As per the question
There are 5 portions ( 4 small portions of equal size of one half and one half of original ice-cream brick.)
1 small portion = 12 grams
4 small portion = 4*12 = 48grams
Therefore weight of original ice-cream brick = 48*2 = 96grams

25. Silu and Meenu were walking on the road. Silu said,

Explanation:

Given that Meenu weighs 29 Kgs plus half of her own weight.
It means that 29 Kgs is the other half. So she weighs 58 Kgs.
Solving mathematically, let's assume that her weight is A Kgs.
A = 29 + A/2
2*A = 58 + A
A = 58 Kgs.

26. Anand packs 304 marbles into packets of 9 or 11 so that no marble is left. Anand wants to maximize the number of bags with 9 marbles. How many bags does he need if there should be atleast one bag with 11 marbles

Explanation:

Given 9x + 11y = 304.
x = (304?11y)/9 = 33 + (7?2y)/9 + y
So y = - 1 satisfies. Now x = 35,
Now other solutions of this equation will be like this. Increase or decrease x by 11, decrease or increase y by 9. So we have to maximize x. next solution is x = 24 and y = 8. So bags required are 32.

29. There is a lot of speculation that the economy of a country depends on how fast people spend their money in addition to how much they save. Auggie was very curious to test this theory.Auggie spent all of his money in 5 stores. In each store, he spent Rs.4 more than one-half of what he had when he went in. How many rupees did Auggie have when he entered the first store?

Explanation:

As he has spent all his money, He must spend Rs.8 in the final store.
a simple equation works like this. Amount left = 1/2 x?4
For fifth store this is zero. So x = 8. That means he entered fifth store with 8.
Now for fourth store, amount left = 8 so 1/2 x?4=8=> x = 24
For third store, amount left = 24 so 1/2 x?4=24=> x = 56
For Second store, amount left = 56 so 1/2 x?4=56=> x = 120
For first store, amount left = 120 so 1/2 x?4=120=> x = 248
So he entered first store with 248.

30. A monkey climbs 6 mts and falls 3mts in alternate minutes.Then time taken to climb a tree 60 metres high?

Explanation:

A monkey climbs 6 mts and falls 3 mts in alternate minutes.
=> A monkey climbs 6 mts in first minute and falls 3 mts in next minute.
In 2 minutes, it will move up by 6-3=3 metres.
Effectively, In 1 min, it will move by 5 mtrs.
It will move 54 mtrs in 54/5 = 36 mins.
Next 6 mtrs will be covered in 37th min.
so total time required = 37 mins.
