A) 11 B) 18
C) 20 D) 21

Answer:   C) 20

Clearly, From 1 to 100, there are ten numbers with 3 as the unit's digit - 3, 13, 23, 33, 43, 53, 63, 73, 83, 93 and ten numbers with 3 as the ten's digit - 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39.

 

So, required number = 10 + 10 = 20.

Q:

A man has a certain number of small boxes to pack into parcles. If he packs 3, 4, 5 or 6 in a parcel, he is left with one over; if he packs 7 in a parcle, none is left over. What is the number of boxes, he may have to pack?

A) 106 B) 301
C) 309 D) 400
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 301

Explanation:

Clearly, the required number would be such that it leaves a remainder of 1 when divided by 3, 4, 5, or 6 and no remainder when divided by 7. Thus, the number must be of the form (L.C.M of 3, 4, 5, 6) x + 1 i.e., (60x + 1 ) and a multiple of 7. Clearly, for x = 5, the number is a multiple of 7. So the number is 301.

Q:

Ayush was born two years after his father's marriage. His mother is five years younger than his father but 20 years older than Ayush who is 10 years old. At what age did the father get married ?

A) 23 years B) 25 years
C) 33 years D) 35 years
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 23 years

Explanation:

Ayush's present age = 10 years.

His mother's present age = (10 + 20) years = 30 years.

Ayush's father's present age = (30 + 5) years = 35 years.

Ayush's father's age at the time of Ayush's birth = (35 - 10) years = 25 years.

Therefore Ayush's father's age at the time of marriage = (25 - 2) years = 23 years.

Q:

In three coloured boxes - Red, Green and Blue, 108 balls are placed. There are twice as many balls in the green and red boxes combined as there are in the blue box and twice as many in the blue box as there are in the red box. How many balls are there in the green box ?

A) 18 B) 36
C) 45 D) None of these
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) None of these

Explanation:

Let R, G and B represent the number of balls in red, green and blue boxes respectively.

Then, 

R + G + B = 108 ...(i),

G + R = 2B ...(ii)

B = 2R ...(iii)

From (ii) and (iii), we have G + R = 2x 2R = 4R or G = 3R.

Putting G = 3R and B = 2R in (i), we get:

R + 3R + 2R = 108 {\color{Blue} \Rightarrow } 6R = 108 {\color{Blue} \Rightarrow } R = 18.

Therefore Number of balls in green box = G = 3R = (3 x 18) = 54.
