Q:

What was the day on 15th august 1947 ?

A) Friday B) Saturday
C) Sunday D) Thursday
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Friday

Explanation:

15 Aug, 1947 = (1946 years + Period from 1.1.1947 to 15.8.1947)

 

 

 

Odd days in 1600 years = 0

 

 

 

Odd days in 300 years = 1

 

 

 

46 years = (35 ordinary years + 11 leap years) = (35 x 1 + 11 x 2)= 57 (8 weeks + 1 day) = 1 odd day

 

 

 

Jan.   Feb.   Mar.   Apr.   May.   Jun.   Jul.   Aug

 

 

 

( 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15 ) = 227 days = (32 weeks + 3 days) = 3 odd days.

 

 

 

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 1 + 3) = 5 odd days.

 

 

 

Hence, as the number of odd days = 5 , given day is Friday.

Q:

Tea worth of Rs. 135/kg & Rs. 126/kg are mixed with a third variety in the ratio 1: 1 : 2. If the mixture is worth Rs. 153 per kg, the price of the third variety per kg will be____?

A) Rs. 169.50 B) Rs.1700
C) Rs. 175.50 D) Rs. 180
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Rs. 175.50

Explanation:

Since first second varieties are mixed in equal proportions, so their average price = Rs.(126+135)/2= Rs.130.50

So, Now the mixture is formed by mixing two varieties, one at Rs. 130.50 per kg and the other at say Rs. 'x' per kg in the ratio 2 : 2, i.e., 1 : 1. We have to find 'x'.

 

Cost of 1 kg tea of 1st kind         Cost of 1 kg tea of 2nd kind 

 

 

  

x-153/22.50 = 1  => x - 153 = 22.50  => x=175.50.

 Hence, price of the third variety = Rs.175.50 per kg.
