75
Option 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

7. 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. 44220
Rs. 34720
Rs. 40025
Option 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

8. 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 km
400 km
500 km
630 km
330 km
Option 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

9. 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)days
56(2/5)days
65(4/3)days
76(2/3)days
55(1/3)days
Option 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

10. 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 ?

6.2% per annum
3.3% per annum

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
