A) 750
B) 600
C) 450
D) 300
E) None
Option B
Solution:

Final ratio 5:4
9 900
5 ==> 500
4 ==> 400
Then
8x+3y=500 —-1
7x+2y=400—-2
Solving equation 1 and 2 we get x=40, y=60
Initially (8+7) 15*40=600.
2. P and Q started business with Rs600 and Rs500 respectively. After 4 months, R replaces Q with X% of Q’s capital. After 1 year R’s share out of the total profit Rs24000 is Rs5600. Find the value of X.
A) 65%
B) 50%
C) 75%
D) 70%
E) None
Option D
Solution:

P:Q:R=600*12: 500*4: (500*x/100 )*8
=600*12: 500*4: 5x*8
180:50:x
Then (180+50+x)=230+x                           24000
.             x                                                             5600
==>1610+7x=30x
23x=1610
X=70%.

A) 2654cm3
B) 2865cm3
C) 3744cm3
D) 2755cm3
E) None
Option C
Solution:

After 6cm side cut off the new
length=60-(2*6)=48cm.
Then volume of the open box= l*b*h=48*13*6 =3744cm3.
5. Sum of present ages of A and B is 41. A’s age 2 year hence is equal to C’s age, 1 year ago. A’s age, 4 year hence is equal to B’s age 1year ago and ratio of present age of A and D is 3 : 4. Find the difference of age of C and D.
A) 3years
B) 5years
C) 6years
D) 2years
E) None
Option A
Solution:

A + B = 41 —1
C -1 = A + 2==> C = A + 3
A + 4 = B – 1 ==> B = A + 5 —2
From 1 and 2
A = 18 years, B = 18 + 5 = 23 years, C = 18 + 3 = 21 years,
A/D=3/4
D=4/3*18=24years.
Difference = 24 – 21 = 3 years.
6. A, B and C can do a piece of work in 30, 40 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can B do the work if he is assisted by A and C on every third day?
A) 18days

3rd day A,B and C completed =4+3+2=9units
On third day =9+6=15 units completed.
For 3 days 15unit work completed
Then for 24(3*8) days 120(15*8) unit work completed.

4x = 124==>x=31
smallest angle=31degree.

A) 6/231
B) 1/155
C) 1/221
