Question 1:Â The product of ages of Harris and Sharma is 240 .If twice the age of Sharma is more than Harris age by 4 years ,what is Sharma age in years?

a)Â 12

b)Â 20

c)Â 10

d)Â 14

Solution:

let age of sharma = x

let age of harris = y

xy = 240

2x = y+4

on solving these two equations

y = 20 or -24

age must be positive, so y = 20

x = 12

Question 2:Â The denominator of a fraction is 2 more than thrice itâ€™s numerator.If the numerator as well as denominator are increased by one,the fraction becomes â…“ .what was that the original fraction?

a)Â 2/8

b)Â 3/11

c)Â 4/14

d)Â 5/17

e)Â Cannot be determined

Solution:

Let the numerator = $x$

=> Denominator = $(3x+2)$

Fraction = $\frac{x}{3x+2}$

If the numerator as well as denominator are increased by one

=> $\frac{x+1}{3x+2+1}=\frac{1}{3}$

=> $\frac{x+1}{3x+3}=\frac{1}{3}$

=> $3x+3=3x+3$

It cannot be solved, thus $x$ can take any value and the fraction can be 2/8 , 3/11 , 4/14 ,….

=> Ans – (E)

Question 3:Â A group of 20 girls has average age of 12 years. Average of first 12 from the same group is 13 years and what is the average age of other 8 girls in the group?

a)Â 10

b)Â 11

c)Â 11.5

d)Â Cannot be determined

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Let the age of each of the girl in the group be $x_1,x_2,x_3,…..,x_{20}$ years

Average age of 20 girls = 12

=> $\frac{(x_1+x_2+x_3+…..+x_{20})}{20}=12$

=>Â $(x_1+x_2+x_3+…..+x_{20})=12 \times 20=240$ ————(i)

Average of first 12 girls = 13

=> $\frac{(x_1+x_2+x_2+….+x_{12})}{12}=13$

=>Â $(x_1+x_2+x_3+…..+x_{12})=13 \times 12=156$ ———–(ii)

Subtracting equation (ii) from (i)

=>Â $(x_1+x_2+x_3+…..+x_{20})$ $-$ $(x_1+x_2+x_3+…..+x_{12}) = (240-156)$

=> $(x_{13}+x_{14}+…..+x_{20})=84$

Dividing above equation by 8

=> $\frac{(x_{13}+x_{14}+……+x_{20})}{8}=\frac{84}{8} = 10.5$

=> Ans – (E)

Question 4:Â If the height of a triangle is decreased by 40% and itâ€™s base is increased by 40% , what will be the effect on its area?

a)Â No change

b)Â 16 % increase

c)Â 8% decrease

d)Â 16% decrease

e)Â None of these

Solution:

area of triangle = 1/2(base*height)

after decreasing height by 40%, new height = 0.6H

after increasing base by 40%, new base = 1.4B

now, area of triangle = 1/2(1.4B*0.6H) = 0.84(1/2*B*H)

Area decreased by 100-84%= 16%

so the answer is option D.

Question 5:Â 0ne-eighth of a number is 17.25. What will 73% of the number be ?

a)Â 100.74

b)Â 138.00

c)Â 96.42

d)Â 82.66

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Let the number be $8x$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{1}{8} * 8x = 17.25$

=> $x = 17.25$

$\therefore$ 73 % of the number = $\frac{73}{100} * 8x$

= 0.73 * 8 * 17.25 = 100.74

Question 6:Â What will be the the compound interest acquired on sum of Rs 12,000/- for 3 years at the rate of 10 % per annum ?

a)Â 2,652

b)Â 3,972

c)Â 3,960

d)Â 3852

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Principal amount = Rs. 12,000

Time period = 3 years and rate of interest = 10% under compound interest.

=>Â $C.I. = P [(1 + \frac{R}{100})^T – 1]$

= $12,000 [(1 + \frac{10}{100})^3 – 1]$

= $12,000 [(\frac{11}{10})^3 – 1] = 12,000 (\frac{1331 – 1000}{1000})$

= $12 \times 331 = Rs. 3,972$

Question 7:Â Sarita started a boutique investing an amount of Rs. 50,000. Six months later Neeta joined her with an amount of Rs. 80,000. At the end of one year they earned a profit of Rs. 18,000. What is Saritaâ€™s share in the profit?

a)Â Rs. 9000

b)Â Rs. 8000

c)Â Rs. 12000

d)Â Rs. 10000

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Amount invested by Sarita = Rs. 50,000 and amount invested by Neeta = Rs. 80,000

Ratio of amount invested by Sarita : Neeta = 5Â : 8

Time period in which Sarita invested = 12 months and Neeta = 6 months

Ratio of time periods of Sarita :Â Neeta = 2Â : 1

=> Ratio of profits earned by Sarita : Neeta = $(5 \times 2)$:$(8 \times 1)$

= 5Â : 4

Total profit earned = Rs. 18,000

$\therefore$Â Saritaâ€™s share in the profit = $\frac{5}{(5+4)} \times 18,000$

= $5 \times 2,000 = Rs. 10,000$

=> Ans – (D)

Question 8:Â P. Q and R have a certain amount of money with themselves. Q has 25% more than what P has, and R has ${1 \over 5}$th of what Q has. If P. Q and R together have Rs. 150, then how much money does P alone have? (in Rs.)

a)Â 40

b)Â 70

c)Â 80

d)Â 60

e)Â 50

Solution:

Let P has = $Rs. 100x$

=> Amount with Q = $100x + \frac{25}{100} \times 100x = Rs. 125x$

=> Amount with R = $\frac{1}{5} \times 125x = Rs. 25x$

Total amount together = $100x + 125x + 25x = 150$

=> $x = \frac{150}{250} = \frac{3}{5}$

=> $x = 0.6$

$\therefore$ Amount with P alone = $100 \times 0.6 = Rs. 60$

Question 9:Â 12 men can finish a project in 20 days. 18 women can finish the same project in 16 days and 24 children can finish it in 18 days. 8 women and 16 children worked for 9 days and then left. In how many days will 10 men complete the remaining project ?

a)Â $10\frac{1}{2}$

b)Â 10

c)Â 9

d)Â $11\frac{1}{2}$

e)Â $9\frac{1}{2}$

Solution:

12 men can finish the project in 20 days.

=> 1 day work of 1 man = $\frac{1}{12 \times 20} = \frac{1}{240}$

Similarly,Â => 1 day work of 1 woman = $\frac{1}{18 \times 16} = \frac{1}{288}$

=> 1 day work of 1 children = $\frac{1}{24 \times 18} = \frac{1}{432}$

8 women and 16 children worked for 9 days

=> Work done in 9 days = $9 \times (8 \times \frac{1}{288}) + (16 \times \frac{1}{432})$

= $9 \times (\frac{1}{36} + \frac{1}{27}) = 9 \times \frac{7}{108}$

= $\frac{7}{12}$

=> Work left = $1 – \frac{7}{12} = \frac{5}{12}$

$\therefore$ Number of days taken by 10 men to complete the remaining work

= $\frac{\frac{10}{240}}{\frac{5}{12}} = \frac{1}{24} \times \frac{12}{5} = \frac{1}{10}$

Thus, 10 men will complete the remaining the work in 10 days.

Question 10:Â What will come in the place of question mark (?) in the following series ?
2 Â 9 Â 28 Â 65 ?

a)Â 96

b)Â 106

c)Â 126

d)Â 130

e)Â None of these

Solution:

Each number is of the form $(n^3+1)$ where $n$ is a natural number

$1^3+1$ = 2

$2^3+1$ =Â 9

$3^3+1$ =Â 28

$4^3+1$ =Â 65

$5^3+1$ =Â 126

=> Ans – (C)
