401. Out of 9 person, 8 person spent RS.30 each for their meals. The 9th one spent Rs.20 more than the average expenditure of all the nine. The total money spent by all of them was:

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

**Explanation:**

Let the 9th person spend Rs x.

Then the total sum spent by the nine people = 30 x 8 + x

= 240 + x.

So the average expenditure = (240 + x)/9.

Now x is 20 more than the average expenditure.

So, x = (240 + x)/9 + 20

Therefore x - 20 = (240 + x)/9

Thus, 9x - 180 = 240 + x

Or, 8x = 420

Or x = 52.50

Therefore total money spent = 240 + 52.50 = 292.50

403. Three terrorists are employed to shoot a renowned person Mr. X. Only one bullet is sufficient to kill him if it strikes in the head. The probabilities of the terrorists striking Mr. X's head by their bullets are 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4. What is the probability that Mr. X is shot dead?

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

**Explanation:**

Probability of Mr. X shot dead = Probability of atleast one terrorist shoot on head

= 1 - (Probability of None shoot on head)

=1-(0.8*0.7*0.6)

404. How many Palindrone number are there between 5000 To 67000 . Palindrone no 5335 is palindone no because if u read from first and last the value remains same

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

**Explanation:**

5000 To 10000 = Per section 10 Total 5 section S/T = 5*10 = 50

Than

10000 To 67000 = Per Section 10 Total 57 Section S/T = 57*100 = 570

Total is = 50+570 = 620

405. How many 4-digit numbers contain no.2?

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

**Explanation:**

Total number of four digit numbers =9000 (i.e 1000 to 9999 ) We try to find the number of numbers not having digit 2 in them.

Now consider the units place it can be selected in 9 ways (i.e 0,1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) Tens place it can be selected in 9 ways (i.e 0,1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)

Hundreds place it can be selected in 9 ways (i.e 0,1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)

Thousands place can be selected in 8 ways (i.e 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) here '0' cannot be taken Total number of numbers not having digit 2 in it =9 x 9 x 9 x 8 =5832

Total number of numbers having digit 2 in it = 9000-5832 =3168

406. If twenty four men and sixteen women work on a day, the total wages to be paid is 11,600. If twelve men and thirty seven women work on a day, the total wages to be paid remains the same. What is the wages paid to a man for a day's work?

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

**Explanation:**

Let man daily wages and woman daily wages be M and W respectively 24M+16W=11600

12M+37W=11600

By, solving the above equations gives M=350 and W=200

408. A manufacturer of chocolates makes 6 different flavors of chocolates. The chocolates are sold in boxes of 10.

How many "different" boxes of chocolates can be made?

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

**Explanation:**

If n similar articles are to be distributed to r persons, x1+x2+x3......xr=n each person is eligible to take any number of articles then the total ways are n+r?1Cr?1

In this case x1+x2+x3......x6=10

In such a case the formula for non negative integral solutions is n+r?1Cr?1 Here n = 6 and r = 10. So total ways are 10+6?1C6?1 = 3003

410. A circle circumscribes three unit circles that touch each other. What is the area of the larger circle? Note that p is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle (3.14159265).

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

**Explanation:**

By joining centers of 3 unit circles we will get an equilateral triangle of length 2 unit. We have to find the length of the orange line.

And center of the equilateral triangle will be the center of the big circle.

So radius of the big circle will be = (1 + Circum radius of the equilateral triagle)

Formula for Circul radius of the equilateral triangle = 23*(3?2a) here 3?2a is the height of the triangle. a is the side of the triangle

Circum radius of equilateral triangle = 23*3?2*2=23?

Area of big circle will be =?r2=3.14*(1+23?)2 = 3.14*(1+43?+43) =3.14*(1+43?+43) = 3.14*(73+43?)

=3.14*(7+43?3)
