**Answers :**

**1) Answer: D**

**2) Answer: B**

**3) Answer: A**

Increased average age = 32 + (12.5% of 32) = 32 + 4 = 36

The average age of Five members of family = 36

So, age = 36 × 5

Weight of fifth person = 180 – 128 = 52

**4) Answer: B**

**5) Answer: C**

310 – x = x – 230

x = 270

**6) Answer: A**

So, Q : P : R

5 : 6

3 : 5

So, the value of R = 300

**7) Answer: D**

**8) Answer: A**

**9) Answer: B**

Sol. Let the speed of bus is ‘s’.

st = 48 ______(i)

(s + 4) (t – 1) = 48 _______(ii)

st + 4t – s – 4 = st

Put t value from (i)

So, speed = 12 km/hr

**10) Answer: B**

2 times sum compounded interest = 7 year

Then 8 times of the sum ⇒

⇒ 2 × 2 × 2 = 7 + 7 + 7 = 21 year
