SET -2

The questions 1-2 are based on the following data

6 people A,B,C,D,E and F sit around a table for dinner. Since A does not like C, he doesn't sit either opposite or

beside C.B and F always like to sit opposite each other.

1. If A is beside F then who is are the two neighbours of B?

(a) D and C

(b) E and C

(c) D and E

(d) Either (a) or (b)

Ans. (c)

2. If D is adjacent to F then who is adjacent to C?

(a) E and B

(b) D and A

(c) D and B

(d) either (a) or (c)

Ans.(d)

3. Complete the sequence A, E ,I ,M ,Q ,U , _ , _

(a) B, F

(b) Y, C

(c) G, I

(d) K, O

Ans.(b)

4. If the letters of the word "rachit" are arranged in all possible ways and these words are written out as in a dictionary,

what is the rank of the word "rachit".

(a) 485

(b) 480

(c) 478

(d) 481

Ans. (d)

5. Ravi's salary was reduced by 25%.Percentage increase to be effected to bring the salary to the original level is

(a) 20%

(b) 25%

(c) 33 1/3%

(d) 30%

Ans. (c)

Taking 100 Rs as salary

Salary reduced by 25 % so salary is reduced 100 x 0.25 =25

So present salary is 100-25 = 75 Rs.

To take it Original value

75 Rs = 100 (I take 75 as 100%)

100 Rs =?

100 x 100

-----------

75

= 133.33 %

Difference

= 133.33-100 % = 33.33 % = 33 1/3%

6. A and B can finish a piece of work in 20 days .B and C in 30 days and C and A in 40 days. In how many days

will A alone finish the job

(a) 48

(b) 34 2/7

(c) 44

(d) 45

Ans. (a)

(A+B)'s 1 day's work = 1/20

(B+C)'s 1 day's work = 1/30

(C+A)'s 1 day's work = 1/40

Adding above, 2(A+B+C)=(1/20)+(1/30)+(1/40)

=13/120

A+B+C =13/240

To get A's work,(A+B+C)-(B+C)=(13/240)-(1/30)

=5/240

Therefore A can finishes the work in 240/5 days .ie 48 days

7. How long will a train 100m long travelling at 72kmph take to overtake another train 200m long travelling at 54kmph ?

(a) 70sec

(a) 3/2

(b) 4

(c) 3

(d) 3/4

Ans. (a)

(2x - 1) (2x - 3) (2x - 5) (2x - 7) = 9

Let 2x - 4 = y

=> (y + 3) (y + 1) (y - 1) (y - 3) = 9

=> (y^2 - 1) (y^2 - 9) = 9

=> y^4 - 10y^2 + 9 = 9

=> y^2 (y^2 - 10) = 0

=> y = 0 or ± √(10)

=> 2x - 4 = ± √(10)

=> x = (1/2) [4 ± √(10)]

=> product of the irrational roots

= (1/2)^2 * [4 + √(10)] [4 - √(10)]

= (1/4) * 6

= 3/2.

(2x - 1) (2x - 3) (2x - 5) (2x - 7) = 9

Let 2x - 4 = y

=> (y + 3) (y + 1) (y - 1) (y - 3) = 9

=> (y^2 - 1) (y^2 - 9) = 9

=> y^4 - 10y^2 + 9 = 9

=> y^2 (y^2 - 10) = 0

=> y = 0 or ± √(10)

=> 2x - 4 = ± √(10)

=> x = (1/2) [4 ± √(10)]

=> product of the irrational roots

= (1/2)^2 * [4 + √(10)] [4 - √(10)]

= (1/4) * 6

= 3/2.

9. The total population of a village is 5000. The number of males and females increases by 10% and 15% respectively

and consequently the population of the village becomes 5600. what was the number of males in the village ?

A) 2000 B) 2500 C) 3000 D) 4000

Ans : C

10. Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg

of fresh fruits ?

A) 32 kg B) 40 kg C) 52 kg D) 80 kg

Ans : B

A large watermelon weighs 20 kg with 96% of its weight being water. It is allowed to stand in the sun and some of the water evaporates so that only 95% of its weight is water. Its reduced weight will be :

(a) 16 kg

(b) 16.5 kg

(c) 17 kg

(d) 18 kg

the water melon weighs 20 kg

96% is water.

so, weight of dry water melon = 4% of 20

= 4/5 kg

when the water evaporates, mass of water melon (excluding water) will not reduce and remain 4/5 kg.

only weight of water will reduce.

let the new total weight be x

since, 95% is water,

so, weight of dry water melon will constitute only 5%.

ie,

5% of x = 4/5

=> x=16

what is the rank of the word "rachit".

(a) 485

(b) 480

(c) 478

(d) 481

Ans. (d)

5. Ravi's salary was reduced by 25%.Percentage increase to be effected to bring the salary to the original level is

(a) 20%

(b) 25%

(c) 33 1/3%

(d) 30%

Ans. (c)

Taking 100 Rs as salary

Salary reduced by 25 % so salary is reduced 100 x 0.25 =25

So present salary is 100-25 = 75 Rs.

To take it Original value

75 Rs = 100 (I take 75 as 100%)

100 Rs =?

100 x 100

-----------

75

= 133.33 %

Difference

= 133.33-100 % = 33.33 % = 33 1/3%

6. A and B can finish a piece of work in 20 days .B and C in 30 days and C and A in 40 days. In how many days

will A alone finish the job

(a) 48

(b) 34 2/7

(c) 44

(d) 45

Ans. (a)

(A+B)'s 1 day's work = 1/20

(B+C)'s 1 day's work = 1/30

(C+A)'s 1 day's work = 1/40

Adding above, 2(A+B+C)=(1/20)+(1/30)+(1/40)

=13/120

A+B+C =13/240

To get A's work,(A+B+C)-(B+C)=(13/240)-(1/30)

=5/240

Therefore A can finishes the work in 240/5 days .ie 48 days

7. How long will a train 100m long travelling at 72kmph take to overtake another train 200m long travelling at 54kmph ?

(a) 3/2

(b) 4

(c) 3

(d) 3/4

Ans. (a)

(2x - 1) (2x - 3) (2x - 5) (2x - 7) = 9

Let 2x - 4 = y

=> (y + 3) (y + 1) (y - 1) (y - 3) = 9

=> (y^2 - 1) (y^2 - 9) = 9

=> y^4 - 10y^2 + 9 = 9

=> y^2 (y^2 - 10) = 0

=> y = 0 or ± √(10)

=> 2x - 4 = ± √(10)

=> x = (1/2) [4 ± √(10)]

=> product of the irrational roots

= (1/2)^2 * [4 + √(10)] [4 - √(10)]

= (1/4) * 6

= 3/2.

(2x - 1) (2x - 3) (2x - 5) (2x - 7) = 9

Let 2x - 4 = y

=> (y + 3) (y + 1) (y - 1) (y - 3) = 9

=> (y^2 - 1) (y^2 - 9) = 9

=> y^4 - 10y^2 + 9 = 9

=> y^2 (y^2 - 10) = 0

=> y = 0 or ± √(10)

=> 2x - 4 = ± √(10)

=> x = (1/2) [4 ± √(10)]

=> product of the irrational roots

= (1/2)^2 * [4 + √(10)] [4 - √(10)]

= (1/4) * 6

= 3/2.

9. The total population of a village is 5000. The number of males and females increases by 10% and 15% respectively

10. Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg

of fresh fruits ?

A) 32 kg B) 40 kg C) 52 kg D) 80 kg

Ans : B

A large watermelon weighs 20 kg with 96% of its weight being water. It is allowed to stand in the sun and some of the water evaporates so that only 95% of its weight is water. Its reduced weight will be :

(a) 16 kg

(b) 16.5 kg

(c) 17 kg

(d) 18 kg

the water melon weighs 20 kg

96% is water.

so, weight of dry water melon = 4% of 20

= 4/5 kg

when the water evaporates, mass of water melon (excluding water) will not reduce and remain 4/5 kg.

only weight of water will reduce.

let the new total weight be x

since, 95% is water,

so, weight of dry water melon will constitute only 5%.

ie,

5% of x = 4/5

=> x=16
