Question 2. A lady has to find gloves and hats of different colours in her closet 18 blue, 32 red and 25 yellow. The lights are out and it is totally dark. In spite of the darkness, she can make out the difference between a hat and a glove. She takes an item out of the closet only if she is sure that it is a glove. How many gloves must she take out to make sure that she has a pair of each colour?

She has to pick 59 gloves.

Question 3. After offering a discount of 12.5% on the list price, a product was sold for a profit of 12%. What percentage of the list price would be gained or lost if a discount of 25% was offered?

a) 4% Loss

b) 4% Gain

c) 3% gain

d) 3% Loss

Answer: 4% Loss

Explanation: Cp —-> 100%, Sp —-> 112% (12% profit)
But Sp is 12.5% of M.P => 12.5% discount
=> 87.5% of M.P = 112
=> list price = 128
25% discount on M.P = 25% of 128 = 32
=> 128 – 32 = 96 = S.P
C.P = 100 => SP = 96 => 4% loss

Question 4. The following table lists the cost of a book in four different stores along with the escalating book discounts. Choose the alternative with the cheapest book price.

a)10% and 15% discount on a marked price of 190

b)10%, 5% and 5% discount on 195

c)25% discount on 200

d)None of the above

Answer: 10% and 15% discount on a marked price of 190

Explanation: we know that there is a formula on discount of m% and n% respectively
which is(m+n-mn/100)%.According to this for first case, total discount is
18.775%,so after discount the price of the book is Rs.158.38.For second case total
discount is 23.4375%,so the price of the book after discount is Rs.156.95.For third
case after discount the price of the book is Rs.150.For last case total discount is
23.5% and the price of the book after discount is Rs.145.35.

Question 5. How long will it take 100 3D printers to create 100 models if it takes 10 3D printers 10 minutes to print 10 models? Fill in the right response quickly.

a)10 Minutes

b)15 Minutes

c)20 Minutes

d)25 Minutes

Answer:10 Minutes

Explanation: In this question 10 printer print 10 copies in 10 minute
It means that 1 printer can print one copy in 10 Minute
so the 100 print is printed by 200 printer in 10 Minute
Because one printer can print 1 copy in 10 Minute so the time does not change

Questions 6. In a clock the long hand is of 8cm and the short hand is of 7cm. if the clock runs for 4 days find out the total distance covered by both the hands?

a) 1650π cm

b) 1648π cm

c)1750π cm

d)1800π cm

Answer: 1648π cm

Explanation: 4 days = 96 hours
long hand makes 1 round (i.e. 2*π*r) in 1 hour, so 96 rounds in 96 hours
short hand makes 1 round in 12 hours, so 8 rounds in 96 hours
Hence total distance = (96*2*π*8) + (8*2*π*7) = 1648*π

Question 7. In 20, 30, and 60 days, respectively, A, B, and C can complete a task. If B and C help A every third day, how many days would it take him to complete the task?

a)10 days

b)15 days

c)20 days

d)25 days

Answer: 15 days

Explanation: one day work done by A=1/20
work done by A in 2 days=1/10
work done by A,B,C on 3rd day=1/20+1/30+1/60=1/10

total work done in 3 days= 1/10+1/10= 1/5

Question 8. What number is it if 43 times of two digit numbers equal 34 times of two digit numbers and the total of the number and its reverse is 14?

a) 78

b) 68

c) 58

d) 48

Answer: 68

Explanation: 43 time the no. And 34 time the reverse no.
43(10x+ y)=34(10y+ x)
430x+ 43y= 340y+34x
To solve this equation become
4x-3y=0 equation=2

Sum of no. And reverse no. Is 14
X+ Y= 14 equation=1
To solve both equation value of x and y
X= 6 and y= 8
number will be 68

Question 9. Ayush can finish a task by himself in 10 days, but Sachin can finish it by himself in 15 days. The job’s total pay was Rs. 5000. How much should Babel be paid if they collaborate throughout the full project?

Ayush 10 day—— now 30/10=3 unit per day
L.C.M = 30(total work they have to perform)
Sachin 15 day——- 30/15=2 unit per day

so their ratios of work is 3:2
so Ayush will get 3/5*5000=3000
