1. Question 1. A Can Do A Work In 60 Days And B Can Do The Same Work In 40 Days. They Work Together For 12 Days And Then ‘a’ Goes Away. In How Many Days Will ‘b’ Finish The Remaining Work?

Work done by A and B in 12 days is = 12 * 5/120 = 1/2

Therefore Remaining work = 1- 1/2 = 1/2work

B does 1/40 work in one day

Therefore B does 1/2 work in 40*1/2 =20days

2. Question 2. The Average Age Of A Woman And Her Daughter Is 42 Years. The Ratio Of Their Ages Is 2 : 1 Respectively. What Is The Daughter’s Age?

7. Question 5. A Car Travels A Distance Of 170 Km In 2 Hours Partly At A Speed Of 100 Km/h And Partly At 50 Km/h. The Distance Travelled At A Speed Of 50 Km/h Is?

Suppose he covers x km at 100 kmph

So he covers 170-x at 50 kmph

So {X/100}+{170-X}/50=2

Solving this equation, we get x = 140.

So he covers 30km at 50 kmph.

9. Question 6. Even After Reducing The Marked Price Of A Transistor By Rs. 32, A Shopkeeper Makes A Profit Of 15%. If The Cost Price Be Rs. 320, What Percentage Of Profit Would He Have Made If He Had Sold The Transistor At The Marked Price?

Let x be the marked price,

So x – 32 = 320 X 1.15

x  = 400.

So required value is

400 = 320 (1 + profit/100),

So profit is 25%

10. Question 7. The Ratio Of The Present Ages Of A And B 9: 5. Five Years Earlier The Ratio Of Their Was 2 : 1. What Is The Average Of Their Present Ages?

A/b=9/5; i.e. 5a = 9B………. (i)

A-5/B-5 = 2/1; i.e. A-5 = 2B ………10

∴A – 2B = -5………………. (ii)

From equation (i) and (ii), A = 45, B = 25

∴ Average =45+25/2 = 70/2 = 35.

15. Question 10. A Completes 50% Of The Work In 10 Days And Then Decides To Take Help From B And C. B Is Half As Efficient As A And Similarly C Is Half As Efficient As B. How Many More Days Will They Take To Complete The Work?

As A completes half of the work in 10 days, he/she will complete the work in 20 days.

As B is half as efficient as A and C is half as efficient as B,

They will complete the work in 1/20 + 1/40 + 1/80 = 7/80. So 7/80 of the work in a single day.

So, they can complete the entire work in 80/7 days

Therefore, they can complete the remaining 50% of the work in (1/2) x 80/7 = 40/7 days.

16. Question 11. Two Trains Of Length 150 M And 200 M Respectively, Are Travelling In Opposite Directions At A Speed Of 54 Km/hr And 72 Km/hr. What Is The Total Time Taken By Them To Cross Each Other?

54 km/hr = 54 x (5/18) = 15m/s

72 km/hr = 72 x (5/18) = 20 m/s

Total distance = 150 + 200 = 350 m

Relative speed = 15 + 20 = 35 m/s

Total time = Total distance/Relative speed

= 350/35 = 10s

We will group the letters that need to come together (A & E) and consider them as a single letter. So, here the letters are O, R, C, L, and AE.

Number of ways A & E can be arranged is 2!

So, the total number of ways in which the words can be formed so that all vowels are together is 5! x 2! = 240 ways.

22. Question 15. On Selling 100 Articles, A Shopkeeper Earns A Profit Amount Equal To The Selling Price Of 50 Articles. What Is The Profit Percentage Of The Shopkeeper?

Let SP of each article be Re. 1

So, SP of 100 articles =Rs. 100

Implies profit = Rs. 50

So, CP = 100 – 50 = Rs. 50

Therefore, profit percentage of the shopkeeper is 50/50 × 100 = 100%

24. Question 16. A Cone Has Vertical Height And Slant Height As 15 Cm And 17 Cm Respectively. A Hemisphere With The Same Radius As The Cone Is Placed On The Face Of The Cone. What Is The Total Volume Of The Figure Formed?

Using the Pythagoras theorem, the radius of the cone = √ (172 – 152) = 8 cm.

Volume of cone = (1/3) x π x r2 x h= (1/3) x π x 82 x 15

Volume of hemisphere = (2/3) x π x r3 = (2/3) x π x 83

Total volume of figure = Volume of cone + Volume of hemisphere = 4233.58 cu. cm.

25. Question 17. A Can Contains A Mixture Of Two Liquids A And B In The Ratio 7: 5. When 9 Litres Of Mixture Are Drawn Off And The Can Is Filled With B, The Ratio Of A And B Becomes 7: 9. How Many Litres Of Liquid A Were Contained By The Can Initially?

Suppose the can initially contains 7x and 5x litres of mixtures A and B respectively

Quantity of An in mixture left

= (7x – 7/12 x 9) litres = (7x – 21/4) litres.

Quantity of B in mixture left

= (5x – 5/12 x 9) litres = (5x – 15/4) litres.

(7x – 21/4) / [(5x – 15/4) +9] = 7/9 = › 28x – 21/20x + 21 = 7/9 =› 252x – 189 = 140x + 147

=› 112x = 336 =’ x = 3.

So, the can contained 21 litres of A.

27. Question 18. A Vessel Is Filled With Liquid, 3 Parts Of Which Are Water And 5 Parts Of Syrup. How Much Of The Mixture Must Be Drawn Off And Replaced With Water So That The Mixture May Be Half Water And Half Syrup?

Suppose the vessel initially contains 8 litres of liquid. Let x litters of this liquid be replaced with water.

Quantity of water in new mixture = (3 – 3x/8 + x) litres.

Quantity of syrup in new mixture = (5 – 5x/8) litres.

(3 – 3x/8 + x) = (5 – 5x/8) = 5x + 24 = 40 – 5x

=› 10x = 16 =› x = 8/5

So, part of the mixture replaced = (8/5 x 1/8) = 1/5.
