b) Rs.18000

d) None of these

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: C**

Initially the loss % = 25%

So, CP = 6750 x 100/75 = 9000

New SP = 9000 x 115/100 = 10350

**2) Answer: B**

Let the total work be LCM of (10 and 16) = 80 units

Number of units of work done by Rahul alone in one day = 80/10 = 8 units

Number of units of work done by Sanjay alone in one day = 80/16 = 5 units

Required time taken = (81.25% of 80)/ (8 + 5) = 65/13 = 5 days

**3) Answer: A**

Let Jagdish’s normal speed be s km/hr and suppose he takes t hrs travelling distance d km.

So, d = st

If speed is increased by 3 km/hr then d = (s + 3) 7/9 t

Equating the two cases,

=> st = 7t(s+3)/9

=> 9st = 7st + 21t

=> 2st = 21t

=> s = 10.5

**4) Answer: A**

Total work = 20 * 6 = 120 units

Now number of men working on subsequent days forms a GP = 8, 16, 32, 64 .. and so on

Also in one day they work 8 units, 16 units, 32 units, 64 units … and so on, respectively, on subsequent days.

Thus 8 + 16 + 32 + 64 = 120 units in 4 days

**Directions (5-7):**

**5) Answer: A**

Required ratio = 3: 6 = 1: 2

**6) Answer: B**

Required percentage = 4/16 × 100 = 25%

**7) Answer: D**

Required number of Pakistani batsmen who are above 30 years = 60% of 10 = 6

**Directions (8-10):**

**8) Answer: C**

Profit earned by HTP in 2015 = Rs.50000

Profit earned by RKS in 2014 = Rs.35000

Required ratio = 50000 : 35000 = 10:7

**9) Answer: B**

Profit earned by HTP in 2012 = Rs.55000

Profit earned by HTP in 2014 = Rs.40000

Required percentage = 55000/40000 x 100 = 137.5%

**10) Answer: A **

Profit earned by RKS in 2012 = Rs.65000

Profit earned by RKS in 2016 = Rs.45000

Required difference = 65000 – 45000 = Rs.20000
