A vessel contains milk and water in the ratio of 4:3. If 14 litres of the mixture is drawn and filled with water, the ratio changes to 3:4. How much milk was there in the vessel initially? a) 24 b) 32 c) 40 d) 48 e) None of these
A vessel contains milk and water in the ratio of 4:3. If 14 litres of the mixture is drawn and filled with water, the ratio changes to 3:4. How much milk was there in the vessel initially? a) 24 b) 32 c) 40 d) 48 e) None of these
Last answer:
Answer: B milk = 4x and water = 3x milk = 4x – 14*4/7 and water = 3x – 14*3/7 + 14 4x – 8: 3x + 8 = 3:4 X = 8, so milk = 8*4 = 32 litres

There are three different categories of jobs A, B and C. The average salary of the students who got the job of A and B categories is Rs.32 lakh per annum. The average salary of the student who got the job of B and C category is 54 lakh per annum. And the average salary of those students who got the job of A and C is Rs.44 lakh per annum. The most appropriate (or closet) range of average salary of all the three categories (if it is known that each student gets only one category for jobs i.e, A, B and C): A) lies between 30 & 44 B) lies between 48 & 56 C) lies between 38 & 45 D) lies between 49 & 50

The average salary of the student who got the job of B and C category is 54 lakh per annum. And the average salary of those students who got the job of A and C is Rs.44 lakh per annum. ... one category for jobs i.e, A, B and C): A) lies between 30 & 44 B) lies between 48 & 56 C) lies between 38 & 45 D) lies between 49 & 50
Last answer:
Answer: C) Let the number of students who got the jobs of A, B and C categories is a, b and c respectively, ∴Total salary of Aand B = 32 (a +b) ∴Total salary of B and C = 54 (b+ ... the minimum salary must be Rs.38 lakh and the maximum salary cannot exceed 45, which is the highest of the three..

Last answer:
Answer: B Sol. Let the number of one-rupee coins, 50-paise coins and 25-paise coins be 2k, 3k and 5k, respectively. ∴ 2k × 1 + 3k × 0.50 + 5k × 0.25 = 114 ⇒ 2k + 1.50k + 1.25k = 114 ⇒ 4.75k = 114 ⇒ k = 24. 50 paise value = 1.5x = 1.5*24 = 36

Last answer:
Answer: C 8 times AA's share = 12 times BB's share = 6 times CC's share Note that this is not the same as the ratio of their wages being 8:12:68:12:6 In this case, find out the L.C.M of 8, 12 and 6 and divide ... 2x + 4x = 432 => 9x = 432 or x = 48. Hence, A who gets 3x will get 3 * 48 = Rs.144.

A) 2 hour B) 2.5 hour C) 4 hour D) 1.5 hour E) None of these
Last answer:
Answer: D Height of both candles are same i.e. h First one takes 3 hours to burn completely, so in one hour = h/3 Similarly second one will burn in one hour = h/2 Let after t time, ratio between their height is 2:1 so, ... given 2:1, h - t*(h/3) / h - t*(h/2) = 2/1 Solving we get t = 1.5

Last answer:
ANSWER:A Explanation: Speed of train = distance /time = 360/30 m/s = 12 m/s Speed of train 2 = distance /time = 360 /45 m/s = 8 m/s If 2 trains are moving in opposite ... +360 = 720 m Time = distance/speed = (720/20) = 36 Seconds Hence the required answer is 36 seconds

Last answer:
Answer: A If we add x grams of sand, the total amount would be 1,000 + x grams of mixture and we need 200 grams of iron to be 10% of that: 0.1(1,000 + x) = 200 --> x = 1,000.

Last answer:
Answer: D Platinum = 1/3 and 1/4 gold = 2/3 and 3/4 Alloy one and two are mixed in the ratio of 3:4, so ratio of platinum and gold in final ratio – 2:5 So gold % = (5/7)*100 71.3/7%

Last answer:
Answer: B 1) 20% profit at the price of 7 cents means that cost of the mixture should be 70/12 cents per ounce (7 = 120% and x = 100% => x = 7*100/120) 2) Let the amount of 5 cent rice will be x and the amount ... which as we know should equal to 70/12 3) (5x + 6y)/(x + y) = 70/12 => x/y = 1/5

Last answer:
ANSWER:C Explanation: Speed of the train = 90 km/hr Converting the speed into m/sec 90 km/hr = (90* 5/18)m/s = 25m/s length of the train = distance travelled we know distance = speed * ... Time = distance / speed = ( 1800/25) sec = 72 seconds Hence the required answer is 72 seconds

Last answer:
Answer : D Ratio of salary of X and Y is 5:8 Let the original salary of X and Y be Rs.5k and Rs.8k respectively. After increasing 60%, new salary of X = 160% of 5k = 160x5k/100 = 80k/ ... does not give the value of k; so that we cannot find X's exact salary. Hence the answer is data inadequate.

Last answer:
Answer: C X=total profit 25/100*[x-7500] = 7500 x-7500 = 7500*100/25 =30,000 x = 37,500

Last answer:
D Let capacity of A be x litres Then capacity of B = x/2 litres Capacity of the dumper = 120x litres Required number of turns = 120x/ x =x/2 = 2 (120x)/3x =2430x/3x =80.

Last answer:
Answer: A a^2 + b^2 + c^2 = 5000 a:b:c = 3:4:5 50x^2 = 5000. X = 10. 5x – 3x = 2*10 = 20

Last answer:
Answer: B When the shares reduce, the total amount will also reduce which is to be divided among them. So after reducing shares by Rs 10, Rs 15 and Rs 25 respectively, total amount is 5750 - (10+15+25) = ... share shall be [9/(4+6+9)] * 5700 = 2700 Actually C would have received = 2700 + 25=2725
