Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol.

Given than,
∠RPQ = 38°
∠PRQ = 90° due to diameter angle in circle
∠RQP = 180 – (90 + 38) = 52°
∠PSR = 180° – 52 = 128° (Quadrilateral opposite angle property)

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol.

OC² = 36 – 9
OC = 3√3
AC = 6√3
Area of ∆ACB
=√3/4×6√3×6√3 = 27 √3

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.

OP = OS = 5 cm
PR = 9 cm, RN = 5 cm
Then PN = 9 – 5 = 4 cm
ON = 3 cm due to triplet.
∆OPN ≈ ∆SLO,
∠SLO = ∠ONP = 90° &
∠PON ≈ ∠OSL ⇒ similar ∆ triangle
PN = OL = 4 cm ⇒ LM = ST = 5 – 4 = 1 cm

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let the production of company B = 100 units
∴ Production of company A = 120 units
Production of company C
= (120×100)/80=150 units
∴ Required ratio
=120∶100∶150=12∶10∶15

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. A : B = 7 : 8
B : C = 4 : 9 = 8 : 18
∴ A : B : C = 7 : 8 : 18
Sum of ratios = 7 + 8 + 18 = 33
Now, C’s share = 18/8×7104
= Rs. 15984

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. C.P. of article
=Rs.(9300-3100)
=Rs.6200
To gain 25%
S.P. = (6200×125)/100
= Rs. 7750

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given then,
Literate people in city 4
=600000/100×63 =378000

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Req.ratio=(220000/100×85/11×7)/(200000/100×58/5×3) =1190/696=595/348

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Total population of city 5
=[259210/7×16]/92×100 = 644000

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. City 1 = 80% of 250000 = 200000
City 2 = 85% of 200000 = 170000
City 3 = 78% of 220000 = 171600
City 4 = 63% of 300000 = 189000
City 5 = 92% of 150000 = 138000
City 6 = 58% of 400000 = 232000
So, city 6 > city 1 > city 4 > city 3 > city 2 > city 5
