Question 6 of 15
6. Question
Starting from the same point at the same time on a circular track 1248m long. Arvind moves in the clockwise direction and Ritesh and Dipesh move in anticlockwise. Amit meets Ritesh every 1 min and 18 sec and Amit meets Dipesh every 1 min 36 s. After every how many seconds does Ritesh meet Dipesh?
Correct
Answer: c)
Let their speeds be A m/s, C m/s and D m/s respectively for Arvind, Ritesh and Dipesh.
According to the question,
1248/ (A + C) = 78 or A + C = 16 — (i)
1248 / (A+D) = 96 or A + D = 13 — (ii)
Solving Eq (i) and (ii)
C â€“ D = 3
Every second Ritesh gains 3 m over Dipesh. As they are moving in the same direction.
âˆ´ Time taken by Ritesh to meet Dipesh.
= 1248/3 = 416 s

Question 9 of 15
9. Question
P is a 2 digit number â€˜abâ€™, Q is a 3-digit number â€˜cdeâ€™, if you multiply P and Q then multiple it by 9, then you will get abcde. What is the sum of P and Q?
Correct
Answer: d)
Let number = abcde
= 1000 (ab) + cde
N = 1000P = Q = 9.P.Q
N = F (P, Q)
9PQ = 1000 + P + Q
If Q = 1000 then,
900 P < 1000 P + 100
P must be greater than 111
9 P.111= 999 P = 1000 P + Q
Check the options
9 Ã— 112 Ã— P = 1000P = 112
1008P = 1000P + 112
8P = 112Â Â P = 14
P = 14, Q = 112 satisfy
9 PQ = 1000 P + Q
So, P + Q = 126
Incorrect

N = 1000P = Q = 9.P.Q
N = F (P, Q)
9PQ = 1000 + P + Q
If Q = 1000 then,
900 P < 1000 P + 100
P must be greater than 111
9 P.111= 999 P = 1000 P + Q
Check the options
9 Ã— 112 Ã— P = 1000P = 112
1008P = 1000P + 112
8P = 112Â Â P = 14
P = 14, Q = 112 satisfy
9 PQ = 1000 P + Q
So, P + Q = 126

11. Question
A can do a job in 36 days, B is 20% more efficient than A and C is 50% more efficient than B, B and C together can do the job in
Correct
Answer: b)
Ratio of efficiency of A:B:C = 100:120:180 = 5 : 6 : 9
Efficiency of A is 5=36, therefore 1=36Ã—5,
so B+C(6+9=15), 15= 36 Ã—5/15=12 Days
Incorrect
Answer: b)
Ratio of efficiency of A:B:C = 100:120:180 = 5 : 6 : 9

Question 12 of 15
12. Question
In a class of 51 students, the difference between the highest marks and the least marks is 70. If the average score is calculated without considering the student who got the highest marks then the average score decreases by 1%. If the average score is calculated without considering the student who got the least marks then the average score increases by 1 1/3 %. What is the original average score of the class?
Correct
Answer: a)
Suppose the average marks be x. Highest and least marks be p and q respectively,
Then, 51x = 50x Ã— 0.99 + a
51x = 50 Ã— 1.013 + b
50x Ã— 0.99 + a = 50x Ã— 1.013 + 6
a â€“ b = 70[given]
70 = 50x [0.023]
x = 60

Question 14 of 15
14. Question
Seema invests Rs 2000 in 3 months fixed deposit scheme of HDFC Bank at a rate of interest of 12.5%. Due to some changes in government policies, the rate of interest changed in every three months, after the first period, to 12%, 11% and 10% respectively. Assuming that Seema with draws the interest after every 3 months but continues deposit, how much more interest would Seema has earned?
Correct
Answer: d)
The usual procedure adopted would be to compute the total interest earned for one year at 12.5% interest, the interest earned with the prevailing rates of interest and determine the difference. A faster way would be to compute only the increase or decrease in the interest earned in every period over 12.5%.
