Total volume = 60 S tank
(s^{1} )(10) – (s)10 = 30s
s^{1} (s) – s = 3s
s^{1} = 4s
s^{1} = 4 drawing rateCorrect Option: A
Total volume = 60 S tank
(s^{1} )(10) – (s)10 = 30s
s^{1} (s) – s = 3s
s^{1} = 4s
s^{1} = 4 drawing rate

Item: 2
20 × 250 × 10^{7} 100 20 × 500 × 10^{3} 100
0.5 × 10^{4} = 5 × 10^{3} = Item 2
Item : 323 × 250 × 10^{7} 19 × 500 × 10^{3}
1.2 = Item 3
Item : 619 = 1.18 = Item 6 16
Item : 520 = 5 = 1.6 ⇒ 1.6 = Item 5 12 3 Correct Option: D
Item: 2
20 × 250 × 10^{7} 100 20 × 500 × 10^{3} 100
0.5 × 10^{4} = 5 × 10^{3} = Item 2
Item : 323 × 250 × 10^{7} 19 × 500 × 10^{3}
1.2 = Item 3
Item : 619 = 1.18 = Item 6 16
Item : 520 = 5 = 1.6 ⇒ 1.6 = Item 5 12 3
 The sum of eight consecutive odd numbers is 656. The average of four consecutive even numbers is 87. What is the sum of the smallest odd number and second largest even number?

Eight consecutive odd number = 656
a – 6, a – 1, a – 2, a, a + 2, a + 4, a + 6 a + 8 = 656
a = 81 ................(1)
Smallest m = 75
Average consecutive even numbers⇒ a  2 + a + a + 2 + a + 4 = 87 4
⇒ a = 86
Second largest number = 88
1 + 2 = 163Correct Option: C
