» Explain it
D
Statement I:

The age of Rahul at the time of marrige = 25 years.

Statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II:

Total age of Rahul and his wife at the time of marrige = 24 × 2 = 48 years.

Statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement III:

Difference between the ages of Rahul and his son = 24 years.

Statement III alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

All the statements are not sufficient to answer the question because in these statements it is not given that when Rahul got married

Hence, option D is correct.

What is the ratio of the volume of the cube to the volume of the cuboid?

I. The Total Surface Area of the cuboid is 352 cm2 and the ratio of the length, breadth and height of the cuboid is 3 : 2 : 1.

II. The Total Surface Area of the cube is 726 cm2.

III. The length of the cuboid is 1.5 times of the breadth of the cuboid and 3 times of the height of the cuboid. The difference between the height and the length of the cuboid is 8cm.
» Explain it
C
Statement I:

Total Surface Area of cuboid = 2 (lb + bh + hl)

Let length = 3x, breadth = 2x, height = x

352 = 2 (3x 
× 2x + 2x × x + x × 3x)

176 = (6x2 +2x2 + 3x2)

176 = 11x2

x2 = 16

x = 4

Length = 12cm, Breadth = 8cm, Height = 4cm

Volume = lbh

= 12 × 8 × 4 = 384cm3

Statement II:

Total Surface Area of cube = 6s2

384 = 6s2

s= 64

s = 8 cm

Volume of the cube = s3

= 83 = 512 cm3

Statement III:

Height of the cuboid = x cm, length = 3x, breadth = 2x

Difference = 3x 
– x 

8 = 2x

x = 4

length = 12cm, breadth = 8cm, height = 4cm

Volume = lbh

= 12 × 8 × 4 = 384cm3

We can solve this question with the help of either statement I and II or statement II and III.

Hence, option C is correct.

C
Statement I:

Principal = Rs 9000

Interest =  Principal × Rate × time
100

2700 =  9000 × Rate × 2
100

2700  = Rate
180

Statement I alone is not sufficient to give the answer.

Statement II:

Amount = Rs 11700

Statement II alone is not sufficient to give the answer.

Statement I + Statement II:

Principal = Rs 9000, Amount = Rs 11700, time = 2 years, Interest = 11700 – 9000 = Rs 2700

Rate = 15%

Data in Statement I and II is sufficient to give the answer.

Statement III:

Let Principal = Rs x, Amount = Rs 2x, time = 20/3 years, interest = 2x – x = Rs x

Interest =  Principal × Rate × time
100

x =  x × Rate × 20
300

Rate = 15%

Statement III alone is sufficient to give the answer.

Hence, option C is correct.

D
Statement I:

Total age of five family member = 36 × 5 = 180 years

Statement I alone is not sufficient to give the answer.

Statement II:

Total age of Nidhi, Vidhi and Anil = 75 years

Statement II alone is not sufficient to give the answer.

Statement III:

Let the age of Ajay = x years

Age of Anil = x + 12 years

Statement III alone is not sufficient to give the answer.

The data in statement I, II and III is not sufficient to give the answer.

Hence, option D is correct.

C
Statement I:

2xyz + 6y – 8z + 5 = 0, z = 1

2xy 
× 1 + 6y – 8 × 1 + 5 = 0

2xy + 6y – 8 + 5 = 0

2xy + 6y – 3 = 0

Statement II:

II. y = 225 – 116

y = 9

y = 3

Statement III:

4xyz – 6z + 8y – 7 = 0, z = 3

4xy × 3 – 6 × 3 + 8y – 7 = 0

12xy – 18 + 8y – 7 = 0

12xy + 8y – 25 = 0

We can receive the value of x with the help of any two statements.

Hence, option C is correct.
