391. George and Mark can paint 720 boxes in 20 days, Mark and Harry in 24 days and Harry and George in 15 days. George works for 4 days, Mark for 8 days and Harry for 8 days. The total number of boxes painted by them is

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

**Explanation:**

Capacities of these people as followes

G + M = 720/20 = 36

M + H = 720/24 = 30

H + G = 720/15 = 48

Adding all above we get 2(G + M + H ) = 114 => G + M + H = 114/2 = 57

Now individual capacities are given below

G = 27 ; M = 9; H = 21

So 27 * 4 + 9 * 8 + 21 * 8 = 348

392. Curious Elva asked her father what he would gift for her nineteenth birthday. Father replied that it would depend on the day of the week and be one of SUNglasses, MONeybag, ..., FRIedcake, and SATchel. Please help Elva find the day of the week on 08-Jan-2029

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

**Explanation:**

Number of odd days upto 2000 = 0

From 2001 to 2028 = 28 + 7 = 35 = 0 ( 35/7 remainder zero)

From 2019 January 1 to 7 = 7 = 0

So 08 - Jan - 2029 falls on the same week day as 1-1-1 which is Monday.

393. Two decks of cards are there. Each deck contains 20 cards, with numbers from 1 to 20 written on them. A card is drawn of random from each deck, getting the numbers x and y What is the probability that log x + log y is a positive integer. Logs are taken to the base 10.

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

**Explanation:**

Log x + log y = log(xy)

log xy is integer when (x,y) = (1, 10), (10, 1), (10, 10), (5, 20), (20, 5), (2, 5), (5, 2)

So required probability = 7/400

394. The remainder when m + n is divided by 12 is 8, and the remainder when m - n is divided by 12 is 6. If m > n, then what is the remainder when mn divided by 6?

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

**Explanation:**

m+n+8 and m+n+6 is completely divisible by 12.

m+n=8 ----- (1)

m-n=6 ------(2)

By, solving these two equation we get, m=7 & n=1

mn = 7

so when we divide 7 by 6 , we get remainder 1.

395. The shopkeeper charged 12 rupees for a bunch of chocolate. but i bargained to shopkeeper and got two extra ones, and that made them cost one rupee for dozen less then first asking price. How many chocolates I received in 12 rupees ?

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

**Explanation:**

Let us assume cost of 'x' chocolates = Rs. 12

=> cost of each chocolate = 12/x

But I took ' x+2 ' chocolates for Rs. 12

=> I gave Rs. (12/x+2) for each chocolate

Given that I bought dozen chocolates 1 Rupee less than the actual cost of dozen

12(12/x+2)=12(12/x)-1

on solving

x(x+2)=288

= 16*18

=> x=16

398. Of a set of 30 numbers, average of first 10 numbers = average of last 20 numbers. Then the sum of the last 20 numbers is?

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

**Explanation:**

sum = average x number of observations.

Let the common average = x

Now sum of first 10 numbers = 10x

Sum of the last 20 numbers = 20x.

So sum of the last 20 numbers = 2 × sum of the first ten numbers.
