1. (3)
P = 29000 CI = 9352.5 N = 2 years  A = P + I = 38,352.5
Substituting the values in
A = P(1 + R/100)^n
Solving we get R = 15%.

2. (2)
The required time will be the LCM of 8, 18 and 15 which is 360 sec or 6 minutes.

3. (3)
Π R^2 = 39424
R = 112
Perimeter of square = 4a = 112
Side of square = 112/4 = 28
Area of square = 28^2 = 784 cm2.

4. (1)
Number of ways = 5C2 * 6C2 *3C1 = 450

5. (4)
Number of ways = 11C2 * 3C3 = 55.

6. (3)
Required number of days = (30 * 36)/18 = 60

7. (4)
Let total income of Ram be x. Then
(100 – 50 – 20 – 5)% of x = 11250
x = 45000.

8. (5)
Let the number be xy
(10x + y) – (10y + x) = 54
x – y = 6 And  x + y = 12
Solving the equations we get x = 9 and y = 3
So the number is 93.

9. (1)
Let the age of Geeta’s daughter be x. Then Geeta’s age is 8x.
(8x + 8)/(x + 8) = 10/3
x = 4
Geeta’s present age = 8x = 32 years.

10. (3)
Required number of ways = 4! * 3! * 2! = 288.
