Question No 2

The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let
C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x)

So, (20-x)/x * 100 = 25
2000 - 100x = 25x
125x = 2000

Hence, x = 16.

Question No 7

A man rows 1 km upstream in 20 minutes and 1 km downstream in 15 minutes. What is his speed of rowing in still water?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
20 minutes = 20/60 = 1/3 hours
Upstream distance covered in 1/3 hours = 1 Km
Upstream distance covered in 1 hour = 1/(1/3) = 3 Km
Upstream speed = y = 3 Km/h

Now
15 minutes = 15/60 = 1/4 hours
Downstream distance covered in 1/4 hours = 1 Km
Downstream distance covered in 1 hour = 1/(1/4) = 4 Km
Downstream speed = 4 Km/h

speed of rowing = (1/2)*(4+3) = 7/2 = 3.5 Km/h.

Question No 8

Let A's age in 1985 was X.

Given that
X-10 = 3(B-10)
X-10 = 3B-30
3B-X = 20 ...(1)

and
X-6 = 2(B-6)
X-6 = 2B-12
2B-X = 6 ...(2)

By simultaneously solving equation(1) and (2) we have
X = 22

Hence A's age in 1985 was 22 years..

Joseph's speed of rowing in still water is 12 km/h and he finds that it takes him twice as long to row up as to row down the river. Find the speed of water in the river.

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let speed of water is x.
Speed in still water = u = 12 Km/h

As downstream speed is double of upstream speed

(12+x) = 2(12-x)
12+x = 24-2x
3x = 12
x = 4

Hence speed of water is 4 Km/h..

Question No 19

Ages of A and B are in ratio 8/7. 27 years ago their ages were in the ratio 5/4. The age of B is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Given that
A/B = 8/7 ...(1)

and
(A-27)/(B-27) = 5/4
5B-135 = 4A-108 ...(2)

From equation(1) we have
A = (8/7)B

Put value of A in equation(2)
5B-135 = 4*[(8/7)B]-108
5B-27 = (32/7)B
5B-(32/7)B = 27
(35B-32B)/7 = 27
3B = 189
B = 63

Hence the age of B is 63 years..

A can finish a work in 24 days, B in 9 days and C in 12 days. B and C start the work but are forced to leave after 3 days. The remaining work was done by A in

Select the correct answer


Solution!
(B + C)'s 1 day's work = (1/9 + 1/12) = 7/36

Work done by B and C in 3 days = (7/36 * 3)
= 7/12

Remaining work = (1 - 7/12)
= 5/12

Now, 1/24 work is done by A in 1 day.

So, 5/12 work is done by A in (24 * 5/12) = 10 days..
