Question 6 |

Pipes P and Q can empty a tank in 1 hr and 1.5 hrs respectively. Pipes R and S can fill a tank in 2 hrs and 2.5 hrs respectively. The tank is filled to its capacity of 15 litres and all four pipes are opened simultaneously. How much water remains in the tank after an hour?

A | 5 liters |

B | 7 liters |

C | 3.5 liters |

D | 2.5 liters |

Question 6 Explanation:

Part of tank emptied by P in an hour = 1

Part of tank emptied by Q in an hour = 1/1.5 = 2/3

Part of tank filled by R in an hour = ½

Part of tank filled by S in an hour = 1/ 2.5 = 2/5

Part of tank emptied in an hour = (1+ (2/3)) - (1/2 + (2/5)) = 23/30

Water remaining in the tank = 15*7/30 = 3.5 liters

Part of tank emptied by Q in an hour = 1/1.5 = 2/3

Part of tank filled by R in an hour = ½

Part of tank filled by S in an hour = 1/ 2.5 = 2/5

Part of tank emptied in an hour = (1+ (2/3)) - (1/2 + (2/5)) = 23/30

Water remaining in the tank = 15*7/30 = 3.5 liters

To find loss%, simply add 36 to 4 = 40

Loss % = 4/40 * 100 = 10

Question 20 |

A boat travels 10 km upstream and 5 km downstream in 3 hrs. If the speed of the boat in still water is 7 kmph, find the speed of the stream?

A | 5 kmph |

B | 2 kmph |

C | 3 kmph |

D | 4 kmph |

Question 20 Explanation:

Let the speed of the stream be x kmph

Upstream speed = (7-x) kmph

Downstream speed = (7+x) kmph

Time taken to travel upstream = (10/ (7-x)) hrs

Time taken to travel upstream = (5/ (7+x)) hrs

(10/ (7-x)) + (5/ (7+x)) = 3

3 x 2 + 5x – 42 = 0

Solving this equation, x= 3

Upstream speed = (7-x) kmph

Downstream speed = (7+x) kmph

Time taken to travel upstream = (10/ (7-x)) hrs

Time taken to travel upstream = (5/ (7+x)) hrs

(10/ (7-x)) + (5/ (7+x)) = 3

3 x 2 + 5x – 42 = 0

Solving this equation, x= 3

Question 21 |

Two trains of equal length are running on parallel lines in the same direction at 46 km/hr and 36 km/hr. The faster train passes the slower train in 36 seconds. The length of each train is?

A | 82 m |

B | 50 m |

C | 80 m |

D | 72 m |

Question 21 Explanation:

Let the length of each train be x metres

Then, distance covered = 2xmetres

Relative speed = (46 - 36) km/hr

= (10 * 5 / 18) m/sec

= (25 / 9) m/sec

Therefore,( 2x / 36) = (25 / 9)

2x = 100 x = 50

Then, distance covered = 2xmetres

Relative speed = (46 - 36) km/hr

= (10 * 5 / 18) m/sec

= (25 / 9) m/sec

Therefore,( 2x / 36) = (25 / 9)

2x = 100 x = 50

Question 22 |

Question 23 |

A and B invest Rs.150000 and Rs. 200000 in a business respectively. A withdraws an amount of Rs.50000 after 6 months .B withdraws an amount of Rs.50000 after 8 months. If the profit earned is Rs. 74000, find A’s share of the profit?

A | Rs. 30000 |

B | Rs. 40000 |

C | Rs. 13000 |

D | Rs. 5000 |

Question 23 Explanation:

A:B =[(150000*6)+(100000*6)] : [(200000*8)+(150000*4)]

= 15:22

A’s share = (15/37)*74000 = Rs. 30000

= 15:22

A’s share = (15/37)*74000 = Rs. 30000

Question 24 |

A certain amount becomes Rs. 5760 in 2 years and Rs. 6912 in 3 years. What is the principal amount and the rate of interest?

A | Rs. 4000 |

B | Rs. 7000 |

C | Rs. 2500 |

D | Rs. 3000 |

Question 24 Explanation:

S.I on Rs. 5760 for 1 year = 6912 – 5760 = Rs. 1152

Therefore, Rate of interest for 1 year = 100 * 1152/5760 * 1 = 20%

Let the principal be p

Then, Principal = p[1 + 20 / 100]

Solving which gives Principal = Rs. 4000

Therefore, Rate of interest for 1 year = 100 * 1152/5760 * 1 = 20%

Let the principal be p

Then, Principal = p[1 + 20 / 100]

^{2 }= 5760Solving which gives Principal = Rs. 4000

Question 25 |

A bag contains 2 red, 3 green and 2 blue balls. Two balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that none of the balls drawn is blue?

A | 2/7 |

B | 5/7 |

C | 11/21 |

D | 10/21 |

Question 25 Explanation:

Total number of balls = (2 + 3 + 2) = 7

Let S be the sample space

Then, n(S) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 7

= 7C

Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue

n(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls

=

= (5 x 4) / (2 x 1)

= 10

Therefore P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 10 / 21

Let S be the sample space

Then, n(S) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 7

= 7C

_{2}= (7 x 6) / (2 x 1) = 21Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue

n(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls

=

^{5}C_{2}= (5 x 4) / (2 x 1)

= 10

Therefore P(E) = n(E) / n(S) = 10 / 21

A | 22 days |

B | 26 days |

C | 12 days |

D | 16 days |

Question 27 Explanation:

2 children = 1 man
(8 children + 12 men) = 16 men
Less men, more days( Indirect proportion )
12 : 16 :: 9: x
12x= (16*9)
12x = 144
X= 144/12
X= 12 days

Question 39 |

P is able to do a piece of work in 15 days and Q can do the same work in 20 days. If they can work together for 4 days, what is the fraction of work left?

A | 11/15 |

B | 2/11 |

C | 7/15 |

D | 8/15 |

Question 39 Explanation:

Amount of work P can do in 1 day = 1/15

Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/20

Amount of work P and Q can do in 1 day = 1/15 + 1/20 = 7/60

Amount of work P and Q can together do in 4 days = 4 * (7/60) = 7/15

Fraction of work left = 1 – 7/15 = 8/15

Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/20

Amount of work P and Q can do in 1 day = 1/15 + 1/20 = 7/60

Amount of work P and Q can together do in 4 days = 4 * (7/60) = 7/15

Fraction of work left = 1 – 7/15 = 8/15

Question 40 |

If 40% of a number is equal to two-third of another number, what is the ratio of first number to the second number ?

A | 7 : 3 |

B | 3 : 7 |

C | 2 : 5 |

D | 5 : 3 |

Question 40 Explanation:

Let 40% of A = 2 / 3 B

Then, 40A / 100 = 2B / 3

2A / 5 = 2B / 3

A / B = (2 / 3 * 5 / 2) = 5 / 3

A : B = 5 : 3

Then, 40A / 100 = 2B / 3

2A / 5 = 2B / 3

A / B = (2 / 3 * 5 / 2) = 5 / 3

A : B = 5 : 3

A | 45% |

B | 54 6/11% |

C | 45 5/11% |

D | 55% |

Question 43 Explanation:

Number of runs made by running = 110 - (3 x 4 + 8 x 6)

= 110 - (60)

= 50.

Required percentage = ( (50 x 100)/100)% = 5/4511 %

= 110 - (60)

= 50.

Required percentage = ( (50 x 100)/100)% = 5/4511 %
