555
600
650
660
666
Option D
Let the distance between the two consecutive poles be x m.
320+x = 49*20
=> 320+x = 980
=> x = 660 m

7. A man sold 2 books at the same price, one at a profit of 20% and other at a loss of 10%. If the total selling price of both books is Rs. 1800,then find the total cost price of both the books.
1550
1700
1570
1750
1520
Option D
SP of each book = 1800/2 = 900
Total CP of both books = 900/1.2 + 900/0.9
= 750+1000 = Rs.1750

10
20
16
14
18
Option C
Sum of all the interior angles of a regular polygon
= (n-2)/2*360
=> 2520 =(n-2)/2*360
=> n = 16

9. Govind lent Rs.12000 to Vivek for 3 years and Rs. 4000 to Ramu for 4 years at the same rate and received Rs. 4160 as simple interest altogether from both. Find the rate of interest.

5%
Option D
Let the rate of interest be r% p.a.
(12000*3*r)/100+(4000*4*r)/100 = 4160
=> 360r + 160r = 4160
=> 520r = 4160
=> r = 8%

x*50 + 12*30 = (x+12)*40
=> 50x + 360 = 40x + 480
=> x = 12
