## 1.**A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. What is the length of the train?**

- 120 metres
- 180 metres
- 324 metres
- 150 metres

Answer: (d)

Speed = (60 x 5/18)m/sec = 50/3 m/sec.

Length of the train = (Speed x Time).

Length of the train = (50/3 x 9)m = 150 m.

**2. If 2994 ÷ 14.5 = 172, then 29.94 ÷ 1.45 = ?**

- 0.172
- 1.72
- 17.2
- 172

Answer: (c)

29.94/1.45 = 299.4/14.5

= (2994/14.5 x 1/10)

[Here, Substitute 172 in the place of 2994/14.5]

= 172/10

= 17.2

- 12.5 km/hr

*Answer*: (c)

Man’s rate in still water = (15 – 2.5) km/hr = 12.5 km/hr.

Man’s rate against the current = (12.5 – 2.5) km/hr = 10 km/hr.

- 28, 56
- 14, 42
- 7, 35
- 35, 14

*Answer*: (b)

Let the daughter’s present age be x.

The present age of father = 28+x

According to the question, the average age is 28.

Hence, (28+2x)/2 =28.

x =14.

Therefore, the daughter’s present age is 14 and the father’s present age is 42.

## 6. **If the length and breadth of a rectangle is doubled, what is the percentage change in the area of the rectangle?**

- 150
- 100
- 300
- 350

*Answer*: (c)

Let the initial length of the rectangle be l and breadth be b. Area = lb

New length = 2l

New breadth = 2b

New area = 4lb

Percentage change in area = ((4 lb – lb)/ lb) ×100 = 300%

## 7. **The speed of a car is 45 km/h. The distance traveled by car in 240 minutes is the same as the distance traveled by train in 25 minutes. What is the speed of the train in km/h?**

- 420 km/hr
- 330 km/hr
- 120 km/hr
- 432 km/hr

*Answer*: (d)

240 minutes = 240/60= 4 hours.

Distance traveled by car in 4 hours = 45×4 = 180 km.

Time taken by the train to travel 180 km = 25 minutes = 25/60 hours.

Speed of the train = Distance/ time = 180/ (25/60) = 432 km/hr.

## 8. **A 20-liter solution contains oil and kerosene in the ratio 3:5, replacing 4 liters of a mixture with 4 liters of kerosene. What will be the ratio of oil and kerosene?**

- 1/7
- 3/7
- 1/6
- 1/8

*Answer*: (b)

When 4 liters are taken out of 20l, the amount of oil in remaining 16 lt = 3/8×16 = 6. Hence the remaining 10 liters would be kerosene. Now an additional 4 liters of kerosene is added to the solution. So the total quantity of kerosene = 14 liters. Ratio of oil: kerosene = 6/14 = 3/7.

## 9. **In a group of 8 boys, 2 men aged at 21 and 23 were replaced, two new boys. Due to this the average cost of the group increased by 2 years. What is the average age of the 2 new boys?**

- 17
- 30
- 28
- 23

*Answer*: (b)

According to the given data, Average of 8 boys increased by 2, this means the total age of boys increased by 8×2 = 16 yrs.

So the sum of the ages of two new boys = 21+23+16 = 60. Average of these = 60/2 = 30.

*Answer*: (a)

CP = 30×75 + 20×70

= 2250 + 1400

= 3650

SP =80×(30+20) = 4000

Hence, Gain = 4000-3650 = 350
