Question 6 of 40
6. Question
A blind school has 3433 visually handicapped students. 80 to 85 percent of the students are good musicians and 30 to 40 percent of the students are good actors. Each student has excellence in at least one of the skills of music and acting. What is the absolute difference between the minimum and maximum possible numbers of students who are both great musicians and actors?
Correct
Solution:
Total Students = 2001
% of students who are musicians = 80% to 85% of 3433 = 2746 to 2918
So, % of students who are good in acting alone =100%85% to 100%80% = 15% to 20% = 515 to 687
% of students who are good actors = 30% to 45% = 1030 to 1545
So, minimum = 1030687=201
and maximum = 1545515=499
and 499201=298Incorrect
Solution:
Total Students = 2001
% of students who are musicians = 80% to 85% of 3433 = 2746 to 2918
So, % of students who are good in acting alone =100%85% to 100%80% = 15% to 20% = 515 to 687
% of students who are good actors = 30% to 45% = 1030 to 1545
So, minimum = 1030687=201
and maximum = 1545515=499

Question 7 of 40
7. Question
20 college students are waiting in a queue for discount coupons of KFC. Each coupon costs ₹5. Ten of the students have the ₹5 coin and others have currency notes of ₹10. Determine in how many ways can all the 20 students stand in the queue such that the person at the coupon counter will not face any issue in paying back changes provided that the person at the counter does not have any changes.
Correct
Solution:
For the coupon seller to have change always, the person with ₹5 should come before the person with ₹ 10
We can also say that first person must have ₹5 and 20th person must have ₹10
→ let us take this case 5_ _ _(10 places), 10 _ _ _ (10 places), no of cases – 1Take the first 10 numbers as one part and next 10 as second part
now take one 10 into the first part, this can be done in ^{9}C_{1 }ways because 1st number should be 5 always
and the 5 which is replaced by 10 can be arranged in ^{9}C_{1} ways in 2nd partone 10 is replaced, no of cases: ^{9}C_{1}x^{9}C_{1} = 81
now replace two 10’s , 5 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ; ……..10 —– ^{8}C^{2} ways
5 10 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ; …… 10 —– ^{7}C_{1} ways
same will be the cases for two 5’s to be arranged in the second part
two 10’s are replaced, no of cases – (^{8}C_{2} + ^{7}C_{1})x(^{8}C_{2} + ^{7}C_{1}) = 1225
replace three 10’s, 5 5 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ _; ……… 10 —— ^{7}C_{3} ways
5 10 5 5 _ _ _ _ _ _ ; ……… 10 ——– ^{6}C_{2} ways
5 10 5 10 5 _ _ _ _ _ ; …….. 10 —— ^{5}C_{1 }ways
three 10’s are replaced, no of cases – (^{7}C_{3} + ^{6}C_{2} + ^{5}C_{1})x(^{7}C_{3 }+ ^{6}C_{2} + ^{5}C_{1}) = 3025
four 10’s replaced , no of cases : (^{6}C_{4} + ^{5}C_{3} + ^{4}C_{2} + ^{3}C_{1})^{ 2} = 1156five 10’s replaced , no of cases : (^{5}C_{5 }+ ^{4}C_{4} + ^{3}C_{3} + ^{2}C_{2} + ^{1}C_{1}) ^{2} = 25
max only five 10’s can come into first part
so total number of cases = 1+81+1225+3025+1156+25= 5513Incorrect

max only five 10’s can come into first part
so total number of cases = 1+81+1225+3025+1156+25= 5513 
Question 8 of 40
8. Question
Arshi is a shopaholic. She went to a bag shop to buy a handmade wallet. She took ₹ 15 to the shop in the form of one rupee notes and 20 paise coins. After returning from the shop after buying the wallet, she was left with as many one rupee notes as she originally had 20 paise coins and as many 20 paise coins as she had originally one rupee notes. The total amount also reduced by twothird. What was the cost of the wallet?
Correct
Solution:
Let number of one rupee notes=X
Number of 20 paise coins=Y
Arshi started with (100X+20Y) and came back with (100Y and 20A) paise
Also, 100Y+20X=(1/3) (100X+20Y)
=>X=7Y
By hit and trial method,
Put Y=1=>X=7=>total ₹ 7.2 is less
Put Y=2=>X=14=>Total=₹ 14.4
This is correct.
Hence she spent=(2/3)x14.4=₹ 9.60=cost of wallet
Incorrect
Solution:
Let number of one rupee notes=X
Number of 20 paise coins=Y
Arshi started with (100X+20Y) and came back with (100Y and 20A) paise
Also, 100Y+20X=(1/3) (100X+20Y)
=>X=7Y
By hit and trial method,
Put Y=1=>X=7=>total ₹ 7.2 is less
Put Y=2=>X=14=>Total=₹ 14.4
This is correct.
Hence she spent=(2/3)x14.4=₹ 9.60=cost of wallet

Question 9 of 40
9. Question
In an island of the Maldives, the natives have a peculiar process of determining their average earnings and expenditures. According to an old tradition, the average monthly earnings had to be calculated on the basis of 14 months in the calendar year, while the average monthly expenditure was to be calculated on the basis of 9 months in the year. This weird system of calculation always resulted in the natives underestimating their savings because there occurs an underestimation of their earning. The expenditure per month gets overestimated. Now keeping the above points in view try to answer the below questions:
Mr. Ghosh comes to his native island from Africa and makes his native community comprising of 173 families to calculate their average earning and the average expenditure on the basis of 12 months per the calendar year. The average estimated earning in his community according to the old system is 77 fasios per month. Assuming there are no other changes, what will be the percentage change in savings of the 173 families?
Correct
Solution:
Average Monthly earning (old system) = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families/14 = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families = 77×14
Now,Average Monthly earning of 173 families (new system) =
Total Income/12 = 77×14/12 = 89.83 fasios
But, we do not know the average monthly expenditure in either system.
Nor do we know the savings.
So, the required answer cannot be determined.Incorrect

10. Question
In an island of the Maldives, the natives have a peculiar process of determining their average earnings and expenditures. According to an old tradition, the average monthly earnings had to be calculated on the basis of 14 months in the calendar year, while the average monthly expenditure was to be calculated on the basis of 9 months in the year. This weird system of calculation always resulted in the natives underestimating their savings because there occurs an underestimation of their earning. The expenditure per month gets overestimated. Now keeping the above points in view try to answer the below questions:
In the previous question, the average estimated monthly expenditure is 21 fasios per month for the island. Determine the percentage change in the estimated savings of the 173 families.
Correct
Solution:
Average Monthly Income (old system) = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families/14 = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families = 77×14
Now, Average Monthly Income of 173 families (new system) =Total Income/12 = 77×14/12 = 89.83 fasios
Now, Average Monthly expenditure (old system) = 21
So Average Monthly Expenditure (new system) = 21×9/12 = 15.75Total Savings (old system) = 7721=56
Total Savings (new system) = 89.8315.75 = 74.08
%change = (74.0856)/56 x100 = 32.3%Incorrect
Solution:
Average Monthly Income (old system) = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families/14 = 77
So, Total Income of 173 families = 77×14
Now, Average Monthly Income of 173 families (new system) =Total Income/12 = 77×14/12 = 89.83 fasios
Now, Average Monthly expenditure (old system) = 21
So Average Monthly Expenditure (new system) = 21×9/12 = 15.75Total Savings (old system) = 7721=56
Total Savings (new system) = 89.8315.75 = 74.08

Question 11 of 40
11. Question
Siddharth spends 30% of his income on his father’s medication, 20% on agricultural property and 10% on daughter’s education. The corresponding percentages for Akarsh are 40%. 25% and 13%. Given below are two conditions in 2 statements.
A.Siddharth spends more on agriculture than Akarsh.
B. Akarsh spends more on daughter’s education than Siddharth.We can determine who spends more on Father’s medication with the help of which of the above statements?
Correct
Solution:
Let Siddharth’s and Akarsh’s total income be 100x and 100y respectively.
So the amount spent by Siddharth on father, agriculture and daughter will be 30x, 20x and 10x respectively.
The corresponding amounts spent by Akarsh will be 40y, 25y and 13y.
We need to find relation between 30x and 40y i.e. we need the ratio 3x/4y
Now let us consider statement A alone:
We get 20x>25y
So 4x>5y i.e. x>1.25y
If we take x=1.3y, then 3x/4y=3.9x/4y<1
But if x=2y, then 3x/4y=6y/4y>1
So statement A alone is not sufficient.Consider statement B alone.
It says 13y>10x
So x<1.3y
For x=1.29y, 3x/4y = 3×1.29y/4y<1
Thus even for the highest value of x, we get 3x<4y.
For any value of x lesser than 1.29, 3x is surely going to be less than 4y.
So statement B is sufficient.Incorrect
Solution:
Let Siddharth’s and Akarsh’s total income be 100x and 100y respectively.
So the amount spent by Siddharth on father, agriculture and daughter will be 30x, 20x and 10x respectively.
The corresponding amounts spent by Akarsh will be 40y, 25y and 13y.
We need to find relation between 30x and 40y i.e. we need the ratio 3x/4y
Now let us consider statement A alone:

If we take x=1.3y, then 3x/4y=3.9x/4y<1
But if x=2y, then 3x/4y=6y/4y>1
So statement A alone is not sufficient.Consider statement B alone.
It says 13y>10x
So x<1.3y
For x=1.29y, 3x/4y = 3×1.29y/4y<1
Thus even for the highest value of x, we get 3x<4y.
For any value of x lesser than 1.29, 3x is surely going to be less than 4y.
So statement B is sufficient. 
Question 12 of 40
12. Question
A pump can fill or empty an oil reservoir. The capacity of the oil reservoir is 3600m^{3}. The filling capacity of the pump connected to the reservoir is 10m^{3}/min less than its emptying capacity.If the pump takes 12 minutes extra to fill the reservoir than to empty it, determine the emptying capacity of the pump?
Correct
Solution:
Let x m^{3}/min be the filling capacity of the pump.
Therefore the emptying capacity=(x+10) m^{3}/min
The time taken to fill the reservoir=3600/x
Time taken to empty the reservoir=3600(x+10)
It takes 12 more minutes to fill the reservoir than to empty it
{3600/x } – {3600/(x+10) } =12
=>3600x+360003600x=12(x^{2}+10x)
=>36000=12(x^{2}+10x)
=>3000= x^{2}+10x
=> x^{2}+10x3000=0
=>x=60 or 50
Taking positive value of x=50
Emptying capacity =50+10=60 m^{3}/min
Incorrect
Solution:
Let x m^{3}/min be the filling capacity of the pump.
Therefore the emptying capacity=(x+10) m^{3}/min
The time taken to fill the reservoir=3600/x
Time taken to empty the reservoir=3600(x+10)
It takes 12 more minutes to fill the reservoir than to empty it
{3600/x } – {3600/(x+10) } =12
=>3600x+360003600x=12(x^{2}+10x)
=>36000=12(x^{2}+10x)
=>3000= x^{2}+10x
=> x^{2}+10x3000=0
=>x=60 or 50
Taking positive value of x=50
Emptying capacity =50+10=60 m^{3}/min

Question 13 of 40
13. Question
Ronnie starts driving from the market to the Star’s lab in his car. Meanwhile, Dr. Stein also drives from the market one hour after Ronnie and overtakes Ronnie after covering 30% of the distance from market to the lab. Both of them continue the drive even after the overtaking. On reaching Star’s lab, Dr. Stein reverses his car and meets Ronnie’s car, after covering 23 1/3 of the distance between Star’s lab and the market. In how much time did Dr. Stein cover the distance between market to the lab? ( in hours)
Correct
Solution:
Let the distance from market to Star’s lab be x
When Dr. Stein overtakes Ronnie for the first time, both of them cover= 3x/10
When Dr. Stein meets Ronnie after that, Dr. Stein covers (7x/10)+(7x/30) =28x/30
And Ronnie covers= (23x/30)(9x/30)=14x/30
Therefore, Dr. Stein is twice as fast as Ronnie.
Dr.Stein starts one hour after Ronnie and catches up in 1 hour.
Thus, Dr. Stein covers 0.3x (30 % of x) in one hour or x in 10/3 hr or 3 1/3 h.
Incorrect
Solution:
Let the distance from market to Star’s lab be x
When Dr. Stein overtakes Ronnie for the first time, both of them cover= 3x/10
When Dr. Stein meets Ronnie after that, Dr. Stein covers (7x/10)+(7x/30) =28x/30
And Ronnie covers= (23x/30)(9x/30)=14x/30
Therefore, Dr. Stein is twice as fast as Ronnie.
Dr.Stein starts one hour after Ronnie and catches up in 1 hour.
Thus, Dr. Stein covers 0.3x (30 % of x) in one hour or x in 10/3 hr or 3 1/3 h.

Tanmay spent less than ₹ 17500 to buy one quintal each of pomegranate, orange and guava. Which one of the following statements is sufficient ot determine which one of the three fruits bought was the costliest ?
A. 2 kg pomegranate and 1 kg guava cost less than 1 kg pomegranate and 2 kg guava.
B. 1 kg pomegranate and 2 kg orange together cost the same as 1 kg orange and 2 kg guava.
Correct
Solution: From A alone, 2P+G<1+2G=>P<G
We got no idea about olive, so it is not sufficient.
From B alone, P+2P=O+2G => P+N=2G
This also is not alone.
Using both, As P<G and P+O=2G=> G<O
Hence both are required.

Question 15 of 40
15. Question
Nitu got an order for 480 khaddar blouses. She bought 12 charkhas and appointed some spinners to do it. However, many did not come on the working day. As a result, each of those who did come had to spin 32 more blouses than originally assigned with equal distribution of work. How many spinners had been appointed earlier and how many did not come?
Correct
Solution:
Solving by options,
Option a>
12 charkhas need to make 480 blouses.
Each charkha=40 blouses.
Due to the absence of few spinners, now each spinner had to make 40+32=72 blouses.
According to option, 12 are total spinners and 4 were absent hence 8 were spinning.
8 spinners made=8×72 >480 hence the option does not hold true.
Option c>
10 spinners did 480
One spinner did 48.
Remaining 6 spinners need to spin 48+32=130 blouse each
Tota 6 spinners will spin= 130x 6= 480 which satisfies the question
Hence answer is option C

Each of the two mobile phones i.e., iPhone and OPPO were sold at same price . A profit of 10% was made on iPhone while a loss of 30% incurred on OPPO. Find the total gain or loss?
Correct
Solution:
As SP is same so SP1=SP2
So, total SP=2x assuming SP to be x
CP of iPhone=(100/110) of x (10% profit)
CP of oppo= (100/70) of x ( 30% loss)
Total CP= [(100/110) of x]+[(100/70)of x]=(180/77) 0f x
Profit/loss%=SPCP/CP*100=[2x(180x/77)/(180x/77)]*100= (13/90)*100
Since negative sign. So its loss which is approximately 14%

Question 33 of 40
33. Question
If a sum of money grows to 144/121 times when invested for two years in a scheme where interest is compounded annually, how long will the same sum of money take to treble if invested at the same rate of interest in a scheme where interest is computed using simple interest method?
Correct
Solution:
The sum of money grows to 144/121 times in 2 years.
If P is the principal invested, then it has grown to 144/121 P in two years when invested in compound interest.
In compound interest, if a sum is invested for two years, the amount is found using the following formula
A=(1+R/100)² P in this case.
=>(1+R/100)²=144/121 =>(1+R/100)²=(12/11)²=>R=100/11
If r =100/11% , then in simple interest the time it will take for a sum of money to treble is found out as follows:
Let P be the principal invested. Therefore, if the principal trebles = 3P, the remaining 2P has come on account of simple interest.
Simple Interest =PNR/100 , where P is the simple interest, R is the rate of interest and ‘N’ is the number of years the principal was invested.
Therefore, 2P =PN×100/11×100 => 2 =N/11 or N = 22 yearsIncorrect
Solution:
The sum of money grows to 144/121 times in 2 years.
If P is the principal invested, then it has grown to 144/121 P in two years when invested in compound interest.
In compound interest, if a sum is invested for two years, the amount is found using the following formula
A=(1+R/100)² P in this case.
=>(1+R/100)²=144/121 =>(1+R/100)²=(12/11)²=>R=100/11
If r =100/11% , then in simple interest the time it will take for a sum of money to treble is found out as follows:
Let P be the principal invested. Therefore, if the principal trebles = 3P, the remaining 2P has come on account of simple interest.
Simple Interest =PNR/100 , where P is the simple interest, R is the rate of interest and ‘N’ is the number of years the principal was invested.
Therefore, 2P =PN×100/11×100 => 2 =N/11 or N = 22 years 
Question 34 of 40
34. Question
Two friends A and B leave City P and City Q simultaneously and travel towards Q and P at constant speeds. They meet at a point in between the two cities and then proceed to their respective destinations in 54 minutes and 24 minutes respectively. How long did B take to cover the entire journey between City Q and City P?
Correct
Solution:
Let us assume Car A travels at a speed of a and Car B travels at a speed of b. Further, let us assume that they meet after t minutes.
Distance traveled by car A before meeting car B = a * t. Likewise distance traveled by car B before meeting car A = b * t.
Distance traveled by car A after meeting car B = a * 54. Distance traveled by car B after meeting car A = 24 * b.
Distance traveled by car A after crossing car B = distance traveled by car B before crossing car A (and vice versa).
=> at = 54b ——— (1)
and bt = 24a ——– (2)
Multiplying equations 1 and 2
we have ab * t2 = 54 * 24 * ab
=> t2 = 54 * 24
=> t = 36
So, both cars would have traveled 36 minutes prior to crossing each other. Or, B would have taken 36 + 24 = 60 minutes to travel the whole distance.Incorrect
Solution:
Let us assume Car A travels at a speed of a and Car B travels at a speed of b. Further, let us assume that they meet after t minutes.
Distance traveled by car A before meeting car B = a * t. Likewise distance traveled by car B before meeting car A = b * t.
Distance traveled by car A after meeting car B = a * 54. Distance traveled by car B after meeting car A = 24 * b.
Distance traveled by car A after crossing car B = distance traveled by car B before crossing car A (and vice versa).
=> at = 54b ——— (1)
and bt = 24a ——– (2)
Multiplying equations 1 and 2
we have ab * t2 = 54 * 24 * ab

A milk vendor has 2 cans of milk. The first contains 25% water and the rest milk. The second contains 50% water. How much milk should he mix from each of the containers so as to get 12 litres of milk such that the ratio of water to milk is 3 : 5?
Correct
Solution:
Let x and (12x) litres of milk be mixed from the first and second container respectively
Amount of milk in x litres of the first container = .75x
Amount of water in x litres of the first container = .25x
Amount of milk in (12x) litres of the second container = .5(12x)
Amount of water in (12x) litres of the second container = .5(12x)
Ratio of water to milk = [.25x + .5(12x)] : [.75x + .5(12x)]=3:5 ⇒(.25x+6−.5x)/(.75x+6−.5x)=3/5
⇒(6−.25x)/(.25x+6)=3/5
⇒30−1.25x=.75x+18
⇒2x=12⇒x=6
Since x = 6, 12x = 126 = 6 Hence 6 and 6 litres of milk should mixed from the first and second container respectivelyIncorrect

In an icecream factory, 30% of total Vanillaflavored icecream produced is mixed with 40% of total Bananaflavored icecream produced, in a ratio of 1:1. Find the overall percentage of icecream produced (approximately) which is mixed with each other. (Icecreams of only these 2 flavors are produced in the factory)
Correct
Solution:
Let the total Vanillaflavored icecream produced and total Bananaflavored icecream produced be x and y respectively
Given,30% of x = 40% of y (Since ratio is 1:1)………….(1)
=> x/y=4/3
=> x/y+1=4/3+1(On adding 1 to both sides of the equation)
=> (x+y)/y=7/3
=> y/(x+y)=3/7
Total icecream mixed = 0.3x + 0.4y = 0.4y + 0.4y = 0.8y (from (1))
% of overall icecream mixed = 0.8y/(x+y)×100=0.8×3/7×100 = 34.28%~34%Incorrect

Question 39 of 40
39. Question
Two persons A and B start moving at each other from point P and Q respectively which are 1400 Km apart. Speed of A is 50 Km/hr and that of B is 20 Km/hr. How far is A from Q when he meets B for the 22nd time?
Correct
Solution:
Total distance travelled by both of them for 22nd meeting = 1400 + 21 x 2 x 1400 = 43 x 1400
Distance travelled by each will be in proportion of their speed:
Therefore, distance travelled by A = 50/(50 + 20) x 43 x 1400 = 43000
Now, for every odd multiple of 1400, A will be at Q and for every even multiple of 1400 A will be at P. So, at 42000 Km (1400 x 30, even multiple) A will beat P. So at their 22 meeting, A will be 1000 Km from P, therefore, 400 Km from Q.Incorrect

40. Question
In an examination the candidate was asked to attempt 50 questions where all the questions were mandatory.1 mark is given for each correct answer and 25% of the correct answer’s mark is deducted if answer is incorrect. Nisha appeared the exam and scored 27.5 marks. How many incorrect answers she gave?
Correct
Solution:
Let x be the no of correct answers so (50x) will be the number of wrong ans.
x(50x)/4=27.5
=>x=32..So no of incorrect answers=(5032)=18Incorrect
