c) 25/268

e) 34/260

**1) Answer: d)**

Let the downstream speed be 5p and speed of stream be p

Then speed of boat in still water will be 5p – p = 4p

And speed of boat in upstream will be 4p – p = 3p

Time taken to cover (x + 4) km in upstream = (x + 4)/3p

And time taken to cover (x + 20) km in still water = (x + 20)/4p

{(x + 4)/3p}: {(x + 20)/4p} = 4: 5

{(x + 4)}/{(3x + 60)} = 1/5

5x + 20 = 3x + 60

x = 20

Also,

The sum of time taken by the boat to cover (x – 5) km in
upstream to that in downstream is 8

hours.

(x – 5) = 20 – 5 = 15 km

15/3p + 15/5p = 8

5/p + 3/p = 8

8/p = 8

p = 1 km/hr

The speed of
boat in downstream = 5p = 5 * 1 = 5 km/hr

**2) Answer: b)**

ATQ,

Probability of a blue bike is selected for test drive = x/(5 + x
+ y) = 7/24

24x = 35 + 7x + 7y

17x – 7y = 35 (equation 1)

Also,

Probability that a black bike is selected for test drive = y/(5
+ x + y) = ½

2y = 5 + x + y

x = y – 5

Putting x = y – 5 in equation 1

17(y – 5) – 7y = 35

17y – 85 – 7y = 35

10y = 120

y = 12 and x = 12 – 5 = 7

(x – y + x *
y) = 7 – 12 + 7 * 12 = – 5 + 84 = 79

**3) Answer: a)**

Initially, the Amount of sugar in Q = 36kg

Now, 24kg of salt is poured in Q,

Total quantity in Q becomes = 36kg (sugar) + 24kg (salt) = 60kg
(mixture)

The ratio of salt to sugar in Q becomes = 24: 36 = 2: 3

Again, 20kg of the mixture is taken out from Q and poured into P
Therefore, quantity of salt and sugar in P becomes

= {(56 – 24) + 20 * (2/5)} kg of salt + 20 * (3/5) kg of sugar

= (32 + 8) kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar

= 40 kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar

Required
ratio = (40/12) = (10/3)

**4) Answer: b)**

Let the length of train X = x meter

Relative speed of train and man when running in opposite
direction = 126 + 18

= 144km/hr = 144 * (5/18) = 40 m/s

ATQ,

40 = x/12

x = 480 m

Let the length of the platform “A” = P

126 * (5/18) = (P + 480)/20

35 = (P + 480)/20

P + 480 = 700

P = 220m

The length of platform “B” = P = 220 + 70 = 290

Speed of train Y = 99 km/hr = 99 * (5/18) = 27.5 m/s

Time taken by train Y to cross the platform B = (480 + 290)/27.5

= (770)/27.5
= 28 seconds

**5) Answer: c)**

Therefore, work of A, B, and C together in one day = 1/25

A and C together can complete 30% of the work in 12 days

100% work will be done in (2/5)*100 = 40 days

Work by A and C together in one day = 1/40

Since A is 50% more efficient than C

Let per day work done by C = x and per day work done by A will
be = 150% of x = (150/100)*x

= 1.5x

x + 1.5x = 1/40

2.5x = 1/40

x = 1/100

Therefore per day one done by C = 1/100 and

Per day work done by A = 1.5*(1/100) = 1.5/100 = 3/200

Also,

B and C together can complete 75% of the work in 33 days

100% work will be completed in (33/75)*100 = 44 days

Work done by B and C in one day = 1/44

Let the one day work done by B = x

Therefore,

x + 1/100 = 1/44

x = 1/44 – 1/100

x = 7/550

Therefore,
days taken by B alone to complete the work = 550/7 = 78.57 (79 approx)
