**11.(a) Here volume of water emptied by the second pipe will be 4 times to that of first Hence, Time take will be 1/4 of the first pipe. When both the pipes are open the part of the tank emptied in 1 minute= 1/8 Hence the tank will be emptied in 8 minutes.**

12.(d) (A+B+C) one day’s work =1/10+ 1/15+1/12= 1/4

Hence together they complete the work in 4 days

13.(a) MP of 30 = SP 40

MP/SP = 40/30

Discount = (10/40)*100= 25%

14.(a) Area =base X height =6.5X10 = 65cm2

Let the diagonal of rhombus be d1 and d2.

Area = 1/2 d1d2 = 65

= 1/2X 26X d2 = 65

d2 = 5

15.(b) Let the age of younger one be x and other x+5

15.(b) Let the age of younger one be x and other x+5

**so, x+(x+5) = 35**

**x= 15**
