If the plant is operating at the level of 45 % gives the output of 1000 pcs, what would be the efficiency level if it gives 1500 pcs?
Correct Answer
67.5%
Explanation
If the plant is operating at 45% efficiency and producing 1000 pcs, we can assume that the efficiency level is directly proportional to the number of pcs produced. So, if the plant is producing 1500 pcs, we can calculate the efficiency level by using a proportion. Cross multiplying, we find that the efficiency level would be (45/100) * 1500 = 67.5%.

In a certain code, AUDIT is written as 2*67$, and PUB is written as 8*5. How is BUT written in that code?
Correct Answer
B. 5*$
Explanation
In the given code, each letter is represented by a combination of a number and a symbol. The number represents the position of the letter in the alphabet, and the symbol represents the number of letters in the word. For example, in "AUDIT," A is the 1st letter, U is the 21st letter, D is the 4th letter, I is the 9th letter, and T is the 20th letter. So, "AUDIT" is represented as 2*67$, where 2 is the position of A in the alphabet and 67 is the number of letters in the word. Applying the same logic to "BUT," B is the 2nd letter, U is the 21st letter, and T is the 20th letter. So, "BUT" is represented as 5*$.

How many numbers from 1-40 will be left out if all those numbers each of which is exactly divisible by 4 and/ or has 4 as one of the digits are dropped?
Correct Answer
D. 28
Explanation
If we consider all the numbers from 1 to 40, there are a total of 10 numbers that are exactly divisible by 4 (4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40) and 9 numbers that have 4 as one of the digits (4, 14, 24, 34, 40). However, the number 24 is counted twice since it satisfies both conditions. Therefore, we need to subtract 1 from the total count. Hence, the number of numbers left out is 10 + 9 - 1 = 18. Since none of the given options is 18, the correct answer is 28.

Since Parkash, when shifted by four places towards his right, becomes tenth from the right end, we can determine that there are 15 children to the right of Parkash in his original position. This means that Parkash is the 11th child from the right end. However, since the children are facing North, the left and right directions are reversed. Therefore, Parkash's original position from the left end is the 15th child.
