Three cats are roaming in a zoo n such a way that when cat A takes 5 steps, B takes 6 steps and C takes 7 steps.But the 6 steps of A are equal to the 7 steps of B and 8 steps of C. what is the ratio of their speeds?

A.

140:144:147

B.

40:44:47

C.

15:21:28

D.

252:245:240

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

Frequency of step of A:B:C = 5 : 6 : 7

But in terms of size of step, 6A = 7B = 8C

Therefore, Ratio of speeds of A, B and C = 5/6 : 6/7 : 7/8 = 140 : 144 : 147

Vipin can walk a certain distance in 52 days when he rests 10hours a day.how long will he take for twice the distance if he walks twice as fast as and rest twice as long each day

A.

75

B.

100

C.

182

D.

150

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Vipin rests for 10 hours a day. As there are 24 hours in a day, the time he walks is 24 – 10 = 14 hours.

Total time taken = 52days X 14 = 728 hours

As distance is directly proportional to time, to cover double the distance he needs double the time.

That is, 2 x 728 hours.

But, as speed is inversely proportional to time and directly proportional to distance, double distance will require double speed.

That is, total time is

2/2 x 728 = 728 hours.

In the new situation, he rests for twice as much that is,

10 x 2 = 20 hours. Therefore he only walks for 24 – 20 = 4 hours.

If the number of days required is x,

4x = 728

x = 728/4

= 182 days

One year ago a father was four times as old as his son .after 6 year his age exceed than twice of his son age by 9 year. Ratio of their present age is what

A.

30 yrs.

B.

33 yrs.

C.

20 yrs

D.

11 yrs

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Lets denote the ages of the man and his son as M and S respectively.

One year ago their ages were M – 1 and S – 1 respectively.

So from the first statement, M – 1 = 4 * (S – 1) or

M – 4*S = -3 ← Equation 1

In 6 years time both would be older by 6 years, or M+6 and S+6.

From the second statement,

M + 6 = 2 * (S +6) + 9, or

M – 2*S = 15 ← Equation 2

Subtracting Equation 1 from Equation 2, we get:

M – 2*S – (M – 4*S) = 15 – (-3)

That is, 2*S = 18 , or S = 9. Therefore the Son’s present age is 9.

From Equation 2, M = 15 + 2*S or M = 15 + 18 = 33.

Therefore the Father’s present age is 33.

An alloy of copper and tin weighing 1kg consist of 70% copper, how much copper should be added to it so that it would contain 75% copper? What will be the weight of the new alloy?

A.

30

B.

200

C.

90

D.

120

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Suppose that x kg copper is to be added to the 1 kg alloy.

Now, we know that, the 1 kg alloy has 0.7 kg copper.

And, final percentage of copper in alloy is 75%.

(0.7+x)/(1+x)=75/100=3/4(0.7+x)/(1+x)=75/100=3/4

On cross-multiplication,

2.8+4x = 3+3x

x= 0.2

Therefore,

**0.2 kg or 200 g copper should be added to make it’s percentage in the alloy 75%**.

The ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in a class is 4:5. If there are a total of 54 students in the class, then what is the number of boys in the class?

A.

32

B.

40

C.

36

D.

24

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Ratio of boys is to girl = 4:5.

Total number of boys = 4x

Total number or girls = 5x

Total number of students : 4x+5x= 9x

9x= 54, x=6.

Total number of boys = 4x = 4×6=24.

If a carton containing dozen mirrors is dropped, which of the following cannot be the ratio of broken mirrors to unbroken mirrors?

A.

2: 1

B.

3: 1

C.

3: 2

D.

1: 1

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

It is 3:2 I feel because on adding all the ratios only 3:2 results in 5 i.e 3+2=5 and 5 is not a factor of 12

Or

Here your first option is 2:1

Now splitting 12 in the Ratio 2:1 we get 8 and 4. So, it is possible.

Next you have 3:1 this is also possible ratio as it can be 9 and 3.

Now if we look at 3:2 then it is obviously not possible to split 12 into ratio of 3 and 2.

But still for last one we have7:5 this makes a total of 12. So 7 broken and 5 unbroken is also possible.

So, the correct answer is 3:2.

The incomes of A,B and C are in a ratio of 7:9:12 and the expenditures are in a ratio of 8:9:15. If A saves 1/4 of its income then what will be the saving ratio of A ,B and C?

A.

56: 99: 69

B.

99: 56: 69

C.

56:99:69

D.

49: 69: 56

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

if u assume x and y and solving u will be annoyed.

Provided 1/4 is the saving, 3/4 is the expenditure

so Expenditure=3, Income = 4

first make A’s Income and Expenditure ratio parts as below

A

7*8 9*7 12*7

8*7 9*7 15*7

Now make first one as 4 parts by multiplying 4 and second make 3 parts by multiplying 3

A’s Income = 7*8*4 = 224

A’s Expenditure = 8*7*3=168 Saving = 56

Now

B’s Income = 9*8*4 = 288

B’s Expenditure = 9*7*3=189 Saving = 99

A’s Income = 12*8*4 = 384

B’s Expenditure = 15*7*3=315 so Saving = 69

Ratio 56:99:69.
