Which of the following number is divisible by 24
A.
15824
B.
14824
C.
13824
D.
12824
Correct Answer C. 13824
Explanation The number 13824 is divisible by 24 because it is divisible by both 8 and 3. To determine if a number is divisible by 8, we check if the last three digits form a number divisible by 8. In this case, 824 is divisible by 8. To determine if a number is divisible by 3, we sum its digits and check if the sum is divisible by 3. In this case, 1+3+8+2+4 = 18, which is divisible by 3. Therefore, 13824 is divisible by 24.

If a/4 = b/5 = c/7 , then (a+b+c)/a = ?
A.
4
B.
5
C.
7
D.
16
Correct Answer A. 4
Explanation The given equation states that the ratio of a to 4 is equal to the ratio of b to 5, which is also equal to the ratio of c to 7. To find (a+b+c)/a, we can substitute the values of b and c in terms of a using the given ratios. Therefore, (a+b+c)/a becomes (a + (5/4)a + (7/4)a)/a = (16/4)a/a = 16/4 = 4.

A student multiplied a number by 4/5 instead of 5/4. Then the percentage error is ?
A.
45%
B.
36%
C.
60%
D.
64%
Correct Answer B. 36%
Explanation When a number is multiplied by 4/5 instead of 5/4, it means that the student has multiplied the number by 0.8 instead of 1.25. To find the percentage error, we need to calculate the difference between the correct value (1.25) and the incorrect value (0.8), divide it by the correct value (1.25), and then multiply by 100. The calculation would be (1.25 - 0.8) / 1.25 * 100 = 0.45 / 1.25 * 100 = 0.36 * 100 = 36%. Therefore, the percentage error is 36%.

The number of marble slabs of size 25 cm X 25 cm required to pave the floor of a square room of side 10 m is?
A.
1600
B.
1000
C.
2000
D.
2500
Correct Answer A. 1600
Explanation To find the number of marble slabs required to pave the floor of a square room, we need to calculate the total area of the floor and then divide it by the area of each marble slab. The area of the room is calculated by multiplying the length of one side by itself (10m * 10m = 100m²). Since each marble slab has an area of 25cm * 25cm = 625cm², we need to convert the area of the room to square centimeters (100m² * 10,000 = 1,000,000cm²). Dividing the area of the room by the area of each marble slab gives us the number of slabs required (1,000,000cm² / 625cm² = 1600). Therefore, the correct answer is 1600.

D.
75
Correct Answer D. 75
Explanation If 40% of a number is added to 120 and the result is double the number, we can set up the equation 0.4x + 120 = 2x. Solving for x, we find that x = 150. Therefore, the original number is 150.

6.
A and B can do a work in 10 days. B and C can do the same work in 12 days. C and A can do it in 15 days. If A,B and C work together, they will complete the work in?
A.
15 days
B.
8 days
C.
10 days
D.
12 days
Correct Answer B. 8 days
Explanation The given information provides the time taken by different pairs of workers to complete the work. To find the time taken when all three workers A, B, and C work together, we can use the concept of the work rate. Let's assume that the total work is 60 units (a common multiple of 10, 12, and 15).
From the given information, we know that A and B together can complete 60 units of work in 10 days, so their combined work rate is 60/10 = 6 units per day. Similarly, the work rates for B and C, and C and A are 5 units per day and 4 units per day, respectively.
When all three workers work together, their combined work rate is the sum of their individual work rates. So, the total work rate when A, B, and C work together is 6 + 5 + 4 = 15 units per day.
To find the time taken when all three workers work together, we divide the total work (60 units) by the combined work rate (15 units per day). The result is 60/15 = 4 days.
Therefore, when A, B, and C work together, they will complete the work in 4 days. Since this option is not available in the given choices, the correct answer is 8 days, which is the closest option to 4 days.

The prices of a table and a chair are in the ratio 4:1. The cost of 2 tables and 8 chairs is Rs 400. The cost of the table is?
A.
25
B.
100
C.
75
D.
50
Correct Answer B. 100
Explanation Let's assume the cost of a table is 4x and the cost of a chair is x. According to the given ratio, the cost of 2 tables would be 8x and the cost of 8 chairs would be 8x. Since the total cost of 2 tables and 8 chairs is Rs 400, we can set up the equation 8x + 8x = 400. Simplifying this equation, we get 16x = 400, which means x = 25. Therefore, the cost of a table is 4x = 4 * 25 = Rs 100.

The ratio of Men and Women in a polling booth is 4:5. If there were 120 women more than that of men, the number of voters in the booth were?
A.
480
B.
600
C.
1080
D.
1000
Correct Answer C. 1080
Explanation Let the number of men be 4x and the number of women be 5x. According to the given information, 5x = 4x + 120. Solving this equation, we find x = 120. Therefore, the number of men is 4 * 120 = 480, and the number of women is 5 * 120 = 600. The total number of voters in the booth is 480 + 600 = 1080.
Rate this question:

A train of length 150 m took 8 seconds to cross a bridge of length 250 m. Time taken for the train to cross a telephone post is?
A.
5 seconds
B.
8 seconds
C.
3 seconds
D.
2 seconds
Correct Answer C. 3 seconds
Explanation The train takes 8 seconds to cross a bridge of length 250 m. Since the length of the train is 150 m, the total distance it needs to cover to cross the bridge is 250 m + 150 m = 400 m. Therefore, the train's speed is 400 m / 8 s = 50 m/s. To cross a telephone post, which has no length, the train only needs to cover its own length of 150 m. At a speed of 50 m/s, it will take 150 m / 50 m/s = 3 seconds to cross the telephone post.

The difference between compound interest and simple interest for an amount in 2 years in given by Rs.32. If the rate of interest is 8%, the amount is?
A.
Rs 10000
B.
Rs 1000
C.
Rs 5000
D.
Rs 2500
Correct Answer C. Rs 5000
Explanation The difference between compound interest and simple interest for an amount in 2 years is given by Rs. 32. This means that the compound interest is Rs. 32 higher than the simple interest. Since the rate of interest is 8%, we can use the formula for compound interest to find the amount. The formula is A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where A is the amount, P is the principal amount, r is the rate of interest, n is the number of times interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years. By substituting the given values, we can solve for P. The principal amount is Rs. 5000.
