**Jeevan went to buy a chocolate worth Rs. x. He gave Rs.10 rupee note to the shopkeeper to buy the chocolate then shopkeeper gave rest of the money in the denominations of 50 paise, 1 rupee, and 2 rupees. If the ratio of the number of coins is 4:2:1 respectively. Then what is the price of the chocolate?**

1. 4

2. 5

3. 6

4. 7

5. Cannot be determined

Answer –**1. 4**

**Explanation :**

Possible coins = (4, 2, 1) & (8, 4, 2)

If (4, 2, 1) = 0.50*4+2*1+1*2 =6

Chocolate cost =10-6 =4

Case 2: (8, 4, 2) = 0.50*8+4*1+2*2 = 12 more than 10 rupees so wrong

**In a family, there are ‘n’ persons. The expenditure of rice per month is directly proportional to 4 times the square of the number of persons of the family.

1. 3

2. 4

3. 5

4. 6

5. 7

Answer –**2. 4**

**Explanation :**

R1 = 4n2

R2 = 4(n-1)2

R1-R2 = 28 = 2n-1

n =4

**Three Rabbits A, B, and C move in such a way that when A takes 7 steps, B takes 8 steps and C takes 9 steps. But 4 steps of A are equal to 5 steps of B and 6 steps of C. What is the ratio of their speeds?**

1. 28:40:54

2. 42:40:36

3. 35:32:30

4. 30:32:35

5. None

Answer –**3. 35:32:30**

**Explanation :**

A: B: C = 7:8:9

the ratio of speeds = 7/4:8/5:9/6

35:32:30

**In the year 2013, in a company the ratio of employees in three different departments HR, MT and TA are 2:3:4 respectively. In the year 2014 in each department if ‘n’ number of employees left then the ratio becomes 3:5:7. In the year 2015 in each department 5 employees left then the ratio became 1:2:3. Then what is the total number of employees in the year 2014?**

1. 70

2. 72

3. 75

4. 78

5. Cannot be determined

Answer –**3. 75**

**Explanation :**

In the year 2013 = 2x: 3x: 4x

In the year 2014 = 3y:5y:7y

3y-5/5y-5 = ½

y = 5

Employees in 2014 = 15, 25, 35

Now 2x-n = 15

3x-n =25

x =10

Employees in 2013 = 20, 30, 40

No of left in 2014 = 3*5 = 15

**In a horse racing, there are three horses, A, B and C. The Payoffs at A is 3:7, at B, is 4:9, at C, is 5:11. Sharif bets Rs. 693 on a horse which would fetch maximum amount. Luckily his horse has won. Then what is the total amount won by him?**

1. Rs.990

2. Rs.1001

If he bets on horse B: 693*4/9 = 308

If he bets on horse C: 693*5/11 = 315

So he bets on horse C and he wins 315

Total = 693+315 = 1008

1. 48

2. 60

3. 69

4. 72

5. Cannot be determined

Answer –**3. 69**

A B C D

A-B B+B C D

A-B B+B-C C+C D

A-B 2B-C 2C-D 2D

2(A-B) 2B-C 2C-D 2D-(A-B)

48 48 48 48

2(A-B) =48

A-B =24

2D-(A-B) =48

2D = 72 D =36

2C-D = 48 C = 42

2B-C = 48 B =45

A-B = 24 A =69

**The cost of Coal block varies directly with the square of its weight. The Coal block is divided into three parts whose weights are in the ratio of 5:6:7. If the Coal block is divided into three equal parts by weight then there would be further loss of Rs.7200. Then what is the actual cost of Coal Block?**

1. 1166400

2. 2332880

3. 3888000

4. 3960000

5. None

Answer –**1. 1166400**

**Explanation :**

Cost = (5x)2+(6x)2+(7x)2 = 110×2

When weights equal = (6x)2+(6x)2+(6x)2 =108×2

Loss = 7200 = 110×2-108×2=2×2

x =60

Actual cost = (6x+6x+6x)2

(18*60)2 = 1166400
