SSC CGL Tier 1 Practice Test - 24 - Question 72

The sum total of the salary of Atul, Binod, and Charu Rs. 200. If they spend 60%, 80% and 75% of their respective salaries, then their savings are in the ratio of 8:8:5. Find the salary of Atul

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Practice Test - 24 - Question 72

Assume that the s alary of Atul = Rs. A, salary of Binod = Rs. B, and salary of Charu = Rs. C
Given that A + B + C = Rs. 200
(i) After deducting their respective expenses from their respective salaries, we get savings of them as follows:
Savings of Atul = 40% of A = 0.4A
Savings of Binod = 20% of B = 0.2B
Savings of Charu = 25% of C = 0.25C
Given that 0.4A:0.2B:0.25C = 8:8:5
Or, we get A:B = 1:2 and B:C = 2:1
Hence, A:B:C = 2:4:2 = 1:2:1 (ii)Solving (i) and (ii), we get A = Rs. 50, B = Rs. 100, and C = Rs. 50

PASSAGE-I

Beds are the best evidence of the importance that man attaches to sleep. What deep sleeper can have gazed without envy at the monumental, spacious, four- poster beds of the past? It is easy to imagine one climbing into a bed like this, drawing the curtains and enjoying hours and hours of uninterrupted sleep. It is only in our days that beds have been debased. The first victim in our effort to save space has been, of course, the bed. Everything is done to make it less conspicuous. It folds up and disappears into the wall or performs astonishing acrobatic tricks and turns itself into a couch or an armchair. Even the bedroom as such has disappeared and has been replaced by a thing called a ‘sitting bedroom’ in which you can neither comfortably sleep nor sit. What with further refinement like rubber mattresses and electric blankets it is no wonder that many of us suffer from insomnia and seek salvation from alarm clocks to wake up each morning. Psychologists, meanwhile are busy studying our sleep habits and tell us that we cannot truly rest unless we dream. But most of us dream during the few minutes of blissful sleep that follow each rude awakening. Only our ancestors knew the true value of sleep. We have simply to remember that Shakespeare not only gave the subject a lot of attention but rated beds so highly as to make out a will leaving his wife his ‘second best bed’.

Q. 'It is only in our days that the bed has been debased'.
