Question Figure

The day of Aarushโs birthday (27th April) = Thursday

The number of days from 28th April to 28th September

= 3 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 31 + 28 = 154

Odd days = 154/7

The day of Mitulโs birthday

= Thursday + 0 = Thursday

Weight of four boxes = 20 kg, 30 kg, 40 kg and 60 kg

Total weight of four boxes

= 20 + 30 + 40 + 60 = 150 kg

Possible combination,

150 โ 20 = 130 kg

150 โ 30 = 120 kg

150 โ 40 = 110 kg

150 โ 60 = 90 kg

According to the options, combination of 140 kg cannot be formed.

? = 25 +10 รท240 ร16

On changing the signs,

? = 25 ร 10 โ 240 รท 16

On using BODMAS,

? = 25 ร 10 โ 15

? = 250 โ 15 = 235
