## ANSWER

**1. Answer (b)**

**Explanation: **Let the employee be x, then

x/2 + x/3 +x/4 = 182

On solving, X = 168

**2. Answer (d)**

**Explanation:** Here C.P = 100%., S.P = 120%

If he bought at 20% less then C.P = 80%

Required S.P = 80%×125/100=100%

120% – 80 = 100%

20% = 80

C.P is 100%, Then 100% = Rs 400.

**3. Answer (b)**

**Explanation: **Total investment = Rs. 4725

Total SP = 1.4 ×4725 = 6615

Now, Let the price of 4 seater be x then price of two seater will be .75x.

8x + 22 ×0.75x = 6615

24.5x= 6615 or x = 270.

**4. Answer (b)**

**Explanation: **

**5. Answer (c)**

**Explanation: **1st case time taken = 40/5 = 8 hours

2nd case = 40/8 = 5 hours

Scheduled time = 8 hours – 80 minutes = 6 hours and 40 minutes. If Ram walks at speed of 8 km /hour, then he takes 5 hours to reach the destination and the fixed time is 6 hours and 40 minutes. He reaches early by 1 hour and 40 minutes.

**6. Answer (a)**

**Explanation:** Required number of sweets in each box = LCM (20, 25,38 and 40) – 5

⇒ 3,800 − 5 = 3,795.

**7. Answer (c)**

**Explanation:**

**8. Answer (a)**

**Explanation:** The customer pays Rs. 63 after a discount of 10%.

If the list price is Rs. x , then

X – 10% of x = 63

X = Rs. 70

Therefore, the list price = Rs. 70

The retailer buys the article at 30 % discount

= 70 – 30 % of 70

= Rs. 49

Then the profit for the retailer = Rs. (63 – 49) = Rs.14.

**9. Answer (c)**

**Explanation: **Amount returned on the completion of course = 12,00,000 × (1.08)^{2} = 13,99,680

Half returned after completion of two years = 6,99,840

Amount returned after two year of completion of course = 6,99,840 × (1.10)^{2} = 8,46,806

Total amount returned = 6,99,840 + 8,46,806 = 15,46,646

**10. Answer (b) **

**Explanation:** Let the total time that Ram takes to complete the entire journey be t hours

Ram spent 40%, 50% and the remaining 10% of the time walking, in the bus and in the cab respectively.

Thus, time spent walking, in the bus and in the cab are 0.4 t, 0.5 t and 0.1 t respectively.

So Average speed=Total distance covered/ Total Time taken

= 40(0.4 t) + 60(0.5 t) + 150(0.1 t)/t = 61 km/hr
