Q9. The age of the two friends was in the ratio of 6:5 if the sum of their ages is 66. Then after how many years their ratio will become 7:6?

a)11

b) 6

c) 10

d) 12

**ANS: 6****Explanation:**Let the age of two friends be 6x and 5x

Sum of their ages 66 => 6x + 5x = 66 => 11x = 66 => x=6

The ages will be 36 and 30

(36+k)/(30+k) = 7/6 => 36 x 6 + 6k = 210 + 7k

216 + 6k = 210 + 7k => 6 = k

After 6 years their ages will be in the ratio of 7:6

**Q10. The age of the two friends was in the ratio of 2:3 if the sum of their ages is 55. Then after how many years their ratio will become 4:5?**a) 11

b) 33

c) 22

d) 44

**ANS: 22****Explanation:**Let the age be the friends be 2x and 3x. Sum of their ages = 55

2x + 3x = 55 => 5x=55 => x=11

Their ages are 22 and 33

After k years both of them will be 22+k and 33+k years old

The ratio of their age at that time will be 4:5

- (22+k)/(33+k)=4/5
- 5(22+k)=4(33+4) => 110 + 5k = 132+4k
- K=132-110 = 22

**Q31. If a pipe can fill the tank within 6hrs. But due to the leak, it takes 30 min more. Now the tank is full then how much time will it take to empty the tank through the leak.?**a) 78

b) 56

c) 66

d) 59

**ANS:**78**Explanation:**Let the capacity of the tank be 6 liters.

The time to fill this tank is 6 hours when there is no leakage.

so in 1 hour, it fills 1 liter.

when leakage is there then it takes 6.5 hours to fill 6 liter

so in 1 hour, it fills 6/6.5 liter.

Time to vacate will be 1-(6/6.5) = 1/13 litre in 1 hour

time to vacate 1 liter will be 13 hours.

For 6 liter it will be 13*6 =78

**Q32. The bacteria has the probability of splitting into 3 and the probability to die is 1/3rd of the total bacteria. Let the probability is P. Some of them survived with a probability of 1/5. Then which among the following relation is true?**a) P=1/3+1/5*3

b) P=1/5*(1/8-3)

c) p = (1/3) + (3* 1/5)

**ANS:****c) p = (1/3) + (3* 1/5)****Explanation:**Probability of the bacteria to be dying = 1/3

Hence the probability of survival = 1/5

if they survive, they will be split into 3 more bacteria hence, p = (1/3) + (3* 1/5)

**Q33. There is a bacteria that has the probability of dying 1/3 of its total number or it may triple. Find out the probability**A. P=1/3+(2/3*p^3)

B. P=2/3+(2/3*p^3)

C. P=2/3+(1/3*p^3)

D. P=2/3+(2/3*p^3)

**ANS:****A. P=1/3+(2/3*p^3)****Explanation:**The probability of bacteria dying is 1/3

or it gets tripled, hence the probability of getting tripled is (2/3)*p*p*p that is (2/3)*p^3

so both the probability combined as P=1/3+(2/3*p^3)

One grandfather has 3 grandchildren two of the age difference is 3. The Eldest child’s age is 3 times the youngest child’s age and the eldest child’s age is two years more than the sum of the other two children. Find what is the age of the elder’s child.**a) 8

b) 12

c) 30

d) 10

**ANS:****8****Explanation:**Let the age of the eldest child is E, that of an elder child be M and that of the youngest child be Y, then according to the given conditions

E = 3Y (1) and E = 2 + M + Y (2)

The third condition is somewhat complicated, according to this condition two of the age difference is 3 so three cases will arise

1) E – M = 3, ……(3)

2) M – Y = 3, ……(4)

3) E – Y = 3, ……(5)

if we take first of the 3 conditions then on solving (1), (2), and (3) we will get E = 3, M = 0, Y = 1 which is wrong now on solving (1), (2) and (4) we will get E = 15, M = 8, Y = 5

similarly on solving (1), (2), and (5) we will get E = 4.5, M = 1, Y = 1.5

only E = 15, M = 8, and Y = 5 are correct so the age of the elder child is 8 years

b) 33

c) 16

d) 35

**ANS:**There is a simple way to answer this kind of Q s given 2x+3y=100, take l.c.m of x co-eff and y co-eff i.e. l.c.m of 2,3 ==6 then divide 100 with 6, which turns out 16 hence answer is 16 short cut formula— constant / (l.cm of x co-eff and y co-eff)**Q4. The total expense of a boarding house are partly fixed and partly variable with the number of boarders. The charge is Rs.70 per head when there are 25 boarders and Rs.60 when there are 50 boarders. Find the charge per head when there are 100 borders.**a) 65

b) 55

c) 50

d) 45

**ANS:**Let a = fixed cost and k = variable cost and n = number of boarders

total cost when 25 boarders c = 25*70 = 1750 i.e. 1750 = a + 25k

total cost when 50 boarders c = 50*60 = 3000 i.e. 3000 = a + 50k

solving above 2 eqns, 3000-1750 = 25k i.e. 1250 = 25k i.e. k = 50

therefore, substituting this value of k in either of the above 2 means we get

a = 500 (a = 3000-50*50 = 500 or a = 1750 – 25*50 = 500)

so total cost when 100 boarders = c = a + 100k = 500 + 100*50 = 5500

so cost per head = 5500/100 = 55

**Q5. Amal bought 5 pens, 7 pencils, and 4 erasers. Rajan bought 6 pens, 8 erasers, and 14 pencils for an amount that was half more than what Amal had paid. What % of the total amount paid by Amal was paid for pens?**a) 37.5%

b) 62.5%

c) 50%

d) None of these

**ANS:**Let, 5 pens + 7 pencils + 4 erasers = x rupees

so 10 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erasers = 2*x rupees

also mentioned, 6 pens + 14 pencils + 8 erasers = 1.5*x rupees

so (10-6) = 4 pens = (2-1.5)x rupees

so 4 pens = 0.5 x rupees => 8 pens = x rupees

so 5 pens = 5x/8 rupees = 5/8 of total (note x rupees is total amt paid abysmal)

i.e 5/8 = 500/8% = 62.5% is the answer

**Q6. lost Rs.68 in two races. My second race loss is Rs.6 more than the first race. My friend lost Rs.4 more than me in the second race. What is the amount lost by my friend in the second race?****ANS:**x + x+6 = rs 68

2x + 6 = 68

2x = 68-6

2x = 62

x=31

x is the amt lost in I race

x+ 6 = 31+6=37 is lost in the second race

then my friend lost 37 + 4 = 41 Rs

**ANS:**B**Directions for Questions 21-26**:**Read the passage and answer the questions that follow based on the information provided in the passage.****A leading Indian industrialist in a recent article on ways to strengthen India’s economy has drawn attention to the problems of inflation and industrial sickness among other things. One of the main reasons for industrial sickness in our country has been the fact that business and industrial managers have not been able to look beyond the immediate future. They have been too preoccupied with their attempts to report favorable results for the current year higher profits and larger dividends to the shareholders. The planning horizon has hardly ever exceeded five years. Investments have been inadequate for new plants and towards diversification and expansions.****Modernization and asset creation have seriously lagged. In business, growth is needed for survival; one has to grow if one does not want to be wiped out This is particularly true today with the liberalization of imports and increasing competition. Moreover, growth and higher productivity create employment and higher employment creates larger markets both for industrial and consumer products. It was Henry Ford who brought home the need for the creation of larger and a more stable middle class, that is, a larger number of people who can afford more and more goods and services. Even after forty years of independence, our industrialists have not been able to shed the petty shopkeeper’s mentality and our highly educated management has tagged along merrily and without concern.****Q21.
