Solutions to Week 12 Quizzes-


1. Akshay was half of Barun’s age 10 years ago. If their present ages ratio is 3:4, what will be the total of their present ages?

a) 45

b) 30

c) 35

d) 40


Let the present ages of Akshay and Barun be 3x and 4x respectively.

Ten years ago, Akshay was half of Barun’’s age

= (3x – 10) = 1/2(4x− 10)

= 3x – 10 = 2x – 5

= x = 5

Total of their present ages

= 3x + 4x = 7x =  7 × 5 = 35

2.  A milk vendor has two jars of milk, Jar 1 and Jar 2. Jar 1 contains a mixture of milk and water in 7: 2 ratio and Jar 2 contains a mixture of milk and water in 9: 4 ratio. In what ratio of volumes should the liquids in Jar 1 and Jar 2 be combined to obtain a mixture of milk and water in 3:1 ratio?

a) 27:14

b) 27:13

c) 27:16



Concentration of milk in the first jar is 7/9 and that in the second jar is 9/13. They need to be mixed in a certain ratio to get a solution which has 3/4 milk. 

Applying alligation,

(Liquid taken from jar 1) / (Liquid taken from jar 2)

= (9/13 – 3/4) / (3/4 – 7/9)

= 27/13

3. Mitesh and Amit undertake to do a piece of work for Rs. 800. Mitesh could do it in 6 days, the other guy Amit in 8 days. With the assistance of a Umesh they finish it in 3 days. What  is the share of Umesh?

a) 200

b) 150

c) 100

d) 175


Mitesh’s a day work = 3/6, Amit’s 3 days work = 3/8.

 Umesh’s 3 days’ work = 1 — (3/6 + 3/8) = 1/8.

Clearly Rs.800 should be divided amongst them in the proportion of 3/6 : 3/8 : 1/8 or 4 : 3 : 1.

Mitesh’s share = 4/8 of Rs.800 = Rs.400.

Amit’s share = 3/8 of Rs.800 = Rs.300.

Umesh’s share = 1/8 of Rs.800 = Rs.100.

4. In a showroom, If the cost increases by 25% but the selling price remains constant and the profit is 320% of the cost. find out approximately what percentage of the selling price is the profit?

a) 30%

b) 100%

c) 70%

d) 250%


Let cost price =100

Then Profit = 320

Selling price = 100+ 320 = 420

new cost price = 125

profit =420−125=295

Required percentage = 295/420 * 100

=1475/21 %


5. Two numbers are in the ratio 2 : 3. If their L.C.M. is 48. What is the sum of the numbers?

a) 64

For all the questions below a statement is given which will be followed by assumptions numbered as 1 and 2. Look at the statements and decide which of the assumptions are implicit.Give your answer as per below options.

 Assumptions: i) The sale of all the television sets manufactured in the US is known

                              ii) The manufacturing of no other television set in the US is as large as ‘A’ brand television.

a) Only assumption I is implicit

b) Only assumption II is implicit

c) Either I or II is implicit

d) Neither I nor II is implicit

e) Both I and II are implicit


Clearly, the comparison could not be made without knowing the sale of all the radio sets. So, I is implicit. The statement mentions only that the sale is largest and nothing is mentioned about the manufacture. So, II is not implicit.
