**Solutions**:

S1. Ans.(d)

Sol.

CP of Chandra= Rs 150

CP of Mayank =150×70/100

= 105

SP of Mayank =120/100×105

= Rs 126

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Initial quantity of sugar =4/100×6

= 0.24 li

∴ Required percentage =0.24/5×100

= 4.8%

S4. Ans.(c)

Sol. Required probability = 1-(1-1/6)×(1-2/5)=1-5/6×3/5=1-1/2=1/2

S5.Ans.(d)

Sol.

One minute work of both A and B together

=1/12+1/15

=9/60=3/20

∴ 5 minute work of (A + B) → 3/20×5

=3/4

∴ Time taken by C to empty the tank

=3/4×60

= 45 min

S6. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Let cost price = Rs x

∴110/100 x-95x/100=56.25

⇒ x = Rs 375

∴ Required profit =(450-375)/375×100

= 20%

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Let they work together for x hours per day

∴(1/(20×10)+1/(24×10)+1/(30×10))×10x=1

⇒(6+5+4)x/120=1

⇒ x = 8 hours

S8. Ans.(a)

Sol.

First six natural numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Favourable cases = (1 & 2) or (1 & 5) or (2 & 1) or (5, 1) or (2 & 4)

or (4 & 2) or (3 & 6) or (6 & 3) or (4 & 5) or (5 & 4)

Number of favourable cases = 10

Total possible cases = 6 × 5 = 30

∴ Required probability

S9. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Total numbers greater than 6000

= 4 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 96
