- 29.8% of 260 + 60.01% of 510 – 103.57 = ?
220200222280255Option D

29.8% of 260 + 60.01% of 510 – 103.57 = ?

=>30% of 260 + 60% of 510 – 104 = ?

=>78 + 306 – 104 = 280 - (3.2)^2 + (9.8)^2 + (8.13)^2 + (4.24)^2 = ?
165188174190160Option D

(3.2)^2 + (9.8)^2 + (8.13)^2 + (4.24)^2 = ?

=>10.24 + 96.04 + 66.09 +17.96 == 190 - 9228.789 – 5021.832 + 1496.989 = ?
64205700440053206740Option B

9228.789 – 5021.832 + 1496.989 = ?

=>9230 – 5022 +1497 = ?

=> ? = 5700 - 17% of 760 + 57% of 78.99 + 77.77 = ?
247274252195262Option C

17% of 760 + 57% of 78.99 + 77.77 = ?

=>129.6 + 45.03 + 77.77 ==252 - {(4444 + 333 + 22 + 1) – (2*3*4*5)}*2.532 = ?
1174412450135401185011477Option D

{(4444 + 333 + 22 + 1) – (2*3*4*5)}*2.532 = ?

=>[4800 – 120]*2.532 = ?

=>? = 11850 - Average age of A,B and C is 84 years. When D joins them the average age becomes 80 years. A new person, E, whose age is 4 years more than D, replaces A and the average of B,C, D and E becomes 78 years. What is the age of A?
50 years90 years70 years80 years60 yearsOption D

A+B+C = 3*84 = 252 years A+B+C+D = 80*4 = 320 years

D’s age = 320 – 252 = 68 years

E’s age = 68 + 4 = 72 years

(B+C+D+E)’s age = 78*4 = 312 years

(B+C)’s age = 312 – 68 – 72 = 172 years

A’s age = 252 – 172 = 80 years - A trader buys goods at 20% discount on marked price. If he wants to make a profit of 25% after allowing a discount of 20%. By what percent should his marked price be greater than the original marked price?
33%27%30%25%20%Option D

Let original marked price is 100x.

CP for trader = 80% of 100x = 80x

Gain 25% SP = 125/100*80x = 100x

Allowed discount = 20%

Trader’s marked price = 100x/80*100 = 125x

Required% = (125x – 100x)/100x*100 = 25% - A shopkeeper buys 144 items at 90 paise each. On the way 20 items are broken. He sells the remainder at Rs.1.20 each. Find his gain percent correct to one place decimal.
16.88%15.44%17.23%10.14%14.81%Option E

CP of 124 items = 144*90/100 = Rs.129.6

Total SP = 1.2*124 = Rs.148.8

Gain% = (148.8 – 129.6)/129.6*100 = 14.81% - The ratio of number of boys and girls in a school is 2:3. If 25% of the boys and 30% of the girls are scholarship holders. Find the percentage of the school students who are not scholarship holders.
81%90%84%66%72%Option E

Let boys be 200x and girls be 300x.

Boys who are not scholarship holders = 75% of 200x = 150x

Girls who are not scholarship holders = 70% of 300x = 210x

Required% = (150x+210x)/500x*100 = 72% - A car travels from A to B at a constant speed. If its speed were increased by 10 km/hr., it would have been taken one hour lesser to cover the distance. It would have taken further 45 minutes lesser if the speed was further increased by 10 km/hr. Find the distance between these two cities.
550 km345 km360 km400 km420 kmOption E

Let the speed of the car be x km/hr.

And the time required to cover the distance be t hour.

Now, (x+10)(t-1) = xt

=>10t – x = 10 —-(1)

(x+20)(t – 7/4)= xt

=> 20t – 7/4x = 35 —-(2)

Solve both the equations, we get

x = 60 km/hr. t = 7 hours

Required Distance = 420 km
