1. C) M2 sold by B=(0.18*7lakhs)*(5/8)*0.54=42525 units
A=(0.29*7lakhs)*(3/7)*0.45=39150 units
E=(0.17*7lakhs)*(2/5)*0.6=28560 units
2. D) The no. of units disposed = (0.16*7)*(4/9)*0.23=11448
3. A) Required average = [(0.18*7lakhs)*3/7] + [0.18*7*5/8] + [0.16*7*5/9] + [0.17*7*2/5]/4 = 0.54 + 0.7875 + 0.622 + 0.476/4 = 242550/4 = 60638
4. B) the total number of M1 sold by A and E together = [7lakhs*0.29*(4/7)*0.48] + [7lakhs*0.17*(3/5)*0.5] = 0.5568+0.357lakhs = 91380

7. C) Pattern of series is:
13 + 3 = 16; 16 + 5 = 21; 21 + 7 = 28 ≠ 27; 28 + 11 = 39; 39 + 13 = 52; 52 + 17 = 69
8. C) Pattern of series is: +81, +83, +85, +87, +89, +91
9. B) Pattern of series is: +25, +29, +33, +37, +41, +45
10. A) Pattern of series is:
11 × 11 × 11 = 1331; 13 × 13 × 13 = 2197; 15 × 15 × 15 = 3375; 17 × 17 × 17 = 4913 ≠ 4914; 19 × 19 × 19 = 6859
