1. Answer (b)
Explanation: Let the employee be x, then
x/2 + x/3 +x/4 = 182
On solving, X = 168
2. Answer (d)
Explanation: Here C.P = 100%., S.P = 120%
If he bought at 20% less then C.P = 80%

120% - 80 = 100%
20% = 80
C.P is 100%, Then 100% = Rs 400.
3. Answer (b)
Explanation: Total investment = Rs. 4725
Total SP = 1.4 ×4725 = 6615
Now, Let the price of 4 seater be x then price of two seater will be .75x.
8x + 22 ×0.75x = 6615
24.5x= 6615 or x = 270.
