**ANSWERS AND SOLUTIONS :**

1- (d)

Profit earned =(4/7*35)

= Rs.20

Profit earned =(4/7*35)

= Rs.20

2- (a)

ATQ,

(P+Q)-10 = 2*20

P + Q = 50

P + Q + R = 22*3

R = 66 - 50 = 16

Age after 10 years = 16 + 10 = 26 years

ATQ,

(P+Q)-10 = 2*20

P + Q = 50

P + Q + R = 22*3

R = 66 - 50 = 16

Age after 10 years = 16 + 10 = 26 years

3- (c)

4- (b)

5- (b)

New average = 9*11 = 99

New average = 9*11 = 99

8- (d)

9- (c)

The selling price of article = (81*100/(100-90)) = 90

The selling price of article = (81*100/(100-90)) = 90

10-(b)

Cost price of article per dozen = 180/12

= 15

selling price of article per dozen = 16.50

The gain percent = (16.5-15)/15*100 = 10%

Cost price of article per dozen = 180/12
