Q2. The average of the first nine integral multiples of 3 is

A) 15
B) 18
C) 21

A) 5
B) 6
C) 16
D) 3

Q4. A box has 100 blue balls, 50 roil balls, 50 black balls. 25% of blue balls and 50% of red balls are taken away. % of black balls at present is

A) 2 pairs
B) 5 pairs
C) 3 pairs
D) 4 pairs

If the C.P. of ratio be SR. X then

If no discount is allowed,
Gain = 480 – 400 = Rs. 80
Gain percent =

Q8. N is the foot of the perpendicular from a point P of a circle with radius 7 cm, on a diameter AB of the circle. If the length of the chord PB is 12 cm, the distance of the point N from the point B is

A) 26/7 cm
B) 72/7 cm
C) 47/7 cm
D) 86/7 cm

ANS: B

Explanation:

AB = 14cm, PB = 12cm APB = 900
⇒ AP =
On = x ⇒ AN = 7 – x : BN = 7 + x ⇒ From ΔPan, PN2 = AP2 – AN2 = 52 – (7 – x)2 ⇒ From ΔPNB, PN2 = (12)2– (7 + x)2
⇒ 52 – (7-x)2 = 144-(7+x)2 ⇒ 52 – (49 – 14x + x⇒) = 144 – (49 + 14x + x2)
⇒ 52 – 49 + 14x2 – x = 144 – 49 – 14x – x2 ⇒ 28x – 144 – 52 = 92 ⇒ x- 92/28 = 23/7
⇒ BN = 7+x = 7 + 23/7 = (49+23)/7=72/7 cm

Q9. Two cars are moving with speeds v1, v2 towards a crossing along two roads. If their distances from the crossing be 40 meters and 50 metres at an instant of time then they do not collide if their speeds are such that

A) v1 : v2 = 5 :  4
B) v1 : v2 = 25 : 16
C) v1 : v2 = 16 : 25
D) v1 : v2 = 4 :  5

ANS: D

Explanation:

If 40/V1= 50/V2 ,then they will collide i.e. cars will reach at the same time.

Q10. A certain distance is covered at a certain speed. If half of this distance is covered in double the time, the ratio of the two speeds is:

A) 1: 4
B) 2: 1
C) 1: 2
D) 4: 1

ANS: D

Explanation:

If the original speed be S1 units and time = 11 units and distance = D, then
(D/2)/2t1= S2
⇒ S2 = D/4t1
and S1= D/t1
