**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Original count = 40,000

In the next 2 hours, it increases by 10%

=> Blood cell count after **2** hours = $40,000(1+\frac{10}{100})^2=40,000(\frac{11}{10})^2$

= $40,000\times\frac{121}{100}=48,400$

It decreases by 10% in next hour

=> Blood cell count after **3** hours = $48,400(1-\frac{10}{100})^1$

= $48,400\times\frac{9}{10}=43,560$

It remains constant in the next hour, => Blood cell count after **4** hours = $43,560$

In the next 2 hours, it increases by 5%

=> Blood cell count after **6** hours = $43,560(1+\frac{5}{100})^2=43,560(\frac{21}{20})^2$

= $43,560\times\frac{441}{400}=48,024.9\approx48,025$

=> Ans – (C)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

String of length 24 cm is bent into square, => Perimeter of square = 24 cm

Let side of square = $a$ cm

=> $4a=24$

=> $a=\frac{24}{4}=6$ cm

Let the other side of triangle be $b$ and hypotenuse be $c$ cm

=> Perimeter of triangle = $a+b+c=24$

=> $b+c=24-6=18$

=> $c=18-b$ ————(i)

Also, using Pythagoras Theorem

=> $6^2+b^2=c^2$

=> $c^2-b^2=36$ ———–(ii)

Solving equations (i) and (ii), we getÂ : $b=8$ cm and $c=10$ cm

$\therefore$ Area of triangle = $\frac{1}{2} ab$

= $\frac{1}{2}\times6\times8=24$ $cm^2$

=> Ans – (A)

**3)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let edge of cube be $2a$ cm and thus diameter of sphere = $2a$ cm

=> Radius of sphere = $\frac{2a}{2}=a$ cm

Volume of cube = $(2a)^3=8a^3$ $cm^3$ ———–(i)

Volume of sphere = $\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3$

= $\frac{4}{3} \piÂ \times(a)^3=\frac{4a^3\pi}{3}$ $cm^3$ ———–(ii)

Dividing equation (i) by (ii), we getÂ :

=> Required ratio = $\frac{8a^3}{\frac{4a^3\pi}{3}}$

= $\frac{8\times3}{4\pi}=\frac{6}{\pi}$

$\therefore$ Ratio of the volume of a cube to that of a sphere which will fit inside the cubeÂ = $6:\pi$

=> Ans – (C)

**4)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

let us write the equation in the form of $a^{2}-2ab+b^{2}$

$(6x-7)^{2}$=$36x^{2}-2*6x*7+7^{2}$

But in the question it is given as -87x+52 so we should add 3x-3 to it in order to make it a perfect square.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

let us write the equation in the form of $a^{2}-2ab+b^{2}$

$(4x-5)^{2}$=$16x^{2}-2*4x*5+5^{2}$

But in the question it is given as 38x+23 so we should add -2x+2 to it in order to make it a perfect square.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

let a=6x,b=5x,b=12y,c=14y

5x=12y,x=12/5y

$a^{2}$=$36*x^{2}$

$b^{2}$=$25*x^{2}$

bc=$5x*5x*14/12$

bc=$175/6*x^{2}$

$a^{2}:b^{2}:bc$=216:150:175

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

let a=7x,b=3x,b=9y,c=11y

3x=9y,x=3y,a=7x

b=3x,c=11x/3

$a^{2}$=$49*x^{2}$

$b^{2}$=$9*x^{2}$

bc=$3x*11x/3$

bc=$11*x^{2}$

$a^{2}:b^{2}:bc$=49:9:11

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

let us write the equation in the form of $a^{2}-2ab+b^{2}$

$(3x-5)^{2}$=$3x^{2}-2*3x*5+5^{2}$

But in the question it is given as 42 so we should add -17 to it in order to make it a perfect square.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Average speed=Total distance/Total time

Time=distance/speed

Let total distance=x

Time taken for one fourth distance=(x/4)/20=x/80

Time taken for half the distance=(x/2)/40=x/80

Time taken for the other one fourth=(x/4)/10=x/40

Total time=4x/80

=x/20

Average speed=(x)/(x/20)

=20 km/hr

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

let his speed be â€˜vâ€™ and time be â€˜tâ€™

Therefore vt=(3v/5)*(t+40)

5t=3t+120

2t=120

t=60 min

Now vt=(6v/5)(t1)

t1=5*t/6

t1=50 min

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

let the value be x

Increased by 10% it becomes 1.1x

Decreased by 10% it becomes 1.1x*0.9

=0.99x

Percentage to be increased to get the original value=(0.01x/0/0.99x)*100

=100/99 %

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

In a 20 litre mixture alcohol percent =60%

Therefore 20*60/100=12 litres

Water =20-12=8 litres

Total alcohol=12+4=16 litres

Water percentage=(8/24)*100

=33.33%

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Total marks in the exam =150

5% of the total marks=5*150/100

=7.5

Given marks=45

Therefore pass marks=45+7.5

=52.5

**14)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Given Selling Price = Rs.1200

Loss percentage = 20%

Then, Cost Price of the product = $1200 \times \dfrac{100}{100-20} = 1200 \times \dfrac{100}{80} = Rs.1500$

Required Profit percentage = 30%

Then, the required Selling Price = 130% of Rs.1500 = Rs.1950

**15)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

MP=1000

Three successive discounts of 20% each and so SP=1000*(80/100)(80/100)(80/100)

SP=512

Profit=512-500

=12

**16)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

MP=480

1.2*CP=480

CP=400

SP=MP-d

SP=480-d

$\frac{480-d-400}{400}\times100$=20

80-d=80

d=0

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Total cost price=15*10

=150

Total selling price=5*8+12*7+3*16

=40+84+48

=172

Profit percent=$\frac{172-150}{150}\times100$

=14.66%

**18)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

MP=400

SP=MP-discount

SP=400*90/100

SP=360

Cost price=360*10/13

Cost price=Rs 277
