Q:

In a college, number of boys is 75% of number of girls. Difference between boys and girls is 35. On a particular day 20% boys were absent, then find the number of boys those who present?

A) 72 B) 84
C) 93 D) 81
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 84

Explanation:

Ratio of girls and boys = 100% : 75% = 4:3

Difference is 1 unit = 35

So, 3 units = 35 x 3 = 105

If 20% absent, that’s mean 80% present.

So, present boys = 80% of 105 = 80×105100 = 84

Q:

A girl read 2/5 part of a book in 1st day, 34% in second day and remaining page in next two days. In two days she read equal number of page. If she read 52 pages on last day, then find out how many pages did the book contain?

A) 400 B) 376
C) 382 D) 356
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 400

Explanation:

1st day the girl read = 40%

2nd day she read = 34 %

Remaining percentage of book = 100% - (40% +34%) = 26%

But given last two days she read equal number of pages

=> Each day she read 26%/2 = 13%

Last day she read 52 pages = 13%

13% = 52

1% = 4

=> 100% = 400

Total pages in the book is 400.

A) 7000 B) 10000
C) 14000 D) 20000

50% on food and transport = 50P100 = P2

1000 on rent

Q:

56% of 225 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

 

Find the value of '?' in the above equation

A) 264 B) 220
C) 241 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 264

Explanation:

Given 56% of 225 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

we know that a% of b = b% of a

Now,

225% of 56 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

200% of 56 + 25% of 56 + 20% of 150 = ? - 109

112 + 14 + 30 = ? - 109

? = 112 + 14 + 30 + 109

? = 264

Q:

5% of a number is 25% more than another number. The difference between the numbers is 96. Then find the value of the numbers?

A) 102 & 6 B) 99 & 3
C) 104 & 8 D) 100 & 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 100 & 4

Explanation:

Let the first number be x and the second number be y.

Given

5% of x = (25% of y) + y

=> 5x/100 = 5y/4

=> x = 25y ......(1)

and also given that, x - y = 96

=> x = 96 + y .....(2)

From (1)&(2)

25y = 96 + y

=> 24y = 96

=> y = 4

From (1)

x = 96 + 4 = 100

Hence, the numbers are 100 & 4.
