Q:

Equal quantities of three mixtures of milk and water are mixed in the ratio 1:2, 2:3 and 3:4. The ratio of water and milk in the mixture is ?

A) 193 : 122 B) 97 : 102
C) 115 : 201 D) 147 : 185
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 193 : 122

Explanation:

Given the three mixtures ratio as (1:2),(2:3),(3:4)

(1+2),(2+3),(3+4)

Total content = 3,5,7

Given equal quantities of the three mixtures are mixed, then LCM of 3, 5, 7 = 105

105/3 = 35 , 105/5 = 21 , 105/7 = 15

Now, the individual equal quantity ratios are (35x1, 35x2), (21x2, 21x3), (15x3, 15x4)

(35,70), (42,63), (45,60)

So overall mixture ratio of milk and water is

35+42+45 : 70+63+60

122:193

But in the question asked the ratio of water to milk = 193 : 122

What is the output of this program ?

class main_arguments {
            public static void main(String [ ] args)
            {
                String [][] argument = new String[2][2];
                int x;
                argument[0] = args;
                x = argument[0].length;
                for (int y = 0; y < x; y++)
                    System.out.print(" " + argument[0][y]);           
            }
        }

A) 1 1 B) 1 0
C) 1 0 3 D) 1 2 3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 1 2 3

Explanation:

In argument[0] = args;, the reference variable arg[0], which was referring to an array with two elements, is reassigned to an array (args) with three elements.
Output:
$ javac main_arguments.java
$ java main_arguments
1 2 3

Q:

The largest measuring cylinder that can accurately fill 3 tanks of capacity 98, 182 and 266 litres each, is of capacity ?

A) 7 lts B) 14 lts
C) 98 lts D) 42 lts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 14 lts

Explanation:

To know the the measuring cylinder that can fill all the given capacities , they must be divisible by the required number.

98,182,266 all are divisible by 14
So  14 litres  is the largest cylinder that can fill all the given cylinders.

                                       (or)

The other method is take HCF of all given capacities i.e 98, 182 and 266.
