6. In Village B 40% are male. From that 20% of male are literate and 30% of male literates are degree holders. There are 840 male literates are non-degree holders .Find the total population in village B.
18000
12000
10000
15000
21000
Option D
Let us consider x is total number of literates
70x/100 = 840
x=1200
y be the total number of male
20y /100 = 1200
y=6000
z be the total number of population
40z/ 100 = 6000
z=15000

7. Four years ago the ratio of father’s age to son’s age was 8:1 and ratio of present age of mother and son is 4:1. If the sum of present ages of mother and son is 4 years more than the father’s present age, find father’s present age.
36 years
44 years
48 years
42 years
30 years
Option A
Let present age of father, mother and son be x, y and z. ( x – 4)/ (Z – 4) = 8/ 1
=> 𝑥 − 8𝑧 = −28 − − − −(1)
y /z = 4/ 1 => 𝑦 = 4𝑧 − − − −(2)
y + z = 4 + x y + z − x = 4 − − − −(3)
Solve the above three equation,
x=36 years, y=32 years, z=8 years
Father’s age=36 years

8. A water tank is filled by a pipe P alone in 30 minutes and by pipe Q alone in 40 minutes. Pipe R can empty the same tank in 25 minutes. If all the three pipes are opened together, how long will they take to fill the tank ?
48( 6/ 17) minutes
42( 7/ 12) minutes
55( 3/ 8) minutes
45( 1/ 10) minutes
54( 6/ 11) minutes
Option E
Part of tank filled by P in 1 minute = 1 /30
Part of tank filled by Q in 1 minute = 1/ 40
Part emptied by R in 1 minute = 1 /25
Tank filled by (P + Q + R) in 1 minute = 1/ 30 + 1 /40 – 1 /25
= [20 + 15 – 24]/ 600
= 11 /600
11 /600 part is filled in = 1 minute
Full tank is filled in = 600 /11
= 54( 6/ 11) minutes

9. Lawrence invests Rs.12000 as fixed deposit in a bank at the rate of SI 8% per annum. But due to some needs he has to withdraw the entire money after 4 years, for which the bank allowed him a lower rate of interest.

8%
3%
7%
5%
2%
Option C
P=12000
R=8
T=6
(12000 × 8 × 6)/ 100 − (12000 × 4 × R) /100 = 2500
=>480R=5760-2500
=>480R=3260
=>R=6.79 == 7%
