SOLUTIONS TO DAILY CSAT MISSION # 3

1.(C)  2.(D)  3.(B)  4.(A) 5.(A)

Explanations
1. You have to imagine this. It can’t be explained.

3. Let his average after 19 innings be ‘x’. So, total runs scored after 19 innings = 19x.
After his 20th innings, his average becomes (x + 5). So, total runs scored after 20 innings = 20(x + 5).
The difference is 155 runs. So, 19x + 155 = 20(x + 5) which gives x = 55.

5. Total money spent = Rs.7. Total money earned = Rs.9.
So, profit % = (9 – 7)/7 * 100 = 28.5 %.
