ANSWERS KEY AND SLUTION:

1(d) This can never happen at 99! number of zeroes is 22 and at 100! the number of zeroes is 24.
2(a)

3(B)Explanation:
2520 = 7x3^2x2^3x5
The value of n would be given by the value of the number of 7s in 50!
This value is equal to (50/7) + 50/49)= 7+1 = 8

4(B)Explanation:
Let the smaller number be x. Then larger number = (x + 1365).
so  x + 1365 = 6x + 15
=>5x = 1350
=> x = 270
Smaller number = 270.

5(C)Explanation:
Sum of digits = (5 + 1 + 7 + x + 3 + 2 + 4) = (22 + x), which must be divisible by 3.
x = 2.

6(A)Explanation:
Let Sn =(1 + 2 + 3 + ... + 45). This is an A.P. in which a =1, d =1, n = 45.
Sn = n/2 [2a + (n - 1)d] = 45/2 x [2 x 1 + (45 - 1) x 1]
=> (45/2 x 45)= (45 x 23)
= 45 x (20 + 3)
= 45 x 20 + 45 x 3
= 900 + 135
= 1035.
Shorcut Method:
Sn = n(n + 1)/2 = 45(45 + 1)/2 = 1035.

7(D)Explanation:
(Local value of 7) - (Face value of 7) = (70000 - 7) = 69993

8(B)Explanation:
29 as remainder is divided by 8 than remainder is 5

9(C)Explanation:
(x^n + 1) will be divisible by (x + 1) only when n is odd.
so (67^67 + 1) will be divisible by (67 + 1)
(67^67 + 1) + 66, when divided by 68 will give 66 as remainder.

10(D)Explanation:
Required numbers are 24, 30, 36, 42, ..., 96
This is an A.P. in which a = 24, d = 6 and l = 96
Let the number of terms in it be n.
Then tn = 96    a + (n - 1)d = 96
=>24 + (n - 1) x 6 = 96
=> (n - 1) x 6 = 72
=> (n - 1) = 12
=> n = 13
Required number of numbers = 13.

Note : Solution will be provided within an hour. you can give your answer in comment section.

ANSWER AND SOLUTION:

1(B)Explanation :
(a-b)^2=a^2-2ab+b^2
so (p - q)^2 = p^2 - 2pq + q^2
(p - q)^2 = (p^2 + q^2)- 2pq
6^2 = 116 - 2pq
36 = 116 - 2pq
2pq = 80
pq = 40

2(B)Explanation:
Let the price of a saree and a shirt be Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.
Then, 2x + 4y = 1600 .... (i)
and x + 6y = 1600 .... (ii)
Divide equation (i) by 2, we get the below equation.
=> x +  2y =  800. --- (iii)
Now subtract (iii) from (ii)
x +  6y = 1600  (-)
x +  2y =  800
----------------
4y =  800
----------------
Therefore, y = 200.
Now apply value of y in (iii)
=>  x + 2 x 200 = 800
=>  x + 400 = 800
Therefore x = 400
Solving (i) and (ii) we get x = 400, y = 200.
so  Cost of 12 shirts = Rs. (12 x 200) = Rs. 2400.

3(B)Explanation:
a^2 + b^2+c^2 = 2(a-b-c)-3
a^2 + b^2+c^2-2(a-b-c)+3=0
a^2 + b^2+c^2-2a+2b+2c+1+1+1=0
(a^2+1-2a)+ (b^2+1+2b)+(c^2+1+2c)= 0
(a-1)^2+(b+1)^2+(c+1)^2= 0
so a = 1, b = -1, c = -1
so 2a - 3b + 4c = 2x1 - ((3x(-1)) + 4x(-1)
= 2 +3 - 4
= 5 - 4
= 1

4(C)Explanation :
Let x buckets of water be required ,if the capacity of the bucket is reduced to two-fifth
More buckets, less capacity (Indirect proportion)
Hence we can write as
Capacity  1 : 2/5 } :: x : 25
1×25 = 2/5×x
25 = 2x/5
x=25×5/2 = 62.5
i.e., 62.5 buckets are needed

5(C)Explanation:
Let C's share = Rs. x
Then, B's share = Rs. x/4 ,   A's share = Rs.(2/3 x x/4) = Rs. x/6
so, x/6 + x/4 + x = 1360
=>17x/12 = 1360
=>  x =1360 x 12/17 = Rs. 960
Hence, B's share = Rs. (960/4) = Rs. 240.

6( A)Explanation :
Let the number of notes of each denomination be x
Then, x + 5x + 20x = 312
=> 26x = 312
=> x = 312/26 = 12
the total number of notes that he has = 3x = 3 × 12 = 36

7(D)Explanation:
b-[b-(a+b)-{b-(b-a+b)}+2a]
=b-[b-a-b-{b-(2b-a)}+2a]
=b-[-a-{b-2b+a}+2a]
=b-[-a-{-b+a}+2a]
=b-[-a+b-a+2a]
=b-[-2a+b+2a]
=b-b
=0

8(D)Explanation :
Let n be the total number of children.
More children, less notebooks(Indirect proportion)
If the number children = n, number of books each child will get =  n/8
If the number children = n/2, number of books each child will get = 16
Hence we can write as
children  n : n/2 } :: 16 : n/8
n×n/8 = n/2×16
n/8 = 16/2 = 8
n = 8×8 = 64
Then, total number of notebooks those were distributed = n×n/8 = 64×64/8 = 64×8=512

9(C)Explanation:
= 2(3)-3(5)+(3*5) + 2(5)-3(3)+(5*3)
= 6-15+15+10-9+15 = 31-9 = 22

10(A)Explanation :
Let savings in National Savings Certificate = x
and savings in Public Provident Fund = (180000 - x)
1/3 x = 1/2(180000-x)
2x = 3(180000-x)
2x = 540000-3x
5x = 540000
x=540000/5 = 108000
Savings in Public Provident Fund = (180000 - 108000) = 72000

A. 12
B. 5
C. 7
D. 9

ANSWER AND SOLUTION :

1(A)Explanation:
Total number of biscuits = 1*8+2*6+3*4+4*2= 8 + 12 + 12 + 8 = 40
Average number of biscuits = 40/10= 4

2(C)Explanation:
The sixth number = 6*32 + 6 * 37-11*35
= 192 + 222 - 385
= 29

3(C)Explanation:
Total runs required to win the match = 20 * 7.2 = 144
Runs scored in 15 over = 15 * 6 = 90
Runs required in 5 overs = 144 - 90 = 54
Required run rate = 54/5 = 10.8

4(B)Explanation:
Fifth integer = 9*32 - 4*26 - 4*8
= 288 - 104 - 112
= 72

5(B)Explanation:
Let avrage run of 1 innings = x
Total runs of 11 innings = 11x
Score of 12th innings = 90
Average run of 12 innings = x=5
Total runs of 12 innings = 12(x+5)
12(x+5) - 11x = 90
12x + 60 - 11x = 90
x = 30
Thus, average run after the 12th innings = 30+5= 35

6(C)Explanation :
Let the monthly income of A = a
monthly income of B = b
monthly income of C = a
a+b=2×5050---------(Equation1)
b+c=2×6250---------(Equation2)
a+c=2×5200---------(Equation3)
(Equation 1) + (Equation 3) - (Equation 2)
=>a+b+a+c-(b+c)=(2×5050)+(2×5200)-(2×6250)
=> 2a = 2(5050 + 5200 - 6250)
=> a = 4000
=> Monthly income of A = 4000

7 (D)Explanation :
Let Kiran's weight = x. Then
According to Kiran, 65 < x < 72 ------------(equation 1)
According to brother, 60 < x < 70 ------------(equation 2)
According to mother, x = 68 ------------(equation 3)
Given that equation 1,equation 2 and equation 3 are correct. By combining these equations,
we can write as
65<x=68
That is x = 66 or 67 or 68
average of different probable weights of Kiran = (66+67+68)/3=67

8( B)Explanation:
Required average =  (67 x 2 + 35 x 2 + 6 x 3)/(2+2+3)
= (134 + 70 + 18)/7
= 222/7
= 31  5/7 years.

9(B)Explanation :
Average marks of batch1 = 50
Students in batch1 = 55
Total marks of batch1=55×50
Average marks of batch2 = 55
Students in batch2 = 60
Total marks of batch2=60×55
Average marks of batch3 = 60
Students in batch3 = 45
Total marks of batch3=45×60
Total students = 55 + 60 + 45 = 160
Average marks of all the students = ((55×50)+(60×55)+(45×60))/160
=(275+330+270)/16 = 875/16=54.68

10(C)Explanation :
(3+11+7+9+15+13+8+19+17+21+14+x)/12 =12
=>137+x/12=12
=> 137 + x = 144
=> x = 144 - 137 = 7
