2. The percentage profit earned by selling an article for Rs.1920 is equal to the percentage loss incurred by selling the same article for Rs.1280.
Quantity 1: Selling price of the article with 10% discount and 10% profit
Quantity 2: Selling price of the article with 20% profit
1.Quantity 1 >Quantity 2
2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
3.Quantity 1 ≤Quantity 2
4.Quantity 1 ≥Quantity 2
5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Answer – 2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
Explanation :
Let CP is x.
Then   (1920-x)/x*100= (x-1280)/x*100
On solving x=1600
Q1:1600*90*110/100*100 = 1584
Q2: Selling Price = 1600*120/100= Rs. 1920

3. A started a business investing Rs. 45000 . After 3 months B joined with a capital of Rs. 60000 and and A left after 3 months and B left after another 3 months. After another 6 months, C joined them with a capital of Rs. 90000 and A invested Rs.15,000. At the end of the year, they made a profit of Rs. 16500.
Quantity 1: Sum of A’s share and A’s initial amount

Quantity 2: Sum of B’s share and C’s investment amount
1.Quantity 1 >Quantity 2
2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
3.Quantity 1 ≤Quantity 2
4.Quantity 1 ≥Quantity 2
5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Answer – 2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
Explanation :
A:B:C = 45000*6+15000*3:60000*6:90000*3
45*6+15*3 : 60*6 : 90*3 = 315:360:270
63:72:54 => 21:24:18: 7:8:6
Q1:16500*7/21 = 5500+45000 = 50,500
Q2: 16500*8/21 = 6285+60,000 = 66, 285

4. Ages of A and B are in the ratio 1 : 2 and that of B and C are in the ratio of 3 : 4. Also 2 years hence the average of their ages was 14 years.
Quantity 1: Present Age of C
Quantity 2: Age of B after 4 years
1.Quantity 1 >Quantity 2
2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
3.Quantity 1 ≤Quantity 2
4.Quantity 1 ≥Quantity 2
5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Answer – 5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Explanation :
A/B = 1/2, B/C = 3/4
A : B : C = 3 : 6 : 8
Their total ages 3x+6x+8x = 17x
2 yrs hence, sum of their ages = 17x +(2+2+2) = 17x + 8
So (17x+6)/3 = 14
17x+6 = 42
X = 2.1 = 2
A:B:C => 6:12:16

5. The average marks of M, N and O are 428. The total marks of N and O is 854 and sum of marks of O and M is 914.
Quantity 1: The marks of M
Quantity 2: The marks of O
1.Quantity 1 >Quantity 2
2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
3.Quantity 1 ≤Quantity 2
4.Quantity 1 ≥Quantity 2
5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Answer – 2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
Explanation :
Total M+N+O=> 1284
N+O = 854
M = 1284 – 854 = 430
N = 1284-914= 370
O = 854-370 = 484

6. Two pipes P and Q can fill the tank in 4 and 2 mins respectively.Both the pipes are opened simultaneously. The bucket is filed in 1 mins

Answer – 1.Quantity 1 >Quantity 2
Explanation :
If B
1/4 +x/2 = 1
1+2x=4
X = 3/2 min = 1.5
If A
x/4+ 1/2 = 1
x+2 =4
x = 2 min

3.Quantity 1 ≤Quantity 2
4.Quantity 1 ≥Quantity 2
5.Quantity 1 =Quantity 2 or No relation can be established
Answer – 2.Quantity 1 <Quantity 2
Explanation :
R = 100 * √d/P
Q1 = 100 * √5/2000 = 1.58 %
Q2= 100 * √7/17000 = 2.029 %
