1. A train 575 m long crosses a tunnel of length 325 in 90 sec. What is the speed of the train in kmph.

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

**Explanation:**

Total distance traveled = Length of train + Length of tunnel

= 575 + 325 = 900.

Time taken to cross the tunnel = 90 sec.

Speed in kmph = distance/time * 18/5 = 900/90 * 18/5 = 180/5 = 36 kmph.

2. Three partner's A,B,C start a business. Twice A's capital is equal to thrice B's capital and B's capital is four times C's capital. Out of a total profit of Rs.16500 at the end of the year, B's share is:

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

**Explanation:**

Let C = x.

Then B = 4x and 2A = 3 * 4x = 12x. or A = 6x.

Therefore, A : B : C = 6x : 4x : x = 6 : 4 : 1.

Therefore, B's capital = Rs. 16500 * 4/11= Rs.6000.

3. The probability that a number selected at random from first 50 natural numbers is a composite number is

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

**Explanation:**

The number of exhaustive events = 50C1 = 50.

We have 15 primes from 1 to 50.

Number of favourable cases are 34.

Therefore, Required probability = 34/50 = 17/25.

4. Two pipes A and B together can fill a cistern in 4 hours. Had they been opened separately, then B would have taken 6 hours more than A to fill the cistern. How much time will be taken by A to fill the cistern separately?

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

**Explanation:**

Let the cistern be filled by pipe A alone in x hours.

Then, pipe B will fill it in (x + 6) hours.

.'. 1/x + 1/(x + 6) = 1/4

=> (x + 6 + x)/x(x + 6)= 1/4

=> x^2 - 2x - 24 = 0.

=> (x -6)(x + 4) = 0.

=> x = 6. [neglecting the negative value of x]

5. An article is sold at a certain price. By selling it at 2/3 of that price one loses 10%. Find the gain percent at original price.

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

**Explanation:**

Let the original S.P be Rs. X.

Then new S.P = Rs. (2/3)X, Loss =10%

So, C.P = Rs. [100/90 * (2/3)X ] = 20X/27.

Now C.P = Rs. 20X/27, S.P =Rs. X.

Gain = Rs. [ X -20X/27 ] =Rs.7X/27.

Hence, Gain % = [ 7X/27 *27/20X *100 ]% = 35%.

6. A lent Rs. 5000 to B for 2 years and Rs. 3000 to C for 4 years on simple interest at the same rate of interest and received Rs. 2200 in all from both of them as interest. The rate of interest per annum is:

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

**Explanation:**

Let the rate be R% p.a.

Then, (5000 x R x 2)/100 + (3000 x R x 4)/100 = 2200.

=> 100R + 120R = 2200

=> R = 2200/220 = 10.

.'. Rate = 10%.

7. In a group of donkeys and pigs, the numbers of legs are 16 more than twice the number of heads. The number of donkeys is

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

**Explanation:**

Let the number of donkeys be x and the number of pigs be y.

Then,

=> 4x + 2y = 2(x + y) = 16.

=> 2x + (2x + 2y) = (2x + 2y) + 16.

=> x = 8.

10. Today, the age of a father is thrice the age of his son. Ater 5 years the age of father will be 2.5 times the age of his son. What is the age of son today?

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

**Explanation:**

Let the age of son = S years and the age of father = F years.

According to the question,

=> F = 3*S.

=> F = 3S.

After 5 years,

=> (F+5) = 2.5 * (S+5).

=> 3S + 5 = 2.5S + 12.5 [put F=3S]

=> 0.5S = 7.5

=> S = 15

Hence, the age of son = 15 years.
