QUESTION: 1

Choose the most approximate word from the options given below to complete the following sentence.

If I had known that you were coming, I _______ you at the airport

Solution:

The sentence talks about a past incident and a condition has been mentioned. Thus option 2 fits here correctly. 'Would have' is the correct tense to be used here. Option 1 is illogical. 'Would' must be used here and not 'will' as it is in the past tense. Past perfect tense is incorrect here.

QUESTION: 2

Choose the most approximate word from the options given below to complete the following sentence.

I believe in the _____ of positive thinking thus always recommend these books to my clients.

Solution:

The word that fits here is a noun thus options 3 and 4 are eliminated. The form should be singular as for abstract nouns we do not use the plural form. Option 1 is thus the correct answer.

The word powerful is an adjective and 'empowering' is a verb.

QUESTION: 3

Consider a circle of radius r. Fit the largest possible square inside it and the largest possible circle inside the square. What is the radius of the innermost circle?

Solution:

The radius of outer circle = r

∴ Diagonal of square = 2r

 

Side of square (a)=√2r

QUESTION: 4

A bird files along the three sides of a field in the shape of an equilateral triangle at speeds of 3, 6, 8 km/hr respectively. The average speed of the bird is

Solution:

Average speed = Total distance/Total time

QUESTION: 5

Choose the most appropriate words from the options given below to fill in the blanks.

She was ______ to travel abroad and _____ in the field of commerce as per her wishes.

Solution:

The sentence mentions a person doing something as per her wishes thus the first word must be a positive reaction. 'Restive' which means 'restless' and 'jinxed' which means 'cursed' are incorrect here. Between options 1 and 3,the word 'elated' which means 'too happy' and the word 'venture' which means 'undertake a risky or daring journey or course of action' fit here correctly. The word 'cease' means 'stop' and does not convey a proper meaning. Thus option 3 is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 6

In a 1600 m race around a circular track of length 400 m, the faster runner and the slowest runner meet at the end of the sixth minute, for the first time after the start of the race. All the runners maintain uniform speed throughout the race. If the faster runner runs at twice the speed of the slowest runner. Find the time taken by the faster runner to finish the race

Solution:

As, the faster runner is twice as fast as the slowest runner, the faster runner would have complete two rounds by the time the slowest runner completes one round.

Their first meeting takes place after the fastest runner takes 6 min to complete two rounds and the slowest runner completes one round.

Time taken to complete one round by fastest runner = 6/2 = 3 minutes

Rounds needed to complete the race = 1600/400 = 4

Time taken to complete the race = 4 × 3 = 12 min

QUESTION: 7

Select the pair that best expresses a relationship similar to that expressed in the pair:

Horse: Foal

Solution:

The young one of a horse is called a foal. Similarly, the young one of a goose is known as gosling. Thus, option 2 contains the pair that best expresses a relationship similar to that expressed in the given pair. In all the other pairs, the first word expresses the male form of the latter.

QUESTION: 8

Juvenile delinquency is also termed as Teenage Crime. Basically, juvenile delinquency refers to the crimes committed by minors. These crimes are committed by teenagers without any prior knowledge of how it affects the society. These kind of crimes are committed when children do not know much about outside world.

Which of the following Inferences is correct with respect to above passage?

Solution:

Since teenagers here have tender age and commit crimes unknown to its consequences, clearly they should not be treated as any criminal. They need to be taught so that they can make difference between right and wrong and do not commit these crimes in future. Hence inference in option 1 is correct.

QUESTION: 9

If n and y are positive integers and 450 y = n³, which of the following must be an integer? 

Solution:

450 y = n³ implies that 450 y is the cube of an integer. 

When we prime-factorize the cube of an integer, we get 3 (or a multiple of 3) of every prime factor.

8 is the cube of an integer because 8 = 2³ = 2*2*2.

Thus, when we prime-factorize 450 y, we need to get at least 3 of every prime factor. 

Here's the prime factorization of 450 y:

450 y = 2 * 3² * 5² * y 

Since 450 provides only one 2, two 3's, and two 5's, and we need at least 3 of every prime factor, the missing prime factors must be provided by y. Thus, y must provide at at least two more 2's, one more 3, and one more 5. 

Smallest possible case: 

y = 2² * 3 * 5
