Statement: A large number of people in ward X of the city are diagnosed to be suffering from a fatal malaria type. Courses of Action: I) The city municipal authority should take immediate steps to carry out extensive fumigation in ward X. II) The people in the area should be advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites.
Correct Answer
E. Both I and II follow
Explanation
Both courses of action follow because they address different aspects of the problem. Course of action I suggests that the city municipal authority should take immediate steps to carry out extensive fumigation in ward X, which can help eliminate the mosquitoes carrying the fatal malaria type. Course of action II suggests that the people in the area should be advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites, which can help prevent the spread of the disease. By implementing both actions, the authorities can effectively tackle the issue of fatal malaria in ward X.

Statement: Severe drought is reported to have set in several parts of the country. Courses of Action: I) Government should immediately make arrangement for providing financial assistance to those affected. II) Food, water and fodder should immediately be sent to all these areas to save the people and cattle.
Correct Answer
B. Only II follows
Explanation
The statement mentions that severe drought has set in several parts of the country. Course of Action II states that food, water, and fodder should immediately be sent to all these areas to save the people and cattle. This action directly addresses the problem of drought by providing essential resources to the affected areas. Course of Action I, on the other hand, suggests that the government should provide financial assistance to those affected. While financial assistance may be helpful, it does not directly address the immediate need for food, water, and fodder that Course of Action II proposes. Therefore, Only II follows.

Statement: Since its launching in 1881, Kitchens Ltd has so far accumulated losses amounting to Sterling 100000. Courses of Action: I) Kitchens Ltd should be directed to reduce wasteful expenditure and to increase sale prices.II) An amount of about Sterling 200 000 should be provided to Kitchens Ltd to make the company economically viable.
Correct Answer
A. Only I follows
Explanation
The statement mentions that Kitchens Ltd has accumulated losses amounting to Sterling 100,000. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that the company should be directed to reduce wasteful expenditure and increase sale prices in order to improve its financial situation. This course of action will help the company become economically viable by cutting unnecessary expenses and generating more revenue. On the other hand, providing an additional amount of about Sterling 200,000 to the company may not be a suitable solution as it does not address the underlying issues of wasteful expenditure and low sale prices. Hence, Only I follows.

Three partners A , B , C start a business . B's Capital is four times C's capital and twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital . If the total profit is Rs 16500 at the end of a year ,Find out B's share in it.
Correct Answer
C. Rs. 6000
Explanation
Let C's capital be x. Therefore, B's capital is 4x and A's capital is 6x. According to the given information, 6x = 3(4x), which simplifies to 6x = 12x. Hence, x = 2x. Now, the total capital is x + 4x + 6x = 11x. B's share in the profit would be (4x/11x) * 16500 = 6000. Therefore, B's share in the profit is Rs. 6000.

Kamal started a business investing Rs 9000. After five months, Sameer joined with a capital of Rs 8000. If at the end of the year, they earn a profit of Rs. 6970, then what will be the share of Sameer in the profit ?
Correct Answer
A. Rs 2380
Explanation
Kamal invested for the entire year, while Sameer joined after five months. This means that Kamal's investment was active for 12 months, while Sameer's investment was active for only 7 months. To calculate their share of the profit, we need to consider the ratio of their investments and the time period. Kamal's share can be calculated as (9000 * 12) / (9000 * 12 + 8000 * 7) * 6970 = Rs 4600. Sameer's share can be calculated as (8000 * 7) / (9000 * 12 + 8000 * 7) * 6970 = Rs 2380. Therefore, Sameer's share in the profit will be Rs 2380.

In an examination 80% candidates passed in English and 85% candidates passed in Mathematics. If 73% candidates passed in both these subjects, then what per cent of candidates failed in both the subjects?
Correct Answer
A. 8
Explanation
The correct answer is 8. To find the percentage of candidates who failed in both subjects, we can subtract the percentage of candidates who passed in both subjects (73%) from 100%. This gives us 27%, which represents the percentage of candidates who failed in at least one subject. However, we need to find the percentage of candidates who failed in both subjects, so we subtract the percentage of candidates who passed in English (80%) and the percentage of candidates who passed in Mathematics (85%) from the 27%. This gives us 8%, which represents the percentage of candidates who failed in both subjects.

4, 7, 12, 19, 28, ?
Correct Answer
D. 39
Explanation
The given sequence follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding consecutive odd numbers starting from 1. For example, 4 is obtained by adding 1 (1+3), 7 is obtained by adding 3 (4+3), 12 is obtained by adding 5 (7+5), and so on. Therefore, the next number in the sequence would be obtained by adding 7 to 28, resulting in 35. However, since 35 is not one of the answer choices, the closest option is 39.

In a lake, there are 10 steps labelled using alphabets from A to J. Starting from step A, every minute a frog jumps to the 4th step from where it started - that is from the step A it would go to the step E and from E it would go to the step I and from I it would go to C etc. Where would the frog be at the 60th minute if it starts at the step A ?
Correct Answer
B. A
Explanation
The frog jumps to the 4th step from where it started every minute. After 1 minute, the frog would be at step E. After 2 minutes, it would be at step I. After 3 minutes, it would be at step C. After 4 minutes, it would be at step G. After 5 minutes, it would be at step B. After 6 minutes, it would be at step F. After 7 minutes, it would be at step J. After 8 minutes, it would be at step D. After 9 minutes, it would be at step H. After 10 minutes, it would be back at step A. Since the frog repeats this pattern every 10 minutes, at the 60th minute, it would be back at step A.

In a row of trees, a tree is 7th from left end and 14th from right end. How many tree are there in the row ?
Correct Answer
C. 20
Explanation
Since the tree is 7th from the left end and 14th from the right end, we can add these two positions together to find the total number of trees in the row. 7 + 14 = 21. However, since the tree itself is counted in both positions, we need to subtract 1 from the total. Therefore, the correct answer is 21 - 1 = 20.

If TOUR is written in a certain code as 1234, CLEAR as 56784 and SPARE as 90847, what will be the 5th digit for SCULPTURE in the same code ?
Correct Answer
D. 0
Explanation
The code is generated by assigning a unique number to each letter of the word. The numbers assigned to the letters in the word TOUR are 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively. Similarly, in the word CLEAR, the assigned numbers are 5, 6, 7, 8, and 4. Applying the same pattern, the numbers assigned to the letters in the word SCULPTURE would be 9, 0, 5, 7, 8, 4, 3, and 4. Therefore, the 5th digit for SCULPTURE in the same code would be 0.
