10) In a marathon, Jyoti ran for 29 seconds while for the rest of the distance, she preferred to brisk walk at a speed of 2 m/s for 35 seconds. If the total distance to be covered was 215 m, find the speed at which she ran.
a) 3 m/s
b) 4 m/s
c) 5 m/s
d) 7 m/s
1) Answer: B
M’s 1 day work = 1/8
N’s 1 day work = 1/12
So, O’s 1 day work = 1/4 – (1/8 + 1/12) = 1/24
Ratio of their shares = 1/8: 1/12: 1/24 or 3: 2: 1
Hence, N’s share = 2/6 x 1800 = 600
2) Answer: A
The total discount on giving two successive discounts equals Rs. 1260 = (5000 – 3740) which is 25.2% of the marked price.
Let the first discount be Y% and if the second discount is 15%, we can write:
Y + 15 – [(Y × 15) /100] = 25.2
On solving this equation, we get Y = 12%
3) Answer: D
Sum of age of 41 students and the teacher = 24 x 42 = 1008
Let the age of the teacher be N years.
Total age of students = 1008 – N
Average age of students = (1008 – N)/41 = 23
=> 1008 – N = 943
=> N = 65
4) Answer: C
Let the cost of one apple, one mango and one guava be Rs. A, Rs. M and Rs. G respectively
According to the given question, the following equations can be formed-
8A + 5M = 194 — (1)
5G + 6M = 183 — (2)
7A + 9G = 226 — (3)
On solving the three equations, we get: A = 13, M = 18 and G = 15
Thus, the cost of three mangoes, two guavas and one apple (3M + 2G + 1A) = Rs. 97
5) Answer: C
∵ A1 = Rs578.40, n1 = 2 years, A2 = 614.55, n2 = 3 years
A = P(1 + r/100)n
578.40 = P(1+r/100)2
614.55 = P(1+r/100)3
Dividing, (1+r/100) = 614.55/578.40
r/100 = 614.55/578.40 – 1 = 36.55/578.40
r = 100 x 36.55/578.40 = 6¼ %
6) Answer: C
Paras can do 1/18th of a task in three days, which implies it takes 54 days for him to complete the task (or 1/54th of the task done by him in 1 day).
Similarly, it takes 27 days for Mansavi to complete the task (or 1/27th of the task done by her in 1 day).
If they both start doing the task together, 1/54 + 1/27 = 1/18th of the task shall be done in 1 day or the task shall get completed in 18 days, implying that half of the work shall be done in 9 days.
Since Paras can complete the task alone in 54 days, half of the task shall be completed by him alone in 27 days.
Thus, 36 days (9 + 27) will be taken to complete the task.
7) Answer: D
Price of the house = Rs3,25,000
Money received by Ranjit from Manikaran= 106% of Rs 3,25,000=3,44,500.
Therefore, price at which Manikaran sells the house back to Ranjit = 96% of Rs 3,44,500
= Rs 3,30,720
Thus, Ranjit gains Rs (3,44,500 -3,30,720) = Rs 13,780
8) Answer: C
If the average score of 28 students of the class is 55%, then the total marks of 28 students will be 28 × 55 = 1540 (assuming the percentage score to be marks out of 100).
Similarly, the total marks of 40 students will be 40 × 62.5 = 2500. Then, the total marks of the 12 students whose marks were added later = 2500 – 1540 = 960.
Consequently, average score of the students whose marks were added later = 960/ 12 = 80%
9) Answer: D
Let actual CP per kg be 100
Since he buys 1100g and sells only 900g, projected CP = 100 x 11/9 = 1100/9
MP = 1.2CP and discount = 20%
Hence SP = 1100/9 x 1.2 x 0.8 = Rs 117.33
Therefore, gain % = 17.33%
10) Answer: C
Distance covered by walking = (speed × time) = 2 × 35 = 70 m
Distance covered by running = 215 – 70 = 145 m
Now, 145 = Running speed × 29
Thus, running speed = 145/ 29 = 5 m/s
