*SOLUTIONS*
Direction (1-5) :

1) Answer: c)

Let the total distance travelled by D kms and the speed of the boat be S km/hr.

Then upstream speed= (S-3) km/hr

And downstream speed= (S+3) km/hr

(S-3)*20 = (S+3)* 12

20S-60 = 12S+36

8S = 96

S=12 km/hr

Thus speed of the boat= 12 km/hr

2) Answer: e)

Let the amount invested by Megala be Rs x.

Then Sruthi’s investment be 2x and Nandhini’s investment be 3x.

Thus ratio of investment by all of them in 2 years= x*24:2x*12:3x*6

= 24x: 24x: 18x

=4:4:3

Thus share of Nandhini= 3/11*330000

=Rs 90000

3) Answer: d)

If the cost price of 1 chair Rs x then CP of 1 table=Rs (x+320)

Thus 5x+3(x+320) = 4440

5x+3x+960= 4440

8x = 3480

x=435

Then CP of two tables and two chairs= 2(x+x+320)

= 4x+640

= 4*435+640

= Rs 2380

4) Answer: a)

Let the length of the train be x m.

Then length of the platform=3x m

Now time taken by the train to cross platform=(x+3x)/48

= 4x/48 seconds

And time taken by the train to cross the pole= x/48 seconds

Then, (4x/48)-(x/48)=40

3x/48=40

x=640 seconds

5) Answer: e)

Let the number of coins in the bag be x

Then, 0.5x+0.25x+0.2x+0.05x= 50

x= 50

Direction (6-10) :

6) Answer: b)

The total number of male having a favourite fruit of Orange

= >4200*(3/7)

The total number of female having a favourite fruit of Plum

= >3500*(2/7)

Required ratio = [4200*(3/7)] : [3500*(2/7)] = 9 : 5

7) Answer: d)

The total number of male having a favourite fruits of Apple and Grapes together

= >5600*(5/8) + 6400*(7/16)

= > 3500 + 2800 = 6300

The total number of female having a favourite fruits of Mango and Banana together

= >4800*(1/3) + 5500*(5/11)

= > 1600 + 2500 = 4100

Required difference = 6300 – 4100 = 2200

8) Answer: a)

The average number of female having a favourite fruits of Apple, Mango, Banana and Grapes together

= >[5600*(3/8) + 4800*(1/3) + 5500*(5/11) + 6400*(9/16)] / 4

= > [2100 + 1600 + 2500 + 3600] / 4

= > 9800 / 4 = 2450

9) Answer: c)

Total number of peoples having a favourite fruits of Orange and Plum together

= >4200 + 3500 = 7700

Total number of peoples having a favourite fruits of Mango and Banana together

= >4800 + 5500 = 10300

Required % = (7700 / 10300) * 100 = 74.75 % = 75 %

10) Answer: b)

Total number of females having a favourite fruit of Plum

= >3500*(2/7) = 1000

Total number of males having a favourite fruit of Apple

= >5600*(5/8) = 3500

Required % = [(3500 – 1000) / 3500] * 100 = 71.42 % = 71 %
