SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol.

According to table it’s Inder.

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Required difference = 765 – 656 = 109

S10. Ans.(e)
Sol.
With help of statement A only, required number of ways can be found out.

S11. Ans.(e)
Sol. (10m+15w)  8=(12m+8w)10
80m+120w=120m+80w
40m=40w
And, m = w = 2B
Quantity I → 2m+4w+18b→2m+4m+9m → 15m
Quantity II →9m+3w+6b ⇒9m+3m+3m→15m
∴ Quantity I = Quantity II
