__SOLUTIONS__

1) Answer: a)

Let the distance be x,

Speed of man in still water = 12 km/hr

Speed of stream = 4 km/hr

Speed of upstream = 12 – 4 = 8 km/hr

Speed of downstream = 12 + 4 = 16 km/hr

According to the question,

(x/16) + (x/8) = 9

(x + 2x)/16 = 9

x = 48 km

(Or)

Distance = Time * [(Speed of still water

^{2}– Speed of stream^{2}) / (2* Speed of still water)]
D = 9 * [(144 – 16) / (2 * 12)]

D = 9 * [128/24] = 48 km

2) Answer: c)

The share of A, B and C

= > [6*2] : [7*1 + 14*1] : [9*2]

= >12 : 21 : 18

= >4 : 7 : 6

17’s = 59500

1’s = 3500

The share of B = Rs. 24500

3) Answer: d)

Let the maximum mark be x,

Here passing mark is equal. So,

(48/100)*x + 12 = (62/100)*x – 16

(14/100)*x = 28

x = 28*(100/14) = 200

Passing mark = 200*(48/100) + 12 = 108

4) Answer: b)

Let two parts be x and 65000 – x,

(x*4*12)/100 = [(65000 – x)*6*5]/100

48x = 1950000 – 30x

78x = 1950000

x = 1950000/78 = 25000

Two parts are Rs. 25000 and Rs. 40000

5) Answer: e)

Time required to cross each other in,

=> (300+300) / [(65 + 55) * (5/18)]

= >[(600*18) / (120*5)] = 18 sec

Direction (6-10) :

6) Answer: c)

820 ÷ 21 × 3 +? ≈ 240

Or, 39 × 3 +? ≈ 240

Or,? ≈ 240 – 117 = 123

7) Answer: b)

? ≈ (24.02)2 – 299 ÷ 12 × 13.95

≈ 576 – 25 × 14 = 576 – 350 = 226 ≈ 225

8) Answer: c)

(?)

^{3}+ √49 = 92 × 876 ÷ √1296
(?)

^{3}+ 7 = 92 × 576 ÷ 36
(?)

^{3}+ 7 = 92 × 576 ÷36
(?)

^{3}= 1465
?= 11.3

9) Answer: b)

? = (21.5 * 10)

^{1/3}+ (43 * 6)^{1/2}
? = (215)

^{(1/3)}+ (258)^{(1/2)}
? = (6

^{3})^{(1/3)}+ (16^{2})^{(1/2)}
? = 6 + 16 = 22

10) Answer: a)

40 * (440/100) + ?/100 * 655 = 228

4*44 + ? * 6.55 = 229

? = (229 – 176) / 7

? = 53/7 = 7.5 = 8
