1 . (4)

2. (1)

3. (2)

4. (5)

5. (2)

6. (3)

P = 29000 CI = 9352.5 N = 2 years A = P + I = 38,352.5

Substituting the values in

A = P(1 + R/100)^n

Solving we get R = 15%.

7. (2)

The required time will be the LCM of 8, 18 and 15 which is 360 sec or 6 minutes.

8. (3)

Π R^2 = 39424

R = 112

Perimeter of square = 4a = 112

Side of square = 112/4 = 28

Area of square = 28^2 = 784 cm2.

9. (1)

Number of ways = 5C2 * 6C2 *3C1 = 450

10. (4)

Number of ways = 11C2 * 3C3 = 55.
