Q.3 Abhishek had a certain number of Re1 coins, Rs 2 coins and Rs 10 coins. If the number of Re 1 coins he had is six times the number of Rs 2 coins Abhishek had, and the total worth of his coins is Rs 160, find the maximum number of Rs 10 coins Abhishek could have had.

A) 12

B) 10

C) 8

D) 6

Ans. A

If the Abhishek had x Re 1, y Rs 2 coins and z Rs 10 coins, the total value of coins he had:

=x(1)+y(2)+z(10)=x+2y+10z=160

Since, 6y=x

Thus, 8y+10z=160 i.e 8y is a multiple of 10 i.e. y=5 or y=10

i.e. (x,y,z)=(30,5,12) or (60,10,18)

Thus, the maximum value of ‘z’ is 12

Q.5 The following table shows he marks obtained by two students in different subjects:

Student A Maximum Marks Student B Maximum Marks

English 60 100 80 150

Psychology70 100 70 100

History 50 100 60 100

Sanskrit 30 50 15 25

The difference in the mean aggregate %ge marks of the students is-

A) 2.5%

B) 13.75%

C) 1.25%

D) Zero

Ans. D

Explanation:

Mean %ge of A=

=(60+70+60+15/150+100+100+25)*100%

=225/375 *100%

=60%

Reqd. mean aggregate %ge marks of the students

=60%-60%

= Zero

Q.6 A bell rings every 18 minutes. A second bell rings every 24 minutes. A third bell rings every 32 minutes. If all the three bells ring at the same time at 3 O’ clock in the morning,at what other time will they all ring together?

A) 12:40 hrs

B) 12:48 hrs

C) 12:56 hrs

D) 13:04 hrs

Ans. B

Explanation:

L.C.M. of 18, 24 & 32=288

Time in hrs=288/60

=4:48

So, reqd. time = 8+ 4:48

=12:48 hrs

Q.7 ‘Price is not the same thing as the value. Suppose that on a day the price of everything viz, coal, bread, postage stamps, a day’s labour, the rent of houses, etc. were to double. Prices then would certainly rise, but values of all things except one would not.

The writer wants to say that if prices of all things were doubled-

A) The values of all things would remain constant.

B) The values of the things sold would be doubled

C) The values of the things bought would be halved

D) The value of the money only would be halved.

Ans. D

Q.8 A & B decide to travel from place X to place Y by bus. A has Rs. 10 with him & he finds that it is 80% of the bus fare for two persons. B finds that he has Rs. 3 with him & hands it over to A. in this context, which one is correct?

A) Now the money A has is just enough to buy two tickets.

B) A still needs Rs. 2 for buying the tickets.

C) After buying the two tickets A will be left with 50 paise

D) The money A now has is still not sufficient to buy two tickets.

Ans. C

Explanation:

Let the reqd.amount is= Rs. X

As per question,

80% of x = Rs. 10

X= 10*100/80

=Rs. 12.5

(A+B)’s total amount

= Rs. (10+3)

=Rs. 13

Remaining amount

=Rs.(13-12.5)

=50 paise

Q.9 As per aggrement with a bank, a businessman had to refund a loan in some equal instalments without interest. After paying 18 nstalments he found that 60% of hi loan was refunded. How many instalments were there in the agreement?

A) 22

B) 24

C) 30

D) 33

Ans. C

Explanation:

Let the no. of reqd. instalments would be x

60% of x= 18

60/100 * x= 18

X= 30

A) 3 km

B) 4 km

C) 5 km

D) 6 km
