Q:

The sum of three consecutive multiples of 3 is 72. What is the second largest number ?

 A) 27 B) 24 C) 21 D) 42

Explanation:

Let the numbers be 3x, 3x + 3 and 3x + 6.
Then,
3x + (3x + 3) + (3x + 6) = 72
9x = 63
x = 7
Largest number = 3x + 6 = 27.

=> Second largest number = 27 - 3 = 24

 A) 34 B) 36 C) 38 D) 40

Explanation:

M + Tu + W + Th = 4 x 48 = 192
Tu + W + Th + F = 4 x 46 = 184
M = 42
Tu + W + Th = 192 - 42 = 150
F = 184 – 150 = 34

Q:

4 men can repair a road in 7 hours. How many men are required to repair the road in 2 hours ?

 A) 17 men B) 14 men C) 13 men D) 16 men

Explanation:

M x T / W = Constant
where, M= Men (no. of men)
T= Time taken
So, here we apply
M1 x T1/ W1 = M2 x T2 / W2
Given that, M1 = 4 men, T1 = 7 hours ; T2 = 2 hours, we have to find M2 =?
Note that here, W1 = W2 = 1 road, ie. equal work load.
Clearly, substituting in the above equation we get, M2 = 14 men.
