Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 1

The average of 30 integers is 5. Among these 30 integers, there are exactly 20 which do not exceed 5. What is the highest possible value of the average of these 20 integers?

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 1 It is given that the average of the 30 integers = 5

Sum of the 30 integers = 30*5=150

There are exactly 20 integers whose value is less than 5.

To maximise the average of the 20-integers, we have to assign minimum value to each of the remaining 10 integers

so the sum of 10 integers = 10*6=60

The sum of the 20 integers = 150-60 = 90

Average of 20 integers = 90/20=4.5

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 2

Amal invests Rs 12000 at 8% interest, compounded annually, and Rs 10000 at 6% interest, compounded semi-annually, both investments being for one year. Bimal invests his money at 7.5% simple interest for one year. If Amal and Bimal get the same amount of interest, then the amount, in Rupees, invested by Bimal is


Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 2 The amount with Amal at the end of 1 year = 12000*1.08+10000*1.03*1.03=23569

Interest received by Amal = 23569 – 22000=1569

Let the amount invested by Bimal = 100b

Interest received by Bimal = 100b*7.5*1/100=7.5b

It is given that the amount of interest received by both of them is the same

7.5b=1569

b=209.2

Amount invested by Bimal = 100b = 20920

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 3

What is the largest positive integer n such that n2+7n+12/n2 – n-12 is also a positive integer?

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 3 n2+3n+4n+12/n2 - 4n+3n - 12

= n (n+3)+4(n+3)/n(n-4)+3(n-4)

= (n+4)(n+3)/(n-4)(n+3)

= (n+4)/(n-4)

=(n-4)+8/(n-4)

= 1 + 8/(n-4) which will be maximum when n-4 =8

n=12

D is the correct answer.

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 4

How many pairs (m, n) of positive integers satisfy the equation m2 + 105 = n2?


Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 4 n2- m2 = 105

(n-m) (n+m) = 1 *105, 3*35, 5*21, 7*15, 15*7, 21 *5, 35*3,105*1.

n – m=1, n+m=105==> n=53, m=52

n – m=3, n+m=35 ==> n=19, m=16

n – m=5, n+m=21 ==>n=13, m=8

n – m=7, n+m=15 ==> n=11, m=4

n – m=15, n+m=7 ==> n=11, m=-4

n – m=21, n+m=5 ==> n=13, m=-8

n – m=35, n+m=3 ==> n=19, m=-16

n – m=105, n+m=1 ==> n=53, m=-52

Since only positive integer values of m and n are required. There are 4 possible solutions.

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 5

Two ants A and B start from a point P on a circle at the same time, with A moving clock-wise and B moving anti-clockwise. They meet for the first time at 10:00 am when A has covered 60% of the track. If A returns to P at 10:12 am, then B returns to P at

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 5 When A and B met for the first time at 10:00 AM, A covered 60% of the track.

So B must have covered 40% of the track.

It is given that A returns to P at 10:12 AM i.e. A covers 40% of the track in 12 minutes 60% of the track in 18 minutes

B covers 40% of track when A covers 60% of the track.

B covers 40% of the track in 18 minutes.

B will cover the rest 60% in 27 minutes, hence it will return to B at 10:27 AM

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 6

Let a1, a2... be integers such that

a1- a2 + a3-a4+.... + (—1) n-1an = n, for all n ≥ 1.

Then a51 + a52+ ....+a1023 equals

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 6 a1 − a2 + a3 − a4+.... + (−1) n−1an = n

It is clear from the above equation that when n is odd, the co-efficient of a is positive otherwise negative.

a1- a2 = 2

a1 = a2 + 2

a1 − a2 + a3 = 3

On substituting the value of ai in the above equation, we get

a3 = 1

a1 -a2 + a3 -a4 = 4

On substituting the values of a1, a3 in the above equation, we get

a4 = -1

a1 – a2 + a3 – a4 + a5 = 5

On substituting the values of a1, a3, a4in the above equation, we get

a5 = 1

So we can conclude that a3, a5,a7….. an+1 = 1 and a2, a4, a6....a2n = -1

Now we have to find the value of a51 + a52 + ....+ a1023

Number of terms = 1023=51+(n-1)1

n=973

There will be 486 even and 487 odd terms, so the value of a51 + a52 + .... + a1023 = 486*-1+487*1

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 9 Given, The quadratic equation x2 + bx + c = 0 has two roots 4a and 3a

7a=-b

12a2 = c

We have to find the value of b2 + c = 49a2+ 12a2=61a2

Now let’s verify the options

61 a2 = 3721 ==> a= 7.8 which is not an integer

61 a2 = 361 ==> a= 2.42 which is not an integer

61 a2 = 427 ==> a= 2.64 which is not an integer

61 a2 = 3721 ==> a= 3 which is an integer

The base of a regular pyramid is a square and each of the other four sides is an equilateral triangle, length of each side being 20 cm. The vertical height of the pyramid, in cm, is

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 10 It is given that the base of the pyramid is square and each of the four sides are equilateral triangles.

Length of each side of the equilateral triangle = 20cm

Since the side of the triangle will be common to the square as well, the side of the square = 20cm

Let h be the vertical height of the pyramid i.e. OA

OB = 10 since it is half the side of the square

AB is the height of the equilateral triangle i.e. 10√3

AOB is a right angle, so applying the Pythagorean formula, we get

OA2 + OB2 = AB2

h2 + 100= 300

h=10√2

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 15

A cyclist leaves A at 10 am and reaches B at 11 am. Starting from 10:01 am, every minute a motorcycle leaves A and moves towards B. Forty-five such motorcycles reach B by 11 am. All motorcycles have the same speed. If the cyclist had doubled his speed, how many motorcycles would have reached B by the time the cyclist reached B?

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 15 It is given that starting from 10:01 am, every minute a motorcycle leaves A and moves towards B.

Forty-five such motorcycles reach B by 11 am.

It means that the forty-fifth motorcycle starts at 10:45 AM at A and reaches B by 11:00 AM i.e., 15 minutes.

Since the speed of all the motorcycles is the same, all the motorcycles will take the same duration i.e. 15 minutes.

If the cyclist doubles the speed, then he will reach B by 10:30 AM. (Since if the speed is doubled, time is reduced by half)

Since each motorcycle takes 15 minutes to reach B, 15 motorcycles would have reached B by the time the cyclist reaches B

A man makes complete use of 405 cc of iron, 783 cc of aluminium, and 351 cc of copper to make a number of solid right circular cylinders of each type of metal. These cylinders have the same volume and each of these has radius 3 cm. If the total number of cylinders is to be kept at a minimum, then the total surface area of all these cylinders, in sq cm, is

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 16 It is given that the volume of all the cylinders is the same, so the volume of each cylinder = HCF of (405,783, 351) = 27

The number of iron cylinders = 405/27 = 15

The number of aluminium cylinders = 783/27 = 29

The number of copper cylinders = 315/27 = 13

15*πr2h= 405

15*π9*h= 405

πh = 3

Now we have to calculate the total surface area of all the cylinders

Total number of cylinders = 15+29+13 = 57

Total surface area of the cylinder = 57*(2πrh + 2πr2)

=57(2*3*3 + 2*9*π)

=1026(1 + π)

Amal sells his table to Bimal at a profit of 30%, while Asim sells his table to Barun at a loss of 30%. If the amounts paid by Bimal and Barun are x and y, respectively, then (x - y) / p equals

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 24 CP of the table at which the shopkeeper procured each table = p

It is given that shopkeeper sold the tables to Amal and Asim at a profit of 20% and at a loss of 20%, respectively

The selling price of the tables = 1.2p and 0.8p to Amal and Asim respectively.

Amal sells his table to Bimal at a profit of 30%

So, CP of the table by Bimal (x)= 1.2p*1.3 = 1.56p

Asim sells his table to Barun at a loss of 30%

So, CP of the table by Barun (y)= 0.7*0.8p = 0.56p

(x-y)/p = (1.56p-0.56p)/p = p/p=1

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 30

The salaries of Ramesh, Ganesh and Rajesh were in the ratio 6:5:7 in 2010, and in the ratio 3:4:3 in 2015. If Ramesh's salary increased by 25% during 2010-2015, then the percentage increase in Rajesh's salary during this period is closest to

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 30 Let the salaries of Ramesh, Ganesh and Rajesh in 2010 be 6x, 5x, 7x respectively

Let the salaries of Ramesh, Ganesh and Rajesh in 2015 be 3y, 4y, 3y respectively

It is given that Ramesh's salary increased by 25% during 2010=2015,3y = 1.25*6x

y=2-5x

Percentage increase in Rajesh's salary = 7.5 – 7/7=0.07

= 7%

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 31

Let A and B be two regular polygons having a and b sides, respectively. If b = 2a and each interior angle of B is 3/2 times each interior angle of A, then each interior angle, in degrees, of a regular polygon with a + b sides is


Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 31 Each interior angle in an n-sided polygon = (n - 2)180/n

It is given that each interior angle of B is 3/2 times each interior angle of A and b = 2a

(b-2)180/b = 3/2 x(a - 2)180/a

2 x (b - 2) xa = 3 x (a - 2) x b

2(ab-2a) = 3(ab-2b)

ab-6b+4a=0

a*2a-12a+4a=0

2a2- 8a = 0

a(2a-8) = 0

a cannot be zero so 2a=8

a=4, b = 4*2=8

a+b = 12

Each interior angle of a regular polygon with 12 sides = (12-2 )x 180/12

= 150

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 32

Let f be a function such that f (mn) = f (m) f (n) for every positive integers m and n. If f (1), f (2) and f (3) are positive integers, f (1) < f (2), and f (24) = 54, then f (18) equals


Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 32

Given, f(mn) = f(m)f(n)

when m= n= 1, f(1) = f(1)*f(1) ==> f(1) = 1

when m=1, n= 2, f(2) = f(1)*f(2) ==> f(1) = 1

when m=n= 2, f(4) = f(2)* f(2) ==> f(4) = [f(2)]2

Similarly f(8) = f(4)*f(2) =[f(2)]3

f(24) = 54

[f(2)]3 * [f(3)] = 33 * 2

On comparing LHS and RHS, we get

f(2) = 3 and f(3) = 2

Now we have to find the value of f(18)

f(18)=[f(2)]*[f(3)]2

=3*4=12

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 33

Anil alone can do a job in 20 days while Sunil alone can do it in 40 days. Anil starts the job, and after 3 days, Sunil joins him. Again, after a few more days, Bimal joins them and they together finish the job. If Bimal has done 10% of the job, then in how many days was the job done?

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 33 Let the total work be LCM of 20, 40 = 40 units

Efficiency of Anil and Sunil is 2 units and 1 unit per day respectively.

Anil works alone for 3 days, so Anil must have completed 6 units.

Bimal completes 10% of the work while working along with Anil and Sunil.

Bimal must have completed 4 units.

The remaining 30 units of work is done by Anil and Sunil

Number of days taken by them 30/3=10

The total work is completed in 3+10=13 days

Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 34

In an examination, Rama's score was one-twelfth of the sum of the scores of Mohan and Anjali. After a review, the score of each of them increased by 6. The revised scores of Anjali, Mohan, and Rama were in the ratio 11:10:3. Then Anjali's score exceeded Rama's score by

Detailed Solution for Test: CAT Quant 2019 (Shift - 2) - Question 34 Let the scores of Rama, Anjali and Mohan be r, a, m.

It is given that Rama's score was one-twelfth of the sum of the scores of Mohan and Anjali

r= m+a/12…. (1)

The scores of Rama, Anjali and Mohan after review = r+6, a+6, m+6

a+6:m+6:r+6 – 11:10:3

Let a+6 = 11 x => a= 11 x-6

m+6=10x => m=10x-6

r+ 6 =3x => r = 3x-6

Substituting these values in equation (1), we get

3x-6= (21x – 12)/12

12(3x-6) = 21x-12

x=4

Anjali's score exceeds Rama's score by (a-r)=8x= 32
