Directions (1-5) :

From statement I,

The ratio of length and breadth of a rectangle = 7 : 5 (7x, 5x)

Given,

7x * 5x = 875

35x2 = 875

x2 = 875 / 35 = 25

x = 5

The length of the rectangle = The radius of circle = 35 m

Perimeter of circle = 2 * (22/7) * 35 = 220 m

Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

From statement II,

The perimeter of the square = 4a = 140 m

Side (a) = 140 / 4 = 35 m = The radius of circle

Perimeter of circle = 2 * (22/7) * 35 = 220 m

Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

From statement I and II,

5 years ago, the age of P and 8 years hence, the age of Q is in the ratio = 2: 3

The present age of P and Q = 2x + 5, 3x – 8

The age of Q, 5 years ago = 17 years

The present age of Q = 22 years

3x – 8 = 22

3x = 30

x = 10

The present age of P = 25 years

The average present age of P, Q and R, after 10 years = 35 years

25 + 22 + R + 30 = 35 * 3

77 + R = 105

R = 28

The present age of R = 28 years

Both the Statement I and II are sufficient to answer the question.

From statement I,

The height of the cylinder = 21 cm

The surface area of cylinder = 3080 cm

= > 2πr (r + h) = 3080

= > 2 * (22/7) * r * (r + 21) = 3080

= > r2 + 21r = 3080 * (7/44)

= > r2 + 21r = 490

= > r2 + 21r – 490 = 0

= > (r + 35) (r – 14) = 0

= > r = 14, -35 (Negative value will be eliminated)

Side of the square (a) = 14 cm

Perimeter of square = 4a = 4 * 14 = 56 cm

Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

From statement II,

The height of the cylinder = (r + 7) cm

The volume of the cylinder = 12936 sq cm

= > πr2h = 12936

= > (22/7) * r2 * (r + h) = 12936

Statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

From statement I and II,

(8 w + 4 m) * 10 = (10 w + 8 m) * 6

40 w + 20 m = 30 w + 24 m

10 w = 4 m

5 w = 2 m

8 w + 4 m = 8 w + 10 w = 18 w

12 w + 6 m = 12 w + 15 w = 27 w

Women      days

18               10

27               ?

Required days = (18 * 10) / 27 = 20/3 = 6 2/3 days

Both the Statement I and II are sufficient to answer the question.

From statement I,

CP = 2400 – 560 = Rs. 1840

Statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.

From statement II,

SP = 3200 * (75/100) = Rs. 2400

CP = 2400 – 560 = Rs. 1840

Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Directions (6-10) :

Upstream speed=30/(72/60) =25 kmph

Speed of the Boat in still water=28 kmph

Speed of the stream=28 – 25 =3 kmph

Downstream Speed=28 + 3 =31 kmph

The travelling time of boat in downstream = (72 * 100) / 120 = 60 minutes

Distance travelled in downstream=31 * 1=31 km

Consider the speed of stream = W

Time taken by boat to cover 75 km in downstream = 75 / (20+ W)

Time taken by boat to cover that distance in upstream =75 / (20 – W)

So ,

(75/(20 + W)) / (75 / (20 –W)) =3/5

(20 – W) / (20 + W) = 3/5

60 + 3W = 100 – 5W

40 = 8W

W=5 kmph

Speed of steam=24 – 20 =4 kmph

Speed of downstream=24 + 4 =28 kmph

Speed of the boat in still water = 16 kmph

Speed of stream = (1/4) * 16 = 4 kmph

Speed of boat in downstream = 16 + 4 = 20 kmph

Speed of boat in upstream = 16 – 4 = 12 kmph

(x/12)  – (x/20) = 2

5x – 3x=120

X=60 km

Speed of boat in upstream=120/10=12 kmph

Speed of stream = 18 – 12 = 6 kmph

Speed of boat in downstream=18 + 6 =24 kmph

Time taken by the boat in downstream = 120/24 = 5 hours
