? = 136 - In an examination, Ram got 41% marks and thus able to score 70 marks above passing marks. In the same examination Ganesh got 69% marks and thus was able to score 462 marks above passing marks. Find the passing percentage of the examination.
33%28%25%36%30%Option D

Let the maximum marks of the examination be x. 0.14x – 70 = 0.69x – 462

=> x = 1400

Passing marks = 0.41*1400 – 70 = 504

Passing% = 504/1400*100 = 36% - Average age of a class having ‘6x-1’ students is 3x years. Average age of the class is increased by two years, if the age of the principal is also included. Find the total number of students in the class if the age of the principal is 90 years .
3025263528Option D

Sum of the ages of all the students = (6x-1)*3x = (18x^2 – 3x) years

Sum of the ages of students along with principal = (6x – 1 + 1)*(3x+2) = 18x^2 + 12x

18x^2 – 3x + 90 = 18x^2 + 12x

=> x = 6

So, the total number of the students in the class = 6*6 – 1 = 35 - A shopkeeper marked an article at 80% above the cost price and sold it after two consecutive discounts of 25% and 20%. Had he marked it at 60% above the cost price and sold it after a discount of 30%, he would have gained Rs. 540 more. Find the cost price of the article.
1100012000135001420010000Option C

Let the CP be x.

Original marked price of the article = Rs.1.8x

Original SP of the article = 1.8x *0.75 *0.80 = Rs.1.08x

New MP of the article = 1.60x

New SP of the article = 1.60x*0.70 = Rs.1.12x

Now, 1.12x – 1.08x = 540 => x = 13500 - A,B and C together started a business with initial investments in the ratio 7:5:8 resp. After one year, A,B and C made additional investments in the ratio 1:2:5 resp. Find the average profit share of A and C out of the total profit of Rs.4800 after two years.
Rs.1600Rs.1500Rs.1200Rs.1800Rs.1000Option D

Ratio of their profits = (7x+7x+y) : (5x+5x+2y) : (8x+8x+5y)

= 14x+y : 10x+2y : 16x+5y

Profit share of A and C together = (30x+6y)/(40x+8y)*4800 = Rs.3600

Average profit share of A and C together = 3600/2 = Rs.1800 - A football team of 11 players is to be selected from a group of 3 goalkeepers, 8 defenders and 7 attackers. In how many ways a team having exactly one goalkeeper, atleast 4 defenders and atleast 4 attackers can be selected?

Required number of ways = 3C1*8C4*7C6 + 3C1*8C5*7C5 + 3C1*8C6*7C4

= 1470 + 3528 + 2940 = 7938
