    A car driver leaves Delhi at 8:30 am and expects to reach a place 300 km from Delhi at 12:30 pm. At 10:30 am, he finds that he has covered only 40% of the distance. By how much he has to increase the speed of the car in order to keep up his schedule?
    60 kmph
    90 kmph
    15 kmph
    30 kmph

    1. Suraj

      SOl : ans 30 kmph
      Total D=300
      40% =120 km in 2 hours hence regular speed = 60 kmph
      Now has to cover 180 km in next 2 hour, hence new speed = 90 kmph
      hence increase =90-60=30 kmph

  19. Suraj

    A number is randomly chosen from 1 to 100(both included). WHat is the probability that it is divisible by 2,3 or 5?
    14/25
    17/25
    37/50
    71/100
    18/25

    1. Suraj

      Ans : 37/50
      Total numbers divisible by 2 = 100/2=50
      Total no divisible by 3=100/3=33
      total no divisible by 5=100/5=20
      numbers divisible by both 2 and 3= 100/(2*3)=16
      no divisible by both 3 and 5 =100/(3*5)=6
      no divisible by both 2 and 5=100/10=10
      numbers divisible by all 2,3 and 5 =100/(2,3,5)=3
      Hence required probability = 50+33+20-(16+6+10) + 3 =37/50

    a) 1620
    b) 1880
    c) 1700
    d) Cannot be determined

    1. ~ARYA~ఆర్య~ आर्य

      1034-940=94*20===1880

    2. Suraj

      Ans : b) 1880
      5% of the marks = 1034-940 = 94
      hence 100% = 94*100/5 = 1880

  31. Suraj

    C) 12
    D) 9

    1. Suraj

      Let total person be x+1 T
      otal toys =t
      ¼ t = 3* (3/4 t)/x
      =>x=9

    The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is:
    A) 15 B) 16 C) 18 D) 25

    1. Suraj

      Let CP of 20 article = RS 100
      Cp of 1 article = 5
      Hence Sp of 1 article = 125/100 *5 =25/4
      Now SP of x article = Rs 100
      So x = 100*4/25 = 16

        22-7====15
        15*6=90/5=18

      2. Suraj

        avg age now=22
        hence sum of ages of all=22*6=132
        youngest member is 7 years old
        means at the time of his birth everone in the family must be 7 years younger than now
        hence reduce 7*6=42 years from this total
        hence new total= 132-42
        =90
        new avg=90/5=18

    2. Suraj

      B:S = 7:1
      upstream effective speed = b-s = 7x-x = 6x
      acc to q 4.2/6x = 14/60 hr
      =>x = 42/14 = 3
      so speed of boat = 21 kmph and speed of stream = x = 3kmph s
      o to travel 17.6km downstream effective speed = 21+3 = 24 kmph
      so time = 17.6/24 = 2.2/3 hr = 2.2*60/3 = 44 min

    A number is randomly chosen from 1 to 100(both included). WHat is the probability that it is divisible by 2,3 or 5?
    14/25
    17/25
    37/50
    71/100
    18/25

    1. Suraj

      Ans : 37/50
      Total numbers divisible by 2 = 100/2=50
      Total no divisible by 3=100/3=33
      total no divisible by 5=100/5=20
      numbers divisible by both 2 and 3= 100/(2*3)=16
      no divisible by both 3 and 5 =100/(3*5)=6
      no divisible by both 2 and 5=100/10=10
      numbers divisible by all 2,3 and 5 =100/(2,3,5)=3
      Hence required probability = 50+33+20-(16+6+10) + 3 = 37/50

    Two places P and Q are 162 km apart. A train leaves P for Q and at the same time another train leaves Q for P. Both the trains meet 6 hrs after they start moving. If the train travelling from P to Q travels 8 km/hr faster than the other train, find the speed of the two trains.

      9.5…17.5

    2. Suraj

      total distance traveled= 162 km
      speed of p= x+8
      speed of q =x
      time taken = 6
      162/(x+x+8) =6
      q=9.5
      p=17.5

    A Contractor employed a certain number of workers to finish constructing a road in a certain scheduled time. Sometime later, when a part of work had been completed, he realised that the work would get delayed by three-fourth of the scheduled time, so he at once doubled the no of workers and thus he managed to finish the road on the scheduled time. How much work he had been completed, before increasing the number of workers?
    A) 10 %
    B) 14 2/7 %
    C) 20 %
