A. Kept unchanged
B. Increased by 25%
C. Increased by 20%
D. Reduced by 20%

Solution:

Let the length be x metres and breadth be y metres
Then it’s area =(xy)m2
New length =(125/100 x)m =(5x/4)m.
Let the new breadth be 2 metres
Then xy 5x/4 x 2 => 2 = 4/5 y
Decreased in width =(y -4/5 y) = y/5 metres
Decreased % in width =(y/5 x 1/y x 100)% = 20%

2. The average age of seven persons sitting in a row facing east is 28 years. If the average age of the first three persons is 21 years and the average age of the last three persons is 34 years, then find the age of the person sitting in the middle of the row?

A. 30 Years
B. 31 years
C. 26 years
D. 33 years
E. None of these

Solution:

Total age seven persons = (28 * 7)years
Total age of the first three persons and the last three persons are (21 * 3) years and (34 * 3) years respectively.
Age of the person sitting in the middle of the row = 28 * 7 – 21 * 3 – 34 * 3 = 196 – 63 – 102 = 31 years.

3. A boat goes 24 km downstream in 10 hours, it takes 2 hours more to cover the same distance against the stream. What is the speed of the boat in still water?

A. 2km/hr
B. 2.8 km/hr
C. 4 km/hr
D. 4.2 km/hr
E. None of these

Solution:

Speed downstream = 24/10 km/hr = 2.4 km/hr
Speed upstream = 24/12 km/hr = 2 km/hr
Speed of the boat in still water = ½ (2.4 +2)km/hr = 2.2 km/hr

4. The compound interest on Rs. 30,000 at 7% per annum is Rs. 4347. The period(in years) is?

A. 2
B. 2 1/2
C. 3
D. 4

Solution:

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.

5. What will be the cost of building a fence around a square plot with area equal to 289 sq ft, if the price per foot of building the fence is Rs. 58?

A. Rs. 3944
B. Rs. 3828
C. Rs. 4176
D. Cannot be determined
E. None of these

Solution:

Let the side of the square plot be a ft.
a2 = 289 => a = 17
Length of the fence = Perimeter of the plot = 4a = 68 ft.
Cost of building the fence = 68 * 58 = Rs. 3944.

6. Find the ratio in which wheat of inferior quality (Rs.14/kg. be mixed with wheat of superior quality (Rs.28/kg. so that the shopkeeper
gains Rs.2 by selling the resulting mixture at Rs.20/kg.

A. 1 : 3
B. 5 : 2
C. 3 : 4
D. 2 : 5

Solution:

Let the resulting mixture be 1 kg, and x kg be the amount of wheat of inferior quality.
Therefore, (1-x.kg is the amount of wheat of superior quality.
As the shopkeeper gains Rs.2, the cost of the mixture is Rs.18
14*x + 28*(1-x. = 18
14x – 28x + 28 = 18
14x = 10
x = 5/7
(1 – x. = 2/7
x : (1-x. = 5/7 : 2/7
= 5 : 2

10. The length of a rectangle is increased by 10 % and breadth decreased by 10 % Then the area of a new rectangle is:

A. neither increased nor decreased
B. increased by 1 %
C. decreased by 1 %
D. decreased by 10 %

Solution:

Let original length = l units and original breadth = b units
Then original Area = lb sq. Units
New length = (110/100 l) units = (11 l)/10 units
New breadth = (90/100 b) units = (9 l)/10 units
New area = (11l/10 × 9b/10) sq. Units = 99lb/100 sq. units
Decrease in area = (lb- 99lb/100)sq units = lb/100 sq. units
Decrease in area = (lb/100 × 1/lb ×100) % = 1 %
Decrease by = 1 %

Two men, three women and one child can be selected in ⁴C₂ * ⁶C₃ * ⁵C₁ ways
= (4 * 3)/(2 * 1) * (6 * 5 * 4)/(3 * 2) * 5
= 600 ways.

A. 12 min
B. 15 min
C. 25 min
D. 50 min

Solution:

Part filled by A in 1 min. = 1/20
Part filled by B in 1 min. = 1/30
part filled by (A + B) in 1 min. = 1/20 + 1/30 = 1/12.
Both the pipes can fill the tank in 12 minutes.

A. 12
B. 28
C. 160
D. 180

Solution:

Let the numbers be x and y.
Then, x + y = 20 and x – y = 8
x2 – y2 = (x + y)(x – y) = 20 * 8 = 160.

6. Which of the following best completes the passage below?
One tax-reform proposal that has gained increasing support in recent years is the flat tax, which would impose a uniform tax rate on incomes at every level. Opponents of the flat tax say that a progressive tax system, which levies a higher rate of taxes on higher-income taxpayers, is fairer, placing the greater burden on those better able to bear it. However, the present crazy quilt of tax deductions, exemptions, credits, and loopholes benefits primarily the high-income taxpayer, who is consequently able to reduce his or her effective tax rate, often to a level below that paid by the lower-income taxpayer. Therefore, ______

A. higher-income taxpayers are likely to lend their support to the flat-tax proposal now being considered by Congress
B. a flat-tax system that allowed no deductions or exemptions would substantially increase actual government revenues
C. the lower-income taxpayer might well be penalized by the institution of a flat-tax system in this country

8. a £ b means a is less than or equal to b.
a \$ b means a is greater than or equal to b.
a ? b means a is less than b.
a ? b means a is greater than b.
a ? b means a is equal to b.

Statement:      a ? b, b ? c, c £ d

Conclusions:   I. d ? b
II. b ? d

A. if only conclusion (I) follows
B. if only conclusion (II) follows
C. if both conclusions (I) and (II) follows
D. if neither (I) nor (II) follows
E. if either conclusion (I) or (II) follows

Solution:

a £ b means a = b
a \$ b means a = b
a ? b means a < b
a ? b means a > b
a ? b means a = b

The Statement is (i) a ? b (ii) b ? C
(iii) c \$ d
i.e. a > b, b = c and c = d
=> a > b = c = d
Conclusion I: d ? b => d < b or b < d
cannot be concluded
Hence, (I) does not follow.
Conclusion II: b ? d => b =d cannot be concluded.
Hence, (II) does not follow.
But one of them will always be true.
