    Time required (Hours/bag)    

Machine A
Machine B
Standard Bag
Deluxe Bag

The total time available on machine A is 700 hours and on machine B is 1250 hours. Among the following production plans, which one meets the machine availability constraints and maximizes the profit?

(1) Standard 75 bags, Deluxe 80 bags  
(2)Standard 100 bags, Deluxe 60 bags

Q10.A right angle triangle with height 5 cm and base 12 cm. This triangle is rotated once accordingly its heights. Find the curved surface area of the cone obtained?

(1) 146 π      (2) 136 π      (3) 156 π      (4) 166 π      (5) None of these

Q1. SOL:   1
Let the amount of investment with each one be Rs. 400, then Hari lal = [400(1.1)2]
Hari Prasad = [100(1.1)2] + [300 + (300*r*2)/100]          
[400(1.1)2] = [100(1.1)2] + [300 + (300*r*2)/100]
R = 10.5 %

Q2. SOL:   2
Interest on 22500 = 0.1 * 22500 = 2250
Charges for managing concern = 60*12 = 720
If yearly profit is X then A & B share = x/2
x/2 – 2250 + 720 = ½(x/2 – 720 +2250)
x = 9180 Rs.

Q3. SOL:   3
Total age of X person initially = 60 X year
Total age of X person finally = 60x – 52 - 68 + y +72 = 60x +y -48
60x + y – 48 = 61x
Y – 48 = x
As 54 < y < 64, 6< x < 16
As X is a perfect square, x = 9 & y = 57

Q4. SOL:   5
A = ( H+E+P ) / 3 = 70
B = E – H = 10
C = B + P = 120, So marks of phy can’t be determined

Q5. SOL:  2
A = R – Q = 100
B = P = 270
C = Q : R = 3:7
So, A & C are sufficient to answer the question.

Q6. SOL:     1
 Let length of train be L, and speed be = m/s
A = L/S = 6
B = (L+L2)/(S-10) = 12
C = (L+40)/S = 18
So, we can find speed of train using A & C

Q7. SOL: 4

Q8. SOL: 3

Q.9 SOL:   1

Let ‘x’ be the number of standard bags and ‘y’ be the number of deluxe bags.
Thus, 4x + 5y ≤ 700 and 6x + 10y  ≤ 1250
Among the choices, 3 and 4 do not satisfy the second equation.
Choice 2 is eliminated as in order to maximize profits the number of deluxe bags should be higher than the number of standard bags

Q10. SOL:   3

Curved surface area = 22/7 * r * l = 22/7 * 12 * 13 =20
