Ravi's salary was reduced by 25%.Percentage increase to be effected to bring the salary to the original level is

A33 1/3 %

B20%

C25%

D30%

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Method: 1
Let's assume Ravi salary = 100
It get reduced by 25% => Salary = 75
75(1 + P/100) = 100
1+ P/100 = 4/3
P = 100/3 = 33 1/3%.

Method: 2

You can use directly formula i.e
[(R*100)/(100-R)]% Where 'R' is decresed %
so put 25 at place of 'R'
=> [(25 * 100)/(100 - 25)]% => [(25 *100)/75]%
=>100/3% = 33 1/3%

Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg

A20

B30

C40

D50

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

1. Given fresh fruit has 68% water,
=> Remaining 32% will be fruit content.
2. Given Dry fruit has 20% water
=> Remaining 80% is fruit content.

Here assume weight of dry fruit = x kg.
"fruit content in both the fresh fruit and dry fruit is the same"
Fruit % in fresh-fruit = fruit% in dry-fruit
so (32/100) * 100 = (80/100 )* x
=> x = 40 kg.

Ram donated 4% of his income to a charity and deposited 10% of the rest in a Bank. if now he has Rs 8640 left with him, then his income is

ARs. 12500

BRs. 12000

CRs. 10500

DRs. 10000

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let Ram's Income = Rs. 100.
Donation to charity = Rs. 4
Amount deposited in bank = (96 * l0)/100 = Rs. 9.6
Savings = (100 - 13.6) = Rs. 86.4
so Rs. 86.4 = 100
=> Rs. 8640 = (100/86.4) * 8640 = Rs. 10000
