 Answer : Option C Explanation : Let x and y be two numbers in which x is greater than yXy = 1092 (x + y) - (x - y) = 42 2y = 42 y = 21 x = $1092 \over 21$ = 52
2 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : Let Breadth = x metres and length = $3x \over 2$ metresx $\times$ $3x \over 2$ = $3\over 2$ x 10000 $x^2$ = 10000 x = 100 Length = $3\over 2$ x 100 = 150 m
3 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : 7 x 50 = 350 km;= $350 \over 60 - 50$ = 35 hrDistance = 35 x 60 = 2100 km
4 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : AB = x A = x + 6 B = x + 1.5 $1\over{x + 6}$ + $1 \over {x + 1.5}$ = $1\over x$ $\Rightarrow$ = 3
5 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : Original price = 100 C.P = 90 S.P = $135 \over 100$ x 100 = 135 % profit = $(135-90) \over 90$ x 100 = $45 \over 90$ x 100 = 50 %
6 .
 Answer : Option D Explanation : $24+18 - 28 \over 100$ x 16 = 2.24 lakh
7 .
 Answer : Option B Explanation : $8\over 100$ x 16 x $1\over 5$ x 100,000 = 25600
8 .
 Answer : Option C Explanation : I$_1$, sold by A = 16 x $24 \over 100$ x $5\over 8$ x $65 \over 100$ = 1.56 lakhSimilarly,Total I$_1$ = 1.56 + 0.896 + 0.6912 + 1.44 + 0.4096 + 0.384 = 5.3808 lakhArrange = $5.3808 \over 6$ = 89680
9 .
 Answer : Option A Explanation : $I_1$ = $4\over 7$ x $7\over 100$ x 16,00,000 = 64,000$I_2$ = $3\over 7$ x $7\over 100$ x 16,00,000 = 48,000$I_1$ sold = 64000 x $64 \over 100$ = 40960 $I_2$ sold = 48000 x $55 \over 100$ = 26400 Difference = $I_1 - I_2$ = 14560
