9. It takes 16 days for 48 women to complete a job that requires 16 men to complete in 24 days. 12 men initiated the

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 man-day.
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 man-days of work = 216 / 18 = 12 days.
Hence 1.

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.
