a) 30%

b) 40%

c) 45%

d) 25%

e) 55%

**Solutions:**

**1. C)**Total simple interest received, I = Rs.1600

Principal, p = 7000

period, n = 5 years

Rate of interest, r = ?

Simple Interest,
I=pnr/100

⇒1600=(7000×5×r)/100

⇒r=(1600×100)/(7000×5)=160/35=32/7%

By rule of alligation,

Part1 : Part2
=4/7:1/07=4:10=2:5

Given that total amount
is Rs.7000. Therefore, the amount lent at 6% per annum (part1 amount) = 7000 ×
(2/7) = Rs. 2000

**2. D)**Speed of boat in still water = 30 km/hr

Speed upstream =10/1 = 10
km/hr

Speed of the stream =
(30-10) = 20 km/hr

Speed downstream =
(30+20) = 50 km/hr

Time taken to travel 10
km downstream = 10/50 hours = (10×60) / 50 = 12 minutes

**3. A)**28.5 =110% of cost price

26.75=(110×26.75) / 28.5
% = 103 % of cost price.

Therefore, required
profit percentage = 3%

**4. C)**Simple Interest for 3 years = (Rs.12010 - Rs.9850) = Rs.2160

Simple Interest for 5
years = (2160/3) × 5 = Rs.3600

Principal(P) = (Rs.9850 -
Rs.3600) = Rs.6250

R =
(100×SI)/PT=(100×3600) / (6125×5)=11.5%

**5. A)**Assume that cost of keeping a Horse for 1 day = h ,

cost of keeping a goat
for 1 day = g

Cost of keeping 20 Horses
and 40 goats for 10 days = 460

Cost of keeping 20 Horses
and 40 goats for 1 day = 460/10 = 46

=> 20h + 40g = 46

=> 10h + 20g = 23
---(1)

Given that 5g = h

Hence equation (1) can be
written as 10h + 4h = 23 => 14h =23

=> h=23/14

cost of keeping 50 Horses
and 30 goats for 1 day

= 50h + 30g

= 50h + 6c (substituted
5g = c)

= 56 h = 56×23/14 = 92

Cost of keeping 50 Horses
and 30 goats for 12 days = 12×92 = 1104

**6. B)**New speed = 6/7 of usual speed

Speed and time are inversely
proportional.

Hence new time =7/6 of
usual time

Hence, 7/6 of usual time
- usual time =15 minutes

⇒1/6 of usual time =15 minutes

Therefore, usual time
=15×6 = 90 minutes

=1 hour 30 minutes

**7. B)**Let present age of the elder person = x and

present age of the
younger person = x−15

(x - 7) = 4 (x – 15 - 7)

x – 7 = 4x – 88

3x = 81

x = 27

**8. B)**Let original length =l

original breadth =b

Then original area =lb

Length is increased by
20%

⇒ New length =l×(120/100)=1.2l

Breadth is increased by
20%

⇒ New breadth =b×(120/100)=1.2b

New area
=1.2l×1.2b=1.44lb

Increase in area = new
area - original area

=1.44lb – lb = 0.44lb

Percentage increase in
area

= (increase in area /
original area) × 100

= (0.44 lb / lb)×100 =
44%

**9. A)**Pipe A Efficiency = 100/10 = 10%

Pipe B Efficiency =
100/20 = 5%

Net Efficiency = 15%

15x + 10(8-x) = 100

x = 4

**10. E)**75 + 55 + x = 60% of all three subjects

75 + 55 + x = 60% of 400

x = 240 – 130 = 110

% = (110/200) * 100 = 55%
