Two equal glasses are respectively 1/4th and 3/5th full of milk. They are then filled up with water and the contents are mixed in another glass. Find the ratio of milk and water in another glass.
» Explain it
C
 Part of milk in the first glass = 1 th 4

 Part of water in first glass = 3 th 4

 Part of milk in second glass = 3 th 5

 Part of water in second glass = 2 th 5

Part of milk in final mixture
 = 1 + 3 = 5 + 12 = 17 4 5 20 20

Part of water in final mixture
 = 3 + 2 = 15 + 8 = 23 4 5 20 20

 Reqd. ratio = 17 : 23 = 17 : 23 20 20

Hence, option (C) is correct.

Four years ago, average of the ages of Pinki, Rinki and Tinki was 26 years. Average of the present ages of Rinki and Tinki is 28 years. Present age of Pinki is what percent of the present average age of all of them.
» Explain it
B
Sum of the present ages of Pinki, Rinki and Tinki = 26 × 3 + 4 × 3 = 90

 Present average age = 90 = 30 years 3

Sum of the present ages of Rinki and Tinki = 2 × 28 = 56 years

Age of Pinki = 90 – 56 = 34 years

 Reqd. % = 34 × 100 = 113.33% 30

Hence, option (B) is correct.

3
Simple interest on a sum of Rs.50000 at the rate of 15% per annum after two years will be what percent of compound interest on that sum at the same rate of interest for the same time period.
» Explain it
D
 CI = P ( 1 + r ) n – P 100

 ⇒ CI = 50000 × 115 × 115 – 50000 100 100

⇒ CI = 66125 – 50000

⇒ CI = Rs.16125
 SI = P × r × t 100

 ⇒ SI = 50000 × 15 × 2 = Rs. 15000 100

 Reqd. % = 15000 × 100 = 93.02% 16125

Hence, option (D) is correct.

4
The diameter of each wheel of a car is 70 cm. If each wheel rotates 400 times per minute, then the speed of the car (in km/hr) is (Take π = 22/7) :
» Explain it
A
 Circumference of wheel = 2πr = 2 × 22 × 70 7 2
= 220cm = 2.2m Distance covered per minute = 400 × 2.2 = 880m
 Distance covered per second = 880 m/s 60

 Therefore Speed of car (in km/hr) = 880 × 18 60 5
= 52.8 km/hr

Hence, option A is correct.

5
12500 students appeared in an exam. 50% of the boys and 70% of the girls cleared the examination. If the total percent of students qualifying is 60%, how many girls appeared in the exam?
» Explain it
D
Let the number of boys be ‘B’ and girls be ‘G’
As per the condition B + G = 12500 …..(1)
 And 50 B + 70 G = 60 × 12500 100 100 100

⇒ 5B + 7G = 75000 …..(2)
From ….(1) and ….(2)
We get, G = 6250 = number of girls

Hence, option (D) is correct.
