Odd days in 1600 years = 0 

 

Odd days in 300 years = 1

 

46 years = (35 ordinary years + 11 leap years) = (35 x 1 + 11 x 2)= 57 (8 weeks + 1 day) = 1 odd day 

 

Jan.   Feb.   Mar.   Apr.   May.   Jun.   Jul.   Aug 

 

( 31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 15 ) = 227 days = (32 weeks + 3 days) = 3 odd days.

 

Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 1 + 3) = 5 odd days. 

 

 

Hence, as the number of odd days = 5 , given day is Friday.

Q:

If 20% of a = b, then b% of 20 is the same as :

A) 4% of a B) 6% of a
C) 8% of a D) 10% of a

Q:

Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg of fresh fruits ?

A) 20 B) 30
C) 40 D) 50
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 40

Explanation:

The fruit content in both the fresh fruit and dry fruit is the same.

 

Given, fresh fruit has 68% water.so remaining 32% is fruit content. weight of fresh fruits is 100kg

 

Dry fruit has 20% water.so remaining 80% is fruit content.let weight if dry fruit be y kg.

 

Fruit % in freshfruit = Fruit% in dryfruit 

 

Therefore, (32/100) x 100 = (80/100 ) x y 

 

we get, y = 40 kg.

Q:

A problem is given to three students whose chances of solving it are 1/2, 1/3 and 1/4 respectively. What is the probability that the problem will be solved?

A) 1/4 B) 1/2
C) 3/4 D) 7/12
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 3/4

Explanation:

Let A, B, C be the respective events of solving the problem and A , B, C be the respective events of not solving the problem. Then A, B, C are independent event

A, B, C are independent events

Now,  P(A) = 1/2 , P(B) = 1/3 and P(C)=1/4

 PA=12, PB=23, PC= 34

 P( none  solves the problem) = P(not A) and (not B) and (not C)  

                  = PABC 

                  = PAPBPC          A, B, C are Independent                       

                  =  12×23×34  

                  = 14  

Hence, P(the problem will be solved) = 1 - P(none solves the problem) 

                = 1-14= 3/4
