**Solution:**

Q1-5 . SOL (1- 5): Explanation

Total number of girls in St. Xavier college and Vijaya college = 210 × 2 =420

Let, Number of boys in St. Xavier college = x

And, Number of boys in Vijaya college = y

ATQ,

x + y = 810 …(i)

2/3x+2/5y=420…(ii)

On solving (i) & (ii)

x = 360, y = 450

Number of girls in St. Xavier college =2/3×360 =240

Number of girls in Vijaya college =2/5×450

= 180

SOL 1: C

Required%=180/240×100 =75%

SOL 2: D

Girls in ‘X’ college = 2 × 320 – 240 = 400

Total no. of students in ‘X’ colleges =125/100×[360+240] = 750

Number of boys in ‘X’ college = 750 – 400 = 350

SOL 3: D

Required difference

= 450 + 180 – 360 – 240

= 630 – 600

= 30

SOL 4: B

Number of boys in ‘Y’ college =4509×13=650

Number of girls in ‘Y’ college =80100×180 = 144

Total number of students in ‘Y’ college = 650 + 144 = 794

SOL 5: E

Required%= (450 –360)/360×100 =25%

SOL 6: A

Length of platform = 21 × 19 – 216 = 183 m

Let n boxes are added

216 + 183 + 21n = 21 × 26

21n = 147

n = 7

SOL 7: E

B will complete the work alone in = ¾ * 36 = 27 days

A 36 3

108

B 27 4Let total units of work = 108No. of units done by A in 1 day = 3No. of units done by B in 1 day = 4Total work done in 2 days = 7 unitsWork done in 30 days = 7 × 15 = 105 units Remaining work will be done by A in = (108 – 105)/3 = 1 day

SOL 8: A

A + B = 41 …(i)

C -1 = A + 2

C = A + 3 and A + 4 = B – 1 ⇒B = A + 5 …(ii)

From (i) + (ii)

A = 18 years

B = 18 + 5 = 23 years

C = 18 + 3 = 21 years

A/D = 3/4

D = 4 / 3 * 18 = 24

∴Required difference = 24 – 21 = 3 years

SOL 9 : D

Probability of drawing one green ball = X/(12+X) = 2/5

X = 8

Required probability =

^{5}c_{2}/^{15C}_{2}= (5 * 4) /( 15 * 14 ) = 2 /21
SOL 10 : C

Age of New man = 28 + 28 = 56 yr.
