Sir , I guess perhaps solution to qn 1 and 2 are wrong

ReplyDeleteqn1 : if she buys 10 pencils , then the number of pens = 9 and number of copies = 10 , which means number of pencils = number of copies.. but acc to qn, no. of copies must be greater than no. of pencils...

qn 2 : 4c + 2(500+c) = 2500 => 4c + 1000 + 2c = 2500 => 6c = 1500 => c = 250 and hence t = 750.

thus , 3t + 1c = 3(750) + 250 = 2250+250 = 2500

q.2 ans is wrong

ReplyDeletePlease correct ques.1&2 both.

ReplyDeleteu r ryt Prateek...pencils nd copy will be equal in ths case.if dere r only 29 items

ReplyDeletealso.. in qn 10 : the CP n Loss can be any value.. coz if CP = Rs 200 ., then SP = 160 and Loss = 40 and in the qn , there is no relationship between CP and loss is mentioned.., it can be interpreted dat if CP is any value , then SP = (4/5) of CP and Loss = (1/4) of SP.. SO , CP can take any value which imples loss can also be of any value

ReplyDeleteQ3 also 25% loss

ReplyDeleteno.. qn 3 is correct.. coz if he buys 1 dozen at Rs 16 ,

ReplyDeleteCP of 2 dozens = Rs 32

he sells 18 bananas at Rs 16/dozn

18 bananas = 12 + 6 bananas i.e 1.5 dozen

SP of 1.5 dozn = 16 + 8 = Rs 24

Remaining 0.5 dozen sold at Rs 8/ dozn

=> SP of last 0.5 dozn = (1/2) of Rs 8 = Rs 4

Total SP = Rs 24 + Rs 4 = Rs 28

Total CP = Rs 32

Thus Loss = Rs 4

%Loss = (4/32) x 100 = 12.5%

exactly !! der z error in qn 10 also.. in such qns , answer shud b DATA INADEQUATE

ReplyDeletecoz evn if coz if CP = Rs 200 ., then SP = 160 and Loss = 40 and in the qn , there is no relationship between CP and loss is mentioned.., it can be interpreted dat if CP is any value , then SP = (4/5) of CP and Loss = (1/4) of SP.. SO , CP can take any value which imples loss can also be of any value

plz sir provide detailed solution to each

ReplyDeleteanyone can give right solution of q.7

ReplyDeleteacc to qn , total cost of 4 pens and 3 pencils = Rs 31 but u dont know d exact cost of 1 pen and 1 pencil.. so u cant determine the cost of 5 pens and 6 pencils., dats y answer is DATA INADEQUATE..

ReplyDeletehmmm,ryt

ReplyDeleteQ10. Cp 5 loss 1

ReplyDeleteSp=4/5 cp

Cp/sp = 5/4

Cp =5

SP=4

Loss =1/4 of 4 =1
