__SOLUTIONS:-__

**Sol 1.** (a) The middle number = sum of first six number + sum of last six number – sum of all 11 numbers = (6 × 36) + (6 × 42) – (11 × 40)

= 216 + 252 – 440 = 28

**Sol 2.** (d) Arranging heights in ascending order 162, 163, 165, 172, 180, 180, 181

Median = n+1/2 th term (for n = odd)

Hence median = 172 (4th term)

**Sol 3.** (d) Let the three consecutive integers be x, x + 1 and x + 2 respectively.

3𝑥 + 3 = 30 ⇒ 𝑥 = 9

Largest integer = x + 2 = 9 + 2= 11

**Sol 4.** (a) Effect = 20 – 10 – 20 ×10/100

= 20 – 10 – 2 = 8

Here 8 is +ive, so 8% increase

**Sol 5.** (b) A → 15 day

B → 25 day

A + B → 1/15 + 1/25 = 8/75

(A + B) can do work in 75/8 days

**Sol 6.** (b) Let the man’s age be 31 x years and that of his son be 13x years.

ATQ, 31x + 13x = 2 × 44

44𝑥 = 88 ⇒ 𝑥 = 88/44 = 2

Son’s age = 13x = 13 × 2 = 26 years

**Sol 7. **(d) Speed of train = Length of (train + platform)/Time taken to cross the platform

Speed of train is unknown. Hence, length can’t be determined.

**Sol 8.** (d) Actual cost price of cloth = Rs. (950 + 300) = Rs. 1250

To gain 30%, S.P. = Rs. (130/100 × 1250) = Rs. 1625

**Sol 9.** (c) 5 chairs + 8 tables = Rs. 6574

∴ 10 𝑐ℎ𝑎𝑖𝑟𝑠 + 16 𝑡𝑎𝑏𝑙𝑒𝑠 = 6574 × 2 = 𝑅𝑠. 13148

**Sol 10.** (a) 20 persons do a job in → 8 day

1 person do a job in → 8 × 20 day

16 persons do a job → 8×20 16 = 10 days
