ENGLISH
Direction (11-15): Read each sentence to find out whether there is any error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. The number of that part is the answer, if there is no error, the answer is ‘e’ (Ignore errors of punctuation, if any).

Solutions:
1). d)
L.C.M of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 is 120.
So, the bells will toll together after 120 seconds i.e. 2 minutes .
In 30 minutes the bells toll together 30/2 + 1 times i.e. 16 times.

2).c)
Given 9M + 12B = 1/12; 12M + 12B = 1/10
Solving the above equations M = 1/180 and B = 1/360
Then 10M + 10B = 10/180 + 10/360 = (2 + 1)/36 = 3/36 = 1/12
So, 10 men and 10 boys finish the job in 12 days

3). d)
Suppose Sham joined after X months, Then sham's money remained for (12 - x) months.
Therefore 2100 x 12 = 3600 x (12 – x) => x = 12 – 7 = 5
So, Sham joined after 5 months.

4). d)
=> 3000 * 80/100  * (100-X)/100 = 2208
=> X = 8%

5). a)
Total quantity of water = 2/3 × 12 + 3/5 × 15 + 7/10 × 20 = 31
Total quantity of alcohol = 1/3 × 12 + 2/5 × 15 × 20 = 16
alcohol : water = 16 : 31

(6 – 10):
6). c)
7). d)
8). b)
9). e)
10). a)

Directions (Q. 11-15):
11). a) The article ‘the’ is used before physical place (position) like ‘top’, ‘bottom’ etc. So, we say ‘the top’, ‘the bottom’. Now, it is clear that, the error is in part (a) of the given sentence. Here, ‘a top’ should be replaced with ‘the top’.

12). e)
