**ANSWERS With Solutions:**

**1.**

**Answer**: (

**A**)

Percentage of money spend

on Tennis = [(45 /360)] X 100% = 12 ½

on Tennis = [(45 /360)] X 100% = 12 ½

**2.**

**Answer:**

(A)

(A)

Let the total spending on

sports be Rs. x. Then,

sports be Rs. x. Then,

Amount spent on Golf =

Rs [(36x/ 360 )] = Rs. x/ 10

Rs [(36x/ 360 )] = Rs. x/ 10

Amount spent on Hockey =

Rs [ ( 63x/360)]= Rs. 7x /40

Rs [ ( 63x/360)]= Rs. 7x /40

Difference = Rs. [(7x /40)

– (x/10)] = Rs 3x/40

– (x/10)] = Rs 3x/40

Required percentage = Rs.

[ (3x/40)/ x /10) * 100] % = 75%

[ (3x/40)/ x /10) * 100] % = 75%

**3.**

**Answer**: (

**A**)

Amount spent on Basketball

exceeds that on Tennis by:

exceeds that on Tennis by:

Rs. [ (50 – 45)/ 360) *

1,80,00,000]= Rs. 2,50,000.

1,80,00,000]= Rs. 2,50,000.

**4.**

**Answer**: (

**C**)

Let the total spending on

sports be Rs. x. Then,

sports be Rs. x. Then,

Amount spent on Cricket =

Rs [( 81/360) * x ) = Rs. 9x/40

Rs [( 81/360) * x ) = Rs. 9x/40

Amount spent on Football =

Rs [( 54/360) *x] = Rs. 3x/20

Rs [( 54/360) *x] = Rs. 3x/20

Difference = Rs. [ ( 9x

/40) – ( 3x/20) ] = Rs. 3x/40

/40) – ( 3x/20) ] = Rs. 3x/40

Required percentage = Rs.

[ (3x/40/ 9x/40) * 100)] % = 33 1/3 %

[ (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.

to be paid for these books be Rs. r.

Then, 20 : 15 = 30600 : r

ð

r = Rs. 22,950

r = Rs. 22,950

**6.**

**Answer**: (

**C**)

Central angle

corresponding to Royalty = (15% of 360)º

corresponding to Royalty = (15% of 360)º

**7.**

**Answer:**

(B)

(B)

Clearly, marked price of

the book = 120% of C.P.

the book = 120% of C.P.

Also, cost of paper = 25%

of C.P

of C.P

Let the cost of paper for

a single book be Rs. n.

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.

a profit of 25%, S.P. = 125% of C.P.

Also Transportation Cost =

10% of C.P

10% of C.P

Let the S.P. of 5500 books

be Rs. x.

be Rs. x.

Then, 10 : 125 = 82500 : x.

x

= Rs. [(125 x 82500) x

10]= Rs. 1031250

= Rs. [(125 x 82500) x

10]= Rs. 1031250

S.P.

of one book = Rs. (1031250/ 5500)= Rs. 187.50

of one book = Rs. (1031250/ 5500)= Rs. 187.50

**9.**

**Answer**: (

**D**)

Printing Cost of book =

20% of C.P.

20% of C.P.

Royalty on book = 15% of

C.P.

C.P.

Difference = (20% of C.P.)

– (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.

– (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.

Percentage difference = [

(Difference/Printing) * 100%

(Difference/Printing) * 100%

= [ ( 5% of C.P./Printing

Cost ) x 100%]

Cost ) x 100%]

= 25%
