In the following questions, you have a brief passage with 5 questions following the passage. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.

The public distribution system, which provides food at low prices, is a subject of vital concern. There is a growing realization that though India has enough food to feed its masses two square meals a day, the monster of starvation and food insecurity continues to haunt the poor in our country. Increasing the purchasing power of the poor through providing productive employment leading to rising income, and thus good standard of living is the ultimate objective of public policy. However, till then, there is a need to provide assured supply of food through a restructured, more efficient and decentralized public distribution system (PDS). Although the PDS is extensive – it is one of the largest such systems in the world it hasn’t reached the rural poor and the remote places. It remains an urban phenomenon, with the majority of the rural poor still out of its reach due to lack of economic and physical access. The poorest in the cities and the migrants are left out, for they generally do not possess ration cards. The allocation of PDS supplies in big cities is larger than in rural areas. In view of such deficiencies in the system, the PDS urgently needs to be streamlined. Also, considering the large foodgrain production combined with food subsidy on one hand and the continuing slow starvation and dismal poverty of rural population on the other, there is a strong case for making PDS target-group oriented. By making PDS taiget-group oriented, not only the poorest and the neediest would be reached without additional cost but we can also reduce the overall costs incurred.

The desert floras shame us with their cheerful adaptations to the seasonal limitations. Their whole duty is to flower and fruit, and they do it hardly, or with tropical luxuriance, as the rain admits. It is recorded in the report of the Death Valley expedition that after a year of abundant rains, on the Colorado desert was found a specimen of Amaranthus ten feet high. A year later the same species in the same place matured in the drought at four inches. Seldom does the desert herb attain the full stature of the type. Extreme aridity and extreme altitude have the same dwarfing effect, so that we find in the high Sierras and in Death Valley related species in miniature that reach a comely growth in mean temperatures.

Very fertile are the desert plants in expedients to prevent evaporation, turning their foliage edgewise toward the sun, growing silky hairs, exuding thick gum. The wind, which has a long sweep, harries and helps them. It rolls up dunes about the stocky stems, encompassing and protective, and above the dunes, which may be, as with the mesquite, three times as high as a man, the blossoming twigs flourish and bear fruit.

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.

1, 2, 2, 4, 3, 8, 7, 10, ?

Solution:

It is a combination of 2 series, one at odd places and other at even places.

1) : 1,2,3,7, 11,12,13,17 (Difference is 1,1,4,1,1,4,...)

2) : 2,4,8,10, 14,16,20 (Difference is 2,4,2,4,2,....)

QUESTION: 104

0, 7, 26, 63, ?

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here the given series is 0, 7, 26, 63, y

as we can see that :

0 = 02 -1

7 = 23 - 1

26 = 33 - 1

63 = 43 - 1

as we can see that all number are equal to cub of consecutive whole numbers minus 1 and hence ,

y = 53 - 1= 124

QUESTION: 105

If you start running from a point towards North and after covering 4 kms. you turn to your left and run 5 kms. and then again turn to your left and run 5 kms. and then turn to left again and run another 6 kms and before finishing you take another left turn and run 1 km., then answer the following question based on this information.

QUESTION: 107

Solution:

QUESTION: 108

Solution:
QUESTION: 109

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here terms in 4th column are equal to terms in 3rd column divided by 5

8 = 40 / 5

12 = 60 / 5

and hence , y = 90 / 5 = 18

QUESTION: 110

Solution:

let the missing term be y

here in every column the 4th term is product of 1st and 2nd term in every column

8 = 2 x 4

64 = 4 x 16

and hence y = 2 x 4 = 8

QUESTION: 130

A man takes 6 km. distance to go around the rectangular area. If the area of the rectangle is 2 sq. km., find the difference between length and breadth.

Solution:

Let length of rectangle be 'l' m.
Let breadth of rectangle be 'b' m.
According to question,
2(l+b)=6
l+b=3. (eq 1)
and lb=2. (eq 2)
Solving above equations we get,
l=2 and b=1.
Hence length and breadth of rectangle are 2 km and 1 km correspondingly.
Difference between length and breadth
=2-1=1 km.
Hence, Option C is correct.

QUESTION: 140

In the given figure 10% are students and parents, and the 10% are students, teachers and parents, 15% are teachers and parents. 35% are students and teachers. How many percentage are only teachers, parents and students.

Solution:

 

Every subset is taken as 100% when it is to be taken as a whole
Then Percentage of only teachers = 100% - (35% + 10% + 15%) = 40%
Similarly,
Percentage of only parents = 100% - (10% + 10% + 15%) = 65%
Percentage of only students = 100% - (35% + 10% + 10%) = 45%.
Hence, the option B is correct.

Solution:

The pattern followed is that in each word, the first letter is replaced by the next alphabet in the English alphabetical series, and rest of the letters are written as it is.

Eg : L (+1 letter) = M and UTE = UTE, thus LUTE <=> MUTE

and G (+1 letter) = H and ATE = ATE, thus GATE <=> HATE

Similarly, B (+1 letter) = C and LUE = LUE, thus BLUE <=> CLUE

XY and XZ are tangents to a circle, ST is another tangent to the circle at the point R on the circle, which intersects XY and XZ at S and T respectively. If XY = 15 cm and TX = 9 cm, then RT is

Solution:

Given : XY = 15 and XT = 9

To find : RT = ?

Solution : Here, XY and XZ are tangents from the same point, so they must be equal.

=> XZ = XY = 15

Also, ZT = XZ - XT = 15-9

=> ZT = 6 cm

Now, ZT and RT are tangents from the same point, so they are also equal.

=> ZT = RT = 6 cm

The value of tan1°tan2°tan3° ……………tan89° is

Solution:

tan1°tan2°tan3° ……………tan88°tan89°

∴tan(90°- θ) = cotθ

=> tan 89° = tan(90°-1) = cot 1°

Similarly, tan 88° = cot 2° and so on till tan 46° = cot 44°

=> (tan1°tan2°tan3°.......tan45°......cot3°cot2°cot1°)

Using, tanθ cotθ = 1 and tan45° = 1

=> 1*1 = 1

In a rhombus ABCD, ∠A = 60° and AB. = 12 cm. Then the diagonal BD is

Solution:

Given : ∠A = 60° and AB = 12 cm

To find : BD = ?

Solution : Since, all the sides of a rhombus are equal, => AB = AD

=> ∠ABD = ∠ADB

Now, in ΔABD

=> ∠ABD + ∠ADB + ∠A = 180°

=> 2∠ABD = 120°

=> ∠ABD = ∠ADB = ∠A = 60°

=> ABD is equilateral triangle.

=> AB = AD = BD = 12 cm

In the following questions, the graph shows the demand and production of different companies. Study the graph and answer the questions.

Q. What is the difference between the average demand and the average production of the companies (in lakh tonnes)? [Approximately]

Solution:

Total demand = 2100 + 3150 + 2600 + 5000 + 2800 + 3300 = 18950

Total supply = 1450 + 3650 + 3100 + 4200 + 3700 + 4500 = 20600

Difference in total demand and supply = 1650

Average difference = 1650/6 = 275

Hence, option C is the right answer.

QUESTION: 168

A and B entered into a partnership investing Rs 16000 and Rs. 12000 respectively. After 3 months A withdrew Rs. 5000 while B invested Rs. 5000 more. After 3 more months C joins the business with a capital of Rs 21000. The share of B exceeds that of C, out of a total profit of Rs. 26400 after one year by

Solution:

Total amount invested by A over the year(in '000s) = (16*3) + (11*9) = 147

Total amount invested by B = (12*3) + (17*9) = 189

Total amount invested by C = 21*6 = 126

Ratio of the amounts invested by A : B : C = 147 : 189 : 126

=> A : B : C = 7 : 9 : 6

Total profit = 26400
