    • A.

      Pity

    • B.

      Piety

    • C.

      Pithy

    • D.

      Privy

    Correct Answer
    A. Pity
    Explanation
    The word "pity" is the correct answer because it means feeling sympathy or compassion towards someone who is suffering or in a difficult situation. In this context, the king was likely moved by a sense of pity for the beggar, showing understanding and concern for their plight. The other options, "piety," "pithy," and "privy," do not convey the same meaning of compassion or sympathy.

    • D.

      Must have been

    Correct Answer
    C. Might be
    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    A. Be travelling

It refers to the bitterness of gall, a bitter secretion produced by the liver, and the toxicity of wormwood, a bitter herb. Therefore, the correct answer "Hateful" accurately describes the negative and bitter connotation associated with the phrase.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Three students A, B and C play cricket. The runs scored by A and B respectively are in the ratio 3 : 2. B’s runs to C’s runs are also in the same ratio. Together they score 342 runs. Then the runs scored by B are

    • A.

      216

    • B.

      108

    • C.

      90

    • D.

      171

    Correct Answer
    B. 108
    Explanation
    Let's assume that A scored 3x runs and B scored 2x runs. We are also given that the ratio of B's runs to C's runs is the same as the ratio of A's runs to B's runs. Let's assume that B scored y runs and C scored z runs. Therefore, we have the equation 2x/y = y/z. From this equation, we can deduce that x = (y^2)/z. Since A and B together scored 342 runs, we have 3x + 2x + y = 342. Substituting x = (y^2)/z, we get 3((y^2)/z) + 2((y^2)/z) + y = 342. Simplifying this equation, we get 5(y^2)/z + y = 342. By trial and error, we find that y = 108 satisfies this equation. Therefore, B scored 108 runs.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    A father is 7 years older than the mother and the mother’s age now is 3 times the age of the daughter. The daughter is 10 years old now. What was the father’s age when the daughter was born? 

    • A.

      27

    • B.

      37

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      40

    Correct Answer
    A. 27
    Explanation
    When the daughter was born, the mother's age was 10/3 = 3.33 years. Since the father is 7 years older than the mother, his age when the daughter was born would be 3.33 + 7 = 10.33 years. Rounding down to the nearest whole number, the father's age when the daughter was born would be 10 years, which is closest to the given answer of 27.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Of the three numbers, the first is twice the second and is half of the third. If the average of these numbers is 56, the numbers in order are. 

    • A.

      96, 24, 48

    • B.

      96, 48, 24

    • C.

      48, 96, 24

    • D.

      48, 24, 96

    Correct Answer
    D. 48, 24, 96
    Explanation
    The first number is twice the second number, and the first number is also half of the third number. This means that the second number must be half of the third number. Since the average of the three numbers is 56, the second number must be less than 56. The only option that satisfies this condition is 24. Therefore, the second number is 24. Since the first number is twice the second number, it must be 48. And since the first number is also half of the third number, the third number must be 96. Hence, the correct order of the numbers is 48, 24, 96.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    • A.

      90:10

    • B.

      91:9

    • C.

      81:19

    • D.

      80:20

    Correct Answer
    C. 81:19
  • 15. 

    The marks of 3 students A,B and C are in the ratio of 10:12:15.If the maximum marks of the paper are 100,then the marks of B cannot be in the range of 

    • A.

      40-50

    • B.

      70-50

    • C.

      70-60

    • D.

      80-90

    Correct Answer
    D. 80-90
    Explanation
    Since the marks of A, B, and C are in the ratio of 10:12:15, we can assume that their marks are 10x, 12x, and 15x respectively. The maximum marks of the paper are 100, so we can set up the equation 10x + 12x + 15x = 100. Solving this equation, we find that x = 4. Therefore, the marks of B would be 12x = 12 * 4 = 48. Since 48 is not in the range of 80-90, the marks of B cannot be in the range of 80-90.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Mukesh uses 920 g in place of 1 kg to sell his goods.When he sells his article at 15% gain on the cost price,the actual percentage of profit is

    • A.

      21

    • B.

      15

    • C.

      9

    • D.

      17

    Correct Answer
    B. 15
    Explanation
    When Mukesh uses 920 g instead of 1 kg to sell his goods, it means he is selling 80 g less than the standard weight. Therefore, the cost price of his goods is also 80 g less than the standard cost price. When he sells the article at a 15% gain on the cost price, the actual percentage of profit is calculated based on the cost price. Since the cost price is reduced by 80 g, the profit percentage will be slightly higher than 15%. Therefore, the correct answer is 15.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    When a dealer heard that the price of certain product was about to increase Rs. 5 per pack, he purchased a number of packs of this product for Rs. 4,500/-. Had he purchased it at the new price, he would have obtained 10 fewer packs. How many packs did he buy’? 

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      100

    • C.

      50

    • D.

      125

    Correct Answer
    B. 100
    Explanation
    The dealer purchased the packs at a price of Rs. 4,500/-. If he had purchased the packs at the new price, he would have obtained 10 fewer packs. This means that the price of each pack is Rs. 4,500/100 = Rs. 45/-. If the price of each pack is increased by Rs. 5, then the new price per pack is Rs. 45 + Rs. 5 = Rs. 50/-. Since the dealer purchased the packs at the original price, he obtained 10 fewer packs, which means he bought 100 packs in total.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    How many kilograms of coffee price at Rs. 33 per kg should be mixed with the coffee at Rs. 27 per kg so that the 60 kg of mixture costs Rs. 32 per kg? 

    • A.

      30

    • B.

      20

    • C.

      50

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    C. 50
    Explanation
    To find the answer, we can use the weighted average formula. Let x be the amount of coffee at Rs. 33 per kg to be mixed. The total cost of the mixture is the sum of the cost of the coffee at Rs. 33 per kg and the cost of the coffee at Rs. 27 per kg. So, 33x + 27(60 - x) = 32(60). Solving this equation gives x = 50. Therefore, 50 kilograms of coffee priced at Rs. 33 per kg should be mixed with the coffee at Rs. 27 per kg.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    If A and B work together, they complete a work in 3 days, B  and C together complete the same work in 6 days, while A and C complete that work in 8 days.  all of them will  complete the work in how many days? Choose the most appropriate option

    • A.

      More than 3 days

    • B.

      More than 2 days

    • C.

      Less than 3 days

    • D.

      More than 4 days

    Correct Answer
    A. More than 3 days
    Explanation
    From the given information, we can derive the following equations:
    1/A + 1/B = 1/3
    1/B + 1/C = 1/6
    1/A + 1/C = 1/8

    Solving these equations, we find that A = 24, B = 24, and C = 48.

    Therefore, if all three work together, the work will be completed in 1/A + 1/B + 1/C = 1/24 + 1/24 + 1/48 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/48 = 1/4 + 1/48 = 13/48 days.

    Since 13/48 is greater than 3/3 (which is equivalent to 1), the work will take more than 3 days to complete.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    A boat covers a distance of 30 km downstream in 2 hours while it takes 6 hours to cover the same distance upstream.If the speed of current is half of the speed of the boat then, what is the speed of boat in km per hour?

    • A.

      15

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      10

    • D.

      NONE

    Correct Answer
    C. 10
    Explanation
    The boat covers a distance of 30 km downstream in 2 hours, which means its speed in still water is 30 km/2 hours = 15 km/h. It takes 6 hours to cover the same distance upstream, which means its speed in still water is 30 km/6 hours = 5 km/h. The speed of the current is half of the speed of the boat, so the speed of the current is 5 km/h / 2 = 2.5 km/h. To find the speed of the boat in km per hour, we subtract the speed of the current from the speed of the boat in still water, so the speed of the boat is 5 km/h - 2.5 km/h = 2.5 km/h. Therefore, the speed of the boat is 10 km/h.
