The smallest angle of a triangle is equal to two thirds of the smallest angle of a quadrilateral. The ratio between the angles of the quadrilateral is 3: 4: 5: 6. The largest angle of the triangle is twice its smallest angle. What is the sum, in degrees, of the second largest angle of the triangle and the largest angle of the quadrilateral?
So, 3x + 4x + 5x + 6x = 360
x = 20
Smallest angle of quadrilateral = 3 × 20 = 60 °
Smallest angle of triangle = 2/3 ×60^{∘ }= 40∘
Largest angle of triangle = 2 × 40 ° = 60 °
Three angles of triangle are 40 °, 60 °, 80 °
Largest angle of quadrilateral is 120 °
Sum (2nd largest angle of triangle + largest angle of quadrilateral)
= 60 ° + 120 ° = 180 °.
If x : y = 3 : 2, then the ratio 2x^{2 }+ 3y^{2} : 3x^{2}  2y^{2} is equal to

P and Q can do a project in 25 and 50 days respectively. In how many days can they complete 18% of the project if they work together?
According to the question
P and Q can do a project in 25 and 50 days respectively.
Let us assume total unit of work available is 50 (LCM of 25 & 50)
And, P does 2 unit of work daily to get it completed in 25 days
Likewise, Q does 1 unit of work daily.
Therefore, total work done by them in 1 day=3 unit
Now, no. of days requires to complete 18% of the project if they work together
⇒ 18% of 50) / 3
⇒ 9/3=3 days
Hence the correct answer is option B

If 2x  3y = 24 and 3x + 4y = 2, find the value of x  y?
2x−3y = 24−−x−x−z−(1)
3x+4y = 2−x−z−z−(2)
If we multiply (1) by 4 and (2) by 3, we get 8x−12y = 96−−x−y−(3)
9x+12y = 6−x−−(4)
Now adding equation (3) and (4), we get 17x = 102
x = 102÷17
x = 6
On substituting x=6 in (1), we get y as:
12−3y = 24
−3y = 12
y = −4
Since values of x and y are known, so finding value of x−y will result in:
x−y = 6−(−4) = 6+4 = 10
x−y = 10, so correct option is ©

Which of the following statements is incorrect?
A horizontal jet of water with its cross–sectional area of 0.0028 m2 hits a fixed vertical plate with a velocity of 5 m/s. After impact the jet splits symmetrically in a plane parallel to the plane of the plate. The force of impact (in N) of the jet on the plate is
the velocity in x direction becomes zero after impact so using impulse momentum theorem
F = ρ_{0}Q_{1}V_{1 }− ρ_{ω}Q_{2}V_{2 }= ρ_{ω}Q(V_{1}−0)
Q = AV = 0.0028 × 5 = 0.014 ρ_{ω} = 1000kg/m^{3}
So ForceF = 1000 × 0.014 × (5−0)

An ice cream factory has a daily discharge of the waste water at the average rate of 2400 m^{3}/day. The waste water coming out of the factory was tested at 2% dilution and following results were obtained:
DO of aerated water = 5mg/l
DO of diluted sample = 0.5 mg/l
DO of diluted sample after 5 days = 1.4 mg/l
Deoxygenation constant = 0.1 day^{1}
The ultimate BOD of the sample is
4.911.4/2 × 100 = 175.5 mg/Id sample,
