SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 1

### If B is 20% greater than C and 40% smaller than A then A is what percent larger than C?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 1

Let A, B and C have the value of a, b and c respectively

As B is 20% greater than C

⇒ b = 1.2c

Also, B is 40% smaller than A

⇒ b = 0.6a

From above two relations:

1.2c = 0.6a

⇒ a = 2c

⇒  = 2

⇒ A is double of C

∴ A is 100% larger than C

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 4

A, B and C invest Rs 71,000 in a business. A invests Rs 4000 more than B and B invests Rs 2000 more than C. Out of total profit of Rs. 21300, what is A′s share?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 4

Let C invested Rs x in business.
So, B invested Rs (x+2000)
A invested Rs (x+2000+4000) = Rs (x+6000)
As per the question,
x+(x+2000)+(x+6000) = 71000
⇒3x = 71000−8000
⇒ x = 63000/3 = 21000
So, A has invested = 21000+6000 = Rs 27000
B invested 21000+2000 = Rs 23000
C invested Rs 21,000

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 6

Find the number of factors of 40.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 3 - Question 6

As we know,

For finding number of factors of any number we do prime factorisation of that number.

If X = p1a × p2b, then

Number of factors of X = (a + 1) × (b + 1)

Where, p1, p2 → Prime factors of X

Now, 40 = 23 × 51

⇒ Number of factors of 40 = (3 + 1) × (1 + 1) = 4 × 2 = 8

∴ The number of factors of 40 is 8.
