41. In the following question, there are two equations (I) and (II). Solve the equations and answer accordingly.

I. √x - [(18)(15/2)/x2] = 0
II. √y - [(19)(9/2)/y] = 0

Correct Ans:x < y
Explanation:
Given equation I. √x - [(18)(15/2)/x2] = 0
---> [√x * x2 - (18)(15/2)]/ x2 = 0
----> [√x * x2 - (18)(15/2)] = 0
----> x[(1/2) + 2] = (18)(15/2)
---> x(5/2) = (18)(15/2)
---> x(5/2) = (183)(5/2)
---> x = (183) = 5832

Given equation II. √y - [(19)(9/2)/y] = 0
---> [√y * y - (19)(9/2)] /y = 0
---> √y * y - (19)(9/2) = 0
---> y[(1/2) + 1] = (19)(9/2)
---> y(3/2) = (19)(9/2)
---> y(3/2) = (193)(3/2)
---> y = (193) = 6859
Here, x < y

42. Read the following information carefully & establish a relation between quantity I & quantity II.

Train A cross a platform of length 520 meters in 22.8 sec and a man in 7.2 sec.
Quantity I: If train A cross train B running in same direction at 96 km/hr in 63 seconds then find the length of train B.
Quantity II: What is length of train C having speed of 90 km/hr and cross train A in 7.2 sec running in opposite direction.

Correct Ans:Quantity I = Quantity II
Explanation:
Let the length of the train be 'l' meter.
WKT, Speed = Distance/Time
Speed of train A = (l + 520)/22.8
Also train cross a man, Speed of train = l/7.2
As per the question,
l/7.2 = (l + 520)/22.8
22.8l = 7.2l + 3744
15.6l = 3744
l = 240 m
Speed of train A = (240 + 520)/22.8 = 100/3 m/s

Quantity I:
Let the length of train B be 'b' meter.
[(100/3) - (96 x (5/18))] = (240 + b)/63
20/3 = (240 + b)/63
b = 420 - 240 = 180 m.

Quantity II:
Let the length of the train C be 'c' meter.
[(100/3) - (90 x (5/18))] = (240 + c)/7.2
1260 = 720 + 3c
c = 180 m.

Hence, Quantity I = Quantity II.

43. Read the following information carefully & establish a relation between quantity I & quantity II.

Quantity I: The percentage increase in area of a circle, when the radius of the circle is increased by 100%.
Quantity II: The percentage increase in area of a rectangle when length is increased by 150% and breadth of the rectangle is increased by 160%.

Correct Ans:Quantity I = Quantity II
Explanation:
Quantity I:
Let the radius of circle be 'r' and the area of circle of π r2.
When the radius of the circle is increased by 100%, radius becomes 2r.
Then area of circle = 4π r2

Percentage increase in area of circle = [(4π r2 - π r2)/π r2]*100
= {π r2[4 - 1]/π r2}*100
= 300%.

Quantity II:
Let length and breadth of rectangle be x and y respectively.
Area of rectangle = xy
When length is increased by 150%,
Length of rectangle = (150/100)x = 2.5x

When breadth of the rectangle is increased by 160% ,
Breadth of rectangle = (160/100)y = 1.6y
Area of rectangle = (2.5x)(1.6y) = 4xy
Percentage increase in area of rectangle = [(4xy - xy)/xy]*100 = 300%
Hence, Quantity I = Quantity II.

I. 4 = 3/x + 5/2x2 = 0
II. 14y = 6/y + 5

Correct Ans:x = y or no relation can be established
Explanation:
I. 4 = 3/x + 5/2x2 = 0
4 = (6x + 5)/2x2
8x2 - 6x - 5 = 0
8x2 - 10x + 4x - 5 = 0
2x(4x - 5) + (4x - 5) = 0
(2x + 4) (4x - 5) = 0
x = -1/2; 5/4

II. 14y = 6/y + 5
14y = (6 + 5y)/y
14y2 - 5y - 6 = 0
14y2 - 12y + 7y - 6 = 0
2y(7y - 6) + 1(7y - 6) = 0
(2y + 1) (7y - 6) = 0
y = -1/2; 6/7

(x1, y1) = (-1/2; -1/2) = x = y
(x2, y1) = (5/4; -1/2) = x > y
(x1, y2) = (-1/2; 6/7) = y > x
(x2, y2) = (5/4; 6/7) = x > y
Hence, no relation can be established.

45. In the following question, there are two equations. Solve the equations and answer accordingly.

I. 12m2 - 126m + 294 = 0
II. 7n2 + 123n - 504 = 0

Correct Ans:m > n
Explanation:
I. 12m2 - 126m + 294 = 0
12m2 - 84m - 42m + 294 = 0
12m(m - 7) - 42(m - 7) = 0
(12m - 42) (m - 7) = 0
m = 7, 7/2

II. 7n2 + 123n - 504 = 0
7n2 + 147n - 24n - 504 = 0
7n(n + 21) - 24(n + 21) = 0
(n + 21) (7n - 24) = 0
Hence, m > n.

I. √784x + 1234 = 1486
28x + 1234 = 1486
28x = 252
x = 9

II. √1089y + 2081 = 2345
33y + 2081 = 2345
33y = 264
y = 8

Hence, x > y.

47. Read the following information carefully & establish a relation between quantity I & quantity II.

Train A of length 140 m can cross a platform of length 260 m in 25 second.
Quantity I: The ratio of speed of train A and Train B is 4 : 7. Find the half length of Train B if it can cross a pole in 12 seconds.
Quantity II: 172 m

Correct Ans:Quantity I < Quantity II
Explanation:
Given:
Length of train A = 140 m
Length of platform = 260 m
Time = 25 seconds
WKT, Speed of train = Distance/Time
Speed of train A = (140 + 260)/25 = 16 m/s

Quantity I:
Given, ratio of speeds = 4 : 7
Speed of train B = (7/4)*16 = 28 m/s
Half length of train B = (1/2)*28*12 = 168 m

Quantity II: 172
Hence, Quantity I < Quantity II.

48. Read the following information carefully & establish a relation between quantity I & quantity II.

Quantity I: A started a business with Rs. 25000 and is joined afterwards by B with Rs. 33333.33. After how many months did B join if the profits at the end of the year are divided equally.
Quantity II: A began a business with Rs. 12000. He was joined afterwards by B with Rs. 4000 for how much period does B join. If the profits at the end of the year are divided in the ratio of 4: 1.

Correct Ans:Quantity I < Quantity II
Explanation:
Quantity I:
Lets assume B joined after x months.
Its given that profit are equal,
capital investment of A = capital investment of B
25000*12 = 33333.33*(12 - x)
9 = 12 - x
x = 3
So, B joined after 3 months.

Quantity II:
Lets assume B joined for x months.
Given, ratio of profit = 4 : 1
WKT,
Ratio of capital investment of A/Ratio of capital investment of B = Ratio of profit of A/Ratio of profit of B
(12000*12)/(4000*x) = 4/1
x = 9
So, B joined for 6 months.
Hence, Quantity I < Quantity II.

49. In the following question, there are two equations (I) and (II). Solve the equations and answer accordingly.

I. 48/xÂ² âˆ’ 14/x + 1 = 0
II. 45/yÂ² + 1/y = 2

Correct Ans:x > y
Explanation:
I. 48/xÂ² âˆ’ 14/x + 1 = 0
xÂ² - 14x + 48 = 0
xÂ² - 8x - 6x + 48 = 0
x(x - 8) - 6(x - 8) = 0
(x - 6) (x - 8) = 0
x = 6, 8

II. 45/yÂ² + 1/y = 2
2yÂ² - y - 45 = 0
2yÂ² - 10y + 9y - 45 = 0
2y(y - 5) + 9(y - 5) = 0
(2y + 9) (y - 5) = 0
y = -9/2, 5
Hence, x > y.

50. In the following question, there are two equations (I) and (II). Solve the equations and answer accordingly.

I. y3/2 + 3(y)1/2 - 54(y)-1/2 = 0
II. [(x/23) + (1/4)] = 117/92x

Correct Ans:x = y or no relation can be established between x and y
Explanation:
I. y3/2 + 3(y)1/2 - 54(y)-1/2 = 0
y3/2 + 3(y)1/2 - 54/(y)1/2 = 0
(y2 + 3y - 54)/y1/2 = 0
y2 + 3y - 54 = 0
y2 + 9y - 6y - 54 = 0
y(y + 9) - 6(y + 9) = 0
(y - 6) (y + 9) = 0
y = 6, -9

II. [(x/23) + (1/4)] = 117/92x
(x/23) + (1/4) - (117/92x) = 0
(4x2 + 23x - 117)/92x = 0
4x2 + 23x - 117 = 0
4x2 + 36x - 13x - 117 = 0
4x(x + 9) - 13(x + 9) = 0
(4x - 13) (x + 9) = 0
x = 13/4; -9

(x1, y1) = (13/4, 6) = y > x
(x2, y1) = (-9, 6) = y > x
(x1, y2) = (13/4, -9) = x > y
(x2, y2) = (-9, -9) = y = x
Hence, no relation can be established.

51. In the following question, there are two equations (I) and (II). Solve the equations and answer accordingly.

I. (10/x2) - (13/x) + 4 = 0
II. (14/y2) + 2 = (11/y)

Correct Ans:x ≤ y
Explanation:
Given, I. (10/x2) - (13/x) + 4 = 0
---> (10 - 13x + 4x2) / x2 = 0
---> (10 - 13x + 4x2) = 0
---> 4x2 - 13x + 10 = 0
---> 4x2 - 8x - 5x + 10 = 0
---> 4x(x - 2) - 5(x - 2) = 0
---> (x - 2) (4x - 5) = 0
---> x = 2, 5/4

II. (14/y2) + 2 = (11/y)
---> (14/y2) + 2 - (11/y) = 0
---> (14 + 2y2 - 11y) / y2) = 0
---> (14 + 2y2 - 11y) = 0
---> 2y2 - 11y + 14 = 0
---> 2y2 - 4y - 7y + 14 = 0
---> 2y(y - 2) - 7(y - 2) = 0
---> (y - 2) (2y - 7) = 0
---> y = 2, 7/2

Now, Comparing the values of x and y, we get
For x = 2, y = 2 ---> x = y
For x = 2, y = 7/2 ---> x < y
For x = 5/4, y = 2 ---> x < y
For x = 5/4, y = 7/2 ---> x < y
Hence, x ≤ y

54. What is the value of x + y in the solution of the following equations?

(x/4) + (y/3) = (5/12) and (x/2) + y = 1

Correct Ans:(3/2)
Explanation:
Given, (x/4) + (y/3) = (5/12) and (x/2) + y = 1

Multiplying the first equation with 12 and second equation with 4, we get
3x + 4y = 5 -------> eqn (i)
2x + 4y = 4 -------> eqn (ii)

Now, eqn (i) - eqn (ii), we get
x = 1
Then from eqn (i), 4y = 5 - 3
---> 4y = 2
---> 2y = 1
---> y = 1/2

Hence, the value of x + y = 1 + (1/2)
= 3/2

56. Read the following information carefully & establish a relation between quantity I & quantity II:

A horse and a cow were sold for Rs. 540, making a profit of 25% on the horse and 20% on the cow. By selling for Rs. 538, the profit would be 20% on the horse and 25% on the cow.
Quantity I: CP of one cow
Quantity II: CP of one horse

Correct Ans:quantity I < quantity II
Explanation:
Let CP of a cow and a horse be x and y respectively
For Case I,
SP of both = 125% of y + 120 % of x
Simplifying it,
25y + 24x = 540*20
24x = 540*20 - 25y
x = (540*20 - 25y)/24
x = (540*20)/24 - 25y/24
x = 450 - 25y/24 ----------- (i)
For case II,
SP of both = 120% of y + 125% of x
Simplifying it,
24y + 25x = 538*20
25x = 538*20 - 24y
x = (538*20 - 24y)/25
x = 2152/5 - 24y/25 ----------- (ii)
Solving Equ (i) and (ii),
450 - 25y/24 = 2152/5 - 24y/25
450 - 2152/5 = 25y/24 - 24y/25
(2250 - 2152)/5 = (625y - 576y)/600
98/5 = 49/120
y = 240
Sub y = 240 in equ (i)
x = 450 - (25*240)24
x = 450 - 250 = 200
x = 200, y = 240
Hence, Quantity I < Quantity II

57. Find the appropriate relation for quantity 1 and quantity 2 in the following question:

Two train going in the opposite direction cross each other in 12 sec.
Quantity 1: Length of train 1 if it crosses the pole in 9 sec
Quantity 2: Length of train 2 if it crosses the pole in 24 sec

Correct Ans:quantity 1 > quantity 2
Explanation:
Speed = distance/time
Let the speed and length of 1st train be â€˜S1â€™ and â€˜L1â€™ respectively.
Let the speed and length of 2nd train be â€˜S2â€™ and â€˜L2â€™ respectively.
Given, train going in the opposite direction cross each other in 12 sec.
Relative speed between the trains going in opposite direction = S1 + S2
Total distance travelled = L1 + L2
âˆ´ S1 + S2 = (L1 + L2)/12 -------- (1)
Quantity I : Length of train 1 if it crosses the pole in 9 sec
â‡’ S1 = L1/9
Quantity II : Length of train 2 if it crosses the pole in 24 sec
â‡’ S2 = L2/24
Substituting value of S1 and S2 in eq1
L1/9 + L2/24 = L1/12 + L2/12
L1/9 - L1/12 = L2/12 - L2/24
L1/36 = L2/24
L1/3 = L2/2
L1/L2 = 3/2
L1 : L2 = 3 : 2
L1 > L2
So, quantity 1 > quantity 2

58. Find the appropriate relation for quantity 1 and quantity 2 in the following question:

Quantity I: Vimal's Farm has only Ostriches and Giant marsupial (4 legs mammal), total count of legs was 14 less than 4 times the total count of heads. How many Ostriches are there in total?

Quantity II: Ten politicians are made to stand in a row for any purpose in Parliament. Two politicians are selected at random from the given group. Find the probability that the politician thus selected were positioned adjacent to each other.

Correct Ans:Quantity I > Quantity II
Explanation:
Quantity I:
We know that, Ostriches has 1 head and 2 legs.
Giant marsupial has 1 head and 4 legs
Let the number of Ostriches and that of Giant marsupial be x and y respectively.

According to question,
Total count of legs = 4 times the total count of heads - 14
--> 2x + 4y = [4 * (x + y)] - 14
---> 2x + 4y = 4x + 4y - 14
--> 2x -14 = 0
--> x = 7
Thus, the number of Ostriches = x = 7

Quantity II:
Two Politicians can be selected at random from a group of 10 politician in 10C2 ways
----> (10*9)/(2*1) = 45 ways

Two politicians positioned adjacent to each other can be selected from a group of 10 politician standing in a row in 9 ways

Hence, required probability = 9/45 = 1/5 = 0.2
Here, Quantity I > Quantity II

59. Find the appropriate relation for quantity 1 and quantity 2 in the following question:

Quantity I: A gave one-fifth of the amount he had to B. B in turn gave half of what he received from A to C. If the difference between the remaining amount with A and the amount received by C is Rs. 700, how much money did B receive from A?

Quantity II: Rs 250

Correct Ans:Quantity I < Quantity II
Explanation:
Quantity I:
Let, initially A had Rs. x
Then, amount received by B (from A) = Rs. (x/5)
Now the remaining amount with A = x - (x/5) = 4x/5

Now, amount received by C (from B) = Rs. (x/5) * (1/2) = Rs. (x/10)

Given, remaining amount with A - amount received by C = Rs. 700
---> (4x/5) - (x/10) = 700
---> (8x - x)/10 = 700
---> 7x/10 = 700
---> x = Rs. 1000 --> which is the amount that initially A had.

Then, amount received by B (from A) = Rs. (x/5) = (1000/5) = Rs. 200

Given, Quantity II: Rs 250
Here, Quantity I < Quantity II
