**1. Two trains are running in opposite directions with the same speed. If the length of each train is 120 m and they cross each other in 12 sec, then the speed of each train is?**

A. 10

B. 18

C. 36

D. 72

**Answer:** Option C

**Solution:**

Let the speed of each train be x m/sec.

Then, relative speed of the two trains = 2x m/sec.

So, 2x = (120 + 120)/12 => x = 10

Speed of each train = 10 m/sec.

= 10 * 18/5 =- 36 km/hr.

**2. By selling 12 oranges for one rupee, a man loses 20%. How many for a rupee should he sell to get a gain of 20%?**

**Solution:**

He buys 12 oranges,

Then S.P = Rs. 1

Now, 80 : 1 :: 120 : X

X = 1 × 120/80 = 3/2 Rs. 3/2,

oranges sold = 12 Rs. 1,

oranges sold = (12 × 2/3) = 8

While A runs 100 m, B runs (100-10)=90 m and C runs (100-13)=87 m

i.e., when B runs 90 m, C runs 87 m

=> when B runs 180 m, C runs 8790×180= 174 m

Hence, in a 180 m race, B will beat C by (180-174)=6 m

C. 0.3

D. 0.4

E. 0.5

**Answer: **Option A

**Solution:**

As numerator is of the form a2 – b2 = (a + b) (a – b), so the given expression simplifying becomes

(0.92 – 0.82)/(0.9 + 0.8) (0.9 + 0.8) (0.9 – 0.8)/0.9 + 0.8 = 0.1**7. A man completes 30km of a journey at 6km/hr and the remaining 40km of the journey in 5 hours. His average speed for the whole journey is**

A. 6 4/11 km/hr

B. 7km/hr

C. 7 ½ km/hr

D. 8 km/hr

**Answer:** Option B

Average speed = 70/10km/hr = 7km/hr

**8. 3 men, 4 women and 6 children can complete a work in 7 days. A woman does double the work a man does and a child does half the work a man does. How many women alone can complete this work in 7 days?**

A. 7

B. 8

C. 12

D. Cannot be determined

E. None of these

**Answer: **Option A

**Solution:**

Let 1 woman’s 1 day work = x.

Then, 1 man’s 1 day work = x/2 and 1 child’s 1 day work x/4.

So, (3x/2 + 4x + + 6x/4) = 1/7

28x/4 = 1/7 => x = 1/49

1 woman alone can complete the work in 49 days.

So, to complete the work in 7 days, number of women required = 49/7 = 7.

B. 5000

C. 6000

D. 7000

**Answer:** Option C

**Solution:**

10 * 4/100 * 5 * 90/100 = 25/100 * 15/100 * 8/100 * x

10 * 20 * 90 = 15 * 2 * x => x = 6000

**Solution:**

From the last step it is clear that there are two alternating series of numbers. One in descending order and the other in ascending order.

When we go through input to step I, we find that the largest number because the first and remaining numbers shift rightward. In the next step the smallest number becomes the second and the rest shift rightward.

These two steps continue alternately untill the two alternate series are formed.

Step II: 298 12 128 36 212 185

Step III: 298 12 212 128 36 185

Step IV: 298 12 212 36 218 185
