 A

Rs. 200.

 B

Rs. 210.

 C

Rs. 190.

 D

Rs. 220.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the calls be for Rs. x. The total bill is x + 5% of x = ${21x}/20 = 210$, which gives x = Rs. 200.


Question 2

Mr. X who spends 62% of his salary is able to save Rs. 342. What is his salary?

 A

Rs. 900.

 B

Rs. 1000.

 C

Rs. 800.

 D

Rs. 1100.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the salary be x. His saving% is 100 - 62 = 38, so 38% of x = 342, which gives x = $342/38$ × 100 = Rs. 900.


Question 3

The sum of two numbers is 1560. One of them is 160% of the other. The smaller number is?

 A

600.

 B

610.

 C

590.

 D

620.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let the numbers be x and ${160x}/100$. The sum is x + ${160x}/100$ which is same as ${260x}/100 = 1560$. Solving we get the smaller number x = 600.


Question 4

The number of online customers increased from 1850 to 3575. What is the percentage increase?

 A

$93{9/37}$ %.

 B

$96{31/36}$ %.

 C

$87{20/39}$ %.

 D

$91{4/13}$ %.

Soln.
Ans: a

The increase is 3575 - 1850 = 1725. The percentage increase is $1725/1850$ × 100 = ${3450/37}$, which is same as: $93{9/37}$.


Question 5

If 85 is m% of p, and B is p% of m, then what is B?

 A

85.

 B

95.

 C

75.

 D

105.

Soln.
Ans: a

Let 85 = A, so A = $m/100$ × p = $p/100$ × m. = B, so A and B are same.
