4 days
3 days
5 days
6 days
8 days
Option C
Efficiency ratio of men and women = 2 : 1
total work = 4 * 2 * 15 = 120
days required = 120/ 6 * 2 + 12 * 1 = 5 days

2. If simple interest earned on a certain sum of money at certain rate of interest after 5 years is 2/7 times the amount earned on the same sum of money after 5 years, then what is the rate interest ?
10%
6%
12%
8%
15%
Option D
Let amount = 7x
SI = 2x
P = 7x – 2x = 5x
rate of interest = 2x * 100/5x * 5 = 8%

3. Average of 12 numbers is 60. If average of first six and last four numbers is 70 and 50 respectively and ratio of seventh and eighth number is 3 : 2, then find the 8th number ?
50
40
80
70
75
Option B
Total 12 numbers = 12 * 60 = 720
total of first six numbers = 70 * 6 = 420
total of last four numbers = 50 * 4 = 200
8th number = (720 – 420 + 200) 2/5 = 100 * 2/5 = 40

4. Sanjay saves 25% of his monthly income. If his monthly expenditure is increased by 40% while his monthly savings remain same, then find the percentage increase in his monthly income ?
36%
40%
28%
30%
40%
Option D
Let income of Sanjay = 100x
savings = 100x * 25/100 = 25x
expenditure = 100x – 25x = 75x
increased expenditure = 75x * 140/100 = 105x
income = 105x + 25x = 130x
% increased income = 130x – 100x/100 * 100 = 30%

5. 490 ml of mixture contains milk and water in the ratio of 4 : 3 respectively. If 140 ml of mixture is taken out and 50 ml of water is added, then what is the ratio of milk to water in final mixture ?
2 : 3
4 : 5
3 : 2
1 : 1
2 : 5
Option D
Quantity of milk = 490 * 4/7 = 280
quantity of water = 490 * 3/7 = 210
140 ml of mixture is taken out,
(280 – 140 * 4/7)/(210 – 140 * 3/7 + 50) = 200/200 = 1 : 1
