**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let the original price be Rs. 100.

New final price = 95% of (110% of Rs. 100) = Rs. 95/100×110/100×100 = Rs. 104.5

∴ Increase in price = 4.5%

**2) Answer (C)**

Return speed = $\frac{40}{100}$ x 150 = 60 kmph

Average speed = $\frac{2 \times 40 \times 60}{(40 + 60)}$

$\frac{4800}{100}$ = 48kmph

**3) Answer (A)**

If the numerator (assume to be x) is increased by 100%, it becomes 2x

and the denominator(assume to be y) is increased by 200%, it becomes 3y.

The new fraction is $\frac{4}{27}$ = $\frac{2x}{3y}$

Hence, simplifying we get fraction has $\frac{2}{7}$

**4) Answer (D)**

Let the original fraction be $\frac{X}{Y}$

After 400% increase, the numerator becomes $5X$ and after 500% increase, the denominator becomes $6Y$

Hence, the resulting fraction becomes $\frac{5X}{6Y}=\frac{10}{21}$

So, $\frac{X}{Y} = \frac{4}{7}$

**5) Answer (A)**

The number equals 8 times 17.25 = 138

Hence, 73% of the number equals 0.73*138 = 100.74

**6) Answer (D)**

Here, the salary is compounded every year.

Let salary be x.

22385=x(1+.1)^{2 }

x=18,500

**7) Answer (D)**

Let the salary in 2009 be x

Salary in 2010 = 1.1x

Salary in 2011 = 1.1x*1.1 = 1.21x

1.21x = 22385

x = 18500

**8) Answer (B)**

Let the number be x.

1/5th of number = 81

x/5 = 81

x=405

68% of 405 = 0.68*405 = 275.4

Hence, the correct option is B.

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the numerator be x and denominator be y.

Numerator is increased by 200% and denominator is increased by 300%, the fraction becomes (3x/4y)

But the fraction is $\frac{15}{26}$

(3x/4y) = $\frac{15}{26}$

Hence, (x/y) = 10/13

Option D is correct.

**10) Answer (A)**

Let x be monthly salary of Deepti Jain.

11%of x = 5,236.

x= 47600

Now total investment by Deepti Jain = Investment in Fixed Deposit + Investment in Mutual Funds + Investment in Insurance policies

= 19%+11%+7% = 37% of Salary = 37% of 47600

= 17,612

Total amount for 12 month = 12*17612 =2,11,344

**11) Answer (B)**

Number of sweets received by one student = 20% of total students =20% of 400 = 8

Number of sweets received by one teacher = 25% of total students =25% of 400 = 10

Total sweets distributed = Sweets received by students + Sweets received by teachers = 40*8+8*10 = 320+80 = 400

Hence, correct answer is option B.

**12) Answer (B)**

She still has 32% in cash which means she has spent 68%.

Let the total amount with her be x.

.68x = 44620 + 32764 = 77384

x=113800

The total amount she will be having is 1,13,800.

**13) Answer (B)**

Let Manas salary be x.

(2/3)rd of 12% of x = 2240

2/25 of x = 2240

x = 28000

Hence, Manas salary is 28000.

**14) Answer (C)**

Let the number be x.

15% of x + 10% of x = 70

25% of x = 70

x = 70*4

x = 280

Now, twice of 280 = 280*2 = 560

The correct option is option C.

**15) 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.
