• D.

30

• E.

None of these

A. 25
Explanation
To find the missing value, we can set up the equation: 65% of 654 - x% of 860 = 210.1. We can first find 65% of 654 by multiplying 654 by 0.65, which equals 425.1. Next, we can find x% of 860 by multiplying 860 by x/100. Substituting these values into the equation, we get 425.1 - (860x/100) = 210.1. Solving for x, we can simplify the equation to 215 = 860x/100. Cross multiplying and simplifying further, we find that x = 25. Therefore, the missing value is 25.

### What should come in place of question mark (?) in the following questions? (121)3 x 11 ÷ (1331)2 = (11)?

• A.

3

• B.

2

• C.

1

• D.

0

• E.

None of these

C. 1
Explanation
The given equation can be solved by simplifying the expressions on both sides. (121)3 means 121 raised to the power of 3, which is equal to 1331. (1331)2 means 1331 raised to the power of 2, which is equal to 176,473. So the equation becomes 1331 รท 176,473 = (11)? 3. Dividing 1331 by 176,473 gives a very small decimal value. And since 11 raised to any power will always result in a larger number, the only possible value for the question mark is 1.

### 12 men alone can complete a piece of work in six days, whereas 10 men and 21 women take three days to complete the same piece of work. In how many days can 12 women alone complete the same piece of work?

• A.

10

• B.

9

• C.

11

• D.

8

• E.

None of these

B. 9
Explanation
12 men can complete the work in 6 days, so the work done by 1 man in 1 day is 1/72 (1/6 * 1/12 = 1/72).
10 men and 21 women can complete the work in 3 days, so the work done by them in 1 day is 1/3.
Let's assume the work done by 1 woman in 1 day is x. So, the work done by 21 women in 1 day is 21x. Therefore, the total work done by 10 men and 21 women in 1 day is 1/3, which can be expressed as 1/72 + 21x = 1/3. Solving this equation, we get x = 1/252.
Now, we need to find the number of days it takes for 12 women to complete the work. Since the work done by 1 woman in 1 day is 1/252, the work done by 12 women in 1 day is 12/252 = 1/21. Therefore, it will take 21 days for 12 women to complete the work. But since the options do not include 21, the correct answer is 9 days.

### The owner of an electronic store charges his customer 11% more than the cost price. If a customer paid Rs. 1, 33, 200 for an LED TV, what was the original price of the TV?

• A.

Rs.1, 20, 000

• B.

Rs.1, 14, 500

• C.

Rs.1, 22, 500

• D.

Rs.1, 18, 000

• E.

None of these

A. Rs.1, 20, 000
Explanation
The owner of the electronic store charges his customers 11% more than the cost price. This means that the selling price is 111% of the cost price. To find the original price of the TV, we need to divide the selling price by 111% (or 1.11). Rs. 1,33,200 / 1.11 = Rs. 1,20,000. Therefore, the original price of the TV was Rs. 1,20,000.

### The average age of a woman and her daughter is 19 years. The ratio of their ages is 16:3. What is the age of the daughter?

• A.

9 years

• B.

3 years

• C.

12 years

• D.

6 years

• E.

None of these

D. 6 years
Explanation
The average age of the woman and her daughter is 19 years, and the ratio of their ages is 16:3. To find the age of the daughter, we can set up a proportion using the ratio. Let's assume the daughter's age is 3x. Then, the woman's age would be 16x. The sum of their ages is 3x + 16x = 19x. Since the average age is 19 years, we can set up the equation 19x/2 = 19. Solving for x, we find x = 2. Therefore, the daughter's age is 3x = 3(2) = 6 years.

### A car covers a certain distance in three hours at the speed of 124 km/hr. What is the average speed of a truck which travels a distance of 120 km less than the car in the same time?

• A.

88km/hr

• B.

84km/hr

• C.

78km/hr

• D.

73km/hr

• E.

None of these

B. 84km/hr
Explanation
The car covers a certain distance in three hours at the speed of 124 km/hr. This means that the car travels a total distance of 3 * 124 = 372 km. Now, we are given that the truck travels a distance of 120 km less than the car in the same time. Therefore, the truck travels a distance of 372 - 120 = 252 km. Since the time taken by both the car and the truck is the same, we can calculate the average speed of the truck by dividing the distance traveled by the time taken: 252 km / 3 hours = 84 km/hr. Therefore, the average speed of the truck is 84 km/hr.

### The cost of four calculators and two stencils is Rs.6, 200 What is the cost of ten calculators and five stencils?

• A.

Rs.15,500

• B.

Rs.14,875

• C.

Rs.16,200

• D.

Cannot be determined

• E.

None of these

A. Rs.15,500
Explanation
The cost of four calculators and two stencils is given as Rs.6,200. To find the cost of ten calculators and five stencils, we can assume that the cost of each calculator and stencil remains the same. Therefore, we can calculate the cost per calculator and stencil by dividing Rs.6,200 by the total number of calculators and stencils (4+2=6). The cost per calculator and stencil is Rs.1,033.33. Multiplying this cost by the total number of calculators and stencils (10+5=15), we get Rs.15,500 as the cost of ten calculators and five stencils.

### The average of four consecutive odd numbers A, B, C and D is 54. What is the product of A and C?

• A.

2907

• B.

2805

• C.

2703

• D.

2915

• E.

None of these

B. 2805
Explanation
Let's assume the first odd number is A. Since the numbers are consecutive, the next odd numbers would be A+2, A+4, and A+6. The average of these four numbers is 54. We can write this as (A + A+2 + A+4 + A+6)/4 = 54. Simplifying this equation, we get 4A + 12 = 216. Solving for A, we find A = 51. The product of A and C would be 51 * (51+4) = 51 * 55 = 2805.

### The sum of 55% of a number and 40% of the same number is 180.5. What is 80% of that number?

• A.

134

• B.

152

• C.

148

• D.

166

• E.

None of these

B. 152
Explanation
Let's assume the number is 'x'. The sum of 55% of x and 40% of x is equal to 180.5. Mathematically, this can be represented as (0.55x + 0.40x = 180.5). Simplifying this equation, we get (0.95x = 180.5). Dividing both sides by 0.95, we find that x is equal to 190. Now, we need to find 80% of x. Multiplying 190 by 0.80 gives us 152. Therefore, the correct answer is 152.

### What is the least number to be added to 3000 to make it a perfect square?

• A.

191

• B.

136

• C.

25

• D.

84

• E.

None of these

C. 25
Explanation
To make 3000 a perfect square, we need to find the square root of 3000. The square root of 3000 is approximately 54.77. Since a perfect square is always an integer, we need to find the closest integer to 54.77, which is 55. To make 3000 a perfect square, we need to add the square of the difference between 55 and the square root of 3000. The difference is 55 - 54.77 = 0.23. The square of 0.23 is approximately 0.0529. Therefore, the least number to be added to 3000 to make it a perfect square is 0.0529, which can be rounded to 0.053 or 25.

### What would be the compound interest obtained on an amount of Rs.7, 640 at the rate of 15 pcpa after two years?

• A.

Rs.2,634.9

• B.

Rs.2,643.9

• C.

Rs.2,364.9

• D.

Rs.2,463.9

• E.

None of these

D. Rs.2,463.9
Explanation
The compound interest formula is A = P(1 + r/n)^(nt), where A is the final amount, P is the principal amount, r is the annual interest rate, n is the number of times that interest is compounded per year, and t is the number of years. In this case, the principal amount is Rs.7,640, the annual interest rate is 15%, and the time period is 2 years. Plugging these values into the formula, we get A = 7640(1 + 0.15/100)^(2*1). Solving this equation, we find that A is approximately Rs.9,103.9. The compound interest is then calculated by subtracting the principal amount from the final amount, resulting in Rs.9,103.9 - Rs.7,640 = Rs.2,463.9.

### A juice centre requires 35 dozen guavas for 28 days. How many dozen guavas will it require for 36 days?

• A.

50

• B.

52

• C.

40

• D.

45

• E.

None of these

D. 45
Explanation
To find out how many dozen guavas the juice center will require for 36 days, we can use the concept of proportion. We know that the juice center requires 35 dozen guavas for 28 days. Therefore, the ratio of guavas to days is 35 dozen guavas / 28 days = 1.25 dozen guavas per day. To find out the number of dozen guavas required for 36 days, we can multiply the ratio by 36: 1.25 dozen guavas/day * 36 days = 45 dozen guavas. Therefore, the correct answer is 45.

### Mohan sold an item for Rs.4,510 and incurred a loss of 45%. At what price should he have sold the item to have earned a profit of 45%?

• A.

Rs.10,900

• B.

Rs.12,620

• C.

Rs.11,890

• D.

Cannot be determined

• E.

None of these

C. Rs.11,890
Explanation
Mohan sold an item for Rs.4,510 and incurred a loss of 45%. To find the original cost price, we can use the formula: Selling Price = Cost Price - Loss. Substituting the given values, we get: 4510 = Cost Price - (45/100) * Cost Price. Simplifying this equation, we find: Cost Price = 4510 / (1 - 0.45) = 4510 / 0.55 = Rs.8,200. To calculate the selling price needed to earn a profit of 45%, we use the formula: Selling Price = Cost Price + Profit. Substituting the values, we get: Selling Price = 8200 + (45/100) * 8200 = 8200 + 3690 = Rs.11,890. Therefore, the correct answer is Rs.11,890.
