Solutions:
1. D) Let the number be x.
Then, 1/3 of ¼ of x = 15 => x = 15 * 12 = 180
So the required number = (3/10 × 180) = 54
2. B) Since the number is greater than the number obtained on reversing the digits, so the ten's digit is greater than the unit's digit.
Let ten's and unit's digits be 2x and x respectively.
Then, (10 x 2x + x) - (10x + 2x) = 36
=> 9x = 36
=> x = 4.
Therefore, Required difference = (2x + x) - (2x - x) = 2x = 8.
3. A) Total sale for 5 months = Rs. (6435 + 6927 + 6855 + 7230 + 6562) = Rs. 34009.
Therefore, Required sale = Rs. [ (6500 x 6) - 34009 ] = Rs. (39000 - 34009) = Rs. 4991.
4. D) Let C's age be x years. Then, B's age = 2x years. A's age = (2x + 2) years.
Therefore, (2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27
=> 5x = 25
=> x = 5.
Hence, B's age = 2x = 10 years.
5. E) L.C.M. of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 is 120.
So, the bells will toll together after every 120 seconds(2 minutes).
In 30 minutes, they will toll together = 30/2 + 1 = 16 times
6. B)   7. A)   8. C)   9. A)   10. A)
