**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Number of neon lamps having a life of 900 hours or more = 70 + 55 + 35 = 160

Number of lamps having life less than 700 hours = 45 + 60 + 75 = 180

=> Required ratio = $\frac{160}{180}=8:9$

=> Ans – (B)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

in february = $ \dfrac {45}{360} \times 5400 $

$\Rightarrow 675 $

In april $ \dfrac{54}{360} \times 5400$

$\Rightarrow 810 $

again may = $\dfrac{77}{360} \times 5400 $

$\Rightarrow 1155 $

then total computers in February + April = 675 + 810 = 1485

soÂ % more than computers = $\dfrac{ 1485- 1155}{1155}\times 100$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{330}{1155} \times 100 $

$\Rightarrow 28.6 $ Ans

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The number of workers in the factory whose daily wages are Rs 450 or more but less than Rs600 is

from the given D I = 50 + 58+ 72 = 180 Ans

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Production of wheat in the state A, B, and EÂ = 500+375+475 = 1350

Production of rice in the state C, D, and E = 575+400+525 = 1500

InÂ % less of A,B and E from C, D and E =$ \dfrac {1500-1350}{1500} \times 100 $

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{150}{1500}\times 100 $

$\Rightarrow 10 $ % Ans

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total Degree of DepartmentÂ D and E = $ 54.8^{\circ} + 36^{\circ}$

$\Rightarrow 100.8 ^ {\circ}$

degree of department C = $ 1.22.8^{\circ}$

The employee of C more than total degree of Department D and E is = $122.8^{\circ} – 100.8^{\circ} = 22^{\circ}$

then in aÂ % = $\dfrac {22}{100.8}\times 100 $

$\Rightarrow 21.8 $ Ans

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

We need to findÂ X = E – (A + B)

total members of student = 9000

E = $ 9000 \times \dfrac {118.8}{360}$

$\Rightarrow 900 \times \dfrac{1188}{360}$

$\Rightarrow 2970 $

A = $\dfrac {36}{360}$ = 900

B = $ 9000\times \dfrac {64.8}{360}$

$\Rightarrow 90 \times {648}{36}$

$\Rightarrow 1620 $

X = E – (A + B)

$\Rightarrow 2970 + (900+1620)$

$\Rightarrow 450 $

then we can say x is lies between 440 and 460 from given option Ans

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

From the given DIÂ 50-60Â = 150 and 60-70 = 120

then total student = 150 + 120 = 270

according to questionÂ girls =$270 \times .60 = 162 $

again range 70 -80Â = 100 student and 80-90 = 80 student

then total student = 100 + 180 = 180

according to question girls = $ 180 \times 0.55 = 99 $

so total girls = 162 + 99 = 261 Ans

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Note that, the annual rate offered by company Q and p for the year 2000 is 9% and 7.5% form given Di in other words,

companyÂ Q is offeringÂ 1.5 more than p

so for a sum of Rs 3.5 lakhs company Q simply interest will accrue more than p

$\Rightarrow 3.5 lakh\times 1.5$%

$\Rightarrow 350000 \times \dfrac{1.5}{100}$

$\Rightarrow 350\times 15 $

$\Rightarrow 5250$ RsAns

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Total expenditure = 100%

total expenditure in transport is = 12.5%

so $12.5 \times x = 100 $ (according to question)

$\Rightarrow x $ = 8 Ans

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Given that principle amount = 400000

in the year 2000 Rate of interest = 9%

we know that Simple interest (SI) = $\dfrac{PRT}{100} = \dfrac { 400000 \times 9 \times 1} {100}$

$\Rightarrow 36000 $

total amount 400000 + 36000 = 436000

According to question principle amount for 2001 in company P

Simple intrest = $\dfrac{436000 \times 1 \times 6.5} {100}Â $

$\Rightarrow 436 \times 65 $

$\Rightarrow 28340 $

Total amount = 436000 + 28340Â = 464340 Ans

**11)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

The total number of cars produced inÂ 2013 and 2014 = 130 + 170 = 300

25% of the total number of cars produced inÂ 2013 and 2014 = 300 $\times \frac{25}{100}$ = 75

Production of A type of cars = 22 + 32 = 54

Production of B type of cars = 18 + 43 = 61

Production of C type of cars = 32 + 26 = 58

Production of D type of cars = 40 +Â 35 = 75

Production of E type of cars = 18 + 34 = 52

$\therefore$ D type of cars constitute exactly 25% of the total number of cars produced inÂ 2013 and 2014.

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

The percentage decrease in the production of A type of car in 2017, with reference to 2016 = $\frac{36 – 12}{36} \times 100 =Â \frac{24}{36} \times 100 = 66.66%

B type of car haveÂ increments inÂ the production in 2017, with reference to 2016.

The percentage decrease in the production of C type of car in 2017, with reference to 2016 = $\frac{44 – 40}{44} \times 100 = \frac{4}{44} \times 100 = 9.09%

The percentage decrease in the production of D type of car in 2017, with reference to 2016 = $\frac{38 – 22}{38} \times 100 = \frac{16}{38} \times 100 = 42.1%

The percentage decrease in the production of E type of car in 2017, with reference to 2016 = $\frac{50 – 28}{50} \times 100 = \frac{22}{50} \times 100 = 44%

A type of car have maximum decrements in the production in 2017, with reference to 2016.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The total number of computers sold by dealer A during February to June = 94 + 85 + 108 + 98 + 95 = 480

Total number of computers sold by all the dealers in June = 95 + 108 + 102 + 91 = 396

Required percentage = $\frac{480 – 396}{396} \times 100 =Â \frac{84}{396} \times 100$ = 21.2%

**14)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total production of all types of motorcycles in 2017 = 80 + 96 + 100 + 104 = 380

25% of the total production of all types of motorcycles in 2017 = 380 $\times \frac{25}{100}$ = 95

During 2015, the production of D type of motorcycle was more than 25% of the total production of all types of motorcycles in 2017

**15)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Number ofÂ girls have a height of 135 cm or more but less than 150 cm = 20 + 29 + 15 = 64

**16)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

The average arrears received by all the employees = sum of terms/number of terms = $\frac{5500 + 4500 + 4000 + 3000 + 1500}{5}$ = 18500/5 = 3700

Required number = 3

$\therefore$ 3Â employees(A, B and C) got more arrears than the average arrears received by all the employees.

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Number ofÂ families which have monthly salary less than â‚¹40,000 = 6 + 12 + 9 = 27

**18)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Total number of student = 32 + 18 + 28 + 45 + 42 + 42 + 13 + 30 = 250

Total number of student in Arts, commerce, vocational =Â 28 + 45 + 42 + 42 + 13 + 30 = 200

Required percentage = $\frac{200}{250} \times 100 = 80%

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The total fertilizer production in company II = 180 + 179 + 160 + 167 + 150 = 836

20% of theÂ total fertilizer production in company II =Â 836 $\times \frac{20}{100}$ = 167.2

$\therefore$ In April monthÂ company II have a contribution of approximately 20% in the total fertilizer production.

**20)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Trade balance (in Rs.crores) in 2016 = 130 – 125 = 5

Trade balance (in Rs.crores) in 2017 = 150 – 145 = 5

Trade balance (in Rs.crores) in 2018 = 175 – 165 = 10

Trade balance (in Rs.crores) in 2019 = 200 – 188 =Â 12

Average trade balance (in Rs.crores) = $\frac{5 + 5 + 10 + 12}{4}$ = 32/4 = 8

**21)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total expenditure on all the items in 2014 = 284 + 98 + 3 + 23.4 + 74 = 482.4

Total expenditure on all the items in 2018 = 425 + 141 + 3.96 +Â 49.4 + 108 = 727.36

Required percentage = $\frac{482.4}{727.36} \times 100 = 66.32%

**22)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Number ofÂ students which have a height of 165 cm or more = total student – less than 165 = 40 – 25 = 15

**23)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Number ofÂ workers earn less than â‚¹1,100 in a day = 4 + 15 + 10 + 10 = 39

**24)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total number of boys = 18 + 47 + 40 +Â 30 = 135

Total number of girls = 35 + 25 + 45 + 10 = 115

The ratio of the total number of boys to that of girls in the college = 135 : 115 = 27 : 23

**25)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Salary of A = 52000

Other income = total – salary

Other income of A = 66000 – 52000 = 14000

Salary of B = 48500

Other income of B = 59000 – 48500 = 10500

Salary of C = 42000

Other income of C = 52000 – 42000 = 10000

Salary of D = 31000

Other income of D = 40000 – 31000 = 9000

Salary of E = 25000

Other income of E = 31700 – 25000 = 6700

$\therefore$ 2Â employees(A and B) got more than a total of â‚¹10,000 as income other than salary.
