– 75
– 72
– 80
– 77
– 66
Option A
? = 514.09 – 19.1% of 3099.98
=> ? = 514 – 19% of 3100
=> ? = 514 – 589
=> ? = – 75

6. Ram spends 15% and 13% of his income on rent and food resp. and 22% and 28% of the remaining income on transportation and entertainment resp. and thereby saves Rs. 9000, what is the amount spend by Ram on transportation?
Rs. 3989
Rs. 3995
Rs. 3333
Rs. 3960
Rs. 3955
Option D
Let income of Ram be 100x.
Amount spend on rent = 0.15*100x = Rs. 15x
Amount spend on food = 0.13*100x = Rs. 13x
Remaining amount = 100x – (15x+13x) = Rs. 72x
Amount spend on transportation and entertainment = 0.22*72x = Rs. 15.84x and 0.28*72x = Rs. 20.16x resp.
Amount saved = 72x – (15.84x + 20.16x) = Rs. 36x
Now, x = 9000/36 = 250
Amount spend by Ram on transportation = 15.84*250 = Rs. 3960

7. A,B and C can complete a work in 18 days, 24 days and 30 days resp. If A,B and C started working together, but B left the work after 4 days, A left the work one day before the completion of the work, then in how many days does the work get completed ?
12
15
14
10
16
Option D
Total work, LCM(18,24,30) = 360 units
Work done by A in one day = 20 units
Work done by B in one day = 15 units
Work done by C in one day = 12 units
Work done by A,B and C in 4 days = (20+15+12)*4 = 188 units
Remaining work = 360 – 188 = 172 units
Let x be the number of days for the completion of the work.
(x-4-1)*20 + (x-4)*12 = 172
=> x = 10

8. 720 litres of mixture contains milk and water in the ratio of 7:2 resp. If x litres of mixture is taken out and is replaced with 50 litres of water then the ratio of milk to water in the resultant mixture becomes 21:8 resp. , find the value of x?
60
45
52
58
49
Option B
Quantity of milk and water in the mixture = 560 and 160 litres respectively.
Quantity of milk and water in the x litres of mixture = (7x/9) and (2x/9)
Now, [560 – (7x/9)]/[160 – (2x/9)+50] = 21/8
=> (5040 – 7x)/(1890 – 2x) = 21/8
=> x = 45

9. A man deposited 40% of his monthly salary in a bank for 5 years. If the simple interest earned by the man from the bank is Rs. 7936 and monthly salary of the man is Rs. 62000, then find the rate of interest offered by the bank.
4.4%
5.9%
5.5%
3.8%
6.4%
Option E
Let the rate of simple interest be x%.
Money deposited in bank = 40% of 62000 = Rs. 24800
=> 7936 = (24800*x*5)/100
=> 1240x = 7936
=> x = 6.4%

10. A and B together started a business with initial investments in the ratio of 4:5 resp. After a year, A and B received Rs. (x-200) and Rs. (x+180) resp. as profit, find the profit received by B?
Rs.1900
Rs.1700
Rs.1600
Rs.1800
Rs.1000
Option A
(x-200)/(x+180) = 4/5
=>5x – 1000 = 4x+720
=> x = 1720
Therefore, Profit received by B = 1720 + 180 = Rs.1900
