7. D

4boys and 6girls finish in 24 days.
In one day, 4boys + 6girls = 1/24 of task.
If a girl is half as efficient as boy
4b + 3b = 1/24, 7b = 1/24, b = 1/168
6g + 2b = 3b + 2b = 5b, 5m will take 1685 days = 33.6 days
If a girl is as efficient as a man
4b + 6g finish in 24 days.
10b finish 1/24 of task in a day
6g + 2b = 8b, 8b will take 240/8 = 30 days to finish the task.
So, the range = 30 to 33.6 days. The new team will take 30 to 33.6 days to finish the task

8. D

The 475 litres is filled in 19 hours by the two pipes when they are opened simultaneously.
Therefore, rate of water flow by A and B,
A + B = 47519 = 25 litres/hour………….(1)
Let pipe B was opened for t hours
Then, pipe A was opened for t + 5 hours
A x (t+5) + B x t = 475
(A + B) x t + 5A = 475
25t + 5A = 475
=> 5t + A = 95
Now, using options
t = 16 => 5 x 16 + A = 95 => A = 15

9. D

To earn a profit of 40% at Rs 20/litre,
Cost price = 20/1.4=100/7



Therefore,
Milk: Water = 100/7:40/7 = 5:2
So, in 4 litres of water, 10 litres of milk would be required. Resultant mixture = 14 litres

10. D
Present age of Daizy =5years
Present age of Radika =5−2=3
Let present age of Anika =x
Then, present age of Radika =x−6/18
x−6/18=3⇒x−6=3×18=54⇒x=54+6=60
