**1. If each side of a square is increased by 50% the ratio of the area of the resulting square to the area of the given square is**

A. 5:4

B. 9:4

C. 4:5

D. 4:9

**Answer:** Option B**Solution:**

Let original side be x metres, then area = x2 Sq.m

New side =(150% of x)m = (150/100 × x)m =(3x/2)m

New area =(3x/2 x 3x/2)m2 = 9×2/4 m2

Required ratio of area = 9×2/4 : x2 = 9:4

**2. A trader purchased two colour televisions for a total of Rs. 35000. He sold one colour television at 30% profit and the other 40% profit. Find the difference in the cost prices of the two televisions if he made an overall profit of 32%?**

A. Rs. 21000

B. Rs. 17500

C. Rs. 19000

D. Rs. 24500

E. None of these

**Answer:** Option A**Solution:**

Let the cost prices of the colour television sold at 30% profit and 40% profit be Rs. x and Rs. (35000 – x) respectively.

Total selling price of televisions = x + 30/100 x + (35000 – x) + 40/100 (35000 – x)

=> 130/100 x + 140/100 (35000 – x) = 35000 + 32/100 (35000)

x = 28000

35000 – x = 7000

Difference in the cost prices of televisions = Rs. 21000

B. 13 kmph

C. 14 kmph

D. 15 kmph

**Answer:** Option C**Solution:**

The ratio of the times taken is 2:1.

A. 35

B. 37

C. 42

D. 30

**Answer:** Option B

**Solution:**

The number of liters in each can = HCF of 80, 144 and 368 = 16 liters.

Number of cans of Maaza = 80/16 = 5

Number of cans of Pepsi = 144/16 = 9

Number of cans of Sprite = 368/16 = 23

The total number of cans required = 5 + 9 + 23 = 37 cans.

**15. In a two-digit number, if it is known that its unit’s digit exceeds its ten’s digit by 2 and that the product of the given number and the sum of its digits is equal to 144, then the number is:**

A. 24

B. 26

C. 42

D. 46

**Answer: **Option A

**Solution:**

Let the ten’s digit be x. Then, unit’s digit = x + 2. Number = 10x + (x + 2) = 11x + 2

Sum of digits = x + (x + 2) = 2x + 2

(11x + 2)(2x + 2) = 144

2×2 + 26x – 140 = 0

(x – 2)(11x + 35) = 0

x = 2

Hence, required number = 11x + 2 = 24.
