10.A certain distance is covered at a certain speed.if half of this distance is coveredin double the time,the ratio of the two speed is.
(1)4:1
(2)1:4
(3)1:8
(4)1:6
(5)8:1

1. (1) Let distance be x kmph and speed y kmph
x/y – x/(y+3) = 40/ 60 ………… (i)
x/(y-2) – x/y = 40/60 ………….. (ii)
from eqution (i) & (ii)
y = 12 kmph
x = 40 km
2. (4) Red = 6, White = 3
P(E) = RWRW + WRWR
P(E) = 6/9 * 3/8 * 5/7  * 2/6  + 3/9 * 6/8* 2/7 * 5/6
=  5/42
3. (3)
P = 10,000, R = 10 % , T = 4  years
A = P (1 + r/100)^n
= 10000 (1 + 10/100) ^4
= 10000 (11/10)^4   = 14641
C.I = 14641 – 10, 000 = 4641

4. (2)No. of face cord = 4 * 3 = 12
P (E) = 12/52 = 3/13
5(1)
Distance covered in 2 min = 2-1 = 1 meter
2 min = 1
24 min = 12
in next minute ascend = 2 m
25 minute = 14 meter

6(4)  Let no of days required be x
30 * 24 = 20 * x * (1 + 1/3)
x  = 27 days

7 (2)  Since SP of x = CP of 20
SP/CP = 20/x
profit %  = (20 – x)* 100/x
So,(20 -x)100/x  = 25
x = 16

8(1)CP = (1920 + 1280)/2  = 1600
SP = 1600 * 125/100 = 2000

9(2)  Let usual speed be x kmph
1500/x – 1500/(x + 250) = 1/2
By option
x = 750 kmph

10 (1)Let Distance = D
Time =  T
S1 = D/T
S2 = (D/2)/(2T)
S1/52 = D/T/(D/2)(2T)
S1 : S2 = 4 : 1
