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.

C. 15 days
D. 20 days

Ans. 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

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.

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

A. 20
B. 40
C. 80
D. none of these

People today seem to have increasingly hectic lifestyles. D  In addition, many people spend up to two or three hours a day commuting to and from work


Ans. B

28. A. The most popular activity for Americans was gardening. B.  We can see from the above examples tat in different countries and cultures around the world, free time is spend in different ways.
C. In the U.K., it was going to the pub, followed by visiting the cinema.
D. In Japan, it was very different from the first two countries. Going too bars and pubs ranked eighth in popularity, and gardening ranked ninth.

Indian religious literature such as the Bhagavad Gita or the Tantric texts, which are identified as differing from secular writings seen as 'western', elicits much greater interest in the West than do   other Indian writings, including India's long history of heterodoxy.
C. There is a similar neglect of Indian writing on non-religious subjects, from mathematics, epistemology and natural science to economics and linguistics.
D. Through selective emphasis that point up differences with the West, other civilizations can, in this way, be redefined in alien terms, which can be exotic and charming, or else bizarre and   terrifying, or simply 
strange and engaging.
E.  The exception is the Kamasutra in which western readers have managed to cultivate an interest.


Ans. 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.


Ans. 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

relftaga means carefree
otaga means careful
fertaga means careless
Which word could mean “aftercare”?

A. zentaga 
B. tagafer 
C. tagazen 
D. relffer

Answer: Option C

In this language, the root word taga, which means care, follows the affix (relf, o–, or fer–). Therefore, in the word aftercare, the root word and the affix would be reversed in the artificial language. The only choice, then, is tagazen, because tagafer would mean less care.

A. if only conclusion I is true.

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.
