On her birthday Priyanka equally distributed chocolates among her 120 classmates. But on that day 15 of her classmates were absent. Thus each friend got 4 extra chocolates. How many chocolates did each friend get?

Answer: Option [D]

Let the number of chocolates each child got is x

Then, 120x/105 - x = 4

= (120x-105x)/105 = 4

= 15x = 420

So, x = 28

Thus each classmate got 28 + 4 = 32 chocolates

There are some owls and some lions in a forest. If the total number of heads in the forest is 1460 and total number of legs is 4580. What is the total number of owls in the forest?

Answer: Option [A]

Let us take the total number of owls is = x

and total number of lions is = y

Then, x + y = 1460 --------(i)

We know that a owl has 2 legs and a lion has 4 legs.

So, the total number of legs of owl is = 2x

and the total number of legs of lion is = 4x

So, 2x + 4x = 4580 --------(ii)

Solving the equation (i) and (ii) we get,

x = 630 and y = 830

So the total number of owls is = 630

Answer: Option [C]

On the second day he spend Rs. 250. i.e. he earns Rs. 70

On the third day he again earn Rs. 320 and spend Rs. 70. Thus he save Rs. 70 again.

Thus it is seen that he save Rs. 70 in every 2 days.

So, he earn Rs. 1050 in 1050/70 x 2 = 30 days.
