291. In a circular racetrack of length 100 m, three persons A, B and C start together. A and B start in the same direction at speeds of 10 m/s and 8 m/s respectively. While C runs in the opposite at 15 m/s. When will all the three meet for the first time after the start?

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

**Explanation:**

Since the track is a circular track A and B will meet every 50 seconds. i.e. 100 / (10-8).

Since it is a multiple of 50 they will be meeting at the starting point every 50 Seconds.

If you multiply 15 x 50 you will get 750 and after the second 50 it will be 1500.

All of them will meet at the starting point after 100

292. My flight takes off at 2 AM from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place with coordinates 36N 70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Total change in degrees in east-west direction = 70 + 10 degrees =80 degrees,

Time change due to the change in Longitude = 80*4 = 320 minutes = 5 hrs 20 min.

According to the person the time would have been = 2 am + 10 hrs = 12 am.

But according to the local time the time would be = (12 - 5.20) = 6:40 am

293. At a car park there are 100 vehicles, 60 of which are cars, 30 are vans and the remaining are Lorries. If every vehicle is equally likely to leave, find the probability of car leaving second if either a lorry or van had left first :

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

**Explanation:**

Let S be the sample space and A be the event of a van leaving first. n(S) = 100 n (A) = 30

Probability of a van leaving first: P (A) = 30/100 = 3/10

Let B be the event of a lorry leaving first. n (B) = 100 - 60 - 30 = 10 Probability of a lorry leaving first: P (B) = 10/100 = 1/10

If either a lorry or van had left first, then there would be 99 vehicles remaining, 60 of which are cars.

Let T be the sample space and C be the event of a car leaving. n (T) = 99 n(C) = 60

Probability of a car leaving after a lorry or van has left: P(C) = 60/99 = 20/33

295. Today's high school students spend too much time thinking about trivial and distracting matters such as fashion. Additionally, they often dress inappropriately on school grounds. Rather than spending time writing another detailed dress policy, we should make school uniforms mandatory. If students were required to wear uniforms, it would increase a sense of community and harmony in our schools and it would instill a sense of discipline in our students. Another positive effect would be that teachers and administrators would no longer have to act as clothing police, freeing them up to focus on more important issues.

This paragraph best supports the statement that

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

The support for choice e is in the third sentence "we should make school uniforms mandatory". There is no evidence provided to support choices a, b, and d. And although we know that teachers and administrators are spending some of their time enforcing dress code, the paragraph does not quantify how much of their time is spent that way, so there is no support for choice c.
