Q:

Adam and Smith are working on a project. Adam takes 6 hrs to type 36 pages on a computer, while Smith takes 5 hrs to type 40 pages. How much time will they take, working together on two different computers to type a project of 120 pages?

A) 8 hrs 45 min B) 8 hrs 42 min
C) 8 hrs D) 8 hrs 34 min

Answer:   D) 8 hrs 34 min



Explanation:

Number of pages typed by Adam in 1 hour =  = 6
Number of pages typed by Smith in 1 hour =  = 8
Number of pages typed by both in 1 hour = (6 + 8) = 14
Time taken by both to type 110 pages = (120 * 1/14) = 8  = 8 hrs 34 min.

Q:

P and Q were assigned to do a work for an amount of 1200. P alone can do it in 15 days while Q can do it in 12 days. With the help of R they finish the work in 6 days. Find the share of R ?

A) 120 B) 240
C) 360 D) 180
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 120

Explanation:

1/15 + 1/12 + 1/R = 1/6, we got R = 60 (it means R will take 60 days to complete the work alone)
so ratio of work done by P:Q:R = 1/15 : 1/12 : 1/60 = 5 : 4 : 1
so R share = (1/10)x1200 = 120.

Q:

A group of men can complete a job in K hours. After every 4 hours, half the number of men working at that point of time leave the job. Continuing this way if the job is finished in 16 hours, what is the value of K ?

A) 7 hrs B) 7.5 hrs
C) 8 hrs D) 8.25 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 7.5 hrs

Explanation:

Let there are L men

job requires LK man hours.

job completed in first 4 hrs = Lx4 = 4L
job completed in next 4 hrs = 4xL/2 = 2L
job completed in next 4 hrs = 4xL/4 = L
job completed in last 4 hrs = 4xL/8 = L/2
4L + 2L + L + L/2 = KL
K = 7+1/2 = 7.5 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.
