Q:

# Three strategies P, Q and R have been initiated for cost cutting in a company producing respectively 20%, 30% and 10% savings. Assuming that they operate independently, what is the net saving achieved ?

 A) 49.6% B) 50.4% C) 33.67% D) 66.66%

Explanation:

As these three strategies P, Q and R are independent so these will cut cost one after the other.
If initial cost is Rs 100, then
20% cost is cut after initializing strategy P, then cost will remain 80% = 80
further 30% cost is cut after strategy Q, then cost will remain 70% of 80 = 56
further 10% cost is cut after strategy R, then cost will remain 90% of 56 = 50.4

Thus final cost remains 50.4 % of the original cost. Hence net saving is 100 - 50.4 = 49.6 %.

Q:

Twenty percent of Karthik’s monthly salary is equal to thirty two percent of Nikitha’s monthly salary. Vipin’s monthly salary is four fifth that of Nikitha’s monthly salary. If Vipin’s annual salary is Rs. 3.84 lakhs, what is Karthik’s monthly salary?

 A) 32,000 B) 64,000 C) 40,000 D) 52,000

20% of K = 32% of N

V = 4/5 N

Given Vipin's salary = 3.84 lpa = 3.84/12 = 32,000 per month

Now, N = 5/4 x 32000 = 40000

Now K = 32/20 x 40000 = 64000

Hence, karthik's monthly salary = Rs. 64000.

Q:

Sairam spent Rs. 38460 on the renovation of his home and Rs. 24468 on buying TV set and remained with 28% of the total amount. What was the total amount?

 A) Rs. 87400 B) Rs. 68700 C) Rs. 74000 D) Rs. 94060

Explanation:

Let the total amount he had with = Rs. p

From the given data,

p - 38460 - 24468 = 28p/100

p - 28p/100 = 24468 + 38460

72p/100 = 62928

72p = 62928 x 100

p = 62928 x 100/72

p = 87400

Hence, the total amount he had = p = Rs. 87400.
