1. The speed of a car is 45 km/ hr. The amount of distance travelled by the car in 240 minutes is same as the distance travelled by a train in 25 minutes. What is the speed of the train in km/hr?

A. 120 km/hr

B. 432 km/hr

C. 240 km/hr

D. 440 km/hr

View Answer

Ans : B

Explanation: 240 minutes = 240/60 = 4 hours

Distance travelled by the car in 4 hours = 45×4 = 180 kms

Time taken by the train to travel 180 kms = 25 minutes = 25/60 hours

Speed of the train = Distance/ time = 180/ (25/60) = 432 km/ hr

2. Pipe A alone takes 30 minutes to fill a cistern. Pipe A was turned off after working for 10 minutes. The rest of the cistern is filled by pipe B in 40 minutes. How much time in minutes does pipe B take to fill the cistern alone in hours?

A. 1

B. 2

C. 3

D. 4

View Answer

Ans : A

Explanation: Time taken by the pipe A to fill the cistern = 30 minutes = 0.5 hours

Fraction of the cistern filled in one minute = 1/30

Fraction of cistern filled in 10 minutes = (1/30)×10 = 1/3

Fraction of cistern yet to be filled = 1-1/3 = 2/3

2/3 of cistern is filled by pipe B in 40 minutes. Time taken to fill a complete cistern is 1/ (2/3) × 40

= 60 minutes = 1 hour

5. Find the amount lost by Hannah when she sold a hand wash at a loss of 22%, if she bought it for $150.

A. 29

B. 33

C. 42

D. 36

View Answer

% Loss=22%

S.P=[(100-loss%)/100]*C.P

=[(100-22)/100]*150

S.P= 117

Amount Loss= C.P-S.P

=150-117

6. Pam can complete a job in 36 days. She started the work and after 6 days, Leslie joined her. They completed the job in 12 more days. Find the number of days in which Leslie alone can complete it.

A. 28 days

B. 24 days

C. 12 days

D. 16 days

View Answer

Ans : B

Explanation: Let say PAM 1 day work = P

Hence total work = 36P

Pam worked for 6 + 12 = 18 Days

Work done by PAM = 18P

Remaining working = 36P - 18P = 18P

Work done by Leslie in 12 days = 18P

=> Work done by Leslie in 24 days = 36P

Hence Leslie alone can complete it. in 24 Days.
