Question 5 of 50
5. Question
An automobile financier claims to be lending money at S.I., but he includes the interest every six months for calculating the principal. If he is charging an interest of 10%, the effective rate of interest becomes?
Correct
Let the sum be Rs. 100. Then,
S.I. for first 6 months = (100 * 10 *1) / (100 * 2) = Rs. 5
S.I. for last 6 months = (105 * 10 * 1) / (100 * 2) = Rs. 5.25
So, amount at the end of 1 year = (100 + 5 + 5.25) = Rs. 110.25
Effective rate = (110.25 – 100) = 10.25%.Incorrect
Let the sum be Rs. 100. Then,
S.I. for first 6 months = (100 * 10 *1) / (100 * 2) = Rs. 5

Question 35 of 50
35. Question
In a race of 1000 m, A can beat by 100 m, in a race of 800m, B can beat C by 100m. By how many meters will A beat C in a race of 600 m?
Correct
When A runs 1000 m, B runs 900 m and when B runs 800 m, C runs 700 m.
When B runs 900 m, distance that C runs = (900 * 700)/800 = 6300/8 = 787.5 m.
In a race of 1000 m, A beats C by (1000 – 787.5) = 212.5 m to C.
In a race of 600 m, the number of meters by which A beats C = (600 * 212.5)/1000 = 127.5 m.Incorrect
When A runs 1000 m, B runs 900 m and when B runs 800 m, C runs 700 m.
When B runs 900 m, distance that C runs = (900 * 700)/800 = 6300/8 = 787.5 m.
In a race of 1000 m, A beats C by (1000 – 787.5) = 212.5 m to C.
In a race of 600 m, the number of meters by which A beats C = (600 * 212.5)/1000 = 127.5 m.

36. Question
In a twodigit 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:
Correct
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.Incorrect
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.

40. Question
A man gains 20% by selling an article for a certain price. If the sells it at double the price, the percentage of profit will be:
Correct
Let C.P. = Rs. x.
Then, S.P. = Rs. (12% of x) = Rs. 6x/5
New S.P. = 2 * 6x/5 = Rs. 12x/5
Profit = 12x/5 – x = Rs. 7x/5
Profit = 7x/5 * 1/x * 100 = 140%.Incorrect

Question 45 of 50
45. Question
In a 1000 m race, A beats B by 50 m and B beats C by 100 m. In the same race, by how many meters does A beat C?
Correct
By the time A covers 1000 m, B covers (1000 – 50) = 950 m.
By the time B covers 1000 m, C covers (1000 – 100) = 900 m.
So, the ratio of speeds of A and C =
1000/950 * 1000/900 = 1000/855 So, by the time A covers 1000 m, C covers 855 m.
So in 1000 m race A beats C by 1000 – 855 = 145 m.Incorrect
By the time A covers 1000 m, B covers (1000 – 50) = 950 m.
By the time B covers 1000 m, C covers (1000 – 100) = 900 m.
So, the ratio of speeds of A and C =
1000/950 * 1000/900 = 1000/855 So, by the time A covers 1000 m, C covers 855 m.
So in 1000 m race A beats C by 1000 – 855 = 145 m.

Question 49 of 50
49. Question
A shopkeeper sells 20% of his stock at 10% profit ans sells the remaining at a loss of 5%. He incurred an overall loss of Rs. 400. Find the total worth of the stock?
Correct
Let the total worth of the stock be Rs. x.
The SP of 20% of the stock = 1/5 * x * 1.1 = 11x/50
The SP of 80% of the stock = 4/5 * x * 0.95 = 19x/25 = 38x/50
Total SP = 11x/50 + 38x/50 = 49x/50
Overall loss = x – 49x/50 = x/50
x/50 = 400 => x = 20000Incorrect
