Q:

Each edge of a cube is increased by 20% then the percentage increase in surface area of the cube is : 

A) 144% B) 40%
C) 44% D) 72.8%

Answer:   C) 44%



Explanation:

The surface area of a cube = \inline 6a^{2} = \inline 6\times(side)^{2}

New  Surface area = \inline 6\times 1.44a^{2}

\therefore  \inline \frac{0.44a^{2}}{a^{2}}\times 100 = 44%

Q:

What will come in place of the question mark(?) in the following question ?

56% of 870 + 82% of 180 = 32% of 90 + ?

A) 777 B) 666
C) 606 D) 789
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 606

Explanation:

56% of 870 = 56x870/100 = 487.20

82% of 180 = 82x180/100 = 147.60

32% of 90 = 32x90/100

487.20 + 147.6 - 28.8  =  ?

? = 634.8  - 28.8

? = 606.

Q:

The price of a car is increased by 25%, by how much percent, must the new price of this car be decreased to restore its original price ?

A) 20% B) 24%
C) 21% D) 25%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 20%

Explanation:

Suppose that the original price of the car = Rs. x 

Then new price of the car

=> (x) + (×25/100) Rs. 5x/

To restore the original price, the new price must be decreased by

5x/− x/4

So required percentage =(x/4)/(5x/4) × 100%

= 20%

Q:

Prasanna invested certain amount in three different schemes X, Y and Z with the rate of interest 10% p.a, 12% p.a and 15% p.a respectively. If the total interest accrued in one year was Rs. 3200 and the amount invested in Scheme Z was 150% of the amount invested in Scheme X and 240% of the amount invested in Scheme Y, what was the amount invested in Scheme Y by Prasanna ?

A) Rs.6000 B) Rs.4500
C) Rs.7500 D) Rs.5000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs.5000

Explanation:

Let a, b and c be the amounts invested in schemes X, Y and Z respectively. Then,

As we know:

Simple interest (S.I.) = PTR/100

(a × 10 × 1/100) + (b × 12 × 1/100) + (c × 15 × 1/100) = 3200

= 10a + 12b + 15c = 320000 .........(1)

Now, c = 240% of b = 12b/5 .........(2)

And, c = 150% of a = 3a/2 => a = 2/3 c = (2 × 12)b/(3 × 5) = 8b/5 .......(3)

From (1), (2) and (3), we have

16b + 12b + 36b = 320000 => 64b = 320000 => b = 5000

∴ Sum invested in Scheme Y = Rs.5000.
