Solutions:
1). d) Required no. of ways = 4C1 x 4C3 + 4C2 x 6C2 + 4C3 x 6C1 + 4C4
= 4 x [(6 x 5 x 4)/(1 x 2 x 3)] + [(4 x 3)/(1 x 2) x (6 x 5)/(1 x 2)] + [(4 x 3 x 2)/(1 x 2 x 3) x 6] + 1
= 80 + 90 + 24 + 1 = 195
2). c) Required no.of ways = 6C2 x 4C2 + 6C3 x 4C1 + 6C4
= [(6 x 5)/(1 x 2) x (4 x 3)/(1 x 2)] + [(6 x 5 x 4)/(1 x 2 x 3) x 4] + [(6 x 5 x 4 x 3)/(1 x 2 x 3 x 4)]
= 90 + 80 + 15 = 185
3). d) Let the average weight of the 59 students be A.
So the total weight of the 59 of them will be 59*A.
The questions states that when the weight of this student who left is added, the total weight of the class = 59A + 45
When this student is also included, the average weight decreases by 0.2 kgs
=> (59A + 45)/60 = A – 0.2
=> 59A + 45 = 60A - 12
=> 45 + 12 = 60A - 59A
=> A = 57
4). b) Suppose he bought 5 kg and 3 kg of tea.
Cost Price = Rs. (5 x 18 + 3 x 20) = Rs. 150.
Selling price = Rs. (8 x 21) = Rs. 168.
Profit = 168 - 150 = 18
So, Profit % = (18/150) x 100 = 12%
5). d) We can get the answer by subtracting work done by leak in one hour by subtraction of filling for 1 hour without leak and with leak, as
Work done for 1 hour without leak = 1/3
Work done with leak = 7/2; Work done with leak one hour = 2/7
Work done by leak in 1 hr = 1/3 – 2/7 = 1/21
So tank will be empty by the leak in 21 hours.
6). d) Man's Nephew maternal grandmother will be man's mother.
7). e) Bhavna is 25th from left end and Rakhi is 20th to left of Bhavna so Rakhi is 5th from left end and given 26th from right end, so total = (5+26) – 1 = 30
8). a) If G is ranked fifth, then A and B must be ranked 6th and 7th resp. This can only happen if D scores the highest.
9). d) The first three options are not possible.
10). d)
