Let Rambha’s present age = $8x$ years and Sarvesh’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{8x + 7}{5x + 7} = \frac{5}{4}$

=> $32x + 28 = 25x + 35$

=> $32x – 25x = 35 – 28$

=> $7x = 7$

=> $x = \frac{7}{7} = 1$

$\therefore$ Rambha’s age = $8 \times 1 = 8$ years

=> Ans – (C)

Let husband’s age = $x$ years

=> Wife’s age = $(56 – x)$ years

According to ques, $(x-10)(56-x-10)=320$

=> $(x-10)(46-x)=320$

=> $46x-x^2-460+10x=320$

=> $x^2-56x+780=0$

=> $x^2-30x-26x+780=0$

=> $x(x-30)-26(x-30)=0$

=> $(x-30)(x-26)=0$

=> $x=30,26$

$\therefore$ Ages of the husband and the wife = 30 and 26 years

Expressions : 15 -­ 7x and 15x + 7

=> $15 – 7x = 15x + 7$

=> $15x + 7x = 15 – 7$

=> $22x = 8$

=> $x = \frac{8}{22} = \frac{4}{11}$

=> Ans – (D)

Expression 1 : 5x ­- 3 ≥ 3 + x/2

=> $5x-\frac{x}{2} \geq 3+3$

=> $\frac{9x}{2} \geq 6$

=> $x \geq \frac{4}{3}$ ————(i)

Expression 2 : 4x -­ 2 ≤ 6 + x

=> $4x-x \leq 6+2$

=> $3x \leq 8$

=> $x \leq \frac{8}{3}$ ————(ii)

Combining inequalities (i) and (ii), we get : $\frac{4}{3} \leq x \leq \frac{8}{3}$

The only value that $x$ can take among the given options = 2

=> Ans – (B)

Let Manoj start from point O and walks 12 metres towards north to reach P. Then turns right and walk another 12 metres eastwards to reach Q. Then turn right and walks for 7 metres southwards to reach college R. He again turns to his right and walks for 12 metres.

Thus, $(OR)^2=(OS)^2+(SR)^2$

=> $(OR)^2=(5)^2+(12)^2$

=> $(OR)^2=25+144=169$

=> $OR=\sqrt{169}=13$ m

=> Ans – (B)

I : $\sqrt{324}+\sqrt{3.24}+\sqrt{0.0324} = 19.98$

L.H.S. = $18+1.8+0.18=19.98=$ R.H.S.

II : $\sqrt{129+\sqrt{121}+\sqrt{361}+\sqrt{100}}=13$

L.H.S. = $\sqrt{129+11+19+10}=\sqrt{169}=13=$ R.H.S.

Thus, both I and II are correct.

=> Ans – (D)

Given, S = 160% of T
=> $S = \dfrac{160}{100}\times T$

=> $T = \dfrac{100}{160}\times S$

=> $T = \dfrac{5}{8}S$

$\dfrac{5}{8} = 62.5$%

Hence, T = 62.5% of S

Ratio of profits = Ratio of investments = 14000 : 18000 : 24000 = 7 : 9 : 12
Let the profit of A, B and C be Rs.7x, Rs.9x, Rs.12x respectively.
Total profit = 7x+9x+12x = Rs.28x
Given, 28x = 25480
Therefore, Profit of A and B together = Rs.7x+9x = Rs.16x = $\dfrac{16\times25840}{28} = Rs.14560$

Mid-point = $(\frac{x_{1}+x_{2}}{2} , \frac{y_{1}+y_{2}}{2})$  $\Rightarrow \frac{-5+x}{2}=-2 \Rightarrow x = -4 + 5 = 1$

so the answer is option A.

slope m = $\frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}=\frac{-4+1}{4-5}=-3$

slope of the parallel line = m = -3.

So the answer is option C.

Sales of Company F in 2017 = 10% of Rs.300 crore = Rs.30 crore
Sales of Company F in 2018 = 13% of Rs.200 crore = Rs.26 crore
Decrease in sales = $\dfrac{30-26}{30}\times100 = \dfrac{40}{3}$% $= 13\dfrac{1}{3}$%

Number of cycles sold in March = 60
Number of cycles sold in April = 105
Percentage Increase in number of cycles = $\dfrac{105-60}{60}\times100 = \dfrac{45}{60}\times100 = 75$%

Let the numbers be $x$ and $(x-2)$

According to ques,

=> $x+2(x-2)=8$

=> $x+2x-4=8$

=> $3x=8+4=12$

=> $x=\frac{12}{3}=4$

$\therefore$ Numbers are = 4, 2

=> Ans – (D)

Given : $cos A+sin A=\sqrt2 cos A$

Squaring both sides, we get :

=> $(cos A+sin A)^2=(\sqrt2 cos A)^2$

=> $cos^2A+sin^2A+2sin A.cos A=2cos^2A$

=> $1+2sin A.cos A=2(1-sin^2A)$

=> $1+2sin A.cos A=2cos=2-2sin^2A$

=> $2sin A.cos A=2cos=1-2sin^2A$ —————–(i)

To find : $cos A-sin A=x$

Squaring both sides, we get :

=> $x^2=cos^2A+sin^2A-2sin A.cos A$

Substituting value from equation (i),

=> $x^2=1-(1-2sin^2A)$

=> $x^2=2sin^2A$

=> $x=\sqrt{2sin^2A}$

=> $x=\sqrt2sin A$

=> Ans – (C)

Let the salaries of ravi and sumit be 2x and 3x
salaries increased by 3000
new salaries are 2x+3000 an 3x+3000
ratio =7:10
(2x+3000)/(3x+3000)=7/10
20x+30000=21x+21000
x=9000
Sumit’s new salary=3(9000)+3000
=30000

Copper in the A alloy=7/9
Copper in the B alloy=5/8
Copper in the resultant mixture=3/4
let the ratio in which they are mixed is x
By using the principle of allegation we have
x=((3/4)-(5/8))/((7/9)-(3/4))
x=(1/8)/(1/36)
x=9:2
Given 44 kg of mixture and so zinc copper present is (3/4)*44=33 kg
Therefore (7/9)*9y +(5/8)*2y =33
7y+(5y/4)=33
33y/4 =33
y=4
9y=36 kgs and 2y=8 kgs
