Amar lives to the north of Akbar and Tony lives to the east of Akbar. The distance between the house of Amar and Akbar equals to the sum of their ages in years. The same holds for the distance between the house of 'Akbar and Tony' and 'Amar and Tony' with the respective distance being equal to the sums of the respective ages. The product of the Amar's and Tony's age is 6 times Akbar's age. All distances and ages are whole numbers. The sum of the ages of all three of them is :

(A). (C).

6 year 16 year

(B). (D).

10 year Data insufficient

Correct Answer

Let the age of Amar, Akbar, Tony be x , y and z years respectively from the given information we can construct the figure. Using Pythagoras

Explanation (x + y)2 + (y + z)2 = (x + z)2


2xy + 2y2 + 2yz = 2xz y (x + y + z) =xz Given that xz = 6y From (1) x+y+z =6 --(1)

Sum of their ages = x + y + z = 6 years (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

PASSAGE
A man went to market with Rs. 100 in hand. He bought 3 kgs potatoes, y kgs of tomatoes and 4 kgs of cucumber. The amount spent on tomatoes was double than that spent on cucumbers and also is same as one third of that spent on potatoes. After the shopping spree, the man was left with Rs. 10 in his pocket. The sum of the rates of tomatoes, potatoes and cucumber is Rs. 27.5.

3.

Which of the following statements is true ?

(A). (C).

The ratio of rate of tomatoes to rate of potatoes 1 : 4 The ratio of rate of cucumber to rate of potatoes 8 : 1

(B). (D).

The ratio of rate of tomatoes to rate of cucumber 1 : 8 None of these

Correct Answer

A
Let 'p' , 't' and 'c' be the rates of potatoes , tomatoes , and cucumber. 3p + yt + 4c = 90 -(1)

According to question yt = 2 (4c) and yt = 3p / 3 From (1) and (2) we get, -(2)

Explanation 3p + p + p/2 = 90
c = 2.5

p = 20

yt = 20

Ratio of c / p = 2.5 / 20 = 1 / 8 Again p + c + t = 27.5 Substitute the values of p & c to get t = 5 t/p=1/4 (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

4.

If the man initially had Rs. 82, instead of Rs. 100, when he went to market then, the ratio of the rate of tomatoes to the rate of cucumber will be :

(A). (C).

19 : 4 4 : 19

(B). (D).

2:3 None of these

Correct Answer

A
3p + p + p/2 = 72 c = p/8 = 2 p = 16

Explanation
p + c + t = 27.5 t/c = 9.5/2 = 19/4 (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0). t = 9.5

While travelling towards goa from Mumbai, Ganesh saw milestone with two digits indicating the distance of that point from Mumbai. After travelling some distance, he saw another milestone with the same digits but in reverse order. Further travelling the same distance that he had travelled from the 1st milestone to the 2nd milestone, he saw another milestone with a 3-digit number that had the same digits but also had a zero in it. But the order of the digits was different. His speed was uniform through out the journey. The distance between the 3rd and 1st milestone is :

(A). (C).

90 km 80 km

(B). (D).

100 km 110 km

Correct Answer

A
Let's consider the two digit no the first milestone as 10x + y. Then the no.on second milestone is 10y + x. The distance between 3rd , 2nd and 1st milestone are same Now on the third milestone again he found the same digits. Since the difference between 1st and 2nd number can not be greater than hundred, hence the 3rd number must lie between 100 and 200. So the no. has to be either 100x + y or 100x + 10y Taking 100x + y 10y + x - (10x + y) = 100x + y - (10y + x) y = 6x only one pair as x = 1 and y = 6 hence , the required no. are 16 , 61 and 106 and the answer is 106 - 16 90 Km. Taking 100x + 10y , we get y = 12x, which can not be true. (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

A couple gave birth to their son a year after their marriage. At the time of marriage, the sum of the ages of that couple was equal to the current age of the lady. When their son was born, the mother's age was 2 less than the current age of the son. The ratio of current ages of mother and father is 25/27. The current age of the son is :

(A). (C).

28 years 24 years

(B). (D).

26 years 25 years

http://www.100percentile.com/iitjee/testpaper.do?actionName=previewTest&testPaperId... 12/22/2010

Correct Answer

B
Let the current age of father , mother and son be x , y , z . Now According to question [x - (z + 1) ] + [y - (z + 1) ] = y ..........(1) and y - z = z - 2 ..................(2) and (y/x) = 25/27 (given) ........... (3) Solving (1) (2) and (3) we get x = 54 , y = 50 , z = 26 years (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

B and C touch each other at F and touch the greater circle at D and E respectively. The perimeter of is :

(A). (C).

2x cm 3x cm

(B). (D).

3.5x cm 4x cm

Correct Answer

Explanation
For the smaller circles , BF = BD = CE = CF (radius) Perimeter of = AB + BC + AC = AB + BF + FC + AC = AB + BD + CE + AC = AD + AE = 2x (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

13. A group of 4 people Amit, Raghu, Neel and Nikhil, arrived in a car at a friend house. The group was forced to

park around the corner due to lack of parking space. It was raining heavily and group had only one umbrella. They decided to share it. Two persons would go at a time to the friend's house and one of them would come back with the umbrella. The process would be repeated until all four people reached the friend's house. If Amit, Raghu, Neel and Nikhil take 1, 2, 5 and 10 minutes respectively at their fastest speed to go the friend's house, the minimum time required for all of them to reach the friend's house is :

Explanation

PASSAGE
The figure above shows the race track in which ABCD is a square of side 21 km and MQR is an isosceles triangle. One can travel along the square at the speed of 5 kmph, along the circle at the speed of 4 kmph and along the triangle at 3 kmph. While travelling along these tracks one has to change tracks, at a point where two or three intersect each other.

14. In a race, Amar, Bala and Chirag start from point Q taking the triangular, circular and square tracks in the same
direction respectively. If they have to reach point Q again in the minimum possible time and use each type of track at least once, who wins the race ?
