Tiring as these activities were, we could manage only one per day, i.e., either we went for a jog or played tennis each day. There were days when we felt lazy and stayed home all day long. Now, there were 12 mornings when we did nothing, 18 evenings when we stayed at home, and a total of 14 days when we jogged or played tennis. For how many days did I stay at my cousin's place?


Answer: C

Use sets and venn diagram to solve such questions.a,b ,aub,anb etc. 12=tennis+leave 18=jog+leave so jog-tennis=6 again solve and get jog=10,leave=8, tot=22

8. Five farmers have 7, 9, 11, 13 & 14 apple trees, respectively in their orchards. Last year, each of them discovered that every tree in their own orchard bore exactly the same number of apples. Further, if the third farmer gives one apple to the first, and the fifth gives three to each of the second and the fourth, they would all have exactly the same number of apples. What were the yields per tree in the orchards of the third and fourth farmers?


Answer: B

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 C’s orchard is 11 and that of D’s 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

9. Five boys were climbing a hill. J was following H. R was just ahead of G. K was between G & H. They were climbing up in a column. Who was the second?

Answer: B

Let 1 man's 1 day's work = x and 1 woman's 1 day's work = y. Then, 4x+6y=1/8 and 3x+7y=1/10 Solving the two equations, 
we get:x=11/400, y=1/400 1 women's 1 days work=1/400. 1 0 womens 1 days work=(1/400*10)=1/40. Hence ,10 women will complete the work in 40 days

11. Two trains running in opposite directions cross a man standing on the platform in 27 seconds and 17 seconds respectively and they cross each other in 23 seconds. The ratio of their speeds is:

D.none of these

24. The distance between Station Atena and Station Barcena is 78 miles. A train starts from Atena towards Barcena. A bird starts at the same time from Barcena straight towards the moving train.
  On reaching the train, it instantaneously turns back and returns to Barcena. The bird makes these journeys from Barcena to the train and back to Barcena continuously till the train reaches Barcena. 
 The bird finally returns to Barcena and rests. Calculate the total distance in miles the bird travels in the following two cases: 1.the bird flies at 70 miles per hour and the speed of the train is 60 miles per hour 2. 
 the bird flies at 60 miles per hour and the speed of the train is 70 miles per hour

A.91, 72

Answer: A

Case 1: The train (at a speed of 60 miles per hour) travels 60 miles in 60 minutes. Therefore, the train travels from Atena to Barcena (78 miles) in 78 minutes.
 Importantly, the bird makes the journeys continuously back and forth for this same amount of time (namely, 78 minutes). Thus, the total distance traveled by the bird = 70 miles per hour × 78 minutes = 70 × 78 / 60 miles = 91 miles. 
 Case 2: In 36 minutes, the bird travels 36 miles, the train travels 42 miles, and the two meet. Now, the train (which is traveling at a speed greater than that of the bird) will reach Barcena before the bird. 
So, the bird simply returns to Barcena (a return journey of 36 miles). Thus, the total distance traveled by the bird is 72 miles.

25. Susan can type 10 pages in 5 minutes. Mary can type 5 pages in 10 minutes. Working together, how many pages can they type in 30 minutes?

27. Which one of the following is not a prime number?


Answer: D

91 is divisible by 7. So, it is not a prime number

28. How many of the following numbers are divisible by 132 ? 264, 396, 462, 792, 968, 2178, 5184, 6336


Answer: A

The following are the numbers divisible by 132 : 264, 396, 792 and 6336. Required number of number = 4.

29. The largest 4 digit number exactly divisible by 88 is:

14. In the following questions the symbols @, ?, ?, ? and $ are used with the following meanings:
'A@B' means 'A is neither equal to nor smaller than B'.
'A?B' means 'A is neither greater nor smaller than B'.
'A?B' means 'A is not equal to B'.
'A?B' means 'A is neither greater than nor equal to B'.
'A$B' means 'A is either greater or equal to B'.

Statements: J ? P, P $ N, J ? H
Conclusions: I. J ? N  II. H @ P

A. if only conclusion I is true. 
B. if only conclusion II is true. 
C. if either conclusion I or II is true. 
D. if neither conclusion I nor II is true.

Answer: Option D

J = P -- (i); P = N -- (ii); J ? H -- (iii)
From (i) and (ii), we get, J = P = N => J = N => I may be true but not necessarily so.
From (i) and (iii), P = J ? H => P ? H. Hence again II may be true but H < P may be other possibility.
Hence, II is not true.

II. The post of Councillors should not be merely ornamental.

A. If only conclusion I follows 
B. If only conclusion II follows 
C. If either I or II follows 
D. If neither I nor II follows

Answer: Option B

Nothing can be concluded about "money and power" from the given statement. Hence I does not follow. II follows from the statement. If Councillors are not given powers, they can't fulfill their responsibilities and the post of Councillors will become useless.
