(b) 45
(c) 50
(d) 60
(e) None of these

1. c;
(23000 – 20000) = 3000

2. d;
5500/23000 * 100 = 23.91 = 24%

3. a;
6000/3500 = 12/7 = 12 : 7

4. c;
9000/7500 * 100 = 120

5. b;

6. d;
(8500 + 7500)/2 = 16000/2 = 8000

7. b;
Let CP = 100
MP = 110% of 100 = 110
SP = 90% of 110 = 99
Loss% = (100-99)/100 *100 = 1% Loss

8. c;
Sum of the angles of pentagon = (n-2)*180
= (5-2) * 180 = 540
(1+2+3+5+9)x = 540
x = 27
9x = 27*9 = 243

9. b;
2.5% of x = 12.50
x = (12.50 * 100)/2.5 = 500

10. b;
The sum doubles in 15 years
2 times => 15 years
so, 8 times = 2¬3 times => 15*3 = 45 years
