Solutions :-

1. C
2. D
3. D
4. A
5. A
6. A
7. E
8. B

1) 9,00,000
Average % profit = 22
So, total % profit = 22×2 = 44%
44 – 40 = 4% (40 arrived after 20×2)
4% = 360
100% = 9,00,000

2) 75

20/25 = 4/5 = 80% (ri8 in first part)

80%                60%

66.67%

20/3             40/3

1:2

1= 25
So, 3 = 75 and.

3) no profit no loss

Two case occurred here one is loss of 20% and other is profit of 33.33%.
( I try to solve this by reciprocal method which is also useful in further questions)

Case 1) Loss 20%
So it sold at 4/5

Case 2) profit 33.33%
So it sold at 4/3

In this type of questions S.P is supposed to L.C.M of numenator of both reciprocal…

So, in Case1)
S.P = 4
C.P= 4*5/4 = 5

Similarly in case 2)
S.P = 4
C.P = 4*3/4= 3

Total S.P = 4+4 = 8
Total C.P = 5+3= 8

So no profit no loss.

(It looks long in explanation but believe me it’s very short and conceptual way to get right answer quickly. It’s not trick. It’s concept.)

4) 1/12 lakh loss
same as question no 3

Case 1)
Loss 20%
It sold at 4/5

Case 2)
Profit 20%
It sold at 6/5

S.P in case (1) = 12 (LCM of both numenator)
C.P = 12*5/4 = 15

S.P in case (2) = 12
C.P = 12*5/6 = 10

Total S.P = 24
C.P = 25

When each S.P is 12,  loss is Rs 1
So when each S.P is 1 lakh, loss is 1/12 lakh

5) 20% loss
In this types of questions always remember SP/CP.

120/100 ( he tried to get 20% profit while buying)

1000/900 ( he used to 900gm instead of 1000gm it means he paid C.P of 900gm but take money of 1000gm)

60/100 ( he gave 40% discount)

Multiply all three to get final reciprocal which is 4/5.
It means loss of 1/5 = 20%

6) 40% profit

Same rule as question no 5
SP/CP =
140/100
*100/80
*80/100

= 7/5
Profit % = 2/5= 40 %

7) none of these

Expenditure = price × Consumption
12/11 = 180/140  * X
X = 28/33
It means reduction = 5/33%

8) 32.25 days

Total work is 120 unit ( LCM of 24, 30 and 40)
A = 24 days ( 5 [email protected]) works for 1 day =  5 unit
B = 30 days ( 4 [email protected]) works for 2 days = 8 unit
C = 40 days ( 3 [email protected]) works for 3 days = 9 unit

6 days = 22 units
5×6days = 22×5 units
30 days = 110 units
31st day = 115 units ( 5 units by A)
32nd day =119 units ( 4 units by B)
Remaining 1 unit will being done by B in 1/4 day

So total day is 32.25 days.
