6. Answer: d
Let wine and water in jar is 4x and x
(4x-10*4/5)/(x-10*1/5+10) = 2/3
4x-8/X+8 = 2/3
12X – 24 = 2X+16

Initially wine in jar = 4*4=16 lit
7. Answer: d
Taking 3 particular persons as single entity,
We have 12-3+1 = 10 persons to be seated.
No. of ways of seating these 10 persons
= (10-1)!*3! = 9!*3!
Total no. of ways of seating 12 persons
= (12-1)! =11!
Required probability = 9!*3! /11! = 3*2/11*10=3/55
8. Answer: b
9. Answer: b
Assume 10 boys as B_{1}, B_{2},…… B_{10}
B_{1 }is fixed_{; }other 9 boys can form a ring.
Therefore 9! = 362880
10. Answer: b
Given, the Ratio of A’s last year and present year salary = 3:5.
Let salary be 3x and 5x respectively.
Also, the Ratio of B’s in last year and present year salary = 2:3
Let salary be 2y and 3y respectively.
Given, 3x/2y=4/5.
=>15x=8y. ————— (i)
Also, 5x+3y=6800. ————— (ii)
From equation (i) and (ii), we get:-
y=1200 and x=640.
Hence, A’s present salary is 5x=5×640=3200.

14. Answer: c
X= ±32
Y= 1086
X < y
15. Answer: a
X= √5 – √3
X=0.5
Y=√7-√5
Y=0.4
So x>y
16. Answer: b
According to the question
(A+B+C)/3=90
=> A+B+C =270…………..(1)
(A+B+C +D)/4=80
=> A+B+C +D=320………(2)
From the equation 1 and 2
D=50
E =6/5×50=60
(E+B+C +D)/4=78
=> E+B+C +D =312
B+C +D =312-60=252……………..(3)
From equation 2 and 3
The age of A=320-252=68
17. Answer: b
Let R = c
Q = 6c
P = 24c/3 = 8c
P : Q : R= 8c:6c:c = 8: 6: 1
So Q’s capital = Rs. 35860 * 6/15
= Rs.14344
18. Answer: b
50*12/60 = 10/60 * (50+x)
600 = 500 + 10x
x = 10 kmph
19 Answer: a
There are 3 consonants and 3 vowels in the word DILUTE.
Out of 6 places, 3 places odd and 3 places are even.
3 vowels can arranged in 3 even places in 3p3 ways = 3! = 6 ways.
And then 3 consonants can be arranged in the remaining 3 places in 3p3 ways = 3! = 6 ways.
Hence, the required number of ways = 6 x 6 = 36.
20. Answer: c
Let the speed of the van be x km/hr
And that of the train be y km/hr
360/x+1440/y = 24 —————>A
Dividing by 24 on both sides
15/x+60/y = 1 ———à1
And 600/x +1200/y =25
Dividing by 25 on both sides
24/x+48/y = 1 ———–à2
Multiply 1 by 24, 360/x +1440/y = 24
Multiply 2 by 15 360/x+720/y = 15
Subtract the above equation
720/y =9
Y=80
Put y value in A
360/x = 24-18
X=360/6
X=60
Ratio of speeds = 60:80 = 3:4
Direction (21-25)
21. Answer: d
Average monthly income of Aathi
= (23000+24500+26100+27000+29300+31200)/6
= 1/6×161100= 26850
∴Required difference = 44000 – 26850 = Rs. 17150
22. Answer: b
Required percentage
= 31000/(28200+36000+33000) *100
= 31000/97200×100≈32%
23. Answer: e
Required ratio = (24500+40200)×12 / (31800+19200)×12
= 64700*12: 51000*12
=647/510
24. Answer: c
Monthly salary of Shalu and Ananth = 31800 + 27900 = 59700
Monthly salary of Aathi and Rishi = 29300 + 44000 = 73300
∴Required percentage = 13600/73300×100≈19% less.
25. Answer: b
20% of amount left after donation = 20/100×95/100×44000
= Rs. 8360
C.I. after 3 years = 8360[(1+ 5/100)^{3}-1]
= 8360 × 0.1576
≈ Rs. 1318
Direction (26-30)
26. Answer b
Required % = ([135/6]/[200/6]) x 100 = 67.5%
27. Answer a
Let the expenditure was x lakhs
So, 50 = 30-x/x * 100
x = 20 lakhs
28. Answer a
Income of Company A in the year 2006, 2008 and 2010
= > (30+40+15) = 85 lakhs
Income of company B in the year 2005, 2007 and 2009
= > (20+35+55) = 110 lakhs
Required % = ((110-85)/110)*100 = 22 8/11 % less = 23 %
29. Answer c
Required % = (50-45)/45 x 100 = 11.11% ≈ 11%
30. Answer d
Required % profit = (35-15)/15 x 100 = 133.33%
