Page 1 Question 1 A man spent 5/16 of his age plus two as student, 1/40 plus 1 as a husband, 1/4 as a good politician and 3/40 as a father. And the remaining 6 years as a good grand father. Then the living days of the man is: a) 72 b) 89 c) 80 d) 69 Answer : c)80 Solution : Lets say his age is X. So years spent as student = 5X / 16 + 2, as Husband = X/4 + 1, as Politician = X/4, and as Father = 3X/40. Remaining 6 years (as grandfather) = X - { 5X/16 + 2 + X/4 + 1 + X/4 + 3X/40} i.e., 6 = X - { 5X / 16 + 2 + X / 4 + 1 + X / 4 + 3X / 40} 6 = X - [13X / 16 + 3 + 3X / 40] 6 = X - [71X / 80 + 3] 9X/80 = 9 X = 80. Hence the age of the man is 80 years. Question 2 Page 2 Question 1 A man spent 5/16 of his age plus two as student, 1/40 plus 1 as a husband, 1/4 as a good politician and 3/40 as a father.

Question 3 A father has divided his properties in such a way that one-half of total properties goes to A, two-third of the remaining shared equally to B, C and D and the rest to E, F, G and H such they equally gets Rs.30,000 by their sharing property. Then the amount will D get is: a) Rs.80,000 b) Rs.68,000 c) Rs.24,000 d) Rs.72,000 Answer : a) Rs.80,000 Solution : A's share = 1/2 Then remaining = 1 - 1/2 = 1/2 ...(A) 2/3 of this remaining 1/2 (as in eq A) goes to B,C and D. Total share of B, C and D = 2/3 of 1/2 = 1/3 Therefore, now remaining property = Total share of E,F,G and H = value of (A) - total share of B,C and D = 1/2 - 1/3 = 1/6 Then, E, F, G and H 's individual shares = (1/6) / 4 = 1/6 x 1/4 = 1/24 Given 1/24 = Rs.30,000 Then, total property amount = Rs.24 x 30,000 = Rs.7,20,000 Total share of B, C and D = 1/3 x 7,20,000 Then their individual share amount = (1/3 x 7,20,000) / 3 = Rs.80,000. Hence D's share is Rs.80000. Question 1 In a factory, there are two machines A and B. A machine can produce 1000 watts power in 5 hours and by running both the machines together can produce same watts power in 3 hours. Find the time taken by B machine alone to produce same watts of power. a) 5 hrs b) 7 hrs & 30 mins c) 6 hrs d) 6 hrs & 30 mins Answer : b) 7 hrs & 30 mins Solution : A type machine can produce 1000 watts power in 5 hours. Then A's 1 hour work = 1/5. Both A and B can produce in 3 hours. And 1 hour work of (A + B)'s = 1/3. B's 1 hour work = 1/3 = 1/5 = 2/15. Therefore, machine B can produce 1000 watts power in 15/2 hours. i.e., 15/2 hours = 7.5 hours = 7 hours and 30 minutes. Question 2 There is a building with 4 floors and each floor has equal area. There are three sweepers P, Q and R. P can clean 1 floor in 10 hours, Q can clean 8/5 of the floors in 40 hours and R can clean 4/3 of the floors in 13 hours. Then who will clean all the 4 floors at first? a) R b) R & P c) Q d) Q & P Answer : a) R Solution : P can sweep 1 floor in 10 hours. Then 4 floors will be cleaned by P in = 10 x 4 = 40 hours. Q can sweep 8/5 part in 40 hours. Then 1 floor will be done by Q in 40/(8/5) = 25 hours. And 4 floors will be done by Q in 25 x 4 = 100 hours. R can clean 4/3 part of the floors in 13 hours. Then 1 floor will be cleaned by R in 13/(4/3) = 13 x 3/4 hours. And 4 floors will be done by R in 13 x 3/4 x 4 = 13 x 3 = 39 hours. Thus P, Q and R takes 40, 100 and 39 hours respectively. Hence the sweeper R will complete the work at first. Question 3 A man and his son planned to paint their own house. The man alone can do in 20 days. He paints for 4 days and then his son completed in 8 days. Find how many days will they take working together? a) 12 days b) 11 days c) 7 days d) 8 days Answer : c) 7 days Solution : Man's 1 day work = 1/20 Then 4 days work = 4/20 = 1/5 Remaining work = 1 - 1/5 = 4/5 Now, 4/5 work is done by the son in 8 days. Then, whole work will be done by him in (8 x 5/4) days = 10Read More
