Q:

What was the day on 15th august 1947 ?

 A) Friday B) Saturday C) Sunday D) Thursday

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:

The diluted wine contains only 8 liters of wine and the rest is water. A new mixture whose concentration is 30%, is to be  formed by replacing wine. How many liters of mixture shall be replaced with pure wine if there was initially 32 liters of water in the mixture ?

 A) 4 B) 5 C) 8 D) None of these

Explanation:

Wine                         Water

8L                              32L

1                :               4

20 %                           80% (original ratio)

30 %                           70% (required ratio)

In  ths case, the percentage of water being reduced when the mixture is being replaced with wine.

so the ratio of left quantity to the initial quantity is 7:8

Therefore , $\inline \fn_jvn \frac{7}{8}=\left [ 1-\frac{K}{40} \right ]$

=> $\inline \fn_jvn \frac{7}{8}=\left [ \frac{40-K}{40} \right ]$ = K = 5 Lit
