A) Earthquakes | B) Rainfall |

C) Ocean depth | D) Sound intensity |

Explanation:

**Fathometer** is used to measure **Ocean depth.**

Fathometer is A** depth finder** that uses sound waves to determine the depth of water.

The Richter Scale* *is used to measure the intensity of Earthquakes.

The Decibel Scale is used to measure sound intensity.

A) 54 past 4 | B) (53 + 7/11) past 4 |

C) (54 + 8/11) past 4 | D) (54 + 6/11) past 4 |

Explanation:

4 o'clock, the hands of the watch are 20 min. spaces apart.

To be in opposite directions, they must be 30 min. spaces apart.

Minute hand will have to gain 50 min. spaces.

55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min

50 min. spaces are gained in $\frac{60}{55}\times 50$ min. or $54\frac{6}{11}$

Required time = $54\frac{6}{11}$ min. past 4.

A) 200, 250, 300 | B) 300, 200, 250 |

C) 200, 300, 400 | D) None of these |

Explanation:

A's 5 days work = 50%

B's 5 days work = 33.33%

C's 2 days work = 16.66% [100- (50+33.33)]

Ratio of contribution of work of A, B and C = $50:33\frac{1}{3}:16\frac{2}{3}$ = 3 : 2 : 1

A's total share = Rs. 1500

B's total share = Rs. 1000

C's total share = Rs. 500

A's one day's earning = Rs.300

B's one day's earning = Rs.200

C's one day's earning = Rs.250

A) 44 | B) 45 |

C) 46 | D) 50 |

Explanation:

Number of squares in the given figure is

**16 + 9 + 19 + 1 = 45.**

A) reverse osmosis | B) diffusion |

C) centrifugation | D) dialysis |

Explanation:

The working principle of a washing machine is centrifugation.

Centrifugation is a separation process which uses the action of centrifugal force to promote accelerated settling of particles in a solid-liquid mixture.

The washing machine consists of centrifuge for this purpose. A centrifuge is a piece of equipment that puts an object in rotation around a fixed axis, applying a force perpendicular to the axis of spin that can be very strong.

A) (9 + 10/11) min past 2 | B) (10 + 10/11) min past 2 |

C) (11 + 10/11) min past 2 | D) (12 + 10/11) min past 2 |

Explanation:

At 2 o'clock, the hour hand is at 2 and the minute hand is at 12, i.e. they are 10 min spaces apart.

To be together, the minute hand must gain 10 minutes over the hour hand.

Now, 55 minutes are gained by it in 60 min.

10 minutes will be gained in $\frac{60}{55}\times 10$ min. = $10\frac{10}{11}$ min.

The hands will coincide at $10\frac{10}{11}$ min. past 2.

A) 196 | B) 182 |

C) 199 | D) 204 |

Explanation:

The given series follows a logic that

11 x 12, 12 x 13, 13 x 14, 14 x 15, 15 x 16,...

So the missing number is 13 x 14 = 182
