A.7 B.8 C.9 D.10

Answer: D

Explanation:

Let C's age be x years. Then, B's age = 2x years. A's age = (2x + 2) years. =>(2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27 =5x = 25 =x = 5. Hence, B's age = 2x = 10 years.

**2. In a certain store, the profit is 320% of the cost. If the cost increases by 25% but the selling price remains constant, approximately what percentage of the selling price is the profit?**

A.30% B.70% C.100% D.250%

Answer: B

Explanation:

Let C.P.= Rs. 100. Then, Profit = Rs. 320, S.P. = Rs. 420. New C.P. = 125% of Rs. 100 = Rs. 125 New S.P. = Rs. 420. Profit = Rs. (420 - 125) = Rs. 295. Required percentage = (295/ 420 x 100)%= 1475/21 % = 70%

A.1:2 B.3:4 C.3:5 D.None of these

Answer: D

Explanation:

Let the ratio be k:1. Then k*16.4+1*15.4 + (k+1)*15.8 (16.4-15.8)k = 15.8 - 15.4 k=0.4/0.6 = 2/3 So required ratio = 2:3

A.1:1 B.2:3 C.1:2 D.3:2

Answer: D

Explanation:

Let 1gm of gold be mixed with x gm of copper to give (1+x)gm of the alloy. 1G=19W,

1C = 9W and alloy = 15W 1gm gold + xgm Copper = (1+x)gm alloy 19W+9Wx = (1+x)*15W x = 4W/6W = 2/3 So ratio of gold and copper is 1:2/3 or 3:2
