A) Dr. G. D. Bist | B) J.R.D. Tata |

C) J.M. Tagore | D) Khudada Khan |

Explanation:

**Dr. G. D. Bist**, Guinness Record Holder, the first-ever Ph.D. in Stenography in the world.

He had achieved a highest speed of **250 w.p.m**. in Shorthand.

A) 100% | B) 200% |

C) 300% | D) 400% |

Explanation:

Let the C.P be Rs.100 and S.P be Rs.x, Then

The profit is (x-100)

Now the S.P is doubled, then the new S.P is 2x

New profit is (2x-100)

Now as per the given condition;

=> 3(x-100) = 2x-100

By solving, we get

x = 200

Then the Profit percent = (200-100)/100 = 100

Hence the profit percentage is 100%

A) 650 | B) 690 |

C) 698 | D) 700 |

Explanation:

S.I. for 1 year = Rs. (854 - 815) = Rs. 39.

S.I. for 3 years = Rs.(39 x 3) = Rs. 117.

Principal = Rs. (815 - 117) = Rs. 698

A) 12.5% | B) 13.5% |

C) 11.5% | D) 14.5% |

Explanation:

Let principal = P, Then, S.I.= P and Time = 8 years

We know that S.I. = PTR/100

**Rate** = [(100 x P)/ (P x 8)]% = 12.5% per annum.

A) 2 years | B) 2.5 years |

C) 3 years | D) 4 years |

Explanation:

Amount = Rs.(30000+4347) = Rs.34347

let the time be n years

Then,30000(1+7/100)^n = 34347

(107/100)^n = 34347/30000 = 11449/10000 = (107/100)^2

n = 2years

A) Rs.325 | B) Rs.545 |

C) Rs.560 | D) Rs.550 |

Explanation:

Let each instalment be Rs.x .

1st year = [x + (x * 12 * 2)/100]

2nd year = [ x + (x *12 * 1)/100]

3rd year = x

Then, [x + (x * 12 * 2)/100] + [ x + (x *12 * 1)/100] + x =1092

3x + ( 24x/100 ) + ( 12x/100 ) = 1092

336x =109200

Therefore, x = 325

Each instalment = Rs. 325

A) 1.5 | B) 2.5 |

C) 3.5 | D) 4.5 |

Explanation:

Let the time be 'n' years, Then

$800\times {\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)}^{2}n=926.10={\left(1+\frac{5}{100}\right)}^{2}n=\frac{9261}{8000}={\left(\frac{21}{20}\right)}^{2}n={\left(\frac{21}{10}\right)}^{3}$

n = 3/2 or n= 1$\frac{1}{2}$ Years

A) Monday | B) Tuesday |

C) Wednesday | D) Friday |

Explanation:

17th June, 1998 = (1997 years + Period from 1.1.1998 to 17.6.1998)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 300 years = 1

97 years has 24 leap years + 73 ordinary years.

Number of odd days in 97 years ( 24 x 2 + 73) = 121 = 2 odd days.

Jan. Feb. March. April. May. June.

(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 17) = 168 days

168 days = 24 weeks = 0 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 2 + 0) = 3.

Given day is Wednesday.
