Q:

5/9 of the part of the population in a village are females. If 30 % of the females are married. The percentage of unmarried males in the total males is ?

A) 62.5 % B) 125 %
C) 84.32 % D) 46.87 %
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 62.5 %

Explanation:

Let total population = p
number of females = 5p/9
number of males =(p-5p/9) = 4p/9
married females = 30% of 5p/9 = 30x5p/100x9 = p/6
married males = p/6
unmarried males =(4p/9-p/6) = 5p/18
Percentage of unmarried males in the total males = {(5p/18)/4p/9}x100 = (5p/18)x(9/4p) = 125/2 % = 62.5%

Q:

The cost price of 40 Magazines is the same as the selling price of 'P' articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of 'P' is:

A) 32 B) 40
C) 16 D) 30
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 32

S.P. of P articles = Rs. 40.

Profit = Rs. (40 - P)

Now, Gain% = 

Here  = 25

(40-P)100 = 25P

4000 - 100P = 25P

125P = 4000

P = 4000/125

P = 32.

Q:

Ram and Raj start a business with investments of Rs. 2500 and Rs. 2250 respectively. After 2 months, Ram takes out Rs.1250 from his capital. After 1 more month, Raj takes out Rs.750 of his capital while Rakesh joins them with a capital of Rs. 3500. At the end of 6 months, they earn a profit of Rs. 2540. Which of the following is the share of each member in the profit ?

A) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 840 B) Ram - Rs. 900, Raj - Rs. 800, Rakesh - Rs. 840
C) Ram - Rs. 840, Raj - Rs. 920, Rakesh - Rs. 840 D) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 940
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 840

Explanation:

Initial investment of Ram = Rs.2500.
After 2 months he withdraw Rs.1250 from his capital.
Therefore, we have, Ram invested Rs.2500 for 2 months and Rs.(2500-1250=) 1250 for 4 months.

Raj invested Rs. 2250 for 3 months and Rs.(2250-750=) 1500 for 3 months.

And, Rakesh invested Rs.3500 for 3 months;

Their investing ratio:
Ram:Raj:Rakesh = (2500x2 + 1250x4):(2250x3 + 1500x3):(3500x3)
= (10,000):(11,250):(10,500) = 1000:1125:1050 = 40:45:42

Total profit for 6 months = Rs.2540
Therefore, Ram's share = Rs.(2540 x 40/(40+45+42)) = Rs.(2540 x 40/127) = Rs.800
Raj's share = Rs.(2540 x 45/127) = Rs.900
Rakesh's share = Rs.(2540 x 42/127) = Rs.840
