SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 52

What are the average marks obtained by all students in Geography?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 52

Given:

The percentage marks obtained by 6 students in different subjects are given below. The maximum marks for each subject have been indicated in the table.

Concept used:

Average =

Calculation:

According to the question,

Marks of P in geography = 88% of 75 = 0.88 × 75 = 66 marks

Marks of Q in geography = 92% of 75 = 0.92 × 75 = 69 marks

Marks of R in geography = 64% of 75 = 0.64 × 75 = 48 marks

Marks of S in geography = 80% of 75 = 0.80 × 75 = 60 marks

Marks of T in geography = 88% of 75 = 0.88 × 75 = 66 marks

Marks of U in geography = 72% of 75 = 0.72 × 75 = 54 marks

Total marks obtained by students in Geography = 66 + 69 + 48 + 60 + 66 + 54 = 363

Average marks obtained by students in Geography =  = 60.5

∴ The average marks obtained by all students in Geography is 60.5.
Mistake Points

The maximum mark in Geography is 75. Please note that the marks of students are given in the percentage.

For example, P's marks in Geography = 88% of 75 = 66 marks

So the sum of marks of all students in geography = 363

Average = 363/6 = 60.5

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 57

A is the number of even factors of 7392 and B is the number of prime factors of 7392. Which of the following is true?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 57

As we know,

N = ap × bq × cr Where a and b are odd prime factors and c is even prime factor of N.

Number of factors of N = (p + 1) × (q + 1) × (r + 1)

Number of odd factors of N = (p + 1) × (q + 1)

Number of even factors of N = (p + 1) × (q + 1) × r

Number of prime factors = p + q + r

Given,

7392 = 3 × 7 × 11 × 32

⇒ 25 × 3 × 7 × 11

Number of even factors = (1 + 1) × (1 + 1) × (1 + 1) × 5

⇒ 2 × 2 × 2 × 5

⇒ A = 40

Number of prime factors = 5 + 1 + 1 + 1

⇒ B = 8

∴ A = 40 = 5B

SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 61

In the given figure, AB || CD, ∠APQ = 50° and ∠PRD = 127°, find the value of y – x?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Mock Test - 5 - Question 61

Given:

AB || CD

∠APQ = 50°

∠PRD = 127°

∠APQ = ∠x      ---- (Corresponding angle)

∠x = 50°

∠APR = ∠PRD      ---- (Corresponding angle)

⇒ ∠APQ + ∠y = 127°

⇒ 50° + ∠y = 127°

⇒ ∠y = 127° - 50°

⇒ ∠y = 77°

∠y - ∠x = 77° - 50°

= 27°

∴ The value of y – x is 27°.
