The data given below shows the salary of five employees. The gross salary of a person consists of three parts: basic salary, fixed perks and variable allowance. Employees get 5 types of variable allowance as different percentage of their Basic Salary. The graph below shows the different variable allowance as the percentage to the basic salary of each employee

The fixed Perks of each employee is given in the table below

Employee Fixed Perks in  (Rupees)
Ayush 30,000
Naman 50,000
Ajeet 45,000
Sujeet 30,000
Vineet 20,000
  1. If OA for Vineet is Rs 5,000 and the Gross Salary of Naman is Rs 2,39,000. Find the difference between gross salary of Vineet and basic salary of Naman.
    A) Rs 30,000
    B) Rs 15,000
    C) Rs 45,000
    D) Rs 20,000
    E) Cannot Be determined
    View Answer
    Option B
    Explanation
    : OA of vineet= 10%= 5000; total variable allowance of vineet= 70% hence basic+ variable allowance=170%; hence 170%=170/10*5000=85000; gross sal= 85000+20,000 (fixed part)= Rs 1,05,000
    Gross salary of Naman= Rs 2,39,000
    B.S+Variable = 239000-50000= 189000
    Variable part= 110% hence basic+variable= 210%=189000
    hence basic=100%=100/210*189000=90000;
    Difference=105000-90000=15000
  2. If the variable allowance of Vineet is Rs 15,000 less than his Basic salary and the variable allowance of Sujeet is Rs 40,000 greater than the variable allowance of Vineet, then find the sum of Gross Salary of Vineet and Sujeet.
    A) Rs 3,00,000
    B) Rs 3,10,000
    C) Rs 2,85,000
    D) Rs 2,55,000
    E) Cannot be Determined
    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation
    : For Vineet: Basic- VA= 15000 => (100-70)=30% =15000; VA of Vineet=70% =>70%=70/30*15000= Rs 35000;
    basic+va of vineet=170%=170/30*15000=85000; + fixed perk=20,000=105000
    VA of Sujeet=40000+35000=75000;
    VA of Sujeet=100%; hence Basic+VA=100+100=200%=200/100*75000= Rs 150000; +FP=150000+30000=1,80,000
    Sum=1,80,000+1,05,000= Rs 2,85,000
  3. If the difference between the DA of Ajeet and CA of Ayush is Rs 38,000. While the difference of Gross salary of Ajeet and Ayush is Rs 23,000, then find the sum of their basic salary.
    A) Rs 2,95,000
    B) Rs 2,10,000
    C) Rs 3,10,000
    D) Rs 2,20,000
    E) Rs 3,20,000
    View Answer
    Option D
    Explanation
    : Let basic salary of Ajeet=x and of Ayush=y
    50/100x – 10/100 y= 38000 => 5x-y = 3800000 ——- (i)
    200/100x +45000 – 160/100y – 30000 = 23000 => 5x-4y=200000 —- (ii)
    solve i and ii get; y=120000; x=100000; Sum=220000
  4. If in a month Ayush doesnot gets CCA allowance his Gross salary reduces by Rs 12,000 from previous month. Then find his gross salary excluding CCA.
    A) Rs 2,22,000
    B) Rs 2,34,000
    C) Rs 2,10,000
    D) Rs 2,50,000
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option C
    Explanation
    : CCA for Ayush=10%=12,000
    =>160%=192000 + FP= 222000 ; -12000=210000
  5. Ratio of Basic Salary of Ajeet and Naman is 10:9 and the difference between the gross salary of Ajeet and Naman is Rs 6,000. Find the gross salary of Ayush if CA of Ayush is Rs 3000 greater than the CA of Naman.
    A) Rs 2,00,000
    B) Rs 1,90,000
    C) RS 2,10,000
    D) Rs 2,22,000
    E) Rs 3,10,000
    View Answer
    Option D
    Explanation
    : Let Basic salary of Ajeet=10x ; Basic of Naman=9x
    200/100*10x + 45000 – 210/100*9x -50,000 =6000
    x=10000
    hence CA of Naman= 10/100*90000=9000
    Ca of Ayush=12000 =10%
    Hence 160%=192000; +FP =222000

    Gross salary of Naman= Rs 2,39,000
    How does we found naman??

    1. Suraj

      Gross Salary=basic salary + fixed perks + variable allowance
      variable allowance is given as a percentage of Basic salary; for naman variable allowance =110%
      Let his Basic salary =100x then variable allowance =110x and hence basic+ varaible allowance =210x
      Gross slaray of Naman : 2,39,000= 210x + 50,000 ; solve and get x=900
      hence basic of naman=100x= Rs 90000

  6. AVI™ (Sinchen loveR)

    sir can u define Q4
    can’t understand give solution

    1. Suraj

      See, Ayush doesnot gets CCA for one month; So the only thing that is reducing is CCA; which is 10% for ayush and the amount equivalent reducing is Rs 12,000 , means this 10%= rs 12,000
      means 100% will be Rs 120000 = basic salary
      and total variable allowance= 60%= 12000*6=72000
      Fixed perks for ayush= 30,000(given)
      hence gross sal= basic+ fixed perks + variable allowance= 120000 + 72000+30000= 222000
      this is under normal circumstance when he gets CCA, when he doesnot gets CCA gross salary is reduced by RS 12000 so subtract 12000 from 222000 that the answer

      1. AVI™ (Sinchen loveR)

        got it sir thnxx
        and sir in Q3 we can solve this question by value system ?
        38000 value 40
        38000/40*20=190000
        then we divide in ratio ajeet and ayush VA % can we do like this ?

        1. Suraj

          solve and see if the answer is coming

          1. AVI™ (Sinchen loveR)

            i got 237500 sir

          2. Suraj

            see why cant we adopt this method: when we take 50-10 =40% this step itself is wrong, as the two percentage are of different quanitity, ie the basic salary of both are different… if for the same person the data was given then this method was correct

          3. AVI™ (Sinchen loveR)

            don’t know sir but i do this di all question with value system and i got correct ans
            may be something i forgot or wrong type
            one more time i solve perhaps i got right ans
            and Thnxx sir
