Q:

A single reservoir supplies the petrol to the whole city, while the reservoir is fed by a single pipeline filling the reservoir with the stream of uniform volume. When the reservoir is full and if 40,000 liters of petrol is used daily, the suply fails in 90 days.If 32,000 liters of petrol is used daily, it fails in 60 days. How much petrol can be used daily with out the supply ever failing? 

A) 64000 liters B) 56000 liters
C) 78000 liters D) 60000 liters

Answer:   B) 56000 liters

Explanation:

Let x liter be the per day filling and v litr be the capacity of the reservoir, then 

      90x + v = 40000 * 90     -----(1)

      60x + v= 32000 * 60     ------(2)

solving eq.(1) and (2) , we get

      x = 56000

Hence , 56000 liters per day can be used without the failure of supply.

Q:

A take twice as much time as B or thrice as much time to finish a piece of work. Working together, they can finish the work in 2 days. B can do the work alone in  ?

A) 8 hrs B) 12 hrs
C) 6 hrs D) 4 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 6 hrs

Explanation:

Suppose A, B and C take x, x/2 and x/3 respectively to finish the work. 

Then, (1/x + 2/x + 3/x) = 1/2 
 
6/x = 1/2 => x = 12 
 
So, B takes 6 hours to finish the work.

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.

Q:

A can complete a piece of work in 12 days and B is 60% more efficient than A. In how many days B will complete the same work  ?

A) 8.7 hrs B) 5.2 hrs
C) 5 hrs D) 7.5 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 7.5 hrs

Explanation:

Ratio of times taken by A and B = 160 : 100
A can do the work in 12 days
Let B can do the work in "D" days
=> 160:100 = 12 : D
=> D = 12 x 100/160 = 7.5 hrs

Q:

A can finish a work in 18 days and B can do the same work in half the time taken by A. then, working together, what part of the same work they can finish in a day ?

A) Total work B) One-fourth work
C) Half work D) Two-third work
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Half work

Explanation:

A can do the work = 18 days
B can do the work = 18/2 = 9 days
(A + B)'s 1 day work = 1/18 + 1/9 = 1/6
=> In 3 days = 3x1/6 = 1/2 work is completed.

Q:

10 boys can complete a work in 7 days and 10 girls take 14 days to complete the work. How many days will 5 boys and 10 girls take to complete the work ?

A) 13 days B) 10 days
C) 7 days D) 16 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 7 days

Explanation:

1 boy's 1 day work = 1/70
1 girl's 1 day work = 1/140
(5 boys + 10 girls)'s 1 day work
= (5/70 + 10/140) = (1/14 + 1/14) = 1/7

5 boys and 10 girls will complete the work in 7 days.
