We can factorize the number in form of prime factors.
$3750 = 2^1*3^1*5^4$
Therefore, the number of even factors = (1)*(1+1)*(4+1) = 10. Hence, option D is the correct answer.

LCM $\times$ 19 = 1083
=> LCM = $\frac{1083}{19} = 57 3) Answer (D) Compound interest = 8500*$(1 + 0.3)^3$– 8500 = Rs. 10174.5 = Rs. 10174 approx. Hence, option D is the right choice. 4) Answer (D) Let ‘r’ be the rate of interest and ‘p’ be the sum. Amount after 2 years =$p*(1+r)^2$= 8400 Amount after 3 years =$p*(1+r)^3$= 8904 Taking ratio we have,$\frac{(1+r)^3}{(1+r)^2}$=$\frac{8904}{8400}$1+r = 1.06 r = 0.06 = 6% Hence, option D is right choice. 5) Answer (A) Let the price of peanuts be Rs. 100x per kg Then, the price of walnuts = Rs. 300x per kg Cost price of peanuts for the shopkeeper = Rs. 110x per kg Cost price of walnuts for the shopkeeper = Rs. 360x per kg Total cost incurred to the shopkeeper while buying = Rs.(8 * 110x + 16 * 360x) = Rs. 6640x Total selling price that the shopkeeper got = Rs. (166 * 16) = Rs. 2656 Profit = 25% So, cost price = Rs. 2124.80 Therefore, 6640x = 2124.80 On solving, we get x = 0.32 Therefore, price of walnuts = Rs. (300 * 0.32) = Rs. 96 per kg. Hence, option A is the correct answer 6) Answer: 45 B varies directly with$x$So, let us assume B = m$x$where m is the proportionality constant Similarly, C varies directly with$x^2$So, we can assume C = n$x^2$A varies directly with the sum of B and C. So, we can assume A = k (B + C) Or, A = k (m$x$+ n$x^2$) …………….(i) It is given that when$x$= 2, A = 24 or, 24 = k (2m + 4n) ………………(ii) Also, when$x$= 5, A = 105 Or, 105 = k (5m + 25n) ……………(iii) On solving (ii) and (iii) for m and n, we get m = 2n …………..(iv) On putting (iv) in either (ii) or (iii), we get k =$\frac{3}{\text{n}}$………….(v) On putting (iv) and (v) in (i), we get A =$\frac{3}{\text{n}}$(2nx + n$x^2$) Or, A = 3 ($2x$+$x^2$) On putting$x$= 3, we get A = 45 Hence, 45 is the correct answer. 7) Answer (D) Let’s say Nikita’s salary is x, hence Rajendra’s salary will be$\frac{6x}{5}$, hence Nikita’s salary is$\frac{x}{5}$lesser than that of Rajendra’s salary. So percentage =$\frac{\frac{x}{5}}{\frac{6x}{5}} \times 100 = 16.66 \% $8) Answer (C) Initial price of the watch = 1000 After 10% decrease, price of the watch = (90/100)*1000 = 900 After 10% increase, price of the watch = (110/100)*900 = 990 So, the new price of the watch = Rs 990 Difference between the new price and old price = 1000 – 990 = Rs 10 9) Answer (D) Let the required number of pens be ‘x’. So the manufacturing cost will be 50400 + x*6 The amount earned from these pens will be 12x We have been given that 50400 + 6x = 12x => 6x = 50400 => x = 8400 10) Answer (D) Cost price of 10 pencils = Rs 80 Selling price of 10 pencils = 9.2*10=Rs 92 Profit percentage = ((92-80)/80)*100 = (12/80)*100 = 15%. So the correct option to choose is D – 15% 11) Answer (A) Profit = S.P. – C.P. = 2006 – 1700 = Rs. 306 => Profit % =$\frac{306}{1700} * 100$= 18% 12) Answer (D) Let the length of one train be ‘l’. Let the speed of one train be ‘s’ and the speed of the other train be 1.5s. It has been given that 2l/(s+1.5s) = 100 (Running in opposite directions) 2l/s = 250 seconds ———–(1). If the trains run in the same direction, relative velocity will be 1.5s – s = 0.5s 2l/0.5s = 2*(2l/s) = 2*250 = 500 seconds. Therefore, option D is the right answer. 13) Answer (C) Let speed of boat in still water =$x$km/hr => Speed of current =$y$km/hr Let distance travelled =$d$km Acc. to ques, =>$2.2 (\frac{d}{x + y}) = \frac{d}{x – y}$=>$2.2x – 2.2y = x + y$=>$2.2x – x = y + 2.2y$=>$3x = 8y$————-(i) Also, the man takes 2 hrs 30 mins in travelling 55 km downstream. =>$\frac{55}{x + y} = 2 + \frac{1}{2}$=>$\frac{55}{x + y} = \frac{5}{2}$=>$x + y = 22$Multiplying both sides by 8, and using eqn(i), we get : =>$8x + 3x = 22 \times 8$=>$x = \frac{22 \times 8}{11} = 16$km/hr 14) Answer (C) The distance between A and B = 1500 km. Let the speed of Ravi be ‘r’ and that of Balu be ‘b’. Ravi travels for 9 hours whereas Balu travels for 9-5 = 4 hours. They cover the entire distance. 9r + 4b = 1500. Ratio of speeds of Balu and Ravi = 3:2 Ratio of time taken will be 2:3 => 2b = 3r 4b = 6r 9r + 4b = 1500 15r = 1500 r = 100 kmph and b = 150 kmph. Distance that Balu has to cover after meeting = 9r = 900 km. 15) Answer (B) The CP, SP and MP of the cycle from 2001-2005 is as shown below:- Thus, the discount percent offered on the cycle in 2005 = (4212-3159)*100/4212 = 25% Hence, option B is the correct answer. 16) Answer (C) The marks scored by Aman in Test 1 = 70 Marks scored by Aman in Test 2 = 75*2 – 70 = 80 Marks scored by Aman in Test 3 = 74*3 – 75*2 = 72 Marks scored by Aman in Test 4 = 72*4 – 74*3 = 66 Marks scored by Aman in Test 5 = 70*5 – 72*4 = 62 Similalry, the scores of all the students can be found out. The following table shows the marks scored by each of the 5 students in test1-test5:- Thus, Chandu scored the highest marks in all the 5 tests combined. Hence, option C is the correct answer. 17) Answer (A) Let us first tabulate the information given in the bar graph: Also, we know the following details about the number of different type of cars sold. The number of sedans sold is equal to the number of Hatchbacks sold. Let this number be x. The number of SUVs sold by Hyundai and Honda is the same. Let this number be ‘a’. The number of sedans sold by Maruti is equal to the number of SUVs sold by Honda. Therefore, the number of sedans sold by Maruti will be ‘a’ as well. Also, we know that the total number of cars of different types sold by each company in a year will be equal to the total number of cars sold by the company in 3 years. As we can see from the table, 170 + a + 120 = 370 => a = 80 2x + 120 + 2a = 1120 2x + 120 + 160 = 1120 2x = 940 x = 470 Filling the remaining blanks similarly, we get the following table. Hyundai sold all the SUVs it sold in 2015. Hyundai sold 80 SUVs in total. It sold 130 cars in 2015. Therefore, 130-80 = 50 cars of type other than SUV were sold in 2015. In order to minimize the number of sedans it sold in 2017, we have to maximize the number of sedans it sold in the other 2 years. Hyundai sold 150 sedans. In the other 2 years, 50 + 110 = 160 cars of the other type have been sold. All the sedans could have been sold in these 2 years itself. Therefore, the least number of sedans that could have been sold in 2016 is 0 and hence, option A is the right answer. 18) Answer (E) The ladder ground and the wall form right-angled triangles. Horizontal distance between the wall and the stick before sliding =$\sqrt{65^2 – 52^2}$=$\sqrt{1521}$=$39$cm Horizontal distance between the wall and the stick after sliding =$\sqrt{65^2 – 25^2}$=$\sqrt{3600}$=$60$cm Total horizontal displacement =$60 – 39$=$21$cm. Therefore, option E is the right answer. 19) Answer (D) Number of cuboids which do not have any colour =$(5-2) \times (4-2) \times (3-2)$=$3 \times 2 \times 1=6$=> Ans – (D) 20) 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
