P = 29000 CI = 9352.5 N = 2 years A = P + I = 38,352.5
Substituting the values in
A = P(1 + R/100)^n
Solving we get R = 15%.
The required time will be the LCM of 8, 18 and 15 which is 360 sec or 6 minutes.
Π R^2 = 39424
R = 112
Perimeter of square = 4a = 112
Side of square = 112/4 = 28
Area of square = 28^2 = 784 cm2.
Number of ways = 5C2 * 6C2 *3C1 = 450
Number of ways = 11C2 * 3C3 = 55.
Required number of days = (30 * 36)/18 = 60
Let total income of Ram be x. Then
(100 – 50 – 20 – 5)% of x = 11250
x = 45000.
Let the number be xy
(10x + y) – (10y + x) = 54
x – y = 6 And x + y = 12
Solving the equations we get x = 9 and y = 3
So the number is 93.
Let the age of Geeta’s daughter be x. Then Geeta’s age is 8x.
(8x + 8)/(x + 8) = 10/3
x = 4
Geeta’s present age = 8x = 32 years.
Required number of ways = 4! * 3! * 2! = 288.

P % Q means P is not smaller than Q —————– [ P≥ Q ]
P © Q means P is neither smaller than nor equal to Q — [ P > Q]
P x Q means P is neither greater than nor equal to Q ——— [ P < Q ]
P ∂ Q means P is not greater than Q ———- [ P ≤ Q ]
P @ Q means P is neither greater than nor smaller than Q——- [ P=Q ]
1. (D) Statement – R ∂ K ; K x M ; M @ J
R ≤ K < M = J
I. J © K ——- [ J > K ] II. M © R —- [ M > R ] III. R X J —— [ R < J ] Clearly All the conclusions are true
2 –(C) Statements – Z @ M ; M © K ; K X F

Conclusions – :
I. F © Z ———- [ F > Z ] cannot be said.
II. K X Z ——— [ K < Z ] Surely it is
III. F © M ——– [ F > M ] cannot be said
So Only II is correct.

I. F @ V —- [ F=V ] not sure may nor may not be
II. F X V ——— [ F < V ] Not sure may or may not be
III. E % H ——- [ E ≥ H ] Surely.
But here F= H & H ≤ V so indirectly F≤V so either F= V or F < V but not both at a time, but atleast one has to hold. So either I or II should be there and III is always right. So answer is either I or II & III are correct.
4 –(A) Statements – W © T ; T ∂ N ; N % D

N ≥ T
N ≥ D
I. D X T —– [ D < T ] cannot be said. No idea of relation between them

Directions(1-10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the given questions. Certain words are given in bold to help you to locate them while answering some of the questions.
Akbar was the son of humble parents. His father was a school master. There was never very much money in the house so he didn’t enjoy any luxuries. All he wanted was to learn more and more. Books were not easily available then as they were handwritten and very expensive. Akbar read all the books he could lay his hands on. In due course, he mastered Arabic, Persian, Philosophy and Astronomy and dreamt of getting a position at court. But for this one had to really excel in some field. Also one needed a patron close enough to the Emperor to recommend a newcomer. It was a few months before he could find a patron and a few more months before he could find a suitable opportunity to recommend him to the Emperor who asked what he had learnt and what work he could do.
On hearing the same, he said, “We are pleased to give the young man a chance. Let him take ‘charge of the royal poultry house!” when he heard the news Akbar was heartbroken. He, a scholar; capable of debating with the most learned men asked to look after chicking hens! all the same he got down to work with great determination. His only concern was hens. He saw to it that they were well fed and had clean water, that their living quarters were clean and ‘if a fowl took ill that it was separated from the others and given proper treatment. Meanwhile, the Emperor had forgotten about the scholar he had packed off to mind the hens. But one day while his Finance Minister was reading out the palace accounts to tell the Emperor how much money had been spent can the royal house hold, he mentioned such a low figure that the Emperor sat up.”Have most of the hens died?” he asked ‘No your Majesty’, was the reply- ”The hens are not only alive but are plump and fit.” Send for the scholar! the Emperor demanded.When Akbar came to the palace the Emperor demanded, “Aren’t you feeding the hens properly?” I am sire, only the food is different? I’m feeding them what cannot be used in the royal kitchen, vegetable peels and dough used to seal the vessels while cooking for your Majesty. The hens not only enjoy it, but it is also very good for them. “Good work, we hereby promote you to the rank of royal librarian.” Akbar was bitterly disappointed: He had spent the first thirty years of his life gaining knowledge. How he wished to gain that knowledge and help people. Instead as head of the royal library he would be seeing only books and no people. But he buckled down to organising the library.A year later the Emperor came to visit the library. He was surprised to find each book covered with a packet of silk, velvet or brocade. There were hundreds of books and not one without a cover. “You have used expensive material to cover the books but have not charged us. Surely you are not spending your own money?” Akbar bowed low, “Your Majesty these covers did not cost anything.
