निम्न लिखित गद्यांश को पढ़कर सम्बद्ध वैकल्पिक उत्तरों में से सही उत्तर का चयन कीजिए–सौन्दर्य की परख अनेक प्रकार से की जाती है. बाह्य सौन्दर्य की परख समझना तथा उसकी अभिव्यक्ति करना सरल है. जब रूप के साथ चरित्र का भी स्पर्श हो जाता है तब उसमें रसास्वादन की अनुभूति भी होती है. एक वस्तु सुन्दर तथा मनोहर कही जा सकती है, परन्तु सुन्दर वस्तु केवल इन्द्रियों को सन्तुष्ट करती है, जबकि मनोरम वस्तु चित्त को भी आनन्दित करती है. इस दृष्टि से कवि जयदेव का बसन्त चित्रण सुन्दर है तथा कालिदास का प्रकृति वर्णन मनोहर है, क्योंकि उसमें चरित्र की प्रधानता है. सुन्दर शब्द संकीर्ण है, जबकि 'मनोहर' व्यापक तथा विस्तृत. साहित्य में साधारण वस्तु भी विशेष प्रतीत होती है, उसे मनोहर कहते हैंQUE-कालिदास के प्रकृति वर्णन का आधार है–

B.
आनन्द की मात्रा के आधार पर
C.
इन्द्रियों की सन्तुष्टि के आधार पर
D.
मनोहरता के आधार पर
Correct Answer C. इन्द्रियों की सन्तुष्टि के आधार पर
Explanation The passage states that external beauty can be easily understood and expressed, but when beauty is combined with character, it also evokes a sense of pleasure. While a beautiful object may only satisfy the senses, a charming object also delights the mind. The passage further explains that the word "sundar" (beautiful) is limited, while "manohar" (charming) is more comprehensive and extensive. In literature, even ordinary objects can appear special and enchanting, which is why they are called "manohar." Therefore, based on this explanation, the correct answer is "इन्द्रियों की सन्तुष्टि के आधार पर" (based on satisfaction of the senses).

When a plot is sold for Rs. 18,700, the owner loses 15%. At what price must that plot be sold in order to gain 15%?
A.
Rs. 21,000
B.
Rs. 22,500
C.
Rs. 25,300
D.
Rs. 25,800
Correct Answer C. Rs. 25,300
Explanation The owner originally sold the plot for Rs. 18,700 but incurred a loss of 15%. To find the selling price at which the owner would gain 15%, we need to calculate the original cost of the plot. We can do this by dividing the selling price by (100% - loss percentage), which in this case is (100% - 15%) = 85%. Therefore, the original cost of the plot is Rs. 18,700 / 0.85 = Rs. 22,000. To gain 15% profit, the plot must be sold for 115% of the original cost, which is 115% of Rs. 22,000 = Rs. 25,300. Therefore, the correct answer is Rs. 25,300.

A.
3
B.
4
C.
5
D.
6
Correct Answer A. 3
Explanation The roots of a quadratic equation in the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0 can be found using the quadratic formula. In this case, we are given that the roots are in the ratio of 2:3.
Let the roots be 2k and 3k.
Using the quadratic formula, we can equate the discriminant to zero to find the value of b.
The discriminant, b^2 - 4ac, is equal to (-5)^2 - 4(2)(b).
Simplifying this expression gives 25 - 8b.
Setting this equal to zero and solving for b gives b = 3.

A sum of money is to be distributed among A, B, C, D in the proportion of 5 : 2 : 4 : 3. If C gets Rs. 1000 more than D, what is B's share?
A.
1500
B.
Rs. 500
C.
2000
D.
None of these
Correct Answer C. 2000
Explanation The sum of money is distributed among A, B, C, and D in the ratio of 5:2:4:3. Let's assume the common ratio to be x. Therefore, A's share is 5x, B's share is 2x, C's share is 4x, and D's share is 3x. It is given that C gets Rs. 1000 more than D. So, 4x = 3x + 1000. Solving this equation, we get x = 1000. Therefore, B's share is 2x = 2 * 1000 = Rs. 2000.

From a point P on a level ground, the angle of elevation of the top tower is 30º. If the tower is 100 m high, the distance of point P from the foot of the tower is:
A.
149 m
B.
156 m
C.
173 m
D.
200 m
Correct Answer C. 173 m
Explanation Given that the angle of elevation of the top of the tower from point P is 30º and the height of the tower is 100 m, we can use trigonometry to find the distance of point P from the foot of the tower. The tangent of an angle is equal to the opposite side divided by the adjacent side. In this case, the opposite side is the height of the tower (100 m) and the adjacent side is the distance of point P from the foot of the tower (x m). Therefore, tan(30º) = 100/x. By solving for x, we find that x = 100/tan(30º) = 173 m. Therefore, the distance of point P from the foot of the tower is 173 m.

Two tailors X and Y are paid a total of Rs. 550 per week by their employer. If X is paid 120 percent of the sum paid to Y, how much is Y paid per week?
A.
Rs. 200
B.
Rs. 250
C.
Rs. 300
D.
None of these
Correct Answer B. Rs. 250
Explanation Let's assume that Y is paid Rs. X per week. According to the given information, X is paid 120% of Y. So, X = 1.2Y. The total amount paid to both X and Y is Rs. 550. Therefore, X + Y = 550. Substituting the value of X from the first equation into the second equation, we get 1.2Y + Y = 550. Simplifying this equation, we find that 2.2Y = 550, which means Y = 550/2.2 = 250. Hence, Y is paid Rs. 250 per week.

The H.C.F. of two numbers is 23 and the other two factors of their L.C.M. are 13 and 14. The larger of the two numbers is:
A.
299
B.
276
C.
322
D.
345
Correct Answer C. 322
Explanation The H.C.F. (Highest Common Factor) of two numbers is the largest number that divides both numbers evenly. In this case, the H.C.F. is 23. The L.C.M. (Least Common Multiple) of two numbers is the smallest number that is a multiple of both numbers. The L.C.M. has two additional factors, 13 and 14. To find the larger of the two numbers, we can divide the L.C.M. by the H.C.F. and multiply it by the smaller number. Therefore, 23 multiplied by the smaller number gives us 322, which is the larger number.

35.55 km/hr
B.
36 km/hr
C.
71.11 km/hr
D.
71 km/hr
Correct Answer C. 71.11 km/hr
Explanation The average speed for the first 320 km of the tour can be calculated by finding the total time taken to cover the distance and then dividing it by the total distance. The time taken to cover the first 160 km at 64 km/hr is 160/64 = 2.5 hours. The time taken to cover the next 160 km at 80 km/hr is 160/80 = 2 hours. Therefore, the total time taken to cover the first 320 km is 2.5 + 2 = 4.5 hours. The average speed is then calculated as 320/4.5 = 71.11 km/hr.

A can do a piece of work in 4 hours; B and C together can do it in 3 hours, while A and C together can do it in 2 hours. How long will B alone take to do it?
A.
8 hours
B.
10 hours
C.
12 hours
D.
24 hours
Correct Answer C. 12 hours
Explanation Based on the given information, we can determine that A's work rate is faster than B's because A can complete the work in 4 hours while B alone takes longer. Additionally, A and C together can complete the work faster than B and C together, suggesting that A's work rate is also faster than C's. Therefore, B's work rate is the slowest among the three. Since A and C together can complete the work in 2 hours, and A alone takes 4 hours, we can deduce that C alone takes 2 hours to complete the work. Thus, B's work rate is equal to C's work rate, so B alone will take 12 hours to complete the work.

A starts business with Rs. 3500 and after 5 months, B joins with A as his partner. After a year, the profit is divided in the ratio 2 : 3. What is B's contribution in the capital?
A.
Rs. 7500
B.
Rs. 8000
C.
Rs. 8500
D.
Rs. 9000
Correct Answer D. Rs. 9000
Explanation Since A starts the business with Rs. 3500 and B joins after 5 months, B's contribution is not mentioned in the question. However, we know that the profit is divided in the ratio 2:3. This means that B's contribution must be 3 parts out of the total of 2+3=5 parts. To find B's contribution in terms of capital, we need to multiply his share (3 parts) by the total capital invested (3500*12) and divide it by the total share (5 parts). Therefore, B's contribution in the capital is (3/5)*(3500*12) = Rs. 9000.

A tank is filled in 5 hours by three pipes A, B and C. The pipe C is twice as fast as B and B is twice as fast as A. How much time will pipe A alone take to fill the tank?
A.
20 hours
B.
25 hours
C.
35 hours
D.
Cannot be determined
Correct Answer C. 35 hours
Explanation Pipe A is the slowest among the three pipes. Since pipe B is twice as fast as A, it can fill the tank in half the time it takes for A. Similarly, pipe C, being twice as fast as B, can fill the tank in half the time it takes for B. Therefore, if pipe A takes x hours to fill the tank, pipe B will take x/2 hours, and pipe C will take (x/2)/2 = x/4 hours. Given that all three pipes working together can fill the tank in 5 hours, their combined rate is 1/5 of the tank per hour. Using this information, we can set up the equation (1/x) + (2/x) + (4/x) = 1/5 and solve for x. The solution is x = 35 hours, which means pipe A alone will take 35 hours to fill the tank.

The length of a rectangle is halved, while its breadth is tripled. What is the percentage change in area?
A.
25% increase
B.
50% increase
C.
50% decrease
D.
75% decrease
Correct Answer B. 50% increase
Explanation When the length of a rectangle is halved and the breadth is tripled, the new length becomes 1/2 of the original length and the new breadth becomes 3 times the original breadth. The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying the length and breadth. Therefore, the new area can be calculated as (1/2) * (3 times the original breadth) = (3/2) * the original area. To find the percentage change in area, we can calculate the difference between the new area and the original area, which is (3/2) * the original area - the original area = (1/2) * the original area. This is equal to a 50% increase in the area.

A man walks 5 km toward south and then turns to the right. After walking 3 km he turns to the left and walks 5 km. Now in which direction is he from the starting place?
A.
West
B.
South
C.
North-East
D.
South-West
Correct Answer D. South-West
Explanation The man initially walks 5 km towards the south. Then, he turns to the right and walks 3 km. After that, he turns to the left and walks 5 km. This means that he is moving in a rectangular path, with the first leg being towards the south, the second leg towards the east, the third leg towards the north, and the final leg towards the west. Therefore, the man is now in the south-west direction from the starting place.

Which one will replace the question mark ?
A.
41
B.
64
C.
35
D.
61
Correct Answer B. 64
Explanation The numbers in the sequence are formed by taking the square of the first digit and concatenating it with the second digit. For example, 41 is formed by taking the square of 4 (which is 16) and concatenating it with 1. Similarly, 35 is formed by taking the square of 3 (which is 9) and concatenating it with 5. Therefore, the number that will replace the question mark is 64, which is formed by taking the square of 6 (which is 36) and concatenating it with 4.
