1. Answer: C)
2. Answer: D)
Required ratio = (558 + 824) : (434 +
824) = 691 : 629
3. Answer: E)
Required sum = 995 + 199 = 1194.
4. Answer: A)
Required percentage =
(1680/10560)*100 = 16% .
5. Answer: B)
Required sum = 535 + 290 = 825
6. The product of the ages of Ankit and Nikita is 240. If twice the age
of Nikita is more than Ankit's age by 4 years, what is Nikita's age?
a) 14 years
b) 8 years
c) 10 years
d) 12 years
e) None of these
Answer: D)
Explanation:
Let Ankit's age be x years. Then,
Nikita's age = 240/xyears.
Therefore 2 × (240 /x) – x = 4 =>
480 – x² = 4x => x² + 4x – 480 = 0 => (x+24)(x20) = 0 => x = 20.
Hence, Nikita's age = (240/20) years
= 12 years.
7. A and B completed a work together in 5 days. Had A worked at twice the
speed and B at half the speed, it would have taken them four days to complete
the job. How much time would it take for A alone to do the work?
a) 10 days
b) 20 days
c) 25 days
d) 15 days
e) 24 days
Answer: A)
Explanation:
Assume work to be done 100%.
First case,
A + B = 100/5 =20% work done per day
 (1)
Second case,
2A + B/2 = 100/4 = 25% work done per
day  (2)
On solving equation (1) and (2), we
get
A = 10 days.
8. Two metro trains each 120m long are moving in opposite directions.
They cross each other in 8 seconds. If one is moving twice as fast the other,
the speed of the faster metro train is
a) 75 km/hr
b) 72km/hr
c) 45 km/hr
d) 60 km/hr
e) 50 km/hr
Answer: B)
Explanation:
D = 120 + 120 = 240 m., t = 8s.
Speed of slow train = s, faster = 2s
Total speed = 2s + s = 3s
So, 3s = 240/8 = 30 m/s.
V = 30/3 = 10 m/s.
2V = 20 m/s. or 72 km/hr
9. Ben purchased 125 stools at the rate of Rs. 120 per stool. The
transport expenditure was @ Rs. 10 for 5 stool. He paid an octroi @ Rs. 2 per
stool and coolie charges were Rs. 250. What should be the selling price of each
stool, if he wants profit of 10%?
a) Rs. 125
b) Rs. 145
c) Rs. 150
d) Rs. 140
e) None
Answer: E)
Explanation:
Total cost =
125*120+(125*10)/5+125*2+250
= 15000 + 250 + 250 + 250
= 15750
So cost of 1 stool = 15750/125 = 126
SP of 1 stool = 126*110/100 = 138.6
10. Adam borrowed some money at the rate of 6% p.a. for the first two
years, at the rate of 9% p.a. for the next three years, and at the rate of 14%
p.a. for the period beyond five years. If he pays a total interest of Rs 19,000
at the end of nine years, how much money did he borrow?
a) Rs 10,000
b) Rs 20,000
c) Rs 14,000
d) Rs 16,000
e) None of these
Answer: B)
Explanation:
Let the sum borrowed be x. Then,
(x × 6 × 2/100) + (x × 9 × 3/100) +
(x × 14 × 4/100) = 19000
=> (3x/25 + 27x/100 + 14x/25) =
19000 => 95x/100 = 19000 => x = 19000 × 100/25 = 20000
Hence sum borrowed = Rs.20000
Direction (11 – 5): What will come in place of question mark (?) in the
following number series ?

b) 1487.5745
c) 1476.5625
d) 1497.8745
e) None of these
Answer: C)
Explanation:
x0.5, x1.5, x2.5, x3.5, x4.5
328.125 × 4.5 = 1476.5625
12. 5 12.5 54.5 333.5 2676.5 ?
a) 26885.5
b) 28652.5
c) 24385.5
d) 26775.5
e) None of these
Answer: D)
Explanation:
x2 + 2.5, x4 + 4.5, x6 + 6.5, x8 +
8.5, x10 + 10.5
2676.5×10+10.5
=26765 + 10.5
= 26775.5

14. 5679 5560 5322 4965 4489 ?
a) 3684
b) 3894
c) 3482
d) 3486
e) None of these
Answer: B)
Explanation:
5679 – (119 * 1 = 119) = 5560
5560 – (119 * 2 = 238) = 5322
5322 – (119 * 3 = 357) = 4965
4965 – (119 * 4 = 476) = 4489
4489 – (119 * 5 = 595) = 3894
