This law applies to both light and heavy bodies, including heavenly bodies such as planets, stars, and galaxies. It also applies to atoms, which are the fundamental building blocks of matter. Therefore, the correct answer is "Universal."

This stage of the infection is known as the liver stage. The parasites then leave the liver and enter the bloodstream, where they infect and destroy red blood cells, causing the characteristic symptoms of malaria such as fever, chills, and fatigue. Therefore, the liver is a crucial organ in the life cycle of the malaria parasite and is directly affected by the disease.

    Cost of  2 articles are in ratio  3:2 . On  the  first  there  is  40% loss and  on  the  second   30 % gain .What  is  overall  percentage  of  loss?

    • A.

      12%

    • B.

      30 %

    • C.

      40 %

    • D.

      10 %

    Correct Answer
    A. 12%
    Explanation
    The overall percentage of loss can be calculated by finding the difference between the cost price and the selling price of both articles and then dividing it by the total cost price. In this case, let's assume the cost price of the first article is 3x and the cost price of the second article is 2x. The selling price of the first article would be 0.6 * 3x = 1.8x, and the selling price of the second article would be 1.3 * 2x = 2.6x. The total cost price would be 3x + 2x = 5x. The overall percentage of loss would be (5x - (1.8x + 2.6x)) / (5x) * 100 = 12%.

    If  12 Boys can  earn   Rs 2400 in  5  days   then  how  many  boys  can  Rs  4200 in  21 days  ?

    • A.

      105 Boys

    • B.

      100 Boys

    • C.

      5 boys

    • D.

      12 Boys

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 boys
    Explanation
    If 12 boys can earn Rs 2400 in 5 days, it means that each boy can earn Rs 200 in 5 days. Therefore, in 21 days, each boy would earn Rs 200 * 21/5 = Rs 840. To find out how many boys can earn Rs 4200 in 21 days, we divide Rs 4200 by Rs 840, which gives us 5. Therefore, the answer is 5 boys.

    The  radius  of  a  circular wheel  is 1.75 m. The number  if  revolutions that it  will make  in  covering  11  km is  

    • A.

      1000

    • B.

      10000

    • C.

      100

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    A. 1000
    Explanation
    The circumference of a circular wheel is given by the formula C = 2πr, where r is the radius of the wheel. In this case, the radius is 1.75 m. To find the number of revolutions the wheel will make in covering 11 km, we need to convert the distance to meters and divide it by the circumference of the wheel. 11 km is equal to 11,000 m. So, the number of revolutions is 11,000 / (2π * 1.75) ≈ 1000. Therefore, the correct answer is 1000.

    In  5  years  Rs  2000  becomes 5000. in  how  many  years at  the  same  ratio  Rs  700  will  become  Rs  910

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      1/20

    • C.

      1/10

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    A. 1
    Explanation
    The given question states that in 5 years, Rs 2000 becomes Rs 5000. This means that the amount increased by Rs 3000 in 5 years. To find out how many years it will take for Rs 700 to become Rs 910 at the same ratio, we need to find the increase in amount. Rs 910 - Rs 700 = Rs 210. Since the ratio is the same, the increase in amount is also the same. Therefore, it will take 1 year for Rs 700 to become Rs 910.
