  6. A man invested Rs. 8000 in a scheme giving 20% p.a. compound interest for two year. The interest received from this scheme is 400% more than the interest on some other amount from another scheme giving 8% S.I. for 4 year. Find the total amount invested in both schemes.
    11,000
    10,200
    12,500
    15,200
    12,120
    Option B
    CI earned in 2 years = 8000[(1+20/100)^3 – 1] – 8000
    = 3520
    Let amount invested in another scheme is Rs.P.
    3520 = 500% of P*8*4/100
    =>P – [3520*100]/[32*5]=>P = 2200
    Total investment = 8000+2200 = 10,200

     

  7. Radius of a cylinder is equal to the side of an equilateral triangle having area cm² and height of the cylinder is equal to the perimeter of the triangle. Then find the volume of cylinder.
    1782*pi
    1126*pi
    1536*pi
    1440*pi
    1661*pi
    Option C
    Radius of cylinder = side of equilateral Δ
    (3)^1/2/4 a^2 = 16(3)^1/2
    a² = 64
    =>a = 8 cm
    And, height of cylinder = 3 × 8 = 24 cm
    Volume of cylinder = πr²h
    = π × 8² × 24
    = 1536 π cm³

     

  8. Sum of present ages of A and B is 41. Age of A 2 year hence is equal to age of C, 1 year ago. Age of A, 4 year hence is equal to age of B 1year ago and ratio of present age of A and D is 3 : 4. Find the difference of age of C and D.
    2
    5
    7
    4
    3
    Option E
    A + B = 41 …(i)
    C -1 = A + 2
    C = A + 3
    And
    A + 4 = B – 1
    ⇒ B = A + 5 …(ii)
    From (i) + (ii)
    A = 18 years
    B = 18 + 5 = 23 years
    C = 18 + 3 = 21 years
    D = = 24 years
    Required difference = 24 – 21 = 3 years

     

  9. The surface area of a spherical part of a hemispherical bowl with a flat circular detachable cover, excluding the cover, is 616 sq cm. The area of the cover is 38.5 sq cm. What is the volume of the bowl?
    2636.12
    2302.15
    1928.61
    2172.12
    2032.69
    Option E
    2*pi*r*r = 616
    =>r^2 = 616/2*7/22
    =>r^2 = 98
    Volume = 2/3 *pi*98*7(2)^1/2 = 2032.69 cm^3

     

  10. In one litre of mixture of alcohol and water, 30% is water. The amount of alcohol that must be added to the mixture, so that the part of water in the mixture becomes 15%, is:
    1452
    1000
    1100
    1234
    1340
    Option B
    300/(1000+x)*100 = 15
    =>x = 1000 ml
