(a) 20,000 litres
(b) 18,000 litres
(c) 19,000 litres

10. When price of milk increased by 25% by what percentage a household should reduce consumption of the milk, so that total expenditure increased by only 10% ?
(a) 15%
(b) 16%
(c) 18%
(d) 12%
(e) None of these

Solutions:

1. (b) 25 days
If he works for 40 days , he will get = 400
But , he got Rs 220
400 – 220 = 180.
Now, on every leave he losses Rs 10+ Rs 2 = Rs 12
So, Leave days = 180/12 = 15 days.
Working Days = 40- 15 = 25 days.

2. (d) 4
[(10x+y) – (10y+x)] / 10 = 3.6
9x-9y = 36
(x-y) = 4

3. (b) 115 wickets.
Let no. of wickets taken after this match = X
Now, acc to question,
15.4(X-5) +31 = 15X
0.4X-77+31 = 0
0.4X = 46
X=115

Also,
If we let the number of wickets before this match be X
Then, acc to question
15.4X +31 = (X+5)15
0.4X = 75-31= 44
X= 110
Hence, after this match wickets = 110+5 = 115.

4. (d) 120 kg
Salt:Water = 15:85 = 3:17, total = 20 units
Now, after evaporating 30 kg, Ratio = 1:4
Now, since water evaporates, salt remains same
Therefore, 1:4 = 3:12
Water evaporated = 17-12 = 5 units.
But, given water evaporated = 30 kg
Therefore, 1 unit = 6 kg
Hence, total solution = 6x(3+17) = 7x20 = 120kg.

5. 135 days
M1D1H1E1W2 = M2D2H2E2W1
25x30x6x1.5 x400 = 20xD2x5x1x200

D2 = 135 days.

6. (c) 65 years
Interest in 5 years = 2P
Required Interest = 26P.
2P/26P = 5/X
X= 65 years.

7. (e) None of these 8 (2/5) days
(4B+2M)6 = (5B+6M)4
4B = 12M
1B= 3M.
Now,
(4B+2M)6 = (2B+4M)D
4B+2M = 12M+2M = 14M and 2B+4M = 10M
14Mx6 = 10MxD
D= 84/10 = 8(2/5)days.

8. (b) 90 days
25x30x6x1.5/ (200x10x20) = 30x5xDx1 / (400x20x10)
D= 5x6x2x1.5 = 90 days.

9. (b) 18,000 litres
Let the capacity be Y litres.
And Efficiency of A be X/hr
Therefore, Efficiency of B = 5/min = 300/hr
Efficiency of A+(-B) = X-300/hr.
Now, Capacity when A works alone = 12hrs* X/hr = 12X = Y
Capacity When Aand B worked together = 15hrs*(X-300)/hr = 15(X-300)= Y
But, Capacity is same. Therefore,
12X= 15(X-300) = Y
3X= 4500
X= 1500
Y = 12X= 12*1500 = 18,000 litres.

10. (d) 12%
Expenditure = Price*Consumption
New price = 1.25 of Original Price
New Expenditure = 1.10 of Original Expenditure.
New Consumption = ?
1.10Exp = 1.25Price*Consumption
110/125= 0.88 = New Consumption
So reduction = 1-0.88 = .12= 12%
