QUESTION: 51

A, B and C starts a business with investing the capital of Rs 1,500, 1,200 and 1,800 respectively. After 5 months, A invests additional amount of Rs. 1000 and B and C after 4 and 6 months respectively invest the additional Amount in the ratio of 2:3. If the share of A from the total profit of Rs. 3,730 at the end of the year is Rs. 1,250. Then find out the additional amount invested by C?

Solution:

Ratio of capital invested by B and C = 2:3
Let the capital invested by B and C be 2x  and 3x respectively.
A , B and C’s share in the profit = capital invested by them x time
A’s share = Rs. 1,250
∴  B and C’s share = 3,730   - 1,250 = Rs. 2,480
A’s profit = 1,500 × 5 + 2,500 × 7 = Rs. 25,000

QUESTION: 52

Solution:

Join EC,
From the diagram,
AE = 10 + 6 = 16 cm
∠ABC = ∠ CEA (Similar Chord Theorem,
(AB )/(AE )=(AD )/(AC )                  (Similar triangle)
(AB )/(16  )=(10  )/(8  )
AB = 20 cm

QUESTION: 54

The ratio of the outer and the inner perimeter of a circular path is 45:44, if the path is 15m wide then the diameter of the inner circle is:

Solution:

Let R be the radius of the Outer circle and r be the radius of the Inner circle
According to the Question
2πR/2πr = 45/44
R/r = 45/44
Let R =
45x and r = 44x 45x - 44x = 15
x = 15
r = 44 × 15 = 660m
Diameter of the inner circle = 2 × r = 2 × 660 =  1320 m

QUESTION: 56

A cylindrical tank of 28 cm base radius is partly filled with water. How many bullets of 1cm radius of iron is added in it in order to increase the water level by 5cm?

Solution:

Base radius of a cylindrical tank = 28 cm
Change in the rise of water in a cylindrical tank = Volume of a bullet
Radius of a iron = 1 cm
No. of bullets = (Change in the rise of water in a cylindrical tank  )/(Volume of a bullet )
= (π r^2  h)/((4 )/(3 ) π r^3 ) = (π ×  28  × 28  × 5   )/(π (4 )/(3 )  × 1^3 )
= (28  ×  28  × 5 × 3 )/(4 )   = 2,940
To increase the water level by 5cm we need 2,940 bullets.

QUESTION: 57

Krishna can do a piece of work in 25 days. He alone worked at it for 10 days and then Balram completed alone the rest work in 20 days. In how many days, they will complete the whole work, working together?

Solution:

Efficiency of Krishna = 100/25 = 4%
Work done by Krishna in 10 days = 10/25 × 100 = 40%
Remaining work = 60%
Efficiency of Balram = 60/20 = 3%
Therefore, required number of days = 100/((4+3)) = 100/7 = 14*2/7 days

QUESTION: 58

If the ratio of the ages of Karan and Saroj is 5 : 7. 8 years ago, the ratio of their ages was 2 : 3. Find the present age of Saroj?

Solution:

Let the present age of Karan be 5x and that of Saroj be 7x.
As per the question,
(5x+8)/(7x+8) = 2/3 ⇒  3(5x+8) = 2 (7x+8)
⇒ 15 x + 24 = 14x + 16
⇒ 15x - 14x = 24 - 16
Solving for x, we get x = 8.
∴ Present age of Saroj is 8 × 7 = 56 years.

QUESTION: 59

There is a fire in the building. A man on the top of the building sees a Fire Brigade van coming towards it. If it takes 8 minutes for the angle of depression to change from 30⁰ to 60⁰, how soon will the van reach the building?

Solution:

Let the height of the building be h
D the man standing on the top of the building
Now, from figure, AB = x and BC = y

Since, Time taken to cover a distance from A to B = 8 minutes
∴ Time taken to cover a unit distance = 8/x minutes
For distance ‘y’ time taken = 8/x  ×y = 8/x  ×  x/2 = 4 minutes.

QUESTION: 60

A salesman is allowed 24% commission on the total sales by him and a bonus of 1% on the sales over Rs. 25000. If the total earnings of a salesman is Rs. 11475. Find the total sales.

Solution:

Let the total sales be x
According to the question
x × 24/100 + (x - 25000) × 1/100 = 11,475
24x/100 + (x-25000)/100 = 11475
24x + x – 25000 = 11,47,500
25x = 11,72,500
x = 46,900

QUESTION: 61

A Boat goes upstream in 4 hours and 50 km in 2 hours, then the speed of the boat in still water is

Solution:

Let the speed of boat = x
and the speed of the stream = y
60/(x-y) = 4 ⇒ x-y = 15
50/(x+y) = 2 ⇒ x+y = 25
From above
x = 20 km/hr

QUESTION: 62

A car has to cover a distance of 240 km in 30 hours. If it covers half of the journey in 3/5 th of the time, the speed to cover the remaining distance in the time left has to be:

Solution:

Total Distance = 240km
Total Time = 30 hours
He covers half of the Journey in 3/5th of the time = 30 ×  3/5 = 18 hours
Now remaining Distance = 240 – 120 = 120km
Remaining time = 12 hours
Average Speed to cover the distance of 120 km will be 120/12   = 10km/hr

QUESTION: 63

The government has begun field work to compile a new Periodic Labor Force Survey to track employment trends more swiftly, in order to generate quarterly reports on the urban labor market situation and annual dossiers on the overall employment scene. With well over 80% of the workforce employed informally (with no contractual rights), Statistics and Programme Implementation Minister’s assertion that the Survey will also attempt to capture such workers’ employment status is welcome. Prime Minister is now expected to meet officials, including Niti Aayog Vice-Chairperson, to discuss issues related to job creation and the recommendations of a task force set up to officially capture the employment status of India’s workforce more effectively. The task force had been constituted amid a growing sense of concern, even within industry, about the lack of adequate jobs created and fresh talk of ‘jobless growth’. The only official job data available, based on surveys conducted by the Labor Bureau since late 2008, have painted a gloomy picture on new jobs for the world’s youngest workforce in the first two years of the current government.

India’s employment data are far from robust and not timely enough to enable meaningful policy responses for emerging job market realities. Government officials too have questioned the reliability of the Labor Bureau exercise that covers only a few sectors in select States. One of the Niti Aayog members, for instance, has said that existing jobs data can be used to claim both ‘growth-less jobs’ and jobless growth, given India’s largely informal economy. The task force is considering the use of proxy measures such as car sales to incorporate informal employment generation into the official narrative. How the recommendations of the task force will be incorporated into the new labor force survey, for which work began in April, needs to be seen. While it is never too late to spruce up statistical systems, the timing of this exercise is odd. Chief Statisticians expect the results of the first Survey, awaiting approval for more than a year, to be released by December 2018. The most comprehensive existing employment survey conducted quinquennially by the National Sample Survey Office has not been done since 2011-12. The UPA government had commissioned an out-of-turn survey then as the 2009-10 survey presented an overtly gloomy job market in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. In contrast, the NDA government will go to the next Lok Sabha polls having released just one comprehensive labor force survey, close to the end of its term. Importantly, given the new coordinates, the Survey may not be strictly comparable with past data.

Q. What is the purpose of conducting Periodic Labor Force Survey?

Solution:

It is stated in the passage “to compile a new Periodic Labor Force Survey to track employment trends more swiftly, in order to generate quarterly reports on the urban labor market situation and annual dossiers on the overall employment scene.”
