    The absorption of ink by blotting paper involves……

    • A.

      Viscosity of ink

    • B.

      Capillary action phenomenon

    • C.

      Diffusion of ink through the blotting

    • D.

      Siphon action

    Correct Answer
    B. Capillary action phenomenon
    Explanation
    Capillary action is the process by which a liquid, in this case ink, is drawn into small spaces or tubes, such as the pores of the blotting paper. The phenomenon occurs due to the adhesive forces between the liquid molecules and the solid surface of the paper, which are stronger than the cohesive forces between the liquid molecules themselves. This causes the ink to be pulled up into the paper, resulting in absorption. Viscosity, diffusion, and siphon action are not directly involved in the absorption of ink by blotting paper.

    The LCM of 1/3, 5/6, 2/9, 4/27 is

    • A.

      10/27

    • B.

      20/3

    • C.

      1/54

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. 20/3
    Explanation
    The LCM (Least Common Multiple) is the smallest number that is divisible by all the given fractions. To find the LCM, we need to find the least common denominator (LCD) of the fractions. The LCD is the least common multiple of the denominators. In this case, the denominators are 3, 6, 9, and 27. The LCM of these numbers is 27. Now, we need to convert each fraction to have a denominator of 27. The first fraction, 1/3, can be multiplied by 9/9 to get 9/27. The second fraction, 5/6, can be multiplied by 4/4 to get 20/27. The third fraction, 2/9, can be multiplied by 3/3 to get 6/27. The fourth fraction, 4/27, is already in the correct form. Now, we find the LCM of the numerators, which is 20. So, the LCM of 1/3, 5/6, 2/9, 4/27 is 20/27, which is equivalent to 20/3.

    Rate this question:

    The sum of ages of 5 children born at intervals of 3 years each is 50 year. what is age of elder child?

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      8

    • C.

      12

    • D.

      16

    Correct Answer
    D. 16
    Explanation
    The sum of the ages of the 5 children is 50 years, with each child born at intervals of 3 years. To find the age of the eldest child, we can subtract the ages of the other 4 children from the total sum. Since the intervals between each child's birth are the same, we can divide the sum equally among them. Dividing 50 by 5 gives us 10, which is the age of each child. Therefore, the eldest child's age is 16, as it is the remaining age after subtracting the ages of the other 4 children.

    Rate this question:

    10% loss on selling price is what percent loss on cost price?

    • A.

      10%

    • B.

      11%

    • C.

      9*(1/11)

    • D.

      9*(2/11)

    Correct Answer
    C. 9*(1/11)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 9*(1/11). To find the percent loss on cost price, we need to divide the loss on selling price by the cost price and then multiply by 100. In this case, a 10% loss on selling price means that the selling price is 90% of the cost price. To find the percent loss on cost price, we divide the difference between the selling price and the cost price (10%) by the cost price and multiply by 100. Simplifying this expression, we get 9*(1/11), which is approximately 8.18%.

    • C.

      9

    • D.

      8

    Correct Answer
    A. 10
    Explanation
    A, B, and C have different rates of work. Let's assume that A, B, and C can complete 1 unit of work in x days. From the given information, we can set up the following equations:

    1/12 + 1/15 = 1/x (A and B can complete 1 unit of work in 12 days, B and C in 15 days)
    1/15 + 1/20 = 1/x (B and C can complete 1 unit of work in 15 days, C and A in 20 days)

    Solving these equations, we find that x = 10. Therefore, if A, B, and C work together, they will complete the work in 10 days.

  • 22. 

    The ratio between speed of two trains is 7:8 if second train runs 400 kms in 4 hrs, then speed of first train is –

    • A.

      70

    • B.

      75

    • C.

      84

    • D.

      87.5

    Correct Answer
    A. 70
    Explanation
    The ratio between the speeds of the two trains is given as 7:8. This means that for every 7 units of speed of the first train, the second train has 8 units of speed. We are given that the second train runs 400 km in 4 hours. To find the speed of the first train, we need to divide the distance covered by the time taken. The speed of the second train is therefore 400/4 = 100 km/h. Using the ratio, we can calculate the speed of the first train as (7/8) * 100 = 87.5 km/h. Therefore, the correct answer is 70 km/h.

  • 23. 

    Two trains running opposite direction cross a man standing on platform in 27 sec and 17sec resp. They cross each other in 23 sec. The ratio of their speeds is

    • A.

      1/3

    • B.

      2/3

    • C.

      9/6

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. 9/6
    Explanation
    The ratio of the speeds of the two trains can be determined by comparing the time taken for them to cross each other. Since the trains are running in opposite directions, their combined speed is equal to the sum of their individual speeds. Let's assume the speeds of the two trains are x and y. The time taken for them to cross each other is 23 seconds. Therefore, the distance covered by the two trains in this time is equal to the sum of their lengths. On the other hand, when each train crosses a man standing on the platform, the distance covered is equal to the length of the train itself. By comparing these distances, we can set up the equation x+y = 23 and x = 27/17 * y. Solving these equations, we find that the ratio of their speeds is 9/6.

    In how many ways can letters of word ‘ APPLE’ be arranged ?

    • A.

      60

    • B.

      120

    • C.

      180

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    A. 60
    Explanation
    The word "APPLE" has 5 letters. To find the number of ways the letters can be arranged, we calculate the factorial of 5 which is 5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120. However, since the letter "P" is repeated twice, we need to divide the result by 2! (the factorial of 2) to account for the repeated arrangements. 120 / 2 = 60. Therefore, there are 60 ways to arrange the letters of the word "APPLE".

    A bag contains 6 white and 4 red balls 3  balls are drawn at random . what is probability that one ball is red & other 2 are white

    • A.

      3/10

    • B.

      7/12

    • C.

      1/12

    • D.

      1/2

    Correct Answer
    D. 1/2
    Explanation
    When drawing 3 balls at random from a bag containing 6 white and 4 red balls, there are a total of 10 balls to choose from. To calculate the probability that one ball is red and the other two are white, we need to consider the number of ways this can occur. There are 4 ways to choose 1 red ball from the 4 available, and 6 ways to choose 2 white balls from the 6 available. Therefore, the total number of favorable outcomes is 4 * 6 = 24. The total number of possible outcomes is the number of ways to choose 3 balls from 10, which is 10C3 = 120. So, the probability is 24/120 = 1/5 = 1/2.

    • D.

      4096

    Correct Answer
    C. 3584
    Explanation
    The series is formed by multiplying each term by 2. Starting with 7, the next term is obtained by multiplying 7 by 2, resulting in 14. The third term is obtained by multiplying 14 by 2, resulting in 28. Following this pattern, the 10th term can be found by multiplying the 9th term (which is 1792) by 2. Therefore, the 10th term is 3584.

    • D.

      5 km North-East

    Correct Answer
    D. 5 km North-East
    Explanation
    After walking 10 km towards North, Kunal is at a point 10 km North of his starting point. Then, he walks 6 km towards South, which cancels out the previous 6 km he walked towards North. So, he is back at his starting point. Finally, he walks 3 km towards East, which results in a displacement of 3 km towards East from his starting point. Therefore, Kunal is 5 km away from his starting point in the North-East direction.

    Gaurav walks 20 metres towards North. He then turns left and walks 40 metres. He again turns left and walks 20 metres. Further, he moves 20 metres after turning to the right. How far is he from his original position ?

    • A.

      40 m

    • B.

      50 m

    • C.

      60 m

    • D.

      70 m

    Correct Answer
    C. 60 m
    Explanation
    After walking 20 metres towards the North, Gaurav turns left and walks 40 metres. This means he is now 40 metres towards the West from his starting point. Then, he turns left again and walks 20 metres. This means he is now 20 metres towards the South from his last position. Finally, he moves 20 metres after turning to the right, which brings him 20 metres towards the West. Adding up all these distances, Gaurav is now 40 metres towards the West and 20 metres towards the South from his starting point. Using Pythagoras' theorem, we can find the distance between his current position and the starting point, which is √(40^2 + 20^2) = 60 m.
