The question below consists of a set of labelled sentences. Out of the four options given, select the most logical order of the sentences to form a coherent paragraph.

P: linguistic chauvinism, now
Q: the mass disappearance of languages and cultures, 
R: is a powerful force contributing to
S: an extinction event with fundamental and incalculable political ramifications
T: modernised and globalised, 

Solution:

The correct answer is option 1.

P would be the first part of the arrangement as it introduces the subject. 

T follows P end with 'now' which implies that there need to be more adjectives regarding 'linguistic chauvinism'.

R follows T as it defines 'linguistic chauvinism'.

Q follows sentence T as it fits grammatically after 'contributing to'. 

This leaves us with  S which becomes the final part.

Therefore, the most logical and coherent way to form a sentence from the given options is option 1, i.e., PTRQS. It would make a sentence like this:

Q follows  S as it fits grammatically after 'from' in  S. 

This leaves us with R which becomes the final part.

Therefore, the most logical and coherent way to form a sentence from the given options is option 2, i.e., PTSQR. The final sentence will be:

I was on a tech podcast discussing Google's decision to remove links to revenge porn from its search results when victims request it.

The sentence would be:
My very photogenic mother died in a freak accident when I was three.

QUESTION: 42

In the following question, by using which mathematical operators will the expression become correct?

17_121_11_1 = 6

Solution:

Given expression:17_121_11_1 = 6
Let’s check each option,

1) +, –, ÷
Equation will become 17 + 121 – 11 ÷ 1
Now, according to BODMAS rule, we have:
17 + 121 – 11 ÷ 1
= 17 + 121 – 11
= 138 – 11
= 127 ≠ 6

2) –, ÷, +
Equation will become 17 – 121 ÷ 11 + 1
Now, according to BODMAS rule, we have:
17 – 121 ÷ 11 + 1
= 17 – 11 + 1
= 18 – 11
= 7 ≠ 6

3) +, ×, –
Equation will become 17 + 121 × 11 – 1
Now, according to BODMAS rule, we have:
17 + 121 × 11 – 1
= 17 + 1331 – 1
= 1348 – 1
= 1347 ≠ 6

4) –, ÷, ×
The equation will become 17 – 121 ÷ 11 × 1
Now, according to BODMAS rule, we have:
17 – 121 ÷ 11 × 1
= 17 – 11 × 1
= 17 – 11
6
Hence, the correct set of symbols is ‘–, ÷, × ’.

22 × 2 + 4 – 11 = 44 + 4 – 11 = 48 – 11 = 37
Similarly,
21 × 2 + 6 – 7 = 42 + 6 – 7 = 48 – 7 = 41
Hence, 41 is the correct answer.

The numbers which are divisible by 8 will be automatically divisible by 2

The numbers divisible by 8 between 14 to 159 are 16,24, 32,40, 48, …., 152

The above series is an AP with first term = 16 and common difference = 8 and the last term = 152

In an AP, An = a + (n - 1)d

⇒ 144 = 8n
⇒ n = 144/8 = 18

QUESTION: 55

13 years ago, Ram was twice as old as Sunny. Three years from now Sunny’s age will be 3/5 of Ram’s age. What is Ram’s current age?

Solution:

13 years ago, Ram was twice as old as Sunny,
Let Ram be ‘R’ years old and Sunny be ‘S’ years old,
⇒ (R – 13) = 2(S – 13)
⇒ R – 13 = 2S – 26
⇒ 2S – R = 13
Three years from now, Sunny’s age will be 3/5 of Ram’s age,
⇒ (S + 3) = 3/5(R + 3)
⇒ 5S + 15 = 3R + 9
⇒ 3R – 5S = 6
Solving,
⇒ 3R – 5(13 + R) /2 = 6
⇒ 6R – 65 – 5R = 12
⇒ R = 77
∴ Ram present age is 77 years.

QUESTION: 56

A rectangular ground has 10 m wide path along its sides and the dimensions of the ground are 30 m × 20 m. What is the cost of lighting to the whole ground along with the path if the cost of lighting per m2 is Rs. 120?

Solution:


The length of the whole area = 20 + 20 = 40 m
The breadth of the whole area = 30 + 20 = 50 m
New area of the ground with the path = 40 × 50 = 2000 m2
Cost of lighting the whole ground along with the path = 2000 × 120 = 240000
∴ The cost of lighting the whole ground along with the path is Rs. 240000.

QUESTION: 57

On a certain item profit is 150%. If the cost price increases by 25%, what will be the new profit margin (in %)?

Solution:

Let initial CP be Rs. 100
Profit is 150% means
⇒ SP = 100 + (150/100) × (100) = 250
Now if CP increased by 25%
⇒ CP = 100 + (25/100) × 100 = 125
Profit can be given as
⇒ (250 – 125) × 100/125 = 100%
∴ Final profit percentage is 100%
