    Assuming the children group is 50% boys and 50% girls, how many more males swam at the beach in 2006 than in 2005?

    • A.

      35

    • B.

      45

    • C.

      10

    • D.

      5

    • E.

      Cannot say

    Correct Answer
    D. 5
    Explanation
    The question assumes that the children group is evenly split between boys and girls. Therefore, to find the difference in the number of males who swam at the beach in 2006 compared to 2005, we subtract the number of males in 2005 from the number of males in 2006. Since the answer is 5, it means that there were 5 more males who swam at the beach in 2006 than in 2005.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    A car dealership has £600,000 to spend and wants to buy equal numbers of the Taber and Ursa cars. What is the largest number of each type of car that can be ordered?

    • A.

      27

    • B.

      48

    • C.

      19

    • D.

      21

    • E.

      22

    Correct Answer
    D. 21
    Explanation
    Since the car dealership has a budget of £600,000, they need to divide this amount equally between the Taber and Ursa cars. In order to find the largest number of each type of car that can be ordered, we need to find a common factor that evenly divides £600,000. By finding the prime factors of £600,000 (2^5 * 3 * 5^5 * 10), we can see that the largest common factor is 21 (3 * 7). Therefore, the dealership can order 21 of each type of car.

    • C.

      1:3:5

    • D.

      2:3:5

    • E.

      1:2:3

    Correct Answer
    C. 1:3:5
    Explanation
    The given ratio of 1:3:5 represents the cost of a Taber, Velvo, and Xtam respectively. This means that for every 1 unit of cost for the Taber, there are 3 units of cost for the Velvo and 5 units of cost for the Xtam.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Legal sector spending on IT hardware, IT software and IT consulting are all set to increase by the same amounts in Year 6 as they did from Year 4 to Year 5. Assuming this is the case, what would be the total legal sector spending in Year 6 on these three IT areas combined?

    • A.

      £75 million

    • B.

      £85 million

    • C.

      £95 million

    • D.

      £105 million

    • E.

      £110 million

    Correct Answer
    E. £110 million
    Explanation
    The correct answer is £110 million. This is because the question states that the spending on IT hardware, IT software, and IT consulting will increase by the same amounts in Year 6 as they did from Year 4 to Year 5. Since the question does not provide specific numbers for the increase, we can assume that the increase is the same for all three areas. Therefore, if the total spending in Year 5 was £75 million, the increase would be added to this amount, resulting in a total spending of £110 million in Year 6.

      Only Year 3

    • E.

      Year 3 and Year 4

    Correct Answer
    E. Year 3 and Year 4
    Explanation
    In the given question, it is stated that the combined IT consultancy income of Make Fit Ltd and Pure Gap plc exceeded £6 million. The only options that mention the year when this happened are "Year 1 and Year 4", "Year 1 and Year 3", "Year 3 and Year 4". Since the correct answer is "Year 3 and Year 4", it implies that the combined income exceeded £6 million in both Year 3 and Year 4, and not in any other years.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A father is 30 years older than his son. He will be three times as old as his son after 5 years. What is the father's present age?

    • A.

      35

    • B.

      45

    • C.

      40

    • D.

      30

    • E.

      50

    Correct Answer
    C. 40
    Explanation
    The father's age is currently 40. This can be determined by setting up an equation based on the information given. Let the son's age be x. The father's age is then x + 30. After 5 years, the son's age will be x + 5 and the father's age will be x + 30 + 5 = x + 35. The question states that the father will be three times as old as his son after 5 years, so we can set up the equation: x + 35 = 3(x + 5). Solving this equation gives x = 10, which means the son is currently 10 years old. Therefore, the father's present age is 10 + 30 = 40.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Find the next term in the series: 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54, ...

    • A.

      81

    • B.

      69

    • C.

      108

    • D.

      72

    • E.

      92

    Correct Answer
    A. 81
    Explanation
    The series follows a pattern where each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by 2. Starting with 3, the next term is 3*2 = 6, then 6*2 = 12, and so on. However, the pattern is broken at the 5th term, where instead of multiplying by 2, the previous term is multiplied by 3 to get the next term. Following this pattern, the next term after 54 would be 54*3 = 162. Therefore, the correct answer is 81.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If 30% of a number is 12.6, find the number?

    • A.

      45

    • B.

      38

    • C.

      40

    • D.

      42

    • E.

      48

    Correct Answer
    D. 42
    Explanation
    If 30% of a number is equal to 12.6, we can set up an equation to find the number. Let's call the number "x". We know that 30% of x is equal to 12.6, so we can write it as 0.3x = 12.6. To solve for x, we divide both sides of the equation by 0.3, which gives us x = 12.6 / 0.3. Evaluating this expression, we find that x is equal to 42. Therefore, the correct answer is 42.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What number must be added to 6, 16 and 8 to get an average of 13?

    • A.

      22

    • B.

      25

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      18

    • E.

      15

    Correct Answer
    A. 22
    Explanation
    To find the number that must be added to 6, 16, and 8 to get an average of 13, we can set up the equation: (6 + 16 + 8 + x) / 4 = 13. By solving this equation, we find that x = 22. Therefore, the number that must be added is 22.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    10 cats caught 10 rats in 10 seconds. How many cats are required to catch 100 rats in 100 seconds?

    • A.

      100

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      50

    • E.

      30

    Correct Answer
    B. 10
    Explanation
    If 10 cats can catch 10 rats in 10 seconds, it means that each cat catches one rat in 10 seconds. Therefore, if we want to catch 100 rats in 100 seconds, we would still need 10 cats since each cat can catch one rat in the same amount of time.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Shehu is two years older than Bisi who is twice as old as Emeka. If the total of their ages be 27, the how old is Bisi?

    • A.

      7

    • B.

      8

    • C.

      9

    • D.

      10

    • E.

      11

    Correct Answer
    D. 10
    Explanation
    Let's assume Emeka's age is x. According to the given information, Bisi's age is twice as old as Emeka, so Bisi's age is 2x. Shehu is two years older than Bisi, so Shehu's age is 2x + 2. The total of their ages is 27, so x + 2x + 2 + 2x = 27. Simplifying this equation, we get 5x + 2 = 27. Solving for x, we find that x = 5. Therefore, Bisi's age is 2x = 2 * 5 = 10.

    • C.

      20

    • D.

      21

    • E.

      22

    Correct Answer
    C. 20
    Explanation
    The student is ranked 13th from the right and 8th from the left. This means that there are 12 students to the right of the student and 7 students to the left of the student. To find the total number of students, we add the number of students to the right and left of the student, and then add 1 for the student themselves. Therefore, 12 + 7 + 1 = 20.

    There are two valves at the bottom of a water tank which allow the tank to be drained. If both valves are opened, how long will it take before the tank is empty? Statement 1 -              If only valve 1 is opened, the tank will be empty in 10 minutes Statement 2 -              If only valve 2 is opened, the tank will be empty in 20 minutes Which of the statements above make it possible to answer the question.

    • A.

      Statement 1 alone is sufficient, but statement 2 alone is not sufficient

    • B.

      Statement 2 alone is sufficient, but statement 1 alone is not sufficient

    • C.

      Both statements together are sufficient, but neither statement alone is sufficient

    • D.

      Each statement alone is sufficient

    • E.

      Statements 1 and 2 together are not sufficient

    Correct Answer
    C. Both statements together are sufficient, but neither statement alone is sufficient
    Explanation
    Both statements together are sufficient to answer the question. Statement 1 tells us that if only valve 1 is opened, the tank will be empty in 10 minutes. Statement 2 tells us that if only valve 2 is opened, the tank will be empty in 20 minutes. Therefore, by combining the information from both statements, we can conclude that if both valves are opened simultaneously, it will take less than 10 minutes for the tank to be empty. However, we cannot determine the exact time it will take without additional information.

  • 17. 

    Of the teams competing in the world archery championships, twenty percent are from Europe. Half as many are from the United States and one twentieth are from Africa. What fraction of teams are from neither Europe, the US or Africa?

    • A.

      13/20

    • B.

      15/20

    • C.

      13/15

    • D.

      17/20

    • E.

      13/17

    Correct Answer
    A. 13/20
    Explanation
    The fraction of teams from Europe is 20%, which means 80% of teams are not from Europe. Half as many teams are from the US, so that would be 10%. One twentieth are from Africa, which is 5%. Adding these percentages together, we get 80% + 10% + 5% = 95%. Therefore, the fraction of teams that are not from Europe, the US, or Africa is 100% - 95% = 5%. This can be simplified to 1/20. So, the correct answer is 13/20.
