A boy buys 18 sharpeners (brown or white) for Rs. 100. For every white sharpener, he pays one rupee more than the brown sharpener. What is the cost of white sharpener & how much did he buy?


A5, 13

B5, 10

C6, 10

DNone of these

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Assume that he bought b, brown sharpeners and w, white sharpeners and the cost of brown sharpener is x and white sharpener is x + 1
So w(x+1) + bx = 100
w + b = 18
b = 18 - w
Substituting in equation 1, we get w(x+1) + (18 -w)x = 100 so w + 18 x = 100
Take option 1: If white sharpners are 13, x = (100 - 13) /18 = 4.833
Option 2, If white sharpeners are 10, x = (100 - 10)/18 = 5 So white sharpeners cost is 6.
Option 3 Satisfies this condition.

DNone of these

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

8 people namely F,G,H,J,K,L,M,and N respectively.
Now we have to form 2 groups
1st condition: F will always go with J
Meaning: F and J always lie in same group. ............(i)
2nd condition:G and M will never go together.
Meaning: G and M always lie in different groups. .........(ii)
3rd condition:H will always go with L.
Meaning:H and L always lie in same group. .............(iii)
4th condition:N will always go with G.
Meaning:N and G always lie in same group. ..........(iv)
According to (i),(ii),(iii),and (iv)
2 groups can be formed in following 2 ways

1st Way
Group 1: F, J, G, N
Group 2: M, K, H, L

2nd Way
Group 1: F, J, M, K
Group 2: G, N, H, L

A family I know has several children. Each boy in this family has as many sisters as brothers but each girl has twice as many brothers as sisters. How many brothers and sisters are there?


A5 boys and 3 girls.

B3 boys and 4 girls.

C4 boys and 4 girls.

D4 boys and 3 girls.

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Lets assume no. of girls = x and boys = y
y = (x+1) ----------- (i)
As each boy have equal no. of sisters and brothers and he is not included in brothers.
so, 1 is for him in (x+1).

y = 2(x-1) ------ (ii)
as each girl have (x-1) sisters.
By solving eq. (i) and(ii)
girls = 3 and boys = 4

In a soap company a soap is manufactured with 11 parts. For making one soap you will get 1 part as scrap. At the end of the day u have 251 such scraps. From that how many soaps can be manufactured?


A25

B22

C28

D30

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

251 scraps will be used to make 22 soaps with remaining 9 scraps. again the 22 soaps will produce 22 scraps.
so 22+9=31 scraps which makes 2 soaps with remaining 9 scraps. Again the 2 soaps will produce 2 scraps.
=> we have 11 scraps which can be used to make 1 soap with 1 scrap as remaining.
Therefore totally,22+2+1=25 soaps.
