Q1. The length of a tunnel that can be reached in 30 seconds by a Durunto 130 meters long and travelling at 45 km / h  is:

  1. 200 m
  2. 225 m
  3. 245 m
  4. 250 m

Answer: Option C


Speed = 45 x 5 m/sec = 25 m/sec.
18 2

Time = 30 sec.

Let the length of tunnel be x metres.

Then, 130 + x = 25
30 2

2(130 + x) = 750

x = 245 m.

Q2. Amitabh is two years older than Bala who is twice as old as Chandni. If the total of the ages of Amitabh, Bala and Chandni be 27, then how old is Bala?

  1. 7
  2. 8
  3. 9
  4. 10

Answer: Option D


Let C’s age be x years. Then, B’s age = 2x years. A’s age = (2x + 2) years.

(2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27

5x = 25

x = 5.

Hence, B’s age = 2x = 10 years.


In a game of chess, Anand can give Bishwa 15 points in 60 and Anand can give Chandra to 20 points in 60. How many points can Bishwa give Chandra in a game of 90?

  1. 30
  2. 20
  3. 10
  4. 12

Answer: Option C


A : B = 60 : 45.

A : C = 60 : 40.

B = B x A = 45 x 60 = 45 = 90 = 90 : 80.
C A C 60 40 40 80

B can give C 10 points in a game of 90.

Q4. Raman possessed some oranges. He is selling 40% of them, and still has 420 oranges. He had initially got:

  1. 588 oranges
  2. 600 oranges
  3. 672 oranges
  4. 700 oranges

Answer: Option D


Suppose originally he had x oranges.

Then, (100 – 40)% of x = 420.

60 x x = 420
x = 420 x 100   = 700.

Q5. Jalesh and Star are sailing in the sea on the two sides of a lighthouse. The angle of elevation of the top of the lighthouse is observed from the ships are 30° and 45° respectively. If the lighthouse is 100 m high, the distance between Jalesh and Star:

  1. 173 m
  2. 200 m
  3. 273 m
  4. 300 m

Answer: Option C


Let AB be the lighthouse and C and D be the positions of the ships.

Then, AB = 100 m, ACB = 30° and ADB = 45°.

AB = tan 30° = 1         AC = AB x 3 = 1003 m.
AC 3
AB = tan 45° = 1         AD = AB = 100 m.
CD = (AC + AD) = (1003 + 100) m
= 100(3 + 1)
= (100 x 2.73) m

1.- What was the difference in the number of Q type cars produced in 2000 and that produced in 2001?

  1. 35,500
  2. 27,000
  3. 22,500
  4. 17,500

Answer: Option A


Total number of Q type cars produced in 2001

    =(60 – 40)% of 4,40,000 = 88,000.

Total number of Q type cars produced in 2000

    =(45 – 30)% of 3,50,000 = 52,500.

Required difference = (88000 – 52500) = 35,500.

Q5. If 85% of the S type cars produced in each year were sold by the company, how many S type cars remain unsold?

Number of S type cars which remained unsold in 2000 = 15% of 35,000

and number of S type cars which remained unsold in 2001 = 15% of 44,000.

Total number of S type cars which remained unsold

    = 15% of (35,000 + 44,000)

    = 15% of 79,000

    = 11,850.
