Question No 2

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 3

By selling a car for Rs. 495000 an agent gains 10%. What was his cost?

Select the correct answer


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

Now
495000 - (x/10) = x
4950000 - x = 10x
4950000 = 11x
x = 450000.

Question No 5

A 100 meters long train can cross a 150 meters long bridge in 20 seconds. What is the speed of the train?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Length of the train = L1 = 100m
Length of the bridge = L2 = 150m
Time = t = 20s
Speed = v = ?

v = (L1+L2)/t
By putting values
v = (100+150)/20
v = 250/20 = 12.5m/s

Hence speed of train is 12.5m/s..

Question No 6

On 8th Dec, 2007 Saturday falls.What day of the week was it on 8th Dec, 2006?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
The year 2006 is an ordinary year. So, it has 1 odd day.

So, the day on 8th Dec, 2007 will be 1 day beyond the day on 8th Dec, 2006.

But, 8th Dec, 2007 is Saturday.

Hence, 8th Dec, 2006 is Friday..

Question No 7

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 8

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.

Question No 9

Sakshi can do a piece of work in 20 days. Tanya is 25% more efficient than Sakshi. The number of days taken by Tanya to do the same piece of work is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Ratio of times taken by Sakshi and Tanya = 125/100 = 5/4

Suppose Tanya takes x days to do the work.

5/4 = 20/x
x = (4*20)/5

x = 16 days.

Hence, Tanya takes 16 days to complete the work..

Question No 10

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 15

4 men and 6 women can complete a work in 8 days, while 3 men and 7 women can complete it in 10 days. In how many days will 10 women complete it?

Select the correct answer


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

Then, 4x + 6y = 1/8 nd 3x + 7y = 1/10

Solving the two equations, we get
x = 11/400
y = 1/400

So, One woman's 1 day's work = 1/400

10 women's 1 day's work = (1/400 * 10) = 1/40

Hence, 10 women will complete the work in 40 days..

Question No 22

What is the speed of the train if it crosses a 175 meters long bridge in 41 seconds? Length of the train is 645 meters?

Select the correct answer


Solution!
Length of the train = L1 = 645m
Length of the bridge = L2 = 175m
Time = t = 41s
Speed = v = ?

v = (L1+L2)/t
v = (645+175)/41
v = 20m/s = 20 * 18/5 = 72 Km/h

Hence speed of the train is 72 Km/h..

Question No 30

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.

Given that in 2 years, man's age will be twice the age of his son

(x+24) +2 = 2(x+2)
x = 22.

Question No 34

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

Q + R = Q is the father of R

R - T = R is the brother of T

Hence, Q is the father of T

T x K = T is the daughter of K

Hence, Q is the husband of K.

Therefore, P is the mother-in-law of K..

Given that
y = 3x+3 ...(1)

and
x+y = 31
x = 31-y

Put value of x in equation(1)
y = 3(31-y)+3
y = 93-3y+3
4y = 96
y = 24

Three years ago
y = 24-3
y = 21

Hence father was 21 years old 3 years ago..

Question No 46

A can do a work in 15 days and B in 20 days.If they work on it together for 4 days,then the fraction of the work that is left is

Select the correct answer


Solution!
A's 1 day's work = 1/15

B's 1 day's work = 1/20

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/15 + 1/20) = 7/60

(A + B)'s 4 day's work = (7/60 * 4) = 7/15

Therefore, Remaining work = (1 - 7/15) = 8/15.

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.
