@SujataPatil @caemento difficulty level on a scale of 1 to 5(1 = very easy, 5 = very difficult)

A report consists of 20 sheets each of 55 lines and each such line consists of 65 characters. This report is reduced onto sheets each of 65 lines such that each line consists of 70 characters. The percentage reduction in number of sheets is closest to (difficulty level: 1)

(a) 20%

(b) 5%

(c) 30%

(d) 35%

A person who has a certain amount with him goes to market. He can buy 50 oranges or 40 mangoes. He retains 10% of the amount for taxi fares and buys 20 mangoes and of the balance, he purchases oranges. Number of oranges he can purchase is (easy but picked for faster interpretation)

2/5th of the voters promise to vote for A and the rest promised to vote for B. Of these, on the last day 15% of the voters went back of their promise to vote for A and 25% of voters went back of their promise to vote for B, and A lost by 200 votes. Then, the total number of voters is (easy but picked for faster interpretation)

20% of x is 50% of y, then wat is x% of y

@caemento The number of votes not cast for the PNC Party increased by 25% in the National General Election over those not cast for it in the previous Assembly Polls, and the PNC Party lost by a majority twice as large as that by which it had won the Assembly Polls. If a total 2,60,000 people voted each time, how many voted for the PNC Party in the previous Assembly Polls?

@caemento @SujataPatil **A, B, C and D share a loot. A gets a% of the total. B gets b% of the remaining (after A has taken his share). C gets c% of the remaining and D gets the rest. D gets a% less than what A gets, B and C get equal amounts. b = 2a. **

**1. What percentage of what A got did C get?**

**2. If the total amount is equal to Rs. 1000, what is the difference between what A got and what D got?**

**An alloy of copper and aluminum has 40% copper. An alloy of Copper and Zinc has Copper and Zinc in the ratio 2: 7. These two alloys are mixed in such a way that in the overall alloy, there is more aluminum than Zinc, and copper constitutes x% of this alloy. What is the range of values x can take?**

A. 30% ≤ x ≤ 40% B. 32.5% ≤ x ≤ 42% C. 33.33% ≤ x ≤ 40% D. 32.5% ≤ x ≤ 40%

@caemento @SujataPatil A merchant can buy goods at the rate of Rs. 30 per good. The particular good is part of an overall collection and the value is linked to the number of items that are already on the market. So, the merchant sells the first good for Rs. 3, second one for Rs. 6, third for Rs. 9…and so on. If he wants to make an overall profit of at least 40%, what is the minimum number of goods he should sell?

@caemento @SujataPatil **P is x% more than Q. Q is (x - 10)% less than R. If P > R, what is the range of values x can take?**

A. 10% to 28% B. 10% to 25% C. 10% to 37% D. 10% to 43%
