Two bus tickets from city A to B and three tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 77 but three tickets from city A to B and two tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 73. What are the fares for cities B and C from A ?

ARs. 4, Rs. 23

BRs. 13, Rs. 17

CRs. 15, Rs. 14

DRs. 17, Rs. 13

Explanation:

Let Rs. x be the fare of city B from city A and Rs. y be the fare of city C from city A.

Then, 2x + 3y = 77 ...(i) and

3x + 2y = 73 ...(ii)

Multiplying (i) by 3 and (ii) by 2 and subtracting, we get: 5y = 85 or y = 17.

Putting y = 17 in (i), we get: x = 13.

In a class, 20% of the members own only two cars each, 40% of the remaining own three cars each and the remaining members own only one car each. Which of the following statements is definitely true from the given statements ?

AOnly 20% of the total members own three cars each.

B48% of the total members own only one car each.

C60% of the total members own at least two cars each.

D80% of the total members own at least one car.

Explanation:

Let total number of members be 100,

Then, number of members owning only 2 cars = 20.

Number of members owning 3 cars = 40% of 80 = 32.

Number of members owning only 1 car = 100 - (20 + 32) = 48.

Thus, 48% of the total members own one car each.
