3. A) The pattern of the series is +11, -9, +7, -5, +3
4. D) The pattern of the series is +5^3, +6^2, +7^3, +8^2, +9^3
5. D) The pattern of the series is +5×11, +6×12, +7×13, +8×14, +9×15
11. B) CP of fan = (12/100)*72000 = 8640
Profit% = 25%
SP of fan = (8640*125)/100 = 10800
CP of cooler = (18/100)*72000 = 12960
Profit% = 48%
SP of cooler = (12960*148)/100 = 19180.80
Total SP of fan and cooler together = 10800 + 19180.80 = 29980.80
CP of TV = (21/100)*72000 = 15120
Profit% = 42%
SP of TV = (15120*142)/100 = 21470.40
CP of radio = (10/100)*72000 = 7200
Profit % = 36%
SP of radio = (7200*136)/100 = 9792
Total SP of TV and radio = 21470.40 + 9792 = 31262.40
Required % = (29980.80/31262.40)*100 = 95.9% = 96%(approx.)
12. D) Since, we don’t have discount of TV. So, we can’t find the marked price.
13. D) CP of LED = (26/100)*72000 = 18720
Profit% = 28%
SP of LED = (18720*128)/100 = 23961.60
SP of TV = 21470.40
Required difference = 23961.60 – 21470.40 = 2491.20
14. A) CP of fan = (12/100)*72000 = 8640
Profit% = 25%
SP of fan = (8640*125)/100 = 10800
CP of watch = (13/100)*72000 = 9360
Profit % = 35%
SP of watch = (9360*135)/100 = 12636
Required % = (10800/12636)*100 = 85.47% = 85%
15. B) CP of radio = (10/100)*72000 = 7200
Profit% = 36%
SP of radio = (7200*136)/100 = 9792
Discount on radio = 20%
MP of radio = (9792/80)*100 = 12240
CP of LED = (26/100)*72000 = 18720
Profit% = 28%
SP of LED = (18720*128)/100 = 23961.60
Required % = (12240/23961.60)*100 = 51.08% = 51%
16. A) 5 parts = 25 litre
12 parts = 60 litre
60 – 12 : 25-5+10 = 8 : 5
