Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 1

A mixture contains milk and water in the ratio 2 : 3 and the other contains them in the ratio 3 : 1 respectively. What weight of 2nd mixture must be taken so as to make a third mixture 7 litres in weight with 70% milk?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 1

C) 6 litres Explanation: 70/100 = 7/10
Milk in first = 2/(2+3) = 2/5, milk in second = 3/(3+1) = 3/4 By method of allegation: 2/5                                3/4
.                  7/10
3/4 – 7/10               7/10 – 2/5
1/20 : 3/10
1 : 6
So in 3rd mixture, 2nd mixture is [6/(1+6)] * 7 = 6 litres

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 2

How many kg of wheat costing Rs 8 per kg must be mixed with 8 Kg of wheat costing Rs 12 per Kg, so that there may be gain of 20% by selling the mixture of Rs 11.52 per Kg?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 2

D) 12 kg Explanation: With 20% gain and SP = 11.52, CP = (100/120)*11.52 = 9.6 By method of allegation: 1st wheat (x kg)                2nd wheat (8 kg) 8                                                12
.                             9.6
12-9.6                                        9.6-8
2.4 1.6
3 : 2
So x/8 = 3/2

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 3

15 litres of the milk is drawn out of a jar and filled with water. This operation is performed 1 more times. If the ratio of the quantity of milk left in jar to that of water in jar is 16 : 9, what was the initial quantity of milk present in the jar?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 3

E) 75 litres Explanation: Let initial quantity of milk = x litres After two times, quantity of milk left in jar = x [1 – 15/x] So x [1 – 15/x] / x = 16/16+9 [1 – 15/x] = 16/25 Square root both sides, so [1 – 15/x] = 4/5 Solve, x = 75

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 4

Wheat worth Rs 30 per kg and Rs 42 per kg are mixed with a third variety of wheat in the ratio 1 : 1 : 2 respectively. The mixture is worth Rs 42 per kg. Find the price (per kg) of the third variety of wheat.

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 4

B) Rs 48 Explanation: Since 1st and 2nd wheat mixed in equal ratio, their average price = (30+42)/2 = 72/2 = Rs 36 Let 3rd variety of wheat be Rs x per kg So they are mixed as : (1+1) : 2 = 1 : 1 So 36                              x .                 42
x-42                     42-36=6 so x-42/6 = 1/1 solve, x = 48

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 5

 A mixture contains A and B in the ratio 5 : 9. 14 litres of this mixture is taken out and 14 litres of B is poured in. Now the ratio of A to B becomes 2 : 5. Find the amount of B originally present in the mixture.

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 5

B) 45 litres Explanation: Total = 5x+9x+14 = 14x+14 So 5x/9x+14 = 2/5 Solve, x = 4 So total = 14*4 + 14 = 70 litres So B = 9/(5+9) * 70 = 45

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 6

 A mixture contains A and B in the ratio 5 : 7. 24 litres of this mixture is taken out and 15 litres of A is poured in. Now the ratio of A to B becomes 10 : 7. Find the amount of B originally present in the mixture.

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 6

E) 35 litres Explanation: Total = 5x+7x+24 = 12x+24 So 5x+15/7x = 10/7 Solve, x = 3 So total = 12*3 + 24 = 60 litres So B = 7/(5+7) * 60 = 35

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 7

Milk contains 20% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 75 litres of this milk to reduce the quantity of water to 15%?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 7

A) 25 litres Explanation: To have final mixture with water 15% means, milk = (100-15) = 85% Pure milk is 100% milk, and in 75 litres of milk there is 80% milk so Milk (75 litres)                        Pure milk (x litres) 80                                                  100
.                             85
15                                                        5
3 : 1
So 75/x = 3/1 Solve, x = 25

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 8

An article is bought for Rs 560. Some of the part is sold at 20% profit and remaining at 15% loss giving a total of 10% profit. Find the cost price of part sold at 20% profit.

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 8

C) Rs 400 Explanation: 20                         -15
.                10
10-(-15)                 20-10
25 : 10
5 : 2
So at 20% profit = 5/(5+2) * 560

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 9

A man travelled a distance of 75 km in 5 hours partly on foot at the rate of 6 km/hour and partly by scooter at 18 km/hour. Find the distance travelled by scooter?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 9

D) 67.5 km Explanation: Average speed = 75/5 = 15 km/hr By method of allegation: 6                          18
.             15
3                           9
1 : 3
1 : 3 is the ratio of times.
So time by scooter = 3/(1+3) * 5 = 3.75 hrs So distance by scooter = 3.75 * 18

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 10

A 50 litres mixture of milk and water contains 10% water. 10 litres of this mixture is replaced by 10 litres of milk. What is the percentage of water in the final mixture?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 10

B) 8%
Explanation: When 10 litres taken out, quantity of mixture left =50-10=40, so milk left = 90/100 *40 = 36 And water left = (10/100)*40 = 4 now 10 litres of milk poured in, so there is no change in quantity of water, and total mixture again becomes 50l so water now is 4/50 * 100 = 8%

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 11

A 30 litres milk-water mixture contains 50% milk. How much pure milk need to be added to this mixture to make the mixture 30% water?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 11

D) 20 litres Explanation: 30 litres mixture contains 15 litres of water. When milk added to this, quantity of water will remain same (i.e. 15 l) Let x l of pure milk to be added, then 30% of (30+x) = 15 Solve, x = 20

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 14

B) Rs 800 Explanation: 216 = 2000*r*1/100 r = 10.8% By the method of allegation: 1st part           2nd part 8                         15
.           10.8
4.2                      2.8
4.2 : 2.8 = 3 : 2
At 15% = (2/5) * 2000

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 15

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 17

How many kilograms of wheat at Rs 42 per kg be mixed with 25 kg of wheat at Rs 24 per kg so that on selling the mixture at Rs 40 per kg, there is a gain of 25%? 

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 17

B) 20 kg Explanation: Let x kg of wheat at Rs 42 per kg be mixed SP = 40, gain% = 25%, so CP = (100/125) * 40 = Rs 32 So 1st wheat(x kg)                2nd wheat(25 kg) 42                                               24
.                            32

So 8/10 = x/25 Solve, x = 20

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 18

150 kg of wheat is at Rs 7 per kg. 50 kg is sold at 10% profit. At what rate per kg the remaining need to be sold so that there is a profit of 20% on the total price?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 18

C) Rs 8.75 Explanation: Let remaining 100 kg at x%. so, 50 kg               100 kg 10%                   x% .            20%
(x-20)                 10 So (x-20)/10 = 50 kg/100 kg Solve, x = 25% 100 kg costs = 100*7 = Rs 700 So at 25% profit SP of 100 kg is (125/100) * 700 = Rs 875 So SP of 1 kg = 875/100 = 8.75

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 19

A can contains milk and water in the ratio 3:1. A part of this mixture is replaced with milk, and now the new ratio of milk to water is 15:4.What proportion of original mixture had been replaced by milk?

Detailed Solution for Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 19

D) 3/19
Explanation: Let total original quantity = x litres, Let y litres replaced.
After y litres of mixture drawn out, Milk = [3/(3+1)] * x – [3/(3+1)] * y Water = [1/(3+1)] * x – [1/(3+1)] * y Now y litres of milk poured in can. Milk becomes (3/4)*x – (3/4)*y +y = (3/4)*x + (1/4)*y Now [(3/4)*x +(1/4)*y] / [(1/4)*x – (1/4)*y] = 15/4 Solve, y = (3/19)* x So 3/19 of original mixture removed.

Mixtures And Alligations - MCQ 5 - Question 20

A can contains 40 litres of milk at Rs 3.5 per litre. How much water must be added to this can so that the cost of milk reduces to Rs 2 per litre?

.                        2
2                                        1.5
Ratio = 2 : 1.5 = 4 : 3 so 4/3 = 40/x solve, x = 30
