Solutions to Week 14 Quizzes
1 The ratio of the age of a man and his wife is 4:3. At the time of marriage the ratio was 5:3 and, After 4 years this ratio will become 9:7. How many years ago were they married?
- 8 years
- 11 years
- 12 years
- 10 years
Let present age of the man and his wife be 4x & 3x respectively
After 4 years this ratio will be 9:7
(4x + 4) : (3x + 4) = 9:7
7(4x + 4) = 9(3x + 4)
28x + 28 = 27x + 36
Present age of the man = 4x = 4*8 = 32
Present age of women (wife) = 3x = 3*8 = 24
Assume that they got married before t years. then ,
(32 – t) : (24 – t) = 5:3
3(32 – t) = 5(24 – t)
96 – 3t = 120 – 5t
2t = 24
t= 24/2 = 12 , They were married 12 years ago.
2. Speed of a boat in standing water is 14 kmph and the speed of the stream is 1.2 kmph. A man rows to a place at a distance of 4864 km and comes back to the starting point. The total time taken by him is:
- 1400 hours
- 350 hours
- 700 hours
- 1010 hours
Speed downstream = (14 + 1.2) = 15.2 kmph
Speed upstream = (14 – 1.2) = 12.8 kmph
Total time taken = 4864/15.2 + 4864/12.8
= 320 + 380 = 700 hours
3. What day of the week does May 28 2006 fall on
28th May 2006 = (2005 years + period from 1-Jan-2006 to 28-May-2006)
We know that number of odd days in 400 years = 0
Hence the number of odd days in 2000 years = 0 (Since 2000 is a perfect multiple of 400)
Number of odd days in the period 2001-2005
= 4 normal years + 1 leap year
= 4 x 1 + 1 x 2 = 6
Days from 1-Jan-2006 to 28-May-2006 = 31 (Jan) + 28 (Feb) + 31 (Mar) + 30 (Apr) + 28(may)
148 days = 21 weeks + 1 day = 1 odd day
Total number of odd days = (0 + 6 + 1) = 7 odd days = 0 odd day
0 odd day = Sunday
Hence May 28 2006 is Sunday
4. P, Q and R can do work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. How many days does it need to complete the work if P does the work and he is assisted by Q and R on every third day?
- 15 days
- 14 days
- 10 days
- 9 days
Amount of work P can do in 1 day = 1/20
Amount of work Q can do in 1 day = 1/30
Amount of work R can do in 1 day = 1/60
P is working alone and every third day Q and R is helping him
Work completed in every three days = 2 × (1/20) + (1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60) = 1/5
So work completed in 15 days = 5 × 1/5 = 1
The work will be done in 15 days
5. In a 300 metres race Allwin beats Brandon by 22.5 metres or 6 seconds. Brandon’s time over the course is:

- 86 seconds
- 80 seconds
- None of the above
Bransdon runs 22.5 metres in 6 seconds
= Brandon runs 200 metres in 6/22.5 * 300 = 80 seconds
That is, Brandon’s time over the course is 80 seconds

Choice B, although casual, doesn’t sound as though it would be the kind of special and memorable evening that Elena is looking for. Choice D, which is owned by a former baseball star and is described as “charming” and “reminiscent of a baseball clubhouse”, sounds perfect for Elena’s husband, who is described as a baseball fan and a man with simple tastes.
