ANSWERS With Solutions: 
1.    Answer: (A)
Percentage of money spend
on Tennis = [(45 /360)] X 100% = 12 ½

2.    Answer:
(A)
Let the total spending on
sports be Rs. x. Then,
Amount spent on Golf =
Rs  [(36x/ 360 )] = Rs. x/ 10
Amount spent on Hockey =
Rs [ ( 63x/360)]= Rs. 7x /40
Difference = Rs. [(7x /40)
– (x/10)]  = Rs 3x/40
Required percentage = Rs.
[ (3x/40)/ x /10) * 100] % = 75%

3.    Answer: (A)
Amount spent on Basketball
exceeds that on Tennis by:
Rs. [ (50 – 45)/ 360) *
1,80,00,000]= Rs. 2,50,000.

4.    Answer: (C)
Let the total spending on
sports be Rs. x. Then,
Amount spent on Cricket =
Rs [( 81/360) * x ) = Rs. 9x/40
Amount spent on Football =
Rs [( 54/360) *x] = Rs. 3x/20
Difference = Rs. [ ( 9x
/40) – ( 3x/20) ] = Rs. 3x/40
Required percentage = Rs.
[ (3x/40/ 9x/40) * 100)] % = 33 1/3 %

5.    Answer: (C)
Let the amount of Royalty
to be paid for these books be Rs. r.
Then, 20 : 15 = 30600 : r
    ð 
r = Rs. 22,950

6.    Answer: (C)
Central angle
corresponding to Royalty = (15% of 360)º
[(15/100) *360]0
= 540

7.    Answer:
(B)
Clearly, marked price of
the book = 120% of C.P.
Also, cost of paper = 25%
of C.P
Let the cost of paper for
a single book be Rs. n.
Then, 120 : 25 = 180 : n
n =  Rs. 37. 50

8.    Answer: (A)
For the publisher to earn
a profit of 25%, S.P. = 125% of C.P.
Also Transportation Cost =
10% of C.P
Let the S.P. of 5500 books
be Rs. x.
Then, 10 : 125 = 82500 : x.
x
= Rs. [(125 x 82500) x
10]= Rs. 1031250
S.P.
of one book = Rs. (1031250/ 5500)= Rs. 187.50

9.    Answer: (D)
Printing Cost of book =
20% of C.P.
Royalty on book = 15% of
C.P.
Difference = (20% of C.P.)
– (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.
Percentage difference = [
(Difference/Printing) * 100%
= [ ( 5% of C.P./Printing
Cost ) x 100%]

= 25%
