#LRDIoftheDay #31 An old CAT original set

Krishna distributed 10-acre land to Gopal and Ram who paid him the total amount in the ratio 2 : 3. Gopal invested a further Rs. 2 lakh in the land and planted coconut and lemon trees in the ratio 5 : 1 on equal areas of land. There were a total of 100 lemon trees. The cost of one coconut was Rs. 5. The crop took 7 years to mature and when the crop was reaped in 1997, the total revenue generated was 25% of the total amount put in by Gopal and Ram together. The revenue generated from the coconut and lemon trees was in the ratio 3 : 2 and it was shared equally by Gopal and Ram as the initial amount spent by them were equal.

1. What was the total output of coconuts?

2. What was the value of output per acre of lemon trees planted? (in terms of lakhs/acre)

3. What was the amount (in Rs.) received by Gopal in 1997?

4. What was the value of output per tree for coconuts?

5. What was the ratio of yields per acre of land for coconuts and lemons (in terms of number of lemons and coconuts)?
