(a) 10

(b) 20

(c) 15

(d) 30  a – 3, a – 1, a + 1, a+3

4a/4 = 51 ⟹ a = 51

51 + 1 = 52

CP = 1230 + 180 = 1410

SP = 1128

Loss = 282

So,

% L = 282/1410 × 100

loss = 20%

clearly,

1.25 C1 = 1875

And,

0.75C2 = 1875

⟹ C1 = 1500 and C2 = 2500

So, C1 + C2 = 4000

And S1 + S2 = 3750

Loss = 250

Expenditure = Cost × Consumption

Exp = 60 × x

Exp = 70 × (x – a)

60x = 70(x – a)

Or 70a = 10x

Or a/x = 1/7

∴ a/x  % = 1/7 × 100 = 14.28%

% Increase = 20 + 30 + 6= 56%

distance travelled by them in 10 sec

= (45 + 63) × 10/3600

= 108/360 = 12/40 = 0.3 km

Note: This is the sum of distance travelled by them in last 10 seconds Let distance b/wn  each boy be 1m.

So, 14m travelled in = 7 sec

So, 21m travelled in = 7/14 × 21 = 10.5 sec

∴ 3.5 sec more required.
