Solutions to Week 9 Quizzes-
1. Three pipes A, B and C can fill a container from empty to full in half an hour, 20 minutes, and 10 minutes respectively. When the container is empty, all the three pipes are opened. A, B and C discharge organic solutions X,Y and Z respectively. What is the proportion of the solution Z in the liquid in the tank after 3 minutes?
Sol : Part filled by (A + B + C) in 3 minutes = 3[(1/30)+(1/20)+(1/10)] = 11/20
Part filled by C in 3 minutes = 3/10
Required ratio = (3/10)*(2/11) = 6/11
2. In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘SEALING’ be arranged in such a way that the vowels always come together?
Sol : The word ‘LEADING’ has 7 different letters.
When the vowels EAI are always together, they can be supposed to form one letter.
Then, we have to arrange the letters SNLG (EAI).
Now, 5 (4 + 1 = 5) letters can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways.
The vowels (EAI) can be arranged among themselves in 3! = 6 ways.
Required number of ways = (120 x 6) = 720
3. A and B invest in a business in the ratio 3 : 2. If 5% of the total profit goes to charity and A’s share is Rs. 855, the total profit is:
Sol : Let the profit be 100
After paying to charity, A’s share of profits = 95*(3/5)
If A’s share is 57, total profit = 100
If A’s share is 855, total profit = (100/57)*855 = 1500
4. The price of commodity X increases by 40 paise every year, while the price of commodity Y increases by 15 paise every year. If in 2001, the price of commodity X was Rs. 4.20 and that of Y was Rs. 6.30, in which year commodity X will cost 40 paise more than the commodity Y
Sol : Suppose commodity X will cost 40 paise more than Y after z years.
Then, (4.20 + 0.40z) – (6.30 + 0.15z) = 0.40
0.25z = 0.40 + 2.10
z = 2.50/0.25 = 250/25 = 10
Therefore, X will cost 40 paise more than Y 10 years after 2001, ie 2011
5. A man has Rs.480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the total number of notes that he has ?
Sol : Let the number of notes of each denomination be x.
Then x + 5x + 10x = 480
16x = 480
x = 30.
Hence, total number of notes = 3x = 90.
1. Look carefully for the pattern, and then choose which pair of numbers comes next.
42 40 38 35 33 31 28
- 25 22
- 26 23
- 26 24
- 25 23
Sol : This is an alternating subtraction series in which 2 is subtracted twice, then 3 is subtracted once, then 2 is subtracted twice, and so on.
2. 16 26 56 36 46 68 56
- 80 66
- 64 82
- 66 80
- 78 68
Sol : Here, every third number follows a different pattern from the main series. In the main series, beginning with 16, 10 is added to each number to arrive at the next. In the alternating series, beginning with 56, 12 is added to each number to arrive at the next.
3. Study the following table and answer the questions based on it.
(i) The total amount of bonus paid by the company during the given period is approximately what percent of the total amount of salary paid during this period?

- 544.4 lakhs
- 501.11 lakhs
- 446.46 lakhs
- 478.87 lakhs
Sol : Total expenditure of the Company during 2000
= Rs. (324 + 101 + 3.84 + 41.6 + 74) lakhs
= Rs. 544.44 lakhs.
(iii) The ratio between the total expenditure on Taxes for all the years and the total expenditure on Fuel and Transport for all the years respectively is approximately?
