A train 125 m long passes a man, running at 5 km/hr in the same direction
in which the train is going, in 10 seconds. The speed of the train is:
Correct Answer
B. 50 km/hr
Explanation
The man is running in the same direction as the train, so his speed needs to be subtracted from the relative speed of the train to calculate the actual speed of the train. The length of the train is given as 125 m and the time taken to pass the man is given as 10 seconds. We can use the formula speed = distance/time to find the relative speed of the train. The relative speed is 125/10 = 12.5 m/s. To convert this to km/hr, we multiply by 18/5, which gives us 45 km/hr. However, this is the relative speed, so we need to subtract the speed of the man, which is 5 km/hr. Therefore, the speed of the train is 45 - 5 = 40 km/hr. None of the given options match this speed, so the correct answer is not available.

A person crosses a 600 m long street in 5 minutes. What is his speed in km per hour?
Correct Answer
B. 7.2
Explanation
To find the speed in km per hour, we need to convert the distance from meters to kilometers and the time from minutes to hours. Since there are 1000 meters in a kilometer, the distance is 600/1000 = 0.6 km. And since there are 60 minutes in an hour, the time is 5/60 = 1/12 hours. To find the speed, we divide the distance by the time: 0.6 / (1/12) = 0.6 * 12 = 7.2 km/h. Therefore, the person's speed is 7.2 km per hour.

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
hapllesh means cloudburst
srenchoch means pinball
resbosrench means ninepin
Which word could mean "cloud nine"?
Correct Answer
D. Haplresbo
Explanation
The artificial language seems to follow a pattern where the first syllable of a word represents the second syllable of the English word and the second syllable of the artificial word represents the first syllable of the English word. Applying this pattern, "haplresbo" can be broken down into "hapl" and "resbo", which can be rearranged to form "cloud" and "nine" respectively. Therefore, "haplresbo" could mean "cloud nine".

In a shower, 5 cm of rain falls. The volume of water that falls on 1.5 hectares of ground is:
Correct Answer
B. 750 cu. m
Explanation
To find the volume of water that falls on 1.5 hectares of ground, we need to multiply the area of the ground (in square meters) by the depth of the rain (in meters). First, we convert 1.5 hectares to square meters by multiplying it by 10,000 (1 hectare = 10,000 square meters). So, the area of the ground is 15,000 square meters. Then, we multiply the area by the depth of the rain (5 cm or 0.05 meters) to get the volume of water. 15,000 square meters multiplied by 0.05 meters equals 750 cubic meters. Therefore, the correct answer is 750 cu. m.

Two numbers are respectively 20% and 50% more than a third number.
The ratio of the two numbers is:
Correct Answer
C. 4:5
Explanation
The two numbers are respectively 20% and 50% more than a third number. To find the ratio between the two numbers, we can assume the third number to be 100. The first number would then be 120 (20% more than 100) and the second number would be 150 (50% more than 100). Simplifying the ratio, we get 120:150, which can be further reduced to 4:5.

If one-third of one-fourth of a number is 15, then three-tenth of that number is:
Correct Answer
D. 54
Explanation
One-third of one-fourth of a number is 15, which means that one-fourth of the number is 45. To find three-tenths of the number, we multiply 45 by 3/10. This calculation gives us 13.5. However, since the answer choices are all integers, we need to round up to the nearest whole number, which is 14. Therefore, the correct answer is 54.

A man has Rs. 480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and
ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the
total number of notes that he has ?
Correct Answer
D. 90
Explanation
The man has an equal number of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes, and ten-rupee notes. Let's assume he has x number of each denomination. Therefore, the total value of the one-rupee notes is 1x, the total value of the five-rupee notes is 5x, and the total value of the ten-rupee notes is 10x. Since the total amount of money the man has is Rs. 480, we can write the equation as 1x + 5x + 10x = 480. Simplifying the equation, we get 16x = 480. Dividing both sides by 16, we find that x = 30. Since x represents the number of notes of each denomination, the total number of notes the man has is 30 + 30 + 30 = 90.

If a - b = 3 and a2 + b2 = 29, find the value of ab.
Correct Answer
A. 10
Explanation
To find the value of ab, we can use the given equations. We are given that a - b = 3 and a^2 + b^2 = 29. We can square the first equation to get a^2 - 2ab + b^2 = 9. Subtracting this equation from the second equation, we get 3ab = 20. Dividing both sides by 3, we find that ab = 20/3, which is approximately 6.67. However, none of the answer choices match this value, so the correct answer is not available.

The average weight of A, B and C is 45 kg. If the average weight of A and B be 40 kg and
that of B and C be 43 kg, then the weight of B is:
Correct Answer
D. 31 kg
Explanation
Given that the average weight of A and B is 40 kg and the average weight of B and C is 43 kg, we can set up the equations: A + B = 80 and B + C = 86. Subtracting the first equation from the second equation, we get C - A = 6. Since A + B + C = 135 (since the average weight of A, B, and C is 45 kg), we can substitute the value of A from the first equation into this equation to get C - 80 + B = 6. Simplifying, we get C + B = 86. Subtracting the second equation from this equation, we get C - B = 0, which means C = B. Therefore, the weight of B is 31 kg.

(xn - an) is completely divisible by (x - a), when
Correct Answer
A. N is any natural number
Explanation
The expression (xn - an) can be factored as (x - a)(xn-1 + xn-2a + xn-3a^2 + ... + a^(n-2)x + a^(n-1)). This means that if (xn - an) is completely divisible by (x - a), then (xn - an) can be divided by (x - a) without any remainder. Since (x - a) is a linear factor, it will divide (xn - an) for any value of n, whether n is natural, even, odd, or prime. Therefore, the correct answer is that n can be any natural number.

In the first 10 overs of a cricket game, the run rate was only 3.2. What should be the run rate in the remaining 40 overs to reach the target of 282 runs?
Correct Answer
A. 6.25
Explanation
To reach a target of 282 runs in 50 overs, the team would need to score at a run rate of 5.64 runs per over. Since the run rate in the first 10 overs was only 3.2, the team would need to score at a higher run rate in the remaining 40 overs to compensate for the slower start. To calculate the required run rate, we subtract the runs scored in the first 10 overs (32 runs) from the target (282 runs) and divide it by the remaining 40 overs. Therefore, the required run rate is 250 runs divided by 40 overs, which equals 6.25 runs per over.
