78. The cost of one pencil, two pens and four erasers is Rs.22 while the cost of five pencils, four pens and two erasers is Rs.32.How much will three pencils, three pens and three erasers cost? et the cost of 1 pencil, 1 pen and 1 eraser are respectively x, y, z. Then according to the given condition 1x + 2y + 4z = 22 5x + 4y + 2z = 32 on adding these two equations we get 6x + 6y + 6z = 54 or 3x + 3y + 3z = 27 79.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 8) buildings numbered 1 to 1000. How many 3s are used in numbering these buildings? n unit's place, the 3's are: 3, 13, 23 ... 73 103, 113, 123 ... 173 ... 703, 713, .... 773 => total number of 3's in unit's place is 8*8 = 64 in 10's place (that's 8 in decimal), the 3's are: 30, 31, 32... 37 130, 131, ... 137 ... 730, 731, .... 737 => total number of 3's in 10's place is 8*8 = 64 in 100's place (that's 64 in decimal), the 3's are: 300, 301, ... 307 310, 311 ... 317 ... 370, 371 .... 377 => total number of 3's in 100's place is 8*8 = 64 thus, the total number of 3's in total is 64 + 64 + 64 = 192 80. It is dark in my bedroom and I want to get two socks of the same color from my drawer, which contains 24 red and 24 blue socks. How many socks do I have to take from the drawer to get at least two socks of the same color? a) 2 b) 3 c) 48 d) 25 3. when I take out 2 socks, they can be of same color or of 2 different colors. But third sock will definitely make pair with one of earlier two socks. 81. How many 9 digit numbers are possible by using the digits 1,2,3,4,5 which are divisible by 4 if the repetition is allowed? a) 57 b) 56 c) 59 d) 58 For a number to divisible by 4, the last two digits have to be divisible by 4 So, the units digit cannot be 1, 3 or 5 If the units digit is 2, only 12, 32 or 52 are acceptable as the last two digits If the units digit is 4, only 24 and 44 are acceptable as the last two digits. So, total 5 cases 12,24,32,44,52 are possible for the last two digits. Now, the first 7 digits of the 9 digit number can be filled in 5^7 ways as each place can be filled by 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. So, desired answer = 5^7*5 = 5^8

82. 23 people are there, they are shaking hands together, how many handshakes possible, if they are in pair of cyclic sequence. (a) 22 (b) 23 (c) 44 (d) 46

this question is based on cyclic sequence so number of handshakes = n = 23 (last person will get a handshake with the first person. if these persons would be in a straight line then no. of methods = 23-1 = 22 similarly for a random handshake answer will be 23*22/2*1 = 253 83. The pace length P is the distance between the rear of two consecutive footprints. For men, the formula, n/P = 144 gives an approximate relationship between n and P where, n = number of steps per minute and P = pace length in meters. Bernard knows his pace length is 164cm. The formula applies to Bernard's walking. Calculate Bernard's walking speed in kmph. a) 23.62 b) 8.78 c) 11.39 d) 236.16 n/P = 144 n = 144 * P P = 1.64 n = 144 * 1.64 = 236.16 approx 236 steps per minute we are taking n in integer for it represents no. of steps now v = d / t v = 1.64 * 236 meter/minute v = 387.04 meter / minute or v = (387.04/1000)/(1/60) or v = 387.04*60/1000 = 23.2224 84. Anoop managed to draw 7 circles of equal radii with their centers on the diagonal of a square such that the two extreme circles touch two sides of the square and each middle circle touches two circles on either side. Find the ratio of the radius of the circles to the side of the square. a) 1:(4+ 7v3) b) 1:(2+ 6v2) c) 1:(2+ 7v2) d) (2+ 7v2):1 et the radius of circle be r let the side of square be a then diagonal of square= a*sqrt(2) This diagonal length = 12*r + 2r * sqrt(2) (because the extreme circle's radius is perpendicular to side of square.) Thus we get 12*r+2r*sqrt(2)=a*sqrt(2) r(6*sqrt(2)+2)=a r/a=1/(6*sqrt(2)+2) Thus ratio: r:a = 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2) Ans: 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2 85.A collection of points P in the plane , a 1-set is a point in P that can be separated from the rest by a line, .i.e the point lies on one side of the line while the others lie on the other side. The number of 1-sets of P is denoted by n1(P). The minimum value of n1(P) over all configurations P of 5 points in the plane in general position (.i.e. no three points in P lie on a line) is a) 3 b) 5 c) 2 he meaning of this question is little complicated. In easy language the question should be: There are some points in the plane. We have to make a separation between these points by forming a line in such a way that one point could be separate from the others. No 3 points are in a line. Maximum no of methods for plotting the line and minimum no of methods for plotting the line will be (arrangement of points is your choice) Now Answer Is: For Maximize: The number of methods, Points should be drawn in the circumference of the CIRCLE So answer would be the number of total point in the plane. For minimize: The number of methods we should draw 3 points in a TRIANGLE and all other point inside this triangle in such a way that no 3 points could be in a line. If it will be allowed to draw the points in a line then minimum possibilities will be 2 only, because if we take all points in a line then you can separate only the corner points from the others. For example If we have 10 points then maximum possibilities = 10 and minimum = 3 similarly for 5 points Max = 5, Min = 3 for 19 max= 19 Min = 3 86. The IT giant Tirnop has recently crossed a head count of 150000 and earnings of $7 billion. As one of the forerunners in the technology front, Tirnop continues to lead the way in products and services in India. At Tirnop, all programmers are equal in every

respect. They receive identical salaries ans also write code at the same rate.Suppose 12 such programmers take 12 minutes to write 12 lines of code in total. How long will it take 72 programmers to write 72 lines of code in total? a) 6 b) 18 c) 72 d) 12 No of people time work 12 12 12 72 x 72 Work = No of people * time i.e. ( P1 * T1 ) / W1 = ( P2 * T2 ) / W2 (12 * 12 ) / 12 = ( 72 * x ) / 72 X = 12 87. On the planet Oz, there are 8 days in a week- Sunday to Saturday and another day called Oz day. There are 36 hours in a day and each hour has 90 min while each minute has 60 sec. As on earth, the hour hand covers the dial twice every day. Find the approximate angle between the hands of a clock on Oz when the time is 12:40 am. Since total hours in a day = 36 and as on earth, the hour hand covers the dial twice every day. so there will be 18 numbers from 1 to 18 in the clock. when the time will be 12:40, two hands of the clock will make an angle of 20*4 = 80 degree, here 20 is the angle between two numbers in the clock. now for 80 min, advancement of the hour hand will be (20/90)*40 = 80/9 so total angle = 80 + (80/9) = 800/9 = 88.889 degree if we consider the obtuse angle, then it will be 360-88.889 = 271.111 degree 88. Spores of a fungus, called late blight, grow and spread infection rapidly. These pathogens were responsible for the Irish potato famine of the mid-19th century. These seem to have attacked the tomato crops in England this year. The tomato crops have reduced and the price of the crop has risen up . The price has already gone up to $45 a box from $27 a box a month ago. How much more would a vegetable vendor need to pay to buy 27 boxes this month over what he would have paid last month? a) $27 b) $ 18 c) $45 d) $ 486 difference of cost in one box = 45-27 = 18 so for 27 boxes difference = 18*27 = 486 89. A research lab in Chennai requires 100 mice and 75 sterilized cages for a certain set of laboratory experiments. To identify the mice, the lab has prepared labels with numbers 1 to 100, by combining tags numbered 0 to 9. The SPCA requires that the tags be made of toxin-free material and that the temperature of the cages be maintained at 27 degree Celsius. Also, not more than 2 mice can be caged together and each cage must be at least 2 sq.ft in area. The 5 experiments to be conducted by lab are to be thoroughly documented and performed only after a round of approval by authorities. The approval procedure takes around 48 hours. How many times the tag is numbered '4' used by the lab in numbering these mice? a) 9 b) 19 c) 20 d) 21 count as 4,14,24,34,44,54,64,74,84,94 then 40,41,42,43,45,46,47,48,49..so ans is 19 90. A toy train produces at least 10 different tunes when it moves around a circular toy track of radius 5 meters at 10 meters per minute. However, the toy train is defective and it now produces only two different tunes at random. What are the odds that the toy train produces 4 consecutive music tunes of the same type? a) 1 in 16 b) 1 in 4 c) 1 in 8 only two different tunes are there, so for making 4 consecutive music tunes of the same type, probability = (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2)*2 = 1/8 last 2 is because of the two case (1) first tune all 4 times (2) second tune all 4 times but here the question is based on odds, so answer should be (1/8)/[(1-(1/8)] = 1/7 91. 36 people {a1, a2, ..., a36} meet and shake hands in a circular fashion. In other words, there are totally 36 handshakes involving the pairs, {a1, a2}, {a2, a3}, ..., {a35, a36}, {a36, a1}. Then size of the smallest set of people such that the rest have shaken hands with at least one person in the set is

Answer 12 is correct. because if we take person a1 in the set then it will cover a36 and a2 for shaking hand.similarly if we take person a4 in the set then it will cover a5 and a3 for shaking hand and so on, so minimum 12 persons are required to make shake hand with rest of the people complete 92. A and B play a game of dice between them. The dice consist of colors on their faces (instead of numbers). When the dice are thrown, A wins if both show the same color; otherwise B wins. One die has 4 red face and 2 blue faces. How many red and blue faces should the other die have if the both players have the same chances of winning P(A wins) = P(Die 1 lands red) * P(Die 2 lands red) + P(Die 1 lands blue) * P(Die 2 lands blue) So if r represents the number of red faces on the 2nd die and we want P(A wins) to be 0.50 (50%), then 0.50 = 4/6 * r/6 + 2/6 * (6-r)/6 0.50 = 4r/36 + (12-2r)/36 18/36 = (12-2r)/36 18/36 = 12/36 - 2r/36 6/36 = 2r/36 6 = 2r 3=r 93. Planet fourfi resides in 4-dimensional space and thus the currency used by its residents are 3-dimensional objects. The rupee notes are cubical in shape while their coins are spherical. However the coin minting machinery lays out some stipulations on the size of the coins. The diameter of the coins should be at least 64mm and not exceed 512mm. Given a coin, the diameter of the next larger coin is at least 50% greater. The diameter of the coin must always be an integer. You are asked to design a set of coins of different diameters with these requirements and your goal is to design as many coins as possible. How many coins can you design? 5 9 6 8 64mm.........1st coin 64+32=96.....2nd coin 96+48=144....3rd coin 144+72=216...4th coin 216+108=324..5th coin 324+162=486..6th coin 486+50%of 486 exceeds 512 so 6 coins can be designed 94. A is the father of B. C is the son of D. E is the brother of C while D is the sister of B. how is B related to E cannot be determined b'coz it is not given whether B is male or female. B is either 'aunt' or 'uncle' of E 95. In a family there are some boys and girls. All boys told that they are having equal no of brothers and sisters and girls told that they are having twice the no. of brothers than sisters. How many boys and girls present in a family? let there r b boys and g no of gals so ,when the boy is counting ,then b-1=g when the gal is counting, then b=2(g-1) so , solving above 2 eqn, we get g=3 and b=4 96. Lion tells lie on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Rat tells lie on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Both of them speak truth on other days. Lion tells, Yesterday was one of the days which I tell lying. Rat also tells, Yesterday was one of the days which I tell lying What day was yesterday? Lion speak lies on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; Lion speak truth on Sunday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday; Rat speak truth on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday; Rat speak lie on Thursday, Friday, Saturday; Suppose, Lion tells truth on Thursday that Yesterday(Wednesday) was one of the day which he/she tell lying. Then Rat tells lie on Thursday that Yesterday(Wednesday) was one of the day which he/she tell lying. So Yesterday is Wednesday

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 this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to 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 the game would be 27 0.0 20 1 First Read the question carefully, According to the given question all the numbers will be decided by alok and first 2 would be put by bhanu whereas alok will put the 3rd one. So for getting maximum alok will tell 7 as the first Number two cases arise

1) if bhanu will put this number as Z then 9, 9 will be the next 2 number. and 9+x+y-z = 20 2) if bhanu will put this number X, then alok will tell 4 or 5 as next number. if bhanu will put 4 or 5 as Z then alok will put 9 as Y. So N will be 9+x+y-z= 9+7+9-4 = 21 OR 9+7+9-5 = 20 IF bhanu will put 4 or 5 as Y then alok will put 0 as Z 9+x+y-z = 9+7+4-0 = 20 OR 9+7+5-0 = 21 So if both are playing with there best effort then 9+x+y-z will be 20 20 is the correct answer 172.

What day is it? a) Thursday b) Tuesday c) Monday d) Sunda according to the given data, the ans is thursda 176. A and B play a game of dice between them. The dice consist of colors on their faces (instead of numbers). When the dice are thrown, A wins if both show the same color; otherwise B wins. One die has 4 red face and 2 blue faces. How many red and blue faces should the other die have if the both players have the same chances of winning? a) 3 red and 3 blue faces b) 2 red and remaining blue c) 6 red and 0 blue d) 4 red and remaining blue ANS is 3 red and 3 blue faces Let 2 dice contains x no of red faces and y no of blue faces probability of winning A=(4/6)*(x/6)+(2/6)*(y/6) probability of winning B=(2/6)*(x/6)+(4/6)*(y/6) both probabilities are equal according to the given condition therfore 4x+2y=2x+4y x=y hence x=3 and y=3 177. A circular dartboard of radius 1 foot is at a distance of 20 feet from you. You throw a dart at it and it hits the dartboard at some point Q in the circle. What is the probability that Q is closer to the center of the circle than the periphery? a) 0.75 b) 1 c) 0.5 d) 0.25 the aresa of circle is pi*r^2 and fro ques we understand dat radius 0.5 so we get pi/4 the area of dartboard is pi*r^2 pi pi/4/pi 0.25 178. For the FIFA world cup, Paul the octopus has been predicting the winner of each match with amazing success. It is rumored that in a match between 2 teams A and B, Paul picks A with the same probability as A's chances of winning. Let's assume such rumors to be true and that in a match between Ghana and Bolivia, Ghana the stronger team has a probability of 2/3 of winning the game. What is the probability that Paul will correctly pick the winner of the Ghana-Bolivia game? a)1/9 b)4/9 c)5/9 d)2/3 2/3*2/3+1/3*1/3 5/9 179. Given a collection of points P in the plane, a 1-set is a point in P that can be separated from the rest by a line, .i.e the point lies on one side of the line while the others lie on the other side. The number of 1-sets of P is denoted by n1(P). The minimum value of n1(P) over all configurations P of 5 points in the plane in general position(.i.e no three points in P lie on a line) is a)3 b)5 c) 2 d)1 ans is 3... consider a triangle. any point placed inside it will not form a 1-set point..... only the three vertices give the value of n1(P) 180. After the typist writes 12 letters and addresses 12 envelopes, she inserts the letters randomly into the envelopes (1 letter per envelope). What is the probability that exactly 1 letter is inserted in an improper envelope Zero. If one letter is in wrong envelope, one other letter must also be in wrong envelope. So zero is the probability that exactly 1 letter is inserted in an improper envelope 181. Alok and Bhanu play the following coins in a circle game. 99 coins are arranged in a circle with each coin touching two other coin. Two of the coins are special and the rest are ordinary. Alok starts and the players take turns removing an ordinary coin of their choice from the circle and bringing the other coins closer until they again form a (smaller) circle. The goal is to bring the special coins adjacent to each other and the first player to do so wins the game. Initially the special coins are separated by two ordinary coins O1 and O2.

Which of the following is true? a) In order to win, Alok should remove O1 on his first turn. b) In order to win, Alok should remove one of the coins different from O1 and O2 on his first turn. c) In order to win, Alok should remove O2 on his first turn. d) Alok has no winning strategy b) In order to win, Alok should remove one of the coins different from O1 and O2 on his first turn 182.

Paul the octopus who has been forecasting the outcome of FIFA world cup matches with tremendous accuracy has now been invited to predict ICC world cup matches in 2011. We will assume that the world cup contenders have been divided into 2 groups of 9 teams each. Each team in a group plays the other teams in the group. The top two teams from each group enter the semi finals (after which the winner is decided by knockout). However, Paul has a soft spot for India and when India plays any team, Paul always backs India. Alas, his predictions on matches involving India are right only 2 out of 3 times. In order to qualify for the semi finals, it is sufficient for India to win 7 of its group matches. What is the probability that India will win the cup ns is : (2/3)^10 + (8/3)*(2/3)^9 given that prob. of India winning the match is 2/3. taking that India wins the semi-final and final.Prob is (2/3)^2 this gets multiplied to the league stage... in league stage, if India has won all the games, the prob. of winning is (2/3)^10 for the 10 matches played...if Indian hadanyone of mathches the prob. Is (8/3)*(2/3)^9 Where 8/3 Is pob for loss 191. There are 3 ants at 3 corners of a triangle, they randomly start moving towards another corner. What is the probability that they don't collide?

194. Planet fourfi resides in 4-dimensional space and thus the currency used by its residents are 3-dimensional objects. The rupee notes are cubical in shape while their coins are spherical. However the coin minting machinery lays out some stipulations on the size of the coins. • The diameter of the coins should be at least 64mm and not exceed 512mm. • Given a coin, the diameter of the next larger coin is at least 50% greater. • The diameter of the coin must always be an integer. You are asked to design a set of coins of different diameters with these requirements and your goal is to design as many coins as possible. How many coins can you design? a9 b 5 c 8 d 6 6 coins with dia 64,96,144,216,324,486 mm. 195. Anoop managed to draw 7 circles of equal radii with their centres on the diagonal of a square such that the two extreme circles touch two sides of the square and each middle circle touches two circles on either side. Find the ratio of the radius of the circles to the side of the square. a (2+ 7√2):1 b 1:(2+ 6√2) c 1:(2+ 7√2) d 1:(4+ 7√3) Let the radius of circle be r let the side of square be a then diagonal of square= a*sqrt(2) This diagonal length = 12*r + 2r * sqrt(2) (because the extreme circle's radius is perpendicular to side of square.) Thus we get 12*r+2r*sqrt(2)=a*sqrt(2) r(6*sqrt(2)+2)=a r/a=1/(6*sqrt(2)+2) Thus ratio: r:a = 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2) Ans: 1:(6*sqrt(2)+2) 196. One day Alice meets pal and byte in fairyland. She knows that pal lies on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and tells the truth on the other days of the week byte, on the other hand, lies on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, but tells the truth on the other days of the week. Now they make the following statements to Alice – pal. Yesterday was one of those days when I lie byte. Yesterday was one of those days when I lie too. What day is it? a) Thursday b) Tuesday c) Monday d) Sunday Thursday 197. Given a collection of points P in the plane, a 1-set is a point in P that can be separated from the rest by a line, .i.e the point lies on one side of the line while the others lie on the other side. The number of 1-sets of P is denoted by n1(P). The minimum value of n1(P) over all configurations P of 5 points in the plane in general position(.i.e no three points in P lie on a line) is a)3 b)5 c) 2 d)1 ans is 3... consider a triangle. any point placed inside it will not form a 1-set point..... only the three vertices give the value of n1(P). 198. After the typist writes 12 letters and addresses 12 envelopes, she inserts the letters randomly into the envelopes (1 letter per envelope). What is the probability that exactly 1 letter is inserted in an improper envelope Zero. If one letter is in wrong envelope, one other letter must also be in wrong envelope. So zero is the probability that exactly 1 letter is inserted in an improper envelop 199. Alok and Bhanu play the following coins in a circle game. 99 coins are arranged in a circle with each coin touching two other coin. Two of the coins are special and the rest are ordinary. Alok starts and the players take turns removing an ordinary coin of their choice from the circle and bringing the other coins closer until they again form a (smaller) circle. The goal is to bring the special coins adjacent to each other and the first player to do so wins the game. Initially the special coins are separated by two ordinary coins O1 and O2.

Which of the following is true? a) In order to win, Alok should remove O1 on his first turn. b) In order to win, Alok should remove one of the coins different from O1 and O2 on his first turn. c) In order to win, Alok should remove O2 on his first turn. d) Alok has no winning strategy. option B is cirrect. If Alok removes coin either from O1 or O2, then there will be only 1 ordinary coin b/w special coins.Then obviously Bhanu will remove that coin in his turn and wins. So Alok should not touch O1 and O2 in his first turn 200. Six friends decide to share a big cake. Since all of them like the cake, they begin quarreling who gets to first cut and have a piece of the cake. One friend suggests that they have a blindfold friend choose from well shuffled set of cards numbered one to six. You check and find that this method works as it should simulating a fair throw of a die. You check by performing multiple simultaneous trials of picking the cards blindfold and throwing a die. You note that the number shown by the method of picking up a card and throwing a real world die, sums to a number between 2 and 12. Which total would be likely to appear more often – 8,9 or 10? a) 8 b)All are equally likely c)9 d)10 the best solution will be 7, and there will be total 6 cases for this choice (1,6), (2,5), (3,4), (4,3), (5,2), (6,1) but this one is not in the choices so out of the 4 choices givem 8 will be the best choice. For this choice there are 5 methods (2,6), (3,5), (4,4), (5,3), (6,2) similarly for 9 there are 4 choices (3,6), (4,5), (5,4), (6,3) for 10 there are 3 choices (4,6), (5,5), (4,6) Answer is (a)

206. If a pipe can fill the tank within 6hrs.But due to leak it takes 30 min more.Now the tank is full then how much time will it take to empty the tank throught the leak.? a)78 b)56 c)66 d)59 78 hour Let capacity be 6litres then pipe takes 1litre/hour pipe/leak = 6/6.5 litre/hour(as they are inveresly proplational) so leak = 1/13 litre per hour for 6 litres it will take 13*6 = 78 hour 207. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack. Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 = i = 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it's a player's turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coinis the third coin from the top. Then Alice has no winning strategy. In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 1-move. In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move. In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 0-move. in order to alice first move should be 1-move 208. The pacelength P is the distance between the rear of two consecutive footprints. For men, the formula, n/P = 144 gives an approximate relationship between n and P where, n = number of steps per minute and P = pacelength in meters. Bernard knows his pacelength is 164cm. The formula applies to Bernard's walking. Calculate Bernard's walking speed in kmph. n/1.64 = 144 n = (144 * 1.64) = 236.16 No. of steps per minute = 236.16 Distance per minute = (236.16 * 164) cm Distance per minute = 0.3873024 km Distance per hour = 23.238144 Speed = 23.238144 km/h 209. A car is traveling at uniform speed. The driver sees a milestone showing a two digit number which is a perfect square, after traveling for an hour the driver sees another milestone with the same digits in reverse order and after another hour the driver sees another milestone containing the same two digits as part of a three digit number. What is the speed of the car? (A) 30 kmph (B) 40 kmph (C) 50 kmph (D) 60 kmph (E) 45 kmph first milestone driver see is 16,second is 61,&third is 106. so total distance traveled by him=106-16=90km time taken=2h so speed=distance/time=90/2=45kmph hence (e) is the ans. 210. A man divides Rs.8600 among 5 sons, 4 daughters and 2 nephews. If each daughter receives four times as much as each nephew, and each son receives five times as much as each nephew, how much does each daughter receive? Let x be amount with nephew then with daughter 4x and with son 5x as,there are 5 sons,4 daughters, 2 nephews the amount is share in ratio 5*5x:4*4x:2*2x i.e., 25:16:2 total amount is 8600, total parts is 43(it is sum of ratios 25,16,2) so value of x is 8600/43=200 the share of daughter is (16*200)/4 ans:800 211. A garrison of 3300 men has provisions for 32 days when supplied at the rate of 850 g per head. At the end of 7 days, a reinforcement arrives, and it is found that the provisions can last for 17 days more when supplied at the rate of 825 g per head. What is the strength of the reinforcement? (a) 1700 (b) 1000 (c) 3000 (d) 2700 3300 men -> 32 days -> 850 g/head After 7 days, 3300 men -> 25 days -> 850 g/head After reinforcement = 'x' arrives,

(3300+x) men -> 17 days -> 825 g/head Now, men count is inversely proportional to the days for survival So, 3300*850 -> 1/25 (3300+x)*825 -> 1/17 Solving the above two we get, 3300 + x = (3300*850*25)/(17*825) So, x = 5000-3300 = 1700 212. In a flight of 600 km, an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather. Its average speed for the trip was reduced by 200 km/hr and the time of flight increased by 30 minutes. The duration of the flight is: (a) 1 hour (b) 2 hours (c) 3 hours (d) 4 hours suppose avg speed of aircraft is v km/hr,and it takes t hr to trip 600 km. then t=600/v.......(1) now avg speed slowed down by 200 km/hr and it takes 30 more minutes that means now it takes t+30/60=t+1/2 hr and speed is v-200 now time=distance/speed=>t+1/2=600/(v-200) 2t+1=1200/(v-200) (2t+1)(v-200)=1200 (2t+1)((600/t)-200))=1200 from (1) on solving it t= -3/2 or 1 time cant be -ve,hence answer is 1 hr. 213. A garrison of 3300 men has provisions for 32 days when supplied at the rate of 850 g per head. At the end of 7 days, a reinforcement arrives, and it is found that the provisions can last for 17 days more when supplied at the rate of 825 g per head. What is the strength of the reinforcement? (a) 1700 (b) 1000 (c) 3000 (d) 2700 Answer : (a)1700 Now since after 7 days reinforcement arrives,let us first find out how much amount of provisions is left over: (32-7)*3300*0.850 = 70125 So now this amount will suffice for x number of men for 17 days at 0.825kg per head so , x*0.825*17 = 70125. Form this we get x = 5000. So totally number of men is 5000 which gives reinforcement as 5000-3300 = 1700 214. There are two boxes, one containing 10 red balls and the other containing 10 green balls. You are allowed to move the balls between the boxes so that when you choose a box at random and a ball at random from the chosen box, the probability of getting a red ball is maximized. This maximum probability is a)1/2 b)14/19 c)37/38 d)3/4 14/19 1/2 + 1/2 *9/19 = 1/2(1+9/19) =(1/2 )*(28/19) = 14/19 215. A manufacturer undertakes to supply 2000 pieces of a particular component at Rs.25 per piece. According to his estimates, even if 5% fail to pass the quality tests, then he will make a profit of 25%. However, as it turned out, 50% of the components were rejected. What is the loss to the manufacturer? answer : (b)13000 Now as per her assumption of 5% failing , he will sell 1900 at 25rs earning 47500 which is his Selling Price(SP).Consider Cost Price(CP) as x and given profit as 25%, using formula (CP)[1+ profit]=SP we can substitute and find CP as 38000 (this is CP for 2000 goods). Now since only 50% passed test, 1000 goods were sold at 25rs i.e he got 25000. his loss is hence 38000-25000 = 13000 216. A man divides Rs.8600 among 5 sons, 4 daughters and 2 nephews. If each daughter receives four times as much as each nephew, and each son receives five times as much as each nephew, how much does each daughter receive? (a) Rs.800 (b) Rs.600 (c) Rs.200 (d) Rs.700 Let us say each nephew received rupees x So each daughter will get 4x and each son will get 5x There are 2 nephews, 4 daughters and 5 sons So 2(x)+4(2x)+5(5x) = 8600 43x = 8600 x = 200 sp each daughter gets 4x or 4*200 = 800 217. Adam sat with his friends in the Chinnaswamy stadium at Madurai to watch the 100 metres running race organized by the Asian Athletics Association. Five rounds were run.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) provides information technology and management consulting services to organizations in more than 53 countries. The company offers e-business, application development and maintenance, architecture and technology consulting, engineering, security, infrastructure development and management, and quality consulting services. In addition, TCS offers software packages for business functions such as applications for electronic banking, insurance billing, customer relationship management, and hospital management. It caters to finance and banking, insurance, telecommunication, transportation, retail, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and utility industries. The company was founded in 1968 and is based in Mumbai, India. It has more than 150 offices worldwide. TCS operates as a subsidiary of Tata Sons Ltd. In the early 1990s, the Indian IT outsourcing industry grew tremendously due to the Y2K bug and the launch of a unified European currency, Euro. TCS pioneered the factory model for Y2K conversion and developed software tools which automated the conversion process and enabled third-party developers and clients to make use of it.[9] In 1999, TCS saw outsourcing opportunity in E-Commerce and related solutions and set up its E-Business division with ten people. By 2004, EBusiness was contributing half a billion dollars (US) to TCS.[10] On 9 August 2004, TCS became a publicly listed company,[11] much later than its rivals, Infosys, Wipro and Mahindra Satyam. During 2005, TCS ventured into a new area for an Indian IT services company - Bioinformatics.[12] In 2008, the company went through an internal restructuring exercise that executives claim would bring about agility to the organization.[13] In 2011, the company entered the Small and medium enterprises (SME) market with cloud-based offerings.[14 Tata Research Development and Design Center TCS established the first software research center in India, the Tata Research Development and Design Center, in Pune, India in 1981. TRDDC undertakes research in Software engineering, Process engineering and Systems Research. Researchers at TRDDC also developed Master-Craft (now called TCS Code Generator Framework [22]) a Model Driven Development software that can automatically create code based on a model of a software, and rewrite the code based on the user's needs.[23] Research at TRDDC has also resulted in the development of Sujal, a low-cost water purifier that can be manufactured using locally available resources. TCS deployed thousands of these filters in the Indian Ocean Tsunami disaster of 2004 as part of its relief activities.[24] This product has been marketed in India as Tata swach, a low cost water purifier.[25
