A
C.P. of milk = x / bottle. C.P. of coke = 2x/bottle Cost of 4-bottles of milk = 4x Cost of 1-bottle of coke = 2x

Explanation Total price = 6x


Each share = 6x / 3 = 2x share = 50 = 2x C.P. of coke = 2x = 50/- Rs. (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

15. A milkman cheats his customers by adding water to the milk he sells. He starts the day with 1000 litres of milk.

However, after selling every 500 litres of milk, he adds an equal quantity of water to what he already has. The milkman can get away by cheating as long as the milk to water ratio does not fall below 1 : 7. Each customer brings exactly 2 litres of milk a day (except for the first 100 who buy 5 litres each). The total number of customers the milkman has cheated if he ends up selling all the milk is :

(A). (C).

800 1000

(B). (D).

1200 None of these

Correct Answer

Initially 500 Lts. of milk @ 5 lt./customer gives 100 - customers. Hence first 100 get pure milk now add 500 lts. of water which gives 1000 lts. solution [500 lt. W, 500 lt. M and Ratio 1 : 1]

Page 10 of 10

1000

@ 2 Lt/customer = 250 customer

500 lt. left (250 M, 250 w)

Now again add 500 Lt. of water 1000 lt. solution [250 M, 750 w and Ratio 1 : 3] 1000 @ 2 Lt/customer = 250 customer

Explanation
500 lt. left (250/2 M, 750/2 W) Now add 500 Lt. of water 1000 Lt. solution

Ratio = 1 : 7

Stop (Do not add water) 1000 Lt. solution @ 2 Lt./customer = 500 customer Total no. of customers cheated = 250 + 250 + 500 = 1000. (Marks: 5.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).
