Solution:
1).Net salary = Basic salary + total allowance โ total deduction
Total deduction = PF deduction (10% of basic salary) + Other deductions
= 10% of 21800 + 4720
= 2180 + 4720 = Rs. 6900
Net salary = 21800 + 28600 โ 6900 = Rs. 43500
Answer: b)
2).Let the basic salary of Q be Rs. x.
Total allowance of Q is Rs. (x + 3000).
Net salary = Basic salary + total allowance โ total deduction
Or, 25850 = x + x + 3000 โ 4350
Or, 2x = 25850 + 4350 โ 3000
Or, 2x = 27200
x = 27200 / 2 = Rs. 13600
Total allowance of Q = 13600 + 3000 = Rs. 16600
Answer: d)
3).Let the PF deduction and other deductions of S be Rs. 7x and 13x respectively. Then, 10% of 11200 = PF deduction
Or, PF deduction = Rs. 1120
Other deductions of S = (13 / 7) ร 1120 = Rs. 2080
Answer: b)
4).Basic salary of S is Rs. 11200
Basic salary of R is Rs. 10400.
Reqd % = [(11200 โ 10400) / 10400] ร 100
= (800 / 10400) ร 100 = (800 /104)% = (100 / 13)% = 7(9 / 13)%
Answer: e)
5).Total deduction of T = PF deduction + 4000
Let the basic salary of T be Rs. x
Then, 5700 = 10% of x + 4000
Or, x / 10 = 1700
x = Rs. 17000
Net salary = 17000 + 21600 โ 5700 = 38600 โ 5700 = Rs. 32900
Answer: e)
6).Required ratio
X ร (160 / 100) = Z ร (155 / 100)
Or, X / Z = 31 / 32
X : Z = 31 : 32
Answer: e)
7).Let the expenditures be a and b respectively
Ratio = [a ร (45 / 100)] / [b ร (30 / 100)]
It does not give exact figure of amount
Hence cannot be determined
Answer: a)
8).Income = [Expenditure ร (100 + profit%)] / 100
Let the expenditure of X and Z be k each
Ratio = (Income of X in 2011) / (Income of Z in 2011)
= [k ร (160 / 100)] / [k ร (165 / 100)] = 32 : 33
Answer: b)
9).Let the expenditure be Rs. k lakh
Then, k ร (25 / 100) = Rs. 2.5 lakh
k = Rs. 10 lakh
Answer: c)
10).For company X
% profit = 45%
45 = [(3 โ E) / E] ร 100
E = 60 / 29
For company Z, % profit = 35%
35 = [(3 โ E) / E] ร 100
E = 60 / 27
Hence ratio = 27 : 29
Answer: a)
11).Average = (60 + 65 + 30 + 45 + 55 + 35) / 6 = 48(1 / 3)%
Answer: c)
