**SOLUTIONS**

**S1. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**Basic pay = 11925/((100 + 165) )×100

=11925/265×100

= Rs. 4500

**S2. Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**Let the salary = 100 units

savings = 20%

savings = 100 ×20/100 = 20 units

Expenditure = (100 – 20) = 80 units

80 units = Rs. 6000

1 unit = Rs. 75

Savings = 75 × 20

= Rs. 1500

**S3. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**Population of town = 3,11,250

Number of women in town = 311250/((43 + 40) )× 43 = 161250

Number of literate women = 161250 ×24/100 = 38700

Number of men in the town = 311250/((43 + 40))× 40 = 150000

Number of literate men in town = 150000 ×((100 – 10))/100

= 150000 ×90/100 = 135000

Total literate persons in town = (38700 + 135000)

= 173700

**S4. Ans.(c)**

**Sol.**Total number of employees

=27600/((100-31))×100=27600/69×100

= 40,000

**S5. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**No. of females = 25000 ×1/5

= 5000

No. of Males = 25000 – 5000

= 20000

No. of educated females = 5000 ×60/100

= 3000

No. of educated males = 20000 ×95/100

= 19000

Total educated population = 22000

Percentage of educated population = 22000/25000× 100

= 88%

**S7. Ans.(b)**

**Sol.**Price after discount = (180 × 80)/100

= Rs. 144

Price of 1 pair of socks

= Rs. 144/12 = Rs. 12

Required number of pairs

= 48/12 = 4 pairs
