Let the principal be Rs 100. Then, S.I = (100*20*3)/100 = Rs 60 CI = 100(1 + 20/100)^3 -100 = Rs 364/5 Thus, CI - SI = 364/5 - 60 = 64/5. difference principal 64/5 100 48 ? principal = Rs 100*48/(64/5) = Rs 375

**23. A worker is paid Rs 56 for 35 hour . Upto 40 hour, he is paid at the normal rate and on overtime, 1.5 times the normal. How many hours did he work to get Rs88 ?**

A.58 B.55 C.50 D.none

Answer: C

Explanation:

Let the worker worked for (40+x) hours, then (56/35 * 40) + (x*1.5*56)/35 = 88 2.4 x = 88 => x=10. The worker worked for (40+10) = 50 hour.

A.7.5 hr B.10 hr C.8 hr D.8.5 hr

A.50 B.60 C.40 D.55

Answer: A

Explanation:

Let there be originally x persons. Then share of each persons = Rs 6500/x Given, 6500/(x+15) = 6500/x - 30 6500/x - 6500/(x+15) =30 On solving we get x= 50.

**26. If the ratio of boys to girls in a class is B and the ratio of girls to boys is G, then 3(B+G) is**

A.equal to 3 B.less than 3 C.more than 6 D.less than 1/3

Answer: C

Explanation:

Let the number of boys be x and number of girls be y. Then , x/y =B and y/x =G 3(B+G) = 3(x/y + y/x) As we know that p+1/p always greater than or equal to 2. Thus 3(B+G)>= 6.

27. 3L water is taken out from a vessel full of water and substituted by pure milk. This process is repeated two more times. Finally the ratio of milk and water in the solution becomes 1728:27. Find the volume of the original solution.

27. 3L water is taken out from a vessel full of water and substituted by pure milk. This process is repeated two more times. Finally the ratio of milk and water in the solution becomes 1728:27. Find the volume of the original solution.

A.3L B.2L C.4L D.8L

Answer: C

Explanation:

Final quantity of water = y(1 - y/x)^n => x(1 - 3/x)^3 => F/x = {(x-3)/x}^3 = 27/1728 => (x-3)/x = 3/12 => x= 4L.

**29. What is the day on 14th March, 1993 ?**

A.Friday B.Thursday C.Sunday D.Saturday

Total number of odd days = (1+3+3) = 7 odd days. Therefore it will be Sunday on 14th March 1993.
