35
40
45
Option B
Quantity of milk = 375 * 16/25 = 240
quantity of water = 375 * 9/25 = 135
ATQ,
240/135 + x = 3/2
3x + 405 = 480
x = 25

2. A and B alone can complete a piece of work in 24 days and 20 days respectively. If efficiency of C is 60% more than A, then find in how many days C complete the work ?
15 days
17 days
20 days
25 days
30 days
Option A
LCM of 24 and 20 = 120
efficiency of A = 120/24 = 5
efficiency of B = 120/20 = 6
efficiency of C = 5 * 160/100 = 8
time required = 120/8 = 15 days

3. A shopkeeper marked up an article 25% above its cost price and allowed a discount of 40% on it. If shopkeeper made a loss of rs.128, then find what is the cost price ?
620

480
Option D
Let CP of article = 100x
MP of article = 100x * 125/100 = 125x
SP of article = 125x * 60/100 = 75x
loss = 100x – 75x = 25x
CP of article = 128/25x * 100x = 512

rate of CI after 1 year = 10 + 10 + 10 * 10/100 = 21%
CI = 25000 * 21/100 = 5250
amount = 25000 + 5250 = 30250
