In certain city the Taxi charges comprise of a fixed charge and the charge of the distance travelled. A person paid ` 156 for a journey of 16 km and another person paid ` 204 for the journey of 24 km. The amount paid by a passenger who has travelled 30 km is
236  
240  
248  
256 
Question 34 Explanation:
Fixed charge = ‘x’ Say
Variable charge = Rs y per km
⇒ x + 16y = 156 → (1)
x + 24y = 204 → (2)
By solving (1) & (2),
x = 60, y = 6
⇒ Cost for travelling distance of 30 km = 60 + 3y
= 60 + 3(6)
= Rs 240
Variable charge = Rs y per km
⇒ x + 16y = 156 → (1)
x + 24y = 204 → (2)
By solving (1) & (2),
x = 60, y = 6
⇒ Cost for travelling distance of 30 km = 60 + 3y
= 60 + 3(6)
= Rs 240

80  
76  
74  
72 
Question 63 Explanation:
Given data:
Total number of students = 210
1/3 rd of 210 = 70 students
Mean marks of 70 students = 60
To Find: Mean of the whole group= ?
Let the sum of marks of 70 students be X
Mean = X / Number of students
60 = X/70
X = 70*60
⇒ Sum of marks of 70 students = 4200
Remaining students = 210  70 = 140 students
Mean of 140 students = 78
Sum of marks of 78 students = 140*78 = 10920
Total marks of 210 students = 4200 + 10920
= 15120
Mean of whole group = 15120 / 210
= 72 marks
Total number of students = 210
1/3 rd of 210 = 70 students
Mean marks of 70 students = 60
To Find: Mean of the whole group= ?
Let the sum of marks of 70 students be X
Mean = X / Number of students
60 = X/70
X = 70*60
⇒ Sum of marks of 70 students = 4200
Remaining students = 210  70 = 140 students
Mean of 140 students = 78
Sum of marks of 78 students = 140*78 = 10920
Total marks of 210 students = 4200 + 10920
= 15120
Mean of whole group = 15120 / 210
= 72 marks

300 Years contains ‘1’ odd day.
93 Years = 23 leap years + 70 ordinary years
= (46 + 70) odd days
= 116 odd days
= 4 odd days
No. of days upto 1st April, 1994
31 + 28 + 31 + 1 = 91 days [0 odd days]
Total odd days = (0 + 1 + 4 + 0) = 5
Day on 1st April is (Sunday + 5) = Friday
The fridays fall on = 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
The Sundays fall on = (1+2), (8+2), (15+2), (22+2), (29+2)
=3,10,17,24,31 (April have only sundays)
300 Years contains ‘1’ odd day.
93 Years = 23 leap years + 70 ordinary years
= (46 + 70) odd days
= 116 odd days
= 4 odd days
No. of days upto 1st April, 1994
31 + 28 + 31 + 1 = 91 days [0 odd days]
Total odd days = (0 + 1 + 4 + 0) = 5
Day on 1st April is (Sunday + 5) = Friday
The fridays fall on = 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
The Sundays fall on = (1+2), (8+2), (15+2), (22+2), (29+2)
=3,10,17,24,31 (April have only sundays)

Question 158 
If the side of the square increases by 40%, then the area of the square increases by
60 %  
40 %  
196 %  
96 % 
Question 158 Explanation:
Area of square =a^{2} a is length of side
The area of a side increased by 40%.
Let assume side = 100 then Area = 10,000
Side increased by 40% = 140
Then Area = 140 × 140 = 19600
Area of square increase =196001000010000100=96%
Let assume side = 100 then Area = 10,000
Side increased by 40% = 140
Then Area = 140 × 140 = 19600
Area of square increase =196001000010000100=96%

Question 170 Explanation:
The difference is 6, 18, 36, 60.
These are multiples of 6 i.e.,
6 = 6 × 1
18 = 6 × 3
36 = 6 × 6
60 = 6 × 10
→ The order is 1, 3, 6, 10, next one is 15. Like 1, 1+2, 1+2+3, 1+2+3+4, 1+2+3+4+5.
→ Next multiple = 6 × 15 = 90
→ 120 + 90 = 210
These are multiples of 6 i.e.,
6 = 6 × 1
18 = 6 × 3
36 = 6 × 6
60 = 6 × 10
→ The order is 1, 3, 6, 10, next one is 15. Like 1, 1+2, 1+2+3, 1+2+3+4, 1+2+3+4+5.
→ Next multiple = 6 × 15 = 90
→ 120 + 90 = 210

4  
15/2  
15/4  
6 
Question 172 Explanation:
The Avg of first 10 numbers = 4.5
Total observations =104.5=45
The Avg of next 30 members = 3.5
Total observations = 30 × 3.5 = 105
40 members total observations = 45 + 105 = 150
Avg. of 40 members observation = 150/40 = 15/4
Total observations =104.5=45
The Avg of next 30 members = 3.5
Total observations = 30 × 3.5 = 105
40 members total observations = 45 + 105 = 150
Avg. of 40 members observation = 150/40 = 15/4

16, 40  
20, 50  
28, 70  
32, 80 
Question 188 Explanation:
x/y = 2/5
⇒ x = (2 /5 )y (1)
(x+16)/(y+16)= 1/ 2
2 x + 3 2 = y + 1 6
Put value of ′ x ′ from eqn.(1) into above eqn.
2 ( (2 /5) y ) + 3 2 = y + 1 6
4 y + 160 = 5 y + 8 0
y = 80
Put value of ′ y ′ in eqn.(1)
x = (2/5) × 80
x = 3 2
⇒ x = (2 /5 )y (1)
(x+16)/(y+16)= 1/ 2
2 x + 3 2 = y + 1 6
Put value of ′ x ′ from eqn.(1) into above eqn.
2 ( (2 /5) y ) + 3 2 = y + 1 6
4 y + 160 = 5 y + 8 0
y = 80
Put value of ′ y ′ in eqn.(1)
x = (2/5) × 80
x = 3 2

The above code following 2 conditions
1. character1
2. Firs position is replaced with last position
A1= Z and placed in last
E1= D placed in second last
I1=H placed in third last
O1=N placed in fourth last
S1=T placed in first position
The same order will follow for 'BFJPV'
B1= A placed in last

Question 201 
What is the exact equivalent discount of three successive discounts of 10%, 15% and 20% by sale of an article?
35.8%  
38.5%  
35.5%  
38.8%

Question 201 Explanation:
Single equivalent discount for successive discounts of 10% and 15%.
= (10+15 (15*10)/100)%
= 23.5%
Single equivalent discount for 23.5% and 20%
=(23.5+20(23.5*20)/100)%
=38.8%
= (10+15 (15*10)/100)%
= 23.5%
Single equivalent discount for 23.5% and 20%
=(23.5+20(23.5*20)/100)%
=38.8%
Question 202 
If 3% of (a + b) = 7% of (ab) and 5% of (a – b) = 4% of (ab) then what percentage of b is a?
47/23 %  
23/47 %  
4700/23 %  
2300/47 % 
Question 203 
The sum of a number and its inverse is –4. The sum of their cubes is:
52  
52  
64  
64 
Question 203 Explanation:
Given : a + 1/a =  4
Find: a^3 + (1/a)^3
Solution: a + 1/a = 4
Take cube on both sides
(a + 1/a)^3 = (4)^3
a^3 + (1/a)^3 + 3*a* 1/a (a+1/a) = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3 + 3(a+1/a) = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3  12 = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3 =  64 + 12
a^3 + (1/a)^3 = 52
Find: a^3 + (1/a)^3
Solution: a + 1/a = 4
Take cube on both sides
(a + 1/a)^3 = (4)^3
a^3 + (1/a)^3 + 3*a* 1/a (a+1/a) = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3 + 3(a+1/a) = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3  12 = 64
a^3 + (1/a)^3 =  64 + 12
a^3 + (1/a)^3 = 52
