**Answers :**

**Directions (1-3) :**

**1) Answer: D**

**Series I: **

11 * 1 + 3 = 14

14 * 2 + 5 = 33

33 * 3 + 7 = **106**

106 * 4 + 9 = 433

433 * 5 + 11 = 2176

The wrong term is, 105

**Series II: **

149, 157, 184, **248,** 373, 589

8 27 64 125 216

The wrong term is, 250

**2) Answer: C**

**Series I: **

80 * 1^{3} = 80

80 ÷ 2^{2} = **20**

20 * 3^{3} = 540

540 ÷ 4^{2} = 33.75

33.75 * 5^{3} = 4218.75

The wrong term is, 24

**Series II:**

540 * (1/2) = **270**

270 * (2/3) = 180

180 * (3/4) = 135

135 * (4/5) = 108

108 * (5/6) = 90

The wrong term is, 273

**3) Answer: E**

**Series I: **

472, 500, 530, **564,** 610, 704, 1038

28 30 34 46 94 334

2 4 12 48 240

The difference of difference is, *2, *3, *4, *5,….

The wrong term is, 565

**Series II:**

12 * 1 + 2^{2} = 16

16 * 2 + 3^{2} = 41

41 * 3 + 4^{2} = 139

139 * 4 + 5^{2} = **581**

581 * 5 + 6^{2} = 2941

The wrong term is, 582

**Directions (4-6) :**

**4) Answer: B**

(P + S)’s 1 day work = 1/12 + 1/18 = 30/(12*18) = 5/36

(P + S)’s 4 days work = (5/36) * 4 = 5/9

Remaining work = 1 – (5/9) = 4/9

Given,

(4/9) * (S + A)’s whole work = 8/3

(S + A)’s whole work = (8/3) * (9/4) = 6 days

A’s 1 day work = (1/6) – (1/18) = 1/9

A alone can complete the work in 9 days.

**5) Answer: C**

**Statement I:**

Part of work completed by R = (1500/4500) = 1/3

R worked for, (1/3) * 30 = 10 days

(Q + R)’s 1 day work = (1/24) + (1/30) = 54/(24 * 30)

(Q + R)’s 10 days work = [54/(24 * 30)] * 10 = ¾

Remaining work = 1 – ¾ = ¼

Given,

(1/4) * 24 = 6 days

Required number of days = 10 + 6 = 16 days

Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

**Statement II:**

Q’s per day work = 1/24

R’s per day work = 1/30

LCM of 24 and 30 = 120 units

Total work = 120 units

Q’s per day work = 120/24 = 5 units

R’s per day work = 120/30 = 4 units

Let the number of days Q and R worked is 8x and 5x respectively,

According to the question,

8x * 5 + 5x * 4 = 120

40x + 20x = 120

60x = 120

x = 2

Required number of days

= > (8 * 2 – 5 * 2) + (5 * 2)

= > (16 – 10) + 10 = 16 days

Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

**6) Answer: A**

(R + T)’s 1 day work

= > (1/30) + (1/25) = 55/(30 * 25)

= > 11/150

(R + T)’s 10 days work

= > (11/150) * 10 = 11/15

Remaining work = 1 – (11/15) = 4/15

Given,

(4/15) * (A + T)’s whole work = 40/9

(A + T)’s whole work = (40/9) * (15/4) = 50/3

A’s 1 day work = (3/50) – (1/25) = 1/50

A alone can complete the work in 50 days.

**Directions (7-10) :**

**7) Answer: A **

**Quantity I: **

Let the principle is 1

Interest = **22 2/9% = 2/9 **

**Amount = 1 + 2/9 = 11/9**

1st year amount = 27000* (11/9) = 33000

Let the principle is 1

Interest = 16 2/3% = 1/6

Amount = 1 + 1/6 = 7/6

2nd year amount = 33000*(7/6) = 38500

**Quantity II: **

The cost price of car = 2560000

Selling price of car = (94/100) * 2560000 = 2406400

The cost price of each bike = 2406400/2 = 1203200

Selling price of first bike = {(100 + 10)/100} * 1203200

= {(110)/100} * 1203200 = 1323520

Selling price of second bike = {(100 + 5)/100} * 1203200

= {(105)/100} * 1203200 = 1263360

The total selling price of both the bikes = 1323520 + 1263360 = 2586880

Profit = Total selling price of both the bikes – cost price of the car

Profit = 2586880 – 2560000

Profit = 26880

**Quantity I > Quantity II**

**8) Answer: C **

**Quantity I: **The initial investment ratio of A and B = 2: 5 (for 4 months)

Let the initial investment of A and B is 2x and 5x respectively.

Then, C’s investment after 4 months = 5x (same as initial investment of B)

Investment * time

A: B: C = 24x: 40x: 40x

Ratio of profit = 3: 5: 5

Let the profit of A, B and C is 3k, 5k and 5k respectively.

Profit of B = 5k = Rs. 4000

k = Rs. 800

Therefore, the total profit of A and C = (3k + 5k) = 8k =8 * 800 = Rs. 6400 ** Quantity II: **The ratio of investment of A, B and C is 3: 4: 7.

Ratio of total profit of A, B and C (including B’s Rs.9000 for managing the business) = (3: 4: 7) * 2 = 6: 9: 14

Ratio of profit of A, B, and C (excluding B’s Rs. 9000 for managing the business)

3: 4: 7 = (3: 4: 7) * 2 = 6: 8: 14

Amount received by B for managing the business = 9000

9’s – 8’s = 9000

1’s = 9000

Profit obtained by A = 6’s = 6 * 9000 = Rs. 54000

**Quantity II > Quantity I**

**9) Answer: C**

**Quantity I:** Let the marked price of a pen = 5x and marked price of pencil

= 4x

Given, MP of pencil = MP of pen – 3

4x = 5x – 3

x = 3

MP of each pen = 5 * 3 = 15

MP of each pencil = 4 * 3 = 12

And let the number of pen bought = 3y and number of pencils bought = 5y

CP of each pen for Atul = 15 * {(100 – 10)/100} = 15 * (90/100) = 13.5

CP of each pencil for Atul = 12 * {100 – 25)/100} = 12 * (75/100) = 9

Expenditure on pens = 13.5 * 3y = 40.5y

Expenditure on pencils = 9 * 5y = 45y

Total expenditure = 40.5y + 45y = 85.5y = 342

y = 4

Number of pencils bought by Atul = 5y = 5 * 4 = 20** **

**Quantity II: **Daughter’s age = 28 * (1/4) = 7

Sum of mother’s and father’s present age = 7 * (7/1) = 49

Mother’s present age = 49 – 28 = 21 years

**Quantity II > Quantity I**

**10) Answer: C **

**Quantity I: **

Let the speed of boat in still water = 7x and speed of stream = x

Upstream speed = 7x – x = 6x

Downstream speed = 7x + x = 8x

ATQ,

(67.5)/8x = 2.25

(67.5)/2.25 = 8x

30 = 8x

x = 3.75

Upstream speed = 6x = 6*3.75 = 22.5km/hr

**Quantity II: **

Speed of boat upstream = 112/8 = 14km/h

Speed of boat downstream = 1.9*14 = 26.6km/h

Speed of boat in still water = (Upstream speed +Downstream speed)/2

= (26.6+14)/2 = 20.3km/h

**Quantity I > Quantity II**
