Question 10 |

In a bag, there are coins of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p in the ratio of 1 : 2 : 3. If there is Rs. 30 in all, how many 5 p coins are there?

A | 200 |

B | 50 |

C | 100 |

D | 150 |

Question 10 Explanation:

Then, sum of their values = Rs. {(25x / 100) +[(10 * 2x) / 100)]+ (5 * 3x /100)} = Rs. 60x / 100

(60x / 100) = 30

x = (30 x 100) / 60 = 50

Hence, the number of 5 p coins = (3 x 50) = 150

(60x / 100) = 30

x = (30 x 100) / 60 = 50

Hence, the number of 5 p coins = (3 x 50) = 150

Question 11 |

A is thrice as good as B in work. A is able to finish a job in 60 days less than B. They can finish the work in how many days if they work together?

A | 18 days |

B | 26 days |

C | 22 1/2 days |

D | 24 days |

Question 11 Explanation:

If A completes a work in 1 day, B completes the same work in 3 days

Hence, if the difference is 2 days, B can complete the work in 3 days

=> if the difference is 60 days, B can complete the work in 90 days

=> Amount of work B can do in 1 day = 1/90

Amount of work A can do in 1 day = 3 * (1/90) = 1/30

Amount of work A and B can together do in 1 day = 1/90 + 1/30 = 4/90 = 2/45

=> A and B together can do the work in 45/2 days = 22 ½ days

Hence, if the difference is 2 days, B can complete the work in 3 days

=> if the difference is 60 days, B can complete the work in 90 days

=> Amount of work B can do in 1 day = 1/90

Amount of work A can do in 1 day = 3 * (1/90) = 1/30

Amount of work A and B can together do in 1 day = 1/90 + 1/30 = 4/90 = 2/45

=> A and B together can do the work in 45/2 days = 22 ½ days

A | 30 minutes |

B | 40 minutes |

C | 20 minutes |

D | 60 minutes |

Question 17 Explanation:

Let B take x minutes to fill the tank

Part of the tank filled by A and B = (1/60) + (1/x) = (1/20)

Solving this, x= 30

Part of the tank filled by A and B = (1/60) + (1/x) = (1/20)

Solving this, x= 30

Question 18 |

Four dice are thrown simultaneously. Find the probability that all of them show the same face?

A | 3/216 |

B | 1/216 |

C | 1/36 |

D | 4/216 |

Question 18 Explanation:

The total number of elementary events associated to the random experiments of throwing four dice

simultaneously is:

= 6×6×6×6 = 6

n(S) = 6

Let X be the event that all dice show the same face

Hence required probability,

=

= 6 / 6

simultaneously is:

= 6×6×6×6 = 6

^{4 }n(S) = 6

^{4}Let X be the event that all dice show the same face

*X*={(1,1,1,1,),(2,2,2,2),(3,3,3,3),(4,4,4,4),(5,5,5,5),(6,6,6,6)}*n*(*X*) = 6Hence required probability,

=

*n*(*X*) /*n*(*S*)= 6 / 6

^{4}= n(X) / n(S) = 6 / 6^{4}= 1 / 216Question 19 |

A shopkeeper professes to sell his goods at cost price but uses a weight of 800gm instead of 1kg. Thus he makes a profit of?

A | 25% |

B | 20% |

C | 50% |

D | 16% |

Question 19 Explanation:

The shopkeeper uses weight of 800gm instead of 1kg

So, 200gm difference = profit

profit % = 200/800 * 100 = 25%

So, 200gm difference = profit

profit % = 200/800 * 100 = 25%

Question 21 |

A mixture of 70 litres of milk and water contains 10% water. How many litres of water should be added to the mixture so that the mixture contains 12 1/2% water?

A | 5 |

B | 8 |

C | 2 |

D | 4 |

Question 21 Explanation:

Quantity of milk in the mixture = 90/100 (70) = 63 litres

After adding water, milk would form 87 1/2% of the mixture

Hence, if quantity of mixture after adding x liters of water, (87 1/2) / 100 x = 63 => x = 72

Hence 72 - 70 = 2 litres of water must be added

After adding water, milk would form 87 1/2% of the mixture

Hence, if quantity of mixture after adding x liters of water, (87 1/2) / 100 x = 63 => x = 72

Hence 72 - 70 = 2 litres of water must be added
