**Solution:**

**Q1. SOL: C**

From Statement I,

D – C < C – B

B + D < 2C ; From Statement II, D – C > B – A

A + D > B + C

A + D/2 > A + B + C + D / 4

From Statement III,

D – B > C – A

D + A > C + B

**Q2. SOL: D**

C = x

From I and II

C = x, B = 2x, A = (3/2 * 2x) => A = 3x

From II and III

C = x, B = 2x, A = 3x

From I and III

C = x, A = 3x, B = (2/3 * 3x) => B = 2x

A:B:C = 3:2:1, A’s share = (3000 * (3/6)) = 1500

Thus any two of the three statements, are sufficient to answer the question.

**Q3. SOL: E**

Let the income of Mr.X = y

From I and II

15% of y = 4500 => y = 30000

From II and III

4/5th of expenditure = 20400 => Expenditure = Rs. 25500, Savings = Rs.4500

Income = 25500 + 4500 = 30000

From I and III

4/5 of 85% of x = 20400

x = 30000

Thus any two of the three statements, are sufficient to answer the question.

From I and II

15% of y = 4500 => y = 30000

From II and III

4/5th of expenditure = 20400 => Expenditure = Rs. 25500, Savings = Rs.4500

Income = 25500 + 4500 = 30000

From I and III

4/5 of 85% of x = 20400

x = 30000

Thus any two of the three statements, are sufficient to answer the question.

**Q4. SOL: D**

From statement I, CP = 85% of x

From statement II and III, 2 = (3060 – x/ x)*100 x=3000

CP= 85% of 3000 = 2550

Thus All I, II and III together are required.

**Q5. SOL: D**

From statement I and II, Distance covered from Delhi to Mumbai Stoppage = 250*5 = 1250km

From Statement I, Time = Distance/speed = 1250/110

So all the three statements required to answer this question.

From Statement I, Time = Distance/speed = 1250/110

So all the three statements required to answer this question.

__INEQUALITY__**Q6. SOL: D**

80/100 * x = 140/100 * y

x = 7/4y

x + y = 440

7/4 y + y = 440

y = 160 ; x = 280

x = 7/4y

x + y = 440

7/4 y + y = 440

y = 160 ; x = 280

**Q7. SOL: B**

Let Ravi, Hari and Sanjay can type x, y, and z pages respectively in 1 h.

Therefore, they together can type 4(x + y + z) pages in 4 h

∴ 4(x + y + z) = 228

⇒ x + y + z = 57 …..(i)

Also, z – y = y – x

i.e., 2y = x + z ……(ii)

5z = 7x ……(iii)

From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get

3y = 57

⇒ y = 19

From Eq. (ii), x + z = 38

x = 16 and z = 22

Therefore, they together can type 4(x + y + z) pages in 4 h

∴ 4(x + y + z) = 228

⇒ x + y + z = 57 …..(i)

Also, z – y = y – x

i.e., 2y = x + z ……(ii)

5z = 7x ……(iii)

From Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get

3y = 57

⇒ y = 19

From Eq. (ii), x + z = 38

x = 16 and z = 22

**Q8. SOL: A**

Outlet pipe Efficiency = 100/(6) = 16.66%

**Q.9 SOL: A**

Total Balls = 15

Probability = 11c4/15c4 = 22/91

One is black = 1 – 22/91 = 69/91

Probability = 11c4/15c4 = 22/91

One is black = 1 – 22/91 = 69/91

**Q10.SOL: B**

Work done by the two pipes in 1 hour = (1/12)+(1/18) = (15/108).

Time taken by these pipes to fill the tank = (108/15)hrs = 7 hours 12 min.

Due to leakage, time taken to fill the tank = 7 hours 12 min + 48 min = 8 hours

Work done by two pipes and leak in 1 hour = 1/8.

Work done by the leak in 1 hour =(15/108)-(1/8)=(1/72).

Leak will empty the full cistern in 72 hours.

Time taken by these pipes to fill the tank = (108/15)hrs = 7 hours 12 min.

Due to leakage, time taken to fill the tank = 7 hours 12 min + 48 min = 8 hours

Work done by two pipes and leak in 1 hour = 1/8.

Work done by the leak in 1 hour =(15/108)-(1/8)=(1/72).

Leak will empty the full cistern in 72 hours.
