 28 Aug 2009 = Thursday + 1

= Friday

No. of odd days Aug to Nov

Five bells begin to toll together and toll respectively at intervals of 6, 5, 7, 10 and 12 seconds. How many times will they toll together in one hour excluding the one hour excluding the one at the start?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Logical Reasoning - 5 - Question 30

ANS.B

EXP. L.C.M. of 6, 5, 7, 10 and 12 is 420.
So, the bells will toll together after every 420 seconds i.e. 7 minutes.
Now, 7 x 8 = 56 and 7 x 9 = 63.

Thus, in 1 hour (or 60 minutes), the bells will toll together 8 times, excluding the one at the start.

Practice Test: Logical Reasoning - 5 - Question 31

 At the fair I bought 6 erasers and 2 pens for Rs. 15. If I could have bought 4 more erasers for Rs. 14 than pens for Rs. 9, the price of a pen was

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Logical Reasoning - 5 - Question 31

ANS. C

EXP. Let the price of an eraser be Rs. x and that of a pen be Rs. y. Then,

6x + 2y = 15 ⇔      …(i)

   (using (i))

⇔84y – 9 (15 – 2y) = 4y (15 – 2y)

⇔ 84y – 135 + 18y = 60y – 8y2

⇔ 8y2 + 42y – 135 = 0

⇔ 8y2 + 60y – 18y – 135 = 0

⇔ 4y (2y + 15) – 9 (2y + 15) = 0

⇔ (2y + 15) (4y - 9) = 0

⇔   y= 9/4                   

⇔ y = 2.25.

Hence, price of a pen = Rs. 2.25.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Logical Reasoning - 5 - Question 33

Clearly, George lies towards the left and while Peter lies towards the right end of the row.   So, when Peter whifts towards George, he shifts 3 places to the left.  Thus, Peter is now 15th from the right end.  But, Peter is 10th from the left end.  ∴ Number of children in the row = (14 + 1 + 9) = 24.
