      Hi Jayanti,
      The answers with brief solutions are :
      Q1:                      A          B        C
          At the start        25          35      30
          after one year      35          35      30
          after two years      45          25      30
          add these          105          95      90
            Ratio              21          19      18
      ans D

      Q2:  let x be the price at A, then price at B is 0.9x.
          price difference : x-0.9x
          expences : Rs10
          net saving = price difference - expenses = 0.1 x - Rs10
          but net saving is given to be Rs 10
      so, 0.1x - Rs10 = Rs 10
      thus,  x=Rs200

      Q3: please check the question again.

      Q4: let the initial tax rate be Rs100, new tax rate will be Rs120.
      let the intial consumption be x, new consumption will be 0.8x.
      old expenditure = Rs100x
      new expenditure = Rs120 * 0.8x = 96x
      so the expenditure has decreased.

      If you need further clarifications please mail me
