**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

For any given number, that can be represented as $ A^{x} \times B ^ {y} $, etc

The number of factors is denoted by (x+1) x ( y+1), etc

360 = $ 2 ^ {3} \times 3 ^ {2} \times 5^ {1}$

So the number of factors = (3 +1) x (2+ 1) (1+ 1) = 4x3x2 = 24

For 240, it is $ 2 ^ {4} \times 3 ^ {1} \times 5^ {1}$

Number of factors = 5 x 2 x 2 = 20 only

**2) Answer (B)**

There is an assumption in the question that there are only two candidates participating in the election. One candidate got 40% votes and the other candidate got 60% votes. The difference is 20% votes which are 298. If 298 votes are 20%, 100% is how much.

= 298/20% = 1490

**3) Answer (B)**

Let the third number be x. So, the first number is .7x

The second number is .63x

So, the second number is less than the first number by .7 ie 10% of the first number.

**4) Answer (B)**

If we organise above numbers in ascending order then we will get following sequence:

31,55.53,56,59.61,69.

There are total 5 numbers present in the series.

So,for an odd number of series median would be the middle term of the series.

Here middle term in the series is 56.

So,median would be 56.

B is correct choice.

**5) Answer (D)**

It is the property of arithmetic mean

If we increase variable by same no. that is any constant k then the mean will also be increase by k

For eg.

X x+2

1 3

2 4

3 5

4 6

5 7

— —

15 25

— —

Mean = $15\div 5$=3

Mean for x+2= $25\div 5$=5

so in this question

Mean =35

Increased no. =2

Then increased mean = 37

**6) Answer (C)**

Speed of the train A = 72 * 5 /18 = 20 m/s

Speed of train B = 108 * 5/18 = 30 m/s

Total time to cross each other = total distance / total speed

= 300/50 = 6 seconds

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the distance be d.

D/10 = T+ 1/10

D/12 = T – 1/10

So, D = 12 kilometers.

**8) Answer (D)**

10 people can build a wall in 8 days

80 people can build a wall in 1 day

160 people can build a wall in half day.

**9) Answer (A)**

90 kmph = 90 * 5 /18 = 25 m/s

(150 + x ) / 26 = 25

So, x = 500 mts

**10) Answer (C)**

(l – 5)(b+3) = lb – 9 …. (1)

(l+ 3)(b+2) = lb + 67 …… (2)

(1) => lb – 5b + 3l -15 = lb – 9

or 3l – 5b = 6

(2) = > lb + 3b + 2l + 6 = lb + 67

or 2l + 3b = 61

from these equations, l = 17 m

**11) Answer (A)**

The area of the bigger rectangle is 18 x 13

The are of the smaller rectangle is 16 x 11

The required value is 18 x 13 – 16 x 11 = 58 sq.m

**12) Answer (C)**

Cos 90 = 0

sin 90 = 1

So, the given expression is 0 – 1 = -1

**13) Answer (C)**

Let the equal side be x.

x + x + x + 20 = 200

x = 60

Length of third side = 80

So, the answer would be option c)80.

**14) Answer (A)**

From the given information, Below is the figure formed.

From the figure,We can say $ Sin 30 = \frac{height of wall}{height of ladder} $

=> $ \frac{1}{2}=\frac{height of wall}{20} $

=> height of wall = 10m

**15) Answer (B)**

A’s profit = 10,000 x 9 x r/100

B’s profit = 18000 x t x r/100

But the profits are same so,

10,000 x 9 x r/100 = 18000 x t x r/100

so, t = 5 months.
