Answers:

1. (5)
The series is ×2-1, ×4-3, ×6-5, ×8-7, ×10-9,…..

2. (4)
The series is +6^3+7^3+8^3+9^3+〖10〗^3,……..

3. (2)
The series is 50×0.5=25, 25×1.5=37.5, 37.5 ×2.5 =93.75, 93.75×3.5=328.125, 328.125×4.5=1476.5625

4. (1)
468+516=984; 516+984=1500; 984+1500=2484; 1500+2484=3984 

5. (3)
The series is 11×3-3=30, 30×3-3=87, 87×3-3=258, 258×3-3=771, 771×3-3=2310

6. (2)
As the distance is covered in Arithmetic Progression,
Sum= n/2 [2a+(n-1)d] 
[Here, a=30, d=2, n=10]
=10/2 [2×30+(10-1)2]
=5×(60+18)=5×[78]=390 km

7. (1)
Reqd. Ratio of Profit
       Gita       : Kanchan    :    Rekha
60000×36 : 90000×30 : 135000×24
=4 : 5 : 6

8. (2)
Cost of 26T+6C=Rs. 13800………(i)
Cost of 13T+7C=Rs. 14200……….(ii)
Now, equation (ii) ×26-equation (i) ×13
338T + 182C= 369200
338T +   78C=179400
–         –
104C = 189800
∴ C=189800/104=1825
∴ Cost of chair=1825×10=Rs.18250

9. (2)

10. (3)
Rohit’s marks=85
Monika’s marks=85-10=75
Rahul’s marks=75+55=130
Arun’s marks=130-35=95
Raju’s marks=95+44=139
Total maximum marks=139+61=200

Required percentage marks of Raju=139/200×100=69.5%≈70%
