QUESTION: 1

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

Q. ________ is the key to their happiness; they are satisfied with what they have.

Solution:

The sentence already mentions a trait that they are satisfied with what they have thus it becomes easy for us to choose the correct word. The meanings of the words are:

Contentment → being satisfied with what one has

Ambition → a strong desire to do or achieve something.

Perseverance → persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

Hunger → a feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat.

Thus, contentment is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 2

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

Q. 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: 3

The Headmaster ___________ to speak to you.

Which of the following options is correct to complete the above sentence?

Solution:

The correct tense that fits here is simple present and the subject being singular, the verb should be in the correct form too. Thus 'wants' is the correct answer. The other options are incorrect as:

Is wanting ⇒ it is in present continuous tense which is used to denote an activity which is continuing

Want ⇒ subject is singular thus the verb cannot be in plural form

Was wanting ⇒ it is in past continuous tense which is used to denote an activity which was continuing in the past

Thus option 2 is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 4

QUESTION: 6

A growing world population has caused growing concerns about increasing famine. The population in 2000 was 6 billion. Ten years later the population was 7 billion. There were also more people affected by famines in 2010 than in 2000. Furthermore, in each year from 2000 to 2010, when the world's population increased, so did the number of those affected by famine.

Based on the information given, which of the following is true?

Solution:

The number affected by famine always increases with the population. Therefore, if the population increased in 2005, then the number of those affected by famine also increased.

If there was an increase in 2005, there must have been more people affected in that year than the previous year of 2004.

The available information does not allow us to draw any of the other inferences.

The number of those affected by famine could increase without a corresponding percentage of the population increase.

Neither can we draw inferences about any particular year between 2000 and 2010.

Note:

Option 2 cannot be correct because consider a case where in 2000 the population is 100 , and people affected are 50

in 2001 the population grew to say 200, and people affected is 100

So in Both cases the percentage of people affected is 50% but the number of people affected grew.

QUESTION: 7

A tunnel of length 360 m is to be constructed. As per the plan, the team has to complete the tunnelling within a specified period of time. For the first four days, the tunnelling was done according to the plan. However, it was found that the resources were being underutilized. It was then decided that the rate of tunnelling should be increased and then they started tunnelling 15 m more than their everyday plan. Therefore, a day before the planned date they had tunnelled to a length of 380 m. How many meters of tunnelling was planned for each day?

Solution:

Let, the per day tunnelling plan was ‘x’ meter and the tunnelling of 360 m was to be completed in ‘y’ day.

Therefore, xy = 360----(i)

Now, as per plan tunneling was done for four days and then rate of tunnelling was increased to

(x + 15) for (y - 4) days. One day before the planned date they have tunnelled 380 m.

∴ Number of days when the tunnelling was done at increased rate is

= (y – 4 - 1) = (y - 5) days

According to the statement given the following situations can be inferred

∴ 4x + (y - 5) (x + 15) = 380

⇒ 4x + xy + 15y – 5x – 75 = 380

⇒ 4x + 15y – 5x = 380 + 75 – xy

⇒ 15y – x = 380 + 75 – 360

⇒ 15y – x = 95 ----(ii)

Putting y value from eq (i) in eq (ii) we get

⇒ x^{2} + 95x – 5400 = 0

On solving the above quadratic equation, we get

⇒ x = 40 m

QUESTION: 8

Consider a random walk on an infinite two-dimensional triangular lattice, a part of which is shown in the figure below.

A person can take 1^{st} step in any direction independently

Suppose he moves to A

Now to return to O ( initial point) in 2 steps he can move in 2 directions. Either B or f

Thus probability he will move to either B or F will be

Now to return back to O

he has only 1 option

⇒ to move in BO

Probability he will move in BO direction

Total probability he will return

Solution:

Let PQR is the initial triangle and SQT is the final triangle.

ΔPQR is similar to ΔSQT

∵ ST = 0.75 PR

∴ SQ = 0.75 PQ

And QT = 0.75 QR
