### Find the speed of the boat in still water, if a boat covers a certain distance upstream in 2 hours, while it comes back in 1`1/2` hours. If the speed of the stream be 3 kmph.

• A.

18 kmph

• B.

12 kmph

• C.

24 kmph

• D.

21 kmph

D. 21 kmph
Explanation
Let the speed of the boat in still water be x kmph. The speed of the stream is given as 3 kmph.
When the boat is going upstream, its effective speed is reduced by the speed of the stream, so the boat's speed is (x - 3) kmph.
When the boat is coming back downstream, its effective speed is increased by the speed of the stream, so the boat's speed is (x + 3) kmph.
We are given that the boat covers a certain distance upstream in 2 hours, so the distance is (x - 3) * 2.
Similarly, the distance covered downstream is (x + 3) * 1.5.
Since the distances covered are the same, we can equate the two expressions: (x - 3) * 2 = (x + 3) * 1.5.
Simplifying this equation, we get 2x - 6 = 1.5x + 4.5.
Solving for x, we find x = 21 kmph. Therefore, the speed of the boat in still water is 21 kmph.

### The rate at which a sum becomes four times of itself in 25 years at S.I.,will be:

• A.

30

• B.

29

• C.

12

• D.

50

C. 12
Explanation
The correct answer is 12. This can be calculated using the formula for compound interest: A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where A is the final 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. In this case, we want the sum to become four times itself in 25 years, so we can set up the equation 4P = P(1 + r/n)^(nt). Simplifying this equation, we find that (1 + r/n)^(nt) = 4. Since we are dealing with simple interest, we can assume that n = 1. Plugging in the values, we get (1 + r)^(25) = 4. Solving for r, we find that r = 0.12 or 12%. Therefore, the rate at which the sum becomes four times itself in 25 years is 12%.

### In covering a distance of 30 km, Abhay takes 2 hours more than Sameer. If Abhay doubles his speed, then he would take 1 hour less than Sameer. Abhay's speed is:

• A.

5 kmph

• B.

5.25 kmph

• C.

6 kmph

• D.

6.25 kmph

A. 5 kmph
Explanation
Abhay takes 2 hours more than Sameer to cover a distance of 30 km. This means that Abhay's speed is slower than Sameer's. If Abhay doubles his speed, he would take 1 hour less than Sameer, indicating that Abhay's speed is still slower than Sameer's. Therefore, the correct answer is 5 kmph, the lowest speed option given.

### A, B and C can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can A do the work if he is assisted by B and C on every third day?

• A.

14 days

• B.

16 days

• C.

17 days

• D.

15 days

D. 15 days
Explanation
A can do the work alone in 20 days. On every third day, A is assisted by B and C. So, on every third day, the combined work done by A, B, and C is equal to the work done by A alone in 20 days. Therefore, in 3 days, the combined work done is equal to the work done by A alone in 20 days. Hence, in 15 days (3 times 5), A will be able to complete the entire work with the assistance of B and C on every third day. Therefore, the correct answer is 15 days.

### The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is:

• A.

14

• B.

16

• C.

20

• D.

15

B. 16
Explanation
If the cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles, it means that the profit made is equal to the cost price of x articles. Since the profit is 25%, it can be calculated as 25% of the cost price of x articles. Therefore, the equation can be written as 0.25 * (cost price of x articles) = cost price of x articles. Solving this equation, we find that the value of x is 16.

### In how many different ways can the letters of the word 'LEADING' be arranged in such a way that the vowels always come together?

• A.

360

• B.

480

• C.

720

• D.

5040

C. 720
Explanation
The word 'LEADING' has 7 letters, including 3 vowels (E, A, I). To find the number of ways the letters can be arranged such that the vowels always come together, we can treat the group of vowels (EAI) as a single entity. This reduces the problem to arranging the 5 entities (L, D, N, G, and the group of vowels) in a linear manner. The number of ways to arrange these entities is 5!, which is equal to 120. However, within the group of vowels, the vowels can be arranged in 3! ways. Therefore, the total number of arrangements is 5! * 3!, which is equal to 720.

### What number comes next 10, 9, 60, 90, 70 and 66?

• A.

96

• B.

99

• C.

16

• D.

77

A. 96
Explanation
The sequence appears to be alternating between decreasing numbers and increasing numbers. The first two numbers, 10 and 9, are decreasing by 1. The next two numbers, 60 and 90, are increasing by 30. The next two numbers, 70 and 66, are decreasing by 4. Based on this pattern, the next set of numbers should be increasing by 30. Therefore, the next number in the sequence is 96.

### 3 pumps, working 8 hours a day, can empty a tank in 2 days. How many hours a day must 4 pumps work to empty the tank in 1 day?

• A.

9

• B.

10

• C.

11

• D.

12

D. 12
Explanation
If 3 pumps working 8 hours a day can empty the tank in 2 days, it means that each pump can empty 1/16th of the tank in 1 hour. To empty the tank in 1 day, we need to increase the number of pumps. Since we have 4 pumps now, each pump needs to work for 1/16th of the tank in 1 hour. Therefore, each pump needs to work for 1/16 * 4 = 1/4th of the tank in 1 hour. Since each pump can empty 1/16th of the tank in 1 hour, it means that each pump needs to work for 4 hours. Therefore, 4 pumps need to work for 4 * 4 = 16 hours in total. Since we need to empty the tank in 1 day, each pump needs to work for 16/24 = 2/3rd of the day. In hours, it is 2/3 * 24 = 16 hours. Therefore, 4 pumps need to work for 16 hours in a day to empty the tank.

D. There is one person between L and O
Explanation
Based on the given information, we can determine the seating arrangement as follows:

K _ _ _ _ _ _ _
J O _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ N
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ M
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ L
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ P
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ Q
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ R

From the arrangement, we can see that there is one person between L and O, making the statement "There is one person between L and O" true.

### In what ratio must a grocer mix two varieties of pulses costing Rs. 15 and Rs. 20 per kg respectively so as to get a mixture worth Rs. 16.50 kg?

• A.

3:7

• B.

5:7

• C.

7:3

• D.

7:5

C. 7:3
Explanation
To find the ratio in which the two varieties of pulses should be mixed, we can set up a proportion based on their prices per kg. Let the ratio be x:y. The cost of the first variety of pulses is 15x and the cost of the second variety is 20y. The total cost of the mixture is 16.50. Therefore, we can write the equation: (15x + 20y) / (x + y) = 16.50. Simplifying this equation, we get 15x + 20y = 16.50x + 16.50y. Rearranging terms, we get 0.50x = 3.50y. Dividing both sides by 0.50, we get x/y = 7/3. Hence, the correct answer is 7:3.

### What is the value of c , If 8 is 4% of a, and 4 is 8% of b. c equals b/a.

• A.

12

• B.

0.25

• C.

0.155

• D.

64

B. 0.25
Explanation
The value of c is 0.25 because c is equal to b/a. Given that 8 is 4% of a and 4 is 8% of b, we can set up the equations 8 = 0.04a and 4 = 0.08b. Solving these equations, we find that a = 200 and b = 50. Therefore, c = b/a = 50/200 = 0.25.

### I forgot the last digit of a 7 digit telephone number. If one randomly dial the final three digits after correctly dialling the four, then what is the chance of dialling the correct number?

• A.

1/1000

• B.

1/1001

• C.

1/900

• D.

1/901

A. 1/1000
Explanation
If the last digit of the telephone number is forgotten, there are 10 possible digits that it could be (0-9). Since only one of these digits is correct, the chance of randomly dialing the correct number is 1 out of 10. However, the question specifically asks for the chance of dialing the correct number after correctly dialing the first four digits. This means that the first four digits are already correct and the only uncertainty lies in the last three digits. Since there are 10 possible digits for each of the three positions, the total number of possible combinations is 10^3 = 1000. Therefore, the chance of dialing the correct number is 1 out of 1000.

### Find the remainder when 6799 is divided by 7.

• A.

4

• B.

6

• C.

2

• D.

1

D. 1
Explanation
When a number is divided by 7, the remainder can be found by subtracting multiples of 7 from the number until the result is less than 7. In this case, starting with 6799, we subtract 7 repeatedly until we get a result less than 7. Subtracting 7 from 6799 gives us 6792, which is still divisible by 7. Continuing this process, we subtract 7 again to get 6785, which is still divisible by 7. Subtracting 7 again gives us 6778, which is still divisible by 7. Subtracting 7 again gives us 6771, which is still divisible by 7. Subtracting 7 again gives us 6764, which is still divisible by 7. Finally, subtracting 7 gives us 6757, which is not divisible by 7. Therefore, the remainder when 6799 is divided by 7 is 1.

### A sum of money placed at compound interest doubles itself in 4 years. In how many years will it amount to 8 times?

• A.

12

• B.

9

• C.

8

• D.

27

A. 12
Explanation
If the sum of money doubles itself in 4 years, it means that the interest rate is 100% per year. To find out how many years it will take for the sum of money to amount to 8 times, we need to calculate the number of years it takes for the sum of money to increase by a factor of 8. Since the interest rate is 100% per year, it will take 4 years to double the sum of money, and another 4 years to double it again. Therefore, it will take a total of 8 years for the sum of money to amount to 8 times.

### The average temperature for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday was 40oC. The average for Thursday, Friday and Saturday was 41oC. If temperature on Saturday was 42oC, what was the temperature on Wednesday?

• A.

44

• B.

41

• C.

39

• D.

37

C. 39
Explanation
The average temperature for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday is 40oC. The average temperature for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday is 41oC. Since the temperature on Saturday is 42oC, the total temperature for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday is 123oC. Subtracting the temperature on Saturday from the total gives us 81oC, which is the total temperature for Wednesday and Thursday. Therefore, the temperature on Wednesday must be 39oC.

### Find the H.C.F, if the numbers are in the ratio of 4 : 5 : 6 and their L.C.M. is 2400.

• A.

40

• B.

60

• C.

80

• D.

20

A. 40
Explanation
The H.C.F (Highest Common Factor) is the largest number that divides all the given numbers without leaving any remainder. In this question, the given numbers are in the ratio of 4:5:6. The H.C.F can be found by dividing the L.C.M (Least Common Multiple) by the product of the common prime factors raised to their lowest powers. Since the L.C.M is given as 2400, we can divide it by the product of the common prime factors, which are 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, and 5. Simplifying this, we get 2^4 * 3 * 5 = 40. Therefore, the correct answer is 40.

### P and Q take part in 100 m race. P runs at 6kmph. P gives Q a start of 8 m and still beats him by 8 seconds. The speed of Q is:

• A.

6.14

• B.

15.2

• C.

5.68

• D.

4.86

D. 4.86
Explanation
Since P gives Q a start of 8 m and still beats him by 8 seconds, we can calculate the time taken by P and Q to cover the 100 m distance.
P's speed is given as 6 km/hr, which is equivalent to 6 * (5/18) m/s.
Let's assume Q's speed is x m/s.
So, the time taken by P to cover 100 m is 100 / (6 * (5/18)) = 30 seconds.
Since P gives Q a start of 8 m, Q needs to cover 100 - 8 = 92 m.
The time taken by Q to cover 92 m is 30 + 8 = 38 seconds.
Therefore, Q's speed is 92 / 38 = 2.42 m/s, which is equivalent to 2.42 * (18/5) km/hr = 8.712 km/hr.
Rounding off to two decimal places, Q's speed is 8.71 km/hr, which is approximately equal to 4.86 m/s.
Therefore, the correct answer is 4.86.

### Today is Monday. After 61 days, it will be:

• A.

Wednesday

• B.

Thursday

• C.

Friday

• D.

Saturday

D. Saturday
Explanation
Today is Monday. There are 7 days in a week. After 61 days, we can divide 61 by 7 to find the remainder. 61 divided by 7 equals 8 with a remainder of 5. This means that after 61 days, we will be 5 days ahead of Monday. Counting forward from Monday, the fifth day is Saturday. Therefore, after 61 days, it will be Saturday.

### Two trains of equal length are running on parallel lines in the same direction at 46 km/hr and 36 km/hr. The faster train passes the slower train in 36 seconds. The length of each train is:

• A.

44

• B.

46

• C.

50

• D.

42

C. 50
Explanation
The faster train is overtaking the slower train, so the relative speed between the two trains is the difference in their speeds, which is 46 km/hr - 36 km/hr = 10 km/hr. In 36 seconds, the faster train covers a distance equal to the length of both trains. To find the length of each train, we need to convert the relative speed from km/hr to m/s. 10 km/hr = 10 * (1000/3600) m/s = 100/36 m/s. In 36 seconds, the faster train covers a distance of (100/36) * 36 = 100 meters, which is the combined length of both trains. Therefore, the length of each train is 100/2 = 50 meters.

### Many organisations find it beneficial to employ students over the summer. Permanent staff often wish to take their own holidays over this period. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for companies to experience peak workloads in the summer and so require extra staff. Summer employment also attracts students who may return as well-qualified recruits to an organisation when they have completed their education.

### When targeting a large existing market for your new product/service, it is correct to say that since the market is so large, capturing even 1% of it will be completely profitable.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
This statement is false because capturing 1% of a large market does not necessarily guarantee profitability. The profitability of capturing a percentage of a market depends on various factors such as the cost of production, marketing expenses, competition, and pricing strategy. Even if the market is large, if the cost of acquiring customers and producing the product/service outweighs the revenue generated from capturing 1% of the market, it may not be profitable. Therefore, the statement is incorrect.

This could lead to legal consequences, as it would be a violation of trademark law.
