### The average temperature in Delhi for the first four days of the month was reported as 580 . It reported as 600 for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th days. The ratio of the temperatures of 1st and 5th day was 7 : 8. Find the temperature on the first day.

Solution:

E) 560
Explanation: A+B+C+D = 58*4
B+C+D+E = 60*4
Subtract both, E – A = 8 So 8x – 7x = 8, x = 8 So temperature of A(1st day) = 7x = 7*8

QUESTION: 4

For three successive years, the cost of petrol were Rs 20 per litre, Rs 22 per litre and Rs 23.50 per litre respectively. If a man spent an average of Rs 8000 per year on petrol, then he spent what average cost of petrol per litre for the three years?

Solution:

D) Rs 21.7 Explanation: Quantity used in 1st yr = 8000/20 = 400 l, in 2nd yr = 8000/22 = 363.6, in 3rd yr = 340.4 l Total used in 3 yrs = 1104 litres, total money spent in 3 yrs = 3*8000 = 24000 So average rate of 3 yrs = 24000/1104

QUESTION: 6

The average age of the group having 3 members is 84. One more person joins the group and now the average becomes 80. Now a fifth person comes whose age is 3 years more than that of fourth person replaces the first person. After this the average age of the group becomes 79. What is the weight of the first person?

Solution:

A) 75
Explanation: Let the ages of these are A, B, C, D, E So A+B+C = 84*3 = 252 And A+B+C+D = 80*4 = 320 So D = 320-252 = 68, so E = 68+3 = 71 Now B+C+D+E = 79*4 = 316 (A+B+C+D) – (B+C+D+E) = 320- 316
So A-E = 4, so A = 71+4

QUESTION: 7

3 years ago, the average age of A, B, and C was 27 years. Also 5 years ago, the average age of B and C was 20 years. What is the present age of A?
