__SOLUTIONS:__

Directions (1-5):

1) Answer: a)

I) 2x2 – 16x + 32 = 0

2x2 – 8x – 8x + 32 = 0

2x (x – 4) – 8 (x – 4) = 0

(2x – 8) (x – 4) = 0

x = 8/2, 4 = 4, 4

II) 3y2 – 15y + 18 = 0

3y2 – 9y – 6y + 18 = 0

3y (y – 3) – 6 (y – 3) = 0

(3y – 6) (y – 3) = 0

y = 6/3, 3 = 2, 3

x > y

2) Answer: e)

I) x2 – 4x – 77 = 0

(x – 11) (x + 7) = 0

x = 11, -7

II) y2 – 27y + 92 = 0

(y – 23) (y – 4) = 0

y = 23, 4

Can’t be determined

3) Answer: c)

4x + 5y = – 26 –> (1)

3x – 4y = – 4 –> (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

x = -4, y = -2

x < y

4) Answer: c)

I) 3x2 + 14x + 15 = 0

3x2 + 9x + 5x + 15 = 0

3x (x + 3) + 5 (x + 3) = 0

(3x + 5) (x + 3) = 0

x = -5/3, -3

II) 3y2 – 13y + 14 = 0

3y2 – 6y – 7y + 14 = 0

3y (y – 2) – 7 (y – 2) = 0

(3y – 7) (y – 2) = 0

y = 7/3, 2

x < y

5) Answer: e)

I) 4x2 – 6x – 18 = 0

4x2 – 12x + 6x – 18 = 0

4x(x – 3) + 6(x – 3) = 0

(4x + 6) (x – 3) = 0

x = -6/4, 3 = -3/2, 3 = -1.5, 3

II) 5y2 + 6y – 27 = 0

5y2 + 15y – 9y – 27 = 0

5y(y + 3) – 9(y + 3) = 0

(5y – 9) (y + 3) = 0

y = 9/5, -3 = 1.8, -3

Can’t be determined

Direction (6-10) :

6) Answer: e)

The total number of students employed in MNC companies in the year 2014

= > 1800*(68/100)

The total number of students who completed their UG degree in 2018 and doing business

= > 2500*(20/100)

Required ratio = [1800*(68/100)] : [2500*(20/100)]

= > 306 : 125

7) Answer: d)

The average number of students who completed their UG degree in all the given years together

= > (1800 + 2400 + 1600 + 2000 + 2500) / 5

= > (10300/5) = 2060

8) Answer: a)

The total number of males who completed their degree in the year 2015

= > 2400*(2/3) = 1600

The total number of females who completed their degree in the year 2017

= > 2000*(11/20) = 1100

Required difference = 1600 – 1100 = 500

9) Answer: c)

The total number of peoples employed in MNC companies in the year 2015

= > 2400*(72/100) = 1728

The total number of peoples employed in MNC companies in the year 2017

= > 2000*(84/100) = 1680

Required % = (1728/1680)*100 = 102.85 % = 103 %

10) Answer: b)

The total number of peoples who completed their UG degree in 2016 and doing business

= > 1600*(24/100) = 384

The total number of female students who completed their UG degree in the year 2014

= > 1800*(4/9) = 800

Required % = [(800 – 384) / 800] * 100 = 52 % less
