8). Answer c

The total number of oil imports in 2016 for all the given countries

= > 30.4 + 19.5 + 21.2 + 16.9 + 6.7

= > 94.7 million tones

The total number of oil imports in 2017 for all the given countries

= > 32.6 + 21.7 + 23.9 + 17.1 + 10.6

Directions (Q. 11-15):

11). Answer d

90 + (280/4) – 151 = ∛x

90 + 70 – 151 = ∛x

9 = ∛x

X = 93 = 729

12). Answer c

182 ÷ 32 × 90 ÷ 5 =? – (552/4)

[(18*18)/(3*3)]*(90/5) = x – (552/4)

648 + 138 = x

X = 786 = 790

13). Answer e

80 % of 150 + 60 % of 50 = x

(80/100)*150 + (60/100)*50 = x

X = 120 + 30

X = 150

14). Answer a

√625 × 18 ÷ 15 =? – (17)2

25*(18/15) = x – 289

30 + 289 = x

X = 319 = 320

Direction: (16-20)                                                             

Number of products produced by company B= 700*130/100= 910

Company A:

Number of keyboards produced by company A= 700*20/100= 140

Number of monitors produced by company A= 700/4= 175

Number of mouse produced by company A= 23*700/100= 161

Number of cameras produced by company A= 700- (140+175+161) = 224

Company B:

Monitors= 480-175= 305

Mouse= 40*910/100= 364

Camera= 10*910/100= 91

Keyboard= 910-(305+364+91) = 150

Defective mouse produced by both the companies= 20*525/100= 105

Defective keyboard produced by company A= 140*40/100= 56

16). Answer b

Total cost of keyboard produced by company A= 450*140= Rs. 63000

Cost price of 56 keyboard= 56*450= Rs 25200

Loss incurred by selling defective keyboard= (450*10/100)*56= Rs 45*56= Rs. 2520

Cost price of remaining keyboard= 63000-25200= Rs. 37800

Selling price of remaining keyboard should be= 37800 + 2520= Rs. 40320

17). Answer c

Keyboard produced by company A= 140

Monitor produced by company B= 305

Difference in production= 305-140= 165

Required percentage= (165/305)*100 = 54%

18). Answer e

Revenue generated by company A by selling mouse

= 240*161*120/100

=Rs. 46368

Revenue generated by company B by selling mouse

= 300*364*120/100

= Rs. 131040

Required difference= 131040 – 46368= Rs. 84672

19). Answer b

Total defective mouse produced= 105

Defective mouse produced by company B= 105*(80/100) = 84

20). Answer a

Let the cost of keyboard produced by company B be x

Markup price= x*120/100 = 6x/5

Selling price= 6x/5 * 90/100 = 27x/25

Profit= 27x/25 – x = 2x/25

So,

2x/25= 2400

x= 2400*25/2= Rs. 30000

Total keyboard produced by company B = 150

Cost price of each keyboard = 30000/150= Rs. 200

Directions (Q. 21-25):

21). Answer c

Quantity I:

Total age of 28 students = 28*15 = 420

Total age of 28 students + 1 teacher = 29*16 = 464

The age of the teacher = 464 – 420 = 44 years

(Or)

Shortcut:

N       Average

28      15

29      16

The age of the teacher = (28 + 16) or (29 + 15) = 44 years

Quantity II:

5 years ago, the ratio of age of A and B = 4: 1(4x, x)

According to the question,

4x – x = 30

3x = 30

X = 10

The present age of A = 4x + 5 = 45 years

Quantity II > Quantity I

22). Answer a

Quantity I:

The share of A and B

= > 24000: 30000

= > 4: 5

9’s = 72000

1’s = 8000

The share of A = 4’s = Rs. 32000

Quantity II:

Let the initial investment of Q be x,

According to the question,

(12000/x) = (3/4)

X = Rs. 16000

Quantity I > Quantity II

23). Answer c

Quantity I:

The ratio of speed of two trains = 3: 5 (3x, 5x)

The speed of second train = 350/7 = 50 km/hr

5x = 50

X = 10

The speed of first train = 3x = 30 km/hr

Quantity II:

The speed of the train = 150/3 = 50 m/s = 50*(18/5) = 180 km/hr

Quantity II > Quantity I

24). Answer c

Quantity I:

The difference between the simple interest and compound interest for 2 years,

Diff = Sum*(r/100)2

121.50 = Sum*(9/100)2

(121.50*100*100)/81 = Sum

Sum = Rs. 15000

Quantity II:

S.I = Pnr/100

5400 = (P*5*6)/100

(5400*100)/30 = P

Principle = Rs. 18000

Quantity II > Quantity I

25). Answer a

Quantity I:

Let the distance be x,

According to the question,

T = D/S

(x/2)/15 + (x/2)/18 = 11

x/30 + x/36 = 11

66x/(30*36) = 11

X = 180 km

The distance covered by him is 180 km

Quantity II:

Let the train length be x,

14.4 = (x + x)/[(40 + 35)*(5/18)]

14.4 = (2x*18)/(75*5)

(14.4*75*5)/36 = x

X = 150 m

Quantity I > Quantity II

26). Answer: d

Total work= 24*12 = 288 work

6 days work= 24*6 = 144 work

Remaining work= 288 – 144 = 144 work

Required days = 144/18 = 8 days

27). Answer: a

The ratio of the 50p, 25p, 10p coins be 6x, 4x and 3x

6x*(50/100) + 4x*(25/100) + 3x*(10/100) = 258

6x/2 + 4x/4 + 3x/10 = 258

(60x + 20x + 6x) /20 = 258

x = 60

Hence the numbers of coins are,

50p = 6 × 60 = 360

25p = 4 × 60 = 240

10p = 3 × 60 = 180

The answer is, (360, 240, 180)

28). Answer: c

Volume of cylinder = πr2h

The ratio of volume of two cylinders

= > [(22/7)*(5x)2 *(2y)] : [(22/7)*(6x)2 * (5y)]

= > 5: 18

29). Answer: b

7 years ago, the ratio of age of P and Q = 4 : 5(4x, 5x)

The present age of P = The age of Q, 7 years ago

4x + 7 = 5x

5x – 4x = 7

X = 7

The present age of P and Q = 4x + 7, 5x + 7 = 35, 42

Required sum = 35 + 42 + 10 = 87 years

30). Answer: c

The share of A, B and C

= > [7500*7 + 8000*5]: [8200*7 + 9000*5]: [9400*7]

= > 92500: 102400: 65800

= > 925: 1024: 658

Total profit = Rs. 36498

2607’s = 36498

1’s = (36498/2607) = 14

The share of C = 658*14 = Rs. 9212

(4y+3) (2y-5) =0

Y= -3/4, 5/2 = -0.75, 2.5

Can’t be determined

32). Answer: e

I. 63x2 -150x -57 =0

63x2 +21x -171x-57 =0

21x(3x+1)-57(3x+1)=0

(21x-57)(3x+1) =0

X=57/21, -1/3 = 2.71, -0.33

II. 3y2– 8y +4 =0

3y2– 6y-2y +4 =0

3y(y-2)-2 (y-2)=0

(3y-2) (y-2) =0

Y=2/3, 2 = 0.66, 2

Can’t be determined

33). Answer: a

I. 3x2 – 19x + 28 = 0

3x2 – 12x – 7x + 28 = 0

3x (x – 4) – 7 (x – 4) = 0

(x – 4) (3x – 7) = 0

x = 4, 7/3

II. (256)1/4 y = – (216)1/3

(44)1/4 y = – (63)1/3 ; 4y = -6

Y = -(6/4) = -1.5

x>y

34). Answer: a

I. 4/√x + 8/√x = √x

12/√x = √x

12= x

II. y2 = 75/2/ √y

Y2 × y1/2 = 75/2

Y2+(1/2) = 75/2

Y5/2 = 75/2

Y=7

x>y

35). Answer: a

I. 6x2 -49x +99 =0

6x2 -27x-22x +99 =0

3x(2x-9)-11(2x-9) =0

(3x-11)(2x-9) =0

X= 11/3, 9/2

II. 5y2 +17y+ 14=0

5y2 +10y+7y+ 14=0

5y(y+2)+7 (y+2) =0

(5y+7)(y+2) =0

Y= -7/5, -2

X>y
