Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 17

Given equation: 3 ? 1625 ÷ 5 × 2 + 68 - 41 = 680
Let’s check each option:

1) Using option → ×
3 × 1625 ÷ 5 × 2 + 68 – 41
= 3 × 325 × 2 + 68 – 41
= 1950 + 68 – 41
= 1977

2) Using option → +
3 + 1625 ÷ 5 × 2 + 68 – 41
= 3 + 325 × 2 + 68 – 41
= 3 + 650 + 68 – 41
= 680

3) Using option → -
3 - 1625 ÷ 5 × 2 + 68 - 41
= 3 - 325 × 2 + 68 - 41
= 3 - 650 + 68 - 41
= -620

Let’s check each option.
1) (238, 21) → (8 × 3) – 2 = 24 – 2 = 22 ≠ 21
2) (544, 80) → (4 × 4) – 5 = 16 – 5 = 11 ≠ 80
3) (538, 19) → 8 × 3 – 5 = 24 – 5 = 19
4) (634, 18) → 4 × 3 – 6 = 6 ≠ 18
Hence, (538, 19) is the correct alternative.

Let Speed of person from point L to N be a km/hr.
Average speed for the whole journey = 100 km/hr.
If distance of whole journey is same then average speed of journey is =
⇒ 100 = (2 × a × 65)/(65 + a)
⇒ 6500 + 100a = 130a
⇒ 6500 = 30a
⇒ a = 6500/30
⇒ a = 216.67
∴ Speed of person from point L to N is 216.67 km/hr.

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 60

S.I. for 2 years = 2000 - 1500 = Rs. 500
S.I. for 1 year = Rs. 500/2 = Rs. 250
S.I. for 3 years = 3 × 250 = Rs. 750
Required sum = 1500 – 750 = Rs. 750

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 61

In a mixture of 35 litres, the ratio of water and acid is 6 : 1. If 5 litres of acid is added to the mixture, then what will be the ratio of water and acid in the new mixture?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 61

Ratio of water and acid in initial mixture = 6 ∶ 1
Sum of ratios = 6 + 1 = 7
Quantity of acid in 35 litres of initial mixture = (1/7) × 35 = 5 litres
When 5 litres of acid is added in 35 litres of initial mixture,
Quantity of new mixture = 35 + 5 = 40 litres
Quantity of acid in new mixture = 5 + 5 = 10 litres
Quantity of water in new mixture = 40 – 10 = 30 litres
∴ Water-acid ratio in new mixture = 30 ∶ 10 = 3 ∶ 1

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 62

A grain trader has 100 bags of rice. He sold some bags at 10% profit and rest at 20% profit. His overall profit on selling these 100 bags was 14%. How many bags did he sell at 20% profit?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 62

Let the amount of bags sold at 20% profit be x
The average profit = Weighted average of bags sold at 10% and 20% profit
⇒ 14 = [(100 – x) × 10 + x × 20]/100
⇒ 1400 = 1000 + 10x
⇒ 400 = 10
∴ x = 40

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 63

A train of length 180 metres crosses a tree in 15 seconds and crosses another train of the same length travelling in opposite direction in 20 seconds. What is the speed (in km/hr) of the second train?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 63

Time taken to cross the tree = Length of train/Speed of train
⇒ Speed of train = 180/15 = 12 m/sec.
Let the speed of the second train be ‘x’ m/sec.
∵ The trains are moving in opposite directions, hence, their relative speed is the sum of their individual speeds
⇒ Relative speed = x + 12
Now,
Time taken to cross each other = Sum of lengths of trains/Relative speed
⇒ 20 = (180 + 180)/(x + 12)
⇒ x + 12 = 360/20
⇒ x = 18 - 12 = 6 m/sec.
∴ Speed of second train = 6 × 18/5 = 21.6 km/hr.

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 64

What is the units digit of (311)51 × (25)36 ?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 64

Unit digit of 311n is always 1, where n is any natural number.
∴ Unit digit of 31151 is 1
Unit digits of 25n is always 5, where n is any natural number
∴ Unit digit of 2536 is 5
So, Unit digit of (311)51 × (25)36 is the same as the unit digit of (1 × 5)
∴ Unit digit of (311)51 × (25)36 = 5

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 65

The 7th and 12th term of an arithmetic progression are -15 and 5 respectively. What is the 16th term?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 65

Let the first term of A.P. be a and let the difference be d
⇒ a + 6d = -15       ----(i)
⇒ a + 11d = 5       ----(ii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii)
⇒ 5d = 20
⇒ d = 4
Putting the value of d in (i)
⇒ a + 6 × 4 = -15
⇒ a = -15 - 24 = -39
So, 16th term = a + 15d = -39 + 15 × 4 = -39 + 60 = 21

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 66

We can observe that
The statement I is True
423423 = 4= 65536 and 46 = 4096
We can observe that
Statement II is True.
Hence Both I and II are true.

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 67

The difference between cost price and selling price is Rs. 12.54. If loss percentage is 33%, then what is the cost price (in Rs.)?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 67

Given that,
C.P - S.P = 12.54
Loss % = 33%
We know that,
Loss % = (C.P - S.P)/(C.P) × 100
⇒ 33 = (12.54)/(C.P) × 100
∴ C.P = (12.54)/33 × 100 = Rs. 38

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 68

Average of 8 numbers is 40. The average of first three numbers is 46 and the average of next two numbers is 50. If the sixth number is 6 and 10 less than seventh and eighth number respectively, then what is the value of the eighth number?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 68

Sum of the 8 numbers = 8 × 40 = 320
Sum of first 3 numbers = 3 × 46 = 138
Sum of next two numbers = 2 × 50 = 100
Let the 6th number be ‘x
⇒ 7th number = x + 6
⇒ 8th number = x + 10
Hence,
⇒ 138 + 100 + x + x + 6 + x + 10 = 320
⇒ 3x = 320 – 254
⇒ x = 66/3 = 22
∴ The 8th number = 22 + 10 = 32

CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 76

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Some gene mutations produce characteristics so undesirable that it is difficult to imagine any reasonable change in environmental conditions that would make them beneficial. There are mutations that lead to the nondevelopment of hands and feet, to the production of blood that will not clot, to serious malformations of essential organs, and so on. Any mutation that brings about death before the gene producing it can be passed on to another generation is a lethal mutation. A gene governing a lethal characteristic may be dominant. Under such conditions, the lethal gene is removed in the same generation in which it is formed. The lethal gene may, on the other hand, be recessive. Its effect is then not evident if the gene it is paired with is normal. The normal gene carries on for both. When this is the case, the lethal gene will remain in existence and will, every once in a while, make itself evident. These undesirable genes may be passed along for generations, even if dominant, before natural selection culls them out. The more seriously undesirable they are, the more quickly they are removed, but even outright lethal genes will be included among the chromosomes from generation to generation provided they are recessive. These deleterious genes make up the genetic load. The gene pool is necessary for the flexibility that will allow a species to survive and evolve over the eons and the genetic load is the price that must be paid for that. The size of a genetic load depends on two factors: The rate at which a deleterious gene is produced through mutation, and the rate at which it is removed by natural selection. When the rate of removal equals the rate of production, a condition of genetic equilibrium is reached and the level of occurrence of that gene then remains stable over the generations.

Q. What is a lethal mutation?

Detailed Solution for CISF Constable Mock Test - 8 - Question 76

The passage clearly states that a lethal mutation is that which produces death before the gene is passed on to the next generation through procreation or reproduction. Therefore, the correct answer is option 3.
