**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

January 1, 1950 to December 31, 1959 is a period of 10 years or 20 half years.

The person X after 1st year gets Rs. 300 in next year he gets Rs. 330 and so on.

So his earning is in AP with 10 300+330+360+…

Similarly earning of Y is in AP with 20 terms 200+215+230+245…. .

So, the total earnings of X equals 12*(300+330+….10 terms) = 52200

The total earnings of Y equals 6*(200+215+230+…20 terms) = 41100

So, the total earnings of the two equals 52200+41100 = 93300

**2) Answer (D)**

Ratio of investment of X : Y : Z = 5 : 4 : 2

To find the share of profit earned by X (or anyone), we need to find the total profit earned.

From statement III : Average profit for 3 years = Rs. 2750

=> Total profit = $2750 \times 3$ = Rs. 8250

Amount received by X = $\frac{5}{(5+4+2)} \times 8250$ = Rs. 3750

Thus, statements I and II are redundant.

=> Ans – (D)

**3) Answer (A)**

Let A’s investment = $Rs. x$

=> B’s investment = $Rs. 1.5x$

=> C’s investment = $Rs. 0.5x$

Ratio of shares of A,B and C

= $(x \times 12) : (1.5x \times 9) : (0.5x \times 6)$

= $24 : 27 : 6 = 8 : 9 : 2$

Total profit = Rs. 23,750

Since, A is the working partner, he will receive 10 %

=> $\frac{10}{100} \times 23750 = Rs. 2,375$

Profit left = 23750 – 2375 = 21375

Thus, A’s share = $\frac{8}{8 + 9 + 2} \times 21375$

= $8 \times 1125 = 9000$

$\therefore$ Total amount received by A = $2,375 + 9,000 = Rs. 11,375$

**4) Answer (C)**

Given that M pays $\dfrac{3}{7}th$ of the total cost of the car.

Let M pays Rs.3x for the car out of Rs.7x

Then, N pays Rs.4x

Given, M pays Rs.31540 less than N.

=> 4x – 3x = 31540

=> x = 31540

Then, Cost of the car = Rs.7x = 7*31540 = Rs.220780

**5) Answer (A)**

Total profit to be distributed = Rs. 1,44,000

Ratio of profit divided among Akram, Bipin and Chintan = 3 : 2 : 7

Thus, amount that Chintan will get = $\frac{7}{(3+2+7)} \times 144,000$

= $\frac{7}{12} \times 144,000$

= $7 \times 12000 = Rs$ $84,000$

=> Ans – (A)

**6) Answer (D)**

Ratio of profits earned by Ram : Shyam = 4000 : 6000

= 2 : 3

If profit < 2,00,000

% of profit earned by Shyam = $\frac{3}{5} \times$ 100 = 60%

If 2,00,000 < profit < 4,00,000, he gets 20 % and 60 % of the remaining profit.

% of profit earned by Shyam = 20% + .80 $\times$ 60% = 68%

If profit > 4,00,000

% of profit earned by Shyam = 35 % + .65 $\times$ 60% = 74%

Now, for first 2,00,000 profit earned by Shyam = $\frac{60}{100} \times$ 2,00,000 = Rs. 1,20,000

For second 2,00,000 profit earned by Shyam = $\frac{68}{100} \times$ 2,00,000 = Rs. 1,36,000

Let total profit earned by them = Rs. (4,00,000 + $x$)

=> From $Rs. x$ profit, Shyam received = 3,67,000 – 1,20,000 – 1,36,000 = Rs. 1,11,000

=> $\frac{74}{100} \times x$ = 1,11,000

=> $x$ = 1,11,000 $\times \frac{100}{74}$ = 1,50,000

$\therefore$ Total profit = 4,00,000 + 1,50,000 = Rs. 5,50,000

**7) Answer (C)**

Total profit = Rs. 1,87,200

Ratio of profit divided among Amit , Brihmohan and Chiranjeev = 1 : 2 : 5

=> Amount with Chiranjeev = $\frac{5}{(1 + 2 + 5)} \times 187200$

= $5 \times 23400 = Rs. 1,17,000$

=> Ans – (C)

**8) Answer (D)**

Given that 4 times the amount received by A is equal to 6 times the amount received by B and 11 times the amount received by C.

This can be written as,

4A = 6B or A : B = 3 : 2 ….(1) and

4A = 11C or A : C = 11 : 4 ….(2)

Multiply equation (1) with 11 and equation (2) with 3 we get,

A :B = 33 : 22 and A : C = 33 : 12 (or)

A : B : C = 33 : 22 : 12 (or) 66 : 44 : 24

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (B)**

Let the total profit be P. Shyam will get 0.2P for managing the business rest 0.8 P will be divided in the ratio of 2:4:3

i.e. shyam will get 0.2P+0.8P*$\frac{2}{9}$ and Gopal and Madhur will together get 0.8P*$\frac{7}{9}$

Given that 0.8P*$\frac{7}{9}$ – (0.2P+0.8P*$\frac{2}{9}$) = 2200

Solving we get P = 9000 therefore profit madhur will get is $0.8*9000*\frac{1}{3}$ = 2400

Therefore our answer is option ‘B’

**10) Answer (B)**

A and B jointly invest Rs. 2,100 and Rs. 3,100 respectively

Ratio of profit received by A and B = 2100 : 3100

=> A : B + 21 : 31

Total profit = Rs. 1,040

But A gets 25 % of the profit separately.

=> Amount received by A separately = $\frac{25}{100} \times 1040 = Rs. 260$

Profit left = $1040 – 260 = 780$

Now, profit received by B = $\frac{31}{21 + 31} \times 780$

= $31 \times 15 = 465$

Profit received by A = 780 – 465 = 315

$\therefore$ Total amount received by A = $260 + 315 = Rs. 575$

Total amount received by B = $Rs. 465$
