A) 11440 | B) 11998 |

C) 12240 | D) 12880 |

Explanation:

LCM of (80, 85, 90) can be found by prime factorizing them.

80 → 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5

85 → 17 × 5

90 → 2 × 3 × 3 × 5

L.C.M of (80,85,90) = 2 × 2 x 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 17

= 16 x 9 x 85

= 144 x 85

= 12240

**L.C.M of (80,85,90) = 12240.**

A) 9 | B) 12 |

C) 18 | D) 24 |

Explanation:

From the given data,

P = 140

But it is given that,

**40% of Q + Q = 140 = P**

=> Q + [40Q/100] = 140

=> [100Q + 40Q]/100 = 140

=> 140Q = 140 x 100

=> Q = 100

Now,

**3/25 of Q **

= (3/25) x 100

= 3 x 4

= 12

Required** 3/25 of Q = 12.**

A) 196 | B) 148 |

C) 132 | D) 112 |

Explanation:

16 : 56 :: 32 : ?

Let the required number be **'n'**

The given numbers follow a logic that,

16/56 = 2/7

=> 32/n = 2/7

=> 32 x 7/2 = n

=> n = 112.

Hence, **16 : 56 :: 32 : 112.**

A) 11 and 4 | B) 3 and 11 |

C) 11 and 33 | D) 40 and 4 |

Explanation:

Let the smaller number be 'm'

Then, from the given data, the larger number is '3m'

Given that m + 3m = 44

=> 4m = 44

m = 44/4 = 11

=> m = 11

=> 3m = 3 x 11 = 33

Hence, the two numbers are 11 and 33.

A) 84 | B) 48 |

C) 68 | D) 88 |

Explanation:

From the given data,

when my age is 24, my mothers age is double of my age

=> 48 yrs is my mothers age

=> Difference is 48 - 24 = 24 years.

When my age is 44

=> My mother is 44 + 24 = 68 years aged.

A) 4 | B) 400 |

C) 475 | D) 40 |

Explanation:

The value of 4 in 475 means the place value of 4 in 475 and not its face value. Face value means the digit itself though it is at any place in the given number. But place value means the value of digit in its place in the given number.

Here the place value of 4 in 475 can be determined by as 4 is in 100's place in 475.

Hence, the place value of 4 in 475 is **4x100 = 400.**

A) 48 sq units | B) 24 sq units |

C) 12 sq units | D) 6 sq units |

Explanation:

We know that,

The area of a triangle with two sides given and included angle

A =** 1/2 x product of sides x Sin(angle) **

Here the two sides are 8 & 12

Angle = 150

Area = 1/2 x 8 x 12 x sin150

Sin(150) = sin(90+60) = cos(60) = 1/2

A = 48 x 1/2 = 24

Area of the given triangle = **24 sq units.**

A) Rs. 36 | B) Rs. 30 |

C) Rs. 28 | D) Rs. 40 |

Explanation:

From the given data,

When the price of rice is decreased by 10%, the value of Rs. 270 would become

270 x 100/90 = 300

Now, the value 270 becomes 300

And given, the girl could buy 1 kg extra for that value

Change in value = 300 - 270 = Rs. 30

Therefore, 1 kg extra rice she can get for Rs. 30

=> The original price of rice = Rs. 30/kg.

As she gets only 9 kgs for Rs. 270 before 10% discount, now after discount she gets 10 kgs instead of 9 kgs for Rs. 270.
