QUESTION: 8

One of the warmest winters on record has put consumers in the mood to spend money. Spending is to be the strongest in thirteen years. During the month of February, sales of existing single family homes hit an annual record rate of 4.75 million. This paragraph best supports the statement that:

Solution:

This is clearly the best answer because the paragraph directly states that warm weather affects consumers inclination to spend. It furthers states that the sales of single-family homes was at an all-time high. There is no support for choice a or c. Choice b is wrong because even though there were high sales for a particular February, this does not mean that sales are not higher in other months. Choice d presents a misleading figure of 4 million. The paragraph states that the record of 4.75 million was at an annual, not a monthly, rate.

QUESTION: 9

The age of father is 4 times more than the age of his son Amit. After 8 years, he would be 3 times older than Amit. After further 8 years, how many times will he be older than Amit?

Solution:

Let Amit’s age be n years
Age of his father = (4n+n) = 5n years
After 8 years:
Amit’s age = n+8
Father’s age =
3(n+8) = 5n+8
3n+24 = 5n+8
16 = 2n
n = 8 years
After further 8 years:
Amit’s age = 24 years
Father’s age = 5n+16 = 56 years
So father is 2.33 times older than Amit

QUESTION: 10

Pipe A, B and C are kept open and fill a tank in t minutes. Pipe A is kept open throughout, pipe B is kept open for the first 10 minutes and then closed. Two minutes after pipe B is closed, pipe C is opened and is kept open till the tank is full. Each pipe fills an equal share of the tank. Furthermore, it is known that if pipe A and B are kept open continuously, the tank would be filled completely in t minutes. How long will C alone take to fill the tank?

Solution:

A and B together can fill the tank completely in t minutes. A alone can fill it in 3t minutes.
A and B together can fill 1/t of the tank in a minute. A alone can fill 1/3t of the tank in a minute. So, in a minute, B can fill 1/t - 1/3t = 2/3t. Or, B takes 3t/2 minutes to fill an entire tank.
To fill one-third the tank, B will take t/2 minutes. B is kept open for t - 10 minutes.
t/2 = t - 10, t = 20 minutes.
A takes 60 minutes to fill the entire tank, B takes 30 minutes to fill the entire tank. A is kept open for all 20 minutes. B is kept open for 10 minutes.
C, which is kept open for 8 minutes also fills one-third the tank. Or, C alone can fill the tank in 24 minutes.

QUESTION: 13

If two concurrent forces A and B acting on a point are 200 N and 300 N. What is the magnitude of resultant force, if it makes an angle of 50o with each force?

Solution:

θ = 50°

force A = 200 N

force B = 300 N

Formula: Resultant force = √A2 + B2 + 2 AB cos 50o

To perform optimal test, the (infinitesimally value) should be introduced at:

Solution:

Note: Number of basic cell = m + n - 1 (Non-degenerate problem)
Number of basic cell < m + n - 1 (Degenerate problem) 6 < 3 + 5 - 1
(So, it is degenerate problem)
To obtain optimal solution, we need to convert the degenerate problem into nondegenerate
problem. So, we need to allocate E, to the least cost cell which shouldn’t form
a closed loop.
