(b) 60%

(c) 70%

(d) 85%

(e) 75%

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol.

Let distance = d km and speed of stream = s km/hr

∴ (4 – s) × 9 = (4 + s) × 3

⇒ 12 – 2s = 4 + s

⇒ s = 2 km/hr

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol.

Let speed of boat in still water = v

Speed of stream = s

ATQ,

(v – s) × 2 = (v + s)

⇒ 2v – 2s = v + s

⇒ v = 3s

⇒ v : s = 3 : 1

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol.

Let no. of balls in bag X = 2a

No. of balls in bag Y = 3a

ATQ,

3a – 5 = 2a + 3

⇒ a = 8

∴ No. of balls in each bag now

= 24 – 5

= 19

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol.

Let total no. students who failed = x

Total students who passed = 4x

ATQ,

Total students = 5x – 35

Total failed students = x + 9

∴ Total passed students

= 5x – 35 – x – 9

= 4x – 44

∴(4x–44)/(x+9)=2/1

⇒ 4x – 44 = 2x + 18

⇒ x = 31

∴ Total students = 155
