Solutions:
1. C); The series is + 1^3, + 2^3, 3^3, + 4^3……………..
Hence 28 is wrong, it should be 30.
2. E); The series is ×1^2 + 1, ×2^2 + 2, ×3^2 + 3, ………
Hence 8510 is wrong. It should be 8505
3. A); The series is ×0.5, ×1, ×1.5, ×2
4. D); Here 1st + 2nd = 3rd no, 2nd + 3rd = 4th no ; ……
5. B); The series is ×1/2, ×2/3, ×3/4, ×4/5, ………
6. E) Combining both the statements together,
Speed of the train = 132/11 × 18/5 = 43.2 kmph
7. C) I. Weight of B = (100 × 7)/20 = 35kg
II. Weight of B = (15 × 7)/3 = 35kg
8. C) I. Amount of profit = 20% of 1200 = 240
II. Sp-Cp=240= Amount of profit
9. D) Cost of fencing per square metre is not given. So,
Even combining both the statement together, total cost of fencing can’t be determined.
10. B) From statement II alone:
Let the sum be P
[P (1 + 10/100)^4 – P] – (P×10×4)/100 = 641
=> P = 1000
11. B) Number of Females in Company W = 3360 *(5/14) = 1200
Number of Post graduate employees in Company W = 3360 *(80/100) = 2688
Number of female post graduate employees in Company W = 2688 – 1488 = 1200
Required Percentage = (1200 * 100)/1200 = 100%
12. E) Company P : ([7/12 * (2568)] / 2568)*100 = 58.33%
Company Q : ([5/16 * (2880)] / 2880)*100 = 31.25%
Company R : ([11/21 * (2310)] / 2310)*100 = 52.38%
Company S : ([2/5 * (3575)] / 3575)*100 = 40%
Company T : ([6/13 * (2054)] / 2054)*100 = 46.15%
Company U : ([21/41 * (2788)] / 2788)*100 = 51.21%
Company V : ([7/15 * (3720)] / 3720)*100 = 46.66%
Company W : ([5/14 * (3360)] / 3360)*100 = 35.71%
13. D) Required ratio = = [2880 * (11/16)/ 2310 * (11/21) + 3360 * (9/14)/ 3575 * (2/5)] = (1980 + 2160)/(1210 + 1430) = 414/264 = 69:44
14. C) Average number of post graduate employees in companies P, Q and S = (1926 + 1872 + 2145)/3 = 5943/3 = 1981
Average number of post graduate employees in companies U, V and W = (2091 + 2046 + 2688)/3 = 6875/3 = 2275
Difference = 2275 + 1981 = 4256
15. D) Company P – 2568/16 = 160.5 ; Company Q – 2880/18 = 160
Company R – 2310/14 = 165 ; Company S – 3575/22 = 162.5
Company T – 2054/13 = 158 ; Company U – 2788/17 = 164
Company V – 3720/24 = 155 ; Company W – 3360/21 = 160
16. C) Profit after giving discount = 20 – 10 – 200/100 = 8%
Therefore overall profit = (108 × 1)/0.9 – 100 = 18/0.9 = 20%
17. D) 38/300 × 100 = 38/3%
Protein received by Rabbit daily
=> x : y = 7 : 8
Therefore Quantity of food x = 300 × 7/15 = 140gm
18. C) Area of ground = 1000/0.25 = 4000 m^2
Breadth = 50m
Length = 4000/50 = 80 m
New Length = 80 + 20 = 100m
New Area = 100 × 50 = 5000 m^2
So, expenditure = 5000 × 0.25 = Rs.1250
19. A) P = 4/5 and P| = 1/5; Q = 3/4 and Q| = 1/4; R = 2/3 and R| = 1/3
Required probability = PQR| + PQ|R + P|QR + PQR
= 4/5 × 3/4 × 1/3 + 4/5 × 1/4 × 2/3 + 1/5 × ¾ × 2/3 + 4/5 + 3/4 + 2/3 = 1/5 + 2/15 + 1/0 + 2/5 = 5/6
20. B) ATQ, CP × 125/100 × 120/100 = 30
=> CP = (30 × 4 × 5)/(5 × 6) = 20
Therefore original CP of the book = Rs.20
