d) 19(3/4)

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: C**

P : Q = 8x : x

Difference = 7x

Percentage = (7x/8x) X 100

= 87.5%

**2) Answer: B**

First number = 35

Last number = 149

Total number in between them = 114

Total number divisible by 11 = 114/11 = 10

**3) Answer: A**

1(1/4) + 5(1/2) + 1(1/3) + 10(1/3) + 7(2/3) – 5(1/2)

The above expression can be written as:-

= (1 + 5 + 1 – 5 + 10 + 7) + (1/4 + 1/2 + 1/3 +1/3 – 1/2 + 2/3)

= 19 + (1 + 7/12)

= 20 (7/12)

**4) Answer: A**

Prime number: Number which is divisible by 1 and itself. Prime numbers start from 2, 3 and so on.

101: This number is only divisible by 1 and itself.

**5) Answer: C**

Principle Amount

1 : 8

Taking cube root because T = 3 years.

1 : 2

Compound Interest = A – P

Compound Interest = 1

Rate = (1/1)X 100

= 100%

**6) Answer: C**

Let the speed of boat in still water and speed of stream be ‘u’ kmph and ‘v’ kmph.

u + v = 36

u – v = 30

Solving the above equations we get,

Speed of boat in still water = u = 33 kmph

**7) Answer: A**

First number = 10

Last number = 99

Total number in between them = 89

Total number divisible by 8 = 89/8 = 11

**8) Answer: D**

Let the total work = 105 units (LCM of 21 and 35)

Working efficiency = 10 : 6

One day work by them together = 16 units.

Time taken together = 105/16 days

**9) Answer: A**

(a + b)^{2} = 100

(a – b)^{2} = 4

Taking square root of both equations,

(a + b) = 10

(a – b) = 2

On solving

a = 6, b = 4

**10) Answer: D**

4(1/3) + 2(1/4) + 5(2/3) – 1(1/6) + 8(2/3)

The above expression can be written as :-

= (4 + 2 + 5 – 1 + 8) + (1/3 + 1/4 + 2/3 – 1/6 + 2/3)

=18 + (1 + 0.75)

= 19(3/4)
