QUESTION: 65

Present age of Ashok is twice the present age of Kishan. After 7 years the Kishan’s age will be 4 times of the Kartik’s present age. If Kartik celebrated his 9th birthday 3 years ago, then what will be the present age (in years) of Ashok?

Solution:

1) Kartik celebrate his 9^{th} birthday 3 years ago,

Present age of Kartik = 9 + 3 = 12 years

2) After 7 years the Kishan age will be 4 times of Kartik age

7 + Kishan present age = 4 (Kartik present age)

Kishan present age = (4 × 12) - 7

48 - 7 = 41 years.

3) The present age of Ashok is twice the present age of Kishan.

Present age of Ashok = 2 × (Present age of Kishan)

= 2 × 41 = 82 years.

Hence 82 is the correct answer.

The only reason why honest people won't work in a system is if the **system is not run with honesty** hence assumption I is implicit. Every person working in the public sector cannot be dishonest as there may be people who work hard to bring change in the system with their honesty. Hence assumption II is not implicit. Only assumption I is implicit.

QUESTION: 68

Solution:

Cost of 50 tables = Rs. 20000

∴ Cost of each table = Rs. (20000/50) = Rs. 400

After 30% increase,

Cost of each table = Rs. (400 + 400 × 30/100) = Rs. 520

After 20% decrease, no. of tables = 50 - 50 × 20/100 = 40

∴ Total cost,

QUESTION: 73

How much will be the compound interest to be paid on a principal amount of Rs. 53,000 after 2 years at the rate of 4% p.a.?

Solution:

Amount received when interest is compounded = P[1 + {r/(n × 100)}]^{n×t}

Where, P is the principal amount

r Is the rate of interest per annum

n is the number of compoundings in a year

t is the time period in years

Here, P = 53000, r = 4%, t = 2 years, n = 1

Amount = 53000 [1 + {4/(1 × 100)}]^{1×2}

Amount = 57324.8

Amount is nothing but the summation of principal and interest

⇒ Principal + Interest = 57324.8

⇒ Interest = 57324.8 – 53000

∴ Interest = Rs. 4324.8

14 years ago, Mia’s grandmother was 6 times older than Mia. She would be 3.75 times of Mia’s age 4 years from now. 6 years ago, what was the ratio of Mia’s age to that of her grandmother?

Solution:

Let the present age of Mia be X and grandmother’s age be Y.

Condition(i) 1 Age of Mia and Grandmother 14 years ago

Y - 14 = 6(X – 14)

⇒ Y – 14 = 6X – 84

⇒ 6X – Y = 70 ----(i)

Condition (ii) Age of Mia and Grandmother after 4 years from present age

Y + 4 = 3.75(X + 4)

⇒ 15X – 4Y = -44 ----(ii)

Solving (i) and (ii)

QUESTION: 90

Three numbers A, B and C are in the ratio of 10 : 12 : 23. If sum of these numbers is 540, ratio between the difference of B and A and the difference of C and B is-

Solution:

Let the value of A be 10x, then value of B and C will be 12x and 23x respectively.

Sum of the numbers = 540

⇒ 10x + 12x + 23x = 540

⇒ 45x = 540

⇒ x = 12

∴ A = 10x = 10 × 12 = 120

B = 12x = 12 × 12 = 144

And C = 23x = 23 × 12 = 276

Difference between B and A = 144 – 120 = 24

Difference between C and B = 276 – 144 = 132

∴ Required ratio = 24 ∶ 132 = 2 ∶ 11
