**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

8.33%=1/12

72.72%=8/11

28.57%=2/7

Therefore we have (1/12)*(8/11)*(2/7)*462= (1/12)(8/11)(2/7)*11*7*6

=8

**2) Answer (A)**

33.33%=1/3

44.44%=4/9

37.5%=3/8

Therefore we have (1/3)(4/9)(3/8)*216=

=12

**3) Answer (D)**

His old average=3.75

Total goals=3.75*8

=30 goals

His new average is (30+1+2+3)/(11)=3.27

Percentage change in his average=(3.75-3.27)*100/3.75

=0.128*100

=12.8%

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**4) Answer (C)**

let the cost be x

44.44%=4/9

66.66%=2/3

8.33%=1/12

So the change value will be x(1-(4/9))(1+(2/3))(1+(1/12))

=x*(5/9)(5/3)(13/12)

=1.003x

Percentage change (1.003x-x)*100=0.3%

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (C)**

let us assume length and breadth to be l and b.

Area=l*b

new length =1.1l

new breadth=1.2b

new area=1.1l*1.2b

=1.32lb

Percentage change=((1.32lb-lb)/lb)*100

=32%

**6) Answer (C)**

80% of 40% of 150% of 2000 = (0.8)(0.4)(1.5)(2000) = (0.32)(3000) = 960

So the answer is option C.

**7) Answer (B)**

x % of y = y % of x

similarly, 257% of 489 = 489% of 257

So the answer is option B.

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the cost of each orange be y.

Cost of 10 apples =10y

Selling price of 10 apples =Cost of 12 apples =12y

The profit for selling 10 apples=12y-10y=2y

Thus profit%=(2yx100)/10y= 20%

**9) Answer (A)**

Suppose, there are 100 fruits in the basket.

=> 30 are apples and 70 are oranges

60% of apples are ripe => 30 * 0.6 = 18 apples are ripe => 12 apples are not ripe.

70% of oranges are ripe => 70 * 0.7 = 49 oranges are ripe => 21 oranges are not ripe.

=> Total number of fruits that are not ripe = 12 + 21 = 33

=> 33% of fruits are not ripe

**10) Answer (B)**

Let the number of students in the class be 100.

Number of girls = 30

Number of boys = 70

Number of girls selected to the team = 20% of 30 = 6

Number of boys selected to the team = 30% of 70 = 21

So, percentage of girls in the team = 6/27 * 100% = 22.22%

**11) Answer (B)**

Let the price be 180 Rs. 18 items were purchased at 180 rupees and 15 items were sold at 180 rupees.

So, cost price is 10 rupees and selling price is 12 rupees.

So, profit percent = 20%

**12) Answer (C)**

**13) Answer (D)**

Let she got $x$ marks in Science

=> Maths marks = $(x+30)$

According to ques,

=> $(x+30)=\frac{60}{100}(x+x+30)$

=> $(x+30)=\frac{3}{5}(2x+30)$

=> $5x+150=6x+90$

=> $6x-5x=150-90$

=> $x=60$

=> Ans – (D)

**14) Answer (D)**

Total number of students = 50 and number of boys = 27

=> Number of girls in class = 50 – 27 = 23

Average weight of boys = 72 kg

=> Total weight of boys = $72 \times 27 = 1944$ kg

Similarly, total weight of full class = $55.44 \times 50 = 2772$ kg

=> Total weight of girls = 2772 – 1944 = 828 kg

$\therefore$ Average weight of girls = $\frac{828}{23} = 36$ kg

=> Ans – (D)

**15) Answer (A)**

Let side of square = $10$ cm

=> Area of square = $(10)^2=100$ $cm^2$

Area is increased b 69%, => New area = $100+(\frac{69}{100}\times100)=169$ $cm^2$

Thus, new side of square = $\sqrt{169}=13$ cm

$\therefore$ Increase in side = $k=\frac{(13-10)}{10}\times100$

= $30\%$

=> Ans – (A)

**16) Answer (D)**

Quantity of mixture = 80 litres

Quantity of milk = $\frac{10}{100}\times80=8$ litres

Let $x$ litres of water is added

According to ques,

=> $\frac{5}{100}(x+80)=8$

=> $x+80=8\times20=160$

=> $x=160-80=80$ litres

=> Ans – (D)

**17) Answer (A)**

Marked price = Rs. 2150

Selling price = Rs. 1892

=> Discount % = $\frac{(2150-1892)}{2150}\times100$

= $\frac{516}{43}=12\%$

=> Ans – (A)

**18) Answer (D)**

50 % of 800 = 400

80 % of 400 = 320

40 % of 320 = 32*40/100 = 128

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**19) Answer (B)**

B’s marks = 220

A got 18% more marks than B

=> A’s marks = $220+(\frac{18}{100}\times220)=259.6$

Also, A got 12% less marks than C

=> C’s marks = $259.6\times\frac{100}{(100-12)}$

= $\frac{25960}{88}=295$

=> Ans – (B)

**20) Answer (C)**

Let the number of trees 2 years ago = $P$

Rate of increase of trees = 5%

=> Trees after 2 years = $P(1+\frac{R}{100})^T$

=> $P(1+\frac{5}{100})^2=17640$

=> $P(\frac{21}{20})^2=17640$

=> $P=17640\times\frac{400}{441}$

=> $P=40\times400=16000$

=> Ans – (C)
