**Answer key**

1. (C) 2. (C) 3. (C) 4. (B) 5. (A) 6. (A) 7. (E) 8. (B) 9. (B) 10. (E)

###
**Explanation**

1. ¾ = 0.75

5/6 = 0.833

4/5 = 0.8

So, 4/5 is greater than ¾ and smaller then 5/6.

2. Profit =

3. Let the length of the x and Width y.

x. y = A

Now, Consider decrements t in width = P %

100 – P = 400/5

100 – 80 = P

P = 20 %

4. Compound interest

= 12500[(1.06)

^{4}– 1]
= 12500[1.2624 – 1] = 12500 × 0.2624

= Rs. 3280.962

5. 83 × 83 = 6889

84 × 84 = 7056

Required number = 7056 -7000 = 56

6. CP of bracelet

7. Required average

8. Taking HCF of 882, 396 and 1404

882 = 2 × 3 × 7 × 3 × 7

396 = 3 × 3 × 2 × 2 × 11

1404 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 13

HCF = 3 × 3 × 2 = 18

9.

= 3080 × 1.07 × 1.07 × 1.07 = Rs. 3773

CI = 3773 – 3080 = Rs. 693

10. Total cost of the plot

Rate per square feet
