Q:

At what time between 3 and 4 o’clock will the minute hand and the hour hand are on the same straight line but facing opposite directions ?

A) 3:15 2/8 B) 3:49
C) 3:49 1/11 D) 3:51
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3:49 1/11

Explanation:

On straight line means 180 degree angle.
180 = 11/2 min – 30 hrs
180 = 11/2 m – 30 × 3
180 = 11/2 m – 90
(180 + 90) 2 = 11 m
m = 540/11 = 49 1/11 minutes.

Q:

The minimum number of half years in which a sum of money kept at 60% compound interest will be quadrupled is ?

A) 2 B) 4
C) 3 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 6

Explanation:

Let us assume Amount be 100 Rs and we calculate in CI

First year 60% of 100 = 60 amount (100+60) is 160

Second year 60% of 160 = 96 amount (160+96) is 256

Third year 60% of 256 =153.6 amount (256+153.6) is 409.6

Here the Amount of 100 Rs is quadrapled in 3 years.

One year contains 2 half years

Three year has 6 half years.

 It takes 6 half years.
