7). Total
no. of Officers
= 2000 + 15000 + 17000 + 3500 + 14900 + 11360
+ 9000 = 72760
Total no. of Clerks = 17650 + 15300 + 11000 =

Answer: d)
11). (12/17)
× (25/100) × 1020 = 120 + ?
=> 180 = 120 + ?
=> ? = 180 – 120 = 60
Answer: a)
12). 3942
= ? + 1203
=> ? = 3942 – 1203 = 2739
Answer: e)
13). [(25
× 26)/13] – 9
= ? – 16
=> 41 = ? – 16
=> ? = 41 + 16 = 57
Answer: b)
14). √(270
+ 150 + 21) = ?^{2}
=> √441 = ?^{2} => ?^{2} =
21
=> ? = √21
Answer: b)
15). 7^{2} ×
(7^{2}) = 7^{?} × 7^{3}
=> [(7^{2} × 7^{4}) /
7^{3}] = 7^{?} => 7^{3} => 7^{?} =>
? = 3
Answer: b)
16). [(420
× 36) / 100] – [(350 × 56) / 100]
= ? – 94
=> 151.2 – 196 = ? – 94
=> ? = 151.2 + 94 – 196 = 49.2
Answer: b)
17). ?
= 540 × (75/100) × (7/5) × (2/3) = 378
Answer: a)
18). (√3^{2})^{3} ×
(√3^{4})^{5} ÷ (3^{2})^{2} = 3^{?}
=> 3^{3} × 3^{2×5} ÷
3^{6} = 3^{?}
=> 3^{3 + 10 6} = 3^{?}
=> 3^{7} = 3^{?}
=> ? = 7
Answer: c)
19). ?
= 36 × 15 – [(56×784)/112]
= 540 – 392 = 148
Answer: e)
20). 28.314
– 31.427 + 113.928
= ? + 29.114
=> 110.815 = ? + 29.114
=> ? = 110.815 – 29.114
= 81.701
Answer: d)
21). Let
the sum be x and original rate y% p.a
∴ new rate = (y + 5)%
{[x(y + 5) × 5] / 100} – {[x(y) × 5] / 100} =
500
=> ((xy + 5x) / 20) – (xy / 20) = 500
=> 5x / 20 = 500
∴ x = 500 × 4 = 2000
Answer: a)
22). Difference
= 16000 × (5 / 100)^{2}
= 16000 × [25 / (100 × 100)] = (16000 / 400)
= 40
Answer: d)
23). Khalid
covers in 2 hrs 15 min the distance of 60 × (9 / 4) = 135 km
Remaining distance = 285 – 135 = 150 km
Time taken to cover this distance = 150 / 40
= 3hrs 45 min
So, Khalid reaches at Kanpur = 9.30 + 2.15 +
3.45 = 3.30 pm
Answer: a)
24). A
week has 7 days and a day has 24 hrs divided into two equal rounds of 12 hrs
each.
So, the required no. = 7 × 2 × (1 + 2 + 3 + ….
+ 12)
= (7 × 2 × 12 × 13) / 2 = 1092
Answer: a)
25). Distance
= [(60 × 60) / (60 – 20)] × (50 / 60) = 25 km
Answer: e)
26). Required
ratio = (45 × 36) / (55 × 68) = 81 : 187
Answer: c)
27). R + S = S + M + 15
R – M =
15
…(i)
And, (R + S + M) / 3 = (R + S) / 2
Or, 3R + 3S = 2R + 2S + 2M
∴ M = (R + S) /
2
…(ii)
Putting (ii) in (i),
R – [(R + S) / 2] = 15
R – S = 30
Answer: b)
28). Time
taken by the leak to empty a full tank
= xy / (y – x) = [2 × (5 / 2)] / [(5 / 2) –
2] = 10 hrs
Answer: d)
29). 8 pen + 5 pc = 25 × 13 = 325
4 pen + 7 pc = 21 × 11 = 231
:. 12 pen + 12 pc = 556
:. Total cost of 18 pens and 18 pencils = 556
× (3/2) = Rs. 834

Answer: a)
31). Let
the speed of the slower motorcyclist be x km/hr. Therefore the speed of the
faster motorcyclist will be (x + 5 ) km/hr.
In 2 hrs both motorcyclists cover
2x + 2(x+5) = (4x + 10) km distance.
i.e 4x + 10 = 220  30
or, 4x= 180 or, x=45
Ratio = 50 : 45 = 10 : 9
Answer: c)
32). Let
original area plouged daily = x hectares
Total area plouged = 16x
If(x + 18) hectares is plouged daily, then
total area = 10(x+18)
Given that, 16x= 10(x + 18)
Or, x=30 hectares
∴ Total area of field = 16 × 30 = 480
hectares
Answer: a)
33). Net
profit on the article
= + 20 – 15 (20×15/100) = +2%
Selling price of the article = 425 × 1.02
= Rs. 433.50
Answer: e)
34). By
method of Alligation:
Ratio = 70/12 = 35.6
For each part of liquid I, 6/35 part of
liquid II should be added. So for 700 ml of liquid I, 120ml of liquid II should
be added.
Answer: d)
35). In
the adjacent figure,
PQ= length of the building
RM= length of the ladder,
Given RM = 12 m, PM = 8m and
In ∆PQR
Tan 60° = [(8 + MQ) / RQ] or, RQ= [(8+MQ) / √3]
In ∆MQR
(RM)² = (MQ)² + (RQ)²
Or, (12)² = (MQ)² + [(8+MQ) / √3]^{2}
or, MQ ≈ 8m
Height of the building = PM + MQ = 8 + 8=16m
