1. One year ago the ratio between A’s and B’s age was 4 : 3. One year hence the ratio of their ages will be 5 : 4. What is the sum of their present ages in years?
A. 15 yrs
B. 16 yrs
C. 17 yrs
D. None of these
B. 16 yrs
Explanation:
A’s age one year ago was 4x, B’s age one year ago was 3x.
One year hence (or after 2 yrs from 4x and 3x):
(4x + 2)/(3x + 2) = 5/4
x = 2
A’s present age = 4x + 1 = 4*2 + 1 = 9 yrs. B’s present age = 3x + 1 = 3*2 + 1 = 7 yrs.

2. By selling a horse for Rs 450, a tradesman would lose 10%. At what price must he sell it to gain 20%?
A. Rs 600
B. Rs 650
C. Rs 630
D. None of these
A. Rs 600
Explanation:
(100 – 10)% = 90% makes 450
For 1%, it is 450/90 = 5.
So for (100 + 20)% = 120%, S.P. would be 5*120 = 600

Explanation:
S.P of 6 articles – C.P of 6 articles = C.P of 4 articles
S.P of 6 articles = C.P of 10 articles
Profit% = (10 – 6)/6 * 100 = 200/3%

In 30 L solution, milk is 7/10 * 30 = 21 L, then water is 30 – 21 = 9 L.
Let x L of water to be added. Then,
40/100 (30 + x) = 9 + x
x = 5 L

6. 40 men can cut 60 trees in 8 hrs. If 16 men leave the job how many trees will be cut in 12 hrs?

A. 12 days
B. 14 days

A. 40 men
B. 45 men

x*60 = (x + 8)*50
x = 40 men

9. A and B enter into a partnership for a year. A contributes Rs 1500 and B Rs 2000. After 4 months C also enters with Rs 2250. If B withdraws his contribution after 9 months, how much would C get if they share a profit of Rs 1200 at the end of the year?
