1. 10
[Explanation: 250x = 2500
x = 2500/250 = 10.]
2. 51, all other numbers are prime numbers.
3. 25%
[Explanation: Per cent of students who are absent = 8 x 100/32 = 25%]
4. 20%
[Explanation: Per cent of mangoes = 100 – (50 + 30) = 100 – 80 = 20%]
5. 23
[Explanation: Here we need to find the LCM of 6, 9 and 18.
LCM of 6,9,18 is 18. So add 5 to 18, we will get 23.

6. 76
[Explanation: Arrange the given numbers in ascending order.
21, 32, 45, 76, 76, 90, 98.
Middle number is the median, so median = 76]
7. 20

8. 200
[Explanation: Amount given to Manu = 600 x 1/3 = Rs 200]

Cost of 1 notebook = 312/12 = 26
Cost of 4 notebooks = 26 x 4 = Rs 104.]
10. 13 years
[Explanation: Let Mohan’s age be x.
Mohan’s father’s age = 5 + 3x = 44 (given)
3x = 44 – 5 = 39
x = 39/3 = 13]
