Question No. 1
Ans to Q1 is option A.  38000

i.e
Manager : Worker
2 S : 3S

Increased on both sides by 4000

2s+ 4000 : 3s +4000  =  40 : 57

Cross multiply the ratios
we get   3x = 34000

present salary of worker is 3x + 4000 i.e  Rs. 38000

In similar manner
Answer to Q2 is option B

Answer to Q 3 is option B

1.  Let salaries of  managers = 2 N
let salaries of workers be = 3 N
New salaries of managers = 2 N + 4, 000
New salaries of workers = 3 N + 4, 000

Ratio = (2N+4000) / (3N+4000) = 40 : 57
by cross multiplying,        57(2N+4000) = 40(3N+4000)
114 N - 120N = 160 000 - 228 000
6 N = 68 000
N = 34 000 / 3
Previous salaries of workers:  3 N = 34,000.
New salaries of workers  = 3 N + 4,000 = 38, 000
================================
Let the volume of alcohol in the mixture be  3 V  litres
let the volume of water in the mixture be 2 V.  Now  6 litres of water are added.
new ratio:   (3 V) : (2 V + 6) = 3 : 4
cross multiplying denominator and numerators:
12 V = 6 V + 18
V = 3 litres
Alcohol = 18 litres
=======================
let the usual speed be = V
let the distance be = S
usual time to reach office = S / V
S / (2/3 V)  =  S/V + 15
3/2 * S/V  = S/V + 15
S/V = 30 minutes
