**Answers :**

**Directions (1-10) :**

**1) Answer: A**

**From quantity I,**

Ratio of length of rectangle to side of the square = 5: 8

Ratio of the breadth of the rectangle to side of the square = 1: 2

Ratio of the length and breadth of the rectangle and side of the square = 5: 4: 8

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 * (l + b) = 2 * (9x) = 18x

Perimeter of the square = 4 * a = 4 * 8x = 32x

32x – 18x = 56

x = 4 cm

Area of the rectangle = l * b

= (5 * 4) * (4 * 4)

= 320 cm^{2}

**From quantity II,**

Radius of the sphere = 4.9 cm

Surface area of the square = 4 * 22/7 * r * r

= 4 * 22/7 * 4.9 * 4.9 = 301.84 cm^{2}

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**2) Answer: A**

**From quantity I,**

CP * (X + 100)/100 = 1200

CP * (X + 130)/100 = 1500

120000/(X + 100) = 150000/(X + 130)

4X + 520 = 5X + 500

X = 20 %

**From quantity II,**

2800 * (100 – X)/100 = 2400

100 – X = 600/7

X = 100/7

X = 14.28 %

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**3) Answer: A**

**From Quantity I:**

Milk = 5/9 * 72 = 40

Water = 4/9 * 72 = 32

Added water quantity = 88 – 72 = 16

Total quantity of water = 16 + 32 = 48

Required percentage = [(48 – 40)/48] * 100 = 16.67 %

**From Quantity II:**

Quantity II = 15 %

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**4) Answer: A**

**From quantity I, **

Ratio of the red, blue and yellow balls = 4: 3: 5

(5x – 18)/(3x + 10) = 3/7

9x + 30 = 35x – 126

26x = 156

X = 6

Total number of balls = 12x = 12 * 6 = 72

**From quantity II,**

Income = 80000

Expenditure = 32000

Savings = 80000 – 32000 = 48000

Required percentage = 48000/80000 * 100 = 60 %

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**5) Answer: A**

**Quantity I:**

**Income Expenditure Savings**

A 4x y 4x – y

B 5x 4x – y 5x – (4x – y) = x + y

Required ratio = (4x + 5x): (4x – y + x + y)

= > 9x : 5x = 9 : 5

= > (9/5) = 1.8

**Quantity II:**

Investment ratio * Period ratio = Ratio of profit

Ratio of investment = Ratio of profit / Period ratio

= > (5 / 7) : (4 / 8)

= > 10 : 7

= > (10/7) = 1.428

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**6) Answer: E**

**From quantity I,**

Difference = P * R * R / 100 * 100

27 = 1200 * R * R / 100 * 100

Rate of interest = 15%

**From quantity II,**

CA = P * (1 + R/100)^{n}

2645 = 2000 * (1 + R/100)^{2 }

529/400 = (1 + R/100)^{2}

23/20 = (100 + R)/100

115 = 100 + R

R=15%

**Quantity I = Quantity II**

**7) Answer: A**

**From Quantity I,**

Speed of car = 210/14 = 15 kmph

Speed of bike = 4/3 * 15 = 20 kmph

Distance covered by bike = 20 * 3 = 60 km

**From Quantity II,**

Distance = (20 * 25 * 15/60)/5

= 25 km

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**8) Answer: A**

**From quantity I,**

Speed of train A = 600/36 * 18/5

= 60 kmph

(Speed of train B + 60) * 5/18 = 900/36

Speed of train B = 30 kmph

**From quantity II,**

Length of train = x

Speed of train = y

x = y * 5/18 * 18

x = 5y

(x + 125) = y * 5/18 * 36

x + 125 = 10y

5y + 125 = 10y

y = 25 kmph

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**9) Answer: C**

**From quantity I,**

A = 1/20

B = 3/2 * 20 = 30 hours

B + C = 1/15

C = 1/15 – 1/30

C = 1/30

A + B + C = 1/20 + 1/30 + 1/30

= (3 + 2 + 2)/60

= 7/60

Required time = 60/7 hours

**From quantity II,**

Required time = 1/30 + 1/15

= 3/30 = 1/10

= 10 hours

**Quantity I < Quantity II**

**10) Answer: E**

**From quantity I,**

C’s present age = 22 – 4 = 18 years

9x + 18 = 15 * 3

9x = 27

x = 3 years

B’s present age = 5 * 3 = 15 years

**From quantity II,**

A + B = 45

Sum of the ages of A and B after 21 years = 45 + 21 + 21 = 87 years

B’s age after 21 years = 12/29 * 87 = 36 years

B’s present age = 36 – 21 = 15 years

**Quantity I = Quantity II**
