(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) 3

(d) 4

Answer: (c) 3Let a= 5x, b = 6x, c = 7x $ \frac{a+b+c}{b}=\,\,\frac{5x+6x+7x}{6x}=\frac{18x}{6x}=3$ |

(a) 0.00021

(b) 0.0021

(c) 0.021

(d) 0.21

Answer: (c) 0.021$ \sqrt{0.000441}=\sqrt{\left( 0.021 \right) ^2}=0.021$ |

Q13. If $ \frac{4}{5} $ of an estate be worth Rs. 16800, then the value of of $ \frac{3}{7}$ it is

(a) Rs. 90000

(b) Rs. 9000

(c) Rs. 72000

(d) Rs. 21000

Answer: **(b) Rs. 9000**

Let value of estate = x

$ \frac{4x}{5}=\text{16800 }or\,\,x=\text{21000; }\frac{3}{7}of\,\,its=\frac{21000\times 3}{7}=9000$

Q14. If a number x is 10% less than another number y and y is 10% more than 125, then x is equal to

(a) 150

(b) 143

(c) 140.55

(d) 123.75

Answer: (d) 123.75$ x=\,\,\frac{125\times \left( 100+10 \right)}{100}\times \frac{\left( 100-10 \right)}{100}=123.75$ |

Q15. A man with of his usual speed reaches the destination hr late. Find his usual time to reach the destination.

(a) 4 hr

(b) 3 hr

(c) $ 3\frac{3}{4} $ hr

(d) 4 hr

Answer: (c) $ 3\frac{3}{4}hr $Usual time(t) = $ \frac{late}{\frac{1}{present\,\,speed}-1}=\frac{\frac{5}{2}}{\frac{5}{3}-1}=3.75=3\frac{3}{4}hr$ |
