How many degrees are there between the two hands of a clock at 6.30 am?
Correct Answer
D. 15
Explanation
At 6:30 am, the minute hand would be pointing at the 6 on the clock, while the hour hand would be pointing slightly past the 6. The angle between the two hands is calculated by taking the difference between the positions of the hour and minute hands. In this case, it would be 30 degrees (360 degrees divided by 12 hours, multiplied by 0.5 hours). Therefore, the correct answer is 30 degrees.

How long will a train 150 metres long and travelling at a speed of 45 kmph, take to cross a platform of length 250 meters?
Correct Answer
B. 32 secs
Explanation
The time taken for the train to cross the platform can be calculated by adding the time taken to cross the train's length and the time taken to cross the platform's length. The time taken to cross the train's length can be calculated using the formula: time = distance/speed. The distance is 150 meters and the speed is 45 kmph, which needs to be converted to m/s by dividing by 3.6. The time taken to cross the platform's length is 250 meters. Adding these two times together gives a total time of 32 seconds.

If in a certain code "RANGE" is coded as 12345 and "RANDOM" is coded as 123678, then the code for the word "MANGO" would be
Correct Answer
D. 82543
Explanation
The code for each letter in the word "RANGE" is determined by its position in the alphabet. The code for "R" is 1, "A" is 2, "N" is 3, "G" is 4, and "E" is 5. Similarly, in the word "RANDOM", the code for "R" is 1, "A" is 2, "N" is 3, "D" is 6, "O" is 7, and "M" is 8. Applying the same pattern, the code for "MANGO" would be 8 for "M", 2 for "A", 3 for "N", 4 for "G", and 3 for "O". Therefore, the correct answer is 82543.

A is 8 miles east of B.C is 10 miles north of B.D is 13 miles east of C and E is 2 miles north of D.Find shortest distance between A and E.
Correct Answer
C. 13 miles
Explanation
The shortest distance between A and E can be found by adding the distances of each segment of the path. A is 8 miles east of B, C is 10 miles north of B, D is 13 miles east of C, and E is 2 miles north of D. Therefore, the total distance is 8 + 10 + 13 + 2 = 33 miles. However, since we are looking for the shortest distance, we need to consider that A and E are in a straight line. Therefore, the shortest distance between A and E is the distance from A to D (8 + 10 + 13 = 31 miles) plus the distance from D to E (2 miles), which equals 33 miles.

How long will a train 150 metres long and travelling at a speed of 45 kmph, take to cross a platform of length 250 meters?
Correct Answer
B. 32 secs
Explanation
The length of the train is 150 meters and the length of the platform is 250 meters. The train is traveling at a speed of 45 kmph. To calculate the time it takes for the train to cross the platform, we need to consider the total distance that the train needs to cover, which is the sum of the length of the train and the length of the platform. Therefore, the total distance is 150 + 250 = 400 meters. Now, we can use the formula time = distance/speed to calculate the time it takes for the train to cross the platform. Plugging in the values, we get time = 400/45 = 8.89 seconds. However, we need to convert the time from seconds to seconds, so rounding off to the nearest second, the answer is 32 seconds.
14.
If in a certain code "RANGE" is coded as 12345 and "RANDOM" is coded as 123678, then the code for the word "MANGO" would be
Correct Answer
D. 82543
Explanation
In the given code, each letter is assigned a unique number. By comparing the codes for "RANGE" and "RANDOM," we can see that the letters 'R,' 'A,' 'N,' and 'G' have the same code in both words, which is 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively. Therefore, the code for the letter 'M' in "MANGO" would also be 1. The letters 'O' and 'D' have the code 3 and 5 respectively in "RANDOM," so the code for 'O' in "MANGO" would be 3 and the code for 'D' would be 5. Hence, the code for "MANGO" would be 82543.

A clock loses 10 minutes each hour. If the clock is set correctly at noon, what time is it when it reads 3 PM?
Correct Answer
B. 3:36 PM
Explanation
The clock loses 10 minutes each hour, so after 3 hours, it would have lost 30 minutes. Therefore, the clock would be 30 minutes behind the actual time. Since the clock was set correctly at noon, it would read 3 PM at 3:30 PM. However, since the clock is 30 minutes behind, the actual time would be 3:30 PM + 30 minutes, which is 3:36 PM.

A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. What is the length of the train?
Correct Answer
D. 150 m
Explanation
The speed of the train is given as 60 km/hr. To find the length of the train, we can use the formula: length = speed × time. The time taken to cross the pole is given as 9 seconds. Converting the speed from km/hr to m/s, we get 60 km/hr = 60 × (1000/3600) m/s = 50/3 m/s. Plugging in the values, we have length = (50/3) × 9 = 150 m. Therefore, the length of the train is 150 m.
22.
A train passes a station platform in 36 seconds and a man standing on the platform in 20 seconds. If the speed of the train is 54 km/hr, what is the length of the platform?
Correct Answer
B. 240 m
Explanation
The length of the platform can be calculated by subtracting the distance covered by the train in 20 seconds (the time it takes to pass the man) from the total distance covered by the train in 36 seconds. The distance covered by the train in 20 seconds can be calculated using the formula Distance = Speed × Time. Converting the speed of the train from km/hr to m/s (by dividing by 3.6), we can calculate the distance covered in 20 seconds. Subtracting this distance from the total distance covered in 36 seconds gives us the length of the platform, which is 240 m.

A alone can do a piece of work in 6 days and B alone in 8 days. A and B undertook to do it for Rs. 3200. With the help of C, they completed the work in 3 days. How much is to be paid to C?
Correct Answer
B. Rs. 400
Explanation
A alone can do 1/6th of the work in a day, while B alone can do 1/8th of the work in a day. Together, they can do 1/6 + 1/8 = 7/24th of the work in a day. Since they completed the work in 3 days, the total work is 3 * (7/24) = 7/8th. The remaining 1/8th of the work was done by C. Since they were paid Rs. 3200 for the entire work, the amount to be paid to C is (1/8) * 3200 = Rs. 400.

The sum of two numbers is 22 & their difference is 4. The numbers are
Correct Answer
D. 13 and 9
Explanation
The sum of two numbers is 22 and their difference is 4. To find the numbers, we can set up a system of equations. Let's call the two numbers x and y. The first equation is x + y = 22, and the second equation is x - y = 4. Solving this system of equations, we can add the two equations to eliminate y and find that 2x = 26, which means x = 13. Substituting x = 13 into one of the equations, we can find y = 9. Therefore, the numbers are 13 and 9.

In an examination 65% of the total examinees passed. If the number of failures is 420, the total number of examinees are
Correct Answer
B. 1200
Explanation
If 65% of the total examinees passed and the number of failures is 420, then the remaining 35% of the examinees failed. We can set up a proportion to find the total number of examinees. Let x be the total number of examinees. We can write the proportion as 35/100 = 420/x. Cross multiplying, we get 35x = 42000. Dividing both sides by 35, we find x = 1200. Therefore, the total number of examinees is 1200.
