Question 1 of 10
1. Question
Application sums
The ratio of time taken by a boat to cover (x + 4) km in upstream to that of time taken to cover (x + 20) km in still water is 4: 5. If the ratio of speed of boat in downstream to that of stream is 5: 1 and the sum of time taken by the boat to cover (x – 5) km in upstream to that in downstream is 8 hours then find the speed of boat in downstream?
Correct
Answer: d)
Let the downstream speed be 5p and speed of stream be p
Then speed of boat in still water will be 5p – p = 4p
And speed of boat in upstream will be 4p – p = 3p
Time taken to cover (x + 4) km in upstream = (x + 4)/3p
And time taken to cover (x + 20) km in still water = (x + 20)/4p
{(x + 4)/3p}: {(x + 20)/4p} = 4: 5
{(x + 4)}/{(3x + 60)} = 1/5
5x + 20 = 3x + 60
x = 20
Also,
The sum of time taken by the boat to cover (x – 5) km in upstream to that in downstream is 8 hours.
(x – 5) = 20 – 5 = 15 km
15/3p + 15/5p = 8
5/p + 3/p = 8
8/p = 8
p = 1 km/hr
The speed of boat in downstream = 5p = 5 * 1 = 5 km/hr
Incorrect
Answer: d)
Let the downstream speed be 5p and speed of stream be p
Then speed of boat in still water will be 5p – p = 4p
And speed of boat in upstream will be 4p – p = 3p
Time taken to cover (x + 4) km in upstream = (x + 4)/3p
And time taken to cover (x + 20) km in still water = (x + 20)/4p
{(x + 4)/3p}: {(x + 20)/4p} = 4: 5
{(x + 4)}/{(3x + 60)} = 1/5
5x + 20 = 3x + 60
x = 20
Also,
The sum of time taken by the boat to cover (x – 5) km in upstream to that in downstream is 8 hours.
(x – 5) = 20 – 5 = 15 km
15/3p + 15/5p = 8
5/p + 3/p = 8
8/p = 8
p = 1 km/hr
The speed of boat in downstream = 5p = 5 * 1 = 5 km/hr

2. Question
Application sums
There are 5 red bikes, “x” blue bikes and “y” black bikes in a showroom. The probability that a blue bike is selected for test drive is 7/24 while the probability that a black bike is selected for test drive is ½. Find the value of (x – y + x * y).
Correct
Answer: b)
ATQ,
Probability of a blue bike is selected for test drive = x/(5 + x + y) = 7/24
24x = 35 + 7x + 7y
17x – 7y = 35 (equation 1)
Also,
Probability that a black bike is selected for test drive = y/(5 + x + y) = ½
2y = 5 + x + y
x = y – 5
Putting x = y – 5 in equation 1
17(y – 5) – 7y = 35
17y – 85 – 7y = 35
10y = 120
y = 12 and x = 12 – 5 = 7
(x – y + x * y) = 7 – 12 + 7 * 12 = – 5 + 84 = 79
Incorrect
Answer: b)
ATQ,
Probability of a blue bike is selected for test drive = x/(5 + x + y) = 7/24
24x = 35 + 7x + 7y
17x – 7y = 35 (equation 1)
Also,
Probability that a black bike is selected for test drive = y/(5 + x + y) = ½
2y = 5 + x + y
x = y – 5
Putting x = y – 5 in equation 1
17(y – 5) – 7y = 35
17y – 85 – 7y = 35
10y = 120
y = 12 and x = 12 – 5 = 7
(x – y + x * y) = 7 – 12 + 7 * 12 = – 5 + 84 = 79
Question 3 of 10
3. Question
Application sums
There are two containers P and Q. P contains 56 kg of salt and Q contains 36 kg of sugar. From P 24 kg of salt is taken out and poured into Q. Then 20kg of the mixture from Q is taken out and poured into P. Find the ratio of final quantity of salt to sugar in container P.
Correct
Answer: a)
Initially, the Amount of sugar in Q = 36kg
Now, 24kg of salt is poured in Q,
Total quantity in Q becomes = 36kg (sugar) + 24kg (salt) = 60kg (mixture)
The ratio of salt to sugar in Q becomes = 24: 36 = 2: 3
Again, 20kg of the mixture is taken out from Q and poured into P
Therefore, quantity of salt and sugar in P becomes
= {(56 – 24) + 20 * (2/5)} kg of salt + 20 * (3/5) kg of sugar
= (32 + 8) kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
= 40 kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
Required ratio = (40/12) = (10/3)
Incorrect
Answer: a)
Initially, the Amount of sugar in Q = 36kg
Now, 24kg of salt is poured in Q,
Total quantity in Q becomes = 36kg (sugar) + 24kg (salt) = 60kg (mixture)
The ratio of salt to sugar in Q becomes = 24: 36 = 2: 3
Again, 20kg of the mixture is taken out from Q and poured into P
Therefore, quantity of salt and sugar in P becomes
= {(56 – 24) + 20 * (2/5)} kg of salt + 20 * (3/5) kg of sugar
= (32 + 8) kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
= 40 kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
Required ratio = (40/12) = (10/3)

4. Question
Application sums
A train X running at the speed of 126 km/hr crosses a man running at 18 km/hr in opposite direction in 12 seconds and crosses a platform ‘’A’’ in 20 seconds. Find the time taken by train Y running at 99 km/hr to cross the platform ‘’B’’. The length of the platform ‘’B’’ is 70 m more than the length of the platform “A” and the length of train Y is equal to the length of train “X”.
Correct
Answer: b)
Let the length of train X = x meter
Relative speed of train and man when running in opposite direction = 126 + 18
= 144km/hr = 144 * (5/18) = 40 m/s
ATQ,
40 = x/12
x = 480 m
Let the length of the platform “A” = P_{1 }
126 * (5/18) = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
35 = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
P_{1 }+ 480 = 700
P_{1 }= 220m
The length of platform “B” = P_{2} = 220 + 70 = 290
Speed of train Y = 99 km/hr = 99 * (5/18) = 27.5 m/s
Time taken by train Y to cross the platform B = (480 + 290)/27.5
= (770)/27.5 = 28 seconds
Incorrect
Answer: b)
Let the length of train X = x meter
Relative speed of train and man when running in opposite direction = 126 + 18
= 144km/hr = 144 * (5/18) = 40 m/s
ATQ,
40 = x/12
x = 480 m
Let the length of the platform “A” = P_{1 }
126 * (5/18) = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
35 = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
P_{1 }+ 480 = 700
P_{1 }= 220m
The length of platform “B” = P_{2} = 220 + 70 = 290
Speed of train Y = 99 km/hr = 99 * (5/18) = 27.5 m/s
Time taken by train Y to cross the platform B = (480 + 290)/27.5
= (770)/27.5 = 28 seconds
Question 5 of 10
5. Question
Application sums
A, B, and C together can complete a piece of work in 25 days. A and C together can complete 30% of the work in 12 days and B and C together can complete 75% of the work in 33 days. A is 50% more efficient than C. In how many days (approximate integer value) B alone can complete the whole work?
Correct
Answer: c)
Therefore, work of A, B, and C together in one day = 1/25
A and C together can complete 30% of the work in 12 days
100% work will be done in (2/5)*100 = 40 days
Work by A and C together in one day = 1/40
Since A is 50% more efficient than C
Let per day work done by C = x and per day work done by A will be = 150% of x = (150/100)*x = 1.5x
x + 1.5x = 1/40
2.5x = 1/40
x = 1/100
Therefore per day one done by C = 1/100 and
Per day work done by A = 1.5*(1/100) = 1.5/100 = 3/200
Also,
B and C together can complete 75% of the work in 33 days
100% work will be completed in (33/75)*100 = 44 days
Work done by B and C in one day = 1/44
Let the one day work done by B = x
Therefore,
x + 1/100 = 1/44
x = 1/44 – 1/100
x = 7/550
Therefore, days taken by B alone to complete the work = 550/7 = 78.57 (79 approx)
Incorrect
Answer: c)
Therefore, work of A, B, and C together in one day = 1/25
A and C together can complete 30% of the work in 12 days
100% work will be done in (2/5)*100 = 40 days
Work by A and C together in one day = 1/40
Since A is 50% more efficient than C
Let per day work done by C = x and per day work done by A will be = 150% of x = (150/100)*x = 1.5x
x + 1.5x = 1/40
2.5x = 1/40
x = 1/100
Therefore per day one done by C = 1/100 and
Per day work done by A = 1.5*(1/100) = 1.5/100 = 3/200
Also,
B and C together can complete 75% of the work in 33 days
100% work will be completed in (33/75)*100 = 44 days
Work done by B and C in one day = 1/44
Let the one day work done by B = x
Therefore,
x + 1/100 = 1/44
x = 1/44 – 1/100
x = 7/550
Therefore, days taken by B alone to complete the work = 550/7 = 78.57 (79 approx)

If the ratio of number of attempted questions by student E in Quant, Reasoning and English is 6: 4: 5 respectively and total marks obtained by him in the test is 147, then how many did he left un-attempted in the test?
Correct
Answer: b)
Let number of questions attempted by E in Quant, Reasoning and English is ‘6x’, ‘4x’ and ‘5x’ respectively.
Total un-attempted questions by E = 100 – (6x + 4x + 5x) = (100 – 15x)
Normalized marks in Reasoning = [5 * 2.5x – 2 * 1.5x – 0.5 * (35 – 4x)]
= (11.5x – 17.5)
Normalized marks in English = [5 * 3.75x – 2 * 1.25x – 0.5 * (30 – 5x)]
= (18.75x – 15)
Total marks in the test = (19x – 17.5) + (11.5x – 17.5) + (18.75x – 15) = 147
49.25x = 147 + 50
x = 4
Total un-attempted questions by E = (100 – 15x) = 40

Answers :
Directions (1-5) :
1) Answer: d)
Let the downstream speed be 5p and speed of stream be p
Then speed of boat in still water will be 5p – p = 4p
And speed of boat in upstream will be 4p – p = 3p
Time taken to cover (x + 4) km in upstream = (x + 4)/3p
And time taken to cover (x + 20) km in still water = (x + 20)/4p
{(x + 4)/3p}: {(x + 20)/4p} = 4: 5
{(x + 4)}/{(3x + 60)} = 1/5
5x + 20 = 3x + 60
x = 20
Also,
The sum of time taken by the boat to cover (x – 5) km in upstream to that in downstream is 8 hours.
(x – 5) = 20 – 5 = 15 km
15/3p + 15/5p = 8
5/p + 3/p = 8
8/p = 8
p = 1 km/hr
The speed of boat in downstream = 5p = 5 * 1 = 5 km/hr

17x – 7y = 35 (equation 1)
Also,
Probability that a black bike is selected for test drive = y/(5 + x + y) = ½
2y = 5 + x + y
x = y – 5
Putting x = y – 5 in equation 1
17(y – 5) – 7y = 35
17y – 85 – 7y = 35
10y = 120
y = 12 and x = 12 – 5 = 7
(x – y + x * y) = 7 – 12 + 7 * 12 = – 5 + 84 = 79
3) Answer: a)
Initially, the Amount of sugar in Q = 36kg
Now, 24kg of salt is poured in Q,
Total quantity in Q becomes = 36kg (sugar) + 24kg (salt) = 60kg (mixture)
The ratio of salt to sugar in Q becomes = 24: 36 = 2: 3
Again, 20kg of the mixture is taken out from Q and poured into P
Therefore, quantity of salt and sugar in P becomes
= {(56 – 24) + 20 * (2/5)} kg of salt + 20 * (3/5) kg of sugar
= (32 + 8) kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
= 40 kg of salt + 12 kg of sugar
Required ratio = (40/12) = (10/3)
4) Answer: b)
Let the length of train X = x meter
Relative speed of train and man when running in opposite direction = 126 + 18
= 144km/hr = 144 * (5/18) = 40 m/s
ATQ,
40 = x/12
x = 480 m
Let the length of the platform “A” = P_{1 }
126 * (5/18) = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
35 = (P_{1 }+ 480)/20
P_{1 }+ 480 = 700
P_{1 }= 220m
The length of platform “B” = P_{2} = 220 + 70 = 290
Speed of train Y = 99 km/hr = 99 * (5/18) = 27.5 m/s
Time taken by train Y to cross the platform B = (480 + 290)/27.5
= (770)/27.5 = 28 seconds
5) Answer: c)
Therefore, work of A, B, and C together in one day = 1/25
A and C together can complete 30% of the work in 12 days
100% work will be done in (2/5)*100 = 40 days
Work by A and C together in one day = 1/40
Since A is 50% more efficient than C
Let per day work done by C = x and per day work done by A will be = 150% of x = (150/100)*x = 1.5x
x + 1.5x = 1/40
2.5x = 1/40
x = 1/100
Therefore per day one done by C = 1/100 and
Per day work done by A = 1.5*(1/100) = 1.5/100 = 3/200
Also,
B and C together can complete 75% of the work in 33 days
100% work will be completed in (33/75)*100 = 44 days
Work done by B and C in one day = 1/44
Let the one day work done by B = x
Therefore,
x + 1/100 = 1/44
x = 1/44 – 1/100
x = 7/550
Therefore, days taken by B alone to complete the work = 550/7 = 78.57 (79 approx)
