1: (b) Let the total no. of candidates =  x
So, (50x-100 (90-60)) / x = 45
x = 600

2: (c) 6th result = (58*6+63*6-60*11)=66

3: (d) We don't have the number of boys and girls.

4: (d) Let no. of non- officers be x
15 * 460 + x * 110 = (x + 15) 120
x = 510

5: (d) Let the average after 17th inning = x.
Then, average after 16th inning =(x-3).
=> 16(x-3)+87= 17x or x=(87-48)= 39.

6: (c) 2, 4, 6, ………… 100
Average = (1st No. + Last No.) /2 = (2+100)/2 = 51

7: (d)     I + II + III=83×3=249
III + IV + V =97×3=291
I to V =92×5=460
III =460-(249+291)=80

8:Total age of husband and wife (at the time of their marriage) = 2 × 23 = 46
Total age of husband and wife after 5 years + Age of the 1 year old child
= 46 + 5 + 5 + 1 = 57
Average age of the family =
57/3=19

9: (b) digit*(n+1)/2
=7*(20+1)/2=73.5

10: 13(10+1)/2=71.5
