QUESTION: 1

Milk & Water in two vessels A and B are in the ratio 4:3 and 2:3 respectively. In what ratio the liquids in both the vessels should be mixed to obtain a new mixture in vessel C, maintaining half milk & half water?

Solution:

Let the volume of vessel A be x. Thus it has 4/7 parts milk. Let the volume of vessel B be y. It has 2/5 parts milk.

Thus 4/7 x + 2/5 y = ½ (x+y).  Solving we get the ratio as 7:5.

QUESTION: 2

A picture was bought at a certain sum, which was equal to the price paid for its frame. Had the frame cost Rs. 100/- less and the picture Rs. 75/- more, the price for the frame would have been only half of that of the picture. What is the price of the frame (in Rs.)?

Solution:

Let the price of frame is x. Then we have the equation x – 100 = ½ (x + 75). Thus x = 275.

QUESTION: 6

Anne travelled 4/7th as many miles on foot as by water and 2/5th as many miles on horse back as by water. If she covered a total of 3036 miles, how many miles did she travel in each manner: water, foot and horseback respectively?

Solution:

Let the distance covered by water is  W.

Then the equation is 4/7 W + 2/5 W + W = 3036.

Hence, W = 1540.

Distance travelled on Foot = 4/7×1540 = 880,

Distance travelled on Horse back 2/5×1540 = 616.

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

QUESTION: 40

DIRECTIONS for the question: Read the passage and answer the question based on it.

Consider Yahoo’s decision in 2005 when it surrendered to Chinese authorities the names of Chinese dissidents who had used Yahoo e-mail, thinking their e-mail addresses would shield their anonymity. One journalist was sentenced to ten years in prison for sharing with foreigners a message his newspaper had received from Chinese authorities, urging it not to overplay the fifteenth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square disturbances. Another whom Yahoo helped Chinese authorities track down was sentenced to eight years, and a third, to four years. It remains unclear how many dissidents are in Chinese prisons because of Yahoo’s cooperation with Chinese authorities.

Yahoo’s decision ignited a temporary firestorm in the United States. Its executives explained that the firm had no choice but to comply with Chinese law if it wanted access to China’s huge and growing market, - and Yahoo said it needed to be in China to move China toward democracy. “I’ve always taken the attitude that you’re better off playing by the government’s rules and getting there,” Yahoo’s chairman told attendees at a Web conference in San Francisco, “Part of our role in any form of media is to get whatever we can into those countries and to show and enable people, slowly, to see the Western way and what our culture is like, and to learn.” Yahoo’s role? The firm was never anointed the vessel of Western culture nor the arbiter of how best to present it to China. That’s not the business of any global company. Indeed, most global companies do everything in their power to avoid the appearance of representing any particular culture, nationality, or ideology – unless such representations help them sell the products.

Both sides of this moralistic debate – reflect a fundamental misunderstanding of the role of the modern corporation in a democracy. Yahoo is not a moral entity, and no one authorized it to undertake any ethical balancing between sending dissidents to prison and exposing the Chinese to American culture and democracy. Yahoo’s executives have only one responsibility under super capitalism – to make money for their shareholders and, along the way, satisfy their consumers. In this instance, one of Yahoo’s key “consumers” was the Chinese government, because it was the gateway to all other Chinese consumers. Unless barred by legislation in the United States, Yahoo will continue to do whatever the Chinese government demands of it because the competitive stakes are too high and the potential profits too great to do otherwise. China is the second-largest Internet market in the world after the United States. As of 2006, more than 100 million Chinese had already logged on. At the rate the internet usage is growing there, within a few years there will be more Chinese on the Internet than Americans.

Google also found itself on the hot seat when it created for the Chinese authorities a censored version of its search engine, removing such incendiary words as “human rights” and “democracy”. I think it’s arrogant for us to walk into a country where we are just beginning operations and tell that country how to run itself,” Eric Schmidt Google’s chief executive, told reporters from foreign news organisations. But Google’s decision to cooperate with China had nothing to do with arrogance or modesty. Like Yahoo’s, it was all about profits, as it had to be. A few days before revelations about the firms complicity with Chinese authorities, Google displayed heroic arrogance toward the United States government, which had demanded from Google information about child pornography searches conducted on Google’s Web site, plus a random sample of a million Web searches. The U.S. government was trying to build a case for reinstating the Child Online Protection Act, which the Supreme Court had ruled to be overly broad in violation of the First Amendment. Google refused to cooperate.

Q. Referring to the last line of the second paragraph, which of the following would represent an instance of a company which would benefit by associating with a particular culture?

Solution:

Refer to the sentence - “Indeed, most global companies do everything in their power to avoid the appearance of representing any particular culture, nationality, or ideology – unless such representations help them sell the products.”   As Sony is a Japanese firm  and owns the Hollywood studio, it will greatly benefit by portraying itself as an entity that is spreading the culture in which the company is located.

Now as L and K both will be adjacent to P, that means at both sides of P the seats are to be kept for these two persons only. Now seat number 2 will be occupied by O or J. Now as seat number 2 is always occupied P cannot take seat number 2 as well as the seats preceding and following seat number 2. Hence even 1 and 3 cannot be taken by him. The only option left is seat number 4. Hence 4th option.

DIRECTIONS for the question: The fitness school marathon attracted 16 entrants this year. Each of the five houses entered a team of three runners and field was made up by the Sports master, Alamkhir, who is the sixteenth runner. The school houses were competing for the trophy. The number of points by each entrant would be equal to his finishing position. The five houses tied for the cup, their totals being equal, although no two competitors tied for the same position. In order to determine the order in which the houses should keep the trophy for 73 days each in a year, they multiplied the finisher’s positions together in each house. The house with the smallest product, Black, would hold the trophy first and so on to the house with the largest product, Blue who held it last. But per chance Green and White houses still tied, and had to be separated by the toss of the coin.

Mr. Alamkhir later noted that no house had two finishers in consecutive positions although Green house would have achieved this had Mr. Alamkhir himself not managed to get between two of the runners in the race.
