e) Rs.4500

Solutions:
1. B) From Bahubali 1:
The money earned through Video Game Rights = 5% of 250 crore = 12.5 crore
Earnings after 8% increase = 108% of 12.5 crore = 13.5 crore
The money earned through Music Rights = 12% of 250 crore = 30 crore
Earning after 10% decrease = 90% of 30 = 27 crore
Now, the total money earned through Video Games Rights and Music Rights = 13.5 + 27 = 40.5 crore
From Bahubali 2:
The money earned through Video Games Rights = 36°
Total money earned through Video Games Rights = 36/360 of 500 cr = 50 cr
And, the money earned through Music Rights = 18°
Total earning through Music Rights = 18/360 of 500 cr = 25 cr
Now, the total money earned through Video Games Rights and Music Rights = 50 + 25 = 75 crore
Reqd difference = 75 40.5 = 34.5 crore
2. A) From Bahubali 2:
The money earned through TV Rights = 54° of 500 crore = 54/360 of 500 cr = 75 cr
The money earned through DVD Rights = 18° of 500 crore = 18/360 of 500 cr = 25 cr
The total money earned through TV Rights and DVD Rights = 75 + 25 = 100 crore
From Bahubali 1:
The money earn through TV Rights = 20% of 250 crore = 50 crore
The money earn through DVD Rights = 18% of 250 crore = 45 crore
The total money earned through TV Rights and DVD Rights = 50 + 45 = 95 crore
Reqd difference = 100 95 crore = 5 crore more by Bahubali 2.
3. D) 4. C) Sponsorship in Bahubali 1 = 360 × 15/100 = 54°
Sponsorship in Bahubali 2 = 72°
Percentage increase in the angle subtended by Sponsorship
= 18/54 × 100 = 33.33%
5. B) Total earning of Bahubali 2 = 500 cr
Increased collection = 150% of 500 = 750 cr
Distribution of Ticket sale and Sponsership = (108 + 72) degrees of 500 = 50% of 500 = 250 cr
Increased distribution of Ticket sale and Sponsership = 250 + 250 = 500 cr
Therefore, anuglar distribution of Ticket sale and Sponsership = 500/750 × 360 = 240
Therefore, angular distribution of the other categories = 360 - 240 = 120 degrees
And as earlier angular distribution of the other categories = 180 degrees
Percentage reduction in angular distribution of other categories = (180 – 120)/180 × 100 = 33.33%

After filling all the missing details, we get
 Year Vodafone Idea Airtel Reliance BSNL Total 2007 2050 9350 9600 8500 14000 43500 2008 2200 10100 21400 10000 12000 55700 2009 2350 18700 12000 14000 11500 58550 2010 2400 11800 13500 16400 12800 56900 2011 2460 14860 14300 14800 14600 61020 2012 2530 12500 17670 16400 16500 65600 2013 2560 32800 12750 20400 18000 86510 2014 2640 13500 12600 20000 20400 69140 2015 2730 24050 16400 21500 22500 87180 2016 2850 24400 20300 22400 26600 96550 Total 24770 172060 150520 164400 168900
6. B)
Total number of BSNL users from 2009 to 14 = 11500 + 12800 + 14600 + 16500 + 18000 + 20400 = 93800
And, the total number of Vodafone users from 2008 to 16 = 2200 + 2350 + 2400 + 2460 + 2530 + 2560 + 2640 + 2730 + 2850 = 22720
Reqd ratio = 93800 : 22720 = 2345 : 568.
7. C)
Total number of Airtel and Reliance users in the year 2010 = 13500 + 16400 = 29900
Total number of BSNL and Idea users in 2012 = 16500 + 12500 = 29000
Therefore required percentage = (29900 – 29000)/29000 × 100 = 900/29000 × 100 = 3.1%
8. C)
Earning of Airtel from each user in 2009 = 174 cr/12000 = 145000
Similarly, in year 2014 = 189 cr/12600 = 150000
Therefore required % = 150000 – 145000/145000 × 100 = 3.44%
9. A)
Total amount of data Reliance gives to their users in 2013 = 20400 × 50 = 1020000 mb ≈ 996 GB
Similarly, Vodafone = 2560 × 30 = 76800 mb = 75 GB
Therefore, total data of Reliance and Vodafone  = 996 + 75 = 1071 GB
And, Idea = 32800 × 50 = 1640000 mb ≈ 1602 GB
Reqd difference = 1602 1071 = 531 GB
10. D)
The total number of users of all other networks = Total users of 2016 – Reliance users of 2016 = 96550 – 22400 = 74150
And, the total number of users chose Reliance network = 30% of 74150 = 22245
Total number of users of Reliance network in 2016 = 22400
Total percentage increase =   22245/22400 × 100 ≈ 99%
11. C)
From I: Our answer is ‘Yes’ because from here, the minute hand will take 30 minutes to reach 6, and the hour hand will take an entire hour.
From II: Our answer is ‘No’. There are two possible times in this situation: approx 5 : 15 (the minute hand takes 15 minutes to reach 6 and the hour hand takes 45) and approx 3 : 45 (the minute hand takes 45 minutes to reach 6 and the hour hand takes 2 hours and 15 minutes, which is 135 minutes.)
12. A)
From I: If a month starts and ends with the same day of the week, it must have a complete number of weeks plus one more day. The only possible month is a 29-day February.
From II: In order to add up to 38, it can only be the highest possible number for the last Monday of a month (31) and the highest for the first Thursday of a month (7). Therefore, both last month and the current must have 31 days. The only two 31-day months in a row in the same calendar year are July and August. If both the months are from the same calendar year, August is our answer. But the statement does not say that the both the months are from the same calendar year. Note that December and January are also the months in a row which have 31 days each.
13. B)
From II: The first crossing took place at point A. Consider A as a new starting point. Do the same for every crossing point. Since they drove at consistent speeds, the distances from A to B, B to C, and C to A are the same. After point A, one car must have driven twice the distance as the other to reach B at the same time. Therefore, one goes twice as fast as the other.
14. E)
From I and II together: Every player takes an odd number of matches per play. After the first player goes, there will always be an odd number of matches left. After the second player goes, there will always be an even number of matches left. Therefore, the second player, ieDeepa, is the winner.
15. E)
From I and II together: The team A could win 3 points only by winning one match and tying another. Since they only scored one goal, the results must be 1-0 and 0-0. The team C tied one and lost the other match. The scores must have been 1-1 and 0-1. Their tied game must have been against the team B. So team A beat team C (1-0) and team A tied with team B (0-0).
16. A) If the interest is calculated only once a year, it must be a case of Simple Interest.
Net % rate of interest at SI for 2 years = 10 × 2 = 20%
Now, as in the 2nd scenario the sum is calculated at CI on half-yearly basis, we can find the overall rate of interest approximately by applying the net % effect formula thrice.
Net % rate for 1st two half-years = 5 + 5 + (5 × 5)/100 = 10.25%
Net % rate till next half-year = 10.25 + 5 + (10.25 × 5)/100 = 15.25 + 0.5125 ≈ 15.76%
Net % rate till the last half year = 15.76 + 5 + (15.76 × 5)/100 = 20.76 + 0.788 ≈ 21.55
Difference in CI and SI = 21.55 ~ 20 = 1.55%
1.55% of 5000 = 77.5
17. B) Let the Boman had total amount = ₹ 100.
Money spent on buying the cellphone = 20% of 100 = ₹ 20
Remaining amount after spending on cellphone = 100 – 20 = 80
Money spent on buying the laptop  = 15% of 80 = 12
Remaining amount after spending on laptop = 80 – 12 = 68
Now, applying the rule of proportion, we get
68  ≡ 1200 (the money left) + 160 (donated money) or
68 ≡ 1360
12 ≡ x
X = (1360 × 12)/68 = ₹ 240
18. D) Upstream speed = 16 – 2 = 14 kmph
Downstream speed = 16 + 2 = 18 kmph
Let the distance from B to C be 'd' km. Therefore the distance between A and B will be 'd+12' km.
As per the question,
Time taken to travel 'd' at 14 kmph = Time taken to travel (d + 12) at 18 kmph
Then d/14 = (d + 12)/18
or, 18d = 14d + 12 × 14
or, 4d = 12 × 14 d = 42 km
Now, the time taken by the boat to cover the distance from C to B downstream
= 42/18 hrs = 2 1/3 hrs = 2 hrs 20 min
19. B) Let the CP be x
Now CP = 80x/100
Discount price = 93.75/100 × 80/100 × x
Now, loss of the company = Original CP – Discounted (Selling) Price
Therefore, Loss = x – (93.75 × 80x)/10000 = 42.5
10000x – 7500x = 42.5 × 10000 => x = 425000/2500 = 170
Therefore, Selling price of the article = 170 – 42.5 = 127.5
20. C) Ratio of capital = Atal's capital × Time : Bihari's capital × Time : Vajpayee's capital × Time
45000 × 12 : (60000 × 3 + 40000 × 9) : (90000 × 3 + 30000 × 9)
= 540000 : 540000 : 540000 = 54 : 54 : 54 = 1 : 1 : 1
Sum of ratios = 1 + 1 + 1 = 3
Now, Bihari's share = 1/3 × 12750 = Rs.4250
