Q:

Logical puzzle

You work at a fruit factory.
There are 3 crates in front of you. One crate contains only apples. One crate contains only oranges. The other crate contains both apples and oranges. And each crate is labeled. One reads "apples", one reads "oranges", and one reads "apples and oranges". But the labeling machine has gone crazy and is now labeling all boxes incorrectly. If you can only take out and look at just one of the pieces of fruit from just one of the crates, how can you label ALL of the crates correctly?

Answer

Our solution:

Take a piece of fruit from the "apples and oranges" crate. If it's an apple then you know that is the "apples" crate since ALL THE CRATES ARE LABELED INCORRECTLY. This means the crate marked "apples" must be "oranges" and the crate marked "oranges" must be "apples and oranges".

Q:

Which number multiplied by itself will give the output as 12345678987654321 ?

Answer

11 * 11 = 121

111 * 111 = 12321

what we observe is that the square of the number follows a pattern: 2 1's gives 121. 3 1's gives 12321.

so to get 12345678987654321 we need to get square of 9 1's(111,111,111).

Q:

Calculate the angle between the two hands of clock when the clock shows 4 : 20 p.m. ?

 A) 5 degrees B) 10 degrees C) 15 degrees D) 25 degrees

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 10 degrees

Explanation:

Since at 4 : 20 the minute hand will be at 4 and the angle between them will be same as the distance covered in degree by the hour hand in 20 minutes.

Required angle = distance of hour hand = speed × time = $\frac{1}{2}$× 20 =10 degrees.
