previous day by Re. 1 per kg and remains constant throughout the day. On Sunday, the price of apples was Rs.10 per kg. The price of apples on the subsequent Saturday was Rs.12 per kg. Each of them started with Rs.1000 and 100 kg of apples.

bought at a lower price and sold at a higher price. As price increased four times the price movement could have been 9 (Mon), 10 (Tues), 9 (Wed), 10 (Thurs), 11 (fri) and 12 (sat) and he could have bought on mon, wed and fri and sold on tue, Thu and sat. Gain = 10 + 10 + 10 = Rs. 30 At the end of the week he would have Rs. 1030. (Marks: 2.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

12. If the price per kg of apples has only two distinct values from Monday to Saturday, then the difference in the

Rs.260 Rs.280

http://www.100percentile.com/iitjee/testpaper.do?actionName=previewTest&testPaperId... 12/22/2010

Page 9 of 9

As there is a decrease in the price twice as assuming Somu sold during these decreases. Amount with Somu = 1000 - 10 - 10 + 10 = Rs. 990.

Explanation Amount with Ramu is same for any order of price


i.e. 1000 + 250 = Rs. 1250 Difference = Rs. 260 (Marks: 2.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).
