  1. A basket contains 3 blue, 5 black and 3 red balls. If 3 balls are drawn at random what is the probability that all are black?
    1. 2/11
    2. 1/11
    3. 3/11
    4. 8/33
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option A.
    Ways of selecting 3 black balls out of 5 - 5C3
    Total ways of selecting 3 balls - 11C3The required probability =
    5C3 / 11C3 = 10/165 = 2/33

DIRECTIONS for questions 2-3: What should come in place of question mark (?) in the following number/alphabetic series?
  1. 17 9 10 ? 35 90
    1. 21
    2. 27.5
    3. 19
    4. 16.5
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option D.
    17×0.5+0.5=9
    9×1+1=10
    10×1.5+1.5=16.5
    16.5×2+2=35
    35×2.5+2.5=90
    Hence, the question mark(?) should be replaced by 16.5
  2. 3 20 78 334 1696 ?
    1. 8410
    2. 9836
    3. 10206
    4. 1150
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option C.
    3×2+14=20
    20×3+18=78
    78×4+22=334
    334×5+26=1696
    1696×6+30=10206
    Hence, the question mark should be replaced by 10206
  1. The magnitude of the area of a circle is seven times that of its circumference. What is the circumference (in units) of the circle?
    1. 616
    2. 132
    3. 88
    4. Can't be determined
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option C.
    We have πr2 = 7 x 2πr
    ∴ r = 14
    ∴ circumference = 2πr = 2 x (22/7) * 14 = 88
  2. 15.002 × ? × 25.0210 = 7113.018
    1. 19
    2. 26
    3. 11
    4. 31
    5. 35
    Answer: Option A.
    15.002 × ? × 25.0210 = 7113.018
  3. A mixture of 45 liters of spirit and water contains 20% of water in it. How much water must be added to make the water 25% in the new mixture?
    1. 5 liters
    2. 3 liters
    3. 4 liters
    4. 6 liters
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option B.
    Quantity of water in the mixture = (20/100) x 45 = 9 L
    Let x litres of water must be added to make the water 25 % in the solution
    Therefore, [(9+x)/(45+x)] x 100 = 25
    ⇒ 36 + 4x = 45 + x
    ⇒ 3x = 9
    ⇒ x = 3 litres
  4. The sum of four consecutive integers is 102. Find the product of the extremes:
    1. 548
    2. 684
    3. 648
    4. 578
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option C.
    a,a+1,a+2,a+3 , let these be the numbers.
    Sum=102⇒4a+6=102⇒4a=96⇒a=24
    Hence extremes=24 , 27
    24X27=648
  5. A bottle contains 3/4 of milk and the rest water. How much of the mixture must be taken away and replaced by equal quantity of water so that the mixture has half milk and half water?
    1. 25%
    2. 3312%
    3. 45%
    4. 50%
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option B
    Let the total quantity of mixture = 1 liter.
    Now supposing x liters of mixture is withdrawn which contains 3/4x milk and rest water.
    So, according to the question 3/4 -3/4x =1/2.
    Solving x = 1/3 which means 1/3 of mixture is to be withdrawn to serve the purpose.
    So, answer is 33.33%.
  6. Krishan has some hens and some cows. If the total number of animal heads are 59 and the total number of feet are 190, how many cows does Krishan have?
    1. 36
    2. 32
    3. 23
    4. 20
    5. Can't be determined
    Answer: Option A.
    Suppose he has x cows and y hens.
    So x + y = 59 and 4x + 2y = 190.
    Solving these two equations, we get x = 36.
    So option A is the answer
  7. The height of a room is 5 metres and its length is twice its breadth. If 240 metres of paper of breadth 50 cm are required for papering its walls, find the area of the floor.
    1. 128 m2
    2. 64 m2
    3. 320 m2
    4. 32 m2
    5. None of these
    Answer: Option D.
    H = 5, L = 2B, Area of 4 = Area of wall paper
    2(LH) + 2(BH) = 240 × 50/100
    10L + 10 B = 24 × 5, 10L + 5L= 24 × 5
    15 L = 24 × 5, L =24×5/15 = 8
    L= 8, B = 4,
    ∴area of floor = L × B
    = 8 × 4 = 32
