**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Let total number of members be T.

The number of married number if percent is 28% = .28T

Hence, percent of unmarried members = (100-28)%=72%

And the number = .72T

The ratio of married to unmarried= .28/.72 = $\frac{7}{18}$

**2) Answer (E)**

As we are not given any absolute figures, a unique value of A’s salary cannot be determined.

**3) Answer (E)**

Amount taken by M = $\frac{3}{4}*44352$ = Rs 33264

Remaining amount = 44352 – 33264 = Rs 11088

Amount taken by N = $\frac{1}{6}*11088$ = Rs 1848

Remaining amount = 11088 – 1848 = Rs 9240

O gets $\frac{3}{7}$th share of Rs 9240 => $\frac{3}{7}$*9240 = Rs 3960

**4) Answer (B)**

Since Anil’s age is 1.5 times the Purvi’s age,

Purvi’s age = x

Anil’s age = 1.5x

$\frac{1.5x+8}{x+8} = \frac{25}{18}$

(1.5x+8)18 = 25(x+8)

27x+144 = 25x+200

2x = 56

x = 28

**5) Answer (A)**

Since the amount reinvested is in the ratio 6:7,

the amount reinvested in equity is $\frac{7}{6+7}$ of total amount.

$\frac{7}{13}$ x = 94500

x = 94500*13/7

Since there was a 30% profit on this amount,

Original amount = (94500*13)/(7*1.3) = 135000

Amount invested in equity =$\frac{5}{5+4}*135000$ = 75000

**6) Answer (C)**

Profit = 0.2 CP

Profit = SP – CP

1.2CP = SP

Hence, CP = (SP/1.2) = 75.6/1.2 = 63

Now, let the cost of type 1 rice is T1 and cost of type 2 be T2.

63 = $\frac{T1 + 3T2}{4}$

= (75 + 3*x)/4

x = 59

Therefore, cost of type 2 price is 59.

**7) Answer (B)**

Let the numerator and denominator be x and y.

(x/y) = (16/21)

Now, if the first number is increased by 30% and the second number is decreased by 20% then the ratio is $\frac{1.3*16}{0.8*21}$

Which equals $\frac{208}{168}$

Which equals $\frac{26}{21}$

Option B is the correct answer.

**8) Answer (C)**

Let Ravi’s age be x and Simar’s be y.

x=y+4

After 4 years,

(x+4)/(y+4) = 9/8

8x-9y = 4

After solving we get Ravi’s age be 32 years.

15 years before his age is 32-17=17 years.

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the earnings of A and B be 8k and 9k respectively.

New earnings of A = 150/100 * 8k = 12k

New earnings of B = 3/4 * 9k = 6.75k

So, 12k : 6.75k = 16 : 9

But, from this equation, we cannot determine the value of k.

So, option d) is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (A)**

Let the odd number be O and even number be E.

Given that $ \frac{O}{E}$ = 0.625 = $\frac{625}{1000}$ = $\frac{5}{8}$
