Answer :
1. 5;
Since he purchases 120 gm and pays Rs. 100 by assuming actual CP of 1gm = Rs. 1)
∴ Profit percentage =
2. 1;
Black shoes Brown shoes


Price

3 : 1

Number of pairs

4 : x

Total

12 : x

Total price in original bill = rs. (12 + x )
In wrong bill = Rs. ( 3x + 4)
Bill increased by 40% = 2/5
⇒ 15x + 20 = 84 + 7x
⇒ 8x = 64
⇒ x = 8 pairs
∴ Total pairs = 8 + 4 = 12 pairs
3. 4;
SI for 10 years on 416 =
Let the principal for CI be Rs, P
4. 2;
Let the speed of boat be x km/hr
According to the question,
⇒ 10 (x+4 + x4) = 4/3 (x²  16)
⇒ 15x = x²  16
⇒ x²  16  15x = 0
⇒ x = 16, 1
∴ So ,the speed of boat in still water = 16km/hr
5. 2;
Let the speed of other train be x km/hr
6. 1;
Part filled by A from 8 am to 11 am
Part filled by B from 9 am to 11 am
Total part filled till 11 am
At 11 am pipe C is opened to empty it
∴ Part of thank emptied in 1 hr
∴ 11/30 part will be emptied in
.e. at 2:40 pm

Let the width of the path be x km
∴ Area of the path
= 38 x 32  (38  2x) (32  2x)
= 1216  1216 + 140x  4x²
= 140x  4x²
∴ 140x  4x² = 600
⇒ 4x²  140x + 600 = 0
⇒ x²  35x+ 150 = 0
⇒ x (x30 )  5 (x30) = 0
⇒ (x5) (x30) =0
∴ x = 5 as x ≠30
