Answers

1. (3)

Required number of days = (30 * 36)/18 = 60

2. (4)

Let total income of Gaurav be x. Then

(100 – 50 – 20 – 5)% of x = 11250

x = 45000.

3. (3)

Let the number be xy

(10x + y) – (10y + x) = 54

x – y = 6 And x + y = 12

Solving the equations we get x = 9 and y = 3

So the number is 93.

4. (1)

Let the age of Ayushi’s daughter be x. Then Ayushi’s age is 8x.

(8x + 8)/ (x + 8) = 10/3

x = 4

Ayushi present age = 8x = 32 years.

5. (3)

Required number of ways = 4! * 3! * 2! = 288.

6. 1

(X + Y)’s 6 days’ work = 6 * (1/20 + 1/10) = 9/10

Remaining work = 1 – 9/10 = 1/10

1/10 work is done 2y Y in 10 * 1/10 = 1 day

7. 4

Let the CP is Rs x.

Then, x * 110/100 = 990

x = 900

Now CP is Rs 900 and SP is 880.

% loss = 20/900 * 100 = 20/9%

8. 3

Let the number of student is x out of that 40% have failed.

40/100 * x = 320

x = 320 * 100/40 = 800

9. 4

CP = Rs 840 and SP = Rs 920

Gain = 920 – 840 = Rs 80

gain percentage = 80/840 * 100 = 9.52%

10. 2;

Amar’s salary is less than of Sandeep 2y

(R/100 + R * 100)% = (30/(100 + 30) * 100)%

(30/130 *100 )% = 300/13% = 23% APPROX

Answers with Explanation:-

1. A

Explanation:

This is an alternating subtraction series with the interpolation of a random number, 5, as every third number. In the subtraction series, 3 is subtracted, then 4, then 3, and so on.

2. B

Explanation:

This is an alternating addition series, with a random number, 21, interpolated as every third number. The addition series alternates between adding 3 and adding 4. The number 21 appears after each number arrived at by adding 3.

3. D

Explanation:

Here is a simple addition series, which begins with 9 and adds 7.

4. B

Explanation:

This is a simple addition series, which begins with 2 and adds 6.

5. A

Explanation:

In this alternating repetition series, a random number, 33, is interpolated every third number into a simple addition series, in which each number increases by 2.

6. D

Explanation:

This is an alternating addition series with a random number, 4, interpolated as every third number. In the main series, 1 is added, then 2 is added, then 1, then 2, and so on.

7. D

Explanation:

This is an alternating subtraction series with repetition. There are two different patterns here. In the first, a number repeats itself; then 3 is added to that number to arrive at the next number, which also repeats. This gives the series 17, 17, 20, 20, 23, and so on. Every third number follows a second pattern, in which 3 is subtracted from each number to arrive at the next: 34, 31, 28.

8. D

Explanation:

This is an alternating addition and subtraction series. In the first pattern, 2 is added to each number to arrive at the next; in the alternate pattern, 6 is subtracted from each number to arrive at the next.

9. D

Explanation:

This is a simple addition series with a random number, 18, interpolated as every third number. In the series, 4 is added to each number except 18, to arrive at the next number.

10. B

Explanation:

This is a simple subtraction series in which a random number, 85, is interpolated as every third number. In the subtraction series, 10 is subtracted from each number to arrive at the next.
