6. The cost price of an article A is 30% more than the selling price of article B and selling price of article A is 80% more than the cost price of article B. If selling price of article A is 50% more than the selling price of article B then the cost price of article A is what percentage more/less than cost price of article B?
63%
60%
52%
40%
56%
Option E
Let the CP of article B be Rs.x
SP of article A be Rs. 9x/5
Let SP of article B be Rs.y
CP of article A be Rs. 13y/10
Therefore, 9x/5 = 150% of y
=> y = 6x/5
CP of article A = 39x/25
Ratio of CP of article B to article A = x : 39x/25 = 25:39
Required% = 14/25*100 = 56%

7. Raju deposited an amount of Rs. 12500 at 10% per annum compound interest while amount of Rs. 16900 at 7% per annum simple interest at the same time for 2 years. What will be the difference in the total interest earned in the first year and the total interest earned in the second year ?
Rs. 130
Rs. 120
Rs. 115
Rs. 125
Rs. 100
Option D
Total interest earned in the first year
= (12500*100*1)/100 + (16900*7*1)/100
= Rs. 2433
Total interest earned in the second year = [12500*{(1.1)^2 – 1} + (16900*7*2)/100] – 2433
= (2625 + 2366 ) – 2433 = Rs. 2558
Required Difference = 2558 – 2433 = Rs. 125

8. A vessel contains mixture of Kerosene and Petrol and petrol mixed in the ratio of 7:5 resp. 84 liters of the mixture is taken out of the vessel and replaced with 32 litres of petrol so that the ratio of the Petrol to Kerosene in the vessel becomes 11:9 resp. Find the initial quantity of Petrol in the vessel.
77 litres
70 litres
85 litres
74 litres
80 litres
Option E
Let the initial quantities of Kerosene and Petrol be 7x and 5x resp.
Now, (7x-49)/(5x-35+32) = 9/11
=> x= 16
So, the initial quantity of Petrol in the vessel = 16*5 = 80 litres

9. Mr. Sharma distributed a certain amount of money among his wife, daughter and son. Amount received by the son and the daughter are in the ratio is 6:7 resp. And the amount received by the son and the wife are in the ratio 3:4 resp. Find the amount received by wife if the daughter received Rs. 28000.
Rs. 32000
Rs. 22000
Rs. 25000
Rs. 30000
Rs. 28000
Option A
Amount received by Son and wife resp. = 28000*6/7
= Rs. 24000 and 24000*4/3 = Rs. 32000

Rs. 15000
Rs. 25000
Rs. 22000
Rs. 28000
Rs. 20000
Option D
Let the monthly savings of Puja and Nisha are Rs. 7x and 8x resp.
Monthly expenditure of Puja = 2*7x = Rs. 14x
Monthly expenditure of Nisha = Rs. 14x + 6000
Now, (7x+14x)/(8x+14x+6000) = ¾
=>x = 1000
Monthly salary of Nisha = 22*1000 + 6000
= Rs. 28000
