QUESTION: 1

In the following question, some part of the sentence may have errors. Find out which part of the sentence has an error and select the appropriate option. If a sentence is free from error, select ‘No Error’.

Q. India is in no way (A) / inferior than China(B) / any aspect whatsoever(C) / No error(D)

Solution:

The comparative preposition 'than' is used only when there is comparative degree used with an adjective (such as taller). The adjectives inferior or superior are suggestive of this difference in themselves, and do not require a comparative suffix (-er). The correct preposition to be used here, then, becomes 'to'.
Therefore, the correct answer is option 2.

Correct sentence: 
India is in no way inferior to China any aspect whatsoever. 

QUESTION: 2

In the following question, some part of the sentence may have errors. Find out which part of the sentence has an error and select the appropriate option. If a sentence is free from error, select ‘No Error’.

Solution:

To be averse is to not like something. 'To averse to' is the correct usage and not the preposition 'with'.

Those who are averse to hard work, will seldom succeed in life.

Q. The teacher asked the students to read the instructions careful.

Solution:

The sentence uses the adjective 'careful', which is incorrect.

As the word 'careful' is used at the end of the sentence and is meant as an adverb, the adverb form should be used. The adverb form of careful becomes 'carefully'.
Therefore, the correct answer is option 2.

The teacher asked the students to read the instructions carefully.

QUESTION: 4

In the following sentence, a part of the sentence is underlined. Below are given alternatives to the underlined part, which may improve the sentence. Choose the correct alternative. In case no improvement is needed, choose the alternative that indicates 'No improvement.'

In the following question, by using which mathematical operators will the expression become correct?

166_765_85_12_13 = 19

Solution:

Using BODMAS rule, we have:
+, ×, ÷, - → 166 + 765 × 85 ÷ 12 – 13 = 5571.75
÷, -, +, × → 166 ÷ 765 - 85 + 12 × 13 = 71.21
+, ÷, -, ×  166 + 765 ÷ 85 - 12 × 13 = 19
÷, -, ×, + → 166 ÷ 765 - 85 × 12 + 13 = -1006.78

QUESTION: 31

If on Sept. 11, 1975 it was Thursday, then what was the day of the week on Sept. 11, 1977?

Solution:

In an ordinary year, there are 365 days and on dividing 365 by 7 we get remainder = 1 so this extra one day is taken as an odd day.

Similarly, in a leap year, there are 366 days and on dividing 366 by 7 we get remainder = 2 so these extra 2 days are taken as the odd days.

Thus, the remainder which we get after dividing the number of days by 7 is considered as odd days.

Now, we have to calculate the odd days from Sept. 11, 1975 – Sept. 10, 1977.

Sept. 11, 1975 – Sept. 10, 1976 = 366 days = 2 odd days (as 1976 is the leap year and February 29 is included in this period).

Sept. 11, 1976 – Sept. 10, 1977 = 365 day = 1 odd day

Total odd days = 3
Thus, Sept. 11, 1977 is 3 days (of the week) beyond the day of Sept. 11, 1975.

∴ Sept. 11, 1975 (Thursday) → Sept. 11, 1977 (Sunday)
Hence, ‘Sunday’ is the correct answer.

Solution:

Let the height of the tower be H mtr

When two trains are moving towards each other,

Their relative speed = 25 + 83 = 108 km/hr = 108 × 5/18 = 30 m/sec.

This means that the trains cover a distance of 30 m in 1 second

∴ The distance between the trains 1 second before collision is 30 m

QUESTION: 53

If 3tanθ = 2, find the value of (2sinθ – cosθ)/(2cosθ – sinθ).

Solution:

3tanθ = 2
⇒ tanθ = 2/3

In this triangle, length of base = 3, length of opposite side = 2
⇒ length of hypotenuse = (32 + 22)1/2
⇒ Length of hypotenuse = 131/2
⇒ sinθ = 2/131/2, cosθ = 3/131/2
⇒ (2sinθ – cosθ)/(2cosθ – sinθ) = (2 × 2 – 3)/(2 × 3 – 2) = (4 – 3)/(6 – 2) = 1/4

QUESTION: 55

A number when divided by 24 leaves a remainder of 16, when divided by 28 leaves a remainder of 20, and when divided by 15 leaves a remainder of 7. Find the number?

Solution:

Common difference of quotient:
⇒ 24 – 16 = 8
⇒ 28 – 20 = 8
⇒ 15 – 7 = 8
LCM of (24, 28, 15) = 840
∴ Number = 840 – 8 = 832

QUESTION: 56

Find the unit digit of 12795 + 26 × 48 × 173.

Solution:

Unit digit of 12795 is same as the unit digit of 795
⇒ 795 = 7(92 + 3)
⇒ 74 × 23 + 3

According to cyclicity of 7, unit digit of
⇒ 7= 7
⇒ 7= 9
⇒ 7= 3
⇒ 7= 1

Hence unit digit of 74 × 23 + 3 is 3.
Now, unit digit of 26 × 48 × 173 is same as unit digit of 6 × 8 × 3 which is 4
So, unit digit of 12795 + 26 × 48 × 173 is 3 + 4, i.e. 7

QUESTION: 57

Calculate the value of angle FED from the figure shown below.

Solution:

AB/DF = 3.8/7.6 = 1/2
BC/EF = 6/12 = 1/2
AC/ED = 3√3/6√3 = 1/2

As, Ratio of corresponding sides of both triangles are equal so, triangle ABC and DEF are similar and hence corresponding angle will be equal

∴ ∠FED = ∠ACB = 180° – (∠ABC + ∠BAC) = 180° – (80° + 60°) = 40°

QUESTION: 58

What will be the equation of a line with slope 3 and passing through the point (2, 1)?

Solution:

Let the equation of the straight line be y = mx + c [where m = slope]
Here slope = 3,
∴ y = 3x + c
The line passes through the point (2, 1),
∴ 1 = 3 × 2 + c
⇒ c = -5
∴ Equation of the straight line,
⇒ y = 3x - 5

QUESTION: 59

The present age of Sumit is 1/7th of the present age of Ashok and the age of Ashok will be twice the age of Jitendra after 6 years. Find the present age of Jitendra, if the average age of all three persons is 22.

Solution:

Since average age of all three persons is 22;
∴ S + A + J = 66   ---- (1)
∵ The present age of Sumit is 1/7th of the present age of Ashok;
∴ S = A/7   ---- (2)
And the age of Ashok will be twice the age of Jitendra after 6 years;
∴ A + 6 = 2(J + 6)
⇒ J = [(A + 6)/2] - 6   ---- (3)
From equation (1), (2) and (3)
⇒ A/7 + A + [(A + 6)/2] - 6 = 66
⇒ [2A + 14A + 7A + 42 - 84]/14 = 66
⇒ 23A = 924 + 84 - 42 = 966
⇒ A = 42
∴ J = [(42 + 6)/2] - 6 = 18
∴ Present age of Jitendra = 18 years

QUESTION: 60

A trader gives a discount of 12% on the marked price. To earn profit of 32%, by how much percent should he mark the price of his goods higher than its cost price?

Solution:

Let the marked price of an article be Rs. x.
∵ Discount = 12%
∴ Its S.P = Rs. 0.88x
∴ S.P = C.P + 32C.P/100
⇒ S.P = C.P × (132/100)
⇒ C.P = S.P × (100/132)
⇒ C.P = 0.88x × 100/132 = 2x/3
Now, M.P = Rs. x and C.P = 2x/3
⇒ M.P - C.P = x - 2x/3 = x/3

QUESTION: 61

In the first 26 overs of a cricket match, the run rate was 5.4 runs/over. What is the required run rate in the remaining 24 overs to reach the target of 294 runs?​

Solution:

Runs scored in 1st 26 overs = 26 × 5.4 = 140.4

QUESTION: 62

ABCD is a cyclic trapezium with AB || DC and AB is diameter of the circle. If ∠CAB = 50° then ∠ADC is –

Solution:

We can see from the figure that,

 
ΔABC is right angled triangle,
⇒ ∠ABC = 90° - ∠CAB = 90° - 50° = 40°
Now,
∵ ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral,
Opposite angles are supplementary.
⇒ ∠ABC + ∠ADC = 180°
⇒ 40° + ∠ADC = 180°
⇒ ∠ADC = 140°
∴ ∠ADC = 140°

QUESTION: 63

If price of the table is increased by 25%, then a person can buy 25 table less for Rs. 25000. What is the original price (in Rs) of the table?

Solution:

Let the price of one Table be Rs. x
Table bought for Rs. 25000 = 25000/x
New price = x + 25% of x = x + 0.25x = 1.25x
Tables bought for Rs. 25000 = 25000/1.25x = 20000/x
According to question,
⇒ (25000/x) - (20000/x) = 25
⇒ 25000 - 20000 = 25x
⇒ 25x = 5000
∴ x = 200

QUESTION: 64

A bullet fired from a rifle travels at an average speed of 2520 km/hr. It hits the target after 0.2 seconds. How far (in m) is the target from the rifle?

Solution:

Speed = 2520 km/hr and time = 0.2 sec = 0.2/3600 hr
∴ Distance = 2520 × (0.2/3600) = 0.140 km = 140 m

QUESTION: 65

A pump can fill a tank in 4 hours, but due to a leak, the tank now gets filled in 5 hours. How long will it take the leakage to empty the tank when it is full?

Solution:

Let the total amount of work done in filling a tank be 20 units. (L.C.M of 4 and 5)
A pump can fill a tank in 4 hours,
⇒ Work done by pump in 1 hour = 20/4 = 5 units.

Due to a leak, the tank now gets filled in 5 hours,
⇒ Work done by Pump and Leakage together in 1 hour = 20/5 = 4 units.
⇒ Work done by leakage in 1 hour = -1 units.
∴ Time required for leakage to empty the tank = -20/-1 = 20 hours.

QUESTION: 66

What sum will yield Rs. 491.68 as simple interest at 8% per annum for 1 year and 2 months?

Solution:

Let the sum be x,
Interest earned on it = (x × 8 × 14/12) /100
⇒ (x × 8 × 14/12) /100 = 491.68
⇒ x × 8 × 14/12 = 49168
⇒ x = (49168 × 12) / (8 × 14)
∴ x = Rs. 5268

QUESTION: 67

If the cost price of 6 articles is equal to the selling price of 8 articles, then what is the loss percentage?

Solution:

Let cost price of an article be Rs. 1.
C.P of 6 articles = Rs. 6
Selling price of 8 articles = Rs. 6
Cost price of 8 article = Rs. 8
Loss percentage
= [(8 - 6)/8] × 100
= (2/8) × 100
= 25%
∴ Loss percentage is 25%.
