Answer & Explanation : [C]
Explanation :
Given: 4A = 5B = 7C

 A 35
=
 B 28
=
 C 20

 So, A : B : C = 35 : 28 : 20
A's Runs =
 35 (35 + 28 + 20)
x 581 = 245
and C's runs =
 20 83
x 581 = 140
Thus, difference between A�s score and B�s score = (245 � 140) = 105

Between two stations, the first, second and third class fares are in the ratio 9 : 7 : 2. The number of passengers traveling in a day are in the ratio 5 : 3 : 2 respectively in the above classes. If the sale of tickets generated revenue of Rs 98,000 that day and if 200 passengers traveled by third class, what was the fare for a first class ticket?
• A.
Rs. 84
• C.
Rs. 106
• B.
Rs. 92
• D.
Rs. 126
• Answer & Explanation
• Report
Explanation :
Ratio of number of passengers is 5 : 3 : 2

If 200 passengers traveled by third class, 500 must have traveled by first class.

Sum of ratio of amount collected = (5 x 9 + 3 x 7 + 2 x 2) = 45 + 21 + 4 = 70

Amount collected from 1st class =
 45 70
x 98000
 = Rs. 63,000
Amount collected from 1st class =
 63000 500

 = Rs. 126
