Q:

Navaneet has thrice the money Poonam has and Poonam has 25% more money than Hebah. If the average money of the three is Rs. 350, What is the amount that Navaneet has ?

A) Rs. 175 B) Rs. 220.75
C) Rs. 218.55 D) Rs. 656.25
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 656.25

Explanation:

Assume Hebah has Rs. M

Since 25% more money at Poonam

=> Money at Poonam = M + (25% of M)

=> Money at Poonam = M + 0.25M = Rs. 1.25M

Money with Navaneet is thrice the money with Poonam,

=> Money at Navaneet = 3(1.25M) = Rs. 3.75M

Now, sum of all Money = (M + 1.25M + 3.75M) = Rs. 6M

But given the average of the money is Rs. 350

=> 6M/3 = 350

=> 2M = 350

=> M = 350/2 = Rs. 175

=> Amount of money Navaneet has = Rs. 3.75M = 3.75 x 175 = Rs. 656.25.

A) 33 yrs B) 27 yrs
C) 21 yrs D) 29 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 29 yrs

Explanation:

Let the avg age of 7 boys be 'p' years
Let the age of the girl be 'q' years
From given data,
The age of 7 boys = 7p years
Now the new average = (p + 1) when 22 yrs is replaced by q
Now the age of all 7 will become = 7(p + 1) yrs
Hence, 7p - 22 + q = 7(p + 1) yrs
7p - 22 + q = 7p + 7
q = 22 + 7 = 29

Therefore, the age of girl = q = 29 years.

Q:

In a mixture of three varities of oils , the ratio of their weight is 4 : 5 : 8. If 5 kg of oils of the first variety, 10 kg of the second variety and some quantity of oils of the third variety are added to the mixture, the ratio of the weights of three varieties of oils becomes as 5 : 7 : 9 in the final mixture, find the quantity of third variety of oil was ? 

A) 15 kg B) 25 kg
C) 35 kg D) 45 kg
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 45 kg

Explanation:

Let the ratio of initial quantity of oils be 'x' => 4x, 5x & 8x.
Let k be the quantity of third variety of oil in the final mixture.
Let the ratio of initial quantity of oils be 'y'
From given details,
4x + 5 = 5y ..... (1)
5x + 10 = 7y .....(2)
8x + k = 9y ......(3)

By solving (1) & (2), we get
x = 5 & y = 5

From (3) => k = 5

Therefore, quantity of third variety of oil was 9y = 9(5) = 45kg.
