 A) 108.25 B) 112.20 C) 124.75 D) 125.25

Answer:   C) 124.75

Explanation:

For an income of Rs. 756, investment = Rs. 9000.

For an income of $Rs.212$,  investment =$Rs.9000756×212$ = Rs. 125.

Income in 2nd case = Rs.$394×117$ x 143 x 117= Rs. 1394.25

Clearly, 9 3/4% stock at 117 is better.

Amount invested on expenditure = 25% = x/4;
Remaning amount = 3x/4;
Amount invested on children education = 20% i.e = 3x/20;
Remaining amount = 3x/4 - 3x/20 = 3x/5;
Remaining amount invested in three different schemes i.e is 1/3(3x/5)
=> x/5 = 5600
Therefore x = 28000
Hence, Monthly salary of Shankar is Rs. 28,000.

Q:

A man sells Rs.5000, 12 % stock at 156 and uinvests the proceeds parity in 8 % stock at 90 and 9 % stock at 108. He hereby increases his income by Rs. 70. How much of the proceeds were invested in each stock?

 A) 4000 B) 4200 C) 4002 D) 4020

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 4200

Explanation:

S.P of Rs. 5000 stock = $Rs.156100*5000$= Rs. 7800.

Income from this stock = $Rs.12100*5000$ = Rs. 600.

Let investment in 8 % stock be x and that in 9 % stock = (7800 - x).

Therefore,

$x*890+7800-x*9108=600+70$

$4x45+7800-x12=670⇔x=3600$

Therefore,  Money invested in 8 % stock at 90 = Rs. 3600.

Money invested in 9 % at 108 = Rs. (7800-3600) = Rs. 4200.
