61. In an examination, Rakesh scored 52% marks and failed by 23 marks. In the same examination, Radhika scored 64% marks and get 34 marks more than the passing marks. What is the score of Mohan in the same examination, who secured 84% marks?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:399

Explanation:

According to the question, passing marks are equal so,

52% of total marks + 23 = 64% of total marks - 34

23 + 34 = (64 -52)% of total marks

57 = 12% of total marks

Total marks = 57*(100/12) = 475

Therefore, Mohan’s mark = 84% of total marks

= (84/100)*475

Mohan’s mark = 399.

52% of total marks + 23 = 64% of total marks - 34

23 + 34 = (64 -52)% of total marks

57 = 12% of total marks

Total marks = 57*(100/12) = 475

Therefore, Mohan’s mark = 84% of total marks

= (84/100)*475

Mohan’s mark = 399.

62. Two numbers are such that the sum of thrice the first number and twice the second number is 20 and the sum of twice the first number and twice the second number is 15. Which is the smaller number?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:1

Explanation:

Let the numbers be x and y.

3x + 2y = 20 …..(i)

2x + 3y = 15 ….(ii)

Multiply eq (i) by 3 and multiply eq (ii) by 2,

9x + 6y = 60 …..(iii)

4x + 6y = 30 …..(iv)

By solving (iii) & (iv), we get

x = 6 ; y = 1

Hence the smallest number is 1.

3x + 2y = 20 …..(i)

2x + 3y = 15 ….(ii)

Multiply eq (i) by 3 and multiply eq (ii) by 2,

9x + 6y = 60 …..(iii)

4x + 6y = 30 …..(iv)

By solving (iii) & (iv), we get

x = 6 ; y = 1

Hence the smallest number is 1.

63. A number, when divided by a divisor, leaves a remainder of 24.

When twice the original number is divided by the same divisor, the remainder is 11. What is the value of the divisor?

When twice the original number is divided by the same divisor, the remainder is 11. What is the value of the divisor?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:37

Explanation:

Let the original number be 'a'

Let the divisor be 'd'

Let the quotient of the division of aa by dd be 'x'

Therefore, we can write the relation as a/d = x and the remainder is 24.

i.e., a=dx+24 When twice the original number is divided by d, 2a is divided by d.

We know that a=dx+24. Therefore, 2a = 2dx + 48

The problem states that (2dx+48)/d leaves a remainder of 11.

2dx2dx is perfectly divisible by d and will therefore, not leave a remainder.

The remainder of 11 was obtained by dividing 48 by d.

When 48 is divided by 37, the remainder that one will obtain is 11.

Hence, the divisor is 37.

64. How many five digit numbers are there such that two left most digits are even and remaining are odd and digit 4 should not be repeated?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:2375

Explanation:

We have

4 cases of first digit {2,4,6,8}

5 cases of second digit {0,2,4,6,8}

But 44 is one case we have to omit. So total ways for leftmost two digits are 4 x 5 - 1 = 19

5 cases of third digit {1,3,5,7,9}

5 cases of fourth digit {1,3,5,7,9}

5 cases of fifth digit {1,3,5,7,9}

So total ways = 19 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 2375

4 cases of first digit {2,4,6,8}

5 cases of second digit {0,2,4,6,8}

But 44 is one case we have to omit. So total ways for leftmost two digits are 4 x 5 - 1 = 19

5 cases of third digit {1,3,5,7,9}

5 cases of fourth digit {1,3,5,7,9}

5 cases of fifth digit {1,3,5,7,9}

So total ways = 19 x 5 x 5 x 5 = 2375

65. Mr. T has a wrong weighing pan. One arm is lengthier than other. 1 kilogram on left balances 8 melons on right, 1 kilogram on right balances 2 melons on left. If all melons are equal in weight, what is the weight of a single melon.

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:200 gm

Explanation:

Let additional weight on left arm be x.

Weight of melon be m

x + 1 = 8 x m - - - - - - (1)

x + 2 x m = 1 - - - - - - (2)

Solving 1 & 2 we get.

Weight of a single Melon = 200 gm

Weight of melon be m

x + 1 = 8 x m - - - - - - (1)

x + 2 x m = 1 - - - - - - (2)

Solving 1 & 2 we get.

Weight of a single Melon = 200 gm

66. Due to some defect in our elevator, I was climbing down the staircase. I'd climbed down just 7 steps when I saw a man on the ground floor. Continuing to walk down, I greeted the man and I was surprised to see that when I was yet to get down 4 steps to reach the ground floor, the man had already finished climbing the staircase. He perhaps climbed up 2 steps for every 1 of mine. How many steps did the staircase have?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:22

Explanation:

Let’s us take X => No of Steps required by boy to climb

No of Steps climbed down when he saw the Old Man at ground floor = 7

After greeting Man no of steps required to climb down = 4

So Total Steps = 7 + 4 => 11 -----(1)

Total Steps => X = 11.

As the old man takes 2X that is 2 steps for every 1

=> 2X ----(2)

The total number of Staircase will be X = 11

So Substituting 2 in 1 will be

=> 2 (11 )

=> 22

**Total Number of Staircase = 22.**

67. In particular language, if A = 0, B = 1, C = 2,........, Y = 24, Z = 25 then what is the value of ONE + ONE (in the form of alphabets only)?

SHOW ANSWER

Correct Ans:BDAI

Explanation:

This problem is based on Base 26 rather than regular base 10 (decimal system) that we normally use. In base 10 there are 10 digits 0 to 9 exist. In base 26 there are 26 digits 0 to 25 exist. To convert any number into base 26, we have to divide the number with 26 and find the remainder.

Here,ONE + ONE

E has value of 4. So

Now N + N = 13 + 13 = 26. But in base 26, there is no 26. So

(26)

So we put 0 and carry over "1" on calculating "O + O". But 0 in this system is A.

Hence,

Now O + O + 1 = 14 + 14 + 1 = 29

Therefore,

(29)

But 1 = B and 3 = D in that system. Hence,

So

Here,ONE + ONE

E has value of 4. So

**E + E**= 8 which is equal to**I**.Now N + N = 13 + 13 = 26. But in base 26, there is no 26. So

(26)

_{10}= (10)_{26}So we put 0 and carry over "1" on calculating "O + O". But 0 in this system is A.

Hence,

**N + N = A**Now O + O + 1 = 14 + 14 + 1 = 29

Therefore,

(29)

_{10}= (13)_{26}But 1 = B and 3 = D in that system. Hence,

**O + O = BD**So

**ONE + ONE = BDAI**
