 Answer: (c) 480He pay = 400 + $\frac{400\times 4\times 5}{100}$$\frac{400\times 4\times 5}{100}$ = 480

3. A soap-cake measures 7 cm in length, 5 cm in breadth and 2.5 cm in height. How many soap-cakes can be placed in a cardboard box whose length, breadth and height are, respectively 56 cm, 40 cm and 25 cm?

(a) 64

(b) 640

(c) 6400

(d) 6440

 Answer: (b) 640Volume of  one soap-cake = 7 × 5 × 2.5 = 87.5 ccVolume of cardboard box = 56 × 40 × 25 = 5600 ccsoap-cakes can be placed in a cardboard box= 5600/87.5 = 640

4. $17\frac{1}{16}$ decimal equivalent as

(a) 17.625

(b) 17.6025

(c) 17.0625

(d) 17.0525

 Answer: (c) 17.0625$17\frac{1}{16}=17+\frac{1}{16}=17+0.0625=17.0625$$17\frac{1}{16}=17+\frac{1}{16}=17+0.0625=17.0625$

(a) 12, 28

(b) 8, 12

(c) 18, 27

(d) 10, 15

 Answer: (c) 18, 27Let Numbers are 2x and 3x$\frac{2x+9}{3x+9}=\frac{3}{4}$$\frac{2x+9}{3x+9}=\frac{3}{4}$ or 9x + 27 = 8x + 36 or x = 9Numbers are 18 and 27

6. The average of 4 numbers is 7. If the sum of first three numbers is 20, find the fourth number.

(a) 7

(b) 10

(c) 9

(d) 8

 Answer: (d) 8Sum of 4 numbers = 28sum of first three numbers = 20fourth number = 28 – 20 = 8

7. Rajesh purchased a watch for Rs. 300. He sold it for Rs. 330. Find the profit percent.

(a) 5%

(b) 13%

(c) 14%

(d) 10%

 Answer: (d) 10%Profit percent = $\frac{profit}{CP}\times 100=\frac{30}{300}\times 100=10\%$$\frac{profit}{CP}\times 100=\frac{30}{300}\times 100=10\%$

8. ∠POR and ∠QOR form a linear pair. If a – b =80°, then the value of a and b is respectively

(a) 108°, 72°

(b) 105°, 75°

(c) 95°, 85°

(d) 130°, 50°

 Answer: (d) 130°, 50°a – b =80° from linear pair property a + b = 180°$a=\frac{80+180}{2}=130\,\,and\,\,b\,\,=\frac{180-80}{2}=50$$a=\frac{80+180}{2}=130\,\,and\,\,b\,\,=\frac{180-80}{2}=50$

9. Simplify : $\frac{\left( 48 \right) ^{-2}\times \left( 64 \right) ^{\frac{1}{2}}}{\left( 24 \right) ^{-1}}$

(a) 24

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) 3

(d) 4

 Answer: (c) 3Let a= 5x, b = 6x, c = 7x$\frac{a+b+c}{b}=\,\,\frac{5x+6x+7x}{6x}=\frac{18x}{6x}=3$$\frac{a+b+c}{b}=\,\,\frac{5x+6x+7x}{6x}=\frac{18x}{6x}=3$

12. The value of $\sqrt{0.000441}$ is equal to

(a) 0.00021

(b) 0.0021

(c) 0.021

(d) 0.21

 Answer: (c) 0.021$\sqrt{0.000441}=\sqrt{\left( 0.021 \right) ^2}=0.021$$\sqrt{0.000441}=\sqrt{\left( 0.021 \right) ^2}=0.021$

13. If $\frac{4}{5}$ of an estate be worth Rs. 16800, then the value of of $\frac{3}{7}$ it is

(a) Rs. 90000

(b) Rs. 9000

(c) Rs. 72000

(d) Rs. 21000

Let value of estate = x

$\frac{4x}{5}=\text{16800 }or\,\,x=\text{21000; }\frac{3}{7}of\,\,its=\frac{21000\times 3}{7}=9000$

(a) 150

(b) 143

(c) 140.55

(d) 123.75

 Answer: (d) 123.75$x=\,\,\frac{125\times \left( 100+10 \right)}{100}\times \frac{\left( 100-10 \right)}{100}=123.75$$x=\,\,\frac{125\times \left( 100+10 \right)}{100}\times \frac{\left( 100-10 \right)}{100}=123.75$
