A - Rs. 7400

B - Rs. 3700

C - Rs. 1750

D - Rs. 925

Let P.W. be Rs. X.
Then, S.I. on Rs. X at 8% for 6 months = Rs. 296.
X*8* (6/12) * (1/100) =296
X= (296*100)/4=7400
P.W. = Rs. 7400.

P.W.=402/1600=1
=>B.D =T.D. + B.G. 
= 40+1 
=41

Q 4 - A man buys a watch for Rs. 2825 in cash and sells it for Rs. 3300 at a credit of 1 year. If the rate of interest is 15% per annum, the man:

A - Rs. 150

B - Rs. 175.

C - Rs. 475

D - Rs. 500

Answer : B

Explanation

S.P. = P.W. of Rs. 3300 due 1 year hence = 3300*100/( 100+(10*1))=Rs.3000
So Gain = Rs. (3000-2825) =Rs. 175.

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.

=Rs ((100*2800)/112)=Rs 2500

Sum due = ((S.I.)*(T.D.))/((S.I.)-(T.D.))=Rs ((85*80))/((85-80))=((85*80))/5= Rs 1360

Q 8 - A man acquired a look for Rs 1950 in real money and sold it for Rs 2160 at a credit of 1 year. On the off chance that the rate of hobby is 8% p.a., then the man has:

A - an increase of Rs 210

B - a addition of Rs 50

C - an addition of Rs 60

D - lost Rs 30

Answer : B

Explanation

C.P. = Rs. 1950
S.P. = P.W. of Rs. 2160 due 1 year hence
= Rs ((100*2160))/(100+(8*1)) = Rs 2000 in cash.
∴ Gain = Rs (2000-1950) = Rs 50

S.I. on Rs (260-20) for a fixed time = Rs 20
S.I. on Rs 240 for half the time = Rs 10
T.D. on Rs 250 = Rs 10
T.D. on Rs 260 = Rs (10/250*260) = Rs 10.40

A - A, Rs 28.50

B - B, Rs 37.50

C - A, Rs 50

D - B, Rs 50

Answer : D

Explanation

P.W. of loan on A = Rs ((100*1573))/(100+(14*2/3) )= Rs ((100*1573))/121= Rs 1300
P.W. of loan on B = Rs ((100*1444.50))/(100+(14*1/2) )= Rs ((144450))/103= Rs 1350
So, B will pay Rs. 50
