40%
55%
75%
C.
Let the marked price of article be Rs. 100
∴ Cost price of an article for the retailer
Selling price of article would be the (marked price) Rs. 100
∴ Required gain percentage
A mixture contains spirit and water in the ratio of 3 : 2. If it contains 3 litre more than water, the quantity of spirit in the mixture is
12 litre
10 litre
9 litre
8 litre
C.
9 litre
Let the quantity of spirit in the mixture = 3x
quantity of water in the mixture = 2x
According to the question,
3x - 2x = 3; x = 3 litre
∴ Quantity of spirit in the mixture = 3 x 3 = 9 litre
The orthocentre of a triangle is the point where

B.
the altitudes meet
The distance between two places A and B is 60 km. Two cars start at the same time from A and B, travelling at a speed of 35 km/hr and 25 km/hr respectively. If the cars run in the same direction, then they will meet after (in hours):
6.5
6.2
6
6.52
C.
6
As the cars run in the same direction
∴ Relative speed = (35 - 25) km/hr = 10 km/hr
Distance = 60 km
Required time:

The sum of money that will yield ₹ 60/- as simple interest at 6% per annum in 5 years is
₹ 200/-
₹ 225/-
₹ 175/-
₹ 300/-
A.
₹ 200/-
S.I. = ₹ 60
Time (n)= 5 years
R = 6% p.a.
100 S.I. = PRT
100 X 60 = P x 6 x 5
P = ₹ 200/-
If x, y and z are real numbers such that (x - 3)^{2} + (y - 4)^{2} + (z - 5)^{2} = 0, then (x + y + z) is equal to
-12
0
8
12
D.
12
x - 3 = 0 ⟹ x = 3
y - 4 = 0 ⟹ y = 4
z - 5 = 0 ⟹ z = 5
∴ (x + y + z) = (3 + 4 + 5) = 12
