C.   Rs. 22,950         D.   Rs. 26,150

Answer:  Option C

Explanation:

Let the amount of Royalty to be paid for these books be Rs. r
Then, 20:15 = 30600:r       
            r = Rs. 30600 x 15    = Rs. 22,950.
                              20

C.   54º          D.   48º


Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Central angle corresponding to Royalty          = 15% of 360º

                                                             =  15    x 360º
                                                                100

                                                             = 54º.
3)

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Clearly, marked price of the book = 120% of C.P.
Also, cost of paper = 25% of C.P
Let the cost of paper for a single book be Rs. n.
Then,                120: 25 = 180: n         
                                       n = Rs.  25 x 180 = Rs. 37.50
                                                     120

C.  Rs. 175.00            D.  Rs. 180.00
 

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

For the publisher to earn a profit of 25%, S.P. = 125% of C.P.
Also Transportation Cost = 10% of C.P.
Let the S.P. of 5500 books be Rs. x.
Then,         10 : 125 = 82500 : x         
                                x = Rs.   125 x 82500   = Rs. 1031250.
                                                  10

 S.P. of one book = Rs. 1031250   = Rs. 187.50
                                      5500
 
5)

A.  5.0%            B. 33.5%
 C.  20.0%          D.  25.0%


Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Printing Cost of book = 20% of C.P.
Royalty on book = 15% of C.P.
Difference = (20% of C.P.) - (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.
 Percentage difference     =     Difference    x 100%
                                              Printing Cost

                                         =      5% of C.P.     x 100%
                                                Printing Cost

                                            =     25%.
