b) 15%
c) 10%
d) 20%

let the income of person be Rs y So his expenditure be 75% of income which is = 0.75y Saving = y- 0.75y = 0.25yNow after increment of 20 % in income the new income becomes = 1.2y Given that bew expenditure is 10% more than previous one.So , new expenditure is = 1.1 × 0.75y = 0.825y New savings = 1.2y – 0.825y = 0.375yPercentage increase in savings =$\frac {0.375y-0.25y}{0.25y}$×100 = 50%

Let us assume that the fruit seller buys 100 oranges for Rs. 100
He sells 40 oranges for Rs. 100
Profit obtained = 100 – 40 = Rs. 60
% Profit = $\frac{60}{40} \times 100 = 150$%
Now, he sells 80% of the remaining oranges at half the profit
i.e., he sells 48 oranges at 75% profit.
Selling Price of 48 oranges = 48 + 75% of 48 = Rs. 84
Rest of them are thrown away.
Total SP = 100 + 84 = 184
Profit = 184 – 100 = 84
% Profit = 84%

Let assume that he buys 1000 gram of quantity at 1000 Rs So, Cost Price of 1 gram = 1 Rs Now as it is mentioned that he is selling only 850 gram in 1000 Rs So , selling Price of 1 gram = $\frac{1000}{850}$ = Rs 1.1764 So profit percentage = $\frac{SellingPrice-CostPrice}{CostPrice}$ = $\frac{1.1764-1}{1}\times100$ = 17.64 % = $17\frac{11}{17}$%

Let the present age of Golu and Polu be ‘x’ and ‘y’ years
Thus, $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{17}{19}$
After 5 years the age of Polu will be 81 years.
So, y+5 = 81
y = 76
So, x = $\frac{17*76}{19}$ = 68 years
Hence, option B is the right answer.

Let the present age of Y and Z be y and z respectively.
So, y:z = 5:8
Also,
y-9 = 7*(z-9)/13
13y-117 = 7z – 63
13y-7z = 54
13*5z/8 – 7z = 54
9z/8 = 54
z = 48 years
Hence, option C is the right answer.

Let the present age of Monu and Sonu be ‘x’ and ‘y’ respectively.
So, x:y = 13:11
It is given that,
$\frac{x+4}{y-4} = \frac{5}{3}$
3x + 12 = 5y – 20
3x-5y = -32
3*$\frac{13y}{11}$ – 5y = -32
-16y = -32*11
y = 22
So, x = 26
Thus, y-x = – 22 + 26 = 4 years
Hence, option A is the right answer.

Let’s say price of article is 100
After first increase its price will be 100(1+ $\frac{10}{100}$) = 110
Now second increment will be applied on 110
Hence new price will be 110(1+ $\frac{10}{100}$ ) = 121
Which is 21 more than before any increment
Hence total percentage increment = 21

Let’s say side of square is 100 unit
its area will be $10^{4} unit^{2}$
after 10% increment its value will be 110 unit
and area will become $1.21 \times 10^{4} unit^{2}$
change in area $.21 \times 10^{4} unit^{2}$
percentage change will be 21

Marked price = 480
discount = 10%
Selling price = 480 – $\frac{480 \times 10}{100}$ = 432
Gain = 8%
Cost price = $432 \times (\frac{100}{108})$ = 400
After no discount ,gain will be = 480-400 = 80
Percentage gain = $\frac{80}{400} \times 100$ = 20%

Let the fraction be $x$ According to ques, => $x+\frac{1}{x}=\frac{113}{56}$ => $\frac{x^2+1}{x}=\frac{113}{56}$ => $56x^2-113x+56=0$ => $56x^2-49x-64x+56=0$=> $7x(8x-7)-8(8x-7)=0$=> $(7x-8)(8x-7)=0$=> $x=\frac{8}{7},\frac{7}{8}$=> Ans – (A)
$\frac{3}{4}=0.75$$\frac{5}{12}=0.42 \frac{13}{16}=0.81 \frac{16}{29}=0.55 \frac{3}{8}=0.37Descending order = \frac{13}{16}>\frac{3}{4}>\frac{16}{29}>\frac{5}{12}>\frac{3}{8} => Ans – (C) 12) Answer (D) Let total work to be done = L.C.M. (21,28) = 84Manish can complete the work in 21 days, => Manish’s efficiency = \frac{84}{21}=4 units/day Similarly, Karan’s efficiency = \frac{84}{28}=3 units/dayNow, (Manish+Karan)’s 7 day’s work = (4+3)7=49 unitsFraction of work that is left = \frac{(84-49)}{84}=\frac{35}{84}=\frac{5}{12}=> Ans – (D) 13) Answer (A) Given factions \frac{4}{3},-\frac{2}{9},-\frac{7}{8},\frac{5}{12} Multiply 72(LCM) with each fraction, then we get96, -16, -63, 30Arrange them in ascending order i.e -63 < -16 < 30 < 96 (or) -\frac{7}{8}<-\frac{2}{9}<\frac{5}{12}<\frac{4}{3}Hence, option A is the correct answer. 14) Answer (D) Let the sum = Rs. x and rate of interest = r\%=> Amount after 8 years = Rs. 2x=> Simple interest = (2x-x)=Rs. xAlso, SI = \frac{P \times r \times t}{100}=> \frac{x \times r \times 8}{100}=x=> r=\frac{100}{8}=12\frac{1}{2}\%=> Ans – (D) 15) Answer (A) Amount obtained after 1 year = Rs. 2400Amount obtained after 2 years = Rs. 2880=> Rate of interest = \frac{(2880-2400)}{2400}\times100= \frac{480}{24}=20\%=> Ans – (A) 16) Answer (B) Let Principal amount = Rs. 5x and interest = Rs. 8xLet rate of interest = r\% and time period = 8 years=> Simple interest = \frac{P\times R\times T}{100} => \frac{5x\times r \times 8}{100}=8x=> \frac{5r}{100}=1=> r=\frac{100}{5}=20\%=> Ans – (B) 17) Answer (A) Marked price = Rs. 3000After first discount of 15%, price of pen = 3000-(\frac{15}{100}\times3000)= 3000-450=Rs. 2550After 2nd discount of a\%, price = 2550-(\frac{a}{100}\times2550)=2142=> 25.5a=2550-2142=> 25.5a=408=> a=\frac{408}{25.5}=16\%=> Ans – (A) 18) Answer (B) Marked price = Rs. 4200 After first discount of 25%, price of pen = 4200-(\frac{25}{100}\times4200) = 4200-1050=Rs. 3150 After 2nd discount of y\%, price = 3150-(\frac{y}{100}\times3150)=2898 => 31.5y=3150-2898 => 31.5y=252 => y=\frac{252}{31.5}=8\% => Ans – (B) 19) Answer (D) Cost price = Rs. 1500Markup % = 25%=> Selling price = 1500+(\frac{25}{100}\times1500)= 1500+375=Rs. 1875Total cost price (including tax) = 1500+75=Rs. 1575$$\therefore$ Profit % = $\frac{(1875-1575)}{1575}\times100$= $\frac{300}{15.75}\approx 20\%$=> Ans – (D)
Let cost price = Rs. $100$Markup % = 20%=> Marked price = $100+(\frac{20}{100}\times100)$= $100+20=Rs.$ $120$After allowing discount of 5%, => Selling price = $120-(\frac{5}{100}\times120)$ = $120-6=Rs.$ $114$$\therefore$ Profit % = $\frac{(114-100)}{100}\times100=14\%$=> Ans – (A)
