But from the question it is clear that the April 6, Total = 12, and odd days = 5.
required number is the factor of 6 and Day = Sunday + 5 = Friday
the multiple of 5. So we have to find out
the number between 1937 and 2025 Ans.69.(c) Let x denote the monthly
which is divisible by both 36 and 5. income variable and y denote the
monthly expenditure.
62 = 36
As per question,
LCM of 36 and 5 = 36 5 = 180
5 9
180 10 = 1800 x y = 500 .................(i)
9 16
180 11 = 1980
4 7
Thus the required no. is 1980. and x y = 500 .........(ii)
9 16
So, Answer is (c). Solving (i) and (ii) x = 900
Ans.67.(b) Let the total number of
questions asked in examination be n. Their monthly income are 9 x and

No. of correct answer 9 x = Rs. 5000 and Rs. 4000


respectively.
