Ans 1.

→ Total money earned =120-20  =Rs.100 crore
→ BURA surplus =4% of total money earned
Hence (b)Rs. 4 crore

Ans 2

→ Desired value =50% of 19% of total money earned.
=50/100 * 19/100 * 100 crore
Hence (c) Rs. 9.5 crore

Ans 3

→ Sales tax =Rs.40 crore
→ Spending on police =11/100 * 120=13.2 crore
→ Desired percentage =26.8/40 *100%
→ Hence, (c) 67% is the right answer

Ans 4

→ Total money earned =Rs.100 crore
→ Total collection of sales tax =40/80 * 100  =Rs. 50 crore
→ Total collection of property tax =10/20 * 100  =Rs.50 crore
→ Total collection of excise tax =4/7 * 100  =Rs.57 crore (approx.)
→ Hence (b) is the right answer

Ans 5

→ Interest on old loan due next year =2% of Rs.120 crore =Rs.2.4 crore interest on new loan due next year =10% of 20 crores=2 crores .
→ Total interest due next year , on debts =2.4 + 2 =Rs.4.4 crores.
Hence, (c) is the right answer

Ans 6

From the data given,Babba is the shortest and is standing at the end.From statement I: Abba and → Dabba have 2 different letters in their names,Dabba and Ebba have 3 different letters in their names.Hence, only Chabba can be first position and is the tallest.
→ Thus ,statement I alone can answer the question .From statement II: Chabba has 4 different letters in his name ,hence he is taller than Ebba and standing before Ebba .But ,this information is not sufficient to answer the question, Hence ,[1].

Ans 7

→ From statement I: Number of yellow triangular beads =1.2 * 0.1* 0.3*(total beads) .But from this we cannot find the number of triangular beads.
→ Thus statement I alone is insufficient to answer the question .
→ Statement II alone is also insufficient to answer the question.
→ Combining both the statement I & II: number of triangular beads =0.7 * 4000=2800 and the number of beads of yellow triangular beads =1.2*0.1*0.3*4000=144.i.e.,the question can be answered using both the statement. Hence ,[4].

Ans 8

→ From statement I:There are 350 people in the club .Number of people speaking both Urdu and → Bengali =216 .But we do not know how many people can speak only Bengali.
→  Therefore,statement I is not sufficient to answer the question .statement II:72 people speak only → Bengali.But the total number of people in the club is not known ,nor is the number of people speaking both the languages known.
→ From statement II is not sufficient to answer the question.combining both the statement :the number of people speaking only Urdu =350-216-72=62. Hence ,[4].

Ans 9

Let A be the event that a cube is transferre from the first box to the second and let B be the event that a cube is selected from the second box.
→ P(B)=P(A B) (A’ B ) where (A B) and (A’ B ) are mutually exclusive .
→ Therefore,P(B)=P(A ∩ B) + P(A’ ∩ B ) .
→ P(A)=8/14=4/7. P(B/A)=7/19
→ Therefore,P(A ∩ B)=P(A).P(B/A)=4/7 * 7/19 =4/19
→ Similarily P(A’ B ) =P(A’) * P(B/A’)
→ P(A’)=6/14 =3/7 P(B/A’)=6/19
→ Therefore , P(A’ B ) =3/7 * 6/19=18/133
→ Required probability =4/19 +18/133=46/133.Hence ,[d].

Ans 10

→ Suppose there are 100 flowers.
→ Number of roses = 40 and the number of carnations =60 .
→ 25% of 40 =10 roses are red and 10% of 60 =6 carnations are red.
→ Let A be the event that the flower is red and B be the event that the flower is a rose.
→ Therefore (A ∩ B ) is the event that the flower is a red rose.
→ n(A)=16 ; P(A)=16/100
→ n(A ∩ B)=10; P(A ∩ B)=10/100
→ P(B/A ) =probability that the selected flower is a rose given that the flower is red in colour .
→ P(B/A )=P(A∩B)/P(A) =(10/100)/(16/100)=10/16=5/8. Hence ,[b].
