Question No 1

9 excavators working 10 hours a day remove 2500 cubic feet of earth in 3 days. How many excavators working 6 hours a day are required to remove 5000 cubic feet of earth in 2 days?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let x excavators are required.
As excavators are inversely proportional to hours and days and directly proportional to work progress so
x/9 = (10/6)*(5000/2500)*(3/2)
x = 45

Hence 45 excavators are required to remove 5000 cubic feet of earth..

Question No 5

A train travelling at he speed of 72km/h can cross a platform in 17 seconds. If length of the train is 180 meters, what is the length of the platform?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Speed of train = v = 72Km/h = 72*(5/18) = 20m/s

Time = t = 17s
Length of the train = L1 = 180m
Length of the platform = L2 = ?

t = (L1+L2)/v
By putting values
17 = (180+L2)/20
340-180 = L2
L2 = 160m

Hence length of the platform is 160m..

Question No 6

Select the correct answer


Solution!
No answer description available for this question..

Question No 8

What is the angle between the hands of a clock at 2:30?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Hour hand is nearly at 2
Minute hand is at 6

Angle between 2 and 6 is 120 degree.

Hour hand move 1/2 degree in one minute.

In 30 Minutes hour hand will move 1/2 * 30 = 15 degree

Hence, Angle between hands is 120 - 15 = 105 degree.

Question No 9

Tina is twice as old as David. 15 years ago, Tina's age was 5 times the age of David. What is the present age of Tina?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let David's age is x and Tina's age is y.

Given that
y = 2x
y-2x = 0 ...(1)

and also given that
y-15 = 5(x-15)
y-15 = 5x-75
y-5x = -60 ...(2)

By simultaneously solving equation(1) and equation(2)
y = 40

Hence Tina's present age is 40 years..

Question No 10

An article was sold at a loss of 15% for $476. What is the cost price of the article?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let cost price of the article is x.
15% of x = (15x)/100 = 3x/20

Now
(3x/20) + 476 = x
3x+9520 = 20x
9520 = 17x
x = 560

Hence cost price of the article is $560..

Question No 11

A man can row 1 km upstream in 20 minutes, and downstream in 15 minutes. What is the speed of the current?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
20 minutes = 20/60 = 1/3 hours
Upstream distance covered in 1/3 hours = 1 Km
Upstream distance covered in 1 hour = 1/(1/3) = 3 Km
Upstream speed = y = 3 Km/h

Now
15 minutes = 15/60 = 1/4 hours
Downstream distance covered in 1/4 hours = 1 Km
Downstream distance covered in 1 hour = 1/(1/4) = 4 Km
Downstream speed = 4 Km/h

speed of water = (1/2)*(4-3) = 1/2 = 0.5 Km/h.

Question No 12

230 meters long train crosses a man sitting on the platform in 46 seconds. What is the speed of the train?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Length of the train = L = 230m
Time = t = 46s
Speed = v = ?

V = L/t
By putting values
v = 230/46 = 5m/s

Hence speed of the train is 5m/s..

Question No 17

Ten years ago, P was half of Q in age. If the ratio of their present ages is 3/4, what will be the total of their present ages?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the present age of P and Q be 3x and 4x respectively.

Ten years ago, P was half of Q in age.

(3x - 10) = 1/2 * (4x - 10)
6x - 20 = 4x - 10
2x = 10
x = 5

total of their present ages
= 3x + 4x = 7x = 7 * 5
= 35.

A and B can do a job together in 7 days. A is 7/4 times as efficient as B.The same job can be done by A alone in

Select the correct answer


Solution!
(A's 1 day's work) / (B's 1 day's work) = 7/4

Let A's and B's 1 day's work be 7x and 4x respectively.

Then,
7x + 4x = 1/7
11x = 1/7
x = 1/77

Hence, A's 1 day's work = (1/77 * 7) = 1/11.

Question No 27

The angle between the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock when the time is 4:20, is ?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Angle traced by hour hand in 13/3 hrs = (360/12 * 13/3) = 130 degree

Angle traced by minute hand in 20 min = (360/60 * 20) = 120 degree

So, required angle = 130 - 120 = 10 degree.

Question No 28

The sum of ages of 5 children born at the intervals of 3 years each is 50 years. Find out the age of the youngest child?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the ages of children be x, (x + 3), (x + 6), (x + 9) and (x + 12) years.

Then,
x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 50
5x = 20
x = 4

Hence, Age of the youngest child = x = 4 years.
