__Answers__:**1. Answer: 30days.**

**Explanation:**

Before:

One day work = 1 / 20

One mans one day work = 1 / ( 20 * 75)

Now:

No. Of workers = 50

One day work = 50 * 1 / ( 20 * 75)

The total no. of days required to complete the work = (75 * 20) / 50 = 30

**2. Answer: 0**

**Explanation:**

Since 3x / 2 = x / (2 / 3)

**3. Answer:5.3 %**

**Explanation:**

He sells 950 grams of pulses and gains 50 grams.

If he sells 100 grams of pulses then he will gain (50 / 950) *100 = 5.26

**4. Answer: 250 lines of codes**

**5. Answer: 7 days**

**Explanation:**

The equation portraying the given problem is:

10 * x 2 * (30 x) = 216

where x is the number of working days. Solving this we get x = 23

Number of days he was absent was 7 (30-23) days.

**6. Answer: 150 men**

**Explanation:**

One days work = 2 / (7 * 90)

One hours work = 2 / (7 * 90 * 8)

One mans work = 2 / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75)

The remaining work (5/7) has to be completed within 60 days, because the total number of days

allotted for the project is 150 days.

So we get the equation

(2 * 10 * x * 60) / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) = 5/7 where x is the number of men working after the 90th

day.

We get x = 225. Since we have 75 men already, it is enough to add only 150 men.

**7. Answer: (c) 1**

**Explanation:**

a percent of b : (a/100) * b

b percent of a : (b/100) * a

a percent of b divided by b percent of a : ((a / 100 )*b) / (b/100) * a )) = 1

**8. Answer: Cost price of horse = Rs. 400 & the cost price of cart = 200.**

**Explanation:-**

Let x be the cost price of the horse and y be the cost price of the cart.

In the first sale there is no loss or profit. (i.e.) The loss obtained is equal to the gain.

Therefore (10/100) * x = (20/100) * y

X = 2 * y -----------------(1)

In the second sale, he lost Rs. 10. (i.e.) The loss is greater than the profit by Rs. 10.

Therefore (5 / 100) * x = (5 / 100) * y + 10 -------(2)

Substituting (1) in (2) we get

(10 / 100) * y = (5 / 100) * y + 10

(5 / 100) * y = 10

y = 200

From (1) 2 * 200 = x = 400

**9. Answer : 3.**

**Explanation:**

Since inclusion of any male player will reject a female from the team. Since there should be

four member in the team and only three males are available, the girl, n should included in the

team always irrespective of others selection.

**10.Answer:5**

**11.Answer: 1,2,3 & 4**

**12.Answer: B**

**13.Answer:11 & 9 apples per tree.**

**Explanation:**

Let a, b, c, d & e be the total number of apples bored per year in A, B, C, D & E s orchard.

Given that a + 1 = b + 3 = c 1 = d + 3 = e 6

But the question is to find the number of apples bored per tree in C and D s orchard. If is

enough to consider c 1 = d + 3.

Since the number of trees in Cs orchard is 11 and that of Ds orchard is 13. Let x and y be the

number of apples bored per tree in C & d s orchard respectively.

Therefore 11 x 1 = 13 y + 3

By trial and error method, we get the value for x and y as 11 and 9

**14.Answer: G.**

**Explanation:**

The order in which they are climbing is R G K H J

**15.-18**

**Answer:**

**Explanation:**

Since Blueja doesnt publish the novel by Burchfield and Heron publishes the novel spy thriller, Piegon publishes the novel by Burchfield. Since Hopper writes Gothic romance and Heron publishes the novel spy thriller, Blueja publishes the novel by Hopper. Since Heron publishes the novel spy thriller and Heron publishes the novel by Gorky, Gorky writes Spy thriller and

Rathko writes Murder mystery.

**19. Answer: 451 times.**

**Explanation: There are 60 minutes in an hour.**

In 3/4 of an hour there are (60 * 3/4) minutes = 45 minutes.

In 3/4 of an hour there are (60 * 45) seconds = 2700 seconds.

Light flashed for every 6 seconds.

In 2700 seconds 2700/6 = 450 times.

The count start after the first flash, the light will flashes 451 times in 3/4 of an

hour.

**20. Answer: (4**

**Explanation:**

**Since p is a point on the line segment AB, AB > AP**

**21. Answer: (c)**

**22. Answer: (b) & (d).**

**28. Answer: Fakis**

**29.Answer: (5).**

**Explanation**: Since every alternative letter starting from B of the English alphabet is

written in small letter, the letters written in small letter are b, d, f...In the first two

answers the letter E is written in both small & capital letters, so they are not the correct

answers. But in third and fourth answers the letter is written in small letter instead

capital letter, so they are not the answers.

**30.Answer: x = 4**

**Explanation**: Since the side of the square is x + 2, its perimeter = 4 (x + 2) = 4x + 8.

Since the side of the equilateral triangle is 2x, its perimeter = 3 * 2x = 6x

Also, the perimeters of both are equal.

(i.e.) 4x + 8 = 6x

(i.e.) 2x = 8*x = 4.

**31.Answer: (y - 2) / y.**

**Explanatio**n: To type a manuscript karthik took y hours.

Therefore his speed in typing = 1/y. He was called away after 2 hours of typing.

Therefore the work completed = 1/y * 2. Therefore the remaining work to be completed

= 1 2/y. (i.e.) work to be completed = (y-2)/y

**32.Answer: (2)**

**33.Answer: 1**

**Explanation**: One is the only number exists without reciprocal because the reciprocal of

one is one itself.

**34.Answer: Sudhir had 39 cars, Arvind had 21 cars and Gauri had 12 cars.**

**Explanation**: Sudhir Arvind Gaur

Finall 24 24

Before Gauris transaction 12 12 4

Before Arvinds transaction 6 42 24

Before Sudhir s transaction 39 21 12

**16.35. Answer: Cost price of horse: Rs. 400 & Cost price of cart: Rs. 20**

**Explanation**: Let x be the cost of horse & y be the cost of the cart.

10 % of loss in selling horse = 20 % of gain in selling the cart

Therefore (10 / 100) * x = (20 * 100) * y

x = 2y -----------(1)

5 % of loss in selling the horse is 10 more than the 5 % gain in selling the

cart. Therefore (5 / 100) * x - 10 = (5 / 100) *

5x - 1000 = 5

Substituting (1)

10y - 1000 = 5y; 5y = 1000; y = 200; x = 400 from (1)

__Answer__**Explanation**:

Let x be the amount of increase. The volume will increase by the same

amount if the radius increased or the height is increased. So, the effect on increasing height is equal to the effect on increasing the radius. i.e., (22/7)*8*8*(3+x) = (22/7)*(8+x)*(8+x)*3

Solving the quadratic equation we get the x = 0 or 16/3. The possible increase would be by 16/3 inches.

__Answer__**Explanation**:

a + b + c + d =45; a+2 = b-2 = 2c = d/2; a=b-4; c = (b-2)/2; d = 2(b-2); b-4

+ b + (b-2)/2 + 2(b-2) = 45;
