Q:

One girl can eat 112 chocolates in half a minute, and her boy friend can eat half as many in twice the length of time. How many chocolates can both boy and girl eat in 12 seconds ?

A) 44 B) 32
C) 56 D) 49
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 56

Explanation:

Girl eats 112 chocolates in 30 sec
so she can eat in 12 sec is 12 x 112/30 = 44.8 chocolates.

Her boy friend can eat one-half of 112 in twice of 30 sec
so he can eat 56 in 60 sec
Then he can eat in 12 sec is 56 x 12/60 = 11.2 chocolates.

Hence, together they can eat
=> 44.8 + 11.2
56 chocolates in 12 seconds.

Q:

Two boys and a girl can do a work in 5 days, while a boy and 2 girls can do it in 6 days. If the boy is paid at the rate of 28$ a week, what should be the wages of the girl a week ?

A) 24 $ B) 22 $
C) 16 $ D) 14 $
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 16 $

Explanation:

Let the 1 day work of a boy=b and a girl=g, then
2b + g = 1/5 ---(i) and
b + 2g = 1/6 ---(ii)
On solving (i) & (ii), b=7/90, g=2/45
As payment of work will be in proportion to capacity of work and a boy is paid $ 28/week,
so a girl will be paid 28x  = 16 $.

Q:

6 boys and 8 girls can do job in 10 days , 26 boys & 48 women do work in 2 days. Find time taken by 15 boys and 20 girls to do same work ?

A) 2 days B) 3 days
C) 4 days D) 5 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4 days

Explanation:

One day work of 6 boys and 8 girls is given as 6b + 8g = 1/10 -------->(I)
One day work of 26 boys and 48 women is given as 26b + 48w = 1/2 -------->(II)

Divide both sides by 2 in (I) and then multiply both sides by 5
Now we get
15b + 20g = 1/4.
Therefore, 15 boys and 20 girls can do the same work in 4 days.

Q:

In a regular week, there are 5 working days and for each day, the working hours are 8. A man gets Rs. 2.40 per hour for regular work and Rs. 3.20 per hours for overtime. If he earns Rs. 432 in 4 weeks, then how many hours does he work for ?

A) 145 B) 165
C) 175 D) 135
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 175

Explanation:

Given that
working days = 5;
working hours = 8;
A man get rupess per hour is Rs.2.40;
So in one day the man get total rupees is 2.40 x 8 = 19.2
So in 5 days week the man get total rupees is 19.2 x 5 = 96
So in 4 week the man get total rupees is 96 x 4 = 384
So the man worked for = 160hours in 4 weeks
But given that the man earned Rs.432
Hence remaning money is (432-384 = 48)which is earn by doing overtime work
Overtime hours is = 48/3.20 = 15
So total worked hours is = 15 + 160 = 175.
