1. If the length of a rectangular plot increases by 30% while its breadth remains same, what will be the ratio of the areas of new and old figures
A. 1 : 3
B. 13 : 10
C. 3 : 1
D. 4 : 7
B. 13 : 10
Explanation:
Length increases by 30%, breadth by 0%
So area increases by 30%
Old area = a, then new area = 130/100 * a
Ratio = 13 : 10

2. Two cylindrical vessels with radii 15 cm and 10 cm and heights 35 cm and 15 cm resp are filled with water. If this water is poured into a cylindrical vessel 15 cm in height, then the radius of the vessel is
A. 17.5 cm
B. 18 cm
C. 20 sm
D. 25 cm
D. 25 cm
Explanation:
Let radius of new vessel be ‘r’. Then
πr2 * 15 = π * 152 * 35 + π * 102 * 15

3. A can do a piece of work in 20 days. B is 25% more efficient than A. The number of days taken by B to do the same piece or work is
A. 15
B. 16
C. 18
D. 25
B. 16
Explanation:
Ratio of efficiency of A : B is 1 : 125/100 = 4 : 5
Then ratio of times taken by A and B = 5 : 4
Suppose B takes ‘x’ days. So,
5 : 4 :: 20 : x
x = 4*20/5

4. A and B can together finish a work in 30 days. They work together for 20 days and then B left. After another 20 days, A finished the remaining work. In how many days A alone can finish the job?
A. 40 days
B. 50 days
C. 54 days
D. 60 days
D. 60 days
Explanation:
Let A completes work in ‘x’ days. Then,
(1/30) * 20 + (1/x) * 20 = 1

5. The difference between a discount of 35% and two successive discounts of 20% on a certain bill was Rs 22. Find the amount of the bill.
A. Rs 200
B. Rs 1100
C. Rs 2200
D. Rs 220
C. Rs 2200
Explanation:
Let the amount of bill is Rs ‘x’. then,
65% of x – 80% of 80% of x = 22

6. Ratio in which water is to be added to milk so as to gain 40 5/6% profit on selling the mixture on cost price of milk is
A. 37 : 51
B. 13 : 21
C. 120 : 49
D. 49 : 120
D. 49 : 120
Explanation:
Water : Milk
245/6 : 100
245 : 600
49 : 120

7. In a mixture, A and B are in the ratio 2 : 3. 10 litres of the mixture is taken out and 10 litres of A is poured into it and the new ratio becomes 11 : 9. Find the amount of A in the original mixture.
A. 12 litres
B. 16 litres
C. 15 litres
D. 19 litres
B. 16 litres
A : B = 2 : 3
Let total = 5x + 10
(2x+10)/3x = 11/9
x = 6
Total = 5*6 + 10 = 40 litres
A = 2/5 * 40 = 16 litres

8. A boat takes 22 hours for travelling downstream from point A to B and coming back to point C midway between A and B. If the speed of the stream is 3 km/hr and speed of the boat in still water is 12 km/hr, then what is the distance between A and B?
A. 120 km
B. 180 km
C. 270 km
D. 210 km
B. 180 km
Explanation:
Downstream speed = 12+3 = 15
Upstream speed = 12-3 = 9
Let the distance from A to B is x km
downstream distance = x, upstream distance is half of x because boat goes half way upstream, then
x/15 + (x/2)/9 = 22

9. Oranges are bought at 11 for a rupee and an equal number more at 9 for a rupee. If these are sold at 10 for a rupee, find the loss or gain percent.
A. 1% gain
B. 1% loss
C. 2% gain
D. 2% loss
B. 1% loss
Explanation:
[ 2*11*9/{10(11+9)} – 1 ] * 100 = -1%
– indicates loss

B. Rs 460, Rs 50
C. Rs 440, Rs 40
D. Rs 460, Rs 50
C. Rs 440, Rs 40
Explanation:
H + C = 540+538 / 125%+120%
H – C = 540-538 / 125% – 120%
