**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Let radius of the circle = $r$ cm

I : Perimeter = $2 \pi r = 88$

=> $2 \times \frac{22}{7} \times r = 88$

=> $r = 88 \times \frac{7}{44} = 14$ cm

$\therefore$ Area = $\pi r^2 = \frac{22}{7} \times (14)^2$

= $22 \times 2 \times 14 = 616 cm^2$

Thus, statement I alone is sufficient.

II : Diameter = 28 cm

=> Radius, $r = \frac{28}{2} = 14$ cm

$\therefore$ Area = $\pi r^2 = \frac{22}{7} \times (14)^2$

= $22 \times 2 \times 14 = 616 cm^2$

Thus, statement II alone is sufficient.

**Thus, either statement alone is sufficient.**

**2) Answer (C)**

Let rate of interest = $R \%$

I : P = Rs. 25,000 and time period = 2 years

=> $S.I. = \frac{P \times R \times T}{100}$

= $\frac{25000 \times R \times 2}{100} = 500 R$

Interest obtained from compound interest = $P [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^T – 1]$

=> $(500R + 250) = 25000 [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^2 – 1]$

=> $250 (2R + 1) = 25000 [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^2 – 1]$

=> $2R + 1 = 100 (1 + \frac{R^2}{100^2} + \frac{2 R}{100} – 1)$

=> $2R + 1 = \frac{R^2}{100} + 2R$

=> $R^2 = 100 \times 1 = 100$

=> $R = \sqrt{100} = 10 \%$

Thus, statement I alone is sufficient.

II : Let original sum = simple interest = $Rs. P$ and time period = 10 years

=> $S.I. = \frac{P \times R \times T}{100}$

=> $P = \frac{P \times R \times 10}{100}$

=> $R = \frac{100}{10} = 10 \%$

Thus, statement II alone is also sufficient.

**Thus, either statement alone is sufficient.**

**3) Answer (D)**

To find the number of plants planted, we need to find the number of columns and rows and then multiply them.

Let number of columns = $c$ and number of rows = $r$

(I) : Number of columns is 4 more than rows

=> $c – r = 4$

But, we do not know the exact value. So, statement I alone is not sufficient.

(II) : In each column ,number of trees are even, => number of rows are even in number

Again, we do not know the exact value. So, statement II alone is not sufficient.

Combining above statements, we still do not know the exact number of columns and rows. So, statement I and II together are not sufficient.

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (E)**

I : Let base of the triangle = $4x$ m

=> Height of triangle = $\frac{3}{4} \times 4x = 3x$ m

There is no other info, so I alone is insufficient.

Similarly, II alone is also insufficient.

Combining both statements, and using pythagoras theorem, we get :

=> $(3x)^2 + (4x)^2 = (5^2)$

=> $9x^2 + 16x^2 = 25$

=> $x^2 = \frac{25}{25} = 1$

=> $x = \sqrt{1} = 1$

=> Base = 4 m and height = 3 m

$\therefore$ Area of triangle = $\frac{1}{2} \times 3 \times 4 = 6 m^2$

**Thus, both statements together are sufficient.**

**5) Answer (E)**

I : Let present age of son = $x$ years

=> Present age of father = $5x$ years.

There is no other information, so statement I is not sufficient.

Similarly, II alone is not sufficient.

Combining both statements, we get :

=> $(5x – 5) = 15 (x – 5)$

=> $5x – 5 = 15x – 75$

=> $15x – 5x = 75 – 5$

=> $10x = 70$ => $x = \frac{70}{10} = 7$

$\therefore$ father’s age = $5 \times 7 = 35$ years.

**Thus, both statements together are sufficient.**

**6) Answer (E)**

Statement I : Let monthly salary of X = Rs. $9x$ and Y = Rs. $7x$

Statement II : $X – Y = 16,000$

Combining above statements, we get :

=> $9x – 7x = 16,000$

=> $x = \frac{16,000}{2} = 8,000$

$\therefore$ X’s annual salary = $12 \times 9x = 108x$

= $108 \times 8,000$ = Rs. $8,64,000$

Thus, both statements together are required to answer the question.

**7) Answer (E)**

Clearly, both statements are required.

Let cost price = Rs. $100x$

Selling price after profit of 20% = $\frac{120}{100} \times 100x$

= Rs. $120x$

From statement II : Selling price = Rs. 5,016

=> $120x = 5016$

=> $x = \frac{5016}{120} = 41.8$

$\therefore$ Cost price = $100 \times 41.8$

= Rs. $4,180$

Thus, both statements together are required to answer the question.

**8) Answer (E)**

We need both dimensions and cost of fencing to answer the question. Thus, we require both statements.

Let breadth of the plot = $x$ m

=> Length = $(x + 15)$ m

=> Area of plot = $x (x + 15) = 1134$

=> $x^2 + 15x – 1134 = 0$

=> $x^2 + 42x – 27x – 1134 = 0$

=> $x (x + 42) – 27 (x + 42) = 0$

=> $(x + 42) (x – 27) = 0$

=> $x = 27 , -42$

As length of the plot cannot be negative => Breadth = $x = 27$ m

=> Length = $27 + 15 = 42$ m

Perimeter = $2 (42 + 27) = 2 \times 69$

= $138$ m

$\therefore$ Cost of fencing = $138 \times 180$

= Rs. $24,840$

Thus, Both statements together are required to answer the question.

**9) Answer (D)**

Statement I : Sum of marks in History, Geography and Chemistry

= $3 \times 75 = 225$

We cannot find physics marks from statement I alone

Statement II : Sum of marks in History, Geography and Physics

= $3 \times 78 = 234$

Again, from this statement alone, we cannot find physics marks.

Combining above statements, if we subtract equation(1) from (2), we get :

=> Physics – chemistry = 234 – 225 = 9

Again, we cannot find Physics marks even after combining both statements.

**10) Answer (C)**

Statement I : Lat males in city A = $27x$ and females in city A = $23x$

=> $27x – 23x = 1,00,000$

=> $x = \frac{1,00,000}{4} = 25,000$

$\therefore$ Total population of city A = $27x + 23x = 50x$

= $50 \times 25,000 = 12,50,000$

=> Statement I alone is sufficient.

Statement II : Let population of city B = $100x$

=> Population of city A = $\frac{80}{100} \times 100x = 80x$

=> $100x – 80x = 3,12,500$

=> $x = \frac{3,12,500}{20} = 15,625$

$\therefore$ Population of city A = $80 \times 15,625 = 12,50,000$

=> Statement II alone is sufficient.

$\therefore$ Either statement alone is sufficient.

**11) Answer (D)**

Clearly, no relation between the speeds of both train is given.

Thus, we cannot find the length of train B.

Thus, even both statements together are insufficient.

**12) Answer (D)**

Let length of rectangle = $l$ and breadth = $b$

From I & II : Base = 40 cm and height = 50 cm

=> Area of triangle = $\frac{1}{2} \times 40 \times 50$

= $20 \times 50 = 1000 cm^2$

Also, area of rectangle = area of triangle

=> Area of rectangle = $l \times b = 1000 cm^2$

But, there is no relation between length and breadth, so we cannot find length of rectangle.

**Thus, even both statements together are insufficient.**

**13) Answer (C)**

C.I. = $P [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^T – 1]$

I : Interest = 100 and sum = 1000 and time = 1 year

=> $100 = 1000 [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^1 – 1]$

=> $\frac{100}{1000} = [(1 + \frac{R}{100}) – 1]$

=> $\frac{R}{100} = \frac{1}{10}$

=> $R = \frac{100}{10} = 10 \%$

$\therefore$ C.I. after 3 years = $1000 [(1 + \frac{10}{100})^3 – 1]$

= $1000 [(\frac{11}{10})^3 – 1]$

= $1000 [\frac{1331}{1000} – 1] = 1000 \times \frac{331}{1000}$

= $331$

Thus, I alone is sufficient.

II : Sum = 1000 , rate = $R \%$

S.I. after 2 years = $\frac{P \times R \times T}{100}$

= $\frac{1000 \times R \times 2}{100} = 20R$

C.I. after 1st year = $\frac{R}{100} \times 1000 = 10R$

C.I. after 2nd year = $10R + \frac{R}{100} \times 10R = 10R + \frac{R^2}{10}$

=> Required difference = 10

=> $(10R + 10R + \frac{R^2}{10}) – (20R) = 10$

=> $\frac{R^2}{10} = 10$

=> $R^2 = 10 \times 10 = 100$

=> $R = \sqrt{100} = 10 \%$

$\therefore$ C.I. after 3 years = $1000 [(1 + \frac{10}{100})^3 – 1]$

= $1000 [(\frac{11}{10})^3 – 1]$

= $1000 [\frac{1331}{1000} – 1] = 1000 \times \frac{331}{1000}$

= $331$

Thus, II alone is sufficient.

**Thus, either statement alone is sufficient.**

**14) Answer (E)**

2 digit numbers where digit at unit place is smaller :

I : Difference between the two digits is 5

=> 2 digit numbers can be = 61 , 72 , 83 , 94

II : Sum of the two digits is 7

=> 2 digit numbers can be = 70 , 61 , 52 , 43

I & II : Clearly, the common number from the above two sets = 61

**Thus, I & II together are sufficient.**

**15) Answer (D)**

Clearly, we have to use both equations.

Let distance between A and B = $d$ km

Let speed of boat in still water = $x$ kmph

and speed of current = $y$ kmph

Using, $time = \frac{distance}{speed}$

=> $\frac{d}{x + y} = 2$ ———Eqn(1)

and $\frac{d}{x – y} = 4$ ———Eqn(2)

Dividing equation (2) by (1)

=> $\frac{x + y}{x – y} = \frac{4}{2}$

=> $x + y = 2x – 2y$

=> $2x – x = y + 2y$

=> $x = 3y$

=> $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{3}{1}$

$\therefore$ Ratio between speed of boat and current is known and not the exact value.

**Thus, even both statements together are insufficient.**
