Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    It takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half of the lake?

    • A.

      42 days

    • B.

      24 days

    • C.

      47 days

    • D.

      12 days

    Correct Answer
    C. 47 days
    Explanation
    The patch covers the entire lake in 48 days, which means that it covers half of the lake in half the time. Therefore, it would take 24 days for the patch to cover half of the lake. However, this answer is not provided in the options. The closest option is 47 days, which is just one day short of half the time it takes to cover the entire lake.

    A bat and a ball cost $1.10 in total. The bat costs $1 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost?

    • A.

      10 cents 

    • B.

      0.10 cents

    • C.

      5 cents

    • D.

      50 cents

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 cents
    Explanation
    Let's assume the cost of the ball is x dollars. According to the information given, the bat costs $1 more than the ball, so the cost of the bat would be x + $1. The total cost of the bat and the ball is $1.10. Therefore, the equation would be x + (x + $1) = $1.10. Simplifying the equation, we get 2x + $1 = $1.10. By subtracting $1 from both sides, we have 2x = $0.10. Dividing both sides by 2, we find that x = $0.05. Therefore, the ball costs 5 cents.

  • 3. 

    If it takes five machines five minutes to make five widgets, how long would it take 100 machines to make 100 widgets?

    • A.

      60,000 seconds

    • B.

      300 seconds

    • C.

      3000 seconds

    • D.

      600 seconds

    Correct Answer
    B. 300 seconds
    Explanation
    If it takes five machines five minutes to make five widgets, then each machine takes five minutes to make one widget. Therefore, 100 machines would still take five minutes to make 100 widgets. Since there are 60 seconds in a minute, five minutes is equal to 300 seconds.

    4 apples & 6 bananas cost £1.56 & 9 apples & 7 bananas cost £2.60, How much one apple & one Banane cost?

    • A.

      1 apple cost £0.14 and 1 banana £0.18

    • B.

      1 apple costs £0.18 and 1 banana costs £0.14

    • C.

      1 apple cost £ 0.28 and 1 banana £0.36

    • D.

      1 apple cost £0.09 and i banana £ 0.07

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 apple costs £0.18 and 1 banana costs £0.14
    Explanation
    The given information states that 4 apples and 6 bananas cost £1.56, and 9 apples and 7 bananas cost £2.60. By subtracting the cost of 4 apples and 6 bananas from the cost of 9 apples and 7 bananas, we can find the additional cost of 5 apples and 1 banana. This is £2.60 - £1.56 = £1.04. Therefore, the cost of 1 apple is £1.04/5 = £0.208, which can be rounded to £0.21. Similarly, the cost of 1 banana is £1.04/5 = £0.208, rounded to £0.21. Hence, the correct answer is 1 apple costs £0.18 and 1 banana costs £0.14.

    Complete the following equation by correctly identifying the missing part of the calculation: 99/?= 24.75 × 24

    • A.

       0.25

    • B.

      0.52

    • C.

      0.75

    • D.

      0.825

    Correct Answer
    A.  0.25
    Explanation
    To find the missing part of the calculation, we need to divide 99 by a number to get the result of 24.75 times 24. By dividing 99 by 24, we get the result of 4.125. Since none of the options match this result, the correct answer must be the closest option, which is 0.25.

    • B.

      84129

    • C.

      47632

    • D.

      72927

    Correct Answer
    C. 47632
    Explanation
    All the given numbers have a pattern except for 47632. If we look at the first and last digit of each number, we can see that they are following a pattern. However, in 47632, the first and last digit are not following the pattern. Therefore, 47632 is the odd one out.

    The pattern in the given sequence is that each number is either the negative or positive counterpart of the next number. The sequence starts with 1, then goes to 2, which is the positive counterpart of 1. The next number is 0, which is the negative counterpart of 1. The pattern continues with 3 and -3, 4 and -4. Therefore, the missing numbers should be -1 and -2, which are the negative counterparts of 2 and 1 respectively.

    Explanation
    In 15 years' time, the combined age of the four brothers will be 107. This means that currently, their combined age is 107 - 15 = 92. In six years' time, each brother will be six years older. Therefore, the combined age of the four brothers in six years' time will be 92 + 6 * 4 = 92 + 24 = 116. However, this is not one of the answer choices provided. Therefore, the correct answer cannot be determined based on the information given.

    At the end of the day, one market stall had 16 apples and 48 oranges left. Another market stall had 36 apples and 24 oranges left. What is the difference between the percentages of apples left in the two market stalls?

    • A.

      60%

    • B.

      25%

    • C.

      37%

    • D.

      35%

    Correct Answer
    D. 35%
    Explanation
    The difference between the percentages of apples left in the two market stalls can be found by calculating the percentage of apples left in each stall and then finding the difference between those percentages. In the first stall, there are a total of 16 apples left out of an initial amount (unknown) of apples. In the second stall, there are 36 apples left out of an initial amount (unknown) of apples. To find the percentage, we divide the number of apples left by the initial amount and multiply by 100. The percentage of apples left in the first stall is (16/unknown) * 100 and the percentage of apples left in the second stall is (36/unknown) * 100. The difference between these two percentages is 35%.

    If Milly gives Tilly £60 the money they have is in the ratio 2:1; however if Tilly gives Milly £10 the ratio is 1:3. How much money have Milly and Tilly before they exchange any money?

    • A.

      70

    • B.

      560

    • C.

      210

    • D.

      220

    Correct Answer
    C. 210
    Explanation
    Let's assume that Milly has x pounds and Tilly has y pounds before exchanging any money. According to the given information, if Milly gives Tilly £60, the ratio of their money becomes 2:1. This means that (x-60)/(y+60) = 2/1. Similarly, if Tilly gives Milly £10, the ratio becomes 1:3. So, (x+10)/(y-10) = 1/3. Solving these two equations simultaneously, we can find that x = 210 and y = 70. Therefore, Milly and Tilly have a total of £210 before exchanging any money.
