### Directions-(Q.1-3) What will come in place of the question mark (?) in the following series ? 343, 350, 336, 357, 329, ? , 322

• A.

354

• B.

364

• C.

368

• D.

362

• E.

None of these

B. 364
Explanation
In the given series, the numbers are alternating between increasing and decreasing. The pattern is not consistent, but it seems that the numbers are increasing by 7, then decreasing by 14, then increasing by 21, and so on. Following this pattern, the missing number should be obtained by increasing the previous number by 7, which gives 329 + 7 = 336. Therefore, the correct answer is 364, which is the next number in the series obtained by increasing the previous number (357) by 7.

• B.

112

• C.

118

• D.

119

• E.

117

C. 118
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding the previous number with an increasing increment. The increments between the numbers are as follows: 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36. Therefore, to find the missing number, we add 36 to 82, resulting in 118.

Rate this question:

### 33, 38, ? , 63, 83, 108

• A.

47

• B.

46

• C.

43

• D.

48

• E.

49

D. 48
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding the previous number by an increasing value. Starting with 33, the first number is increased by 5 to get 38. Then, the second number is increased by 8 to get 46. Following this pattern, the third number should be increased by 11 to get the next number. Therefore, adding 11 to 46 gives us 57. However, this number is not present in the options. So, we need to continue the pattern and add 14 to 57 to obtain the next number, which is 71. Again, this number is not present in the options. Continuing the pattern, we add 17 to 71 to get 88, which is also not present. Finally, adding 20 to 88 gives us 108, which is the last number in the sequence. Therefore, the missing number is 48, as it follows the pattern correctly.

### The ratio between Priti's and Asha's ages is 9 : 13 respectively. 8 years ago the ratio between their ages was 7: 11 respectively. What is Priti's present age?

• A.

36 years

• B.

52 years

• C.

43 years

• D.

49 years

• E.

None of these

A. 36 years
Explanation
Let Priti's present age be 9x and Asha's present age be 13x. 8 years ago, Priti's age was 9x-8 and Asha's age was 13x-8. The ratio between their ages was 7:11, so (9x-8)/(13x-8) = 7/11. Cross multiplying and simplifying, we get 99x - 88 = 91x - 56. Solving this equation, we get x = 4. Therefore, Priti's present age is 9x = 9*4 = 36 years.

### The average of five numbers is 371.8. The average of the first and second number is 256.5 and the average of the fourth and fifth number is 508. Which of the following is the third number?

• A.

360

• B.

310

• C.

430

• D.

380

• E.

330

E. 330
Explanation
The average of the first and second number is 256.5, which means their sum is 513. The average of the fourth and fifth number is 508, which means their sum is 1016. The average of all five numbers is 371.8, which means their sum is 1859. The sum of the first, second, fourth, and fifth numbers is 513 + 1016 = 1529. To find the third number, we subtract the sum of the first, second, fourth, and fifth numbers from the sum of all five numbers: 1859 - 1529 = 330. Therefore, the third number is 330.

Rate this question:

### The average speed of a bus is 67 km per hour. The bus was scheduled to start at 12 pm. It was scheduled to reach a destination 335 km away from its starting point at 7 pm and a halt was scheduled on the way. For how long was the halt scheduled ?

• A.

3 hours

• B.

2 hours

• C.

1 hour

• D.

Cannot be determined

• E.

None of these

B. 2 hours
Explanation
The bus was scheduled to start at 12 pm and reach the destination 335 km away at 7 pm. The total time for the journey is 7 - 12 = 7 hours. The average speed of the bus is 67 km per hour, so in 7 hours it would cover a distance of 67 x 7 = 469 km. Since the destination is only 335 km away, there must have been a halt scheduled during the journey. The time taken for the halt can be calculated by subtracting the distance covered during the halt from the total distance of 469 km. Therefore, the halt was scheduled for 469 - 335 = 134 km. At an average speed of 67 km per hour, this would take 134 / 67 = 2 hours.

### Oisha scored 35 marks in Geography, 32 marks in History, 29 marks in Science, 40 marks in Mathematics, 36 marks in English and 33 marks in Hindi. The maximum marks in each subject are 50. What is Oisha's approximate percentage ?

• A.

68

• B.

63

• C.

58

• D.

53

• E.

76

A. 68
Explanation
Oisha's approximate percentage can be calculated by finding the average of her marks in all subjects and then dividing it by the maximum marks in each subject and multiplying by 100. The average of her marks is (35+32+29+40+36+33)/6 = 35.83. Dividing this by 50 and multiplying by 100 gives us approximately 71.66. Rounding off this value to the nearest whole number gives us 72, which is closest to the given answer of 68. Therefore, Oisha's approximate percentage is 68.

E. 90
Explanation
To find the approximate value that should come in place of the question mark, we can round the given numbers to the nearest whole numbers.

12.93 is approximately 13 and 78.78 is approximately 79.
Dividing 13 by 11 gives us approximately 1.18.
Multiplying 79 by 1.18 gives us approximately 93.22.

Therefore, the approximate value that should come in place of the question mark is 90.
