C.P. of the item = ( 6750 ×100 )/75 = Rs 9000
So, Reqd. S.P. of the item = (9000 × 115)/100=Rs 10350

2. (1)
Length of the rectangle = 112/8 = 14 cm, so  perimeter= 44 cm,
Circumference= 132-44=88 cm,
R = (88 × 7 )/(2 ×22)  = 14cm

3. (4)

4. 2)
Number = 740 × 35/100 - 34 = 225
2/5  of the number=90

5. 5) Total ways = 16C3   = 16!/(13!×3!) = 560
Favourable ways = 4C3 + 5C3  = 4!/(3!×1!) + 5!/(3!×2!)
Required probability = 1/40
