Question No 1

A train is running at a speed of 10 km/h. What will be the distance covered by it in 3 hours?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
As we know that
S=vt (here S is distance, v is speed and t is time). So
distance = 10*3 = 30Km.

Question No 2

A train 360 m long is running at a speed of 45 km/hr. In what time will it pass a bridge 140 m long?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Formula for converting from km/hr to m/s is
X km/hr = x * (5/18)m/s

Therefore,
Speed = 45 * (5/18) = 25/2 m/s

Total distance to be covered = (360 + 140) m = 500 m

Formula for finding Time = (Distance/Speed)

Hence, Required time = (500*2)/25
= 40 seconds.

Question No 3

Select the correct answer


Solution!

Question No 4

A train 108 m long moving at a speed of 50 km/hr crosses a train 112 m long coming from opposite direction in 6 seconds. The speed of the second train is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the speed of the second train be x km/hr.

Relative speed = (x + 50) km/hr
= (x+50)*(5/18) m/s
= (250+5x)18 m/s

Distance covered = (108 + 112) = 220 m

So, 220/[(250 + 5x) /18] = 6
250 + 5x = 660

Hence, x = 82 km/hr.

Question No 5

If 6th March, 2005 is Monday, what was the day of the week on 6th March, 2004?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
The year 2004 is a leap year. So, it has 2 odd days.

But, Feb 2004 not included because we are calculating from March 2004 to March 2005. So it has 1 odd day only.

So, the day on 6th March, 2005 will be 1 day beyond the day on 6th March, 2004.

Given that, 6th March, 2005 is Monday.

Hence 6th March, 2004 is Sunday..

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

Question No 8

A train speeds past a pole in 15 seconds and a platform 100 m long in 25 seconds. Its length is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the length of the train be x metres and its speed by y m/sec.

Then, x/y = 15
y = x/15

So, (x+100)/25 = x/15
15(x + 100) = 25x
15x + 1500 = 25x
1500 = 10x
x = 150 m.

Question No 9

Question No 13

Alfred buys an old scooter for Rs. 4700 and spends Rs. 800 on its repairs. If he sells the scooter for Rs. 5800, his gain percent is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Cost Price (C.P.) = (4700 + 800) = Rs. 5500

Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs. 5800

Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) = (5800 - 5500) = Rs. 300

Gain % = (300/5500) * 100 = 60/5 %.

Question No 14

Question No 21

What is the angle between the hands of a clock at 1 o'clock?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
At 1 o'clock the minute hand points to the 12 and the hour hand points to the 1.

So we need to find the angle between the 12 and the 1.

There are 12 total numbers on the clock and total angle on complete turn of the clock is 360 degree, so each one must be 360/12 = 30 degree.

So the angle between the hands of a clock at 1 o'clock is 30 degree..

Question No 22

A trader mixes 26 kg of rice at Rs. 20 per kg with 30 kg of rice of other variety at Rs. 36 per kg and sells the mixture at Rs. 30 per kg.His profit percent is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
C.P. of 56 kg rice = (26 x 20 + 30 x 36) = (520 + 1080) = Rs. 1600

S.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (56 x 30) = Rs. 1680

Hence, Gain = (80/1600)*100 = 5%.

Minute hand is at 1

Angle between 7 and 1 is 180 degree.

Hour hand move 1/2 degree in one minute.

In 5 Minutes hour hand will move 1/2 * 5 = 2.5 degree

Hence, Angle between hands is 180 - 2.5 = 177.5 degree.

Question No 29

The age of father 10 years ago was thrice the age of his son. Ten years hence, father's age will be twice that of his son. What is the ratio of their present ages?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the age of the son before 10 years = x
and age of the father before 10 years = 3x

Now we can write as (3x + 20) = 2(x + 20)
x = 20

Age of Father the son at present = x + 10
= 20 + 10 = 30

Age of the father at present = 3x + 10
= 3 * 20 + 10 = 70

Required ratio = 70/30 = 7/3.

Question No 30

The sum of the ages of a son and a father is 64. After 4 years the age of father will be three times that of his son's. The age of father is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let present age of son is x and present age of father is y.

Given that
x+y = 64 ...(1)

and
y+4 = 3(x+4)
y+4 = 3x + 12
y-3x = 8 ...(2)

Put value of x from equation(1) in equation(2)

y-3(64-y) = 8
y-192+3y = 8
4y = 200
y = 50

Hence present age of the father is 50 years..

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.

Question No 41

Question No 42

X is 4 times as old as y. 4 years ago, X was 10 times as old as Y. What will be the ratio of their ages 6 years hence?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Given that
X = 4Y ...(1)

and
X-4 = 10(Y-4)
X-4 = 10Y-40
X-10Y = -36
10Y-X = 36 ...(2)

Put value of X from equation(1) in equation(2)
10Y-4Y = 36
6Y = 36
Y = 6

Put value of Y in equation(1)
X = 4*6
X = 24

After 6 years
Y = 24+6
Y = 30
and
X = 6+6
X = 12

Ratio between X and Y is
30/12 = 5/2

Hence after 6 years ratio between ages of X and Y will be 5/2..

Question No 52

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 56

Two trains are running in opposite directions with the same speed. If the length of each train is 120 metres and they cross each other in 12 seconds, then the speed of each train is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the speed of each train be x m/sec.

Then, relative speed of the two trains = 2x m/sec.

So, 2x = (120 + 120)/12
2x = 20
x = 10

Hence, Speed of each train = 10 m/sec = 10 * (18/5)
= 36 km/hr.

With an increase of 12% salary of Ali became Rs13440. What was his salary before increase?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let before increase Ali's salary was x.
12% of x = 12x/100 = 3x/25

Now
13440 - 3x/25 = x
336000 - 3x = 25x
336000 = 28x
x = 12000

Hence Ali's salary before increase was Rs. 12000.
