Q:

A rectangular park 60 m long and 40 m wide has two concrete crossroads running in the middle of the park and rest of the park has been used as a lawn. If the area of the lawn is 2109 sq. m, then what is the width of the road?

A) 1 B) 2
C) 3 D) 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3

Explanation:

Area of the park = (60 x 40) = 2400

Area of the lawn = 2109

Area of the crossroads = (2400 - 2109) = 291

Let the width of the road be x metres. Then,

  (x - 97)(x - 3) = 0
   x = 3.

Q:

A parallelogram has sides 30m and 14m and one of its diagonals is 40m long. Then its area is

A) 136 B) 236
C) 336 D) 436
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 336

Explanation:

let ABCD be the given parallelogram

area of parallelogram ABCD = 2 x (area of triangle ABC)

now a = 30m, b = 14m and c = 40m

Area of triangle ABC = \inline {\color{Black}\sqrt{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)}}

                                   = \inline {\color{Black}\sqrt{42(12)(28)(2)}}= 168sq m

area of parallelogram ABCD = 2 x 168 = 336 sq m

Q:

The diagonal of a rectangle is  cm and its area is 20 sq. cm. The perimeter of the rectangle must be:

A) 18 B) 28
C) 38 D) 48
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 18

Explanation:

 (or)   {\color{Black} l^{2}+b^{2}=41}

Also, 

{\color{Black} (l+b)^{2}=l^{2}+b^{2}+2lb}

          = 41 + 40 = 81

(l + b) = 9.

Perimeter = 2(l + b) = 18 cm.

Q:

At what time between 5 and 6 o' clock are the hands of a 3 minutes apart ?

A) 24min B) 12min
C) 13min D) 14min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 24min

Explanation:

In this type of problems the formuae is
(5*x+ or - t)*12/11
Here x is replaced by the first interval of given time. Here x is 5.
t is spaces apart

 

Case 1 : (5*x + t) * 12/11

(5*5 + 3) * 12/11

28 * 12/11 = 336/11=  min

therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 31 5/11 min past 5.

 

Case 2 : (5*x - t) * 12/11

(5*5 -3 ) * 12/11

 22 *12/11 = 24 min

 therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 24 min past 5
