Fabric X has to go through three stages of manufacturing viz spinning, weaving and dyeing. In Anil Textiles company, there are six spinning machines, ten weaving machines and five dying machines. Each machine works for 10 hrs a day. One unit of Fabric X needs 40 minutes on a spinning machine 2 hours on a weaving machine and 30 minutes on a dyeing machine in order to be completed. Similarly one unit of Fabric Y needs 60 minutes on a spinning machine 30 minutes on a weaving machine and 60 minutes on a dyeing machine in order to be completed. In a day, how many units of Fabrie Y can be completed at most?

Spin : (6 * 10 ) /1 = 60 unit Weav : (10*10) / .5 = 200 units Dye : (5*10)/ 1= 50 thus 50 units (the least) of fabric Y can be made in a day. Ans.

In a tournament Indian Hockey team plays 2 matches each with West Indies and Australia. The probability of getting 0, 1 and 2 points (India) is 0.45, 0.05 and 0.50 respectively. Assuming outcomes are independent what is the probability of India getting at least 07 point?
India will get 7 points if it wins 3 matches and draws 1 match. India will get 8 points if it wins all 4 matches. The probability of getting 8 points : .5*.5*.5*.5 (all wins) = . 0625 probability of getting 7 points :(3 win+1 draw) (.5*.5*.5*.05) +(.5*.5*.05*.5 )+ (.5*.05*.5*.5 )+( .05*.5*.5*.5) = .03 thus total probabilty (add probability for 7 point and 8 point) = .0925

A,B,C speak one statement true and one false. A says to B : “I am a thief.” 2. “You are a Doctor.” B: “Yes, I am a doctor” “C is a thief.” C adds : 1. “ I am a theif.” “B is a Doctor.” Who is theif ?
Let us suppose A's 1st statemet is right, 2nd statement is wrong. Thus B's 1st statement is false and 2nd right. C's 2nd statement is false, thus 1st is correct. Here there are two theifs – A and C. If we assume A's 2nd statement to be correct, then A is not a theif, and no one is a theif. Thus either no one is theif or A+C both are theives. Logically , NO ONE is theif here.

Now gap between A and B is 4 Km. Divide 4 by (2+3) = 4/5 = .8 , so they will meet at 10 + (.8 * 60) = 48 minutes. So They wil meet at 10 + 48 min. Ans

A puts an item at 10% discount, before doing this he had actually increased the marked price by 10%, what is the change in his revenue?
Let us assume that the earlier marked price is 100. add 10% = 110, now A reduces it by 10% (10% discount on marked price) so he gets 110-11 = 99 thus there is 1% reduction in his revenue or (10% * 10% = 1%)

A takes up 2 types of rice – one at 10 per kg and another at 50 per kg, how should he mix these to get a profit of 20% when he sells them @ 30 per KG?
Sale price is 30, so cost should be 30*100/120 = 25 in order to get the ratio of mixture, let us deduct 25 from 10 and 50, we get : 15 and 25, now reverse these ratio : 25:15 or 5:3, thus rice of the rate 10 should be 5/(5+3) = 5/8 and rice of rate 50 should be 3/8 or their ratio should be 5:3 answer.

A and B are partners and share profit in the capital ratio of 3:2, however, A withdraws his half of the money after 5 months, and B doubles his money after 8 months, what is the final profit sharing ratio?

For first six months, the capitals are in the ratio of 3:2, but now there is some change. A withdraws 1.5 and after 2 more months, B adds 2 more. Thus (3*6months + 1.5*6months) : (2*8 months + 4*4months) 27: 32 answer

A:B = 2:3, C:D = 3:4, B:D = 3:2, what is A:C?
In A:B and B:D, we have B common, so A:B:D = 2:3:2 We know that C:D is 3:4, so keep the value of D as 4, thus new ratio is : A:B:C:D = 4:6:3:4 thus A:C = 4:3 answer

A and B have salary in the ratio of 10:11, but their savings are in the ratio : 3:7, but now their salaries increase by 100% each. If earlier their total savings was Rs. 2100, what is their new savings, if they dont change their expenditure and they spend equal amounts? Their total savings : 2100, so A saves 3/10 *2100 = 630 and B saves : 7/10 * 2100 = 1470 difference of their savings is : 840, so A should earn 840 *10 = 8400 and spend (8400-630) = 7770 and B should earn 9240 and save (9240-1470) = 7770. thus their new incomes are : 16800 and 18480 and new savings are : (16800 – 7770) = 9030 and (18480-7770) = 10710 answer

A and B run a race and A gives B a start of 100 meters in 1000 meter race, still A wins by 1 second or 1 meters. What is the ratio of their speeds?
B takes 1 second to cover 1 meters, so his speed is 3600 meters per KM or 3.6 km per hour. He has actually run 900 meters only. He should take 900/3600*60 = 15 minutes A has run 1000 meters in 14 minutes and 59 seconds. So his speed is 40 KM per hour approx. Thus the ratio of their speed is 40:36 or 10:9 answer

Which is more 3^1/3 or 4^1/4?
Let us take the two powers : 1/3 and 1/4, let us now get same powers. LCM of 3,4 is 12, so let us multiply them by 4/4 and 3/3, we get : 4/12 and 3/12. we can now solve the numerator powers : so answer is : 81^1/12 and 64^1/12 now we can see that 81^1/12 is bigger, so the answer is 3^1/3 is bigger than 4^1/4

Ravi sees a photo and says that “this is the photo of younger son of the brother of the grandson of the father of the brother of the mother of my sister”, whose photo was it? This is the photo of nephew of Ravi (son of Ravi's cousin) answer In order to solve such questions, start from last, and try to solve each relationship in simple terms or prepare a tree diagram from these statements. For example, : brother of the mother of my sister = maternal uncle – so similarly replace all these sentences.
