In a certain code '13' means 'stop smoking' and '59' means 'injurious habit'
What is the meaning of '9' and '5' respectively in that code ?
I. '157' means 'stop Bad habit'.
II., '839'means 'smoking is injurious'. How do you get answer ?

Solution : solution can be obtained from any of


these two hints. If you take first hint, 59 and
157 have 5 as common number. The common
number denotes habit. Thus 5 means Habit.
If you take 2nd hint, 9 is common between 59
and 839 and the common word is injurious,
thus 9 means injurious. Thus you can use either
of these two statements to answer.

Let A and B be two solid spheres
such that the surface area of B is
300% higher than the surface
area of A. The volume of A is
found to be k% lower than the
volume of B. The value of k must
be

5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 44
solution

Surface area of sphere : 4pi*r*r


if we assume smaller sphere of R=1 and larger
sphere of R=2, then our condition is fulfilled.
Now find volume of the two spheres :
4/3*pi*r*r*r so the ratio of the bigger and
smaller spheres are : 8:1 thus volume of A is
lower by : 7/8*100 = 85% anwer

A shopkeeper increases price of
an item by 20% and then gives a
discount of 20% on new price.
What is the net impact ?

Let us assume that initial price is 100, new price is 120


now 20% discout is applied from 120
120 -24 = 96
thus we can see that there is a net impact of - 4%.
in short : 20% multiplied to 20% gives -4% ans.

Raju had to add two digits, but by mistake he
multiplied these two digits and got 56. He was again
asked to add these two digits, but this time he squared
up these numbers and found their difference, it was
15. what will you get if you find the correct answer ?
X* Y = 56
X^2 – Y^2 = 15
(x+Y) (X-Y) = 15
now try with options at this stage. Take factors of 56,
which are : 2*2*2*7
the factors could be : 4*14 or 8*7
so X = 8 and Y = 7, their difference is 1 and X +Y = 15,
so the correct answer is 15. answer

Mayank swims across a river a distance of 200
meters 12 minutes, but he can also swim with
the current in water same distance in 5
minutes. What is his speed in still water?
Formula = (Distance ) / (Time ) = speed
while going accross the river, the speed is : X-Y= a
( 200/12)= 16.66 , where X is Mayank's speed and Y =
water's speed
while with the water, the speed is X + Y = b (200/5) = 40
the speed of Mayank is average of 40 and 16.66 = 28.33
and the speed of water is (40-16.66)/2 = 11.66 m. Per

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.

A had to buy some nuts. He buys half the nuts
required. He takes them and his son steals half of
these. Out of remaining, his daughter steals half. Now
when A is fired by his boss that he had brought
exactly 70 less than what was required. What is the
ratio of nuts brought and to be brought?
Suppose he buys 24 nuts instead of 48. his son
takes away 12 and his daughter takes away 6
out of the remaining. He finally has 42 less
than required. Thus original requirements :
70/42* 48 = 80
thus ratio is : 1:8 answer (you may assume any
numbers but answer will be same).

interest, but the other got 5% half yearly
compounding interest. At the end of 2 years, their
amounts had difference of Rs. 10, what was the

Based on the data given below,
find out sale of Raju TV store.

1990 was the first year, when Raju TV sold


100 TV. Every person who buys TV buys
again after 4 years. Raju sells 400, 600, 800
TV in 94, 98, 99 respectively. There was no
new customer in 2000, but the sale was simple
average of sale of 1990 and 1994. How many
TV did Raju TV sold in 1996.
5 DECEMBER 09 www.afterschool.tk 93
solution....

Average of 1990 and 1994 = 250


no new customer in 2000, so 250 TV will be
sold as repeat customers.
Thus sale in 1996 = 250 TV.

A went to buy 2 shirts and 1 trousers. He carried Rs. 1000 with
him (just sufficient) . The ratio of prices of shirt and trouser is :
7:6. however, he purchased 2 trousers and 1 shirt and returned
back with Rs. 50 also. What will he pay, if he buys 2 shirts and
3 trousers?

2 Shirt + 1 Trousers = 1000


1 shirt + 2 trousers = 950
1 shirt – 1 trousers = 50, Now from 1st equation: 2 trousers + 1
trousers + Rs. 100 = 900
thus 1 trousers = 300 and 1 shirt = 350.
he will spend 700+900 = 1600 answer.

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 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
