**Answers:**

**1)b 2)c 3)b 4)d 5)e 6)e 7)b 8)d 9)e 10)d**

**Solutions:**

1. B) Let the
amount invested by Mahesh be Rs.x

And the amount
invested by Sudheer = 80x/100 = 4x/5

Amount invested
by Mohan = 4x/5 × 120/100 = 24x/25

Now x + 4x/5 +
24x/25 = 69069 => (25 + 20 + 24)x/25 = 69069 => x = Rs.25025

Hence amount
invested by Mahesh is Rs.25025

2. C) Let the
circumference of the larger circle be 2ÐŸR

And that of the
smaller circle be 2ÐŸr

Now 2ÐŸR = 352 =>
R = (352 × 7)/(2 × 22) = 42

Thus,
difference between the area of larger circle and that of the smaller circle

= ÐŸR

^{2}– ÐŸr^{2}=ÐŸ56^{2}– ÐŸ42^{2}= ÐŸ(56^{2}– 42^{2}) = 22/7 × (1372) = 4312 m^{2}
3. B) Work done
by Vinayak and Bhagat in 6 days = 6 × (1/36 + 1/42) = 13/42

Work done by
Vivek and Bhagat in last 10 days = 10 × (1/36 + 1/42) = 65/126

Therefore
remaining work which is done by Subhash = 1 – (13/42 + 65/126) = 11/63

Time taken by
Subhash on the work = 11/63 × 48 = 8 8/21 days

4. D) In 50 litres mixture of first pot, the amount
of milk = 50 × 3/10 = 15 liters

And amount of
water = 50 × 7/10 = 35 liters

Let 5x litres
mixtures from 2nd pot be poured into the first pot. In 5x litres, milk is 4x
litres and water is x litre

Now, (15 +
4x)/(35 + x) = 2/3 => 3(15 + 4x) = 2(35 + x) => 45 + 12x = 70 + 2x =>
10x = 70 – 45 => x = 2.5

Therefore
required amount of mixture = 5 × 2.5 = 12.5 litres

5. E) Let the
sum be Rs.x. Simple Interest = 16x/25

Let the rate be
r% and time be r years

According to
the question,

16x/25 = x × r ×
r/100 => 16/25 × 100 = r

^{2}=> r = 8
Rate = 8% and
time = 8 years

6. E)

7. B) Let the
length and breadth of the rectangle be l and b respectively.

A => l

^{2}+ b^{2}= 25; B => l + b + h = 4b or l = 3b – 5
C => Ratio
between l and b is given. After combining any of the above two statements, we
get the values of l and b. Hence any of them can be dispensed with.

8. D) When
investment ratio is given, the amount of profit can be found out with the help
of C only.

9. E)

10. D) The area
of four walls can be easily determined with the help of the data given in the
question. Now the area of the windows and door with the help of (B) can be
subtracted in the calculated area and then multiplied with the cost given in
(A).
