Adam, Boris and Khan start from the same place and travel in the same direction at speeds of 15, 30 and 60 km per hour respectively. Boris starts two hours after Adam. If Boris and Khan overtake Adam at the same instant, how many hours after Adam did Khan start?
Let us assume that Adam started running at 10 AM and Boris started at 12 noon.
So, in these two hours’ distance travelled by Adam is 30 km and the relative speed of Boris with respect to Adam is 15 km/hr.
So Boris will overtake Adam after =30/15 =2 hrs
So, Boris reaches there at 2 PM.
So, Khan also overtakes Adam at 2 PM.
Let us assume Khan takes t time to overtake Adam and the relative speed of Khan with respect to Adam is 45 km/hr and Adam ran for 4 hrs.
So, distance travelled by Adam is:
= time × speed
= 4 × 45 ……. (i)
While Khan's distance travelled is:
=t × 60  (ii)
Since distance travelled by them is equal,
⇒ (i) = (ii)
⇒ 4 × 45 = t × 60
T = 3 hours
So, after 3 hrs, Khan will start running.
If '+’ means 'x’, ‘’ means ÷ ’, ÷’ means ‘+’ and 'x’ means ‘’, then what will be the value of (16 ÷ 32  2 x 3 + 4) = ?
Given that
Equation is (16 ÷ 32  2 × 3 + 4)
Now, by assigning the proper signs in the given expression,
16 + 32 ÷ 2 – 3 x 4 = 16 + 16 – 12 = 20
The sum of the digits of a twodigit number is 11. If 45 is added to the number, then the digits are reversed. Find the number.
Given
x + y = 11………(i)
10x + y + 45 = 10y + x ……….. (ii)
From equation (i) and (ii), we get
X = 3 and y =8
So, the number is 38.

A tank has two pipes – A and B, attached to it. A can fill the tank in 20 minutes, whereas pipe B can empty the tank in 30 minutes. If both A and B are opened alternately for one minute each, how long will it take to fill the tank?
Pipe A can fill the tank in 20 minutes.
So, part of the tank filled in 1 minute = 1/20
Pipe B can empty the tank in 30 minutes.
So, part of tank emptied in 1 minute = 1/30
Part of tank filled in 2 minutes (Pipe A is opened for 1 minute and Pipe B is opened for the next 1 minute)= 1/20 – 1/30 = 1/60
Part of the tank filled in 59 × 2 = 118 minutes = 59/60.
The last 1/60th part is filled in 119th minute.
Hence, the tank is filled in around 119 minutes.
Option (d) is the correct answer.

A sum of money kept in a bank amounts to Rs. 1240 in 4 years and Rs. 1600 in 10 years at simple interest. Find the sum.
Let P be the principal and I as Simple Interest A = P + I

P + 10I = 1600 ...... (ii)
From (i) and (ii), we get P = 1000 and I = 60
In a certain coding language, HENCE is coded as FGLEC. What shall THERE be in that code?
The code can be explained as:
H 2 → F
E + 2 → G
N  2 → L
C + 2 → E
E – 2 → C
So, THERE can be coded as: T – 2 → R

E 2 → C
R + 2 → T
E – 2 → C
Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.
Anjali is as much younger to Vijaya as Tanya is younger to Anjali. If the sum of the ages of Vijaya and Tanya is 48, how old is Anjali?
Let the age of Anjali = x years.
And, let the difference in the ages of Anjali and Vijaya = a years.
Age of Vijaya = x + a years
Age of Tanya = x – a years
As given in the question, sum of ages of Vijaya and Tanya = 48
(x – a) + (x + a) = 48
or 2x = 48
or x = 24 years.
Age of Anjali = x = 24 years
Hence, option (c) is the correct answer.
The average mark of 15 students in a CSAT test is 50. If the average mark of the first eight students is 47 and that of the last eight students is 55, then what will be the marks of the 8th student?

= (376 + 440)  750
= 816 – 750
= 66
At a specific rate of simple interest, a sum doubles itself in 5 years. In how many years will it becomes four times itself?
Let the principal be Rs. 100, Time = 5 years
∴ Amount = Rs. 200
Interest = (200100) = Rs. 100
Now amount = Rs. 400
∴ Interest = (400 – 100) = Rs. 300
A person had to multiply two numbers. Instead of multiplying by 33, the person multiplied by 51, and the product went up by 360. What is the raised product?
51 – 33 = 18
So the number which was to be multiplied was 360/(5133) = 360/18 = 20
So, the result would be 20 x 51 = 1020.
There are 52 beggars outside a temple. Three hundred twelve apples are distributed among them so that each man gets nine apples and each woman gets five apples.
Find the number of men and women outside the temple.
Let the number of men beggars be x and women beggars are y. x + y = 52 ........ (i)
9x + 5y = 312 .......... (ii)
Solving (i) and (ii) we get
9y – 5y = 468 – 312
4y = 156
∴ x = 52 – 39 = 13
y = 39
Thus, Men = 13 and Women = 39

The sum of the factors of a number is 124. What is the number?
Any number of the form p^{a}q^{b}r^{c} will have (a + 1) (b + 1)(c + 1) factors, where p, q, r are prime. (This is a very important idea)
For any number N of the form p^{a}q^{b}r^{c}, the sum of the factors will (1+p^{1}+p^{2}+…+p^{a})(1+q^{1}+q^{2}+…+q^{b}) (1+r^{1}+r^{2}+…+r^{c})
Sum of factors of number N is 124. 124 can be factorized as 2^{2} × 31. It can be written as 4 × 31, or 2 × 62 or 1 × 124.
2 cannot be written as (1+p^{1}+p^{2}+…+p^{a}) for any value of p.
4 can be written as (1 + 3)
So, we need to see if 31 can be written in that form.
The interesting bit here is that 31 can be written in two different ways.
= 31= (1+2^{1}+2^{2}+2^{3}+2^{4})
= 31= (1+5+5^{2})
Or, the number N can be 3×2^{4} or 3×5^{2}. Or N can be 48 or 75.
So, more than one such number exists.
There are 15 students in art class and 37 students in dance class and 12 students are enrolled in both activities. When two classes meet at different hours find the number of students, who are either in art class or in dance class.
Let A be the set of students in art class and B be the set of students in dance class.)
n(A) =15, n(B) = 37, n (A ∩ B) = 12
When 2 classes meet at different hours
n (A ∪ B) = n(A) + n(B)  n (A ∩ B)
= 15 + 37  12
= 52  12
= 40

All the page numbers in a book are added, beginning from page 1. However, a page number was added twice by mistake. If the sum obtained was 850, which page number must have been added twice?
Let the total number of pages in the book be ‘n’.
Let page number ‘x’ be repeated.
⇒ x + n(n+1) /2 = 850
So, n(n+1)/2 ≤ 850
⇒ n^{2} + n ≤ 1700
The greatest possible value of n = 40.
Now, for n = 40, n(n+1)/2 = 40×41/2 = 820
So, x = 30.
