1729 â€“ 512 + 729 + 1889 = **3835**

**5) Answer: B)**

Â (âˆš4356 Ã— âˆš1296) Ã· âˆš1936 = ?

Â (66*36)/44=?

**Â 54=?**

**6) Answer: D)**

From 1

We canâ€™t find the length, because time taken to cross each other alone given.

From 2

We can find speed of the train

Let, speed of the train 1= s1, speed of the train 2 =s2

S1+s2=76, s1-s2=12

Thus s1= 44km/hr, s2=32km/hr

By merging these two statements we can find only total length.

Thus, length of the trains canâ€™t be determined by given data.

**7) Answer: E)**

From 1, we know discounted price only. So canâ€™t find the marked price.

From 2, by using given data we know that profit =120 and % of profit =20%

So cost price=120*100/20=600

And selling price=600+120=720

By merging these two statements we can find the marked price of the article.

Thus marked price of the article =720+200 = 920

**8) Answer: A)**

From 1 we can find the interest rate by using given data,

From given data,

N=2, A=15500Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â P=14000

SI=1500

W.k.t, SI=PNR/100

Thus statement 1 only sufficient to answer the questions

**9) Answer: E)**

From 1

Data given is L = 2aÂ Â and âˆš (lÂ²+bÂ²) = 10

From 2

Data given is, aâˆš2 = 4âˆš2

a=4

By merging 1 and 2 we can find the L and b separately and area of rectangle.

**10) Answer: E)**

From 1 and 2, we can find the average of four persons by using these two statements.

**11) Answer: D)**

2, 20, 150, 750, ?

The pattern is, *10, *7.5, *5, *2.5,â€¦

**Â ? should be 1875**

**14) Answer: C)**

The correct series is,

The correct series is,

256Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 128Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 32 Â Â Â Â Â Â **4**Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 0.25

The pattern is, Ã·2, Ã·4, Ã·8, Ã·16

**Directions (16 â€“ 20)**

**16) Answer: C)**

Speed of the taxi C= fare per hour/fare per km

= 600/12

= 50 km/hr

Â Thus, distance covered by taxi C = 8*50 = 400 km

**17) Answer: B)**

From given data

W.k.t, total time taken to cover 520 km with 40 km/hr speed=520/40=13 hrs

Fare per hour for taxi B = Rs. 800

Thus total fare have to be paid =13*800 = Rs.10400

**18) Answer: D)**

Total amount = (1500 + 4800 + 6400) = Rs.12700

**19) Answer: A)**

From given data

Fare per km for taxi A = 250/50 = 5 rupees per km

Arun has to pay after increase = (6*50)*(5+5) = Rs. 3000

**20) Answer: E)**

One hour travel expense by all three persons = (250+800+600) =1650

Thus total travel expense for 39 hours=39*1650 = Rs. 64350

X= -6/2, -5/2 = -3, -2.5

**II)** YÂ² +11Y +28 =0

YÂ² +7Y+4Y +28 =0

Y=-7, -4

X >Y

**26) Answer: C)**

Wkt, Distance=speed * time

Here distance = train length + platform length

So speed of the train A = (200+400)/25 = 24 m/s

Speed of the train B= (260+400)/30 = 22 m/s

Thus ratio of time taken to cross the pole = (200/2

**27) Answer: A)**

Ratio of profit of A and B

= > (75000*6 +80000*6+85000*6+90000*6) : (60000*6+65000*6+70000*6+75000*6)

= > 1980000 : 1620000 = 11 : 9

Thus profit share of A= 60000*(11/20) = Rs. 33000

**28) Answer: D)**

From given data A works for 5 hours.

Total time taken to fill the tank is X.

Thus total time taken to fill the tank

= > (5/24) + (x/48) = 1

Â = > X = 38 hrs

**29) Answer: A)**

(20 % – 15 %) of cost price = 3780

5 % of cost price = 3780

Cost price = 3780*(100/5) = Rs. 75600

**30) Answer: D)**

Ratio of cost price, selling price and marked price = 28 : 35 : 60

Discount % = [(60 – 35)/60]*100 = 41.67%

**31) Answer: C)**

Number of occupied seats = (9860/145) + (3680/115) = 100

**32) Answer: A)**

Total amount collected from theatre X = (70*95) + (80*70) = 12250

Total amount collected from Z = (70*125) + (80*120) = 18350

Thus required difference = 18350 â€“ 12250 = 6100

**33) Answer: B)**

Required ratio = 260 : 185 = 52 : 37

**34) Answer: D)**

Required percentage = (30/70)*100 = 42.85%

**35) Answer: E)**

Required ratio = (3x*140) : (x*125) = 84 : 25
