QA- Q22- A fuel merchant purchased 20L of petrol at 50/L and sold 12L of it @ Rs55/L. To the remaining, he added 40% kerosene, the cost of which is Rs20/L. If he sold the mixture @ Rs. 55/L. Then, find the overall profit?


Very novice doubt here- In the solution they have taken 40% means 40% of 8L and so 3.2L and total mixture is 8+3.2=11.2L

But where it is written 40% of petrol quantity? I could have taken

x/(x+8)=40/100

3x=16

x=16/3L is the quanity of kerosene and so total mixture quantity=(8+16/3)L


Did I misunderstand the question? Wastes 298sec and come with -1.

its usually 40% of the mixture 

in this case petrol...

and you cannot add kerosene and then make 40%

in that case, question woulve been

the final solution had 40% kerosene

@karancool93 you mean we should take petrol as mixture here? Oh then solution is right, but when should I consider such case, is it when solvent is mixed with solvent?

Guys, small doubt. Aimcat 1805 Q09.

1. After his historical meeting with Mao Zedong in 1962, Richard Nixon wrote in

    his diary of what he called

2. "the most moving moment probably" of the hour long encounter:


The solution says it should be "probably the most moving moment" and hence fragment 2 is grammatically incorrect. 

My question is, are we supposed to correct the grammar within quotes? Going by the framing of the paragraph, this seems to be a direct quote from Nixon.

Yes, grammar within quotes should also be correct.

Please somebody explain Q40 in Varc...Even C seems to be correct. (is there any other logic of ruling out C except for the "Inverse-Direct relation" as given in the text solution?)
