**Q7. A tank can be filled by one tap in 20 min. and by another in 25 min. Both the taps are kept open for 5 min. and then the second tap is turned off. In how many more minutes is the tank completely filled?**

6 minutes

11 minutes

12 minutes

17 minutes

24 minutes

Solution:

LCM (20, 25) = 100 unit

A’s efficiency = 100/20 = 5 unit/ min

B’s efficiency = 100/25 = 4 unit/min

5 (A + B) + x.A = 100

5 (5 + 4) + x.5 = 100

45 + 5x = 100

5x = 55

⇒ x = 11 minute.

A’s efficiency = 100/20 = 5 unit/ min

B’s efficiency = 100/25 = 4 unit/min

5 (A + B) + x.A = 100

5 (5 + 4) + x.5 = 100

45 + 5x = 100

5x = 55

⇒ x = 11 minute.

**Q10. A sink contains exactly 12 litres of water. If water is drained from the sink until it holds exactly 6 litres of water less than the quantity drained away, then how many litres of water were drained away?**

2 litres

6 litres

3 litres

9 litres

4 litres

Solution:

Let, required water to be drained out be x â„“

∴ x + x – 6 =12

⇒ x = 9 â„“

∴ x + x – 6 =12

⇒ x = 9 â„“
