**Answers :**

**1) Answer: A**

The age of A, 5 years ago and the age of B, 7 years hence is in the ratio = 5: 6

Present age of A and B = 5x + 5, 6x – 7

D = B + 2 = 6x – 7 + 2 = 6x – 5

C = D – 7 = 6x – 5 – 7 = 6x – 12

The average present age of A, B, C and D = 24 years

5x + 5 + 6x – 7 + 6x – 5 + 6x – 12 = 24 * 4

23x – 19 = 96

23x = 115

x = 115/23 = 5

The present age of D = 6x – 5 = 25 years

**2) Answer: B**

Let the total time taken by both of them to fill the tank be x,

(x – 8)/24 + x/36 = 1

(3x – 24 + 2x)/72 = 1

5x – 24 = 72

5x = 96

x = 96/5 = 19 (1/5) min = 19 min 12 secs

**3) Answer: A**

Relative speed = (50 + 70) * (5/18) = 100/3 m/s

We have to find the time taken by slower train to cross the driver of the faster one. They didn’t mean to cross full faster train. They told only to cross the driver. So,

The distance covered = The length of slower train = 400 m

Required time = 400/(100/3) = 12 sec

**4) Answer: E**

M + W = 240 –> (1)

(60/100) * M + (12/100) * W = 240 * (2/5)

60M + 12W = 9600

5M + W = 800 —> (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

M = 140 liters, W = 100 liters

Required ratio = 140: 100 = 7: 5

**5) Answer: A**

The share of A, B and C,

= > [20000 * 12] : [B * 9] : [C * 6] = 16 : 15 : 12

= > 240000 : 9B : 6C = 16 : 15 : 12

16’s = 240000

1’s = 15000

9B = 225000

B = 25000

6C = 180000

C = 30000

Required difference = 30000 – 25000 = Rs. 5000

**6) Answer: C**

Let the salary be x,

Given,

x * (30/100) – x * (70/100) * (40/100) * (3/5) = 5280

(30x/100) – (84x/500) = 5280

66x = 5280 * 500

x = (5280 * 500) / 66 = Rs. 40000

**7) Answer: A**

Distance = time * speed

Distance to be covered after 9 am = 460 – 60 = 400

Required time = 400 / (60 + 40) = 4 h

The cars meet at 9 am + 4 = 1 pm

**(Or)**

**8) Answer: A**

Let the total employees be 100 and wages per head = Rs. 100

Total wages = 100 * 100 = Rs. 10000

New total wages = 100 * (125/100) * 100 * (70/100) = 8750

% decrease = (1250 / 10000) * 100 = 12.5 %

**9) Answer: C**

Sabitha’s 1 hour work = (60/12) = 5 pages

(Sabitha + Veena)’s 1 hour work

= > (360/30) = 12 pages

Veena’s 1 hour work = 12 – 5 = 7 pages

Veena can copy 420 pages in,

= > (420 / 7) = 60 hours

**10) Answer: C**

SI = PNR / 100

19200 = (P * 6 * 8) / 100

P = (19200 * 100) / 48 = Rs. 40000

Compound interest:

40000 * (5/100) = 2000

42000 * (5/100) = 2100

44100 * (5/100) = 2205

46305 * (5/100) = 2315.25

CI = 2000 + 2100 + 2205 + 2315.25 = Rs. 8620.25
