Q:

# Lucky started working 2 years ago. Her starting salary was half of Karthik's salary at that time. Each year since then Lucky and Karthik have received a rise of 10% in their respective salary. What percentage (to the nearest percent) of Karthik's current salary is Lucky's current salary ?

 A) 75% B) 22.5% C) 35% D) 50%

Answer:   D) 50%

Explanation:

Let the salary of Karthik 2 years ago be Rs.100
So, Lucky's salary 2 years ago was Rs.50

Karthik's present salary has seen two 10 percent increases. So as Lucky's salary.

So, Karthik's salary 1 year ago = 100 + 10% of 100 = 100 + 10 = 110.
Karthik's present salary = 110 + 10% of 110 = 110 + 11 = 121.

Lucky's salary 1 year ago = 50 + 10% of 50 = 50 + 5 = 55
Lucky's present salary = 55 + 10% of 55 = 55 + 5.5 = 60.5

Lucky's present salary of 60.5 = 50% of Karthik's present salary of 121.

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

 A) 23 B) 92 C) 48 D) 52
