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:

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

Q:

If selling price is doubled, the profit triples. Find the profit percent ?

A) 100% B) 200%
C) 300% D) 400%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 100%

Explanation:

Let the C.P be Rs.100 and S.P be Rs.x, Then
The profit is (x-100)
Now the S.P is doubled, then the new S.P is 2x
New profit is (2x-100)
Now as per the given condition;
=> 3(x-100) = 2x-100
By solving, we get
x = 200
Then the Profit percent = (200-100)/100 = 100
Hence the profit percentage is 100%

Q:

Find the odd number out of the following number series?

2 4 8 11.5 18.25 28.375

A) 18.25 B) 28.375
C) 11.5 D) 8

Explanation:

Given number series follows a pattern that,

2

2 x 1.5 + 1 = 4

4 x 1.5 + 1 = 7 (not equal to 8)

7 x 1.5 + 1 = 11.5

11.5 x 1.5 + 1 = 18.25

18.25 x 1.5 + 1 = 28.375

 

Hence, the odd number in the given number series is 8.

Q:

Find the odd term from the given series of numbers  ?

125, 127, 130, 135, 142, 153, 165 ?

A) 153 B) 165
C) 142 D) 127
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 165

Explanation:

From the beginning, the next term comes by adding prime numbers in a sequence of 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13... to its previous term. But 165 will not be in the series as it must be replaced by 166 since 153+13 = 166.
