1) 65 kg 
2) 60 kg 
3) 70 kg 
4) 64 kg 
5) 68 kg



1. 2; Required number of ways

= n + r – 1 Cr – 1
= 10 + 4 –1 C4–1
= 13C3
= 13! / 3! 10!
= (13 * 12 * 11)/ (3*2)
= 286

2. 1;
When 7 girls sit together, regarding them as one group
(7 boys + 1 group of girls) = 8 objects.
Required probability = 8! * 7!/14!
= 1/429

3. 5;
If we begin with boy, then 7 boys can sit in 7 odd places in 7! ways and 7 girls in 7 even places in 7! ways, Therefore total ways = 7! × 7!. Similarly, if we begin with girls then 7! × 7!

Required probability = 2 * 7! * 7!/ 14!
= 1/1716

4. 5
1/2 * Diagonal^2 = 160*80
D = sqroot(2*160*80) = 160m

5. 3
Distance travelled by first train in 4 h = 80 × 4 = 320 km
Relative speed = (120 – 80) = 40 km/hr
Let x be the time taken by the second train to overtake
the first train.
Then, 40 = 320/x
x = 8h

Distance from A = 120 * 8 = 960km

6. 2; (8 × 12) men = (10 × 15) women = (18 × 10) children
16 men = 25 women = 30 children
Now, 8M + 25W + 30C = 8M + 16M + 16M = 40 men
8 men’s 1 day work = 1/12

40 men's 1 day work = 1/12 * 40/8 = 5/12
40 men's 2 day work = 5/12 * 2 = 5/6
Remaining Work = 1 - 5/6 = 1/6

Remaining work will be completed by 40 men in 2/5 days.
To complete in one day man required = 40 * 2/5 = 16 men

7. 4
Interest charge on (36000 – 12000 = 24000)
= (24000 * 18 * 6)/(100 * 12) = 2160

The total amount paid for T.V
= 12000 + 24000 + 2160 = Rs. 38,160

8. 1;
12 notebooks in a day, then in two weeks (i.e. 14 days)
= 14 × 12 = 168 notebook
Commission earned = 65 × 168 × 5/100 = Rs. 1546

8 pen stands in a day, then in two weeks (i.e. 14 days)
= 8 × 14 = 112 pen stands
Commission earned = 112 × 90 × 15/100 = Rs. 1512
Total commission earned = 546 + 1512 = Rs. 2058

9. 1; The ratio of profit = 12 : 8 = 3 : 2
Total Profit = 1860 (100/30)(3+2/3-2)
= 1860 * 100/30 * 5 = Rs. 31000

10. 2
The quantity sold at 25% profit
Where, N = total quantity, P = % gain on whole
x = part sold at x% profit
y = part sold at y% profit
= (p-x/y-x)N
= (18-12)/(25-12) * 130
6/13 * 130 = 60kg
