Q:

A, B, C, D and E play a game of cards. A says to B, "If you give me 3 cards, you will have as many as I have at this moment while if D takes 5 cards from you, he will have as many as E has." A and C together have twice as many cards as E has. B and D together also have the same number of cards as A and C taken together. If together they have 150 cards, how many cards has C got ? 

A) 28 B) 29
C) 31 D) 35

Answer:   A) 28



Explanation:

Clearly, we have :

A = B - 3 ...(i)

D + 5 = E ...(ii)

A+C = 2E ...(iii)

B + D = A+C = 2E ...(iv)

A+B + C + D + E=150 ...(v)

From (iii), (iv) and (v), we get: 5E = 150 or E = 30.

Putting E = 30 in (ii), we get: D = 25.

Putting E = 30 and D = 25 in (iv), we get: B = 35.

Putting B = 35 in (i), we get: A = 32.

Putting A = 32 and E = 30 in (iii), we get: C = 28.

Q:

The sum of three consecutive multiples of 3 is 72. What is the second largest number ?

A) 27 B) 24
C) 21 D) 42
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 24

Then,
3x + (3x + 3) + (3x + 6) = 72
9x = 63
x = 7
Largest number = 3x + 6 = 27.

=> Second largest number = 27 - 3 = 24
