Question No 1

Meena is thrice as old as Sheraz. Fatima will be twice as old as Meena 6 years hence. Six years ago Sheraz was five years old. What is Fatima's present age?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let present age of Sheraz is x and present age of Fatima is y.

So,
Meena's age = 3x

Given that
y+6 = 2(3x+6) ...(1)
and
x-6 = 5
x = 11

Put value of x in equation(1)

y+6 = 2(33+6)
y+6 = 78
y = 72

Hence Fatima's present age is 72 years..

Question No 2

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 3

Question No 5

What was the day of the week on 28th May, 2006?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
28 May, 2006 = (2005 years + Period from 1.1.2006 to 28.5.2006)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

5 years = (4 ordinary years + 1 leap year) = (4 x 1 + 1 x 2) = 6 odd days

From January to 28 May (31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 28 ) = 148 days

So, 148 days = (21 weeks + 1 day) = 1 odd day.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 6 + 1) = 7 = 0 odd day.

Hence Given day is Sunday.

Question No 6

If A + B means B is the brother of A; A x B means B is the husband of A; A - B means A is the mother of B and A % B means A is the father of B, which of the following relations shows that Q is the grandmother of T?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Q - P = Q is the mother of P

P + R = R is the brother of P

Hence, Q is the mother of R

R % T = R is the father of T.

Hence, Q is the grandmother of T..

Question No 7

At present, the ratio between the ages of Arun and Deepak is 4/3. After 6 years, Arun's age will be 26 years. What is the age of Deepak at present ?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the present ages of Arun and Deepak be 4x years and 3x years respectively.

Then,
4x + 6 = 26
4x = 20
x = 5

Hence, Deepak's age = 3x = 15 years..

Question No 8

Question No 9

A boat covers a certain distance downstream in 1 hour, while it comes back in 1.5 hours. If the speed of the stream be 3 kmph, what is the speed of the boat in still water?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the speed of the boat in still water be x kmph.

Then,
Speed downstream = (x + 3) kmph

Speed upstream = (x - 3) kmph

So, (x + 3) * 1 = (x - 3)* 3/2
2x + 6 = 3x - 9

Hence, x = 15 kmph.

Question No 10

A 270 metres long train running at the speed of 120 kmph crosses another train running in opposite direction at the speed of 80 kmph in 9 seconds. What is the length of the other train?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Relative speed = (120 + 80) km/hr
= 200(5/18)m/s
= (500/9)m/s

Let the length of the other train be x metres

Then,
(x+270)/9 = 500/9
x + 270 = 500

Hence, x = 230.

Question No 11

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. The ratio of their present ages is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let the ages of father and son 10 years ago be 3x and x years respectively.

Then,
(3x + 10) + 10 = 2[(x + 10) + 10]
3x + 20 = 2x + 40
x = 20
So, 3x + 10 = 70
and x + 10 = 30

Hence, ratio is 70/30 = 7/3..

Question No 12

Select the correct answer


Solution!
As Students read in College similarly Patients are treated in Hospital..

Question No 13

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 14

Pointing to a lady a person said, "The son of her only brother is the brother of my wife." How is the lady related to the person?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Brother of person's wife is brother-in-law of the person.

Hence, the son of lady's brother is brother-in-law of the person.

Therefore, the brother of the lady is the father-in-law of the person. Hence, the lady is the sister of the person's father-in-law..

Question No 16

A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds.What is the length of the train?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Speed = 60 * (5/18) = 50/3 m/sec

Length of the train = (Speed x Time) = (50/3) * 9 = 150 meters.

Question No 17

The ages of C and D are in 6/11 and E is 6 years younger than D. If the sum of ages is 134, then what is the age of D?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Given that
C/D = 6/11
C = (6/11)D ...(1)

and
C+D+E = 134

As E is 6 years younger from D so we can put D-6 instead of D
C+D+D-6 = 134
C+2D = 140
Put value of C from equation(1)
(6/11)D+2D = 140
6D+22D = 140
28D = 1540
D = 55

Hence D is 55 years old..

Question No 22

A can finish a work in 24 days, B in 9 days and C in 12 days. B and C start the work but are forced to leave after 3 days. The remaining work was done by A in

Select the correct answer


Solution!
(B + C)'s 1 day's work = (1/9 + 1/12) = 7/36

Work done by B and C in 3 days = (7/36 * 3)
= 7/12

Remaining work = (1 - 7/12)
= 5/12

Now, 1/24 work is done by A in 1 day.

So, 5/12 work is done by A in (24 * 5/12) = 10 days..

Question No 23

Question No 24

A is 30% more efficient than B. How much time will they, working together, take to complete a job which A alone could have done in 23 days?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Ratio of times taken by A and B = 100/130 = 10/13

Suppose B takes x days to do the work.

Then, 10/13 = 23/x
x = (23*13)/10
x = 299/10

A's 1 day's work = 1/23

B's 1 day's work = 10/299

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/23 + 10/299) = 23/299 = 1/13

Therefore, A and B together can complete the work in 13 days..

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let mother's present age is x and daughters present age is y

Given that
x+y = 63 ...(1)
and

x-3 = 2(y-3)
x-3 = 2y-6
x-2y = -6+3
x-2y = -3 ...(2)

By simultaneously solving equation(1) and equation(2) We'll find
y = 22

Hence present age of the daughter is 22 years..

(A + B + C)'s 1 day's work = (1/24 + 1/6 + 1/12) = 7/24

If A's 1 day's work = 1/n then,
A can finish the work in 'n' days.

So, all the three together will complete the job in (24/7) days..

336000 = 28x
x = 12000

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

Question No 49

What will be the day of the week 15th August, 2010?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
15th August, 2010 = (2009 years + Period 1.1.2010 to 15.8.2010)

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

Odd days in 400 years = 0

9 years = (2 leap years + 7 ordinary years) = (2 x 2 + 7 x 1) = 11 odd days = 4 odd days.

From January to 15 August (31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15) = 227 days

227 days = (32 weeks + 3 days) = 3 odd days.

Total number of odd days = (0 + 0 + 4 + 3) = 7.

Hence, Given day is Sunday..

Question No 50

The product of the ages of two class fellows is 24. If the greater fellow is 3/2 times the smaller one, then the age of the smaller fellow is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let present age of the greater fellow is x and present age of smaller fellow is y.

Given that xy = 24 ...(1)
and

x = (3/2)y
Put value of x in equation(1).

(3/2)y^2 = 24
y^2 = 24*(2/3)
y^2 = 16
y = 4

Hence age of smaller fellow is 4 years..

Question No 51

If 6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days while 26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days, the time taken by 15 men and 20 boys in doing the same type of work will be

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let, 1 man's 1 day's work = x
and 1 boy's 1 day's work = y

Then, 6x + 8y = 1/10
and 26x + 48y = 1/2

Solving these two equations, we get
x = 1/100
and y = 1/200

(15 men + 20 boy)'s 1 day's work = (15/100 + 20/200) = 1/4

Hence, 15 men and 20 boys can do the work in 4 days..

Question No 52
