Answer: C

 Assume there are x participants in the race. In a round race, number of participants in front of a person wil be x-1 and that behind him wil be x-1. i.e, 1/3(x-1) + 3/4(x-1) = x solving x = 13

4. Find the value of X,Y and Z in the following

A.X=9 , Y=2; Z=8 
B.X=9 , Y=1; Z=9
C.X=8 , Y=1; Z=8
D.X=9 , Y=1; Z=8

Answer: D

5. The smallest number which when diminished by 7, is divisible 12, 16, 18, 21 and 28 is:


Answer: B

 Required number = (L.C.M. of 12,16, 18, 21, 28) + 7 = 1008 + 7 = 1015

6. The ratio of two numbers is 3 : 4 and their H.C.F. is 4. Their L.C.M. is


Answer: D

Let the numbers be 3x and 4x. Then, their H.C.F. = x. So, x = 4. So, the numbers 12 and 16. L.C.M. of 12 and 16 = 48.

7. 252 can be expressed as a product of primes as:

A.2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 
B.2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 7
C.3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7

A.2 : 3 
B.4 : 3 
C.6 : 7 
D.9 : 16

Answer: B

 Let us name the trains as A and B. Then, (A's speed) : (B's speed) = b : a = 16 : 9 = 4 : 3.

10. If a and b are positive integers and (a-b)/3.5 = 4/7, then

A.b < a 
B.b > a 
C.b = a 
D.b >= a

Answer: A

11. If 5 women or 8 girls can do a work in 84 days. In how many days can 10 women and 5 girls can do the same work?

A.31 days 
B.30 days
C.33 days
D.32 days

Answer: D

Given that 5 women is equal to 8 girls to complete a work so, 10 women=16 girls. Therefore 10women +5girls=16girls+5girls=21girls. 8 girls can do a work in 84 days then 21 girls= (8*84/21)=32days. Therefore 10 women and 5 girls can work in 32days

12. SECTION-1 If 9 men working 6 hours a day can do a work in 88 days. Then 6 men working 8 hours a day can do it in how many days?


Answer: B

 If men is fixed,work is proportional to time. If work is fixed, then time is inversely proportional to men therefore, (M1*T1/W1)=(M2*T2/W2) From the above formula i.e (m1*t1/w1)=(m2*t2/w2) so (9*6*88/1)=(6*8*d/1) on solving, d=99days.

13. walking at ¾ of his usual speed ,a man is late by 2 ½ hr. the usual time is

B.7 ½
C.8 ½ 

Answer: B

Usual speed = S Usual time = T Distance = D New Speed is ¾ S New time is 4/3 T 4/3 T – T = 5/2 T=15/2 = 7 ½

14. In a boat, 25 persons were sitting. Their average weight increased one kilogram when One man goes and a new man comes in. The weight of the new man is 70kgs. Find the Weight of the man who is going?


Answer: A

Weight increased per person is 1 kg. Total increase in weight = 25 kgs Weight of new man is 70 kgs, (Which means his weight is 25 kgs heavier) The weight of the old man was 70 – 25 = 45 kgs

15. A man can row 4.5 km/hr in still water. It takes him twice as long to row upstream as to row downstream. What is the rate of the current?

A.3.5 km/hr 
B.2.5 km/hr.
C.4.5 km/hr.
D.1.5 km/hr

Answer: D

Speed of boat in still water (b) = 4.5 km/hr. Speed of boat with stream (Down Stream), D = b + u Speed of boat against stream (Up stream), U = b – u It is given upstream time is twice to that of downstream. 
Downstream speed is twiceto that of upstream. So b + u = 2(b – u) ? u =b/3 = 1.5 km/hr.

16. A sum of money amounts to Rs. 9800 after 5 years and Rs. 12005 after 8 years at the same rate of simple interest. The rate of interest per annum is


Answer: C

 S.I. for 3 years = Rs. (12005 - 9800) = Rs. 2205. S.I. for 5 years = Rs. (2205/3) x 5 = Rs. 3675 Principal = Rs. (9800 - 3675) = Rs. 6125. Hence, rate = (100 x 3675)/( 6125 x 5) % = 12%

17. A man starts walking at 3 pm . he walks at a speed of 4 km/hr on level ground and at a speed of 3 km/hr on uphill , 6 km/hr downhill and then 4 km/hr on level ground to reach home at 9 pm. What is the distance covered on one way?

A.12 km 
B.23 km
C.45 km 
D.65 km

Answer: A

lets us consider t1 = time taken on level road. t2 = uphill. t3 = down hill; the distance traveled uphill and down hill same so t2*3 = 6*t3; => t2 = 2t3;---> (1) total time = 2*t1 + t2 + t3 = 6 hours ---> (2) 2t1+3t3 = 6 -->(3) total distance= 2*(4t1) + 3*t2+ 6*t3 ---> (4) substitute (1) in (4) 8t1 + 12t3 => 4(2t1+3t3) then from (3) the total distance will become 4*6= 24 => one way distance = 12km

18. In a group of cows and hens, the number of legs are 14 more than twice the number of heads. The number of cows is


Answer: B

 Let the number of cows be x and the number of hens be y. Then, 4x + 2y = 2 (x + y) + 14 4x + 2y = 2x + 2y + 14 2x = 14 x = 7.

21. If 9x-3y=12 and 3x-5y=7 then 6x-2y = ?


Answer: D

 Consider 9x - 3y = 12.........divide both sides by 3: 3x - y = multiply both sides by 2: 6x - 2y = 8 So, it`s (d)

22. Two bus tickets from city A to B and three tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 77 but three tickets from city A to B and two tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 73. What are the fares for cities B and C from A ?

A.Rs. 4, Rs. 23
B.Rs. 13, Rs. 17
C.Rs. 15, Rs. 14
D.Rs. 17, Rs. 13

Answer: B

Let Rs. x be the fare of city B from city A and Rs. y be the fare of city C from city A. Then, 2x + 3y = 77 ...(i) and 3x + 2y = 73 ...(ii) Multiplying (i) by 3 and (ii) by 2 and subtracting, we get: 5y = 85 or y = 17. Putting y = 17 in (i), we get: x = 13.

B.C is 11 years younger than A
C.C is 18 years younger than A 
D.C is 22 years younger than A

A.23 years 
B.30 years 
C.33 years 
D.42 years

Answer: C

 Let the present age be 'x' years. Then father's present age is 3x+3 years. Three years hence (3x+3)+3=2(x+3)+10 x=10 Hence father's present age = 3x+3 =[ (3 x 10) + 3] = 33 years.

Choice b may seem like a logical answer, but the paragraph only refers to people who are fitness walkers, so for others, a health club might be a good investment. Choice c is not in the passage. Although choice e seems logical, the paragraph does not indicate that the wrong shoes will produce major injuries.
