A) 35 : 6
B) 31 : 7
C) 23 : 7
D) 32 : 9
E) None of these

ANS: E

Explanation:

Let two numbers be a and b. Now, 35% of a = 2 times 75% of b. solving we get a : b = 30 : 7 Therefore, the correct answer is option E (none of these).

Q4. Area of a rectangular field is 3584 m2 and the length and the breadth are in the ratio 7 : 2 respectively. What is the perimeter of the rectangle ?

A) 246m
B) 292m
C) 286m
D) 288m
E) None of these

ANS: D

Explanation:

Here, L : B = 7: 2 or L = 7a, B = 2a. So area= 7a × 2a. Given that the area is 3584m2 => 14a2 = 3584 => a = 16. So L = 112 and B = 32. So, Perimeter = 2 (L + B) = 2 × 144 = 288m

Q5. Last year there were 610 boys in a school. The number decreased by 20 percent this year. How many girls are there in the school if the number of girls is 175 percent of the total number of boys in the school this year ?

A) 854
B) 848
C) 798
D) 782
E) None of these

ANS: A

Explanation:

The number of boys this year = 0.8 × 610 = 488. Since the girls are 175% of the boys, So, the number of girls = 175% of 488 = (175 × 488)/100 = 854

D) 950
E) None of these

ANS: C

Explanation:

Aryan scored =350, Vidya scored 296 more than Aryan i.e. 350 + 296 = 646. Also, Vidya scored 76% of maximum marks. So, 76% of maximum marks = 646 => maximum marks = 850

Q7. A student was awarded certain marks in an examination. However, after re-evaluation, his marks were reduced by 40% of the marks that were originally awarded to him so that the new score now became 96. How many marks did the student lose after re-evaluation?

A) 58

C) 63
D) 56
E) 64

ANS: E

Explanation:

Since the student has lost 40% marks, So, he has 60% of the original marks say x. => 0.6 x = 96 => x = 160. Hence, marks lost by him is 160 - 96 = 64.

Q8. Average of five numbers is 61. If the average of first and third number is 69 and the average of second and fourth number is 69, what is the fifth number ?

A) 31
B) 29
