    I. The area of the hall is 24 sq. m.

    II .The breadth, length and height of the hall are in the ratio of 4 : 6 : 5 respectively.

    III. Area of one wall is 30 sq. m.

  2. A.

    Answer : Option C

    Explanation :

    From II, let l = 4xb = 6x and h = 5x.


    Then, area of the hall = (24x2) m2.


    From I. Area of the hall = 24 m2.


    From II and I, we get 24x2 = 24         x = 1.


     l = 4 m, b = 6 and h = 5 m.


    Thus, area of two adjacent walls = [(l x h) + (b x h)] m2 can be found out and so the cost of painting two adjacent walls may be found out.


    Thus, III is redundant.


     Correct answer is (C).
