2.A milkman sells two kinds of buttermilk which is a mixture of water and milk. First kind of buttermilk contains 30% water whereas the second kind of buttermilk contains 55% water and the rest is milk. The milkman decides to make a new variety of buttermilk by mixing 4 liters of buttermilk of first kind and 6 liters of buttermilk of second kind. In the new mixture, what will be the ratio of water to milk?
A  5:7
B  2:13
C  9:11
D  40:43
E  None of these

C. 9:11

Quantity of water in 4 litres of irst
kind of buttermilk = 0.3 × 4 = 1.2 litres
Quantity of water in 6 litres of second kind of buttermilk = 0.55 × 6 = 3.3 litres
Total quantity of water in the new mixture = 1.2 + 3.3 = 4.5 litres
Total quantity of milk in the new mixture = 10 – 4.5 = 5.5 litres
Required ratio = 45: 55 = 9:11

3.Manish buys a calculator from Lakshmi which she sells at a loss of 35%. Manish earns a profit of 25% by selling the calculator to Mayank. After using the calculator for some time, Mayank finds that the calculator is defective so he returns the calculator to Manish but he only gets Rs. 5.5 for every Rs.10 he spent on the calculator. What amount will he get from Manish after returning the calculator if Lakshmi buys the calculator for Rs. 1000?
A  Rs.746.28
B  Rs.556
C  Rs.248.63
D  Rs.446.875
E  Cannot be determined

D. Rs.446.875

CP of the calculator for Lakshmi = Rs.1000
SP of the calculator for Lakshmi = CP of the calculator for Manish = 1000×0.65 = Rs.650
SP of the calculator for Manish = CP of the calculator for Mayank = 650 × 1.25 = Rs.812.5
Mayank gets Rs.5.5 on every 10 rupees he spent.
So, for Rs.812.5 he will get 812.5 × 5.5 ÷ 10 = Rs.446.875

4.Mihir borrows Rs.6700 from Sanya for a period of 3 years at simple interest of 9% per annum. If Sanya would have given this money at a compound interest of 10% per annum for the same time period, then the difference in the interests in the two cases would be?
A  Rs. 1637
B  Rs. 2671.2
C  Rs. 671.9
D  Rs. 408.7
E  Rs. 4783

D. Rs. 408.7

Simple interest for 3 years at 9% per annum = 6700×0.09×3 = Rs.1809
Compound interest for 3 years at 10% per annum = 6700(1 + 0.1)
3 – 6700 = Rs.2217.7
Required difference = 2217.7 – 1809 = Rs.408.7

5.1.8 kg dark chocolate is distributed among Karan, Varun and Tina. Tina gets four-fifth of what Karan and Varun together get. Find the share of Tina?

D  59231
E  None of these

B. 60480

To arrange these classes together select any three places. They don’t need any arrangement within themselves as they come one after the other.
Remaining 6 classes have to be arranged in 6 places.
Thus,
9C3 × 6! = 84 × 720 = 60480

7.Student 1 can write in an A4 size paper in 12 minutes, student 2 in 8 minutes and student 3 in 15 minutes. What is the average number of A4 size papers written per hour per student for all three students?

A  126
B  324
C  272
D  418
E  500

B. 324

Number of words that can be formed from VEHICLE such that the vowels are together = 5! × 3!/2! = 360
There are 6 letters in the word SEACOD, out of which there are 3 vowels and 3 consonants.
Let us mark these positions as given below:
(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Now, 3 vowels can be placed at any of the three odd places, marked 1, 3, 5
Number of ways of arranging the vowels = 3! = 6
Also, the 3 consonants can be arranged at the remaining 3 positions.
Number of arrangements = 3! = 6
Total number of ways = 6 x 6 = 36
Required difference = 360 – 36 = 324
