Q:

Find the sum to 200 terms of the series 2 + 5 + 7 + 6 + 12 + 7 + ....

 A) 30,400 B) 30,200 C) 34,600 D) 38,400

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 30,400

Explanation:

we can treat every two consecutive terms as one.
So, we will have a total of 100 terms of the nature:
(2 + 5) + (7 + 6) + (12 + 7).... => 7, 13, 19,....

We know the sum of n terms  $\frac{n\left(n+1\right)}{2}$

Now, a= 7, d=6 and n=100
Hence the sum of the given series is
S= 100/2 x[2 x 7 + 99 x 6]
=> 50[608]
=> 30,400.

Q:

What should be the maximum value of B in the following equation?
8A9 – 6B2 + 4C6 = 723

 A) 4 B) 1 C) 5 D) 7

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 7

Explanation:

1 1
8 A 9
+ 4 C 6
-  6 B 2
7 2 3
We may represent the given sum, as shown below:

1 + A + C - B = 12
A + C - B = 11

Now,giving the maximum values to A and C, i.e.

A = 9 and C = 9, we get B = 7.

Q:

Two bus tickets from city K to L and three tickets from city K to M cost Rs. 77,  but three tickets from city K to L and two tickets from city K to M cost Rs. 73. What are the fares for cities L and M from K ?

 A) Rs. 13 and Rs. 17 B) Rs. 17 and Rs. 19 C) Rs. 23 and Rs. 17 D) Rs. 13 and Rs. 19

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 13 and Rs. 17

Explanation:

If fares for cities L and M from K are x and y respectively, then

2x + 3y = 77 or 6x + 9y = 231...(1)
3x + 2y = 73 or 6x + 4y = 146...(2)

subtracting 2 from 1, we get

5y = 85

y = Rs. 17 => x = Rs. 13

Q:

How many numbers with distinct digits are possible product of whose digits is 18?

 A) 12 B) 8 C) 6 D) 4

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 8

Explanation:

Two digit numbers: The two digits can be 2 and 9: Two possibilities 29 and 92.

Three-digit numbers: The three digits can be 1, 2 and 9 => 3! Or 6 possibilities.

We cannot have three digits as (3, 3, 2) as the digits have to be distinct.

We cannot have numbers with 4 digits or more without repeating the digits.

So, there are totally 8 numbers.
