A.31 days            B.30 days           C.33 days             D.32 days
Answer: D

Given that 5 women is equal to 8 girls to complete a work so, 10 women=16 girls. Therefore 10women +5girls=16girls+5girls=21girls. 8 girls can do a work in 84 days then 21 girls= (8*84/21)=32days. Therefore 10 women and 5 girls can a   work in 32days

12). SECTION-1 If 9 men working 6 hours a day can do a work in 88 days. Then 6 men working 8 hours a day can do it in how many days?
A.89                    B.99                    C.86                    D.76
Answer: B

If men is fixed,work is proportional to time. If work is fixed, then time is inversely proportional to men therefore, (M1*T1/W1)=(M2*T2/W2) From the above formula i.e (m1*t1/w1)=(m2*t2/w2) so (9*6*88/1)=(6*8*d/1) on solving, d=99   days.

13). walking at ¾ of his usual speed ,a man is late by 2 ½ hr. the usual time is
A.7                        B.7 ½                C.8 ½                   D.8

Answer: B

 Usual speed = S Usual time = T Distance = D New Speed is ¾ S New time is 4/3 T 4/3 T – T = 5/2 T=15/2 = 7 ½

14). In a boat 25 persons were sitting. Their average weight increased one kilogram when One man goes and a new man comes in. The weight of the new man is 70kgs. Find the Weight of the man who is going ?
A.45                        B.25                  C.36                     D.73
Answer: A

Weight increased per person is 1 kg. Total increase in weight = 25 kgs Weight of new man is 70 kgs, (Which means his weight is 25 kgs heavier) The weight of the old man was 70 – 25 = 45 kgs

15). A man can row 4.5 km/hr in still water. It takes him twice as long to row upstream as to row downstream. What is the rate of the current ?
A.3.5 km/hr             B.2.5 km/hr.    C.4.5 km/hr.            D.1.5 km/hr
Answer: D

Speed of boat in still water (b) = 4.5 km/hr. Speed of boat with stream (Down Stream), D = b + u Speed of boat against stream (Up stream), U = b – u It is given upstream time is twice to that of down stream. ⇒ Downstream speed is twice   to that of upstream. So b + u = 2(b – u) ⇒ u =b/3 = 1.5 km/hr.

16). A sum of money amounts to Rs. 9800 after 5 years and Rs. 12005 after 8 years at the same rate of simple interest. The rate of interest per annum is
A.5%                      B.8%                 C.12%                      D.18%
Answer: C

 S.I. for 3 years = Rs. (12005 - 9800) = Rs. 2205. S.I. for 5 years = Rs. (2205/3) x 5 = Rs. 3675 Principal = Rs. (9800 - 3675) = Rs. 6125. Hence, rate = (100 x 3675)/( 6125 x 5) % = 12%

17). A man starts walking at 3 pm . he walks at a speed of 4 km/hr on level ground and at a speed of 3 km/hr on uphill , 6 km/hr downhill and then 4 km/hr on level ground to reach home at 9 pm. What is the distance covered on one way?

A.12 km                  B.23 km               C.45 km                   D.65 km
Answer: A

 lets us consider t1 = time taken on level road. t2 = uphill. t3 = down hill; the distance traveled uphill and down hill same so t2*3 = 6*t3; => t2 = 2t3;---> (1) total time = 2*t1 + t2 + t3 = 6 hours ---> (2) 2t1+3t3 = 6 -->(3) total distance   = 2*(4t1) + 3*t2+ 6*t3 ---> (4) substitute (1) in (4) 8t1 + 12t3 => 4(2t1+3t3) then from (3) the total distance will become 4*6= 24 => one way distance = 12km

18). In a group of cows and hens, the number of legs are 14 more than twice the number of heads. The number of cows is
A.5                          B.7                       C.10                         D.12
Answer: B

Let the number of cows be x and the number of hens be y. Then, 4x + 2y = 2 (x + y) + 14 4x + 2y = 2x + 2y + 14 2x = 14 x = 7.

19). I have a few sweets to be distributed. If I keep 2, 3 or 4 in a pack, I am left with one sweet. If I keep 5 in a pack, I am left with none. What is the minimum number of sweets I have to pack and distribute ?
A.25                        B.37                      C.54                        D.65
Answer: A

 Clearly, the required number would be such that it leaves a remainder of 1 when divided by 2, 3 or 4 and no remainder when divided by 5.

20). 2 trains starting at the same time from 2 stations 200km apart and going in opposite direction cross each other at a distance of 110km from one of the stations.what is the ratio of their speeds ?
A.11:9                      B.11:8                    C.10:9                      D.10:90
Answer: A
