Question 1: The ages of Ram and Mukta are in the ratio of 3 : 5. After 9 years, the ratio of their ages will becomes 3 :4. The present age of Mukta (in years) is. [Assistant Grade]

(a) 9 years
(b) 18 years
(c) 15 years
(d) 24 years

Answer: Let Rams age = 3x & Muktas age = 5x.

 \frac{3x + 9}{5x + 9}=\frac{3}{4}

so 4\times \left ( 3x+9 \right )3 \left ( 5x+9 \right )

Hence x= 3.

Muktas age = 15 years.

Question 2: Two trains are running at 40 km/hr and 20 km/hr respectively in the same direction. Fast train completely passes a man sitting in the slower train in 5 seconds. What is the length of the fast train?

(a) 23 m
(b) \frac{250}{9}m
(c) 23.22 m
(d) 29 m

Answer: Relative speed = (40 - 20) km/hr

=\left ( 20\times \frac{5}{18} \right )m/sec=\left ( \frac{50}{9} \right )m/sec

Length of faster train ==\left ( 5\times \frac{50}{9} \right )m=\left ( \frac{250}{9} \right )m

Question 3: A passenger train takes two hours less for a journey of 300 km if its speed is increased by 5 km/hr from its normal speed. The normal speed is

(a) 35 km/hr
(b) 50 km/hr
(c) 25 km/hr
(d) 30 km/hr

Answer: Let the normal speed by x km/hr

Then,  \frac{300}{x}- \frac{300}{x+5}=2 Solving x = 25

Question 4: The average of first seven prime numbers is :

(a) 8.29
(b) 5.25
(c) 10
(d) 15

Answer: Average =\frac{2+3+5+7+11+13+17}{7}=\frac{58}{7}=8.29

Question 5: Three unbiased coins are tossed. What is the probability of getting at most two heads?

(a) \frac{7}{8}
(b) \frac{5}{8}
(c) \frac{3}{8}
(d) \frac{1}{8}

Answer: Here S = {TTT, TTH, THT, HTT, THH, HTH, HHT, HHH}

Let E = event of getting at most two heads.


\therefore P(E)=\frac{N(E)}{N(S)}=\frac{7}{8}

Question 6: If 7 : x = 17.5 : 22.5 , then the value of x is:

(a) 9
(b) 6
(c) 7.5
(d) 5.5

Answer:  7\times 22.5 = x\times 17.5

x =  7\times \frac{22.5}{17.5}

x = 9.

Question 7: Find the least number exactly divisible by 12, 15, 20 and 27.

(a) 240
(b) 540
(c) 440
(d) 640

Answer: L.C.M = 3 × 4 × 5 × 9 = 540.

Hence, required number is 540.

Question 8: The reflex angle between the hands of a clock at 10.25 :

(a) 180^{\circ}
(b) 192\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}
(c) 195^{\circ}
(d) 197\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}

Answer: Angle traced by hour hand in \frac{125}{12}hrs=(\frac{360}{12}\times \frac{125}{12})^{\circ}=312\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}

Angle traced by minute hand in 25 min

(\frac{360}{60}\times 25^{\circ})=150^{\circ}

\therefore Reflex angle=360^{\circ}-(312\frac{1}{2}-150)^{\circ}=360^{\circ}-162\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}=197\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}

Question 9: On what dates of April 2005 did Tuesday fall?

(a) 4th
(b) 5th
(c) 6th
(d) 7th
(e) 8th

Answer: First we find the day on 1.04.2005

1.04.2005 = (2004 years + period From 1.01.2005 to 1.04.2005)

Odd days in 2000 years = 0

4 years = (1 leap year + 3 ordinary years)

= (1 × 2 + 3 × 1) odd days = 5 odd days

Jan Feb Mar Apr
31 + 28 + 31 + 1 = 91 days = (13 weeks) = 0 odd day

Total number of odd days = (0 + 5) = 5 odd days

On 1.04.2005 was Friday, so Tuesday lies on 5.04.2005

Hence, Tuesday lies on 5th of April, 2005.

Question 10: Kishan bought a certain quantity of rice at the rate of Rs.150 per quintal and 10% of the rice was spoiled. At what price should he sell the remainder to gain 20% of his outlay?

(a) Rs. 190 per quintal
(b) Rs. 200 per quintal
(c) Rs. 210 per quintal
(d) Rs. 215 per quintal

Answer: CP = 1 quintal = Rs. 150

Spoilage = 10% of 1 quintal = 0.1 quintal

Qty. available for sale = 0.9

Desired SP of 0.9 quintals = 150 \times 1.2 = Rs. 180

\Rightarrow SP of 1 quintal = Rs. 200

If an assessment is made of time they spent in gossiping, drinking tea, eating "pan" and smoking cigarettes, it will be shocking to know that the time devoted to actual work is negligible. The problem is the standard which the leadership in administration sets for the staff. Forgot the ministers because they mix politics and administration. What do top bureaucrats do? What do the below down officials do? The administration set up remains week mainly because the employees do not have the right example to follow and they are more concerned about being in the good books of the bosses than doing work.

(d) Neither 1 nor 2 is implicit
(e) Both 1 and 2 are implicit

Answer: Clearly, the comparison could not be made without knowing the sale of all the radio sets. So, I is implicit. The statement mentions only that the sale is largest and nothing is mentioned about the manufacture. So, 2 is not implicit.

Question 26: Statement: A very large number of students have failed in the final high school examination due to faulty questions in one of the subjects.
Courses of Action:
1. All the students who have failed in the subject should be allowed to take supplementary examination.

Choice d describes a situation in which the batter, Mario, is still at the plate waiting for the next pitch.
