**Answers :**

**1) Answer: d)**

1/Q = 2/R ——— (i)

1/Q + 1/R = 1/10 ———— (ii)

From (i) and (ii),

=> 2/R + 1/R = 1/10

=> 3/R = 1/10

=> 1/R = 1/30

From (i)

1/Q = 2/30

=> 1/Q = 1/15

And

1/P = 1/20

Part of the work completed in 2 days = (1/20 + 1/15) + 1/30 = (3 + 4 + 2)/60 = 9/60 = 3/20

Part of the work completed in (2 x 6 = 12 days) = 3/20 x 6 = 18/20

Remaining work = 1 – 18/20 = (20 – 18)/20 = 2/20 = 1/10

Let, time taken by P and Q to complete remaining part of the work = n days

n x (1/20 + 1/15) = 1/10

=> n x (3 + 4)/60 = 1/10

=> n = 60/7 x 1/10

=> n = 6/7 days

Required number of days = 12 + 6/7 = 12(6/7) days

**(Or) **

LCM of 20, 15 and 30 = 60

Total work = 60 units

P = 60/20 = 3 units per day

Q = 60/15 = 4 units per day

R = 60/30 = 2 units per day

Work completed in 2 days = 3 + 4 + 2 = 9 units

Part of the work completed in (2 x 6 = 12 days) = 9 * 6 = 54 units

Remaining = 60 – 54 = 6 units

Remaining work completed by P and Q = 6/7

Total number of days = 12 + 6/7 = 12 (6/7) days

**2) Answer: d)**

Perimeter of square field= 24 * 4 = 96 m

Perimeter of the rectangular field= 96 * 3 = 288 m

Let the length of the rectangular field be x,

288 = 2 * (x+48)

288 – 96 = 2x

x = 96 m

Area of the rectangular field = 96 * 48 = 4608 Sq. m

**3) Answer: a)**

Let the number of days required be x,

M1 * D1 * H1 = M2 * D2 * H2

33 * 15 * 8= 44 * 6 * x

x = (33 * 15 * 8) / (44 * 6)

x = 15 days

**4) Answer: b)**

The difference between simple interest and compound interest on certain time for 2 years is,

= > Diff = Sum * (r/100)^{2}

= > Diff = 35000 * (12/100)^{2}

= > Diff = 35000 * (3/25)^{2}

= > Diff = 35000 * (9/625) = Rs. 504

**5) Answer: c)**

Incomes and Rajesh and Mani are in the ratio = 8 : 9 (8x, 9x)

According to the question,

(8x – 14000) / (9x – 16000) = 33/37

= > 296x – 518000 = 297x – 528000

= > 10000 = x

Income of Rajesh = Rs. 80000

**6) Answer: c)**

Let us take the speed of the boat in still water be x km/hr,

120 / (x+8) = (1/3) * (120 / (x – 8))

3x – 24 = x + 8

2x = 32

x = 16

Speed of the boat in still water = 16 km/hr

**7) Answer: d)**

Let the cost price be x,

Selling price = (120/100) * x = 6x/5

Marked price * (75/100) = 6x/5

MP = 8x/5

The profit earned was Rs. 100 less than the discount,

According to the question,

= > (8x/5 – 6x/5) – (6x/5 – x) = 100

= > 2x/5 – x/5 = 100

= > x/5 = 100

Cost price = Rs. 500

Selling price = 500 * (120/100) = Rs. 600

**8) Answer: a)**

Total Balls = 18

Required Probability = 4C3 / 18C3 = 1/204

**9) Answer: d)**

5 years ago, Agila: Hema = 3: 2 (3x, 2x)

Present ages of Agila and Hema = 3x + 5, 2x + 5

Three years ago, Agila’s age is equal to Hema’s age after 2 years,

= > 3x + 2 = 2x + 7

= > x = 5

Present age of Agila = 3x + 5 = 20 years

**10) Answer: c)**

The share of A, B and C,

= > (24000 * 1 + 20000 * 1 + 35000 * 1): (32000 * 1 + 40000 * 2): (48000 * 2 + 40000 * 1)

= > 79000 : 112000 : 136000

= > 79 : 112 : 136

Total profit = Rs. 114450

327’s = 114450

1’s = 350

The share of A = 79’s = Rs. 27650
