69.Find the area of Rhombus one of whose diagonals measures 8 cm and the other 10 cm.
A. 47 cm2     B. 34cm2    C. 40 cm2    D. 64cm2

70. Rs 5000 was divided among 5 men, 6 women and 5 boys, such that the ratio of the shares of men, women and boys is 5:3:2 what is the share of the boy?
a. 200    b. 100    c. 250     d. 150
Ans: 200
The ratio of shares of groups of men, women and boys = 5 :3 :2
So share of boys is = (2/10)*5000 = 1000
Share of a boy= 1000/5 = 200

71. If 28 Men working 6 hours a day can finish a work in 15 days. In how many days can 21 men working 8 hours per day will finish the same work?
a. 24 days   b. 21 days  c. 18 days   d. 15 days
Ans: 15 days
Work = 28 * 6 * 15 — (1)
Work = 21 * 8 * x  — – (2)
Equating (1) and (2)
28 * 6 * 15 = 21 * 8 * x
X= 15

72. A train is running at the rate of 60 kmph. A man is also going in the same direction on a track parallel to the rails at a speed of 45 kmph. If the train crosses man in 48 seconds, the length of the train is?
a. 50m   b.  150m c. 100m  d. 200m
Ans: 200 m
Speed = distance/time;
Distance= speed * time
= (60-45) * 48 * ( 5/18)    ( relative speed in same direction is s1-s2 and kmph to m/sec 5/18)
= 200m

73. Find the last two digits of the expansion (212n-64n) when n is a positive integer?
a. 5   b. 11   c. 10   d. 00
Ans: 00
Assume n=1

74. Read the information given below and answer the questions that follow
(a\$b) = (a+b)/2
(a&b) = (a2-b2)
(a?b)=(a-b)/2
What is the value of [(22\$4)&(25?15)]?
a.       154   b. 144   c. 112   d. 125

Ans: 144
75. Which of the following graph indicates the graph of {(sin t, cos t):- π/2≤t≤0} in xy-plane?

a.       D   b. C   c. B   d. A
Ans:  B
When t = -90 then (sin t, cos t) = (-1,0)
When t=0 then (sin t, cos t) = (0,1)
Plot above two points in x-y plane.

Ans:  B
When t = -90 then (sin t, cos t) = (-1,0)
When t=0 then (sin t, cos t) = (0,1)
Plot above two points in x-y plane.

76. There are 4 boys and 3 girls. They sit in a row randomly, what is the probability  that all the girls are together?
a. 1/14    b. 3/14   c. 2/14   d. 5/14
Ans: 2/14
Probablity = (favourable cases / total cases)
Favourable cases = girls together.
= 4 boys + 1 ( assume 3 girls as 1 ) = 5! * 3! ( girls can be arranged in 3! Ways)
Total cases = 7!
So probability= (5! * 3!)/7! = 1/7

77. The simple interest on Rs. 4,500 for 4 years at 15% p.a is:
a. Rs. 2700   b.Rs. 2500   c. Rs. 2300   d. Rs. 3000
Ans: 2700
Simple interest = (P * T * R )/ 100
Ans: 2700

78.  A rectangular grassy plot is 112 m by 78 m. It has a gravel path 2.5 m m wide all around it on the inside. Find the area of the path
a. 952 m2   b. 926 m2  c. 912 m2    d.950 m2
Ans: 925 m2

This question is very very important

Area of the path = (112*78) – (73 * 107) = 925m2

79. A cone of height 21 cm has a volume of 2200 cm3. Determine the base radius of the cone
a. 2.5 cm   b. 10 cm  c. 7.5 cm  d. 5 cm
Ans: 10 cm
Volume of cone = (1/3) Pi * r2 * h  = 2200
r=10 cm

80.  what is the radius of the circular plate of thickness 1cm made by melting a sphere of radius 3cm?
A. 6 cm    B. 5 cm  C . 4 cm  D.7 cm
Ans: 6 cm
Volume of a sphere = (4/3) * pi * r3    –(1)  ( here r =3cm)
Volume of circular plate of thickness 1 cm is  = pi * r2 * h    — (2)  ( here h=1cm that is thickness )
Equating (1) and (2)
r=6cm
