**Question 1**

By how much is four-seventh of 560 greater than five-eighth of 400?

a) 210 b) 70 c) 90 d) 110

**Answer : **b) 70

Solution :

We have to find, the value of 4/7 of 560 - 5/8 of 400.

4/7 x 560 - 5/8 x 400 = (4 x 80) - (5 x 50) = 320 - 250 = 70

Hence, four-seventh of 560 is greater than five-eighth of 400 by 70.

**Question 2**

By how much does 7/(8/9) exceeds (7/8)/9 ?

a) 2 5/8 b) 3 1/9 c) 7 7/9 d) 9 1/7

**Answer : **c) 7 7/9.

Solution :

Here, we have to find the value of 7/(8/9) - (7/8)/9.

(7 x 9/8) - [(7/(8 x 9)]

63/8 - 7/72

[(63 x 9) - 7] / 72

567 - 7/72 = 560/72 = 70/9 = 7 7/9.

Hence, 7/(8/9) is greater than (7/8)/9 by 7 7/9.

**Question 3**

If 5/6 of a property worth be Rs.976500 then the value of 3/5 of the property is:

a) Rs. 503020 b) Rs. 703080 c) Rs. 401090 d) Rs. 600080

**Answer :** b) Rs. 703080.

Solution :

Let the worth of total property be Rs.X

We have to find 3/5 of X.

Given that, 5/6 th of the property = Rs.976500

i.e., 5/6 x X = 976500

X = 976500 x 6/5

And, 3/5 of X = 3/5 x 976500 x 6/5 = 18 x 39060 = 703080

Hence the answer is Rs. 703080
