1 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : Reqd amount = $44\over0.88$ = 50 quintals
2 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : Let the speed of the slower motorcyclist be x km/hr. Therefore the speed of the faster motorcyclist will be (x + 5) km/hr.In 2 hrs both motorcylists cover2x + 2(x + 5) = (4x + 10) km distance.i.e. 4x + 10 = 220 - 30or, 4x = 180 or, x = 45Ratio = 50 : 45 = 10 : 9
3 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : Let original area ploughed daily = x hectaresTotal area ploughed = 16xIf (x + 18) hectares is ploughed daily, then total area = 10(x + 18)Given that, 16x = 10(x + 18)or, x = 30 hectarestotal area of field = 16 × 30 = 480 hectares
4 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation :

 Answer : Option D Explanation : 6 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation :
7 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation :
8 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : In a three-digit no. with 7 at unit’s place, zero can’t be there at hundred’s place. So, hundred’s place can be filled with any of the digits from 1 to 9. Thus there are 9 options.Ten’s place = digits 0 to 9 = 10 optionsUnit’s place = 7 = 1 optionno. of required numbers = 9 × 10 × 1 = 90
9 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation :
10 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : ? = $725\over 25$ x 13 = 29 - 13 = 16
