24. A contractor agreeing to finish a work in 150 days, employed 75
men each working 8 hours daily. After 90 days, only 2/7 of the work
was completed. Increasing the number of men by ________ each
working now for 10 hours daily, the work can be completed in time.
**

A.140

B.150

C.59

D.100

**Answer:**
B

**Solution:**

One man’s one hour’s work = 2 / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) The remaining work
(5/7) has to be completed within 60 days, because the total number of
days allotted for the project is 150 days. So we get the equation (2 *
10 * x * 60) / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) = 5/7 where x is the number of men
working after the 90th day.

We get x = 225 Since we have 75 men already, it is enough to add only
150 men.

Before: One day work = 1 / 20 One mans one day work = 1 / ( 20 * 75)
Now: No. Of workers = 50 One day work = 50 * 1 / ( 20 * 75) The total
no. of days required to complete the work = (75 * 20)/50= 30 days.

Q17. A rich merchant had collected many gold coins. He did not want
anybody to know about them. One day, his wife asked, "How many gold
coins do we have?" After pausing a moment, he replied, "Well! If I
divide the coins into two unequal numbers, then 37 times the difference
between the two numbers equals the difference between the squares of
the two numbers.

" The wife looked puzzled. Can you help the merchants wife by finding
out how many gold R?
**

A.37

B.35

C.27

D.28

__ANS:__
A

__Explanation:__

*
37(x-y)=x^2-y^2. u no tht x^2-y^2=(x-y)(x+y).so (x-y) cancels on both
sides to give x+y=37.so sum of unequal halves=37 which is the req
answer.

Q23. A man was engaged on a job for 30 days on the condition that he
would get a wage of Rs. 10 for the day he works, but he have to pay a
fine of Rs. 2 for each day of his absence. If he gets Rs. 216 at the
end, he was absent for work for ... days.
**

A.20

B.8

C.7

D.10

__ANS:__
C

__Explanation: __
* *

*
The equation portraying the given problem is: 10 * x - 2 * (30 - x) =
216 where x is the number of working days. Solving this we get x = 23
Number of days he was absent was (30-23) = 7 days.

Q24. A contractor agreeing to finish a work in 150 days, employed 75
men each working 8 hours daily. After 90 days, only 2/7 of the work was
completed. Increasing the number of men by ________ each working now
for 10 hours daily, the work can be completed in time.
**

A.140

B.150

C.59

D.100

__ANS:__
B

__Explanation: __
* *

*
One mans one hours work = 2 / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) The remaining work
(5/7) has to be completed within 60 days, because the total number of
days allotted for the project is 150 days. So we get the equation (2 *
10 * x * 60) / (7 * 90 * 8 * 75) = 5/7 where x is the number of men
working after the 90th day.
*

*
We get x = 225 Since we have 75 men already, it is enough to add only
150 men.

Q28. 3 blocks are chosen randomly on a chessboard. What is the
probability that they are in the same diagonal?
**

A.0.002688

B.0.011

C.0.002888

D.0.0048

__ANS:__
A

__Explanation: __

*
There are total of 64 blocks on a chessboard. So 3 blocks can be chosen
out of 64 in 64C3 ways.
*

*
So the sample space is = 41664 There are 2 diagonal on chessboard each
one having 8 blocks.
*

*
Consider one of them. 3 blocks out of 8 blocks in diagonal can be
chosen in 8C3 ways.
*

*
But there are 2 such diagonals, hence favourables = 2 * 8C3 = 2 * 56 =
112 The required probability is = 112 / 41664 = 1 / 372 = 0.002688.

Kgs. How much do you weigh?"Meenu replied that she wouldnt reveal her
weight directly as she is overweight. But she said, "I weigh 29 Kgs
plus half of my weight."How much does Meenu weigh?
**

A.57

B.60

C.58

D.67

__ANS:__
C

__Explanation:__

*
Meenu weighs 58 Kgs. It is given that Meenu weighs 29 Kgs plus half of
her own weight. It means that 29 Kgs is the other half. So she weighs
58 Kgs.
