a. 1

b. 2

c. 3

d. 4

Ans : The square root of

[(0.75)3/1 – 0.75 + {0.75 + (0.75)2 + 1}]

= √1.6875 + 2.3125

=√4

= 2

a. 70.4

b. 70.464

c. 71.104

d. 71.4

Ans : Given Exp. = √4096 + √40.96 +√0.004096

= 64 + 6.4 + 0.064

= 70.464

13. By selling an article at 3/4th of the marked price, there is a gain of 25%. The ratio of the marked price and the cost price is-

a. 5 : 3

b. 3 : 5

c. 3 : 4

d. 4 : 3

We know S.P. = Rs.3x/4

and C.P. = 3x/4 * 100/125

= Rs.3x/5

We know required ratio = x: 3x/5

= 5:3

14. A and B earn in the ratio 2:1. They spend in the ratio 5:3 and save in the ratio 4:1. If the total monthly savings of both A and B are Rs.5,000, the monthly income of B is-

a. Rs.7,000

b. Rs.14,000

c. Rs.5,000

d. Rs.10,000

We know Monthly income of A = Rs. 2x and

Saving of A =5000 * 4/(4 + 1)

= Rs. 4000

Saving of B = Rs.1000

We know that 2x – 4000/x-1000 = 5/3

=> 6x – 12000 = 5x – 5000

We know x = Rs.7000

15. The ratio of the sum of two numbers and their difference is 5:1. The ratio of the greater number to the smaller number is-

a. 2 : 3

b. 3 : 2

c. 5 : 1

d. 1 : 5

We know that x + y/ x – y = 5/1

=> 5x – 5y = x + y

=> 4x = 6y

=> x/y = 6/4

x : y = 3 : 2

16. A cistern has 3 pipes A, B and C. A and B can fill it in 3 and 4 hours respectively, and C can empty it in 1 hour. If the pipes are opened at 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. respectively on the same day, the cistern will be empty at-

a. 7.12 p.m.

b. 7.15 p.m.

c. 7.10 p.m.

d. 7.18 p.m.

We know that x -3/3 + x – 4/4 = x – 5/1

=> 4x – 12 + 3x – 12/12 = x – 5/1

=> 7x – 24 = 12x – 60

=> 5x = 36

We know x = 36/5

= 7 hr. + 12 min.

= 7.12 p.m.

17. If A works alone, he would take 4 days more to complete the job than if both A and B worked together. If B worked alone, he would take 16 days more to complete the job than if A and B work together. How many days would they take to complete the work if both of them worked together?

a. 10 days

b. 12 days

c. 6 days

d. 8 days

Let x days are taken when they work together.

We know Time taken by A to complete the work = (x + 4) days

And Time taken by B to complete the work = (x + 16) days

We know that 1/x = 1/x + 4 + 1/x + 16

We know 1/x = x + 16 + x + 4/(x + 4) (x +16)

We know 2×2 + 20x = x2 + 20x +64

We know x2 = 64 (8)2

We know x = 8 days

18. 250 men can finish a work in 20 days working 5 hours a day. To finish the work within 10 days working 8 hours a day, the minimum number of men required is-

a. 310

b. 300

a. 36 days

b. 21 days

c. 30 days

d. 42 days

We know that (2m + 5w) * 12 = (5m + 2w) * 9

=> 24m + 60w = 45m + 18w

=> 21m = 42w

=> 1m = 2w

We know 2m + 5w = 9w

We know required no. of days = 9 * 12/3

= 36
