30 km/h and the rest by cycle at 10 km/h. The average speed of the tourist in km/h during

his entire journey is

A. 36 B. 30 C.24 D. 18

Let total distance be D

Total Time = D(1/2*60 + 1/4*30 + 1/4*10)

= D/24 Average Speed = Total distance / Total time = 24

2) A transporter receives the same number of orders each day. Currently, he has some pending

orders (backlog) to be shipped. If he uses 7 trucks, then at the end of the 4th day he can clear

all the orders. Alternatively, if he uses only 3 trucks, then all the orders are cleared at the end

of the 10th day. What is the minimum number of trucks required so that there will be no

pending order at the end of the 5th day?

A. 4 B. 5 C. 6 D. 7

Let each truck can take at most x units. Let the daily order be y and let backlog be z.

7*4*x = 4y + z

3*10*x = 10y + z

We need value of (5y + z)/5 in terms of x.

We can get value of y by subtracting first from second

6y = 2x

y = x/3

We can get value of z by substituting value of y in first equation

4y + z = 28x

4(x/3) + z = 28x

z = (80/3)x

So the value of (5y + z)/5 is 5*(x/3) + (80/3)x which is 17/3

So almost 6 days needed.

3) 5 skilled workers can build a wall in 20 days: 8 semi-skilled workers can build a wall in

25 days; 10 unskilled workers can build a wall in 30 days. If a team has 2 skilled, 6 semi-

skilled and 5 unskilled workers, how long will it take to build the wall?

A. 20 B.10 C.16 D.15

5 skilled workers can build a wall in 20 days 1 skilled worker can build the same

wall in 100 days Capacity of each skilled worker is 1/100 8 semi-skilled workers can

build a wall in 25 days 1 semi-skilled worker can build the same wall in 200 days

Capacity of each semi-skilled worker is 1/200 Capacity of 1 unskilled worker is

1/300 Capacity of 2 skilled + 6 semi-skilled + 5 unskilled workers is 2(1/100) +

6(1/200) + 5/300 = 1/15

4) In a farm 50 hens lays 200 eggs in 2 days, how many days that 20 hens to lay 400 eggs?

A. 20 B.10 C.5 D.15

50 hens --- 200 eggs ---- 2 days

50 hens --- 100 eggs ---- 1 day

1 hen --- 2 eggs ---- 1 day

20 hens --- 40 eggs ---- 1 day

So 20 hens can lay 40 eggs in 1 day

then 20 hens can lay 400 eggs in 10 days (40*10=400)

5) There are 20 couples in a party. Every person greets every person except his or her

spouse. People of the same sex shake hands and those of opposite sex greet each other with

a namaskar (It means bringing one's own palms together and raising them to the chest

level). What is the total number of handshakes and namaskar's in the party?

A.760 B.1140 C.780 D.720

There are 20 men and 20 women.

When a man meets a woman, there are two namaskars, whereas when a man meets

a man (or a woman) there is only 1 handshake.

Number of handshakes =2×20C2 (men and women) =2*380=760

For number of Namaskars Every man does 19 namaskars (to the 20 women

excluding his wife) and they respond in the same way.

Number of Namaskars =(20)(19)=380

Total =760+380= 1140

6) A man spends half of his salary on household expenses, 1/4th for rent, 1/5th for travel

expenses, the man deposits the rest in a bank. If his monthly deposits in the bank amount

50, what is his monthly salary?

A. Rs.500 B. Rs.1500 C. Rs.1000 D. Rs. 900

Let the person gets a salary x per month.

=> x/2 --Household expenses

=> x/4 -- Rent

=> x/5 -- Travel expenses

=> y= Rest amount deposited in bank = 50/-

There fore, x=x/2+x/4+x/5+y => x=(10x+5x+4x)/20 + 50

=> x=19x/20 + 50

=>x=1000;

7) If the price of petrol increases by 25%, by how much must a user cut down on his petrol

consumption so that his expenditure on petrol remains unchanged?

A. 25% B. 16.67% C. 20% D. 33.33%

Let the price of petrol be Rs.100 per litre. Let the user use 1 litre of petrol.

Therefore, his expense on petrol = 100 * 1 = Rs.100

Now, the price of petrol increases by 25%. Therefore, the new price of petrol =

Rs.125.

As he has to maintain his expenditure on petrol constant, he will be spending only

Rs.100 on petrol.

Let 'x' be the number of litres of petrol he will use at the new price.

Therefore, 125 * x = 100 => x = 100/125 - 4/5 =0.8 litres.

He has cut down his petrol consumption by 0.2 litres = 0.2/1 * 100 = 20% reduction.

There is a short cut for solving this problem.

If the price of petrol has increased by 25%, it has gone up 1/4th of its earlier price.

Therefore, the % of reduction in petrol that will maintain the amount of money

spent on petrol constant = 1/4+1 = 1/5 20%

i.e. Express the percentage as a fraction. Then add the numerator of the fraction to

the denominator to obtain a new fraction. Convert it to percentage - that is the

answer 20%.

8) If the letters of the word RACHIT are arranged in all possible ways as listed in dictionary.

Then what is the rank of the word RACHIT?

(A)480 (B)479 (C)481 (D)484

If we arrange in alphabetical order we get A C H I

Words start with A=5!

Words start with C=5!

Words start with H=5!

Words start with I=5!

Words start with R is RACHIT

Hence 5!+5!+5!+5!5!+5!+5!+5!

5!=5×4×3×2×1=1205!=5×4×3×2×1=120

120+120+120+120=480120+120+120+120=480

Hence words with R is RACHIT

Thus 480+1=481

9) On a new year day every student of a class sends a card to every other student. The

postman delivers 600 cards. How many students are there in the class?

A. 20 B.10 C.5 D.15

If there are n students, then each student sends n−1 cards. So we have the total

number of cards is n (n−1) =600so that n=25.

10) A team of 8 persons joins in a shooting competition. The best marksman scored 85

points. If he had scored 92 points, the average score for the team would have been 84. The

number of points, the team scored was:

A.588 B.645 C. 665 D.675

Let the total score be x.

(x+92-85)/8 =84

X+7= 672

X=665

11) You can collect as many rubies and emeralds as you can. Each ruby is worth Rs. 4 crore

and each emerald is worth Rs. 5 crore. Each ruby weighs 0.3 kg. And each emerald weighs

0.4 kg. Your bag can carry at the most 12 kg. What should you collect to get the maximum

wealth?

a) 20 rubies and 15 emeralds b) 40 rubies

c) 28 rubies and 9 emeralds d) None of these

Let's say number of rubbies are x and emeralds are y.

So 0.3x + 0.4y = 12

And total wealth = 4x+5y

Now putting value of x from eq.1 to eq.2

i.e. total wealth = 4(12-0.4y)/0.3 + 5y

Now for maximizing total wealth y should be equal to zero.

Hence x = 40

12) I have one-rupee coins, 50-paisa coins and 25-paisa coins. The number of coins are in

the ratio 2.5 : 3 : 4. If the total amount with me is Rs. 210, find the number of one-rupee

coins.

A. 90 B. 85 C. 100 D. 105

Solution: Let's say number of coins are 2.5x , 3x and 4x

So total amount will be = 2.5x + 3x(0.5) + 4x(0.25) = 210

So x = 42

And number of 1 rs. coins = 2.5x = 105

13) Gopal went to a fruit market with certain amount of money. With this money he can

buy either 50 oranges or 40 mangoes. He retains 10% of the money for taxi fare. If he buys

20 mangoes, then the number of oranges he can buy is

A. 25 B. 20 C. 18 D. 6

Let's say the amount of money Gopal has is x rs.

Taxi fare = 0.1x

Remaining money = 0.9x

Cost of 40 mangoes = x

Cost of 20 mangoes = 0.5x

Remaining money = 0.4x

Now 50 oranges cost = x

So with 0.4x he can buy 20 oranges.

14) Instead of a metre scale, a cloth merchant uses a 120 cm scale while buying, but uses an

80 cm scale while selling the same cloth. If he offers a discount of 20% on cash payment,

what is his overall profit percentage?

A. 20% B. 25% C. 40% D. 15%

Lets say the cost of the cloth is x rs per metre. Because of the faulty meter, he is

paying x for 120 cms when buying.

So cost of 100 cms = 100x/120. He is selling 80 cms for x, so selling price is 100x/80.

discount = 20%

so selling price is .8*100x/80= x

profit = x - 100x/120 = x/6

Profit % = x/6 divided by 100x/120 = 20%

15) Once I had been to the post office to buy five-rupee, two-rupee and one-rupee stamps. I

paid the clerk Rs. 20, and since he had no change, he gave me three more one-rupee

stamps. If the number of stamps of each type that I had ordered initially was more than

one, what was the total number of stamps that I bought?

A. 10 B. 9 C. 12 D. 8

As shopkeeper gave 3 one-rupee change for 20 rs. change,

Buyer must have ordered for a total of 17 rs. stamps.

Now buyer ordered for at least more than 1 stamp for each type

Hence the minimum he bought was:

2 stamp for 5 rupees = 10 rs.

2 stamp for 2 rupees = 4 rs.

2 stamp for 1 rupee = 2 rs.

For the total to be seventeen, the buyer must have purchased 3 one rupee stamps.

And 3 one rupee stamps were also there as changes given by shopkeeper.

So total number of stamps = 2+2+(3+3) = 10

16) A train overtakes two persons who are walking in the same direction in which the train

is going, at the rate of 2 kmph and 4 kmph and passes them completely in 9 and 10 seconds

respectively. The length of the train is :

a. 72 metres

b. 54 metres

c. 50 metres

d. 45 metres

Let the length of the train be x km and its speed y km/hr. Then, speed relative to

first man = (y-2) km/hr.

Speed relative to second man = (y-4) km/hr.

x/y−2=9/60×60 and x/y−4 = 10/60×60

9y - 18=3600x or 10y - 40=3600x

So, 9y-18=10y-40 or y =22

x/22−2=9/3600 or x = 20×9/3600=1/20

= ([1/20]×1000)m = 50 m

17) 7, 5, 7, 17, 63, ?

a. 308

b. 302

c. 309

d. 409

The given series is

7×1−2=5 ; 5×2−3=7 ; 7×3−4=17

17×4−5=63 ; 63×5−6=309

18) Calculate the Value of 7 + 2 + 5

If,

5 + 3 + 2 = 151012

9 + 2 + 4 = 183662

8 + 6 + 3 = 482466

Then find the value of 7 + 2 + 5 =?

A. 145324 B. 143524 C. 143549 D. 143542

(7*2)+(7*5)+(Reverse of [{7+5}*2]) = 143542

19) Abhishek starts to paint a fence on one day. On the second day, two more friend of

Abhishek join him. On the third day 3 more friends of him join him and so on. If the fence is

completely painted this way in exactly 20 days, then find the number of days in which 10

girls painting together can paint the fence completely, given that every girl can paint twice

as fast as Abhishek and his friends(Boys)?(Assume that the friends of Abhishek are all

boys).

A. 20 B. 40 C. 45 D. 77

The number of boys-days

1/2[1+(1+2)+(1+2+3)+………..+(1+2+3+....+20)]=1440

⇒ But , each boy =1/2 girls⇒ 770 girl-days.

⇒ 10 girls will take 770/10

= 77 days.

20) A fort had provision of food for 150 men for 45 days. After 10 days, 25 men left the fort.

The number of days for which the remaining food will last, is:

A. 29/5 B. 37/4 C. 42 D. 54

After 10 days : 150 men had food for 35 days.

Suppose 125 men had food for x days.

Now, Less men, More days (Indirect Proportion)

125 : 150 :: 35 : x => 125 x x = 150 x 35

=> x = 42.

21) How many 6 digit even numbers can be formed from digits 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 so that the

digit should not repeat and the second last digit is even?

a)6480 b)320 c)2160 d)720

6th digit is filled by any one from 2,4,6

5th digit is placed by any 6 no,

4th digit is placed by any 5 no,

3rd digit is placed by any 4 no,

2nd digit is placed by any 3 no,

1st digit is placed by any 2 no,

2*3*4*5*6*3=2160

22) How many ways A boy can reach the top of stairs which contain 10 steps, when he can

take either one or two steps every time?

A. 98 B. 40 C. 89 D. 49

No of ways to climb stair of 1 step - 1

No of ways to climb stair of 2 step - "11 or 2" - 2

No of ways to climb stair of 3 step - "111, 12, 21" - 3

No of ways to climb stair of 4 step - "1111, 112, 121, 211, 22" - 5

So clearly we can see a fibonacci series forming (which is sum of last two terms )

No of ways to climb stair of 5 step - 5(steps for 4 step) + 3(steps for 3 step) = 8

No of ways to climb stair of 6 step - 8(steps for 5 step) + 5(steps for 4 step) = 13

Hence,

No of ways to climb stair of 10 stp – 89

23) Anand packs 304 marbles into packets of 9 or 11 so that no marble is left. Anand wants

to maximize the number of bags with 9 marbles. How many bags does he need if there

should be atleast one bag with 11 marbles?

A. 33 B. 32 C. 31 D. 30

Given 9x + 11y = 304.

x = (304? 11y)/9 = 33 + (7?2y)/9 + y

So y = - 1 satisfies. Now x = 35,

Now other solutions of this equation will be like this. Increase or decrease x by 11,

decrease or increase y by 9. So we have to maximize x. next solution is x = 24 and y =

8. So bags required are 32.

24) If ABC is a quarter circle and a smaller circle is inscribed in it; if radius of quarter circle

is 1.414 units. Find the radius of smaller circle.

A. 33 B. 32 C. 31 D. 30

Quarter Circle = Quarter of a circle or Quadrant.

In the given image, ABC is Quarter circle.

B = center of bigger circle.

BO = R = Radius of bigger circle.

Also, BO = Diagonal of square MBNO = Distance between two centres.

Diagonal of a square = â��2 * r

If r be radius of smaller circle then

Distance between centres = â��2 * r

For inscribed circles, Radius of bigger circle is given by a formula,

R = r + râ��2

Here,R = 1.414 =â��2

=> r=(â��2 -1)R

=> r=(â��2 -1)*1.414.

r = 0 .586 unit.

25) The difference between simple interest and the compound interest on a certain amount

of money for 3 years at 10% per annum is Rs. 46.50. The sum is:

A) Rs.1600 B) Rs.1550 C) Rs.1500 D) 8) Rs.1450

Let the sum be Rs.x. then S.I.=(x*10*3 / 100) = 3x/10

C.I = [x(1+10/100)^3 -x] = 331x/1000

331x/1000 - 3x/10 = 46.50

=> 31x/1000 = 46.50

=> x = 1500

OR

100-->110-->120-->130

100-->110-->121-->133.1

diff=3.1

(46.5/3.1)*100=1500

26) How many factors does 400 have?

a) 8 b) 10 c) 12 d) 15

400 should be factorized as prime numbers.

So we can get, 400=(2^4)*(5^2).

The power of prime numbers are 4 and 2.

No of factors=(4+1)*(2+1)=5*3=15.

27) What is the angle between the minute and the hour hand of the clock which shows

4:40 p.m?

A. 105 B. 100 C. 120 D. 115

30) Time and distance A boat covers 24 km upstream and 36 km downstream in 6 hours,

while it covers 36 km upstream and 24 km downstream is 13/2 hours. The velocity of the

current (in km/hr) is.

A) 1 B) 2 C) 1.5 D) 2.5

Let speed upstream & speed downstream be x km/hr and y km/hr respectively.

Then 24/x + 36/y = 6 and 36/x + 24/y = 13/2

=> 24u + 36v = 6 and 36u + 24v = 13/2 (u = 1/x and v = 1/y)

Adding we get

u = 1/8 and v = 1/2

=> x = 8 and y = 12

Velocity of current = 1/2 (12-8) km/hr = 2 km/hr

31) The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is

25%, then the value of x is:

A. 15 B. 16 C. 18 D. 25

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x).

[(20 – x)/x ]100 = 25

2000 - 100x = 25x

125x = 2000 x = 16.
