6. There are five boxes in a cargo hold. The weight of the first box is 200 kg and the weight of the second box is 20% higher than the weight of the third box, whose weight is 25% higher than the first box. The fourth box is of 350 kg and the fifth box is of 500kg. Find the difference in average weight of the four heaviest boxes and the four lightest boxes .
41.5 kg
33.3 kg
52.2 kg
37.5 kg
25.2 kg
Option D
Weight of the 1st box = 200 kg
Weight of the 3rd box = 250 kg
Weight of 2nd box = 300 kg
Weight of 4th box = 350 kg
Weight of 5th box = 500 kg
Average weight of four heaviest boxes = 1400/4 = 350 kg
and average weight of four lightest boxes = 1100/4 = 275 kg
Difference = (350 – 275)/2 = 37.5 kg

7. A small aeroplane can travel at 320 km/h in still air. The wind is blowing at a constant speed of 40 km/h. The total time for a journey against the wind is 135 min. What will be the time in minutes for the return journey with the wind?
85 min
105 min.
115 min
90 min
100 min
Option B
Speed of aeroplane against the wind = (320 – 40) = 280 km/h.
Let the distance be x km.
Then, 135/60 = x/280
=> x = 630 km
Speed of Aeroplane with the wind = (320 + 40) = 360 km/h
Time taken by aeroplane with the wind
=630/360 × 60 min = 105 min.

8. My friend collects antique stamps. She purchased two, but found that she needed to raise money urgently So, she sold them for Rs 8000 each. On one she made 20% profit and on the others she lost 20%. How much did she gain or loss in the entire transaction ?
Rs 514.13
Rs 452.42
Rs 540.36
Rs 600.15
Rs 666.66
Option E

CP of stamp sold at a profit of 20% = 80000/12
= 6666.66
CP of stamp sold at a loss cf 20% = 8000/0.8
= 10000
Total SP = 6666.66 + 10000 = 16666.66
Total SP = 2 × 8000 = Rs. 16000
Loss = 16666.66 – 1600 = Rs 666.66

9. Two equal sums of money were invested, one at 4% and the other at 4(1/2)%. At the end of 7 yr, the simple interest received from the latter exceeded that received from the former by Rs 31.50. Find each sum .
Rs.600
Rs.700
Rs.400
Rs.900
Rs.200
Option D
Let each sum be Rs x,
then, (x* 9/2 *7)/100 – (x*4*7)/100 = 31.5
=> x = Rs 900
