Question 1 |

A mixture of 150 liters of wine and water contains 20% water. How much more water should be added so that water becomes 25% of the new mixture?

A | 9 liters |

B | 7 liters |

C | 10 liters |

D | 15 liters |

Question 1 Explanation:

Number of liters of water in150 liters of the mixture = 20% of 150 = 20/100 * 150 = 30 liters

P liters of water added to the mixture to make water 25% of the new mixture

Total amount of water becomes (30 + P) and total volume of mixture is (150 + P)

(30 + P) = 25/100 * (150 + P)

120 + 4P = 150 + P => P = 10 liters

P liters of water added to the mixture to make water 25% of the new mixture

Total amount of water becomes (30 + P) and total volume of mixture is (150 + P)

(30 + P) = 25/100 * (150 + P)

120 + 4P = 150 + P => P = 10 liters

Question 2 |

The number of revolution a wheel of diameter 21cm takes in travelling a distance of 396m is

A | 300 m |

B | 600 m |

C | 115 m |

D | 150 m |

Question 2 Explanation:

No. of revolutions = Distance travelled / Circumference

= 39600 / π d

= 600

= 39600 / π d

= 600

Question 3 |

Salaries of Ravi and Sumit are in the ratio 2 : 3. If the salary of each is increased by Rs. 4000, the new ratio becomes 40 : 57. What is Sumit's salary?

A | 25,500 |

B | 38,000 |

C | 17,000 |

D | 20,000 |

Question 3 Explanation:

Let the original salaries of Ravi and Sumit be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively

Then, (2x + 4000) / (3x + 4000) = 40 / 57

57(2x + 4000) = 40(3x + 4000)

6x = 68,000

3x = 34,000

Sumit's present salary = (3x + 4000) = Rs.(34000 + 4000) = Rs. 38,000

Then, (2x + 4000) / (3x + 4000) = 40 / 57

57(2x + 4000) = 40(3x + 4000)

6x = 68,000

3x = 34,000

Sumit's present salary = (3x + 4000) = Rs.(34000 + 4000) = Rs. 38,000

Question 4 |

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 (in km/hr) is?

A | 72 |

B | 10 |

C | 36 |

D | 18 |

Question 4 Explanation:

Let the speed of each train be xm/sec

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

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

2x = 20 x = 10

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

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

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

2x = 20 x = 10

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

A | 18 |

B | 12 |

C | 15 |

D | 20 |

Question 8 Explanation:

Dividend on Rs. 20 = Rs. (90/100) x 20 = Rs. 9/5
Rs.12 is an income on Rs. 100
Rs. 9/5 is an income on Rs. (100/12) x (9/5) = Rs. 15

Question 9 |

The L.C.M. of two numbers is 48. The numbers are in the ratio 2 : 3. Then sum of the number is:

A | 36 |

B | 40 |

C | 30 |

D | 38 |

Question 9 Explanation:

Let the numbers be 2x and 3x.

Then, their L.C.M. = 6x.

So, 6x = 48 or x = 8

The numbers are 16 and 24.

Hence, required sum = (16 + 24) = 40.

Then, their L.C.M. = 6x.

So, 6x = 48 or x = 8

The numbers are 16 and 24.

Hence, required sum = (16 + 24) = 40.

Question 10 |

A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3:2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A’s share is Rs. 855, the total profit is?

A | Rs. 3800 |

0.05x goes to charity

Out of the remaining 95%

A’s share is 0.95x*3/5 = 0.57x = 855

X = Rs.1500

0.05x goes to charity

Out of the remaining 95%

A’s share is 0.95x*3/5 = 0.57x = 855

X = Rs.1500

Question 11 |

6 men and 8 women can complete a work in 10 days. 26 men and 48 women can finish the same work in 2 days. 15 men and 20 women can do the same work in how many days?

A | 2 days |

B | 4 days |

C | 8 days |

D | 6 days |

Question 11 Explanation:

Let work done by 1 man in 1 day = m and work done by 1 woman in 1 day = b

Work done by 6 men and 8 women in 1 day = 1/10

=> 6m + 8b = 1/10

=> 60m + 80b = 1 --- (1)

Work done by 26 men and 48 women in 1 day = 1/2

=> 26m + 48b = ½

=> 52m + 96b = 1--- (2)

Solving equation 1 and equation 2. We get m = 1/100 and b = 1/200

Work done by 15 men and 20 women in 1 day

=> 15/100 + 20/200 = 1/4

=> Time taken by 15 men and 20 women in doing the work = 4 days

Work done by 6 men and 8 women in 1 day = 1/10

=> 6m + 8b = 1/10

=> 60m + 80b = 1 --- (1)

Work done by 26 men and 48 women in 1 day = 1/2

=> 26m + 48b = ½

=> 52m + 96b = 1--- (2)

Solving equation 1 and equation 2. We get m = 1/100 and b = 1/200

Work done by 15 men and 20 women in 1 day

=> 15/100 + 20/200 = 1/4

=> Time taken by 15 men and 20 women in doing the work = 4 days

Question 12 |

In a box, there are 8 red, 7 blue and 6 green balls. One ball is picked up randomly. What is the probability that it is neither red nor green?

A | 8/21 |

B | 3/4 |

C | 7/19 |

D | 1/3 |

Question 12 Explanation:

Total number of balls = (8 + 7 + 6) = 21

Let E = event that the ball drawn is neither red nor green

n(E) = 7

Therefore P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 7 / 21 = 1 / 3

Let E = event that the ball drawn is neither red nor green

n(E) = 7

Therefore P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 7 / 21 = 1 / 3

Question 13 |

Question 29 |

A certain principal amounts to Rs. 15000 in 2.5 years and to Rs. 16500 in 4 years at the same rate of interest. Find the rate of interest?

A | 3% |

B | 9% |

C | 8% |

D | 5% |

Question 29 Explanation:

Amount becomes 15000 in 2.5 years and 16500 in 4 years

Simple interest for (4 - 2.5) years = 16500 – 15000

Therefore, SI for 1.5 years = Rs. 1500

SI for 2.5 years = 1500 / 1.5 * 2.5 = 2500

Principal amount = 15000 – 2500 = Rs. 12500

Rate of Interest = 2500 * 100 / 12500 * 2.5

R = 8%

Simple interest for (4 - 2.5) years = 16500 – 15000

Therefore, SI for 1.5 years = Rs. 1500

SI for 2.5 years = 1500 / 1.5 * 2.5 = 2500

Principal amount = 15000 – 2500 = Rs. 12500

Rate of Interest = 2500 * 100 / 12500 * 2.5

R = 8%
