For questions 1 to 5:
Based on the information provided in the questions, we can infer that

JLM and ASC are the subjects taught in \u2018P\u2019 (5).
From (4) and (5), it is clear that B is studying in \u2018R\u2019.
From (1), it is also clear that FLG is taught in \u2018Q\u2019.
So, D is studying in \u2018R\u2019 and got placed in \u2018X3\u2019.
From (6), it is clear that E is studying ASC and got placed in \u2018X4\u2019.

For questions 6 and 7:
As per the information given in the question we know that Rita
(family B) is one of the twin baby girls and is 8 years old.
Also, Kaya (family A) is 9 years old and the age of Radha and Reena
is 13 years and 7 years respectively.
Let, the age (in years) of Maya, Shreya and Farah be (x\u2013 3), x and
(x\u2013 5) respectively.
We also know that Maya and Shreya are sisters.
So, any one of the three persons Maya, Shreya and Farah can be the
other twin baby girl.
6. 1
Given that Radha is elder than all the mentioned persons.

So, Farah cannot be the other twin baby girl as then the age
of Shreya will be equal to the age of Radha, i.e. 13 years.
So, either Maya or Shreya is the other twin baby girl.

So, the value of\u2018x\u2019 can be 11 or 8.
Therefore, the age of Farah can be 6 or 3 years.
7. 5
Given that Reena belongs to family B.

Therefore, Farah has to be the other twin baby girl as Maya and Shreya are sisters and the total number of girls in family B is 3.

So, the value of\u2018x\u2019 is 8 + 5 = 13.
Therefore, age of Shreya is 13 years.
8. 3

If Yasir occupies seat number 1, then the serial number of the seat on which the remaining persons can be seated are as follows:

Persons
Numbers of the seats
Arafat
2 or 3
Rasheed
2 or 3 or 4
Ali
4 or 5
Rehman
5 or 6
Case I: Seat number 2 is unoccupied.

Arafat will occupy seat number 3, Rasheed will occupy seat number 4 and similarly the serial number of the seat occupied by Ali and Rehman is 5 and 6 respectively.

Total number of ways in which they can be seated = 1.
Case II: Seat number 4 is unoccupied.
Ali and Rehman will sit on seat number 5 and 6 respectively
and Arafat can sit on either of the seats numbered 2 or 3.
Total number of ways in which they can be seated = 2.
Hence, total number of ways in which the mentioned 5 persons
can be seated = 1 + 2 = 3.

The total points given by the judges J1,J2,J3,J4 and J5is 25, 20, 30, 20 and 20 respectively. Please bear in the mind that judges awarded distinct point to the candidates. The range of the possible points earned by the five contestants is given in the following table.

13. 4 Given that the judge J2 and J4 gave the same points to Milind. This is only possible if both the judges gave 0 points to Milind because if Milind got 1 point from the judge J2, then Ranvir will also get 1 point from the judge J2 and this is not possible.

Given that Samir got 4 points from judge J3, which means that
Ranvir got 6\u2013 4 = 2 points from judge J3.
The total points earned by Ranvir = 5 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 8 = 20.
14. 5 The range of the total points earned by all the five contestants

is given below. Samir: 24 - 28 Milind: 22 - 27 Ranvir: 14 - 23 Sahil: 23 - 30 Arjun: 16 - 23

Therefore, both Ranvir and Arjun will definitely not earn more
points than Sahil.

Therefore, the discriminant is\u2018\u2013 ve\u2019 and hence the roots of the
given equation are not real.
Hence, statement A alone is sufficient to answer the question.
Using statement B:
D = 4(b2\u2013 ac)
The information a > c and b > c is not sufficient to answer the
question.
Hence, statement B alone is not sufficient to answer the
question.
Hence, option (1) is the correct choice.
16. 4Using statement A:
Given that\u2220
= \u00b0
BPC 80 .
\u2234 \u2220
+\u2220
=
\u00b0
BAC
BPC 180 .
Therefore, BACP is a cyclic quadrilateral.

But this information is not sufficient to answer the question. Hence, statement A alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Using statement B:
Given thatBAR 2 ACB 60 .
\u2220
= \u2220
= \u00b0
But this information is also not sufficient to answer the
question.
Combining both the statements together:
We know that BACP is cyclic quadrilateral, Q is the mid point
of AP andBAR 60 .
\u2220
= \u00b0
Also, BPA

CQP 2 BAC\u2013 BAR 80 .
\u2234 \u2220
= \u2220
\u2220

Hence, option (4) is the correct choice.
17. 2 It is obvious that A > B. Also, since both A and B are two\u2013 digit
numbers, therefore 9 < A < 100 and 9 < B < 100.
Given that 2A = 5B, therefore A has to be a multiple of 5.
The value of\u2018A\u2019 will be minimum when the value of\u2018B\u2019 is
minimum, which occurs at B = 10.
Possible values that A can take are 25, 30, 35,...90 and 95.
Corresponding values of B will be 10, 12, 14,....36 and 38.
Using Statement A:
Given that A + B > 123
There are two sets of values of A and B for which A + B > 123,
(A = 90 and B = 36) and (A = 95 and B = 38)
Hence, statement A is not sufficient to answer the question
Using Statement B:
Given that A + B > 132
A + B > 132 only for A = 95 and B = 38. So, the value of A is 95.
Hence, statement B is sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, option (2) is the correct choice.
18. 3Using statement A:
If both the holes are opened, then it will take

69 + 92
\ue006
\ue007
\ue008
\ue009
\ue00a

to completely empty a full tank.
Hence, statement A alone is sufficient to answer the question.
Using statement B:

Given that the quantity of water flowing through hole A in 3 minutes is same as the quantity of water flowing through hole B in 4 minutes.

Therefore, the quantity of water flowing through hole A and
hole B independently in 1 minute will be in ratio 4:3.
Therefore, if hole A is closed and hole B is opened it will take
469 92minutes
3\u00d7 =
to completely empty a full tank.
Hence, statement B alone is sufficient to answer the question.
Hence, option (3) is the correct choice.

20. 4 Ratio of the sides of original cuboid = 60 : 40 : 30 = 6 : 4 : 3 Dimensions of the smaller cuboid not only should be multiple of 6, 4 and 3 as but should be factors of 60, 40 and 30 in the same order.

Factors of 60 = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60)
Factors of 40 = (1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 40)

22. 2 The nth term of the series 4, 8, 12, 16... 960 is 4n.

The mth term of the series 2, 6, 12, 20, ... 930 is m(m + 1) and 930 is the 30th term of the series as: 2 = 1\u00d7 2, 6 = 2\u00d7 3, 12 = 3\u00d7 4, and so on.

So, all the terms in the series 2, 6, 12, 20, ... 930 that are
divisible by 4, will be there in the series 4, 8, 12, 16, ... 960.
Hence, m(m + 1) will only be divisible by 4 when\u2018m\u2019 is divisible
by 4 or\u2018m\u2019 leaves a remainder of 3 when divided by 4.
Hence, for m = 3, 4, 7, 8, ... 27 and 28, m(m + 1) will be divisible
by 4.
Hence, there are 14 values of\u2018m\u2019 for which m(m + 1) is
divisible by 4.
Therefore, total number of terms common to the two given
sequences is 14.
For questions 23 to 25:

Given that the increase in the number of applicants in the Commerce stream in 2008 as compared to 2007 is 70000 and that the average number of applicants in the four given streams in 2008 is 400000.

Therefore, the increase in the number of applicants in the Engineering
stream in 2008 will be 70000 + 20000 = 90000.

Thus, the corresponding increase in the number of applicants in the Medical Science stream in 2008 will be 90000\u2013 69000 = 21000 and subsequently the increase in the number of applicants in the Arts stream will be 21000 + 59000 = 80000.

23. 5 So, the values of C, E and F will be (70000\u2013 21000 = 49000), (80000\u2013 90000 =\u2013 10000) and (80000\u2013 70000) respectively. So, all the four options (1), (2), (3) and (4) are true.

For questions 24 and 25:

Let the number of applicants in the Engineering, Medical Science, Commerce and Arts stream in 2007 be\u2018x\u2019,\u2018y\u2019,\u2018z\u2019 and\u2018w\u2019 respectively. Therefore, the number of applicants in the Engineering, Medical Science, Commerce and Arts stream in 2008 will be (x + 90000), (y + 21000), (z + 70000) and (w + 80000) respectively.

So, x + y + z + w + 261000 = 400000 x 4 = 1600000.
Or, x + y + z + w = 1339000.

Special note:
Look for the mathematical fallacy here:-
80x = 4 or (24.5)x= 22 or 24x.5x= 22
or, 24x\u20132.5x = 20.50
Equating the powers of 2 and 5 on both the sides, we get
4x\u2013 2 = 0 and x = 0
or,

Which is impossible and hence many of you clicked option (5)

Mind you when 80x = 4, x = log804 which is an irrational number, but while solving it above we preassign a rational value of to it.
