A boy leaves home in the morning to go to school. At the moment he leaves the house he looks at the clock in the mirror. The clock has no number indication and for this reason the boy makes a mistake in interpreting the time (mirror-image). Just assuming the clock must be out of order, the boy cycles to school, where he arrives after twenty minutes. At that moment the clock at school shows a time that is two and a half hours later than the time that the boy saw on the clock at home. At wat time did he reach the school?? A not-so-good clockmaker has four clocks on display in the window. Clock #1 loses 15 minutes every hour. Clock #2 gains 15 minutes every hour relative to Clock #1 (i.e., as Clock #1 moves from 12:00 to 1:00, Clock #2 moves from 12:00 to 1:15). Clock #3 loses 20 minutes every hour relative to Clock #2. Finally, Clock #4 gains 20 minutes every hour relative to Clock #3. If the clockmaker resets all four clocks to the correct time at 12 noon, what time will Clock #4 display after 6 actual hours (when it is actually 6:00 pm that same day)?

What fraction of all students took biology and took chemistry? Jim went to the bakery to buy donuts for his office mates. He chose a quantity of similar donuts, for which he was charged a total of \$15. As the donuts were being boxed, Jim noticed that a few of them were slightly ragged-looking so he complained to the clerk. The clerk immediately apologized and then gave Jim 3 extra donuts for free to make up for the damaged goods. As Jim left the shop, he realized that due to the addition of the 3 free donuts, the effective price of the donuts was reduced by \$2 per dozen. How many donuts did Jim receive in the end?

Question : 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 2move, 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 In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move. 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 should be a 0-move

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 a) 18 b) 27 c) 20 d) 0 Question : 10 people meet and shake hands.

Question : 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
In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move. 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 should be a 0-move

i dont know the answers. They were asked in an practice exam but it wasnt provided with answers. So i put some of the questions here on which i have doubt or wasnt able to solve : Approach: Let the Gold coin be denoted as 0 and the others as 1. Not the order is 11011111111111111111. In this sequence only the first 2 coins above the gold coins can be moved. SO, if Alice start with 1 move, the top coin comes under the 2nd top coin and the order is still the same(110). Case:1)Now if Bob chooses to play, then at any move the top coin will go under the gold coin. Next, Alice can choose a 0 move and then whatever Bob chooses to play the gold coin will come up. Case:2)On the other hand if after the first move of Alice, Bob chooses a 0 move, then whatever be the next move of Alice and Bob the gold coin will be up when it is Alice's turn. So, Alice will have to choose 1 coin. I hope the explanation made sense!!
Question : 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) 2/3 b) 4/9 c) 5/9 d) 1/9

I am not completely sure about this, but my approach: Prob that Ghana (G) wins=2/3 meaning, probability that Ghana loses=1/3 Prob that Bolivia (B) wins=1/3 meaning, prob that it loses =2/3 Palu can predict win for wither of the teams. Therefore, total prob= (Prob that G wins*Prob that B loses) + (Prob that B wins*prob that G loses) = 2/3*1/3 + 1/3*2/3= 2/9+2/9=4/9 Question : Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game.

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

a) 18 b) 27 c) 20 d) 0 Question :

10 people meet and shake hands. The maximum number of handshakes possible if there is to be no "cycle" of handshakes is (A cycle of handshakes is a sequence of k people a1, a2, ......, ak (k > 2) such that the pairs {a1, a2}, {a2, a3}, ......, {ak-1, ak}, {ak, a1} shake hands).

A) 9 b) 7 c) 8 d) 6

I guess, it should be 7. Question :

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?

a)

12/212 1/12 11/12 0

1 letter in improper envelope means that 11 letters have been put in the correct envelopes. So, 12 one will also go in the correct envelope. Probability = 0. Question : 10 suspects are rounded by the police and questioned about a bank
robbery. Only one of them is guilty. The suspects are made to stand in a line and each person declares that the person next to him on his right is guilty. The rightmost person is not questioned. Which of the following possibilities are true?

A. All suspects are lying or the leftmost suspect is innocent. B. All suspects are lying and the leftmost suspect is innocent
Neither A nor B A only Both A and B B only
