Explanation

Explanation (1) :

Option (a) and (b) are wrong since the maximum cost of total dairies is nearly Rs. 7450. Now, to maximize the number of pens of Rs. 50, we have to minimize the number of pens of Rs. 30 and the total cost cannot exceed Rs. 7450. So by hit and trial get required result. As:

 Number of dairies of Rs. 30 each Number of dairies of Rs. 50 each Total Cost 1 X 30 = 30 149 X 50 = 7450 7480 2 X 30 = 60 148 X 50 = 7400 7460 3 X 30 = 90 147 X 50 = 7350 7440

Hence the maximum number of dairies of Rs. 50 is 147

Explanation (2) : Explanation (3) : Explanation (4) : Explanation (5) : Explanation (6) : Explanation (7) : Explanation (8) : Explanation (9) : Explanation (10) :

Let F be the family, B, G and A are boys, girls and adults respectively.

Since F < B < G < A

Now, if F = 1, then 1 < 2 < 3 < 4, adults cannot be 4 in one family.

If F = 2, then 2 < 3 < 4 < 5, adults cannot be 5 in 2 families.

If F = 3, then 3 < 4 < 5 < 6, not possible since one family has only two adults.

Again, if F = 4 than 4 < 5 < 6 < 7, possible since

(3 X 2) + (1 X 1) = 7
