15. On children’s day sweets were to be equally distributed amongst 540 children. But on that particular day,120 children were absent. Thus, each child got 4 sweets extra. How many sweets was each child originally supposed to get?

(1) 18

(2) 25

(3) 14

(4) 20

(5) None of these

(5) Let the speed of the boat in still water be x km/hr

and that of stream be y km/hr

Downstream, speed of boat = x + y km/hr

Upstream, speed of boat = x – y km/hr

On solving, we get x = 2.2 km/hr

Ratio of profits = Ratio of the investments by Sonia,

Vivek and Kirti

= 60000 × 24 : 140000 × 18 : 120000 × 12 = 4 : 7 : 4
