एक देश की कुल आबादी 294000 है, जिनमें से 150000 पुरुष हैं। प्रत्येक 100 पुरुषों में से 98 पढ़ और लिख सकते हैं, लेकिन कुल जनसंख्या का केवल 53% ऐसा कर सकते हैं। उन महिलाओं का प्रतिशत क्या है जो पढ़ और लिख सकती हैं?

A)
6.125 %

B)
5.125 %

C)
6.000 %

D)
4.125 %


Correct Answer :

6.125 %


Explanation :

Number of men who can read and write = 150000 × (98 ÷ 100) =147000
Number of men and women who can read and write =294000 × (53 ÷ 100) =155820
Number of women who can read and write 155820 - 147000 = 8820
Thus, out of 144000 women 8820 can read and write.
Required percentage = (8820 × 100) ⁄ 144000 %= 6.125

Due to an increase in the price of eggs by 30%, now 3 less eggs are available for Rs.9.10. The present rate per egg is?


अंडे की कीमत में 30% की वृद्धि के कारण, 9 रु  10 पैसे में अब तीन अंडे कम प्राप्त होते है।एक अंडा की वर्तमान कीमत क्या होगी?

A)
91 paise

B)
70 paise

C)
48 paise

D)
84 paise


Correct Answer :

91 paise


Explanation :

Let the original price of a egg= X
New price, 30% increased in the price => (1+30/100)X =>13X/10
according to question
9.10( 1/X - 1/(13X/10) )=3
(9.10/3)(3/13)=X
X=9.1/13


So present price of a egg i.e. new price=>13X/10
=>(13/10)(9.1/13) =>.91

44% of the students in the class are females and the number of male students is 42. Find the total number of students in the class?


एक कक्षा में 44% विद्यार्थीं लडकियाँ है एवं 42 लड़के हैं। कक्षा में कुल विद्यार्थींयो की संख्या पता कीजिए?

A)
70

B)
65

C)
75

D)
45


Correct Answer :

75


Explanation :

% of females student =44
So % of male students=(100-44)=>56

Let the total number of students=X
then 56% of X <=> 56X/100=42
X=4200/56

Therefore total students = X => 75

The price of petrol falls down by 20%. By how much percent must a man increase his consumption, so as to keep his expenditure constant?


पेट्रोल के दाम 20 प्रतिशत से कम हो जाताहै। एक व्यक्ति को अपनी खर्च सामान रखने के लिए खपत को कितना प्रतिशत बढ़ाना चाहिए?

A)
42%

B)
25%

C)
20%

D)
10%


Correct Answer :

25%


Explanation :

Let initial price of petrol =Rs. 100 per ltr
Initial monthly consumption =100 ltr
Total monthly expenditure =100×100=Rs. 10000

New price of petrol(falls down by 20%)=Rs. 80 per ltr
Let new monthly consumption=x ltr
New monthly expenditure =80*x

to keep monthly expenditure remain constant⇒ 10000=80*x
⇒x=125

i.e., increase in consumption=25%

The height of a tree is 800cm and it increases 10% yearly. Find the height of the tree after three years?


एक पेड की ऊँचाई 800 सेमी है और इसमें प्रतिवर्ष 10 प्रतिशत की वृद्धि होती है। तीन वर्ष के बाद उसकी ऊँचाई ज्ञात कीजिए?

A)
1000 cm

B)
1060.4 cm

C)
1052.6 cm

D)
1064.8 cm


Correct Answer :

1064.8 cm


Explanation :

The height of a tree after n yeras , if it increases at the rate of R% per annum= P [1+(R/100)]n
Thus,
The height of the tree after three years= 800 [1+(10/100)]3
=> 800 [11/10]3
=> .8*11*11*11
=> 1064.8 cm

सेव का भाव 50 रू. प्रतिकिलो से बढ़कर 75 रू. प्रतिकिलो हो गया। किसी व्यक्ति को अपने खर्च को एकसमान रखने हेतु खपत को कितने प्रतिशत से कम करने की आवशयकता है?

A)
20%

B)
25%

C)
16(2/3)%

D)
33(1/3)%


Correct Answer :

33(1/3)%


Explanation :

Let original consumption = 100 kg and new consumption = x kg,
So, 100*50 = x*75
x=200/3
Reduction in consumption (100-200/3)= 100/3 = 33(1/3)%

In an examination a candidate who got 30% of the total marks failed by 8 marks. Another candidate who got 35% marks scored 12 marks more than the passing marks. Total marks are?


एक परीक्षा में एक परीक्षार्थी जिसे कुल अंको के 30% अंक प्राप्‍त हुए है, 8 अंको से अनुत्तीर्ण हुआ | एक अन्‍य परीक्षार्थी जिसे कुल अंको के 35 % अकं प्राप्‍त हुए है, उसके अकं उत्तीर्ण अंको से 12 अकं अधिक है | कुल अकं है?

A)
500

B)
400

C)
800

D)
300


Correct Answer :

400


Explanation :

Let x be the maximum marks,

Then (30% of x)+8 = (35% of x)-12

3*x/10 + 8 = 7*x/20 - 12
3*x + 80 = (7*x - 240)/2

6*x + 160 = 7*x -240
Hence,Minimum marks x=400

The salary of a worker is first increased by 30% and afterwards reduced by 30%. What is the net change in his salary?


एक कर्मचारी का वेतन पहले 30 % से बढ़ाया जाता है एवं बाद में 30 % से घटाया जाया है, उसके वेतन में कुल परिवर्तन क्या होगा?

A)
91% increase

B)
30% decrease

C)
9% decrease

D)
None of these


Correct Answer :

9% decrease


Explanation :

Let a original number is = 100
New number, increased by 30% = 100 + (30% of 100) = 130
Now it is reduced by 30% = 130 - (30% of 130) = 91

that means , in net it is 100 - 91 = 9% decreasing


Or
If something increased by x% and reduced by x% then net effect will be loss of (x/10)2 %
= (30/10)2
= 9 %

A boy, after giving away 80% of his pocket money to one companion and 6% of the remainder to another, has 94 paise left with him. How much pocket money did the boy have in the beginning(in rupees)?


एक लड़के द्वारा अपने एक साथी को अपने जेबखर्च से 80% राशि और एक अन्य साथी को शेष राशि का 6% देने के पश्चात उसके पास 94 पैसे शेष रह जाते है। लड़के के पास प्रारंभ में जेबखर्च के लिए कितनी राशि थी?(रुपये में)?

A)
2

B)
2.5

C)
5

D)
10


Correct Answer :

5


Explanation :

Let the boy had Rs.x
Money given to his companion = 80% of x = 4x/5
Remaining money = x - 4x/5 = x/5
Money given to another companion = (6/100)*(x/5) = 3x/250
Remaining money => x/5 - 3x/250 = 94/100 (in rupees)
so 47x/250 = 94/100
x = 94*250/100*47
x = 5 (in rupees)

New monthly expenditure =125*x

to keep monthly expenditure remain constant⇒ 10000=125*x
⇒x=80

i.e., reducedtion in consumption=20%

New price of Sugar(falls down by 25%)=Rs. 75 per kg
Let new monthly consumption=x kg
New monthly expenditure =75*x

to keep monthly expenditure remain constant⇒ 10000=75*x
⇒x=133(1/3)

i.e., increase in consumption=33(1/3)%

The first class ticket price of a circus is 12. When the price is decreased then the number of visitors increased by 80% and the total income is increased by 20%. Now, what is the price of each ticket?


एक सर्कस की प्रथम श्रेणी की टिकिट का मूल्य 12 है। जब मूल्य कम किया गया तो दर्शकों की सं ख्या में 80% वृद्धि हुई और कुल आय में 20% वृद्धि हुई। अब प्रत्येक टिकिट का मूल्य क्या है?

A)
8

B)
10

C)
6

D)
15


Correct Answer :

8


Explanation :

Let 100 was the visitors.
On the ticket price 12 the total collection = 12 *100 = 1200

After decreased in price , let it be X.
New visitors= 100 + 80% of 100 =>180
New income, total income after 20% increased = 1200 + 20% of 1200=>1440

Therefore, New collection = X * 180 = 1440
=> X = 1440/180

thus, Price of each ticket ,X = 8

If M% of x is y and N% of y is x, then ?


यदि x का M%, y है और y का N%, x है तब­ ?

A)
M+N = 100

B)
MN = 10000

C)
M/N= 100

D)
N/M = 100


Correct Answer :

MN = 10000


Explanation :

Y is M percent of X --> (MX/100)=Y

X is N percent of Y --> (NY/100)=X

Thus, after subsitute Y's value
=>(N/100)*(M/100)*X=X
=>MN=10000

Out of the total production of iron from hematite, an ore of iron, 20% of the ore gets wasted, and out of the remaining iron, only 25% is pure iron. If the pure iron obtained in a year from a mine of hematite was 80,000 kg, then the quantity of hematite mined from that mine in the year is?


लोहे के अय‫स्क‬ हेमेटाइट की एक खान से उत्पादित कुल अय‫स्क‬ का कुल 20% अय‫स्क‬ खराब प्राप्त होता है , शेष अय‫स्क‬ का केवल 25% शुद्ध लोहा होता है। यदि एक वर्ष में हेमेटाइट से 80,000 किग्रा शुद्ध लोहा प्राप्त होता है , तो 1 वर्ष में खान में से हेमेटाइट की कितनी मात्रा निकाली गयी?

A)
500000 kg

B)
400000 kg

C)
450000 kg

D)
550000 kg


Correct Answer :

400000 kg


Explanation :

Let 100 kg of hematite be obtained then 20% of it get wasted that means 80 kg of ore remains.
Pure iron = 25% of remaining ore = 80*25/100 = 20 kg.
20 kg pure Iron is obtained from 100 of hematite.
1 kg pure Iron is obtained from = 100/20 hematite;
Then, 80000 kg pure Iron is obtained from = (100/20)*80000 = 400000 kg hematite.

68% of a number is 280 more than 43% of the same number. Find the number?


एक संख्या का 68% उसी संख्या के 43% से 280 अधिक है। संख्या क्या होगी?

therefore, the number = 280 × 100 / 25
=> 1120

The population of a town is 100000. If it increases at the rate of 5% per annum, what will be the population of the town after 2 years?

Population after n yeras = P [1+(R/100)]n

The population after 2 years= 100000 [1+(5/100)]2
= 100000*21/20*21/20
= 110250
