Q:

n is a whole number which when divided by 4 gives 3 as remainder. What will be the remainder when 2*n is divided by 4 ?

A) 3 B) 2
C) 1 D) 0
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2

Explanation:

Let n=4*q + 3. Then, 2*n = 8*q + 6 = 4(2*q + 1) + 2.
Thus when 2*n is divided by 4, the reminder is 2.

Q:

Courier charges for packages to a certain destination are 65 cents for the first 250 grams and 10 cents for each additional 100 grams or part thereof. What could be the weight in grams of a package for which the charge is $1.55 ?

A) 1155 B) 1145
C) 1040 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1145

Explanation:

The weight will be 250g plus (1.55 - 0.65)/0.10 units of 100g

250 + 900 = 1150

This is the maximum weight that can be sent at that price. But, weights exceeding

250 + 800 will also get charged this amount (that is what the ‘part thereof’ implies).

Hence a package weighing 1145 will be charged $1145

Q:

x = y - (50/y), where x and y are both > 0 

If the value of y is doubled in the equation above, the value of x will

A) decrease B) stay the same
C) increase four fold D) increase to more than double
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) increase to more than double

Explanation:

The best approach is to pick a number that satisfies the rules that x and y are greater than 0. So for example you could choose 25 for y.

The value of x before doubling is then 25 - 50/25 = 23

The value after doubling y will be 50 - 50/50 = 49, which is more than double.
