### I. 10x^2 + 11x + 1 = 0II. 12y^2 - y - 1 = 0

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

3

• D.

4

A. 1
Explanation
The given answer, 1, is the correct answer because it represents the number of solutions for the given equations. In both equations, the highest exponent is 2, indicating that they are quadratic equations. A quadratic equation can have either 0, 1, or 2 solutions. Since the given equations are in the form of ax^2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, and c are constants, they can be solved using the quadratic formula. The quadratic formula states that if the discriminant (b^2 - 4ac) is positive, there are 2 real solutions. If the discriminant is zero, there is 1 real solution. And if the discriminant is negative, there are no real solutions. Therefore, the correct answer is 1, indicating that both equations have 1 real solution.

D. 5
Explanation
The correct answer is 5 because it is the only option that satisfies both equations. By factoring the equations, we can see that (x-17)(x+3) = 0 for the first equation, and (y-17)(y-18) = 0 for the second equation. Therefore, x = 17 and y = 17 or y = 18. Only option 5 satisfies both conditions, making it the correct answer.

### DIRECTIONS for the questions 3 to 4:  In the following series, one of the terms given is wrong. Find that term and mark that as your answer40 20 24 30 60 150

• A.

24

• B.

60

• C.

20

• D.

30

A. 24
Explanation
In the given series, all the terms are obtained by multiplying the previous term by a certain number. Starting with 40, the first term, the second term is obtained by dividing 40 by 2, the third term is obtained by multiplying 20 by 1.2, the fourth term is obtained by multiplying 24 by 1.25, the fifth term is obtained by multiplying 30 by 2, and the sixth term is obtained by multiplying 60 by 2.5. Therefore, the correct term in the series should be obtained by multiplying the previous term by 1.25. However, the term 24 is not obtained by this rule, so it is the wrong term in the series.

### The distance between point A and B is 722 km. At 8 am a car starts from point A (towards point B) at 46 kmph and at 10 am another car starts points B ( towards point A) at 38 kmph. At what time will they meet?

• A.

6.30 pm

• B.

5.30 pm

• C.

4.30 pm

• D.

5 pm

B. 5.30 pm
Explanation
The first car starts at 8 am and travels at a speed of 46 kmph. The second car starts at 10 am and travels at a speed of 38 kmph. This means that the first car has a 2-hour head start. In those 2 hours, the first car would have traveled 92 km (46 kmph * 2 hours). The remaining distance between the two cars is 722 km - 92 km = 630 km. When both cars are moving towards each other, their combined speed is 46 kmph + 38 kmph = 84 kmph. To cover the remaining distance of 630 km at a speed of 84 kmph, it would take them 630 km / 84 kmph = 7.5 hours. Adding the 2-hour head start, the total time it would take for them to meet is 7.5 hours + 2 hours = 9.5 hours. If the first car starts at 8 am, they would meet at 8 am + 9.5 hours = 5.30 pm. Therefore, the correct answer is 5.30 pm.

### The average weight of boys in a class is 56 kg and the average weight of girls in the same class is 41 kg. If the average weight of the entire class is 47.25 kg, then find that the number of girls constitutes what percent of the total number of students in the class?

• A.

581⁄3

• B.

632⁄3

• C.

562⁄3

• D.

60

A. 581⁄3
Explanation
Let's assume that there are x girls in the class. Since the average weight of girls is 41 kg, the total weight of all the girls would be 41x kg.

Similarly, let's assume that there are y boys in the class. Since the average weight of boys is 56 kg, the total weight of all the boys would be 56y kg.

The average weight of the entire class is given as 47.25 kg. So, the total weight of the entire class would be 47.25 times the total number of students in the class.

We can set up the equation:
(41x + 56y) / (x + y) = 47.25

Simplifying this equation, we get:
41x + 56y = 47.25(x + y)
41x + 56y = 47.25x + 47.25y
8.25y = 6.25x
y/x = 5/8

Therefore, the number of girls constitutes 5/8 or 62 3/3% of the total number of students in the class.

### A & B started a business together by investing Rs. 36000/- and Rs. 42000/- respectively. Both of them invested for one year whereas after 6 months from the start C joined them by investing a certain amount. If they earned an annual profit of Rs. 39,200/- out of which C’s share is Rs. 7350/-. What is the investment of C?

• A.

Rs. 24000/-

• B.

Rs. 36000/-

• C.

Rs. 27000/-

• D.

Rs. 33000/-

B. Rs. 36000/-
Explanation
Since A and B invested for the entire year, their total investment for the year is Rs. 36,000 + Rs. 42,000 = Rs. 78,000.
Let's assume C's investment is x.
Since C joined after 6 months, his investment is only for half the year.
So, C's share of the profit is (x/78,000) * Rs. 39,200 = Rs. 7350.
Simplifying this equation, we get x = Rs. 36,000.
Therefore, the investment of C is Rs. 36,000.

### A rectangular plot, 42m long and 32m wide, has two concrete crossroads (of same width) running in the middle of the plot (one parallel to length and the other parallel to breadth). The rest of the plot is used as a lawn. If the area of the lawn is 1064 sq. m., what is the width of the roads?

• A.

3m

• B.

4.5m

• C.

5m

• D.

4m

D. 4m
Explanation
Since the total area of the rectangular plot is given as 1064 sq. m. and the length and width of the plot are known, we can calculate the area of the roads by subtracting the area of the lawn from the total area. The area of the lawn is given as 1064 sq. m., so the area of the roads is (42 * 32) - 1064 = 1344 - 1064 = 280 sq. m. Since the two roads are of the same width, we divide the area of the roads by 2 to get the width of each road. Therefore, the width of each road is 280 / 2 = 140 sq. m. Since the width of the roads is given in meters, we convert the area from sq. m. to meters by taking the square root, which gives us the width of each road as 4m.

### A jar was containing 60 liters of mixture of milk and water in the ratio 7:5. From this jar 12 litres of mixtures was taken out and 8 litres of pure milk was added. What is the respective ratio of milk and water in the mixture after the final operation?

• A.

9:5

• B.

4:3

• C.

9:7

• D.

6:5

A. 9:5
Explanation
After taking out 12 liters of the mixture, there are 48 liters of the mixture left in the jar. Since the original ratio of milk to water is 7:5, we can calculate that there are 28 liters of milk and 20 liters of water in the 48 liters of the mixture.

Then, 8 liters of pure milk is added to the jar, making the total amount of milk 28 + 8 = 36 liters. The amount of water remains the same at 20 liters.

Therefore, the respective ratio of milk to water in the mixture after the final operation is 36:20, which simplifies to 9:5.
