**The perimeter of a rectangle is half the circumference of circle whose area is 3850 cm**^{2}. If the breadth of rectangle is 30 cm, find its area.

A) 685 cm^{2}

B) 710 cm^{2}

C) 732 cm^{2}

D) 750 cm^{2}

E) None of these

**D) 750 cm**^{2}

Explanation:

Shortcut-

ᴨr^{2}= 3850, so r = 35

now perimeter of rect. = (1/2)*2ᴨr = 110

so 2(l+30) = 110, so l = 25

area = 25*30**There are 2 mixtures of milk and water such that mixture P contains 30% water and mixture Q contains 20% water. Equal quantities of both mixtures are taken and put in a bottle. What is the ratio of milk to water in the bottle?**

A) 3 : 5

B) 3 : 1

C) 5 : 2

D) 2 : 7

E) 9 : 2

**B) 3 : 1**

Explanation:

Let x litres taken from both, so milk : water in bottle

70% of x + 80% of x : 30% of x + 20% of x

**The person has expenditure of Rs 6,000 in a month with his salary being Rs 10,000. The next month his salary increases by 10% and expenditure by 20%. What is the % change in the his savings?**

A) 6.2% increase

B) 5.26% decrease

C) 5.02% increase

D) 5% decrease

E) None of these

**D) 5% decrease**

Explanation:

Savings = 10,000 – 6000 = 4000

Income becomes = (110/100)*10,000 = 11,000

Exp. becomes = (120/100)*6,000 = 7,200

So savings now = 11000 – 7200 = 3800

So % decrease in savings = (4000-3800)/4000 * 100 = 5%

**After getting two successive discounts, an article which was marked at Rs 750 was bought for Rs 540. The first discount was 20%. What is the second discount being given?**

A) 30%

B) 17%

C) 25%

D) 10%

E) None of these

**D) 10%**

Explanation:

750*80/100*x/100 = 540

x = 540*100*100/80*750

x = 90 then % = 100-90 = 10%

**30 men who can complete a work in 16 days started the work and after working for 6 days, 10 more men joined. In how many days the remaining work will be completed?**

A) 6

B) 10 2/3

C) 8

D) 7 1/3

E) 7 1/2

**E) 7 1/2**

Explanation:

30 m in 16 days, so (30+10)=40 men in (30*16)/40 = 12 days

So

(1/16)*6 + (1/12)*x = 1

Solve, x = 7.5 days
