(2) 55 min

(3) 90 min

(4) 80 min

(5) None of these

Show Answer

ATQ;

xt = 3*x/7 (t + 2)

t = 90min

1. Simran has written the selling price of a saree on its tag 50% higher than its cost price. After bargaining with a customer she sells it at a discount of 20% and makes a profit of Rs. 480 on it. Find its cost price.

(1) 1650/-

(2) 3200/-

(3) 2000/-

(4) 1600/-

(5) 2500/-

Show Answer
Option: 4

Show Solution

Solution:

Suppose C.P. of the saree is 100x.

So, the M.P. is 150x.

After discount the S.P. is 150x * 80/100 = 120x.

ATQ;

150x – 120x = 480/-

So, x = 16/-

100x = 1600/-

1. Rina started a business by investing some money and Bina invested Rs. 3000 more than that of Rina. Rina remained in business for 7 months and Bina remained in business for 2 month more than Rina. Out of the total profit of Rs. 24,000, Bina got Rs. 4000 more than Rina. Find the capitals invested by Rina.

(1) 40,250/-

(2) 33,750/-

(3) 35,000/-

(4) 37,350/-

(5) None of these

Show Answer
Option: 2

Show Solution

Solution: Ratio of shared profit of Rina & Bina :

ATQ ;

X + (X + 4000) = 24,000

X = 10,000

Rina : Bina= 10,000/- : 14,000/- = 5:7

Suppose the investment of Rina is x & (Bina x+3000)

Rina : Bina =  7*x : 9(x+3000)

So, 7x : 9(x+3000) = 5 : 7

x = 33,750/-

1. The ratio of a man’s age and his son’s age is 5 : 3 and the product of their ages is 960. The ratio of their ages after 9 years will be:

(1) 7:3

(2) 9:2

(3) 33:49

(4) 11:7

(5) 49:33

Show Answer
Option: 5

Show Solution

Solution:

ATQ:

5x * 3x = 960

x= 8

Father’s age : Son’s age = 40 + 9 : 24 + 9 = 49:33

1. The cost price of five apple is equal to selling price of 8 cucumbers. If 360 cucumbers are sold at the rate of Rs. 20 per dozen then how many apples can be bought with this amount?

(1) 225

(2) 200

(3) 250

(4) 300

(5) None of these

Show Answer
Option: 1

Show Solution

Solution:

Cost of 360 cucumbers = 20/12 * 360 = 600/-

C.P. of one cucumber = 8/5 * 20/12 = 8/3

So, the required answer : 600 * ⅜ = 225

1. A man invested Rs.29900 for both of his sons at rate of 1% SI per annum when their ages were 5 years and 8 years.

(1) 18

(2) 13

(3) 14

(4) 17

(5) 12

Show Answer
Option: 5

Show Solution

Solution:

X+Y = 29900/-

X/Y = ⅝

X = 11500/-

Y = 18400/-

Suppose their age will be t years.

ATQ;

11500 + 11500 * (t-5) *1 /100 = 18400 + 18400 * (t-8) *1/100

t = 12 years.
