Q:

Ram sell his goods 25% cheaper than Shyam and 25% dearer than Bram. How much % is Bram's good cheaper than Shyam ?

A) 60% B) 40%
C) 50% D) 30%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 40%

Explanation:

Lets say shyam sells at 100,

Since Ram sells 25% cheaper than Shyam,

Therefor Ram sells at less than 25% of100 or 75 rs.

Ram sells 25% dearer than Bram or 125% of Ram =100% of Bram or

125% of x (say x price of bram )=75rs.
or 100% of x =60rs.
hence price of bram is 60rs.

now Bram's good is cheaper than Shyam's as (100-60)x100/100% or 40%.

Hence Brams Good is 40% cheaper than that of Shyam's good.

Q:

What is better, to have 70% discount or 40 and 30% discount consequently ?

A) 40% is better B) 70% is better
C) Both are same D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 70% is better

Explanation:

Let Price be Rs.100

1st CASE:

Then 100 x 70/100 = 70
=> price after discount = 100-70 = Rs.30

2nd CASE:

Then 100 x 40/100 = 40
=> price after discount = 100-40 = Rs.60
then
60 x 30/100 = 18
=> price after 2 consequent discount = 60-18 = Rs.42

=>from 1 and 2 cases, 70% discount is better.

Q:

Prashanth sold a album for $ 735 and made a profit of 22.5% . The cost price of the album went up by $120 and so Prashanth increased the selling price by $120. What is his profit % now ?

A) 19.32 % B) 18.75 %

New CP = 600 + 120 = Rs. 720
New SP = 735 + 120 = Rs. 855.

Profit = Rs. 135.

profit % = 100 x 135/720 = 18.75%.

Q:

Tanks A and B are each in the shape of a right circular cylinder. The interior of tank A has a height of 10 meters and a circumference of 8 meters, and the interior of tank B has a height of 8 meters and a circumference of 10 meters. The capacity of tank A is what percent of the capacity of tank B ?

A) 76% B) 72%
C) 80% D) 82%
