1).d  2).a  3).d  4).d  5).c  6).b  7).d  8).c  9).e  10).d 11).c 12).a 13).d 14).a 15).e

Solutions:
1). d) The sum of the ages of the 54 girls entered as error = 54 × 14 = 756.
Now, deduct the error i.e. 13 – 10.5 = 2.5
Then the actual sum of the ages = 756 – 2.5 = 753.5
So, the actual average = 753.5/54 = 13.95 years.

2). a) A => 1 work => 7 x 6 = 42 hrs
B => 1 work => 7 x 8 = 56 hrs
A + B => 1 hr work = 1/42 + 1/56 = 7/168 part
1 day of 8 hrs work = 7/168 x 8 = 7/21
Therefore No.of days = 21/7 = 3

3). d) 12m + 13b = 4893.75/3 = 1631.25
5m + 6b = 3562.50 = 712.5
Now, 12 x 6b – 13 x 5b = 12 x 712.5 – 5 x 1631.25
=> 7b = 393.75 => b = 56.25
Again, 5m + 6 x 56.25 = 712.5 => 5m = 375 => m = 75
Now, the required number of days = 4500/(3 x 75 + 4 x 56.25) = 4500/450 = 10

4). d) Speed of 1st train = 150/15 = 10 m/sec
Total length = 150 + 150 = 300
Total speed = Total distance/Tie = 300/12 = 25 m/sec
Speed of 2nd train = (25 – 10) = 15 m/sec = 15 x 18/2 km/hr = 54 km/hr.

5). c) Present age of Ram = [(4 x 5) x (5 x 5 – 6 x 4)] x (6 – 5) = 20/(24-24) = 20 years

6). b) W + T => W is the sister of T
T ÷ R => T is the father of R
R x M => R is the brother of M
Therefore, W is the parental aunt of M.

7). d) D – J => D is mother of J
J + M => J is the sister of M
M ÷ K => M is father of K
Therefore, K is the grandson or granddaughter of D

8). c) M + J => M is sister of J
J ÷ T => J is the father of T
T x R => T is the brother of R
Therefore, R is the niece or nephew of M

9). e) J x M => J is the brother of M
M ÷ F => M is father of F
F x T => F is the brother of T
So gender of T is not clear.

10). d) B x M => B is brother of M
M ÷ H => M is the father of H
Therefore, B x M ÷ H => B is the paternal uncle of H
