QUESTION: 56

In a parallelogram PQRS, angle P is four times of angle Q, then the measure of angle R is

Solution:

Sum of adjacent angles of a parallelogram = 180°

Let angle Q be x.

x + 4x = 180°

5x = 180°

x = 36°

Angle Q + Angle R = 180° ( Adjacent angles)

=> Angle R = 180° - 36°

Angle R = 144°.

Option A is the right answer.

QUESTION: 57

The sum of four numbers is 48. When 5 and 1 are added to the first two; and 3 and 7 are subtracted from the 3rd and 4th, all the four numbers will be equal. The numbers are

Solution:

Let the numbers be a,b,c,d

=> a+b+c+d = 48 --------Eqn(1)

When 5 & 1 are added to first two,

=> (a+5) and (b+1)

and when 3 & 7 are subtracted from last two, => (c-3) and (d-7)

According to question :

=> a+5 = b+1 = c-3 = d-7 = k (let)

Now, in eqn(1)

(a+5) + (b+1) + (c-3) + (d-7) = 48 + (5+1-3-7)

=> k+k+k+k = 48-4

=> k = 11

=> Numbers are : a = k-5 = 11-5 = 6

Similarly, b = 10

c = 14

d = 18

QUESTION: 58

The least number that should be added to 2055, so that the sum is exactly divisible by 27 is

Solution:

The shopkeeper bought 30 kg rice at Rs. 70/kg

C.P. = 70*30 = Rs. 2100

Similarly, C.P. for second type of rice = 70.75*20 = Rs. 1415

=> Total C.P. = 2100+1415 = Rs. 3515

He sold these two brands at Rs. 80.50/kg

=> Total S.P. = 80.50*50 = Rs. 4025

Profit = 4025-3515 = Rs. 510

Solution:

let the ages of A and B 18 years ago be 8x and 13x

So there present ages will be

A= 8x +18

B = 13x + 18

It is given that

x = 4

So present age of A = 8x + 18 = 32 +18 = 50 years

QUESTION: 77

The length of the portion of the straight line 3x + 4y = 12 intercepted between the axes is

Solution:

Equation : 3x + 4y = 12

To find x -intercept, put y =0

=> 3x + 0 = 12

=> x = 4

Similarly to find y -intercept, we need to put x = 0

=> 0 + 4y = 12

=> y = 3

Thus, the line passes through (4,0) in x-axis and (0,3) in y-axis

QUESTION: 82

If x = 332, y = 332, z = 332, then the value of x^{3} + y^{3} + z^{3} - 3xyz is

Solution:

when x = y = z= 332 , then (x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} - xy - yz - xz) = 0

and hence x^{3} + y^{3} + z^{3} - 3xyz = 0 as x^{3} + y^{3} + z^{3} - 3xyz = (x+y+z) (x^{2} + y^{2} + z^{2} - xy - yz - xz)

and hence the answer for this question is = 0

Study the following bar diagram carefully and answer the following questions.

The number of the production of electronic items (TVs and LCDs) in a factory during the period from 2009 to 2013.

**Q. The total number of products of electronic items is maximum in the year**

Solution:

Total no. of electronic items in :

2009 = 6000 + 7000 = 13000

2010 = 9000 + 9400 = 18400

2011 = 13000 + 9000 = 22000 [MAX]

2012 = 11000 + 10000 = 21000

2013 = 8000 + 12000 = 20000

=> Total production is maximum in **2011**

QUESTION: 95

QUESTION: 96

Study the following bar diagram carefully and answer the following questions.

The number of the production of electronic items (TVs and LCDs) in a factory during the period from 2009 to 2013.

**Q. The difference between averages of production of TVs and LCDs from 2009 to 2012 is**

Solution:

Total no. of TV's produced from 2009 to 2012 = 6000 + 9000 + 13000 + 11000

=> 39,000

Average production of TV's over these four years = 39000/4 = 9750

Total no. of LCD's produced from 2009 to 2012 = 7000 + 9400 + 9000 + 1000 = 35,400

Average production of LCD's over these four years = 35400/4 = 8850

=> Required Difference = 9750 - 8850 = 900

QUESTION: 97

No. of TV's produced in 2009 = 6000

No. of TV's produced in 2010 = 9000

=> Required ratio = 6000/9000 = 2 : 3

QUESTION: 98

The following pie-chart shows the sources of funds (InRs. crores) to be collected by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for its Phase II projects. Study the pie-chart and answer the following Three questions

**Q.If the toll is to be collected through an outsourced agency by allowing a maximum 10% commission, how much amount should be permitted to be collected by the outsourced agency, so that the project is supported with Rs. 4,910 crores ?**

Solution:

Amount required to support the project = 4910 crore

Maximum compensation = 10%

QUESTION: 117

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

3, 5, 9, 17, ?

Solution:

here the given pattern is 3, 5, 9, 17, ?

let the missing term be y

we can see that

5 - 3 = 2^{1}

9 -5 = 4 = 2^{2}

17 - 9 = 8 = 2^{3}

as we can see that every time the difference between consecutive terms is getting increased by power of 2

and hence , y - 17 = 2^{4} = 16

y = 33

QUESTION: 118

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

let the missing term be y

6 - 4 = 2

10 - 6 = 4

16 - 10 = 6

24 - 16 = 8

as we can see that every time the difference is getting increased by 2 so

y - 24 = 10

y = 34

In the following five questions, select the missing number from the given responses.

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here in 1st figure , the pattern is (3 x 2 x 4) = 24

in 2nd figure , (2 x -1 x -2) = 4

in 3rd figure also the same thing will be followed ,

y = (6 x 5 x 0) = 0

QUESTION: 131

y = 18

QUESTION: 134

In the following five questions, select the missing number from the given responses

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here we can see that in 1st column

9 + 4 = 13

13 - 3 = 10

10 + 4 = 14

14 - 3 = 11

now in 2nd column

11 + 4 = 15

15 - 3 = 12

12 + 4 = 16

16 - 3 = 13

hence the same thing will be followed in column 3 and so ,

13 + 4 = 17

17 - 3 = 14

14 + 4 = 18

18 - 3 = 15 and hence y = 15
