Infosys exam held on 27th nov 2005 hyderabad

Hello Friends I wrote exam in infosys on 27th nov 2005, Paper was a bit easy. There were 10 puzzles in analytical.

1. A thief was sentenced to jail for 60 days. In jail he earns 7 rs a day on which he works. and rs 3 will be deducted from the amount if he does not work for a day.Now while leaving the jail he takes back with him 170 rs. How many days did he work?

7(w)-3(nw)=170 ---------eq 1
w+nw = 60 -------------eq 2

here 'w' is no of working days and nw is now of days in which he did not work.
Solving these two we get the answer as 35 days

2. A merchant buys cloth from a retailer. By selling the cloth he earns 40% profit. But the meter stick he uses is a false one. So earns a profit of only 39%. And the meter stick he uses to buy the cloth is exact one, now find the length of the meter stick which he uses to sell???( this one stumped me)

3. A man came from usa , he was fat so he decided to walk to reduce fat in his body. So he daily starts walking at exactly at 3pm he walks at 4km/hr for some distance and then 3km/hr on inclined road while going up. And 6km/hr while coming down and 4km/hr on the normal road. While returning also he follows the same road. He returns home at 9pm. Now find the distance he travelled for  oneway!!!!!
(just don't answer it from previous papers friends)

Ans 12 km for one way and 24km for to way..

4. hey this is our favourite question. Yellow yellow blue green is the answer.
I shall type the question now Names are differently given

Four persons A, B, C and D are playing cards. Each person has one card, laid down on the table below him, which has two different colors on either side. The colors visible on the table are Red, Green, Red and Blue. They see the color on the reverse side and give the following comment.

Given that out of the 4 people 2 always lie find out the colors on the cards each person.

Ans

Yellow(Truth)
Blue(truth)
Green(lie)

5. This is also well repeated one.
Three persons A, B &C went for a robbery in different directions and they theft one horse, one mule and one camel. They were caught by the police and when interrogated gave the following statements
A: B has stolen the horse
B: I didn't rob anything.
C: both A & B are false and B has stolen the mule.

The person who has stolen the horse always tell the truth and The person who has stolen the camel always tell the lie. Find who has stolen which animal?
