QUESTION: 1

### What will be the lateral surface area of frustum of a cone, if the area of base is 64 ∏ m ² and radius of upper one is 6m and slant height is 10m?

Solution:

Lateral surface area of frustum of a cone = ∏ (R + r) × slant height

Area of base = ∏ r² = 64∏ m²

Therefore, r = 8m

So, lateral surface area = ∏ (8 + 6) 10 = 140∏ m²

QUESTION: 2

### If M be the volume of cone and N be the curved surface area of a cone of dimensions p, q and r where p is the radius, q is the height and r is the slant height of a cone, then 1/M is equal to

Solution:

Since, M = 1/3 ∏ r² h = 1/3 ∏ p² q

and N = ∏rl = ∏pr

Now, N/M = ∏pr/ 1/3 ∏ p² q

Therefore, 1/M = 1/N [3r/p q]

QUESTION: 3

### A building alpha casts a shadow 75m at the same time when the building gamma casts a shadow 60m long on the field. If the height of the gamma building is 40m, what will be the height of the building alpha?

Solution:

Let the height of building alpha be x metre

Then, x : 75 = 40 : 60

x/75 = 40/60

Therefore, x = 50m

QUESTION: 4

Water coming out of pipe with a velocity of 10m/sec. How many minutes will it take in filling the gyser with water?

Solution:

Required time = H = ( 20² × 15 )/(0.20 × 0.20 × 60 × 10) = 250 minutes

QUESTION: 6

Which of the following is the highest? (You are not expected to calculate the exact value).

Solution: QUESTION: 7

30 boys can do a piece of work in ‘a’ days. 42 girls can do a piece of work in ‘a – 4’ days. 70 boys can do a piece of work in ‘b’ days and 126 girls can do a piece of work in ‘b – 4’ days. Find the value of ‘a’?

Solution:

30 boys can complete the work in ‘a’ days

1 boy can complete the work in ‘30a’ days … (i)

42 girls can complete the work in (a – 4) days 1 girl can complete the work in 42(a – 4) days …(ii) and

Also, 70 boys can complete the work in ‘b’ days 1 boy can complete the work in ’70 b’ days … (iii)

126 girls can complete the work in ‘(b – 4)’ days 1 girl can complete the work in 126 (b – 4) days …(iv)

Equate (i) & (iii) and (ii) & (iv)

30a = 70b ⇒ a/b = 7/3 ⇒ b = 3/7 a … ..(v)

42(a – 4) = 126 (b – 4) ⇒ a – 4 = 3b – 12 ⇒ 3b – a = 8 … (vi)

Using (v) and (vi)

3[(3/7) a] – a = 8 9a/7 – a = 8

⇒ a = 8 × 7/2 = 28 days

QUESTION: 8

Cost price of jeans is double than that of shirt and shopkeeper mark up both the article 25% higher than the cost price. If at the time of sale shopkeeper gave Rs. 15 discount and earn 20% profit on total. Find the cost price of jeans?

Solution:

Let the C.P of jeans = 2x

C.P of shirt = x

Total cost price = Rs 3x

Marked price = 3x × 125/100 = Rs 3.75x

According to question,

3.75x – 15 = 3x × 1.20 3.75x – 3.6x = 15 0.15x = 15

Therefore, x = 100

Cost price of Jeans = 2 × 100 = Rs 200

QUESTION: 9

Kamayani married 5 years back. Today her age is 4/3 times her age at the time of her marriage and her daughter is 1/4 of her age. Find the ratio of Kamayani age to her dauhgter’s age after 8 years?

Solution:

Let the present age of Kamayani = x years

According to questions,

x = 4/3 (x – 5)

3x = 4x – 20

Therefore, x = 20 years

Present age of Kamayani’s daughter = 20/4 = 5 years

Now, required ratio = (20 + 8):(5 + 8) = 28:13

QUESTION: 10

A bus crosses a pole in 15 sec. Another bus of same length crosses a bus station in 20 sec with a speed 25% more than the first bus. Find out the ratio of length of bus and length of bus station.

Solution:

Let length of bus and bus station be ‘a’ and ‘b’ respectively

1st bus cross the pole = 15 sec

2nd bus (25% faster than first bus) Cross the pole = 15 × 4/5 = 12 sec (same length)

Time taken to cross bus station = 20 sec

According to the question,

a + b/20 = a/12

12a + 12b = 20a

8a = 12b

a/b = 12/8

a : b = 3:2

QUESTION: 11

What will come in place of the question mark (?) in the following number series?

24       13          21.5          ?            202.625          916.8125

Solution:

24 × 0.5 + 1 = 13

13 × 1.5 + 2 = 21.5

21.5 × 2.5 + 3 = 56.75

56.75 × 3.5 + 4 = 202.625

202.625 × 4.5 + 5 = 916.8125

QUESTION: 12

Paras takes loan of Rs. 40,000 on the condition that he would pay it in the monthly instalment of Rs. 5,000. He has to pay interest @ 16% on the outstanding balances, then what is the average rate of interest received by the creditor per annum.

Solution:

Monthly instalment = Rs. 5000

Total loan = Rs. 40,000

Number of instalment = 40,000/5,000 = 8

Once the payment starts outstanding balances will go on diminishing.

Hence, from point of view of interest, principal = 40,000 + 35000 + 30,000 + 25,000 + 20,000 + 15,000 + 10,000 + 5000 = Rs 1,80,000

Interest on Rs. 1,80,000 for 1 month at 16% p.a. = (1,80,000 × 16 × 1)/(100 × 12) = Rs. 2,400

Average rate of interest = (100 × I)/(P × T)

Time = 8 months = 8/12 year

= 2400 × 100 × 12/ 40,000 × 8 = 9%

QUESTION: 13

A fruit vendor bought 500 bananas at Rs 25 per 10 bananas. 200 bananas got spoiled and hence thrown. He sold 12 dozen bananas at the rate of Rs 20 per dozen and the remaining at Rs 3 per banana. What is the approximate profit/loss percent?

Solution:

Cost Price of bananas = 500 × 25/10 = Rs 1,250

Remaining bananas = 500 – 200 = 300

Selling Price of bananas sold at Rs 20 per dozens = 20 × 12 = Rs 240

Selling Price of bananas sold at Rs 3 per banana = (300 – 12 × 12) × 3 = Rs 468

Total S.P = 240 + 468 = Rs 708

Loss % = [(1250 – 708)/1250] × 100 = 43.36%

QUESTION: 14

The difference between the selling price at a discount of 40% and that at two successive discounts of 20% and 10% is Rs. 132. Find the marked price of the laptop?

Solution:

Let the Marked Price be x

In the first case, Selling Price at 40% discount = 60x/100

Single discount equivalent to 20% and 10% successive discounts = [20 + 10 – {(20 × 10)/100}] = 28%

Selling Price in the second case = 72x/100

Now, 72x/100 - 60x/100 = 132

12x/100 = 132

x = 100 × 132/12 = Rs. 1100

QUESTION: 15 Solution:  QUESTION: 16

65% of 8/13 of 7565 =? + 895

QUESTION: 17

What was the price of a Car last year?

I. The ratio of the price of two Car P to Q was 3:4 last year.
II. This year, the price of car P has increased by 20% and that of car Q by Rs 20,000.
III. This year the ratio of the price of car P to car Q is 4:5.

Solution:

Let the price of two car A and B be 4x and 5x respectively

{3x × 120/100}/{4x + 20,000} = 4/5

18x = 16x + 80,000

18x – 16x = 80,000

2x = 80,000

x = 40,000

Last year the price of car P was 40,000 × 3 = Rs 1,20,000

Hence all the statements together are required to answer the question.

QUESTION: 18

14% of the voters in an election did not cast their votes. In the election, there were only two candidates. The winner by obtaining 46% of the total votes defeated his contestant by 810 votes. The total number of voters in the election were

Solution:

Let the total numbers of voters be x

Vote cast = 86% of x =43x/50

Votes in favour of winning candidates = 46x/100 = 23x/100

Votes polled by defeated candidates = 43x/50 – 23x/50 = 20x/50

23x/50 – 20x/50 = 810

3x/50 = 810

x = 13,500

QUESTION: 19

A box contains 4 yellow, 3 green and 5 maroon pillow covers. If three covers are picked at random, what is the probability that either all are yellow or either all are maroon?

Solution:

Required probability = n (E)/n(S) = 14/220 = 7/110
