__Solutions:__
1. The

series is, 11, 11+3, 14+9, 23+27….

series is, 11, 11+3, 14+9, 23+27….

2. The series is 7 + (13 + 1) = 9,

9 + (23

+ 1) = 18, 18 + (33 + 1) = 46,

+ 1) = 18, 18 + (33 + 1) = 46,

46 + (43

+ 1) = 111, 111 + (53 + 1) = 237

+ 1) = 111, 111 + (53 + 1) = 237

3. 5; The

series is +17, +34, +51, +68, +85,

series is +17, +34, +51, +68, +85,

…

ie 7 + 17 =

24, 24 + 34 = 58, 58 + 51 = 109,

24, 24 + 34 = 58, 58 + 51 = 109,

109 + 68 =

177, 177 + 85 = 262, …

177, 177 + 85 = 262, …

4. The series is +(1)2, â€“(2)2,

+(3)2, â€“(4)2, +(5)2, …

+(3)2, â€“(4)2, +(5)2, …

ie 19 + (1)2

= 20, 20 â€“ (2)2 = 16,

= 20, 20 â€“ (2)2 = 16,

16 + (3)2

= 25, 25 â€“ (4)2 = 9, 9 + (5)2 = 34

= 25, 25 â€“ (4)2 = 9, 9 + (5)2 = 34

5. The

series is +1.8, +2.2, + 2.6, +3,

series is +1.8, +2.2, + 2.6, +3,

+3.4, …

ie 7.4 + 1.8

= 9.2, 9.2 + 2.2 = 11.4, 11.4 +

= 9.2, 9.2 + 2.2 = 11.4, 11.4 +

2.6 = 14, 14

+ 3 = 17, 17 + 3.4 = 20.4

+ 3 = 17, 17 + 3.4 = 20.4

6. Let the

speed of the boat be 7x and that of the stream be x.

speed of the boat be 7x and that of the stream be x.

Then,

upstream speed = (7x â€“ x) = 6x

upstream speed = (7x â€“ x) = 6x

And,

downstream speed = 7x + x = 8x

downstream speed = 7x + x = 8x

Now,

upstream speed = 4.2/14×60 = 18 kmph

upstream speed = 4.2/14×60 = 18 kmph

So, 6x = 18

x = 3 kmph

Thus, speed

of stream = 3 kmph

of stream = 3 kmph

Downstream

speed = 8 Ã— 3 = 24 kmph

speed = 8 Ã— 3 = 24 kmph

Time taken

downstream to cover 17.6 km

downstream to cover 17.6 km

17.6/24×60=

44 minutes

44 minutes

7. Ratio of profits = 1500 Ã— 12 : 6B : 4C : : 5

: 3 : 3

: 3 : 3

Capital of B

= (1500 x 12)/6 x 3/5 = 1800

= (1500 x 12)/6 x 3/5 = 1800

Capital of C

= (1500 x 12)/4 x 3/5 = 2700

= (1500 x 12)/4 x 3/5 = 2700

Amount of (B

+ C) = 2700 + 1500 = Rs 4500

+ C) = 2700 + 1500 = Rs 4500

8. Side of

square = 567 = 23.81

square = 567 = 23.81

Length of

rectangle = 23.81 + 4 = 27.81

rectangle = 23.81 + 4 = 27.81

Breadth of

rectangle = 23.81 â€“ 4 = 19.81m

rectangle = 23.81 â€“ 4 = 19.81m

Area of

rectangle = 27.81 Ã— 19.81

rectangle = 27.81 Ã— 19.81

= 550.91 â†’

551m

551m

9. Let the cost price of A be Rs x. Then the

cost price of B will be 1.2x and the cost price of C will be 1.2x Ã— 1.10 =

1.32x

cost price of B will be 1.2x and the cost price of C will be 1.2x Ã— 1.10 =

1.32x

Then the

cost price of D = x Ã— 1.2 Ã— 1.10 + 116 = Rs 1.32x + 116

cost price of D = x Ã— 1.2 Ã— 1.10 + 116 = Rs 1.32x + 116

Now, 1.32x +

116 â€“ x = 500

116 â€“ x = 500

or, 0.32x =

500 â€“ 116 = 384

500 â€“ 116 = 384

x = 384/32

x 100 = 1200

x 100 = 1200

Bâ€™s cost

price = 1200 Ã— 1.2 = Rs 1440

price = 1200 Ã— 1.2 = Rs 1440

Hence B paid

to A Rs 1440.

to A Rs 1440.

10. Ratio of

men to women

men to women

(15 Ã— 10)M =

(25 Ã— 8)W

(25 Ã— 8)W

or, 150M =

200W

200W

or, 3M = 4W

W = Â¾ M

1 manâ€™s work

= 1/150

= 1/150

(10W + 3M =)

21/2 M can do the work in

21/2 M can do the work in

1/150

x 21/2 = 7/100 days

x 21/2 = 7/100 days

65/100

work done by 10 women in (?) days.

work done by 10 women in (?) days.

8 women â€“ 1

work â€“ 25 days

work â€“ 25 days

10 women â€“ 65/100

work in 25 x 8/10 x 65/100 = 13

days

work in 25 x 8/10 x 65/100 = 13

days
