Question 1 of 5
1. Question
The owner of a Television shop charges his customer 16% more than the cost price. If a customer paid Rs.17,400 for a Television, then what was the cost price of the television?
Correct
Solution (c)
We can assume Cost Price to be Rs.100.
Then, selling price would be Rs.116 (16% more is charged on the cost price).
So, if in reality selling price is Rs.17,400 then cost price would beRs.15,000.
We could use unitary method to find the value.
S.P. —— C.P.
Rs.116 ——– Rs.100
Rs.1 ———Rs.(100/116)
Rs.17,400 ——Rs.(100/116)* Rs.17,400 which gives C.P. as Rs.15,000

The difference between 42% of a number and 28% of the same number is 210. What is 75% of that number?
Correct
Solution (c)
The difference in percentage is 42%28% = 14%.
So, using unitary method,
If 14% of a number is 210, then 1% of that number will 210/14 which 15.
Therefore, 100% of the number would be 1500.
Question is to find out 75% of the number which is nothing but 75% of 1500 which gives answer as 1125.

Question 5 of 5
5. Question
A 330 meters long train crosses a 300 meters long platform in 18 seconds. What is the speed of the train in kmph?
Correct
Solution (c)
Total distance travelled = 330m + 300m = 630mts
Time taken = 18s
Speed = Distance / Time = 630m/18s = 35m/s
The formula for converting m/s to kmph = speed in m/s * 18/5
Therefore, speed of train in kmph = 35m/s*18/5 = 126kmph.
Incorrect
Solution (c)
Total distance travelled = 330m + 300m = 630mts
Time taken = 18s
Speed = Distance / Time = 630m/18s = 35m/s
The formula for converting m/s to kmph = speed in m/s * 18/5
Therefore, speed of train in kmph = 35m/s*18/5 = 126kmph.
