**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

$\Large\frac{169.87^{2}-13.94^{2}}{183.87}$ $\large+$ $\Large\frac{3211.96}{44.002}\simeq \frac{170^{2}-14^{2}}{184}$ $\large+$ $\Large\frac{3212}{44}$

$= \Large\frac{(170+14)(170-14)}{184}$ $+$ $73$

$= \Large\frac{184\times156}{184}$ $+$ $73$

$= 156+73 = 229$

**2) Answer (B)**

$17.33+142.895-76.795+235.008-4.779+38.102 \simeq 17+143-77+235-5+38$

Adding all positive terms:

$17+143+235+38 = 433$

Adding all negative terms:

$77+5 = 82$

$\therefore$ $17+143-77+235-5+38 = 433-82 = 351$

**3) Answer (B)**

$\Large\frac{383.96}{x} = \frac{x}{24.01}$

$\Rightarrow x^{2} \simeq 384\times24 = 9216$

$\therefore$ x $= \sqrt{9216} = 96$

**4) Answer (B)**

$\sqrt{6560}\div2.98^{2}+\sqrt[3]{2189}\div\sqrt{2700}\times\sqrt{5180}\div\sqrt[3]{25} \simeq \sqrt{6561}\div3^{2}+\sqrt[3]{2197}\div\sqrt{2704}\times\sqrt{5184}\div\sqrt[3]{27}$

$= \Large\frac{\sqrt{6561}}{3^{2}}+\frac{\sqrt[3]{2197}\times\sqrt{5184}}{\sqrt{2704}\times\sqrt[3]{27}}$

$= \Large\frac{81}{9}+\frac{13\times72}{52\times3}$ $= 9+6 = 15$

**5) Answer (B)**

$153.001\times146.95-66.009\times73.952+25.001\times23.856 \simeq 153\times147-66\times74+25\times24$

$153\times147$ can be written as $(150+3)(150-3)$

$=$ $150^{2}-3^{2}$ $(\because (a+b)(a-b) = a^{2}-b^{2})$

$=$ $22500-9$ $=$ $22491$

$66\times74$ can be written as $(70-4)(70+4)$ $=$ $70^{2}-4^{2}$ $=$ $4900-16 = 4884$

$25\times24$ can be written as $24\times\Large\frac{100}{4} =$ $600$

$\therefore$ $153\times147-66\times74+25\times24 = 22491-4884+600 = 18207$

**6) Answer (C)**

$1798.98\div8.01\times51.965\div779.97-390.001\div25.87 \simeq 1800\div8\times52\div780-390\div26$

$= \Large\frac{1800\times52}{8\times780}-\frac{390}{26}$

$= 15-15 = 0$

**7) Answer (E)**

$12.001+156.998-26.879+83.02-124.985 \simeq 12+157-27+83-125$

Adding all positive terms

$12+157+83 = 252$

Adding all negative terms

$27+125 = 152$

$\therefore 12+157-27+83-125 = 252-152 = 100$

**8) Answer (C)**

$\Large\frac{107.89}{x} = \frac{x}{11.96}$

$\approx$ $\Large\frac{108}{x} = \frac{x}{12}$

$\Rightarrow$ x$^{2} = 108\times12 = 1296$

$\therefore x = 36$

**9) Answer (D)**

$\large\sqrt[3]{10645}\div\sqrt{249}\times\sqrt{4084}\div\sqrt[3]{1328}\div\sqrt[6]{26} \simeq \sqrt[3]{10648}\div\sqrt{256}\times\sqrt{4096}\div\sqrt[3]{1331}\div\large\sqrt[6]{27}$

$\large\sqrt[6]{27}$ $=$ $(27)^{\large\frac{1}{6}}$ $=$ $(27^{\large\frac{1}{3}})^{\large\frac{1}{2}}$ $=$ $(3)^{\large\frac{1}{2}}$ $\simeq$ $(4)^{\large\frac{1}{2}}$ $= 2$

$\Large\frac{22\times64}{16\times11\times2} =$ $4$

**10) Answer (B)**

$69.93$% of $2098.98$ $\simeq$ $70$% of $2100$ $=$ $\Large\frac{70}{100}$ $\times$ $2100 = 1470$

$149.89$% of $537.789$ $\simeq$ $150$% of $538$ $=$ $\Large\frac{150}{100}$ $\times$ $538 = 807$

$19.97$% of $1604.87$ $\simeq$ $20$% of $1605$ $=$ $\Large\frac{20}{100}$ $\times$ $1605 = 321$

$\therefore$ $69.93$% of $2098.98-149.89$% of $537.789+24.97$% of $1604.87 = 1470-807+321 = 984$

**11) Answer (D)**

Let us assume that on a normal day he sells milk at x rupee per litre and he sells y litre of milk

So revenue generated on normal day = x*y = xy

He mixed water with milk in ratio of 2:5 so net quantity = $\frac{2+5}{5} * y$ = 1.4y

New selling price during summer = 1.2x rupees per litre

So revenue generated in summers = 1.4y * 1.2x = 1.68xy

Hence we can say that revenue will go up by 68 percent.

**12) Answer (E)**

Number of notebooks that retailer bought = 5 * 12 = 60

Let us assume that printed price on each notebook = 100

The retailer bought these notebooks at 30% less = 70 Rupees/notebook

Sum invested by the retailer = 60*70 = 4200

By selling 60 notebooks he will get money for = $\frac{4}{5}*60$ = 48 notebooks

Money collected by the retailer by selling these notebooks = 48*100 = 4800

Hence, retailer’s profit percentage = $\frac{4800-4200}{4200}*100$ = 14.28%

**13) Answer (A)**

Let assume Krishna paid 100x when he purchased the laptop.

So Krishna sold it to Pradeep for = $\frac{100-30}{100}*100x$ = 70x

And Pradeep also spent 680 rupees for repairing

So total amount invested by Pradeep = 70x+680

So the amount Ravi paid to Pradeep = $\frac{100-30}{100}*(70x+680)$ = 49x+476

We also know that Ravi paid exactly half of what Krishna paid

i.e. 0.5*(100x) = 49x+476

$\Rightarrow$ x = 476

So the amount for which Krishna purchased the laptop = 100*476 = 47600

**14) Answer (B)**

Let the worth of the computer to be Rs. x.

Let the price at which Raj bought the computer be 1.2x.

Price at which Hari bought = 1.3*1.2x = 1.56x

Price at which Balu bought = 1.5*1.56x = 2.34x

Difference between the prices at which Balu and Hari bought = 2.34x – 1.56x = 0.78x

It has been given that 0.78x = 1560

x = Rs. 2000.

Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**15) Answer (D)**

Let the price of the article be $P$.

Let us consider $x$ in decimal form for the ease of calculation.

$(1+x)(1-x/2)P = 0.52P$

$(1+x)(2-x) = 1.04$

$2-x+2x -x^2 = 1.04$

$-x^2+x = -0.96$

$x^2-x-0.96 = 0$

$x = 1.6$ or $x = -0.6$

We can ignore the negative root since it has been given that the shopkeeper marks up the price of the product.

=> $x = 160$% and hence, option D is the right answer.

**16) Answer (E)**

Cost of a pencil = Rs. 150/12 = Rs.12.5

Marked price = 1.2*12.5 = Rs. 15

The shopkeeper offers 2 consecutive discounts of 10%.

Therefore, the selling price of the pencil will be 0.9*0.9*15 = Rs. 12.15

Profit/loss percentage of the shopkeeper = (12.15 – 12.5)/12.5 = 2.8% loss.

Therefore, option E is the right answer.

**17) Answer (E)**

Cost price of a fruit = 3/12 = Rs. 0.25

Selling price = 1.2*0.25 = Rs.0.3

Let us check the options one by one.

9 fruits/ 30 rupees => Cost of 1 fruit = 30/9 = Rs.3.33

6 fruits/15 rupees => Cost of 1 fruit = 15/6 = Rs. 2.5

10 fruits/ 6 rupees => Cost of 1 fruit = 6/10 = Rs. 0.6

90 fruits/30 rupees => Cost of 1 fruit = 30/90 = Rs. 0.33

50 fruits/ 15 rupees => Cost of 1 fruit = 15/50 = Rs. 0.3

Therefore, option E is the right answer.

**18) Answer (C)**

Let the price at which he bought the pen be 100x.

He marks it at 130x and then sells it at 130x*.8 = 104x

Thus, he makes a profit of 4x.

We know that 4x = 16

=> x = 4

Hence, he bought the pen for 400.

**19) Answer (E)**

It has been given that the shopkeeper buys 5 pins a rupee.

Therefore, cost of a pin = 1/5 = 20 paise.

After marking up by 50%, the price of the pin will be 30 paise per pin.

20 pins for 5 rupees = 25 paise per pin

8 pins for 2 rupees = 25 paise per pin

12 pins for 4 rupees is 33.33 paise per pin

30 pins for 5 rupees is 60 paise per pin

10 pins for 3 rupees in 30 paise per pin

Therefore, option E is the right answer.

**20) Answer (C)**

Let the price at which he bought the pen be 100x.

He marks it at 130x and then sells it at 130x*.8 = 104x

Thus, he makes a profit of 4x.

We know that 4x = 16

=> x = 4

Hence, he bought the pen for 400.
