2. A fast typist can type some matter in 2 hours and a slow typist can
type the same in 3 hours. If both type combinely, in how much time will
they finish?
Answer : 1 hr 12 min
Explanation : The fast typist's work done in 1 hr = 1/2
The slow typist's work done in 1 hr = 1/3
If they work combinely, work done in 1 hr = 1/2+1/3 = 5/6
So, the work will be completed in 6/5 hours. i.e., 1+1/5 hours = 1hr 12
min
3. Gavaskar's average in his first 50 innings was 50. After the 51st
innings, his average was 51. How many runs did he score in his 51st
innings. (supposing that he lost his wicket in his 51st innings)
Answer : 101
Explanation : Total score after 50 innings = 50*50 = 2500
Total score after 51 innings = 51*51 = 2601
So, runs made in the 51st innings = 26012500 = 101
If he had not lost his wicket in his 51st innings, he would have scored
an unbeaten 50 in his 51st innings.

h = 7/2 = 3.5
7. What is the sum of all numbers between 100 and 1000 which are
divisible by 14 ?
Answer : 35392
Explanation : The number closest to 100 which is greater than 100 and
divisible by 14 is 112, which is the first term of the series which has
to be summed.
The number closest to 1000 which is less than 1000 and divisible by 14
is 994, which is the last term of the series.
112 + 126 + .... + 994 = 14(8+9+ ... + 71) = 35392
8. If s(a) denotes square root of a, find the value of s(12+s(12+s(12+
...... upto infinity.
Answer : 4
Explanation : Let x = s(12+s(12+s(12+.....
We can write x = s(12+x). i.e., x^2 = 12 + x. Solving this quadratic
equation, we get x = 3 or x=4. Sum cannot be ve and hence sum = 4.
9. A cylindrical container has a radius of eight inches with a height
of three inches. Compute how many inches should be added to either the
radius or height to give the same increase in volume?
Answer : 16/3 inches
Explanation : Let x be the amount of increase. The volume will increase
by the same amount if the radius increased or the height is increased.
So, the effect on increasing height is equal to the effect on
increasing the radius.
i.e., (22/7)*8*8*(3+x) = (22/7)*(8+x)*(8+x)*3
Solving the quadratic equation we get the x = 0 or 16/3. The possible
increase would be by 16/3 inches.

part, 2 is subtracted from the second part, 2 is multiplied by the
third part and the fourth part is divided by two, all result in the
same number.
Answer: 8, 12, 5, 20
Explanation: a + b + c + d =45; a+2 = b2 = 2c = d/2; a=b4; c =
(b2)/2; d = 2(b2); b4 + b + (b2)/2 + 2(b2) = 45;
15. I drove 60 km at 30 kmph and then an additional 60 km at 50 kmph.
