**Q3. Rishabh bought 25 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs. 6 per kg and 35 kg of wheat at the rate of Rs. 7 per kg. He mixed both type of wheat and sold the mixture at the rate of Rs. 6.75 per kg. What was his gain or loss in the transaction?**

Rs. 16, gain

Rs. 16, Loss

Rs. 20, gain

Rs. 10, gain

Rs. 10, loss

Solution:

Loss or gain in the transaction

= 6.75 × 60 – (25 × 6 + 35 × 7)

= Rs. 10, gain

= 6.75 × 60 – (25 × 6 + 35 × 7)

= Rs. 10, gain

**Q4. In an examination 34% of the students failed in Mathematics and 42% failed in English. If 20% of the students failed in both the subjects, then the percentage of students who passed in both the subjects was**

56%

54%

50%

44%

36%

Solution:

Let the total students were 100

Failed in any or both subjects = 14 + 20 + 22 = 56%

Passed in both the subjects = 100 – 56 = 44%

Failed in any or both subjects = 14 + 20 + 22 = 56%

Passed in both the subjects = 100 – 56 = 44%

Solution:

2018: 40,000 + 25,000 + 10,000 + 15,000 + 10,000 + 12,000 = 1,12,000

2021: 50,000 + 40,000 + 20,000 + 20,500 + 12,500 + 20,000 = 1,63,000

Difference = 1,63,000 – 1,12,000 = 51,000

2021: 50,000 + 40,000 + 20,000 + 20,500 + 12,500 + 20,000 = 1,63,000

**Q8. Which among the following states has to construct maximum houses in all the given years together?**

HP

MP

Solution:

The total number of houses to be constructed in all the years for the States:

UP: (10 + 20 + 25 + 40 + 40 + 60 + 50) 1000 = 2,45,000

MP: 5,500 + 20,000 +18,000 + 25,000 +25000+ 30,500 + 40,000 = 1,64,000

HP: 2,000 + 5,000 + 5,000 + 10,000 + 5,000 + 15,000 + 20,000 = 62,000

Gujarat: 12,000 + 10,000 + 15,000 + 15,000 + 20,000 + 15,000 + 20,500 = 1,07,500

Telangana: 12,500 + 7500 + 5500 + 10,000 + 5,500 + 7,500 + 12,500 = 61,000

Bihar: 10,000 + 8,500 + 6,500 + 12,000 + 15,000 + 12,500 + 20,000 = 84,500

HP: 2,000 + 5,000 + 5,000 + 10,000 + 5,000 + 15,000 + 20,000 = 62,000

Gujarat: 12,000 + 10,000 + 15,000 + 15,000 + 20,000 + 15,000 + 20,500 = 1,07,500

Telangana: 12,500 + 7500 + 5500 + 10,000 + 5,500 + 7,500 + 12,500 = 61,000

Bihar: 10,000 + 8,500 + 6,500 + 12,000 + 15,000 + 12,500 + 20,000 = 84,500
