**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let side of the square be $x$ cm

=> Side of equilateral $\triangle$ PBC = $x$ cm

In right $\triangle$ ABC,

=> $(AC)^2=(AB)^2+(BC)^2$

=> $(AC)^2=(x)^2+(x)^2=2x^2$

=> $AC=\sqrt2x$

$\therefore$ $\ \frac{ar(\triangle PBC)}{ar(\triangle QAC)}$

= $[\frac{\sqrt3}{4}\times (x)^2]\div[\frac{\sqrt3}{4}\times (\sqrt2x)^2]$

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

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (C)**

Given : BC is the initial position of the ladder, and DE is its final position. So, DE = BC (as both are the same ladders)

To find : CD = $x=?$

Solution : In $\triangle$ ABC,

=> $cos(60^\circ)=\frac{AC}{BC}$

=> $\frac{1}{2}=\frac{10}{BC}$

=> $BC=10\times2=20$

Thus, $DE=BC=20$

Similarly, in $\triangle$ ADE,

=> $cos(30^\circ)=\frac{AD}{DE}$

=> $\frac{\sqrt3}{2}=\frac{x+10}{20}$

=> $x+10=10\sqrt3$

=> $x=10(\sqrt3-1)$

=> $x=10\times0.732=7.32$

$\therefore$ The ladder slipped **7.32 ft**

=> Ans – (C)

**3) Answer (C)**

Let speed of man in still water = $x$ km/hr and speed of stream = $y$ km/hr

Speed downstream = $(x+y)$ km/hr and speed upstream = $(x-y)$ km/hr

The man can row 35 km to and back in 10 hours 30 minutes.

Using, time = distance/speed

=> $\frac{35}{x+y}+\frac{35}{x-y}=10.5$

=> $\frac{1}{x+y}+\frac{1}{x-y}=\frac{10.5}{35}$

=> $\frac{1}{x+y}+\frac{1}{x-y}=0.3$ ————-(i)

Also, $\frac{5}{x+y}=\frac{4}{x-y}$

=> $5x-5y=4x+4y$

=> $5x-4x=4y+5y$

=> $x=9y$ ————-(ii)

Substituting above value in equation (i), we get :

=> $\frac{1}{9y+y}+\frac{1}{9y-y}=0.3$

=> $\frac{1}{10y}+\frac{1}{8y}=0.3$

=> $\frac{10+8}{80}=0.3y$

=> $0.3y\times80=18$

=> $y=\frac{18}{24}=0.75$

$\therefore$ Rate of flow of the stream = **0.75 km/hr**

=> Ans – (C)

**4) Answer (C)**

Let cost price of vegetables = Re 1/gm = Rs. 1000/kg

Selling price = after 20% profit = $1000+(\frac{20}{100}\times1000)=Rs.$ $1200$

Similarly, weight used while selling = $1000-(\frac{10}{100}\times1000)=900$ gm

=> Selling price = Rs. $\frac{1200}{900}=1.33$ per gm

$\therefore$ Profit % = $\frac{(1.33-1)}{1}\times100=33.33\%$

=> Ans – (C)

**5) Answer (D)**

$(5\sqrt5 x^3 – 81 \sqrt3 y^3) \div (\sqrt5 x – 3\sqrt3 y)$

Using the formula ,

$ (a^3 – b^3) = (a -b)(a^2 +ab +b^2)$

$(5\sqrt5 x^3 – 81 \sqrt3 y^3) \div (\sqrt5 x – 3\sqrt3 y) $

= $5x^2 + 3\sqrt15xy + 9\sqrt{3}y^2$

A = 5 , B = 27 , C=3$\sqrt15$

Putting these values in ,

$(6A + B – \sqrt{15} C)$ = 30 + 27 – 45 =12

So , the answer would be Option d)12.

**6) Answer (C)**

$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ has $5 + 3\surd3$ and so the other root is $5 – 3\surd3$ since these roots occur in pairs

sum of the roots= $5 + 3\surd3$+$5 – 3\surd3$

=10

Product of the roots=($5 + 3\surd3$)($5 – 3\surd3$)

=-2

Sum of the roots=-b/a

Product of the roots=c/a

-b/a=10

b=-10a c/a=-2

c=-2a

$\frac{(a^2 + b^2 + c^2)}{(a + b + c)}$

=$\frac{(a^2 + (-10a)^2 + (-2a)^2)}{(a -10a -2a)}$

=$\frac{(105(a)^2)}{( -11a)}$

=$\frac{(-105(a))}{( 11)}$

**7) Answer (C)**

Let A, B and C receive Rs. $a,b,c$ respectively

Total amount = $a+b+c=60500$ ————-(i)

According to ques, => $a=\frac{2}{9}(b+c)$

=> $9a=2(60500-a)$ [Using equation (i)]

=> $9a=121000-2a$

=> $9a+2a=11a=121000$

=> $a=\frac{121000}{11}=Rs.$ $11000$

Similarly, $b=\frac{3}{7}(a+c)$

=> $7b=3(60500-b)$

=> $7b+3b=10b=181500$

=> $b=Rs.$ $18150$

$\therefore$ C’s share = $60500-11000-18150=Rs.$ $31350$

=> Ans – (C)

**8) Answer (C)**

Area of square = $ a^2 $

a = side of the square

given area of the square = 121 $cm^{2}$

solving, a =11

same wire is bent in to the form of a circle

therefore, perimeter of the square = perimeter of the circle

perimeter of the square = 4a = $ 4 \times a = 44 cm $

44 = perimeter of the circle

$ 44 = 2 \times \frac{22}{7} \times r $

solving r = 7

area of the circle = $ \pi r^2 $

= $ \frac{22}{7} \times 7^2 $

= 154 $cm^{2}$

**9) Answer (B)**

It is given that $\triangle$ ABC and $\triangle$ DEF are equiangular triangles, thus corresponding angles are equal.

=> $\triangle$ ABC $\sim\triangle$ DEF

=> Ratio of perimeter = $\frac{AB}{DE}=$ $\frac{BC}{EF}=$ $\frac{AC}{DF}$ ————-(i)

Since, AL and DM are medians, => Ratio of perimeter of $\triangle$ ABC to $\triangle$ DEF = $\frac{AL}{DM}$ ———–(ii)

From, equations (i) and (ii), we get :

=> $\frac{BC}{EF}=\frac{AL}{DM}$

=> Ans – (B)

**10) Answer (A)**

Let cost price of the article = Rs. $100$

=> Marked price = $100+(\frac{40}{100}\times100)$

= $100+40=Rs.$ $140$

Discount % = 40%

=> Selling price = $140-(\frac{40}{100}\times140)$

= $140-56=Rs.$ $84$

$\therefore$ *Loss %* = $\frac{(100-84)}{100}\times100=16\%$

=> Ans – (A)
