1. Currently, the age of a father is three times that of his son. 2.5
years from now, age of the father becomes 2.5 times that of the son.
The age of son currently is?

A. 6.5 yrs.

B. 8 yrs.

C. 7.5 yrs.

D. None of these

Explanation:

Let the current age of son = x.

Then, Father's age = 3x.

Now, According to the question,

=> (3x+2.5) = 2.5 *(x + 2.5)

=> x = 7.5 years.

2. A does 3/4 of a piece of work in 24 days. He then calls in B and
both of them together complete the remaining work in 4 days -how long
would B alone take to do the entire work?

A. 16 days

B. 24 days

C. 32 days

D. 40 days

Explanation:

Given, 3/4th of work is done in 24 days so 24*4/3=32.

So, remaining work 3/4-1=1/4.

and, 1/4 work is done by A and B is 4*4=16days

A's one-day work is 1/32

(A+B) 's one-day work=1/16

B's one-day work=1/16-1/32 = 1/32.

Hence, B would take 32 days to complete the work.

3. The profit on a certain article is 25% had it been brought at 10%
discount and sold for 20% more than the earlier cost, the profit would
have been Rs 600. What is the CP of the article?

A. 6000

B. 3000

C. 2000

D. None of these

Explanation:

Let the CP be x.

Gain % = 25%

Then, SP = x*125/100

=> SP = 5x/4

If it had been bought at 10% discount, then

CP = x*90/100

CP = 9x/10

Sold at 20% more that the earliest cost (at CP = x)

Then SP = x*120/100 = 600+(9x/10).

=> 6x/5 = (6000+9x/10).

=> 12x = 6000+9x.

=> 3x = 6000.

=> x = 2000.

4. The cost of the manufacturing an article includes materials, labor
and overheads in the ratio of 4:3:2. If the cost of labor is 45 Rs,
find the total cost of article and also its profit percentage, if the
article is sold per 180 Rs?

A. Rs.145, 70/3%

B. Rs.135, 100/3%

C. Rs.125, 61/3%

D. None of the above

Explanation:

Given, the Cost ratio of material, labor, overheads => 4:3:2

Total cost will be 4x + 3x + 2x = 9x.

Cost of Labor = 45

Therefore,3x = 45.

=> x = 15.

Total cost of article is 4*15 + 3*15 + 2*15 = 135.

If SP = 180, then profit= 180 - 135 = 45.

Profit % = 45*100/135 = (100/3) %.

5. If a boy travels with 5/6th of usual his speed, he is late by 10
mins. What is the usual time taken to travel?

A. 40 mins

B. 30 mins

C. 50 mins

D. 55 mins

Explanation:

Let 's' and 't' be the usual speed and time of the boy respectively and
d be the distance.

Since, Usual time taken t = d/s.

Late by 10mins if speed is 5/6th of s

10 mins => 600 secs [Convert mins to secs or hours]

Then d/(s*5/6) = d/s + 600

=> 6d/5s = t+600 [Since t = d/s... From (1)]

=> 6t/5 = t+600

=> 6t = 5t+3000

=> t = 3000 secs or 50 mins.

6. The sum of 'n' terms of a series in A.P is 6n^2 + 6n. What is the
4th term of the series?

A. 38

B. 49

C. 60

D. 48

Explanation:

The 4th term = sum of 4 terms - sum of 3 terms.

Then,

=> (6 * 4^2 + 6*4) -( 6* 3^2 + 6*3) = (96 + 24) – (54+18)

=> 120 - 72 = 48.

7. A lent Rs. 5000 to B for 2 years and Rs. 3000 to C for 4 years on
simple interest at the same rate of interest and received Rs. 2200 in
all from both of them as interest. The rate of interest per annum is:

A. 5%

B. 7%

C. 8%

D. 10%

Explanation:

Let the rate be R% p.a.

Then, (5000 x R x 2)/100 + (3000 x R x 4)/100 = 2200.

=> 100R + 120R = 2200

=> R = 2200/220 = 10.

.'. Rate = 10%.

8. In a group of donkeys and pigs, the numbers of legs are 16 more than
twice the number of heads. The number of donkeys is

A. 6

B. 8

C. 11

D. 13

Explanation:

Let the number of donkeys be x and the number of pigs be y.

Then,

=> 4x + 2y = 2(x + y) = 16.

=> 2x + (2x + 2y) = (2x + 2y) + 16.

=> x = 8.

9. Three partner’s A, B, C start a business. Twice A’s capital is equal
to thrice B’s capital and B’s capital is four times C’s capital. Out of
a total profit of Rs.16500 at the end of the year, B’s share is:

A. Rs.4000

B. Rs.6000

C. Rs 7500

D. Rs.6600

Explanation:

Let C = x.

Then B = 4x and 2A = 3 * 4x = 12x. or A = 6x.

Therefore, A: B: C = 6x: 4x: x = 6: 4: 1.

Therefore, B’s capital = Rs. 16500 * 4/11= Rs.6000.

10. A circular wire of radius 42cm is cut and bent into the form of a
rectangle whose sides are in the ratio of 6:5. The smaller side of the
rectangle is:

A. 30cm

B. 60cm

C. 72cm

D. 132cm.

Explanation:

Length of wire= circumference of circle of radius 42cm= (2* 22/7* 42) =
264cm.

Therefore, perimeter of rectangle= 264 cm.

Let, length= 6x cm & breadth= 5x cm.

Therefore, 2 (6x + 5x) = 264 or x=12.

Therefore, smaller side= 60 cm.

Government or an International Federation of Mankind. It is the utmost
necessity of the world today, and all those persons who wish to see all

religious sects divided one set of people against another, color of the
skin or construction of the body set one against the other. But today
when philosophical light has exploded the darkness that was created by
religious differences, and when scientific knowledge has falsified the
theory of social superiority and when modern inventions have enabled
human beings of all religious views and of all races and colors to come
in frequent contact with one another, it is the governments of various
countries that keep people of one country apart from those of another.

isolation, unnecessary fears and dangers in the minds of the common men
who by their nature want to live in friendship with their fellow-men.
