Q:

In an election between two candidates, one got 55% of the total valid votes, 20% of the votes were invalid. If the total number of votes was 7500, the number of valid votes that the other candidate got, was :

A) 2500 B) 2700
C) 2900 D) 3100

Answer:   B) 2700



Explanation:

Total number of votes = 7500 

Given that 20% of Percentage votes were invalid

 => Valid votes = 80%

 Total valid votes = 7500*(80/100) 

1st candidate got 55% of the total valid votes. 

Hence the 2nd candidate should have got 45% of the total valid votes 

=> Valid votes that 2nd candidate got = total valid votes x (45/100) 

7500*(80/100)*(45/100) = 2700

Q:

Mohan spends 23% of an amount of money on an insurance policy, 33% on food, 19% on children’s education and 16% on recreation. He deposits the remaining amount of Rs. 504 in bank. How much amount does he spend on food and insurance policy together?

A) Rs. 2326 B) Rs. 5876
C) Rs. 1741 D) Rs. 3136
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 3136

Explanation:

Let total amount = Rs. P

Total expenditure = (23 + 33 + 19 + 16)% of P = 91%ofP

Remaining money = (100 - 91)% of P = 9% of P

But given in the question that,

9% of P = 504

9p/100 = 504

=> P = 50400/9

=> P = Rs. 5600

 

Required money spent on Food & Insurance = 23 + 33 %

= 56% of 5600

= 56 x 5600/100 = 56 x 56 = Rs. 3136

Q:

Rs. 69 were divided among 115 family members so that each lady gets 50 paise less than each gentleman, and each gentleman received twice the paise as each lady received. Find the number of  gentlemen in the family?

A) 23 B) 92
C) 48 D) 52
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 23

Explanation:

Total number of female members = 115

Let the number of males = x

Number of females = y

=> x + y = 115  ......(1)

According to the given data,

x + y(0.50) = 69 ......(2)

From (1) & (2), we get

0.5y = 46

=> y = 46 x 2 = 92
