__Solution__**Q1. Ans.-(c)**

Hints: x-30x/100=49

**Q2. Ans.-(c)**

Let O have Rs. x

Money with N = 3/2 x

And money with M = 3x

Hints: 3x + 3/2x +x = 3 * 110.

**Q3. Ans.-(d)**

**Hints: (x + y +xy/100)**

Here x= - 20%, y= -10%.

**Q4. Ans.-(b)**

Old saving=100-70=30

New income=100 * 125/100 = 125

New expenditure = 70 * 120/100 = 84

New savings = 125-84 = 41

New savings per cent = (41 * 100)/124 = 32.8%.

**Q5. Ans.-(d)**

**Q6. Ans.-(b)**

Article cost = 260.

Selling price after discount = 380 – (380 * 30)/100 = 266.

Per cent of gain = (266-260)/260 * 100

= 30/13 %.

**Q7. Ans.-(a)**

Hints: Let totals income = 10x + 6x = 16x.

New income = 16x * 112/100 = 17.92

New expenditure = 10x * 120/100 = 5.92

Expenditure increase per cent = (6-5.92)/6 * 100 = 13.34 (approx)

**Q8. Ans.-(a)**

**Hints: percentage of reduction in consumption = (a/ (100+a)) * 100.**

Here a = % of increase price. = (2.4*100)/6 = 40%.

**Q9. Ans.-(d)**

Hints: (a/(100-a)) * 100.

Where a= % of less income.

**Q10. Ans.-(a)**

**Q11. Ans.-(c)**

**Hints: Quantity of added sugar = a [(y-x)/ (100-y)]**

Where a = total solution (60 gm)

X = old per cent of sugar.

Y= new percent of sugar.

**Q12. Ans.-(a)**

**Hints: [100-(a + b - c)] %**

**Q13. Ans.-(d)**

**Q14. Ans.-(c)**

Let the number of entire voters = x.

According to this question the relation

(x * 65)/100 = (x * 35)/10 + 15000

**Q15. Ans.-(d)**

Here difference between new and old tax (b) = 4%.

A = 24000.

New price = A [(100+b)/100] = 24960

Extra amount paid = 24960-24000 = 960.
