(c) Rs. 200. 50
(d) Rs. 201.00

(b) 600
(c) 750
(d) 900

(b) 22030
(c) 1220
(d) 1250

10.A number of friends decided to go on a picnic and planned to spend Rs. 108 on eatables. Three of them however did not turn up. As a consequence each one of the remaining had to contribute Rs. 3 extra. The number of them who attended the picnic was:
(a) 15
(b) 12
(c) 9
(d) 6

SOLUTION
1.(a)
2.(b)
3.(c) According to question.
A : B = 2 : 1
B : C = 4 : 1
so A : B : C = 8 : 4 : 1
4.(c)
= 100 – (60 + 70 – 40)
= 100 – 90 =  10

6.(a) Total age of 40 boys
= 40 * 16 = 640 years
Now total age of 40 boys
= 40 * 15.875 = 635 years
= {635 – (640 – 17)}
= 12 years

7.(b) Total wages of 500 workers
= 500 * 200 = 100000
Now, according to question,
? = (100000 – 180 – 20 + 80 + 220)/500
= 100100/500 = Rs. 200.20

8.(c) Le the length of train be x metre
Speed = 90 km/hr
= (90 * 5) /18 meter/sec.
= 25 metre/sec.
so Distance covered in 60 sec.
= 25 * 60 = 1500 metres
Now, according to question.
2x = 1500
so x = 750 meter

9.(a) According to question,
Divisor = 555 + 445 = 1000
Dividend = ?
Quotient = (555 – 445) * 2
= 110 * 2 = 220
Remainder = 30
Dividend = (Divisor * Quotient) + Remainder
= (1000 * 220) + 30
= 220000 + 30 = 220030

10.(c) Let the number of friends be x.
so 108/(x – 3) – 108/x = 3
108 * 3 /x(x -3) = 3
=> x^2 – 3x = 108
=> x^2 – 12x + 9x – 108 = 0
=> x(x-12)  + 9 (x -12) = 0
(x – 12) (x + 9) = 0
X = 12
Number of friends who attended
= 12 – 3 = 9
