III.The CI accured in 8 years is more than the amount.

Solution:

From I :
Principal = P, Amount = 2P
Interest = 2P – P = P
SI =P = P*R*10/100 => R = 10%
From IIpr²/100² = diff                                                                                         20000*r/10000 = 200

QUESTION: 11

Q(11 – 15) Each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read all the three statements and give answer: –

What is the speed of the train whose length is 210m?
I. The train crosses another train of 300m length running in opposite direction in 10s
II. The train crosses another train running in the same direction at the speed of 60kmph in 30s.

Solution:

L1 = 210m(Given)
From Statement I, L2 = 300m
L1 + L2 = 210m +300m =510m
S1 + S2 = [D/T] = 510/10 = 51m/s
From Statement II,
S2 = 60kmph = 60*(5/18) = 50/3 m/s
S1 – S2 = 510/30 = 51/3 => S1-50/3 = 51/3
S1 = 101/3 m/s
Thus both the statements are required to answer the question.

Solution:

From Statement I,
Number of male officers = x
Number of female officers = x/2 – 250
Ratio can’t be calculated from Statement I.
From Statement II,
Number of male officers = x
Number of female officers = x* 1/7
Ratio = x/(x/7) = 7:1
Thus Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

I. A’s contribution is 3/2 times of B’s
II. B’s contribution is twice that of C.
III. A’s contribution is thrice that of C.

Solution:

C = x
From I and II
C = x, B = 2x, A = (3/2 * 2x) => A = 3x
From II and III
C = x, B = 2x, A = 3x
From I and III
C = x, A = 3x, B = (2/3 * 3x) => B = 2x
A:B:C = 3:2:1, A’s share = (3000 * (3/6)) = 1500
Thus any two of the three statements, are sufficient to answer the question.

Thus All I, II and III together are required.

QUESTION: 20

What will be the share of R in the profit earned by V, R and A together?
I. They together invested an amount of Rs.54000 for a period of 1 year
II. R’s investment was 25% less than V’s and 50% more than A’s.
III. The profit of V is 4000 more than that of A.

Solution:

Let A’s investment = x
From statement II
R’s investment = 150% of x = 1.5x
V’s investment = z = R’s investment was 25% less than V’s = 75% of z = 1.5x => 2x
A, V, R profit ratio = x : 2x :1.5x = 2:4:3
Let profit ratio of A, V, R be 2y, 4y and 3y
From statement III
4y-2y = 4000
y =2000
R’ share = Rs.6000
Statement II and III together are sufficient to answer the question.
