QUESTION: 1

In the given question, in three out four figures, figure (i) is related to figure (ii) in same particular manner. Spell out the pair in which relationship does not exist between figure (i) and figure (ii).

Solution:

In each pair of figure in option 1, 2 and 4, both the figures are same except that the shape in figure (i) is increased by one in figure (ii), i.e. in option 1, figure (i) has one big circle while figure (ii) has two big circles. There is no other change.

However, in option figure (3), figure (i) is rotated 90 degree clockwise alongwith the addition of the shape to form figure (ii).

Hence option figure (3) is the odd one.

QUESTION: 2

**Read the following passage and find out the inferences stated through the passage.**

With growing industrialisation, it is difficult to reduce air pollution. The world is facing serious problems due to air pollution.

Solution:

**The correct answer is option 1. There should be different restraints on the first world and the third world countries to reduce air pollution.**

There are two examination rooms A and B. If 15 candidates are sent from A to B, the number of students in each room is the same. If 25 candidates are sent from B to A, the number of students in A is double of that in B. Find the number of students in each room.

Solution:

Let the number of students in rooms A and B be x and y respectively.

⇒ x - 15 = y + 15

⇒ x - y = 30 - - - - - equation 1

Also from the given data

⇒ x + 25 = 2 (y - 25)

⇒ x + 25 = 2y - 50

⇒ x - 2y = -75 - - - - - - - equation 2

From equation 1 and equation 2, we get

⇒ Equation 1 - Equation 2, we get y = 105

Substitute y = 105 in equation 1, we get

⇒ x = 135

∴ Number of students in rooms A and B are 135 and 105

Solution:

Part filled by pipe A in 1 hr. = 1/8

Part filled by pipe B in 1 hr. = 1/10

Part filled by pipes A & B in 1 hr. = 1/8 + 1/10 = 9/40

Part filled by pipes A & B in 2 hrs. = 4 × 9/40 = 9/10

∴ After 4 hours, 9/10 part of the cistern is filled

QUESTION: 28

A train travelling with a speed of 65 kmph passes a man travelling with a speed of 7 kmph in an opposite direction in 13s. What is the length of the train?

Solution:

Speed of the train = 65 kmph

Speed of the man = 7 kmph

Since, they travel in the opposite direction

Relative speed = Speed of train + Speed of man = 65 + 7 = 72 kmph

Relative speed = = 20 m/s

Time taken by train to pass the man = 13 s

Length of the train = Relative speed × Time taken by train to pass the man = 20 × 13 = 260 m

QUESTION: 30

11.11% of Aditi’s age is equal to 66.67% of Farah’s age, while 60% of Farah’s age is equal to 20% of Sana’s age. What is the ratio of the ages of Aditi and Sana?

Solution:

Given, 11.11% of Aditi’s age = 66.67% of Farah’s age

⇒ 1/9 × Aditi’s age = 2/3 × Farah’s age

⇒ Aditi’s age = 9 × 2/3 × Farah’s age

⇒ Aditi’s age = 6 × Farah’s age ----(1)

Also, 60% of Farah’s age = 20% of Sana’s age

⇒ 3/5 × Farah’s age = 1/5 × Sana’s age

⇒ Sana’s age = 5 × 3/5 × Farah’s age

⇒ Sana’s age = 3 × Farah’s age ----(2)

Dividing (1) by (2), we get,

⇒ Aditi’s age/Sana’s age = 6/3 = 2

∴ Ages of Aditi and Sana is in the ratio 2 ∶ 1

QUESTION: 32

Marked price of an article is Rs. 7500. It is purchased at a discount of 12%. If Rs. 250 are spent on its repairs, then to gain 20% profit what should be the selling price (in Rs.)?

Solution:

Marked price = M.P = Rs. 7500

After discount of 12%

Purchase price = (1 - 0.12) × 7500 = Rs. 6600

After spending Rs. 250 on repair

Cost price = C.P = Rs. (6600 + 250) = Rs. 6850

To gain a profit of 20%

∴ Selling price = (1 + 0.20) × C.P = 1.2 × 6850 = Rs. 8220

**Shortcut method:**

Selling price = (1 + profit percent/100) × {(1 - discount percent/100) × marked price + repair cost}

∴ Selling price = 1.2 × {(1 - 0.12) × 7500 + 250} = Rs. 8220

16 × 20 ÷ 15 - 4 + 2 = ?

Solution:

The given equation is: 16 × 20 ÷ 15 - 4 + 2 = ?

Here '-' represents '×', '÷' represents '+', '+' represents '÷' and '×' represents '-'. So let’s replace the sign in the above equation.

16 × 20 ÷ 15 - 4 + 2 → 16 - 20 + 15 × 4 ÷ 2 = 16 + 10 = 26

Hence, 26 is the correct alternative.

QUESTION: 37

Amit goes to his office by car at the speed of 80 km/hr and reaches 15 minutes earlier. If he goes at the speed 60 km/hr, he reaches 15 minutes late. What will be the speed (in km/hr) of the car to reach on time?

Solution:

Let the speed to reach on time be s.

Let the distance to office be d.

Time taken by car at 80 km/hr = x = d/s = d/80

Time taken by car at 60 km/hr = y = d/s = d/60

Time taken by car at s km/hr = z = d/s = d/s

Given: x = z – 15/60, y = z + 15/60

⇒ d/80 = d/s – 15/60 = d/s – 1/4 ⇒ d(1/80 – 1/s) = -1/4

⇒ d/60 = d/s + 15/60 = d/s + 1/4 ⇒ d(1/60 – 1/s) = 1/4

Dividing the two equations, we get

(1/80 – 1/s)/(1/60 – 1/s) = -1

⇒ 1/80 – 1/s = 1/s – 1/60

⇒ 2/s = 1/80 + 1/60 = 1/20(1/4 + 1/3) = (1/20)(7/12)

⇒ s = 40 × 12/7 = 480/7 km/h

QUESTION: 38

QUESTION: 39

The H.C.F. of two numbers is 18. First number is of three digits and Second number is of two digits and their L.C.M. is 936. The sum of the numbers is?

Solution:

Let the numbers be 18x and 18y where x and y are co-prime.

LCM of 18x and 18y = 18xy

According to the question,

18xy = 936

⇒ xy = 936/18

⇒ xy = 52

⇒ xy = 13 × 4

⇒ x =13 and y = 4

First number = 18 × 13 = 234

Second number = 18 × 4 = 72

∴ Sum of both numbers = 234 + 72 = 306

QUESTION: 42

A man sold 250 chairs and had a gain equal to selling price of 50 chairs. What is his proﬁt percentage?

Solution:

Let selling price of 1 chair = S.P

Cost price of 1 chair = C.P

Profit in selling 250 chairs = 50 S.P

Profit in selling 1 chair = 50/250 S.P = 0.2 S.P

Profit = S.P - C.P

⇒ 0.2 S.P = S.P - C.P

⇒ C.P = 0.8 S.P

Profit percentage = (profit/C.P) × 100 = (0.2 × S.P/0.8 × S.P) × 100 = 25%

QUESTION: 51

Rs. 5000 amounts to Rs. 6920 in 4 years at a certain rate of interest. If the rate becomes 1.5 times to itself, the amount of the same principal in 5 years will be:

Solution:

P = Rs. 5000, S.I. = Rs. (6920 - 5000) = Rs. 1920, T = 4 years

By putting values, R = 48/5 % p.a.

New rate = (1.5 × 48/5) = 72/5 % p.a.

Now, P = Rs. 5000, R = 72/5 %, T = 5 years

By putting values, S.I. = Rs. 3600

∴ Amount = Rs. (5000 + 3600) = Rs.8600

QUESTION: 52

A student multiplied a number by 4/5 instead of 5/4. What is the percentage error in the calculation?

Solution:

Let the number multiplied be x

Expected answer = 5/4 × x = 1.25x

Answer obtained with wrong calculation = 4/5 × x = 0.8x

Error = (Expected answer – Wrong answer) / (Expected answer) × 100

⇒ (1.25x – 0.8x) / (1.25x) × 100

∴ 0.45/1.25 × 100 = 36%

QUESTION: 54

What is the value of (A + B)^{3 }– (A – B)^{3 }– 6B(A^{2 }– B^{2}) if A = 125 and B = 8?

Solution:

We know that,

(A + B)^{3} = A^{3} + B^{3} + 3A^{2}B + 3AB^{2}

(A – B)^{3} = A^{3} – B^{3} – 3A^{2}B + 3AB^{2}

⇒ (A + B)^{3 }– (A – B)^{3} = 2B^{3} + 6A^{2}B

⇒ (A + B)^{3 }– (A – B)^{3 }– 6B(A^{2} – B^{2}) = 2B^{3} + 6A^{2}B – 6B(A^{2 }– B^{2}) = 8B^{3}

∴ Required value = 8 × 8^{3} = 8 × 512 = 4096

QUESTION: 55

[(289 + 87) ÷ 2 - 7 × 18 ÷ 2 + {(9 + 5) × 19} + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9 = ?

Solution:

[(289 + 87) ÷ 2 - 7 × 18 ÷ 2 + {(9 + 5) × 19} + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9 = ?

[376 ÷ 2 - 7 × 18 ÷ 2 + {(9 + 5) × 19} + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9 = ?

? = [188 - 7 × 18 ÷ 2 + 266 + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9

? = [188 - 7 × 9 + 266 + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9

? = [188 - 63 + 266 + 3 × 7 - 9] × 19 + 9

? = [188 - 63 + 266 + 21 - 9] × 19 + 9

? = 7657 + 9

? = 7666.

QUESTION: 66

For the figure given below, find the value (in degrees) of 2∠A + ∠B.

Solution:

∠ACD (outer angle) = 180° – 45° = 135°

∠CAB + ∠CBA = ∠ACD (outer angle) = 135°

AC = BC (Both are same side given) so ∠CAB = ∠CBA = x°

⇒ x° + x° + 45° = 180°

⇒ 2x° = 135°

⇒ x° = 67.5°

∴ 2∠A + ∠B = 2 × 67.5 + 67.5 = 202.5°

QUESTION: 68

P and Q can do a work in 12 days. Q and R can do the same work in 16 days and R and P can do it in 24 days. Find the approximate time in which P, Q and R can finish the work together.

Solution:

Since, P and Q take 12 days to complete the total amount of work.

∴ In 1 day the amount of work completed by P and Q would be = 1/12

Similarly, Q and R take 16 days to complete the total amount of work.

∴ In 1 day the amount of work completed by P and Q would be = 1/16

Since, R and P take 24 days to complete the total amount of work.

∴ In 1 day the amount of work completed by P and Q would be = 1/24

Let’s assume the individual efficiencyof P, Q and R to complete the work in 1 day is p, q and r respectively.

⇒ 2(p + q + r)

⇒ p + q + r = 3/32

∴ Total no. of days required = 32/3 days. = 10.66 = 11 days (approximate.)
