**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Ruchika’s monthly income = Rs 32000

Ravina’s monthly income = 32000 x (1 + $\frac{15}{100}$) = 32000 x $\frac{115}{100}$ = Rs. 36800

Ramola’s monthly income = 3 x 36800 = 110400

Ramola’s annual income = 12 x 110400 = 1324800

**2) Answer (D)**

Total employees = 4800

45% of employees are males = $\frac{45}{100}$ x 4800 = 2160

60% of 2160 are equal to or older than 25

So 40% of 2160 are younger than 25 years = $\frac{40}{100}$ x 2160 = 864

**3) Answer (A)**

The maximum marks of each subjec is 105

80% of 105 = 84

Since there are 5 subjects

Average marks =$\frac{Sum\ of\ all\ the\ marks}{5} = 84$

Sum of all the marks = 84*5 = 420

89+92+98+81+Science = 420

360+Science = 420

Science = 420-360 = 60

**4) Answer (B)**

Now, let the mark scored by Vikram be x in Science.

Hence, $\frac{x+80+70+65+76}{5}$ = 72

x+291 = 360

x = 69

Vikram scored 69 marks in Science. Therefore, the correct option is option B.

**5) Answer (C)**

The ratio of ages of Rama and Shyama is 4: 5. Let their ages be 4x and 5x respectively. Five years later, their ages become 5x and 6x respectively. Hence, Their ages after 5 years = 4x + 5 and 5x + 5

But 4x + 5 : 5x + 5 = 5 : 6

So, 24x + 30 = 25x + 25

or x = 5

So, Rama’s current age = 4x = 4×5 =20

**6) Answer (B)**

Let the number be ‘n’.

According to question,

$\frac{5}{6}$n-35% of n = 1392.

$\frac{5}{6}n-\frac{35\times{n}}{100}=1392$.

$\frac{29\times{n}}{60}=1392$.

$n=2880$.

55 % of n = $\frac{55\times2880}{100}$.

=1584.

Hence, Option B is correct.

**7) Answer (B)**

REASONING

**8) Answer (C)**

Marks scored by Vidya = 350 + 296 = 646

Let the maximum marks be $x$

=> $\frac{76}{100} x = 646$

=> $x = \frac{646}{0.76} = 850$

**9) Answer (B)**

Surf gave 25% of her monthly salary to her mother.Remaining is 75%

15% of 75% was given for rent and 25% of 75% was kept for monthly expenses.

Remaining 60% of 75% was put in Bank account.

% of his monthly salary and 40% of remaining 65% of his monthly salary = 43290

Let his monthly salary be Rs.X

25% of X + 60% of 75% of X =42,000

0.25 X + 0.45 X =42,000

0.70 X = 42,000

X = 42,000 / 0.7 =60,000

Option B is the nearest answer.
