QUESTION: 5

In each of the following questions, select the missing number from the given responses:

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here , in 1st column ,

16 x 2 = 32

32 x 3 = 96

in 3rd column ,

28 x 2 = 56

56 x 3 = 168

so in 2nd column the same pattern is going to get followed

24 x 2 = 48

48 x 3 = 144

and hence y = 144

QUESTION: 6

In each of the following questions, select the missing number from the given responses:

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here in 1st column we can see that 84 = 7 x 6 x 2

QUESTION: 22

In each of the following questions, a series is given, with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series

0, ? , 8 27, 64, 125

Solution:

here the given pattern is 0, ? , 8 27, 64, 125

let the missing term be y

as we can see that every pateern is a cube of consecutive whole number starting from 0

0 = 0^{3}

8 = 2^{3}

64 = 4^{3}

125 = 5^{3}

so the missing term is , y = 1^{3} = 1

QUESTION: 23

In each of the following questions, a series is given, with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series

BMX, DNW, FOV, ? .

Solution:

here the given series is BMX, DNW, FOV, ?

as we can see that 1st alphabet of every term in series is alternative element starting from B

2nd alphabet if every term series is consecutive alphabets starting from M and 3rd alphabet in every term in the series is retracing back every consecutive alphabet starting from X

and hence the missing pattern is HPU

QUESTION: 24

In each of the following questions, a series is given, with one term missing. Choose the correct alternative from the given ones that will complete the series

655, 637, 622, 610, 601, ?

Solution:

Let the missing number be x.

The difference between every two consecutive numbers is forming a pattern.

655-637 = 18

637-622 = 15

622-610 = 12

610-601 = 9

As the difference is getting reduced by 3 every time . So 601-x = 6 which implies that the missing number ,x =595

QUESTION: 25

1, 5, 25, 125, ? , ? , ?

Solution:

we have been give a series as 1, 5, 25, 125, ? , ? , ?

here we can see that every term is a power of 5

1 = 5^{0}

5 = 5^{1}

25 = 5^{2}

125 = 5^{3}

so the next term will also be power of 5 and the terms are 5^{4}, 5^{5} , 5^{6} i,e 625, 3125, 15625

Distance between 1st and 25th tree = 24x.

According to question, 24x=30

x=1.25

Distance between 3rd and 15th tree=12x.

=12×1.25.

=15 m.

Hence, Option B is correct.

QUESTION: 35

Statement is given followed by two inferences I and II. You have to consider the statement to be true even if it seems to be at variance from commonly known facts. You have to decide which of the given inferences, if any. follow from the given statement.

**Statement : **

“Electric supply in Anand Colony will be cut tomorrow after 12 O’clock for three hours because repairing work will be carried out.”

**Inferences :**

I. Residents of Anand Colony may use their electrical appliances before 12 O’clock tomorrow.

QUESTION: 36

Anand travels 10 kms from his home to the east to reach his school. Then he travels 5 kms to the south to reach his father’s shop, after school. He then travels 10 kms to the west to help his uncle. How far and in which direction is he from his home ?

Solution:

Let Anand started from point A and travelled east for 10 km to reach his school at B, then travelled south for 5 km to reach his father's shop at C, finally travelled west for 10 km to stop at point D.

Thus, AD = 5 km

\therefore∴ Anand is 5 km to the south of his home.

QUESTION: 37

Four villages A, B, C and D lie in a straight line. D is 10 kms from B. A is exactly Between D and C and C from B is 2 kms more than it is from D. How far is C from B ?

Solution:

Distance between D and B = 10 km

C from B is 2 km more than it is from D, that means DC = 4 km and CB = 6 km

A is exactly between D and C i.e. AD = 2 km and AC = 2 km

Following figure represents all the above conclusions.

Hence CB = 6 km

A and B are 20 km apart. A can walk at an average speed of 4 km/hour and B at 6 km/ hr. If they start walking towards each other at 7 a.m., when they will meet ?

Solution:

Distance between A & B = 20 km

Since they are walking towards each other, their relative speed will be the sum of their individual speeds

=> relative speed = 6+4 = 10 km/h

=> Time taken to meet each other = 20/10 = 2 hours

=> They will meet at (7+2) = 9.00 a.m.

QUESTION: 110

A policeman starts to chase a thief. When the thief goes 10 steps the policeman moves 8 steps. 5 steps of the policeman is equal to 7 steps of the thief. The ratio of the speeds of the policeman and the thief is

Solution:

5 steps of Policeman = 7 steps of a thief

=> 1 step of Policeman = 7/5 steps of thief

=> 8 Steps of Policeman = 8 x 7/5 steps of thief = 56/5 steps of thief

The ratio of speeds of policeman and thief = ratio of distance covered by policeman and thief in a same time

=> In same time policeman moves 8 steps and thief moves 10 steps

=> 56/5 : 10 (because as we calculated earlier 8 steps of policeman = 56/5 steps of thief)

=> 56 : 50 = 28 : 25

QUESTION: 118

The compound interest on a certain sum of money for 2 years at 5% per annum is 410. The simple interest on the same sum at the same rate and for the same time is

Solution:

we know that :

1. For first year , compound interest and simple interest is same if the principal amount and rate of interest is same in both cases.

2. From 2nd year onwards ,the compound interest is normal interest plus the interest on accumulated amount due to interest untill last cycle.

3. Every year simple interest remains same if Rate of Interest and principal amount remains same .

Let the compound interest for 1st year be be Rs y

For two years ,CI = Rs 410

So for two years , Simple Interest = 200 + 200 = Rs 400

QUESTION: 123

If the measures of the sides of triangle are (x^{2}−1),(x^{2}+1) and 2x cm, then the triangle would be

Solution:

Sides of the triangle are = (x^{2}−1),(x^{2}+1) and 2x

By putting x = 2, we get the sides as 3,4,5 which are the sides of right angled triangle.Thus, we need to check for only right angled triangle

Clearly, longest side here is (x^{2}+1)

=> [(x^{2}−1)^{2}+(2x)^{2}] = (x^{4}+1−2x^{2}+4x^{2})

= (x^{4}+2x^{2}+1)

= (x^{2}+1)^{2}

Thus, these are the sides of a right angled triangle.

=> ∠C < (180 - ∠C)

=> ∠C < 90

Similarly, ∠B < 90 and ∠A < 90

Since, all the angles of the triangle are less than 90, => It is acute angled triangle

A tap drips at a rate of one drop/sec. 600 drops make 100m1. The number of litres wasted in 300 days is

Solution:

Rate at which tap drips = 1 drop/sec

Now, no. of seconds in 1 day = 24*60*60 = 86400 sec

=> In 1 day the tap drips 86400 drops

Thus, in 300 days, water wasted = 14.4*300 = 4320 litres

QUESTION: 135

ABC is a right angled triangle. B being the right angle. Midpoints of AB,BC and AC are respectively B’,C' and A’. Area of ΔA’B’C’ is

Solution:

The triangle obtained by joining the midpoints will also be a right angled triangle.

Since the sides are reduced by a factor of 2, the area will be reduced by a factor of 4. (Since area = 0.5*b*h)

Option C is the right answer.

QUESTION: 136

QUESTION: 144

In in a triangle ABC, AB = AC. BC is extended to D. and ACD = 120°, then A is equal to

Solution:

BC is extended to D. Hence, Angle on line BC = 180 degrees.

We have been given that, Angle ACD = 120 degrees.

=> Angle ACB = 60 degrees. Angle ABC = Angle ACB - since the given triangle is isosceles.

Angle A + Angle B + Angle C = 180 degrees (Angles in a triangle)

=> Angle B = 180 -60 -60

Angle B = 60 degrees.

Option B is the right answer.
