Q:

# A straight fence is to be constructed from posts 6 inches wide and separated by lengths of chain 5 feet long. If a certain fence begins and ends with a post, which of the following could be the length of the fence in feet? (12 inches = 1 foot).

 A) 17 B) 18 C) `19 D) 20

Explanation:

The fence will consist of one more post than there are chains. (e.g. P-c-P-c-P).

Therefore, a total length has to be a multiple of the length of the chain plus one post (5.5) plus one post extra.We have length = (5.5n + 0.5), where n can be any positive whole number. If n= 3, length =17

Q:

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is

 A) 1 B) 0 C) -1 D) Infinity

Explanation:

The mutiplicative inverse of a number is nothing but a reciprocal of a number.

Now, the product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is always equal to 1.

For example :

Let the number be 15

Multiplicative inverse of 15 = 1/15

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is = 15 x 1/15 = 1.

Q:

25 divided by 7

 A) 3.571 B) 35.71 C) 0.351 D) 0.0357

Explanation:

Here we have 25 divided by 7.

25 will not go directly in 7

Hence, we get the result in decimals.

25/7 = 3.571.

Q:

Which of the following is not a prime number?

 A) 5 B) 11 C) 21 D) 37

Explanation:

A prime number is a whole number greater than 1 whose only factors are 1 and itself.

Factors of 5 are 1, 5

Factors of 11 are 1, 11

Factors of 21 are 1, 3, 7, 21

Factors of 37 are 1, 37.

Hence, according to the definition of a prime number, 21 is not a prime number as it has more than two factors.

Q:

The sum of three consecutive odd numbers is 93. What is the middle number?

 A) 31 B) 33 C) 29 D) 27

Explanation:

Let the three consecutive odd numbers be x, x+2, x+4

Then,

x + x + 2 + x + 4 = 93

=> 3x + 6 = 93

=> 3x = 87

=> x = 29 => 29, 31, 33 are three consecutive odd numbers.

Therefore, the middle number is 31.

Q:

How many numbers up to 300 and 700 are divisible by 2, 3 and 7 both together ?

 A) 7 B) 9 C) 11 D) 5

Explanation:

LCM of 2, 3, 7 is 42.

=> (700 – 300)/42 = 9  22/42 => 9 Numbers.

Q:

In a triangle ABC, angle 'a' is the smallest one & A+7B = 112. Find the range of value 'c' ?

 A) 138 to 164 B) 125 to 147 C) 148 to 158 D) 152 to 164

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 152 to 164

Explanation:

A+7B=112

it is clear that A = 14, then it becomes A>=B, but A is smallest angle) given
so, range of A is 0.0001 to 13.9999 ( I am taking upto 4 decimal places)
so, range of B becomes 14 to 16 ( after rounding off to 4 decimal places)
so, range of C becomes 152 to 164 ( after rounding off to 4 decimal places)
