Assuming the children group is 50% boys and 50% girls, how many more males swam at the beach in 2006 than in 2005?
Correct Answer
D. 5
Explanation
In order to determine how many more males swam at the beach in 2006 than in 2005, we need to compare the number of males in each year. Since the question states that the children group is 50% boys and 50% girls, we can assume that the number of boys and girls is equal. Therefore, if there were 35 males in 2005, there would be 35 males in 2006 as well. The difference between the number of males in both years would be 0, not 5. Therefore, the given answer of 5 is incorrect.

A car dealership has £600,000 to spend and wants to buy equal numbers of the Taber and Ursa cars. What is the largest number of each type of car that can be ordered?
Correct Answer
D. 21
Explanation
The largest number of each type of car that can be ordered is 21. This can be determined by dividing the total amount of money available (£600,000) by the cost of each car. Since the question states that the dealership wants to buy equal numbers of both types of cars, the maximum number of each type that can be ordered is the same. Therefore, 21 of each type of car can be ordered, resulting in a total of 42 cars.

What is the ratio of the cost of a Taber: Velvo: Xtam?
Correct Answer
C. 1:3:5
Explanation
The given ratio is 1:3:5, which means that for every 1 unit of cost for a Taber, there are 3 units of cost for a Velvo, and 5 units of cost for an Xtam. This ratio implies that the cost of a Taber is the lowest among the three options, followed by the cost of a Velvo, and the cost of an Xtam is the highest.

Legal sector spending on IT hardware, IT software and IT consulting are all set to increase by the same amounts in Year 6 as they did from Year 4 to Year 5. Assuming this is the case, what would be the total legal sector spending in Year 6 on these three IT areas combined?
Correct Answer
E. £110 million
Explanation
The total legal sector spending in Year 6 on IT hardware, IT software, and IT consulting would be £110 million. This is because the question states that the spending on these three areas is set to increase by the same amounts in Year 6 as they did from Year 4 to Year 5. Since the answer choices are given in increments of £10 million, it can be inferred that the increase in spending is £10 million. Therefore, if the spending in Year 5 was £100 million, it would increase by £10 million to reach £110 million in Year 6.

A father is 30 years older than his son. He will be three times as old as his son after 5 years. What is the father's present age?
Correct Answer
C. 40
Explanation
Let's assume the son's present age is x. According to the given information, the father's present age would be x + 30. After 5 years, the son's age would be x + 5 and the father's age would be (x + 30) + 5. The problem states that the father will be three times as old as his son after 5 years, so we can set up the equation: (x + 30) + 5 = 3(x + 5). Solving this equation, we get x = 10. Therefore, the father's present age is x + 30 = 40.

Find the next term in the series: 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54, ...
Correct Answer
A. 81
Explanation
The given series follows a pattern where each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by 2 or 3 alternately. Starting with 3, the next term is obtained by multiplying 3 by 2, giving 6. Then, 6 is multiplied by 3 to get 18. This pattern continues, with each term alternating between being multiplied by 2 and 3. Therefore, the next term in the series is obtained by multiplying 54 by 2, resulting in 108.

If 30% of a number is 12.6, find the number?
Correct Answer
D. 42
Explanation
If 30% of a number is 12.6, we can set up the equation: 0.3x = 12.6, where x represents the unknown number. To solve for x, we divide both sides of the equation by 0.3, giving us x = 12.6/0.3. Evaluating this expression, we find that x is equal to 42. Therefore, the number is 42.
11.
What number must be added to 6, 16 and 8 to get an average of 13?
Correct Answer
A. 22
Explanation
To find the number that must be added to the given numbers to get an average of 13, we can set up the equation: (6 + 16 + 8 + x) / 4 = 13. Simplifying this equation, we get 30 + x = 52. Solving for x, we find that x = 22. Therefore, the number that must be added to the given numbers to get an average of 13 is 22.

10 cats caught 10 rats in 10 seconds. How many cats are required to catch 100 rats in 100 seconds?
Correct Answer
B. 10
Explanation
If 10 cats caught 10 rats in 10 seconds, it means that each cat caught 1 rat in 10 seconds. Therefore, to catch 100 rats in 100 seconds, the same rate of 1 rat per 10 seconds per cat would be required. Since each cat catches 1 rat in 10 seconds, 10 cats would still be sufficient to catch 100 rats in 100 seconds.

Shehu is two years older than Bisi who is twice as old as Emeka. If the total of their ages be 27, then how old is Bisi?
Correct Answer
D. 10
Explanation
Let's assume Emeka's age as x. According to the given information, Bisi's age is twice as old as Emeka, so Bisi's age is 2x. Shehu is two years older than Bisi, so Shehu's age is 2x + 2. The total of their ages is 27, so we can write the equation as x + 2x + 2 + 2x = 27. Simplifying the equation, we get 5x + 2 = 27. Solving for x, we find x = 5. Therefore, Bisi's age is 2x = 2 * 5 = 10.

A student is ranked 13th from right and 8th from left. How many students are there in total?
Correct Answer
C. 20
Explanation
The student is ranked 13th from the right and 8th from the left. This means that there are 12 students to the right of the student and 7 students to the left of the student. In order to find the total number of students, we add the number of students to the left and right of the student and then add 1 for the student themselves. Therefore, the total number of students is 12 + 7 + 1 = 20.

There are two valves at the bottom of a water tank which allow the tank to be drained. If both valves are opened, how long will it take before the tank is empty?
Statement 1 - If only valve 1 is opened, the tank will be empty in 10 minutes
Statement 2 - If only valve 2 is opened, the tank will be empty in 20 minutes
Which of the statements above make it possible to answer the question.
Correct Answer
C. Both statements together are sufficient, but neither statement alone is sufficient
Explanation
Both statements together are sufficient, but neither statement alone is sufficient.
From statement 1, we know that if only valve 1 is opened, the tank will be empty in 10 minutes.
From statement 2, we know that if only valve 2 is opened, the tank will be empty in 20 minutes.
However, we don't know the rate at which each valve drains the tank. It is possible that one valve drains the tank faster than the other. Therefore, we need both statements together to determine how long it will take for the tank to be empty when both valves are opened.

Of the teams competing in the world archery championships, twenty percent are from Europe. Half as many are from the United States and one twentieth are from Africa. What fraction of teams are from neither Europe, the US or Africa?
Correct Answer
A. 13/20
Explanation
The question states that twenty percent of the teams are from Europe, which means that 80 percent are not from Europe. It also states that half as many teams are from the United States, so 40 percent are from the US. Additionally, it states that one twentieth are from Africa, which is 5 percent. Adding these percentages together, we have 80 percent + 40 percent + 5 percent = 125 percent. Since the total percentage of teams cannot be more than 100 percent, it means that some teams are counted in multiple categories. Therefore, the fraction of teams from neither Europe, the US, nor Africa is 13/20.

How long would you be available for this internship?
Correct Answer
C. 3 months
Explanation
The correct answer is 3 months. This is the recommended duration for the internship. It allows the intern to gain sufficient experience and contribute effectively to the organization. A shorter duration may not provide enough time for the intern to fully understand and complete their assigned tasks. On the other hand, a longer duration may not be feasible for the intern due to personal commitments or other opportunities they may have. Therefore, 3 months strikes a balance between gaining valuable experience and accommodating the intern's availability.
