**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let salaries of X, Y and Z be $15x,3x$ and $8x$ respectively.According to ques, => $8x-3x=3960$=> $5x=3960$=> $x=\frac{3960}{5}=792$$\therefore$ X’s salary = $15\times792=Rs.$ $11880$=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (B)**

Let quantity of milk and sugar be $4x$ and $5x$ litres respectively.According to ques,=> $\frac{4x}{5x+7}=\frac{2}{3}$=> $12x=10x+14$=> $12x-10x=2x=14$=> $x=\frac{14}{2}=7$$\therefore$ Total quantity of sugar = $4\times7=28$ litres=> Ans – (B)

**3) Answer (D)**

Let the numbers be $3x,6x$ and $8x$Product = $3x\times6x\times8x=9216$=> $x^3=\frac{9216}{144}=64$=> $x=\sqrt[3]{64}=4$$\therefore$ Sum of the numbers = $3x+6x+8x=17x$= $17\times4=68$=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (A)**

Let the number of oranges and apples be 3x and 4x.

Also, let the ratio of prices of an orange and an apple be k : 1.

Then, according to question,

$\frac{3x * k}{4x * 1}$ = $\frac{9}{8}$

On solving we get k = $\frac{3}{2}$

Ratio of prices of an orange and an apple = $\frac{2}{3}$ : 1 = 3 : 2 =>Ratio of prices of an apple and an orange = 2 : 3 Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (C)**

Let the marks of Sonu be 2x and Monu be 3x

According to the question,

2x + 20 = 3x + 10

On solving, we get x = 10

Pass marks = 2x + 20 = 3x+ 10 = 40

Since pass marks is 20% of the total marks,

Total marks = 200

Hence, option C is correct.

**6) Answer (A)**

Let the money with Rajesh and Suresh be x and y respectively

In first case,

$\frac{x – 10}{y + 10}$ = $\frac{4}{3}$

=> 3x – 30 = 4y + 40

=>3x – 4y = 70…………………(i)

In second case,

$\frac{x + 10}{y – 10}$ = $\frac{16}{5}$

=> 5x + 50 = 16y – 160

=> 16y – 5x = 210………………(ii)

On solving (i) and (ii) we get

x = 70 and y = 35

So, the ratio is 2 : 1

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**7) Answer (D)**

It has been given that the coins are in the ratio of 3x: 4x: 5x.

Total value of all the coins combined = 3x*1 + 4x*2 + 5x*5 = 36x

It has been given that 36x = 1296

Hence, x = $\frac{1296}{36}$ = 36

Hence, the total number of Rs. 2 coins = 4 * 36 = 144 coins.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**8) Answer (B)**

In 10 kg of X, the composition will be as follows:

Rice A = 4 kg and

Rice B = 6 kg.

So, the cost price of X = Rs. (4 * 60 + 6 * 100) = Rs. 840

Let the quantity of rice C to be mixed be ‘a’ kg.

Total cost of the mixture, Y = Rs.(840 + a * 70) = Rs. (840 + 70a)……..(i)

Also, the effective cost price of Y = Rs. 80/kg

Or total cost price of Y = Rs.(10 + a) * 80 = Rs. (800 + 80a)…………(ii)

Equating (i) and (ii), we get

840 + 70a = 800 + 80a

=> 10a = 40

=>a = 4kg

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (C)**

Let the age of the son be x years.

Then, the age of the father = 3x years

Also, the ratio of the ages of the son and mother is 3 : 8.

Therefore, the age of mother = $\large\frac{8x}{3}$ years

It is given that $3x + \large\frac{8x}{3}$ = 85 years

On solving, we get, x = 15 years.

So, the age of son = 15 years.

Sum of the ages of all three = 85 + 15 years = 100 years.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (D)**

Let the money received by A, B and C be $a$, $b$ and $c$ respectively.

We have, $a + b + c = 7550$

We are given that $b = 2.4c$ therefore $a$ = $\frac{2}{3}\times 2.4c = 1.6c$

Therefore,

$\Rightarrow$ $1.6c + 2.4c + c = 7550$

$\Rightarrow$ $5c = 7550$

$\Rightarrow$ $c = 1510$ Therefore total prize money received by A and B together = $1.6c + 2.4c$ = 4*1510 = Rs. 6040

Hence we can say that option D is the correct answer.

**11) Answer (A)**

Let the weight of final mixture be 1800 kg (For the ease of calculation we have taken this weight which is a multiple of all the ratios involved).

Weight of X in the final mixture = $\frac{3}{5}$ *1800 kg = 1080 kg

Weight of B in X = $\frac{3}{5}$ * 1080 kg = 648 kg

Therefore, the percentage of B in the final mixture = $\frac{648}{1000}$ * 100% = 36%

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**12) Answer (D)**

Let the can contain 7x unit of mixture.

Quantity of A = 3x

Let y amount of the mixture be taken out and replaced with liquid A

After replacing, the ratio becomes 4 : 3

So, after replacement, quantity of A = 4x

=> $\frac{3}{7}$(7x – y) + y = 4x

Solving this we get

y = $\frac{\text{7x}}{4}$

Required percentage = $\frac{\text{7x}}{\text{4 * 7x}}$ * 100% = 25%

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**13) Answer (C)**

No. of students initially = 140

No. of boys = 60

No. of girls = 80

After 10 girls left the class,

No. of girls remaining = 80 – 10 = 70

Ratio of boys and girls = 3 : 5

=> No. of boys remaining = 42

No. of boys who left the class = 60 – 42 = 18

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**14) Answer (B)**

Let the two numbers be 5x and 8x Given difference = 48 3x = 48 x = 16. Smallest number $\Rightarrow$ 16 x 5 = 80. Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**15) Answer (C)**

Given, A : B = 2 : 1 & A : C = 1 : 3 = (1 x 2) : (3 x 2) = 2 : 6 $\therefore\ $ A : B : C = 2 : 1 : 6 Hence, option C is the correct answer.
