Q:

The present ages of Pranay and Sai are in the ratio of 15 : 17 respectively. After 6 years, the respective ratio between the age of Pranay and Sai will be 9 : 10. What will be the age of Pranay after 6 years?

A) 42 B) 36
C) 30 D) 24
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 36

Explanation:

Let present age of Pranay = 15p

That of Sai = 17p

ATQ,

15p + 6/17p + 6 = 9/10

=> 150p + 60 = 153p + 54

=> p = 2

Therefore, Age of Pranay after 6 yrs = 15 x 2 + 6 = 36 years.

Q:

Agra and Delhi are 160 km apart. A train leaves Agra for Delhi and at the same time another train leaves Delhi for Agra. Both the trains meet 5 hrs after they start moving. If the train travelling from Agra to Delhi travels 6 km/hr faster than the other train, find the speed of the faster train? 

A) 19 kmph B) 13 kmph
C) 7 kmph D) 9 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 19 kmph

Explanation:

Let the speed of the slower train = p kmph

ATQ,

Speed of the faster train = (p + 6) kmph

Then,

(p + p + 6) x 5 = 160

10p + 30 = 160

10p = 130

p = 13 kmph

Then, speed of the faster train = p + 6 = 13 + 6 = 19 kmph.

Q:

The areas of three consecutive faces of a cuboid are 12 cm², 20cm² and 15 cm², then the volume (in cm³) of the cuboid is

A) 60 B) 55
C) 45 D) 40
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 60

Explanation:

From the given data,

let the length, breadth and height of the cuboid are m, n, r

m x n = 12

n x r = 20

r x m = 15

 

Hence, m x n x n x r x r x m = 12 x 20 x 15

mnr = sqrt of (12x20x15) = 60 cub.cm.

Q:

One fill pipe A is 3 times faster than second fill pipe B and takes 32 minutes less than the fill pipe B. When will the cistern be full if both pipes are opened together?

A) 6 min B) 8 min
C) 12 min D) 10 min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 12 min

Explanation:

Let pipe A takes p min to fill

Then,

pipe B takes 3p min to fill

=> 3p - p = 32

=> p = 16 min => 3p = 48 min

 

Required, both pipes to fill = (48 x 16)/(48 + 16) min = 12 min.
