(a) 10 or 11

(b) 9 or 10

(c) 8 or 9

(d) 7 or 9

**Answers with Explanation:-**

1. (a):

Length of the rectangle = 112/8 = 14 cm,
so perimeter= 44 cm,

Circumference= 132-44=88 cm,

R = (88 × 7 )/(2 ×22) = 14cm

So area = 616cm

2. (d):

3. (b):

Number = 740 × 35/100 - 34 = 225

2/5 of
the number=90

4. (c):

The largest angle of the quadrilateral (6
×360)/(6+4+3+5) = 120 degrees

Smallest angle of the triangle = 120 × 1/4 =
30 degrees

If second largest angle of the triangle = (x
+ 10)

So 30+ x+ x+10 = 180 , x = 70 degrees

5. (b):

6. (a)

Let the total amount be x. C’s original share
= 3x / 6 = x / 2

C’s new share = 2x / 9 Now

(x / 2) – (2x / 9) = 60 x = 216

7. (d)

prashant marks in A = 83 prashant marks in B
= 75% of 120 = 90

Now

(83 + 90 + x) / 360 * 100 = 80 x = 115

8. (c)

No. of erasers > No of pencils > No of
pens

Possible combinations

Erasers = 11, Pencils = 8, Pens = 7

OR

Erasers = 10, Pencils = 9, Pens = 7
