1. A bat ate 1050 dragon flies on four consecutive nights. Each night she ate 25 more than on the night before. How many did she eat on first night?

(a) 225

(b) 250

(c) 275

(d) 300

(b) 250

(c) 275

(d) 300

Sol: (a) Let no. of dragonflies ate by bat an
first day = x

and second
day = x + 25 third day = x + 50 fourth day
= x + 75

A/Q x + x
+ 25 + x + 50 + x + 75 = 1050 x = 224

6. A milkman mixes 20 liters of water with 80 liters of milk. After selling one-fourth of this mixture he adds water to replenish the quantity that he has sold. What is the current proportion of water to milk?

(a) 3:2 (b) 2:3 (c) 3: 4 (d) 4:5

Sol: (b) Total Mixture = 20 + 80 = 100 litres

Sold mixture = ¼ × 100 = 25
litres

Replacing mixture = 75
litres Added water = 25
litres.

Water mixed in 100 litres
mixture = 20 litres ;

water mixed in 75 litres
mixture = 20/100 x 75 = 15 litres

Total water added = 25 + 15
= 40 ; Total mixture = 100 Milk = 100 – 40 = 60.

; Water Milk = 40 : 60=2 : 3

; Water Milk = 40 : 60=2 : 3
