Choose the correct option.

Find the day of the week on 16 th july, 1776


ASaturday

BTuesday

CMonday

DFriday

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

16 th july, 1776 means = 1775 years + period from 1st january to 16 july
Now, 1600 years have 0 odd days.
100 years have 5 odd days.
75 years = 18 leap years + 57 ordinary years
= (36 + 57) odd days = 93 odd days
= 13 weeks + 2 odd days = 2 odd days
Therefore, 1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 0 odd days.
Now, days from 1st Jan to 16 th july; 1776
Jan Feb March April May June July
31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 16 = 198 days
= (28 weeks + 2 days) odd days
Therefore, total number of odd days = 2
So, the day of the week was Tuesday

Choose the correct option.

The base of a triangular field is three times its altitude. If the cost of cultivating the field at Rs. 24.68 per hectare be Rs. 333.18, find its base and height.


ABase = 100 m & Height = 200m.

BBase = 900 m & Height = 300m.

CBase = 1900 m & Height = 300m.

DBase = 900 m & Height = 1300m.

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Area of the field = Total cost/Rate = (333.18/24.68) hectares =13.5 hectares.
= (13.5*10000) m^2 =135000m^2.
Let altitude = x meters and base = 3x meters.
Then, 1/2 *3x* x= 135000 or x^2 = 9000 or x= 300.
Therefore, base =900 m & altitude = 300m.

Choose the correct option.

Rs.432 is divided amongst three workers A, B and C such that 8 times A's share is equal to 12 times B's share which is equal to 6 times C's share. How much did A get?


ARs. 134.

BRs. 140.

CRs. 144.

DRs. 212.

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

8 times A's share = 12 times B's share = 6 times C's share.
Note that this is not the same as the ratio of their wages being 8 : 12 : 6

In this case, find out the L.C.M of 8, 12 and 6 and divide the L.C.M by each of the above
numbers to get the ratio of their respective shares.

The L.C.M of 8, 12 and 6 is 24.
Therefore, the ratio A:B:C :: 24/8 : 24/12 : 24/6
=> A : B : C :: 3 : 2 : 4

The sum of the total wages = 3x + 2x + 4x = 432 => 9x = 432 or x = 48.
Hence A gets 3 * 48 = Rs. 144.

Choose the correct option.

The ratio of marks obtained by vinod and Basu is 6:5. If the combined average of their percentage is 68.75 and their sum of the marks is 275, find the total marks for which exam was conducted.


A100

B200

C150

D180

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Let Vinod marks be 6x and Basu's is 5x. Therefore, the sum of the marks = 6x + 5x = 11x.
But the sum of the marks is given as 275 = 11x. We get x = 25 therefore, vinod marks is 6x = 150and Basu marks = 5x = 125.
Therefore, the combined average of their marks = (150 + 125) / 2 = 137.5.
If the total mark of the exam is 100 then their combined average of their percentage is 68.75
Therefore, if their combined average of their percentage is 137.5 then the total marks would be
(137.5 / 68.75)*100 = 200.

What was the day of the week on 12th January, 1979?


ASaturday

BTuesday

CMonday

DFriday

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Number of odd days in (1600 + 300) years = (0 + 1) = 1 odd day.
78 years = (19 leap years + 59 ordinary years) = (38 + 59) odd days = 6 odd days
12 days of January have 5 odd days.
Therefore, total number of odd days= (1 + 6 + 5) = 5 odd days.
Therefore, the desired day was Friday.

Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.

 The great event of the New York cultural season of 1882 was the visit of the sixty two year old English philosopher and social commentator Herbert Spencer. Nowhere did Spencer have a larger or more enthusiastic following than in the United States, where such works as ?Social Statics and ?The Data of Ethics were celebrated as powerful justifications for laissez fair capitalism. Competition was preordained; its result was progress; and any institution that stood in the way of individual liberties was violating the natural order.Survival of the fittest a phrase that Charles Darwin took from Spencer made free competition a social as well as a natural law. Spencer was, arguably, the single most influential systematic thinker of the nineteenth century, but his influence, compared with that of Darwin, Marx, or Mill, was short lived. In 1937, the Harvard sociologist Talcott Parsons asked, ?Who now reads Spencer?

Seventy years later, the question remains pertinent, even if no one now reads Talcott Parsons, either. In his day, Spencer was the greatest of philosophical hedgehogs: his popularity stemmed from the Page 54 fact that he had one big, easily grasped idea and a mass of more particular ideas that supposedly flowed from the big one. The big idea was evolution, but, while Darwin applied it to species change, speculating about society and culture only with reluctance, Spencer saw evolution working everywhere. ?This law of organic progress is the law of all progress, he wrote, ?whether it be in the development of the Earth, in the development of Life upon its surface, in the development of Society, of Government, of Manufactures, of Commerce, of Language, Literature, Science, [or] Art.

Spencer has been tagged as a social Darwinist, but it would be more correct to think of Darwin as a biological Spencerian. Spencer was very well known as an evolutionist long before Darwin's ?On the Origin of Species was published, in 1859, and people who had limited interest in the finches of the Galapagos had a great interest in whether the state should provide for the poor or whether it was right to colonize India.
