5.C
Let the mother's present age be X years
Then,the person's present age = 2/5*x years
therefore, 2/5*X+8 = 1/2*(X+8)
X = 40

6.B
7.B
let, Father's current age is A years
then, Man's current agr = (2/5)A years
therefore (2/5)A+8 = (1/2)(A+8)
A= 40

1.B
Volume of the wall = (2400 x 800 x 60)   cm^3
Volume of bricks   = 90% of the volume of the wall= [(90/100) x 2400 x 800 x 60] cm^3
Volume of 1 brick = (24 x 12 x 8)   cm^3
Number of bricks=(90/100) x (2400 x 800 x 60) / (24 x 12 x 8)=45000

2.C
no. of bricks= volume of the wall/volume of 1 brick = (800 x 600 x 22.5) / (25 x 11.25 x 6) = 6400

3.B
4.C
Volume of block=(6x9x12) cm^3 = 648 cm^3
