1.(2); Average speed of the car =   = 75 km/h
Average speed of the tractor = 75 ×2/5   = 30 km/h
Distance covered by the tractor = 30 × 8 = 240 km

2.(4); Length of the rectangle = 25 cm
Breadth of the rectangle =  25/5 –1 = 4 cm
Area of the rectangle = 25 × 4 = 100 sq cm
Area of the square = 4 × 100 = 400 sq cm
Side of the square = 20 cm
Perimeter of the square = 4 × 20 = 80 cm

3.(1); (12)^3 – (22)^2 = 1728 – 484 = 1244
4.(3);
5.(4); Varun’s present age = 39 – 5 = 35 years
So, Tarun’s present age = 15 years
Tarun’s age 4 years ago = 11 years

6.(4); Let the numbers be x, x + 2, x + 4, x+6 and x + 8
According to the question,
x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 + x + 8=170
or 5x + 20 = 170
or x + 4 = 34
or x = 30.
Second largest No. = 30 + 6 = 36
Square of smallest No. = 900
Sum of these Nos. = 900 + 36 = 936
7.(4);
8.(3);
9.(1);I = 25000 ×3/20  = 3750,  r =  (3750*100)/75000 = 5%
10.(3); Second selling price  = 6500 * 124/100 *80/100  = 6448
Loss => 6500 – 6448 = Rs. 52

(1). 90
(2). 85
(3). 80
(4). 75

6.If A : B = 3 : 4 and B : C = 8 : 9, then the ratio A : B : c is.
(1). 3:4:5
(2). 1:2:3
(3). 7:12:17
(4). 6:8:9

7. If a : b = b : c, then the ratio a^4 : b^4 is equal to
(1). ac:b^2
(2). a^2:c^2
(3). c^2:a^2
(4). b^2:ac

(1). 190
(2). 191
(3). 192

10. A bag contains Rs. 145 in the form of one-rupee,50-paise and 25 paise coins in the ratio 3:5:7.The number of one-rupee coins is.
(1). 60
(2). 50
(c). 48
(d). 45

1.(1)
2.(1)
3.(3) Part of the tank filled in first 2 hours.
1/4 + 1/6 = (3+2)/12 = 5/12 parts
so Part of the tank filled in first 4 hours
= (2*5)/12 parts = 5/6 parts
Remaining part = 1 - 5/6 = 1/6
Now it is the turn of pipe A
Time taken to fill 1/4 part = 1 hour
So Time taken to fill 1/6 part
= 1/6*4 = 2/3 hour
So Total time = 4 + 2/3 = 4 2/3 hours
4.(2)
If the length and breadth of a rectangular are changed by x% and y% respectively .
the effective change in area = (x + y + xy/100)%
Here, x = -25. y = -25
so Percentage decrease (-25-25+25*25/100)%
= (-50+6.25)% = -43.75%

5. (1)
6. (4)
7. (2)
a/b = b/c => b^2 = ac
so a^4 : b^4 = a^4 : a^2c^2 = a^2:c^2
8. (2)
9. (4)
5x*6x = 120*HCF
30x^2 = 120*x
x = 4
10. (1)
Ratio of the values of coins = 3/1 : 5/2 : 7/4= 12:10:7
so value of the one rupee coins
= Rs. (12/29*145)= Rs.60 Number of One rupee coins
