SOLUTIONS:

3.Let the distance be 3x km
Total time = [2x/60] +[x/75]= 7x/150
Avg speed = 3x/ [7x/150]
=450/7=64 2/7kmph

4.We can equate the work done by all in the following way:

9*360 children = 18* 72 men = 12*162 women
=> 45 children = 18 men = 27 women
=> 5 children = 2 men = 3 women

Now, available persons are as follows:

8 men + 30 women + 20 children

We can convert all of them in number of men available for work:
= 8 men + 20 men + 8 men = 36 men

We know that 18 men can complete the work in 72 days.
So again equating the work:

(18*72) = (x*36)

So, 36 men can complete the same work in x = (18*72)/36 = 36 days

5. Solution: Speed = X     time=t
Speed = X-1  time=t+6
Speed = X+1 time=t-4
because speeds are at a difference of 1 km, hence distance in option must be divisible by three consecutive integers.
looking at options only 120 is the only option which is divisible by 3,4,5.

6.Let, amount invested by Mudit in scheme A be Rs. x.

So, amount invested by Mudit in scheme B be Rs. (2500 – x).

According to question,

x × 8% × 3 – (2500 – x) × 10% × 3 = 60

x × 24% - 750 + 30% × x = 60

0.54x = 60 + 750

x = 810/0.54

x = Rs. 1500

Hence, option c.

7.Let the rate of discount on book A be ‘x’%. Then the rate of discount on book B and C would be ‘x + 5’% and ‘x + 14’% respectively.

According to the question,

1300 × (1 – x/100) + 1600 × (1 – (x + 5)/100) + 1000 × (1 – (x + 14)/100) = 3290

13 × (100 - x) + 16 × (95 - x) + 10 × (86 - x) = 3290

1300 – 13x + 1520 – 16x + 860 – 10x = 3290

39x = 390, x = 10

Rate of discount offered on book C = x + 14 = 10 + 14 = 24%

Hence, option e.

8.P’s initial capital = (2/11) × 220000 = Rs. 40000

Q’s initial capital = (5/11) × 220000 = Rs. 100000

R’s initial capital = (4/11) × 220000 = Rs. 80000

Profit sharing ratio between P, Q and R at the end of 1st year = [(40000 × 4) + (40000 + x) × 8]: [100000 × 12]: [(80000 × 4) + (80000 - x) × 8]

= [480000 + 8x]: : [960000 – 8x]

According to the question,

{(480000 + 8x)/(480000 + 8x + 1200000 + 960000 – 8x)} × 66000 = 16000

{(480000 + 8x)/2640000} × 66000 = 16000

So, x = Rs. 20000

Hence, option d.

9.Let the initial quantities of kerosene and petrol in the vessel are 7x liters and 5x liters respectively.

84 liters mixture contains 49 liters kerosene and 35 liters petrol.

So according to question: (7x – 49)/(5x – 35 + 32) = 9/11

77x – 539 = 45x – 27

32x = 512, x = 16

So the initial quantity of petrol in the vessel = 16 × 5 = 80 liters

Hence, option d.

10.Let the present ages of A and B be 6x years and 5x years respectively.

So, the present age of D = 5x × 2 = 10x years

Age of D after four years = 10x + 4 years

Age of C after four years = 9/11 × (10x + 4) = 90x/11 +36/11 years

Present age of C = 90x/11 + 36/11 – 4 = 90x/11 – 8/11 years

So according to question: 6x + 5x + 10x + 90x/11 – 8/11 = 4 × 29

321x – 8 = 1276

Total number of students likes at most two subjects

= > Total students in the school – total students like all the 3 subjects

= > 800 – 40 = 760

Total number of students like only English = 160

Total number of students like all the 3 subjects = 40

Required % = [(160 – 40)/40] * 100 = 300 %

The total number of students likes only one subject

= >160 + 160 + 70 = 390

The total number of students likes at least two subjects

= >90 + 40 + 90 + 120 = 340

Required ratio = 390: 340 = 39: 34

The total number of students likes English and Maths but not GK

= > 160 + 90 + 160 = 410

The total number of students likes only GK

= > 70 + 160 * (35/100) + 160 * (15/100)

= > 70 + 56 + 24 = 150

321x = 1284, x = 4

Directions (16-20) :

Pipes A and B together can fill the tank in 5 hours = (1/30 + 1/15) * 5

= 5/10 = ½

Remaining part = 1 – ½ = ½

C and D together can fill ½ of the tank in 7(9/13) hours

(1/25 + 1/x) * 100/13 = ½

1/25 + 1/x = 13/200

1/x = 5/200

1/x = 1/40

x = 40 h

(1/15 – 1/H) * 6 = 1/10

1/H = 1/15 – 1/60

1/H = 1/20

Time ratio of J and H = 2: 1

Pipe J emptied the tank in = 2/1 * 20 = 40 hours

E and J together can fill the tank = 1/25 – 1/40

= 15/1000

Required time = 200/3 hours = 66(2/3) hours

Time ratio of Pipe C and E = 8: 5

C alone fill the tank = 8/5 * 25 = 40
