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

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.

6.

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

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.

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).

Two pipes can fill a tank in 20 and 24 minutes respectively and a waste pipe can empty 3 gallons per minute. All the three pipes working together can fill the tank in 15 minutes. The capacity of the tank is:

A.
 60 gallons
B.
 100 gallons
C.
 120 gallons
D.
 180 gallons

Explanation:

 Work done by the waste pipe in 1 minute = 1 - 1 + 1 15 20 24

 = 1 - 11 15 120

 = - 1 .    [-ve sign means emptying] 40

 Volume of 1 part = 3 gallons. 40

Volume of whole = (3 x 40) gallons = 120 gallons.

A train 240 m long passes a pole in 24 seconds. How long will it take to pass a platform 650 m long?

A.
 65 sec
B.
 89 sec
C.
 100 sec
D.
 150 sec

Explanation:

 Speed = 240 m/sec = 10 m/sec. 24

 Required time = 240 + 650 sec = 89 sec. 10

16.

A jogger running at 9 kmph alongside a railway track in 240 metres ahead of the engine of a 120 metres long train running at 45 kmph in the same direction. In how much time will the train pass the jogger?

A.
 3.6 sec
B.
 18 sec
C.
 36 sec
D.
 72 sec

Explanation:

Speed of train relative to jogger = (45 - 9) km/hr = 36 km/hr.

 = 36 x 5 m/sec 18

= 10 m/sec.

Distance to be covered = (240 + 120) m = 360 m.

 Time taken = 360 sec = 36 sec. 10

17.

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.
 60 sec

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.

 Required time = 500 x 6 = 24 sec. 125

A boatman goes 2 km against the current of the stream in 1 hour and goes 1 km along the current in 10 minutes. How long will it take to go 5 km in stationary water?

A.
 40 minutes
B.
 1 hour
C.
 1 hr 15 min
D.
 1 hr 30 min

Explanation:

 Rate downstream = 1 x 60 km/hr = 6 km/hr. 10

Rate upstream = 2 km/hr.

 Speed in still water = 1 (6 + 2) km/hr = 4 km/hr. 2

 Required time = 5 hrs = 1 1 hrs = 1 hr 15 min. 4 4

8 litres are drawn from a cask full of wine and is then filled with water. This operation is performed three more times. The ratio of the quantity of wine now left in cask to that of water is 16 : 65. How much wine did the cask hold originally?

A.
 18 litres
B.
 24 litres
C.
 32 litres
D.
 42 litres

Explanation:

Let the quantity of the wine in the cask originally be x litres.

 Then, quantity of wine left in cask after 4 operations = x 1 - 8 4 litres. x

 x(1 - (8/x))4 = 16 x 81

 1 - 8 4 = 2 4 x 3

 x - 8 = 2 x 3

3x - 24 = 2x

x = 24.

A bag contains 2 red, 3 green and 2 blue balls. Two balls are drawn at random. What is the probability that none of the balls drawn is blue?

A.
 10 21
B.
 11 21
C.
 2 7
D.
 5 7

Explanation:

Total number of balls = (2 + 3 + 2) = 7.

Let S be the sample space.

Then, n(S) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 7
= 7C2 `
 = (7 x 6) (2 x 1)
= 21.

Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue.

n(E) = Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls.
= 5C2
 = (5 x 4) (2 x 1)
= 10.

 P(E) = n(E) = 10 . n(S) 21
