1. If the side of a square is increased by 25% then it’s area is increased by

A. 25%
B. 40.5%
C. 55%
D. 56.25%

Solution:

½ d1 d2 = 2016
=> d1 d2 = 4032
(1/2 d1) 2 + (1/2 d2) 2 =(65) 2 = d12 + d22= 16900
d12 + d22 +2d1d2 =(16900+ 8064) = 24964
=> (d 1 +d 2) 2 =(158) 2
=> d 1 +d 2 =158
d12 + d22 – 2d1d2 =(16900 – 8064) = 8836
=> (d1 -d2) 2 =(94) 2
=> d1 -d2 =94 d1 +d2 =158 d1 –d2 =94
=>2d1 = 252 => d1 = 126cm
=> d2 = (158 -126) = 32 cm

2. Dacid obtained 76, 65, 82, 67 and 85 marks (out of 100) in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. What are his average marks?

A. 65
B. 69
C. 72
D. 76
E. None of these

Solution:

Average = (76 + 65 + 82 + 67 + 85)/5 = 375/5 = 75.

3. The current of a stream runs at the rate of 4 kmph. A boat goes 6 km and back to the starting point in 2 hours, then find the speed of the boat in still water?

A. 10 kmph
B. 21 kmph
C. 8 kmph
D. 12 kmph

Solution:

S = 4
M = x
DS = x + 4
US = x – 4
6/(x + 4) + 6/(x – 4) = 2
x = 8

4. The difference between simple and compound interests compounded annually on a certain sum of money for 2 years at 4% per annum is Re. 1. The sum (in Rs. ) is?

A. 625
B. 630
C. 640
D. 650

Solution:

Let the sum be Rs. x. Then,
[x (1 + 4/100)2 – x] = (676/625 x – x) = 51/625 x
S.I. = (x * 4 * 2)/100 = 2x/25
51x/625 – 2x/25 = 1 or x = 625.

5. The total cost of flooring a room at Rs 8.50 per square metre is Rs 510. If the length of the room is 8 m, its breadth is:

A. 12.5 m
B. 10.5 m
C. 8.5 m
D. 7.5 m

Solution:

Area = (Total cost/Rate) = 510/8.50) m2
= (510 ×(2/17)) m2 = 60 m2
Area = 60 m2
length = 8 m
Breadth = Area/Length = 60/8 = 7.5 m

6.   A pot contains 40 litres of juice. How much juice will be there in the pot, if 4 litres of juice was removed and was replaced by water and this process was further repeated twice?

A. 32 litre

A. 35
B. 42
C. 49
D. Cannot be determined
E. None of these

Solution:

Let the present ages of X and Y be 5x and 6x years respectively.
Then, (5x + 7)/(6x + 7) = 6/7
7(5x + 7) = 6(6x + 7) => x = 7
X’s present age = 5x = 35 years.

8. Find the one which does not belong to that group?

A. 20
B. 42
C. 58
D. 72
E. 90

Solution:

20 = 42 + 4, 42 = 62 + 6, 58 = 72 + 9, 72 = 82 + 8 and 90 = 92 + 9.
20, 42, 72 and 90 can be expressed in n2 + n form but not 58.

9. A began business with Rs.45000 and was joined afterwards by B with Rs.5400. When did B join if the profits at the end of the year were divided in the ratio of 2:1?

A. 4 months

x = 5
12 -5 = 7

10. Fresh fruit contains 68 % water and dry fruit contains 20 % water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg of fresh fruits?

A. 32 kg
B. 40 kg
C. 52 kg
D. 80 kg

Solution:

Quantity of water in 100kg of fresh fruits =(68/100 × 100)kg
Quantity of pulp in it = (100 – 68)kg = 32 kg
Let the dry fruit be x kg
Water in it = (20/100 × x)kg = x/5 kg
Quantity of pulp in it = (x – x/5)kg = 4x/5 kg
Therefore, 4x/5 = 32 => x = 160/4 = 40 kg

11. The number of ways in which six boys and six girls can be seated in a row for a photograph so that no two girls sit together is -.

A. (6!)2
B. 6! * ⁷P₆
C. 2(6!)
D. 6! * 7
E. None of these

Solution:

We can initially arrange the six boys in 6! ways.
Having done this, now three are seven places and six girls to be arranged. This can be done in ⁷P₆ ways. Hence required number of ways = 6! * ⁷P₆

12. Two pipes A and B can separately fill a cistern in 10 and 15 minutes respectively. A person opens both the pipes together when the cistern should have been was full he finds the waste pipe open. He then closes the waste pipe and in another 4 minutes the cistern was full. In what time can the waste pipe empty the cistern when fill?

A. 7 min
B. 8 min
C. 9 min
D. 10 min

Solution:

1/10 + 1/15 = 1/6 * 4 = 2/3
1 – 2/3 = 1/3
1/10 + 1/15 – 1/x = 1/3
x = 8

13. Three 6 faced dice are thrown together. The probability that no two dice show the same number on them is -.

A. 7/12
B. 5/9
C. 1/36
D. 5/12
E. 8/9

Solution:

No two dice show same number would mean all the three faces should show different numbers. The first can fall in any one of the six ways. The second die can show a different number in five ways. The third should show a number that is different from the first and second. This can happen in four ways.
Thus 6 * 5 * 4 = 120 favourable cases.
The total cases are 6 * 6 * 6 = 216.
The probability = 120/216 = 5/9.

14. Find the smallest number which when increased by 5, divisible by 6, 9, 15, 20 and 24?

A. 344
B. 355
C. 366

A. 20
B. 30
C. 40
D. None of these

Solution:

Let the numbers be a, b and C. Then,
a2 + b2 + c2 = 138 and (ab + bc + ca) = 131
(a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca)
138 + 2 * 131 = 400
(a + b + c) = √400 = 20
