Q:

Ratio of the ages of Mahesh and Nilesh is 5 : x. Mahesh is 18 years younger to Ramesh. After nine years Ramesh will be 47 years old. If the difference between the ages of Mahesh and Nilesh is same as the age of Ramesh, what is the value of x ?

A) 11.8 B) 12.9
C) 13.7 D) 14.5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 14.5

Explanation:

Let the present ages of Mahesh, Nilesh and Ramesh be k, l and m respectively.
k/l = 5/x ------ (1)
k = m - 18 ------ (2)
m + 9 = 47 ------ (3)
k - l = m ----- (4)
(3) => m = 47 - 9 = 38 years
(2) => k = 38 -18 = 20 years
(1) => 20/l = 5/x => l = 4x
(4) => 4x - 20 = 38
=> 4x = 58 => x = 14.5

The current of a stream at 1 kmph. A motor boat goes 35 km upstream and back to the starting point in 12 hours. The speed of the motor boat in still water is ?

A) 8 kmph B) 6 kmph
C) 7.5 kmph D) 5.5 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 6 kmph

Explanation:

Speed of the stream = 1
Motor boat speed in still water be = x kmph

[35/(x + 1)] + [35/(x - 1)] = 12
x = 6 kmph

Q:

Sixty men can stitch 150 shirts in 30 days working 8 hours a day. In how many days can 35 men stitch 200 shirts working 6 hours a day ?

A) 87.5 B) 89
C) 91.5 D) 93.5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 91.5

Explanation:

We have M1 D1 H1 / W1 = M2 D2 H2 / W2 (Variation rule)
(60 x 30 x 8)/ 150 = (35 x D2 x 6) / 200
D2 = (60 x 30 x 8 x 200) / (150 x 35 x 6) => D2 = 91.42 days =~ 91.5 days.
