1. D;

Ratio of profit Anil, Deepak and Sohan
= 24000 × 12 : 36000 × 7 + 36000 × 2 : 7 × 16000 + 4000
× 5
= 288 : 324 : 132
= 72 : 81 : 33
= 24 : 27 : 11
Deepak’s share of profit = 27/62 * 26164 = Rs. 11,394

2. C;
r1 = 264 * 7/44 = 42cm
r2 = 352 * 7/44 = 56cm
Reqd difference = 22/7[(56)^2 - (4B. ^2]
= 22/7 * 98 * 14 = 4312

3. B; Let the price of sugar before increase be ` x
Consumption = 15 kg
Expenditure on sugar = 15x
After increase
Expenditure on sugar = 120% of 15x = 18x
Price of sugar = 128% of x = 32x/25 per kg
New Consumption = 18x*25/32x = 14 1/16kg

4. Let Radha's savings in National Savings Certificate be x.
Then, according to the question,
x/3 = 1/2(150000 – x)
2x = 450000 – 3x
x = Rs. 90,000
Saving in Public Provided Fund
= 1, 50,000 – 90,000 = Rs. 60,000

5. B;
Let the two-digit number be 10x + y
Numbers obtained by interchanging the digits = 10y + x
According to the question,
10x + y – (10y + x) = 54
9x – 9y = 54  x –y = 6 ... (i)
Again, y = x/3
3y = x
From (i) and (ii)
y = 3 and x = 9
Required number is 93

6. A; Let the present age of Raju and his father be 2x and
5x respectively.
Hence, (2x + D. /(5x + D.  = 5/11
22x + 44 = 25x + 20
3x = 24
x = 8
Father’s age 5 years ago = 5 × 8 – 5 = 35 years

7. E
SP = Rs. 15000
If Manoj offered a discount of 10% then the new SP
= 15000 – 1500 = Rs. 13500
CP = 13500 * 100/108 = 12500

8. D
2M = 3W
1M = 3/2W

1M + 1W = 3/2W + 1W = 5/2W
M1D1 = M2D2
3 * 4 = 5/2 * D2
D2 = 12 * 2/5 = 24/5 days

9.  C
Required number of ways
= (3C1 * 7CB.  + (3C2 * 7CB.  + 3C3
= (3!/2! * 7!/2!5!) + (3!!/2! * 7!/6!) + 1
(3 * 7 * C.  + (3 * 7) + 1
= 63 + 21 + 1 = 85

10. D
Let E = Getting a king of club or queen of heart n(B.  = 2

Required probablity = 2/52 = 1/26
