10. After selling a watch, shyam found that he had made a loss of 10%. He also found that had he sold it for Rs.27 more, he would have made a profit of 5%. the actual initial loss was what percentage of the profit earned,had he sold the watch for a 5% profit?

(a) 23%
(b) 150%
(c) 200%
(d) 180%
(e) None of these.

1.(a) Total increase = 8 * 2 = 16 years
So, total age of two women = 35 + 45 +16= 96
Average age of two women=96/2=48 years

2.(c) 2, 4, 6, ………… 100
Average = (1st No. + Last No.) /2 = (2+100)/2 = 51

3. (a) S.I. for 3 years = Rs. (12005 - 9800) = Rs. 2205.
S.I. for 5 years= Rs. 3675
Principal = Rs. (9800 - 3675) = Rs. 6125
Hence Rate = {(100 × 3675) / 6125 × 5} % = 12 %

4. a) Let C.P. be Rs. x and S.P. be Rs. y.
Then, 3(y - x) = (2y - x)     y = 2x.
Profit = Rs. (y - x) = Rs. (2x - x) = Rs. x.
So profit % =100%

5.    (D):
Short tricks : Let the initial investment money ratio of Jon and Harry is 2x and 3x So Jon , Harry and Ron ratio of investment is ( Jon : Harry : Ron )
= (2x X 12 ) : ( 3x X 12 ) : ( 3x X 6 ) = 24 : 36 : 18 = 4 : 6 : 3

6.    (B):
Suppose Ramesh invested Rs. x. Then,
Manoj : Ramesh = 120000 * 6 : x *12.
720000/12x: 6000/3000
x = 30000

7. (c)  Let speed of cyclist  = x kmph
480/(72 - x) X 5/18 = 32
x = 18 kmph

8. (a) Let speed of 1st train = x kmph
(180 + 120)/(x X 5/18)  = 20
x = 54 kmph

9.Let the number to be added x , Then
3 + x / 5 + x = 5 / 6
6 ( 3 + x ) = 5 ( 5 + x )
x = ( 25 – 18 ) = 7
So , the number to be added is 7 .

10. Profit= 5% (If case )
5% of CP ------> Rs. 27   So, CP = Rs. 540
Now, Loss% = 10
Loss =Rs. 54   Required % = 54*100/27 = 200%
