Q:

A tank has an inlet and outlet pipe. The inlet pipe fills the tank completely in 2 hours when the outlet pipe is plugged. The outlet pipe empties the tank completely in 6 hours when the inlet pipe is pluggeed.

If there is a lekage also which is capable of draining out the liquid from the tank at half of the  rate of outet pipe,them what is the time taken to fill the emty tank when both the pipes are opened?

A) 3 hours B) 4 hours
C) 5 hours D) None of these

Answer:   B) 4 hours

Net efficiency = 50 - (16.66 + 8.33)= 25%

Time required = 100/25 = 4 hours

Q:

A can do a work in 9 days, B can do a work in 7 days, C can do a work in 5 days. A works on the first day, B works on the second day and C on the third day respectively that is they work on alternate days. When will they finish the work ?

A) [7 + (215/345)] days B) [6 + (11/215)] days
C) [6 + (261/315)] days D) [5 + (112/351)] days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) [6 + (261/315)] days

Explanation:

After day 1, A finishes 1/9 of the work.

After day 2, B finishes 1/7 more of the total work. (1/9) + (1/7) is finished.

After day 3, C finishes 1/5 more of total work. Total finished is 143/315.

So, after day 6, total work finished is 286/315.

Now remaining work = 315 - 286 = 29 /315

On day 7, A will work again

Work will be completed on day 7 when A is working. He must finish 29/315 of total remaining work.

Since he takes 9 days to finish the total task, he will need 261/315 of the day.

Total days required is 6 + (261/315) days.

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.
