    In 24 kg of apples,  water is 70%, so pulp is 30% = 30% of 24kg = 7.2 kg
    Let total of x kg dried apples is to be obtained from 24 kg of fresh apples.
    So in this x kg dried apples, 96% should be pulp to have 4% water. So
    96% of x = 7.2 kg
    Solve, x = 7.5 kg

    B) 8 km/hr
    C) 6 km/hr
    D) 10 km/hr
    E) 12 km/hr
    View Answer
      Option A
    Solution
    :
    Speed of boat Q in still water = 2x km/hr, then of boat P = x km/hr.
    Let speed of current = y km/hr
    So
    45/(x + y)  + 45/(x – y)  = 20
    And also
    45/(2x + y)  + 45/(2x – y)  = 8
    Solve both equations, y = 3 km/hr
  4. On selling rice for Rs 120 per kg, a shopkeeper incurs a loss of 10%. What will be the amount of rice sold, if there was a net loss of Rs 40?
    A) 5 kg

    E) 4.5 kg
    View Answer
      Option D
    Solution
    :
    10% of total CP = Rs 40
    So 100% = Rs 400, means total CP = Rs 400
    So SP = 400 – 40 = Rs 360
    So total rice sold at this price = 360/120 = 3kg  
  5. Can A contains 108 l of milk of milk and water in ratio 7 : 1. Another can B contains milk and water in ratio 6 : 1. If the mixtures of both the cans are mixed in another can, the respective ratio becomes 13 : 2. Find the amount of new mixture formed?

    By rule of allegation:
    (108 l)………..…………..(x l)
    1/8………………………1/7
    …………..……2/15
    1/7*15………………….1/8*15
    So ratio is 1/7*15 : 1/8*15 = 8 : 7
    So 108/x = 8/7
    Solve, x = 94.5 l
    So total mixture formed is 108 + 94.5 = 202.5 l
  6. A letter is chosen at random from ‘ASPIRANTSZONE’. What is the probability that it is a vowel?

    Solution:
    When he uses 750 gms instead of 1000 gms. He makes a profit of
    (1000-750)/750 × 100 = 100/3%
    Let on CP he gains x%.
    So using successive formula:
    100/3 + x + (100/3 * x)/100 = 60
    Solve x = 20 %
    Now CP is Rs 12. Profit % is 20 %
    Find SP.
    SP = 120% of 12 = Rs 14.4 per kg.

    (6800-x)*12*5/100 = x [ (1 + 10/100)<sup>2</sup> – 1] + 678
    68*12*5 – 60x/100 = 21x/100 + 678
    Solve, x = Rs 4200
    So in scheme A = 6800-4200 = Rs 2600
  9. Ratio of age of A 3 years hence to C 4 years hence is 6 : 7. Age of B is 9 years greater than the age of A and the ratio of age of B 2 years ago to that of C 8 years ago is 4 : 3. Find the sum of all of A, B and C’s present ages.

    D) 108
    E) 113
    View Answer
          Option E

    (A+3)/(C+4) = 6/7
    B = 9 + A
    (B-2)/(C-8) = 4/3
    Solve all, A = 33, B = 42,  = 38
  10. A and B started a business by investing Rs 2400 and Rs 2000 respectively. After 6 months A added Rs 900 while B added Rs 700 to their respective investments. If after a year, out of total profit share of A is Rs 2500 more than the share of B, find the total profit.

    24 + 33 : 20 + 27
    57 : 47
    So (57-47)/(57+47) * x = 2500
    Solve, x = Rs 26000

      Let avg expenditure in case I =x
      thus total expenditure= no of student*avg expenditure=420*x — (i)
      when 100 more students join, new avg= (x-25)
      total no. of students=520
      hence new total expentiture= 520*(x-25) –(ii)
      it is given that the expenses of the mess increase by Rs 500
      which means that,(ii) -(i)=500
      520*(x-25) – 420*x=500
      solve it 100x =500 +520*25
      x=135
