Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
A contractor undertakes a project to build a road. It is also known that: 
The length of the road to be built is 15 km. 
Total time allotted for the completion of work is 100 days. 
The contractor employs 50 men for this purpose. 
After 50 days he finds that only 6 km of the road is ready.

How many days behind schedule will the project be if the work continues at the same rate?

Solution:

Let Hitesh's initial speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 6x, 2x and x respectively.
Also after changing his strategy let Hitesh's speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 8y, 3y and y respectively.   Solving the equations we get, x = 9, y = 6 and t = 100 Replacing the value of y in (ii) from (iii) we get,18 _ ^60°

Required time QUESTION: 7

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
A contractor undertakes a project to build a road. It is also known that: 
The length of the road to be built is 15 km. 
Total time allotted for the completion of work is 100 days. 
The contractor employs 50 men for this purpose. 
After 50 days he finds that only 6 km of the road is ready.

What should be the percentage increase in efficiency of the men for the remaining period so that the work is completed as per schedule?

Solution:

Let Hitesh's initial speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 6x, 2x and x respectively.
Also after changing his strategy let Hitesh's speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 8y, 3y and y respectively.   Solving the equations we get, x = 9, y = 6 and t = 100 Replacing the value of y in (ii) from (iii) we get,18 _ ^60°

Required time = 184 x 60 = 13 minutes.

QUESTION: 8

Directions: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.
A contractor undertakes a project to build a road. It is also known that: 
The length of the road to be built is 15 km. 
Total time allotted for the completion of work is 100 days. 
The contractor employs 50 men for this purpose. 
After 50 days he finds that only 6 km of the road is ready.

How many more men should he employ to complete the work as per schedule?

Solution:

Let Hitesh's initial speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 6x, 2x and x respectively.
Also after changing his strategy let Hitesh's speeds in cycling, running and swimming be 8y, 3y and y respectively.   Solving the equations we get, x = 9, y = 6 and t = 100 Replacing the value of y in (ii) from (iii) we get,18 _ ^60°

Given that Rakesh's speeds during the three phases are in the ratio 4 : 3 : 2 with his running time being same as Hitesh's.
Hence, his speeds in cycling, running and swimming are 24 km/hr, 18 km/hr and 12 km/hr respectively.

QUESTION: 10

Study the following information and answer the related questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, A, B, C, D and E are employees of a company. A table shows the average age of any two employees of the company. The average age of A and B is 27.5. i.e. average age of A & P is given as (A+P)/2=39.5

What is the age of T?

Solution:

A + B = 2 X 27.5 = 55

A + P = 2 X 39.5 = 79

B + P = 2 X 42 = 84

A + B + 2P = 79 + 84

2P = 163 – 55

P = 54

Now, A = 79 – 54 = 25

A + T = 2 X 27 = 54

So, T = 54 – 25 = 29

QUESTION: 11

Study the following information and answer the related questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, A, B, C, D and E are employees of a company. A table shows the average age of any two employees of the company. The average age of A and B is 27.5. i.e. average age of A & P is given as (A+P)/2=39.5

What is the average age of D, R and S?

Solution:

B = 55 – 25 = 30

B + R = 2 X 25.5 = 51

So, R = 51 – 30 = 21

D + R = 2 X 36.5 = 73

D = 73 – 21 = 52

And, S + D = 2  X 42.5 = 85

S = 85 – 52 = 33

Therefore, average of D, R and S = 52+21+33 / 3 = 35.33

QUESTION: 12

Study the following information and answer the related questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, A, B, C, D and E are employees of a company. A table shows the average age of any two employees of the company. The average age of A and B is 27.5. i.e. average age of A & P is given as (A+P)/2=39.5

What is the ratio of ages of Q and E?

Solution:

T + E = 2 X 36 = 72

E = 72 – 29 = 43

Q + E = 2 × 44.5 = 89

Q = 89 – 43 = 46

Ratio = 46: 43

QUESTION: 13

Study the following information and answer the related questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, A, B, C, D and E are employees of a company. A table shows the average age of any two employees of the company. The average age of A and B is 27.5. i.e. average age of A & P is given as (A+P)/2=39.5

What will be the average of sum of ages of A, B, C, D and E together after five years?

Solution:

C + Q = 2 × 42 = 84

C = 84 – 46 = 38

Sum of ages of A, B, C, D and E together after five years = (25 + 30 + 38 + 52 + 43) + 25 = 213

Average = 213/5 = 42.6

QUESTION: 14

Study the following information and answer the related questions.

P, Q, R, S, T, A, B, C, D and E are employees of a company. A table shows the average age of any two employees of the company. The average age of A and B is 27.5. i.e. average age of A & P is given as (A+P)/2=39.5

If age of P and Q is decreased by 50% and age of A and B is increased by 20%, what will be the ratio of ages of P, Q, R, S and T together to the ages of A, B, C, D and E together?

Solution:

Age of P and Q is decreased by 50%. So,

New age of P = 50/100 X  54 = 27

New age of Q = 50/100 X 46 = 23

And, age of A and B is increased by 20%. So,

New age of A = 120/100 X 25 = 30

New age of B = 120/100 X 30 = 36

Ratio = 27+ 23+ 21+ 33+ 29 / 30 + 36 + 38 + 52+43   = 133/ 199
