It takes 16 days for 48 women to complete a job that requires 16 men to complete in 24 days. 12 men initiated the work and after 14 days, 12 women joined them. How many days will they together take to complete the job? A. 12 B. 21 C. 6 D. 24 E. 16 10. Where does p lie if pē < p? A. Between 1 and 0 B. Between 1 and 1 C. Between 0 and 1 D. It is always less than 0 E. It is always greater than 1 ANSWERS 1. Correct Answer: D Solution: The relative speed can be given as 12  10 = 2 km/h. So the leopard will catch the deer after 0.2/2 = 1/10 hour. Hence the distance covered by the deer before it is caught can be calculated as 10 * 1/10 = 1 km. Hence 4. Answers 2. Correct Answer: E Solution: Let the total amount of money they have be T And the respective shares of Paul, Quallis and Robert be P, Q and R. Now, P + Q + R = T  (1) and given that the amount is to be divided in the ratio of 2 : 3 : 7, the total share of P and Q is $1500 less than R, i.e., P + Q = R  1500  (2) From (1) and (2); P + Q = T  R  (3) Comparing equation (2) and (3) R  1500 = T  R; 2 R = 1500 + T; or R = (1500 + T) / 2  (4) But R's share is [7 / (2 + 3 + 7)] * T = (7/12) T  (5) From (4) and (5), (1500 + T) / 2 = (7/12) T 18000 = 14 T  12 T T = 9000. So total amount is $ 9000. P's share = [2 / (2 + 3 + 7)] * 900 = $1500. Hence 5. Answers 3) Correct Answer: B Solution: Speed in still water can be calculated as the actual speed upstream + the rate or speed of stream = 6 + 2 = 8 km/h. Hence 2. ANSWERS 4) Correct Answer: C Solution: Let x be the length and y be the breadth of the given rectangle. Now, given that, x = 6/5 y  (1) and 2 x + 2 y = 132  (2) Substituting x in (2) by results in (1), we get, 2 (6/5 y) + 2 y = 132; or 12/5 y + 2 y = 132. Multiplying both sides by 5, we get, 12 y + 10 y = 660; 22 y = 660 y = 30. Since x = 6/5 y, x = 6/5 * 30 = 36. Therefore, area = x * y = 36 * 30 = 1080 mē. Hence 3. ANSWERS 5) Correct Answer: D Solution: Let the cost of TV be x. So, the cost of refrigerator will be x  4200. Given, the ratio of the cost of the TV and refrigerator is 9 : 5 Therefore, cost of TV / cost of refrigerator = 9 / 5 or, x / (x  4200) = 9 / 5 5 x = 9 (x  4200) 4 x = 4200 * 9 x = 9450. So, the cost of refrigerator is x  4200 = 5250. Hence 4. ANSWERS 6) Correct Answer: D Solution: Percentage of people suffering from Diabetes = 40. Percentage of people suffering from Leprosy = 25. Percentage of people suffering from both, Diabetes and Leprosy = 10. The percentage of people suffering from either Diabetes or Leprosy = 40 + 25  10 = 65  10 = 55. Total percentage of people in the locality = 100. Hence the percentage of people suffering from neither of the diseases = 100  55 = 45. Hence 4. ANSWERS 7) Correct Answer: B Solution: Let the total number of items (balls, marbles and tops) in the bag be x. Given that the ratio of balls to marbles to tops is 20 : 4 : 6. Number of balls = 120. Now, Number of balls = [20 / (20 + 4 + 6)] * x Or, x = 120 * (30/20) = 180 Total number of items = 180 Number of tops = (6/30) * 180 = 36. Hence 2. ANSWERS 8) Correct Answer: A Solution: Let the actual price of the camera be $x. x  0.2 x = 100; or 0.8 x = 100; or x = $125. Hence 1 Answers 9) Correct Answer: A Solution: Total work = Number of men * Number of days = Number of women * Number of days. Or, 16 men * 24 days = 48 women * 16 days. Therefore, 48 women = (16 * 24) / 16 = 24 men; or 1 man is as efficient as 2 women are.(1). Now, 12 men work for 14 days. The remaining work, (16 * 24)  (12 * 14) = 216 manday. Since 12 women, that are equivalent to 6 men join the 12 men, effective strength = 12 + 6 = 18 men. Number of days to complete remaining 216 mandays of work = 216 / 18 = 12 days. Hence 1. ANSWERS 10) Correct Answer: C Solution: Given that pē < p. The first option is incorrect because if p lies between 1 and 0, pē will never be less than p. Statement 2 is also incorrect because for certain values of p (between  1 and 1), the value of pē may or may not be less than p. For example, if we take p = ( 0.6), the value of pē > p; whereas if we take p = 0 or 0.6, then the value of pē = p or pē < p. According to option 3, p > 0 but less than 1. This is the only range in which for every value of p, the value of pē is always less than p. Hence option 3 is the correct one. Advertisements
