A and B invest Rs.50000 and Rs.75000 in a business respectively. B withdraws the mount after 8 months. If the profit earned after a year is Rs.30000, find B’s share of the profit?

A | Rs. 15000 |

B | Rs. 20000 |

C | Rs. 12000 |

D | Rs. 15000 |

Question 3 Explanation:

Share of profits between A and B is in the ratio

50000 * 12:75000*8 = 1:1

B’s share = ½ * 30000 = Rs.15000

50000 * 12:75000*8 = 1:1

B’s share = ½ * 30000 = Rs.15000

Question 5 |

The speed of a boat in still water is 5 km/hr. The speed of the stream is 2 km/hr. The distance travelled by a boat upstream in 3.5 hrs is

A | 20 km |

B | 24.5 km |

C | 17.5 km |

D | 10.5 km |

Question 5 Explanation:

Upstream speed = Speed of the boat – speed of the stream

= 3 km/hr

Distance travelled = speed * time

= 3*3.5 = 10.5 km

= 3 km/hr

Distance travelled = speed * time

= 3*3.5 = 10.5 km

Question 7 |

A train 800 meters long is running at a speed of 78 km/hr. If it crosses a tunnel in 1 minute, then the length of the tunnel (in meters) is ?

A | 540 |

B | 360 |

C | 130 |

D | 500 |

Question 7 Explanation:

Speed = (78 * 5/18) m/sec = 65/3 m/sec

Time = 1 minute = 60 seconds

Let the length of the tunnel be x metres

Then, (800 + x) / 60 = 65 / 3

3(800 + x) = 3900 x = 500

Time = 1 minute = 60 seconds

Let the length of the tunnel be x metres

Then, (800 + x) / 60 = 65 / 3

3(800 + x) = 3900 x = 500

Question 8 |

B | 16 |

C | 50 |

D | 25 |

Question 8 Explanation:

If there is profit on selling item = selling price of an article

To find profit %, simply minus 12 from 4 = 8

Profit % = 4/8 * 100 = 50

To find profit %, simply minus 12 from 4 = 8

Profit % = 4/8 * 100 = 50

Question 11 |

A new apartment complex purchased 60 toilets and 20 shower heads. If the price of a toilet is three times the price of a shower head, what percent of the total cost was the cost of all the shower heads?

A | 9% |

B | 10% |

C | 11% |

D | 13% |

Question 11 Explanation:

If the cost of toilet = x & shower head = y

Total cost = 60x+20y, given x=3y

So total cost = 60*3y+20y=200y% of shower head cost to total cost = 20y/200y = 10

Total cost = 60x+20y, given x=3y

So total cost = 60*3y+20y=200y% of shower head cost to total cost = 20y/200y = 10

Question 18 |

How long will it take a certain amount of increase by 30% at the rate of 15% simple interest ?

A | 8% |

B | 2% |

C | 2% |

D | 4% |

Question 18 Explanation:

Let the principal be Rs. x

Simple interest = x * 30 / 100 = 3x / 10

T = 100 * SI / PR = 100 * (3x / 10) / x * 15 = 2%

Alternatively, this can be solved by considering

principal amount to be Rs. 100

Then simple interest becomes Rs. 30

Then, T = 100 * 30 / 100 * 15 = 2%

Simple interest = x * 30 / 100 = 3x / 10

T = 100 * SI / PR = 100 * (3x / 10) / x * 15 = 2%

Alternatively, this can be solved by considering

principal amount to be Rs. 100

Then simple interest becomes Rs. 30

Then, T = 100 * 30 / 100 * 15 = 2%

Question 19 |

Question 19 Explanation:

B is to the right of D. A is to the right of B. E is to the right of A and left of C.

So the order is D, B, A, E, C. Clearly A is in the middle.

So the order is D, B, A, E, C. Clearly A is in the middle.

Question 22 Explanation:

3.

= (3 + 87/99) - (2 + 59/99)

= 1+(87/99 – 59/99 )

= 1+(28/99) = 1.28

*87*- 2.*59*= (3 + 0.*87*) - (2 + 0.*59*)= (3 + 87/99) - (2 + 59/99)

= 1+(87/99 – 59/99 )

A | Rs. 3065 |

B | Rs. 2765 |

C | Rs. 7658 |

D | Rs. 2520 |

Question 25 Explanation:

Let the required wages be x
More men, more wages( Direct proportion)
Less days, Less wages ( Direct proportion)
Men = 6:9 ::2100 😡
Days = 15:12 :: 2100 : x
(6*15*x) = (9* 12* 2100)
X = [(9*12*2100) / (6* 15)]
X = 420 * 6
X= 2520
Hence, the required wages are Rs. 2520

The salaries of A, B, C are in the ratio 2 : 3 : 5. If the increments of 15%, 10% and 20% are allowed respectively in their salaries, then what will be new ratio of their salaries?

A | cannot be determined |

B | 10 : 11 : 20 |

C | 23 : 33 : 60 |

D | 3 : 3 : 10 |

Question 32 Explanation:

Let A = 2k, B = 3k and C = 5k

A's new salary = (115 / 100) of 2k = (115 / 100) x 2k = 23k / 10

B's new salary = (110 / 100) of 3k = (110 / 100) x 3k = 33k / 10

C's new salary = (120 / 100) of 5k = (120 / 100) x 5k = 6k

New ratio = [23k / 10 : 33k / 10 : 6k] = 23 : 33 : 60

A's new salary = (115 / 100) of 2k = (115 / 100) x 2k = 23k / 10

B's new salary = (110 / 100) of 3k = (110 / 100) x 3k = 33k / 10

C's new salary = (120 / 100) of 5k = (120 / 100) x 5k = 6k

New ratio = [23k / 10 : 33k / 10 : 6k] = 23 : 33 : 60

A | N β P - L + E - M |

B | M - Y * P - N |

C | N β C + F * M |

D | N - Y + A β M |

Question 36 Explanation:

• P - L → P is the sister of L

• L + E → L is the mother of E

• E - M → E is the sister of M.

Hence, L is the mother of M, P is the maternal aunt of M and N is the maternal uncle of M.

• L + E → L is the mother of E

• E - M → E is the sister of M.

Hence, L is the mother of M, P is the maternal aunt of M and N is the maternal uncle of M.

Question 37 |

One card is drawn at random from a pack of 52 cards. What is the probability that the card drawn is a face card ( jack, queen, king only) ?

A | 1/13 |

B | 1/4 |

C | 3/13 |

D | 9/52 |

Question 37 Explanation:

Total no. of face cards (jack, queen and king only) =12

Total no .of cards = 52

So probability = 12 / 52 = 3 / 13

Total no .of cards = 52

So probability = 12 / 52 = 3 / 13

Question 38 |

A vessel of capacity 90 litres is fully filled with pure milk. Nine litres of milk is removed from the vessel and replaced with water. Nine litres of the solution thus formed is removed and replaced with water. Find the quantity of pure milk in the final milk solution?

A | 73.8 |

B | 74.7 |

C | 72 |

D | 72.9 |

Question 38 Explanation:

Let the initial quantity of milk in vessel be T litres

Let us say y litres of the mixture is taken out and replaced by water for n times, alternatively

Quantity of milk finally in the vessel is then given by [(T- y) /T]n * T

For the given problem, T = 90, y = 9 and n = 2

Hence, quantity of milk finally in the vessel

= [(90 - 9) /90]2 (90) = 72.9 litres

Let us say y litres of the mixture is taken out and replaced by water for n times, alternatively

Quantity of milk finally in the vessel is then given by [(T- y) /T]n * T

For the given problem, T = 90, y = 9 and n = 2

Hence, quantity of milk finally in the vessel

= [(90 - 9) /90]2 (90) = 72.9 litres

Question 39 |

A train 125m 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 | 55 km/hr |

B | 54 km/hr |

C | 50 km/hr |

D | 45 km/hr |

Question 39 Explanation:

Speed of the train relative to man = 125/10 m/sec

=> 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

A | 12 |

B | 20 |

C | 15 |

D | 18 |

Question 43 Explanation:

When all pipes are opened simultaneously, part of tank filled in 1minutes

= (1/20) + (1/10) – (1/15) = 1/12

Time taken to fill the tank = 12 minutes

= (1/20) + (1/10) – (1/15) = 1/12

Time taken to fill the tank = 12 minutes

Question 44 |

One year ago, a mother was four times as old as her daughter. Six years hence, the age of the mother will exceed twice the age of her daughter by 9 years. The ratio of the present ages of the mother and her daughter is ?

A | 9 : 2 |

B | 11 : 3 |

C | 12 : 5 |

D | 13 : 4 |

Question 44 Explanation:

M - 1 = 4(D - 1)

4D - M = 3

M + 6 = 2(D+6)+9

M - 2D = 15

Solving,

2D = 18

D = 9

M = 33

M : D = 11 : 3

4D - M = 3

M + 6 = 2(D+6)+9

M - 2D = 15

Solving,

2D = 18

D = 9

M = 33

M : D = 11 : 3
