A) 25 years B) 26 years
C) 20 years D) can't be determined

Answer:   B) 26 years



Explanation:

Since we know that the difference b/w the age of any two persons remains always constant, while the ratio of their ages gets changed as the time changes.

so, if the age of his child be x (presently)

Then the age of  wife be x + 26 (presently)

Thus the total age = x + ( x + 26) = 32  [\inline \because 252-220 =32]

\inline \Rightarrow x = 3

\inline \therefore The age of her child is 3 years and her self  is 29 years. Hence her age at the time of the birth of her child was 26 years.

Q:

In a mens hostel, there were 95 students. To accommodate 30 more students the average is decreased by rupees 5. But total expenditure increased by Rs.500. Find the total expenditure of the hostel now ?

A) Rs. 4680 B) Rs. 4420
C) Rs. 4960 D) Rs. 5480
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 4680

Explanation:

Let the expenditure on the 95 students be 'x'

Then,

95x + 500 = 120(x – 5)
95x + 500 = 120x - 600
120x - 95x = 1100
25x = 1100
=> x = 44

Therefore, total expenditure of the hostel becomes
95 x 44 + 500 = 4680.

Q:

There are 100 students in 3 sections A, B and C of a class. The average marks of all the three sections was 84. The average of B and C was 87.5 and the average marks of students in A section was :

A) 20 B) 35
C) 54 D) 40
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 20

Explanation:

Numbers of students in section A = x
∴ Numbers of students in section B and C = (100 – x)
∴ x 70 + (100 – x) 87.5 = 84 100
=> 70x + 87.5 100 – 87.5x = 8400
=> 8750 – 17.5x = 8400
=> 17.5x = 8750 – 8400 => x = 20.
