(b) Rs. 9500

(c) Rs. 6500

(d) Rs. 6000

Answers and Solution:

1.(c)

Let the age of P = x yr.

Age of Q = y yr and age of R = z yr

Now, (x+y+z)/3 = z+5

=> x+y – 2z = 15 …. (i)

and x+y = 39 …. (ii)

on solving Eqs.(i) and (ii), we get

z = 12 yr

2. (b)

3. (c)

pipe A fills a tank in 1 h = 1/2

pipe B fills a tank in 1 h = 1/3

Both pipe can fill a tank in 1 h = 1/2 + 1/3 = 5/6

So,both pipe can fill an empty tank = 6/5 h = 1 h 12 min
