Nine persons went to a hotel for taking their meals 8 of them spent Rs.12 each on their meals and the ninth spent Rs.8 more than the average expenditure of all the nine.What was the total money spent by them?
CorrectAnswer : B
Solution : Let the average expenditure of all nine be Rs.x
Then 12*8+(x+8)=9x or 8x=104 or x=13.
Total money spent = 9x=Rs.(9*13)=Rs.117.

When an amount was distributed among 14 boys, each of them got rs 80 more than the amount received by each boy when the same amount is distributed equally among 18 boys. What was the amount?
CorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Let the total amount be Rs. X the,
x – x = 80 ó 2 x = 80 ó x =63 x 80 = 5040.
14 18 126 63
Hence the total amount is 5040

A train starts full of passengers at the first station it drops 1/3 of the passengers and takes 280 more at the second station it drops one half the new total and takes twelve more .on arriving at the third station it is found to have 248 passengers. Find the no of passengers in the beginning?
CorrectAnswer : D
Solution : Let no of passengers in the beginning be x
After first station no passengers=(xx/3)+280=2x/3 +280
After second station no passengers =1/2(2x/3+280)+12
½(2x/3+280)+12=248
2x/3+280=2*236
2x/3=192
x=288
IncorrectAnswer : D
Solution : Let no of passengers in the beginning be x
After first station no passengers=(xx/3)+280=2x/3 +280
After second station no passengers =1/2(2x/3+280)+12
½(2x/3+280)+12=248
2x/3+280=2*236
2x/3=192
x=288

CorrectAnswer : B
Solution : Part of salary left=1(2/5+3/10+1/8)
Let the monthly salary be Rs.x
Then, 7/40 of x=1400
X=(1400*40/7)
=8600
Expenditure on food=Rs.(3/10*800)=Rs.2400

A can do a piece of work in 80 days. He works at it for 10 days B alone finishes the remaining work in 42 days. In how much time will A and B working together, finish the work?
CorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Work done by A in 10 days =(1/80*10)=1/8
Remaining work = (1 1/8) =7/ 8
Now,7/ 8 work is done by B in 42 days.
Whole work will be done by B in (42 x 8/7) = 48 days.
A’s 1 day’s work = 1/80 and B’s 1 day’s work = 1/48
IncorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Work done by A in 10 days =(1/80*10)=1/8
Remaining work = (1 1/8) =7/ 8
Now,7/ 8 work is done by B in 42 days.
Whole work will be done by B in (42 x 8/7) = 48 days.
A’s 1 day’s work = 1/80 and B’s 1 day’s work = 1/48

A train 150 m long is running with a speed of 68 kmph. In what time will it pass a man who is running at 8 kmph in the same direction in which the train is going?
CorrectAnswer : D
Solution : Speed of the train relative to man = (68 – 8) kmph
= (60* 5/18) m/sec = (50/3)m/sec
Time taken by the train to cross the man I
= Time taken by It to cover 150 m at 50/3 m / sec = 150 *3/ 50 sec = 9sec
IncorrectAnswer : D
Solution : Speed of the train relative to man = (68 – 8) kmph
= (60* 5/18) m/sec = (50/3)m/sec
Time taken by the train to cross the man I
= Time taken by It to cover 150 m at 50/3 m / sec = 150 *3/ 50 sec = 9sec

The length of a rectangle is twice its breadth. If its length is decreased by 5 cm and breadth is increased by 5 cm, the area of the rectangle is increased by 75 sq. cm. Find the length of the rectangle.
CorrectAnswer : A
Solution : Let breadth = x. Then, length = 2x. Then,
(2x – 5) (x + 5) – 2x * x = 75 <=> 5x – 25 = 75 <=> x = 20.
:. Length of the rectangle = 20 cm.
IncorrectAnswer : A
Solution : Let breadth = x. Then, length = 2x. Then,
(2x – 5) (x + 5) – 2x * x = 75 <=> 5x – 25 = 75 <=> x = 20.
:. Length of the rectangle = 20 cm.

Question 12 of 15
12. Question
1 pointsCorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Let original radius = R. Then, new radius = (150/100)R=(3R/2)
Original volume = (4/3)ÕR^{3}, New volume = (4/3)Õ(3R/2)^{3 }=(9ÕR^{3}/2)
Increase % in volume=((19/6)ÕR^{3})*(3/4ÕR^{3})*100))% = 237.5%
IncorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Let original radius = R. Then, new radius = (150/100)R=(3R/2)
Original volume = (4/3)ÕR^{3}, New volume = (4/3)Õ(3R/2)^{3 }=(9ÕR^{3}/2)
Increase % in volume=((19/6)ÕR^{3})*(3/4ÕR^{3})*100))% = 237.5%

I walk a certain distance and ride back taking a total time of 37 minutes. I could walk both ways in 55 minutes. How long would it take me to ride both ways?
CorrectAnswer : B
Solution : Let the distance be x km. Then,
( Time taken to walk x km) + (time taken to ride x km) =37 min.
( Time taken to walk 2x km ) + ( time taken to ride 2x km )= 74 min.
But, the time taken to walk 2x km = 55 min.
Time taken to ride 2x km = (7455)min =19 min.
IncorrectAnswer : B
Solution : Let the distance be x km. Then,
( Time taken to walk x km) + (time taken to ride x km) =37 min.
( Time taken to walk 2x km ) + ( time taken to ride 2x km )= 74 min.
But, the time taken to walk 2x km = 55 min.
Time taken to ride 2x km = (7455)min =19 min.

After getting 2 successive discounts, a shirt with a list price of Rs 150 is available at Rs 105. If the second discount is 12.55,find the first discount.
CorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Let the first discount be x%
Then,87.5% of (100x)% of 150= 105
87.5/100*(100x)/100*450=150=>105=>100x=(105*100*100)/(150*87.5)=80
x=(10080)=20
first discount = 20%
IncorrectAnswer : C
Solution : Let the first discount be x%
Then,87.5% of (100x)% of 150= 105
87.5/100*(100x)/100*450=150=>105=>100x=(105*100*100)/(150*87.5)=80
x=(10080)=20
first discount = 20%
