Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option B

Explanation:

By the rule of alligation, we have:

Strength of first jar Strength of 2nd jar
40% Mean
Strength
26%
19%
7 14

So, ratio of 1st and 2nd quantities = 7 : 14 = 1 : 2

Required quantity replaced = 2

In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3 : 4. A has a start of 140 m. Then, A wins by:

A.
60 m
B.
40 m
C.
20 m
D.
10 m

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option C

Explanation:

To reach the winning post A will have to cover a distance of (500 - 140)m, i.e., 360 m.

While A covers 3 m, B covers 4 m.

While A covers 360 m, B covers 4 x 360 m = 480 m.
3

Thus, when A reaches the winning post, B covers 480 m and therefore remains 20 m behind.

A wins by 20 m.

In a 100 m race, A beats B by 10 m and C by 13 m. In a race of 180 m, B will beat C by:

A.
5.4 m
B.
4.5 m
C.
5 m
D.
6 m

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option D

Explanation:

A : B = 100 : 90.

A : C = 100 : 87.

B = B x A = 90 x 100 = 30 .
C A C 100 87 29

When B runs 30 m, C runs 29 m.

When B runs 180 m, C runs 29 x 180 m = 174 m.
30

B beats C by (180 - 174) m = 6 m.

In a bag, there are coins of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p in the ratio of 1 : 2 : 3. If there is Rs. 30 in all, how many 5 p coins are there?

A.
50
B.
100
C.
150
D.
200

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Let the number of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p coins be x, 2x, 3x respectively.

Then, sum of their values = Rs. 25x + 10 x 2x + 5 x 3x = Rs. 60x
100 100 100 100

60x = 30     x = 30 x 100 = 50.
100 60

Hence, the number of 5 p coins = (3 x 50) = 150.

Present ages of Sameer and Anand are in the ratio of 5 : 4 respectively. Three years hence, the ratio of their ages will become 11 : 9 respectively. What is Anand's present age in years?

A.
24
B.
27
C.
40
D.
Cannot be determined
E.
None of these

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Let the present ages of Sameer and Anand be 5x years and 4x years respectively.

Then, 5x + 3 = 11
4x + 3 9

9(5x + 3) = 11(4x + 3)

45x + 27 = 44x + 33

45x - 44x = 33 - 27

x = 6.

Anand's present age = 4x = 24 years.

An error 2% in excess is made while measuring the side of a square. The percentage of error in the calculated area of the square is:

A.
2%
B.
2.02%
C.
4%
D.
4.04%

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option D

Explanation:

100 cm is read as 102 cm.

A1 = (100 x 100) cm2 and A2 (102 x 102) cm2.

(A2 - A1) = [(102)2 - (100)2]

= (102 + 100) x (102 - 100)

= 404 cm2.

Percentage error = 404 x 100 % = 4.04%

A.
210
B.
1050
C.
25200
D.
21400
E.
None of these

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Number of ways of selecting (3 consonants out of 7) and (2 vowels out of 4)

      = (7C3 x 4C2)
= 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3
3 x 2 x 1 2 x 1
= 210.

Number of groups, each having 3 consonants and 2 vowels = 210.

Each group contains 5 letters.

Number of ways of arranging
5 letters among themselves
= 5!
= 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1
= 120.

Required number of ways = (210 x 120) = 25200.
