Q4. A Man Takes 55 Hours 4545 Min In Walking To A Certain Place And Riding Back. He Would Have Gained 22 Hours By Riding Both Ways. The Time He Would Take To Walk Both Ways Is

Given that time taken for riding both ways will be 22 hours lesser than the time needed for waking one way and riding back.

Therefore,

time needed for riding one way = time needed for waking one way - 22 hours

Given that time taken in walking one way and riding back =5=5 hours 45 min

Hence, the time he would take to walk both ways

=5=5 hours 45 min + 22 hours

=7=7 hours 45 min

Q5. Two Liquids Are Mixed In The Proportion Of 3:2 And The Mixture Is Sold At $11 Per Liter At A 10% Profit. If The First Liquid Costs $2 More Per Liter Than The Second, What Does It Cost Per Liter ?

Given two liquids proportion as 3:2

from the mixtures: 

Suppose second liquid cost = $x, then first liquid = $(x+2)

(x-10)/(10-x-2) = 3/2

2x-20 = 24-3x

5x = 44

x=8.8

so first liquid cost is x+2 = 8.80+2 = $10.80

Hence, x can only be 1 giving y = 5kg

Q14. A 10 Liter Mixture Of Milk And Water Contains 30 Percent Water. Two Liters Of This Mixture Is Taken Away. How Many Liters Of Water Should Now Be Added So That The Amount Of Milk In The Mixture Is Doub

Two liters were taken away So we have the only 8L of the mixture. 

Amount of milk in 8 L of mixture = 8 * 70% = 5.6 liters

Amount of water in 8 L of mix = (8 - 5.6) = 2.4 L. 

Half of milk i.e half of 5.6 = 2.8 L. 

We need (2.8 - 2.4)L water more = 0.4 L

Q15. Thirty Liters Of Water Is Added To 150 Litres Of 20% Solution Of Alcohol In Water.the Resulting Strength Of Alcohol Is

Q22. Two Vessels A And B Contain Spirit And Water Mixed In The Ratio 5:2 And 7:6 Respectively. Find The Ratio In Which These Mixture Be Mixed To Obtain A New Mixture In Vessel C Containing Spirit And Water

Let's assume C.P. of spirit = Re. 1 per litre.

Spirit in 1 litre mix. of A = 5/7 litre. So C.P of 1 litre mix in A = Re. 5/7.

Spirit in 1 litre mix. of B = 7/13 litre. So C.P of 1 litre mix in B = Re. 7/13.

Spirit in 1-litre mix. of C = 8/13 litre. So C.P. of 1 litre mix in C = Re. 8/13.

By rule of an allegation, we have required ratio X:Y.

(5/7) (7/13)

(8/13)

(1/13) (9/91)

So, required ratio = 1/13 : 9/91 = 7:9.

Q23. There Are Two Bottles A And B, Each Filled With Milk And Water In The Ratio 5:3 And 1:2 Respectively. A New Mixture Is Formed By Mixing The Contents Of A And B In The Ratio 4:3.what Is The Ratio Of Co

Bottle A mixture: milk = 5/8 & water=3/8

Bottle B mixture: milk = 1/3 & water=2/3

Given New mixture (Bottle A & B) ratio = 4:3 

Now milk ratio = (5/8*4/7) + (1/3*3/7) = 1/2

and water = (3/8*4/7) + (2/3*3/7) = 1/2

So, New mixture ratio milk : water = 1 : 1

Q24. A Person Crosses A 600600 Metre Long Street In 55 Minutes. What Is His Speed In Km Per Hour ?
