Q1. A, B and C started a business by investing Rs. 12,800/-. Rs.16,800/- and Rs. 9,600/- respectively. If after 8 months B received Rs. 13,125/- as his share of profit, what amount did C get as his share of profit?

A) Rs. 7,800/-
B) Rs. 7,150/-
C) Rs. 7,750/-
D) Rs. 8,250/-
E) Rs. 7,500/-

ANS:  E

Explanation:

Here the profit will be distributed in the ratio of their investments

i.e. 12800:16800:9600 → 16:21:12
Let x be the total profit
we know that profit received by B = 13125/-
Therefore, 21 / (16+21+12) * x = 13125
Share received by C = (12 / 49) * 30625 = 7500/-

Q2. 41/2 + (1 ÷ 28/9) - 31/13 = ?

A) 19/26
B) 27/13
C) 111/26
D) 24/13
E) 110/13

ANS:  E.

Explanation:

41/2 + (1 ÷ 28/9) - 31/13
=> 9/2 + 9/26 - 40/13
=> 110/13

Q3. {√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3 = (?)3

A) 7
B) 9
C) 11
D) 13
E) 17

ANS:  C

Explanation:

? = [{√7744 * 112} ÷ (2)3]1⁄3
[(88 * 121) / 8]1⁄3
= (1331)1⁄3 = 11
Hence the answer is option C.

Q4. 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364 = ?

A) 112
B) 154
C) 128
D) 136
E) 118

ANS:  C

Explanation:

Applying BODMAS
? = 456 ÷ 24 * 38 - 958 + 364
= 19 * 38 - 958 + 364
= 722 - 958 + 364
= 1086 - 958
= 128
Hence, the answer is option C.

Q5. (34.5 × 14 × 42) ÷ 2.8 =?

A) 7150
B) 7365
C) 7245
D) 7575
E) 7335

ANS: Choice No. C

Explanation:

? = (34.5 × 14 × 42) ÷ 2.8
= 20286 / 2.8
= 7245
Hence, the answer is option C.

Q6. (36⁄17 ÷ 27⁄34 - 19⁄25) = (?)2

A) 2/5
B) 1/3
C) 4/5
D) 1/5
E) 3/5

ANS:  A.

Explanation:

(?)2 = (36⁄17 ÷ 27⁄34 - 19⁄25)
= [(57/17) / (75/34)] - 34/25
= 4/25
Therefore, ? = 2/5

Q7. -676.76 + 1237.87 + 897.34 - ? = 1294.25

A) 168.6
B) 164.2
C) 156.4
D) 172.2
E) 158.6

ANS: B

Explanation:

Applying BODMAS
? = -676.76 + 1237.87 + 897.34 - 1294.25
= 164.2
Hence, the answer is option B.

Q8. Pure milk costs Rs. 16/- per liter. After adding water the milkman sells the mixture @ Rs. 15/- per liter and thereby makes a profit of 25% in what respective ratio does he mix milk with water?

A) 3 : 1
B) 4 : 3
C) 3 : 2
D) 5 : 3
E) 4 : 1

ANS:  A

Explanation:

If SP of mixture is 15/- per liter and profit is 25%, then
CP of mixture = (100/125) * 15 = 12/- liter
As 16/- is the cost of pure 1000 ml, therefore, for 12/-, the quantity of milk =
(12/16) * 1000 = 750 ml
So for 12/- per liter, the milk is 750 ml, then water will be 250 ml.
Thus, required ratio = 750:250 = 3:1

Q9. What will come in place of question mark (?) in the given question?
36 38.8 42.8 ? 54.4 62

A) 46.2
B) 46.6
C) 48.2
D) 48
E) 49

ANS:  D.

Explanation:

Here the given pattern is as follows:
36      38.8      42.8          ?        54.4      62
+2.8      +4.0       +5.2     +6.4      +7.6
+1.2       +1.2       +1.2     +1.2
So ? = 42.8 + 5.2 = 48

Q10. A merchant bought some goods worth Rs. 6,000/- and sold half of them at 12% profit. At what profit percent should he sell the remaining goods to make an overall profit of 18%?

A) 24%
B) 28%
C) 18%
D) 20%
E) 26%

ANS:  A.

Explanation:

Let CPT = 6000/-
Therefore, cost of half of goods CP1= 3000/-   and of  other half goods = CP2= 3000/-
So, SP1=3000 × 1.12 = 3360/-    and      SPT= 6000 × 1.18 = 7080/-
Thus, SP2= 7080 – 3360 = 3720/-
Profit % = [(3720 - 3000) / (3000)] * 100 = 24%
