6. A 180m long train crosses a Man in 9 seconds. Later if the train increased its speed and crossed another 240m train in 42 sec running in the same direction at 54 Km/hr, then find the increased speed in km/hr?
1. 5 Km/hr
2. 18 Km/hr
3. 24 Km/hr
4. 36 Km/hr
5. None
Explanation :
train speed = 180/9 = 20
20+x-15 = 420/42
x =5 m/sec = 18 Km/hr

7. Sum weights of A and B are equal to the sum of weights of C and D. B is 28 Kg heavier than A. D is 32 kg heavier than C. Sum of weights of A and C is 20 Kg. Then what is the average weight of A, B, C, and D?
1. 24
2. 25
3. 26
4. 27
5. 28
Explanation :
A+B = C+D
B = 28+A
D = 32+C
A+C = 20
A = 11, B = 39, C = 9 and D =41
Average = 100/4 = 25

8. The probability that Vijay will join IIT is 2/7 and that he will join NIT is 3/5.Find that probability that he will join either IIT or NIT?
1.4/35
2.6/35
3.29/35
4.31/35
5.None
Explanation :
2/7+3/5 = 31/35

9. The amount received on Rs.3325 at 9% SI per annum for 4 years is same as the amount received on Rs.(3325+X) at 11% SI per annum for 3 years. Then what is the value of X?.
1. Rs. 25
2. Rs. 50
3. Rs. 75
4. Rs. 100
5. None
3325+3325*9*4/100 = (3325+x)*(1+33/100)
x = 75
