Answer & Explanation
  1. 4; Number of students in college C5

In 2014 = 15/100 * 30000 = 4500

In 2013, 12/100 * 25000 = 3000


Required % Increase = (4500 – 3000)/3000 * 100 = 50%



For 2013:

C1 —- 17 × 250 = 4250

C2 —- 20 × 250 = 5000

C3 —- 21 × 250 = 5250

C4 —- 10 × 250 = 2500

C5 —- 12 × 250 = 3000

C6 —- 15 × 250 = 3750

C7 —- 5 × 250 = 1250


For 2014:

C1 —- 16 * 300 = 4800

C2 —- 22 * 300 = 6600

C3 —- 20 * 300 = 6000

C4 —- 8 * 300 = 2400

C5 —- 15 * 300 = 4500

C6 —- 13 * 300 = 3900

C7 —- 6 * 300 = 1800


Percentage Increase

C1 —- 12.94%

C2 —- 32%

C3 —- 14.28%

C4 —- Decrease

C5 —- 50%

C6 —- 4%

C7 —- 44%


Hence, minimum increase is in the college C6


  1. 3

Hence, decrease is in the college C4.


  1. 4

Required % = [(17 + 20) * 250]/[(16 + 22) * 300] * 100 = 81% approx


  1. 1

Required ratio = 15 × 250 : 13 × 300 = 25 : 26


  1. 5

Combining the both statements A and B will not give the perimeter of semicircle.


  1. 3

From A,

30/100 N1 = 40/100 * 90

N1 = 120

From B,

20/100 N2 = 36/100 * 50

N2 = 90


Combining both statements A & B:

N1/N2 = 120/90 = 4/3 = 4:3


  1. 1


From statement A,

Required answer = 40/100 * 82 = 32


English Quiz

Directions (Q.1-10): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s event-filled visit to the United States, from June 6-8, has just ended, though his oratorical flourishes during his address to a joint meeting of the U.S. Congress still reverberate across the globe. The 3,800-word Joint Statement is available with the public. Ignoring the euphoria is not easy but due diligence about outcomes may be in order. We need to make a distinction between good copy and finite results. The Prime Minister came through as more restrained this time when compared to previous occasions. An exception was his address to the U.S. Congress. Even here, the Prime Minister was more statesman than politician. For instance, Mr. Modi displayed a high degree of strategic wisdom in not launching an attack on China by name. Nor was there any criticism of the U.S. for implicitly acquiescing in Pakistan’s employment of terror as a strategic instrumentality vis-a-vis India. The Prime Minister was also careful not to highlight the difference in approach between Capitol Hill and the U.S. administration with regard to Pakistan’s record on terrorism, and the sale of F-16 fighter aircraft to that country. Analyzing the main components of the Prime Minister’s visit viz. his bilateral meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama, his address to the U.S. Congress, his meeting with the U.S.-India Business Council and also the contents of the Joint Statement, it is undeniable that a great deal of ground was covered. Nevertheless, it would be difficult to endorse the sentiment set out in the Joint Statement: of the two countries providing “global leadership on issues of shared interest”. Visuals of the high-level bilateral meeting between Mr. Modi and Mr. Obama — though visuals do not necessarily reflect the atmosphere at such meetings — also give the impression that it lacked “the spark” of previous encounters. The length of the Joint Statement notwithstanding, the many specific takeaways are not many. Important among these are: (i) creation of a $20 million U.S.-India Clean Energy Finance initiative and a $40 million U.S.-India Catalytic Solar Finance Program, with equal financial contribution from the two countries and (ii) an announcement that the U.S. recognizes India as a “major defense partner”. In both cases, the benefits are not as unalloyed as they may seem. The former could impede India’s efforts to obtain funds from non-U.S. approved sources, while the major defence partner label is unlikely to lead to a firm commitment by the U.S. to part with the entire range of “dual-use technologies”, as export of sensitive U.S. technologies is solely dictated by U.S. law. The coincidence of India of being admitted into the 34-member Missile Technology Control Regime during the Prime Minister’s visit to Washington adds little to India’s hopes of securing the entire range of “dual-use technologies”. Announcement of the start of preparatory work in India for six Westinghouse nuclear reactors does mark a significant thaw in civil nuclear matters after the deep freeze of many years. When completed, this should substantially raise the share of nuclear energy in India’s energy mix. However, while the Joint Statement avers that this had become possible on account of India ratifying the Convention on Supplementary Compensation for Nuclear Damage, it left unsaid whether it also takes into account the specific obligations imposed under India’s draconian Nuclear Liability law.
