**Solutions:**

**1. C)**

**2. A)**

**3. A)**

**4. D)**

**5. B)**Let the sums be x and y

R1 = 6, R2 = 7, T = 2

(P1 * R1 * T)/100 + (P2 *
R2 * T) = 354

=> (x * 6 * 2)/100 +
(y * 7 * 2)/100 = 254 => 6x + 7y = 17700
……(1)

Also, x/4 = y/5 => 5x –
4y = 0 ……..(2)

Solving both the
equations we get x = 1200; y = 1500

Therefore sum = 1200 +
1500 = 2700

**6. C)**As the profit are distributed equally and Sanjay invested for six months, his investment will be two times of the investment of Rahul. Therefore, Sanjay investment is 2 * 8000 = Rs. 16000.

**7. D)**Sum of 8 members 10 years ago = 231 years

Sum of 8 members 7 years
ago = 231 – 60 + 24 = 195 years

Sum of 8 members 4 years
ago = 195 – 60 + 24 = 159 years

Sum of 8 members at
present = 159 + 32 = 191 years

Therefore average age = 24
years

**8. C)**Required % = 120/300 * 100 = 40%

**9. A)**From the given information

(x * 6 * 2)/100 = [(6000 –
x) * 8 * 3)]/100 => x = Rs.4000

**10. B)**Let no.of workers = x; total work = 9x

According to the question,
number of men working each day is

x, x-2, x-1, x-3, x-2, ……
till 18 days

on arranging (9x –
36) + (9x – 54) = 9x => x = 10

**1. C) 2. C) 3. B) 4. E) 5. D)**

**(6 – 10):**

In every step there are
both word and number are shifting .

For Words : in each step
Word and Numbers are arranged in which that words are arranged

1st, by considering the
last letter of a particular word in alphabetical series. For example, “Dell

and Toshiba” in which we
can see that “A” and “L” is last letter of both words but A comes 1st,

so “Toshiba” will arrange
1st.

For Numbers: it is
arranged in increasing order of Prime number and increasing order of others

left numbers.
