Answer & Explanation


  1. 1

From statement A;

Fathers present age = x years

Monika’s present age = 2/11 x

From statement C and A

2/11x + 4 = 1/4(x+4)

x/4 – 2x/11 = 3

x = 44years


Monika Age = 8 years


  1. 5

From statement A & C


P/h = sin 60

h = 13cm

P = 13 * sqroot(3)/2


b/h = cos 60

b = 13/2

Area of triangle = 1/3 * 13/2 sqroot(3) * 13/2 = 169/12 sqroot(3) cm^2


  1. 3

From statement A & B

Part of vessel filled in 1 hr = 1/16

Part of vessel filled by (pipe + leak) in 1 hour = 1/24

Part of vessel emptied by leak in 1 hour

= 1/24 – 1/16 = -1/48


  1. 1

From statement C

M1D1 = M2D2

4 * 15 = 5 * D2

D2 = 12 days


  1. 2

From all A, B and C

Total age of 14 students and teacher is

= 15 × 16 = 240 years

Age of teacher = 240 – 14 × 13 = 58 years


  1. 1

Average height of the class

= {18 (117 * 18 + 13)/18 + 21 (104 * 21 + 13)/21}/(18 + 21)

= (2119 + 2197)/ 39 = 332/3 = 110 2/3cm


  1. 4

Required answer = {6 * 4(2-1)}/{2*6-4} = 24/(12 – 4) = 24/8 = 3 hrs


  1. 2

Required time = LCM of 21, 18, 24 min = 504 mins = 8.4 hrs


  1. 5

Let the present age of Nayan and Pooja be 18x and 17x respectively


(18x – 9)/(17x – 9) = 15/14

252x – 126 = 255x – 135

3x = 9

x = 3

Leena’s present age = 17× 3 – 9 = 42 years


  1. 4

Ratio of profit P, Q and R

= 24000 × 24 : 32000 × 24 : 30000 × 16 = 6 : 8 : 5

Share of R = 5/19 × 91200 = Rs. 24000
