## Ques 1.

A Person after allowing a trade discount of 105 from the marked price, makes a profit of 17% His marked price is

(a) 27 % above cost price

(b) 7 % above cost price

(c) 30 % above cost Price

(d) 34 % above cost price

**Ans 1.**Le the cost price be Rs 100 ad M.P. be Rs ( 100 + x).

. . ( 100+x) x 90/100 = ( 100 + 17)

=> x + 100 = 117/0.9 = 130

. . x = Rs 30

. . M.P. = 30% above C.P.

## Ques 2.

In a boarding house the number if boarders increases at a certain rate per cent yearly. Four years ago the number was 81; today it is 144. What will be the number of boarders 2 years hence ?

(a) 256

(c) 288

(d) 324

**Ans 2.**

## Ques 3.

A clock strike once at 1 o'clock , twice at 2 o'clock ,thrice at 3 o'clock and so on. What is the total number of strikings in a day ?

(a) 24

(b) 72

(c) 144

(d) 156

**Ans 3.**From 1 to 12, the clock would continue to strike and then start from 1 to12 in the same manner.

. . Sum of the number of strikes the clock makes from 1 to 12 [ i.e. 1 + 2+ 3 + 4 + ........+ 12]

= 12/2 {2 x 1 + 12- 1) 1}

{ Sum of A.P. = n/2[2a + n - 1) 1}

= 6 (13) = 78

. . Required number = 2 x 78 = 156.

## Ques 4.

Find the wrong number in the series given below:

2,11,20,26,32,37,41

(a) 26

(b) 20

(c) 11

(d) 32

**Ans 4.**41 - 37 = 4

37 - 32 = 5

32 - 36 = 6

26- 20 = 6 { It should be 7 ]

Hence, 20 is the wrong number.

## Ques 5.

A wrong number is there in the series given below. find out that number.

(2807, 1400, 697, 347, 171, 84, 41, 20

(a) 84

(b) 171

(c) 347

(d) 697

**Ans 5.**41 = (2) x 2 + 1

84 = (41) x 2 + 2

171 = (84) x 2 + 3

347 = (171) x 2 + 4

Hence, 347 is wrong.

## Ques 6.

What is the area of a circle which has the same circumference as the perimeter of a triangle whose sides are 9,10 and 17 cm ?

(a) 36 cm2

(b) 103 1/11 cm2

(c) 102 cm2

(d) None of these

**Ans 6.**Perimeter of the triangle = 9 + 10 + 17= 36 cm

circumference of circle = 2
