**Answers :**

**1) Answer: a)**

On writing the digits in ascending order –

1, 4, 6, 6, 7, 7, 9, 9, 13, 14, 16, 17, 23, 26, 27, 47

Total number of terms (n) = 16 is even.

Median = [(n/2)^{th} term + (n/2+1)^{th} term]÷2

= (8^{th} rank + 9^{th} rank)/2 = (9 + 13)/2 = 22/2 = 11

**2) Answer: c)**

Total number of innings played by all five players = 6 × 9 = 54

Total number of innings of four players = 12 + 13 + 9 + 5 + 11 = 50

Total number of fifth player’s innings = 54 – 50 = 4

**3) Answer: a)**

Let, the amount of rice of Rs.5.4 per kg = x kg

According to the question,

x × 5.4 + 4.5 × 10 = 5.94 × (10 + x) ÷ 120 × 100

5.4x + 45 = 4.95 × (10 + x)

5.4x + 45 = 49.5 + 4.95x

5.4x – 4.95x = 49.5 – 45

0.45x = 4.5

x = 10 kg

**4) Answer: b)**

According to the survey, author Kabirdas(500) is the favorite of most people.

**5) Answer: d)**

Total respondents = 2250

Respondents who say their favourite author is Jayshankarprasad = 300

& respondents who say their favourite author is Kabirdas = 500

(Jayshankarprasad + Kabirdas) = 800

∴ Required Percentage = 800/2250 × 100 = 35.55%

**6) Answer: b) **

2250 people represent = 360°

⇒ 1 people represent = 360°/2250

∴ 400 people represent = 400/2250 × 360°= 64°

**7) Answer: a)**

∴ Total number of people who have responded to the survey = Jayshankarprasad + Kabirdas + Mahadeviverma + Raskhan + Sumitranandan pant + Surdas + Tulsidas = 2250

**8) Answer: c)**

Marked price of a shirt = Rs.800

Discount =20%

Selling price of Shirt = [Marked price ×(100- Discount %)]/100

= [800×(100-20)]/100 = (800×80)/100 = Rs.640

**9) Answer: b)**

½ = 0.5

¾ = 0.75

5/6 = 0.83

6/11 = 0.54

2/3 = 0.67

8/9 = 0.89

6/7 = 0.85

Biggest Fraction = 0.89 = 8/9

**10) Answer: c)**

9/29 = 0.31

13/33 = 0.39,

20/47 = 0.42

32/47 = 0.68,

0.31 < 0.39 < 0.42 < 0.68
