b

  • 115. The reason for shifting from petrol/diesel run cars to electric cars is the running cost of maintaining it. Both are implicit.

d

  • 116. The three month period signifies that there is demand for railway tickets and hence advisable to book three months in advance.

The statement does not talk about air tickets and hence II is not implicit as well. Neither assumption is implicit.

c

  • 117. Option [b] justifies the contrary to the given statement and therefore incorrect. Option [a] attempts to challenge the statement. Option [d] is an inference arrived at by negation of the given statement. Option [c] is closest to the meaning of the actual statement.

  • 126. d

Option ‘d’ clearly satisfies the given information without any ambiguity. The statement says that half priced coffee is given on all days when poetry reading is

scheduled and poetry reading takes place almost every Wednesday. Hence the option ‘d’ which says that Zack’s offers half priced coffee on most if not all Wednesdays fully satisfies the statement. Option ’a’ is ruled out because, we have no information about other days to comment on that.Option ‘b’ is ruled out because, no information about poetry reading on other days available to compare Option ‘c’ is ruled out because, it reverses the reasoning, which is incorrect.

ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS

141

D

The answer is “none of these” actually. The answer can be determined

 

and it is 1025. 76 is the CP if selling price is 100. If CP is 779, SP is 1025

142

D

Not enough information about atleast one of their shares

143

C

Simultaneous eqn where one is the multiple of the other

144

A

Can be only A or D since daughter has to be less than 42 for the average

 

to be 42. Only 28 satisfies the condition.

145

A

Same logic as before. Total work is 420. If work has to be done in 21

 

days, per day work has to be 20 units. 20 men are enough

146

D

147

A

Profits are shared in the ratio of the investments. Mansi invested for a

 

year and Kamya for 5 months. (42*12 and 50*5).

148

D

In these problems take the product as the total work. 18*12=216 in this case so that each child does one unit per day. 27 units should be done

each day to complete the work in 8 days (216/8). Hence D

149

B

Again no need to calculate. 78 percent adds upto a lakh. Cannot be option

 

C

as 22 percent should be more. Hence B

150

C

If the ratio were the actual money they shared, C has 5 more than B. So if

C

has 2580more than B, multiplier is 516. But no need to multiply since

the last digits in the answer choices are all different. Last digits will do.

A’s share should end in 8 and D’s share in 0. Last digit has to be 8. Hence

C
