Answers & Solutions:

1. Answer-d

assume he has 100 l juice.
adding 10 % extra water new amount of juice= 110l
adding 10% water, new juice= 121 l
2. Answer-a
Its obvious
the answer is 25 % . no need of any calculation but during exams, we feel like
it must not be that simple and sometimes start calculating and waste  time.
3. Answer-c
Let cp of
one article be rs 1
Sp = rs
Again new
sp = (1.25*1.2)=1.5
If he
initially sells 100 articles, cp = 100*1=rs 100
Sp =
100*1.25= rs 125
New sp =
75*1.5=112.5 ( as 25% articles were lost)
New gain %=
12.5 %
4. Answer-c
Only 90% of
the manufactured pens are delivered for sale.
Let M be
the manufacturing cost of each pen.
income including profit=(8000*M)*1.25
This income
is obtained by selling 90% manufactured pens at rs10 i.e. 7200*10.
5. Answer-b
profit=20 %

6. Answer-c
Let total
profit = Rs 100
Amount left
after donation= 80
 Now 5x/8  
– 3x/8=1200
Where x is
the amount left after reinvestment
7. Answer- b
total cost=
Rs 120,000
sale  or revenue= 2000*9+6000*10=78000
8. Answer-c
possible profit=max possible difference between sp and cp.
Means max
sp and min cp
Cp min= Rs
19m=399, m
is an integer
Sp max=
699..let us take it as 697 ( approx for easier calculation)
697 =17k, k
is an integer
So max
profit= 697-399= Rs 298
9. Answer-a
Let actual
price of 1 g goods= Rs 1
He sells
goods equal to 90 Rs only ( 10 g less)
marked price = Rs 1.8 and sp= 1.35 for 1 g
Thus he
gives goods worth Rs 90 and takes Rs 135 after 25 % discount
profit= 135-90/90 × 100= 50%
10. Answer- b
Let number
of sweets = 100
Cp of each
sweet= Rs 1
Total cp =
Rs 100
