__Answers & Solutions:__

**1) Answer (C)
**

CP * 110/100 = 220

So, CP = 200

To get a profit of 30%

SP = CP * 130/ 100 = 200 * 130/ 100 = 260 Rs.

**2) Answer (B)
**

Discount rate = 500* 100/6000= 8.33%

**3) Answer (C)
**

x * 1.05 * 1.05 – x * 1.05 = 420

implies x = 8000 Rs.

**4) Answer (B)
**

A’s profit = 10,000 x 9 x r/100

B’s profit = 18000 x t x r/100

But the profits are same so,

10,000 x 9 x r/100 = 18000 x t x r/100

so, t = 5 months.

**5) Answer (A)**

P x R X T / 100 is the simple interest

So, P x (R+3) x 2/100 – P x R x 2/ 100 = 450

Solving for P, we get P = 7500 Rs.

6) Answer (C)

$ P (1 + .05) ^ {3}$ – P= 630.5

Solving for P, we get P = 4000

**7) Answer (b)
**

The selling price for the first shopkeeper = 500 x .85 x .9 = 500 x .765

The selling price for the second shopkeeper = 500 x .91 x .84 = 500 x .7644

So, the customer benefits more from second shopkeeper.

**8) Answer (B)
**

The selling price for the first shopkeeper = 500 x .85 x .9 = 500 x .765

The selling price for the second shopkeeper = 500 x .91 x .84 = 500 x .7644

So, the customer benefits more from second shopkeeper.

**9) Answer (A)
**

S.I=P x r x t/100 , t in years

=(20,000 x 8 x 3)/( 100 x 12)=400

**10) Answer (C)**

Simple Interest=Principal×time×rate/100

=> 400=4000×2×r/100

∴r = 5
