7. In a class, the average age of some boys is 16 years, and average age of 16 teachers is 56 years. If the average age of the combined group of all the teachers and boys is 20, then the number of students is
A) 156
B) 144
C) 136
D) 88
E) 168
Option B
Solution –

Use allegation method
number of boys ‘x’           :             number of teacher’16’
.      16                                                      56
.                                      20
.    (56-20)=36                                  (20-16)=4
.     So 36/4 = 9/1
Now, x/16= 9/1, x=144
8. If the CI on a certain sum for 2 yrs at 10% per annum is Rs. 3150, what would be the SI on same rate for same time?
A) 2500
B) 3000
C) 2800

E) None of these
Option B
Solution –

Let principal = Rs x
CI for 2years in % = 21% (using successive method)
21% of x = 3150
x = 15000
S.I = 15000*2*10/100 = Rs.3000
9. A started a business with initial investment of rs.12000, after 3 month B invest rs.15000 in this business. After 8 month from starting A withdrew one-fourth of his investment and B further invest 1/15 part of his investment.

(12000*8 + 9000*4) : (15000*5 + 16000*4)
132 : 139
Difference in profit sharing ration is= 139x – 132x = 7x
Given 7x = 700, So x = 100
B’s profit share = 139x = 13900
