A. For the students, total marks obtained for Biology is 311.5.
B. Total of M’s and P’s marks in Biology is 147.5.
C. R has obtained 84 marks.

A) Only C B) Only A & B
C) All are required D) None of the statements is required
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) None of the statements is required

Explanation:

From the given data,
(60 - 45)% = 12.5 + 4
15% = 16.5
=> 100% = ?
100% = 16.5 x 100/15 = 110

Hence, P = 45% of 110 = 45x110/100 = 49.5
Q = 50% of 110 = 55
R = 60% of 110 = 60 x 110/100 = 66
M = 12.5 + 49.5 = 62 or 66 - 4 = 62

 

Hence, no statement is required to answer.

Explanation:

Let the total quantity of gold be p kgs.

According to the question,

50% of p + 25% of p + 12.5% of p = 130900

87.5% of p = 130900

p = 130900 x 100/87.5  = 149600 kgs.

 

Therefore, the initial gold quantity that king has = p = 149600 kgs.
