### Answer : C

### 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

### Answer : A

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

### Answer : B

### 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:

### Answer : C

### 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?

### Answer : C

### 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?

### Answer : B

### 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?

### Answer : C

### 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%
