Q:

Out of the five integral numbers C is the average of A and D.  B is greater than C and less than D.Also B is the average of A and E . The middle most number in the sequence 

A) A B) B
C) C D) D

Answer:   B) B



Explanation:

     D _  C  _ A          --------(1)

     D > B > C           --------(2)

from (1) and (2)

     D > B > C > A   ---------(3)

 

Again      E _ B _ A

But B > A, from (3)

So          E > D > B > C > A      [ Since B is the average of E and A so it is eqidistant from both E and A]

Q:

P, Q, R, S, T and U are six consecutive odd numbers and their average is 52. What is the product of P and U ?

A) 2212 B) 2154
C) 2349 D) 2679
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 2679

Explanation:

Let x, x+2, x+4, x+6, x+8 and x+10 are six consecutive odd numbers.

Given that their average is 52

Then, x + x+2 + x+4 + x+6 + x+8 + x+10 = 52×6

6x + 30 = 312

x = 47

So Product = 47 × 57 = 2679

A) 12 B) 10
C) 8 D) 6

Explanation:

Let the number of boys = x

From the given data,

=> [21x + 16(18)]/(x+16) = 19

=> 21x - 19x = 19(16) - 16(18)

=> 2x = 16

=> x = 8

Therefore, the number of boys in the class = 8.

Q:

The mean of 100 observations is 40. It is found that an observation 84 was misread as 48. Then the correct mean is ?

A) 40.36 B) 41.24
C) 41.92 D) 42.05
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 40.36

Explanation:

Given,

mean of 100 observations is 40

=> Total of 100 observations = 40 x 100 = 4000

84 is misread as 48

=> Difference = 84 - 48 = 36

=> Now, new total of 100 observations = 4000 + 36 = 4036

Correct Mean = 4036/100 = 40.36

Q:

Navaneet has thrice the money Poonam has and Poonam has 25% more money than Hebah. If the average money of the three is Rs. 350, What is the amount that Navaneet has ?

A) Rs. 175 B) Rs. 220.75
C) Rs. 218.55 D) Rs. 656.25
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 656.25

Explanation:

Assume Hebah has Rs. M

Since 25% more money at Poonam

=> Money at Poonam = M + (25% of M)

=> Money at Poonam = M + 0.25M = Rs. 1.25M

Money with Navaneet is thrice the money with Poonam,

=> Money at Navaneet = 3(1.25M) = Rs. 3.75M

Now, sum of all Money = (M + 1.25M + 3.75M) = Rs. 6M

But given the average of the money is Rs. 350

=> 6M/3 = 350

=> 2M = 350

=> M = 350/2 = Rs. 175

=> Amount of money Navaneet has = Rs. 3.75M = 3.75 x 175 = Rs. 656.25.

Q:

The average age of 7 boys is increased by 1 year when one of tem whose age is replaced by a girl. What is the age of the girl ?

A) 33 yrs B) 27 yrs
C) 21 yrs D) 29 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 29 yrs

Explanation:

Let the avg age of 7 boys be 'p' years
Let the age of the girl be 'q' years
From given data,
The age of 7 boys = 7p years
Now the new average = (p + 1) when 22 yrs is replaced by q
Now the age of all 7 will become = 7(p + 1) yrs
Hence, 7p - 22 + q = 7(p + 1) yrs
7p - 22 + q = 7p + 7
q = 22 + 7 = 29

Therefore, the age of girl = q = 29 years.
