**1. 2;**

From A, B and C, we get

Area of the room = 664

⇒ 2 (20x² + 28x² + 35x²) = 664

⇒ 116x² = 664

∴ x = 2

∴ Cost of painting

= (

*I*h + bh) x 50
= (14 + 8 ) x 10 x 50

= Rs. 11000

**2. 1;**

Let the marked price be Rs. 100

From A, B and C, we get

Cost Price = Rs. 90

By selling the article for Rs. 3120, he gained 4% on the marked price.

∴ Sp is 104, when MP is Rs. 100

SP is 3120, when MP = 100/104 x 3120 = Rs. 3000

∴ Cost price = 3000 x 90/100 = Rs. 2700

So we need all three statements to answer the question.

**3. 3;**

From A, B and C:

Population of the city two years ago = 1,69,0000

Rate of increase = 25% per year

Rate of decrease = 1/25 x 100 = 4% per year

Hence, total growth of population = 25 - 4 = 31%

So, present population = 1690000 (1+21/100)²

= 2474329

Hence, all the statements are necessary.

**4. 5;**

From Statement A; Ratio of efficiency of Aryan to that of Ankush = 2: 1

Ratio of time taken by Aryan to that of Ankush = 1:2

From A, B and C;

If Ankush can complete the work in 32 days.

Then, 4 days work of Ankush

So, the remaining work

After 4 days, Aryan and Ankush both are working together.

Hence 1 day's work of Ankush and Aryan

Number of days required to complete the work

Total number of days

So,all the three statements are required.

**5. 5;**

From A; 2(

*I +*b) = 240 ⇒*I +*b = 120
From B;

*I =*(b + 10) ⇒*I -*b = 10
These are three equations are of length and breadth. We may solve them by making pair of any two.

∴ Any two of the three will give answer.
