1. Find the odd no: 2,3,12,36,86,167
Sol:  given series. 2,3,12,36,86,167
now,  3-2=1 => 1^2=1;                   12-3=9 => 3^2=9;
36-12=24 => here if we change 36 into 37 then 37-12=25 =>5^2=25
86-36=50 => Similary 86-37=49 =>7^2=49
167-86=81 =>9^2=81

2.   8,12,24,60,… what is the next number?
Sol:  12-8=4;                        24-12=12;            60-24=36…
the difference like this 4*3=12,12*3=36 then next 36*3=108.so the answer is 108+60=168.

3. 3,7,10,11,12,17,? find out next number?
Sol:   sum of alternates -1 equal to next alternate number.
3+10-1=12;                          7+11-1=17;                          so the next number will be 10+12-1=21

4. Cost price of 4 calculators and 2 pencil is 6200. What is the cost of ten calculators and five pencils.
Sol: C+2P=6200–>2C+P=3100

5. 12 men can complete work in 6 days whereas 10 men and 21 women take 3 days to finish the same work .in how many days can 12 women alone complete.
Sol:  10 men’s, 1 day work=10/(12*6)=5/36
If 21 women’s, 1 day work= 21/W ,then
3[(5/36)+(21/W)]= 1 ,On solving, W=108
So, 12 women can complete the work in 108/12=9 days

6. 2718/14  find the remainder value?
Sol: Any number of the form (a*x-1)^n /a the remainder will be +1 if the power n is even.
and the remainder will be -1 or (a-1) if the power is odd. According to this the remainder will be 1

7. What is the probability of getting a odd sum when two dice are thrown.
Sol: odd numbers 3,5,7,9,11(between 2(min sum)-12(max sum))
cases:-  3-(1,2),(2,1)                                        5-(3,2),(2,3),(4,1),(1,4)                   7-(1,6),(6,1),(2,5),(5,2),(3,4),(4,3)
9-(3,6),(4,5),(5,4),(6,3)                                   11-(5,6),(6,5)
total cases=18                                   therefore probability=18/36=>1/2

8. If log(p+q)(p-q)= -1;                   then find the value of: log(p+q)(P2-q2)
Sol: log(p+q)(p2-q2)=log(p+q)2(p-q)=log(p+q)2  + log(p-q) = 2 log(p+q) + log(p-q) = log(p+q)+log(p+q)+log(p-q)
log(p+q)-1= log(p+q)-log 10= log (p+q)/10;

9. If peacock = 11526312316 then feather=

Ans: 21526201959

10. Find the number of consecutive zeros at the end of 72!
Sol: By using formula round(n/5)+round(n/25)+……….round(n/5^n)
round(72/5)+round(72/25)=14+2=16
11. Find the maximum value of n such that 77! is perfectly divisible by 720^n
Sol: 720 = (2^4) x (3^2) x (5)
Number of twos in 77! is:             38 + 19 + 9 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 73
So number of 2^4 will be: = 18
Similarly, Number of threes in 77! is:
25 + 8 + 2 = 35
So number of 3^2 will be: = 17
and number of fives will be:
= 15 + 3 = 18
Hence the number of 720s that we can obtain is 17.

12. Some persons can do a piece of work in 12 days. Two times the number of such persons will do half of that work in:

20. Four bells begin to toll together and then each one at intervals of 6 s, 7 s, 8 s and 9 s respectively. The
number of times they will toll together in the next 2 hr is:
Sol: lcm of 6,7,8,9=504 sec;                                          in 2 hrs =3600*2 sec
so no times they will ring =3600*2/504==14 times
21. The students are in the ratio 2:3:5.if 20 students are increased in each batch the ratio changes to 4:5:7
The total number of students in the three batches before the increase was
Sol: Let number of students be x
2x+20 : 3x+20 : 5x+20 = 4:5:7 –> x = 10
Initially the number of the students would be 20,30 and 50 –> 100 ans

22. sum of money doubles itself in 9 years, in how many years it will become 8 times itself?
Sol: 27 years;                                      9yrs = 2(sum);                   18yrs = 4(sum);                 27yrs = 8(sum)

23. What is the smallest four-digit number which when divided by 6, leaves a remainder of 5 and when
divided by 5 leaves a remainder of 3?
1. 1043                  2. 1073                  3. 1103                  4.None of these
Sol: ans is none of these because :
let us assume the smallest 4 digit number be 1000 if we divide it with 6 we get remainder 4 so to get a rem of 5 add 1 to it => 1001.
Then the general form of a number is 1001+6k for every positive integer value of k it always yields rem 5 when divided by 6
then by trail and error if we take k=2 then number is 1013
which when divided by 5 gives a rem of 3
so the right ans is 1013 which is none of these from options

24. A, B, C started a business with their investments in the ratio 1:3:5. After 4 months, A invested the double  amount as before and B as well as C withdrew half of their investments. The ratio of their profits at the end of the year is:
Sol: Let their initial investments be x, 3x and 5x respectively. Then,
A : B : C = (x * 4 + 2x * 8) : (3x * 4 + 3x/2 * 8 ) : (5x * 4 + 5x/2 * 8)
= 20x : 24x : 40x = 5 : 6 : 10.

65. A ,B, C are three students who attend the same tutorial classes. If the Probability that on a particular day exactly one out of A and B attend the class is 7/10,Exactly one out of B and C attends is 4/10 exactly one out of A and C attends is 7/10.if the probability that all the three attend the class is 9/100 then find the probability that all at least one attends the class.
Sol: Probability(at least one attending ) = 1- Probability(none attending)
Let the Probability of A,B,C attending the class be a,b,c
So not attending will be 1-a,1-b,1-c
Exactly one of A,B
a(1-b) + b(1-a) = 7/10
a+b -2ab =7/10

B,C
b(1-c)+c(1-b) = 4/10
b+c -2bc =4/10

C,A
a(1-c) + c(1-a) =7/10
c+a -2ac=7/10

2(a+b+c) – 2(ab+bc+ca) = 18/10
a+b+c -ab -bc-ca =9/10

P(atleast one ) = 1 – P(none)
1 – [ (1-a)(1-b)(1-c)]
1- [ 1 -a -b-c+ab+bc+ca -abc]
1-[1 – (9/10 + 9/100)]
= 99/100

194. x sells to article for 4000 each with no loss and no gain in the interaction. If one was sold at a gain of 25% and other at sola at a loss of?
a) 25%   b) 18 2/9              c) 20%   d) 16 2/3
Sol: d)16 2/3%
Explanation:
according to the question each item is sold for rs 4000.So the total selling price of the items is (4000+4000=8000).Since,there is no loss or gain in the entire process
then the total cost price will be equal to the total cost price i.e. 8000.
Now,since the 1st item is sold at a gain of 25% that means its c.p. is given by:
{(4000-c.p.)/c.p.}*100=25 which gives c.p. of 1st item i.e. 3200.since,the total c.p. is 8000 the c.p of the 2nd item is 8000-3200=4800 and the s.p. of 2nd item is 4000 hence the 2nd item is sold at the loss of {(4800-4000)/4800}*100=16 2/3%

197. If 9×2+3px+6q when divide by 3x+1 leaves a remainder -3/4 and qx2+4px+7 is exactly divisible by x+1, then the values of p and q respectively will be:
Sol: Ans : p = 7/4, q = 0
Given 9x^2+3px+6q % 3x+1 = -3/4
ie 3x+1 => x = -1/3
|9 3p 6q
-1/3| -3 1-p
******************
9 3p-3 6q+1-p
6q+1-p=-3/4 –> (1)
Similarly qx2+4px+7 is exactly divisible by x+1
means qx2+4px+7 % x+1 = 0
ie x+1 => x= -1
| q 4p 7
-1| -q q-4p
******************
q 4p-q 7+q-4p
7+q-4p = 0
q = 4p – 7 –>(2)
sub q=4p-7 in eq(1)
6q+1-p=-3/4
24p-42+1-p=-3/4
23p = 161/4 => p=161/(23*4)
p=7/4
sub p=7/4 in eq(2)
q=(4*7/4)-7
q=0
Hence p=7/4, q=0

199. A = 1^1 * 2^2 * 3^3 * 4^4 * 5^5 * ……..10^10. How many zeroes will be there at the end of A ?

Sol: 10^10 —> gives 10 zeros
2*5 = 10
Here in question there are five 5’s ( 5^5)
and more then five 2’s ( 2^2, 4^4,6^6…)
So we get five more 10’s from 2^5*5^5
{ 2^5*5^5 = (2*5)*(2*5)*(2*5)*(2*5)*(2*5)=10*10*10*10*10 = 10^5)
thus there is a total of 15 zeros in the answer.
