Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below:
A, B, C. D and E are five brothers. They have assets in the form of flats and cash only. Together they have 9 flats and each brother has at least 1 flat. Value (in terms of rupees) of all flats is equal and constant. Cash with each brother is an integral multiple of Rs. 10 lakhs. The amount of cash with B is just enough to buy one more flat, all the other brothers have cashless than that of B. E has got the maximum number of flats. A number of flats with A is equal to the sum of the number of flats with B and C. Amount of cash with B is double of that with D, but D has got assets worth Rs. 20 lakhs more than that of B.
What is the value of 1 flat?
Case I:B and D have one flat and two flats respectively.
Let the value of a flat be Rs. x. So, the amount of cash with B = x.
So total assets of B = 2x
Total assets of As D has got assets worth 20 lakhs more than that of B
Case II:
B and D have one flat each.
Let value of a flat be Rs. x. So, amount of cash with B = x
⇒ Total assets of B = 2x
Total assets of
As D has got assets worth 20 lakhs more than B
Here the value of x is coming as negative. So this case is not possible.

All natural numbers that give remainders 1 and 2 when divided by 6 and 5, respectively, are written in ascending order, side by side from left to right. What is the 99th digit from the left?
Natural numbers which when divided by 6 give a remainder 1 are given by 6m +1 [‘m’ is a whole number].
5k + 2 = 6m + 1 or 6m  5k = 1.
All such natural numbers are 7, 37, 67, 97,127
Numbers when written one beside the other
7, 37, 67, 97, 127, 157, 187, 217, 247, 277, 307, 337.......so on.
Observe the series.
The first 4 numbers give first 7 digits. After these 4 numbers, 3 digit numbers follow. The 3 digit numbers from an A.P. with common difference 30.
First three digit number = 127
The 30th 3digit number is = 127 + (30 1) × 30
= 997
=> The first 34 numbers (= 4 + 30) give 97 digits (= 7 + 3 × 30)
The next number in this A.P is 997 + 30 = 1027
=> the 99th digit is 0.
Hence answer is an option (d).
A combo pack having a bulb and a tube light costs Rs. 52. If the cost of the bulb drops by 20% and the cost of the tube light escalates by 50%. the pack would cost Rs. 50. Find the price of a tube light?
t + b = 52
cost of bulb drops by 20% and cost of tubelight increases by 50%
⇒1.5t + 0.8b = 50
Solving the two equations in t and b
t + b = 52.......(i)
1.5t + 0.8b = 50.......(ii)
Multiplying (i) equation by 4 and (ii) equation by 5
4t + 4b = 2087.5t + 4b = 250
Subtracting
3.5 t = 42
⇒ t = 12
Thus, the cost of a tube light = Rs. 12
How many sets of three distinct factors of the number N = 2^{6} x 3^{4} x 5^{2} can be made such that the factors in each set have a highest common factor of 1 with respect to every other factor in that set?
Case: [A]
when none of the elements is 1 ⇒ the three factors must be some powers of 2, 3, 5 respectively.
⇒ total number of such sets = 6 × 4 × 2 = 48
Case: [B]
when one of the elements is 1
⇒ the other two factors could be of the form (2^{a}), (3^{b}) − number of sets = 6 × 4 = 24
(2^{6}), (5^{2}) − number of sets = 6 × 2 = 12
(3^{4}),(5^{2}) − number of sets = 4 × 2 = 8
(2^{6} × 3^{4} × 5^{2}) − number of sets = 6 × 4 × 2 = 48
(2^{6} × 5^{2} × 3^{4}) − number of sets = 6 × 2 × 4 = 48
(3^{4} × 5^{2} × 2^{6}) − number of sets = 4 × 2 × 6 = 48
∴ total number of such sets = 188
combining both the cases, total sets possible
= 188 + 48 = 236
Find all the values of p, such that 6 lies some where between the roots of the equation
x^{2} + 2(p  3)x + 9 = 0. (‘x’ is a real number).
Both the roots will be real as 6 lies between the roots
(i) b2 − 4ac > 0
= 4(p − 3)^{2} − 4 × 9 > 0P(P − 6) > 0
p > 6 or p < />
(ii), since x = 6 lies between the two roots.
so, (6)^{2} + 2(p − 3)6 + 9 < />
Hence the correct option is A.
Hence the correct option is D.
A manufacturing company conducted workshops on three techniques namely designing, formatting and testing for its executives. The number of executives who attended the workshop on designing is twice and thrice of the number of executives who attended the workshops on formatting and testing respectively. 42 executives attended the workshop on formatting. The aggregate number of executives who attended the workshops on exactly two techniques is at most 25% of the aggregate number of executives who attended the workshops on exactly one technique. Workshops on any combination of exactly two techniques were attended by more than 1 executive.
If the minimum possible executives attended the workshop on all three techniques, then find the minimum possible number of executives who attended the workshop on designing only.
Since we have to minimise the number of executives who attended the workshop on only designing, we have to maximise the number of executives who attended the workshop on designing, formatting and testing.
A minimum number of employees who attended the workshop on formatting and testing = 2.
A + 2B = 154.
Maximum possible value of B = 25 (Since maximum possible value of B = 0.25A)
The minimum possible value of the number of executives who attended the workshop on only designing.
= 84(25  2) = 61.
How many integers “a” are there such that 9x^{2} + 3ax + (a + 5) > 0 for all values of x ?
⇒ (3a)^{2} 4(9) (a + 5) < 0 or a^{2}  4a  20 < 0 or R (a  2)^{2} < 24
⇒ 2.89
⇒ a = 2, 1,0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
⇒ there are 9 such integral values.
Hence (c) is the correct option.
a, b and c are positive real numbers such that a + b + c = p, where 'p' is a constant. Find the maximum value of (p  a) (p  b)(p  c).
∴ AM ≥ GM
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
Alternative Method:
(p − a) + (p − b) + (p − c) = 2p(constant)
⇒ (p − a)⋅(p − b)⋅(p − c) will be maximum when
p − a = p − b = p − c = 2p/3
Maximum value of the product
What is the remainder when 3^{6001} + 7^{6000} is divided by 13?
728 is divisible by 13, so the remainder is 3.
7^{6000} = (7^{4})^{1500 }= (2401)^{1500 }= (2392 + 9)^{1500}
2392 is divisible by 13, so we have to find the remainder when 9^{1500} is divided by 13.
9^{1500} = (3^{6})^{500} = (729)^{500} = (728 + 1)^{500}
since 728 is divisible by 13, therefore the remainder is 1.
So the net remainder = 3 + 1 = 4

Let M be a threedigit number denoted by ‘ABC’ where A. B and C are numerals from 0 to 9. Let N be a number formed by reversing the digits of M. It is known that M  N + 396C is equal to 990. How many possible values of M are there which are greater than 300?
99A + 297C = 990
A + 3C = 10
C = 1, 2, 3 and A = 7, 4, 1.
For each value of A and C, B can take 10 values. Also, A has to be greater than or equal to 3. So, 4B2 and 7B1 will be the numbers. B can take any value from 0 to 9. So, 20 values in total.
A manufacturing company conducted workshops on three techniques namely designing, formatting and testing for its executives. The number of executives who attended the workshop on designing is twice and thrice of the number of executives who attended the workshops on formatting and testing respectively. 42 executives attended the workshop on formatting. The aggregate number of executives who attended the workshops on exactly two techniques is at most 25% of the aggregate number of executives who attended the workshops on exactly one technique. Workshops on any combination of exactly two techniques were attended by more than 1 executive.
If the maximum possible executives attended the workshop on all three techniques, then find the maximum possible number of executives who attended the workshop on both designing and formatting but not testing.
= 28  (x^{3} + xs + x^{6})
= 28  (0 + 2 + 2) = 24.
Now,
A + 2B = 154
⇒ A + 2B = 154  72 = 82.
Since the maximum value of B can be 0.25A, therefore the maximum possible value of B can be 13.
Therefore the maximum possible number of executives who attended the workshop on designing and formatting.
= 13  (2 + 2) = 9.
25x^{2} + y^{2} = 34 and xy = 3, then value of (125x^{3} + y^{3}) is:
We know that,
(x^{3} + y^{3}) = (x + y) (x^{2} + y^{2} − xy)
(x + y)^{2} = x^{2 }+ y^{2} + 2xy
Now,
25x^{2} + y2 = 34
⇒ 25x^{2} + y^{2} + 10xy = 34 + 10xy
⇒ 25x^{2} + y^{2} + 10xy = 34 + 30
⇒ (5x + y)^{2} = 64
⇒ (5x + y) = 8
So,
(125x^{3} + y^{3})
= (5x + y)(25x^{2} + y^{2} − 5xy)
= (8)(34 − 15)
= 8 × 19
= 152
∴ The value of (125x^{3} + y^{3}) is 152.
Hence, the correct option is (A).

Direction: Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
The most striking feature of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation on the decision to scrap Articles 370 and 35A was its temporal focus: the future. This served to both fill the narrative with hope and skirt the messy political discord preceding and accompanying the decision to remove Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
He also held out the promise that J&K would make the transition from Union territory to full statehood, without setting a deadline for that change. He also made it clear that Ladakh’s separation from what once was a kingdom of disparate regions would be permanent.
The speech carries forward the project of integrating the troubled state into the Indian mainstream by laying out before them an array of opportunities for building a new future for themselves and for the country as a whole.
The prime minister held out carrots aplenty, juicy ones. Better salaries and service conditions for civil servants and J&K policemen, an immediate flurry of jobs as the government moved to fill all vacancies, new scholarships and educational opportunities, new rights as fullfledged citizens of India and new jobs that Indian enterprises, Stateowned and private, would create.
If a leader holds out a carrot, a stick cannot but be part of the package. But if the prime minister wielded one, it was not on display. He did refer to separatism and terror, but implicitly treated them as nothing more than bumps along the road to normalisation and return to statehood.
The detailed list of benefits and legal entitlements that the people of Jammu and Kashmir now stand to gain, governed as they would be by the Constitution and legal system of India, is likely to have the desired impact of shifting the spotlight on the benefits of the political change, from the costs that have been most obvious.
The prime minister did well to announce relaxation, as early as next Monday, when Eid would be celebrated, on the lockdown in place in the state. His call to the rest of India to join in rebuilding the state should rein in lumping temptation to target Kashmiris outside Kashmir.

Direction: Given below are six statements A, B, C, D, E, and F, which when arranged in the correct order, form a coherent and meaningful paragraph. The sentence marked D is fixed and would fit in the fourth position. Rearrange the other statements in a proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph, then answer the questions that follow.
A) While an inquiry is being conducted, it is suspected that the deaths may have occurred due to infighting and disease according to reports.
B) If we don’t check our misuse of natural resources more and more such appalling news will keep surfacing from time to time.
C) Earlier this week, Gujarat’s treasured wildlife reserve suffered a shocking jolt in the form of mass lion deaths.
D) While some have presumably died in infights, others, including three lion cubs, are suspected to have contracted a fatal illness.
E) Infighting in the wild mostly occurs when natural resources are scarce and animals encroach upon each other's territory for basic necessities.
F) 11 lion carcasses were reportedly found in the East division of Gir forest and the deaths have presumably taken place within 10 days as stated by east Gir’s Deputy Conservator of Forest, P Purushothama.
Which of the following will be the third statement after rearrangement?
E could also work as an introduction. But, E introduces the topic of 'infighting in the wild' which doesn’t match with other sentences in the paragraph.
Now, for the next sentence, we need elaboration on the topic introduced in C. F does this perfectly as it gives statistics about the death of lions. Now, an event took place, so we would have consequences. An immediate consequence of the events is that an inquiry was made, as described in A.
So, A comes next. So far, our sequence is CFA. The next is D as it is fixed. The remaining two sentences are B & E. E should come after D as both have a common topic of 'infighting'. This leaves for the last.
So, the sequence becomes CFADEB.
Thus, the third statement after rearrangement is A.
Hence, the correct answer is A.

The most striking feature of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s address to the nation on the decision to scrap Articles 370 and 35A was its temporal focus: the future. This served to both fill the narrative with hope and skirt the messy political discord preceding and accompanying the decision to remove Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
He also held out the promise that J&K would make the transition from Union territory to full statehood, without setting a deadline for that change. He also made it clear that Ladakh’s separation from what once was a kingdom of disparate regions would be permanent.
The speech carries forward the project of integrating the troubled state into the Indian mainstream by laying out before them an array of opportunities for building a new future for themselves and for the country as a whole.
The prime minister held out carrots aplenty, juicy ones. Better salaries and service conditions for civil servants and J&K policemen, an immediate flurry of jobs as the government moved to fill all vacancies, new scholarships and educational opportunities, new rights as fullfledged citizens of India and new jobs that Indian enterprises, Stateowned and private, would create.
If a leader holds out a carrot, a stick cannot but be part of the package. But if the prime minister wielded one, it was not on display. He did refer to separatism and terror, but implicitly treated them as nothing more than bumps along the road to normalisation and return to statehood.
The detailed list of benefits and legal entitlements that the people of Jammu and Kashmir now stand to gain, governed as they would be by the Constitution and legal system of India, is likely to have the desired impact of shifting the spotlight on the benefits of the political change, from the costs that have been most obvious.
The prime minister did well to announce relaxation, as early as next Monday, when Eid would be celebrated, on the lockdown in place in the state. His call to the rest of India to join in rebuilding the state should rein in lumping temptation to target Kashmiris outside Kashmir.
Q. As per the passage, what was the effect of the most striking feature of the Prime Minister’s address to the nation regarding the decision to scrap Articles 370 and 35A?
I. Help in having a debate regarding the pros and cons of scrapping the aforementioned articles

III. Help in painting a picture of hope for the future.
The highlighted portion validates the information given in statements II and III . Thus, statements II and III are correct. However, the address did nothing to encourage further debate regarding the pros and cons of scrapping the articles once the decision had been made.
Hence, the correct option is (D).

The sentence marked D is fixed and would fit in the fourth position. Rearrange the other statements in a proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph, then answer the questions that follow.
A) While an inquiry is being conducted, it is suspected that the deaths may have occurred due to infighting and disease according to reports.
B) If we don’t check our misuse of natural resources more and more such appalling news will keep surfacing from time to time.
C) Earlier this week, Gujarat’s treasured wildlife reserve suffered a shocking jolt in the form of mass lion deaths.
D) While some have presumably died in infights, others, including three lion cubs, are suspected to have contracted a fatal illness.
E) Infighting in the wild mostly occurs when natural resources are scarce and animals encroach upon each other's territory for basic necessities.
F) 11 lion carcasses were reportedly found in the East division of Gir forest and the deaths have presumably taken place within 10 days as stated by east Gir’s Deputy Conservator of Forest, P Purushothama.
Which of the following will be the first statement after rearrangement?
E could also work as an introduction. But, E introduces the topic of 'infighting in the wild' which doesn’t match with other sentences in the paragraph.
Now, for the next sentence, we need elaboration on the topic introduced in C. F does this perfectly as it gives statistics about the death of lions. Now, an event took place, so we would have consequences. An immediate consequence of the events is that an inquiry was made, as described in A.
So, A comes next. So far, our sequence is CFA. The next is D as it is fixed. The remaining two sentences are B & E. E should come after D as both have a common topic of 'infighting'. This leaves for the last.
So, the sequence becomes CFADEB.
Thus, the first statement after rearrangement is C.
Hence, the correct answer is C.

Direction: In the following question, the given sentence has four parts marked as P, Q, R, and S. Choose the part of the sentence with the error and mark it as your answer. If there is no error, mark 'S' as your answer.
Can you tell me (P)/ the name of the person (Q)/ whom wrote the book? (R)/ No error (S)
In the given sentence, there is no subject for the verb 'wrote'.
'Who' and 'whom' are relative pronouns. 'Whom' is the accusative (objective) form of 'who'.
'Whom' is used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition. 'Who' is used to refer to the subject of a sentence.
Correct sentence: Can you tell me the name of the person who wrote the book?
Hence, the correct option is (C).
If sum of n terms is an A.P is given by S_{n} = 2n^{2} + n then find the 10th term.
S_{n} = 2n^{2} + n.
For S_{n−1}, We will put (n − 1) at the place of n.
⇒ T_{n} = S_{n} − S_{n−1} = (2n^{2} + n) − {2(n − 1)^{2} + (n − 1)}
⇒ T_{n} = 2n^{2} + n − {2(n^{2 }− 2n + 1) + n − 1}
⇒ Tn = 2n^{2} + n − {2n^{2 }− 4n + 2 + n − 1}
⇒ T_{n} = 2n^{2} + n − 2n^{2} + 3n − 2+1
⇒ T_{n} = 4n − 1
Therefore, T_{10} = 4×10^{−1} = 39
Hence, the correct answer is 39.
In Sahara hospital, the average salary of 9 nurses is Rs. 3600 while the average salary of 11 ward boys is Rs. 4400 and the average salary of all doctors is Rs. 22000. If average salary of entire staff is Rs. 7632, then find the number of doctors working in Sahara hospital.
The average salary of 9 nurses is Rs. 3600 while the average salary of 11 ward boys is Rs. 4400.
The average salary of all the doctors is Rs 22000.
Total salary of 9 nurses = 3600 × 9 = Rs. 32400
Total salary of 11 ward boys = 4400 × 11 = Rs. 48400
Let the total number of all doctors in hospital be ' d '.
Total salary of ' d ' number of doctors = d × 22000 = Rs. 22000d
The average salary of entire staff is Rs. 7632
Total salary of entire staff = (9 + 11 + d) × 7632 = (20 + d) × 7632
Total salary of entire staff = Total salary of 9 nurses + Total salary of 11 ward boys + Total salary of ' d ' number of doctors
⇒ (20 + d) × 7632 = 32400 + 48400 + 22000d
⇒ 152640 + 7632d = 80800 + 22000d
⇒ 22000d − 7632d = 152640 − 80800
⇒ 14368d = 71840
⇒ d = 71840/14368 = 5
∴ There are 5 doctors available in Sahara hospital.
Hence, the correct answer is 5.
Two horses P and Q are running at a certain point at the speed of 15 km/hr and 17 km/hr respectively. What is the distance between them after 5 hrs if they running in the opposite directions?
Two horses P and Q are running at a certain point at the speed of 15 km/hr and 17 km/hr respectively.
If the speed of the two trains is x km/hr and y km/hr respectively if x > y.
Relative speed, if opposite directions = (x + y) km / hr
Speed = Distance/Time
Relative speed of both horses = 17 + 15 = 32 km/hr
Distance between them after 5 hrs = 32 × 5 = 160 km
Hence, the correct answer is 160 km.
Evaluate 2(secA − cosA)^{2} + 2(cosecA − sinA)^{2} − 2(cotA − tanA)^{2 }− 2.
2(sec A − cos A)^{2 }+ 2(cosec A − sin A)^{2} − 2(cot A − tan A)^{2 }− 2
= 2[(sec A − cos A)^{2} + (cosec A − sin A)^{2} − (cot A − tan A)^{2} − 1]
= 2[sec^{2} A + cos^{2 }A − 2sec A cos A + cosec^{2 }A + sin^{2 }A − 2 cosec A sin A − cot^{2}A − tan^{2 }A + 2cot A tan A −1]
= 2[sec^{2} A + cos^{2}A − 2 + cosec^{2 }A + sin^{2}A − 2 − cot^{2} A − tan^{2} A + 2 −1]
= 2[(cos^{2}A + sin^{2 }A) + (sec^{2} A − tan^{2 }A) + (cosec^{2 }A − cot^{2 }A) − 3]
[∵ cos^{2 }A + sin^{2 }A = 1, sec^{2} A − tan^{2} A = 1 and cosec^{2 }A − cot^{2 }A = 1]
= 2[1 + 1 + 1 − 3]
= 0
Hence, the correct answer is 0.

The ratio of the speed of train Before accident and after accident is 3 ∶ 2. After an accident train travels 400 km in 5 hours. Find the original speed of train before the accident.
The ratio of the speed of train Before accident and after accident = 3 : 2
Distance travelled after an accident =400 km
Time taken = 5 hours
Speed = Distance/Time
Let 3x and 2x be the speed of the train before and after an accident respectively.
Speed of train after an accident = 400/5 = 80 km/hr
⇒ 2x = 80 km/hr
⇒ x = 40 km/hr
Then, speed of the train before an accident = 3x = 40 × 3 = 120 km/hr
∴ Original speed of the train before the accident is 120 km/hr.
Hence, the correct answer is 120 km/hr.
From (1) and (2)
x = 1
Choose whether (A > B) / (A < b)="" or="" a="" />
Hence, the correct answer is A > B.
Comparing (1 − 0.84) (0.84^{2} + 0.84 + 1) with (a − b)(a^{2} + ab + b^{2})
(a − b) (a^{2} + ab + b^{2}) = a^{3} − b^{3} = 1^{3} − 0.843
∴ The value of x is 2.5.
Hence, the correct answer is 2.5.
The area of triangle with vertices A(3, 0), B(7, 0) and C(8, 4):
= [1/2 [x_{1}(y_{2 }− y_{3}) + x_{2}(y_{3} − y_{1}) + x_{3}(y_{1} − y_{2})]]
Here, x_{1} = 3, y_{1 }= 0, x_{2} = 7, y_{2} = 0, x_{3} = 8, y_{3} = 4
= 1/2[ 3 (0 − 4) + 7(4 − 0) + 8(0 − 0)]
= 1/2[−12 + 28 − 0] = 1/2 (16) = 8
Hence, the correct answer is 8.
The base of a rightangled triangle is 12 cm and the difference between the other two sides is 6 cm. What will be the perimeter of the triangle?
Base = 12 cm
P^{2} + b^{2} = h^{2}
Let height be x cm
So, hypotenous is (x + 6)cm
(x + 6)^{2} − x^{2 }= 144
⇒ x^{2 }+ 36 + 12x − x^{2} = 144
⇒12x =108
x = 9
Height = 9 cm
So, hypotenuse is 15 cm
Perimeter = 9 + 12 + 15
= 36 cm
∴ The perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm.
Hence, the correct answer is 36 cm.
In a mixture 60 liters, the ratio of milk and water 2 : 1. If this ratio is to be 1 : 2, then the quantity of water to be further added is:
Quantity of water in it = (60 − 40) litres = 20 litres
New ratio = 1 : 2
Let quantity of water to be added further be x litres
Then, milk:
∴ Quantity of water to be added =60 litres.
Hence, the correct answer is 60 litres.
A line passes through (1,1) and is perpendicular to the line 3x + y = 7. Its xintercept is:
3x + y = 7
Y = −3x + 7
The slope of line = m = −3
Then the slope of a line perpendicular to it is −1/m = 1/3
The equation of line passing through (1,1) with slope " 1/3 " is:
⇒ 3y − 3 = x − 1
⇒ 3y = x + 2
⇒ 3y − x = 2
For xintercept, y = 0
∴ x = −2
So, the xintercept of line is −2.
Hence, the correct answer is −2.
Hence, the correct answer is 32/3.
If log2 = 0.3010 and log3 = 0.4771, the value of log_{5} 512 is:

If the ninedigit number 7p5964q28 is completely divisible by 88, what is the value of (p^{2} − q), for the largest value of q, where p and q are natural numbers?
⇒ 92/88 = 116
For q = 9, then
Number should be divisible by 11
= (7 + 5 + 6 + 9 + 8) − (p + 9 + 4 + 2)
= 20 − p
(20 − p) should be divisible by 11 then for p = 9 this condition will satisfy.
So, possible value of p = 9
Then,
∴ p^{2} − q = 81 − 9 = 72
Hence, the correct answer is 72.
Find the number of digits in 1764^{40}, given that log 6 = 0.778 and log 7 = 0.845
log 1764^{40} = 40 log (6^{2} × 7^{2})
⇒ 40 (2 log 6 + 2 log 7)
⇒ 40 (2 × 0.778 + 2 × 0.845)
⇒ 40 (1.556 + 1.69)
⇒ 40 (3.246)
⇒ 129.84
So, number of digits in 1764^{40} = [(log 1764^{40}) + integral part of 1]
⇒ 129 + 1 = 130 digits
Hence, the correct answer is 130.
