Instructions

In each of these questions, one question is given followed by data in three statements I, II and III. You have to study the question and the data in statements and decide the question can be answered with data in which of the Statements and mark your answer accordingly.

Question 9:Â What is the cost of flooring the rectangular hall?
Statement: I. Length of the rectangle is 6 metres.
II. Breadth of the rectangle is two-third of its length.
III. Cost of flooring the area of 100 $cm^{2}$ is Rs. 45/-.

a)Â Only I and III

b)Â Only II and III

c)Â All I, II and III

d)Â Question Cannot be answered with data in all three statements

e)Â None of these

Question 10:Â What is the amount invested in Scheme â€˜â€™Bâ€™â€™?

II. Amount invested in Scheme â€˜Aâ€™ is 40% of the total amount invested.
III. Amount invested in Scheme â€˜Aâ€™ is Rs. 45,000/-.

a)Â Only I and II

b)Â Only I and III

c)Â Only II and III

d)Â All I, II and III

e)Â Only III and either I or II

If a,b,c,d and e are salaries of A, B, C, D and E respectively the a+b+c+d+e= 65,780*5
From statement I we get, b+c = 88,545 and from statement II we get d+e=59,020
Both the statements are needed to get the salary of A.
Hence, option C is correct.

From problem statement we get to know that,
(x/y)=(6/5) where x and y are Anand and Sujeet’s age respectively.

Statement A introduces a new variable i.e Sandeep’s age. However, we don’t have data to form two equations to find all the three variables.
Statement B gives data in the form of known variables i.e Anand and Sujeet’s age.
Hence, we can evealute the two equations to get both the variables.
Option B is correct

Let CP be Cost price and SP be the Selling Price.

From I we can get that, 5CP=4SP
We know SP for one watch. Hence CP can be calculated.
Once, CP is known profit can be calculated byProfit = SP-CP

From II we can get that, 25% of profit is gained by selling each watch.
We can Profit = SP – CP i.e 0.25CP = SP – CP
From this equation, CP can be calculated and thereby Profit.

Data in both statement is needed to find the code for ‘walks’
Now, â€˜she walks fastâ€™ is written as â€˜he ka toâ€™ and â€˜she learns fastâ€™ is written as â€˜jo ka heâ€™.
Therefore code for she, fast will be he and ka.
Code for walks is ‘to’.
Data in both statement is needed to answer teh question.
Therefore, the correct answer is option E.

Data in statement I gives the position of M with respect to J and T. Statement to gives relative position between L and R. However we need more data which establishes relation between L and M to find the order in which they reached the station.
Hence, more data is needed.

N is the brother of M who is the daughter of K which means that K can be father/mother of N.
F is the husband of K. Hence, K is female.
Therfore we can say that K is mother of N.
Data in both ther statement is necessary to answer the question.

From statement I we get that in the class of 42 children Suneeta is 29th from the bottom. Hence, Suneeta is 14th from top.
Statement II talks about position of Sunneta with respect to Samir but Samir’s position is unknown.
Hence, the correct answer is option A.

Statement I is:
P is to the West of H which is to the south of Q. We can deduce that P is to South westof Q.

From statement II:
F is to the West of Q and to the North of P. We can deduce that P is to south west of Q.

Therefore, data in both statement is sufficient to give us position of P with respect to Q.
Hence, the correct answer is option C.

Using statements 1 and 2, we get l = 6 and b = 4

Area = 6*4 = 24

Using statement 3, cost of flooring 100$m^2$ = 45

Cost of flooring 24$m^2$ = 45*0.24 = 10.8
