311. 2 workers, one young and one old, live together and work at the same office. It takes 20 minutes for the young man to walk to office. The old man takes 30 minutes for the same distance. When will the young man catch up with the old man if the old man starts at 10:00 a.m. and the young man start 10:05 a.m.?

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

Time ratio is 3:2, so

3 min for old = 2 min fro young

1 min for old = 2/3 min fro young

Now we will take multiple of 3 both side,

3 min for old = 2 min fro young

6 min for old = 4 min fro young

9 min for old = 6 min fro young

12 min for old = 8 min fro young

15 min for old = 10 min fro young and so on

Now the difference of time to start for old and young is 5 min. So when they meet then old will take 5 minute more than young ( or their time difference should be 5 min) which is given by only

15 min for old = 10 min fro young

So at 10:15 for old and for young it is 10:05 + 10 min = 10:15

312. Consider all permutation (i.e. arrangements) of the digits 1 2 and 3. We will say that a hit has been scored if at least one digit occurs in its proper position in the permutation i.e. if one occurs in the 1st position or 2 in the 2nd position or 3 in the 3rd position. In how many of these permutations is a hit scored?

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

1 can be arrange in 123, 132

2 can be arrange in 321

3 can be arrange in 213

So, No. of possobolity = 4.

315. Oranges can be packed in sets of 10 oranges in box type A or 25 orange in box type B. A carton comprising of 1000 oranges of type A and type B boxes is packed. How many different combinations are possible in the number of type A and type B boxes while organizing the oranges?

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

**Explanation:**

The expression will be 10x+25y=1000 ----------(1)

The exp (1) satisfied only with multiples of 2 up to 38.

so no. of combinations are 19.

if oranges are packed in type A boxes only= 1 way

if oranges are packed in type B boxes only= 1 way

Hence total = 19+1+1 = 21

Given numbers are 90207,127986 and 232585.

To Get the greatest number which divides given numbers without leaving a remainder.

i.e find the HCF of given numbers.

90207=3*3*3*13*257

127986=2*3*83*257

317. A,B ,C can do some work in 36 days. A and B together do twice as much work as C can do alone, and A and C together can do thrice as much work as B alone can do. Find the time taken by C to do whole work?

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

**Explanation:**

Given A, B and C can do some work = 36 days.

=> (A+B+C) can do work in 1 day = 1/36

=> (A+B+C) = 1/36 -----------------(i)

Given (A+B) = 2C ----------------(ii)

From eq. (i)and(ii)

3C = 1/36

C = 1/108

=> C takes 108 days to complete whole work alone.
