Question
8 out of 25
 

An airline has a certain free luggage allowance and it charges for excess luggage at a fixed rate per kg. Two passengers, Raja and Praja have 60 kg of luggage between them, and are charged Rs 1200 and Rs 2400 respectively for excess luggage. If the entire luggage belonged to one of them, the excess luggage charge would have been Rs 5400.


What is the weight of Praja’s luggage?



A 20kg

B 25 kg

C 30 kg

D 35 kg

E 40 kg

Ans. D

Let us assume that total allowed luggage for Raja is A and excess luggage is E

Hence, total luggage for Praja should be A + 2E.

E corresponds to Rs 1200.

Hence, A must correspond to (5400 – 3600)

= Rs 1800

If E = 2N; A = 3N

So, total weight = 2(A) + 3E = 12N

Or N = 5

Hence, Praja’s luggage weight = 7N = 35 kg

It should be noted here that none of the options given in Question no. 59 was correct.
