- I had six thousand acres of land, and had thus got much spare land besides the coffee plantation. Part of the farm was native forest, and about one thousand acres were squatters’ land, what [the Kikuyu] called their shambas.
- The beans ripened in the fields, were gathered and thrashed by the women, and the maize stalks and coffee pods were collected and burned, so that in certain seasons thin blue columns of smoke rose here and there all over the farm.
- The squatters’ land was more intensely alive than the rest of the farm, and was changing with the seasons the year round. The maize grew up higher than your head as you walked on the narrow hard-trampled footpaths in between the tall green rustling regiments.
- The Kikuyu also grew sweet potatoes that have a vine like leaf and spread over the ground like a dense entangled mat, and many varieties of big yellow and green speckled pumpkins.
- The squatters are Natives, who with their families hold a few acres on a white man’s farm, and in return have to work for him a certain number of days in the year. My squatters, I think, saw the relationship in a different light, for many of them were born on the farm, and their fathers before them, and they very likely regarded me as a sort of superior squatter on their estates.

- 251001
- 260101
- 250011
- 261011

**Answer 1**

**Solution 18. **Given Expression = 397 x 397 +104 x 104 + 2 x 397 x 104

I.e. (397)^{2} + (104)^{2} = (501)^{2}

I.e. (500 + 1)^{2}

500^{2} + 1^{2} + 2 x 500 x 1 = 250000 + 1 + 1000

I.e. 251001

**Q.19. ** The cost of 6 pens and 8 pencils is 84. One-third of the cost of one penis equal to the cost of one pencil. What is the total cost of 4 pens and 5 pencils?

- 78
- 72
- 68
- 62

**Answer 3**

**Solution 19. **Let the cost of 1 pen = y then cost of 1 pencil = y/3

Therefore, 6y + 3 x (y/3) = 84

7y = 84 i.e. y = 12

So, total cost of 4 pens and 5 pencils =

(4y + 5y/3) = 17y/3

I.e. (17 x 12) / 3

= 68

**Q.20. **Sarthak earns twice as much in the month of March as in each other months of the year. What part of his entire annual earnings was earned in March?

- 2/13
- 2/11
- ⅙
- 1/7

**Answer 1**

**Solution 20. **Let Sarthak earnings be y in each other 11 months.

Then Sarthak’s earning in March = 2y

So, sarthaks’ annual earnings will be = (11y + 2y) = 13y

Thus, the required fraction = 2y/13y i.e. 2/13

**Q.21. **what will come in place of (?)

421 ÷ 35 x 299.97 ÷ 25.05 = ?^{2}

- 18
- 12
- 24
- 22

**Answer 2**

**Solution 21. **Let the given number = y

Given 421 ÷ 35 x 299.97 ÷ 25.05 = y^{2}

(y)^{2} = 420 ÷ 35 x 300 ÷ 25

= 12 x 300 ÷ 25 = 12 x 12

Therefore, y = √12 x 12 i.e 12

**Q.22. **Gardeners plant 17956 trees in such a way that there are as many rows as there are trees in a row. What is the number of trees in a row?

- 35 years
- 53 years
- 42 years
- 25 years

**Answer 1**

**Solution 23. **Let the ages be y and (y + 10) years

Then, (y + 10 – 15) = 2 (y – 15)

Y – 5 = 2y -30

Y = 25

Present age of the elder man = (y + 10) years i.e. 25 + 10 = 35 years

**Q.24. **By how much percent is four-fifth of 70 is lesser than five-seventh of 112?

- 26%
- 32%
- 30%
- 46%

**Answer 3**

**Solution 24. **

4/5 x 70 = 56

And, 5/7 x 112 = 80

Therefore, required percent = [(80 – 56) / 80 x 100]

24/80 x 100 = 30%

**Q.25. ** If the cost price of 10 articles is equal to the selling price of 7 articles, then the gain or loss percent is?

- 51% gain
- 42 (6/7)% loss
- 42 (6/7)% gain
- 35% loss

**Answer 3**

**Solution 25. ** Let the cost price of each article = ₹1

Then cost price of 7 article =₹ 7 and selling price of 7 article = ₹ 10

Therefore, Gain % = (3/7 x 100)%

I.e. 42 (6/7)%
