Which of the following should be placed in the blank spaces of the expression Quantity I__ Quantity II___Quantity III from left to right with respect to the above statements?

Correct Ans:<, >
Explanation:
Quantity I_<_ Quantity II_>__Quantity III

Quantity I:

-----> Number of ways = (6C2 * 6C2) + (6C3 * 6C1) + (6C4)

-----> = [(6 *5 /1 * 2) * (6 * 5/1(1 * 2)]+ [(6 * 5 * 4/1 * 2 * 3) * 6] + (6 * 5/1 * 2)

-----> = (15 * 15) + (20 * 6) + 15

-----> = 225 + 120 + 15

-----> = 360

Quantity II:

-----> C’s one day work = (3/16) – (7/48)

-----> = ((9 – 7)/48)

-----> = (2/48)

-----> = (1/24)

-----> (A + B)’s one day work: C’s one day work = ((7/48) : (1/24))

-----> = (7: 2)

-----> C’s share = (2/9) of total wage = 200

-----> Total wage = (200/2) * 9 = Rs.900

Quantity III:

-----> Let the marked price be Rs. x

-----> Discount = 15% of Rs. x

-----> C.P. = (x – 15% of x) = Rs. (17x / 20)

-----> Then 15% of (17x / 20) = 1955 – (17x / 20)

-----> (51x/400) + (17x/20) = 1955

-----> x = 2000

-----> Discount received by retailer = (15% of 2000) = Rs.300.

-----> Required time = (72/14.4) = 5 hrs

Quantity III:

-----> A + B + C = 8hrs

-----> A + C = 12hrs

-----> LCM of (8,12) = 24

-----> Number of units of water filled by A, B and C together = (24/8) = 3 units

-----> Number of units of water filled by A and C together = (24/12) = 2 units

-----> (i.e.) Number of units of water filled by B = 3 – 2 = 1 units

-----> Number of units of water filled by C in one hour = x units

-----> Number of units of water filled by A in one hour = 33(1/3)% of x = (x/3)

-----> A + C = 2 units

-----> x + (x/3) = 2

-----> x = 1.5 units

-----> Water filled by B and C together = 1 + 1.5 = 2.5 units

-----> Time = (24/2.5) = 9.6 hrs

Which of the following should be placed in the blank spaces of the expression Quantity I__ Quantity II___Quantity III from left to right with respect to the above statements?

Correct Ans:>, <
Explanation:
Quantity I_>_ Quantity II_<__Quantity III

Quantity I:

----> Let CP = 100

----> Then MP = 150

----> Now SP = (90/100) * 150

----> = 135

----> Thus profit percentage = 35%

----> Hence required amount = 100 * 40 * (35/100)

----> = Rs.1400

Quantity II:

----> Let us take marked price of an article be Rs. X

----> According to the question,

----> x * (90/100) * (120/100) * (80/100) = 864

----> x = 864 * (100/90) * (100/120) * (100/80)

----> x = Rs. 1000

Quantity III:

----> Profit ratio of A and B = (4x * 3+ 4x * (1/4) * 9): (5x * 12)

----> = (12x + 9x): 60x

----> = 21x: 60x

----> = (7: 200)

----> Let us take the total profit be x

----> A’s share in the total profit = 3500

----> x * (7/27) = 3500

----> x = 500 * 27 = Rs.13500

Explanation:
Quantity I_<_ Quantity II_>__Quantity III

Quantity I:

----> According to the question,

----> One day work of Nithya and Priya together = (1/15) + (1/18)

----> = (11/900

----> Thus number of days taken by Kalai to complete the work = (90/11) * (11/5)

----> = 18 days

Quantity II:

----> Efficiency ratio of A and B = (600: 500) = (6: 5)

----> Time ratio of A and B = (5: 6) = (5x : 6x)

----> According to the question,

----> (1/5) x + (1/6) x = (11/120)

----> (11/30) x = (11/120)

----> x = 4

----> Number of days taken by B alone = 6 * 4 = 24 days

Quantity III:

----> (P+ Q)’s one day work = (3/20)

----> (Q+R)’s one day work = (1/6)

----> (R+S)’s one day work = (1/10)

----> R’s one day work = (1/10) – (1/30) = ((3 – 1)/30) = (2/30) = (1/15)

----> Q’s one day work = (1/6) – (1/15) = ((5 – 2)/30) = (3/30) = (1/10)

----> P’s one day work = (3/20) – (1/10) = ((3 – 2)/20) = (1/20)
