Answer & Explanation

(1)  3     (2) 4     (3) 2    dog : hare = 3*3 leaps of hare :5*1 9:5     (4) 4
(5) Let the quantity of the wine in the cask originally be x litres.
Then, quantity of wine left in cask after 4 operations = [x(1-8/X)4]litres
= [x(1-8/X)4] = 16/81
x = 24
(6) 1
(7) Speed of the first train = 120/10 = 12 m/sec.
Speed of the second train =120/15= 8 m/sec.
Relative speed = (12 + 8) = 20 m/sec.
Therefore Required time =(120 + 120)/20  = 12 sec.
(8) 1 Let Arun’s weight by X kg.
According to Arun, 65 < X < 72
According to Arun’s brother, 60 < X < 70.
According to Arun’s mother, X <= 68
The values satisfying all the above conditions are 66, 67 and 68.
Required average = 66 + 67 + 68/3            = 201/3                = 67 kg.
(9) 4
L.C.M. of 252, 308 and 198 = 2772.
So, A, B and C will again meet at the starting point in 2772 sec. i.e., 46 min. 12 sec.
(10) 3
