1
A shopkeeper sold an item at a discount of 14% on marked price and earns a profit of 20% on cost price. If the difference between marked price and cost price is Rs.85000, Find the marked price of the article.
» Explain it
D
We know that

mp × (100 – %d) = cp × (100 + %p)

⇒ mp × (100 – 14) = cp × (100 + 20)

 ⇒ mp = 120 = 60 cp 86 43

⇒ mp : cp = 60 : 43

 Marked price of the article = 60 × 85000 60 – 43

 = 60 × 85000 17

= Rs.300000

Hence, option D is correct.

2
A mixture contains milk and water in the ratio 5 : 3. If 20 litres of water added to the mixture, the ratio of milk and water becomes 3 : 2. Find the quantity of milk in the original mixture.
» Explain it
C
Let the quantity of milk and water in the mixture is 5x and 3x litres.

According to the question

 5x = 3 3x + 20 2

⇒ 10x = 9x + 60

⇒ x = 60

Quantity of milk in the original mixture = 5x = 5 × 60 = 300 litres.

Hence, option C is correct.

3
One filling pipe P is three times faster than another filling pipe Q, if P can fill tank in 24 hours, then what is the time taken to completely fill the tank if both the pipes are opened together?
» Explain it
B
Let the required time taken = t hours

Let efficiency of pipe Q = x

Then, efficiency of pipe P = 3x

According to the question:

3x × 24 = (3x + x) × t

 ⇒ 72x =  t 4x
⇒ t = 18 hours

Hence, option B is correct.

4
A truck is moving on the road. It makes 3000 revolutions in moving 3.96 km. What is diameter of the wheel of the truck?
» Explain it
C
Circumference of the wheel = 2πr

Revolutions × 2πr = distance

3000 × 2 × 22 × r ÷ 7 = 396000

r = 21 cm.

Diameter = 21 × 2  = 42 cm.

Hence, option C is correct.
5
Simple interest on a certain sum at the rate of 8% per annum after three years will be Rs.14400. Find the compound interest on that sum at the rate of 12% per annum after 2 years.
» Explain it
A
Let the sum = Rs. P

 P × r × t = SI 100

 ⇒ P × 8 × 3 = 14400 100

 ⇒ P = 1440000 24

⇒ P = Rs. 60000

 Reqd. CI = 60000 × 112 × 112 – 60000 100 100

= Rs. (75264 – 60000) = Rs.15264

Hence, option A is correct.
