1. One-third of Rahul's savings in National Savings Certificate is equal to one-half of his savings in Public Provident Fund. If he has Rs. 1, 50,000 as total savings, how much has he saved in Public Provident Fund?

A.Rs. 30,000
B.Rs. 50,000
C.Rs. 60,000
D.Rs. 90,000

Answer: C

Let savings in N.S.C and P.P.F. be Rs. x and Rs. (150000 - x) respectively. Then, 1/3 x = (1/2) * (150000 - x) (x/3) + (x/2) = 75000 (5/6) x = 75000 X = 90000 Therefore Savings in Public Provident Fund = 150000 - 90000= Rs. 60000

2. A man has some hens and cows. If the number of heads is 48 and the number of feet equals 140, then the number of hens will be:


Answer: D

Let the number of hens be x and the number of cows be y. Then, x + y = 48.... (i) and 2x + 4y = 140 x + 2y = 70.... (ii) Solving (i) and (ii) we get: x = 26, y = 22. The required answer = 26.

3. X and Y can do a piece of work in 20 days and 12 days respectively. X started the work alone and then after 4 days Y joined him till the completion of the work. How long did the work last ?

A.6 days
B.10 days
C.15 days
D.20 days

Answer: B

Work done by X in 4 days (1/20) * 4 = 1/5 Remaining work = 1- (1/5) = 4/5 (X + Y)'s 1 day's work (1/20) + (1/20) = 8 / 60 = 2/ 15 Work done by X and Y in 1 day = 2/15 So, 4/5 work will be done by X and Y in (15/2)* (4/5) = 6 days Hence, total time taken = 6+ 4 = 10 days

4. The difference between a two-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging the positions of its digits is 36. What is the difference between the two digits of that number?

D.cannot be determined

Answer: B

Let the ten's digit be x and unit's digit be y. Then, (10x + y) - (10y + x) = 36 9(x - y) = 36 x - y = 4.

5. On dividing a number by 5, we get 3 as remainder. What will the remainder when the square of the number is divided by 5?


Answer: D

Let the number be x and on dividing x by 5, we get k as quotient and 3 as remainder. x = 5k + 3 x2 = (5k + 3)2 = (25k2 + 30k + 9) = 5(5k2 + 6k + 1) + 4 On dividing x2 by 5, we get 4 as remainder.

6. Sum of squares of two numbers is 404 and sum of two numbers is 22.Then product of two numbers?

D.none of these

Answer: B

According to the given conditions x + y = 22 and x2 + y2 = 404 now (x + y)2 = x2 + y2 + 2xy so 222 = 404 + 2xy so xy = 80/2 = 40.

Answer: D

Comparing statements B and D for starters as per the options, statement B scores over statement D. BD versus BC (as per the options) - By several reading of the sentences it is possible to see that BC is mandatory or that statement C cannot be placed next to any other statement available except immediately after statement B because of its 'there is similar neglect. The neglect is mentioned only in statement B. BCED and BCDE would have been very difficult to decide. Fortunately we are not required to decide this, because BCED is the only choice. Statement A then falls automatically at the end of the paragraph. Hence, the correct answer is option D

30. A. This is now orthodoxy to which I subscribe - up to a point. B. It emerged from the mathematics of chance and statistics.
C.Therefore the risk is measurable and manageable.
DThe fundamental concept: Prices are not predictable, but the mathematical laws of chance can describe their fluctuations.
E.This is how what business schools now call modern finance was born.


Answer: B

The best way to solve this one is not through the options. If you read the sentence several times there are two possibilities for the 'it' in statement B. The 'it' is either 'The fundamental concept' in D (i.e. BD) or 'modern finance' in E (i.e. EB). No other combination even as per the given options (CB and AB) would make sense if the 'it' is worked upon. BD is not in the options. Now, one has to merely check if EBDCA makes sense and there is no other option to compare with. Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: Option B

Pesl means basketball; ligen means court; strisi means room; olta means placement; and ganti means test. Because strisi means room, it must be present in the answer, so that rules out choice c.

10. The rules of baseball state that a batter Legally Completes His Time at Bat when he is put out or becomes a base runner. Which situation below is the best example of a batter Legally Completing His Time at Bat?

A. Jared’s blooper over the head of the shortstop puts him in scoring position. 
B. The umpire calls a strike, even though the last pitch was way outside. 
C. The pitcher throws his famous knuckleball, Joe swings and misses, and the umpire calls a strike. 
D. The count is two balls and two strikes as Mario waits for the next pitch.

Answer: Option A

The fact that Jared is in scoring position due to his blooper indicates that he has hit the ball and is now a base runner; therefore, he has legally completed his time at bat. Choices b and c both describe situations in which a strike is called, but they do not state that the batter has been put out or that he is now a base runner. Choice d describes a situation in which the batter, Mario, is still at the plate waiting for the next pitch.

13. Fact 1: Robert has four vehicles.
Fact 2: Two of the vehicles are red.
Fact 3: One of the vehicles is a minivan.
If the first three statements are facts, which of the following statements must also be a fact?
I. Robert has a red minivan.
II. Robert has three cars.
III. Robert’s favorite color is red.

A. I only 
B. II only 
C. II and III only 
D. None of the statements is a known fact.

Answer: Option D

There is not enough information to support any of the statements. Robert is known to have a minvan, but it is not known which of his vehicles is red. Robert may have a pickup or sport utility vehicle, so the second statement cannot be supported. There is no way to know if Robert’s favorite color is red (statement III).
