4. Two liquids A and B are mixed together in the ratio 2 : 3. The average cost of liquid B is Rs 30 per liter and the average cost of the mixture is Rs. 25 per liter, then find the average cost of liquid A per liter.

Explanation:

Solution is
Given liquids A and B = 2 : 3
Average cost of mixture = Rs. 25 / liter
Average cost of liquid B = Rs. 30 / liter
Let Average cost of liquid A = x per liter

According to the alligation equation,
( 30 - 25 ) / ( 25 - x ) = 2 / 3
=> 5 / ( 25 - x ) = 2 / 3
=> 5 x 3 / 2 = ( 25 - x )
=> 15 / 2 = 25 - x
=> 7.5 = 25 - x
=> x = 25 - 7.5
x = 17.5
So, Average cost of liquid A =17.5 per liter

6. Find the value of 0.37x0.37 + 1.63x1.63 + 2x0.6031 = ?

Explanation:

Solution is
Given 0.37x0.37 + 1.63x1.63 + 2x0.6031
Formula reference : a2 + b2 + 2 x a x b = ( a + b )2
= (0.37)2+(1.63)2+2 x (0.37) x (1.63)
= (0.37 + 1.63)2
= ( 2 )2
= 4

Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them.

The European Union’s Ambassador to New Delhi, Joao Cravinho, last week expressed keenness to pursue the India-EU Free Trade Agreement talks. The desire is mutual. Despite the vigorous pace that the Narendra Modi government has marked in the matter of foreign relations in general, this process has remained in suspended animation for two years now. Minister for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman had assured the Ambassador in March of India’s willingness to resume talks. As Mr. Cravinho mentioned, the meeting of the OECD countries scheduled for June offers an opportunity for both sides to draw up a road map. The EU identified India as a ‘strategic partner’ in 2004. A Joint Action Plan was signed in 2005 and negotiations on the proposed Broad-based Trade and Investment Agreement (BTIA) were launched in June 2007. Eight years down the line, some contentious issues still remain. In the backdrop of Prime Minister Modi’s visit to France and Germany in April came the cancellation of the India-EU summit, apparently for “logistical” reasons. Issues such as the EU ban on import of mangoes from India announced in May 2014, and the legal proceedings in India involving the Italian Marines, are also factors that have left the relationship strained.

The EU is one of India’s largest trading partners and a major source of FDI. The value of EU-India trade grew from €28.6 billion in 2003 to €72.5 billion in 2014, while trade in commercial services rose from €5.2 billion in 2002 to €23.7 billion in 2013. India has concluded agreements with ASEAN, Japan, Singapore and Korea. With the EU the scale of the deal is more ambitious, and consequently the disagreements. For instance, the EU is unhappy with India’s protectionism in the automobile sector, and wants steep cuts in duties, and tariff cuts in things such as wine, spirits and dairy products. But tariff cuts in the agricultural sector would mean Europe’s heavily subsidised agro industry will dump its surplus here, hitting Indian farmers. India’s generic drug market also raises intellectual property concerns for European pharmaceutical corporations. India, on the other hand, is unhappy with the EU not recognising it as a “data secure nation”, and with what the EU has to offer in the area of IT/BPO/KPO services (Mode 1) and the movement of skilled professionals (Mode 4). But the EU is no doubt keen on partnering with India in programmes such as Make in India, Swachh Bharat and Smart City projects. Another criticism levelled against the FTA talks has been over lack of transparency and inadequate consultations with civil society participants. These concerns will also have to be remedied in future rounds of dialogue. It is to be hoped that the whole process would now gain momentum and lead to a negotiated deal.

8. What is the synonym of the word “inadequate”?

9. Computers use the ____language to process data.

10. Find the value of 0.02x0.02 + 1.22x1.22 - 2x0.0244 = ?

Explanation:

Solution is
Formula reference : a2 + b2 - 2 x a x b = ( a - b )2

= 0.02x0.02 + 1.22x1.22 - 2 x 0.0244
= (0.02)2+(1.22)2 - 2 x (0.02) x (1.22)
= (1.22 - 0.02)2
= (1.2)2
=1.44

30. Area of the base of a cuboid 9 sq m, area of side face and other side face are 16 sq m and 25 sq m respectively. Find the volume of the cuboid

Explanation:

Solution is :
Let l, b and h be the length, breadth and height of the cuboid respectively.
Given , Area of the base of cuboid = 9 sq.cm
=> l x b = 9
Given , Area of side face of cuboid = 16 m2
=> b x h = 16
Given , Area of other side face of cuboid = 25 m2
=> h x l = 25

Volume of cuboid =l x b x h cu.unit
On multipliying equations
We get lxb x bxh x lxh= 9 x 16 x 25
=> l2 x b2 x h2= 9 x 16 x 25
=> (l x b x h )2 =9 x 16 x 25
=> l x b x h =$\fn_jvn \sqrt{9 x 16 x 25}$
= 3 x 4 x 5
= 60
Volume of cuboid = l x b x h = 60 m3
