Answer & Explanation

1. Total price of 5 shirts = [100 + 10 * (5)2]

Ave. Price = 350/5 = 70


2. Total no of passengers = 10 * 20 = 200

= In the 9th compartment the total passengers

= (12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20)

= 144

No of passengers in the 10th coach = 200 – 144 = 56


3. Let no. of 3 wheelers = x

No. of wheels = 3x

No. of two wheelers = 2x

No. of wheels = 2 * 2x = 4x

No of four wheelers = 2x

No of wheels = 4 * 2x = 8x

Average no of wheels = (3x + 4x + 8x) / (2x + x + 2x)

= 15x/5x = 3


4. Milk : water

74%                                  26% (initially)

76%                                24% (after replacement)

Left amount = Initial amount { 1 – replaced amount/ total amount}

24 = 26 (1 – 7/k)

K = 91 litre


5. (b)


6. (b)




8. (b)


9. (d)


10. P/100 + P = q/100

100p = 100q + pq

P – q = pq/100


11. P1 = K T/V

P2 = K x 1.4T/0.8       à K x 7T/4

Ratio = (P2 – P1)/ P1 = P2/P1 – 1

= 7T/4T – 1 = ¾

New pressure will increased by 75%


12. Margin time -> 20 * 0.92 = 10 minutes

(23 * 40 * 0.90)/(20 * 0.92) = 45

Required time is 45 minutes  than previous time 450 minutes = 7 ½ hrs.


13. Efficiency of Eklavya = 16.66%

Efficiency of Faizal = 8.33%

Total efficiency of both = 25%

So, they can do actual work in 4 days

3 times work required 12 days.


14. n (x + 1)/2 = x * 55n/100

n = 10

Total work is 55 Man days


15. Let n be initial no. of worker, then

n * 4 = n + (n – 20) + (n – 40) +………………….+ (n – 120)

4x = 7x – 420

x = 140 workers

Mr. Padmanabhan (1) that there were risks (2) with full capital account (3). Yet, he felt that resisting liberalization over an extended period could prove futile and counter-productive.

Corporates could use transfer pricing to get around capital account restrictions, he said. However, keeping any restriction for too long could prove self-defeating as people ended up finding new methods of bypassing that (8), he added.
