1. (4) : 2Ï€R = 440

2 × 22/7 x R = 440

R = 70 m.

Inside radius = ( 70 – 7 ) m = 63 m

Area of the border = Ï€ [(70)^2 – (63)^2]m^2

= [22/7 x (70 + 63 ) x ( 70 – 63 ) ] m2 = 2926m^2

2. (2)

3. (1) : let B be closed after x min. then ,

Part filled by (A+B) in x min. +part filled by A in (18-x)min.=1

Therefore x*((1/24)+(1/32))+(18-x)*(1/24)=1

(7x/96) + ((18-x)/24)=1.

7x +4*(18-x)=96.

Hence, be must be closed after 8 min.

4. (1) : The first train has a start of 25 / 5 km and the second train gains ( 35 – 25 ) or 10 km per hour.

The second train will gain 25 x 5 km in (25 x5) / 10 or 12 ½ hours.

The required distance from Delhi = 12 ½ x 35 km = 437 ½ km

Shortcut : (try this )

Meeting point’s distance from starting point

= (S1 x S2 x Difference in time) / Difference in speed ( S1 and S2 are the speed )

5. (2) : (A+B+C)=1/6

A's one day work work= (A+B+C)-(B+C)= 1/6-1/12 =1/12

C's one day work work= (A+B+C)-(A+B)= 1/6-1/8= 1/24

(A+C)'s one day work= 1/12+1/24= 1/8

so the work will be completed in 8 days

6. (2) : (A's 1 day's work) : (B's 1 day's work) = 7 /4 : 1 = 7 : 4

Let A’s and B’s 1 days’ work be 7 x and 4 x respectively

then , 7x + 4x= 1/7 11x = 1/7 x = 1/77

A’s 1 days = (1) / (77) x 7 = 1/ 11

A alone can do this job = 11 days

8. (3) : We are given with length and area, so we can find the breadth.

as Length x Breadth = Area

=> 20 x Breadth = 680

=> Breadth = 34 feet

Area to be fenced = 2B + L = 2 x 34 + 20

= 88 feet

9. (2) : S. I = Rs. ((1200 ×10 ×1)/100) = Rs. 120

C. I. = Rs. = Rs. 123.

Difference = Rs. 3

10. (3) : Let the diagonals of the squares be 2x and 5x.

Then ratio of their areas will be

Area of square=(1/2) x Diagonal2

(1/2 ) x 2x2 : (1/2) x 5x2

4x2 :25x2 =4:25

10. (5) : Let B contribution is x.

(3500 x 12) /7x=2/3 =>14x=126000=>x=Rs9000
