Q 1 - The true discount and the simple interest on a certain sum for a given time and at a given rate are Rs. 240 and Rs. 160 respectively. The sum is:

A - 375

B - 400

C - 430

D - 480

### Explanation

`Sum =( S.I * T.D )/(S.I - T.D)=( 240 * 160 )/(240-160)=480`

Q 2 - Rs. 40 is the true discount on Rs. 520 due after a certain time. What will be the true discount on the same sum due after half of the former time, the rate of interest being the same?

A - Rs. 19.66

B - Rs. 20.66

C - Rs. 21.66

D - Rs. 22.66

### Explanation

```S.I. on Rs. (520 - 40) for a given time = Rs. 40.
S.I. on Rs. 480 for half the time = Rs. 20.
T.D. on Rs. 500 = Rs. 20
T.D. on Rs. 520 =Rs. (  20/480 * 520)= Rs. 21.66 ```

Q 3 - The banker's gain on a bill due 3 year hence at 6% per annum is Rs. 18. The true discount is:

A - Rs.100

B - Rs.75

C - Rs.50

D - Rs.33.33

### Explanation

```T.D=(B.G * 100)/( R * T)
= 18 * 100/( 6 * 3)
= Rs. 100```

Q 4 - The true discount on a bill of Rs. 360 is Rs. 60. The banker's discount is:

A - Rs.72

B - Rs.36

C - Rs.18

D - Rs.6

### Explanation

```P.W.=Rs.(360-60)=Rs.300
SI on Rs.300 =Rs.60
SI on Rs.360 =Rs. (60/300) * 360=Rs.72
B.D. = Rs.72```

Q 5 - The difference between a discount of 20% on Rs. 1000 and two successive discounts of 16% and 4% on the same amount is

A - Rs.6

B - Rs.6.4

C - Rs.6.5

D - Rs. 6.75

### Explanation

```First discount of 20% on 1000=Rs. 200
Second discount = (16% of 1000)+(4% of 84% of 1000)
= (160) + (  4/100 x 84/100 *1000) =Rs. 193.6
Difference=Rs. (200-193.6) =Rs.6.4.```

Q 6 - The genuine markdown on an aggregate due 3 years consequently at 8% p.a. is Rs 252. The total due is:

A - Rs 798

B - Rs 1050

C - Rs 1302

D - None of these

### Explanation

```P.W. = (100*T.D.)/(R*T) = Rs ((100*252))/((8*3)) = Rs 1050
Sum due = (P.W.)+(T.D.) = Rs (1050+252) = Rs 1302```

Q 7 - The genuine rebate on Rs 2580 due after some time at 6% p.a. is Rs 180. After what amount of time is the aggregate due?

A - 5 months

B - 4 months

C - 1 year 3 months

D - 1 year 4 months

### Explanation

```P.W. = Rs (2580-180) = Rs. 2400
S.I. on Rs 2400 at 6% p.a. is Rs. 180
∴ Time = ((100*180))/((2400*6)) years =5/4 years = 1 year 3 months.```

Q 8 - A man needs to offer his old bike. He has two clients. One of them needs to pay Rs 12000 in trade and the other out Rs 13500 payable following 8 months. On the off chance that the rate of hobby is 12% for every annum, which alternative is better for the dealer?

A - Rs 12000 in real money

B - Rs 13500 payable following 8 months

C - both are just as great

D - None of the above

### Explanation

```Cash payment = Rs 12000
P.W. of Rs. 13500 payable after 8 months = Rs ((100*3500))/(100+(12*8/12) )
= Rs ((100*13500))/108=Rs 12500
∴ Rs 13500 payable after 8 months is a better offer```

Q 9 - I purchased a bike for Rs 1056 in real money and sold it around the same time for Rs 1296 payable following 6 months. On the off chance that the rate of hobby is 12% p.a., what amount was my addition?

A - 11.1%

B - 12.25%

C - 13.6%

D - 22.7%

### Explanation

```C.P.  = Rs 1056
S.P. = P.W. of Rs 1296 due 6 months hence
= Rs. (100*1296)/(100+(12*1/2) ) = Rs ((100*1296))/106= 1200
∴ Profit = Rs (1200-1056) = Rs 144
Gain% = (144/1056*100)% = 13.6%```
