**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Let the ages of P and R be 5x and 4x years respectively.

Age of S = 2(4x)+2 = 8x+2 years

Age of Q = 2(5x)-7 = 10x-7 years

Given, $\dfrac{P+Q}{2} = \dfrac{R+S}{2}$

⇒ $P+Q = R+S$

⇒ $5x+10x-7 = 4x+8x+2$

⇒ $15x-7 = 12x+2$

⇒ $3x = 9$

⇒ $x = 3$

Therefore, Age of S = 8x+2 = 8*3+2 = 24+2 = 26 years.

**2) Answer (C)**

Let the ages of wife and husband be 2x and 3x years respectively.

Age of son = $\dfrac{3x}{3}-1 = x-1$ years.

Age of grandfather = 150% of 2x+x-1 = $\dfrac{3}{2}\times(3x-1) = \dfrac{9x-3}{2}$ years

Given, $2x+3x+x-1+\dfrac{9x-3}{2} = 134$

⇒ $6x+\dfrac{9x-3}{2} = 135$

=> $21x-3 = 270$

⇒ $21x = 273$

⇒ $x = 13$

Therefore, Age of Son = $x-1 = 13-1 = 12$ years

**3) Answer (A)**

Let the present ages of P, Q and R be P, Q and R years respectively.

$\dfrac{P}{2}+\dfrac{R}{2}+10 = Q$

⇒ $P+R+20 = 2Q$

⇒ $P-2Q+R = -20$ → (1)

$\dfrac{Q}{4}+\dfrac{R}{2}+9 = P$

⇒ $Q+2R+36 = 4P$

⇒ $4P-Q-2R = 36$ → (2)

$\dfrac{P}{2}+\dfrac{Q}{8}+1 = R$

⇒ $4P+Q+8 = 8R$

⇒ $4P+Q-8R = -8$ → (3)

Solving (1) and (2),

$6P-5Q=-4$ → (4)

Solving (2) and (3),

$-12P+5Q=-152$ → (5)

Solving (4) and (5),

Q = 32

Therefore, The present age of Q = 32 years.

**4) Answer (A)**

Let the ages of A, B and C be A, B and C years respectively.

$A+\dfrac{B}{2}+2C = 105$

⇒ $2A+B+4C = 210$ → (1)

$2A+B+\dfrac{C}{2} = 84$

⇒ $4A+2B+C = 168$ → (2)

$\dfrac{A}{2}+2B+C = 84$

⇒ $A+4B+2C = 168$ → (3)

Solving (1) and (3)

7B = 126 ⇒ B = 18

Substituting B value in (2) and (3)

(2) ⇒ 4A+36+C = 168

⇒ 4A+C = 132 → (4)

(3) ⇒ A+72+2C = 168

⇒ A+2C = 96 → (5)

Solving (4) and (5), we get

A = 24 and C = 36

Therefore, The present ages of A, B and C are 24 years, 18 years and 36 years respectively.

**5) Answer (B)**

Let the present age of father be ‘f’ and the daughter be ‘d’

As per the given question,

f + d = 45 ….(1) and

(f – 8)(d – 8) = 3(f – 8)

Substitute equation (1) in the above equation

(f – 8)(37 – f) = 3(f – 8)

37 – f = 3 (or) f = 34

The age of the father after 4 years will be 34 + 4 = 38 years.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**6) Answer (D)**

$\Large\frac{169.87^{2}-13.94^{2}}{183.87}$ $\large+$ $\Large\frac{3211.96}{44.002}\simeq \frac{170^{2}-14^{2}}{184}$ $\large+$ $\Large\frac{3212}{44}$

$= \Large\frac{(170+14)(170-14)}{184}$ $+$ $73$

$= \Large\frac{184\times156}{184}$ $+$ $73$

$= 156+73 = 229$

**7) Answer (B)**

$17.33+142.895-76.795+235.008-4.779+38.102 \simeq 17+143-77+235-5+38$

Adding all positive terms:

$17+143+235+38 = 433$

Adding all negative terms:

$77+5 = 82$

$\therefore$ $17+143-77+235-5+38 = 433-82 = 351$

**8) Answer (B)**

$\Large\frac{383.96}{x} = \frac{x}{24.01}$

$\Rightarrow x^{2} \simeq 384\times24 = 9216$

$\therefore$ x $= \sqrt{9216} = 96$

**9) Answer (A)**

It is given that in each compartment maximum of 30 people can be accommodated and only two compartments can have the same number of people and maximum number of people have to be accommodated in the train and so 30 people should be in two compartments and in the other compartments we should have 29,28,27……12

So the total number of passengers=30+30+29+….12

=30+(30(31)/2)-(11(12)/2)

=30+465-66

=399+30

=429

Total number of compartments=20

Average=429/20

=21.45

**10) Answer (E)**

Given average for first 85 innings is 52

Sum of the runs scored by Sehwag for first 85 innings=85*52

=4420

Sum of the runs scored by him in first 90 innings =90*53

=4770

Runs scored by him from 86 to 90 innings=4770-4420

=350

Runs scored by him in first 100 innings=100*55

=5500

Runs scored by him in last 10 innings=5500-4770

=730

Required difference=730-350

=380

**11) Answer (E)**

let the four numbers be a,b,c and d

Given a+b+c+d=147*4

a+b+c+d=588

a=5b/17

b=c-36

c=b+36

c=(d/2)+52

b+36=(d+104)/2

2b+72=d+104

d=2b-32

(5b/17)+b+b+36+2b-32=588

(5b/17)+4b+4=588

((5b+68b)/17) =584

73b=584*17

b=136

a=40

c=172

d=240

LCM of 40,136,172,240 is 175440

**12) Answer (A)**

Present average=(P+P+12+P+36+P+60)/4

=(4P+108)/4

After ‘y’ years P+60 age person will leave so now average becomes

((P+y+P+12+y+P+36+y)/3)=(4P+108)/4

(3P+3y+48)/3 =P+27

P+y+16=P+27

y=27-16

y=11

Now (3P+6y+48)/3 =47

3P+6y+48=141

3P=141-48-66

3P=27

P=9

**13) Answer (D)**

In Q1 we have x*1.85*0.85=357

x=357/(1.85*0.85)

x=227

In Q2 we have x*1.82*0.88=355.5

x=355.5/(1.82*0.88)

x=220

Therefore Q1>Q2

**14) Answer (C)**

In Q1 we have Total CP=288

Let the number of apples be x

Total SP=14x

Therefore ((14x-288)/(288))*100=50/3

14x-288=48

14x=288+48

x=336/14

x=24

In Q2 we have CP=100

MP=100*1.4=140

SP=MP-discount

SP=140-140*(30/100)

SP=98

Loss percent=((100-98)/(100))*100

=2%

13 times the loss percent=26

Therefore Q2 > Q1

**15) Answer (E)**

In Q1 let the fraction be be (x/y)

Then as given (1.2x)/(0.75y)=2

x/y =5/4

sum=5+4=9

In Q2 let the fraction be (x/y)

Then as given (1.5x)/(0.4y)=3

x/y =4/5

sum=4+5=9

**16) Answer (C)**

Given, average marks of B and D in Maths is 102.5

Then, Total marks obtained by B and D in Maths = 205.

Marks obtained by A in Maths = 46.67% of 150 = $\dfrac{7}{15}\times150 = 70$

Marks obtained by C in Maths = 66.67% of 150 = $\dfrac{2}{3}\times150 = 100$

Marks obtained by E in Maths = 73.33% of 150 = $\dfrac{11}{15}\times150 = 110$

Therefore, Required average = $\dfrac{70+100+110+205}{5} = \dfrac{485}{5} = 97$

**17) Answer (B)**

Marks obtained by D in Chemistry = Marks obtained by D in Physics = 62.5% of 120 = $\dfrac{5}{8}\times120 = 75$

Marks obtained by D in English = 90% of 110 = 99

Therefore, Required ratio = 75 : 99 = 25 : 33.

**18) Answer (A)**

Marks obtained by C in Physics = 83.33% of 120 = $\dfrac{5}{6}\times120 = 100$

Then, Marks obtained by B in Physics = 110 ( C’s Physics marks : B’s Physics marks = 10 : 11)

Marks obtained by B in Chemistry = 73.33% of 120 = $\dfrac{11}{15}\times120 = 88$

Marks obtained by B in English = 80% of 110 = 88

Overall percentage of B = 82.2%

Total marks obtained by B = 82.2% of 500 = 411

Then, Marks obtained by B in Maths = 411 – (110+88+88) = 125

Therefore, Required percentage = $\dfrac{125}{150}\times100 = \dfrac{5}{6}\times100 = 83.33$%.

**19) Answer (B)**

Marks obtained by C in English = 81.81% of 110 = $\dfrac{9}{11}\times110 = 90$

Marks obtained by C in Maths = 66.67% of 150 = $\dfrac{2}{3}\times150 = 100$

Marks obtained by C in Physics = 83.33% of 120 = $\dfrac{5}{6}\times120 = 100$

Total marks obtained by C = 74% of 500 = 370

Then, Marks obtained by C in Chemistry = 370 – (90+100+100) = 80

Marks obtained by A in Chemistry = 58.33% of 120 = $\dfrac{7}{12}\times120 = 70$

Therefore, Difference = 80 – 70 = 10.

**20) Answer (C)**

Marks obtained by E in Maths = 73.33% of 150 = $\dfrac{11}{15}\times150 = 110$

Marks obtained by E in Physics = 37.5% of 120 = $\dfrac{3}{8}\times120 = 45$

Let marks obtained by E in English = x% of 110 = 1.1x

Then, Marks obtained by E in Chemistry = 1.1x+25

Overall percentage of E = 64%

Total marks obtained by E = 64% of 500 = 320.

110+45+1.1x+1.1x+25 = 320

=> 2.2x = 140

=> x = 63.63

Then, Marks obtained by E in Chemistry = 1.1x+25 = $1.1\times63.63 + 25 = 70+25 = 95$
