Q9. B is twice efficient as

Q10. The speeds of the scooter,
car and train are in the ratio of 1 : 4 : 16. If all of them cover equal
distance the ratio of time taken/velocity for each of the vehicle is:

a)
256 : 16 : 1 (b) 1 : 4 : 16 (c) 16 : 4 : 1 (d) 16 :
1 : 4 (e) None

Solution:

1.Sol: E

Cost of Tv = 105/1.25 = 84
Rs.

Cost of Lappy = 70/1.4 = 50
Rs.

Total Profit = 20%

Total Cost = 200/1.2 =
500/3

Cost of Mouse = (500/3) –
84-50 = Rs. 98/3

Hence Loss on Mouse =
[(98/3)-25] / (98/3) * 100 = 23.4

2. Sol: B

Referring to previous

Cost of Mouse = 25/0.50 =
50

∴Total cost = 84 + 50 + 50 = Rs.184

Total sale = Rs.200

Profit = (200 – 184)/184 *
100 = 8.7%

3. Sol: C

Amount at the end of the
1st year after repayment = 6000 × 1.05 – 1200 = Rs 5,100.

Therefore, amount at the
beginning of the 2nd year will be Rs 5,100.

Amount at the end of the
2nd year after repayment = 5,100 × 1.05 – 1200 = Rs 4,155.

Therefore, amount at the
beginning of the 3rd year will be Rs 4,155.

4. Sol: E

Volume of the
larger sphere = Total volume of 1000 smallerspheres

4/3 Ï€(10)

^{3 }= r = 1 cm
Surface area of
the larger sphere= 4Ï€(10)

^{2}= 400Ï€ cm2
Total surface
area of 1000 smaller spheres

= 1000 × 4Ï€(1)

^{2}= 4000Ï€ cm^{2}
Therefore, increase in the surface area of the metal= 4000 Ï€ – 400 Ï€ =
3600 Ï€ = 9 × 400 Ï€ cm2

Hence, surface
area of the metal is increased by 9 times.

5.Sol: C

The average of 7
consecutive numbers will be the 4th number in the sequence.

Let the 4th number be x.

When the next 3 numbers are
also added, the average will

be the mean of the 5th and
the 6th of the sequence = (2x+3)/2 = x+1.5

Hence, the average shall
increase by 1.5.

6. Sol: C

Let the cost price of each article be Re.1 and selling price of each
article be Rs.x.

S.P. of 100
articles = C.P of 100 articles + Profit

=100x = 100 + 75x

=25x = 100 or x =
4

Profit = 4-1 /1
*100 = 300%

7. Sol: B

Total time spent
in Mathematics home work

Time spent in
home work / 3

= [45/360 * 24]
/ 3 = 1 Hr.

Time spent on
remaining subject = 3-1 = 2hr

8. Sol: A

Due to 20% reduction in price,
the person can save Rs.48 and hence can purchase 6 kg extra sugar. Therefore,
new cost of sugar

48/6 = 8

As this new price is 20%
less than the original price, original

price of sugar is

8/0.8
= 10

9. Sol: B

A 15 15 1

B 7.5 2

11+2x = 15

2x = 4

X = 2.

10. Sol: A

10. Sol: A

d/y, d/4y, d/16y

1:1/(4*4):1/(16*16)

256:16:1
