**Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Required ratio = (40-34)/(34-30)=6/4=3/2

**2) Answer (B)**

Let the original price be Rs. 100.

New final price = 95% of (110% of Rs. 100) = Rs. 95/100Ã—110/100Ã—100 = Rs. 104.5

âˆ´ Increase in price = 4.5%

**3) Answer (E)**

Let the numbers be a,b,c,d,e.

Hence (a+b+c+d+e)/5=49

(a+b)/2=48, a+b=96.

(d+e)/2=28,d+e=56

c=245-96-56=93

**4) Answer (D)**

Let speed of train be x and speed of car be y.

Car covers 520km in 8 hrs, it’s speed= 520/8= 65km/hr

Speed of train = 3 * 65= 195km/hr

Distance covered by train in 13 hrs = 13*195= 2535km

**5) Answer (A)**

The number equals 8 times 17.25 = 138

Hence, 73% of the number equals 0.73*138 = 100.74

**6) Answer (D)**

Here, the salary is compounded every year.

Let salary be x.

22385=x(1+.1)2

x=18,500

**7) Answer (A)**

The average weight of 21 boys is 64 Kgs.

The average weight of 21 boys and the teacher is 65 Kgs.

So, total weight of 21 boys is 21*64 = 1344

The weight of 21 boys and the teacher = 22*65 = 1430

Hence, the weight of the teacher is 1430 – 1344 = 86 Kgs

**8) Answer (A)**

Let the maximum aggregate marks be x

780/x – 728/x = 5/100

52/x = 1/20

x = 52*20 = 1040

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the salary in 2009 be x

Salary in 2010 = 1.1x

Salary in 2011 = 1.1x*1.1 = 1.21x

1.21x = 22385

x = 18500

**10) Answer (B)**

Let the number be x.

1/5th of number = 81

x/5 = 81

x=405

68% of 405 = 0.68*405 = 275.4

Hence, the correct option is B.
