B alone one day work = (1/8 - 1/12) = ( 3/24 - 2/24)

=> B one day work = 1/24

so B can complete the work in 24 days.

4. A can finish a piece work in 18 days and B can do the same work in half the time taken by A. So if they working together, what part of the same work can finished in a day?

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

First find the 1 day work of both (A & B)

A's 1 day's work = 1/18

and

B's 1 day's work = 1/9 (B can do work in half time)

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/18+1/9)

= (1+2)/18 = 3/18 = 1/6

so A & B together can do 1/6 of work in 1 day.

6. If 6 is subtracted from the present age of Ritu and the remainder is divided by 6, then the present age of Sheema is obtained. If Sheema is 4 years younger to raju whose age is 12 years, then find the age of Ritu

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

**Explanation:**

Lets assume Ritu present age = x years

so sheema age = (x-6)/6 years

As per question:

sheema age [(x-6)/6 + 4] = 12

(x-6)/6 = 12 - 4

=> (x-6)/6 = 8

=> x - 6 = 48 => x = 54

So Ritu age = 54 years.

**Explanation:**

Simply appreciates variety 1 by 26% and depreciates variety 2 by 26% as:

3969(1-(1/26))^n=1369(1+)1/26))^n

For n = 2 we get both values equal.

Variety 2 Variety1

3969.00 1369 Initially

2937.06 1724.94 after I year

2173.42 2173.42 after II year

10. A ball dropped from H height and moves 80% of height each time. Total distance covered is

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

**Explanation:**

First time distance= H

Second time = 80H/100 = 4H/5

similarly third time 80% of 4H/5 = H(4^2)/(5^2)

and so on..

This will lead to infinite terms of geometric progression

i.e H+2*4H/5+2*16H/25..

So, Sum = H+ 2*4H/(5(1-4/5)) = 9H
