SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 52

In the figure given above, C and D are points on the semi-circle described on AB as diameter. ∠ABD = 75º and ∠DAC = 35º. What is the ∠BDC ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 52

In  ΔABD

∠ABD + ∠ADB + ∠BAD = 180º
⇒ 75º + 90º + BAD = 180º 
⇒ 165º + BAD = 180º
∠BAD = 180º – 165º = 15º
∠BAC = 35º + 15º = 50º
 Since, A, B, D and C from a cyclic quadrilateral
∠BAC + ∠BDC=180º
⇒ 50º + BDC = 180º
 ⇒ ∠BDC = 180º – 50º = 130º

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 53

What is value of x in the figure given above ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 53

In ΔBCD
⇒ b + ∠CDB + ∠CBD = 180º 
∠CDB + ∠CBD = 180º – b
Again in ABD,
∠A + ∠ADB + ∠ABD = 180º  
⇒a+∠ADC+∠CDB+∠ABC+∠CBD=180º
⇒ a + x + ∠CDB + c + ∠CBD = 180º
⇒ a + x + c+(∠CDB + ∠CBD) = 180º
⇒ a + x + c +180º–b= 180º [from (i)]
⇒ x  = b – a – c

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 58

A can do a work in 5 days, B in 10 days and C in 15 days. They started the work and after 3 days A left the work and B left it before 3 days of the complition of the work. Find the total no of days taken by them.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 58

Let's break down the problem and find the solution step by step.

**Step 1: Determine each person's work rate**
A can complete the work in 5 days, so their work rate is 1/5 of the work per day.
B can complete the work in 10 days, so their work rate is 1/10 of the work per day.
C can complete the work in 15 days, so their work rate is 1/15 of the work per day.

**Step 2: Determine the work completed by each person**
A worked for 3 days, so they completed 3 * (1/5) = 3/5 of the work.
B left 3 days before the completion of the work, so we don't know the exact amount of work completed by them yet.
C worked until the completion of the work, so we don't know the exact amount of work completed by them yet.

**Step 3: Determine the remaining work after A left**
After A left, there was (1 - 3/5) = 2/5 of the work remaining.

**Step 4: Determine the work completed by B and C together**
Since B left 3 days before the completion of the work, and C worked until the completion of the work, we can say that B and C together completed the remaining 2/5 of the work.

Their combined work rate is (1/10 + 1/15) = (3/30) = 1/10 of the work per day.

**Step 5: Determine the number of days B and C worked together**
Let x be the number of days B and C worked together. Then, their combined work is (1/10) * x, and it equals the remaining 2/5 of the work.

So, (1/10) * x = 2/5
=> x = (2/5) * 10
=> x = 4 days

**Step 6: Determine the total number of days taken by all three**
Since A worked for 3 days, and B and C worked together for 4 days, the total number of days taken by all three is 3 + 4 = 7 days. However, we know that B left 3 days before the completion of the work, so the actual completion of the work took 7 + 3 = 10 days.

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 62

Three years ago, the average age of the family of 5 members was 17 years. Inspite of the birth of a child in the family, the present average age of the family remains the same. The present age of the child is

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 62

Given:

3 years ago average age of 5 members is 17 years.

Formula used:

Average = Sum of values/number of values

Calculation:

3 years ago average age of 5 members is 17 years

Sum of ages of 5 members, 3 years ago

⇒ 17 × 5 = 85

Average of Present age of 5 members = 20 years

Sum of present ages of 5 members = 20 × 5 = 100

But a baby born and average remains same i.e 17 years

Sum of present ages of 6 members = 17 × 6 = 102

Age of baby = 102 - 100 = 2 years

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 63

Men, women and children are employed to do a work in the proportion of 3 : 2 : 1 and their wages as 5 : 3 : 2. When 90 men are employed, total daily wages of all amounts to ₹ 10350. Find the daily wages of a man.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 2 - Question 63

Let the numbers of men, women and 
children are 3k, 2k and k, respectively.
Given, 3k = 90 
⇒ k = 30
Number of women = 60
and number of children = 30
Let the men's, women's and children's
wages be ₹ 5p, ₹ 3p and ₹ 2p, respectively.
According to the question,
Total daily wages = ₹ 10350
⇒ 90 x 5p + 60 x 3p + 30 x 2p = 10350
⇒ p x (450 + 180 + 60) = 10350
∴ p = 10350/690 = 15
∴ Daily wages of a man = 15 x 5 = ₹ 75
