    D)

    P Q R S
    1 3 2 4

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

              (P) Let the cost be Rs. X
    Cost of sheet (in Rs.) 1395 x
    Length of sheet 93 105
    It is the case of direct variation. \[\frac{1395}{93}=\frac{x}{105}\Rightarrow x=\frac{1395\times 105}{93}=1575\] So, cost of plastic sheet is Rs. 1575. (Q) Let the number of cows be x.
    No. of cows 55 x
    No. of days 16 10
    It is the case of inverse variation. \[\Rightarrow 55\times 16=x\times 10\] \[\Rightarrow x=\frac{55\times 16}{10}=88\] So, 88 cows will graze the field in 10 days, (R) Let the number of men be x.
    No. of men 18 x
    No. of days 35 15
    It is the case of inverse variation. \[18\times 35=x\times 15\] \[\Rightarrow x=\frac{18\times 35}{15}=42\] So, 42 men can reap a field in 15 days. (S) Let the number of words \[=\text{ }x\]
    No. of words 1080 X
    Time (in minutes) 60 1
    It is the case of direct variation. \[\Rightarrow x=\frac{1080}{60}=18\] So, Sunita types 18 words per minute.
