QUESTION: 12

Answer the question based on the following information.

The city K is 30 Km to the southeast of Z while Y is 50 Km to the northwest of K. Also , H is 38 Km to the southeast of Y. L lies in the direct route between Y and K and its distance from H is 14 Km. G also lies on this route and is exactly midway between L and Y.

Q. A car starting from K at 9 am and running at a constant speed towards Y reaches H at 9.24 am and then reaches G at

Solution:

The car covers K to h - a distance of 12 kms in 24 minutes according to the figure (starting at 9 am and reaching at 9 : 24 am). From H to G, the distance is 26 kms.
(18 H to Z + 8 Z to G). Since the car has covered 12 kms in 24 minutes, it is obvious that it is taking 2 minutes to cover 1 km.
We also know that the sped of the car is constant throughout.
Hence, the car would take another 52 minutes to cover the 26 kms distance between H to G This means that the car would reach G at 10:16 am(52 minutes after 9:24 am).

QUESTION: 15

Answer the question based on the following information.

The city K is 30 Km to the southeast of Z while Y is 50 Km to the northwest of K. Also , H is 38 Km to the southeast of Y. L lies in the direct route between Y and K and its distance from H is 14 Km. G also lies on this route and is exactly midway between L and Y.

Q. The distance from G to H is

Solution:

G to Z, the distance is 8 km (20 km from Y to Z - 12 km from Y to G). Further, from Z to H the distance is 18 km (from the figure based on the logic that if H is 38 km southeast of Y and Z is 20 km southeast of Y, the distance from Z to H would be 38 - 20).
Total distance would be 8 + 18 = 26 km.

Q. If M is 1 Km to the Southeast of L, then it is exactly midway between

Solution:

The total distance between Y and K is 50 km (20 km from Y to Z and 30 km from Z to K). If M is 1 km southeast of L, it means that M is 4 + 1 = 5 km from Z.This would also mean that M is 25 km from Y. Hence, M would be exactly midway between Y and K.

Mean of twenty observations is 15. If two observations 3 and 14 are replaced by 8 and 9 respectively, then the new mean will be

Solution:

Mean of 20 observations =15
