Q:

A tailor had a number of shirt pieces to cut from a roll of fabric. He cut each roll of equal length into 10 pieces. He cut at the rate of 45 cuts a minute. How many rolls would be cut in 24 minutes ?

A) 32 rolls B) 54 rolls
C) 108 rolls D) 120 rolls

Answer:   D) 120 rolls



Explanation:

Number of cuts made to cut a roll into 10 pieces = 9.

Therefore, Required number of rolls = (45 x 24)/9 = 120.

Q:

What is the product of a number and its reciprocal?

A) 0 B) 1
C) -ve of the number D) the number itself
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 1

Explanation:

The product of a number and its reciprocal is always equals to 1.

 

For Example : Let the number be 4.

Now, its reciprocal is 1/4

Hence, required product = 4 x 1/4 = 1.

 

Now, take the number as -15.

Then its reciprocal is -1/15

Required product = -15 x -1/15 = 1.

 

Hence, the product of a number and its reciprocal is 1.

Q:

A plane is an undefined term because it

A) is a flat surface that extends indefinitely in all directions B) is where other geometric shapes can be constructed
C) is described generally, not using a formal definition D) can be named using three noncollinear points
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) is described generally, not using a formal definition

Explanation:

In geometry, we can define plane as a flat surface with no thickness.

The surface extends with no ends.

A plane does not have any edges even if we draw it on paper with edges, it does't mean it has edges.

 

Hence, A plane is an undefined term because it is described generally, not using a formal definition.

Q:

Absolute value of 9?

A) 0 B) 9
C) 8 D) -9
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 9

Explanation:

Absolute value of a number :

It means that the distance of a number from 0 on a number line. 

 

Here absolute value of 9 is that on a number line 9 is 9 units away from 0. Hence its absolute value is 9. Similarly, absolute value of -9 means -9 is also 9 units away from the 0 on number line. Hence, absolute value of -9 is also 9.

 

Hence, the absolute value of 9 is 9.

Q:

Is a square a rhombus?

A) TRUE B) FALSE
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) TRUE

Explanation:

Yes, a square is a rhombus. But a rhombus is not a square unless the interior angles are at right angles.


 


We know that, a square is a quadrilateral with all sides equal and all the interior angles are 90 deg i.e, at right angles. 


Whereas


a rhombus is also a quadrilateral with all sides equal but the interior angles are not at right angles. Hence, if the interior angles of a rhombus are all at right angles (90 deg), then it is square.

Q:

How many times can you subtract 5 from 25?

Answer

Technically or logically it is possible only once. As if you subtract 5 from 25 at first te result will be 20. Now, you can't subtract 5 from 25 since the left number is 20.


 


But if you go mathematically, it can be done infinite times and only 5 times without going into the negatives.

Q:

18 tens 20 ones =

A) 1820 B) 180
C) 200 D) 160
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 200

Explanation:

18 tens 20 ones, the given stateent can be split into

18 tens = 18 x 10 = 180

20 ones = 20 x 1 = 20

 

Then add both => 180 + 20 = 200

 

Hence, 18 tens 20 ones = 200.
