C | Rs. 250 |

D | Rs. 100 |

Question 6 Explanation:

Let the rate of interest be r

5000[1+ r /100]

[1+ r /100]

Solving which gives

[1+ r/100]

1+ r/100 = 41 / 40

r = 2.5

Therefore, SI = 5000 * 2 * 2.5 / 100 = Rs. 250

5000[1+ r /100]

^{2}= 5000 + 253.125[1+ r /100]

^{2}= 5253.125 / 5000Solving which gives

[1+ r/100]

^{2}= 1681 / 16001+ r/100 = 41 / 40

r = 2.5

Therefore, SI = 5000 * 2 * 2.5 / 100 = Rs. 250

In the first and the second statements the common word is juice and the common code word is see. So see means juice. In the second and the third statements, the common word is ‘is’ and the common code is lee. So lee means is. Thus in the second statement, the remaining word sweet is coded as kee. Hence the answer is (2).

Question 9 |

Two students appeared at an examination. One of them secured 9 marks more than the other and his marks was 56% of the sum of their marks. The marks obtained by them are:

A | 39, 30 |

B | 43, 34 |

C | 41, 32 |

D | 42, 33 |

Question 9 Explanation:

Let their marks be (x + 9) and x.

Then, x + 9 = 56/100 (x + 9 + x)

25(x + 9) = 14(2x + 9)

3x = 99

x = 33

So, their marks are 42 and 33.

Then, x + 9 = 56/100 (x + 9 + x)

25(x + 9) = 14(2x + 9)

3x = 99

x = 33

So, their marks are 42 and 33.

Question 10 |

A train 125 m long passes a man, running at 5 km/hr in the same direction in which the train is going, in 10 seconds. The speed of the train is?

A | 54 km/hr |

B | 45 km/hr |

C | 50 km/hr |

D | 55 km/hr |

Question 10 Explanation:

Speed of the train relative to man = (125 / 10)

= (25/2) m/sec

= (25 / 2 * 18 / 5) km/hr

= 45 km/hr

Let the speed of the train be x km/hr

Then, relative speed = (x - 5) km/hr

x - 5 = 45 => x = 50 km/hr

= (25/2) m/sec

= (25 / 2 * 18 / 5) km/hr

= 45 km/hr

Let the speed of the train be x km/hr

Then, relative speed = (x - 5) km/hr

x - 5 = 45 => x = 50 km/hr

Question 11 |

In the series 2, 6, 18, 54,.... what will be the 8th term ?

A | 7443 |

B | 4370 |

C | 4374 |

D | 7434 |

Question 11 Explanation:

Clearly, 2 x 3 = 6, 6 x 3 = 18, 18 x 3 = 54,....

. So, the series is a G.P. in which a = 2, r = 3.

Therefore 8th term = ar8-1 = ar7 = 2 x 37 = (2 x 2187) = 4374.

. So, the series is a G.P. in which a = 2, r = 3.

Therefore 8th term = ar8-1 = ar7 = 2 x 37 = (2 x 2187) = 4374.

Question 12 |

A | 1964 |

B | 1500 |

C | 1600 |

D | 1800 |

Question 12 Explanation:

Let the required number of bottles be x
More machines, more bottles(direct proportion)
Machines = 6: 10 ::270 : x
Time(in minutes) = 1:4 :: 270 : x
6 * 1* x= 10* 4* 270
X= (10*4*270) / (6*1)
= 20 * 90
X = 1800

Question 13 |

What is the probability of getting a sum 9 from two throws of a dice ?

A | 1/12 |

B | 1/9 |

C | 1/8 |

D | 1/6 |

Question 13 Explanation:

In two throws of a dice,

Let E = event of getting a sum ={(3, 6), (4, 5), (5, 4), (6, 3)}

Therefore, n(E) / n(S) = 4 / 36 = 1/ 9

*n*(S) = (6 x 6) = 36Let E = event of getting a sum ={(3, 6), (4, 5), (5, 4), (6, 3)}

Therefore, n(E) / n(S) = 4 / 36 = 1/ 9

A | 8 |

B | 10 |

C | 9 |

D | 11 |

Question 15 Explanation:

To find maximum number of bows that can be made

1 yard = 36 inches

4 yards = 4*36=144 inches

No.of maximum bows that can be made = 144/15 = 9.6

So maximum 9 bows can be made

1 yard = 36 inches

4 yards = 4*36=144 inches

No.of maximum bows that can be made = 144/15 = 9.6

So maximum 9 bows can be made

Question 30 |

P can lay railway track between two stations in 16 days. Q can do the same job in 12 days. With the help of R, they completes the job in 4 days. How much days does it take for R alone to complete the work?

A | 9(2/5) days |

B | 9(3/5) days |

C | 10 days |

D | 9(1/5) days |

Question 30 Explanation:

Amount of work P can do in 1 day = 1/16

Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/12

Amount of work P, Q and R can together do in 1 day = 1/4

Amount of work R can do in 1 day = 1/4 - (1/16 + 1/12) = 3/16 – 1/12 = 5/48

=> Hence R can do the job on 48/5 days = 9 (3/5) days

Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/12

Amount of work P, Q and R can together do in 1 day = 1/4

Amount of work R can do in 1 day = 1/4 - (1/16 + 1/12) = 3/16 – 1/12 = 5/48

=> Hence R can do the job on 48/5 days = 9 (3/5) days

Question 32 |

In a can, there is a mixture of milk and water in the ratio 4:5. If it is filled with an additional 8 litres of milk the can would be full and ratio of milk and water would become 6:5. Find the capacity of the can?

A | 40 |

B | 44 |

C | 48 |

D | 52 |

Question 32 Explanation:

Let the capacity of the can be T litres

Quantity of milk in the mixture before adding milk = 4/9 (T - 8)

After adding milk, quantity of milk in the mixture = 6/11 T

6T/11 - 8 = 4/9(T - 8)

10T = 792 - 352 => T = 44

Quantity of milk in the mixture before adding milk = 4/9 (T - 8)

After adding milk, quantity of milk in the mixture = 6/11 T

6T/11 - 8 = 4/9(T - 8)

10T = 792 - 352 => T = 44

Question 33 |

Three numbers which are co-prime to each other are such that the product of the first two is 551 and that of the last two is 1073. The sum of the three numbers is:

A | 60 |

B | 75 |

C | 85 |

D | 65 |

Question 33 Explanation:

since the numbers are co-prime, they contain only 1 as the common factor.

Also, the given two products have the middle number in common.

So, middle number = H.C.F. of 551 and 1073 = 29;

First number = 551/29 = 19; Third number = 1073/29 = 37.

Required sum = (19 + 29 + 37) = 85.

Also, the given two products have the middle number in common.

So, middle number = H.C.F. of 551 and 1073 = 29;

First number = 551/29 = 19; Third number = 1073/29 = 37.

Required sum = (19 + 29 + 37) = 85.
