a)12

b)16

c)18

d)20

Answer: b)16

Solution:

Let us assume that he buy X number of pens, pencils and sketch pens.

Then 2.50 x X + 3 x X + 5 x X = 168

10.50X = 168

X = 168 / 10.5 = 16

Hence he buys 16 numbers of pencils, pens, sketch pens respectively.

a)Rs.250

b)Rs.150

c)RS.550

d)Rs.240

Solution :

Let the amount paid by Aarthi be Rs.X

Then, the amount paid by Prabha = Rs. X + 120

The total amount paid = Rs.600 = X + X + 120 = 2X + 120 = X = 240

Thus the amount paid by Aarthi is Rs.240

a)Rs.15900

b)Rs.10350

c)RS.11550

d)Rs.12420

Answer :b)Rs.10350

Solution :

Let the total number of apples be X.

Then X = 30X / 100 + 315

70X / 100 = 315

X=3150 / 7 = 450

Now 30% of X = 30 x 450 / 100 = 135

He sells 135 apples at the rate of Rs.30 per apple and 315 at the rate of Rs.20 per apple

Then the total selling price = 135 x 30 + 315 x 20 = 4050 + 6300 =Rs.10350

Hence the answer is Rs.10350

a)Rs.6481

b)Rs.5689

c)RS.6819

d)Rs.5181

Solution :

Let the total amount be Rs.X

After getting deduction the amount will be X - 650

And after paying the tax Rs.169,

Rs.6000 = X - 650 + 169 = X - 481.

X =6481

Hence she buys material worth Rs.6481

**Question 19 **If two-third of two-seventh of a number is 60, then two-fifteenth of that number is

a)60 b)42 c)315 d)21**Answer : b)42Solution :**

Let the number be X.

Then 2/3 x 2/7 x X =60

X = 60 x 7 x 3 / 4 = 315

Then, 2/15 of 315 = 2/15 x 315 = 42.

Hence the required number is 42

a)60

b)42

c)10

d)12

Solution :

Let the consecutive three integers be X, X + 2 and X + 4

Then, 2(X + 4) = 3X

X = 8

Now X + 2 = 10

The required second integer is 10

a)60

b)42

c)10

d)12

Solution :

Let the number be X

Decreasing 2 from X

X - 2 = 80 x (1/X)

X^2 - 2X = 80

X^2 -2x -80 = 0

(X-10)(X+8) = 0

x=10,-8

X has two values, but among the given options X value should be 10

(3) 17

(4) 31

(5) 9

Ans : 63.5/100 of 8924.2 + ?/100 of 5324.4 = 6827.5862

**Question 33 ** A train of length 150 meters can cross a bridge in 40 seconds when travelling at a speed of 40km/hr. Then what is the length of the bridge?

a)180m

b)182

c)183

d)185**Answer : c)183**

Let the length of the bridge be X.

The speed of the train = 40km/hr = 40 x 5/18 m/sec = 100/9 m/sec.

The time taken to cross the bridge = 40 seconds.

Then, [150 + X ] / 30 = 100/9

150 + X = 3000 /9

X = 3000/9 - 150 = 1650/9 = 183.33

Hence the answer is 183 m.

a)180m

b)210

c)183

d)185**Answer : b)210Solution:**

Given that,

The speed of the train = 50.4km/hr = 50.4 x 5/18 m/sec = 14 m/sec

The train crosses a bike(standing object) in 25 seconds.Then,

Length of the train = (14 x 25)m = 350 m.

Now, let the length of the bridge is X m.

the train crosses the bridge in 40 seconds.

Then, (X + 350)/40 = 14

X + 350 = 14 x 40 = 560

X = 210

Hence the bridge is 210m long.

a)4.76sec

b)5.76sec

c)8.92sec

d)6.14sec**Answer : b)5.76secSolution:**

Given that the speed of the train and a cyclist is 70km/hr and 5km/hr respectively.

Then, the Speed of train relative to cyclist = (70 + 5) km/hr = 75 km/hr = 75 x 5/18 = 125/6 m/sec.

The time taken to cross the cyclist = 120 / (125/6) = 120 x 6/125 =5.76 sec

hence the answer is 5.76 seconds.
