Following bar graphs shows time taken by different pipes to fill that particular percentage of tank which is described in tabular data. For Ex- Pipe 1 fills the 10 % of tank in 6 mins.
Now, read the following data and answer the question carefully:

A Tank has three pipes; two of them are used to fil the tank while another one used to empty the tank namely: pipe 3, pipe 5 to fill the tank and a third pipe for making the tank empty. When all three pipes are open, 7/18th part of the tank is filled in 1 hours. How much time will the third pipe take to empty the completely filled tank 10 times the bigger than the previous one.


part of work in one hour=
(P3+P5+Third pipE. X 1 = 7/18th part of work
⇒ 7/18th part of work = 1 hr
⇒ Total work done = 18/7 hr by all three pipes
Pipe 3 does 50% of work in 90 mins
100 % of work = 90/50 * 100 = 180 mins = 3 hr
Pipe 5 does 50% of work in 60 mins
100 % of work = 60/50 * 100 = 120 mins = 2 hr
Time Tw Efficiency
Pipe -3 = 3 hr Total work/3 = 6
Pipe-5 = 2 hr Total work/2 = 9
All three = 18/7 hr Total work/(18/7)= 7
For Total work = LCM of (3,2,18/7) = 18
Efficiency of pipe 3 + Efficiency of pipe 5 + Efficiency of third pipe = total efficiency
6+9+X= 7
X = 7-15 = -8 (Negative sign shows the negative work herE.
Efficiency X Time = Total work
8 X Time = 18 * 10 ( as tank is 10 times bigger than the previous onE.
Time = 180/8 = 22.5 hrs

Which of the following will be the Second sentence?


Refer to the last question of the series.


In a school, 12th class consists of 30% male students of which 30% male students failed in the class. Total 82% students passed in 12th examination out of 900 students. Calculate the total number of female passed students?


Short Trick:
Total students = 900
Boys : Girls = 30 % : 70% = 3 : 7
So, exactly Boys : Girls = 270 : 630
Total failed students = 18% of 900 = 162
Failed boys = 30% of 270 = 81
Failed girls = 162 - 81 = 81
Passed female students = 630 - 81 =549
Basic Method:

⇒ Let us consider total number of students be 100x
⇒ ∴ Males students = 30x , female students = 70x
⇒ According to condition given in the problem, of this 30x male students, 70 % male students pass the exam.


Direction: In the following number series, only one number is wrong. Find out the wrong number.
17 25 34 98 121 339


The pattern followed here is,
⇒ 17 + 23 = 17 + 8 = 25
⇒ 25 + 32 = 25 + 9 = 34
⇒ 34 + 43 = 34 + 64 = 98
⇒ 98 + 52 = 98 + 25 = 123
⇒ 123 + 63 = 123 + 216 = 339

There is a rotating bar made up of steel (Sut = 650 MPA. which is subjected to a completely reversed bending stress. The corrected endurance limit of the bar is 300 MPa. The fatigue strength of the bar for a life of 1,00,000 cycles will be _____ MPa


Sut = 650 MPa
Corrected endurance limit , Se = 300 MPa
N = 1,00,000 cycles
We will draw the S-N diagram for it:
log10(0.9Sut) = log10(585) = 2.7672
log10(Se) = log10(300) = 2.4771
log10(N) = log10(100000) = 5

Consider a single plate clutch, consisting of only one pair of connecting surfaces. It develops a maximum torque of 150 N-m. The permissible intensity of pressure is 400 kPa and the coefficient of friction is 0.3. Assume uniform wear theory and the ratio of inner to outer diameters of the friction lining is 0.577. The inner and outer radius of the friction lining will be:


Let the inner diameter be ‘d’ and outer diameter be ‘D’.
Given :
Mt = 150 N-m = 150000 N-mm
Permissible intensity of pressure i.e., Maximum
pressure, P = 400 kPa = 0.4 N/mm2
µ = 0.3

In uniform wear theory case Pressure is inversely proportional to radius, therefore maximum pressure will occur at inner radius.
For Uniform Wear Theory,

Putting all values in equation (i) we will get
D = 202.35 mm, so outer radius = 101.175 mm
d = 116.75 mm, so inner radius = 58.375 mm
Therefore, correct option is (c).

There is a riveted joint which consist of four identical rivets. It is subjected to an eccentric force of 50 kN as shown in figure. If the permissible shear stress of rivet is 60 MPa, then the minimum diameter of rivets will be _____ mm.


Firstly we will locate the centre of gravity of the group of rivets.

Here ‘O’ is centre of gravity
Now, we will take 2 equal and opposite forces passing through centre of gravity (P1 and P2).

Here P1 = P2 = P = 50 kN
P1 will act equally on all rivets in the same direction of applied load and P2 and P causes a twisting couple in clockwise direction. Due to P1 there will be a primary shear force acting on each rivet and due to twisting couple there will be a secondary shear force acting on each rivet.
Primary shear force acting on each rivet

P2 and P causes a twisting couple of magnitude, T = P × e = 50 × 200 = 10000 kN-mm
And this twisting couple will lead to a secondary shear force  on rivet 1, 2 , 3 and 4 respectively as shown in figure:


And we know that

Now, Rivet 3 and Rivet 4 are critical rivets because when we will calculate the resultant shear force on each rivet then we will find it maximum for rivet 3 and 4. The angle between primary and secondary shear force is 450for rivet 3 and 4. The angle between rimary and secondary shear force is 1350 for rivet 1 and 2.

Putting A= 12.5 kN

B = 70.72 kN

And θ = 450

We will get Rmax = 80.05 kN

Now , for safe condition:

Therefore minimum diameter of rivet is 41.22 mm.

= 20.94 rad/s
Radius of crank, r = l / 2 = 300/2 = 150 mm
Total mass to be balanced, m = k × m1 + m2
= 0.65 × 55 + 30 = 65.75 kg
Let the required mass at radius (rp) 270 mm be mp.
So from balancing we can write,
mp × rp = m × r
mp = (m × r) / rp = (65.75 × 150) / 270 = 36.53 kg.
