A. 814.9 km
B. 812.3 km
C. 813.3 km
D. 821.23 km
E. None of these
Explanation :
Day | Total distance | By bus |
Day1 | 25% of 3000 = 750 km | 30% of 750 = 225 km |
Day2 | 15% of 3000 = 450 km | 25% of 450 = 112.5 km |
Day3 | 20% of 3000 = 600 km | 45% of 600 = 270 km |
Day4 | 10% of 3000 = 300 km | 20% of 300 = 60 km |
Day5 | 18% of 3000 = 540 km | 15% of 540 = 81 km |
Day6 | 12% of 3000 = 360 km | 18% of 360 = 64.8 km |
Total = 813.3 km |
Hence, option C is correct.
2. If everywhere Ola maintains an average speed of 40 km per hour then what is the total time (In hour) in six days spent on Ola? (approximately)
A. 25 hours
B. 26 hours
C. 27 hours
D. 28 hours
E. 28.5 hours
Explanation :
The total distance travelled by Ola = 1084.2 km
Speed = 40 km per hr
Time = | 1084.2 | = 27.105 ≈ 27 hrs |
40 |
Day | Total distance | By Ola |
Day1 | 25% of 3000 = 750 km | 45% of 750 = 337.5 km |
Day2 | 15% of 3000 = 450 km | 35% of 450 = 157.5 km |
Day3 | 20% of 3000 = 600 km | 15% of 600 = 90 km |
Day4 | 10% of 3000 = 300 km | 20% of 300 = 60 km |
Day5 | 18% of 3000 = 540 km | 60% of 540 = 324 km |
Day6 | 12% of 3000 = 360 km | 32% of 360 = 115.2 km |
Total = 1084.2 km |
Hence, option C is correct.
3. The distance travelled by Ola is approximately how much percentage of the distance travelled by Uber? (round off two decimal)
A. 97.21%
B. 102.32%
C. 98.34%
D. 99.91%
E. 106.29%
Explanation :
The total distance travelled by Ola = 1084.2 km
The total distance travelled by Uber = 3000 – 813.3 – 1084.2 = 1102.5 KM
The reqd. % = | 1084.2 × 100 | = 98.34% |
1102.5 |
Hence, option C is correct.
4. Suppose, Instead of Bus, the person uses Ola and the speed of Ola is 25% more than the speed of bus then approximately how many hours the person would save? (The average speed of bus is 30 km per hour)
A. 6.8 hours
B. 7.2 hours
C. 4.6 hours
D. 5.4 hours
E. 4.8 hours
Explanation :
The average speed of bus is 30 km per hour then the average speed of Ola
= | 30 × 125 | = 37.5 km |
100 |
The total distance travelled by bus = 813.3 km
The reqd. time = | 813.3 | – | 813.3 |
30 | 37.5 |
= 813.3 × | 7.5 | = 5.422 hours |
30 × 37.5 |
= 5.4 hours approximately
Hence, option D is correct.
5. Suppose, on the first day, the person travelled for 18 hours and each day he decreases the traveling time by 2 hours then what can be the average speed of the person during the entire period?
A. 38 | 6 | km per hour |

13 |
C. 36 | 2 | km per hour |
13 |
D. 37 | 8 | km per hour |
13 |
E. None of these
Explanation :
Total distance = 3000 km
Total time = 18 + 16+ 14 + 12 + 10 + 8 = 78 hours
The average speed = | total distance |
total time |
= | 3000 | = | 500 | = 38 | 6 | km per hour |
78 | 13 | 13 |
Hence, option A is correct.

D. Rs. 2900
E. None of these
B. Rs. 2500
C. Rs. 2700
D. Rs. 2900
E. None of these
Explanation :
Let the CP of the cooler = 100x
First SP = 92% of 100x = 92x
Second SP = 111% of 100x = 111x = 92x + 475
⇒ 19x = 475
⇒ x = 25
MP of cooler = 116% of 100x = 116x = 116 × 25 = Rs. 2900
Hence, option (D) is correct.
Hence, option (D) is correct.
2. If shopkeeper marked Oven 10% above CP and Geyser 20% above CP and also the CP of Oven is half of the CP of Geyser then find the amount of discount offered by shopkeeper on oven if gained Rs.1000 on selling Geyser?

C. Rs. 1480
D. Rs. 1200
E. None of these
B. Rs. 1575
C. Rs. 1480
D. Rs. 1200
E. None of these
Explanation :
Let CP of Geyser = 100x
SP of Geyser = 110% of 100x = 110x
Profit = 110x – 100x = 10x = 1000 (Given)
⇒ x = 100
CP of oven = | 100x | = 50x |
2 |
= 50 × 100 = Rs. 5000
MP of oven = 110% of 5000 = Rs. 5500
Discount on oven = 25% of 5500 = Rs.1375
Hence, option (A) is correct.
Hence, option (A) is correct.

E. None of these
B. Rs. 25000
C. Rs. 35000
D. Rs. 20000
E. None of these
Explanation :
Let CP of AC and Television is ‘100x’ and ‘100y’ respectively.
SP of AC = 108% of 100x = Rs. 108x
SP of Television = 112% of 100x = Rs. 112y
From the question-
⇒ 100x – 100y = 15000 …………. (1)
⇒ 108x – 112y = 15400 …………. (2)
From (1) and (2)-
⇒ x = 350 and y = 200
Cost price of A.C. = 100x = 100 × 350 = Rs.35000
Hence, option (C) is correct.
4. Find the overall profit or loss per cent approximately made by a customer who bought 1 AC set and 1 cooler set. Cost price of 1 AC set is Rs. 30000 and cost price of 1 cooler set is Rs. 5000.
A. 5.71%
B. 2.77%
C. 2.41%
D. 3.24%
E. None of these
Explanation :
B. 2.77%
C. 2.41%
D. 3.24%
E. None of these
Explanation :
Total CP = 30000 + 5000 = Rs.35000
SP of AC = 108% of 30000 = Rs.32400
SP of cooler = 92% of 5000 = Rs.4600
Total SP = 32400 + 4600 = Rs.37000
Total profit% = | 37000 – 35000 | × 100 ≈ 5.71 |
35000 |
Hence, option (A) is correct.
5. Find the total amount paid by a customer after purchasing 1 oven and 1 fridge if the shopkeeper marked the oven up by 15% and he gains 8% on the fridge. Cost price of oven is Rs.15000 and marked price of fridge is Rs.11500.

E. None of these
B. Rs. 23737.5
C. Rs. 22500
D. Rs. 28737.5
E. None of these
Explanation :
CP of Fridge = 11500 × | 100 | = Rs. 10000 |
115 |
SP of Fridge = 108% of 10000 = Rs.10800
MP of oven = 115% of 15000 = Rs.17250
SP of oven = 75% of 17250 = Rs.12937.5
Total amount paid by customer = SP of Fridge + SP of oven = 10800 + 12937.5 = Rs.23737.5

D. 15.50
E. 12.54
B. 13.45
C. 11.11
D. 15.50
E. 12.54
Explanation :
Rate of interest for Amit = | 6 × 3 | = 9% |
2 |
Let the principal invested by Amit be Rs. x
So,
= x + x × 9 × | 5 | = 29000 |
100 |
= 100x + | 45x | = 29000 |
100 |
= 145x = 29000 × | 100 |
145 |
= x = 20000
Amount invested by Amit = Rs 20000
To double the invested the time required
Let the time be x
= 20000 × | 100 | |
9 × 20000 |
= 11.11 years.
Hence, option C is correct.
2. If the difference between the interest received by Ankit and Sourav is Rs 4200 and Ankit invested his money for double the time period for which Sourav invested his money then find the amount received by Ankit ?
A. Rs. 30000
B. Rs. 28600
C. Rs. 29600
D. Rs. 35400
E. Rs. 35540
Explanation :

C. Rs. 29600
D. Rs. 35400
E. Rs. 35540
Explanation :
Let the time for which Sourav invested be x years
So the time for which Ankit invested = 2x years
So, Interest received by Ankit
Interest received by Sourav
So, 3200x – 1800x = 4200
1400x = 4200
x = 3 years
So, Interest received by Ankit
Total amount received by Ankit = Rs. (20000 + 9600) = Rs 29600
Hence, option C is correct.
Interest received by Amit = 29000 – 14500 = Rs 14500
Let the rate of interest for Amit be x
According to question,
= x = 20%
Amount he will if compounded half yearly for 2 years
Hence, option E is correct.
Rate = 10%
Interest for 1st year
Principal for 2nd year= 60000 + 6000 = Rs 66000
Interest for second year
Total interest received by Anita = 6600 + 6000 = Rs 12600
So,
Anita will receive (12600 – 12000) = Rs 600 more interest.
Hence, option A is correct.
5. If the interest received by Anita is Rs 7575 more than interest received by Piku and the rate of interest received by Anita 2% more than the rate of interest received by Arun then find the interest rate received by Piku ?
Explanation :
Let the rate of interest received by Piku be x

Hence, option C is correct.
Explanation :
Students handled by Mehandi on Monday = 40% of 180 = 72 Students handled by Mehandi on Tuesday = 70% of 270 = 189
Students handled by Mehandi on Wednesday = 50% of 150 = 75
Students handled by Mehandi on Thursday = 45% of 240 = 108
Students handled by Mehandi on Friday = 60% of 225 = 135
Students handled by Mehandi on Saturday = 30% of 210 = 63
On Saturday Mehandi handled minimum number of students.
Hence, option D is correct.
Explanation :
Number of students handled by Mehandi on Monday and Tuesday together = 72 + 189 = 261
Number of students handled by Supriya on Wednesday and Friday = 50% of 150 + 40% of 225 = 165
Therefore, respected ratio = 87: 55
Hence, option E is correct.
So the time for which Ankit invested = 2x years
So, Interest received by Ankit
= 8 × 2x × | 20000 | = Rs. 3200x |
100 |
Interest received by Sourav
= 6 × x × | 30000 | = Rs. 1800x |
100 |
So, 3200x – 1800x = 4200
1400x = 4200
x = 3 years
So, Interest received by Ankit
= 8 × 6 × | 20000 | = Rs. 9600 |
100 |
Total amount received by Ankit = Rs. (20000 + 9600) = Rs 29600
Hence, option C is correct.

C. Rs. 21292.45
D. Rs. 21929.45
E. Rs. 21229.45
Explanation :
Amount invested by Amit = | 29000 | = 14500 |
2 |
Interest received by Amit = 29000 – 14500 = Rs 14500
Let the rate of interest for Amit be x
According to question,
= x = | 14500 ×100 | |
14500 × 5 |
= x = 20%
Amount he will if compounded half yearly for 2 years
= 14500 | ( | 1 + | 10 | ) | ^{4} |
100 |
= 14500 × | 11 | × | 11 | × | 11 | × | 11 | = Rs. 21229.45 | ||
10 | 10 | 10 | 10 |
Hence, option E is correct.
4. If the interest received by Anita is 20% of the sum invested by her then find how much more money as interest she would have earned if she had invested the money in compound interest?
A. Rs. 600
B. Rs. 130
C. Rs. 200
D. Rs. 1500
E. Rs. 700
Explanation :
Interest received by Anita
B. Rs. 130
C. Rs. 200
D. Rs. 1500
E. Rs. 700
Explanation :
Interest received by Anita
= | 20 × 60000 | = Rs. 12000 |
100 |
Rate = 12000 × | 100 | × 60000 |
2 |
Rate = 10%
Interest for 1st year
= 60000 × 10 × | 1 | = Rs. 6000 |
100 |
Principal for 2nd year= 60000 + 6000 = Rs 66000
Interest for second year
= 66000 × 10 × | 1 | = Rs. 6600 |
100 |
Total interest received by Anita = 6600 + 6000 = Rs 12600
So,
Anita will receive (12600 – 12000) = Rs 600 more interest.
Hence, option A is correct.
5. If the interest received by Anita is Rs 7575 more than interest received by Piku and the rate of interest received by Anita 2% more than the rate of interest received by Arun then find the interest rate received by Piku ?
A. 8%

Questions :
1. Find the ratio of the speed of Boats P and Q together in still water to the speed of Boats S and T together in still water.
A. 25 : 32
B. 27 : 19
C. 24 : 39
D. 65 : 48
E. None of these
Explanation :
Ratio = (24 + 24) : (25 + 40)
= 48 : 65
Hence, option E is correct.
Common Explanation:
Speed of Boat P in still water = a km/h
96 (a + 12) = 288 (a – 12)
96a + 1152 = 288a – 3456
3456 + 1152 = 288a – 96a
a = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat Q in still water = b km/h
120 (b + 8) = 240 (b – 8)
120b + 960 = 240b – 1920
1920 + 960 = 240b – 120b
b = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat R in still water = c km/h
100 (c + 15) = 220 (c – 15)
100c + 1500 = 220c – 3300
3300 + 1500 = 220c – 100c
c = 40 km/h
Speed of Boat S in still water = d km/h
150 (d + 10) = 350 (d – 10)
150d + 1500 = 350d – 3500
3500 + 1500 = 350d – 150d
d = 25 km/h
Speed of Boat T in still water = e km/h
180 (e + 20) = 540 (e – 20)
180e + 3600 = 540e – 10800

= 48 : 65
Hence, option E is correct.
Common Explanation:
Speed of Boat P in still water = a km/h
96 | = | 288 |
(a – 12) | (a + 12) |
96 (a + 12) = 288 (a – 12)
96a + 1152 = 288a – 3456
3456 + 1152 = 288a – 96a
a = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat Q in still water = b km/h
120 | = | 240 |
(b – 8) | (b + 8) |
120 (b + 8) = 240 (b – 8)
120b + 960 = 240b – 1920
1920 + 960 = 240b – 120b
b = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat R in still water = c km/h
100 | = | 220 |
(c – 15) | (c + 15) |
100 (c + 15) = 220 (c – 15)
100c + 1500 = 220c – 3300
3300 + 1500 = 220c – 100c
c = 40 km/h
Speed of Boat S in still water = d km/h
150 | = | 350 |
(d – 10) | (d + 10) |
150 (d + 10) = 350 (d – 10)

3500 + 1500 = 350d – 150d
d = 25 km/h
Speed of Boat T in still water = e km/h
180 | = | 540 |
(e – 20) | (e + 20) |
180 (e + 20) = 540 (e – 20)
180e + 3600 = 540e – 10800
10800 + 3600 = 540e – 180e
e = 40 km/h

3300 + 1500 = 220c – 100c
c = 40 km/h
Speed of Boat S in still water = d km/h
150 (d + 10) = 350 (d – 10)
150d + 1500 = 350d – 3500
3500 + 1500 = 350d – 150d
d = 25 km/h
Speed of Boat T in still water = e km/h
180 (e + 20) = 540 (e – 20)
180e + 3600 = 540e – 10800
10800 + 3600 = 540e – 180e
e = 40 km/h

b = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat R in still water = c km/h
100 (c + 15) = 220 (c – 15)
100c + 1500 = 220c – 3300
3300 + 1500 = 220c – 100c
c = 40 km/h
Speed of Boat S in still water = d km/h
150 (d + 10) = 350 (d – 10)
150d + 1500 = 350d – 3500
3500 + 1500 = 350d – 150d
d = 25 km/h
Speed of Boat T in still water = e km/h
180 (e + 20) = 540 (e – 20)
180e + 3600 = 540e – 10800
10800 + 3600 = 540e – 180e
e = 40 km/h

D. 12 km/h
E. None of these
Explanation :
Speed of the Boat Q in still water = 24 km/h
Speed of the Boat U in still water
Let the speed of stream = x km/h
According to the question,
2 (3780 – 126x + 2430 + 81x) = 15 (900 – x^{2})
2 (6210 – 45x) = 13500 – 15x^{2}
12420 – 90x = 13500 – 15x^{2}
15x^{2} – 90x – 1080 = 0
x^{2} – 6x – 72 = 0
x^{2} – 12x + 6x – 72 = 0
x (x – 12) + 6 (x – 12) = 0
(x + 6) (x – 12) = 0
x = –6, 12
Speed of stream = 12 km/h

b = 24 km/h
Speed of Boat R in still water = c km/h
100 (c + 15) = 220 (c – 15)
100c + 1500 = 220c – 3300
3300 + 1500 = 220c – 100c
c = 40 km/h
Speed of Boat S in still water = d km/h
150 (d + 10) = 350 (d – 10)
150d + 1500 = 350d – 3500
3500 + 1500 = 350d – 150d
d = 25 km/h
Speed of Boat T in still water = e km/h
180 (e + 20) = 540 (e – 20)
180e + 3600 = 540e – 10800
10800 + 3600 = 540e – 180e

Explanation :
Question bank of English contains (5 + 25 + 10) 40 questions
Question bank of Maths contains (7 + 15 + 8) 30 questions
Question bank of GA contains (5 + 6 + 14) 25 questions
Question bank of Computer contains (7 + 6 + 12) 25 questions
Question bank of Reasoning contains (9 + 12 + 9) 30 questions
A paper of 60 questions are to be made that it has 5% questions from GA, 45% of questions from Maths and at least 28 questions from reasoning.
∴ Questions of GA in the paper = 5% of 60 = 3 and Questions of Maths in the paper = 45% of 60 = 27
The different ways that we can choose questions to form such paper are:
i. 3GA × 27Maths × 28reasoning × 2(Computer +English) = ^{25}C_{3} × ^{30}C_{27 }× ^{30}C_{28} × ^{65}C_{2}
⇒ 3GA × 27Maths × 28reasoning × 2(Computer +English) = 2300 × 4060 × 435 × 2080
ii. 3GA × 27Maths × 29reasoning × 1(Computer +English) = ^{25}C_{3} × ^{30}C_{27 }× ^{30}C_{29} × ^{65}C_{1 }
⇒ 3GA × 27Maths × 28reasoning × 1(Computer +English) = 2300 × 4060 × 30 × 65
iii. 3GA × 27Maths × 30reasoning = ^{25}C_{3} × ^{30}C_{27 }× ^{30}C_{30 }
⇒ 3GA × 27Maths × 30reasoning = 2300 × 4060 × 1
∴ Total number of ways in which a paper of 60 questions can be made so that it has 3 GA questions, 27 Maths questions and at least 28 reasoning questions = (2300 × 4060 × 435 × 2080) + (2300 × 4060 × 30 × 65) + (2300 × 4060 × 1)
⇒ Required ways = 2300 × 4060 (435 × 2080 + 30 × 65 + 1)
⇒ Required ways = 2300 × 4060 (904800 + 1950 + 1)
⇒ Required ways = 2300 × 4060 × 906751
Hence, the total number of ways in which a paper of 60 questions can be made so that it has 3 GA questions, 27 Maths questions and at least 28 reasoning questions is 2300 × 4060 × 906751
Hence, option C is correct.
2. A Maths test is to be made using all of the easy and hard level questions only from its question bank. In how many ways the test can be made if no two easy questions are set next to each other?
A. 15120 × 8!
B. 20160 × 9!
C. 2520 × 8!
D. 6720 × 9!
E. 2520 × 7!
Explanation :
∴ Number of ways in which the test can be made if no two easy questions are set next to each other = 8! × 9!/2! = 20160 × 9!
B. 20160 × 9!
C. 2520 × 8!
D. 6720 × 9!
E. 2520 × 7!
Explanation :
Question bank of Maths contains 30 questions.
Out of 30 questions, 7 are easy, 15 are moderate and 8 are hard.
8 hard level questions can be set in 8! Ways
In 8 places of hard questions, there are 9 places in which 7 easy questions are to be set, so that no two easy questions are set to each other
_H1_H2_H3_H4_H5_H6_H7_H8_
⇒ Easy questions can be set in 9P7 ways
⇒ Easy questions can be set in | 9! | ways |
(9 – 7)! |
∴ Number of ways in which the test can be made if no two easy questions are set next to each other = 8! × 9!/2! = 20160 × 9!
Hence, 20160 × 9! Ways in which the test can be made if no two easy questions are set next to each other
Hence, option B is correct.
Hence, option B is correct.
3. A student has to answer 18 questions of reasoning from its question bank, choosing at least 10 from moderate level questions, at least 5 from hard level questions and 1 from easy level, in how many ways can the student answer 18 questions.
A. 31590
B. 30456
C. 27724
D. 32724
E. 28832
B. 30456
C. 27724
D. 32724
E. 28832
Explanation :
Question bank of reasoning contains 30 questions.
Out of 30 questions, 9 are of easy level, 12 are of moderate level and 9 are of hard level questions.
The student has to answer 18 questions.
According to the given information:
Numbers of possibilities are:
i. 12 from moderate level, 5 from hard level and 1 from easy level = ^{12}C_{12} × ^{9}C_{5} × ^{9}C_{1}
ii. 10 from moderate level, 7 from hard level and 1 from easy level = ^{12}C_{10} × ^{9}C_{7} × ^{9}C_{1 }
iii. 11 from moderate level, 6 from hard level and 1 from easy level = ^{12}C_{11} × ^{9}C_{6} × ^{9}C_{1}
∴ Required number of ways = (^{12}C_{12} × ^{9}C_{5} × ^{9}C_{1}) + (^{12}C_{10} × ^{9}C_{7} × ^{9}C_{1}) + (^{12}C_{11} × ^{9}C_{6} × ^{9}C_{1})
⇒ Required number of ways = (1 × 126 × 9) + (66 × 36 × 9) + (12 × 84 × 9)
⇒ Required number of ways = (1134) + (21384) + (9072)
⇒ Required number of ways = 31590
Hence, in 31590 ways a student can answer 18 questions of reasoning from its question bank, choosing at least 10 from moderate level questions, at least 5 from hard level questions and 1 from easy level.
Hence, option A is correct.
4. Find the number of ways in which the tutor can choose questions for an English test of 28 questions which contain 3 easy questions, 23 moderate questions and at most 4 hard questions from its question bank?
A. 30000
B. 69000
C. 75000
D. 135000
E. 360000
B. 69000
C. 75000
D. 135000
E. 360000
Explanation :
Question bank of English contains 40 questions.
Out of 40 questions, 5 are of the easy level, 25 are of moderate level and 10 are of hard level questions.
The tutor has to choose questions for an English test of 28 questions which contain 3 easy questions, 23 moderate questions and at most 4 hard questions
The test can be prepared in following way:
3 easy question, 23 moderate questions, 2 hard question = ^{5}C_{3} × ^{25}C_{23} × ^{10}C_{2}
⇒ Number of ways in which the test can be prepared = 10 × 300 × 45
⇒ Number of ways in which the test can be prepared = 135000
Hence, in 135000 ways a tutor can choose questions for an English test of 28 questions which contain 3 easy questions, 23
moderate questions and at most 4 hard questions.
moderate questions and at most 4 hard questions.
Hence, option D is correct.
5. If an entire test paper is created from only easy level questions of the question bank then in how many different ways can the questions be arranged such that all the questions from Maths and reasoning are set together?
A. 30! 17!
B. 17! 16!
C. 18! 17!
D. 33! 16!
E. 18! 16!
B. 17! 16!
C. 18! 17!
D. 33! 16!
E. 18! 16!
Question bank contains 5 easy level English questions, 7 easy level Maths questions, 9 easy level Reasoning questions, 5 easy level G.A questions and 7 easy level computer questions
⇒ There are a total of 33 easy level questions.
But all Maths and Reasoning questions are set next to each other
⇒ 16 questions are grouped and can be considered as 1 question
∴ We can assume a total of (33 – 16 + 1) 18 questions which need to be arranged.
⇒ 18 questions can be arranged in 18! Ways
Now, the number of ways in which Maths and reasoning question can be arranged = 16!
∴ Required number of ways = 18! 16!
Hence, in 18! 16! Ways questions can be arranged if Maths and reasoning questions are always set next to each other.
Hence, option E is correct.
