### Answers & Explanations:

1.
The number value of the dice rolled first is smaller than the number value  of the  second means the following cases:
Dice1         Dice2
1                 no value lesser than one
2                  1
3                  1,2
4                  1,2,3
5                  1,2,3,4
6                  1,2,3,4,5

Hence 15 such possible cases exist.
Probability=possible cases/total sample space
=15/36=5/12 (ans)

2.

 Subham Akarsh Shaurya After 3 months 16000×3 12000×3 – After 3 months 11000×9 17000×9 – After 3 months â€œ â€œ 21000×6 Profit share 16×3+11×9 12×3+17×9 21×6 Ratio 7 9 6
Difference of shares of Akarsh and Shaurya=9-6=3

Hence difference of their profits=   3/22
x 72900= Rs. 40500  (Ans)

3.
Ans-b

Solve by options
In option b, let elder son get 21 lakhs, then younger gets 14 lakhs
According to the question,
After when both sons attain the age of 21 years, they both will get the same amount of money.
Hence for the elder son, the money gets invested for 5 years and for younger son the money is invested for 12.5 years at 10 % S.I.
Hence at 21 years the elder son will get=
21+(50/100)x21=31.5 Lakhs
At 21 years, the younger son will get=
14+(125/100)x14=31.5 Lakhs
Hence the condition is satisfied.
Option B=21 lakhs is the answer

4.

Profit of Garry ( on selling price) = 20/100 x 1800= Rs 360
Given for  Cisco=> 120% of CP=1800
Dividing both sides by 6 we get,
20% of CP=300
Hence Profit=300

Profit Garry-Profit Cisco=360-300= Rs 60 (Ans)

5.

Total sample space=100
Given  condition:  x+(100/x)>50
On solving , x2+100-50x>0
We get  2.(something)>x>47.(something)
Hence x has 55 satisfied values
Probability= 55/100=11/20 (ans)

6.
Ans-d

Banshee:
P=(Px4xr)/100=>r=25%
Shyam:
P(1+25/100)2   =25P/16
Again,
25P/16  x (2×25)/100 = 25P/32
Therefor total amount of banshee after 4 years=2P
Tota amount of Shyam after 4 years= 25P/16  +  25P/32  = 75P/32
Therefore difference in amount= 75P/32  – 2P= 11P/32 =2750
=>P=Rs.8000

7.
Ans-d
Let the speed of the boat be B and that of the river be R.
In 12 minutes the distance between boat and cap=12(B-R)+12R=12B
Now time taken by boat to reach the cap= 12B/{(B+R)-R)}=12 minutes
Total time=24 minutes
In 24 minutes the cap flew= 3km
So, 24/60   x R=3
=> R=7.5 kmph

8.
Ans- c
Initial 2 days (G+B+K=40%) +last 8 days(B+K=60%)
The efficiency of B and K is 7.5 %, Since B and K complete 60% work in 8 days and efficiency of G,B and K is 20%. It means efficiency of G alone is 12.5%= 20-7.5%
Now,

Number of days= 4x : 5x    ( B:K)
Efficiency=        5y:4y          (B:K)
Efficiency of B=5/9  x 7.5= 4.16%
Efficiency of K= 4/9 x 7.5=3.33%
Hence K(Krishna) has the least efficiency
Share of work done by him= 3.33%  x 10 = 33.33%
Share of amount= 33.33% of Rs 3000 = Rs 1000

9.Ans -C

=>L/2  x b=10000=Area of Madhuâ€™s land
For the given area, a square gives the minimum perimeter
L/2=b
=>bxb=10000
=>b=100m
Perimeter=4×100=400m
Expenses of fencing=5×400=Rs.2000

10. Ans- A
Solve by options
Let the length and breadth of the second rectangle is l and b respectively, Then the area of the second field is l x b
In option a, x=80, then, area of first field= l/5  x 5b=lb
Hence the area of Birlaâ€™s field =area of Ratanâ€™s field.
