Questions

1.   100 + 50 * 2 = ?

  • 75
  • 150
  • 200
  • 300
4
The Correct answer is :200

Given expression = (100+100) = 200

2.   The number of girls in a class are 7 times the number of boys, which value can never be the of total students

  • 40
  • 48
  • 24
  • 30
4
The Correct answer is :30

Let the boys be X, then girls then girls will be 7X, total = X+7X = 8X
So it should be multiple of 8, 30 is not a multiple of 8.

3.   The value of 1001 / 11 of 13 is :

  • 7
  • 91
  • 143
  • 169
4
The Correct answer is :7

Given expression =(1001/11*13) = (1001/143) = 7

4.   52.416 / 18.72 + 6.28 = ?

  • 2.09664
  • 8.36
  • 9.08
  • 9.8
4
The Correct answer is :9.08

Given expression = ${\frac{52.416}{18.72}+6.28}$ =>2.8+6.28 = 9.08

5.   0.2 + 0.2 - 0.2 / 0.2 * (0.2 * 0.2), on simplification, gives :

  • 0.04
  • 0.2
  • 0.36
  • 1
4
The Correct answer is :0.36

Given expression => ${(0.2+0.2-1\times0.04)}$ => 0.4 - 0.04 = 0.36

6.   On Children's Day sweets were to be equally distributed among 175 children in a school. Actually on the Children's Day, 35 children were absent and therefore each child got 4 sweets extra. Total how many sweets were available for distribution?

  • 2400
  • 2480
  • 2680
  • 2800
4
The Correct answer is :2800

Let total no. of sweets be 'x'
Then, ${\frac{x}{140} - \frac{x}{175}}$ = 4
=> 5x - 4x = 4 * 700
=> x = 2800

7.   From a group of boys and girls, 15 girls leave. There are then left 2 boys for each girl. After this, 45 boys leave. There are then 5 girls for each boy. Find the number of girls in the beginning

  • 60
  • 80
  • None of these
  • 40
4
The Correct answer is :40

Assume that initial number of boys = b
initial number of girls = g

15 girls leave and they are then left 2 boys for each girl
=> 2(g - 15) = b
=> 2g - b = 30 ---(Equation 1)

After this, 45 boys leave. There are then 5 girls for each boy
5(b - 45) = (g - 15)
5b - g = 210---(Equation 2)

(Equation 2) x 2
=> 10b - 2g = 420---(Equation 3)

(Equation 1) + (Equation 3)
=> 9b = 450
=> b = 450/9 = 50

Substituting this value of b in Equation 1, we get
2g - 50 = 30
=> 2g = 80
=> g = 40

i.e., number of girls in the beginning = 40

8.   A Worker may claim Rs. 1.50 for each km which he travels by taxi and 50 p for each km he drives his own car. If in one week he claimed Rs. 50 for travelling 80 km, how many kms did he travel by taxi?

  • 10
  • 20
  • 30
  • 40
4
The Correct answer is :10

Let the distance covered by taxi be x km.
Then, distance covered by car = (80 - x) km.
Therefore, 1.5x + 0.5(80-x) = 50 => x= 50-40 =10

9.   In a group of buffaloes and ducks, the number of legs are 24 more than twice the number of heads. What is the number of buffaloes in the group?

  • 6
  • 8
  • 10
  • 12
4
The Correct answer is :12

Let the number of buffaloes be x and the number of ducks be y
=> 4x+2y = 2(x+y)+24
=> 2x = 24
=> x = 12

10.   On her birthday Priyanka equally distributed chocolates among her 120 classmates. But on that day 15 of her classmates were absent. Thus each friend got 4 extra chocolates. How many chocolates did each friend get?

  • 26
  • 28
  • 30
  • 32
4
The Correct answer is :32

Let the number of chocolates each child got is x => ${ \frac{120x}{105}-x = 4}$
=> ${\frac{(120x-105x)}{105}=4}$
=> 15x = 420 => x = 28
Thus each classmate got (28 + 4) = 32 chocolates.

11.   2660 of 1/7 of 1/2 of 1/9.5 of 1/2 = ?

  • 1
  • 10
  • 0.1
  • 100
4
The Correct answer is :10

= 2660 $\times\frac{1}{7}\times\frac{1}{2}\times\frac{1}{9.5}\times{1}{2}$
= $\frac{2660}{(7\times 2\times 9.5\times 2)}$
= $\frac{2660}{266}$
= 10

12.   18800/ 470/ 20 = ?

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
4
The Correct answer is :2

(18800/ 470) / 20 = 40/ 20 = 2

13.   25.25% of 512 = ?

  • 130.8
  • 140.8
  • 134.4
  • None of Above
