Directions : Read the following questions carefully and choose the right answer.
Important for :
1
In a town males and females are in the ratio 3 : 2. Out of males 25% are children and rest are adults. If the adult male population of the town  is 8100, find the total population of the town .
» Explain it
D
Let the total population of the town= y

 % of males = 3 × 100% = 60% 5

 % of adult males = 100 – 25 × 60% = 45% 100

 45 × y = 8100 100

 ⇒ y = 8100 × 100 45

⇒ y = 18000

Hence, option (D) is correct.

2
The area of a square is equal to the area of a rectangle of length 28 cm and breadth 7 cm. Find the circumference of the circle whose diameter is equal to the side of the square.
» Explain it
B
Area of square = (side)2

And, Area of rectangle = 28 × 7 = 196 cm2

Now,

(side)2 = 196 cm2

∴ side of square = 14 cm

 = side of square = 14 = 7cm 2 2

⇒ Radius of circle = 7cm

We know that,

Circumference of circle = 2 π (Radius)
 = 2 × 22 × 7 7
= 44 cm

Hence, option (B) is correct.

3
P, Q and R start running around a circular field having circumference 120 metre at the same time from the same point. Speeds of P, Q and R are 4 m/minute, 8 m/minute and 10 m/minute. Find after how much time, they will meet again at the same point for the first time.
» Explain it
D
Time taken by P to complete one round

 = 120 = 30 minutes 4

Time taken by Q to complete one round
 = 120 = 15 minutes 8

Time taken by R to complete one round
 = 120 = 12 minutes 10

LCM of 30, 15 and 12 = 60

Hence, they will meet after 60 minutes.

Hence, option (D) is correct.

4
Compound interest on a certain sum at the rate of 12% per annum after 2 years is Rs.142464. Find the simple interest on that sum at the rate of 15% per annum for 7 years.
» Explain it
A
We know that

 CI = P [ ( 1 + r ) 2 – 1 ] 100

 ⇒ 142464 = P [ ( 1 + 12 ) 2 – 1 ] 100

 ⇒ 142464 = P [ ( 1 + 3 ) 2 – 1 ] 25

 ⇒ 142464 = P [ ( 28 ) 2 – 1 ] 25

 ⇒ 142464 = P 784 – 625 625

 ⇒ P = 142464 × 625 159

⇒ P = Rs.560000
 SI = P × r × t 100

Hence,
 reqd. SI = 560000 × 15 × 7 = Rs.588000 100

Hence, option (A) is correct.

5
A mixture contains milk and water in the ratio 7 : 4. If 22 litres of mixture is replaced with water the ratio of milk and water becomes 5 : 6. Find the quantity of milk in the original mixture.
» Explain it
A
Let the quantity of milk and water in the original mixture is 7x litres and 4x litres.

Quantity of milk in 22 litres mixture

 = 7 × 22 = 14 litres 11

Quantity of water in 22 litres mixture
 = 4 × 22 = 8 litres 11

According to the question
 7x – 14 = 5 4x – 8 + 22 6

 ⇒ 7x – 14 = 5 4x + 14 6

⇒ 42x – 84 = 20x + 70

⇒ 22x = 154
 ⇒ x = 154 22

⇒ x = 7

Quantity of milk in the original mixture = 7x = 7 × 7 = 49 litres.

Hence, option (A) is correct.
