The ratio of the number of boys and girls in a college is 7 : 8. If the percentage increase in the number of boys and girls be 20% and 10% respectively, what will be the new ratio?

A.

8 : 9

B.

17 : 18

C.

21 : 22

D.

Cannot be determined

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Originally, let the number of boys and girls in the college be 7x and 8x respectively.

Their increased number is (120% of 7x) and (110% of 8x).

A number consists of two digits. If the digits interchange places and the new number is added to the original number, then the resulting number will be divisible by:

A.

3

B.

5

C.

9

D.

11

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the ten's digit be x and unit's digit be y.

Then, number = 10x + y.

Number obtained by interchanging the digits = 10y + x.

(10x + y) + (10y + x) = 11(x + y), which is divisible by 11.

A does 80% of a work in 20 days. He then calls in B and they together finish the remaining work in 3 days. How long B alone would take to do the whole work?
