Answer & Explanation

1. (c) Since there are 6 prime between 47 and 74 as

53, 59,61,67,71,73

& there are two combination of sum of 191 is (53 + 67 + 71) & (59 + 61 + 71)

Difference between largest & smallest no. of both sets are 18 & 12 respectively

Hence 18 is possible difference.


2. (b) Avg. score of Dhoni after 49th Innings = (48 + 48 + 97)/49 i.e. 49

Now requirement of Avg. after 50th innings = (49 + 2)

Hence Score in 50th innings = (50 * 51) – (49 * 49) = 149

3. (b) (n* 42) + 20 = (n* 43)

= x = 20




6. Milk Water

5x                                 3x                        (Initially)

(5x – 25)                      (3x + 5)              (After selling 40 litre of mixture)

5x – 25                        (3x – 15 + 15)   (On adding 15L pure water)

Now Given that…..

(5x – 25)/3x = 5/4

X = 20

New quantity of mixture = 5x – 25 + 3x = 135 litre


7. (b) from question

C + D = (A + B)/2

Since, C = B/3 ……………………..(i)and

D = 5/3 C ………………………….(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

B : C : D = 9 : 3 : 5

Let B,C,D  are 9x, 3x and 5x respectively

Since,  A + B = 2 (C + D)

A + 9x = 2 (3x + 5x)

Hence A = 7x

Therefore, Share of A = (7x/24x)* 9600

= 280 Rs.


8. CP of fresh mango + Packaging cost = Total cost

1 + 0.4 = 1.4 (initial cost)and

1.3 + 0.2 = 1.5 (final cost)

Hence, Increase in cost = [(1.5 – 1.4)/1.4]* 100 = 7.14%


9. Let he scores ‘x’ marks in Math


80 + 66 + x = 80% of (100 + 100 + 200)

X = 320 – 146

= 174

% of math marks = (174 * 100)/ (200 = 87%


10. (a) CP = 100/120 = 10/12 (Since he purchase 120 g & pays Rs.100)

And, SP = 135/90 = 3/2

Actual MP = 180 & Actual SP = [135 with 25% discount]

Therefore, Profit % = (18/12 – 10/12)* 100/ (10/12) = 80%

English (Mix Quiz)

Directions (Q. 1- 5): Rearrange the following six sentences (A), (B), (C), (E) and (F) in the proper sequence to form a meaningful paragraph; then answer the questions given below them.
(A) There are a number of items in the atomic energy programme which are being made indigenously.
(B) Given the overall energy situation in India, the use of nuclear power in some measure is inescapable even while thermal and hydro power continue to be the dominant elements.
(C) However, commercial aspects of exploiting nuclear capabilities, especially for power-generation programmes, have been recently given high priority.
(D) Atomic energy programmes have been subject to severe restrictions for very obvious reasons as the Department of Atomic Energy is becoming self-reliant in areas in which only a few countries have such capability.
(E) Even to meet these nuclear power requirements, India critically requires a commercial-level power-generation capability, with its commensurate safety and nuclear waste management arrangements.
(F) Thus, in the Indian context energy security is also crucial, perhaps much more than it is for the USA, because India imports a good part of its crude oil requirements, paying for it with precious foreign exchange.
