2. 4kmph

3. 6kmph

4. 8kmph

5. None of these

**Solution:**

Q1.SOL: 2

X =8

Bag B = 5 R, 4 Y , 6 G

Probability = 5/15*4/14 = 2/21

Q2. SOL: 4

Speed of the boat in still water is 15 kmph

Speed downstream = (15+2) = 17 kmph

Speed upstream = (15-2) = 13 kmph

Let the distance between A and B be x km

x/17+(x/2)/13=30

x/17+x/26=30

43x/442=30

x=30*442/43 = 308.37 = 308km

distance between A and B = 308 km

Q3.SOL: 5

The days ratio of (Angel + Bala + Chitra) : (Bala + Chitra) = X:3X/2 = 2X:3x;

Efficiency ratio = 3X:2X

Efficiency of Angel = x.

(480/3X) = Rs.160

Amount received by Bala = Rs.120 &Chitra = 200

160:120:200 =4:3:5

1/4:1/3:1/5= 15:20:12;

(1/15+1/12+1/20)*Y = 1

Y = 5 days

Efficiency ratio = 3X:2X

Efficiency of Angel = x.

(480/3X) = Rs.160

Amount received by Bala = Rs.120 &Chitra = 200

160:120:200 =4:3:5

1/4:1/3:1/5= 15:20:12;

(1/15+1/12+1/20)*Y = 1

Y = 5 days

Q4. SOL: 1

The elder daughter’s money earns interest for (21 – 15) = 6 years @ 10% p.a simple interest

The younger daughter’s money earns interest for (21 – 10) = 11 years @ 10% p.a simple interest.

As the sum of money that each of the daughters get when they are 21 is the same,

x + (6*10*x/100)= (5,00,000 – x) +(11*10*[5,00,000-x]/100)

100x+60x = (5,00,000-x)+(55,000,000-110x)

160x =55,500,000-111x

271x = 55,500,000

X = 2,04,797

Q5. SOL: 2

50*12/60 = 10/60 * (50+x)

600 = 500 + 10x

x = 10 kmph

600 = 500 + 10x

x = 10 kmph

Q6. SOL: 2

Let the share of rakesh and prakash be R and P

R*(1+10/100)

We get R = 2420, so P = 2000

R*(1+10/100)

^{5}= (4420 – R)*(1+10/100)^{7}We get R = 2420, so P = 2000

Q7. SOL: 3

Possible preferences

P>M>5

M>5>P

P>5>M

M>P>5

5>P>M

5>M>P

Child picks Munch over Perk P(M5P), P(MP5) or P(5MP)

Then child prefers Munch over 5star P(M5P) P(MP5)

Probability = (1/6+1/6)/(1/6+1/6+1/6) =2/3

P>M>5

M>5>P

P>5>M

M>P>5

5>P>M

5>M>P

Child picks Munch over Perk P(M5P), P(MP5) or P(5MP)

Then child prefers Munch over 5star P(M5P) P(MP5)

Probability = (1/6+1/6)/(1/6+1/6+1/6) =2/3

Q8. SOL: 1

P(odd) = P(even) = 1/2

Sum of three numbers to be even cases

Even+ even+ even = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Even+ odd+ odd = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Odd+ odd + even = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Odd+ even + odd = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Probability = 1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8 = ½

Sum of three numbers to be even cases

Even+ even+ even = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Even+ odd+ odd = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Odd+ odd + even = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Odd+ even + odd = 1/2*1/2*1/2

Probability = 1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8 = ½

Q.9 SOL: 4

First person speed = 25 m/s * 18/5 = 90 kmph

Second person speed = 35 m/s * 18/5 = 126 kmph

First person covers 90 * 10 = 900km

900/450 = 2

Second person speed = 35 m/s * 18/5 = 126 kmph

First person covers 90 * 10 = 900km

900/450 = 2

speed of the current = y kmph

upstream speed = (x – y) kmph

downstream speed = (x + y)kmph

24/(x-y) + 28/(x+y) = 6

30/(x-y) + 21(x+y) = 13/2

X = 10kmph
