SOLUTIONS:

Explanation :
Part filled by P and Q = 1/15 + 1/10 = 1/6
Part filled by Q = 1/10
x/2(1/6 + 1/10) = 2/15 = 15/2 = 7.5 minutes

Explanation :
Required time = y(1-(t/x)) = 27(1-(8/24))= 18 minutes

Explanation :
Let T is the time taken by the pipes to fill the tank
(1/12 + 1/18 + 1/24)*(T – 12) + (1/12 + 1/18)*12 = 1
We will get T = 108/13 = 8.(4/13)

Explanation :
Pipe P can fill = 1/12
Pipe Q can fill = 1/4
For every two minutes, 1/12 + 1/4 = 1/3 Part filled
Total = 6 minutes

Explanation :
Total time taken by both pipes before the leak was developed = 60/7 minutes
now, leaks is developed which will take T time to empty the tank so, (1/15 +1/20 – 1/T) = 1/11
solve for T, we will get 660/17 minutes = 39 minutes (approx.)

Explanation :2004 = 350+300+300/3 = 316.66 = 317

Explanation :
2002 = 600
2004 = 950
2005 = 900
2007 = 1250

8.Answer – D)Both 2003 and 2006
Explanation :
2001 = 50
2002 = 50
2003 = 150
2004 = 0
2005 = 100
2006 = 150
2007 = 0
