**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the two numbers be X and Y.

So, $\frac{5}{8}*X = 60 \% Y$

Or, $\frac{5}{8}*X = \frac{3}{5}*Y$

So, $\frac{X}{Y} = \frac{24}{25}$

Hence, the required ratio is 24:25

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the salaries of A, B and C be 2S,3S and 5S.

If salary of A is increased by 15%, the salary becomes 2S*115% = 2.3S

If salary of B is increased by 10%, the salary becomes 3S*110% = 3.3S

If salary of C is increased by 20%, the salary becomes 5S*120% = 6S

Hence, the new ratio of their salaries becomes 2.3:3.3:6 = 23:33:60

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the earnings of A and B be 4X and 7X respectively.

If earnings of A increase by 50%, he earns 4X*150% = 6X

If earnings of B decrease by 50%, he earns 7X*75% = 21/4X

So, the new ratio becomes 6X:21/4X = 8:7

This information doesn’t give any new information about the value of X and hence it’s value can’t be determined.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the original number of seats in Maths, Physics and Biology be 5X, 7X and 8X.

So, the respective increases in seats equals 5X*0.4, 7X*0.5 and 8X*0.75

That is 2X, 3.5X and 6X

Hence, the final number of seats equals 5X+2X,7X+3.5X and 8X+6X = 7X,10.5X,14X

So, the final ratio is 7:10.5:14 = 2:3:4

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let x and y be the two numbers.

x+y = 27

x*y = 182

x + (182/x) = 27

x^2 – 27x + 182 = 0

x^2 – 14x – 13x +182 = 0

(x-13)(x-14) = 0

x = 13 or x = 14

y = 14 or y = 13

13 and 14 are the numbers.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let P+Q+R+S = x where x is bag of fruits.

P = (3/8)x

Q = (1/5)*5x/8 = x/8

Let R and S be fraction by y.

Fruits with R and S = x -3x/8 – x/8 = x/2

SO fruits with R = x/4

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the two numbers be a,b

We have the new fraction as (a+2.5a)/b+4b=7/19;

35a/50b=7/19;

After simplification we get 10:19 As the answer.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let x be the total amount of money.

Here, share of C is Rs 2,755 more than the share of A i.e

Share of C – Share of A = 2755

i.e (7x/23) – (2x/23) = 2755

Hence, x= 12,673

Total amount of money with B and D together = (3+11)x/23 = 14x/23 = (14*12673)/23 = 7714

Correct option is D.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (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

**10)Â AnswerÂ (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

**11)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Parineetaâ€™s present age = 33 – 9 = 24 yrs.

Manishaâ€™s present age = 24 – 9 = 15yrs

Difference between Manisha and Deepali’s prresent ages = Parineeta’s present age

Deepaliâ€™s present age = Parineeta’s present age + Manisha’s present age = 24 + 15 = 39 yrs.

Ratio of the present age of Manisha and Deepali = 15 : 39 = 5 : 13

x = 13

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let present age of Jagannath = $9x$ years

=> Badri’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $(9x-6)=2 \times (5x-6)$

=> $9x-6=10x-12$

=> $10x-9x=12-6$

=> $x=6$

$\therefore$ Difference between their present ages = $9x-5x=4x$

= $4 \times 6=24$

=> Ans – (A)

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let amount received byÂ Sudhir,Soni and Shakunthala be $2x,3x$ and $5x$ respectively.

=> Total amount = $(2x+3x+5x)=125,000$

=> $10x=125,000$

=> $x=\frac{125,000}{10}=12500$

$\therefore$ Difference between Soni’s and Sudhir’s Â Share = $3x-2x=x = Rs.$ $12,500$

=> Ans – (B)

**14)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let monthly salary of Rene = $Rs. 1500x$

=> Monthly salary of Som = $Rs. 900x$

Amount given as rent by Rene = $\frac{1}{6} \times 1500x = 250x$

Amount given by Rene to her mother = $\frac{1}{5} \times 1500x = 300x$

Amount for loan = $\frac{30}{100} \times 1500x = 450x$

Amount kept aside = $\frac{25}{100} \times 1500x = 375x$

=> Amount left = $1500x – (250x + 300x + 450x + 375x) = 5000$

=> $1500x – 1375x = 125x = 5000$

=> $x = \frac{5000}{125} = 40$

$\therefore$ Som’s salary = $900 \times 40 = Rs. 36,000$

**15)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let amount invested by A = $Rs. 18x$

=> Amount invested by B = $Rs. 7x$

After four months from the start of the business, A invested Rs. 2000 more and B invested Rs. 7000 more

Thus, ratio of profit received by A : B

= $[(18x \times 4) + (18x + 2000) \times 8] : [(7x \times 4) + (7x + 7000) \times 8]$

= $(72x + 144x + 16000) : (28x + 56x + 56000)$

= $(216x + 16000) : (84x + 56000) = (54x + 4000) : (21x + 14000)$

Acc. to ques, => $\frac{54x + 4000}{21x + 14000} = \frac{2}{1}$

=> $54x + 4000 = 42x + 28000$

=> $54x – 42x = 12x = 28000 – 4000 = 24000$

=> $x = \frac{24000}{12} = 2000$

$\therefore$ Total initial investment = $18x + 7x = 25x$

= $25 \times 2000 = Rs. 50,000$

**16)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Let B remained in the business for $x$ months.

Amount invested by A = Rs. 3600

Amount invested by B = Rs. 4000

Ratio of share in profit received by A and B

=> $\frac{3600 \times 12}{4000 \times x} = \frac{6}{5}$

=> $\frac{9 \times 2}{10 \times x} = \frac{1}{5}$

=> $x = \frac{18 \times 5}{10} = 9$

$\therefore$Â B joined the business after = $12 – 9 = 3$ months from the start of the business.

**17)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let number of boys = $3x$

=> Number of girls = $x$

Let average score of girls = $y$

Acc. to ques,

=> $\frac{(73 \times 3x) + (y \times x)}{3x + x} = 71$

=> $\frac{x (219 + y)}{4x} = 71$

=> $219 + y = 71 \times 4 = 284$

=> $y = 284 – 219 = 65$

**18)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Jar A has 78 litres of mixture of milk and water in the respective ratio of 6 : 7

=> Quantity of milk in Jar A = $\frac{6}{13} \times 78 = 36$ litres

Quantity of water in Jar A = $78 – 36 = 42$ litres

26 litres of the mixture was taken out from Jar A, i.e., $\frac{26}{78} = (\frac{1}{3})^{rd}$

=> Milk left = $36 – \frac{1}{3} \times 36 = 24$

Water leftÂ = $42 – \frac{1}{3} \times 42 = 28$

Let milk added to jar A = $x$ litres

Acc. to ques, => $\frac{24 + x}{28} = \frac{60}{40}$

=> $\frac{24 + x}{28} = \frac{3}{2}$

=> $48 + 2x = 84$

=> $2x = 84 – 48 = 36$

=> $x = \frac{36}{2} = 18$ litres

**19)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the numbers be $100x$ and $100y$

We need to find = $\frac{100x}{100y} = \frac{x}{y} = ?$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{48}{100} * 100x = \frac{60}{100} * 100y$

=> $48x = 60y$

=> $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{60}{48} = \frac{5}{4}$

=> $x:y = 5:4$

**20)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the total amount to be divided = $27x$

A : B : C : D = 4Â : 5 : 7 : 11

=> Share of C = $\frac{7}{27} * 27x = 1351$

=> $x = \frac{1351}{7} = 193$

Now, total amount of money with A & D together

= $\frac{4 + 11}{27} * 27x$

= $15 * 193 = $Rs. $2,895$
