=> ? = 820 + 154 = 974 - Two equal amounts of money are deposited in two banks, each at 9% per annum, for 4( ½) and 6(1/2) years. If the difference between their interests is Rs.288, Find each sum.
Rs.1200Rs.1600Rs.1300Rs.1100Rs.1800Option B

Let each sum be Rs. P.

Then,( 𝑝 × 9 × 13)/(100 × 2) – (𝑝 × 9 × 9)/(100 × 2) = 288

=> 117𝑃/200 − 81𝑃/200 = 36𝑃/200 = 288

=> 𝑃 = (288 × 200)/36

= Rs.1600 - By selling an article for Rs. 160, a dealer makes 20% loss. Next time, the dealer sold the same article in such a way that he gained 25%. What is the difference between the percentage increase in his selling price and loss made by him earlier?
42.27%25.45%46.12%36.25%30.15%Option D

Given, S1 = Rs. 160,

Loss = 20%

S2 = ? and Gain % = 25 %

S2 = 160 ×100/(100−20)×125/100

= Rs.250

Percentage Increase in S.P = (250−160)/160 ×100 = 56.25%

Required Difference = 56.25% − 20% = 36.25% - A man can swim 45 m/min in still water swims 250m against the current and 250 m with the current. If the total time taken by man is 20 min, what is the speed of the current?
7040805030Option E

Let speed of current = x m/min

=> 250 /(45 – 𝑥) + 250/( 45 + 𝑥) = 20

=> 25(45 + 𝑥 + 45 − 𝑥) /45² − 𝑥² = 2

=>x² = 45^2 − 25× 90/ 2

=> x² = 45(45- 25)

=> x² = 900

=> x= 30 m/min. - The electricity bill of a certain establishment is partly fixed and partly varies as the number of units of electricity consumed. When in a certain month, 540 units are consumed, the bill is Rs. 1800. In another month, 620 units are consumed and the bill is Rs. 2040. In yet another month, 500 units are consumed? What would be the bill for the month?
18851225115021051680Option E

Bill for (620 – 540)

=> 80 units = 2040 – 1800 = 240

Bill for 1 unit = 240 /80 = 𝑅𝑠. 3

Bill for (540 – 500) = 40 units

= 40 × 3 = Rs. 120

Required bill = 1800 – 120

= 1680 - A box contains 100 balls, numbered from 1 to 100. If three balls are selected at random and with replacement from the box, what is the probability that the sum of the three numbers on the balls selected from the box will be odd?
1/52/31/21/32/7Option C

P(odd) = P(even) = 1/2 (because there are 50 odd and 50 even numbers)

Sum or the three numbers can be odd only under the 4 cases: Odd + Odd + Odd = 1/2×1/2×1/2 =1/8 Odd + Even + Even =1/2×1/2×1/2 = 1/8

Even + Odd + Even = 1/2×1/2×1/2 = 1/8

Even + Even + Odd = 1/2×1/2×1/2 = 1/8

Other combinations of odd and even will give even numbers.

Adding up the 4 scenarios above: = 1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8

= 4/8 = 1/2
