times as old as his son. Find their present age ?
(a) 10, 40
(b) 5, 50
(c) 3, 30
(d) None of these
Ans. Let father, age = x & son's age = y
as per the problem x = 7y ….(i) & after 5 year
F.A = (Present ag(e) + 5 = (x + 5) + 5 = x + 10
S.A = (Present ag(e) + 5 = (y + 5) = y + 10
as per the question x + 10 = 3 (y + 10) (i)
= x – 3y = 20 (ii)
from equation (i) and (ii) on solving
x = 40 & y = 10.

IF x + y = 12, the maximum value of the product of xy is
(a) 26 (b) 36

A man buys mangoes paying one variety Rs. 320 to 240 & another variety of 640 to 400. He
mixes & sells them at16 mangoes for Rs. 30. Find the percentage of profit?
C.P of 240 mangoes = Rs. 320
C.P of 640 mangoes = Rs. 640
C.P of 640 mangoes = Rs. 960
(on variety)

S.P pf 640 mangoes = − = × / 1200 640
16
30
Profit = 1200 – 960 = 240
So percentage of profit = V 25 100
960
240 =

Two taps A & B take 20 minutes & 30 minutes to fill a cistern independently. The cistern can

closed, calculate the time taken by the discharging outlet to empty the full cistern.
(a) 10 minutes
(b) 15 minutes
(c) 20 minutes
(d) None of these
Ans. Let the volume of cistern = V
Volume of water filled by tap A in 1 minute =
Volume of water filled by tap B in 1 minute =
Taps (A + (B) together can fill in 1minute =
When the discharging outlet is open these taps can fill water in one minute =
The outlined empties the cistern in 1 minute =
So the time taken by the outlet to discharging the whole water volume v is =

The price of sugar has decreased by 20%, by what% are the consumption of the sugar be
increased in a house so that there is no decrease in the expenditure on the sugar
Ans. Let the sugar consumption was x kg
