=> x = 350y/100

=> x = 7y/2 —- (i)

2x + 3y = 40 —– (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

=> 14y/2 + 3y = 40

=> (14y + 6y)/2 = 40

=> 20y = 80

=> y = 4 Km/h

From (i)

x = 7/2 x 4 = 14 km/h

Required time = 90/(14 + 4) + 80/(14 – 4)

= 90/18 + 80/10

= 5 + 8

= 13 hours

**From I and III:**

x = y x (100 + 250)/100

=> x = 350y/100

=> x = 7y/2 —- (i)

x – y = 10 —— (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

=> 7y/2 – y = 10

=> (7y – 2y)/2 = 10

=> 5y = 20

=> y = 4 km/h

From (i)

x = 7/2 x 4 = 14 km/h

Required time = 90/(14 + 4) + 80/(14 – 4)

= 90/18 + 80/10

= 5 + 8

= 13 hours

**From II and III:**

2x + 3y = 40 —– (i)

x – y = 10 ——- (ii)

Equation (i) – 2 x equation (ii)

2x + 3y – 2x + 2y = 40 – 20

=> 5y = 20

=> y = 4 km/h

From (ii)

x – 4 = 10

=> x = 14 Km/h

Required time = 90/(14 + 4) + 80/(14 – 4)

= 90/18 + 80/10

= 5 + 8

= 13 hours

**Hence, ****any two of the three statements are sufficient.**

**7) Answer: E**

**From I:**

(Rupali – 3): (Shyam – 3) = 8: 9

**From II:**

Arjun: Deepak = 15: 13

**From III:**

Shyam: Deepak = 10: 13

**From I, II and III:**

(Rupali – 3): (Shyam – 3) = 8: 9

Arjun: Deepak = 15: 13

Shyam: Deepak = 10: 13

**Hence, Even I, II and III together are not sufficient.**

**8) Answer: B**

**From I and II:**

x = y – 2 —- (i)

2x = y + 1 —— (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

2(y – 2) = y + 1

=> 2y – 4 = y + 1

=> 2y – y = 4 + 1

=> y = 5

From (i)

x = 5 – 2 = 3

Now, (54872)^{1/x} + (1024)^{1/y} =∛54872 + (1024)^{(1/5)} = 38 + 4 = 42

**From II and III:**

2x = y + 1 ——- (i)

x + y = 8

=> x = 8 – y —— (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

2(8 – y) = y + 1

=> 16 – 2y = y + 1

=> 3y = 15

=> y = 5

From (i)

2x = 5 + 1

=> 2x = 6

=> x = 3

Now, (54872)^{1/x} + (1024)^{1/y} =∛54872 + (1024)^{(1/5)} = 38 + 4 = 42

**From I and III:**

x = y – 2 ——– (i)

x + y = 8 ——- (ii)

From (i) and (ii)

y – 2 + y = 8

=> 2y = 8 + 2

=> 2y = 10

=> y = 5

From (i)

x = 5 – 2 = 3

Now, (54872)^{1/x} + (1024)^{1/y} =∛54872 + (1024)^{(1/5)} = 38 + 4 = 42

**Hence, any two of the three statements are sufficient.**

**9) Answer: D**

a^{12}÷ a^{x} x a^{4}÷ a^{2y }x a^{-z} = a^{2}

=> a^{(12 – x + 4 – 2y – z)} = a^{2}

=> a^{(16 – x – 2y – z) }= a^{2}

=> 16 – x – 2y – z = 2

=> x + 2y + z = 14 —— (i)

**From I:**

x = 3y

**From II:**

x > z > y

**From III:**

x – z = 2

**From I and III:**

x = 3y

=> y = x/3 —– (ii)

x – z = 2

=> z = x – 2 —– (iii)

From (i), (ii) and (iii)

x + 2x/3 + x – 2 = 14

=> (3x + 2x + 3x – 6)/3 = 14

=> 8x – 6 = 42

=> 8x = 48

=> x = 6

From (ii)

y = 6/3 = 2

From (iii)

z = 6 – 2 = 4

Now, (x + y + z) = 6 + 2 + 4 = 12

**Hence, only I and III are required.**

**10) Answer: A**

2a + 3b + 5c = m —– (i)

**From I:**

m – 2b = 27

**From II:**

a + c = 6

**From III:**

m – a = 31

**From I, II and III:**

m – 2b = 27

=> m = 2b + 27—– (ii)

a + c = 6

=> c = 6 – a ——– (iii)

m – a = 31

=> m = a + 31——- (iv)

From (ii) and (iv)

2b + 27 = a + 31

=> a = 2b – 4

=> b = (a + 4)/2 —–(v)

From (i), (iii), (iv) and (v), we have

2a + 3 x (a + 4)/2 + 5(6 – a) = a + 31

=> (4a + 3a + 12 + 60 – 10a)/2 = a + 31

=> -3a + 72 = 2a + 62

=>5a = 10

=> a = 2

From (v)

b = (2 + 4)/2 = 3

From (iv)

m = 2 + 31 = 33

Now,

m – a + b = 33 – 2 + 3 = 34

**Hence, all I, II and III together are sufficient.**
