There were four of us – George, and William Samuel Harris, and myself, and Montmorency. We were sitting in my room, smoking and talking about how bad we were – bad from a medical point of view I mean, of course.
We were all feeling seedy, and we were getting quite nervous about it. Harris said he felt such extraordinary fits of giddiness come over him at times, that he hardly knew what he was doing; and then George said that he had fits of giddiness too, and hardly knew what he was doing. With me, it was my liver that was out of order. I knew it was my liver that was out of order, because I had just been reading a patent liver-pill circular, in which were detailed the various symptoms by which a man could tell when his liver was out of order. I had them all.
It is a most extraordinary thing, but I never read a patent medicine advertisement without being impelled to the conclusion that I am suffering from the particular disease therein dealt with in its most virulent form. The diagnosis seems in every case to correspond exactly with all the sensations that I have ever felt.

A. Rs. 76,375
B. Rs. 34,000
C. Rs. 82,150
D. Rs. 70,000

Answer and Solutions :
11(B)Explanation
For two successive changes of x% and y%, net change =
     {x + y +xy/100}%
  = {-10-20+(-10)(-20)/100}%
  =(-30 + 2) %
  = - 28%

12(A)Explanation
Let the number of students be 100.
Number of students allotted to group A = 40
Number of students allotted to group B = 75% of 60 = 45
Thus, Balance number of students allotted to group C = 100 - 40 - 45 = 5
Number of actual students = 100/15 * 12 = 80

 13(C)Explanation:
Let their marks be (x + 9) and x.
Then, x + 9 = 56/100(x + 9 + x)
 =>25(x + 9) = 14(2x + 9)
 =>3x = 99
 =>x =33
 So, their marks are 42 and 33.

14(D)Explanation :
State A and State B had an equal number of candidates appeared.
In state A, 6% candidates got selected from the total appeared candidates
In state B, 7% candidates got selected from the total appeared candidates
But in State B, 80 more candidates got selected than State A
From these, it is clear that 1% of the total appeared candidates in State B = 80
=> total appeared candidates in State B = 80 x 100 = 8000
=> total appeared candidates in State A = total appeared candidates in State B = 8000

15(A)Explanation :
Price of the car = Rs.3,25,000
Car insured to 85% of its price
=>Insured price=325000×85/100
Insurance company paid 90% of the insurance
Amount paid by Insurance company =Insured price×90/100
=325000×85/100×90/100=325×85×9=Rs.248625
Difference between the price of the car and the amount received
= Rs.325000 - Rs.248625 = Rs.76375
