Answers & Explanations:

**1. Ans-b**

Both Deepak and Deepika are reaching B from A and then

returning . When Deepika overtakes Deepak, the distances traveled by both of

them are equal. Therefore, the times taken by them are inversely proportional

to their speeds.

returning . When Deepika overtakes Deepak, the distances traveled by both of

them are equal. Therefore, the times taken by them are inversely proportional

to their speeds.

Let Deepak take t minutes for travel, Deepika overtakes him.

As Deepika started 45 minutes after Deepak he takes t-45 minutes.

As Deepika started 45 minutes after Deepak he takes t-45 minutes.

=> t/ (t-45) = speed Deepika / Speed Deepak =2

=>t=90 minutes

Therefore Deepika overtakes Deepak at 9 a.m + 90 minutes =

10.30 a.m

10.30 a.m

**2. Ans-c**

If the price of strawberries decreases by 10 %, Caitlin

would save 10 % of her money i.e. Rs 50 to buy the same amount as before in Rs

50, she can buy 2 kg more, therefore the current price of 1 kg strawberries is

Rs. 25.

would save 10 % of her money i.e. Rs 50 to buy the same amount as before in Rs

50, she can buy 2 kg more, therefore the current price of 1 kg strawberries is

Rs. 25.

This price is after 10 % deduction. Hence, original price =

25/0.9= Rs 27.77

25/0.9= Rs 27.77

**3. Ans-c**

Anil, Ashok, Ankit can be arranged in 3!= 6 ways out of

which only one is favorable.

which only one is favorable.

Probability = 1/6

**4. Ans-b**

Solve through options

810/54 â€“ 900/75= 3= (6-3=3)

15-12=3

3=3

Hence 4 days option b

**5. Ans-c**

The total persons in each hall= 25x(7/5)=35

Total number of chairs= 352= 1225

Maximum available capacity= 1225X0.8=980 chairs

**6. Ans-b**

(P + Q)will fill in 1 hour = (1/12 + 1/15) = 3/20 part

(P + Q)will fill in 1 hour = (1/12 + 1/20) = 2/15 part

Part filled in 2 hrs = (3/20 + 2/15) = 17/60

Part filled in 6 hrs = 3 * 17/60 = 17/20

Remaining part = 1 – 17/20 = 3/20

Now, it is the turn of P and Q and 3/20 part is filled by P

and Q in 1 hour.

and Q in 1 hour.

Total time taken to fill the tank = (6 + 1) = 7 hrs.

**7. Ans-d**

In first case Rakesh travels 100 m and Ramesh travels 90 m

in the same time.

in the same time.

Therefore, the ratio of their speeds is 10:9

In the second case, Rakesh is travelling 110 m to reach the

finishing line. In the same

finishing line. In the same

time, the distances travelled by both of them will again be

in the same ratio as their old speeds.

in the same ratio as their old speeds.

Distance Ramesh/Distance Rakesh = Speed Ramesh / Speed

Rakesh

Rakesh

=>Distance Ramesh/110=9/10

=>Distance Ramesh= 99m

Therefore Ramesh has travelled only 99 m when Rakesh reached

the finish

the finish

line(100m).

Hence Rakesh beats Ramesh by 1 m.

**8. Ans- a**

Let the total work = 100 units.

Abramâ€™s one day work = 100/5= 20 units.

Abraham and Ashleyâ€™s 1 day work= Â¾ x 20 = 15 units

Mitch and Harrisonâ€™s 1 day work= 1/5 x 20= 4 units

In one day all of them can do = 20+15+15+4+4= 58 units of

work.

work.

Hence they complete the work in 100/58 days.

**9. Ans-b**

Let price of 1 g be 1 rupee

They sell 1000g as 1100g

They will sell 1100 g as 1100/1000 x 1100= 1210 g

Which means they get rs 1210

Their profit percentage= [(1210-1000)/1000]x100= 21 %

**10. Ans-a**

Let the total number of plantings be x

plantings by Aniket= 5/8x

plantings by Sanket= 3/8x

survived plants of Aniket=1/3 of

5/8 of x= 5x/24

5/8 of x= 5x/24

died plants of Sanket= Â½ of 3/8 of x= 3x/16

3x/16=27=> x=144

Plants survived by

Aniket= 5x/24=30

Aniket= 5x/24=30
