A vendor sells his articles at a certain profit percentage. If he sells his articles at 1/4th of his actual selling price then he incurs a loss of 60%. What is his actual profit percentage?


Let the cost price = 100 Rs.
From the options:
If profit % = 60%
Then SP = 160 Rs.
New SP = 160/4 = 40 Rs.
Percentage loss= (100-40)/100 = 60%
Hence Verified


Direction: Read the following information carefully and answer the questions that follow:
The distribution of car sales of 6 companies has been shown in the pie chart below:

Note: The total number of cars sold is equal to 36000
If the average cost of a Hyundai car is 2 lakh rupees, then how much money is obtained by selling Hyundai cars?


Total number of cars sold = 36000
Out of these 15% were Hyundai cars.
∴ Number of Hyundai cars sold = 15/100 × 36000
∴ Number of Hyundai cars sold = 5400
Money earned from Hyundai cars = 5400 × 2 = 10800 lakh rupees
Hence the correct option is option (B).

Direction: In the given question, one statement with a blank along with four words is given. Two of the given words can fit into the given blank. Five options with various combinations of these words are given. Choose the combination of the words that best fits into the blank.
Comedian Vasu Primlani takes hilarious ______ at the new trend of renaming Indian cities.
a) Jabs
b) Jokes
c) Satires
d) Gags


The meaning of the words as follows:
a. Jab as a noun refers to a quick, sharp blow, especially with the fist.
b. A joke is a thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, especially a story with a funny punchline.
c. Satire is the use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
d. A gag is a joke or an amusing story, especially one forming part of a comedian's act, or in a film.
‘Hilarious satires’ and ‘hilarious jabs’ seems inappropriate and ambiguous. Among all the options, ‘jokes’ and ‘gags’ fit perfectly in the blank. Therefore, option D is the apt answer.

Direction: In given question below there are three statements followed by two conclusions numbered I and II. You have to take the given statements to be true even if they seem to be at variance with commonly known facts. Read all the conclusions and then decide which of the given conclusion logically follows from the given statements disregarding commonly known facts.
All oils are sands 
Some clays are oils
All clays are rocks 


All oils are sands
Some clays are oils
All clays are rocks
Combining all three statements, we get

I. At least some clays are sands ü
II. Some oil is not rock û
Conclusion I
Some clays are oils + All oils are sands = Some clays are sands
Hence, Thus, conclusion I follows.
Conclusion II
Some clays are oils → conversion → some oils are clays + All clays are rocks = Some oils are rock. Hence, conclusion II does not follows.


Direction: In the given question, the 1st part of the sentence is given. The rest of the sentence/passage is split into four parts and named A, B, C and D. These four parts are not given in their proper order. Read the sentence and find out which of the four combinations is correct.
1) According to Indian Express, on Sunday, six men reached South Delhi businessman's house in Malviya Nagar in a Tata Safari car bearing the Haryana government’s sticker fixed on the windscreen.
A) One of the guys first took away all the cell phones of the businessman’s family members alleging that they had come on government duty to investigate a tax evasion charge.
B) The plan could have been successfully executed but one of the family members found their behaviour suspicious.
C) When the family member raised an alarm about the same, about 150 people from the same locality gathered outside the trader's house and the con men were beaten up and interrogated before they were handed over to the police.
D) They “searched” the house, moving from room to room, and collected Rs 20 lakh in cash that they kept in their cars.


The sentence 1 introduced a situation, and the rest of the sentences should be arranged in the order that they happened. Clearly A is the first in sequence as it uses the word 'first' indicating the first step of these six men. The next step is described in D. Now, the twist comes in sentence C as the suspicions rise. People cannot get suspicious of something unless something actually happened. So, we place A first, followed by D and B. This leaves C for the last, which describes the result of those suspicions. Hence, the correct answer is D.

A small project consists following activities. The relevant data about these activities is given below:

Overhead cost per week is 50 Rs. per week. Total cost of the project (in Rs.) if the project duration is reduced by 2 week is


The resulting network is shown in figure.
The critical path is 1-3-4-5 and duration = 18 week and the minimum duration = 12 week
Total cost = 18×50 = 900 Rs.

Activities lie on the critical path control the project duration so we can shorten the duration of these critical activities.
The minimum cost of crashing out of (1-3), (3-4), (4-5) activities = 15 Rs per week
Reduced the activities 3-4 by 1 week then the total cost = 17×50 + 15 = 865 Rs
Now, there are two critical path viz. 1-3-4-5 and 1-4-5 and its project duration = 16 week
Now there are two ways of reducing the duration of project further either reduce the activity duration (1-3) and (1-4) combined (crashing cost = 45 Rs. per week) or (1-4) and (3-4) combined (crashing cost = 40 Rs. per week). The minimum cost of crashing is in 2nd case.
Total cost = 16×50 + 15+ 40 = 855 Rs.

First of all we need to convert this problem into 4 jobs and 2 machines problems.
Min time on machine M1 =min {M1} = 5
Min time on machine M5 = min {M5} = 6
Max time on rest of machines = Max {M2, M3, M4} =6
If min {M1} or min {M5} ≥ Max {M2, M3, M4} then this problem can be converted into 4 jobs into 2 machines (say N1 and N2)
As above condition is satisfied so the new table:
N1 = time (M1 + M2 + M3 + M4) on each jobs
N2 = time (M2 + M3 + M4 + M5) on each jobs

According to Johnson’s rule the job sequence is as follows:

A fit is specified as 30H8/e8, the tolerance value for a nominal diameter of 30 min IT8 is 33 microns and fundamental deviation of shaft is -20 microns. The minimum clearance of the fit (in microns) _________.


Hole: lower limit = basic size = 30 mm
Higher limit = lower limit + tolerance = 30+.033 = 30.033
Shaft: higher limit = basic size – fundamental deviation = 30 - .02 = 29.98
Lower limit = Higher limit - tolerance = 29.98- 0.033 = 29.947
Therefore min clearance = lower limit of hole – higher limit of shaft
= 30 – 29.98
= 20 microns

In VCR system, the refrigeration capacity is 1800 kJ/min & Heat rejected in condenser is 2400 kJ/min. What will be the heat rejection factor is ____ (up to two decimal)



Steam at 40 bar, 500°C flowing at the rate of 1.5 kg/sec expands in an h.p turbine to 2 bar with an is entropic efficiency of 80%. Determine the enthalpy of steam of the exit of high pressure turbine in kW.
At 40 bar, 500°C; V = 0.086 m3/kg, U = 3100 kJ/kg; h = 3445 kJ/kg, s = 7.09 kJ/kg
At 2 bar; vf = 0.001061 m3/kg, vg = 0.886 m3/kg, hf=504.7kJ/kg, hg=2707 kJ/kg,
sf=1.503kJ/kg, sg=7.127kJ/kg


Option (B) is correct

h1 = 3445 kJ/kg
S1 = 7.09 kJ/kg
S1 = S2s=7.09
7.09 = 1.53 + x2s(7.127 –1.53)
∴ x2s = 0.9933
and h2s = 504.7 + 0.993 (hg –hf)
h25 = 504.7 + 0.993 (2201.9) =2692.04

The pressure and temperature at the start of compression of diesel cycle is 1 bar and 15°C. The pressure at the end of expansion is 4bar, the maximum temperature when the compression ratio is 15 and the specific heat at constant pressure is 1.008 kJ/kgK is ____°C


Option (D) is correct


A truss shown below

Calculate force in member CD and its nature


Option (B) is correct


A stone is dropped from a balloon going up with a uniform velocity of 10 m/s. if the balloon was 40 m high when the stone was dropped, the height of balloon from the ground when the stone hits the ground is (take g = 10 m/s2)


The stone was going up with 10 m/s velocity and after that it falls freely under gravity.
Considering vertically downward as +ve and upward –ve.

t2 -2t – 8 = 0
t2 – 4t +2t - 8 = 0
t = -2 (no significance in this problem)
t = 4 s
Distance covered by balloon in 4 s in upward direction
= 10 t = 40 m
Total height of balloon = 40 + 40 = 80 m
