SOLUTIONS

S1. Ans.(b);
Sol.   Quantity of dry fruit (without water) in 100 kg fresh fruit = 32% of 100 = 32 kg
So, req. quantity of dry fruit =(32×100)/80 kg
= 40 kg

S2. Ans.(d);
Sol.       1/A=1/8
and 1/A-1/B=1/20
or 1/B=1/8-1/20=3/40
B takes 40/3min to empty the tank
Capacity of tank =40/3×6 kl = 80 kl

S3. Ans.(a);
Sol.
Let total profit = 100
Profit share of each = A : B : C = 5/14×70+30∶6/14×70∶3/14×70
= 55 : 30 : 15
Difference of profit between A and B + C = 55 – 45 = 10

Total profit =100×20=Rs.2000
