6
Option B
[10(x+5)+200]/[x+10] = 2*10
=> x = 5

44%
40%
57%

8. Ayisha’s age is 1/6th of her father’s age. Ayisha’s father’s age will be twice Shankar’s age after 10 years. If Shankar’s eight birthdays was celebrated two years before, then what is Ayisha’s present age.
6
4
7
3
5
Option E
Let Ayisha’s present age =x
Then, her father’s age =6x
Shankar’s age after 10 years =1/2(6x+10) =3x+5
Therefore, Shankar’s age after 10 years =8+12=20
3x+5=20
=>x=15/3=5

9. A train of length 250 m can cross a platform of length x m in seconds. Also it can cross a train of half of its length running with speed of 35 m/s in opposite direction in 5 seconds. Find the value of x.
100
125
150
135
144
Option C
(250+x)= 10*s —-(1)
(250+0.5*250) = 5*(s+35) —–(2)
On solving (1) and (2), we get
s= 40 m/s x = 10*40 â€“ 250
=> x = 150 m

10. A bag contains 6 apples, 8 bananas and (x+2) oranges. 2 fruits are drawn at random . Find the value of x if the probability that both fruits are oranges is 2/51.
2
4
1
5
3
Option A
Probability of selecting 2 oranges = (x+2)C2/(16+x)C2 Now, (x+2)C2/(16+x)C2 = 2/51
=> (x+2)(x+1)/(x+16)(x+15) = 2/51
=> 49x^2 + 91x â€“ 378 = 0
=> (x-2)(7x +27) = 0
=>x = 2
