A. 45
B. 60
C. 75
D. 90

Ans. D

Explanation:
Let number of notes of each denomination be x. Then x + 5x + 10x = 480 16x = 480 x = 30. Hence, total number of notes = 3x = 3 x 30 = 90.

Question 11
One-third of Rahul’s savings in National Savings Certificate is equal to one-half of his savings in Public Provident Fund. If he has Rs. 1, 50,000 as total savings, how much has he saved in Public Provident Fund ?

A. Rs. 30,000
B. Rs. 50,000
C. Rs. 60,000
D. Rs. 90,000

Ans. C

Explanation:
Let savings in N.S.C and P.P.F. be Rs. x and Rs. (150000 – x) respectively. Then, 1/3 x = (1/2) * (150000 – x) (x/3) + (x/2) = 75000 (5/6) x = 75000 X = 90000 Therefore Savings in Public Provident Fund = 150000 – 90000= Rs. 60000

Question 12
A man has some hens and cows. If the number of heads is 48 and the number of feet equals 140, then the number of hens will be:

A. 22
B. 23
C. 24
D. 26

Ans. D

Explanation:
Let the number of hens be x and the number of cows be y. Then, x + y = 48…. (i) and 2x + 4y = 140 x + 2y = 70…. (ii) Solving (i) and (ii) we get: x = 26, y = 22. The required answer = 26.

Question 13
X and Y can do a piece of work in 20 days and 12 days respectively. X started the work alone and then after 4 days Y joined him till the completion of the work. How long did the work last ?

A. 6 days
B. 10 days
C. 15 days
D. 20 days

Ans. B

Explanation:
Work done by X in 4 days (1/20) * 4 = 1/5 Remaining work = 1- (1/5) = 4/5 (X + Y)’s 1 day’s work (1/20) + (1/20) = 8 / 60 = 2/ 15 Work done by X and Y in 1 day = 2/15 So, 4/5 work will be done by X and Y in (15/2)* (4/5) = 6 days Hence, total time taken = 6+ 4 = 10 days

Question 14
The difference between a two-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging the positions of its digits is 36. What is the difference between the two digits of that number ?

A. 3
B. 4
C. 9
D. cannot be determined

Ans. B

Explanation:
Let the ten’s digit be x and unit’s digit be y. Then, (10x + y) – (10y + x) = 36 9(x – y) = 36 x – y = 4.

Question 15
On dividing a number by 5, we get 3 as remainder. What will the remainder when the square of the number is divided by 5 ?

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. 4

Ans. D

Explanation:
Let the number be x and on dividing x by 5, we get k as quotient and 3 as remainder. x = 5k + 3 x2 = (5k + 3)2 = (25k2 + 30k + 9) = 5(5k2 + 6k + 1) + 4 On dividing x2 by 5, we get 4 as remainder.

Question 16
Sum of squares of two numbers is 404 and sum of two numbers is 22.Then product of two Numbers ?

A. 20
B. 40
C. 80
D. none of these

Ans. B

Explanation:
According to the given conditions x + y = 22 and x2 + y2 = 404 now (x + y)2 = x2 + y2 + 2xy so 222 = 404 + 2xy so xy = 80/2 = 40.

Question 17

A. 2a+b<0
B. 4a<3b
C. a>4b
D. none of these

A. 10%
B. 12%
C. 15%
D. none of these

Ans. D

Explanation:
(3/2) x – x/ (2/3) = 0 Therefore % error = 0%

A. BDACE
B. DEABC
C. BDECA
D. BCEDA

Ans. D

Explanation:
Comparing statements B and D for starters as per the options, statement B scores over statement D. BD versus BC (as per the options) – By several reading of the sentences it is possible to see that BC is mandatory or that statement C cannot be placed next to any other statement available except immediately after statement B because of its ‘there is similar neglect. The neglect is mentioned only in statement B. BCED and BCDE would have been very difficult to decide. Fortunately we are not required to decide this, because BCED is the only choice. Statement A then falls automatically at the end of the paragraph. Hence, the correct answer is option D

Question 30
A. This is now orthodoxy to which I subscribe – up to a point. B. It emerged from the mathematics of chance and statistics.
C.Therefore the risk is measurable and manageable.
DThe fundamental concept: Prices are not predictable, but the mathematical laws of chance can describe their fluctuations.
E.This is how what business schools now call modern finance was born.

A. ADCBE
B. EBDCA
C. ABDCE
D. DCBEA

Ans. B

Explanation:
The best way to solve this one is not through the options. If you read the sentence several times there are two possibilities for the ‘it’ in statement B. The ‘it’ is either ‘The fundamental concept’ in D (i.e. BD) or ‘modern finance’ in E (i.e. EB). No other combination even as per the given options (CB and AB) would make sense if the ‘it’ is worked upon. BD is not in the options. Now, one has to merely check if EBDCA makes sense and there is no other option to compare with. Hence, the correct answer is option B
