QA
Question:

Area enclosed between 4 circles of radius 73. Is

 

Solution:

r = 73 (of all circles)

the two shaded areas are equal, Therefore find the area of one  & double it.

Triangle ABC is equilateral with sides = 143

Therefore area of shaded portion = 2 (area of Triangle – areas of the three sectors)

= 2(3/2 (143)2 – 3 x 60 / 360 Pie (7 3)2)

= 2 (3/4 588 – 1/2 pie 147)

= (3 /2 (147 x 4) – 147 pie)

= 147 (23 – pie).


Question:

A smallest 3 digit positive integer when divided by 6 gives remainder as 4. What is the number?

Solution:

6x + 4 = N

at x = 16

we get N = 100

smallest positive.


Question:

A clock shows 8 : 24 p.m. the angle between the hands are.

Solution:

At 8’0 clock the dist. b/w min & hour hand will be 240°. After travelling 24 mins by hour Speed the distance covered be x°.

(11/2)° pc – min = x° / 24

132 = x°.

Req. degrees = 240 – 132 = 108°.


Question:

If x + y + z = pie then cot x/2 + cot y/2 + cot z/2 = ?

Solution:

Let  x = pie / 3 ; y = pie / 3 ; z = pie / 3 then

Cot pie/6 + Cot pie / 6 + Cot pie / 6 = 3 + 3 + 3 = 33.


Question:

How many numbers are divisible by 7 between 100 and 1000?

Solution:

1 – 100

100/7 = 13 nos.

1 – 1000

1000/7 = 142

142 – 13 = 129 nos.


Question:

Given two coordinates A and B such that A (5, 2) B(–15,7) which of the following points will draw a right angle on AB?

Solution:

Slope of A & B is y2 – y1 / x2 – x1 = 7-2 / -15-5 = 5/-20 = -1/4

Among the following pts. The line drawn from (6, 6) is perpendicular to AB.

as 6-2/6-5 = 4/1 = 4

[Since m1 m2 = -1 => 4 x -1/4 = - 1]


Question:

Two people A & B are running towards each other with speed 4 : 5 and have a distance of 900 m between them. At what point will they meet?

  1. 400 m from A
  2. 400 m from B
  3. 100 m from A
  4. 500 m from A

 

Solution:

As the speed of A & B is in the ratio 4 : 5. The total dist. Is 900 m.
When they meet then A covers 400 m, is the same time B covers 500 m.
Therefore option (a) is correct.


Question:

 

Viewership of Television Channel (in degrees)

  1. If Channel F has viewership 700,000, then what was the viewership of Channel D?
  2. If channel A has viewership 55000 then what is the difference in viewership of B & E.

 

Solution:

Sol 1: viewership of channel F = 50° = 70000

1° = 70000 / 50

Then viewership of channel D = 70000 x 25 / 50 = 35000.

Sol  2: viewership of channel A = 55° = 55000

1° = 1000

Difference in viewership of channel B and E = 115° – 80° = 35° = 35 x 1000 = 35000.


Question:

A train after travelling certain distance meets an accident and then proceeds at half of the former speed and arrived at Its destination 45 mins late. Had the accident happened 30 km further on, it would have reached the destination only 15 minutes late. Find the speed of the train.

Solution:

30 km distance travelled with original speed saved 30 mins. So the original speed is 60 km per hour.


Question:

If 60% of x – y = 40% of x + y then what percentage of y is x?

Solution:

3/5 (x – y) = 2/5 (x + y)
x = 5y
Hence x is 500% of y.


Question:

Sum of the ages of daughter and mother is 42 years. If after three years mother is 42 years. If after 3 years mother age will become thrice of daughter’s age, then what is the present age of mother?

Solution:

Let the ages of daughter & mother be D & M
Then D + M = 42
M + 3 = 3 (D + 3)


Question:

There are some number cards with numbers printed from 1 to 11 on each card. If five cards are chosen sand only then what is the probability that their median will be 3?

Solution:

Question:

A cylinder is filled by a liquid till half the height. A sphere is immersed into the cylinder. By what length the height of the liquid rises? (radius of the cylinder & sphere is 8 cm & 4 cm respectively. Height of the cylinder is ‘h’ cm).

Solution:

Volume of spheres = volume of liquid increased

4/3 pie r3 = pie r2 x h

4/3 pie 43 = pie 82 x h

Hence height increased = 4/3 cm.


Question:

A cylinder has a height 12 cm and radius 5 cm. how many spheres of radius 1mm can be formed by melting the given spheres?

Solution:

Vol. of cylinder = pie r2h = pie x (5)2 x 12 = 300 pie.

Vol. of a sphere = 4/3 pie r3 = 4/3 pie (1/10)3

= (4/3) (pie / 1000).

No. of spheres = vol. of cylinder / vol. of sphere = 300 pie / (4/3) (pie /1000) = 225000.


Question:
