SOLUTION

1.(b)

Total student =45

Let no of boys be x then girls will be 45-x.

As given x = 45-x +5.

Then x = 25.

Let total weight of boys and girls be A and B respectively.

Then A/25 + 5 = B/20, also A = 100 + B.

On solving we get A+ B =1900 dividing by 45 we get 51.1 as answer.

2.(b)

Total height of 10 people is 1600 cm (10*160)

When people = 8, total height is 1272 cm (8*159)

Average of remaining two is (1600-1272)/ 2 = 164 cm.

3.(e)

Female are 3 and male are 5

Total age of male – total age of female = 5.

No other information is given so data inadequate

4.(e)

a+b+c= (3*59)

Let six new numbers be y then

a+b+c +y= (59 +1/3) * 9

On solving we get difference as 20.17

5.(d)

Let speed of both the train be x and y, then 2xy/(x+y) = 56 km/hr.

If both run in same direction than average speed will be 2xy/(x-y).

Since there is no data for x and y so answer is (d).

6.(e)

Case 1: when boys> girls

Total student =35

Let no of boys be x then girls will be 35-x.

As given x = 35-x +5.

Then x = 20. Let total weight of boys and girls be A and B respectively.

Then A/15 + 5 = B/20, also A = 50 + B.

On solving we get a negative value which is incorrect, so this assumption is wrong.

Case 2: when boys< girls

Total student =35

Let no of girls be x then boys will be 35-x.

As given x = 35-x +5.

Then x = 20. Let total weight of boys and girls be A and B respectively.

Then A/20 – 5 = B/15, also B = 50 + A.

On solving we get average marks as 190/9

1. (a)

The ratio between height and length is 5:7 and also average breath is 4 more than average height. Total height is 60 cm.

Then we get total breath as 19*4=68 then total length will be 300/7.

Then average volume (total L* total B * total H) will be total volume/4. i.e.48857.

8.(c)

Arun +wife = 50

Arun + wife = 56 at the birth of their son.

After 5 years average age =71/3

9.(d)

Let the two set sum be A and B and total numbers in each set be n and m respectively.

A/n –B/m =6

Also m+n =10, B=56

10.(e)

Total score = 1500 runs.

Also total runs in 7 matches/7 = 10 + total runs in last 8 matches/8

Total runs in 8 matches are 480. On solving we get average of 7 matches as 70,

Difference is 10.

11.(a)

Correct equation is

(47*14)- (57*7)-(44*5)-15= 9th match run

12.(d)

(70*40-32)/70 = 39.5

13.(c)

Let original average expenditure be y then

(y-1) – 45y = 60 The y= 8

The original expenditure is 8*45= 360.

14.(e)

Let no. of papers be x Then 65x + 20 +5 = 70x x=5

15.(b)

2*40*50/ (40+50) =400/9

16.(c)

Let the mean score be x. 20*75 + 25* 30 + 55*x =4800 On solving x= 510/11

17.(b)

Let the five numbers be a, b, c, d and e and their average be x.

Then a+b+c+d/4- b+c+d+e/4 =6 and a+b+c+d +e = 5 *y

Also b+c+d = 59. And e=y +2

59 +a+e=5y => 61 + a = 4y

Also a-e =24 => putting e = y+2, a-y = 26

On solving both equation we get y = 29.

18.(a)

Let items in 8 month be x, then 2000+8x= 12000

On solving x=1250

19.(c)

Sum of 5/5 =a, sum of 3/3 =b, sum of remaining 2/2=c.

So a= (3b+2c)/5

20.(c)

Total fees of girls = 125000 in a year.

Total fees of boys (boys=200) will be 150% of 2500 = 3750 *200.

Average fees = (3750*200 +125000)/250= 3500
