3, 5, 12, 39, 154, 772, 4634:

5 | |

3 | |

39 | |

154 |

Question 3 Explanation:

II number is 3*1+2 =5
III number is 5*2+2=12
IV number is 12*3+2=38
V number is 38*4+2=154
VI number is 154*5+2-772
So wrong number is 39

Question 4 |

701, 348, 173, 85, 41, 19, 8:

173 | |

41 | |

19 | |

348 |

Question 4 Explanation:

The wrong number is 348.
The correct sequence is 701,349,173,85,41,19,8
second number is 701- 352 = 349
third number is 349 - 176 = 173
fourth number is 173 - 88 = 85
fifth number is 85 - 44 = 41
sixth number is 41 - 22 = 19
and the seventh number is 19 - 11 = 8.
to get the next number in the sequence we are subtracting the sequence is 352,176,88,44,22,11. (which is every time we are dividing the number with 2)

Question 22 |

In a parallelogram ABCD, AP and BP are the angle bisectors of ∟DAB znc ∟ABC. Find ∟APB:

85 ^{0} | |

90 ^{0} | |

94 ^{0} | |

86 ^{0} |

Question 22 Explanation:

we know that, ∟DAB+ ∟ ABC=180
dividing by 2,
½ ∟ DAB+½ ∟ ABC= 180/2
∟ PAB + ∟PBA=90. ………(1 say)
hence, in triangle APB,
∟PAB +∟PBA + ∟APB=180. (Angle sum prop)
from 1,
angAPB+90= 180
ang APB=90

Question 23 |

A cuboid of dimension 24 cm × 9 cm × 8 cm is melted and smaller cubes of side 3 cm are formed. Find how many such cubes can be formed:

27 | |

64 | |

54 | |

32 |

Question 23 Explanation:

Volume of the cuboid : L*B*H = 24*9*8 = 1728 cm^3
Volume of the cube = (side)^3 = 3^3 = 27cm^3
Number of cubes possible = 1728 cm^3 / 27cm^3 = 64

Question 24 |

Instead of walking along two adjacent sides of a rectangular field, a boy took a short cut along the diagonal and saved a distance equal to half the longer side. Then, the ratio of the shorter side to the longer side is:

½ | |

2/3 | |

¼ | |

¾ |

Question 24 Explanation:

Let, Length = l say and breadth = b say.
According to given question we can write,
(l+b) - l2 + b2 = l/2
(l+b) -l/2 = l2 + b2
l + 2b = 2 l2 + b2 => l2+ 4b2 + 41lb = 4(l2 + b2)
b/l = 3/4

Question 25 |

In a fraction, the numerator is increased by 25% and the denominator is diminished by 10%. The fraction obtained is 5/9. The original fraction is:

2/5 | |

5/9 | |

3/5 | |

None of these |

Question 25 Explanation:

Let fraction is x/y
numerator increased by 25% then x will become 1.25x
denominator diminished by 10% then y will become 0.9x
From the given question we can write 1.25x0.9y= 59
xy= 25

Question 26 |

A factory employees skilled workers, unskilled, workers and clerks in the proportion 8 : 5 : 1 and the wages of a skilled worker, an unskilled worker and a clerk are in the ratio 5 : 2 : 3. When 20 unskilled workers are employed, the total daily wages of all (skilled workers, unskilled workers and clerks) amount to Rs. 318. The wages paid to each category of workers are:

Rs. 240, Rs. 60, Rs. 80 | |

Rs. 200, Rs. 90, Rs. 28 | |

Rs. 150, Rs. 108, Rs. 60 | |

Rs. 250, Rs. 50, Rs. 18 |

Question 26 Explanation:

Let us assume the common ratio of workers x and common ratio of wages is y.
So, 5x=20, or x= 4
So, skilled worker=8x4=32, unskilled worker= 20, clerks=4
Hence total wages=32x5y+20x2y+4x3y=212y
So, 212 y=318
or, y=1.5
So, daily wages of skilled workers = 5*1.5 = 7.5 Daily wages of unskilled worker=2*1.5 = 3
And daily wages of clerks =3*1.5= 4.5
Therefore, Wages paid to skilled workers = 7.5 * 32 = 240
wages paid to unskilled worker = 3*20 = 60
wages paid to clerks = 4.5*4 = 18

Question 27 |

½ log10 25 – 2 log10 3 + log10 18 equals:

18 | |

1 | |

log _{10}3 | |

None of these |

Question 27 Explanation:

Given that, ½ log10 25 – 2 log10 3 + log10 18 = ½ log10 5^2 – 2 log10 3 + log10 (9*2)
= log10 5 – log10 9 + log10 9 + log10 2
= log10 5 + log10 2
= log10 10
= 1

Question 28 |

In a mixture of 60L, the ratio of milk and water is 2 : 1. If the ratio of milk and water is to be 1 : 2, then the amount of water to be further added must be:

40 L | |

30 L | |

20 L | |

60 L |

Question 28 Explanation:

In a mixture of 60L, the ratio of milk and water is 2: 1, then milk is 40L and water is 20L.
if the ratio becomes 1:2, we need to add 60L of water then water becomes 80L.

Question 29 |

If x = p, y = q, then which of the following are p and q respectively for pair of equations 3x – 7y + 10 = 0 and y – 2x – 3 = 0:

– 1, 1 | |

1, 1 | |

1, 0 | |

0, 1 |

Question 29 Explanation:

Explanation: (-1,1) satisfies both the given equations.

Question 30 |

The students in a class are seated according to their marks in the previous examination. Once it so happens that four of these students get equal marks and therefore the same rank. To decide their seating arrangement, the teacher wants to write down all possible arrangements, one in each separate bit of paper, in order to choose one of these by lots. How many bits of paper are required?

9 | |

12 | |

15 | |

24 |

Question 30 Explanation:

We are given that four students got equal marks.
On one bit of paper, one arrangement of rank is to be written.
Let the students be named as A,B,C and D.
Now, A can be treated as having rank I in 4 ways.
B can be treated as having rank II in 3 ways.
C can be treated as having rank III in 2 ways.
D can be treated as having rank IV in 1 way.
Therefore, total number of bits of paper required for all arrangement
=4×3×2×1=24
