Question 1:Â What would be the compound interest accrued on an amount of Rs. 9,000 at the rate of 11 p.c.p.a. in two years ?

a)Â Rs. 2089.90

b)Â Rs. 2140.90

c)Â Rs. 2068.50

d)Â Rs. 2085.50

e)Â None of these

Solution:

$C.I. = P [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^T – 1]$

= $9000 [(1 + \frac{11}{100})^2 – 1]$

= $9000 [(1.11)^2 – 1]$

= $9000 \times (1.2321 – 1)$

= $9000 \times 0.2321$ = Rs. $2,088.90$

Question 2:Â If $\frac{7x}{12}-12=23+\frac{3x}{8}$, find the value of x

a)Â 164

b)Â 168

c)Â 165

d)Â 180

e)Â 140

Solution:

ExpressionÂ :Â $\frac{7x}{12}-12=23+\frac{3x}{8}$

=> $\frac{7x}{12} – \frac{3x}{8} = 23 + 12$

=> $\frac{5x}{24} = 35$

=> $x = 7 * 24 = 168$

Question 3:Â 40, 20, 30, 75, 262.5, ?

b)Â 1182.25

c)Â 1281.25

d)Â 1161.25

e)Â 1811.25

Solution:

The pattern here followed isÂ :

40 * $\frac{1}{2}$ = 20

20Â * $\frac{3}{2}$ =Â 30

30Â * $\frac{5}{2}$ =Â 75

75Â * $\frac{7}{2}$ =Â 262.5

262.5Â * $\frac{9}{2}$ =Â 1181.25

Question 4:Â If $\frac{7x}{12}-12=23+\frac{3x}{8}$, find the value of x

a)Â 164

b)Â 168

c)Â 165

d)Â 180

e)Â 140

Solution:

ExpressionÂ :Â $\frac{7x}{12}-12=23+\frac{3x}{8}$

=> $\frac{7x}{12} – \frac{3x}{8} = 23 + 12$

=> $\frac{5x}{24} = 35$

=> $x = 7 * 24 = 168$

Question 5:Â 400, 800, 880, 896, 899.2, ?

a)Â 889.48

b)Â 898.48

c)Â 899.64

d)Â 899.84

e)Â None of these

Solution:

The pattern here followed isÂ :

400 + 400 = 800

800 + 400 * $\frac{1}{5}$ = 800 + 80 = 880

880 + 80 *Â $\frac{1}{5}$ =Â 880 + 16 = 896

896 + 16 *Â $\frac{1}{5}$ =Â 896 + 3.2 = 899.2

899.2 + 3.2 *Â $\frac{1}{5}$ =Â 899.2 + 0.64 =Â 899.84
