Ashish leaves his house at 20 minutes to seven in the morning, reaches Kunal's house in 25 minutes. They finish their breakfast in another 15 minutes and leave for their office which takes another 35 minutes. At what time do they leave Kunal's house to reach their office?
Correct Answer
B. 7.20 a.m
Explanation
Ashish leaves his house at 6:40 a.m. (20 minutes to seven) and reaches Kunal's house in 25 minutes, which means he arrives at Kunal's house at 7:05 a.m. They finish their breakfast in another 15 minutes, so they leave Kunal's house at 7:20 a.m. It takes them another 35 minutes to reach their office, so they will reach their office at 7:55 a.m. Therefore, they leave Kunal's house at 7:20 a.m. to reach their office.

In a row of girls, Rita and Monika occupy a ninth place from the right end and tenth place from the left end, respectively. If they interchange their places, then Rita and Monika occupy a seventeenth place from the right and eighteenth place from the left respectively. How many girls are there in the row?
Correct Answer
B. 26
Explanation
Since Rita is in the ninth place from the right end and Monika is in the tenth place from the left end, it means that there are 8 girls to the right of Rita and 9 girls to the left of Monika. When they interchange their places, Rita will be in the seventeenth place from the right end and Monika will be in the eighteenth place from the left end. This means that there are now 16 girls to the right of Rita and 17 girls to the left of Monika. Therefore, the total number of girls in the row is 16 + 17 + 1 (Rita and Monika) = 34 + 1 = 26.

One morning after sunrise, Reeta and Kavita were talking to each other face to face at Tilak Square. If Kavita's shadow was exactly to the right of Reeta, then which direction was Kavita facing?
Correct Answer
A. North
Explanation
If Kavita's shadow was exactly to the right of Reeta, it means that the sun is on the left side of both Reeta and Kavita. Since the sun rises in the east, it means that Reeta and Kavita are facing west. If Kavita's shadow is to the right, it indicates that Kavita is facing towards the north. Therefore, the direction Kavita is facing is North.

A square field ABCD of side 90 m is so located that its diagonal AC is from north to south and the corner B is to the west of D. Rohan and Rahul start walking along the sides from Band C respectively in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions with speeds of 8 km/hr and 10 km/hr. Where shall they cross each other the second time?
Correct Answer
D. On BC at a distance of 10m from C
Explanation
Rohan and Rahul are walking along the sides of the square field in opposite directions. Since they are walking in opposite directions, they will eventually cross each other. The question asks where they will cross each other the second time.
Since Rohan is walking in the clockwise direction and Rahul is walking in the anticlockwise direction, they will first cross each other at point B. As they continue walking, they will cross each other again at a point on BC. Since Rohan is walking at a slower speed than Rahul, Rahul will cover a greater distance in the same amount of time. Therefore, they will cross each other closer to C.
Hence, they will cross each other the second time on BC at a distance of 10m from C.

Direction: There are two rows of numbers in each question. The upper row is complete and in the lower row one number is missing. Find a suitable number to fill the blank space so that the symmetry with the upper row is maintained
Correct Answer
B. 480
Explanation
In the upper row, the difference between the first and second numbers is 260 (480 - 220), and the difference between the third and fourth numbers is 325 (450 - 125). Therefore, to maintain symmetry, the difference between the fifth and sixth numbers should also be 325. Adding 325 to the fourth number (450) gives us 775, so the missing number in the lower row is 775.

For a given issue of the magazine, 2% of the cost is Rs. 2,000 and the print-run is 12,500 copies. What should be the sale price if the publisher desires a profit of 5 percent?
Correct Answer
D. Rs. 8.40
Explanation
The given pie chart shows the expenditure incurred in printing the magazine. Since 2% of the cost is Rs. 2,000, we can find the total cost by dividing Rs. 2,000 by 2% (which is equivalent to multiplying by 100). This gives us a total cost of Rs. 100,000.
To calculate the sale price, we need to add the desired profit of 5% to the total cost. 5% of Rs. 100,000 is Rs. 5,000. Adding this profit to the total cost gives us Rs. 105,000.
Finally, we divide the total cost plus profit by the print-run of 12,500 copies to get the sale price per copy. Rs. 105,000 divided by 12,500 is Rs. 8.40.
Therefore, the sale price should be Rs. 8.40.
