A. 45 

B. 50 

C. 54 

D. 60

Answer: Option D
Distance covered in 72 sec = (300+900)m 
Speed = (1200/72)m/sec 
=(50/3) m/sec 
= (50/3 × 18/5) km/hr = 60 km/hr.
2. If two mixers and one T.V cost Rs. 7000. While two T.V s and one mixer cost Rs. 9800. The value of one T.V is:
A. Rs. 2800 
B. Rs. 2100 
C. Rs. 4200 
D. Rs. 8400
Answer: Option C
2X + Y = 7000 
 X + 2Y = 9800 
 Solving (i) and (ii), we get Y = 4200
3. In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3 : 4. A has a start of 140 m. Then, A wins by:
A. 60 m
B. 20 m
C. 40 m
D. 10 m
Answer: Option B

Solution :
To reach the winning point , A will have to cover a distance of 500 – 140= 360 metre
ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3 : 4
i.e., when A covers 3 metre, B covers 4 metre.
=> When A covers 360 metre, B covers 43×360 = 480 metre.
Remaining distance B have to cover = 500-480= 20 metre
=> A wins by 20 metre
4. In a bag, there are coins of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p in the ratio of 1:2:3. If there are Rs. 30 in all, how many 5 p coins are there?
A. 50 
B. 100 
C. 150 
D. 200
Answer: Option C
Let the number of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p coins be x, 2x and 3x respectively.
Then, sum of their values = [25x/100 + (10 * 2x)/100 + (5 * 3x)/100] = Rs. 60x/100
60x/100 = 30 => x = 50.
Hence, the number of 5 p coins = 3 * 50 = 150.
5. Kruti took a loan at simple interest at 6 % in the first year with an increase of 0.5 % in each subsequent year. She paid Rs. 3375 as interest after 4 years. How much loan did she take?
A. Rs.12500 
B. Rs.15800 
C. Rs.33250 
D. Cannot be determined
Answer: Option A
Let the loan taken be Rs. X , then 
X × 6/100 × 1 + X × 6.5/100 × 1 + X × 7/100 × 1 + X × 7.5/100 × 1 = 3375 
=> (6+ 6.5 +7 +7.5) × X/100 = 3375 
=> X = (3375 × 100/27) = 12500

A. 5 days 
B. 7 5/6 days 
C. 10 days 
D. 15 2/3 days
Answer: Option C
(A + B)’s 1 day work = 1/12;
(B + C)’s 1 day work = 1/15;
(A + C)’s 1 day work = 1/20
Adding, we get: 2(A + B + C)’s 1 day work = (1/12 + 1/15 + 1/20) = 1/5
(A + B + C)’s 1 day work = 1/10
So, A, B and C together can complete the work in 10 days.

The vowels (EAI) can be arranged among themselves in 3! = 6 ways.
 Required number of ways = (120 x 6) = 720.
