QUESTION: 1

### The respective ratio between the present age of Mohan and David is 5:x. Mohan is 9 years younger than Preethi. Preethi’s age after 9 years will be 33 years. The difference between David’s and Mohan’s age is same as the present age of Preethi. Quantity I: Mohan’s present age Quantity II: The value of x

Solution:

Preethi’s age after 9 years = 33 years
Preethi’s present age = 33 – 9 = 24 years
Mohan’s present age = 24 – 9 = 15 years
David’s present age = 15 + 24 = 39 years
Ratio between Mohan and David = 15 : 39 = 5 : 13 X = 13

QUESTION: 2

### Sri invested some amount(x) at the rate of 12% simple interest and a certain amount(y) at the rate of 10% simple interest. He received yearly interest of Rs.140. But if he had interchanged the amounts invested, he would have received Rs.4 more as interest. Quantity I: The value of x Quantity II: The value of y

Solution:

Amount invested at 12% = Rs. x Amount invested at 10% = Rs. y
140 = x*12*1/100 + y*10*1/100
12x + 10y = 14000 -(i)
144 = x*10*1/100 + y*12*1/100
10x + 12y = 14400 -(ii)
x = 545.45; y = 745.45

QUESTION: 3

### Ajith can do a piece of work in 10 days, Bala in 15 days. They work together for 5 days, the rest of the work is finished by Chand in two more days. They get Rs. 6000 as wages for the whole work. Quantity I: What is the sum of Rs.100 and the daily wage of Bala? Quantity II: What is the daily wage of Chand?

Solution:

Ajith’s 5 days work = 50%
Bala’s 5 days work = 33.33%
Chand’s 2 days work = 16.66%[100- (50+33.33)] Ratio of contribution of work of Ajith, Bala and Chand = 3 : 2 : 1
Ajith’s total share = Rs. 3000
Bala’s total share = Rs. 2000
Chand’s total share = Rs. 1000
Ajith’s one day’s earning = Rs.600
Bala’s one day’s earning = Rs.400
Chand’s one day’s earning = Rs.500

QUESTION: 4

A Bike is available at 40% discount at showroom “A” and the same is available at only 25% discount at showroom “B”. Mr. Arun has just sufficient amount of Rs. 60,000 to purchase it at showroom “A”.

Quantity I: Difference between Marked Price and SP at Show Room “A”
Quantity II: Difference between Marked Price and SP at Show Room “B”

Solution:

Let the marked price be x.
Cost price (CP) = 40 % discount on MP = 0.6y = 60000
⇒ y= Rs.100000 MP
SP at Show Room “A” = Rs. 60000
SP at Show Room “B” = 100000 X 0.75 = 75000
Difference between Marked Price and SP at Show Room “A” = 40000
Difference between Marked Price and SP at Show Room “B” = 25000

QUESTION: 5

y² = 324
y = ±18

QUESTION: 6

A Cistern has an inlet pipe and outlet pipe. The inlet pipe fills the cistern completely in 1 hour 20 minutes when the outlet pipe is plugged. The outlet pipe empties the tank completely in 4 hours when the inlet pipe is plugged.

Quantity I: Inlet pipe Efficiency
Quantity II: 3 times of Outlet pipe Efficiency

Solution:

Inlet pipe Efficiency = 100/(8/6) = 75%
Outlet pipe Efficiency = 100/(4) = 25%
3 times of Outlet pipe Efficiency = 75%

QUESTION: 7

Harish took an educational loan from a nationalized bank for his 2 years course of MBA. He took the loan of Rs.5 lakh such that he would be charged at 7% p.a. at CI during his course and at 9% CI after the completion of the course.

Quantity I: He returned half of the amount which he had to be paid on the completion of his studies
Quantity II: He returned remaining amount after 2 years

Solution:

5,00,000 * (1.07)² = 572450

After two years = 286225 * (1.09)² = 340063

QUESTION: 8

The average salary of the entire staff in an office is Rs 250 per month. The average salary of officers is Rs 520 and that of non-officers is Rs. 200.

Quantity I: Number of Officers = 15
Quantity II: Number of Non-Officers

Solution:

Let the required number of non–officers = x
200x + 520 x 15 = 250 (15 + x)
250x – 200x = 520 * 15 – 250 x 15
50x = 4050
x = 81

QUESTION: 9

The perimeter of a rectangle and a square is 160 cm each. If the difference between their areas is 600 cm.

Quantity I: Area of Square
Quantity II:Area of Rectangle

Solution:

4a = 160 ⇒ a = 40
Area of square = 1600
1600 – lb = 600
lb = 1000 cm²
