Answer 1. (D) − 2000

Explanation:

(14.28% of 120)2 + ?% of 18.87 = − 37.08

(15% of 120)2 + ?% of 19 = − 37

182 + ?% of 19 = − 37

324 + ?% of 19 = − 37

?% of 19 = − 37 − 324

?% of 19 = − 361

? = − 361 ÷ 19 × 100

? = − 1900 ≈ − 2000

Answer 2. (B) 8

Explanation:

[195.7 × 49.02 ÷ 699.8% of 64.031/3 ] × 17.9 = ?2

[196 × 49 ÷ 700% of 641/3 ] × 18 = ?2

14 × 7 ÷ (7 × 4) × 18 = ?2

63 = ?2

? = 7.93 ≈ 8

Answer 3. (C) 60

Explanation:

321.08 × 9.93 + 3 × 123.98 = ?− 387.05

321 × 10 + 3 × 124 = ?− 387

3210 + 372 + 387 = ?

3969 = ?

? = 63 ≈ 60

Answer 4. (D) 50

Explanation:

(327.96 × ?) ÷ 188.03 = 60% of 136

(328 × ?) ÷ 188 = 60% of 136

(328 × ?) ÷ 188 = 81.6

? = 81.6 × 188 ÷ 328

? = 46.7 ≈ 50

Answer 5. (B) 7

Explanation:

 243.96 + 3.13 − 101.98 11.1% of 65
= ?1/2
 244 + 3 − 102 11% of 65
= ?1/2
 145 7.15
= ?1/2
 145 7
= ?1/2

2.7 = ?1/2

? = (2.7)2

? = 7.29 ≈ 7
