A. 2500 m2
B. 3000 m2
C. 5000 m2

A. 4 : 1
B. 1 : 4
C. 2 : 1

A. 400 m
B. 40  m
C. 250 m
D. 650 m

1. A Total number of votes polled = (1136 + 7636 + 11628) = 20400.
Required percentage = (11628/20400 x 100)% = 57%.

2. C
Explanation: Let the amount taxable purchases be Euro x.
Then, 6% of x = 30/100
x = (30/100 x 100/6) = 5.
Cost of tax free items = Euro [25 - (5 + 0.30)] = Euro 19.70

3.B
Increase in 10 years = (262500 - 175000) = 87500.
Increase% = (87500/175000 x 100)% = 50%.
Required average = (50/10)% = 5%.

4. B
Average speed = (2×35×45/35+45) km/hr = 39/38 km/hr.

5. C
Speed = (3×58) m/sec = (56) m/sec.
Distance covered in (2×60)seC. = (56×2×60)m=100m
Length of diagonal = 100 m
So, area = 12×(diagonal)2 = (12×100×100)m2 = 5000m2

6. A
Let x km be covered in y hrs. Then,
Ist speed = (xy) km/hr.
2nd speed = (x2÷2y)km/hr =  (x4y) km/hr
Ratio of speed = xy:x4y=1:14=4:1

7.  A
25 : 10 :: 1000 : x or x = 10×100025 = 400 m

8. B
Ratio of times taken = 12:13
12:13 = x : 36  or 12×36:13×x?18=13×x or x = 54 min.
