    Answer: B

    Let 1 man's 1 day's work = x and 1 woman's 1 day's work = y. Then, 4x + 6y =1/8 and 3x + 7y =1/10 Solving the two equations, we get: x =11/400, y =1/400 1 woman's 1 day's work =1/400 10 women's 1 day's work = 1/40 Hence, 10 women will complete the work in 40 days.

    Answer: B

    Let the speeds of the two trains be x m/sec and y m/sec respectively. Then, length of the first train = 27x metres, and length of the second train = 17y metres. 27X+17Y=23 27X+17Y=23X+23Y 4X=6Y X/Y=3/2

30. If selling price is doubled, the profit triples. Find the profit percent.

    Let C.P. be Rs. x and S.P. be Rs. y. Then, 3(y - x) = (2y - x) y = 2x. Profit = Rs. (y - x) = Rs. (2x - x) = Rs. x. Profit % = (x/x) x 100 % = 100%
