Answer & Solutions

Option: 1

Explanation: L, C M of 2 , 3 and 4 is 12
½ : 2/3 : ¾ = 12/2 : 12 * 2/3 : 12 * ¾ = 6 : 8 : 9
1st part is 6/ ( 6+ 8 +9) * 782 = 6 * 34 = 204

 

3. A sum of money is to be distributed among Rahul , Virat , Sachin and Dhoni in the proportion of 5: 2 : 4: 3. If Sachin gets Rs. 1000 more than Dhoni , what is Virat’s share?

3x – 2x = 6 Then x = 6
Soumi = 2* 6= 12 & Sneha = 3 * 6= 18
Soumi’s age after 6 yrs : Sneha’s age after 6 yrs = 12 +6 : 18 + 6 = 18 : 24 = 3 : 4

 

5. Sharma Ji divides his property, so that his son’s share to his wife’s share and wife’s share to his daughter’s share both are in the ratio 3 : 1. If the daughter gets Rs. 10000 less than son, then the value ( in rupee) of the whole property is?

Sharma’s wife : Sharma’s daughter = 3 : 1
Sharma’s son : Wife : Daughter = 9 : 3 : 1
Son – daughter = 10000
9x – x =10000 ; 8x= 10000 ; x = 1250
Total = 9 + 3 + 1= 13
1250 * 13= 16250

 

6. The ratio of the ages of Ranveer and Ranbir 10 yrs ago was 1 : 3. The ratio of their ages 5 yr hence will be 2 : 3. Then, the ratio of their present age is?

2) 3 : 5
3) 4 : 5
4) 1 : 5
5) none of these

Answer & Solutions

Option: 2

Explanation: Ranveer : Ranbir = 1 : 3 ( 10 yrs ago )
X + 15 : 3x +15 = 2 : 3 ( 5 yrs hence )
By solving the equation, x= 5
Ranveer = 5 & ranbir 3*5 = 15
Present age of Ranveer= 5 +10 = 15 & Present age of Ranbir = 15 +10 = 25
15:25= 3 : 5

 

7. If 378 coins consist of 1 rupees , 50 paise and 25 paise whose values are in the ratio of 13 : 11 : 7, the number of 50 paise coins will be?

3) 458 : 223
4) 223 : 458
5) none of these

Answer & Solutions

Option: 2

Explanation: In first vessel the amount of water is 2 * ¼ = ½ the amount of milk is 2* ¾ = 3/2
In second vessel the amount of water is 3 * 2/5 = 6/5 the amount of milk is 3 * 3/5 = 9 /5
In third vessel the amount of water is 5 * 2/7 = 10 /7 the amount nof milk is 5 * 5/7 = 25 /7
Water in total= ½ +6/5 + 10/7
Milk in total = 3/2 + 9/5 +25/7
The ratio of milk and water is= 3/2 + 9/5 + 25/7 : ½ + 6/5 + 10/7
= 481 : 219
