Q17. A rich merchant had collected many gold coins. He did not want anybody to know about them. One day, his wife asked, "How many gold coins do we have?" After pausing a moment, he replied, "Well!

Q23. A man was engaged on a job for 30 days on the condition that he would get a wage of Rs. 10 for the day he works, but he have to pay a fine of Rs. 2 for each day of his absence. If he gets Rs. 216 at the end, he was absent for work  for ... days.

A.20
B.8
C.7
D.10

ANS: C

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 (30-23) = 7 days.

Q24. A contractor agreeing to finish a work in 150 days, employed 75 men each  working 8 hours daily. After 90 days, only 2/7 of the work was completed. Increasing the number of men by ________ each working now for 10 hours daily, the work can be completed in time.

A.140
B.150
C.59
D.100

ANS: B

Explanation:

One mans one hours 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.

A.0.002688
B.0.011
C.0.002888
D.0.0048

ANS: A

Explanation:

There are total of 64 blocks on a chessboard. So 3 blocks can be chosen out of 64 in 64C3 ways.
So the sample space is = 41664 There are 2 diagonal on chessboard each one having 8 blocks.
Consider one of them. 3 blocks out of 8 blocks in diagonal can be chosen in 8C3 ways.
But there are 2 such diagonals, hence favourables = 2 * 8C3 = 2 * 56 = 112 The required probability is = 112 / 41664 = 1 / 372 = 0.002688.

Q29. What is the area of the triangle ABC with A(e,p) B(2e,3p) and C(3e,5p)? where p = PI (3.141592654)
