### What is 50% of 12?

• A.

1.2

• B.

6

• C.

10

• D.

12

### The sum of ages of 5 children born at the intervals of 3 years each is 50 years. What is the age of the youngest child?

• A.

4 years

• B.

8 years

• C.

10 years

• D.

None of these

A. 4 years
Explanation
Let the ages of children be x, (x + 3), (x + 6), (x + 9) and (x + 12) years.

Then, x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 50

5x = 20

x = 4.

Age of the youngest child = x = 4 years.

### Since an immediate change was needed on an emergency basis, _____ by the governor to curtail railway expenditure.

• A.

So it was proposed

• B.

Was proposed

• C.

Because of the proposal

• D.

It was proposed

D. It was proposed
Explanation
The sentence starts with the connector "SINCE" and the blank is after the comma. This means you need a subject, verb or both. Options "A" and "C" are eliminated because they also have connectors. Options "B" is eliminated because it has no subject. Leaving option "D" as the correct option.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### A father's age is five times his son's age. Four years ago the father was 9 times older than his son. How old are the father and son at present?

• A.

30yrs and 6yrs

• B.

25yrs and 5yrs

• C.

40yrs and 8yrs

• D.

None of these

C. 40yrs and 8yrs
Explanation
You can solve this by rough estimation given you have multiple choice here. You can quickly see that each of the first 3 answers satisfy the condition that the father is currently 5 times the age of the son. By subtracting 4 years from each age in each answer you will see them as follows: a: 26 and 2 b: 21 and 1 c: 36 and 4 Now it is clear that the answer is c: 40 and 8 (because 4 x 9 = 36 and 5 x 8 = 40). These questions are why it is important to learn your multiplication tables prior to testing.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### How is my mother's sister's brother's wife's child related to me?

• A.

brother

• B.

uncle

• C.

Cousin

• D.

Nephew

C. Cousin
Explanation
There is an extra relation here to confuse you. The mother's sister's brother is of course the mother's brother. And the brother's wife's child is also the brother's child.

So now you can read it as the mother's brother's child. This is easier to identify the answer as your cousin.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### What is twenty percent of 25 % of 20?

• A.

2

• B.

1

• C.

5

• D.

4

B. 1
Explanation
Work this backwards if it helps. So 25% of 20 = 5 (another way to do this is 20 / 4 = 5). Then 20% of 5 = 1 (another way to do this is 5 / 5 = 1)

Rate this question:

• 7.

### A, e, i, m, q, u, _, _

• A.

Y, c

• B.

B, f

• C.

G, i

• D.

None

A. Y, c
Explanation
The letters are increasing by four increments. You can count this on your hand like this: Thumb: a Pointer Finger: b Middle Finger c Third finger: d Pinky finger: e This shows that each letter is on the thumb and pinky. Make sure you reset each count. So in this case 'e' becomes the thumb (so you sort of count it twice like this). If you're really in a hurry on this it is a good guess that y,c is the correct response because this is the only answer that has a letter AFTER 'u'.
