Q:

X and Y entered into partnership with Rs. 700 and Rs. 600 respectively. After another 3 months, X withdrew two- sevenths of his stock but after 3 months, he puts back three-fifths of what he had withdrawn. The total profit at the end of the year is Rs. 726. How much of this should X receive?

 A) Rs. 336 B) Rs. 366 C) Rs. 633 D) Rs. 663

Explanation:

Profit ratio X & Y = (700 × 3) + (700 × 5/7× 3) + (700× 5/7 + 200 × 3/5 )× 6 : 600 ×12
X:Y= 7320 : 7200= 183:180
∴ X’s share from profit = 183 × 726/(183+180) = Rs. 366.

Q:

A is 50% more efficient than B. They together start the work and 7/12th of work is left after 8 days. Find in what time B alone will complete the whole work.

 A) 36 days B) 44 days C) 50 days D) 40 days

Explanation:

Ratio of efficiency of A to B is 3 : 2

Let, In 8 days they complete = (3 + 2) × 8 = 40 units

So, total work = 40 × 12/5 units

Time taken by B alone to complete whole work = 40 ×  12/5 ×2 = 48 days

Q:

Mahesh rows to the place 80 km away and back in 20 hours. He finds that he can row 8 km downstream in the same time as 4 km upstream. The speed of the boat in stillwater is

 A) 9 kmph B) 7 kmph C) 2 kmph D) 5 kmph

Explanation:
If Mahesh moves 8 km downstream in X hours

Downstream speed = 8/X kmph

upstream speed = 4/X kmph

Now 80/(8/X) + 80/(4/X)=20

X=2/3

downstream Speed = 8/(2/3)= 12 kmph

upstream Speed = 4/(2/3)= 6 kmph

Rate of the stream = (12+6)/2= 9 kmph
