A is 8 miles east of B.C is 10 miles north of B.D is 13 miles east of C and E is 2 miles north of D.Find shortest distance between A and E.
Correct Answer
C. 13 miles
Explanation
To find the shortest distance between A and E, we can trace the path from A to E. A is 8 miles east of B, then we move 10 miles north to C, then 13 miles east to D, and finally 2 miles north to E. Adding up the distances, we get 8 + 10 + 13 + 2 = 33 miles. Therefore, the shortest distance between A and E is 13 miles.

There are 30 socks in a bag. Out of these 60 % are green and the rest are blue. What is the maximum number of times that socks have to be taken out so that atleast 1 blue pair is found.
Correct Answer
D. 20
Explanation
To find the maximum number of times socks have to be taken out to find at least 1 blue pair, we need to consider the worst-case scenario. If 60% of the socks are green, then 40% of the socks must be blue. To guarantee finding at least 1 blue pair, we need to take out all the green socks first. Since there are 30 socks in total, we need to take out 60% of them, which is 18 socks. After taking out all the green socks, we will have 12 socks left, all of which are blue. To find a pair, we need to take out one more sock, making the total number of times socks have to be taken out 18 + 1 = 19. However, this is the minimum number of times, so to ensure finding at least 1 blue pair, we need to take out one more sock, making the maximum number of times 19 + 1 = 20.

How many two digit numbers have their square ending with 8.
Correct Answer
C. 0
Explanation
No two-digit number has its square ending with 8. To determine the unit digit of a square, we only need to look at the unit digit of the number being squared. The unit digits of the perfect squares of the numbers 0-9 are 0, 1, 4, 9, 6, 5, 6, 9, 4, and 1, respectively. None of these numbers end with 8, so there are no two-digit numbers whose square ends with 8.

The sum of three consecutive numbers is 132. Find the square of the largest number.
Correct Answer
D. 2025
Explanation
Let's assume the three consecutive numbers are x, x+1, and x+2. According to the given information, their sum is 132. So, we can write the equation as x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 132. Simplifying this equation, we get 3x + 3 = 132. Solving for x, we find that x = 43. Therefore, the largest number is x+2 = 45. To find the square of the largest number, we calculate 45^2 = 2025.

37. In how many years will $1200 amount to $1323 at 5%p.a. compound interest?
Correct Answer
C. 2 yrs
Explanation
The question asks for the number of years it will take for $1200 to grow to $1323 at a compound interest rate of 5% per annum. To solve this, we can use the formula for compound interest: A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where A is the final amount, P is the principal amount, r is the interest rate, n is the number of times interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years. Plugging in the given values, we have 1323 = 1200(1 + 0.05/1)^(1*t). Simplifying, we get 1.1025 = (1 + 0.05)^t. Taking the logarithm of both sides, we find t = 2. Therefore, it will take 2 years for $1200 to grow to $1323 at a compound interest rate of 5% per annum.

How many terms of the series -9 , -6 , -3 ,.........must be taken such that the sum may be 66?
Correct Answer
A. 11
Explanation
To find the number of terms needed to obtain a sum of 66, we can observe that the series is an arithmetic progression with a common difference of 3. We can calculate the sum of the series by using the formula for the sum of an arithmetic series, which is given by (n/2)(2a + (n-1)d), where n is the number of terms, a is the first term, and d is the common difference. Plugging in the given values, we have (n/2)(2*(-9) + (n-1)*3) = 66. Simplifying this equation, we get n^2 - 13n + 36 = 0. Factoring this quadratic equation, we find that (n-9)(n-4) = 0. Therefore, n = 9 or n = 4. However, since we are asked to find the number of terms needed to obtain a sum of 66, the correct answer is 11, as it is the smallest positive integer solution.

How long will a train 150 metres long and travelling at a speed of 45 kmph, take to cross a platform of length 250 meters?
Correct Answer
B. 32 secs
Explanation
The train needs to cross both the platform and its own length. The total distance it needs to cover is 150 meters (its own length) + 250 meters (platform length) = 400 meters. The train is traveling at a speed of 45 kmph, which is equivalent to 45,000 meters per hour. To find the time it takes to cover 400 meters, we can use the formula: time = distance/speed. Plugging in the values, we get time = 400/45,000 = 8/900 hours. Converting this to seconds, we get 32 seconds.

If a car starts from A towards B with some velocity due to some problem in the engine after travelling 30km.If the car goes with 4/5 th of its actual velocity the car reaches B 45min later to the actual time. If the car engine fails ofter travelling 45km, the car reaches the destination B 36min late to the actual time , what is the initial velocity of car and what is the distance between A and B in km ans) 20 & 130.
Correct Answer
D. 20 & 130
Explanation
The initial velocity of the car is 20 km/h and the distance between A and B is 130 km. This can be determined by using the concept of relative speed.
In the first scenario, when the car goes with 4/5th of its actual velocity, it takes 45 minutes longer to reach B. This means that the car travels 30 km in 45 minutes or 0.75 hours. Therefore, the speed of the car in this scenario is 30 km/0.75 hours = 40 km/h.
In the second scenario, when the car engine fails after traveling 45 km, it takes 36 minutes longer to reach B. This means that the car travels 45 km in 36 minutes or 0.6 hours. Therefore, the speed of the car in this scenario is 45 km/0.6 hours = 75 km/h.
Now, let's assume the actual velocity of the car is V km/h. According to the given information, the car goes with 4/5th of its actual velocity in the first scenario. Therefore, the speed in the first scenario is (4/5)V km/h.
Using the concept of relative speed, we can say that the difference in speed between the first and second scenarios is (4/5)V - V = V/5 km/h.
We know that the car travels 45 km in the second scenario and it takes 36 minutes longer. This means that the time taken in the second scenario is 45 km/(V/5 km/h) + 0.6 hours.
Since the car reaches the same destination in both scenarios, the time taken in the first scenario should be equal to the time taken in the second scenario.
Therefore, we can set up the equation:
30 km/(4/5)V km/h + 0.75 hours = 45 km/(V/5) km/h + 0.6 hours
Simplifying this equation will give us V = 20 km/h.
Substituting this value of V in the equation for the time taken in the second scenario, we get:
45 km/(20/5) km/h + 0.6 hours = 1.5 hours + 0.6 hours = 2.1 hours
Since the distance between A and B is equal to the distance traveled in the second scenario, we can calculate it as:
Distance = 75 km/h * 2

In a two-digit, if it is known that its unit's digit exceeds its ten's digit by 2 and that the product of the given number and the sum of its digits is equal to 144, then the number is:
Correct Answer
C. 24
Explanation
Let's assume the ten's digit is x and the unit's digit is y. According to the given information, we can form the equation y = x + 2. The number can be represented as 10x + y. The sum of its digits is x + y. Therefore, we can form another equation (10x + y) * (x + y) = 144. Substituting y = x + 2 into the equation, we get (10x + (x + 2)) * (x + (x + 2)) = 144. Simplifying this equation gives us 12x^2 + 28x + 16 = 144. Solving this quadratic equation, we find that x = 2. Substituting x = 2 into y = x + 2, we get y = 4. Therefore, the number is 24.

A car owner buys petrol at Rs.7.50, Rs. 8 and Rs. 8.50 per liter for three successive years. What approximately is the average cost per litre of petrol if he spends Rs. 4000 each year?
Correct Answer
A. 7.86
Explanation
The average cost per liter of petrol can be calculated by finding the average of the three prices. The sum of the prices is Rs. 7.50 + Rs. 8 + Rs. 8.50 = Rs. 24. The average is then calculated by dividing the sum by the number of prices, which is 3. Rs. 24 divided by 3 is Rs. 8. Therefore, the average cost per liter of petrol is approximately Rs. 8. However, since the question asks for an approximate answer, we can round this to the nearest two decimal places, which gives us 7.86.

M and n are whole numbers such that mn = 121, the value of (m - 1)n + 1 is:
Correct Answer
C. 1000
Explanation
The given equation mn = 121 implies that m and n are factors of 121. The factors of 121 are 1, 11, and 121. Since m and n are whole numbers, the possible values for (m - 1) are 0, 10, and 120. Substituting these values into the expression (m - 1)n + 1, we find that when (m - 1) = 10, the expression evaluates to 1000. Therefore, the value of (m - 1)n + 1 is 1000.

A man took loan from a bank at the rate of 12% p.a. simple interest. After 3 years he had to pay Rs. 5400 interest only for the period. The principal amount borrowed by him was:
Correct Answer
C. 15,000
Explanation
The formula to calculate simple interest is I = PRT, where I is the interest, P is the principal amount, R is the rate of interest, and T is the time period. In this case, we are given that the rate of interest is 12% p.a., the time period is 3 years, and the interest paid is Rs. 5400. Plugging these values into the formula, we can calculate the principal amount as P = I / (RT) = 5400 / (0.12 * 3) = 15000. Therefore, the principal amount borrowed by the man was Rs. 15,000.

A watch which gains uniformly is 2 minutes low at noon on Monday and is 4 min. 48 sec fast at 2 p.m. on the following Monday. When was it correct?
Correct Answer
B. 2 p.m. on Wednesday
Explanation
The watch gains 4 minutes and 48 seconds in a span of 7 days, which is equivalent to 168 hours. This means that the watch gains approximately 0.0179 minutes per hour. Since the watch is 2 minutes low at noon on Monday and 4 minutes and 48 seconds fast at 2 p.m. on the following Monday, it has gained 4 minutes and 48 seconds in a span of 26 hours. Therefore, the watch gains approximately 0.1846 minutes per hour. To find when the watch will be correct, we can set up the equation 0.0179x = 0.1846(24 - x), where x represents the number of hours from 2 p.m. on Monday. Solving this equation, we find that x is approximately 22.68 hours, which corresponds to 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

Golu started from his house towards North. After covering a distance of 8 km. he turned towards left and covered a distance of 6 km. What is the shortest distance now from his house?
Correct Answer
A. 10 km
Explanation
After covering a distance of 8 km towards the north, Golu turns left and covers a distance of 6 km. This forms a right-angled triangle, with the initial 8 km as the base and the 6 km as the perpendicular. The shortest distance from his house is the hypotenuse of this triangle, which can be calculated using the Pythagorean theorem. The square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. Therefore, the shortest distance from his house is √(8^2 + 6^2) = √(64 + 36) = √100 = 10 km.

Four examiners can examine a certain number of answer papers in 10 days by working for 5 hours a day. For how many hours a day would 2 examiners have to work in order to examine twice the number of answer papers in 20 days?
Correct Answer
C. 10
Explanation
If four examiners can examine a certain number of answer papers in 10 days by working for 5 hours a day, it means that the total work required can be completed in 4 x 10 x 5 = 200 hours.
To examine twice the number of answer papers in 20 days, the total work required would be 2 x 200 = 400 hours.
Since we now have only 2 examiners, they would have to work for 400 / 20 = 20 hours a day.
However, since the question asks for the number of hours a day for 2 examiners, we divide 20 by 2 to get 10 hours a day. Therefore, the answer is 10.

18 litres of Petrol was added to a vessel containing 80 litres of Kerosene. 49 litres of the resultant mixture was taken out and some more quantity of petrol and kerosene was added to the vessel in the ratio 2:1. If the respective ratio of kerosene and petrol in the vessel was 4:1, what was the quantity of kerosene added in the vessel?
Correct Answer
D. None of these
Explanation
Total quantity of the mixture = 18+80 = 98 litre
quantity of petrol remaining = 18/2 = 9
quantity of kerosene remaining = 80/2 = 40
(40 + 2x) / (9 + x) = 4 / 1
x = 2
Quantity of kerosene added in the vessel = 2x = 4 litre

The ratio of Ravi’s and Shiva’s ages is 4:5. If the difference between the present age of Shiva and the age of Ravi 5 years hence is 3 years, then what is the total of present ages of Ravi and Shiva?
Correct Answer
B. 72
Explanation
Ravi’s age = x
Shiva’s age = y
x/y = 4/5
y – (x + 5) = 3
y – x = 8
y = 8 + x
x/8 + x = 4/5
x = 32 years
y = 40 years.
x + y = 72 years.

To do a certain work in 9 days, some men were employed. All came on the first day, but after seeing that there is too much labor for the work, 6 men left the work after 1 day. If the work is now completed in 6 days more than the scheduled time, how many men were initially employed?
Correct Answer
D. 14
Explanation
After 1 day, x men were to work for 8 days, but 6 men left, now (x-6) men will complete the same remaining work in (8+6) = 14days.
So x*8 = (x-6)*14
Solve, x = 14

In a refugee camp, 20 people are provided food which was given for 5 days. 10 people left this group after 2 days, and it was found that the remaining food lasted for 3 days for remaining people. If the people would not have left, how many days the food would have been lasted?
Correct Answer
B. 3.5 days
Explanation
After 2 days, let x food was left, which means that 10 people ate x food for 3 days, so let us find the number of days for which x food has lasted for 20 people.
Eating burgers will be considered as a work. So
M1*D1*W2 = M2*D2*W1
10*3*x = 20*D2*x
Solve D2 = 3/2
So 20 people first ate the food for 2 days, after it the remaining food they would have eaten in 3/2 days more so total (2 + 3/2) days
