Solutions :

Solution (1)

Quantity I:

let the income in any year be x

So that saving for that year be 10% of x

New income = 105% x

New saving = 10% of 105% of x = 10.5% of x

Increase = 0.5% of x

Quantity II

Percentage increase = 0.5 / 10 * 100 % = 5%

A decrease of 50 % of 50 = 25%

Hence (b) quantity II > quantity I

Solution (2) :

Quantity I

6000 * 12 / (x * 12 ) = 2/3

24x = 216000

X= Rs. 9000

Quantity II

3000:3500 :1500

i.e. 6: 7: 3

share of second partner = 7/16 *1200 =Rs,.525

So quantity I > quantity II.

Hence (b) is the right answer

Solution (3) :

Quantity I:

Let A’s age 10 years ago = x years

Then B’s age 10 years ago = 2x years

According to the question

X+10 / 2x +10 = 2/3

3 (x+10 ) = 2(2x + 10)

3x +30 = 4x + 20

X= 10

Total of their present ages = x+10 +2x+10 = 50

Quantity II : F+S = 60 ……… ( 1)

F -5 = 9(S-5)

F-5 = 9S-45

F-9S = -40………. (2)

SUB (1) AND (2) , WE GET

10S = 100

S = 10

Age of father = 60 – S = 50 Years

Hence (e) is the correct answer

Solution (4):

Quantity I:

1man = 2 women = 3 boys

1 woman = ½ man

1 boy = 1/3 man

1man + 1 woman +1boy

= 1+1/2 + 1/3 = 11/6 men

Now, 1 man do the work in 88 days

11/6 men can do it in 88 days * 6/11= 48 days

Quantity II:

A’s 1 day work = C’s one day work

(A+B )’s 1 day work = (B’s one day work ) + C ‘s one day work

(or)

(B’s 1days work ) + (C’s 1 day work ) = 1/18

But (B’s 1 days work ) + (C’s 1days work ) = 1/24

C’s 1day’s work = 1/18 – 1/24 = 1/72

B’s one day work will be 1/ 36

Hence B alone can finish the work in 36days

ANSWER: (c ) So quantity I > quantity II

Solution (5):

Quantity I:

Let the CP be rs.100

Then MP = 115 and d = 5%

SP = 100-d% / 100 * MP

SP = 10925

Profit per cent = 9.25%

Quantity II: Let the CP be Rs.100 Then MP = 125

And SP = (110 /100 * 100 )

Rate of discount = (15/125*100 ) % = 12%
