**Answers With Explanation :**

14. (D) Let the number be
10x + y

x + y = 12 and x – y = 6
=>x = 9 and y = 3 or, x =3 and y = 9

Hence the no. may be 93 or
39.

15. (C) The amount each
would get = 74336/50

= Rs. 496 (App.)

16. (B) Total amount
invested = 2100 * 23/6 = Rs. 8050

Annual investment =Rs.
8050*12 = 96,600

17. (B) Let the cost of 1
metre of cloth be Rs. x.

(x + 10) * 145 = 12325
=>145x + 1450 = 12325

x = (12325-1450)/145=Rs.75

18. (A) Total no. of candles
= 14 * 7 * 12 = 1176

19. (D)

Ratio of profit P, Q and R =
24000 × 24 : 32000 × 24 : 30000 × 16 = 6 : 8 : 5

Share of R = 5/19 × 91200 =
Rs. 24000
