Directions : Read the following questions carefully and choose the right answer.
1
The price of rice has increased by 20%. Lalu has decided to spend only 8% more than what he initially did on buying rice. What is the percentage decrease in Lalu's rice consumption?
» Explain it
A
Let the initial price of Lalu be Rs. 100 per unit and Lalu's consumption be 10 units.

∴   Initial amount spent = 100 × 10 = Rs. 1,000

New price of rice = 120% of 100 = Rs. 120 and new total amount spent = 108% of 1000 = Rs. 1,080

∴   New consumption =  1080  = 9 units
120

∴  Decrease in consumption = 1 unit
∴   % decrease =  1  × 100 = 10%
10

Hence, option A is correct.
2
The production of a company has ups and downs every year. The production increases for two consecutive years consistently by 15% and in the third year it decreases by 20%. Again in the next two years it increases by 25% each year and decreases by 10% in the third year. If we start counting from the year 2014 approximately what will be the effect on the production of the Company in 2018?
» Explain it
B
Suppose the production of the company in the year 2014 be x.

Then production of the company in year 2018

= x ×  115  ×  115  ×  80  ×  125  = 1.32x
100 100 100 100

∴    Increase % in the production in year 2018

=   (1.32x – x) × 100  = 32%
x

Hence, option B is correct.
3
In a village, two contestants (A & B) are contesting in an election. 70% of the registered voters cast their votes in the election and A wins the election by 400 votes. If A had received 12.5% less votes, A’s votes would have been equal to B’s votes. How many registered voters are there in the village?
» Explain it
C
Let the votes received by A be x & B be y.

Now as per the given statements,

x – y = 400        .....(1)

Also   ( 87.5 ) x = y +  ( 12.5 ) x         ...(2)
100 100

(The votes lost by A would go into B’s account)

solving (2), we get
y =   ( 3 ) x          ....(3)
4

Using (3) to solve (1) we get
x –   ( 3 ) x = 400
4

x = 1600
And, y = 1200

Now, we know that A & B collectively won 70% of total votes.

If the total number of registered voters in the village be Z,
Then,   ( 70 ) Z = 1600 + 1200 = 2800
100

Z = 4000

Hence, option C is correct.
4
A person had a certain amount. He invested 5/6th of it in shares, 5% of it in mutual funds, 10% of it in debentures and kept the remaining Rs. 850 with him. If got interest at 10% for a year on debentures, what amount did he get as interest?
» Explain it
C
5/6 corresponds to 83.33%. 
 
Hence, the amount that he kept with him corresponds to 100 − (83.33 + 5 + 10) = 1.67% of the total amount with him. This corresponds to Rs. 850
 
Also, because he placed 10% in debentures and he got 10% interest, amount obtained in interest = 10% of 10% of amount with him i.e. 1% of the amount with him. 

∴   Interest earned =  (850 × 1)  = 850 ×  3  = 510
1.67 5
 
Hence, option C is correct.
5
A car costing Rs. 5,00,000 of a person depreciated at the rate of 15% in the first year, 13% in the second year and so on. House of that person, costing Rs. 7,00,000 appreciated at the rate of 10% in the first year, 12% in the second year and so on. What was the change in total value of car, house at the end of 3 years? 
» Explain it
C
Original cost of a car and house = 500000 + 700000 = Rs. 12,00,000
 
New cost of car = 500000 × 0.85 × 0.87 × 0.89 = Rs. 329077.5
 
New cost of house = 700000 × 1.1 × 1.12 × 1.14 = Rs. 983136
 
∴  Total new cost = Rs. 13,12,213.5 
 
∴  Change = increase of Rs. 1,12,213.5 ≈ Rs. 1,12,214
 
Hence, option C is correct.

Question:
 In a village, two contestants (A & B) are contesting in an election. 70% of the registered voters cast their votes in the election and A wins the election by 400 votes. If A had received 12.5% less votes, A’s votes would have been equal to B’s votes. How many registered voters are there in the village?

Options:
4500
4200
4000
4250
None of these

Explanation: 
 

Let the votes received by A be x & B be y.

Now as per the given statements,

x – y = 400        .....(1)

Also, 

  ( 87.5 ) x = y +  ( 12.5 ) x  ...(2)
100 100


(The votes lost by A would go into B’s account)

solving (2), we get

y =   ( 3 ) x          ....(3)
4


Using (3) to solve (1) we get

x –   ( 3 ) x = 400
4


x = 1600
And, y = 1200

Now, we know that A & B collectively won 70% of total votes.

If the total number of registered voters in the village be Z, then

  ( 70 ) Z = 1600+1200 = 2800
100


Z = 4000

Hence, option C is correct.
