All of the option |

Question 2 Explanation:

Adjacency Matrix

● Uses O(n

● It fast to lookup and check for presence or absence of a specific edge between any two nodes O(1)

● It slow to iterate over all edges

● It slow to add/delete a node is a complex operation O(n

Adjacency List

● Use memory pending on the number of edges (not number of nodes), Which might save a lot of memory if the adjacency matrix is a sparse

● Finding the presence or absence specific edge between any two nodes Is slightly slower than with the matrix O(k) where k number of neighbors nodes

● It is fast to iterate over all edges,because you can access any node neighbors directly

● It is fast to add/delete a node is easier than the matrix representation

Question 5 Explanation:

The basic idea of DFS is

● Pick a starting node and push all its adjacent nodes into a stack.

● Pop a node from stack to select the next node to visit and push all its adjacent nodes into a stack.

● Repeat this process until the stack is empty. However, ensure that the nodes that are visited are marked.

● This will prevent you from visiting the same node more than once. If you do not mark the nodes that are visited and you visit the same node more than once, you may end up in an infinite loop.

Question 23 |

The probability that top and bottom cards of a randomly shuffled deck are both aces is:

4/52 X 4/52 | |

4/52 X 3/52 | |

4/52 X 3/51 | |

4/52 X 4/51 |

Question 23 Explanation:

E 1 : First card being ace

E 2 : Last card being ace

Note that E 1 and E 2 are dependent events, i.e., probability of last card being ace if first is ace will be lesser than the probability of last card being ace if first card is not ace.

So, probability of first card being ace = 4/52

Probability of last card being ace given that first card is ace is,

P(E 2 / E 1 ) = 3/51

∴ P(E 1 and E 2 ) = P(E 1 ) ⋅ P(E 2 / E 1 ) = 4/52 * 3/51

E 2 : Last card being ace

Note that E 1 and E 2 are dependent events, i.e., probability of last card being ace if first is ace will be lesser than the probability of last card being ace if first card is not ace.

So, probability of first card being ace = 4/52

Probability of last card being ace given that first card is ace is,

P(E 2 / E 1 ) = 3/51

∴ P(E 1 and E 2 ) = P(E 1 ) ⋅ P(E 2 / E 1 ) = 4/52 * 3/51

Question 28 |

The availability of complex software is 90% its Mean Time Between Failure(MTBF) is 200 days. Because of the critical nature of the usage, the organization deploying the software further enhanced it to obtain an availability of 95%. In the process, the Mean Time To Repair(MTTR) increased by 5 days. What is the MTBF of the enhanced software?(choose the nearest option)

205 days | |

300 days | |

500 days | |

700 days |

Question 28 Explanation:

Case-1:Availability of complex software =90% =0.9

Mean Time Between Failure(MTBF)=200

MTTR =?(we need to find )

Case-2:After enhancement modified ,availability= 95%=0.95,For this case,Mean Time To Repair(MTTR) increased by 5 days.

MTBF=?(we need to find )

Availability = MTBF/(MTBF + MTTR)

Case-1:

By substituting option-1 value, 0.9 = 200/(200 + MTTR) then

MTTR= 22.22

Case 2 :0.95 = MTBF/( MTBF+22.22+5)

MTBF= 517.18

Mean Time Between Failure(MTBF)=200

MTTR =?(we need to find )

Case-2:After enhancement modified ,availability= 95%=0.95,For this case,Mean Time To Repair(MTTR) increased by 5 days.

MTBF=?(we need to find )

Availability = MTBF/(MTBF + MTTR)

Case-1:

By substituting option-1 value, 0.9 = 200/(200 + MTTR) then

MTTR= 22.22

Case 2 :0.95 = MTBF/( MTBF+22.22+5)

MTBF= 517.18

Question 51 Explanation:

Here, we can get the first item using profit per weight even we are using 0/1 knapsack.

→ According to above Profit/weight ratio, the item-1 having maximum profit. So, pick item-1.

→ Now M=7, Pick item-2 because it has more profit.

→ Now M=5, Now according to profit/weight ration we can pick item-3 or item-5 but item-5 having more weight, so it exceeds capacity. If we are selecting item-3 means we are wasting 1 slot. So, here, profit/weight ration fails. So, follow brute force technique in this position. We can pick item-4 because it has weight 5.

→ Now, M=0 and Profit=19. [item1 + item2 + item4]

→ According to above Profit/weight ratio, the item-1 having maximum profit. So, pick item-1.

→ Now M=7, Pick item-2 because it has more profit.

→ Now M=5, Now according to profit/weight ration we can pick item-3 or item-5 but item-5 having more weight, so it exceeds capacity. If we are selecting item-3 means we are wasting 1 slot. So, here, profit/weight ration fails. So, follow brute force technique in this position. We can pick item-4 because it has weight 5.

→ Now, M=0 and Profit=19. [item1 + item2 + item4]

Question 1 |

What is the maximum number of the handshakes that can happen in the room with 5 people in it?

15 | |

10 | |

6 | |

5 |

Question 1 Explanation:

Let’s suppose there is ‘n’ number of persons are there and each one suppose to do an handshake with ‘n-1 persons.

So,

Total number of handshakes is = n(n-1) (with repetition)

But we need without repetition means distant handshakes (A→ B, B → A) so we divided by ‘2’

= n(n-1) / 2

= 5(5-1) / 2

= 10

So,

Total number of handshakes is = n(n-1) (with repetition)

But we need without repetition means distant handshakes (A→ B, B → A) so we divided by ‘2’

= n(n-1) / 2

= 5(5-1) / 2

= 10

Question 2 |

A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. What is the length of the train?

120 meters | |

180 meters | |

324 meters | |

150 meters |

Question 2 Explanation:

Let’s take length of the train = ‘x’

Speed of the Train = 60km/hr and crosses a pole in 9 Seconds.

Speed of the train is km/hr and crosses a pole in seconds.

So we need to convert the km/hr into mts /sec.

For that one we need to multiply the speed of the train to (5/18).

Speed of the train = 60 * (5/18)

We have one Basic formula in Time and Distance

Distance = Speed * Time

x = 60 * (5/18) * 9

x = 150 mts

Speed of the Train = 60km/hr and crosses a pole in 9 Seconds.

Speed of the train is km/hr and crosses a pole in seconds.

So we need to convert the km/hr into mts /sec.

For that one we need to multiply the speed of the train to (5/18).

Speed of the train = 60 * (5/18)

We have one Basic formula in Time and Distance

Distance = Speed * Time

x = 60 * (5/18) * 9

x = 150 mts

Question 3 |

The percentage profit earned by selling an article for Rs. 1,920 is equal to the percentage loss incurred by selling the same article for Rs. 1,280. At what price should the article be sold to make 25% profit?

Rs 2,000 | |

Rs 2,200 | |

Rs 2,400 | |

Data inadequate |

Question 3 Explanation:

For this Problem, We need two important formulas.

1. %Profit = ((Selling Price - Cost Price) / (Cost Price) ) * 100

2. %Loss = ((Cost Price - Selling Price) / (Cost Price)) * 100

From the above question we know

% Profit = % Loss

Selling price when they got profit = 1920 /-

Selling price when they got loss = 1280 /-

((1920 - Cost Price ) / ( Cost Price) ) * 100 = (( Cost Price - 1280 ) / (Cost Price)) * 100

After Solving this

2 * Cost Price = 3200

Cost Price = 1600

We got cost price, Now we need to find out Selling price when they got 25% Profit

Cost Price = 1600

Profit% = 25

Selling Price = ?

%Profit = ((Selling Price - Cost Price) / (Cost Price) ) * 100

25 = ((Selling Price - 1600) / 1600)) * 100

25 * 16 = Selling Price - 1600

Selling Price = 1600 + 400

Selling Price = 2000/-

1. %Profit = ((Selling Price - Cost Price) / (Cost Price) ) * 100

2. %Loss = ((Cost Price - Selling Price) / (Cost Price)) * 100

From the above question we know

% Profit = % Loss

Selling price when they got profit = 1920 /-

Selling price when they got loss = 1280 /-

((1920 - Cost Price ) / ( Cost Price) ) * 100 = (( Cost Price - 1280 ) / (Cost Price)) * 100

After Solving this

2 * Cost Price = 3200

Cost Price = 1600

We got cost price, Now we need to find out Selling price when they got 25% Profit

Cost Price = 1600

Profit% = 25

Selling Price = ?

%Profit = ((Selling Price - Cost Price) / (Cost Price) ) * 100

25 = ((Selling Price - 1600) / 1600)) * 100

25 * 16 = Selling Price - 1600

Selling Price = 1600 + 400

Selling Price = 2000/-

Question 4 |

A boatman goes 2 Km against the current of the stream in 1 hour and goes 1 Km along the current in 10 minutes. How long will it take to go 5 Km in stationary water?

40 minutes | |

1 hour | |

1 hr 15 min | |

1 hr 30 min |

Question 4 Explanation:

Speed of the Down Stream = 2 km/ 1 = 2 km/hr

Speed of the Upstream = 5km / (10/60) = 6km/hr

Speed of the Boat still in water = (Downstream + Upstream ) / 2 = (6 + 2) / 2

= 4 km/hr

Time taken for 5 km in Stationary water = 5/4 = 1(1⁄4)

= 1Hr 15 Min

Speed of the Upstream = 5km / (10/60) = 6km/hr

Speed of the Boat still in water = (Downstream + Upstream ) / 2 = (6 + 2) / 2

= 4 km/hr

Time taken for 5 km in Stationary water = 5/4 = 1(1⁄4)

= 1Hr 15 Min

Question 5 |

The present ages of three persons in proportions 4 : 7 : 9. Eighty years ago, the sum of their ages was 56. Find their present ages (in years).

8, 20, 28 | |

16, 28, 36 | |

20, 35, 45 | |

None of the above |

Question 5 Explanation:

Present age of 3 persons is = 4x, 7x, 9x

Eight years ago their sum is = 56

So,

4x+7x+9x-(8+8+8) = 56 (Eight Years Ago so that we subtract their individual ages from present age)

20x = 80

x = 4

Present ages = 4 * 4 , 7*4, 9*4

= 16, 28, 36

Eight years ago their sum is = 56

So,

4x+7x+9x-(8+8+8) = 56 (Eight Years Ago so that we subtract their individual ages from present age)

20x = 80

x = 4

Present ages = 4 * 4 , 7*4, 9*4

= 16, 28, 36

Question 6 |

A tank is filled by three pipes with uniform flow. The first two pipes operating simultaneously fill the tank in the same time during which the tank is filled by the third pipe alone. The second pipe fills the tank 5 hours faster than the first pipe and 4 hours slower than the third pipe. The time required by the first pipe is?

6 hours | |

10 hours | |

15 hours | |

30 hours |

Question 6 Explanation:

Let’s take the first pipe to a fill a tank in ‘x’ hours.

So, from that question we know that second pipe fills a tank 5 hours faster than 1st pipe means second pipe fills a tank in ‘x/5’ hours.

And Second pipe fills a tank 4 hours slower than third pipe means third pipe can fill a tank in ‘x/20’ hours.

The first two pipes operating simultaneously fill the tank in the same time during which the tank is filled by the third pipe alone.

(1 / x) + (5 / x) = (20 / x)

x = 15 Hours

So, from that question we know that second pipe fills a tank 5 hours faster than 1st pipe means second pipe fills a tank in ‘x/5’ hours.

And Second pipe fills a tank 4 hours slower than third pipe means third pipe can fill a tank in ‘x/20’ hours.

The first two pipes operating simultaneously fill the tank in the same time during which the tank is filled by the third pipe alone.

(1 / x) + (5 / x) = (20 / x)

x = 15 Hours

Question 7 |

A rectangular field is to be fenced on three sides leaving a side of 20 feet uncovered. If the area of the field is 680 sq feet, how many feet of fencing will be required?

34 | |

40 | |

68 | |

88 |

Question 7 Explanation:

Given that length and area, so we can find the breadth.

Length x Breadth = Area

20 x Breadth = 680

Breadth = 34 feet

Area to be fenced = 2B + L = 2 (34) + 20 = 88 feet

Length x Breadth = Area

20 x Breadth = 680

Breadth = 34 feet

Area to be fenced = 2B + L = 2 (34) + 20 = 88 feet

Question 8 |

In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘CORPORATION’ be arranged so that the vowels always come together?

810 | |

1440 | |

2880 | |

50400 |

Question 8 Explanation:

In ‘CORPORATION’ We have total 5 vowels (OOAIO) and taken has one unit

Remaining Consonants are (CRPRTN) 6 and add vowels unit 1.

6 + 1 = 7 In this R is repeated 2 times

In ‘CORPORATION’ We have total 5 vowels (OOAIO) and taken has one unit Remaining Consonants are (CRPRTN) 6 and add vowels unit 1. 6 + 1 = 7 In this R is repeated 2 times So number of ways we can arrange these words = 7! / 2! = 2520

number of ways we can arrange vowels is 5!

2 ‘O’ are repeated so 5! / 2! = 20

Total Number ways = 2520 * 20 = 50400

So number of ways we can arrange these words = 7! / 2! = 2520

number of ways we can arrange vowels is 5!

2 ‘O’ are repeated so 5! / 2! = 20

Total Number ways = 2520 * 20 = 50400

Remaining Consonants are (CRPRTN) 6 and add vowels unit 1.

6 + 1 = 7 In this R is repeated 2 times

In ‘CORPORATION’ We have total 5 vowels (OOAIO) and taken has one unit Remaining Consonants are (CRPRTN) 6 and add vowels unit 1. 6 + 1 = 7 In this R is repeated 2 times So number of ways we can arrange these words = 7! / 2! = 2520

number of ways we can arrange vowels is 5!

2 ‘O’ are repeated so 5! / 2! = 20

Total Number ways = 2520 * 20 = 50400

So number of ways we can arrange these words = 7! / 2! = 2520

number of ways we can arrange vowels is 5!

2 ‘O’ are repeated so 5! / 2! = 20

Total Number ways = 2520 * 20 = 50400

Question 10 |

A flag staff 17.5 m high casts a shadow of length 40.25 m. The height of the building, which casts a shadow of length 28.75 m under similar condition will be?

10 m | |

12.5 m | |

17.5 m | |

21.25 m |

Question 10 Explanation:

Let’s take height of the building is x.

From that question we know that less height less shadow so it’s directly proportional.

40.25 : 17.5 : : 28.75 : x

x = (17.5 * 28.75) / 40.25

x = 12.5 m

From that question we know that less height less shadow so it’s directly proportional.

40.25 : 17.5 : : 28.75 : x

x = (17.5 * 28.75) / 40.25

x = 12.5 m

630 | |

640 | |

650 |

Question 13 Explanation:

The difference between compound interest and simple interest on Rs. P for 2 years at R% per annum is = p * (R/100)^2

P * (R/100)^2 = 1

P * (4/100)^2 = 1

P * (1/25)^2 = 1

P = 625

So, Sum is 625

P * (R/100)^2 = 1

P * (4/100)^2 = 1

P * (1/25)^2 = 1

P = 625

So, Sum is 625

39, 30 | |

41, 32 | |

42, 33 | |

43, 34 |

Question 43 Explanation:

Let’s one student secured marks ‘x’

Another student secured ‘x + 9’

According to question

x + 9 = (56 * 100)(x + x + 9)

100 (x + 9) = 56 (2x + 9)

After solving this we got x = 33

So option C is correct.

Another student secured ‘x + 9’

According to question

x + 9 = (56 * 100)(x + x + 9)

100 (x + 9) = 56 (2x + 9)

After solving this we got x = 33

So option C is correct.
