1.let the CP of two cows be x and y.Now acc to given statements---(x+10x/100) + (y-10y/100) = 210[10%profit as 10/100 of CP of first cow and like wise for other]also,total profit is 5%,hence (x+y)+5/100(x+y) = 210solving both equations---Cost Price of cows is Rs.100 each.3.let the no. of female clerks be F.Let no. of male clerks be M.according to given stat---2F+M=30F+3M=30solving both equations---M=6,F=124.i guess answer is Monday.As the day after tommorow is Sunday.The day before sunday is saturday.And said is 2 days after this day(saturday)---So ans is Monday.

solution1 :the cost price of two cows is =200let the peice of one is "x" and other is (200-x)now solving this equationx*(110/100)+(200-x)*(90/100)=210u will get the answer as 150 and 50solution 2:i have no idea about it.solution 3:-let "m" be the number of male clerks and "f" be the number of female clerksaccording to given condition two equation are formed 3m+f=30..........1and2f+m=30..............2on solving u get (12+6)=18 which is answersolution 4:-it is very easy answer is "monday"
