age be in another fourteen years time with respect to Preeti’s age then ?
1) 1
2) 3

4) 1.5
5) None of these

Solutions –  Preeti’s present age = x years

Nisha’s present age = 3x years
After seven years,
3x + 7 = 2 (x + 7)
3x + 7 = 2x + 14
x = 7
Preeti’s present age = 7 years
Nisha’s present age = 21 years
After another 14 years i.e. after 21 years
Preeti’s age = 28 years
Nisha’s age = 42 years
Required answer = 42/28 = 1.5
4. Nirmalya got 102

marks did Nirmalya get?
1) 89
2) 82
3) 77
4) 71
5) None of these

Solutions – Total marks obtained by Nirmalya = 102 + 118 + 104 + 114 +
96 = 534

Total maximum marks = 120 × 5 = 600

Required percentage 534/600 x 100 = 89

5. 6 women alone can
complete a piece of work in 10 days, whereas 10 children alone take 15 days to

complete the same piece of work. How
many days will 6 women and 10 children together take to
complete the piece of work ?
1) 7
2) 8
3) 6
4) 4
5) None of these

Solutions – In 1 day (6 × 10) women can complete the piece of work and
in 1 day (10 × 15) childrenmncan complete the same piece of work.

So, 6 × 10 women ≡ 10 × 15 children
= 2 women ≡ 5 children
So, 6 women + 10 children = (15 + 10) children = 25 children
So, M1D1 = M2D2
So, 10 × 15 = 25 × D2
D2 = 10×15/25 = 6 days

1) 62 2) 57 3) 55 4) 74 5) None of these

Solutions –  The pattern of the number series is as given below:

3 + 5 = 8
8 + 5 = 13
13 + 8 = 21
21 + 13 = 34
34 + 21 = 55
8. 1 2 6 21 ? 445
2676
1) 88 2) 77 3) 52 4) 64 5) None of these

Solutions – The pattern of the number series is as given below:

88 × 5 + 5 = 445
9. 27 125 ? 729 1331
2197 3375
1) 612 2) 347 3) 216 4) 343 5) None of these

Solutions –  The pattern of the number series is as given below:

33 = 27 ; 53 = 125
73 = 343 ; 93 = 729
113 = 1331, 133 = 21973
153 = 3375
10. 10400 2600 650 ?
40.625 10.15625 2.5390625
1) 175.5 2) 162.5 3) 154.75 4) 156.25 5) None of these

Solutions – The pattern of the number series is as given below:

10400 ÷ 4 = 2600
2600 ÷ 4 = 650
650 ÷ 4 = 162.5
162.5 ÷ 4 = 40.625
