45. A boy buys 18 sharpeners (brown or white) for Rs. 100. For every white sharpener, he pays one rupee more than the brown sharpener. What is the cost of white sharpener & how much did he buy?

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Assume that he bought b, brown sharpeners and w, white sharpeners and the cost of brown sharpener is x and white sharpener is x + 1

So w(x+1) + bx = 100

w + b = 18

b = 18 - w

Substituting in equation 1, we get w(x+1) + (18 -w)x = 100 so w + 18 x = 100

Take option 1: If white sharpners are 13, x = (100 - 13) /18 = 4.833

Option 2, If white sharpeners are 10, x = (100 - 10)/18 = 5 So white sharpeners cost is 6.

Option 3 Satisfies this condition.

fathers age=5x

4 years back, so (x-4)=(5x-4)

then father was 9 times older than son so, 9(x-4)=(5x-4).....(1)

solving eqn (1), x=8

and fathers age =8*5=40 years

48. Three men rent a farm for Rs. 7000 per annum. A puts 110 cows in the farm for 3 months, B puts 110 cows for 6 months and C puts 440 cows for 3 months. What percentage of the total expenditure should A pay?

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

A:B:C=110*3:110*6:440*3 = 3:6:12 = 1:2:4

share of A = 1/(1+2+4) * 7000 = 1000

% expenditure of A = 1000/7000 *100 = 100/7 = 14.28%

49. The cost price of two types of tea are Rs. 180 per kg and Rs. 200 per kg respectively. On mixing them in the ratio 5:3, the mixture is sold at Rs. 210 per kg . In the whole transaction, the gain percent is

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Mixing ratio=5:3

1st type tea=5/8

2nd type of tea=3/8

therefore 1 kg of mixed tea price/kg=>180*(5/8)+200*(3/8)=187.5.

total profit=210-187.5=22.5

therefore % of profit=(22.5/187.5)*100=12%

50. A circular tent is cylindrical to a height of 3 meters and conical above it. If its diameter is 105 m and the slant height of conical portion is 53m, calculate the length of the canvas 5 m wide to make the required tent?

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

Surface area of Tent= surface area of the cylinder + surface area of the cone

=(2*pi*r*h)+ (pi*r*l)

=2*(22/7)*(105/2)*3+(22/7)*(105/2)*53

=9735 sq.m

l*b=9735

b=5m,

l=9735/5 => l=1947m
