This is a simple common sense based question: We will be given a container/vessel/bucket in which liquid is getting doubled after a given time period and we need to find the time to fill it completely. Example There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 liter every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40,80, 160…..in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 liters, second hour it has 20 liters and so on). If tank B is 1/32 filled in 21 hours, what is total duration of hours required to fill it completely? a) 26 B)25 c)5 d)27 Solution: Just forget about tank A. The water in tank B is doubled every hour. 1/32 filled in 21 hours (Given) => 1/16 filled in 22nd hour => 1/8 filled in 23rd hour => 1/4 filled in 24th hour => 1/2 filled in 25th hour => 1 filled in 26th hour i.e COMPLETELY FILLED Answer : option a Shortcut Method: See the initial state of the tank B as 1/2^5 (1/2^5=1/32) . Now add this exponent i.e 5 to given hours i.e 21, so ans is 21+5=26 hours. You can try the questions with similar pattern: 2. There are two pipes A and B. If A filled 10 liters in an hour, B can fill 20 liters in same time. Likewise B can fill 10, 20, 40, 80, 160…... If B filled in 1/16 of a tank in 3 hours, how much time will it take to fill the tank completely? a) 9 B)8 c)7 d)6 3. There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 liter every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40,80, 160…..in tank B. 1/8 th of the tank B is filled in 22 hours. What is the time to fill the tank fully? a) 26 B)25 c)5 d)27 4. A tank is filled with water. In first hour 10 liters, second hours 20 liters, and third hour 40 liters and so on…If time taken to fill ¼ of the tank if 5 hours. What is the time taken to fill up the tank? a) 5 B)8 c)7 d)12.5

(2/3) of a number is 4 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)8 c)36 d)24 5. (1/3) of a number is 6 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)18 c)36 d)24 4. (1/2) of a number is 3 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)7 c)8 d)9 Solution: Let the number be x. The equation will be: x/2=3+x/6 => x/2-x/6=3 => 2x/6=3 i.e x=9 (Option d) You can try the questions with similar pattern: 2. (1/3) of a number is 5 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)36 c)30 d)72 . (1/3) of a number is 3 more than the (1/6) of the same number? a) 6 b)16 c)18 d)21 3. what is the time taken to fill up the tank completely? a) 21 B)38 c)57 d)76 Posted by THe GEEK at 20:22 0 comments Email This BlogThis! Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Google Buzz Pattern: Find unknown x This type of questions are very simple and require you to fin the value of x by substitution of the given condition: Example: 1. If a tank A can be filled within 10 hours and tank B can be filled ¼ in 19 hours then.5.
