x > y
x >= y
y >= x
y > x
No relation
Option C
I.2x^2 – 9x + 10 = 0
=>2x^2 – 5x – 4x + 10 = 0
=>x = 2,5/2
II.2y^2 -13y + 20 = 0
=>2y^2 -8y -5y + 20 = 0
=>y = 4,5/2
y >=x

II.y^2 -24y + 144 = 0
x >= y
y >= x
x > y
y > x
No relaton
Option B
I. x^2 = 144
=> x = -12,+12
II.y^2 -24y + 144 = 0

6. Ram and Shyam are travelling from point A to B, which are 60 km apart. Travelling at a certain speed ram takes one hour more than Shyam to reach point B. If Ram doubles his speed he will take 30 minutes less than Shyam to reach point B. At what speed was Ram driving from point A to B ?
30 kmph
10 kmph
40 kmph
60 kmph
20 kmph
Option E
AB = 60 km
Ram’s speed = x kmph
Shyam’s speed = y kmph
60/x – 60/y = 1 …………..(i)
60/y – 60/2x = ½ ……………(ii)
From (i) and (ii)
Speed,x = 20 kmph

7. A shopkeeper marks up the price of his product by 40%. If he increases the discount from 5% to 10% ,the profit would decrease by Rs 14. How much profit would he earn if he gives a discount of 20% on the marked price?

14
10
24
20
Option D

=>SP == 280
1.4 CP == 280
CP = 200
New CP = 80/100*280 = 224
=>Profit = 224 – 200 = 24

60%
80%
Option D
Marks of T = 75
Marks of R = 65
Marks of Q = 110
Marks of P = 85

10. One fill pipe A takes 3 minutes more to fill the cistern than two fill pipes A and B opened together to fill it. Second fill pipe B 21(1/3) takes minutes more to fill cistern than two fill pipes A and B opened together to fill it. When will the cistern be full if both pipes are opened simultaneously.
3 minutes
5 minutes
8 minutes
4 minutes
9 minutes
Option C
Let pipes A and B takes x minutes together.
A will take (x+3 ) minutes to fill the tank.
B will tank (x+64/3 ) minutes to fill the tank.
1/(x+3) + 1/(x+64/3) = 1/x
x = 8 minutes
