Economic liberalization and globalization have put pressure on Indian industry, particularly on the service sector, to offer quality products and services at low costs and with high speed.

Organizations have to compete with unequal partners from abroad. It is well recognized that developing countries like India are already behind other countries technologically, in many areas, although some of them particularly India, boast of huge scientific and technical manpower. In addition to this, if an entrepreneur or industrialist has to spend a lot of his time, money and energy in dealing with unpredictable services and in negotiating with the local bureaucracy, it can have a significant dampening effect on business.

How many students from the class secured First Class?

I. The number of students securing First Class was equal to the number of students who failed and was one-third of the number of students passed in the class of 120 Students.

II. 1/4 th of the girls, i.e. 10 and 1/4 th of the boys secured Ist class in the class of 120 students.

Solution: From Statement I

Let the number of students securing First

Class = x

∴ Number of students who failed = x

Number of students who passed = 3x

According to question

3x + x = 120

∴ x = 120/4 = 30

From Statement II

Number of girls in the class = 10 x 4 = 40

∴ Number of boys in the class = 120 - 40

= 80

∴ Number of students who secured First Class

= 10 + 80/4 = 10+20 = 30

In a college five different subjects, viz Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Mathematics are taught on five different days of the week, starting from Monday and ending on Friday. Is Chemistry taught on Wednesday?

I. Two subjects are taught between Zoology and Mathematics. Mathematics is taught before Zoology. Chemistry is taught on the day immediately next to the day when Physics is taught on tuesday.

II. Three lectures are scheduled between the lectures of Botany and Zoology. Mathematics is taught immediately before Physics.

Solution:

Statement I: We note that Physics is taught on Tuesday, and Chemistry the next day. So chemistry will be taught on Wednesday. Statement(I) alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement II: Since 3 lectures are between Botany and Zoology, Botany is on Monday and Zoology is on Friday or Botany is on Friday and Zoology is on Monday. Since Mathematics is immediately before Physics, Mathematics and Physics have to be on Tuesday and Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday. In both cases, Chemistry is not on Wednesday. So Statement(II) alone is also sufficient.

QUESTION: 28

Direction: In the question below are given three statements followed by three conclusions numbered I, II and III, You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from the commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.

Statements:

I. All fruits are vegetables.

II. All pens are vegetables.

III. All vegetables are rains.

Conclusions:

I. All fruits are rains.

II. All pens are rains.

III. Some rains are vegetables.

Solution:

The possible Venn diagram-

III is the converse of the third premise and so it holds.

All fruits are vegetables. All vegetables are rains.

The conclusion must be universal affirmative and should not contain the middle term.

So, it follows that 'All fruits are rains'. Thus, I follows.

All pens are vegetables. All vegetables are rains.

Clearly, it follows that 'All pens are rains'. Thus, II follows and from the diagram "Some rains are vegetables." is also follows.

Hence, the correct option is (E).

QUESTION: 29

Direction: In each of the questions below are given three statements followed by three conclusions numbered I, II and III, You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from the commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.

Statements: Some towels are brushes. No brush is soap. All soaps are rats.

Conclusions:

I. Some rats are brushes.

II. No rat is brush.

III. Some towels are soaps.

Solution: Some towels are brushes. No brush is soap.

Since one premise is particular and the other negative, the conclusion must be particular negative (O-type) and should not contain the middle term. So, it follows that 'Some towels are not soaps'. No brush is soap. All soaps are rats.

Since the middle term is distributed twice, the conclusion must be particular. Since one premise is negative, the conclusion must be negative. So, it follows that 'Some brushes are not rats'. Since I and II involve the same terms and form a complementary pair, so either I or II follows.

QUESTION: 30

Direction: In each of the questions below are given three statements followed by three conclusions numbered I, II and III, You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from the commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusions logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.

Solution:

III is the converse of the second premise and so it holds.

Some pictures are frames. Some frames are idols.

Since both the premises are particular, no definite conclusion follows.

Some frames are idols. All idols are curtains.

Since one premise is particular, the conclusion must be particular and should not contain the middle term. So, it follows that 'Some frames are curtains'. III is the converse of this conclusion and so it holds.

Some pictures are frames. Some frames are curtains.

Since both the premises are particular, no definite conclusion can be drawn.

QUESTION: 31

Direction: In each of the questions below are given three statements followed by three conclusions numbered I, II and III, You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance from the commonly known facts.

Since both the premises are particular, no definite conclusion follows.

Some rivers are deserts. All deserts are roads.

Since one premise is particular, the conclusion must be particular and shouldn't contain the middle term. So, it follows that 'Some rivers are roads'. I is the converse of this conclusion and so it holds.

Some hills are rivers. Some rivers are roads.

Again, since both the premises are particular, no definite conclusion follows.

QUESTION: 38

Direction: The company P has a Mon-Fri work schedule, while company Q has a Mon-Sat work schedule. Due to this reason, the manager of P feels less stressed than that of Q. Also, we know that the more a manager feels in control of his work life, the less stress she feels. So, we can conclude that the manager of P feels more in control of his work life than the manager of Q.

Which of the following is the flaw in the above reasoning?

Solution: Option B is eliminated as this would have been true had the passage concluded that both these factors cause the manager of P to feel more control over her work life. Option C is eliminated as the argument makes no assumption of this sort. Option D is eliminated as the information cited stays relevant and true to the context. Option E is eliminated as the passage itself specifies that the reason why the manager of P feels less stressed than that of Q, is because of a shorter work week. Option A is the right answer, as it correctly captures the flaw in the reasoning.

Directions: There are four points which are situated in the ground. Point R is situated 45° to the South - East of G and is 200√2 meter away from it. R is 360 meter to the North of H whereas point E is 480 meter to the West of H.

Q. What is the approximate distance between E and G?

Solution: We will get following figure based of the information given in the question;

It is clear that triangle GRX is a right angled triangle where

GX = XR

Since GR = 200√2 m

Hence; GX = XR = 200m

Again if we will see then triangle GET is also a right angled triangle hence; GE2 = GT2 + ET2

=> GE2 = (360 + 200)2 + (480 - 200)2

=> GE2 = 5602 + 2802

=> GE = 626 = 625 m (approx)

Total male population of Mangalore = 210% of 100y = 210y

Total population of Mangalore = 100y + 210y = 6.2 million

310y = 6.2

y = 0.02

Total female population of Mangalore = 100y = 2 million

Total male population of Mangalore = 210y = 4.2 million

Total female population of all the five cities together = 14 million

Total male population of all the five cities together = 40 - 14 = 26 million

Total female population of Bangalore = 14 - 8.8 = 5.2 million

Total female population of Belgaum = x = 14 - (5.2 + 2 + 2.7 + 2.6) = 1.5 million

Total male population of Belgaum = 3z = 4.5 million

Total population of Belgaum = 4x = 6 million

Total male population of Bangalore = 26 - (4.2 + 4.5 + 6.7 + 3.8) = 6.8 million

Total population of Bangalore = 6.8 + 5.2 = 12 million

In next year,

Total female population of city Mangalore = 110% of 2 = 2.2 million

Total female population of city Gulbarga = 120% of 2.6 = 3.12 million

Total female population in all the five cities together = 5.2 + 2.2 + 1.5 + 2.7 + 3.12 = 14.72 million

QUESTION: 114

Time taken by A to complete a work is twice of time taken by B to complete the work. B is 1.5 times as efficient as C. If A, B, and C together can complete the work in 7(5/13) days, then in how many days A alone can complete the whole work?

Solution: Ratio of time taken by A and B = 2: 1 = 4: 2

And, Ratio of efficiency of B and C = 1.5: 1 = 3: 2

So, Ratio of time taken by B and C = 2: 3

So, ratio of time taken by A, B and C = 4: 2: 3

Let A = 4x days, B = 2x days and C = 3x days

=> x = 8

Then, A alone can complete the work in 32 days

QUESTION: 115

A boat takes 3 hours more to row upstream than to row downstream for the same distance. If the difference between the squares of speeds of boat and stream is 60 (km/hr)2, then what can be the values of distance travelled in upstream and speed of stream?

Solution: Let the speeds of boat and stream be 'b' and 'r' respectively.

Let the distance travelled upstream or downstream [ Both are same in this case] be 'd'.

Time taken to travel upstream

= d/(b-r) [ Time = Distance/speed, Speed is taken as b - r as the stream will oppose the boat during upstream journey]

Similarly, Time taken to travel downstream

= d/(b+r) [Speed is taken as b + r as the stream will aid the boat]

According to the condition,

d/(b-r) = [d/(b+r)]+3

⇒ d × [1/(b-r)-1/(b+r)] = 3

⇒ d × 2r/(b2-r2) = 3

⇒ 2rd = 3(b2-r2) = 3 × 60 = 180

⇒ rd = 90

Out of the given options, only (d)satisfies this equation.

QUESTION: 123

In the following question, two quantities numbered I and II are given. Calculate the values of both quantities and choose the correct option.

A task is given to three persons P, Q and R, time taken by all the three persons together to finish that task is 10(2/3) days.

Quantity I: What will be the time taken by persons P and Q together to finish that task if time taken by R alone to finish that task is 48 days.

Quantity II: What will be the time taken by persons P and R together to finish that task if time taken by Q alone to finish that task is 24 days.

Solution: According to question-

(1/P) + (1/Q) + (1/R) = (3/32) ........ (1)

Quantity 1:

R = 48 days

From equation (1)-

(1/P) + (1/Q) + (1/48) = (3/32)

(1/P) + (1/Q) = (3/32) - (1/48)

(1/P) + (1/Q) = (9 - 2)/96

(1/P) + (1/Q) = 7/96

Time taken by P and Q together to finish the task = 96/7 = 13(5/7) days

Quantity 2:

Q = 24 days

From equation (1)-

(1/P) + (1/24) + (1/R) = (3/32)

(1/P) + (1/R) = (3/32) - (1/24)

(1/P) + (1/R) = (9 - 4)/96

(1/P) + (1/R) = 5/96

Time taken by P and R together to finish the task = 96/5 = 19.2 days

Hence, Quantity 1 < Quantity 2

QUESTION: 124

In a conical vessel of base radius 12 cm and height 8 cm water is filled up to a height of 6 cm. The whole water present in the conical vessel is poured into a cylindrical vessel of base radius 6 cm, then find the level of water in the cylindrical vessel after pouring.

Solution: Radius of level of water at the top = 12 × 2/8 = 3 cm

Volume of water in the vessel = Volume of conical frustum = [1/3π ×(12)2 × 8] - [1/3π× (3)2 ×2]

=> (1/3)π[(144 × 8) - (9 × 2)] = 378π cm3

Let the height of water in cylindrical vessel = H cm

Volume of water in the cylindrical vessel = π * (6)2 × H = 378π cm3

=> H = 378/36= 10.5 cm

QUESTION: 125

In following questions, two quantities numbered I and II are given. Calculate values of both quantities and choose the correct option.

Quantity I: If ratio of radius of base to the height of a right circular cylinder is 7:13 and its total surface area is 220 cm2, then what is the volume of the right circular cylinder? (In cm3)

Quantity II: 200

Solution:

For Quantity I:

Let radius of base and height of right circular cylinder are 7s and 13s respectively

Total surface area of a right circular cylinder

= 2π × 7s × (20s)

880s2 = 220

s2 = (1/4)

s = (1/2) =0.5 cm

So, radius of base and height are 3.5 cm and 6.5 cm respectively.

Volume of cylinder = πr2h

= (22/7) × 3.5 × 3.5 × 6.5

= 250.25 cm3

For quantity II:

200

So, Quantity I = Quantity II + 50.25

Total no. of balls = 5+x.

Probability of both the drawn balls being blue is 5C2/[5+x C2] = 5! [3!2!] . 2!(3+x)!/ [(5+x)!].

(5)(4)/[(4+x)(5+x)] =5/14

x2 + 9x-36=0

(x+12)(x-3)=0

x=-12, or x=3. The negative value is naturally not admissible.

QUESTION: 127

In the following question, two statements numbered I and II are given. On solving them we get two quantities, quantity I and quantity II respectively. Solve for both the quantities and choose the correct option.

Quantity I: Cost price of 4 kg of rice which is sold at Rs 80/kg after giving a discount of 20% and which was marked up by 25%.

Quantity II: Selling price of 6 kg of wheat which was bought at Rs 50/kg and was marked up by 20% and sold at a discount of 25%.

Solution:

Quantity I:

S.P = Rs 80/kg

M.P = 80/(1 - 20/100) = Rs 100/kg

C.P of 4 kg = 4*100/(1 + 25/100) = Rs 320

Quantity II:

C.P = Rs 50/kg

M.P = 50(1 + 20/100) = Rs 60/kg

S.P of 6 kg = 6*60*(1 - 25/100) = Rs 270

Solution: Expenditure and Saving of Persons can be calculated as

Saving = (Salary - Total expenditure)

JAY:

Salary = 35000

Rent = 35000 x 18/100 = 6300

Grocery = 35000 x 36/100 = 12600

Miscellaneous = 7700

Saving = (35000 - (6300 + 12600 + 7700)) = 8400

Ram:

Salary = 45000

Grocery = 45000 x 28/100 = 12600

Miscellaneous = 14400

Saving = 12600

Rent = (45000 - (12600 + 14400 + 12600)) = 5400

Divya:

Salary = 42500

Rent = 42500 x 30/100 = 12750

Grocery = 42500 x 20/100 = 8500

Saving = 10200

Miscellaneous = (42500 - (12750 + 8500 + 10200)) = 11050

Kavita:

Salary = 30000

Grocery = 30000 x 36/100 = 10800

Miscellaneous = 6600

Saving = 7200

Rent = (30000 - (10800 + 6600 + 7200)) = 5400

Krish:

Salary = 28000

Rent = 28000 x 20/100 = 5600

Grocery = 28000 x 40/100 = 11200

Miscellaneous = 7000

Saving = 28000 - (5600 + 11200 + 7000) = 4200

Vijay:

Salary = 22500

Rent = 22500 x 20/100 = 4500

Miscellaneous = 8100

Saving = (48450 - (8400 + 12600 + 10200 + 7200 + 4200) = 5850

Grocery = (22500 - 4500 + 8100 + 5850 = 4050

Based on above data we gets following results:

Salary of Jay and Ram = (35000 + 45000) = 80000

Salary of Vijay and Divya = (22500 + 42500) = 65000

Required percent = 80000-65000/65000 x 100 ≈ 23%

Q. Over the period 2005-2006, if sales (value-wise) of IBM PC's increased by 50% and of Apple by 15% assuming that PC sales of all other computer companies remained the same, by what percentage (approximately) would the PC sales in New York (value-wise) increase over the same period ?

Solution: If we assume the total sales to be 100 in the first year, IBM's sales would go up by 50% (from 28 to 42) contributing an increase of 14 to the total sales value.

Similarly, Apple's increase of 15% would contribute an increase of 2.1 to the total sales value. The net change would be 14 + 2.1 on 100. (i.e., 16.1%).

QUESTION: 141

In the following question, two statements numbered I and II are given. On solving them we get two quantities, quantity I and quantity II respectively. Solve for both quantities and choose the correct option.

Akhil, Bharti and Chatur entered into a partnership and invested Rs 3000, Rs 4000 and Rs 6000 respectively.

Quantity I: After 8 months Akhil invested Rs 1000 more, Bharti withdrew Rs 1000 and Chatur withdrew Rs 2000. If the profit at the end of the year was Rs 74,000, what is the difference between the values of Chatur's and Akhil's share?

Quantity II: Rs 10,000

Solution: Profit will be distributed in the ratio

(3000×8+4000×4):(4000×8+3000×4):(6000×8+4000×4)

= 10:11:16

Difference between the values of Chatur's and Akhil's share

= (16/37-10/37)×74000 = Rs 12,000

QUESTION: 142

Hans borrows Rs. 7000 at a simple interest from the village moneylender. At the end of 3years, he again borrows Rs. 3000 and closes his account after paying Rs. 4615 as interest after 8 years from the time he made the first borrowing. Find the rate of interest.

Solution: Replace the solution with the following

Given that, Hans borrowed Rs. 7000 at a simple interest

Let 'r' be the rate of interest

Simple interest paid for the first three years is (7000×3×r)/100

At the end of 3 years, he again borrows Rs. 3000

Simple interest paid for the next five years is (10000×5×r)/100

Hans paid Rs.4615 as simple interest at the end of 8 years

Now, (7000×3×r)/100+ (10000×5×r)/100 = 46/15

210r + 500r = 4615

710r = 4615

r = 6.5

QUESTION: 143

In following question, two quantities numbered I and II are given. Calculate values of both quantities and choose the correct option.

Quantity I: A box contains 10 red cards, 15 green cards and 20 white cards. If 2 cards are picked randomly from it, then what is the probability that it contains at most 1 white card?

Quantity II: 9/11

Solution: For Quantity I

If two cards picked probability that all 2 cards

= (20C2)/(45C2)

= (20 x 19)/(45 x 44)

= (19/99)

Probability that at most 1 white card = 1- (19/99)

= 80/99

For Quantity II:

9/11

So, Quantity II > Quantity I

QUESTION: 144

Ram can save 1 hour to cover the distance of 200 km if he travels 15 km extra in 90 minutes than his planned distance. How much time will Ram take to cover 300 km with his planned speed?

Solution: Let the regular speed of Ram be S km/hr

As Ram must cover 15 km extra in 90 minutes to save 1 hour, so he must cover 10 km extra in 1 hour.

So, his new speed = (S +10) km/hr

S2 +10S -2000 =0

S = 40 or -50

Speed is always positive, so planned speed = 40 km/hr

Time required to cover 300 km = 300/40 = 7.5 hours.

QUESTION: 146

Directions : The following table shows different plans offered by a lender, type of interest and rates of interest applicable during first, second and third years.

(Note: Some values are missing, you need to calculate those values if required.)

Q. Rates of interest for the first year under plan A and E are 8 2/3% and 7 3/5% respectively. A person borrows a total of Rs.30000 partially under plan A and E and pays a total interest of Rs.5540 at the end of third year. How much amount does he borrow under plan A?

Solution: Let the amount borrowed under plan A be Rs. x

Effective rate of interests for three years:

Total interest = 19% of x + 18% of (30000 - x)

⇒ 5540 = 18% of 30000 + 1% of x

⇒ x = Rs. 14000
