1.17
2.33
3.23
4.37
5.None of these
Explanation :
Total students=60
Failed in both=5% of 60=3
Passed in both=20% of 60=12
Passed in reasoning=50% of 60=24
Those passed only in reasoning =24-12=12 students.
Passed only in Quants=60-(12+12+3)=33

2. The maximum marks per paper in  3 subjects in Mathematics , Physics and Chemistry are set in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3 respectively. Giri obtained 40% in Mathematics, 60% in Physics and 35% in Chemistry papers. What is overall percentage marks did he get overall?
1.44%
2.32%
3.50%
4.60%
5.None of these
Explanation :
40*1/100  : 60*2/100 : 35*3/100 = 0.4:1.2:1.05
Overall % =100* [0.4+1.2+1.05]/1+2+3 = 265/6 = 44.16 = 44%

3. In an examination, 50% of the students passed in Science and  75% passed in Social, while 20% students failed in both the subjects. If 270 students passed in both subjects, find the total number of students who appeared in the exam?

passed in science = 50%
passed in social = 75%
20% students failed in both the subjects and 80% passed in at least one subject
No of students passed in both subjects = 50+75−x=80  x=45% 45% of x = 270  x = 270*100/45 = 600
Total number of students =600
