**Q.1**

**72 : 108 :: 84 : ? :: 102 : 153**

##### 1. 144

2. 126

3. 117

4. 135

##### Correct Answer is **Option 2. i.e. 126**

##### 12 × 6 = 72, 12 × 9 = 108

##### Similarly,

##### 14 × 6 = 84, 14 × 9 = 126

##### 17 × 6 = 102, 17 × 9 = 153

##### Hence, ‘126’ is the correct answer.

**Q.2 Shaan has a total Rs. 5,500 with him. He buys product ‘z’ at Rs. 5,000 from this sum and then sells it to another person, thus making a profit of 15% on it. With all the money he has now, he buys product ‘X’ and then sells it to another person making a profit of 25% on it. What is the total money Shaan has now?**

##### 1. Rs. 7, 812.50

##### 2. Rs. 7, 815.50

##### 3. Rs. 6, 325.00

##### 4. Rs. 7, 187.50

**The correct answer is option 1 i.e. Rs. 7, 812.50**

##### Given:

##### Total Amount is Rs. 5,500.

##### Product ‘z’ bought at Rs. 5000.

##### Therefore, the remaining amount is 500.

##### Product ‘z’ sell at 15% profit.

##### SP = 5000quad times quad frac { 115 }{ 100 } =quad 5750quad

##### Now total amount is = 500 + 5750

##### = 6250

##### Now he buys product ‘X’ at Rs. 6250 and then sell it at 25% profit then the total remaining amount

##### = 6250quad times quad frac { 125 }{ 100 } =quad 7812.50quad
