Solutions:

1) Answer (B)

There were 30 naya mixture in 97′ which will also work in 98′
,thus we have 50 new mixtures in 98′ . Now in 99′ 20% of 30
i.e. 6 are thrown in junk . So in 99′ we have 24 + 50 = 74
naya mixtures of previous years. So naya mixture grinder
purchased in 99′ is 124-74 = 50. Hence option b.

2) Answer (B)

Number of Naya mixer-grinders were disposed off by the end
of 1999 are 6 and at the end of 2000 are 10. So in total 16
naya mixer disposed off.

3) Answer (D)

Since 10 purana were disposed off in 1997, it means 50 new
have been bought in 1995, which implies that 70 were
already in use. The breakup of 70 purana cannot be
determined. So the number of purana disposed in 2000
cannot be calculated.

4) Answer (A)

Purana mixer-grinders were purchased in 1999 = 236 – 222 +Disposed in 1999
= 236-222 + 20%(Purana mixer-grinders were purchased in 1997)
= 236 – 222 + 20%(182 – 162 + 10) = 236- 222 + 6 = 20.
Hence option D.
