## SSC CHSL Percentage Questions : 2021 (all Shifts)

Q.1: A is 150% of B and B is 40% of C. If A+B+C=20, then the value of 2B+3C – 4A is equal to:
(A) 16
(B) 15
(C) 20
(D) 14

Ans : (D) 14 $A=B\times\frac{150}{100}$
A : B = 3 : 2
B : C = 2 : 5
A : B : C = 3 : 2 : 5
A+B+C = 20
10 = 20
1 = 2
A = 6, B = 4, C = 10
so 2B+3C-4A
2 x 4 + 3 x 10 – 4 x 6
38 – 24 = 14

Q.2: One dozen notebooks quoted at 125 are available at 20% discount. How many notebooks can be bought for 75 ?
(A) 9
(B) 8
(C) 10
(D) 6

Ans : (A) 9
Printed Price = 125
Discount= 20%
Price of 12 notebooks =125-25=100
Number of notebooks $=\frac{75\times12}{100}=9$

Q.3: The population of a town increased by 15% in 2018 and 10% in 2019. Due to a pandemic, it decreased by 10% in 2020. What was the percentage increase in the population of the town in 3 years?
(A) 12.5%
(B) 17.5%
(C) 15%
(D) 13.85%

Ans : (D) 13.85%
2018 = 15% Increase
2019 = 10% Increase
2020 = 10% Decrease $x\pm y\pm\frac{xy}{100}$ $15+10+\frac{15\times10}{100}$
=26.5% Increase $26.5-10-\frac{26.5\times10}{100}$
16.50 – 2.65=13.85%

Q.4: In a constituency, 55% of the total number of voters are males and the rest are females. If 40% of the males are illiterate and 40% of the females are literate, then by what percentage is the number of illiterate females more than that of the illiterate males (correct to one decimal place) ?
(A) 16.4%
(B) 20.8%
(C) 22.7%
(D) 21.5%

Ans : (C) 22.7%
Total voters = 100
Males= 55
Females= 45
Illiterate Males $=55\times \frac{40}{100}=22$
Illiterate females $=45\times \frac{60}{100}=27$
% Increase $=\frac{27-22}{22}\times 100$ $=\frac{5}{22}\times100=22.7$%

Q.5: The income of A is 40% less than that of B. If A gets 25% rise in his income and B gets 40% rise in his income, then the percentage increase (correct to two decimal places) in the combined of A and B will be:
(A) 37.86
(B) 31.67
(C) 35.19
(D) 34.38

Ans : (D) 34.38
Let B’s Income = 100
A’s Income = 60
(A+B) Total income = 160
Increase in A’s income $=60\times\frac{25}{100}=15$
A’s new income = 60+15 = 75
Similarly B’s new income =140
Thus the new income of (A+B) = 140+75=215
% Increase $=\frac{215-160}{160}\times100 =34.38$%

Q.6: A number P is 20% more than a number Q but 10% less than a number R. What percentage is number Q of number R?
(A) 90
(B) 75
(C) 80
(D) 85

Ans : (B) 75
P : Q = [6 : 5] x 3
P : R = [9 : 10] x 2
P : Q = 18 : 15
P : R = 18 : 20
P : Q : R = 18 : 15 : 20
What percentage is number Q of number R $=\frac{Q}{R}\times 100$ $=\frac{15}{20}\times100=75$%

Q.7: A reduction of 20% in the rate of sugar enables Sudhir to get 6 kg more sugar for 960. What is the reduced rate of sugar per kg?

Initial Price : Reduced Price
Price ratio 5 : 4
Consumed Quantity ratio 4 : 5
1 = 6 kg
Initial quantity =6 x 4=24 kg
Reduced quantity= 6 x 5 = 30 kg
Reduced rate of sugar per kg $=\frac{960}{30} =32$ kg

Q.13: A, B and C are three positive numbers such that A is 70% of B, and B is 40% of C. If the sum of all three numbers is 336, then 15% of the sum of B and C is:
(A) 48
(B) 44
(C) 32
(D) 42

Ans : (D) 42 $A = B\times\frac{70}{100}$
A : B = 7 : 10
B : C = 2 : 5
A : B : C = 14 : 20 : 50
= 7 : 10 : 25
42 = 336 $1 =\frac{336}{42}$
1 = 8
B+C = 80+200=280 $=280\times\frac{15}{100}=42$
