### On Sunday, six trains (i.e. train 1, train 2 and so on) are standing on six different platforms respectively from left to right facing North. Next day, all the trains are there on the same six platforms in such a way that no train is on the same platform as on the Sunday. On Monday, following observation are made: (i) Train 2 was immediately to the left of Train 5. (ii) Train 4 has Train 6 to its immediate left and neither of them were at Train 3’s original place. (iii) Train 1 has Train 3 on its immediate right and Train 5 on its immediate left. If an even numbered train is at the East end on Monday, which train is fourth from the right end.

Solution:

From the given information at (i), (ii) and (iii), there are two possibilities :

Possibility I :   6 4 2 5 1 3

Possibility 2 : 2 5 1 3 6 4

But since, in the question, it is said that an even numbered train is at the East end, possibility II is the correct arrangement.

.If a = and b = , what is the value of a³ + b³?

Solution:

Given a Similarly b = ∴ a + b = (3 + √2) + (3 - √2) = 6 a * b = (3 + √2) * (3 - √2) = 9 - 2 = 7 a³ + b³ = (a + b)³ - 3ab(a + b) ⇒ a³ + b³ = 6³ - 3 * 7 * 6 = 216 - 126 ⇒ a³ + b³ = 90

QUESTION: 58

What are the values of k, if the roots of the equation x² + 2(k - 4)x + 2k = 0 are equal?

Solution:

Given, the roots of the equation x² + 2(k - 4)x + 2k = 0 are equal. When roots are equal then b² = 4ac
⇒ [2(k - 4)]² = 4 * 1 * 2k
⇒ 4(k - 4)² = 8k ⇒ k² - 8k + 16 = 2k
⇒ k² - 10k + 16 = 0
⇒ (k - 2) (k - 8) = 0 ⇒ k = 2, 8

While going to a destination after travelling 75km, the driver noticed some problem in the clutch of the bus due to which he had to proceed at 2/5 of its former rate and reached the destination 5 hours late. Had the problem in the clutch happened 15 km further on, it would have arrived 30 minutes sooner. Find the speed of the bus and total distance covered by the bus?

Solution: Let A is the starting point and B is actual point where bus met with an accident C is the assumed point bus met with an accident Given BC = 15km and Difference of is 30 minutes basically due to the speed covering this 15km. Let original speed = x km/hr Speed after clutch problem =  2x/5 km/hr x = 45 km/hr Let the distance be ‘D’ km Time taken at original speed = D/45 hr……….(i) Time taken after clutch problem took place at 75 km distance =  As per the question, (ii) – (i) = 5 hours 3D – 225 = 450 3D = 675 D = 225 km

Solution: Area of square1 = (16)2 = 256 Area of square2 = (8 √2)2 = 128 Area of square3 = 64 Area of square4 = 32 Series = 256, 128, 64, 32……………………… QUESTION: 67

The quadrilateral, whose vertices are A (–1, 1), B (0, –3), C (5, 2) and D (4, 6) is a:

Solution:

AB = √ (-1 - 0)2 + (1+3)2 = √ 17 BC= √ (0-5)2 + (-3 -2)2= √ 50 CD = √ (5-4)2 + (2-6)2 = √ 17 DA = √ (4+1)2 + ( 6 - 1)2 = √ 50 Then AB = CD , and BC = DA Slope m 1 = AC = (y2 – y1)/(x2 – x1) = ( 2 - 1)/(5 + 1) = 1/6 And slope m 2 = BD = (y4 - y3)/(x4 - x3) = (6 + 3)/(4 – 0) = 9/4 Since m1 * m2 ≠ 1 then it is a parallelogram.

ABCD is a rectangle of dimensions 4 units and 3 units. AEFC is a rectangle drawn in such a way that diagonal AC of the first rectangle is one side and the side opposite to it is touching the first rectangle at D. What is the ratio of the area of rectangle ABCD to that of AEFC?

Solution: According to the figure above, AE² = CF² ⇒ AD² - DE² = CD² - DF² ⇒ 3² - x² = 4² - (5 - x)² ⇒ 9 - x² = 16 - (25 + x² - 10x) ⇒ 10x = 18 ⇒ x = 1.8 AE² = AD² - DE² ⇒ AE² = 3² - 1.8² = 9 - 3.24 = 5.76 ⇒ AE = 2.4
Ratio of area of rectangle ABCD to AEFC = (4 * 3):(5 * 2.4) = 1:1

QUESTION: 70

If (x + 1/x) = 5, then value of x + 1/x is:

Solution:

(x + 1/x) = 5

QUESTION: 71

If sec A + tan A = 3 then the value of cot A is:

Solution:

sec A + tan A = 3 ... (1) (sec A + tan A)*(sec A - tan A)/(sec A - tan A) = 11/2 ⇒ (sec A - tan A) /(sec A - tan A ) = 11/2 ⇒ 1/(sec A – tan A) = 3 (Since sec A - tan A = 1) ⇒ sec A - tan A = 1/3 ... (2) From (1) - (2), we get, 2 tan A = 3 -1/3 = 8/3 ⇒ tan A = 4/3 Therefore, cot A = 1/tan A = 3/4

QUESTION: 72

A sniper on the parapet of a 50 feet high building was aiming at a target. The angle of depression that his rifle made was 45 °. How far away from the building was his target?
