  1. A bag contains 3 green, 4 yellow and 5 blue colored marbles. What is the probability of drawing 2 marbles such that both are different in color?
    A) 27/130
    B) 41/110
    C) 13/66
    D) 47/66
    E) 21/65
    Answer & Explanation
    D) 47/66
    Explanation:

    Case 1: 1 green+1 yellow
    3C1*4C1/12C2
    Case 2: 1 green+1 blue
    3C1*5C1/12C2
    Case 3: 1 yellow+1 blue
    5C1*4C1/12C2
    Add all cases
  2. Asha and Manisha have their ages in the ratio 2 : 3 respectively and that of Asha to Anisha is 4 : 9 respectively. Also the difference in the ages of Manish and Anisha is 15 years. What is the age of Anisha?
    A) 25
    B) 52
    C) 45
    D) 48
    E) 36
    Answer & Explanation
    C) 45
    Explanation:

    Let Asha = A, Manisha = B, Asnisha = C
    B/A = 3/2 and A/C = 4/9
    So B : A : C = 3*4 : 2*4 : 2*9 = 6 : 4 : 9
    A = 6x, B = 4x, C = 9x
    So 9x – 6x = 15, this gives x = 5
    Age of Anisha = 9x = 45
  3. A person invested a total of Rs 22,000 in two schemes A and B. Scheme A offers 6% as interest rate and scheme B offers 8% interest rate. At the end of year, the interest from one of the scheme is twice that from another scheme. What is the amount invested in scheme A?
    A) Rs 14,650

    D) Rs 16,000
    E) Rs 15,000
    Answer & Explanation
    D) Rs 16,000
    Explanation:

    x*6/100 = 2 [(22000-x)*8/100] Solve, x = 16000
  4. From a 80 litres mixture of milk and water, 40% of milk and 20% of water is taken out. What is the initial quantity of milk present in the mixture if after the process, 35% of the mixture was taken out?
    A) 54 litres
    B) 60 litres
    C) 62 litres
    D) 49 litres
    E) 56 litres

    By method of allegation:
    Milk water
    40% 20%
    . 35%
    15% 5%
    15 : 5 = 3 : 1
    Milk = 3/(3+1) * 80 = 60 l
  5. A, B and C started a business by investing Rs 5400, Rs 6000 and Rs 4800 respectively. After 7 months A withdrew Rs 300 and B Rs 600 while C added Rs 900. What is the share of B from a total profit of Rs 84,240 at the end of a year?
    A) Rs 26,500
    B) Rs 24,000
    C) Rs 25,300
    D) Rs 29,900
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation

    Explanation:

    5400*7 + 5100*5 : 6000*7 + 5400*5 : 4800*7 + 5700*5
    211 : 230 : 207
    B gets = (230/648) * 84240
  6. Travelling at a speed of 6 km/hr takes 40 mins longer to reach to a certain destination and travelling at 8 km/kr covers the same distance in 12 mins less. What is the distance between the starting point and destination?

    Answer & Explanation
    D) 20.8 km
    Explanation:

    Shortcut-
    [6*8/(8-6)] * 52/60
  7. A and B alone can complete a piece of work in 30 and 36 days respectively. A starts the work and after working for 5 days, B replaces A. In how many days B will do the remaining work?
    A) 25days
    B) 32days
    C) 33days
    D) 30days
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    D) 30days
    Explanation:

    A works in 30 days, so in 5 days he completes (1/30)*5 = 1/6th of work
    Remaining work = 1 – 1/6 = 5/6
    B do 1 work in 36 days, so 5/6 work in (5/6)*36
  8. There are 3 pipes A, B and C. A and B alone can fill a tank in 20 minutes and 40 minutes respectively while C can empty the tank in 20 minutes. A and B are opened for 7 minutes after which C is also opened. In how much time the tank will be filled?
    A) 22 minutes
    B) 32 minutes
    C) 30 minutes
    D) 26 minutes
    E) 25 minutes
    Answer & Explanation
    D) 26 minutes
    Explanation:

    Let after 7 minutes, tank takes x more minutes to be filled. So
    (1/20 + 1/40)*7 + (1/20 + 1/40 – 1/20)*x = 1
    Solve, x = 19
    So total time to fill the tank = 19+7
  9. When 4 is added to the numerator of a fraction and 5 is added to its denominator, the new fraction becomes 4/5. What is the original fraction?
    A) 5/4
    B) 4/5
    C) 4/9
    D) 9/11
    E) None of these
    Answer & Explanation
    B) 4/5
    Explanation:

    x/y
    (x+4)/(y+5) = 4/5
    Solve, x = 4/5 * y
    So original fraction = [4/5 * y ] / y
  10. Four bells start tolling together and after this they toll at the intervals of 4, 8, 12, and 16 seconds respectively. How many times they will toll together in 12 minutes?
    A) 21
    B) 15
    C) 24
    D) 19
    E) 16
    Answer & Explanation
    E) 16
    Explanation:

    LCM of 4, 8, 12, 16 = 48sec
    12 minutes = 12*60 = 720 sec
    In 720 sec – 720/48 = 15
    15+1
