      Option A
      Solution –

      (50000*12) : (65000*8)
      15 : 13
      Now, (62100 – 350*6) = 60000
      B’s profit = 60000*13/15 = 52000
      Let after cutting 350*6 from A’s profit, remaining amount is x. So
      15/28 * x + 350*6 = 62100
      So total x = 112000
      So B’s profit = 13/28 * 112000 = 52000

      Let, length of first train = x
      (x + 250)/10 = (x + 150 + 250)/15
      Solving, we get x=50
      Speed = 300/10 or 450/15 = 30m/s
      Convert this speed into km/h, 30*18/5 = 108km/h
    5. Of the two trains A and B, which train is moving faster? (The length of the both trains is same.)

      View Answer
      Option A
      Solution –

      Let, speed of train in km/h= x
      (x-6) * 5/18 = 75 * 2/15,
      Solving, we get = 42 km/h
      Now, assume speed of second person is y km/hr,

      Solving, we get y = 2km/h
    7. Thirteen litres are drawn from a cask full of water and then it is filled with milk. Now thirteen litres of mixture are drawn and the cask is again filled with milk. The ratio of quantity of water now left in the cask to that of the milk in it is 16 : 9. How much does the cask hold?

      B) 65 litres
      C) 78 litres
      D) 39 litrers
      E) none of these
      View Answer
      Option B
      Solution –

      Water = 16
      Total mixture = 16+9 = 25
      √(16/25) = 4/5
      Difference in ratio= 1
      And this 1 is equal to 13. So total mixture is 13*5= 65
      Let x litres is total capacity of cask
      Using formula, amount of water left in cask = x [1 – 13/x]2
      [1 – 13/x]2/x = 16/(16+9)
      Solving we get, x = 65 l

  1. ^^^Jaga^^^....

    mam..8 no wala question hmesha dobut rehta hai…how to solve? 🙁

    1. See one more method: (this is long than the one explained above)

      Expenditure = price × consumption.
      Price decreased by 40%. So to keep expenditure same, consump. should increase. Right ?
      40% red in price means 40/(100-40) * 100 = 200/3 % increase in consump.

      Now consump × 200/3% = 36 kg
      So consump × 100% = 54 kg
      Now 54 kg – 45 rs
      So 1 kg – 45/54 rs
      Or 4500/54 paise which is the original price.
      So reduced price is 60% of 4500/54 = 50 paise

      Learn this shotcut:
      Original price = 45*(100-60)/(60*36)
      Then reduced price = 60% of original.
