Is X>Y ?1). X+Y>02). Y^X<0

ANS : (C)

Stmt 1) X+Y>0. doesn’t give us any information about values of X and Y. We can have X=1 andY=0 or X=0 and Y=1. INSUFFStmt 2) Y^X<0. Y^x can be <0 only when y is negative. X could be positive (odd numbers) or –ve(odd) for the inequality to hold. INSUFFGiven X+Y>0 and Y^X<0 => Y is negative and X has to be positive (so that the sum becomespositive). Hence X>Y. SUFF(C)

An=An-1 +5, A5=31. A1=?

ANS: 11

A5 = A4+5 = A3+10 = A2+15 = A1+2031 = A1+20 => A1=11

Which is more economic, copying or buying a $12.5 book with K pages?1). K> 852). Copying a book with K+15 pages will cost more than $14

ANS: (E)

Stmt (1) K>85. Doesn’t give any idea about the cost of photocopy per page. INSUFFStmt (2) Copying a book with K+15 pages will cost more than $14. Let c be the cost of photocopyper page. Given c(k+15)>14. We can have any combination of c and K such that they will satisfythis inequality and also Kc will be greater than or less than 12.5. INSUFFCombining (1) and (2) lets take K=85 => c(K+85)>14 => c(85+15)>14 => c>.14.Since c>.14 and K>85, we have Kc>85*.14 => Kc>11.9. Hence Kc could be less than or greaterthan 12.5. So we cannot say what would be more economical. INSUFF(E)

Tom has x books and he can completely place them in the bookshelf by placing 10 copies ineach line. If 10 more books are added in, he can completely place them in the bookshelf by placing12 copies in each line. X=?

1). x<962). x>24

ANS: (A)

Given x books can be completely places with 10 copies in each line => x=10p.Given x+10 books can be completely placed with 12 copies in each line => x+10 = 12q => x =12q-10=> 10p = 12q-10 => 10(p+1) = 12qHence we are looking for a multiple of 10 and 12 here which would be 60K (since 60 is the LCM of 12 and 10).Stmt 1) x<96. Only one multiple of 10 and 12 possible which is 60. => 10(p+1)=60 => p=5.Hence x=50. SUFFStmt 2) x>24. There are infinite values possible. INSUFF(A)

A and P took three tests. A's score in the first and second test is 10 and 4 higher than B's,respectively. If P's average score for the three tests is 3 higher than that of A, in the third test, P'sscore is how much higher than that of A?

ANS: 23

Lets A’s scores be A1, A2 and A3 and B’s score be B1, B2 and B3.Given A1 = B1+10, A2 = B2+4 and (B1+B2+B3)/3 = 3 + (A1+A2+A3)/3Take the third equation:(B1+B2+B3)/3 = 3 + (A1+A2+A3)/3 => B1+B2+B3 = 9 + A1+A2+A3 (now substitute first 2eqns):=> B1+B2+B3 = 9 + B1+10 + B2+4 + A3=> B3 = A3+23 => In third test, B’s score is 23 more than that of A.

A, B, C, and D took a certain test, if the sum of their scores is 400, is score of B greater thanthat of C?1). A+B=100+C+D2). A+C=80+B+D

ANS: (C)

Given A+B+C+D=400

Stmt 1) A+B=100+C+D => Substituting in above equation gives C+D=150 and A+B=250. Whichessentially gives the information that C<=150 and B<=250 (scores cant be negative). Nothing elsecan be said. INSUFFStmt 2) A+C=80+B+D => Substituting, gives B+D=160 and A+C=240. Again, nothing else can besaid. INSUFFCombining (1) and (2), (A+B) + (B+D) – (C+D) – (A+C) = 250+160-150-240 => 2B-2C=20 => B-C=10 => B>C. SUFF

What is the remainder when 43^43+ 33^33 is divided by 10?

ANS: 0

Units digit for power of any number with 3 in the units place follows pattern 3,9,7,1.Units digit for 43^43 = 7 (remainder of 43 divided by 3 is 1. So the units digit will be 3)Units digit for 33^33 = 7Units digit of (43^43 + 33^33) = Units digit for 43^33 + Units digit for 33^33 = 0 (discard the 1).Units digit when it is divided by 10 is same as the units digit of the number itself = 0.

Sequence A consists of 10 consecutive odd numbers and B consists of 5 consecutive evennumbers. If the least number in A is 7 greater than the least number in B, the average of thenumbers in A is how much greater than average of numbers in B?

ANS : 12

Let least number of B=x => least number in A = x+7Sequence B = x, x+2, x+4, x+6, x+8 (consecutive odd) => average = [5x+20]/5 = x+4Sequence A = x+7, x+9, x+11, x+13, x+15, x+17, x+19, x+21, x+23, x+25 (consecutiveeven)=> average = x+18Average of A – Average of B =

If r, s, and t are integer, is r^3 *s*t^4 negative?1) r*t is negative2) s is negative

ANS: (E)

The sign of r^3 *s*t^4 basically depends upon the sign of r

and

s. Since t is raised to an evenpower, it will not contribute to the overall sign of the term.Stmt 1) r*t is negative => either r is negative or t is negative, but both are not negative => If r isnegative and t is positive -> r^3 *s*t^4 will be negative, OR if r is positive and t is negative, r^3*s*t^4 will be positive. Inconsistent values. INSUFF
