If logx (0.1) = -1/3, then the value of x is:

Option 1 : 10

Option 2 : 100

Option 3 : 1000

Option 4 : 1/1000

log x(0.1) = -1/3

x^(-1/3) = 0.1

x = (0.1)^(-3)

x = 1/(0.1^3)

x = 1/0.001

x = 1000

Ques. X and Y are two independent events. The probability that X and Y occur is 1/12, and the probability that neither occur is 1/2, the probability of occurrence of X can be:

Option 1 : 1/3

Option 2 : 1/5

Option 3 : 1/2

Option 4 : 1/10

P(X).P(Y)=1/12

And, (1-P(X))(1-P(Y))=1/2

Solving both, we get, P(X)=1/3

Ques. Three numbers are chosen from 1 to 30 randomly. The probability that they are not consecutive is:

Option 1 : 1/145

Option 2 : 144/145

Option 3 : 139/140

Option 4 : 1/140

Ways of selecting 3 consecutive number from 1 to 30

is 28

Ways of selecting 3 number from 1 to 30 is 30c3

Probabilty that they are not consecutive is 1-(28/

(30C3)) = 1/145

Ques. A bag is full of 20 bananas and no other fruit. Rajeev draws a fruit from the bag. What is the probability that he will draw a banana?

Option 1 : 1

Option 2 : 0

Option 3 : 1/2

Option 4 : None of these

No other fruit present, than he will always draw a

banana, so Probability is 1

Ques. An unbiased dice is rolled 5 times and the outcomes are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively. If it is rolled again, what is the probability that the outcome is 6?

Option 1 : 1

Option 2 : 5/6

Option 3 : 1/6

Option 4 : None of these

Probability of any number in dice roll is 1/6

Ques. The probability of drawing an apple from a bag of fruits is 6/25. How many apples should Ravi draw, so that there is a chance he will draw 12 apples on average?

Option 1 : 25

Option 2 : 50

Option 3 : 12

Option 4 : None of these

25 draws -> 6 apples

50 draws -> 12 apples

Option 3 : 1/3

Option 4 : None of these

Probability of coin being blue -> 1/2

Ans:- (1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = 1/8

(1/2)(1/2)(1/2) = 1/8

Ques. The probability of occurrence of event A is 0.3 and that of event B is 0.4. The events are independent. What is the probability of occurrence of both A and B?

Option 1 : 0.7

Option 2 : 0.1

Option 3 : 0.12

Option 4 : Cannot be determined

For independent events

P(AUB) = P(A) * P(B) = 0.12

Option 1 : 0.85

Option 2 : 0.75

Option 3 : 0

Option 4 : Cannot be determined

P(A or B) = P(A) + P(B) = 0.85

Ques. Padam purchased 30 kg of rice at the rate of 17.50 per kg and another 30 kg rice at a certain rate. He mixed the two and sold the entire quantity at the rate of Rs. 18.60 per kg and made 20% overall profit. At what price per kg did he purchase the lot

Option 1 : Rs.12.50

Option 2 : Rs. 13.50

Option 3 : Rs. 14.50

Option 4 : Rs. 15.50

20% profit means 1.2*Cost-Price = 18.60 * 60(kg)

1.2(17.5*30 + x*30) = 18.60 * 60

x= 14.5

a) Decrease by 20%

b)increase by 20%

c)increase by 10%

d)decrease by 10%

Let c.p=100 so,marked price=75

Final price=120% of 75=90

hence,decrease in price=100-90=10

op(d). decrease by 10%.

Ques. Bullcart A cover a certain distance at the speed of 15 km/hr, another bullcart B covers the same distance at the speed of 16 km/hr. If Bull cart A takes 16 minutes longer than B to cover the same distance find the distance?

distance travelled by

A

d=15*(t+16/60)

distance travelled by B

d=16*t

so t=d/16

now putting in A

d=64

so ans is 64km
