START QUIZ

DIRECTION ( 1 - 5 )Study the given passage carefully and answer the following questions.

Total distance between A to B is 240 km. Ram boards Train P & it starts running with an average speed of ‘X’ kmph from A to B, while on another train Q, Radha boards from A to reach B. Train Q starts running from B after 2 hours of train P and reaches A, 60 minutes before train P. If train P stops for 60 minutes at a line crossing and second train did not stop at any place, then the ratio between the average speed of train P to average speed of train Q is 4:5. After reaching B, Ram meets his two daughters Roly & Beauty & distributed Rs.17000 between them & thus Roly got Rs ‘R’ & Beauty got Rs ‘S’ and further both of them invested their amounts at the rate of (X-6) % SI per annum. The age of Beauty and Roly at that time was 18 months and ‘X’ months respectively and such that each daughter may get equal amounts, when they attain the age of 21 months. Roly, invests Rs ‘K’, which she received at the age of 21, & its value increases by ‘X’% every month. The difference between the price at the end of the third month and fourth month is ‘W’.

SOLUTIONS:

1.Rate % at which Roly & Beauty invested their amounts = (X-6) % =12-6 = 6 %

Now, Ratio of their amounts,

Roly : Beauty

:

59 : 77

Amount of Roly = 59/136×17000=7375 = R

Amount of Beauty =77/136×17000=9625=S

So, S-R = 9625-7375 = 2250

5.ATQ,

Speed of train P = X, Speed of train Q =5X/4

Now let time taken by Train P to reach B = T hrs

So, X × (T+1) =5X/4 × (T-3)

T = 19 hrs

So, X × (T+1) = 240

S = 12

6.Let 1 bottle of water fill ‘a’ glasses and 1 bottle milk juice fill ‘m’ glasses.

We have 5a + 9m = 71 and 7a + 11m = 93.

Solving we get a = 7 and m = 4.

So 3 bottles of water and 4 bottles of milk will fill = 7*3 + 4*4 = 37 glasses

7.Let the original price per kg of wheat = x

Therefore reduced price = 0.8x

Quantity before price reduction = Total cost / cost per kg = 275/x

Quantity after price reduction = 275 / 0.8x

==> (275/x)+1.25 = (275/0.8x)

==> x = Rs 55.

==> 0.8x = Rs 44

8.Area of rectangle = 224 sq.m.

So side of square = 224

Diagonal of square= 224√2

9.Let the quantity of water and milk be 3x and 5x

It is given that, (3x+4)/(5x+5)=2/3

On solving, we get x = 2

Therefore, the quantity of water in the final mixture = (3 * 2 + 4) litres = 10 litres.

10.In the time that Rahul runs 200 m, Amit runs 160 m. Hence, the ratio of their speeds is 5:4. Now, in the time that Rahul runs 200 m, Amit runs 170 m. Hence, the ratio of their speeds is 20:17

Thus, we can say that the ratio of the speeds of all three people will be 25:20:17

Hence, the ratio of the speeds of Rahul and Amit is 25:17.

Hence, in the time that Rahul travels 500 m, Amit will travel 340 m. Thus, Rahul will beat Amit by 160 m.

11.Thief stealt the car at 8 a.m and rides at a speed of 40 km/h Theft was found at 9.30 a.m

In 1 hour 30 minutes, thief travels = 40 x 1 hour 30 minutes = 60 km.

So, thief was 60 km ahead of policeman.

At 9.30 policemen started chasing at a speed of 70 km/h.

As they both are moving in same direction, relative speed = 70-40 = 30 km/h

Time taken by policeman to cover 60 km travelled by thief already = 60 / 30= 2 hours.

Starting counting 2 hours from 9.30 am, thief will be caught at 11.30 am.

12.Let the total quantity of mixture be x

Initial ratio of wine and water= 4:3

Final ratio of mixture after replacement= 3:4

We know,

Remaining Quantity/Initial Quantity= (1 – replaced quantity/total quantity)

¾= 1- 15/x

15/x= 1-3/4

15/x= 1/4

x= 60 liters

13.Interest as S.I = (P x R x T)/100 = 25000 x 12.5 x 2 /100 = Rs.6250

He invests 60% of interest = 0.6 of 6250 = Rs.3750

Rahul invested Rs.3750 for 6 months

Sumit invested 20% of Rahul’s interest = 0.2 of 6250 = Rs.1250

Sumit invested Rs.1250 for 3 months, then

Taking out 25% of 1250 = Rs.312.5

Invested amount for remaining 2 months = 1250-312.5 = Rs.937.5

So, Rahul’s investment = 3750 x 6 = 22500

And, Sumit’s investment = (1250 x 3) + (937.5 x 2) = 3750+1875

= 5625

Ratio profits is ratio of investments.

Rahul’s profit / Sumit’s profit = 22500 / 5625 = 4/1

So, [Rahul’s profit ratio](total profit) = Rahul’s profit

Rahul’s profit = [4/(4+1)](20000) = 80000/5 = Rs.16,000

14.Let the speed of Rahul in still water be x mph

and the speed of the current be y mph

Then, Speed upstream = (x – y) mph

Speed downstream = (x + y) mph

Distance = 12 miles

Time taken to travel upstream – Time taken to travel downstream = 6 hours

12/(x-y) – 12/(x+y)=6

x2=y2+4y—1

Now he doubles his speed. i.e., his new speed = 2x

Now, Speed upstream = (2x – y) mph

Speed downstream = (2x + y) mph

In this case, Time taken to travel upstream – Time taken to travel downstream = 1 hour

12/(2x-y) – 12/(2x+y) = 1

4x2=y2+24y—2

From 1 and 2 we get

4y+y2=(24y +y2)/4

Y=8/3==> 2 2/3mph

15.Overall rate for 2 years in scheme ‘A’ =2×20=40%

Overall rate for 2 years in scheme ‘B’

= 10 +10 + (10×10)/100=21%

ATQ,

40X/100+(21×1.5X)/100=572

40X+31.5X=57200

⇒X=57200/71.5=800

Interest earned from scheme ‘B’

=1.5×800×21/100=252

16.Quantity I:

Let the total work be 48 units (LCM of 16 and 12)

Efficiency of A = 48/16 = 3 units/day

Efficiency of B = 48/12 = 4 units/day

Let us assume that B joins after ‘x’ days.

A works for x days and completes 3x units

Remaining work = 48-3x units

Total work needs to be completed in 12 days.

Then, 48-3x units needs to be completed by A and B in 12-x days.

⇒ (48-3x)/7 = 12-x

⇒ 48-3x = 84-7x

⇒ 4x = 36

⇒ x = 9

Therefore, B joins after 9 days.

Quantity II:

Let the total work be 24 units (LCM of 12 and 8)

Efficiency of P = 24/12 = 2 units/day

Efficiency of Q = 24/8 = 3 units/day

They work on alternate days starting with P.

Then, 5 units of work will be completed in 2 days.

⇒ 20 units of work will be completed in 8 days.

Remaining work = 24-20 = 4 units

2 units will be completed by P in next 1 day.

Remaining work = 4-2 = 2 units.

Q can complete 2 units of work in ⅔ days

Hence, Total work will be completed in 8+1+⅔ = 92/3+2/3 days

Therefore, Quantity I < Quantity II

17.Quantity I:

Speed of the person = 6 km per hour

⇒ He travels 1 km in 10 minutes

Time taken for him to travel 4 km = 40 minutes

Given that he takes 1 minute rest for every half km.

He travels 3 and half km by taking rest and after last half km, he reaches his destination.

Hence, Rest time for 0.5 km = 1 min

Rest time for 3.5 km = 7 min

Therefore, Total time taken = 40+7 = 47 minutes.

Quantity II:

Time taken for train A to travel from Hyderabad to Secunderabad = 2 hours.

Time taken for train B to travel from Secunderabad to Hyderabad = 3 hours.

Speed of train A = D/2 km/hr

Speed of train B = D/3 km/hr.

Distance travelled by train A in 1 hour(04:30 am to 05:30 am) = D/2×1=D/2 km

Remaining distance = D-D/2 = D/2 km

Hence, Time taken to meet = (D/2)/(D/2+(D    )/3)= 3/5 hours = ⅗*60 = 36 minutes.

Therefore, Quantity I > Quantity II

18.Quantity I:

Let their present ages be 2x years and 5x years respectively.

Father’s age at the time of Mahesh’s birth will be 7x - 5x = 3x years.

Given, 3x = 24

⇒ x = 8

Hence, The sum of their present ages = 5x+2x = 7x years = 7*8 = 56 years.

Quantity II:

Let the present age of the son be x years.

Then, The father’s age at the time of son’s birth = 28 - x years

Given, 28 - x = x

⇒ 2x = 28

⇒ x = 14

Therefore, The sum of their present ages = 28+14 = 42 years.

Therefore, Quantity I > Quantity II.

19.Quantity I:

Number of handshakes possible = n(n-1)/2 where n = number of persons

Given,

⇒ n(n-1)/2=45

Solving,

n = 10 or n = -9

Number of persons cannot be negative.

Hence, Total number of persons is 10.

Quantity II:

Number of handshakes possible = n(n-1)/2 where n = number of persons.

= (8×7 )/2   = 28

Therefore, Quantity I < Quantity II

मात्रा I:

हाथों की संख्या संभव  = n(n-1)/2जहाँ n = व्यक्तियों की संख्या

दिया गया, = n(n-1)/2=45

⇒ n = 10 या n = -9

20.Length of rectangle =√784=28
