Journalists argue over functions of a newspaper. I feel that a provincial paper’s purpose is not only to present and project the news objetively and imaginatively, but to help its readers to express themselves more effectively, canalizing their aspirations, making more articulate their demands.

It would be pretentious to think that a newspaper can change the course of world affairs – but at the local limit it can exert influence, it can probe, it can help get things done. The individual’s voice must not be stifled. Instead, the readers should be encouraged to express their opinions, fears, hopes, and their grievances on this Platform.

Veena and Veeru both start from a point towards North. Veena turns to left after walking 10 km. Veeru turns to right after walking the same distance. Veena waits for some time and then walks another 5 km. Whereas Veeru walks only 3 km. They both then return towards South and walk 15 km. forward. How far is Veena from Veeru?

QUESTION: 148

A word is represented by only one set of numbers as given in any one of the alternatives. The sets of numbers given in the alternatives are represented by two classes of alphabets as in two matrics given below. The columns and rows of Matrix I are numbered from 0 to 4 and that of Matrix II are numbered from 5 to 9. A letter from these matrices can be represented first by its row and next by its column, e.g. ‘A’ can be represented by 01, 14 etc. and ‘M’ can be represented by 56, 68 etc. Similarly, you have to identify the set for the word ‘EAGLE’.

Solution:

From matrix I and matrix II,
99=E.
01=A.
44=G.

Letters at odd position = FATO : FATO

Letters at even position = RCIN : NICR

Similarly, for QUANTITATIVE,

Letters at odd position = QATTTV : QATTTV

Letters at even position = UNIAIE : EIAINU

Thus, final answer after merging letters at both position : QEAITATITNVU

Among the equations x + 2y + 9 =0 ; 5x-4=0 ; 2y - 13 = 0; 2x- 3y = 0, the equation of the straight line passing through origin is

Solution:

For a straight line to pass through origin, both of its x & y coordinates should be '0'.

(A) : 2x - 3y = 0

=> If x = y = 0, then L.H.S. = 0 = R.H.S

=> It passes through origin

(B) : x + 2y + 9 = 0

=> If x = y = 0, then L.H.S. = 9 ≠ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

(C) : 5x - 4 = 0

=> If x = 0, then L.H.S. = -4 ≠ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

(D) : 2y - 13 = 0

=> If y = 0, then L.H.S. = -13 ≠ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

If D, E and F are the mid points of BC, CA and AB respectively of the AABC then the ratio of area of the parallelogram DEFB and area of the trapezium CAFD is :

Solution:

Let , each side of the triangle be 2x.
So, AF=FB=BD=DC=CE=EA= x . EF=FD=DE=x ( as always EF= half of BC)
area of the parallelogram DEFB is base×height = (x)×hp​
& area of the trapezium
Clearly , both the heights are to be measured from midpoint of sides to midpoints of the line joining the midpoints of the side. So , hp = ht​.
ratio of area of the parallelogram DEFB and area of the trapezium CAFD is
