Q:

The angle between the minute hand and the hour hand of a clock when the time is 4.15 is

 A) 0 B) 37.5 C) 27 D) 15

Explanation:

Angle between hands of a clock

When the minute hand is behind the hour hand, the angle between the two hands at M minutes past H 'o clock

=> $30H-M5+M2$ degrees

Here H = 4, M = 15 and the minute hand is behind the hour hand.

Hence the angle

= 30[4-(15/5)]+15/2 = 30(1)+7.5 = 37.5 degrees

Q:

K can lay Highway road between two cities in 16 days. L can do the same job in 12 days. With the help of M, they completes the job in 4 days. How much days does it take for M alone to complete the work ?

 A) 47/7 days B) 59/6 days C) 48/5 days D) 57/5 days

Explanation:

Amount of work K can do in 1 day = 1/16

Amount of work L can do in 1 day = 1/12

Amount of work K, L and M can together do in 1 day = 1/4

Amount of work M can do in 1 day = 1/4 - (1/16 + 1/12) = 3/16 – 1/12 = 5/48

=> Hence M can do the job on 48/5 days = 9 (3/5) days

Q:

Manju borrows Rs.5000 for 2 years at 4% p.a. simple interest from Sudha. She immediately lends it to another person at 6 1⁄4% p.a for 2 years. Find her gain in the transaction per year.

 A) Rs. 101 B) Rs. 98.5 C) Rs. 124.3 D) Rs. 112.5

Explanation:

Manju borrows Rs. 5000 for 2 years at 4% p.a. simple interest

She also lends it at 6 1⁄4% p.a for 2 years

=> Total Gain = 6 1/4% − 4% = 2 1/4%

So her gain in the transaction for 1 year

= The simple interest she gets for Rs.5000 for 1 year at 2 1⁄4% per annum

$PTR100=5000×94×1100$ = Rs. 112.5/ year.

Q:

Can you Solve the Problem ? Let the two digits be x & y

From given data in the question, we get

x + y = 3(x - y)

x + y = 3x - 3y

=> 2x = 4y

x/y = 2/1

For having the 2:1, numbers satisfying are

12, 21, 24, 42, 36, 63, 48, 84

From this 36 is eleminated because it is a perfect square and no others are prime or perfect squares.

Hence, there exists 7 such 2-digit numbers => 12, 21, 24, 42, 63, 48, 84.
