Question 1:Â Sachinâ€™s income is 25% more than Dileepâ€™s income. By how much percentage is Dileepâ€™s income less than Sachinâ€™s income ?

a)Â 15%

b)Â 20%

c)Â 18%

d)Â 22%

1)Â AnswerÂ (B)

Solution:

Let the income of Sachin = S

Income of Dileep = D

Given,Â  Sachin’s income is 25% more than Dileep’s income

$=$> Â $\text{S}=\frac{125}{100}\text{D}$

$=$> Â $\text{S}=\frac{5}{4}\text{D}$

$\therefore\$Required Percentage = $\frac{S-D}{S}\times100$

=Â $\frac{\frac{5}{4}D-D}{\frac{5}{4}D}\times100$

= $\frac{\frac{D}{4}}{\frac{5D}{4}}\times100$

=Â $\frac{1}{5}\times100$

= 20%

$\therefore\$Dileep’s income is 20% less than Sachin’s income

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Question 2:Â The volume of the water in two tanks, A and B,is in the ratio of 6 : 5. The volume of water in tank A is increased by 30%. By what percentage should the volume of water in tank B be increased so that both the tanks have the same volume of water?

a)Â 56%

b)Â 30%

c)Â 18%

d)Â 15%

2)Â AnswerÂ (A)

Solution:

Let the volume of water in tanks A and B are $6p$ and $5p$ respectively

Volume of water in tank A after increasing 30% = $\frac{130}{100}\times6p=7.8p$

Volume of water to be increased in tank B to have same volume as tank A = $7.8p-5p=2.8p$

$\therefore\$Percentage increase in volume of water in tank B = $\frac{2.8p}{5p}\times100=56\%$

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

Question 3:Â Sachin scored 120 runs, which included 6 boundaries and 4 sixes. What percentage of his total score did he make by running between the wickets?

a)Â $45 %$

b)Â $46 \frac{4}{9} %$

c)Â $60 %$

d)Â $33 \frac{1}{3} %$

3)Â AnswerÂ (C)

Solution:

Total runs scored by Sachin =120

Runs scored in boundaries =Â $\left(6\times4\right)+\left(4\times6\right)=24+24=48$

Runs scored by running between wickets =Â $120-48=72$

$\therefore\$Required Percentage = $\frac{72}{120}\times100=60\%$

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 4:Â Anu spends 68% of her monthly income. If her monthly income increases by 20% and her monthly savings increase by $9\frac{3}{8}\%$, then the percentage increase in her monthly expenditure is:

a)Â 20%

b)Â 25%

c)Â 22%

d)Â 32%

4)Â AnswerÂ (B)

Solution:

Let the initial salary of Anu be 100%.

Initially Expenditure of Anu = 68%

Saving = 100 -68 = 32%

Salary after 20% increment =Â Â 100 $\times 120/100 = 120%$

Saving after increment = 32% $\times \frac{100 +Â 9\frac{3}{8}}{100}$ = 32% $\times \frac{109.375}{100}$ = 35%

Expenditure = 120 – 35 = 85%

Percentage increase in her monthly expenditure = $\frac{85 – 68}{68} \times 100 =Â \frac{17}{68} \times 100$ = 25%

Question 5:Â The price of sugaris increased by 20%. By what percentage must one cut down on the consumption of sugar, so that no extra amount has to be incurred on sugar?

a)Â $16\frac{2}{3}\%$

b)Â $20\%$

c)Â $80\%$

d)Â $83\frac{1}{3}\%$

5)Â AnswerÂ (A)

Solution:

Percentage decrements in theÂ consumption of sugar = $\frac{rate}{100 + rate} \times 100$

=Â $\frac{20}{100 + 20} \times 100$ =Â $\frac{20}{120} \times 100$ = $16 \frac{2}{3}$%

Question 6:Â In an examination in which the full marks were 500, A scored 25% more marks than B, B scored 60% more marks than C and C scored 20% less marks than D. If A scored 80% marks, then the percentage of marks obtained by D is:

a)Â 65%

b)Â 60%

c)Â 50%

d)Â 54%

6)Â AnswerÂ (C)

Solution:

Given, Total marks = 500

A scored 80% marks in the examination

$\Rightarrow$Â  A =Â $\frac{80}{100}\times500$ = 400

A scored 25% more marks than B

$\Rightarrow$Â  A =Â $\frac{125}{100}$B

$\Rightarrow$Â  400 =Â $\frac{125}{100}$B

$\Rightarrow$Â  400 = $\frac{5}{4}$B

$\Rightarrow$Â  B = 320

B scored 60% more marks than C

$\Rightarrow$Â  B =Â $\frac{160}{100}$C

$\Rightarrow$Â  320 =Â $\frac{160}{100}$C

$\Rightarrow$Â  C = 200

C scored 20% less marks than D

$\Rightarrow$Â  C =Â $\frac{80}{100}$D

$\Rightarrow$Â  200 =Â $\frac{80}{100}$D

$\Rightarrow$Â  D = 250

$\therefore\$Percentage of marks obtained by D =Â $\frac{250}{500}$ = 50%

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 7:Â A, B and C donate 8%, 7% and 9%,of their salaries, respectively to a charitable trust. The salaries of A and B are same and the difference between their donations is â‚¹259. Thetotal donation of A and B is â‚¹1,185 more than that of C. The total donation ofA and C is what percentage ofthe total salaries of A, B and C? (Correct to one decimalplace)

a)Â 6.2%

b)Â 5.8%

c)Â 6.4%

d)Â 7.1%

7)Â AnswerÂ (B)

Solution:

Let the salaries of A, B and C be x, x, y.

Donation of A, B and C = 0.08x, 0.07x and 0.09z

Difference between donations of A and BÂ = 259

0.08x – 0.07x = 259

x = 259/0.01 = 25900

Total donation of A and B = donation of A + 1185

0.08x + 0.07x =Â 0.09z + 1185

0.15x =Â 0.09z + 1185

0.09z =Â 0.15 $\times$ 25900 – 1185 = 2700

z = 2700/0.09 = 30000

Total donation of A and C =Â 0.08x +Â 0.09z

=0.08 $\times$ 25900 + 2700 = 2072 + 2700 = 4772

Total salaries of A, B and C =Â 25900 +Â 25900 +30000Â = 81800

Required percentage = $\frac{4772}{81800} \times 100 = 5.8% Question 8:Â Sonu saves 15% of her income. If her income increases by 20% and she still saves the same amount as before, then what is the percentage increase in her expenditure? (correct to one decimal place) a)Â 23.5 b)Â 22.8 c)Â 23.8 d)Â 242 8)Â AnswerÂ (A) Solution: Let the initially income of Sonu be Rs.100. saving = 15% Expenditure = 100 – 15 = 85% Saving = 100 -85 = Rs.15 Expenditure = 85% of 100 = Rs.85 Income after increment = 100$\times \frac{120}{100}$= Rs.120 Saving = 15 Expenditure = 120 – 15 = 105 Increment in expenditure = 105 – 85 = Rs.20 PercentageÂ Increment in expenditure =$\frac{20}{85} \times$100 = 23.52% Question 9:Â A is 75% less than B and C is 75% of the difference between A and B. C is what percentage more than A? a)Â 125 b)Â 100 c)Â 75 d)Â 90 9)Â AnswerÂ (A) Solution: As per the question, Let B is = 100 So, as per the condition, A is 75% less than B, so A=25 As per the condition, c=$\dfrac{(A-B)\times 75}{100}=\dfrac{(100-25)\times 75}{100}=\dfrac{225}{4}$Hence, the required percentage$=\dfrac{\dfrac{(225}{4}-25)\times 100}{25}=\dfrac{(225-100)\times 100}{100}=125$Question 10:Â In an office, 70% of the total number of employees are females. 80% of the total number of employees, including 85 males, got promotion.If there are 105 female employees, then what percentage of female employees got promotion? a)Â 40% b)Â$33\frac{1}{3}\%$c)Â 35% d)Â 30% 10)Â AnswerÂ (B) Solution: 105 female employee which is 70% of the total employee so the total number of employee =$ 105 \times \dfrac{10}{7}\Rightarrow 150 $80% employee got a promotion so number of females who got a promotion = 120-85=35 so the %Â of female employee got isÂ$\dfrac{35}{105}\times 100 \Rightarrow 33 \dfrac{1}{3}$% Ans Question 11:Â If Aâ€™s income is 40% of Bâ€™s income and Bâ€™s income is 24% more than Câ€™s income, then by what percentage is Câ€™sÂ income more than Aâ€™s income? (Your answer should be correct to one decimal place.) a)Â 75.6 b)Â 101.6 c)Â 104.2 d)Â 50.4 11)Â AnswerÂ (B) Solution: Let C income = 100 B’s income is 24% more than C then B = 124 now A’s income is 40% of B income so A incomeÂ =$ 124 \times \dfrac{40}{100} \Rightarrow 49.6 $so C’s income is 100- 49.6 = 50.4 (more than A) then according to question$\dfrac{50.4}{49.6}\times 100 \Rightarrow 101.6 $Ans Question 12:Â If A is 48% more than B and C is 60%less than the sum of A and B, then A is what percentage more than C?
