**Answers and Solution:**

1. (A)

Workdone by A and B in 1 day =
1/18

Workdone by B and C in 1 day =
1/24

Workdone by C and A in 1 day =
1/36

so Workdone by 2(A, B and C) in 1
day = 1/18 + 1/24 + 1/36 = 9/72

so Workdone by A, B and C in 1
day = 9/(72*2) = 9/144 = 1/16

so all of them together complete
the work in 16 days.

2. (C)

Workdone by (A + B) in 1 day =
1/72

Workdone by (B + C) in 1 day =
1/120

Workdone by (C + A) in 1 day =
1/90

so Workdone by 2(A + B + C) in 1
day = 1/72 + 1/120 + 1/90 = 1/30

so Workdone by (A + B + C) in 1
day = 1/(30*2) = 1/60

so Workdone by (A + B + C) in 3
day = = 1/60 *3 = 1/20

3. (C)

A can complete 2/3 of a work in 4
days

A can complete the whole of a
work in (4*3)/2 = 6 days

similarly B can complete the
whole of a work in (6*5)/3 = 10 days

so Workdone by A and B in 1 day =
1/6 + 1/10 = 4/15

so Days taken by A and B to
complete the whole work = 15/4 = 3(3/4)

4. (C)

Ratio of share of A,B c = ratio
of 1 day's work

= 1/15 : 1/20 : 1/24

= 120*1/15:120*1/20 :
120*1/24 = 8:6:5

so sum of ratio turms = 8+6+5 =
19

so The share of C = 76*5/19 =
Rs.20

5. (C)

6.(D); Let the numbers be x, x +
2, x + 4, x+6 and x + 8

According to the question,

x + x + 2 + x + 4 + x + 6 + x +
8=170

or 5x + 20 = 170

or x + 4 = 34

or x = 30.

Second largest No. = 30 + 6 = 36

Square of smallest No. = 900

Sum of these Nos. = 900 + 36 =
936

7.(D);

8.(C);

9.(A);I = 25000 ×3/20 = 3750,
r = (3750*100)/75000 = 5%

10.(C); Second selling price = 6500 * 124/100 *80/100 = 6448

Loss => 6500 – 6448 = Rs. 52
