CCQT Model Questions paper – Quants

Ques 1. Amina sells a TV at a profit of 25%. Had she sold it at a profit of 25% of the selling price, her profit would have increased by 5% of the cost price plus Rs. 150. What is the cost price of the TV?

  1. 13000
  2. 12480
  3. 12000
  4. 10800

Ans: Let CP= x Profit in 1st care = x*25/100 = (¼)x

(¼)x = x* (s/100) + 150 = 12000

Ques 2. Amina marks the price of an article 40% above the cost price. If she changes the discount from 5% to 10%, the profit would decrease by Rs. 14. How much profit would she earn, if she gives a discount of 20% on the marked price?

  2. 34
  3. 30
  4. 24

Ans: Let CP = 100, MP=140

Diff. between profit sold at 5% and 10% = (140*5/100) = 7

When diff = 7, then CP = 100

14———–100*14/7 = 200 =MP

Discount = 20%

SP = (280*80/100) = 24

Profit = 24

  1. 24 lakh
  2. 12 lakh
  3. 18 lakh
  4. 6 lakh

Ans: A:3x, B = x

Ratio of profit = 3:1

Gross profit = Rs 30,00,000

share of B working part new = 12*50000 = 600000

Remaining profit = 24,00,000
