171. There are 3 trucks A,B and C. A loads at the rate of 10kg/min and B loads at the rate of 13 1/3 kg/min. C unloads at the rate of 5kg/min. If all the 3 trucks are acting simultaneously, find the time taken to load 2.4 tonnes.

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

A loads in 1 min = 10 kg.

B loads in 1 min = 13 1/3 kg = 40/3 kg.

C unloads in 1 min = 5kg.

So 10+ 40/3 -5 = 55/3

Hence 1 kg loaded by A,B and C together = 3/55 min

So for 2.4 tonnes to be loaded = 2.4 *1000* 3/55 =130.9 min

**Explanation:**

30L + 3Q = 1167

30L + 6Q = 1284

Solving we get Q = 39, L = 35

So cost of first 10 kgs of apples = 35 * 10 = 350

174. Three dice are rolled. What is the probability that you will get the sum of the numbers as 10?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Total events = 6*6*6=216

possible cases for sum equal to 10 are

(1,3,6)-6 combinations + (1,4,5)-6 combinations + (2,3,5)-6 combinations + (2,4,4)-3 combinations + (3,3,4)-3 combinations +

(2,2,6)-3 combinations

So, Total combinations = 27

Hence probability = 27/216

179. A can complete a piece of work in 8 hours, B can complete in 10 hours and C in 12 hours. If A,B, C start the work together but A laves after 2 hours. Find the time taken by B and C to complete the remaining work.

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

A,B,C 1 hour work is=1/8+1/10+12= 37/120

A,B,C work together for 2 hours, so,A,B,C 2 hours work is: (37/120)*2=37/60

remaining work=1-37/60=23/60 (23/60 work is done by B and C together)

B,C 1 hour work is= 1/10+1/12=11/60

23/60 hours work done by B,C= (11/60)* (60/23)=11/23

So B & C and complete the remaining work = 2 1/11 days.
