a) 42 kg
b) 44 kg
c) 36 kg
d) 40 kg

Solution:
1.
⇒ Work done by Rahul in 8 days = 8 × (1/16) = 1/2
⇒ Work done by Ravi in 8 days = 8 × (1/24) = 1/3
It means, Rahul and Ravi, done 1/2 and 1/3rd of work, respectively, in 8 days
⇒ Work done by kamlesh = {1 – (1/2 + 1/3)} = 1 – 5/6 = 1/6
⇒ Rahul’s share: Ravi’s share : Kamlesh's share = 1/2 : 1/3 = 3 : 2
⇒ Kamlesh’s share = (1/6) × 9,000 = 1500
∴ Kamlesh’s share is Rs. 1500
2.
Work done by Raja and kundan in one day = (1/R) + (1/K) = 1/20
Work done by Mahesh and kundan in one day = (1/M) + (1/K) = 1/30
Work done by Raja and Mahesh in one day = (1/R) + (1/M) = 1/24
Adding the above three equations we get,
⇒ 2{(1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M)} = [(1/20) + (1/30) + (1/24)] = 15/120 = 1/8
⇒ (1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M) = 1/16
Work done by Raja, kundan and Mahesh in one day = (1/R) + (1/K) + (1/M) = 1/16

3.
We can write, (256)^47 = (16^2)^47 = 16^94
Now, when 16 is divided by 15, the remainder is 1
∴ When 16^94 is divided by 15, the remainder is 1

4.
Time taken by train to reach B from A = 11/2 hours
Distance travelled by the train = Speed × Time
∴ Distance travelled by the train = 30 × 11/2 = 165 km

5.
Given that,
S.I = 5/9 P
We know that,
S.I = (P × R × T)/100
⇒ 5/9P = (P × R × 25)/100
⇒ 5/9 × 4 = R
∴ R = 20/9%

6.

Simple multiplication 3 × 25 = 75. Bracket takes priority over division, multiplication, addition or subtraction.
Hence, (3 × 25 ) ÷ 5 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 75 ÷ 5 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 15 - 20 × 4 + 75.
Multiplication takes priority over addition or subtraction.
Hence, 15 - 20 × 4 + 75 = 15 - 80 + 75.
Hence, 15 - 80 + 75 = 90 - 80 = 10

7.

Let Mohit’s original salary be 100
Rahul’s original salary (being 40% more than Mohit’s salary) = 100 + (40% of 100) = 100 + 40 = 140
If Rahul’s salary is now increased by 60%, then Rahul’s new salary = 140 + (60% of 140) = 140 + 84 = 224
If Mohit’s salary is decreased by 20%, then Mohit’s new salary = 100 - (20% of 100) = 100 - 20 = 80
To find Rahul’s salary is how much percentage of Mohit’s salary
⇒ 224 = ? % of 80
⇒ ? = (224/80) × 100% = 2.8 × 100% = 280%
∴ Required Percentage = 280%
8.

Let the C. P. of the article be Rs. xx
According to question,
425 - x = x – 355
2x = 425 + 355 = 780
x  = 780/2
x = 390

9.

Let the cost price of each book be Rs. 1.
C. P. of 20 books = Rs. 20
S.P. of 20 books = C. P. of 25 books = Rs. 25
Profit percent =[25−20]/20 × 100 = 25%

10.
∵ Average weight of P and Q is 32 kg
⇒ Sum of their weight = 2 × 32 = 64
⇒ P + Q = 64 kg (1)
Similarly,
Q + R = 86 kg (2)
P + R = 102 kg (3)
Adding equation (1), (2) and (3)
2P + 2Q + 2R = 64 + 86 + 102 = 252
⇒ P + Q + R = 126 kg
∴ Average weight of P, Q and R = (P + Q + R)/3 = 126/3 = 42 kg
