A. 9 

B. 10 

C. 12 

D. 20

Answer: Option B


Due to stoppages, it covers 9 km less.

Time taken to cover 9 km = 9/54 * 60 = 10 min.

2. A jogger running at 9 km/hr along side a railway track is 240 m ahead of the engine of a 120 m long train running at 45 km/hr in the same direction. In how much time will the train pass the jogger?

A. 3.6 sec 

B. 18 sec 

C. 36 sec 

D. 72 sec

Answer: Option C


Speed of train relative to jogger = 45 - 9 = 36 km/hr.

= 36 * 5/18 = 10 m/sec.
Distance to be covered = 240 + 120 = 360 m.
Time taken = 360/10 = 36 sec.

3. Kim can do a work in 3 days while David can do the same work in 2 days. Both of them finish the work together and get Rs. 150. What is the share of Kim?

A. Rs. 30 

B. Rs. 60 

C. Rs. 70 

D. Rs. 75

Answer: Option B


Kim's wages : David's wages = Kim's 1 day work : David's 1 day work = 1/3 : 1/2 = 2:3

Kim's share = 2/5 * 150 = Rs. 60

4. A and B start a business, with A investing the total capital of Rs.50000, on the condition that B pays A interest @ 10% per annum on his half of the capital. A is a working partner and receives Rs.1500 per month from the total profit and any profit remaining is equally shared by both of them. At the end of the year, it was found that the income of A is twice that of B. Find the total profit for the year?

A. 53000 

B. 58000 

C. 50000 

D. 59000

Answer: Option D


Interest received by A from B = 10% of half of Rs.50000 = 10% * 25000 = 2500.

Amount received by A per annum for being a working partner = 1500 * 12 = Rs.18000.
Let 'P' be the part of the remaining profit that A receives as his share. Total income of A = (2500 + 18000 + P)
Total income of B = only his share from the remaining profit = 'P', as A and B share the remaining profit equally.
Income of A = Twice the income of B
(2500 + 18000 + P) = 2(P)
P = 20500
Total profit = 2P + 18000
= 2*20500 + 18000 = 59000

5. Salaries of Ravi and Sumit are in the ratio 2:3. If the salary of each is increased by Rs. 4000, the new ratio becomes 40:57. What is Sumit's present salary?

A. Rs. 17,000 

B. Rs. 20,000 

C. Rs. 25,500 

D. None of these

Answer: Option D


Let the original salaries of Ravi and Sumit be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively. 

Then, (2x + 4000)/(3x + 4000) = 40/57 
6x = 68000 => 3x = 34000
Sumit's present salary = (3x + 4000) = 34000 + 4000 = Rs. 38,000.

6. A man can row 6 kmph in still water. When the river is running at 1.2 kmph, it takes him 1 hour to row to a place and black. What is the total distance traveled by the man?

D. 5.66 km

Answer: Option C


M = 6

S = 1.2

x = 2.88
D = 2.88 * 2 = 5.76

A. 4% 

B. 5 2/3 % 

C. 6% 

D. 6 2/3 %

Answer: Option A

Rate = (100 * 2x) / (x * 5 * 10) = 4%

8. If the area of a circle is 616 sq cm then its circumference?

A. 78 m 

B. 88 m 

C. 75 m 

D. 70 m

A. 35.2 

B. 36.1 

C. 36.5 

D. 39.1

Answer: Option C


Correct sum = (36 * 50 + 48 - 23) = 1825.

10. The H.C.F and L.C.M of two numbers are 84 and 21 respectively. If the ratio of the two numbers is 1:4, then the larger of the two numbers is:

A. 12 

B. 48 

C. 84 

D. 108

Answer: Option C


Let the numbers be x and 4x. Then, x * 4x = 84 * 21 x2 = (84 * 21)/4 = x = 21. 

Hence, larger number = 4x = 84.

11. If the sum and difference of two numbers are 20 and 8 respectively, then the difference of their square is:

A. 12 

B. 28 

C. 160 

D. 180

Let the numbers be x and y. 

Then, x + y = 20 and x - y = 8
x2 - y2 = (x + y)(x - y) = 20 * 8 = 160.

12. Pipes A and B can fill a tank in 5 and 6 hours respectively. Pipe C can empty it in 12 hours. If all the three pipes are opened together, then the tank will be filled in?

A. 2 

B. 2 1/2 

C. 3 

D. 4

Answer: Option A


Amount = (30000 + 4347) = Rs. 34347 

Let the time be n years. Then, 
30000(1 + 7/100)n = 34347 
= (107/100)n = 34347/30000 = (107/100)2 
n = 2 years.

A. 8 

B. 10 

C. 11 

D. 12

Answer: Option D


Suppose he has 100 items. Let C.P. of each item be Re. 1.

Total cost = Rs. 100. Number of items left after theft = 80.
S.P. of each item = Rs. 1.10
Total sale =  1.10 * 80 = Rs. 88
Hence, loss % = 12/100 * 100 = 12%

17. Eighteen years ago, a father was three times as old as his son. Now the father is only twice as old his son. Then the sum of the present ages of the son and the father is:

A. 54 

B. 72 

C. 105 

D. 108

Answer: Option D


Let the present ages of the father and son be 2x and x years respectively. 

Then, (2x - 18) = 3(x - 18) => x = 36 
Required sum = (2x + x) = 108 years.

18. In an office, totally there are 6400 employees and 65% of the total employees are males. 25% of the males in the office are at-least 50 years old. Find the number of males aged below 50 years?

A. 1040 

B. 2080 

C. 3120 

D. 4160 

Answer: Option C


Number of male employees = 6400 * 65/100 = 4160

Required number of male employees who are less than 50 years old = 4160 * (100 - 25)%
= 4160 * 75/100 = 3120.

19. The sum of four consecutive even numbers is 292. What would be the smallest number?

A. 74 

B. 76

Answer: Option C


Let the four consecutive even numbers be 2(x - 2), 2(x - 1), 2x, 2(x + 1)

Their sum = 8x - 4 = 292 => x = 37
Smallest number is: 2(x - 2) = 70.

A. Rs. 4800 

B. Rs. 3600 

C. Rs. 3560 

D. Rs. 4530
