##### 2. Question

The bus fare for two persons for travelling between Agra and Aligarh id four-thirds the train fare between the same places for one person. The total fare paid by 6 persons travelling by bus and 8 persons travelling by train between the two places is Rs.1512. Find the train fare between the two places for one person?

CorrectLet the train fare between the two places for one person be Rs.t

Bus fare between the two places for two persons Rs.4/3 t

=> 6/2 (4/3 t) + 8(t) = 1512

=> 12t = 1512 => t = 126.IncorrectLet the train fare between the two places for one person be Rs.t

Bus fare between the two places for two persons Rs.4/3 t

=> 6/2 (4/3 t) + 8(t) = 1512

=> 12t = 1512 => t = 126. - Question 3 of 50
##### 3. Question

A bag contains five white and four red balls. Two balls are picked at random from the bag. What is the probability that they both are different color?

We select one white ball and one red ball from five white balls and four red balls. This can be done ⁵C₁ . ⁴C₁ ways.

The required probability = (5 * 4)/⁹C₂ = 20/36 = 5/9IncorrectTwo balls can be picked from nine balls in ⁹C₂ ways.

We select one white ball and one red ball from five white balls and four red balls. This can be done ⁵C₁ . ⁴C₁ ways.

The required probability = (5 * 4)/⁹C₂ = 20/36 = 5/9 - Question 4 of 50
##### 4. Question

On dividing 2272 as well as 875 by 3-digit number N, we get the same remainder. The sum of the digits of N is:

CorrectClearly, (2272 – 875) = 1397, is exactly divisible by N.

Now. 1397 = 11 * 127

The required 3-digit number is 127, the sum of whose digit is 10.IncorrectClearly, (2272 – 875) = 1397, is exactly divisible by N.

Now. 1397 = 11 * 127

The required 3-digit number is 127, the sum of whose digit is 10. - Question 5 of 50
##### 5. Question

If Re.1 amounts to Rs.9 over a period of 20 years. What is the rate of simple interest?

##### 7. Question

Two pipes A and B can fill a cistern in 37 1/2 minutes and 45 minutes respectively. Both pipes are opened. The cistern will be filled in just half an hour, if the pipe B is turned off after?

CorrectLet B be turned off after x minutes. Then, part filled by (A + B) in x min + part filled by A in (30 – x) min = 1.

x(2/75 + 1/45) + (30- x) 2/75 = 1

11x + 180 – 6x = 225 => x = 9IncorrectLet B be turned off after x minutes. Then, part filled by (A + B) in x min + part filled by A in (30 – x) min = 1.

x(2/75 + 1/45) + (30- x) 2/75 = 1

11x + 180 – 6x = 225 => x = 9 - Question 8 of 50

=> 50m + 90w = 48w + 96 w => 2m = 6w => 1m = 3w 5m + 9w = 5m + 3m = 8m

8 men can do the work in 10 days.

3m +3w = 3m + 1w = 4m

So, 4 men can do the work in (10 * 8)/4 = 20 days.Incorrect(5m + 9w)10 = (6m + 12w)8

=> 50m + 90w = 48w + 96 w => 2m = 6w => 1m = 3w 5m + 9w = 5m + 3m = 8m

8 men can do the work in 10 days.

##### 40. Question

Rajan got married 8 years ago. His present age is 6/5 times his age at the time of his marriage. Rajan’s sister was 10 years younger to him at the time of his marriage. The age of Rajan’s sister is:

CorrectLet Rajan’s present age be x years.

Then, his age at the time of marriage = (x – 8) years.

x = 6/5 (x – 8)

5x = 6x – 48 => x = 48

Rajan’s sister’s age at the time of his marriage = (x – 8) – 10 = 30 years.

Rajan’s sister’s present age = (30 + 8) = 38 years.IncorrectLet Rajan’s present age be x years.

CorrectWork done by A and B in the first two hours, working alternately = First hour A + Second hour B = 1/4 + 1/12 = 1/3.

Total time required to complete the work = 2 * 3 = 6 days.IncorrectWork done by A and B in the first two hours, working alternately = First hour A + Second hour B = 1/4 + 1/12 = 1/3.

##### 43. Question

A man could buy a certain number of notebooks for Rs.300. If each notebook cost is Rs.5 more, he could have bought 10 notebooks less for the same amount. Find the price of each notebook?

CorrectLet the price of each note book be Rs.x.

Let the number of note books which can be brought for Rs.300 each at a price of Rs.x be y.

Hence xy = 300

=> y = 300/x

(x + 5)(y – 10) = 300 => xy + 5y – 10x – 50 = xy

=>5(300/x) – 10x – 50 = 0 => -150 + x^{2}+ 5x = 0

multiplying both sides by -1/10x

=> x^{2}+ 15x – 10x – 150 = 0

=> x(x + 15) – 10(x + 15) = 0

=> x = 10 or -15

As x>0, x = 10.IncorrectLet the price of each note book be Rs.x.

##### 44. Question

A tank is filled by three pipes with uniform flow. The first two pipes operating simultaneously fill the tank in the same during which the tank is filled by the third pipe alone. The second pipe fills the tank 5 hours faster than the first pipe and 4 hours slower than the third pipe. The time required by the first pipe is?

CorrectSuppose, first pipe alone takes x hours to fill the tank. Then, second and third pipes will take (x – 5) and (x – 9) hours respectively to fill the tank.

1/x + 1/(x – 5) = 1/(x – 9)

(2x – 5)(x – 9) = x(x – 5)

x^{2}– 18x + 45 = 0

(x- 15)(x – 3) = 0 => x = 15IncorrectSuppose, first pipe alone takes x hours to fill the tank. Then, second and third pipes will take (x – 5) and (x – 9) hours respectively to fill the tank.

(2x – 5)(x – 9) = x(x – 5)

##### 46. Question

Salaries of Ravi and Sumit are in the ratio 2:3. If the salary of each is increased by Rs. 4000, the new ratio becomes 40:57. What is Sumit’s present salary?

CorrectLet the original salaries of Ravi and Sumit be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively.

Then, (2x + 4000)/(3x + 4000) = 40/57

6x = 68000 => 3x = 34000

Sumit’s present salary = (3x + 4000) = 34000 + 4000 = Rs. 38,000.IncorrectLet the original salaries of Ravi and Sumit be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively.

Then, (2x + 4000)/(3x + 4000) = 40/57

Sumit’s present salary = (3x + 4000) = 34000 + 4000 = Rs. 38,000. - Question 47 of 50
##### 47. Question

A question paper consists of five problems, each problem having three internal choices. In how many ways can a candidate attempt one or more problems?

CorrectGiven that, the question paper consists of five problems. For each problem, one or two or three or none of the choices can be attempted.

Hence, the required number of ways = 4^{5}– 1.

##### 49. Question

A man can swim in still water at 4.5 km/h, but takes twice as long to swim upstream than downstream. The speed of the stream is?

CorrectM = 4.5

S = x

DS = 4.5 + x

US = 4.5 + x

4.5 + x = (4.5 – x)2

4.5 + x = 9 -2x

3x = 4.5

x = 1.5IncorrectM = 4.5

S = x

DS = 4.5 + x

US = 4.5 + x

4.5 + x = (4.5 – x)2

4.5 + x = 9 -2x

##### 50. Question

A man gains 20% by selling an article for a certain price. If the sells it at double the price, the percentage of profit will be:

CorrectLet C.P. = Rs. x.

Then, S.P. = Rs. (12% of x) = Rs. 6x/5

New S.P. = 2 * 6x/5 = Rs. 12x/5

Profit = 12x/5 – x = Rs. 7x/5

Profit = 7x/5 * 1/x * 100 = 140%.IncorrectLet C.P. = Rs. x.

Then, S.P. = Rs. (12% of x) = Rs. 6x/5

New S.P. = 2 * 6x/5 = Rs. 12x/5

Profit = 12x/5 – x = Rs. 7x/5

Profit = 7x/5 * 1/x * 100 = 140%.
