Q 1 - Sameer is much young as Anil as he is older to Puskar. If sum of ages of Anil and Puskar is 50 years. What is age of Sameer?

Options :

Let age of Anil and Puskar is x & 50-x

Age of Sameer = y

x-y = y-(50-x)y = 25

Q 2 - A has $3 more than B, but then B wins on the horses and trebles his money, so that he now has $2 more than the original amount of money that the two boys had between them. How much money did A and B have before B's win?

Options :

Let money with A = x. Then, money with B = x + $3. Now, 3x = (x + x + $3) + $2 x = $5.

Therefore total money with A and B = 2x + $3 = $13.

Q 3 - Anurag is three times as old as Baibhav. Cindy was twice-as old as Anurag four years ago. In four years' time, Anurag will be 31. What is the present age of Baibhav?

Options :

As from the question we have,

Anurag = 3Baibhav --- (i)

Cindy - 4 = 2(Anurag+4) ---(ii)

Also, Anurag + 4 = 31

or Anurag = 31-4 = 27

Putting Anurag = 27 in (i) we get

Baibhav = 9 years.

Q 4 - Sabita and Ranjita are working for an MNC at the Petronas towers and to reach different floors of the same office, they use the elevators. Sabita gets on the lift at the 11^{th} floor of a building and rides up at the rate of 57 floors per minute. At the same time, Ranjita gets on an elevator at the 51^{st} floor of the same building and rides down by 63 floors in every minute. The question is if these employees will continue to move at such rates, then at which floor will their paths cross

Options :

Let path crossed after x minutes

11x + 57x = 51-63x

x = 1/3

Floor covered by Sabita in 1/3 min = 1/3 × 57=19

So path crossed = 11 + 19 = 30

Q 5 - Mr Singh has a taxi and he drives this taxi across the city of Amritsar. He has a fixed charge for his customers, together with the charge of the distance covered. For a journey from Vijaya to Kundu which is of 16 km, the charges paid are Rs. 156 and for a journey from Gopalpur to Rishhavpur which is of 24 km, the charges paid are Rs. 204.

Q 6 - A canteen requires 17 dozen eggs per day. How many eggs will it require for 13 weeks?

Options :

Daily requirement = 17 × 12 (one dozen = 12 units)

Required in one week = 17 × 12 × 7

Required in 13 weeks = 17 × 12 × 7 × 13 = 18564

Q 7 - My uncle has a caravan in his village home which he runs with some keepers. There are some hens so that he can sell eggs and meat. There are goats from which he can sell milk and meat. In addition to 50 hens, there are 45 goats and 8 camels with some animal keepers. After counting if the total number of feet will be 224 more than the number of heads in the caravan, the number of keepers is

Options :

Let the number of keepers be x. Then, calculation for the total number of animalâ€™s feet = 2x + 312 which we got from 2 × 50 + 4 × 45 + 4 × 8 + 2x. Therefore (2x + 312) = (103 + x) + 224 or x = 15.

Q 8 - Maharathi bus runs from master canteen to Nandankanan daily.
