Solutions:
1. D) Increase in amount due to price rise = 25% of Rs.500 = Rs.125
Increase price of 50 oranges = Rs.125
Increase price per dozen = 125/50 × 12 = Rs.30
2. A) Net percentage change in area = P1 + P2 + [(P1 × P2)/100] = 4 – 5 + [(4 × - 5)/100] = -1 – 1/5  = – 6/5%
3. B) Let he played x innings.
x × 21.75+ 28 + 34 +37 = (x + 3) × (1.125 + 21.75)
=> x = 30.375/1.125 = 27
Therefore no. of innings = 27 + 3 = 30
4. C) loss% = [3/(12 + 3)] × 100 = 20%
5. B) Let the Cost price be Rs.100
Therefore SP = Rs.119
Therefore MP = 119/85 × 100 = Rs.140
Therefore Required % = [(140 – 100)/100] × 100 = 40%
6. A) 1×2….2×4….8×6….48×8
7. B) 1….4…..9….16…..25
8. C) Double difference
3…..14…..26…..39
11…….12….13…….14
9. D) x0.5….x1…..x1.5…..x2…..x2.5
10. E) -7…..-14…..-21….-28
