**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

values of ¼ and ⅓ are 0.25 and 0.33 respectively

Option 1:0.3 and 0.5

Option 2:0.27 and 0.285

Option 3:0.37 and 0.32

Option 4:0.4 and 0.43

and so the correct answer is b.

**2) Answer (B)**

$\frac{475}{525}\times\frac{256}{91}\times\frac{169}{250}\times\frac{84}{104}\times\frac{49}{19}$

By simplifying we get 64/125

**3) Answer (C)**

Total income=30000

For rent (2400/30000)*100=8%

So he is left with 100-(30+25+8)

=37%

**4) Answer (B)**

Let us assume the number to be 30 as it is lcm of 5 and 6.

Original value will be (6/5)*30=36

Wrong value obtained is (5/6)*30=25

Percentage error =((36-25)/36)*100

=30.55%

**5) Answer (C)**

Given that he sells 45 oranges. Let the total oranges be x.

We have x-45=0.7x

0.3x=45

x=150

He again sells 60% of the the remaining oranges an so 60% of oranges will be left i.e

(60/100)* (150-45)=63

**6) 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%

EndGroup:

**7) Answer (B)**

Let us assume total marks as t,marks obtained by kavya as k and pass marks as p.

k=p/4

p=(2/5)t

k=(1/4)*(2/5)*t

k=(t/10)

Therefore 10%.

**8) Answer (C)**

Given total number of votes=300

Votes received by Y is (30/100)*300=90

Votes received by Z=300-144-90 i.e 66 votes

Percent of votes received by Z=(66/300)*100

=22%

**9) Answer (C)**

Let x = 1.0474747… → (1)

Here, 47 is repeating.

Hence, Multiplying (1) by 1000 to get decimal to the right of 47.

1000x = 1047.474747… → (2)

Multiplying (1) by 10 to get decimal to the left of 47.

10x = 10.474747… → (3)

Subtracting (3) from (2)

1000x – 10x = 1047.474747… – 10.474747…

⇒ 990x = 1037

⇒ x = $\dfrac{1037}{990}$

**10) Answer (D)**

Let x = 0.343434… → (1)

Here, two digits i.e., 34 are repeated. Hence, 100 must be multiplied on both sides.

100x = 34.343434… → (2)

Subtracting (1) from (2)

100x – x = 34.343434… – 0.343434…

⇒ 99x = 34

⇒ x = $\dfrac{34}{99}

**11) Answer (A)**

Option A)

$\dfrac{1}{7} = 0.14$

$\dfrac{3}{5} = 0.60$

$\dfrac{5}{8} = 0.62$

$\dfrac{9}{11} = 0.81$

Hence, All the fractions in Option A are arranged in ascending order.

**12) Answer (B)**

$\dfrac{3}{4} = 0.75$

$\dfrac{2}{3} = 0.67$

$\dfrac{5}{7} = 0.71$

$\dfrac{4}{5} = 0.80$

Hence, $\dfrac{2}{3}$ is the smallest fraction.

**13) Answer (B)**

12% of 40% of 120% of 200 = (0.12)(0.4)(1.2)(200) = (0.12)(0.4)(240) = (0.12)(96) = 11.52

So the answer is option B.

**14) 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.

**15) Answer (A)**

Let x be the number

(0.16)(0.4)(x) = 8

(0.064)(x) = 8

x = 125

So the answer is option A.

**16) Answer (A)**

$\frac{5}{2250}\times 100 = 500/2250 = 2/9$%

So the answer is option A.

**17) Answer (C)**

Dhoni’s score = 46

Raina’s score = 23

Difference = 46 – 23 = 23

answer = $\frac{46-23}{23}\times 100 = \frac{23}{23}\times 100 = 100$%

So the answer is option C.

**18) Answer (C)**

$(0.2)(2.2)(0.5)(120) = (0.2)(2.2)(60) = (0.2)(132) = 26.4$

So the answer is option C.

**19) Answer (B)**

$(0.2)(0.3)(4)(0.5)(60) = (0.2)(0.3)(120) = (0.06)(120) = 7.2$

So the answer is option B.

**20) Answer (B)**

$\frac{16}{19}$ = 0.8421

$\frac{13}{14}$ = 0.9286

$\frac{11}{12}$ = 0.9166

$\frac{7}{9}$ = 0.7778

Hence, option B is the right answer.

**21) Answer (B)**

Let us assume that B got 10x. Hence, A must have got 6x and C must have got 15x. We have been given that 15x – 6x = 1350

=> 9x = 1350

=> x = 150

Thus, C must have got 150*15 = 2250

**22) Answer (B)**

Let his total salary be 100x. So he spends 30 % on rent. Now, remaining salary is 70x. Thus, 14x is spent on food. After this 56x will remain and hence he must deposit 28x in bank. Thus, amount deposited in the bank is twice the amount spent on food. Hence, the required answer will be 700.

**23) Answer (D)**

We have been given that x + (5/x) – x = x/20

5/x = x/20

=>x*x = 100

Therefore, x = 10.

Hence, option D is the right answer.

**24) Answer (C)**

We know that $19^2 = 361$

and the value of $0.03610 = 361 \times 10^{-4}$

Therefore, $\sqrt{0.03610} = 19 \times 10^{-2} = 0.19$

**25) Answer (B)**

Let the numbers be x and y

30% * x = 4y/5

3x/10 = 4y/5

So, x: y = 40: 15 = 8 : 3
