__English__
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
