d) Other than above

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: D) **

Let the initial quantity of milk and water be 4x litres and 3x litres, respectively.

4x/(3x + 4) = 6/5

20x = 18x + 24

2x = 24, x = 12

Required initial quantity of mixture in the container = 7x = 84 litres

**2) Answer: A) **

Let a, b and c are first, second and third numbers respectively.

a + b = 2 x 20 = 40

b + c = 2 x 36 = 72

c – a = 72 – 40 = 32

**3) Answer: A) **

Let the monthly income of Ram and Raju be Rs. 4x and Rs. 5x, respectively.

(4x – 2500)/(5x – 2500) = 7/9

36x – 22500 = 35x – 17500

x = 5000

So, the monthly income of Raju = 5x = Rs. 25000

**4) Answer: D) **

Let the actual fraction = p/q

Let numerator is increased by a%. Then,

((100 + a)% of p)/(70% of q) = 25p/14q

a = 25

**5) Answer: A) **

Distance covered while going = 12 × 45/60 = 9 km

Speed of man while coming back = 12 × 1.25 = 15 km/h

Time taken to cover 9 km, while coming back = 9/15 = 36 minutes

Required average speed = (9 + 9)/ {(45 + 36)/60} = 13.33 km/h

**6) Answer: A) **

From the given data, B-5=A+5

=> B=A+10. Again B+6=2(A-6)

=> A+10+6=2A-12

=> 2A-A=16+12 => A=28.

**7) Answer: B) **

Let B’s investment be Rs. ‘x’.

Then, A’s investment = Rs. 1.2x

Ratio of profit share of A: B = 1.2x: x = 6: 5

So, profit share of B = 5/11 × 4950 = Rs. 2250

**8) Answer: D) **

The formula used to find the difference between simple interest and compound interest when the time period is 2 years is given as:

Difference = P(r/100)^{2}

Where r= rate of interest

Difference = 2400(25/100)^{2} = 2400 X 25/100 X 25/100=Rs.150

**9) Answer: C) **

Let, present age of Pawan and Gaurav be 5x years and 9x years, respectively.

So, (5x + 12)/(9x + 12) = 2/3

15x + 36 = 18x + 24

3x = 12, x = 4

So, required difference = 4x = 16 years

**10) Answer: C) **

Let Nagesh invested N

Ratio of investment of Amit, Nagesh and Abhay

= (80000 x 12): (I x 9): (40000 x 6) =16: 9:4

((80000 x 12)/(9I)) = 16/9

I = Rs.60000
