1. Ratio of A’s age four years ago and B’s age four years ago was 5 : 8. A’s age 6 years after will be 6 less than B’s present age. Find the ratio of the present ages of A and B. A) 2 : 3 B) 3 : 4 C) 4 : 5 D) 5: 6 E) None of these
A) 2 : 3 Explanation: 4 yrs ago, A-4/B-4 = 5/8 8A – 5B = 12 After 6 yrs, A + 6 = B – 6 Solve the equations, A = 24, B = 36
2. A and B invested Rs 8,000 and Rs 9,000 in a business. After 4 months A withraw Rs 400 and B added Rs 400. What is the share of A from the profit of Rs 10,200? A) 5466 B) 5648 C) 4640 D) 4480 E) 4256
C) 4640 Explanation: 8000*4 + 7600*8 : 9000*4 + 9400*8 2 zeros get cancelled and 8 can be taken out in common from all terms. We are left with 40+76 : 45+94 116 : 139 Share of A = 116/(116+139) * 10200 = 4640
3. 5 men can complete a piece if work in 6 days. 3 women can complete the same work in 6 days. 2 men started the work and worked for 6 days. After this 6 women joined with them. In how many days the total work will be completed? A) 1 ½ days B) 2 ½ days C) 3 days D) 7 ½ days E) 8 days
D) 7 ½ days Explanation: 5 m in 6 days . So 2 m in 5*6/2 = 15 days. They work for 6 days. So they complete 1/15 * 6 = 2/5th of the work Now 2 m and 6 women have to complete remaining work ( 1 – 2/5) = 3/5 3 w in 6 days, so 6 w in 3*6/6 = 3 days 2m do in 15 days, 6 w in 3days so (2m + 6w)’s 1 day’s work = 1/15 + 1/3 = 6/15 = 2/5. Let (2m + 6w) complete remaining 3/5 th work in x days. So 2/5 * x = 3/5. x = 3/2 So total no of days to complete the work is 6 + 3/2 = 7 ½ days
4. The difference between compound interest and simple interest on a sum for 2 yrs at 10% per annum, when the interest is compounded annually is Rs 16. If the interest were compounded half yearly, the difference in two interests would be A) Rs 24.81 B) Rs 26.90 C) Rs 31.61 D) Rs 32.40 E) None of these
A) Rs 24.81
5. In a can, A and B are in the ratio 7 : 5. When 9 litres of mixture is drawn off and 9 litres of B is put in, the ratio of A : B becomes 7 : 9. How many litres of A was contained in the can initially? A) 20 B) 21 C) 25 D) 28 E) None of these
B) 21 Explanation: A = 7x litres, B = 5x litres After drawing off 9 litres, A left = 7x – 7/12 * 9 = (7x – 21/4) litres, B left = 5x – 5/12 * 9 = (5x – 15/4) litres After adding 9 litres of B, B becomes (5x – 15/4 + 9) litres Now, (7x – 21/4) / (5x – 15/4 + 9) = 7 / 9 Find x, x = 3, A contained in can = 7x = 21 litres
6. A gave 40% of amount to B. From this B gave 20% to C. From remaining B spends 40% on food and 20% of transport. Now he is left with Rs 912. Find the amount received by B. A) Rs 2890 B) Rs 2090 C) Rs 2270 D) Rs 2850 E) None of these
D) Rs 2850 Explanation: Let A has Rs x B gets 40/100 *x = 2/5 * x After giving 20% to C, B is left with 80/100 * 2/5 * x = 8/25 * x After spending 40% on food and 20% of transport, B left with 40/100 * 8/25 * x which is equal to 912 And we have to find 40/100 * x which equals 912 * 25/8 = 2850
7. A bag contains 3 white balls, 5 black balls and 4 yellow balls. 4 balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that there is one ball of each color? A) 5/22 B) 2/9 C) 8/11 D) 6/11 E) None of these
