What is the largest 4 digit number exactly divisible by 88?

• A.

9944

• B.

9999

• C.

9988

• D.

9900

A. 9944
Explanation
To find the largest 4-digit number exactly divisible by 88, we need to find the largest number that is a multiple of both 88 and a 4-digit number. Starting from the largest 4-digit number, 9999, we can divide it by 88 and check if it leaves a remainder. If it does, we move to the next smaller number, 9998, and repeat the process until we find a number that is divisible by 88. In this case, the largest number that satisfies this condition is 9944, which is the correct answer.

A. 4
Explanation
The given numbers are 264, 396, 462, 792, 968, 2178, 5184, and 6336. To determine if a number is divisible by 132, we need to check if it is divisible by both 11 and 12. Divisibility by 11 can be checked by finding the difference between the sum of alternate digits and checking if it is divisible by 11. Divisibility by 12 can be checked by checking if the number is divisible by both 3 and 4. Out of the given numbers, 264, 396, 792, and 6336 satisfy both conditions and are divisible by 132. Therefore, the answer is 4.

A train has a length of 150 meters. It is passing a man who is moving at 2 km/hr in the same direction of the train, in 3 seconds. Find out the speed of the train.

• A.

182 km/hr

• B.

180 km/hr

• C.

152 km/hr

• D.

169 km/hr

A. 182 km/hr
Explanation
The speed of the train can be calculated by subtracting the speed of the man from the relative speed of the train. The relative speed is the speed at which the train is passing the man. In this case, the length of the train is given as 150 meters and the time taken to pass the man is given as 3 seconds. Converting the length of the train to kilometers (150/1000 = 0.15 km) and the time to hours (3/3600 = 0.00083 hours), we can use the formula Speed = Distance/Time to calculate the relative speed of the train as 0.15/0.00083 = 180.72 km/hr. Subtracting the speed of the man (2 km/hr) from the relative speed of the train gives us the speed of the train as 180.72 - 2 = 178.72 km/hr. Rounding this off to the nearest whole number gives us the final answer of 182 km/hr.

In a dairy farm, 40 cows eat 40 bags of husk in 40 days. In how many days one cow will eat one bag of husk?

• A.

1

• B.

40

• C.

20

• D.

26

B. 40
Explanation
The rate of consumption is constant here. Each cow eats the same amount of husk per day, so the number of cows and the number of bags of husk do not change the rate at which one cow will eat one bag of husk. Therefore, one cow will eat one bag of husk in 40 days, just as 40 cows eat 40 bags in the same time period.

Rate this question:

• 5.

A man's age is 125% of what it was 10 years ago, but 83 1/3 % of what it will be after ten 10 years. What is his present age?

• A.

70 yrs

• B.

60 yrs

• C.

50 yrs

• D.

40 yrs

C. 50 yrs
Explanation
The man's age is currently 50 years old. This can be determined by setting up equations based on the given information. Let's call the man's present age "x". According to the first part of the information, x = 1.25(x-10). Simplifying this equation gives us x = 1.25x - 12.5, which further simplifies to 0.25x = 12.5, and x = 50. According to the second part of the information, x = 0.8333(x+10). Simplifying this equation gives us x = 0.8333x + 8.3333, which further simplifies to 0.1667x = 8.3333, and x = 50. Therefore, the man's present age is 50 years old.

Rate this question:

• 6.

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

• A.

6 yrs

• B.

5 yrs

• C.

4 yrs

• D.

3 yrs

C. 4 yrs
Explanation
The sum of ages of 5 children born at the intervals of 3 years each is 50 years. If we assume the age of the youngest child to be x, then the ages of the other children would be x+3, x+6, x+9, and x+12. Adding these ages together, we get x + (x+3) + (x+6) + (x+9) + (x+12) = 50. Simplifying this equation, we get 5x + 30 = 50. Solving for x, we find x = 4. Therefore, the age of the youngest child is 4 years.

If the number 5 * 2 is divisible by 6, then * =?

• A.

2

• B.

6

• C.

3

• D.

7

A. 2
Explanation
If the number 5 * 2 is divisible by 6, then the value of * must be 2. This is because for a number to be divisible by 6, it must be divisible by both 2 and 3. Since 5 * 2 is divisible by 6, it means that 5 * 2 is divisible by both 2 and 3. The only possible value for * that satisfies this condition is 2.

Rate this question:

• 12.

If 15% of 40 is greater than 25% of a number by 2, the number is greater than:

• A.

56

• B.

26

• C.

66

• D.

16

D. 16
Explanation
If 15% of 40 is greater than 25% of a number by 2, it means that 15% of 40 is equal to 25% of the number minus 2. To find the number, we can set up the equation (15/100) * 40 = (25/100) * x - 2. Simplifying this equation, we get 6 = (25/100) * x - 2. Adding 2 to both sides of the equation, we get 8 = (25/100) * x. Multiplying both sides by 100/25, we get 32 = x. Therefore, the number is 32, which is not one of the given options. Hence, the correct answer is not available.

B. 48
Explanation
In this question, we are given that 12.5% of 192 is equal to 50% of x. To find the value of x, we can set up the equation: 0.125 * 192 = 0.5 * x. Simplifying this equation, we get 24 = 0.5 * x. Dividing both sides of the equation by 0.5, we find that x = 48. Therefore, the value of x is 48.
