Choose the correct option.

A group consists of equal number of men and women. Of them 10% of men and 45% of women are unemployed. If a person is randomly selected from the group. Find the probability for the selected person to be an employee.


A15/40

B30/40

C29/40

D19/40

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Lets assume men=100, women=100 then employed men & women = (100-10)+(100-45) = 145
So probability for the selected person to be an employee = (145/200) = 29/40

Aniket and kumari are a married couple. They have two kids, one of them is a girl. Assume safely that the probability of each gender is 1/2.What is the probability that the other kid is also a girl?


A1/2

B1/3

C2/3

DNone of these

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

There are 4 possible conditions of two children.



Girl – Girl, Girl – Boy, Boy – Girl, Boy - Boy



Since we know one of the children is a girl, we will drop the Boy-Boy possibility from the sample space.



This leaves only three possibilities, one of which is two girls. Hence the probability is 1/3

C8-Jul

D8-Jan

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

The probability of drawing red or blue is equal.
Probability to draw exactly 3 red hats and 1 blue hat =1/2*1/2*1/2*1/2=1/16
Similarly probability to draw exactly 3 blue hats and 1 red hat =1/2*1/2*1/2*1/2=1/16
Total probability =1/16+1/16=1/8

From a railway station, trains leave for every 15 minutes and 25 minutes to city A and city B respectively. First train to city A and city B start at 9 am and 10:15 am respectively. If a man arrives to the station in between 11:25 am and 12:25 pm then the probability of getting train for city A is:


A1/4

B4/7

C3/7

D2/5

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Given man arrived station in between 11.25 am and 12.25 pm.
First train to city A is at 9 am and there is a train for every 15 minutes.
Trains for city A will leave at the following times : 9:00 am, 9:15 am, 9:30 am,.......,11:30 am, 11:45 am, 12:00 pm, 12:15pm, and so on.
Number of trains for city A between 11:25 am and 12:25 pm is 4.
First train to city B is at 10:15 am and there is a train for every 25 minutes.
Trains for city B will leave at the following times: 10:15 am, 10:40 am, 11:05 am, 11:30 am, 11:55 am, 12:20 pm, and so on.
Number of trains for city B between 11:25 am and 12:25 pm is 3.
Probability of getting train for city A between 11:25 am and 12:25 pm = Number trains for city A from 11:25 am to 12:25 pm / Total number of trains for city A and B from 11:25 am to 12:25 pm

Choose the correct option.

There are two bus stands, namely X and Y. Buses leave from X for every 30 minutes and its first bus starts at 8:05 am. Every hour number of buses leaving from Y increases by 1 and its first bus starts at 7:00 am. From Y there is only 1 bus for the 1st hour. Any bus from either of the bus stations takes 15 minutes to reach a nearby bus stop. Suppose a person reaches the stop in between 12:15 pm and 1:15 pm. The probability that the person will get a bus from Y is:


A1/4

B1

C2/3

D3/4

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

From bus stand X :
The first bus will leave by 8.05 am and reach the bus stop in 15 minutes, i.e. at 8.20 am
The second bus will leave after 30 minutes i.e. at 8.35 am and will reach the stop at 8.50 am
Therefore, buses will reach the stop at the following times: 8.20am, 8.50am, 9.20 am,.....,12.20 pm, 12.50 pm, 1.20 pm and so on.
Between 12.15 pm and 1.15 pm, two buses will reach the stop at 12.20 pm and 1.20 pm.
Therefore, the person will get 2 buses from X.
From bus stand Y :
The first bus will leave by 7 am and reach the bus stop in 15 minutes, i.e. at 7.15 am.
There is only one bus for first 1 hour.
i.e., the second bus will leave at 8 am.
Note that, the number of buses leaving from Y is increased by 1 per hour.
From 8 am to 9 am, two buses will leave from Y and reach the stop between 8.15 am to 9.15 am.
And from 9 am to 10 am, 3 buses will leave from Y and reach the stop between 9.15 am to 10.15 am.
Proceeding like this, we have,
From 12 pm to 1 pm, 6 buses will leave from Y and reach the stop between 12.15 pm to 1.15 pm.
Therefore, the person will get 6 buses from Y between 12.15 pm to 1.15 pm.
The probability of getting the bus from Y between 12.15 pm to 1.15 pm = Number buses from Y in between 12.15 pm to 1.15 pm / Total number of buses from X and Y in between 12.15 pm to 1.15pm = 6/(2+6) = 6/8 = 3/4.

A1/56

B2/5

C3/8

D5/6

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Answer: 1/56

Solution: According to the question the relative positions should remain unaltered. So consonants should occupy the consonant positions and vowels should occupy the vowel positions.

There are 3 vowels which can be arranged in 3! ways and 5 consonants which can be arranged in 5! ways.

So the probability=(3!*5!)/8!=1/56 (8! Because all the words can be arranged randomly in that number of ways.
