Question No 2

A works twice as fast as B.If B can complete a work in 12 days independently,The number of days in which A and B can together finish the work in

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Ratio of rates of working of A and B = 2/1! !So, ratio of times taken = 1/2! !B's 1 day's work = 1/12! !A's 1 day's work = 1/6!(2 times of B's work)! !(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/6 + 1/12) = 1/4! !So, A and B together can finish the work in 4 days..

Question No 3

What is the length of a bridge if a train of length 550 meters travelling at the speed of 20m/s can cross it in 35 seconds?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Length of train = L1 = 550m!Speed = v = 20m/s!Time = t = 35s!Length of bridge = L2 = ?! !t = (L1+L2)/v!By putting values!35 = (550+L2)/20!700 - 550 = L2!L2 = 150m! !Hence length of bridge is 150 meter..

Question No 4

Which of the following fractions is closed to 0.5?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
15/30 = 1/2!1/2 = 0.5.

Question No 5

Some articles were bought at 6 articles for Rs. 5 and sold at 5 articles for Rs. 6. Gain percent is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Suppose, number of articles bought =L.C.M. of 6 and 5!= 30! !C.P. of 30 articles = (5/6) * 30 = Rs. 25! !S.P. of 30 articles = (6/5)*30! = Rs. 36! !Hence, Gain % = (11/25) * 100 = 44%.

Question No 6

The average age of A and B is 20. If C were to replace A, the average would be 19, and if B was replaced by C, the average would be 21. The age of C is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Given that!(A+B)/2 = 20!A+B = 40 ...(1)! !and!(C+B)/2 = 19!C+B = 38 ...(2)! !and!(A+C)/2 = 21!A+C = 42 ...(3)! !Put value of A from equation(1) in equation(3)!(40-B)+C = 42!C-B = 2 ...(4)! !By simultaneously solving equation(2) and equation(4)!C = 20! !Hence C is 20 years old..

Question No 7

If a man takes two hours to row 3 km upstream or 15 km downstream then the speed of current is?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Upstream distance covered in 2 hours = 3Km!Distance covered in 1 hour = 3/2 = `1.5 Km!So,!Upstream speed = 1.5 Km/h!Downstream distance covered in 2 hours = 15Km!Distance covered in 1 hour = 15/2 = 7.5Km! !Downstream speed = 7.5 Km/h! !Now!Speed of water = (1/2)*(7.5-1.5) = 3 Km/h.

Question No 8

Select the correct answer


Solution!
P - M = P is the brother of M! !M + N = M is the mother of N! !N x Q = N is the sister of Q! !Therefore, P is the maternal uncle of Q..

Question No 13

If 1/2 x year ago A was 12 and 1/2 x years from now he will be 2x years old, how old will he be 3x years from now?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Given that!A-(1/2)x = 12!2A-x = 24 ...(1)!and!A+(1/2)x = 2x!A+(1/2)x-2x = 0!A+(x-4x)/2 = 0!A-(3/2)x = 0!2A-3x = 0 ...(2)!By simultaneously solving equation(1) and (2) we have!x = 12!and!A = 18! !Now!3x = 3*12 = 36! !After 3x years A will be!18+36 = 54 years old.
