(60)x  (50)x = 20
10x = 20
∴ x = 2 hrs
Question 2 
In a college, there are three student clubs. Sixty students are only in the Drama club, 80 students are only in the Dance club, 30 students are only in the Maths club, 40 students are in both Drama and Dance clubs, 12 students are in both Dance and Maths clubs, 7 students are in both Drama and Maths club, and 2 students are in all the clubs. If 75% of the students in the college are not in any of these clubs, then the total number of students in the college is _____.
900  
975  
225  
1000 
No. of students present in three student clubs
= 60 + 80 + 30 + 38 + 2 + 10 + 5
= 225 [i.e., 25% of the students in the college]
Total no. of students in the college = 225 × 4 = 900
Question 3 
Three of the five students allocated to a hostel put in special requests to the warden. Given the floor plan of the vacant rooms, select the allocation plan that will accommodate all their requests.
Request by X: Due to pollen allergy, I want to avoid a wing next to the garden. Request by Y: I want to live as far from the washrooms as possible, since I am very sensitive to smell.

Question 10 
∠BCD  ∠BAD  
∠BAD + ∠BCF
 
∠BAD + ∠BCD  
∠CBA + ADC 
→ ∠1 = ∠5 + ∠4 ………(i)
According to triangular property:
Angle of exterior = sum of interior angles
→ ∠4 = ∠3 + ∠2 ……….(ii)
By substituting (ii) in (i)
→ ∠1 = ∠5 + ∠3 + ∠2
→ ∠1 = ∠BCD
∠2 = ∠BAD
→ ∠BCD  ∠BAD = ∠1  ∠2
= ∠5 + ∠3 + ∠2  ∠2
= ∠ 5 + ∠3
= ∠DEC + ∠BFC
Question 11 
In a party, 60% of the invited guests are male and 40% are female. If 80% of the invited guests attended the party and if all the invited female guests attended, what would be the ratio of males to females among the attendees in the party?
2:3
 
1:1
 
3:2
 
2:1

→ 60% invited guests are males i.e., 60 males
→ 40% invited guests are females i.e., 40 females
→ 80% invited guests are attended i.e., total guests attended to a party = 80
→ All the invited females are attended then remaining people are males = 80 – 40 = 40 males
⇒ 40 males : 40 females
⇒ 1 : 1
Question 12 
In appreciation of the social improvements completed in a town, a wealthy philanthropist decided to gift Rs 750 to each male senior citizen in the town and Rs 1000 to each female senior citizen. Altogether, there were 300 senior citizens eligible for this gift. However, only 8/9th of the eligible men and 2/3rd of the eligible women claimed the gift. How much money (in Rupees) did the philanthropist give away in total?
1,50,000
 
2,00,000  
1,75,000  
1,51,000 
Female senior citizen’s gift = Rs. 1000
No. of males = a say
No. of females = b say
Altogether no. of persons eligible for gift = 300
i.e., a+b = 300
Total amount be given = (8x/9 × 750) + (2y/3 × 1000)
= (2000x/3) + (2000y/3)
= 2000/3 (x+y)
= 2000/3 (300)
= 2,00,000

1/pqr  
1  
pqr 
→ p^{x} = 1/q ⟹ 1/p^{x} = 1/q
⟹ q = p^{x}
⟹ log q = log p^{x}
⟹ x log p = log q
⟹ x = log q/ log p
→ q^{y} = 1/r ⟹ 1/q^{y} = 1/r
⟹ q^{y} = r
⟹ y log q = log r
⟹ y = log r/ log q
→ r^{z} = 1/p ⟹ 1/r^{z} = 1/p
⟹ p = r^{z}
⟹ log r^{z} = log p
⟹ z log r = log p
⟹ z = log p/ log r
XYZ = log q/ log p * log r/ log q * log p/ log r =1

56  
64  
72  
96 
⇒ Side of cube = 4
Surface area of cube = 6s^{2} = 6 × 4^{2} = 96
Each corner block is associated with three faces of cube.
When they are removed, three new faces are exposed. Thus there appears no net change in the exposed surface area.
Hence, Surface area = 96
Question 33 
A shaving set company sells 4 different types of razors, Elegance, Smooth, Soft and Executive. Elegance sells at Rs. 48, Smooth at Rs. 63, Soft at Rs. 78 and Executive at Rs. 173 per piece. The table below shows the numbers of each razor sold in each quarter of a year.
Which product contributes the greatest fraction to the revenue of the company in that year?
Elegance  
Executive  
Smooth  
Soft 
Revenue from Smooth = (20009 + 19392 + 22429 + 18229) × 63 = Rs. 5043717
Revenue from Soft = (17602 + 18445 + 19544 + 16595) × 78 = Rs.5630508
Revenue from Executive = (9999 + 8942 + 10234 + 10109) × 173 = Rs. 6796132
Clearly, Executive contributes the greatest fraction to the revenue of the company as the revenue from it is the highest.
Question 34 
In a process, the number of cycles to failure decreases exponentially with an increase in load. At a load of 80 units, it takes 100 cycles for failure. When the load is halved, it takes 10000 cycles for failure. The load for which the failure will happen in 5000 cycles is ________.
40.00  
46.02  
60.01  
92.02 
General exponential function = a⋅e^{bx}
i.e., No. of cycles to failure = a⋅e^{bx}
load = x
At a load of 80 units, it takes 100 cycles to failure.
So, no. of cycles to failure = 100
load = 80
i.e., 100 = a⋅e^{  b(80)} (1)
When the load is halved, it takes 10000 cycles to failure.
No. of cycles to failure = 10,000
load = 40
i.e., 10,000 = a⋅e^{  b(40)} (2)
No. of cycles to failure = 5,000
load = x?
i.e., 5000 = a⋅e^{  bx}
Multiply with 2 on both sides,
10,000 = 2⋅a⋅e^{  bx}  (4)
Question 35 
Consider the following statements relating to the level of poker play of four players P, Q, R and S.

I. P always beats Q
II. R always beats S
III. S loses to P only sometimes
IV. R always loses to Q
Which of the following can be logically inferred from the above statements?

(i) P is likely to beat all the three other players
(ii) S is the absolute worst player in the set
(i) only  
(ii) only  
(i) and (ii)  
neither (i) nor (ii) 
All three can beat S.
But from statement III,
S loses to P only sometimes.
(ii) Cannot be inferred.
And in poker, the transitive law does not apply. This can be seen from statement III.
As S loses to P only sometimes which states that wins against P most of the time.
So, (i) cannot be logically inferred.

The pie chart below has the breakup of the number of students from different departments in an engineering college for the year 2012. The proportion of male to female students in each department is 5:4. There are 40 males in Electrical Engineering. What is the difference between numbers of female students in the Civil department and the female students in the Mechanical department?
32  
33  
34  
35 
There are 40 males in Electrical Engineering.
⇒ Number of females in Electrical Engineering = 4/5 × 40 = 32
Total number of students in Electrical Engineering = 40+32 = 72
This constitutes 20% of the strength of college.
Number of students in Civil department = 30/100 × 72 = 108
Number of female students in Civil department = 4/(4+5) × 108 = 48
Number of students in Mechanical department = 10/20 × 72 = 36
Number of female students in Mechanical department = 4/(4+5) × 36 = 16
Required Difference = 48  16 = 32
Question 45 
The probabilities that a student passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are m, p and c respectively. Of these subjects, the student has 75% chance of passing in at least one, a 50% chance of passing in at least two and a 40% chance of passing in exactly two. Following relations are drawn in m, p, c:

(I) p + m + c = 27/20
(II) p + m + c = 13/20
(III) (p) × (m) × (c) = 1/10
Only relation I is true  
Only relation II is true  
Relations II and III are true.  
Relations I and III are true. 
= 1  (1  m) (1  p) (1  c) = 0.75 (i)
50% of students have a chance pass in atleast two
(1  m)pc + (1  p)mc + (1  c) mp + mpc = 0.5 (ii)
40% of students have a chance of passing exactly two
(1  m)pc + (1  p)mc + (1  c)mp = 0.4 (iii)
From equation (ii) and (iii) we can get
mpc = 0.1
⇒ m*p*c = 1/10
Statement (III) is correct.
→ Simplify eq (i), we get
⇒ p+c+m  (mp+mc+pc) + mpc = 0.75
⇒ p+c+m  (mp+mc+pc) = 0.65 (iv) → Simplify equation (iii), we get
⇒ pc + mc + mp  3mpc = 0.4
From (iv) and (v)
p + c + m  0.7 = 0.65
⇒ p + c + m = 1.35 = 27/20
Statement (I) is correct.

Statement II alone is not sufficient  
Either I or II alone is sufficient  
Both statements I and II together are not sufficient. 
One fourth of the weight of a pole is 5Kg. ⇒ Weight of pole is 4×5=20Kg
Weight of 10 poles each of same weight = 10×20 = 200 Kg
∴Statement I alone is sufficient.
StatementII:
Let, Weight of each pole = W Kg
Given,
10W = 2W + 160
⇒ 8W = 160
W = 20Kg
∴ Weight of each pole = 20 Kg
∴ Weight of 10 poles = 10×20 Kg = 200 Kg
∴ Statement II alone is sufficient.
Option (C) is the answer.
