SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol.
59.98 = ? – 15.81
? = 75.79

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.
1863 - ? = 202.64
? = 1660.36

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.
44.5-5.5=√(?)
√(?)=39
? = (39)² = 1521

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol.
22 + 93 + 361 = 441 + 33 + ?
476 – 474 = ?
? = 2

S5. Ans.(e)
Sol.
24×√(?)=864
√(?)=864×1/24
√(?)=36
? = 1296

S6. Ans.(e)
Sol.
Ravi’s one day work=1/24
Ravi’s efficiency: Satyender’s efficiency = 5 : 6
Satyender’s one day work=1/24×6/5=1/20
(Ravi + Satyender)one day work=1/20+1/24=11/120
Time taken=120/11 days=10 10/11 days

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Speed of train=240/3=80 km⁄hr
Speed of car=80/4×3=60 km⁄hr
Speed of jeep=(60×3)/2=90 km/hr
Distance covered by Jeep = 90 × 5 = 450 km/hr

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Let investment of Sahil is 100x
So Sumit’s investment = 150x
Let time of investment is 2y and y
Profit ratio = Sumit : Sahil
( 150x×2y)/(100x×y)=3∶1
ATQ—
Total profit=(7550×4)/2
=Rs.15100

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let time taken is ‘t’
Now,
ATQ—
110/(x–y)=140/(x+y)=t
x/y=25/3
Where; x = speed of boat in still water
And , y = speed of stream
Required %=3/25×100=12%

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Let age of Rahul and Amit is 10x and 11x
Now,
ATQ—
Vikas Age → 10x + 4 = 11x + 2
x = 2
⇒Vikas' s Age=10×2+4=24
Rahul' s Age=10×2=20
Amit' s Age=11×2=22
Sum of  present ages of all three → 20 + 22 + 24 = 66
