(A) 140
(B) 150
(C) 160
(D) 170
32. An article was sold for Rs.360 after a 25 percent discount. What was the actual price of the article in rupess?
(A) 470
(B) 480
(C) 490
(D) 500
33. The length of the sides of the parallelogram is given in centimeters. What is the area in cm2 of the given parallelogram? (A) 20
(B) 22
(C) 24
(D) 26

31. (C) First convert from English to Mathematics 32. (B) The article was sold after 25% discount. Hence, the given price Rs.360 is 75% of the actual price. So, 33. (C) We can calculate the height of the parallelogram (the dotted line) by using Pythagoras formula, (Hypotenuses)2 = (Perpendicular)2 + (Base)2
52 = (Height)2 + 32 ∵Perpendicular of Triangle = Height of Parallelogram
(Height)2 = 16
Height = 4
Now, Area of Parallelogram = base × height
= 3×4
= 12 cm2
34. (D) $n$ books → $r$ rupees $m$ books → $x$ rupees
By cross multiplication, we have $nx=mr$ $x=\frac{mr}{n}$
35. (A) Let $n$ be the common factor. So, $8n-3n = 25$ ⇒ $5n=25$ ⇒ $n=5$. Hence, $8n=8(5)=40$ and $3n=3(5)=15$. Thus, the two numbers are: 40 and 15.
