3.25%
5.25%
4.25%
5.25%
6.25%
Option E
CP = 4/5 * 720 = Rs.576
SP = 720 * 85/100 = Rs.612
Profit percentage = (612 – 576)/576 * 100
= 6.25%

2. Kayal and Mayan together can complete a work in 30 days. If Mayan alone complete 20% of the work in 16 days. In how many days Kayal alone complete 75% of the work?
36
38
40
42
44
Option A
K+ M = 1/30
M = 5/1 * 16 = 80 days
K= 1/30 – 1/80
K = (8 – 3)/240 = 5/240
K = 1/48
K complete the 75% of the work in = 48 * ¾ = 36 days

3. Kiran and Mithun invests in the ratio of 2: 3 and the investment period of x months and y months respectively. If the total profit of the business is 3500 and Mithun’s share is Rs.1500, then what is the ratio of x: y?
2/1
3/4
2/5
4/7
2/9
Option A
profit = 3500 – 1500 = 2000
(2 * x)/(3 * y) = 2000/1500
2x/3y = 4/3
x/y = 2/1

4. Person S invests Rs.8000 in scheme A which offer simple interest at 15% per annum for x years. After x years S received the total amount is Rs.17600. Find the value of x
5
6
7
8
9
Option D
SI = (P * N * R)/100
SI = 17600 – 8000 = Rs.9600
9600 = (8000 * 15 * N)/100
N = 8 years

5. Ratio of the speed of Ship in still water to river is 4: 1. If the ship rowing the speed of 20 kmph in still water, then what is the ratio of the speed of ship rowing against the current and along the current?
3: 5
3: 7
4: 5
3: 8
3: 10
Option A
Speed of river = ¼ * 20 = 5 kmph
Speed of the ship along the river = 20 + 5 = 25 kmph
Speed of the boat against the river = 20 – 5 = 15 kmph
Required ratio = 15: 25
= 3: 5

6. A container of 120 liters contains oil and ghee. If 60 % of oil and 30 % of ghee is taken out, then the vessel will be half empty. Find the ratio of initial quantity of oil and ghee in the container?
5:6
2 : 1
1:6
7:4
2:0
Option B
O+ G = 120 -à (1)
(60/100) * O + (30/100) * G = 60
6O + 3G = 600 —> (2)
By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,
O = 80 liters, G = 40 liters
Required ratio = 80 : 40 = 2 : 1

7. How many 6 letter words with or without meaning can be formed out of the letters of the word, ‘INCUBATORS’, if repetition of letters is not allowed?
169006
350861
151200
713058
601427
Option C
The word contains 10 different letters.
Required number of words = 10p6
= > (10 * 9 * 8 * 7 * 6 * 5) = 151200

8. A guy drives 360 km from point A to B in 5 hours and backs to point B in 4 hours. If M is the average speed of the entire trip, then the average speed for the journey from B to A exceeds M by?
10 km/hr
56km/hr
89km/hr
45km/hr
16km/hr
Option A
The speed from A to B = 360/5 = 72 km/hr
The speed from B to A = 360/4 = 90 km/hr
The average speed of the entire trip = 2xy/(x+ y)
= > [(2 * 72 * 90) / 162]= > 80 km/hr
Required difference = 90 – 80 = 10 km/hr

9. A purse has the dollars of 10p, 50p and 1 rupee is in the ratio of 5: 4: 3. If there is Rs. 22 in all, then find the total number of 50p coins?
90
14
54
98
16
Option E
A purse has the coins of 10p, 50p and 1 rupee is in the ratio = 5: 4: 3 (5x, 4x, 3x)
22 = [(5x * 10) / 100] + [(4x * 50) / 100] + [(3x * 1)]22 = (50x/100) + (200x/100) + 3x
22 = (x/2) + 2x + 3x
44 = 11x
x = 4
The total number of 50p coins = 4x = 16

10. A express train crosses a pole in 25 sec and the same train crosses a platform of length 150 m in 40 sec. Find the length of the train?
567m
605m
845m
250 m
831m
Option D
Let the length of express be x,
Here, the speed of the train is equal. So,
(x / 25) = (x + 150) / 40
8x = 5x + 750
3x = 750
x = 250
The length of the train (x) = 250 m
