The captain of a cricket team of 11 members is 26 years old and the wicket keeper is 3 years older. If the ages of these two are excluded, the average age of the remaining players is one year less than the average age of the whole team. What is the average age of the team?

A.
23 years
B.
24 years
C.
25 years
D.
None of these

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Let the average age of the whole team by x years.

11x - (26 + 29) = 9(x -1)

11x - 9x = 46

2x = 46

x = 23.

So, average age of the team is 23 years.

The present ages of three persons in proportions 4 : 7 : 9. Eight years ago, the sum of their ages was 56. Find their present ages (in years).

A.
8, 20, 28
B.
16, 28, 36
C.
20, 35, 45
D.
None of these

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Let their present ages be 4x, 7x and 9x years respectively.

Then, (4x - 8) + (7x - 8) + (9x - 8) = 56

20x = 80

x = 4.

Their present ages are 4x = 16 years, 7x = 28 years and 9x = 36 years respectively.

Divya is twice as old as Shruti. What is the difference in their ages?

I. 

Five years hence, the ratio of their ages would be 9 : 5.

 II. 

Ten years back, the ratio of their ages was 3 : 1.

A.
I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer
B.
II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer
C.
Either I or II alone sufficient to answer
D.
Both I and II are not sufficient to answer
E.
Both I and II are necessary to answer

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Let Divya's present age be D years and Shruti's present age b S years

Then, D = 2 x S       D - 2S = 0 ....(i)

 I. D + 5 = 9 ....(ii)
S + 5 5

II. D - 10 = 3 ....(iii)
S - 10 1

From (ii), we get : 5D + 25 = 9S + 45       5D - 9S = 20 ....(iv)

From (iii), we get : D - 10 = 3S - 30       D - 3S = -20 ....(v)

Thus, from (i) and (ii), we get the answer.

Also, from (i) and (iii), we get the answer.

I alone as well as II alone give the answer. Hence, the correct answer is (C).

Three partners shared the profit in a business in the ratio 5 : 7 : 8. They had partnered for 14 months, 8 months and 7 months respectively. What was the ratio of their investments?

A.
5 : 7 : 8
B.
20 : 49 : 64
C.
38 : 28 : 21
D.
None of these

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Let their investments be Rs. x for 14 months, Rs. y for 8 months and Rs. z for 7 months respectively.

Then, 14x : 8y : 7z = 5 : 7 : 8.

Now, 14x = 5       98x = 40y       y = 49 x
8y 7 20

And, 14x = 5       112x = 35z       z = 112 x = 16 x.
7z 8 35 5

x : y : z = x : 49 x : 16 x = 20 : 49 : 64.

E.
Both I and II are necessary to answer

Your Answer: Option (Not Answered)

Correct Answer: Option E

Explanation:

Let us name Ravi, Gagan and Nitin by R, G and N respectively.

 I. R : G : N = 2 : 4 : 7.

II. N = 8750..

From I and II, we get:

When N = 7, then G = 4.

When N = 8750, then G = 4 x 8750 = 5000.
7

Thus, both I and II are needed to get the answer.

Correct answer is (E).

Two goods train each 500 m long, are running in opposite directions on parallel tracks. Their speeds are 45 km/hr and 30 km/hr respectively. Find the time taken by the slower train to pass the driver of the faster one.

A.
12 sec
B.
24 sec
C.
48 sec
D.

Correct Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Relative speed = = (45 + 30) km/hr
= ( 75 x 5 ( m/sec
18
= ( 125 ( m/sec.
6

We have to find the time taken by the slower train to pass the DRIVER of the faster train and not the complete train.

So, distance covered = Length of the slower train.

Therefore, Distance covered = 500 m.

Therefore Required time = ( 500 x 6 ( = 24 sec.
125
