3. If the co-ordinates of orthocentre and the centroid of a triangle ABC are (—5, 7) and (5, 5), then the circumcentre of the triangle ABC is :
(A) (25,1)
(B) (10, 4)
(C) (-5,2)
(D) (0,6)

Ans. (B)
Solution:
Centroid divides orthocenter and circumcenter in the ratio of 2:1
The co-ordinates of orthocentre and the centroid of a triangle ABC are (-5, 7) and (5, 5)
Let the co-ordinate of circumcenter be (x,y)

x =10 and y = 4
Hence the circumcenter = (10, 4)

4. Consider a cuboidal underground tunnel of length 500 m whose cross-section is given in the figure. If 1m3 of concrete costs 1000 rupees, find the amount of money needed to build the Tunnel.

(A) 8(4 - π)106 rupees
(B) 64(4 - π)106 rupees
(C) 16(4 - π)10rupees
(D) 32(4 - π)10rupees
Ans. (C)
Solution:
Area of the tunnel to be filled with concrete = 16*8 - π (32)
Length of the length along which the tunnel has to be filled with concrete = 500m
Volume = 16*8 - π (32)*500
= 32(4 - π)*500
Cost of concrete per 1m3 = 1000
Cost of 32(4 - π)*500 = 32(4 - π)*500*1000
= 16(4 - π) * 106
C is the correct answer.

He has been offered a job which would pay him ₹ 80,000 per month for first three years and ₹ 1,20,000 per month for the next three years, and ₹ 1,50,000 per month for the remaining four years. He has also been offered an MBA at a prestigious place and he is considering whether to accept the job or go for the MBA. The first year tuition fee for the MBA program is ₹ 16,00,000 and the second year tuition fee for the MBA program is ₹ 20,00,000. After MBA, he'll get a salary of ₹ 2,00,000 per month for the first four years and then ₹ 2,50,000 per month for the remaining four years. What will be the approximate percentage gain for Joseph in opting for the MBA instead of the job in the 10 years horizon considering no discounting of money?
(A) 23%
(B) 25%
(C) 27%
(D) 29%

Ans. (B)
Solution:
The sum accrued by Joseph if he had taken the job = (80000*3+120000*3+150000*4)*12
=144*105
If Joseph has taken the MBA program, tuition fee for the program = 1600000+2000000
Sum accrued post MBA = 200000*12*4+250000*12*4=21600000
Net amount = 21600000-3600000 = 180*105
Net gain if Joseph had taken MBA over job 10 years down the lane= 36*105
Percentage of gain

= 25%

If Saif makes a profit of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes up by 10% and if he suffers a loss of ₹100, his satisfaction level goes down by 10%. If Amir makes profit of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes up by 5% and if he suffers a loss of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes down by 15%. Currently, Nawab’s satisfaction level is 24 and the satisfaction level of Saif is the same as the satisfaction level of Amir. If Saif makes a profit of 100 and Amir suffers a loss of ₹ 100, what is the approximate percentage change in Nawab’s satisfaction level?
(A) 1.25%
(B) 1.33%
(C) 1.5%
(D) 1.66%
Ans. (D)
Solution:
Nawab’s satisfaction/ utility level is given by adding twice of the satisfaction level of Saif with the satisfaction level of Amir.
Saif makes a profit of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes up by 10% and if he suffers a loss of ₹100, his satisfaction level goes down by 10%.
Amir makes profit of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes up by 5% and if he suffers a loss of ₹ 100, his satisfaction level goes down by 15%.
Nawab’s satisfaction level is 24 and the satisfaction level of Saif is the same as the satisfaction level of Amir
Let x be the satisfaction level of Saif
24 = 3x
x = 8
If Saif makes a profit of 100 and Amir suffers a loss of ₹ 100, the satisfaction level of Saif and Amir goes up by 10% and goes down by 15% respectively.
The satisfaction of Saif and Amir = 8.8 and 6.8
Nawab's new satisfaction/ utility level = 2*8.8+6.8 = 24.4

(C)
(D)
Ans. (A)
Solution:
Let 'a' and 'b' be the heights of the two poles
X be the initial position of the man and the angles of elevation be 60º and 45º
Distance between pole 1 and X = a/√3 and distance between pole 2 and X = b
Let Y be the position of the man after walking sometime towards the other pole =
Distance between Y and pole 1 = a/√3 and distance between the pole 2 and Y =  b/√3
Since the distance between the poles will remain the same

13.  An E-rickshaw owner makes 24 trips a month with 4 passengers per trip. If his interest cost for purchase of E-rickshaw is ₹ 120/month, he earns 15 percent profit a month (Profit is the difference between revenue and cost). What will be the approximate percentage profit for the same month if the owner undertakes 20 trips a month with 5 passengers and his interest cost is reduced by 10 percent for the month?
Assume:

(a) Total cost to be proportional to the interest cost.
(b) Revenue per passenger is the same in both cases.

(A) 33.33
(B) 66.67
(C) 72
(D) 100
Ans. A
Solution:
Consider the revenue per passenger = P
⇒ Total revenue = 24*4P = 96P
Since the total cost is proportional to interest, it can be assumed as 120*K
Total cost*(1+Profit/100) = Revenue
⇒ 120K(1+15/100) = 96P ..........(1)
New Revenue = 20*5P = 120*(0.9)K*(1+Profit/100) ..........(2)
Dividing (2) by (1),
25/24 = (0.9/1.15)(1+Profit/100)
Profit/100 = (25*23)/(18*24) - 1 = 1.33-1
⇒ Profit = 33%, Option A is the answer.

The sum ofall the real roots of the above equationis :
(A) 2
(B) 3
(C) 8
(D) 10
Ans. (D)
Solution:
Let's consider x-5 as 'p'
Case 1: p ≥ 0
| x − 5 |2 +5 | x − 5 | −24 = 0
p2 + 5p − 24 = 0
p2 + 8p − 3p − 24 = 0
p (p + 8) − 3 (p + 8) = 0
(p + 8) (p − 3) = 0
p = -8 and p = 3
x - 5 = 3,x = 8
This is a real root since x is greater than 5.
x - 5 = -8, x = -3.
This root can be negated because x is not greater than 5.
Case 1: p < 0
p2 − 5p − 24 = 0
p2 − 8p + 3p − 24 = 0
p = 8, -3 x - 5 = 8, x = 13.
This root can be negated because x is not less than 5
x - 5 = -3, x = 2. This is a real root because x is less than 5.
The sum of the real roots = 8 + 2 = 10
D is the correct answer.
