1. The efficiency of P is 25% more then Q and Q take 25 days to complete a piece of work. P started a work alone and then Q joined her 5 days before actual completion of the work. For how many days P worked alone?

A. 9

B. 10

C. 11

D. 12

Explanation:

Efficiency (P: Q) = 5: 4

Number of days(P: Q) = 4x : 5x = 4x : 25

Therefore, Number of days required by P to finish the work alone = 4x

= 4 x 5 = 20.

P and Q work together for last 5 days = 5 x 9 = 45%

Efficiency of P = 5% and Q’s efficiency = 4%

Therefore, No. of days taken by P to complete 55% work = 55/5 = 11 days

2. A man borrows Rs 4000 at 8% compound interest for 3 years. At the end of each year, he paid Rs 500. How much amount should he pay at the end of the 3rd year to clear the debt?

A. Rs 3465.2

B. Rs 3485.2

C. Rs 4345.4

D. Rs 3915.6

Explanation:

Amount after 1 yr = 4000[1 + 8/100] = 4320

Paid 500, so P = 4320 – 500 = 3820

Amount after 2nd yr = 3820[1 + 8/100] = 4125.6

So P= 4125.6-500 = 3625.6

Amount after 3rd yr = 3625.6[1 + 8/100] = 3915.6

3. If the ratio of Rate of filling of two Pipes A and B is 3:2. If together they can fill a Tank 5/6th of Tank in 20 minutes. Then in how many does A alone can fill the Tank?

B. 40 Minutes

C. 30 Minutes

D. 20 Minutes

Explanation:

5/6 tank = 20 Min

Full tank = 24 Min

1/2x+ 1/3x = 1/24

x = 20, A= 2x = 40 Min

4. A car covers first 10 km with 40km/hr next 10km with 60 km and next 10 km in 20 km/hr. What is the average speed of the car?

A. 320/11

B. 330/11

C. 350/11

D. 360/11

Explanation:

Average speed = (3*20*40*60)/800+2400+1200 = 360/11

5. A cube of side one meter length is cut into small cubes of side 10 cm each. How many such small cubes can be obtained?

A. 10

B. 100

C. 1000

D. 10000

Explanation:

Along one edge, the number of small cubes that can be cut

= 100/10 = 10

Along each edge, 10 cubes can be cut.

Total number of small cubes that can be cut = 10 * 10 * 10 = 1000

6. M and N are invested in a business. They earned some profit which they divided in the ratio of 2:3. If M invested Rs.30000, the amount invested by N is

N = 90,000/2 = 45,000

7. The parameter of a square is equal to the perimeter of a rectangle of length 16 cm and breadth 14 cm. Find the circumference of a semicircle whose diameter is equal to the side of the square. (Round off your answer to two decimal places)

A. 23.57 cm

B. 77.14 cm

C. 84.92 cm

D. 94.94 cm

Explanation:

Let the side of the square be a cm.

Parameter of the rectangle = 2(16 + 14) = 60 cm

Parameter of the square = 60 cm

i.e. 4a = 60

a = 15

Diameter of the semicircle = 15 cm

Circimference of the semicircle

= 1/2(∏)(15)

= 1/2(22/7)(15) = 330/14 = 23.57 cm to two decimal places
