The team lost in a shootout, but holding world champion Australia goalless for 60 minutes was in itself commendable, given that no one except the players believed it could be done.

The process began with Spanish coach Jose Brasa and trainer Jesus Garcia Pallares in 2009 soon after the team missed the Olympic bus for the first time. Pallares was the man who brought science into training despite a very brief stay. It continued with David John who assisted Michael Nobbs and then Jason Konrath and now Matthew Eyles. Despite the exit of several coaches in this period, the team always had a good trainer to ensure that fitness did not suffer.

Solutions:
1. B)
5940 = (110/100)*cp1, cp1 = 5400
5940 = (90/100)*cp2, cp2 = 6600
So, CP = 5400 + 6600 = 12000
And selling price = 5940 + 5940 = 11880
% loss = (120/12000)*100 = 1
2. D)
Total sum not given
3. D)
The second car overtake the first car in x hours
Distance covered by the first car in x hours = Distance covered by the second car in x hours
10x = x/2[2a + (x-1)d] 10x = x/2[2*8 + (x-1)1/2] x = 40 -31 = 9hrs
4. A)
Total balls in A bag = 14, Total balls in A bag = 12
A bag = 1/2(8c1/14c1) = 2/7
B bag = 1/2(6c1/12c1) = 1/4 —> total Probability = 2/7 + 1/4 =15/28
5. B)
Let T is the time taken by the pipes to fill the tank
(1/12 + 1/18 + 1/24)*(T – 12) + (1/12 + 1/18)*12 = 1
We will get T = 108/13 = 8(4/13) hrs

Economy – st
Wealth – gh
Balance – ru
Nations – Zm
Better – dj
6. B) Either ‘of’ or ‘depleting’
