Previous year solved Questions:

1. 89% of ? + 365 = 1075.22

A) 798                   B) 897                    C) 898                    D) 752                   E) None of these

Ans: A

Solution: 89% of X = 1075.22 – 365 = 710.22

=> (89 / 100) * X = 710.22

=>X =(710.22 * 100) / 89 = 798

2. The difference between 78% of a number and 59% of the same number is 323. What is 62% of that number?

A) 1054                 B) 1178                 C) 1037                 D) 1159                 E) None of these

Ans: A

Solution: According to given data,

=> (78 – 59) % of X = 323

=> (19 * X) / 100 = 323

=> X = 1700

But we need to calculate 62% 1700 = 1054

3. Kiran spends 25% of his monthly income on household expenses. His annual income is Rs. 4.32 lac. What is the total amount that Kiran spends on household expenses in 8 months together?

A) Rs. 74000        B) Rs. 71000        C) Rs. 73000        D) Rs. 72000        E) None of these

Ans: D

Solution: Annual Household expenses = {25% of 4.32 * 10 power 5}

=> (25 * 4.32 * 10 power 3)

Therefore household expenses for 8 months = {(25 * 4.32) / 12 * 8 * 10 power 3} = 72000/-

4. In an examination, it is required to get 296 marks out of aggregate marks to pass. A student gets 222 marks and is declared failed by 10% marks. What are maximum aggregate marks a student can get?

A) 830                   B) 810                    C) 780                    D) 740                   E) None of these

Ans: D

Solution: Given data, assume maximum aggregate marks = X say

So, 10% of X = 296 – 222

=>  10% of X = 74

=> X = 74 * 10 = 740
