1. 2;  Average speed of the car =   = 75 km/h
Average speed of the tractor = 75 ×   =30 km/h
Distance covered by the tractor = 30 × 8 = 240 km
2. 1;  Length of the rectangle = 25 cm
Breadth of the rectangle =   –1 = 4 cm
Area of the rectangle = 25 × 4 = 100 sq cm
Area of the square = 4 × 100 = 400 sq cm
Side of the square = 20 cm
Perimeter of the square = 4 × 20 = 80 cm
3. 1;  (12)3 – (22)2 = 1728 – 484 = 1244
4. 3;    = 61
5. 3;  Varun’s present age = 39 – 5 = 35 years
So, Tarun’s present age = 15 years
Tarun’s age 4 years ago = 11 years
6. 1;  Let the numbers be x, x + 2, x + 4, x+6 and x + 8.
According to the question,
x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 + x + 8=170
or 5x + 20 = 170
or x + 4 = 34
or x = 30.
Second largest No. = 30 + 6 = 36
Square of smallest No. = 900
Sum of these Nos. = 900 + 36 = 936
7. 4;
8. 3;
9. 1; I = 25000 ×  = 3750,  r =  = 5%
10. 3;  Second selling price  = 6500 ×   = 6448
Loss = 6500 – 6448 = 52

(c)  5 : 7
(d) 2 : 7
6.  20 L of a mixture contains 20% alcohol and the rest water. If 4 L of water be mixed in it, the percentage water be mixed in it, the percentage of alcohol in the new mixture, will be
