Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 1

Read the following sentences and choose the option that best arranges them in a logical order.

1. Finally he took a wrong turn and ran a few steps past me, towards the hamlet, crying, Johnny, black Dog, Drik, and other names, you won't leave old Pew, mates-not old Pew!

2. This quarrel was the saving of us, for while it was still raging, another sound came from the top of the hill on the side of the hamlet-the tramp of horses galloping.

3. And that was plainly the last signal, of danger, for the buccaneers turned at once and ran, separating in every direction, one seaward along the cove, one slant across the hill, and so on, so that in half a minute not a sign of them remained but Pew.

4. Him they had deserted, whether in sheer panic or out of revenge for his ill words and blows I know not: but there he remained behind, tapping up and down the road in a frenzy, and groping and calling for his comrades.

5. Almost at the same time a pistol-, flash and report, came from the hedge side.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 1 Sentence 2 and 3 form mandatory pair since the both specifically describe the given situation. Same time in sentence 5 refers to the time mentioned in sentence 2 when another sound came from top of the hills. Sentence 3 follows the chronology and sums up the description given in sentence 5. Him they had deserted mentioned in sentence 4 refers to Pew mentioned in sentence 3, so sentence 3 must come before sentence 4. Sentence 4 describes the actions of Pews and must follow sentence 4. Only option 3 follows that pattern, and should therefore be the right answer.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 2

Rearrange the following sentences (A), (B),(C), (D) and (E) to make a meaningful paragraph and

accordingly select the correct option :

(A) But use them to buy your flock

(B) And he gave the boy his blessing

(C) Take to the fields, and someday you'll learn that our countryside is the best, and our women the most beautiful

(D) I wanted them to be a part of your inheritance

(E) I found these one day in the fields

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 2 The correct sequence is EDACB Statement E is the first sentence as it introduces the topic i.e. 'something is found', and this is discussed in the remaining sentences.

Statement D follows statement E, as it continues the discussion about the thing which was found in the fields Instead of giving that as inheritance, he wants him to buy flock. This statement is continuation of statement D Statement C tells what to do after purchasing a flock. Hence, it follows statement A Statement B concludes the passage. After giving the thing which he found in the field and suggesting him what to do, he leaves after blessing the boy.

I found these one day in the fields. I wanted them to be a part of your inheritance.

But use them to buy your flock. Take to the fields, and someday you'll learn that our countryside is the best, and our women the most beautiful. And he gave the boy his blessing

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 3

Directions: Answer the questions based on the passage given below:

The guy sitting grimly alone in the corner of the office may not be anti-social. He may, in fact, even be working. That could be one of the inferences drawn from a recent survey conducted by America Online and Salary.com. Socializing with coworkers, spacing out and surfing the Web could, says that survey, cost US companies as much as $ 759 billion in salary. The survey of 10,044 employees debunks some popular myths. Men and women are found to have wasted an equal amount of time at work.

Older workers were significantly more attentive. As compared to the overall average of two hours a day being wasted, lunchtime not counted, workers over 55 were found to have wasted just 30 minutes. While 33% of the respondents said they wasted time because they didn't have enough work, 25% said they did so because they were underpaid. However, not all time-wasting activities are detrimental to the organization. Salary.com senior vice-president Bill Coleman felt that personal use of the Internet could even be positive since it could generate new business ideas if not contributed to a happier work environment. "There is such a thing as creative waste. Not all wasted time is bad," Coleman was quoted by Reuters as saying.

A survey on time-wasting in Indian organizations could throw up interesting results. The most irritating waste of time is when those working inside the office are asked for directions by visitors. With receptionists and security staff also doing duty at the switchboard for telephone calls, it is usually the employee nearest the entrance who has to field queries ranging from "Where is so and so?" to "Where is the toilet?" However, the most formally-sanctioned way of wasting time in the Indian organization remains the office-meeting. Organizations are known to hold meetings at the drop of a hat. Even a decision to cut down on meetings would be taken at a meeting! The conference-hall is bigger than the canteen which serves a more useful purpose!

Q. The central idea of the passage relates to:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 3 The central idea of the passage is 'time wasting in organizations'. The passage does not discuss much about why time is wasted or ill-effects of time wasting as compared to time wasting.

And since the first passage focuses on time wasting in US organizations, the central idea cannot be specific to Indian organisations.

Hence, option 2

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 6

Directions: Answer the questions based on the passage given below:

Q. From the passage, it may be inferred that:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 6 Out of 10044 people surveyed, 33% said they wasted time as they did not have any work and 25% said they wasted as they were under paid. Hence, we can infer that more than 58% of the people admitted to having wasted time at work.

Hence, option 1

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 7

Directions: relate to the following article:

Pick up a glossy magazine or newspaper supplement and there will almost certainly be at least one double page spread that looks like a regular editorial page but is headed up either 'promotion' or 'advertisement'. These hybrids - unattractively but aptly called advertorials -are being used with increasing frequency by a growing number of companies. Traditionally the preserve of high-technology clients with a complicated message to get across to potential customers, the use of this technique has now spread to sectors like financial services, alcohol and automobiles. One major reason why marketing departments are becoming more receptive to ideas for advertorials is that publishers are pursuing them more aggressively at a time of shrinking ad budgets, while they are being treated far more professionally in a bid to persuade clients that this is a creative opportunity to spread their message to their target audiences. Pouring more imagination into them allied with raising production standards has also been a means whereby the commercial executives of magazines and newspapers can try to convince sceptical editors who strongly disapprove of blurring the advertising / editorial line of their worth.

What advertorials are about is control - controlling the message in an editorial format. Positive editorial coverage of a company and / or its products in credible publications is the best publicity any company can hope for, but often proves elusive. A successful advertorial can pinpoint the way the company delivers its message to the heart of its target audience. High technology was one of the main sources of early advertorials - unsurprisingly, the products are complex and need to be explained with some technical detail to get the story across. That is not so easy with traditional advertising.

Advertorials can also to some degree circumvent journalistic indifference to what a company is doing because editorial coverage has already been so extensive. For example, in the case of a company like Compaq, whose swift growth in the computer market attracted many inches of editorial space, that very success can lead to journalists wondering how they can write something different about Compaq. There can be diminishing returns from an editorial point of view. So advertorials let the company present things editorially but with bought space. While they should be strongly labelled, information is being given to readers in a format that looks familiar.

Q. In the light of your reading of the passage above, identify the option that contains the set of words CLOSEST in meaning to the set of words in CAPITALS

SCEPTICAL: CIRCUMVENT: ELUSIVE

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 7 Sceptical means 'not easily convinced; having doubts or reservations'

Circumvent means 'find a way around (an obstacle)'

Elusive means 'difficult to find, catch, or achieve'

Hence, only option 2 is closest to the meanings of the words given

Q. In the above passage, the phrase "blurring the advertising / editorial line of their worth" implies

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 8 Editorials are an opinion piece written by the senior editorial staff or publisher of a newspaper, magazine, or any other written document. Editorials may be supposed to reflect the opinion of the periodical.

Hence, if editorials carry articles promoting the products, then it will dilute the perceived quality of the editorials Hence, option 1

Q. The passage DOES NOT discuss

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 9 The passage mainly discusses about advertorials and the publishing industry. Hence, option 2 is wrong It is also discussed in the passage that industries are using advertorials to promote the products From third paragraph, "High technology was one of the main sources of early advertorials - unsurprisingly, the products are complex and need to be explained with some technical detail to get the story across."

Hence, only 'attitude of journalists towards advertising' is not discussed in the passage

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 35

Each sentence below has two blanks, each blank indicating that something has been omitted. Choose the set of words for each blank that best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole.

The popularity of interactive media such as World Wide Web (www) has been growing at a rapid pace. From a marketing perspective, this has __________ itself in two ways: firstly, a ________ increase in the number of companies that seek to use the www to communicate with (potential) customers, and secondly, the rapid adoption of the www by broad consumer segments for a variety of purposes.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 35 Option 2 has the words: remonstrated, which means protested, and discernible, which means noticeable. The second word fits in the context of the passage. The first word however, makes no contextual sense. Therefore, Option 2 is eliminated.

Option 3 has the words: proclaimed, which means announced officially, and trifling, which means insignificant. The first word has a meaning which fits with the passage's context. For the second word, we need to read the passage carefully. Although the word 'trifling' makes literal sense, but it contradicts the passage's context. In the first sentence, we are told about the massive popularity of the www, which means that its effect must also be considerable, i.e. it cannot have a trifling or small increase in the number of companies that use it, it must have a massive increase. This makes it clear that we need an antonym of 'trifling' in place of the second blank. Option 3 is thus eliminated.

Option 4 has the words evinced, which means indicated, and conspicuous, which means noticeable. The second word fits in the context of the passage, while the first makes no sense. Option 4 is thus eliminated.

Option 5 has the words: actuated, which means activated, and nugatory, which means insignificant. The first word makes no sense in the context of the passage. The second word, though making literal sense, defies contextual sense (same logic as used for not using Option 3). Thus, Option 5 is eliminated.

Option 1 has the words: manifested, which means presented, and drastic, which means extreme. Both words fit perfectly in the context of the passage, and thus Option 1 is the right answer.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 36

Select the word which is opposite in meaning to the word in capitals:

The questions below are based on the reasoning contained in brief statements or passages. For some questions, more than one of the choices could conceivably answer the question. However, you are to choose the best answer; that is, the response that most accurately and completely answers the question. You should not make assumptions that are by common sense standards implausible, superfluous, or incompatible with the passage. An oligarchy is a government run by a small, conservative faction. Often, oligarchies consist of families such as the Royal family in Saudi Arabia. Like the Royal family in Saudi Arabia, no one person in an oligarchy has the power to make a particular investment. Therefore, risky investments are never made by oligarchies. The conclusion of the argument is valid if which one of the following is assumed?

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 52

The questions below are based on the reasoning contained in brief statements or passages. For some questions, more than one of the choices could conceivably answer the question. However, you are to choose the best answer; that is, the response that most accurately and completely answers the question. You should not make assumptions that are by common sense standards implausible, superfluous, or incompatible with the passage. Here-and-There Import Company has always shown a quarterly loss whenever the value of the dollar falls 7% or more against the yen in the previous fiscal quarter. The company had a loss this quarter. Therefore, the dollar must have fallen at least 7% against the yen last quarter.

Which of the following exhibits a parallel pattern of reasoning as the argument above?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 52 With a parallel pattern of reasoning questions, we first identify the structure and validity of the passage, and then consider each answer-choice in turn. The argument in the passage may be diagrammed as follows: Dollar drops > Quarterly loss Quarterly loss ∴ Dollar dropped This argument is invalid since it commits the fallacy of affirming the conclusion. Consider choice (D): Sunny > Biff goes to beach Biff goes to beach

∴ Sunny The answer is (D). As for (A), a diagram shows: 4th of July weekend > Parking enforced Parking enforced

∴ July 4th This appears to have the same structure as the original passage, but it is in fact much stronger. While the premise in (A) discusses the 4th of July weekend, the choice concludes the day is July 4th itself. Choices (B) and (C) exhibit valid reasoning and therefore can not be parallel to the original argument. Finally, it’s hard to know exactly what choice (E) is saying.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 60

The questions below are based on the reasoning contained in brief statements or passages. For some questions, more than one of the choices could conceivably answer the question. However, you are to choose the best answer; that is, the response that most accurately and completely answers the question. You should not make assumptions that are by common sense standards implausible, superfluous, or incompatible with the passage. Because of winter storm damage, the cost of a pound of apples at the local supermarket has increased 40 percent while the cost of a pound of oranges has increased 20 percent. Therefore, apples are now more expensive than oranges.

The argument’s reasoning is questionable because the argument fails to rule out the possibility that

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 60 By concluding that apples are more expensive than oranges because the cost of apples went up a greater percentage, we implicitly assume that oranges were not much more expensive initially. For example, if apples were initially $1 per pound and increased 40% to $1.40 per pound while oranges were originally $2 per pound and increased 20% to $2.40 per pound, apples would not be more expensive. The answer is (C). As for (A), whatever increase in prices occurred before the storm has no effect on the results after the storm. With (B), if apples were previously more expensive and increased in price a greater percentage than oranges, they would be even more expensive. Finally, choices (D) and (E) have no impact on the current prices of apples and oranges.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 61

The questions below are based on the reasoning contained in brief statements or passages. For some questions, more than one of the choices could conceivably answer the question. However, you are to choose the best answer; that is, the response that most accurately and completely answers the question. You should not make assumptions that are by common sense standards implausible, superfluous, or incompatible with the passage. Government take-over of foreign private industry in developing countries is generally regarded as an example by which the profits and benefits of a foreign enterprise can be redirected to improve the lot of native populations. The government’s takeover of a large foreign mining operation in a fledgling African country a few years ago is a poor example of this principle, however. The government ousted the corporation in name, but the management team and workforce, most of whom were foreign, remained to operate the facility and were given a large pay increase. Profits from the operation were thus severely reduced. As a result, native projects did not receive large profits from the operation, nor were natives hired to replace foreign workers.

Which one of the following describes the type of argument used in the passage?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 61 (A) is not the correct answer. The example does not support the general principle that government takeover of foreign business benefits native populations. (B) is not correct, because the author presents only one example of the principle, not two divergent examples. (C) is the correct selection. The author challenges the general principle by identifying a situation in which the native population did not benefit by the government’ s takeover of a foreign business. (D) is not correct. The author didn’t completely disprove the argument; he only provided one example that didn’t follow the general principle. (E) is not correct. In the passage, the author points out why this principle is not borne out by every situation, but he does not argue that all general principles have flaws.

Rampur is 100 km from Sitapur. At 3 p.m. Bharat Express leaves Rampur for Sitapur and travels at a constant speed of 30 kmph. One hour later, Laxman Mail leaves Sitapur for Rampur and covers the 1st 10km in 10 minutes and then travels at a constant speed of 40 kmph. Each train makes one stop only at a station 10 km from its starting point and remains there for 15 mins. How far is Bharat express from Sitapur when they meet?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 73 Bharat Express covers 10km in 20 minutes.

So it travels 10 km from 3PM to 3:20 PM, waits till 3:35 and then resumes its journey.

In the remaining 25 minutes till 4PM, it covers 30 x (25/60) = 12.5 kms.

So at 4PM, Bharat express is 22.5 Km from Rampur.

Laxman mail covers 10Km in 10 minutes, and then waits for 15 minutes. So at 4:25PM, it is 10 km from Sitapur.

At 4:25PM, Bharat express would be at 22.5 + 30 x (25/60) = 35km from Rampur.

Distance between trains at 4:25PM = 100 - (35 + 10) = 55 Kms

Relative Speed = 30 + 40 = 70 kmph Time to meet after 4:25PM = 55 km/70 kmph = 11/14 hours.

Bharat express will be : 35 + (11x30/14)km from Rampur ~= 58.57 km from rampur.

Bharat express from Sitapur = 100 - 58.57 = 41.43 kms

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 83

In a pizza stall, Ajay and Mohan, being the lucky customers, were given the option of drawing tickets from a pot containing x number of tickets for the knife-throwing show and y number of tickets for the talking-doll show. Both Ajay and Mohan being excited about the knife-throwing show, start drawing tickets from the pot until they get one for the show, replacing any drawn ticket for the talking-doll show back in the pot. Ajay draws the ticket first, followed by Mohan.Given this, mark all the correct options.

(1) If the probability of Ajay first getting a ticket for the knife-throwing show is four times that for Mohan, the ratio between x and y is 3 : 1

(2) If the probability of Ajay first getting a ticket for the knife-throwing show is five times that for Mohan, the ratio between y and x is 1 : 4

(3) If the probability of Ajay first getting a ticket for the knife-throwing show is two times that for Mohan, the ratio between x and y is 1 : 1

(4) If the probability of Mohan first getting a ticket for the knife-throwing show is six times that for Ajay, the ratio between x and y is 5 : 1

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 83 P(A) = Probability that Ajay gets a knife throwing ticket = Ajay gets in 1st draw + Ajay and Mohan don't get in 1st and 2nd draw x Ajay gets in 3rd draw + ...

Ajay getting in 1st draw = x/(x+y)

Ajay and Mohan not getting in 1st 2 draws = [y/(x+y)]2 so P(A) = x/(x+y) + [y/(x+y)]2 * [x/(x+y)] + [y/(x+y)]4 * [x/(x+y)] + ..

= (x/(x+y)) / (1-[y/(x+y)]2) = (x+y)/(x+2y)

Following similar approach for Mohan,

P(M) = (y/(x+y)) * (x/(x+y)) + [y/(x+y)]3 * [x/(x+y)] + [y/(x+y)]5 * [x/(x+y)] + ..

= y/(x+2y)

P(A)/P(M) = (x+y)/y

(a) P(A) = 4P(M) or (x+y)/y = 4 - this gives us x:y = 3:1 . So (a) is correct.

(b) P(A) = 5P(M) or (x+y)/y = 5 - this gives us x:y = 4:1, or y:x = 1:4 . So (b) is correct.

(c) P(A) = 4P(M) or (x+y)/y = 4 - this gives us x:y = 3:1 . So (c) is correct.

(d) P(M) is always less than P(A) from the equation. So. (d) is incorrect.

In the metro railway system, every station sells tickets for every other station. Some new stations were added for which 46 sets of additional tickets were required. How many stations were there originally and how many new stations were added?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 92 let original stations be O, new be N.

Total tickets when O stations were present = O(O-1) Total tickets when O+N stations were present = (O+N)(O+N-1)

Difference = (O+N)(O+N-1) - O(O-1)

From the options, taking option 3, O = 11, N = 2, we have 13x12 - 11x10 = 46.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 93

A student was asked to find the sum of all the prime numbers between 10 and 40. He found the sum as 180. Which of the following statements is true?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 93 Sum of all Prime Numbers between 10 and 40 = 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 = 180.

Now, the student could easily have used 14 + 16 instead of 13 + 17, or 10 + 14 + 16 + 20 instead of 11 + 13 + 17 + 19. So we can determine which statements are true.

I. ab = cxy

II. xy = zab

III. ab = xyz

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 94 I. Let a = 2m, b = 2n, c = 2o. ab/c will then be 2(mn/o) which will be an even number. Since xy is odd, (I) is false.

II. (xy/z) will be odd since the odd number /odd number is always odd. ab is even. So (II) is also false.

III. (ab) = even number, xyz will be an odd number. So III is also false

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 95

If 12 divides ab313ab, where a,b are digits, the smallest value of a+b is:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 95 12 = 4 x 3

Sum of digits should be divisible by 3

2(a+b) + 7 = 3k

2(a+b) + 1 = 3(k-2)

So a+b has to be 1/4/7/10 etc.

Last 2 digits have to be divisible by 4. ab is divisible by 4.

Take a+b = 1. We have 10 (since a can be 0 as it is the leading digit)

Since 10 is not divisible by 4, 1 can be the required value.

Consider a+b = 4. We can have ab = 40, which is divisible by 4.

Number = 4031340.

Least value of a + b = 4

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 96

Each of the questions below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II and III given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question: P, Q and R start a business then what is the difference of profit earned by Q to R at the end of 12 months?

I. Q starts the business with an initial capital of ₹15000 and P and R joins at the end of 4 month such that P increases his capital by 20% at the end of 4 months and initial capital of R is 25% more than P.

II. P withdraws 20% of his initial capital at the end of eight month and R increases his capital by 20% at the end of four month and claims a profit of ₹197200.

III. R joins the business with P and P increases his capital share by 20% at the end of 4 month and R reduces his capital by 20% at the end of 4 month and P claims a total profit of ₹63800. Total investment of P, Q and R taken together is ₹393600.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 96 From I and III

Capital investment of Q = (15000 x 12) = ₹180000

Let initial capital of P be (Y x 4) + (Y x 120/100 x 4) = 8.8Y

Let initial investment of R = (Y x 125/100) = 1.25Y

Total investment of R = (4 x 1.25Y) + (4 x Y) = 9Y

Total investment of P, Q and R = (180000 + 8.8Y + 9Y) = 393600

17.8Y = 213600

Y = 12000

Thus, total investment of P = (8.8 x 12000) = 105600

Total investment of R = (9 x 12000) = 108000

Ratio of investment of P, Q, R = 44:75:45

Let total profit be K

Then,

K x 44/164 = 63800

K = (63800 x 164/44) = 237800

Required difference of profit = 237800 x 30/164 = ₹43500

Hence, statements I and III together are sufficient.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 97

Each of the questions below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II and III given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question: What should be the selling price of a camera for a seller so as to obtain a profit of 12%?

I. Seller marked the camera 60% above the cost price and after allowing two successive discounts of 10% and 15% claims a profit of ₹5376.

II. Seller sold the camera at a profit of 20%. If he had sold it for ₹1440 more he would have got a profit of 28%.

III. Seller sold the camera to Raja at a profit of 10% and Raja marked the camera 45% above the cost price and after allowing a discount of 20% sold it to Raj at ₹22968.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 97 From I

Let the cost price of the camera be ₹100

Marked price = ₹160

Equivalent discount = 10 + 15 - (10 x 15)/100 = 23.5%

Selling price = 160 x (100 - 23.5)/100 = 122.4

Profit = (122.4 - 100) = ₹22.4

For profit of ₹22.4 cost price is ₹100

Then, for a profit of ₹5376, cost price = (5376 x 100)/22.4 = ₹24000

Required selling price = (24000 x 112/100) = ₹26880

Hence, statement I alone is sufficient.

From II: Let the cost price of camera be ₹Y

Then,

Selling price for 20% profit = 1.2Y

Selling price for 28% profit = 1.28Y

Difference of selling price = ₹1440

1.28Y - 1.2Y = 1440

Y = ₹18000

Thus, required selling price = (18000 x 112/100) = ₹20160

Hence, statement II alone is sufficient.

From III: Let the cost price of the seller be ₹Y

Selling price of Seller is the same as the cost price for Raja.

Thus, Y x 110/100 x 145/100 x 80/100 = ₹22968

Y = (22968 x 100/110 x 100/145 x 100/80) = ₹18000

Thus, required selling price = (18000 x 112/100) = ₹20160

Hence, statement III alone is sufficient.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 98

Rahim covers 1/3rd of his total journey by Bus, 1/6th of his total journey by Car and rest of the journey by Train. If the speeds of the Train, Car and Bus are 60 km/hr, 80 km/hr and 50 km/hr respectively then what was the average speed of Rahim during the entire journey?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 98 Let the total distance be 6d km.

Hence the distance covered by bus = 2d km

Since speed of the bus = 50 km/hr

Hence time taken by bus, T1 = 2d/50 = d/25 hours

Similarly time taken by car, T2 = d/80 hours

Similarly time taken by train, T3 = 3d/60 = d/20 hours

Average speed = Total distance/Total time 6dd/25 + d/80 + d/20 = 58.5 km/hr

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 99

Two identical trains A and B running in opposite directions at same speed take 2 minutes to cross each other completely. The number of bogies of A are increased from 12 to 16. How much more time would they now require to cross each other?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 99 Total distance covered initially = 24 bogies in 120 seconds.

Each bogie = 120/24 = 5s

4 new bogies would result in an additional 4x5 = 20s

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 100

In the given figure, PD = PC (∆PDC is isosceles) and ABCD is a square. It is also given that the area of the ∆PDC is twice the area of the square ABCD. Find the ratio of the area of the ∆PDC outside the square ABCD to the area of the square ABCD outside the ∆PDC.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 100 Let the side of the square ABCD = CD =2a.

If PM is the altitude, PM would also be the Perpendicular bisector of side CD, since PDC is an isosceles Ale =>CM=MD=a.

The area of the square ABCD = CD2 = (2a)2 =4a2.

The area of PCD = 2(4a2) = 8a2

= 1/2 * CD * PM = 1/2* 2a * PM

⇒ PM=8a=PN+NM.

Here, NM=AD=2a

∴ PN=6a.

From the given figure, it can be observed that les PCM and PYN are similar

( ∵ Angle MPC = Angle NPY,

Angle CMP = Angle YNP = 90“

Angle PCM = Angle PYN)

⇒ PM/PN = CM/YN = a/YN = 8a/6a = 4/3

⇒ YN = 3 a/4 => XY = 2 * (3a/4) = 3a/2

The area of APXY (= Area of APDC outside square ABCD)

= 1/2 * XY * PN = 1/2 * 3a/2 * 6a = 9/2 a2.

The area of Quadrilateral DXYC = Area of PCD - Area of PXY

=8a2 - 9/2 a2 = 7/2 a2

The area of square ABCD outside APCD = Area of square ABCD -Area of Quadrilateral DXYC = 4a2 - 7/2 a2 = 1/2 a2

∴ Ratio of area of square ABCD outside APCD to Area of APDC outside square ABCD = (1/2 a2)/(9/2 a2)=1/9.

Hence, the correct answer is option 1.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 101

A contractor takes up an assignment that 20 men can complete in 10 days. The same assignment could be finished by 15 women in 20 days. The contractor decides to employ 10 men and 10 women for the project. Given this, mark all the correct options. (All wage rates are per day)

(1) If the wage rate for men and women are Rs. 50 and Rs. 45 respectively, the total wage bill for the project will be Rs. 11,400.

(2) If the wage rate for men and women are Rs. 45 and Rs. 40 respectively, the total wage bill for the project will be Rs. 10,200.

(3) If the wage rate for men and women are equal at Rs. 40, the total wage bill for the project will be Rs. 9,100.

(4) If the contractor decides to employ 20 men and 30 women for the project and the wage rate for men and women are Rs. 40 and Rs. 35 respectively, the total wage bill for the project will be Rs. 9,250.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 101 20M x 10 Days = 15W x 20 Days 2M = 3W.

So, if 10M, 10W work together, its equal to 5x3 = 15 + 10 = 25W working together.

Time to finish the job = 15x20/25 = 12 days.

(a) Wage will be 12 x (10x50 + 10x45) = 12x950 = 11400. So (a) is correct.

(b) Wage = 12 x (10x45 + 10x40) = 10200. So (b) is correct.

(c) Wage = 12 x 20 x 40 = 9600. So (c) is incorrect. (d) 20M + 30W = 60W working together.

Time to complete = 15x20/60 = 5 days.

So wage = 5 (20x40 + 30x35) = 9250. So (d) is correct.

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 102

Sarah cannot completely remember her four digit ATM pin number. She does remember the first two digits, and she knows that each of the last two digits is greater than 5. The ATM will allow her three tries before it blocks further access. If she randomly guesses the last two digits, what is the probability that she will get access to her account?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 102 Randomly guessing either of the last two digits does not affect the choice of the other, which means that these events are independent and we are dealing with consecutive probabilities. Since each of the last two digits is greater than 5, Sarah has four digits to choose from: 6, 7, 8, 9. Her chance of guessing correctly on the first choice is 1/4, and on the second choice also 1/4. Her chance of guessing correctly on both choices is (1/4) x (1/4) = 1/16

Since she gets three tries, the total probability is (1 -(15/16)3) = 721/4096

If the point of impact is 1 mile closer to the current position of ship X than to the current position of ship Y, how many miles away from the point of impact is ship Y at this time?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 105

Let d be the distance ship Y is from the point of collision. Then the distance ship X is from the point of collision is d- 1. The following diagram depicts the situation:

Applying the Pythagorean Theorem to the diagram yields

d2 +(d-1)2=52

d2+d2-2d +1=25

2d2 -2d-24=0

d2-d- 12=0

(d — 4)(d + 3) = 0

d = 4 or d = -3

Since d denotes distance, we reject d = -3. Hence, d = 4 and the answer is (D).

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 106

A circle is depicted in the rectangular coordinate system as shown. The value of x is

Detailed Solution for Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 106 The figure shows that the circle is located between the lines y = 4 and y = 4 and that the circle is symmetric to the x-axis. From this, we make two observations: 1) The center of the circle is on the x-axis. 2) The diameter of the circle is 8. Since the center of the circle is on the xaxis, the points (2, 0) and (x, 0) must be diametrically opposite points of the circle. That is, they are endpoints of a diameter of the circle. Hence, the distance between the two points, x 2, must equal the length of the diameter. Hence, x 2 = 8. Adding 2 to both sides of this equation, we get x = 10. The answer is (D).

Practice Test for NMAT - 4 - Question 107

In these questions, a question is given followed by information in three statements. You have to consider the information in all the three statements and decide the information in which of the statement (s) is not necessarily required to answer the question and therefore can be dispensed with. Indicate your answer accordingly What is the labelled price of an article?

I. The cost price of the article is Rs 500.

II. The selling price after offering 5% discount on the labelled price is Rs 608.
