  1. Question 1. Two Goats Are Tied With A Rope Of Length 40m Outside Of A Rectangular Shed Of Dimensions 50m X 30m. The Goats Are Tied To Different Corners Which Lie On The Opposite Ends Of A Diagonal Of The Shed. What Is The Area In Which The Two Goats Can Eat Grass, If They Choose Not To Eat In The Common Aproachable Area?

    Answer :

    Given rope of length = 40m (radius) 

    Area of semi circle =(pi*r^2)/2 = (1600 * pi)/2 = 800*pi —(1)

    Area of quarter circle = (1/2 * 800 * pi) = 400*pi —– (2)

    Area of sector is = r*r*(pi/2)/2 = 25*pi —– (3)

    By adding above eq. (1) (2) & (3)

    Total area = 1225*pi

    As per quesiton there are 2 goats

    so area = 1225*pi*2 = 2450pi.

  2. Question 2. In A Society Of 80 Resident Families Who Subscribe Newspapers, 60% Of Them Subscribe The Hindu Newspaper, 80% Of Them Subscribe Regional Language Newspaper And 70% Of Them Subscribe Toi. How Many Families Could, At The Least, Be Subscribing To All The Three Newspapers?

    Answer :

    Total no. of families who take newspaper=80

    Hindu newspaper = 60% = (80*60/100) = 48

    Regional newspaper = 80% = (80*80/100) = 64

    TOI newspaper = 70% = (70*80/100) = 56

    Find common families take H.C.F (48,64,56) = 8

    Therefore,(8/80)*100=10%

    So, common families who take all newspaper = 10%.

  5. Question 4. A Father Is 30 Years Older Than His Son However He Will Be Only Thrice As Old As The Son After 5 Years What Is Father’s Present Age ?

    Answer :

    Lets assume son’s age = x

    So, father’s age = x + 30

    After 5 years:

    Son’s age = x + 5

    Father’s age = x + 35

    In 5 years the father is thrice as old as his son so:

    3(x + 5) = x + 35

    x = 10

    So, current father’s age = 40 Years.

  6. Question 5. A Person Travels In A Car With Uniform Speed. He Observes The Milestone,which Has 2 Digits. After One Hour He Observes Another Milestone With Same Digits Reversed. After Another Hour He Observes Another Milestone With Same 2 Digits Separated By 0. Find The Speed Of The Car?

    Answer :

    Let 10’splace digit is x and unit’s place digit y

    First milestone : 10x+y

    Second milestone : 10y+x

    Third milestone: 100x+y

    Since the speed is uniform so

    Distance covered in first Hr = Distance covered in Second Hr

    (10y+x)-(10x+y) = (100x+y)-(10y+x)

    By solving,

    y=6x 

    but since x and y are digits so only possible combination is x=1 and y=6,

    So average speed = 45 Kmph.

    C+D=102

    B+D=116

    A+2B+C=262

    B+C+2D=218

    A+B-2D=44

    132-2D=44

    D=44.

  11. Question 8. A Cylinder Is 6 Cms In Diameter And 6 Cms In Height. If Spheres Of The Same Size Are Made From The Material Obtained, What Is The Diameter Of Each Sphere?

    Answer :

    The volume of the cylinder is Pi x r^2 x h = Pi x 3^2 x 6 = 54Pi 

    Volume of a cylinder is 4/3 x Pi x r^3 

    Now 54Pi = 12 x 4/3 x Pi x r^3 

    54 = 16 x r^3 

    r^3 = 54/16 = 27/8 

    r = 3/2 

    Therefore diameter is 3 cms.

  12. Question 9. A Survey Of A Village Showed That 1 / 10 Of The Total Population Speak Neither Hindi Nor English. 1 / 5 Of Them Cannot Speak English And 3 / 7 Of Them Cannot Speak Hindi. What Percentages Of People Know Only One Language?

    Answer :

    persons who can speak English = 1 – (1/5) = 4/5

    persons who can speak Hindi = 1 – (3/7) = 4/7

    persons who can speak any or both = 1 – 1/10 = 9/10

    so total persons speak both = 4/5 + 4/7 – 9/10 = 33/70

    persons speak any = 1 – 33/70 – 1/10 = 3/7

    % = 300/7% = 42.86%.

  19. Question 13. If M^2+m^-2=23;then What Is The Value Of M^3+m^-3?

    Answer :

    m^2+m^-2=23

    => (m + m^-1)^2 – 2 = 23

    => (m + m^-1) = 5

    m^3+m^-3 = (m + m^-1)^3 – 3(m + m^-1) = 5^3 – 3*5 = 110.

  20. Question 14. If M=2- _/3 Find The Value Of: M^6+m^5+m^4+1)/m^3?

    Answer :

    m = (2 – ?3)

    => 1/m = (2 + ?3)

    (m^6+m^5+m^4+1)/m^3

    = m^3 + m^2 + m + 1/m^3

    = (m + 1/m)^3 – 3(m +1/m) + m(m+1)

    = 4^3 – 3*4 + (2-?3)(3-?3)

    = 64 – 12 + 9 – 5?3

    = (61 – 5?3).

  24. Question 17. When A Square Of An Odd Number Is Divided By 8?

    Answer :

    Let’s call the odd number 2a+1, where a is an integer.

    Then (2a+1)^2 = 4a^2 + 4a + 1 = 4a(a+1) + 1.

    Since a is odd, a+1 is even.

    So, 4a(a+1) has to be a multiple of 8

    Therefore 4a(a+1) + 1 must leave a remainder of 1 when divided by 8.

  26. Question 18. If Each Of The Three Nonzero Numbers A , B , And C Is Divisible By 3, Then Abc Must Be Divisible By Which One Of The Following The Number?

    Answer :

    Since each one of the three numbers a, b, and c is divisible by 3, the numbers can be represented as 3p,3q, and 3r, respectively, where p, q, and r are integers.

    The product of the three numbers is 3p*3q*3r =27(pqr).

    Since p, q, and r are integers, pqr is an integer and therefore abc is divisible by 27.

  37. Question 25. 1,40,00,000 Pencils Are Put Up Straight. All The Pencils Are Of Length Range 3 To 6 Inches. 80% Of The Pencils Have Average Of Five Inches. So The Find Out The Total Length Spanned By The Pencils?

    Answer :

    length covered by 80% of the pencils =80/100 * 14000000 * 5 = 56000000 inches

    Minimum length covered by remaining 20% of the pencils =20/100 * 14000000 * 3 = 8400000 inches

    Maximum length covered by remaining 20% of the pencils =20/100 * 14000000 * 6 = 16800000 inches

    Hence, total length spanned by the pencils is (56000000 +8400000) to (56000000 +16800000 )

    ie, 64400000 inches to 72800000 inches.
