(A) 15%

(B) 12%

(C) 20%

(D) 25%

(E) 10%

Explanation:

Pipe M, N and O’s 10-hour work = 1

Pipe M, N and O’s 4-hour work = 4/10 = 2/5

Remain Part = 1 – 2/5

= 3/5

Pipe M and O can fill the 3/5th part in 9 hours.

So Pipe M and O can fill the full tank in 9 × 5/3 = 15 hours

Pipe N can fill the tank in 1 hour = 1/10 – 1/15 = 1/30

So Pipe N can fill the full tank in 30 hours.

Explanation:

Total salary of 5 friends = 5 × 25000 = Rs 125000

Let the salary of 6th friend = Rs x

According to the question,

125000 + x = 6 × 25000

X = 150000 – 125000

X = Rs 25000

Explanation:

S.I. = P × r% × t

4800 = P × 16% × 4

P = 7500

New Principal = 7500 + 2500 = Rs 10000

A = P × (1 +
 r 100
)t
A = 10000 × (1 +
 15 100
)2

A = 13225

Compound Interest = 13225 – 10000

= Rs 3225

Explanation:

Train can cross a pole in 27 seconds

So the Speed of the train = 270/27 = 10 m/s

Let the length of platform = x meter

S = D/t

10 = (270 + x)/ 51

510 = 270 + x

x = 510 – 270

x = 240 meter

Explanation:

Let the salary = 125 Rs

After raise salary = 154 Rs

Let the First rise = x%

According to the question,

125 × 110% × (100 + x)% = 154

11 (100 + x) / 8 = 154

100 + x = 112

x = 112 – 100

x = 12%
