at random. What are the odds that the train produces for consecutive music tones of the same type? a) 1 in
16 B) 1 in 4 c) 1 in 8 d) 1 in 32
Solution: Initially it produces 10 sounds and the defect came and now it produces only 2
different sounds and consecutively so there are totally 2 sounds and we have to select on sound and the
probability is and it produces the same sound consecutively for 2 times so the probability becomes *

For two digit: 5*4 = 20 chances
For three digit: 5*4*3 = 60 chances
For four digit: 5*4*3*2 = 120 chances
For five digit: 5*4*3*2*1 = 120 chances

16. George and Mark can paint 720 boxes in 20 days. Mark and Harry in 24 days and Harry and George
in 15 days. George works for 4 days, Mark for 8 days and Harry for 8 days. The total number of boxes
painted by them is
One day work:
G+M = (1/20)*720 = 36 boxes;
M+H= (1/24)*720 = 30 boxes;
H+G = (1/15)*720 = 48 boxes.
2(G+M+H) = 36+30+48 = 114
(G+30) = 114 /2=57 boxes
G= 27 boxes.
Gs one day work is 27 boxes. So Gs four days work is 108 boxes
M+Hs one day work is 30 boxes. So M+Hs eight days work is 240 boxes.
So Total number of boxes painted = 108+240 = 348 boxes painted.

kmph. Her average speed is?
19.2 kmph

18. A merchant buys 20 kg of wheat of Rs.30 per kg and40 kg wheat at Rs.25 per kg. He mixed them and
sells one third of the mixture at Rs.26 per kg. The price at which the merchant should sell the remaining
mixture, So that he may earn a profit of 25 % in his whole outlay is
Cost price =20*30 + 40*25 = Rs.1600
Profit = 25 % of (1600) = Rs.400
Selling price = Rs.2000
One third of mixture is (1/3)*60 = 20 kg
Remaining mixture is 40 kg
2000 = 26*20 + 40*X;
X = Rs.37
19) The mean of three number is 10 more than the least of these number and 15 less than the greatest of
the Three. If the median of the three number is 5, then sum of the three is
Let X is the greatest value, Y be the Middle value and Z is the least value.
(X+Y+Z)/3 = 10+Z = X-15;
If Y=5, X=25, Z=0. So the sum of the three number is 30.
20. The water from one outlet, flowing at a constant rate, can fill the swimming pool in 9 hours. The
water from second outlet, flowing at a constant rate can fill up the same pool in approximately in 5 hours.
If both the outlets are used at the same time, approximately what is the number of hours required to fill
the pool?
Solution :
Let the first outlet be A
Let the second outlet be B
One hour work of A is 1/A i.e., 1/9
One hour work of B is 1/B i.e., 1/5
One hour work of Both A and B is 1/A + 1/B = 1/9 + 1/5 = 14/45.
So Time taken to fill the swimming pool is 45/14 hours i.e., 3hrs 3/14 mins

21. If 75 % of a class answered the first question on a certain test correctly, 55 percent answered the
second question on the test correctly, and 20 percent answered neither of the questions correctly, what
percentage answered both correctly?
P(A) = answered the first question correctly
P(B) = answered the second question correctly
P(A v B) =answered neither of the questions correctly
P(A U B) = answered first and second questions correctly
P(A U B) = 1 -P(A v B) = 80 %
P(A ^ B) = answered both the questions correctly
P(A ^ B) =P(A)+P(B)-P(A U B)
= 75 + 55 80
= 50 %

Read the following passage and answer Q 38- Q 40
At a stage like this in human civilisation, it is of utmost interest that nations coarse ignorance towards
one another decreases, people should start understanding a bit of histories of other cultures, other
countries and the resulting mentality developed. It is really fault of Englishmen because they expected
people to run the world as they wanted to, to international as well as political situations. We many a times
expect people to be the way we are and because of that nothing is made out of our actual kindness and
good intents. This could be corrected, not to be a very wide extent but to a certain limit if we knew global
history, even outlines of it, about the conditions, social and political, which have lead the country to shape
up as it has currently.
