Q:

# Two old friends, Jack and Bill, meet after a long time.Jack: Hey, how are you man? Bill: Not bad, got married and I have three kids nowJack: That’s awesome. How old are they?Bill: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as your birth date.Jack: Cool … But I still don’t know.Bill : My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.Jack: Oh now I get it.How old are Bill’s kids ?

 A) 3, 3, 8 B) 2, 6, 6 C) 1, 6, 12 D) 1, 8, 9

Explanation:

Let’s break it down. The product of their ages is 72. So what are the possible choices?

2, 2, 18 – sum(2, 2, 18) = 22
2, 4, 9 – sum(2, 4, 9) = 15
2, 6, 6 – sum(2, 6, 6) = 14
2, 3, 12 – sum(2, 3, 12) = 17
3, 4, 6 – sum(3, 4, 6) = 13
3, 3, 8 – sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14
1, 8, 9 – sum(1,8,9) = 18
1, 3, 24 – sum(1, 3, 24) = 28
1, 4, 18 – sum(1, 4, 18) = 23
1, 2, 36 – sum(1, 2, 36) = 39
1, 6, 12 – sum(1, 6, 12) = 19

The sum of their ages is the same as your birth date. That could be anything from 1 to 31 but the fact that Jack was unable to find out the ages, it means there are two or more combinations with the same sum. From the choices above, only two of them are possible now.

2, 6, 6 – sum(2, 6, 6) = 14
3, 3, 8 – sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14

Since the eldest kid is taking piano lessons, we can eliminate combination 1 since there are two eldest ones. The answer is 3, 3 and 8.

Q:

Negative plus a positive equals

 A) negative B) positive C) zero D) Can't be determined

Explanation:

We know that a negative value plus a positive value always count backward and the sign depends on the bigger value sign.

When you are adding a negative number to a positive number, then the value counts backward and takes the sign of the biggest number.

For example::

-5 + 2 = -3 (big number is 5 and its sign is '-')

+5 + (-3) = 5 - 3 = +2(big number is 5 and it has sign '+').

Q:

6 choose 3 =

 A) 20 B) 30 C) 18 D) 24

Explanation:

6 choose 3 means number of possible unordered combinations when 3 items are selected from 6 available items i.e, nothing but 6C3.

Now 6C3 = 6 x 5 x 4/3 x 2 x 1 = 120/6 = 20.

Q:

Which of the following is a Composite number?

 A) 0 B) 19 C) 29 D) 91

Explanation:

Here in the given numbers 91 is a Composite number. Since it has factors of 7 and 13 other than 1 and itself.

Composite Numbers :

A composite number is a positive integer which is not prime (i.e., which has factors other than 1 and itself).

Examples :: 4, 6, 8, 12, 14, 15, 18, 20, ...

Q:

What is the value of a two–digit number?

A. The sum of the digits is 15.
B. The difference of the squares of the digits is 45.
C. The difference of their digits is 3.

 A) B and C together are sufficient B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient C) C and A together are sufficient D) A and B together are sufficient

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient

Explanation:

From the given data,

Let the two gits of a number be x & y

A) x + y = 15

B)

(x+y) (x - y) = 45

C) x - y = 3

From any 2 of the given 3 statements, we can find that 2 digit number as

2x = 18 => x = 9

=> y = 6

Hence, 2 digit number is 96.

Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient to find.

Q:

How can we get 24 as an answer by using 6, 11, 3 and 9?

This can be solved in two ways using only 6, 11, 9 and 3 we must get 24.

1. {[(11–6) x 3] + 9}

By solving this we get

5 x 3 + 9 = 15 + 9 = 24.

2. [(9–6) x (11–3)]

= 3 x 8 = 24.

Q:

Are Alternate Exterior Angles congruent?

 A) TRUE B) FALSE

Explanation:

We know that,

Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem::

The Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem states that, when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the resulting alternate exterior angles are congruent .

Converse of the Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem ::

Converse of the Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem states that, If two lines are cut by a transversal and the alternate exterior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel.
