2.A chemical plant has four tanks (A, B, C and D), each containing 1000 litres of a chemical. The chemical is being pumped from onetank to another as follows:From A to B @ 20 litres/minuteFrom C to A @ 90 litres/minuteFrom A to D @ 10 litres/minuteFrom C to D @ 50 litres/minuteFrom B to C @ 100 litres/minuteFrom D to B @ 110 litres/minuteWhich tank gets emptied first and how long does it take (in minutes) to get empty after pumping starts?(1)A, 16.66(2)C, 20(3)D, 20(4)D, 25Sol.For A quantity of water flowing per minutes is 90 – 10 – 20 = 60 liter.For B it is 110 – 100 + 20 = 30For C it is 100 – 90 – 50 = –40For D it is 10 + 50 – 110 = –50For D Tank will get emptied first in10005020

4.A jogging park has two identical circular tracks touching each other, and a rectangular track enclosing the two circles. The edges of the rectangles are tangential to the circles. Two friends, A and B, start jogging simultaneously from the point where one of thecircular tracks touches the smaller side of the rectangular track. A jogs along the rectangular track, while B jogs along the twocircular tracks in a figure of eight. Approximately, how much faster than A does B have to run, so that they take the same time toreturn to their starting point?(1)3.88%(2)4.22%3. 4.44%(4)4.72%Sol.Let radius circle is r m.

5.In a chess competition involving some boys and girls of a school, every student had to play exactly one game with every otherstudent. It was found that in 45 games both the players were girls, and in 190 games both were boys. The number of games in whichone player was a boy and the other was a girl is(1)200(2)216(3)235(4)256Sol.Let there are x boys & y girlsTotal no. of games between boys are

12190.By solving this we get x = 20.Similarly total games between girls = 45.
y = 10.Therefore no. of games in which one player was a boy and a girl = 20 × 10 = 200.
Ans.(1)Directions for Questions 6 and 7:
Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.Ram and Shyam run a race between points A and B, 5 km apart. Ram starts at 9 a.m. from A at a speed of 5 km/hr, reaches B, andreturns to A at the same speed. Shyam starts at 9:45 a.m. from A at a speed of 10 km/hr, reaches B and comes back to A at the samespeed.6.At what time do Ram and Shyam first meet each other?(1)10 a.m.(2)10:10 a.m.(3)10:20 a.m.(4)10:30 a.m.Sol.
