(B) 10%

(C) 7%

(D) 8%

Answers and Solution:

1. (B)

Work done by A and B = 3/5

work done by C = 1-3/5 = 2/5

Amount paid to C = 30000*2/5 = 12000

2. (D)

3. (A)

Required number is

= HCF of 24,15 and 18

= 3

4. (B)

Greatest number that will divide 148,246 and 322 leaving remainders 4,6 and 10 respectively

= HCF of 144,240 and 312

= 24

5. (A)

6. (D)

7. (A)

8. (B)

let marked price = x

discount price – 1/4 x

selling price – x – 1/4 x = 3/4 x

Required ratio = marked price : selling price

= x : 3/4 x

= 4:3

9. (B)

sale price = 981

tax = 9%

cost price = 981*100/109

= 900

marked price = 981

required discount = 981-900 = 81

10. (B)

Marked price = 95000

= 9500*90/100*(100-x)/100 = 7695

x = 10%

3- (A)

4- (C)

cost price of Rubi stone = Rs.1600

cost price of Ring = Rs.2400

Actual cost price = Rs. 4000

Selling price = (7800*90/100)= 7020

profit percent = (7020-4000)/4000 * 100=75.5%

5- (A)

Let the cost price of cow = 100

so, overall profit

= (20*15+40*19+16*25) = 1460

If total price is 1460 then cost price =100

if profit is 6570 then cost price = 100/1460 *6570 = 450
