A. 110m
B. 112m
C. 120cm
D. 135m

Solution:

let the diagonal be d meters, then ½ d2 =6050

2. The average of 20 numbers is zero. Of them, at the most, how many may be greater than zero?

A. 0
B. 1
C. 10
D. 19

Solution:

Average of 20 numbers = 0
Sum of 20 numbers = (0 * 20) = 0
It is quite possible that 19 of these numbers may be positive and if their sum is a, then 20th number is (-a).

3. A man whose speed is 4.5 kmph in still water rows to a certain upstream point and back to the starting point in a river which flows at 1.5 kmph, find his average speed for the total journey?

Solution:

Difference in C.I. and S.I for 2 years = (696.30 – 660) = Rs. 36.30.
S.I for one year = Rs. 330.
S.I. on Rs. 330 for 1 year = Rs. 36.30
Rate = (100 * 36.30)/(330 * 1) = 11%

Total area = (30 × 15) cm2 = 450 cm2
Area used = [(30 – 1.25 × 2) × (15 – 2.5 × 2)]
=(27.5 × 10) cm2 = 275 cm2
Percentage of area used = [(275/450) × 100]% = 61.1%~60%(approx..

6.   A mixture of two food items has a salt to sugar ratio of 7 : 32. The ratio of salt to sugar is 2 : 11 and 5 : 21, in the two individual types of food items. In what proportion are the 2 food items mixed?

A. 24
B. 27
C. 40
D. Cannot be determined
E. None of these

Solution:

Let the present ages of Sameer and Anand be 5x and 4x years respectively.
Then, (5x + 3)/(4x + 3) = 11/9
9(5x + 3) = 11(4x + 3) => x = 6
Anand’s present age = 4x = 24 years.

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

A. 30
B. 630
C. 10
D. 520
E. 130

Solution:

30 = 33 + 3, 630 = 54 + 5, 10 = 23 + 2, 520 = 83 + 8 and 130 = 53 + 5.
30, 10, 130 and 520 can be expressed as n3 + n but not 630.

B. Rs.185
C. Rs.215

Solution:

12*8 :16*9 = 18*6
8: 12: 9
9/29 * 870 = 270

10. The quality of water that should be added to reduce 9 ml. Lotion containing 50 % alcohol to a lotion containing 30 % alcohol is

A. 3 ml
B. 4 ml
C. 5 ml
D. 6 ml

Solution:

Alcohol in 9 ml lotion = (50/100 × 9)ml = 4.5ml
Water in it = (9 – 4.5)ml = 4.5ml
Let x ml of water be added to it, then 4.5/9+x × 100 = 30
=> 4.5/9+x = 30/100 = 3/10
=> 3(9+x) = 45 => 27 + 3x = 45
=> 3x = 18
=> x = 6
Water to be added = 6 ml

11. How many four digit numbers can be formed using the digits {1, 3, 4, 5, 7,9}(repetition of digits is not allowed)?

A. 5/9
B. 5/12
C. 1/36
D. 7/12
E. 4/9

Solution:

Using question number 11 and 12, we get the probability as
1 – (1/36 + 5/9) = 5/12

14. Find the greatest 4-digit number exactly divisible by 3, 4 and 5?

A. 9985
B. 9960
C. 9957
D. 9975

Solution:

Greatest 4-digit number is 9999. LCM of 3, 4 and 5 is 60. Dividing 9999 with 60, we get remainder 39. Thus, the required number is 9999 – 39 = 9960.

15. In a pair of fractions, fraction A is twice the fraction B and the product of two fractions is 2/25. What is the value of fraction A?

A. 1/5
B. 1/25
C. 2/5

Solution:

A = 2B => B = 1/2 A, so, AB = 2/25
1/2 A2 = 2/25
A2 = 4/25
A = 2/5
