1. I bought a book for Rs 60, I sold off to a friend for Rs 70 but after a while I felt sorry, that I sold it and bought it back for Rs 80, how much loss did I incur?

A. Rs 10

B. Rs 15

C. Rs 20

D. Rs 50

Explanation:

cp of book=60

sp of book=70

profit=10

Again cp=80

Then loss =80-70=10.

2. Raj invested in Indigo, HUL and SBI shares at Rs. 300, Rs. 200 and Rs. 5 per share, 100 shares for Rs. 10000. The number of Indigo and HUL shares he bought are respectively:

A. 15, 25

B. 23, 17

C. 17, 23

D. 17, 60

Explanation:

Let the number of shares of indigo , HUL and SBI be x,y and z respectively.

Given, the total number of shares are 100 i.e.

=> x + y + z = 100 .............(i)

And total amount is 10000 i.e. the sum of the amounts of x shares of Indigo(300 Rs) , y shares of HUL(200 Rs) and z shares of SBI (5 Rs)

=> 300x+200y+5z=10000 ........(ii)

On solving the above two equations ,we finally get:

=>295x + 195y = 9500 (z term is to be cancelled by solving since we only need x(Indigo) and y(HUL)).

By substituting options in the final equation, we can check the answers .... i.e. x=17 and y= 23.

3. A rabbit is tied to one end of an equilateral triangle of side 5 m with a rope length of 8 m. The rabbit is not allowed to travel inside the triangle then find the maximum area covered by the rabbit?

A. (96/9) *pi

B. (480/9) *pi

C. (240/9) *pi

D. (100/9) *pi

Explanation:

The rabbit can graze up to 64*pi area if the triangle is not there.

But given that, it should not enter the triangle so it must avoid grazing the sector of the circle which covers the triangular area also. Each angle in the equilateral triangle is 60 degrees.

So the area of the sector formed by 60 degrees and of radius 8m is (pi*8*8*60)/360.

Therefore, maximum total area covered by the rabbit is given by:

=> Area of circle-area of sector

=> (pi*8*8) -(pi*8*8*60)/360

=> (480/9) *pi

4. In a covering a certain distance, the speeds of A and B are in the ratio of 3:4. A takes 30 minutes more than B to reach the destination. The time taken by A to reach the destination is?

A. 1 hour

B. 1 1/2 hour

C. 2 hours

D. 2 1/2 hour

Explanation:

Given, Ratio of speeds = 3:4

Then, Ratio of times taken = 4:3

Suppose A takes 4x hrs. and B takes 3x hrs. to reach the destination.

Then, 4x - 3x = 30/60 => x = 1/2

Time taken by A = 4x hrs. = 4 * 1/2 = 2 hrs.

5. A alone can do a piece of work in 6 days and B alone in 8 days. A and B undertook to do it for Rs. 3200. With the help of C, they completed the work in 3 days. How much is to be paid to C?

A. Rs. 375

B. Rs. 400

C. Rs. 600

D. Rs. 800

Explanation:

C's 1 day's work = 1/3 - (1/6 + 1/8) = 1/3 - 7/24 = 1/24

A's wages: B's wages: C's wages.

1/6: 1/8: 1/24 = 4:3:1.

C's share = 1/8 * 3200 = Rs. 400.

6. If average temperature of June, July and august is 31, and July, august, September is 30. Find temperature of September if temperature of June is 29?

A. 40

B. 36

C. 26

D. 30

Explanation:

Assume temperatures of June, July, August, September be a, b, c, d.

From the question,

=> (a+b+c)/3 = 31

=> a + b + c = 93. --------(1)

Also, (b+c+d)/3 = 30

=> b + c + d = 90. -------(2)

We also have temp of June to be 29 i.e a=29.

Therefore, substituting in first eqn.

We get, b+c =93-29 =64.

Now substituting b+c =64 in second eqn, we get

=> 64 + d = 90

=> d=26

Therefore, temperature of September is 26.

7. The L.C.M & H.C.F of two numbers is 84 & 21 respectively and the ratio of these two numbers is 1:4. Find the greatest number.

A. 75

B. 80

C. 84

D. None of these

Explanation:

We have a formula:

=>LCM * HCF = Product of 2 numbers

We are given that 2 numbers are in the ratio 1:4. So let the numbers be x and 4x. Substitute in the above formula to get the value of x.

=> 84 * 21 = x * 4x.

Solving the above equation, we get the value of x as 21.

So the two numbers are x and 4x.

Therefore, greatest number is 4x = 4 * 21 = 84.

8. Bhanu spends 30% of his income on petrol on scooter, 1/4 of the remaining on house rent and the balance on food. If he spends Rs.300 on petrol, then what is the expenditure on house rent?

A. Rs.525

B. Rs.1000

C. Rs.675

D. Rs.175

Explanation:

Let Bhanu's income be Rs x.

Then, according to the question,

30% of x = 300

=> x = 300 * 100/30 = Rs 1000.

Balance = 1000 - 300 = 700.

Hence, Rent = 1/4 of 700 = Rs 175.

9. A mixture of 50 liters of milk and water contain 10% of water. How much water must be added to make water 20% in the given mixture?

A. 7 liters

B. 10 liters

C. 6 liters

D. 5 liters

Explanation:

According to question,

Quantity of Water = 10% of 50 = 5 liter.

and, Milk = 45 liter

Let x br the amount of water to be added.

Now,

=> (5 + x) = 20% of (45 + x).

=> 5 + x = (45 + x) / 5.

=> 25 + 5x = 45 + x

=> 4x = 20

=> x = 5 liter.

10. An express A starts at 2.30 pm from nampali station and travels towards vizag station at speed of 80 kmph. Another express starts at 4.30 pm from nampali station to vizag station at speed of 100 kmph. How far away from station Nampali will the two trains meet??

A. 600 km

B. 700 km

C. 750 km

D. 800 km

Explanation:

Let train A take x hours to reach the point of meeting (let it be P)

Then train B will reach the same point in x-2 hours.

Distance covered to reach P by train A in x hours=Distance covered by B to reach P in x-2 hrs.

=> 80*x = 100(x-2)

=> 80x = 100x-200

=> x = 10 hrs.

Distance from Nampali = x*speed of train A.

=> 10*80 = 800 km.

16. Ordering & Ranking: -

In a queue of children, Arun is fifth from the left and Suresh is sixth from the right. When they interchange their places among themselves, Arun becomes thirteenth from the left. Then, what will be Suresh's position from the right?

A. 8th

B. 14th

C. 15th

D. 16th

Explanation:

Since Arun and Suresh interchange places, so Arun's new position (13th from left) is the same as Suresh's earlier position (6th from right).

So, number of children in the queue = (12 + 1 + 5) = 18.

Now. Suresh's new position is the same as Arun's earlier position fifth from left.

Therefore, Suresh's position from the right = (18 - 4) = 14th.
