EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 29

The average of a batsman after 25 innings was 56 runs per innings. If after the 26th inning his average increased by 2 runs, then what was his score in the 26th inning? 

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 29

Normal process:
Runs in 26th inning = Runs total after 26 innings – Runs total after 25 innings
= 26 X 58 – 25 X 56

For Easy calculation use:

= (56 + 2) X 26 – 56 X 25 )
= 2 X 26 + (56 X 26 – 56 X 25)
= 52 + 56 = 108

Since the average increases by 2 runs per innings, it is equivalent to 2 runs being added to each score in the first 25 innings. Now, since these runs can only be added by the runs scored in the 26th inning, the score in the 26th inning must be 25 X 2 = 50 runs higher than the average after 26 innings (i.e. new average = 58).

Hence, runs scored in 26th inning:
= New Average + Old innings X Change in average

= 58 + 25 X 2
= 108 

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 30

There are 7 members in a family whose average age is 25 years. Ram who is 12 years old is the second youngest in the family. Find the average age of the family in years just before Ram was born?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 30

In order to find the average age of the family before Ram was born, we need to know the age of the youngest member of the family. 
Since, we do not know the age of the youngest member, we can not calculate the total age of the family before Ram was born.
Hence, we can not calculate the answer with the given conditions.

Thus, D is the right choice.

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 31

Two tailors X and Y are paid a total of Rs. 550 per week by their employer. If X is paid 120 percent of the sum paid to Y, how much is Y paid per week?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 31

X+ y=Rs. 550
x = 120% of y
120% * y+ y =550
120/100*y+y = 550
6/5y+y =550
6y+5y/5 = 550
11/5y = 550
11y = 550*5
y = 250

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 32

Gauri went to the stationers and bought things worth Rs. 25, out of which 30 paise went on sales tax on taxable purchases. If the tax rate was 6%, then what was the cost of the tax free items?

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 33

In a stream, Q lies in between P and R such that it is equidistant from both P and R. A boat can go from P to Q and back in 6 hours 30 minutes while it goes from P to R in 9 hours. How long would it take to go from R to P?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 33

Since P to R is double the distance of P to Q,
Therefore, it is evident that the time taken from P to R and back would be double the time taken from P to Q and back (i.e. double of 6.5 hours = 13 hours).

Since going from P to R takes 9 hours, coming back from R to P would take 4 hours i.e. 139 = 4

So Option A is correct

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 34

If A and B together can complete a piece of work in 15 days and B alone in 20 days, in how many days can A alone complete the work?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 34

A and B complete a work in = 15 days
⇒ One day's work of (A + B) = 1/ 15

B complete the work in = 20 days
⇒ One day's work of B = 1/20

⇒ A's one day's work = 1/15 − 1/20 = (4−3)/6 = 1/60

Thus, A can complete the work in = 60 days.

So Option A is correct

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 35

In covering a distance of 30 km, Arun takes 2 hours more than Anil. If Arun doubles his speed, then he would take 1 hour less than Anil. What is Arun's speed?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 35

Let Anil takes x hrs.
⇒ Arun takes x+2

If Arun doubles the speed, he will take x-1 hrs
⇒ He needs 3 hours less.
∵ Double speed means half time.
∴ Half of the time required by Arun to cover 30 km = 3 hours

⇒ Time required by Arun to cover 30 km = 6 hour
Thus, Arun's speed = 30/6 = 5 km/h

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 36

A car travels first 160 km at 64 km/hr and the next 160 km at 80 km/hr. What is the average speed for the first 320 km of the tour?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 36

Total time taken = (160/64) + (160/80) = 9/2 hrs
∴ Average speed = 320 x (2/9) = 71.11 km/hr.

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 37

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 37

P : Q : R
= (25 × 1 + 35 × 2) : (35 × 2 : 25 × 1) : (30 × 3)
= 95 : 95 : 90
= 19 : 19: 18

EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 38

A, B, C subscribe Rs. 50,000 for a business. A subscribes Rs. 4000 more than B and B Rs. 5000 more than C. Out of a total profit of Rs. 35,000, A receives

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 38

Let C = x.
Then, B = x + 5000 and A = x + 5000 + 4000 = x + 9000
So, x + x + 5000 + x + 9000 = 50000
⇒ 3x = 36000
⇒ x = 12000
A : B : C = 21000 : 17000 : 12000 = 21 : 17 : 12
So A's Share

Arun took a loan of Rs. 1400 with simple interest for as many years as the rate of interest. If he paid Rs.686 as interest at the end of the loan period, what was the rate of interest?

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 46

Simple Interest (SI) = P N R / 100

P is the Principal loan amount = Rs.1400

N is the number of years of deposit

R is the rate of interest

It is given that the loan period is as many years as the rate of interest.

So, N = R

Interest at the end of the loan period (SI ) = Rs.686

So,

686 = 1400 * R * R /100

R2 = 686*100 /1400

R2 = 49

R = 7%

A. The Mandate of Heaven indicated divine approval of a king’s right to rule.

B. In other words, the Mandate of Heaven gave divine ruling authority to kings that lived a moral life, administered justice, and protected the welfare of his people.

C. Whereas Medieval Europeans legitimized their ruling authority by the divine right of kings, Confucian societies used a similar concept called the Mandate of Heaven.

D. However, it differed from the divine right of kings in that Heaven’s endorsement depends upon the virtuous conduct of the ruler.

Detailed Solution for EMRS Accountant Mock Test - 5 - Question 57

We have two possible starting sentences for the paragraph- A and C.

However, we see that C introduces the phrase “Mandate of Heaven"?, whereas A tells us what it is about. So A follows C and possibly comes immediately after C.

Sentence B starts with “in other words"?. So which sentence is it paraphrasing? Not A, this sentence only declares that the Mandate of Heaven indicated divine approval of a king’s right to rule. Sentence B paraphrases sentence D, which talks of the right to rule depending on the virtuous conduct of the ruler. So B follows D.

The correct sentence order is hence CADB.

The question is " Arrange the sentences in the correct order "
The order is CADB
