The water from second outlet, flowing at a constant rate can fill up the same pool in approximately in 5 hours. If both the outlets are used at the same time, approximately what is the number of hours required to fill the pool? ans: (1/A) + (1/B) = 1/T So when you solved, and got 14/45, that was equal to 1/T. To find T, you need to take the reciprocal; T = 45/14, (3.21) u 2) If 75 % of a class answered the first question on a certain test correctly, 55 percent answered the second question on the test correctly, and 20 percent answered neither of the questions correctly, what percentage answered both correctly? ans: n(a ^ b) =n(a)+n(b)-n(a v b) = 0.75+0.55-0.8 = 0.5 (50%) 3) A student's average ( arithmetic mean) test score on 4 tests is 78. What must be the students score on a 5th test for the students average score on the 5th test to be 80? ans: 4 tests sum=78*4=312 5 tests sum=80*5=400 then 5th test score=400-312=88 (88) 4) Rural households have more purchasing power than do urban households at the same income level, since some of the income urban and suburban households use for food and shelter can be used by the rural households for other needs. Which of the following inferences is best supported by the statement made above? (A) The average rural household includes more people than does the average urban or suburban household. (B) Rural households have lower food and housing costs than do either urban or suburban households. (C) Suburban households generally have more purchasing power than do either rural or urban households. (D) The median income of urban and suburban households is generally higher than that of rural households. (E) All three types of households spend more of their income on housing than on all other purchases combined. ans: B 5) Jose is a student of horticulture in the University of Hose. In a horticultural experiment in his final year, 200 seeds were planted in plot I and 300 were planted in plot II. If 57% of the seeds in plot I germinated and 42% of the seeds in plot II germinated, what percent of the total number of planted

seeds germinated? ans: 200 * 57 % = 114 and 300* 42% = 126. Total = 240 out of 500. (48%). 6) A closed cylindrical tank contains 36 pie cubic feet of water and its filled to half its capacity.

Because the parasite cannot travel to a new generation of red blood cells.5/200 = 25/200 = 1/8 = 0. this is no reflection on the examinee. rather than changes in the material properties of the string. Which of the following. How many members are there in the swim club? ans: Suppose there are x members.2*0. non pass members arre 7x/10 which are equal to 12 + 30 = 42 7x/10 = 42 x = 60 There are 60 members in that club 33) A necklace is made by stringing N individual beads together in the repeating pattern red bead. such a judgment means that the test has failed to show whether the examinee was truthful or untruthful. If 1 person is to be randomly selected from 2500 people. Rather.150 = 2 * 5 * 5 * 11 * 13 so there are 4 distinct prime numbers that are below 100 28) Guitar Strings often go dead . 12 have taken the preparatory course and 30 have not taken the course. Among the members who have not passed the test. which are less frequently eliminated from a person’s body than are red blood cells. If the necklace begins with a red bead and ends . most seriously weakens the conclusion above? ans: In some cases. were responsible. and 7 percent invest in both municipal bonds and oil stocks. white bead. what is the probability that the person selected will be one who invests in municipal bonds but not in oil stocks ans: 7/25 31) When a polygraph test is judged inconclusive. 35 percent invest in municipal bonds.after a few weeks of intense use.become less responsive and bright in tone . 30) Among a group of 2500 people. 18 percent invest in oil stocks. Nevertheless.(50. the parasite that causes malarial fever travels to cells of the spleen. any fever that develops in a person more than 120 days after that person has moved to a malaria free region is not due to malarial parasite.125 27) How many prime numbers between 1 and 100 are factors of 7150? ans: 7.49)/199.

the diameter of the conins should be at least 64 mm and not exceed 512 mm. A(1)=1.1. A(5)=A(4)-A(3)=-1-0=- In a sequence of integers.0. how many coins can you desing 1st coin=64cm 2nd "=64+32(50% of 64)=96cm . Calculate S(1000).. now we have to find sum of 1000 terms. the rupee notes are cubical in shape while their conis are spherical. 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. however the coni minting machinery lays out some stipulations on the size of the coins. the diameter of the coin must allways be an integer you are asked to disign a set of coins of different diameters with these requirements and your goal is to desing as many coins as possible.where A(n) is the nth term in the sequence. A(6)=A(5)-A(4)=-1-(-1)=0. given a conin the diameter of the next larger coin is at least 50% greater . similarliy.(as consider 1.-1.(arrangement of points is your choice) Now Answer Is: For Maximize: The number of methods. If it will be allowed to draw the points in a line then minimum possibilities will be 2 only.e 166*6=996 terms) so the sum of first 996 terms is 0.A(2)=1...after that 4 terms come i. Points should be drawn in the circumference of the CIRCLE So answer would be the number of total point in the plane. n is an integer and n>=3..A(4)=A(3)-A(2) many such functions with degree >2 exist does not exist. 7 planet four firesides in 4-dimensional space and thus the currency used by it's residentds are 3dimensional objects.0 as one sequence... after 6th term seq is repeating like. because if we take all points in a line then you can separate only the corner points from the others.-1.after every 6 terms so the sum of these 6 terms are 1+1+0+(-1)+(-1)+0=0..... sum of first 600 terms is 0. Min = 3 for 19 max= 19 Min = 3 f(x)=f(f(x))=f(x^2).A(2)=1. A(3)=A(2)-A(1) acc to the given formula A(n)=A(n-1)-A(n-2) A(3)=1-1=0. A(n)=A(n-1)-A(n-2) consider 166 seq i... For example If we have 10 points then maximum possibilities = 10 and minimum = 3 similarly for 5 points Max = 5.e 1. check it now A(1)=1.1.0.-1 so the sum of last 4 terms = 1+1+0+(-1)=1... where S(1000) is the sum of first 1000 terms.
