(A)     The history of that system is, however, a warning than a stimulus to reorganise a similar scheme.
(B)     However, we can’t resign ourselves merely because there are not data.
(C)     One of the commonest risk which agricultural life is exposed to in this country is famine or failure of crops.

b)   B
c)   C
d)   D
e)   E

12). Which of the following should be the SIXTH sentence after rearrangement?

b)   D
c)   B
d)   C
e)   A

b)   C
c)   D
d)   E
e)   F

14). Which of the following should be the FIRST sentence after rearrangement?

b)   B
c)   D
d)   C
e)   E

15). Which of the following should be the SECOND sentence after rearrangement?
a)   B
b)   G
c)   D
d)   E
e)   F

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

Solutions:
1). c) By using the formulae B = [tu + td] / [tu – td] × R
15 km downstream in 18 min so 10 km in (18/15) × 10 = 12 min
B= 4x, R = x
Now
4x = [tu + 12] / [tu – 12] × x
Solve, tu = 20 min
2). b) It is given that 1/P + 1/Q = 2/15
Now, let P take x days and Q takes y days to complete half the work respectively.
x/P = 1/2, x = P/2 similarly y/Q = 1/2, y = Q/2
so, x +y = 20 i.e. P/2 + Q/2 = 20, P + Q = 40
solve both equation, u will get Q = 30 days
3). c) P=12000, T1=10 years, T2=3 years, R1=10%, R2=?
[(12000*10*5)/100 – (12000*R2*3)/100] = 3320
=> 50-3R2 = 83/3
=> R2 = 67/9%
4). d) Present age of Veena’s son = x
Veena’s present age = 3x
Veena’s present age = 2/5 of Father’s present age
Father’s present age = (15/2) x
Total present age = x + 3x + (15/2)x = 138 => x = 12
Difference between Veena’s father’s present age and Veena’s son’s present age = 90 – 12 = 78 years
5). b) Let initial expenditure is E per day. Now it is increased by 30 rupees per day,
Initial students = 50 and now 58,
E/50 – (E + 30)/58 = 2
Solve for E, We will get E = 912.5 rupee
