5. 1

6. 1; 
The cost price of 23 bracelets = 23 × 160 = 3680
The selling price of 23 bracelets
= 3680 + (3680 x 15)/100 = 3680 + 552 = 4232

 The selling price of 1 bracelet =4232/23 = 184

7. 1; 
Let Kajal’s monthly expenditure on grocery, clothes and
education be 4x, 2x and 5x respectively.
Then, 2x = 5540
x = 2770/2 =5540

Hence, total monthly expenditure on grocery, clothes and
education = 4x + 2x + 5x = 11x = 11 × 2770 = 30470
55 percentage = 30470
100 percentage = (30470/55)*100 =55400

8. 5; 
Let the first number be x and the second y.

Then, 
(35*x)/100 = (2*75*y)/100

==> x/y= 30 : 7


9. 4; 
Let the length be 7x and the breadth 2x.
Then, area of the rectangular field = 7x × 2x = 14x^2
Now, 14x^2 = 3584
x  = 16
Hence length = 16 × 7 = 112 metres
Breadth = 2 × 16 = 32 metres
Perimeter of the rectangle = 2(l + b) = 2(112 + 32)
= 2 × 144 = 288 metres


10. 1; 
The number of boys in school at present = (80*610)*100= 488
Number of girls in school at present = (488*175)/100 = 854
