Solutions:
1.(d)
It is given that milk of
Ist quality = 403 gallons
IInd quality = 465 gallons
IIIrd quality = 496 gallons
Least number of bottles of equal size will be possible, when we have bottle having highest of largest size. Largest size having highest or largest size. Largest size bottle can be found by finding HCF of 403, 465 & 496.
403=13×31
465=15×31
496=16×31
HCF = 31
Total numbers of gallon required =13+15+16 = 44 gallons.

2.(a)
Let the number of candidates who passed=x.
Then, 39×x+15×(120-x)=120×35
? 24x=4200-1800
Or, x=2400/24, ?x=100.

3.(a)
Profit ratio of A, B and C is (1200×12):(x×9):(y×6)=2:3:5
Taking first and second terms we get
1200×12:9x=2:3
1200×12×3=9x×2
?x=(1200×12×3)/18=2400

4.(b)
Let x kg ore is there
20% washed away so remaining is 80% i.e. 4/5 x
Out of 4/5 x, 25% is pure iron i.e. 1/5 x now
Rs.1/5 xis obtained from x kg
Then 1 kg is obtained from 5 kg
Rs. 80000 kg is obtained from 5×80000=400000 kg

5.(b)
Let C.P. be Rs. x
900-x=2(x-450) ?3x=1800?x=600
C.P.=Rs.600, gain required=25%
? S.P.=Rs. (125/100×600)=Rs. 750

6. (d)
Rate=(12000×100)/(40000×3)=10%
Rs. Compound Interest=40000×(1+10/100)^3-40000 = 40000×(1331-1000)/1000=13240Rs.

7. (a);
Let fraction be x/y
ATQ,
(x+3x)/(y+y)=30/19
?76x=60y
?x/y=15/19

8. (a);
42×18=21×x
?No. of women x=(42×18)/21=36

9. (b);
Let age of Sulekha and Arunima be 9x and 8x year.
Now, ATQ
(9x+5)/(8x+5)=10/9
?x=5
Hence, Difference=9x-8x=
x= 5 year

10. (c);
Let total amount is Rs. ‘X’
?x-68357-25675=X × 28/100
?x=(94032×100)/72=130600 Rs.

11.(b)
Since, the speed of car is increasing constant i.e. in Arithmetic Progression,
where, first term = speed of car initially = 45 Km/hr
difference = constant increment = 3 km/hr
Number of terms = number of hours = 12 hours
hence, total distance = Sum = n/2 [2a+(n-1)d]
total distance = (12/2)[2×45 + (12-1)*3]
=6× (90+ 33)= 6×= 738 km

12.(a)
Reqd. Ratio of Profit
Gaurav : Karanveer : Rajveer
30000×36 : 45000×30 : 67500×24
= 108 : 135 : 162
= 12 : 15 : 18 = 4 : 5 : 6

13.(b)
Let the unit digit is ‘y’ and ten’s digit is x.
Hence, ATQ-
10*x + y – (10*y+ x) = 54
or, x – y = 6 …(1)
and, x + y = 12 …(2)
from both eqn, we get
x = 9, y = 3
hence, Number = 10*9 + 3 = 93

14.(c)
Ruchika’s marks= 115
Meena’s marks= 115 – 20 = 95
vidushi’s marks= 95 + 65= 160
Arohi’s marks=160 – 35= 125
Richa’s marks= 125+ 67= 192
Total maximum marks= 192 + 108= 300
Required percentage marks of Richa = (192/300)×100 = 64%

15.(c)
(Abhinav + Bindra)’s 1 day’s work = (1/45)+(1/40)= 17/360
Work done by Bindra in 23 days= Remaining work = 23*(1/40) = 23/40
Now, work (17/40)part was done by both in =[(17/40)/(17/360)]= 9 days
hence, Abhinav left after 9 days.
