Question 1 |

Spores of a fungus, called late blight, grow and spread infection rapidly. These pathogens were responsible for the Irish potato famine of the mid-19th century. These seem to have attacked the tomato crops in England this year. The tomato crops have reduced and the price of the crop has risen up.

A | $27 |

B | $18 |

C | $45 |

D | $486 |

Question 1 Explanation:

See last 3 lines only answer is 45-27=18

A | 16 |

B | 56 |

C | 112 |

Question 4 |

There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of one litre every hour in A, it gets filled up like 10, 20, 40, 80, 160… in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 litres , second hour it has 20, and so on). If tank B is 1/16 filled after 4 hours, what is the total duration required to fill it completely?

A | 8 hrs |

B | 25 hrs |

C | 27 hrs |

D | 5 hrs |

Question 5 |

6 persons standing in queue with different age group, after two years their average age will be 43 and seventh person joined with them. Hence the current average age has become 45. Find the age of seventh person?

A | 43 |

B | 69 |

C | 52 |

D | 31 |

Question 5 Explanation:

Total age of 6 persons is x hours, after two years total age of 6 persons is x+12
Average age of 6 persons is after two years is 43
So (x+12)/6=43,then solve x,
After 7th person is added then (x+7th person age)/7=45
So we will get 7th person age easily

Question 6 |

Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack.
Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 = i = 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it's a player's turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coinis the third coin from the top. Then

A | In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 1-move |

B | In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 0-move |

C | In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move |

D | Alice has no winning strategy |

Question 7 |

Question 8 |

Susan made a block with small cubes of 8 cubic cm volume to make a block ,3 small cubes long, 9 small cubes wide and 5 small cubes deep. She realizes that she has used more small cubes than she really needed. She realized that she could have glued a fewer number of cubes together to lock like a block with same dimensions, if it were made hollow. What is the minimum number of cubes that she needs to make the block?

A | 114 |

B | 135 |

C | 21 |

D | 71 |

Question 8 Explanation:

((3*9*5))-((3-2)*(9-2)*(5-2)) so answer is 114

Question 9 |

There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 liter every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 liters, second hour it has 20 liters and so on). If tank B is 1/32 filled of the 21 hours, what is total duration of hours required to fill it completely?

A | 25 |

B | 26 |

C | 5 |

D | 27 |

Question 9 Explanation:

for every hour water in tank in B is doubled,
Let the duration to fill the tank B is x hours.
x/32 part of water in tank of B is filled in 21 hours,
Next hour it is doubled so,
2*(x/32) part i.e (x/16) part is filled in 22 hours,
Similarly (x/8)th part in 23 hours,(x/4)th part is filled in 24 hours,
(x/2)th part is filled in 25 hours, (x)th part is filled in 26 hours
So answer is 26 hours.

Question 10 |

A person is manufacturing a house. He bought 20 ropes of wire which has a density of 300 Kg/m3. The height of the building to be constructed is 40 m.

Question 11 |

In the reading room of a library, there are 23 reading spots. Each reading spot consists of a round table with 9 chairs placed around it. There are some readers such that in each occupied reading spot there are different numbers of readers. If in all there are 36 readers, how many reading spots do not have even a single reader?

A | 8 |

B | 16 |

C | 15 |

D | none |

Question 11 Explanation:

23 reading spots, Each reading spot consists of 9 chairs placed around it so There are some readers such that in each occupied reading spot there are different numbers of readers.
For each table different no of persons are sat,so for first table 1 person is sit,2nd table 2 persons are sit 36
readers means(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8) so 8 tables are filled so 23-8=15 reading spots does not have single reader.

Question 12 |

A toy train produces 10 different sounds when it moves around a circular toy track of radius 5 m at 10 m per min. However, the toy train is defective and it now produces only 2 different tunes at random. What are the odds that the train produces for consecutive music tones of the same type?

A | 1 in 16 |

B | 1 in 4 |

C | 1 in 8 |

D | 1 in 32 |

Question 12 Explanation:

Initially it produces 10 sounds and the defect came and now it produces only 2 different sounds and consecutively so there are totally 2 sounds and we have to select on sound and the probability is ½ and it produces the same sound concecutively for 2 times so the probability becomes ½*1/2 ie ¼

Question 13 |

A triangle is made from a rope. The sides of the triangle are 25 cm, 11 cm and 31 cm. What will be the area of the square made from the same rope?

C | 280.125 |

D | 240 |

Question 13 Explanation:

Add all sides 25+11+31 to get rope length rope length =67,rope is made in to as square
So side of square is 67/4=16.75 and so area is 16.75*16.75=280.5625

For one square meter it takes 17 bricks, For 20m2 total no of bricks are 17*20=340

Question 15 |

A, B, C weighted separately 1st A, B, C ,then A & B together, then B & C together,then C & A together at last A,B and C together, the last weight was 167, then what will be the average weight of the 7 reading?
