**Answers :**

**Directions (1 – 5): **

Total number of balls in Box E = 45

Total number of balls in Box D = (80/100) * Total number of balls in Box E

= 4/5 * 45

= 36

Total number of balls in Box B = Total number of balls in Box D – 1

= 36 – 1 = 35

Total number of balls in Box E = (150/100) * Total number of balls in Box A

45 = 150/100 * Total number of balls in Box A

Total number of balls in Box A = 45 * (100/150) = 30

Total number of balls in Box C = 30

**Box A: **

Probability of drawing one pink ball = 1/5

Probability of drawing one red ball = 2/15

Probability of drawing one green ball = 2/5

Probability of drawing one black ball = 1 – (1/5 + 2/15 + 2/5)

= 1 – (3/15 + 2/15 + 6/15)

= 1 – 11/15

= 4/15

Probability ratio of Pink, Red, Black and Green colour balls

= 1/5: 2/15: 4/15: 2/5

= 3: 2: 4: 6

Total number of balls = 30

Number of pink colour balls = 30 * (3/15) = 6

Number of red colour balls = 30 * (2/15) = 4

Number of black colour balls = 30 * (4/15) = 8

Number of green colour balls = 30 * (6/15) = 12

**Box B: **

Probability of drawing one pink ball = 2/7

Probability of drawing one red ball = 1/7

Probability of drawing one black ball = 12/35

Probability of drawing one green ball = 1 – (2/7 + 1/7 + 12/35)

= 1 – (10/35 + 5/35 + 12/35)

= 1 – 27/35

= 8/35

Probability ratio of Pink, Red, Black and Green colour balls

= 2/7: 1/7: 12/35: 8/35

= 10: 5: 12: 8

Total number of balls = 35

Number of pink colour balls = 35 * (10/35) = 10

Number of red colour balls = 35 * (5/35) = 5

Number of black colour balls = 35 * (12/35) = 12

Number of green colour balls = 35 * (8/35) = 8

**Box C: **

Probability of drawing one pink ball = 1/6

Probability of drawing one red ball = 1/5

Probability of drawing one green ball = 1/2

Probability of drawing one black ball = 1 – (1/6 + 1/5 + 1/2)

= 1 – (5/30 + 6/30 + 15/30)

= 1 – 26/30

= 4/30

Probability ratio of Pink, Red, Black and Green colour balls

= 1/6: 1/5: 4/30: 1/2

= 5: 6: 4: 15

Total number of balls = 30

Number of pink colour balls = 30 * (5/30) = 5

Number of red colour balls = 30 * (6/30) = 6

Number of black colour balls = 30 * (4/30) = 4

Number of green colour balls = 30 * (15/30) = 15

**Box D:**

Probability of drawing one pink ball = 1/9

Probability of drawing one red ball = 2/9

Probability of drawing one black ball = 2/9

Probability of drawing one green ball = 1 – (1/9 + 2/9 + 2/9)

= 1 – (5/9)

= 4/9

Probability ratio of Pink, Red, Black and Green colour balls

= 1/9: 2/9: 2/9: 4/9

= 1: 2: 2: 4

Total number of balls = 36

Number of pink colour balls = 36 * (1/9) = 4

Number of red colour balls = 36 * (2/9) = 8

Number of black colour balls = 36 * (2/9) = 8

Number of green colour balls = 36 * (4/9) = 16

**Box E: **

Probability of drawing one red ball = 4/15

Probability of drawing one black ball = 2/9

Probability of drawing one green ball = 1/3

Probability of drawing one pink ball = 1 – (4/15 + 2/9 + 1/3)

= 1 – (12/45 + 10/45 + 15/45)

= 1 – 37/45

= 8/45

Probability ratio of Pink, Red, Black and Green colour balls

= 8/45: 4/15: 2/9: 1/3

= 8: 12: 10: 15

Total number of balls = 45

Number of pink colour balls = 45 * (8/45) = 8

Number of red colour balls = 45 * (12/45) = 12

Number of black colour balls = 45 * (10/45) = 10

Number of green colour balls = 45 * (15/45) = 15

**1) Answer: c) **

Required probability

= 1/3 * (12C_{2}/30C_{2} + 15C_{2}/30C_{2} +15C_{2}/45C_{2})

= 1/3 * [(12*11/30*29) + (15*14/30*29) + (15*14/45*44)]

= 1/3 * (22/145 + 7/29 + 7/66)

= 1/3 * 4777/9570

= 4777/28710

**2) Answer: d) **

20% of the balls in Box A = 30 *(20/100)

= 6 balls

25% of the balls in Box D = 36 *(25/100)

= 9 balls

One – seventh of the balls in Box B = 1/7 * 35

= 5 balls

Total number of yellow colour balls in Box P = 6+9+5

= 20 balls

Total number of pink colour balls in Box P = 20*(5/4)

= 25 balls

Total number of balls in Box P = 20 + 25 = 45 balls

Required probability = (20C_{2} + 25C_{2})/45C_{2}

= [(20*19/1*2) + (25*24/1*2)]/(45*44/1*2)

= (190 + 300)/990

= 490/990

= 49/99

**3) Answer: a)**

**Quantity I: **One ball is taken from Box B and the probability of getting blue ball is 1/6

Total number of balls in Box B = 35 + blue colour balls

Probability of getting one blue ball = BC_{1}/(35 +B)C_{1} = 1/6

1/6 = B/(35 +B)

35 + B = 6B

5B = 35 = > B = 7

Total balls in Box B = 35 + 7 = 42

**Quantity II: **One ball is taken from Box C and the probability of getting yellow balls is 1/6

Total number of balls in Box C = 30 + Yellow colour balls

Probability of getting one yellow ball = YC_{1}/(30 + Y)C_{1} = 1/6

1/6 = Y/(30 + Y)

30 + Y = 6Y

5Y = 30 = > Y = 6

Total balls in Box B = 30 + 6 = 36

**Quantity III: **One ball is taken from Box E and the probability of getting brown ball is 1/10

Total number of balls in Box E = 45 + brown colour balls

Probability of getting one brown ball = BC_{1}/(45 +B)C_{1} = 1/10

1/10 = B/(45 +B)

45 + B = 10B

9B = 45 = > B = 5

Total balls in Box B = 45 + 5 = 50

**Quantity I > Quantity II < Quantity III**

**4) Answer: d) **

Probability of getting one pink ball from Box A = 6C_{1}/30C_{1}

= 6/30 = 1/5

Probability of getting one green ball from Box C = 15C_{1}/30C_{1}

= 15/30 = ½

Required ratio = 1/5: ½ = 2: 5

**5) Answer: e) **

50% of the balls from Box A = 50/100 * 30 = 15

20% of the balls from Box E = 20/100 * 45 = 9

2/9^{th} of the balls from Box D = 36 * 2/9 = 8

Total number of balls from Box X = 15 + 9 + 8

= 32 balls

**From I, **

Probability of getting one pink ball = PC_{1}/32C_{1} = ¼

¼ = P/32

4P = 32 => P = 8

Number of pink colour balls in Box X is 8. Total number of red and blue colour balls in Box X is (32 – 8) = 24 balls

From that, statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the given question.

**From II, **

Probability of getting one red ball = RC_{1}/32C_{1} =3/8

3/8 = R/32

8R = 32*3 => R = 12

Number of red colour balls in Box X is 12. Total number of pink and blue colour balls in Box X is (32 – 12) = 20 balls

From that, statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the given question.

**From III, **

Probability of getting one pink ball = BC_{1}/32C_{1} = 3/8

3/8 = B/32

8B = 32*3 => B = 12

Number of blue colour balls in Box X is 12. Total number of red and pink colour balls in Box X is (32 – 12) = 20 balls

From that, statement III alone is not sufficient to answer the given question.

**From I and II, **

Total balls = 32

Pink colour balls = 8

Red colour balls = 12

Blue colour balls = 32 – 8 – 12 = 12 balls

Required ratio = 8: 12: 12 = 2: 3: 3

**From II and III, **

Total balls = 32

Red colour balls = 12

Blue colour balls = 12 balls

Pink colour balls = 32 – 12 – 12 = 8 balls

Required ratio = 8: 12: 12 = 2: 3: 3

**From I and III, **

Total balls = 32

Pink colour balls = 8

Blue colour balls = 12

Red colour balls = 32 – 8 – 12 = 12 balls

Required ratio = 8: 12: 12 = 2: 3: 3

**Directions (6 – 10): **

**Monday:**

Ratio of downstream speed to upstream speed = 150: 100

= 3: 2

If the downstream speed is increased by 10 km/hr, then the boat takes 3 hours to cover 120 km.

Downstream speed = 3x + 10

According to the statement,

120/(3x+10) = 3

120 = 3*(3x + 10)

40 = 3x + 10

= > 3x = 30

= > x = 10 km/hr

Downstream speed = 3*10 = 30 km/hr

Upstream speed = 2*10 = 20 km/hr

Speed of the boat = ½ * (Downstream speed + Upstream speed)

= ½ *(30 + 20)

= ½ * 50 = 25 km/hr

Speed of the stream = ½ * (Downstream speed – Upstream speed)

= ½ * (30 – 20)

= ½ * 10 = 5 km/hr

**Tuesday: **

Ratio of the speed of the boat to speed of the stream = x: 1/4*x

= 4: 1

Downstream speed = 150/5 = 30 km/hr

Downstream speed = (4x + x) = 5x = 30 km/hr

= > x = 30/5 = 6 km/hr

Upstream speed = (4x – x) = 3x = 3 * 6 = 18 km/hr

Speed of the boat = ½ * (Downstream speed + Upstream speed)

= ½ * (30 + 18)

= ½ * 48 = 24 km/hr

Speed of the stream = ½*(Downstream speed – Upstream speed)

= ½ * (30 – 18)

= ½ * 12 = 6 km/hr

**Wednesday: **

Ratio of downstream speed to upstream speed = 200: 100 = 2: 1

Downstream speed = 200/5 = 40 km/hr

Upstream speed = 40/2 * 1 = 20 km/hr

Speed of the boat = ½ * (Downstream speed + Upstream speed)

= ½* (40 + 20)

= ½ * 60 = 30 km/hr

Speed of the stream = ½*(Downstream speed – Upstream speed)

= ½ * (40 – 20)

= ½ * 20 = 10 km/hr

**Thursday: **

Ratio of the speed of the boat to speed of the stream = x: 1/3*x

= 3: 1

Downstream speed = (3x +x) = 4x

Upstream speed = (3x – x) = 2x

Downstream speed – Upstream speed = 4x – 2x = 10 km/hr

2x = 10

= > x = 5 km/hr

Downstream speed = 5 * 4 = 20 km/hr

Upstream speed = 2 * 5 = 10 km/hr

Speed of the boat = 3x = 15 km/hr

Speed of the stream = x = 5 km/hr

**Friday: **

Ratio of the speed of the boat to the speed of the stream = 2: 1

Speed of the stream = 20 km/hr

Speed of the boat = 20/1 * 2 = 40 km/hr

Downstream speed = (Speed of the boat + Speed of the stream)

= (40 + 20) = 60 km/hr

Upstream speed = (Speed of the boat – Speed of the stream)

= (40 – 20) = 20 km/hr

**6) Answer: d)**

Speed of boat on Saturday = 50/100 *(25 + 15)

= 40/2 = 20 km/hr

Speed of the stream on Wednesday = 2*5 = 10 km/hr

Upstream speed = 20 – 10 = 10 km/hr

Total upstream distance covered by all the given boat in 5 days

= (20 + 18 + 20 + 10 + 20)*5

= 88*5 = 440 km

Average of upstream distance covered by all the boat in 5 hours in all 5 days together

= 440/5 = 88 km

Required time = 88/10 = 8.8 hours

**7) Answer: b) **

New speed of boat on Wednesday = 120/100 * 30

= 36 km/hr

New speed of stream on Wednesday = 120/100 * 10

= 12 km/hr

Downstream speed = 36 + 12 = 48 km/hr

Upstream speed = 36 – 12 = 24 km/hr

**From I,**

Total time taken by boat on Wednesday = 200/40 + 100/20

= 5 + 5 = 10 hours

New total time taken by boat on Wednesday = 200/48 + 100/24

= (400/48) = 25/3 hours

Required percentage = [(10 – 25/3) / 10] * 100 = 50/3 %

**Hence, statement I alone is sufficient to answer the given question. **

**From II, **

From statement II, we don’t have any other information about total distance covered by boat initially.

**Hence, statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the given question.**

**8) Answer: b)**

**Quantity I: **Total upstream distance covered by all the given boat in all the 5 days together in 10 hours.

Total upstream distance in all the given 5 days

= 10 *(20+18+20+10+20)

= 10*88 = 880 km

**Quantity II: **Total downstream distance covered by all the given boat in all the 5 days together in 5 hours.

Total downstream distance in all the given 5 days

= 5 * (30+30+40+20+60)

= 5 * 180

= 900 km

**Hence, Quantity I < Quantity II**

**9) Answer: e) **

Speed of the boat on Sunday = 50/100 * (24 + 40) = 32 km/hr

Speed of the stream on Sunday = ½ * 20 = 10 km/hr

Downstream speed = 32 + 10 = 42 km/hr

Upstream speed = 32 – 10 = 22 km/hr

Average speed = 2 * 42 * 22/(42 + 22)

= 231/8 km/hr

**10) Answer: b)**

**Quantity I: **Average speed of the boat on Friday is what percentage more/less than the average speed of the boat on Monday?

Average speed of the boat on Friday

= 2 * 60 * 20/(60 + 20)

= 2400/80

= 30 km/hr

Average speed of the boat on Monday

= 2 * 30 * 20/(30 + 20)

= 24 km/hr

Required percentage

= [(30 – 24)/24] * 100

= 25%

**Quantity II: **Average speed of the boat on Tuesday is what percentage more/less than the average speed of the boat on Thursday?

Average speed of the boat on Tuesday

= 2 * 30 * 18/(30 + 18)

= 22.5 km/hr

Average speed of the boat on Thursday

= 2 * 20*10/(20+10)

= 400/30 = 40/3 km/hr

Required percentage = [(22.5 – 40/3)/(40/3)] * 100

= [(27.5*3)/(40*3)] * 100

= 68.75%

**Hence, Quantity I < Quantity II**
