“Making a beeline” means to immediately head for something which is correct in this context.

The correct usage is nick of time which means “at the last possible instant.”

“On cloud nine” means extremely elated or delighted which is correct in this context.

“Passing the buck” means to give one’s responsibilty to someone else or to other group.

“Raked his brains” means “to think very hard.”

In this paragraph, the whole of the issue is in the past tense. So the quoted portion should also be in the past tense. “passes a bill that proposed” should be changed to “passed a bill that proposed.”

The sentence has been correctly framed and no correction is required.

“as more healthier options” is incorrect usage as there are two comparative forms of adjectives simultaneously. ““as healthier options”” is the correct usage of the sentence.

In these sentence, rural masses is plural and refer to people.”which was earlier unaware” showuld be replace by “who were earlier unaware”

The whole sentence is in the past tense but in the quoted portion present tense is used. Hence the sentence should read “Over the last few months while most industries were busy in restructuring operations cutting costs and firing the Indian pharmaceutical and healthcare industry was adding manpower and giving salary hikes.”

Reframing the question by assuming the unknown to be x.
38% of 4500 – 1640 = 25% of x (x/4)
= 1710 – 1640 = 70
x = 280

The question is written as 25639 – (5252+3232) = 25639 – 8484 = 17155

Now, let unknown be x.
283*56=15848
15848+252=16100
20x=16100
x=805

Let the present age of P be 8x and Q be 5x
After 4 years, P’s age = 8x + 4 and Q’s age = 5x + 4
$\frac{8x+4}{5x+4} = \frac{4}{3}$
$24x + 12 = 20x + 16$
$x = 1$
Present age of P = 8 years
Present age of Q = 5 years
Required ratio = 15 : 5 = 3 : 1

Since the ages of A, B, C, D are consecutive
Let the ages of A, B, C, D be n, n+1,n+2,n+3
$\frac{n+n+1+n+2+n+3}{4} = 49.5$ 4n+6 = 49.5*4 = 198
4n = 192
n = 48
Ages of A, B, C, D = 48, 49, 50 ,51
Product of ages of B and D = 49*51 = (50-1)(50+1) =$50^2-1$ = 2500-1 = 2449.

let A be 2x ,B be 2x +2 and C be 2x +4
Given that 4A = 3C
4(2x) = 3 (2x +4)
8x = 6x +12
2x = 12
x = 6
B = 2*6 + 2 = 14

Let the rate of interest on the principal be R.
So, 19800*R*3/100 = 7128
So, R = 12%
Hence, the compound interest on the same amount for the same time period equals 19800*1.12^3 – 19800 = 27817.57 – 19800 = Rs. 8017.57

The selling price is Rs. 16,756
Profit percentage is 18%
Let the cost price of the TV set be C.
So, C*118% = 16756
Or, C = 16756*100/118 = 14200

Let Amit’s speed of key depressions per hour be X.
So, Sumit’s speed of key depressions is 80% of X.
In total, the number of key depressions per hour by both of them is 1.8 X
The total number of key depressions in a day by both of them together is 1.8*8 = 14.4 X

This equals 576000/5 = 115200.
So, 14.4 * X = 115200
Or, X = 115200/14.4 = 8000

Let the marked price be Rs. 100.
Then cost price = 100 – 40 = Rs. 60
Selling price = 100+ 50 = Rs. 150
Profit = 150 – 60 = 90
Profit%=90/60×100=150%

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be:
where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points.B is in south-west direction from point D.
Thus, Ans – (B)

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be:
where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points.If we, point W is 3 m to the north of point A
Distance between W and B = 3+25 = 28.
Thus, Ans – (A)

Based on the above conditions, the points when plotted on a graph will be:
where the numbers in the brackets is the distance between two points.As seen from above, distance between B and M = 10+7 = 17
Thus, Ans – (A)
