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:

A problem is given to three students whose chances of solving it are 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 respectively. What is the probability that the problem will be solved?

A) 1/4 B) 1/2
C) 3/4 D) 7/12
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3/4

Explanation:

Let A, B, C be the respective events of solving the problem and A , B, C be the respective events of not solving the problem. Then A, B, C are independent event

A, B, C are independent events

Now,  P(A) = 1/2 , P(B) = 1/3 and P(C)=1/4

 PA=12, PB=23, PC= 34

 P( none  solves the problem) = P(not A) and (not B) and (not C)  

                  = PABC 

                  = PAPBPC          A, B, C are Independent                       

                  =  12×23×34  

                  = 14  

Hence, P(the problem will be solved) = 1 - P(none solves the problem) 

                = 1-14= 3/4

Q:

A can do a piece of work in 10 days, B in 15 days. They work together for 5 days, the rest of the work is finished by C in two more days. If they get Rs. 3000 as wages for the whole work, what are the daily wages of A, B and C respectively (in Rs):

A) 200, 250, 300 B) 300, 200, 250
C) 200, 300, 400 D) None of these
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 300, 200, 250

Explanation:

A's 5 days work = 50% 

 

B's 5 days work = 33.33%

 

C's 2 days work = 16.66%          [100- (50+33.33)]

 

 Ratio of contribution of work of A, B and C = 50 : 3313 : 1623 

 

                                                               = 3 : 2 : 1  

 

A's total share = Rs. 1500

 

B's total share = Rs. 1000

 

C's total share = Rs. 500 

 

A's one day's earning = Rs.300 

 

B's one day's earning = Rs.200 

 

C's one day's earning = Rs.250

Q:

What was the day of the week on, 16th July, 1776?

A) Tuesday B) Wednesday
C) Monday D) Saturday
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Tuesday

Explanation:

16th July, 1776 = (1775 years + Period from 1st Jan, 1776 to 16th July, 1776)

 Counting of odd days :

 1600 years have 0 odd day.

          • 100 years have 5 odd days.
          • 75 years = (18 leap years + 57 ordinary years) =  [(18 x 2) + (57 x 1)] = 93 (13 weeks + 2 days) = 2 odd days


1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 7 odd days = 0 odd day.

 

 Jan   Feb   Mar   Apr   May   Jun   Jul 

 

31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 16 = 198 days= (28 weeks + 2 days) 

 Total number of odd days = (0 + 2) = 2. 

 

Required day was 'Tuesday'.
