- 7, 4, 5, 9, ?, 52.5, 160.5
1720111319Option B

7, 4, 5, 9, ?, 52.5, 160.5

7 × 0.5 + 0.5 = 3.5 + 0.5 = 4

4 × 1 + 1 = 4 + 1 = 5

5 × 1.5 + 1.5 = 7.5 + 1.5 = 9

9 × 2 + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20 - 210, 209, 213, 186, 202, ?
8855664477Option E

210, 209, 213, 186, 202, ?

210 – l3 = 209

209 + 22 = 213

213 – 33 = 186

186 + 42 = 202

202 – 53 = 202 – 125 = 77 - 2, 9, 30, ?, 436, 2195, 13182
105100115109112Option A

2, 9, 30, ?, 436, 2195, 13182

2 × 1 + 1 × 7 = 9

9 × 2 + 2 × 6 = 30

30 × 3 + 3 × 5 = 105

105 × 4 + 4 × 4 = 436

436 × 5 + 5 × 3 = 2195 - 656, 352, 200, 124, 86, ?
5260446756Option D

656, 352, 200, 124, 86, ?

656/2 + 24 = 328 + 24 = 352

352/2 + 24 = 176 + 24 = 200

200/2 + 24 = 100 + 24 = 124

124/2 + 24 = 62 + 24 = 86

86/2 + 24 = 43 + 24 = 67 - 2, 3, 11, 38, 102, ?
202222227230215Option C

2, 3, 11, 38, 102, ?

2 + l^3 = 2 + 1 = 3

3 + 2^3 = 3 + 8 = 11

11 + 3^3 = 11 + 27 = 38

38 + 4^3 = 38 + 64 = 102

102 + 5^3 = 102 + 125 = 227 - A mother and a daughter working together can complete a work in 4 days. But if the mother works alone she can complete the work in 6 days. Both of them worked for one day and then the mother had to leave. How long will the daughter take to complete the remaining work ?
5 days11 days13 days9 days3 daysOption D

According to the question,

(M + D)’s one day’s work = 1/4

Remaining work = 3/4

M’s one day’s work = 1/6

D’s one day’s work = 1/4 – 1/6 = 1/12

Now, 1/12 th of the work is done by the daughter in 1 day 3/4 th of the work will be done by daughter in

(12 * 3)/4

= 9 days - Shatabdi Express has a capacity of 500 seats of which 10% are in the Executive class and the rest being chair cars. During one journey, the train was booked to 85% of its capacity. If Executive class was booked to 96% of its capacity, then how many chair car seats were empty during that journey ?
7366816254Option A

Seats in executive class = 50

Seats in chair car = 450

Booking seats in total = 425

Booking in executive class = 48

Booking in chair class = (425 – 48) = 377

Empty seats in chair class = 450 – 377 = 73 - Raj purchased an office bag with a price tag of Rs 600 in a sale where 25% discount was being offered on the tag price. He was given a further discount of 10% on the amount arrived at after giving usual 25% discount. What was the final amount paid by Raj ?
Rs.410Rs.300Rs.444Rs.405Rs.355Option D

Final amount after giving successive discounts of 25% and 10%

= 600 × 0.75 × 0.9

= Rs. 405 - Abhijit invested in three schemes A, B and C the amounts in the ratio of 2 : 3 : 4 respectively. If the schemes offered interest at 20 p.c.p.a., 16 p.c.p.a. and 15 p.c.p.a. respectively, what will be the respective ratio of the amounts after one year ?
45:83:10152:85:11561:55:3256:80:9960:87:115Option E

Let Abhijit invested Rs. 2x, Rs. 3x and Rs. 4x in three schemes A, B and C respectively.

The required ratio

= 2x × 120/100 : 3x × 116/100 : 4x × 115/100

= 2 × 120 : 3 × 116 : 4 × 115

= 60 : 87 : 115 - A card is drawn from a well shuffled pack of 52 cards. Find the probability of non-face card of black colour.
5/197/111/125/134/17Option D

Total number of black card out of 52 cards = 13 + 13

= 26

Number of face cards in each suits namely spades and clubs = 3 + 3 = 6

Therefore, total number of non-face card of black colour out of 52 cards = 26 – 6 = 20

Required Probability = 20/52

= 5/13
