Q1. A function f(x) is defined as f(x) = f(x - 2) - x(x + 2) for all the integer values of x and f(1) + f(4) = 0. What is the value of f(1) + f(2) + f(3) + f(4) + f(5) + f(6)?

A) 0
B) 89
C) 89
D) None of these

ANS:  C

Explanation:

Let S = f(1) + f(2) + f(3) + f(4) + f(5) + f(6)
As f(1) + f(4) = 0, therefore S = f(2) + f(3) + f(5) + f(6) ------ (1)
f(2) = f(0) - 8
f(3) = f(1) - 15
f(4) = f(2) - 24 = f(0) - 32
f(5) = f(3) - 35 = f(1) - 50
f(6) = f(4) - 48 = f(0) - 80
Put the above values in equation (1), we get
S = f(0) - 8 + f(1) - 15 + f(1) - 50 + f(0) - 80
S = 2(f(0) + f(1)) - 153 ------ (2)
As we already know f(1) + f(4) = 0 ⇒f(1) + f(0) - 32 = 0 ⇒f(1) + f(0) = 32
Putting this value in equation 2, we get S = 2(32) - 153 = -89
So, Ans is option C.

Q2. In ABC, the internal bisectors of  ABC and  ACB met at 1 and BAC = 50.The measure of BIC is

A) 105
B) 115
C) 125
D) 130

ANS:  B.

Explanation:

I is the In-centre
So,  BIC = 90 + 1/2  BAC
= 90 + 1/2 50 = 115

Q3. The difference between [3/5] of [2/3] a number and [2/5] of[1/4] of the same number is 288. What is the number?

A) 960
B) 850
C) 895
D) 955
E) 44%

ANS:  A.

Explanation:

Let the current price be Rs. 100.
For getting 12% profit he should sell it at Rs. 112.
Let the label price be x.
Let the no. Be [3/5]*[{2/5}x]-[2/5]*[1/4]x,then = 288 Solving it we will get 960

Q4. A, B, C and D are four consecutive odd numbers and their average is 42. What is the product of B and D?

A) 1860
B) 1890
C) 1845
D) 1677
E) None of these

ANS: C.

Explanation:

Work done by A and B in 12 days is
12[112*5/4]=12*5/120=.5
As diff. Is same so average should lie between B and C so B is 41 & C is 43 so D must be 45 as we have to find the product of B and D so it would be 1845

Q5. BL and CM are medians of ABC right angled at A and BC =5 cm. If BL =3- 5/2 cm, then the length of CM is

A) 2 5
B) 5 2
C) 10 2
D) 4 5

ANS: A.

Explanation:

Here, BC = 5cm
BL = 3 5/2 cm
By using the formula
4(BL2 + CM2) = 5BC2

Q6. A sum of Rs 731 is divided among A, B and C such that A receive 25% more than B and B receive 25% less than C. What is Cs share in the amount?

A) Rs. 172
B) Rs. 200
C) Rs. 262
D) Rs. 258
E) None of these

ANS: E.

Explanation:

A + B + C = 731 ..... (i) A = 1.25B, gives A = 1.25 * 0.75 C = 0.9375 C....(ii) B = 0.75C....(iii) Using (ii) and (iii) in (i) we get 0.9375C + 0.75C + C = 731, gives C = 272. So option E is the answer.

Q7. In how many different ways can letters of the word "PRAISE" be arranged?

A) 720
B) 610
C) 360
D) 210
E) None of these

ANS: A.

Explanation:

As total number of alphabets in PRAISE are 6, so total no. of ways is 6!=720 So option A is the answer

Q8. If the numerator of a fraction is increased by 150% and the denominator of the fraction is increased by 300%, the resultant fraction is [5/18]. What is original fraction?

A) 4/9
B) 4/5
C) 8/9
D) 8/11
E) None of these

ANS: A.

Explanation:

Let the fraction be [n/d] & after that it becomes [2.5 n / 4 d]=5/18 . So we get the result as [4/9]

Q9. A car covers the first 30 km of its journey in 45 minutes and the remaining 25 km in 30 minutes. What is the average speed of the car?

A) 60
B) 64
C) 49
