1. A shopkeeper gets a discount of 20% on an article and sells it at 10% profit. What is the profit percent if discount given is 60% ?
107.5%
127.5%
147.5%
143.5%
117.5%
Option C
% profit = (100+10) [(100-10)/(100-60)] – 100 = 590/4 = 147.5%

2. Time taken by a train to cross a platform of length 60 km given that it crosses a pole in two and a half hours running at 60 km/hr
2hrs
2.5hrs
3hrs
1.5hrs
3.5hrs
Option E
length of train = 2.5 * 60 = 150 km
So time taken to cross platform of length 60 km with speed 60 km/hr
= (150+60)/60 = 3.5hrs

3. Age of M five years ago if 6 years hence ratio of age of M to N will be 14: 11, and 1 year ago the ratio was 7: 5.
12
14
15
17
19
Option D
(M+6)/(N+6) = 14/11
And (M-1)/(N-1) = 7/5
Solve the equations, M = 22, so 5 years ago = 22 – 5 = 17 years

4. Time taken by P to complete 1/5th of work if Q takes 6 days to complete 3/5th of work and together they take 5 days to complete 3/4th of work
2
3
4
5
6
Option C
P and Q completes 3/4th work in 5 days, so complete 1 work in 4/3 * 5 = 20/3 days
Q complete 3/5 work in 6 days, so complete work in 5/3 * 6 = 10 days
So in 1 day P completes = 3/20 – 1/10 = 1/20
So to complete 1/5th work = 1/5 * 20 = 4 days

5. Average age of 2 students included in a group of 5 students with average age 18 years given that addition of these 2 students in group makes average increase by 1.
21.5 years
20years
8.5 years
21 years
11.5 years
Option A
Total age of 2 students added to group = 18*2 + 7*1 = 43
So their average age = 43/2 = 21.5 years

6. What is the profit percent earned selling a product for Rs.30000, if the amount of profit earned on selling the product was Rs.10000?
40
50
60
70
80
Option B
S.P = Rs.30000, C.P = 30000 – 10000 = Rs.20000

Profit % = (S.P – C.P)/C.P * 100 = 1/20000 * (30000 – 20000) * 100 = 50%

7. If the selling price of the Sofa was twice the cost price, then what is the profit percent earned while selling that sofa for Rs.2000?
110
100
90
80
70
Option B
C.P = S.P/2 = 2000/2 = Rs.1000

Profit % = (S.P – C.P)/C.P * 100 = 1/1000 * (2000 – 1000) * 100 = 100%

8. Salaries of Ragu and Vaishu are in the ratio 2: 5. If the salary of each is increased by Rs.2000, the new ratio becomes 4: 9. What is Vaishu’s salary?
45000
35000
25000
15000
5000
Option C
(2x + 2000)/ (5x + 2000) = 4/9

=> x = 5000

R’s salary = Rs.10000 and V’s salary = Rs.25000

9. Find Cost price of a product when S.P is Rs.33 and profit is 10%?
