SOL) Actually I did not attempt this question bcause I don't know the relation between penny and cent. Later I came to know that penny and cent are equal(not sure).

2. A five digit no whose third digit is one greater than the sum of the first two digits and the third digit is double the fourth digit and fourth digit is double the fifth digit and second digit is greater than first digit by 5. and if we multiply fourth and fifth digit we get third digit.

3. Two persons met each other. One person is having certain age and the other person is having half the age of first person plus seven years. After 10 years they got married the bride age is 30 years and the groom's age is 9/10th of the bride. What is the groom's age.
SOL)  let the age of first person=x
                 Then the other person's age is x/2 + 7
After 10 years they got married means
X+10 and x/2 + 7 + 10
And x+10=30
Then x=20          and x/2+7+10 = 20/2 + 7 + 10
                                                     = 10 + 7 +10
                                                     = 27
Hence the groom's age is 27

Then the remaining diamonds are x-[x/2+2]  = (x-4)/2
