b) 432 km

c) 648 km

d) 346 km

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let’s say marked price = 100

Then cost price = 64

and selling price = 88

discount = 24

%discount = $\frac{24}{64} \times 100$ = 37.5%

**2) Answer (D)**

Let the two numbers be a,b.

Hence a * b = L.C.M(a,b) * G.C.D(a,b)

It is given that a,b are co-primes, implies G.C.D(a,b) = 1

Hence from the above equation we get L.C.M(a,b) = a*b = 117

**3) Answer (D)**

Given:-

Numbers- First = 24

Second = x (suppose)

H.C.F. of numbers = 8

L.C.M. of numbers = 48

As we know:

H.C.F.* L.C.M. = Product of numbers

Hence

48*8 = 24*x

x = 16

**4) Answer (B)**

Given numbers can be resolved like ( 1- $\frac{1}{16}$), (1- $\frac{1}{20}$), ( 1- $\frac{1}{25}$), (1 – $\frac{1}{35}$)

hence smallest among them will be the one having maximum substraction from 1.

so answer is $\frac{15}{16}$

**5) Answer (A)**

Given LCM of two numbers is 30

Both numbers should be in the form of 30a and 30b where a and b are co-primes

In the following options 6,10 and 15 are factors of 30 but not 12 and so 12 cannot be the HCF

**6) Answer (C)**

Given numbers are 23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32

Since this series is in Arithmetic Progression, Average of the series will be Average of the middle two numbers = $\dfrac{27+28}{2} = 27.5$

**7) Answer (A)**

**8) Answer (C)**

One year ago, the ratio of the age (in years) of A to that of B = 4 : 3

After 3 year, the ratio of the age (in years) of A to that of B = 6 : 5

After 3 year, let the age of A and B are 6x and 5x.

ATQ,

$\frac{4x + 4}{3x + 4} = \frac{6}{5}$

20x + 20 = 18x + 24

2x = 4

x = 2

After 9 year, the ratio of the age (in years) of A to that of B = 6x + 6 : 5x + 6

6 $\times$ 2 + 6 : 5 $\times$ 2 + 6 = 18 : 16 = 9 : 8

**9) Answer (B)**

Let C.P. = $100x$

Profit = $\frac{20}{100} * 100x = 20x$

=> S.P. = $100x+20x = 120x$

Discount % = 20%

Let M.P. = $y$

=> $\frac{y-120x}{y}$ * 100 = 20

=> $4y = 600x$

=> M.P. = $150x$

When 30% discount is given => $\frac{30}{100} * 150x = 45x$

=> S.P. = $150x-45x = 105x$

=> Profit % = $\frac{105x-100x}{100x}$ * 100 = 5%

**10) Answer (D)**

Let’s say selling price of 20 books equals to 100

hence selling price of 15 books will be 75

cost price of 15 books is = 100 (given)

so loss percentage is 25

**11) Answer (D)**

Let’s say amounts in first vessel are 3x and 4x

in second vessel = 5y and 3y

So 7x = 8y (given) (eq. (1))

Pouring them together , new amounts will be 3x+5y and 4x+3y

so new ratio will be $\frac{3x+5y}{4x+3y}$ (eq. 2)

putting ratio of x and y from eq. (1) in eq. (2) and solving we will get new ratio as 59:53

**12) Answer (A)**

Let the third proportion be x.

$(\frac{x}{y}+\frac{y}{x}) : \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}$ :: $ \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}} : z$

$(\frac{x^2+y^2}{xy}) : \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}$ :: $ \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}: z$

$(\frac{\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}{xy}) : 1$ :: $\frac{ \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}}{z}$

$(\frac{\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}{xy}) $ :: $\frac{ \sqrt{x^{2}+y^{2}}}{z}$

z=xy

Option A is the correct answer.

**13) Answer (A)**

Meeting at the first time will be L.C.M. of time taken by individuals to complete

i.e. L.C.M. of 200,300,360 and 450 will be equal to 1800 sec.

**14) Answer (C)**

Let’s say initial $x$ number of people were there, hence in a day efficiency of 1 man will be = $\frac{1}{30x} $

For $x+6$ same people efficiency of 1 man will be = $\frac{1}{20(x+6)}$

and both should be equal.

$\frac{1}{30x} $ = $\frac{1}{20(x+6)}$

after solving it, we will get $x$ = 12

**15) Answer (B)**

Let the distance between City A and City B = $d$ km

Speed of first car = 36 km/hr and speed of second car = 48 km/hr

Let time taken by first car = $t$ hrs and time taken by second car = $(t – 3)$ hrs

Using, speed = distance/time for first car :

=> $\frac{d}{t} = 36$

=> $d = 36t$ ————–(i)

For second car, => $\frac{d}{t – 3} = 48$

Substituting value of $d$ from equation (i), we get :

=> $36t = 48t – 144$

=> $48t – 36t = 12t = 144$

=> $t = \frac{144}{12} = 12$ hrs

From equation (i), => $d = 36 \times 12 = 432$ km

=> Ans – (B)
