Question No 5

An estate agent sold a property at a profit of 10% for $825000. What was cost price of the property?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let cost price of the property is x.
10% of x = 10x/100 = x/10

Now
825000 - (x/10) = x
8250000 - x = 10x
8250000 = 11x
x = 750000

Hence cost price of the property is $750000..

Question No 10

A train moves past a telegraph post and a bridge 264 m long in 8 seconds and 20 seconds respectively. What is the speed of the train?

Select the correct answer


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

Then,
x/y = 8
x = 8y

Now, (x+264)/20 = y
8y + 264 = 20y
y = 22

Hence, Speed = 22 m/sec
= 22 * (18/5)
= 79.2 km/hr.

Question No 11

A father is 15 times as old as his son. however, 18 years later, he will be only thrice as old as the son. What is the father's present age?

Select the correct answer


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

Given that
y = 15x
15x-y = 0 ...(1)

and also given that
y+18 = 3(x+18)
y+18 = 3x+54
y-3x = 36 ...(2)

By simultaneously solving equation(1) and equation(2)
y = 45

Hence father's present age is 45 years..

Question No 12

A father said to his son, "I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth". If the father's age is 38 years now, what was the son's age five years back?

Let the son's present age be x years.

Then
(38 - x) = x

2x = 38
x = 38/2 = 19

Son's age 5 years back = 19-5 = 14 years.

Rate downstream = (16/2)km/h = 8 km/h

Rate upstream = (16/4)km/h
= 4 km/h

Hence, Speed in still water = 1/2(8+4)km/h = 6 km/h.

Question No 27

A man rows 1 km upstream in 20 minutes and 1 km downstream in 15 minutes. What is his speed of rowing in still water?

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 rowing = (1/2)*(4+3) = 7/2 = 3.5 Km/h.

Question No 30

Ten years ago Akram was thrice as old as Aslam was, but 10 years hence, he will be only twice as old. What is Akram's present age?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let Aslam's present age is x and Akram's present age is y.

Given that
y-10 = 3(x-10)
y-10 = 3x-30
y-3x = -20
3x-y = 20 ...(1)

and also given that
y+10 = 2(x+10)
y+10 = 2x+20
y-2x = 10 ...(2)

By simultaneously solving equation(1) and equation(2)
y=70

Hence Akram's present age is 70 years..

Question No 31

A man's age is three times his son's. In 15 years it will be double that of his son's. How old is the son now?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let Son's age is x
Mans Age = 3x

Given that
3x+15 = 2(x+15)
3x+15 = 2x+30
3x-2x = 30-15

x = 15

Hence son is 15 years old..

Question No 32

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..

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

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

Select the correct answer


Solution!
A's 1 hour's work = 1/4

(B + C)'s 1 hour's work = 1/3

(A + C)'s 1 hour's work = 1/2

(A + B + C)'s 1 hour's work = (1/4 + 1/3) = 7/12

B's 1 hour's work = (7/12 - 1/2) = 1/12

Hence, B alone will take 12 hours to do the work..

Question No 60

One year ago, the ratio of Sooraj's and Vimal's age was 6/7 respectively. Four years hence, this ratio would become 7/8. How old is Vimal?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Let take the age of Sooraj and Vimal, 1 year ago as 6x and 7x respectively.

Given that, four years hence, this ratio would become 7/8.

(6x + 5)/(7x + 5) = 7/8
48x + 40 = 49x + 35
x = 5

Vimal's present age = 7x + 1 = 7*5 + 1 = 36.
