Directions(1-5): Find the value of “?” in the following questions.

1. (26.712)^2 * 6.001 / 6.32 + (7.43)^3 + 40.02 = ? â€“ 210.75
1385
1515
1352
1100
1212
Option A
(26.712)^2 * 6.001 / 6.32 + (7.43)^3 + 40.02 = ? â€“ 210.75 => (27)^2 * 6 / 6 + (7.4)^3 + 40 = ? â€“ 211
=> ? = 729 + 405 + 40 + 211
=> ? = 1385

2. 0.5% of 4789.823 + 0.7% of 330.732 = ?

Option D
0.5% of 4789.823 + 0.7% of 330.732 = ?
=> ? = 4790/200 + 331/100 * (0.7)
=> ? = 24 + 2 = 26

3. (8835.95)^1/2 – (373248)^1/3 = ? â€“ (238328)^1/3
92
71
65
84
77
Option D
(8835.95)^1/2 – (373248)^1/3 = ? â€“ (238328)^1/3
=> (8836)^1/2 – (373248)^1/3 = ? â€“ (238328)^1/3
=> 94 â€“ 72 = ? â€“ 62
=> ? = 84

4. 45% of 330 + (?)^1/2 = 34% of 765.23 – 9.8% of 450
4005
4556
4050
4120
4300
Option B
45% of 330 + (?)^1/2 = 34% of 765.23 – 9.8% of 450
=> 45 * 3.3 + ()^1/2 = 34 * 7.65 â€“ 9.8 * 4.5
=> 148.5 + ()^1/2 = 260.1 â€“ 44.1
=> ? = 67.5 * 67.5 == 4556

5. (5.3 + 6.2 + 7.1)(3.2 + 4.2 + 5.1) = ? + 12.23
210.3
220.27
199.5
228.51
200.5
Option B
(5.3 + 6.2 + 7.1)(3.2 + 4.2 + 5.1) = ? + 12.23
=> ? = 18.6 * 12.5 -12.23 = 232.5 â€“ 12.23
=> ? = 220.27

6. Directions(6-10): Study the given pie-charts carefully and answer the questions
given below:
The pie-charts show the major expenses in agriculture under different heads in year 2000-
01 and 2010-11.

Year 2000-01

Year 2010-11

7. In terms of actual expenditure on electricity and diesel, the increase in year 2010-11, as compared to 2000-01, was roughly.
5.35 times
2.41 times
3.50 times
2.52 times
1.57 times
Option E
Expenses on Electricity and Diesel in 2000- 01
= 8% of 15432 = 1234.56 crore
And in the year 2010-11 expenses = 9% of 35349 = 3181.41 crore
Difference of expenses on the same = 3181.41 – 1234.56= 1946.81 crore
Number of times of increase = 1946.81/1234.56
= 1.57 times

8. The expenditure on fertilisers and feed in year 2000-01 amounted to approximately.
7070 crore
8500 crore

Expenses on Fertilisers in 2000-01 = 17% of 15432
= 2623.44 crore
And that on Feed in 2000-01 = 30% of 15432 = 4629.6 crore
Total = 2623.44 + 4629.6 = 7253.04 crore
== 7253 crore

= 17% of 15432 = 2623.44 crore == 2623 crore
Now, the expenses on fertilisers in the year 2010-11 = 29% of 35349 = 10251.21 crore == 10251 crore
Difference = 10251 -2623 = 7628 crore
Number of times = 7628/2623 = 2.9 == 3 times
