    3
    2
    4
    5
    1
    Option A
    Let after x minutes pipe B is closed
    (1/8 + 1/12)*x + (1/8)*(6 -x) = 1
    x= 3 minutes

     

  2. On pipe P is 4 times faster than pipe Q and takes 45 minutes less than pipe Q. In what time the cistern is full if both the pipes are opened together?
    20
    18
    16
    12
    14
    Option D
    Let P takes x minutes to fill the tank alone.
    Q will take 4x minutes to fill the tank
    4x – x = 45, x = 15
    So P will take 15 minutes and Q will take 60 minutes to fill the tank.
    (60*15)/(75) = 12 minutes

     

  3. The sum of the age of mother and daughter is 100 years. 5 years ago their age were in the ratio of 2:1. The ratio of the age of daughter and mother after 10 years.

    5:7
    2:1
    Option B
    M + D = 100 and (M – 5)/(D -5) = 2/1
    we get D = 35 and M = 65.
    After 10 years ratio = 45:75 = 3:5

     

  4. Sahil purchased an article for Rs. 8400 and sold it for a loss of 5%. From that money he purchased another article and sold it for a gain of 5%. What is the overall gain or loss?

    CP = 7980
    SP = 7980 * 105/100 = 8379
    Difference = 8400 – 8379 = 21
    Loss of Rs.21
