ques 3

A no. that is divisible by both 50&40 is200

so 50 orange each for rs4 &40 Mangoes each for rs 5

10%he kept for auto left with him is 180

he bought 20mangoes ie.=100rs

left with 80rs

now 20oranges will cost 80 To him. . . .

Q2 100 increase by 30% = 130 then decreases by 20% = 104 HENCE ans = 4%

50Or=40M

5Or=4M

so 10%40M=4M so that means he can buy 36M

he bought 20M

so more he can buy 16M

16M = 20 Or

so ans 20Or

please post the detailed solution of this section

Dont you think the answer of 7th should be ‘B’.

Oops i misread

no, its correct

55 * 65 * 20 = 65 * 70 * x

x = 110/7

% = [(20 – 110/7)/20 ] * 100

Ans -> approx 21%

Can anyone explain question no. 4 ?

I took total no. of voters = 100

for P there are 40 voters and 15% went back, they went back promises so 6 left for Q,

for Q there are 60 voters and 25% went back, they went back promises so 15 left for P

for P there are 34 + 15 = 49

for Q there are 45 + 6 = 51

So, the difference is 2.

Question 4 can be solved by using options

Anybody please explain the answer of Question No. 8. as I am getting only one option i.e (B). But how it will (D)Any of these.

plz solve q.8 for me sum1?

Total increase in the price of sugar = (8 +2)=10

Now for first year,

price of sugar = 20 + 20*0.1= 22

For the second year,

New price of the sugar = 22

10% increase = 2.2′

Therefore the total price in 1996 will be 22+2.2=24.2(Ans)

#8

Ans (D) Correct

Since minimum required % so that C will pass is atleast 28%

Anything greater than that will do.

Assume total marks =100

Passing marks = 40

A marks = 36

B marks= 32.01

Now sum of A+B = 68.01

So for C to pass the exam,He can score 28.01 marks less

i.e 68.01 – 40

Therefore Minimum percentage will be 28%

and anything greater than that will also make C qualify.

anyone please explain question 5 .asap

can anyone explain que no. 5?

5.let x votes got and y did not get by party,

x+y=260000=A

x-y=z win by z votes in previous election

party did not get 1.25y vote this time and got A-1.25y votes

1.25y-(A-1.25y)=2z lost by twice that it had won

y=(4x+2A)/9

x=7A/13

x=140000

#2 use effective percentage formula

When total income is Rs. 4000, a man earns x% on first Rs.2000 and y% on Rs.2000.

2000x/100 + 2000y/100 = 700

When total income is Rs. 5000, a man earns x% on first Rs.2000 and y% on Rs.3000.

2000/100 + 3000y/100 = 900

The equations can be simplified to

x + y = 35 and 2x + 3y = 90

Solving these two equations simultaneously, x = 15%.
