Option D
175% of 460 + 110% of 170 + 2^? = 100
=>2^? = 1000 − 805 − 187 = 8
=> ? = 3

2. 3.2% of 500 × 2.4% of ? = 288
700
750
800
745
820
Option B
3.2% of 500 × 2.4% of ? = 288
=> 16*2.4/100 * x = 288
=> x = 750

3. 16.5% of 300 + 70.5% of 1400 – 10% of 480 = ?
989
1000
950
900
990
Option A
16.5% of 300 + 70.5% of 1400 – 10% of 480 = ?
=>49.5 + 987 – 48 = ?
=> ? = 989

4. 564.97 + 82.00 × 44.8 – 34.2 = ?
4850
5100
4500
5050
4220
Option E
564.97 + 82.00 × 44.8 – 34.2 = ?
=> ? = 565 + 82 × 45 – 34 == 4220

5. (4444 ÷ 40) + (645 ÷ 25) + (3991 ÷ 26) = ?
270
290
325
274
310
Option B
(4444 ÷ 40) + (645 ÷ 25) + (3991 ÷ 26) = ?
=>(4444 ÷ 40) + (645 ÷ 25) + (3991 ÷ 26) = ?

6. Mathews gave a loan of Rs. 1200 to Antony and recovered it at the rate of Rs. 180 each month for eight months, commencing from the end of 1st month. What is the effective rate of simple interest per annum?
60%
20%
50%
30%
40%
Option D
Principal = Rs.1200
Amount = Rs. 180 x 8 = Rs. 1440
Interest = Rs 1440 – Rs 1200 = Rs. 240
Time = 8 months = 8/12 years
=>240 = [1200 × 2 × r]/[ 3 × 100] =>r = [3 × 100 × 240]/[ 1200 × 2] = 30%

7. The work done by a woman in 8 hours is equal to the work done by a man in 6 hours and by a boy in 12 hours. If working 6 hours per day 9 men can complete a work in 6 days then in how many days can 12 men, 12 women and 12 boys together finish the same work working 8 hours per day?
1(3/4) day
2(5/2) day
1(2/3) day
2(5/4) day
1(1/2) day
Option E
8 Women = 6 Men = 12 Boys
12M + 12W + 12B = 12M + 9M + 6M = 27M
Now, 9 × 6 × 6 = 27 × 8 × D2
=> D2 = (9 × 6 × 6)/(27 × 8) = 1(1/2) day

8. A 180-metre long train crosses another 270-meter long train running in the opposite direction in 10.8 seconds. If the speed of the first train is 60 kmph, what is the speed of the second train in kmph?
105 kmph
80 kmph
90 kmph
100 kmph
70 kmph
Option C
Time taken = 60 kmph = 60×5/18 = 50/3 m/sec.
Let the speed of other trains be x m/sec.
=> 10.8 = [180 + 270]/ 50/3 + x
=> 180 + 10.8x = 450
=> 10.8x = 450 − 180 = 270
=> x = 270/10.8 = 25 metre/sec.
= 25 × 18/5 kmph = 90 kmph

9. The Average age of 12 men is decreased by one year when two of them having ages 28 years and 32 years are replaced by two women of same age . Find the age of a women.
24 years
20 years
23 years
26 years
30 years
Option A
Age of each women be y and average age of 12 men be x.
Now,
[12x-28-32+2y]/12 = x-1
=> y = 24
