1.
The difference between the ages of two of my three grandchildren is 3
.
Myeldest grandchild is three times older than the age of my youngest grandchild andmy eldest grandchild's age is two years more than the ages of my two youngestgrandchildren added together
.
How old is my eldest grandchild?(a)
12
(b)
1
3 (c)
10
(d)
15
Solution:
Let X be the elder, Y be the younger, Z be the youngest.From qn,1. X=3Z,2. Y-Z=3 or X-Y=33. X=2+Y+Z. Compare 2 and 3, X-Y=3 is not possible.We need X value so get Y value and Z value from 2 and 3 respectively.Substitute in 3, we get X=15.

A greengrocer was selling apple at a penny each, chickoos at
2
for a penny andpeanuts at 3 for a penny
.
A father spent 7 pennies and got the same amount of each type of fruit for each of his three children
.
What did each child get?(a)
1
apple,
2
chickoos,
2
peanuts(b)
1
apple,
2
chickoos,
1
peanut(c)
1
apple, 3 chickoos,
2
peanuts(d)
1
apple,
1
chickoos,
1
peanutSolution:
Get the answer from options.No of items * no of children*cost of item=total cost for the item. A)1apple*3 =3*1 =3,2chickoos*3 =6*(1/2) =3,2peanuts*3 =6*(1/3) =2. The sum of cost is 8. . It doesn¶t matches with father cost. Sothis is wrong answer.B)1apple*3 =3*1 =3,2chickoos*3 =6*(1/2) =3,1peanuts*3 =3*(1/3) =1. The sum of cost is 7. It matches with father cost. So this iscorrect answer.

Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game
.
Given the expression

N = 9 + X + Y ± Z ,where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (
0
to 9),Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it
.
Towards thisend, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variableof her choice (X, Y or Z)
.
Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variableto substitute the value
.
Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable
.
Assuming both play to their optimal strategies, the value of N at the end of thegame would be(a)

The citizens of planet nigiet are
8
fingered and have thus developed their decimal system in base
8.
A certain street in nigiet contains
1000
(in base

to
1000.
How many 3s are used in numbering thesebuildings?(a)

Solution:

Here base is
8.

No of 8 in 10 (1,2,3,....10) is

1*
base (
8
)
0
No of 8 in 100 (1,2,3,...100) is

2*
base(
8
)

No of 8 in 1000(1,2,3,...1000) is
3
*
base(
8
