Sol: 3,7,10,11,12,17
sum of alternates -1 equal to next alternate number.
3+10-1=12
7+11-1=17
so the next number will be 10+12-1=21
2. Cp of 4 calculators and 2 pencil is is 6200 what is the cost of ten calculators and five pencils
Sol: 4C+2P=6200-->2C+P=3100
SO 10C+5P=5(2C+P)=5(3100)=15,500 RS
3.12 men can complete work in 6 dayswhereas 10 men and 21 women take 3 days to finish the same work .in how many days can 12 women alone complete
Sol: 10 men's, 1 day work=10/(12*6)=5/36
If 21 women's, 1 day work= 21/W ,then
3[(5/36)+(21/W)]= 1 ,On solving, W=108
So, 12 women can complete the work in 108/12=9 days
4. 27^18/14 find the remainder value?

15. Four bells begin to toll together and then each one at intervals of 6 s, 7 s, 8 s and 9 s respectively. The
number of times they will toll together in the next 2 hr is:
Option 1 : 14 times Option 2 : 15 times Option 3 : 13 times Option 4 : 11 times
Sol: given each interval time is 6s.7s,8s,9s.
Now all together toll is nothing but lcm of all individuals i.e., lcm of6,7,8,9=504s
convert 2 hours in secondsi.e., 2hrs=2*60*60=7200s
now no.of times=total time in seconds/together lcm
i.e,7200/504=14
16. The students are in the ratio 2:3:5.if 20 students are increased in each batch the ratio changes to 4:3:7
The total number of students in the three batches before the increase was
Sol: the ratio is 2:3:5
let students 2x,3x,5x.
After 20 student are increased in each batch
now student will be 2x+20,3x+20,5x+20
now ratio is 4:3:7
now student will be 4x,3x,7x
2x+20=4x
x=10
students before increases : 20,30,50
17. sum of money doubles itself in 9 years, in how many years it will become 8 times itself?
Sol: Given, The Sum Of Money Doubles Itself In 9years
Initially Let The Sum Be X
After 9 Years It Becomes 2X(Now This Becomes The Initial For Next 9y)
After 18 Years It Becomes 4X(Now This Becomes The Initial For Next 9y)
After 27 Years It Becomes 8X.
So It Takes 27 Years To Get 8times Of The Initial Amount Invested.
18. What is the smallest four-digit number which when divided by 6, leaves a remainder of 5 and when
divided by 5 leaves a remainder of 3?
Option 1 : 1043 Option 2 : 1073 Option 3 : 1103 Option 4 : None of
these
Sol: ans is none of these because :
let us assume the smallest 4 digit number be 1000 if we divide it with 6 we get remainder 4 so to get a rem of 5 add 1 to it => 1001.
Then the general form of a number is 1001+6k for every positive integer value of k it always yields rem 5 when divided by 6,then by trail and error if we take k=2 then number is 1013 which when divided by 5 gives a rem of 3 so the right ans is 1013 which is none of these from options
19. A, B, C started a business with their investments in the ratio 1:3:5. After 4 months, A invested the same amount as before and B as well as C withdrew half of their investments. The ratio of their profits at the end of the year is:
Sol: Let their initial investments be x, 3x and 5x respectively. Then,
A : B : C = (x * 4 + 2x * 8) : (3x * 4 + 3x/2 * 8 ) : (5x * 4 + 5x/2 * 8)
= 20x : 24x : 40x = 5 : 6 : 10.
20. There are 10 yes or no questions. How many ways can these be answered
Sol: Each question can be answered either yes or no, so every question will have 2 possibilities
therefore, for 10 questions, 20 possibilities(2+2+2+....10(times)
21. If (a^4 - 2a^2b^2 + b^4)^x-1 = (a-b)^2x (a+b)^-2, then x equals to:
Sol: Taking log on both sides,
=>(x-1)log(a2-b2)^2=log[(a-b)^2x(a+b)^-2]
=>2(x-1)log(a2-b2)=2xlog(a-b)-2log(a+b)
Cancelling 2 on both sides,and expanding log(a2-b2) into log [(a+b)(a-b)]=>log(a+b)+log(a-b),
=>(x-1)[log(a+b)+log(a-b)]=xlog(a-b)-log(a+b)
=>xlog(a+b)-log(a-b)-log(a+b)+xlog(a-b)=xlog(a-b)-log(a+b)
=>xlog(a+b)=log(a-b)
x=log(a-b)/log(a+b).
22.  In an examination, 70% of students passed in physics, 65% in chemistry, 27% failed in both subjects. The percentage of students who passed is: Op 1: 66% Op 2: 62% Op 3: 69% Op 4: None of these
Sol: pass % in physics n(P)=70%
pass %in chemistry n(c)=65%
fail % in both=27%
pass %in any one or both=n(pUc)=73%
n(p intersection c)=n(p)+n(C)-n(pUc)=70+65-73=62%
23. If the simple interest on a sum at 4% per annum for 2 years is Rs. 80, then the compound interest on the same sum for the same period is: Op 1: Rs. 86.80 Op 2: Rs. 86.10 Op 3: Rs. 88.65 Op 4: Rs. 81.60
Sol: Amount from simple interest is 1000.then calculate the amount from this formula
a=p(1+r/100)^n.
so,1000(1+4/100)^2 =1081.6.
so, interest is 81.6.
24.Prabodh bought 30 kg of rice at the rate of Rs. 8.50 per kg and 20 kg of rice at the rate of Rs. 9.00 per kg. He mixed the two. At what price (App.) per kg should he sell the mixture in order to get 20% profit? Op 1: Rs. 9.50 Op 2: Rs. 8.50 Op 3: Rs. 10.50 Op 4: Rs. 12.00
Sol: 30 Kg->8.50*30=255
20kg -> 9*20 =180
so
50Kg=435; 1kg=435/50=8.7.
So CP of 1kg=8.7
now 20% profit it means -> (20/100)*8.7=1.74.
so the final ans is 8.7+1.74="10.44"

45. If x4 + 1/x4 = 47, then find the value of x3 + 1/x3 Op 1: 18 Op 2: 27 Op 3: 9 Op 4: 12
Sol: Lets add 2 two both sides of the equation
x^4+1/x^4 + 2 = 47+2
(x^2 + 1/x^2)^2 = 49 (This is because (x^2 +1/x^2)^2 = x^4+1/x^4+ 2)
x^2 + 1/x^2 = (49)^1/2
x^2 + 1/x^2 = 7
(x+1/x)^2=x^2+1/x^2+2=7+2=9
so x+1/x=3;
now (x+1/x)^3=x^3+3*x+3*1/x+1/x^3
3^3=x^3+3*3+1/x^3
so x^3+1/x^3=18

b+c -2bc =4/10
C,A
a(1-c) + c(1-a) =7/10
c+a -2ac=7/10
2(a+b+c) - 2(ab+bc+ca) = 18/10
a+b+c -ab -bc-ca =9/10
P(atleast one ) = 1 - P(none)
1 - [ (1-a)(1-b)(1-c)]

56. In how many ways can a number 6084 be written as a product of two different factors ?
Op 1: 27
Op 2: 26
Op 3: 13
Op 4: 14
Op 1: 27
Op 2: 26
Op 3: 13
Op 4: 14
Sol: First find the prime factors of 6084
2*3042
2*2*1521
2*2*3*507
2*2*3*3*169
2*2*3*3*13*13
2^2*3^2*13^2
Number of factors = (2+1)*(2+1)*(2+1) = 3*3*3 = 27
Using each of these factors, we can write 6084 as a product of 2 factors.
Half of these will remain same.
Let us take a simple example, 6
number of factors = 4
1,2,3,6
can be written as
1*6
2*3
We cant repeat 6*1 and 3*2 as they are already taken.
Hence only 2 ways.
Another example: take 9.
Number of factors = 3
1,3,9
can be written as
1*9 only.
Hence only 1 way.
So it turnsout ot be number of factors/2 if number of factors is even and
(number of factors-1)/2 if number of factors is odd.
Therefore: 27-1/2 = 26/2 = 13
Hence pick Op 3.
57.A lady gives dinner party to five guests to be selected from 9 friends .The number of ways of forming the party of 5,given that two of the friends will not attend the party together is
Sol: No of guests to be invited=5
Therefore,
No of ways forming the party=
=(9-2)c5*2c0+(9-2)c4*2c1
=7c5*1+7c4*2
=91
58. There are 5 letters and five addressed envelops. the number of ways in which all the letters can be put in wrong envelops is
Sol: We have N letters and N envelopes. The Letters can be put in the N envelopes in N! ways . We want to count the Number of "Derangements" ( The no. of ways that no letter goes into right envelope ).
N!( 1- 1/1! + 1/2! - 1/3! +..................+(-1)n 1/n! ) (this the the formula).
Here N = 5.
So When We put N = 5 in Formula we get 44 ans.
59. A five -digit number divisible by 3 is to be formed using numerals 0,1,2,3,4 and 5 without repetition. The total number of ways this can be done is
Sol: Total 5-digit Number formed by 0,1,2,3,4,5 (without repetition) are 5*5*4*3*2 = 600.
Number divisible by 3 means sum is divisible by 3.
so case 1. 5+4+3+2+1 = 15(exclude 0).
possibilities are = 5*4*3*2*1 = 120
case 2. 5+0+4+2+1 = 12(exclude 3).
possibilities are = 4*4*3*2*1 = 96.
so total answer = case1 + case2 = 216
60. Mark price of a good is 45 Rs. If seller sells it at 42 Rs as discount price and also want 5 % profit then what will be cost price?
Sol: sp=gain% * cp

cp= (42*100)/105 = 40
61. How many 4 digit even no. is possible by 1,2,3,4 if no one is repeated?
Sol: unit place can be 2 or 4 only (2 ways) rest 3 places can be filled in 3P3 = 3! = 6 ways total no. = 2*6 = 12
62. log3 9-log4 256+log5 125=?
Sol: log3 9 - log4 256 + log5 125
= log3 3^2 -log4 4^4 + log5 5^3
= 2*log3 3 - 4*log4 4 + 3*log5 5
= 2 - 4 + 3 [log x (x) = 1]
= 1
63. If a=2 & b=1 then log(a+b)(a^2-b^2)=?
Sol: if(a+b) is base then
log(a+b)(a^2-b^2)
= log(2+1) (2^2-1^2)
= log3 (3)
= 1
64. a coin is tossed 3 times by raju.what is probability that raju win all three time.

d)20
Sol: if one goes using 1st road,there are 5 roads to come back.....so 5*5,25 is the ans
66. Find next no. in sequence
8, 12, 24, 60, ?
8, 12, 24, 60, ?
Sol: every times difference increases three times.
4,12,36..,108
so the nxt number should be 60+108=168
67. probability of finding 9 of hearts from deck of 52 cards ?
Sol: there is only 1,9 of heart is present in a deck of 52 cards.
so probability of finding 9 of heart=1/52
68. log rootover(6) 1296= ?
Sol: log rootover(6) 1296
= log 6^.5 (6^4)

= 2*4*1
=8
69. A and B start together from the same point on a circular track and walk in the same direction till they both again arrive together at the starting point. A completes one circle in 224 s and B in 364 s. How many times will A have passed B?
Sol: LCM of 224,364=2912
so, A does 13 circles while B does 8 in 2912s.
Thus A crosses B 13 times.
70. Hemant and Ajay start a two-length swimming race at the same moment but from opposite ends of the pool. They swim in lane and at uniform speed, but Hemant is faster than Ajay.They first pass at a point 18.5 m from the deep end and having completed one length, each one is allowed to rest on the edge for exactly 45 seconds.After setting off on the return length, the swimmers pass for the second time just 10.5 m from the shallow end.How long is the pool?
Options:
a.55.5m, b.45m, c.66m, d.49m.
Sol: When they are meeting for the first time, sum of distance travelled by both swimmers is = d, if 'd' is the required length of the pool. Now when they are meeting for the second time (i.e. in their reverse journey), sum of the distance travelled by both swimmers = 3d.
If we exclude the waiting time, then time taken for first meet and second meet is in the ratio 1 : 3. Also distance travelled by each swimmer will be in the ratio 1 : 3 (as both are moving with constant but distinct speeds). So equating the ratio of distance travelled by one of the swimmer with the ratio 1 : 3, we get
18.5/(d + 10.5) = 1/3
or, d + 10.5 = 55.5
or, d = 45m. option b.
71. What is opposite meaning of-- DISCREET?
