Q:

On 24th Nov, 2007 Thursday falls. What day of the week was it on 10th Nov, 2006 ?

A) Wednesday B) Tuesday
C) Friday D) Thursday
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Wednesday

Explanation:

The year 2006 is an ordinary year. So, it has 1 odd day.
So, the day on 24th Nov, 2007 will be 1 day beyond the day on 24th Nov, 2006.
But, 24th Nov, 2007 is Thursday.
24 - 10 = 14 days.
Therefore, 2 weeks ago it is same day.
Thus, 10th Nov, 2006 is one day before 10th Nov, 2007 i.e. it is Wednesday.

Q:

5/9 of the part of the population in a village are females. If 30 % of the females are married. The percentage of unmarried males in the total males is ?

A) 62.5 % B) 125 %
C) 84.32 % D) 46.87 %
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 62.5 %

Explanation:

Let total population = p
number of females = 5p/9
number of males =(p-5p/9) = 4p/9
married females = 30% of 5p/9 = 30x5p/100x9 = p/6
married males = p/6
unmarried males =(4p/9-p/6) = 5p/18
Percentage of unmarried males in the total males = {(5p/18)/4p/9}x100 = (5p/18)x(9/4p) = 125/2 % = 62.5%
