Q:

At a casino in mumbai, there are three tables A, B and C. The payoffs at A is 10:1, at B is 20:1 and at C is 30:1. If a man bets Rs 200 at each table and win at two of the tables, what is the maximum and minimum difference between his earnings can be?

A) Rs.2500 B) Rs.2000
C) Rs.4000 D) None of these

Answer:   C) Rs.4000

Explanation:

Maximum earning will be only when he will won on the maximum yielding table.

    A ----> 10:1

    B ----> 20:1

    C ----> 30:1

i.e, he won on B and C but lost on A

20 x 200 + 30 x 200 -1 x 200 = 9800

minimum earning will be when he won on  table A and B and lose on that table 3.

\fn_jvn \therefore    10 x 200 + 20 x 200 - 1 x 200  

        6000-200 = 5800

\fn_jvn \therefore   Difference= 9800 - 5800 = 4000

Q:

Rajitha invested 25% more than Santhosh. Santhosh invested 30% less than Raju, who invested Rs. 6,000. What is the ratio of the amount that Rajitha invested to the total amount invested by all of them together ?

A) 25 : 114 B) 35 : 103
C) 15 : 108 D) 41 : 94
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 35 : 103

Explanation:

Santhosh's investment = 6000 x 70/100 = Rs.4200
Rajitha's investment = 4200 x 5/4 = Rs.5250
Therefore, total amount invested = 6000 + 4200 + 5250 = Rs.15450.
Required ratio = 5250 : 15450 = 35 : 103.

Q:

Vinod have 20 rupees. He bought 1, 2, 5 rupee stamps. They are different in numbers by the reason of no change, the shop keeper gives 3 one rupee stamps. So how many stamps Vinod have ?

A) 10 B) 18
C) 12 D) 15
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 10

Explanation:

Given total rupees = 20 Rs
No. of one rupee stamps = 3
Now, remaining money = Rs. 17
With that he buys only 2 and 5 rupee stamps
Let number of Rs. 5 stamps = K
Let number of Rs. 2 stamps = L
5K + 2L = 17
K = 3, L = 1 (possible)
L = 6, K = 1 (possible)
=> But given that they are different in number so, K is not equal to 3
one rupee stamps = 3
2 two stamps = 6
5 rupee stamps = 1
Total number of stamps = 10.

1st supporter recieve 440 calls
2nd supporter recieve 360 calls
3rd supporter recieve 300 calls

So total calls = 1100 calls ;
Calls this month= 1500
So remaining calls to be distributed is 400

So Now Ratio 1st:2nd:3rd ==> 440:360:300
=> 22:18:15

Now No. of More Calls 2nd supporter will get => [18/(22+18+15)] x 400
=> (18/55) x 400
=> 131 Calls
So 131 more Calls than last month.
