(a) 2001 and 2003 
(b) 2003
(c) 2001 and 2005 
(d) 2003 and 2005

9.What is the ratio of total students and total passed students in 2003?
(a) 40 : 21 
(b) 41 : 21

(d) 44 : 21

10.In which year minimum percentage of students failed?
(a) 2001 
(b) 2002
(c) 2003 
(d) 2004

1.(a) 180 area under Bajra = 300 acre
=> 720 + 360 area under Rice & Barley = 300/18×(720+360)
= 300/18×108
= 18 hundred Acres.

2.(a) : It is clear from the pie chart that wheat,
rice and maize contribute to more than 50% of the total area.

3.(c) : Ratio of the land used for rice & barley
= 720 : 360
= 720/360 : 360/3600
= 2 : 1

4.(b) : 10% of land reserved for rice =
10% of 720  = 10/100× 720 = 7.20
7.20 is distributed among wheat & barley in ratio = 2 : 1
2n + n = 7.20
3n = 7.20
n =2.40
distribution of land among wheat & barley will be 4.80 and 2.40 resp.
∴ The corresponding angle to wheat in new pie chart will be 72 + 4.80. = 76.80

5.(a) : Let the total production of Bajra be T tones and let Z acres of land
be put under Bajra production.
Then, the total production of Bajra =(T) tones.
Production of Jowar = 2T
And Production of Rice = 10T
Then, Area under Rice production = 4Z (Area Under Rice Production /Area Under Bajra Production
=> 72/18 = 4)
And therefore,Area under Rice = 4*Area under Bajra = (4Z)acres
Now, yield per acre for Rice = (10T/4Z) tones/acre = (5T/2Z) tones/acre
And yield per acre for Bajra = (T/Z) tones/acre
Require ratio = 5T/2Z/T/Z = 5 : 2
6.(a) 
7.(d); 
Average = (115+100+110+121+84)= 530/5= 106
8.(c)
9.(b); 
Ratio = (820/420)  = 41 : 21
10.(c); 
48.78% failed.

(a) 2 m, 3 m, 4 m  
(b) 3 m, 4.5 m, 6 m  
(c) 4 m, 6 m, 8 m  
(d) 5 m, 7.5 m, 10 m 

ANSWERS AND SOLUTION
1.(c); Side of tiles = HCF of 999 cm and 407 cm
= 37
so Required no. of tiles = (999 * 407)/ (37 * 37) = 297

2.(b); Let the fare from p to Q = Rs. X
And the fare form P to R = Rs. Y
According to question,
5x + 10y = 350 …….(i)
x + y = 42 ……………..(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get
x = Rs. 14/-  y = Rs.  28/-

3.(c) lest cost price =x
marked price = x * 140/100 = 14x/10
Selling price = 14x/10 * 90/100
= 126x/100
profit= sp-cp = 126x/100 - x= 26x/100
Net profit = 26x/100 * 90/100
so 468 = (26*90)/(100*100)x
x = 2000

4.(b) Let smaller number = x
so Larger number = 80 – x
Accroding to question,
80 – x = 4x + 5
5x = 75
=> X = 15

5.(c); Let salary of x = Rs.x
Salary of y = x*100/120
= Rs. 10x/12
Salary of X – salary of Y = x – 10x/12 = 2x/12 = x/6
so Required salary = x/6/x * 100 = 50/3%

6.(d)
By law of mixture
1/4          3/8


     x

3                2

so (3/8 -x)/(x-1/4) = 3/2
3/4-2x=3x-3/4
5x=6/4 = 3/2 =>x = 3/10

7.(c) Let A’s age = 2x
so B’s age = 5x
According to question,
(2x + 8)/(5x + 8) = 1/2
4x + 16 = 5x + 8
X = 8
so Required differecne = (5x – 2x)
= 3x
= 3 * 8 = 24 years

8.(b) A = P (1 + r/100)^n
A = 7500 (1 + 16/100)^2
= 7500 * 29/25 * 29/25
= Rs. 10,092

9.(b) A’s one day work = 1/24
so B’s one day work = 1/24 * 160/100 = 1/15
so B’s can do a piece of work in 15 days.

10.(b) ; Let the  dimensions by 2x, 3x and 4x
According to question
2(2x * 3x + 3x * 4x + 4x * 2x)(10 – 8) = 234
=> 4 * 26x^2 = 234
=> X^2 = 234/104 = 2.35
X = 1.5
Dimensions are 3m, 4.5 m and 6 m.

(b) 1% more
(c) 1% less                                           
(d) 5% less

Solutions
1. (b); Required single discount = (1 – 0.7 × 0.8 × 0.9) × 100%
= 49.60%

2. (c); Let x = original number of workers
According to question
22x = 24 (x – 3)
or, 22x = 24x – 72
⇒ x = 36

3. (b); The number of days taken by A, B and C to complete the work while working together
= ((L.C.M. of 18, 24 & 36) × 2/(L.C.M./18 +  L.C.M./24 + L.C.M./36) ) days
= (72 × 2/(72/18 + 72/24 + 72/36) ) days
= 16 days

4. (b); In the given figure, width of the street = (x + y)
=√(202 –162) +√(202 – 122 )
= 28 m

5. (b); cost price of each marble @ 20 per rupees = Rs. 1/20
Cost price of each marble @ 30 per rupee = Rs. 1/30
⇒ Average cost price of each marble = Rs. (1/20 + 1/30)/2
[∴ no. of marbles are equal]
= Rs. 1/24
According to the question
Selling price of each marble @ 25 per rupee = Rs. 1/25
[∵ 1/25 < 1/24 ∵ S.P. < C.P. ⇒ loss ]
So, % loss = ((S.P. – C.P.) ×100)/ C.P.
= ((1/25 – 1/24) × 100%)/(1/24)
= – 4%
⇒ 4% loss

6. (b); Loss of 20% on one and gain of 20% on other.
⇒ there will be a loss (always)
and loss% = (20)2/100% = 4%loss (on total C.P.)

⇒ C.P. (100%)    –4%_  S.P. (96%)

= 12,000 × 2 = 24000
So, loss in transaction (i.e. 4%)
= 24000 × 4/96 = 1000
⇒ loss of Rs. 1000

7. (d); 116 – 92 = 24         Let x = profit when S.P. = 92
i.e. 3x – x = 24 So, 3x = profit when S.P. = 116
⇒ x = 12
⇒ When S.P. = 92, Profit = Rs. 12
So, C.P. = 92 – 12 = Rs. 80

8. (c); C.P. of each article = Rs. 5110/73 = Rs. 70
S.P. of each article = Rs. 5607/89 = Rs. 63
Here, S.P. < C.P. ⇒ loss
and % loss = (S.P. – C.P.) × 100% /C.P.
= (63 – 70) × 100%/70
= – 10%
= 10% loss

9. (d); C.P. (100%)    –5%    S.P. (95%) = Rs. 665
S.P. at 5% loss i.e. 95% of C.P. = Rs. 665
So, SP at 12% profit i.e. 112% of C.P.
= Rs. 665 × 112/95= Rs. 784


10. (c); Less by ((10)2/100)% = i.e. less by 1%
