Solutions:
(1 – 5): Explanation:
Speed of vehicle A on 1st day = 832/16 = 52kmph
Speed of vehicle A on 2nd day = 864/16 = 54kmph
Speed of vehicle B on 1st day = 516/12 = 43kmph
Speed of vehicle B on 2nd day = 774/18 = 43kmph
Speed of vehicle C on 1st day = 693/11 = 63kmph
Speed of vehicle C on 2nd day = 810/18 = 45kmph
Speed of vehicle D on 1st day = 552/15 = 46kmph
Speed of vehicle D on 2nd day = 765/15 = 51kmph
Speed of vehicle E on 1st day = 935/17 = 55kmph
Speed of vehicle E on 2nd day = 546/14 = 39kmph
Speed of vehicle F on 1st day = 703/19 = 37kmph
Speed of vehicle F on 2nd day = 636/12 = 53kmph
1. D) The speed of vehicle B on both the days = 43 km/h 

2. C) Required speed of A on 1st day = 52 km/h
Speed of C on 1st day = 63 km/h
Difference = 63 - 52 = 11 km/h

3. E) Speed of vehicle C on 2nd day = 45 km/h
=45×5/18 = 12.5 m/s

4. E) Required percentage =636/703×100 = 90.46 ≈ 90%

5. B) Required Ratio = Speed of vehicle D on 2nd Day/Speed of vehicle E on 2nd Day
= 51/39 = 17/13 or 17 : 13

6. C) Difference between percentage amounts of Gautam and Rudra = (54 – 46) = 8%
Rate = (4436.52 × 100)/(4 × 8 × 840) = (4436.520 × 100)/(4 × 6720) = 443652/26880 ≈ 16.5%

7. A) Required Ratio = [(22000 × 40/100) + (42 × 64000/100)]/[(22000 × 60/100) + (58 × 64000/100)] = (320 × 40 + 42 × 640)/(320 × 60 + 58 × 640) = (12800 + 26800)/(19200 + 37120) = 39680/56320 = 3968/5632 = 31/44 or 31 : 44

8. D) If compared half-yearly, then R = R/2% and Time T = 2T
Here, R = 16/2 = 8% and Time = 2year
Again, applying rule (x + y + xy)/100
R = 8 + 8 + (8 × 8)/100 = 16.64%
Sum of Interest = [(600 × 30 × 16.64)/100 + (600 × 70 × 16.64)/100]
= 2995.2 + 6988.8 = Rs.9984

9. A) Amount invested by Gautam = (32000 × 40)/100 = Rs.12800
Amount invested by Rudra = 32000 × 60/100 = Rs.19200
Now applying rule (x × y + xy/100)
Rate of interest = 12 + 12 + (12 × 12)/100 = 25.44%
Therefore required diffenence in interest earned by Rudra and Gautam
= (19200 × 25.44/100) – (12800 × 25.44/100) = 4884.48 – 3256.32 = Rs.1628.16

10. A) Average = (840 × 54 + 720 × 60 + 320 × 40 + 600 × 30 + 640 × 42)/5
= (45360 + 43200 + 12800 + 18000 + 26800)/5 = 146240/5 = Rs.29248
