### Mary, who is sixteen years old, is four times as old as her brother. How old will Mary be when she is twice as old as her brother?

• A.

20

• B.

24

• C.

25

• D.

26

• E.

28

Correct Answer
B. 24
Explanation
Let’s solve this step by step:
Mary is sixteen years old, which is four times the age of her brother. So, her brother is currently
16/4​=4
years old.
We need to find out when Mary will be twice as old as her brother. Let’s say this happens after x years. At that time, Mary will be 16 + x years old and her brother will be 4 + x years old.
Setting up the equation 16 + x = 2 * (4 + x), we can solve for x:
16+x=2∗4+2x
16+x=8+2x
16−8=2x−x
x=8
So, Mary will be twice as old as her brother in 8 years. Therefore, Mary will be
16+8=24
years old at that time.

### Find out the wrong number in the given sequence of numbers: 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

• A.

10

• B.

11

• C.

12

• D.

9

Correct Answer
D. 9
Explanation
To find the wrong number in the sequence 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, let's analyze the pattern:
The sequence appears to be increasing, but we need to check if there's a specific rule it follows.
4: Even
6: Even
8: Even
9: Odd
10: Even
11: Odd
12: Even
The pattern involves alternating between even and odd numbers, except for the number 9, which disrupts this pattern.
However, if we consider the possibility of the sequence intending to be all even numbers, the odd numbers would be the disruptors:
4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
9 and 11 are the odd numbers and are the wrong numbers in the context of an even number sequence.
Since the sequence seems to focus on being all even numbers, 9 is the first number that disrupts this pattern.
Answer:
9 is the wrong number in the given sequence.

### Free notebooks were distributed equally among children of a class. The number of notebooks each child got was one-eighth of the number of children. Had the number of children been half, each child would have got 16 notebooks. Total how many notebooks were distributed ?

• A.

256

• B.

432

• C.

512

• D.

640

• E.

None of these

Correct Answer
C. 512
Explanation
If the number of children had been half, each child would have received 16 notebooks. This means that the total number of notebooks distributed would have been 16 multiplied by the number of children. Since each child received one-eighth of the number of children, the number of children can be calculated by multiplying the number of notebooks each child received by 8. So, by substituting the number of notebooks each child received (16) into the equation, we find that the number of children is 16 * 8 = 128. Therefore, the total number of notebooks distributed is 16 * 128 = 512.

### Father: “What? You crashed the car again?”Son: “__________________________________"Father: “I’m sure it wasn’t. This is the third accident you have had this year.”Son: “You are very angry now, dad. We had better talk about this later on.”

• C.

Why do you ask? Don’t you know it’s too late now?

• D.

Was it worth the money and time you wasted?

• E.

But it wasn’t my fault. You’ve got to believe me.

Correct Answer
E. But it wasn’t my fault. You’ve got to believe me.
Explanation
The son's response of "But it wasn't my fault. You've got to believe me" suggests that he is denying responsibility for the car crash. He is trying to convince his father that he is not to blame for the accident and wants his father to trust him. The father's previous statement about this being the third accident the son has had this year implies that the son has a history of being careless or irresponsible with the car, which may make it difficult for the father to believe him.
