9555856575Option C

Let the maximum marks be x.

Then, x Ã— 30% + 10 = x Ã— 40% – 15

=>x Ã— 10% = 25

=> x = 250

Passing marks = 250 Ã— 30/100 + 10 = 85 - Rubina decided to donate 16% of her monthly salary to an NGO. On the day of donation she changed her mind and donated Rs. 6,567 which was 75% of what she had decided earlier. How much is Rubinaâ€™s monthly salary ?
Rs. 31525Rs. 54725Rs. 44220Rs. 34720Rs. 40025Option B

Let Rubinaâ€™s monthly salary be Rs. x.

According to the question, 75% of 16% of x = 6567

=>x Ã—16/100 Ã— 75/100 = 6567

=> x = 6567*100*100/16*75 = Rs. 54725 - A car covers a distance of 528 km. in a certain time at a speed of 66 km./hr. How much distance would a truck cover at an average speed which is 24 km hr. less than that of the speed of the car in time which is 7 hours more than that taken by the car?
480 km400 km500 km630 km330 kmOption D

Case I:

Time taken by car = 528/66 = 8 hours

Case II:

Time =15 hours

Speed = 66 – 24 = 42 kmph

Distance covered by truck = Speed Ã— Time

= 15 Ã— 42 = 630 km - 15 men can complete a work in 210 days. They started the work but at the end of 10 days 15 additional men, with double efficiency, were inducted. How many days in all did they take to finish the work ?
42(2/7)days56(2/5)days65(4/3)days76(2/3)days55(1/3)daysOption D

Total time taken to finish the work

= 10 + 15(210-12)/(15+15*2)

= 10 + 15*200/45 =10 +200/3

= 76(2/3)days - A sum of Rs. 2200 is invested at two different rates of interest. The difference between the interests got after 4 years is Rs. 202.40. What is the difference between the rates of interest ?
4.1% per annum6.2% per annum3.3% per annum5.0% per annum2.3% per annumOption E

If the rates of interest be r1 and r2% per annum,

then [2200 *4(r1-r2)]/100

= 202.40

=> r1-r2 = 202.40*100/2200*4 = 2.3% per annum
