ANSWERS
1. (2)
Total students are 40 × 15 = 600
So, 18 x 16 + (12 + 14) = 456
Left student is 10 and their average is =600-456= 144÷ 10=14.4

2. (1)
The interest in 2 years is 594.5 which is 10.25% of 5800. Hence the rate of interest is 5% p.a.

3. (2)
Upstream speed = 5 km/hr
Downstream speed = 15 km/hr
Speed of boat in still water = (5 + 15)/2 = 10 km/hr
Required time = 90/10 = 9 hrs

4. (5)
Let the rate of interest is=x
(X * 5000 * 2)/100 + (3000 * 4 * x)/100 = 2200
x = 10%

5. (4)
Let Car A takes t hrs to reach  the place
Distance is same,
35 t = 55(t – 7/2)
T = 77/8
Distance = 35 * 77/8 = 336.87 km

6. (3)
Let the number  be X and Y
Then 6y – x = 71 and 7x + y = 62
 Solving the equation
X = 7,  y = 13

7. (2) C.I. = 85000 × (19.1016/100)
= Rs 16236.36 Approx.

8. (3) Difference of time = 5000/60 − 5000/(60 * 1.15)
= 5000/60 − 5000/69
= 83.33 – 72.46
= 10 min (Approx.)

9. (3)
3*B’s daily work= (A+C)’s daily work
4*B’s daily work = (A+B+C)’s daily work = 1/20
B’s daily work = 1/80
2*C’s daily work = (A+B)’s daily work
3*C’s daily work = (A+B+C)’s daily work = 1/20
C’s daily work= 1/60
A’s daily work= 1/20 - (1/80 + 1/60) = 1/48
A can finish the work in 48 days.

10. (4)
Let the side of park be=’x’
Area of path= 2{(x + 10)5 + 5x}
