Answers
1. (3)
Required percentage = 20400/240000 * 100 = 8.5

2. (1)
Estimated mislaneous cost = 8% of 240000 = 19200
Total expenditure of family = 240000 – 19200 + 20400 – 12% of 13% of 240000 = 237456

3. (5)
Required difference = (19-11)% of 240000 = 19200

4. (2)
Requires cost = (15+14)% of 240000 = 69600

5. (4)
Amount spent on furniture = (100-12)% of 13% of 240000 = 27456
