Solutions:
1. D) Booked flights by Airline’s C and D
in 2015 = 540 + 615 = 1155
Booked flights by Airline
B in 2013 = 715
∴ Required percentage = (1155/715) × 100 = 161%
2. A) Number
of flights cancelled by Airline C in 2016 due to bad weather and technical
fault = 35% of 660 = 0.35 × 660 = 231
∴ Number of flights booked by Airline C in 2016 due to
Technical fault = 660 – 231 = 429
3. E) The
average number of flights booked by the Airlines A, B, D and E in the year 2014
= (585 + 645 + 590 + 500)/4 = 2320/4 = 580
4. B) The
approximate percentage increase in number of flights booked by Airline D in the
year 2012 as compared to previous year = [(545 – 395)/395] × 100 = 38%
5. C) The
difference between the highest number of flights booked by Airline E and the
lowest number of flights booked by Airline B out of all the six years = 725 –
420 = 305
6. C) ⇒ Selling price of Rice = 40 × 105/100 = 42
⇒ Selling price of Sugar = 45 + 5 + 50 = 100
∴ Required difference = 100  42 = 58
7. E) ⇒ Selling price of pulse = 90 Rs.
⇒ Loss = 6%
⇒ Total CP = 90 × 100/94 = 95.74 Rs
∴ Cost of packaging of pulse = 95.74  70.10 = 15.74
8. A) CP
of Rice = 40
SP of milk = 40 × 80/100
= 32
CP of milk = 20 + 3 + 1 =
24
% profit = (32  24)/24 ×
100 = 33.33%
9. C) ∵ CP of (4 kg Ghee + 3 kg Rice + 5 kg
milk)
⇒ 4 × (80 + 8) + 3 × 40 + 5 × (20 + 3)
⇒ 352 + 120 + 115 = 587
⇒ SP of (4 kg Ghee + 3 kg Rice + 5 kg milk)
⇒ 4 × 120 + 3 × 42 + 5 × 32 = 480 + 126 + 160 = 766
% profit = (766 
587)/587 × 100 = 30.49%
10. A) ⇒ Number of unemployed male travelers who travel on Preet
Vihar and Laxmi Nagar DTC bus route = 1040 + 1000 = 2040
⇒ Number of unemployed male travelers who travel on Rohini and
Moti Nagar DTC bus route = 600 + 420 = 1020
∴ Respective ratio = 2 : 1
11. D) ⇒ Number of male travelers who travel on Saket and Laxmi Nagar
DTC bus route are more than 40 years of age = 20% of 5500 = 1100
⇒ So, male travelers less than 40 years of age = 4400
⇒ Number of female travelers who travel on Rohini and Anand
Vihar DTC bus route are more than 40 years of age = 40% of 3900 = 1560
⇒ So, female travelers less than 40 years of age = 2340
∴ Total number of travelers mentioned on above routes who are less than 40
years of age = 6740
12. A) ⇒ Number of female travelers who
travel on Anand Vihar, Preet Vihar and Rohini DTC bus route together = 1400 +
2400 + 2500 = 6300
⇒ Number of male travelers who travel on Moti Nagar, Saket and
Laxmi Nagar DTC bus route together = 1400 + 3000 + 2500 = 6900
∴ Percentage = (6900 – 6300)/6900 × 100 = 8.70% less
13. B) ⇒ Number of female travelers who
travel on Saket and Laxmi Nagar DTC bus routes together = 4500
⇒ Total travelers on these DTC bus routes = 10000
∴ Percentage = 4500/10000 × 100 = 45%
14. C) ⇒ Number of male travelers who travel
on Anand Vihar and Preet Vihar DTC bus route together = 4200
⇒ Number of female travelers who travel on Moti Nagar and
Rohini DTC bus route together = 3600
∴ Difference = 600
