### Answer :

**1.**

Age decreased = 8 x 3 = 24 years

So, the required difference = 24 years

**2.**

By Alligation Method:

∴ Required ratio= 3:2

∴ Quantity sold at 9% profit = 3/3+2 x 65 = 39 kg

**3. 1;**

Annual payment

**4. 3;**

Let the cost price Rs. X

**5. 5;**

Let Anuradha left the work after x days

**6. 2;**

Required time

**7. 4;**

Let the speed of the motor boat in still water be x km/hr.

**8. 5;**

Largest possible tile = HCF of length and breadth of the room = 3.4 m.

Number of tiles required

**9. 1;**

Favourable event, = {(1,3); (2,2); (2,6), (3,1); (3,5), (4,4); (5,3); (6,2); (6,6)} =9

∴ Required probability = 9/36 = 1/4
