A - -36

B - -41

C - -46

D - 41

Answer : B

Explanation

Here a = 14, d = 9 - 14 = -5, n = 12 
Using formula Tn = a + (n - 1)d 
T12 = 14 + (12 - 1) x -5 
= -41 

Q 2 - What digit should be placed in of H in 78423928H9 so as make it divisible by 9?

A - 3

B - 4

So                        (7+8+4+2+3+9+2+8+2+9)/9 = (52+H)/9 
= Number divisible by 9  
So H should b replaced by 2  

Q 3 - The difference between local and the face value of 8 in the numeral is 568012?

A - 7008

B - 0

C - 7992

A - 13

B - 10

C - 12

D - 8

Explanation

 
 Let the third number be 100. 
 ∴First Number = 50 and Second Number = 46 
 Decrease = 50 - 46 = 4 
 ∴Required Percentage = (4/50)x100 = 8% 

Q 5 - How many multiples of 3 are available between 15 and 105 including both?

A - 30

B - 31

C - 32

D - 33

Answer : B

Explanation

 
 Here numbers are 15, 18, ..., 105 which is an A.P. 
 Here a = 15,  d = 3,    
 Using formula Tn = a + (n - 1)d    
 T11 = 15 + (n - 1) x 3 = 105 
 => 12 + 3n = 105 
 => n = 93 / 3 = 31 

Q 6 - if a, a-2 and 3a are in an A.P. what is a?

A - -3

B - -2

C - 2

D - 3

Answer : B

Explanation

 
 As a, a-2 and 3a are in an A.P. 
 ∴ (a-2) - a = 3a - (a-2) 
 => -2 = 2a - 2 
 => a = -2 

Q 7 - Sum of three numbers in G.P. is 28 and there product is 512. What are the numbers?

A - 2, 6, 18

B - 2, 8, 16

C - 4, 8 , 16

D - 6, 9 , 13

Answer : C

Explanation

   
 let the numbers are a/r, a, ar  
 Then a/r x a x ar = 512  
 => a3 = 83  
 gt; a = 8  
 Now a/r + a + ar = 28  
 => 8/r + 8 + 8r = 28  
 => 8/r + 8r = 20  
 => 2/r + 2r = 5  
 => 2r2 + -5r + 2 = 0  
 => 2r2 + -4r -r + 2 = 0  
 => 2r(r-2) - (r-2)=0  
 => (r-2)(2r-1) = 0  
 => r = 2 or r = 1/2  
 ∴ numbers are 4, 8, 16. 

Q 8 - One has to pay Rs 975 in yearly installments where each installment is less than earlier one by Rs 5. If first installment is of 100 in how many years, the entire amount will be paid?

A - 10

B - 12

C - 15

D - 25

Answer : C

Explanation

   
 Here a = 100, d = -5 , Sn = 975  
 Using formula Sn = (n/2)[2a + (n-1)d]  
 Sn = (n/2)[200 + (n-1)(-5)] = 975  
 => n(205 - 5n) = 1950  
 => 5n2 - 205n + 1950 = 0  
 => n2 - 41n + 390 = 0  
 => n2 - 26n - 15n + 390 = 0  
 => n(n-26) - 15(n-26)= 0  
 => (n-26)(n-15)  
 => n = 15 

Q 9 - What is the 18th term of A.P. 3, 5, 7, 9 ...?

A - 50

B - 52

C - 35

D - 37

Answer : D

Explanation

 
 Here a = 3, d = 5 - 3 = 2, n = 18 
 Using formula Tn = a + (n - 1)d 
 T18 = 3 + (18 - 1) x 2 
 = 37 

Q 10 - If 12 + 22 ... + 202 = 2870. What is 22 + 42 +... + 402?
