  of  girls    in  the  school  is 

A 450       b  250       c  150    d  350

Let  the number  of  Girls  be  X  ,   Then  number  of  boys  = (600-x)
(11 4/3 * 600 )  =  11 x  12 (600-x)   
X=7200-7050      =150          Answer  c  150

          A  3500/-           b  3800/-           c 3600/-          d  3400/-

Let cost price (C.P.) = 100.     Profit = 30 %.     Selling price (S.P.) =  (100 + 30)   = 130.

If selling price (S.P.) is  130, then cost price (C.P.) is  100.

If selling price (S.P.) is  1, then cost price (C.P.) is $ (

If selling price (S.P.) is  4550, then cost price (C.P.) is  (
100 /130 × 4550)= 3500   Answer   A 3500/-
5         Rahim  sales  a  cow  at a  loss  of  15 %  . if  he  has  sold  it  for  Rs  150 more  than  he  would  have  made  a  profit  of  10 % .  Cost  price  of  the  cow  was

           A  660           b  600     c  575     d  None of these 

Let  cost price   be P,    Sold price =85 % of P,     85/100*P+150=110/100*P

25/100*P =150          25P=15000       P=15000/25= 600      Anser   600

              A 843        b  847       c  800       d  None of these 

Let  the  no  of  parrots    is  assumed  as  X
Total  number  of  animals  =  858 
Total  tigers  = 858-x        Total  legs  =  2x=4(858-x)=1746
=2x+3432-4x=1746       2x=3432-1746=1686      X=1686/2=843      Answer  a    843
7      LCM of  36 , 45,52, 108 and  236 is  a

                    A 414180              b  480414            c  441180              d  none  of  these

36 = 2*2*3*3*      45 = 3*3*5      52 = 2*2*13     108 = 2*2*3*3*3*      236 = 2*2*59

Therefore, L.C.M of 36, 45, 52, 108, 236 = 2*2*3*3*3*5*13*59 = 414180
      Answer    a  414180
8        Salaries  of Akash , Babloo  and  chintu  are  in  the  ratio  of  2:3:5  .  If  their  salaries  were 
 increased  by  15 %  , 10  %  and  20  %   respectively What  will  be the  new  ratio of  their  salaries ?

              A 3:3:10      B  23:33:60          C  20:22:40           D  None  of these 

Let   Akash  =  2  Babloo  = 3  and  Chintu  =  5 

Then  100/115=2  =  23/10 
            100/110=3  = 33/10
            120/100=5=  6
Then  new  ratio  is   23/10 :33/10: 6  =  23:33:60      Answer   b  23:33:60
9      A  man  earns   Rs  20 on  the  first  day  and  spends   Rs  15  on  the  next  day  . 
He  again  earns   rs  20  on  the  third  day  and  spends  rs  15  on  the  fourth  day  .  if  he  continues  to  save  like  how  soon   will  have  Rs  60  in  hand 
            A  on  30  the  day           b  On  40th Day                 c  On  27th Day                  D  On  17th day 

Explanation: Money earned in 2 days = Rs.(20 - 15)     =  Rs. 15.
Money earned in 16 days = Rs.(5/2 x 16)     ‹=›Rs. 40.
On 17th day, money in hand = Rs.(40 + 20 )     = Rs. 60.      Answer  d   17th  Day 
10    Ajay can  do  a  piece  of  work  in  25  days  and  Sanjay  can  finish  it  in  20  days  .  They  work together   for  5  days  and  Ajay  goes  away .  how  many  days  will  Sanjay  finish  the  remaining  work

A  11  days               b  12 days              c  14  days            d  None of  these
1 days work of Ajay =1/25
                        Sanjay   = 1/20
So  (Ajay+Sanjay)= 1/25+1/20=9/100
5 days work of Ajaya and Sajay=45/100
Remaining work = 1-45/100=55/100
Sajay can do 55/100 work in  55/100/1/20    =  11 Days

Answer   a  11 Days 

11          The  decimal representation  of a   rational  number  is

Answer b 

12         A  hemispherical  bowl  of  internal  radius   9  cm  contains  a  liquid ,  The  liquid is  to  be  filled  into  cylindrical  shaped  small  bottles  of  diameter  3  cm  and  height   4  cm  .  How  many  bottles  will  be  needed  to  empty  the  bowl

A  45        b  54          c  35         d  48

Radius of hemisphere= 9 cm
volume of hemisphere= 2/3 π r3 
= 2/3 x9x9x9 π    = 486 π 
radius of cylindrical shaped bottles= 3/2 cm
height= 4 cm,     volume of bottles= π r2h
= 3/2x 3/2 x 4 π     =9 π  now,
Reaquired no. of bottles= volume of hemisphere/ volume of bottles
. =486 π/9π   . =54
Hence, no. of bottles required to empty the bowl = 54    Answer   b  54 
13          If  the  numerator  of  a  fraction  is  increased  by  200 %   and  the  denominator
  is  increased  by  300 %   the  resultant  fraction  is  6/11 .  What  was  the original  fraction . 

A  5/11              b  7/11 .          c  8/13            d  8/11 

If  numerator  increase  200 %   then    Numerator will be x+2x =3x

and denominator increased by 300% means denominator will be y = 3y =4y

new fraction will be 3x/4y =6/66 (g
3x/4y = 6/11
dividing numerator by 3 and denominator by 4 both side we will get
x/y =6/3/11/4
x/y =24/33
x/y =8/11     Answer  d  8/11 
14     If  the  ratio  of areas  of  two  squares  is  9:1  the  ratio  of perimeter  is
