**ANSWERS WITH EXPLANATION:**

- 4/5

[Explanation: 2/3 = 10/15 (multiply by 5 both in the numerator and denominator)

4/5 = 12/15 (multiply by 3 both in the numerator and denominator)

Since 12/15 > 10/15, 4/5 > 2/3.] - 2.4

[Explanation: 12/5 = 24/10 (multiply by 2 both in the numerator and denominator)

24/10 = 2.4] - 1.407
- 0.4321
- 50

[Explanation: 5 x 5 – 5 + 5 x 5 + 5 = 25 – 5 + 25 + 5 = 50] - 20

[Explanation: Let the numbers be 2x and 3x.

LCM = 6x = 60 (given)

x = 60/6 = 10

Smallest number = 2x = 2 x 10 = 20] - 9%

[Explanation: Simple Interest = PRT/100

Given I = 180, P = 2000, T = 1 year

180 = 2000 x R x 1/100 = 20 R

R = 180/20 = 9%] - 30

[Explanation: Sum of 10 numbers = 10 x 30 = 300

Sum of 11 numbers = 300 + 30 = 330

New average = 330 / 11 = 30] - 64

[Explanation: Let age of B be x.

Age of A = 2x

Difference = 2x – x = 32

x = 32

Age of A = 2 X 32 = 64. - 5/10.

[Explanation: 50% = 50/100 = 5/10]
