4. In a school there are 1000 students in the year 1999. The number of students increased by 20% in the year 2000. And it is increased by 15% in the year 2001. But it is decreased by 18% in 2002. Then what is the strength in 2002.

In 2000 students= (1000*120)/100=1200.

In 2001 students= (1200*115)100=1380.

In 2002 students= (1380*82)100=1131.6=1132 (decreased by 18%).

5. The number of students in a school kept changing every year. In the year 1999, the total number of students in the school was 1000.In the year 2000, it is increased by 20%.

B. 1368

C. 1400

D. 1638

Explanation:

In 1999, no. of students = 1000

In 2000, %increase = 20%

=> 1000*120/100 =1200

In 2001, 1200*120/100 = 1440

In 2002, % decrease = 5%

=> 1440*95/100 = 1368.

6. A started business investing Rs. 60,000. Exactly six months later, B joined him investing Rs. 90,000. If they make a profit of Rs. 1,26,000 at the end of the year, how much should be B's share in it?

A. Rs. 72,000

B. Rs. 54,000

C. Rs. 32,000

D. Rs. 63,000

E. None of these

Explanation:

For A, the total investment is 60000 * 12 months = 720000.

Now, for B, total investment = 90000 * 6 months = 540000(i.e. profit)

Finally, ratio of investment is 72/54 i.e. 4/3

Therefore B' share = (3/7) *126000 = 54000.

7. Avg age of X number of adults in a class is 30yrs. If 12 new adults with avg age of 32 joined with them then the avg age increases by one. Find X?

A. 12

B. 10

C. 15

D. 20

Explanation:

Total age of X adults = 30x

total age of 12 new adults = 32*12= 384

Total age of x+12 persons = (x+12) *31 = 30x+384

Hence,

=> 31x+372 = 30x+384

=> x= 12.

8. A water tank can be filled by pipe P alone in 30 mins and by pipe Q alone in 20 mins the same tank can be emptied by pipe R in 25 mins. If all the 3 pipes are opened at the same time, how long will it take to fill the water tank?

B. 22.10 mins

C. 23.08 mins

D. 30.15 mins

Explanation:

Work done by(A+B+C) in 1 hr. = 1/30 + 1/20 - 1/25 = 13/300.

So time required to fill the tank = 300/13 = 23.08.

9. A can do a work in 36 days whereas A and B together can do the same work in 24 days. if B has to do the work alone, how many days will take to complete it?

generally B's one-day work is->A+B one-day Work-A's one-day work

1/24-1/36=3-2/72

=1/72

B's one-day work is 1/72

Second one =120-120x0.2 = 96

Hence, loss by 4%.
